Michel Savage's recent activity

  • Fixed screen. That is most unfortunate. I often go to my wife`s XA-3 for its articulated screen. I wished my XE-2 had such an articulated screen...

  • Commented on article Fujifilm X-A3 Review

    Experienced/published photog here, past with Canon mostly, and some Nikon. The Fuji XA-3 is my go-to cam. Light, responsive (not "sluggish" as the reviewer says), takes good JPEGs, etc. I'm happy...

  • Yes, Old cameras, your words are more balanced than mine. I wrote on the impulse of emotion, of disappointment. I had as Sony RX100. It broke down one week after warranty expiration. I swore never...

  • I am cruelly disappointed. Been waiting day after day for these to come out. Even sold my Fuji A2 for that. Big bad blow against Nikon and its reputation: the DL disaster will always remain in...

  • The release of the DL line was - firmly - supposed to be January 17, 2017. This is crazy. I was due to change cameras 6 months ago, and waited for the DL line to at last come out. But seeing the ...
  • Replied in DL and Nikon 1
    So much secrecy about DL means "problems we prefer to not disclose"...
  • B&H Photo says January 2017... A bit late.

  • Said exactly the same at the beginning of this thread. Additionally, in my view, if you have to use RAW because the JPEGs are so bad, the camera isn't worth it. I've used RAW before with Canon and...

  • Indeed, I'm debating with myself now: G7XII, LX10/15, or DL24-85. Each has its pros and cons. But ultimately, lens quality is most important.

  • Raw processed pics are far better than OOC JPEGs. Maybe using the "vivid" mode exagerates contrast.... But nice RAWs for sure.

  • Sorry. Not Kodak. Eura Ferrania medium format 120. Paid 5$ new...

  • Year, about 1957. For 5$, my mother bought me a 120 film-size plastic camera (I think it was Kodak). It had two settings: cloudy and sunny. But for many years, I dreamed of a SLR. Finally, I got a...

  • Apparently yes, from what I could gather in the forums in the years past. I might add that I also had problems with the lens getting stuck in position. I loved that camera, and it helped taking...

  • Damian. I had my RX100 fail jusr after warranty period, had it fixed twice after that, and kept failing supposedly because of humidity. Now I don't want to generalize, but after 60 years of...

  • Yes, GlobalGuyUSA. A protective bag at all times. I live in Thailand so moisture protection is a must, at all times (at least for this camera model). Here, mu Fujis keep clickin without any...

  • Still not weather proof. The whole series is highly susceptible to breakdown from humidity. Make sure you buy 3-year warranty.
