Where is the product link ?

Great initiative, but would be great if they kept going back in models. I have a perfectly good Fuji XE1 sitting in the cupboard not used in two years, that would be perfect. I suspect many people will use older redundant cameras for just this purpose

Paul JM: You want to shoot high res 6k+ with flat profile in raw, with no time limits and no overheating issues, and to use Canon lenses ?

If you use the metabones 0.58 x adaptor the crop is only 1.2 x and you overcome all of the limitations that canon are already reporting assuming you are using Ff lenses
And if you want to go really wide and a simple set up Laoma make a 7.5 mm MFT rectilinear lens for $500 anyway so why cripple your set up with a camera that self immolates after 30 minutes

KLO82: In short, 8k and 4k 120p are special purpose modes for using sparingly.

a camera at this price is already a 'special purpose' device. For those who have a special purpose and the dough to buy it, they probably don't wish to use it sparingly, so that argument is piffle

Vik2012: This article should really be titled something like "Best online printing services for North America".

AdoramaPix/Printique, though very good, stopped shipping to Europe years ago. I remember having to haggle with them to get an important order delivered when they made their delivery policy change. In fairness, they "uncancelled" my order.

The only thing I got from them afterwards were spam emails for products I could not receive.

I was hoping that the fancy (ironically European sounding) new name would have been accompanied by a meaningful change to their shipping policy, but no.

The absence of any reference to the world outside the US is just breathtaking. Despite the very substantial audience outside North America, the DPR authors seem to assume that all readers live in the US

24Peter: Nice wish list. I'm not sure how practical or relevant these features would be for most Fuji users. I only skimmed the article, but I didn't see anything about computational photo/video capabilities. ALL the current camera companies need to include this in the new cameras - or else. I've been doing professional photo & video work for 15 years. And if I can't quickly and easily produce video that's leaps and bounds above what my clients iPhone can do, I'm out of business.

March hare, BS I say. I have seen your other posts, you are an iPhone video apologist from way back. There are other forums for you to display your obvious talent

vegetaleb: DP why on earth do you want ANOTHER fuji video camera?
I left Fuji because they twisted the X-T line from photography to video specialty cam.
They should focus instead in making a true evolution in terms of PHOTOGRAPHY!

Then buy an xpro 3

Jorginho: Could have, should have, would have. The FF Panasonics have better IQ easily and better IBIS and are not standing still. IQ of the mFT cams is moreless on par with Fuji, but are clearly ahead of IBIS.
You could hae written this about the Olympus EM1.3 inthe past: best IBIS ever, so if they just add waveforms etcetc they could have, would have etc....

The MFT stills at anything other than base iso look like finger painting compared with Fuji APSc

Mal69: Here is a feature that would be nice if shooting video.

Enable shooting full Rec 2020 just like Sony does with its latest pro cinema cameras, yes I know that is a stretch it’s a very wide colour gamut, would be great for still photography too, okay if that is too much then DCI P3 at least.

I really want to see still photography go past SRGB and embrace much wider colour gamut’s, the technology in the monitors is slowly moving on and some high end ones already do Rec 2020 while some laser projectors can also reach Rec 2020, future proofing the camera tech by providing SRGB and DCI P3 and Rec 2020 colour profiles would be great but would also require ( in my opinion ) a calibration mode as many cameras over saturate colours, this can look fine but is not accurate.

Yeah, but Mal Adobe RGB is a hell of a lot wider than sRGB and, your words, 'I really want to see still photography go past SRGB'. It went past that years ago

SRGB ? What are you talking about ? Fuji cameras including the XH1 have been using adobe RGB for years

gokhankaya: I'm planning to buy this camera. I need your help. If you have an xf10 can you answer the following:

Is it possible to power an xf10 with a powerbank? I don't need charging while the camera is ON.

Can you confirm whether the xf10 can be powered with a powerbank or not?

Thank You.

You can charge it with an external battery. No problem. Not sure why you can't if you are having trouble. I do it all the time. Just plug it in via the micro USB port and charge away

nathantw: The product looks good, but what's with people using wide angle lenses for portraits? It doesn't do the model any justice whatsoever. I can understand if it's an environmental portrait where you need the background, but for a straight up headshot you might as well use a cellphone selfie camera. If you're going to take the time to shoot, do it right and use the right lens for the task.

Any fool can shoot portrait with a medium Tele lens
The most interesting and engaging portraits by far are shot wide angle
Open your mind
