rdscibilia: Sounds like a feature Snapseed has had for a while. Quite useful really.

No. Snapseed use data from the image being edited to guess the result. Auto Frame take the info from a secondary wa picture, it won't guess.

celipessoa1971: Regardless of price, the Leica CL with its 28mm and comparable sensor is much better.

The Leica will be left home in the drawer, while the GR is out taking pictures.
The Porsche will get out a few times a year, while the Ford will be the daily work horse.

chriswilliams10: Why does it look like every out of camera jpeg's look under exposed? Is that the camera or the camera person??

It's always the user. You get great images when you know your camera. If you don't know what the buttons are doing you are better off with a mobile.

marcio_napoli: Fake bokeh is disgusting. Downright disgusting.

But even if (and that's a massive if) it was absolutely perfect, so perfect you couldn't tell it from the real thing, my honest opinion is this:

Check in the mirror if there's an actual photographer there, if you don't care for your photography enough to carry real lenses, bending real light.

If your standards as a photographer are so low that you can't be bothered with real glass, and you gladly accept small sensor + fake bokeh, then go check it out if you're actually a photographer.

Before you call me some luddite, besides being a fashion pro, I'm also doing VFX since my teen days.

I love fake imagery, I do it a lot, but I do it where it matters or is actually needed.

In my photography, I prefer real light bending.

Fake bokeh is one more reason why photography, as a craft, is becoming a joke with each passing year.

I didn't expect a pro photographer to understand what I was writing. It wasn't about pro photography.

I would rather see an interesting picture taken by a happy amateur with a smartphone, than a boring picture taken with real glass by a hard working Photographer.

FujLiver: The false bokeh looks awful compared to the real one.
But it’s a fun effect for a phone.
Not sure why use the Nikon 58, it’s not exactly a sharp lens. Better to use a Leica, Sony or Sigma 50mm to see a sharper transition

Why full frame? Why a superlens? Just use any cheap compact zoom camera to demonstrate the weakness of fake bokeh.

Raist3d: a few thoughts

To the people saying this camera should be $400 usd tops you have no idea what you are saying. This camera isnt for you- good lenses and good bulld costs money and thia line has had a good lens.

@dpreview- the fuji competitor is the xf10, not the one you said.

usability- wait until ricoh shows the final prosuct. for all we know the interface ia now better.

flash - ill admit i dont use flash but would still have preferred if they kept it. if they incliude a small tilting flash that can close nice along the top so its still easy to pocket that wpuld be nice.

i appreciate the camera seems smaller

With 5 months to release they should have time to fix it properly. If not, there will be something new to learn. Even this regression looks better than the competition, except the price.

stevo23: Painy by numbers for photographers. Might as well build in GPS and verbal directions while they’re at it. “Turn right. Now up this hill and aim south at 1920 hours in June. Set camera for f/8, vivid film silulation. Shoot...now.”

I expect Fuji to build a drone with this. It will fly to the next close scene and do the job. Why should you bother go there? Just set your name in exif and charge the battery. Pictures are posted on insta, fb, twitter, 500 etc. while the thing move to next scenic spot and you search app store for an app that teach you how to paint exactly like Monet.

CROWD is the key word.

John Bean (UK): Unnecessary ad hominem attacks on the photographer or for that matter on his work; *you* might not like the pictures, others (like me) will find them interesting.

That said I'm getting tired of all the "all you need is a NEW iPhone" ads posing as articles* these days on DPR.

* paid or unpaid they're still ads for Apple.

I like to think that this is a NEWS site. Where is the NEW story ?

dlb41: Honestly can't tell the difference.

Have you considered that this is the whole point with that picture. Film was shot downwards to -show- the surroundings. Digital was shot up towards the sky to -hide- the background.
