dpfan32: That's what Saturn really looks like :) Very nice photo!
"picture editor from NASA" says it all ;) All NASA pictures are pure CGI.

These days it would be impossible to distinguish between a real Saturn and a well-made computer generated Saturn.

maxnimo: What impresses me even more than the camera is the lens. It makes most other non-Fuji primes look like plastic toys by comparison.

I was referring to the optical quality as observed from the samples here. I'm not qualified to comment on the construction quality at this time, as I don't know if this lens is made of plastic, cardboard or wood.

maxnimo: I've found that watching casual, unposed photos of people in my life much more satisfying than those which are perfectly posed.

And speaking of stuffed, all my family portraits from 90 years ago look stiff and lifeless, like those humanoid props in a storefront display.

Example: A photo of my mom baking a cake in her kitchen is way more precious than one posed in a studio setting. It's sort of like a photo of a tiger in the wild compared to a stuffed tiger on a pedestal.

rubank: Alternative facts?

Alternative facts are quite possible. If 20 people look at only a small part of a picture they all report a different color, yet they are all correct. That's why seeing the entire picture is so important, both in art and politics.

maxnimo: Best news I ever heard! Now all I need is a 1 Megapixel camera and get beautiful 100 Megapixel images out of it!

Just imagine, with as little as 100 pixels your could easily have an ISO of 1 billion.

I can't see the video at all. Don't know what sort of crazy stupid video app they're using now. I have no trouble seeing videos on hundreds of other sites.

I can just imagine someone launching one of these things in a club, and a software glitch occurs. The next morning police find 800 bodies with their heads sliced open.

I really wanted to hear the natural sound of the event, but all I got was blasting music instead.

LackingCommonSensor: This is almost the perfect camera for me. I am thinking of selling off my DSLR and getting one. I know I could save $$ waiting for them to go on sale, but I could be dead by that time.

From my experience a standard portrait looks best from 50mm to 100mm. If you go higher the faces start to look flatter; if you go lower they start to look unnatural and eventually become comical.
Now if you're doing a group portrait you might be able to barely squeeze by with 35mm without looking too unnatural.

The ultimate bag would be one that's bigger on the inside, so you could cram 500 cubic meters into a wallet size pouch. It can be done with quantum sub-space compression.

So you don't ever again expect to take portraits, or photos of more distant subjects?

On article Feisty upstart: Hands-on with the Fujifilm X-T20 (341 comments in total)

Looks to me like the touch-focus is one huge advantage over the X-T2. I hope they come out with the X-T2s before it's too late.
