Everyone seems to have same opinion...what I want to know, what is with the old triangle hat guy and the Sturgeon?

Wonderful pictures...at $900, is this camera all metal body, weather sealed, and with mfa adjustment in case of the photographer wanting to use fast glass?

Why can't Fuji release a complete product?

shadabkhan: Does anyone know if I could travel by putting my camera body in checked baggage and lenses in carry on ?

That camera has a clock so is obviously bomb capable but the lens is not shaped like a stick of tnt...oh wait.

The real reason for the ban

I have a question (and I may be mixing things up)...digital FF cameras can't take full advantage of lenses faster than 2.0. This may only have to do with focusing or is it broader than that?

I wonder if the court has switched to digital cameras, they are pretty hide bound and don't allow photographs in the courtroom. Judge Judy would be a perfect example for them to emulate.

steelhead3: Interesting how some reviewers were invited to go to the Sony factory in Thailand and others got to stay in Japan.

I just mentioned that it was interesting, I didn't mean to infer anything. The open ended question mark leaves me baffled though.

In reply to:

nandbytes: Does this produce a raw file/output?

Also does this work by taking multiple exposures? So is it practical for handheld shooting?

It is raw output...pretty tough to handhold and do all the manipulations necessary (I am sure someone could do it).

WGChsv: This is pretty cool. Certainly cheaper than an actual ND grad. Would love to see an in-depth review and comparison to some high quality glass ND grads.

I would expect better results than with a graduated ND filter (no color casts).

zakaria: Now we expect a pentax 645Z review finally!!

Obviously DP likes Fuji and not Pentax...Pentax is probably working on the 100mpix model since the 645 has been out for a long time.

FLruckas: Where are the Sonys, the Fujis, the m4/3s?...

In the real world.....

It's.....

Just kidding....
Well....
Sort of....

:-)

Here is a quote from the article...take it as you wish

There's another crew here, too. A big one, made up of strikingly similar-looking men carrying new and very expensive equipment. They're doing their best, pushing through the crowded room with stabilized Sonys held aloft, attempting overhead tracking shots with pivoted carbon-fiber stabilizing rigs that resemble hip-bones from some prototype killer robot. They're wearing secret service-style earpieces, and won't say who they're shooting for.

Glen Barrington: Am I the only one who noticed those photos are out of focus? That last one might not be OOF, but the others are for sure.

DP is not enamored with AF capabilities of the 1dx.

I feel sorry for them in that last picture...why overburden yourself with those old time cameras?

entoman: Can you imagine carrying these monster cameras up and down mountains? I was very fortunate to be able to work alongside a BBC film crew shooting spectacled bears in Ecuador a month ago, for the next major series of wildlife films. Those guys are absolutely amazing - they are carrying tons of this stuff up mountains at 5am every day for a month at a time, shooting stunning film all day long, and then carrying it all back down again each afternoon. Dedication just doesn't begin to describe it.

You realize of course that this is the same era as an IBM punch card with a sensor of iso 25 that can only shoot at 24 fps with months of color grading and matching sound with the film (talky's)?

Quantum Scientist: I wonder why Sigma does not make any Fuji X Mount Lenses?

They see themselves as an extension of the Canon ,Nikon duopoly which is breaking down.

Weight doesn't equate with quality anymore...video cameras have so many dongles that it is hard to even find the camera. Still cameras are another matter, for pure image quality stand point, I will put up the new meduim format cameras as well as the new Sony's, 810's and new Canons against the D5 any day.
