Garug: Well, who has over 4k monitor anyway? not many, but I quess it has its spesial uses.

However the stabilisation is not great and looks heavily processed. The overall result probaly would be better with one 8k camera.

It's not an analogy, it's a direct correlation based on the same proviso re: resolution of screen and camera, that you fronted, but more to the point.

NCB: About time Fuji admitted that its X-trans sensor has had its day. Maybe this is another small step in the right direction.

@Toni:

The Leica M9 hasn’t an anti aliasing filter, from 2009, @18MP. Fuji didn’t invent. They followed and claimed truths that were nothing but marketing.

@Toni:

Lots of cameras have won gold awards at DPReview. Would you like me to roll a list of all the mirrorless cameras that have?

Log has come in various mirrorless for three years now. Fuji finally gets it this year. Yay! New features! Kaizen FTW! (Let's not mention all the cameras that have had it previously.)

I understand the desire to praise Fuji for Kaizen and their firmware efforts, but let's not pretend that the features they introduce are anything but par for the course for cameras at the price range and often below.

X-Trans increasing resolution was 100% marketing. Removing the AA filter was what did that.

How’s it a mistake for Fuji to not offer X Trans on the GFX? I’m hella happy that it’s just Bayer.

@LakeSuperior1:

Um... no. Fuji release bodies often gimped by bad or no implementation of industry-wide standard features. Then they add them in as the body gets old. Technically, they are adding features, but their bodies only get up to parity with the competition.

random78: Hmmm the model name X-T100 is highly confusing since Fuji has another camera model named X-100T.

Fuji's branding is as confused as they come. Except for the Pro model. It's for pros.

tedolf: Still no EVF option.

Why can't I buy a FUJI non- X trans camera with an EVF, or at least an option for one.

If Leica can do it, so can Fuji!

@tedolf:

Funnily enough, Leica have never done X Trans. Amazing that they were able to do that whilst putting in an EVF. Cool story.

TWHTom: Wrong name bad placement of EVF - why call it an XT when everything else XT is X-trans sensor? Why confuse it with X100T? Why not put the viewfinder on the left like X-Pro and XE models? Can you say "nose prints"?

It's the same company that unironically named its top camera X-Pro. Branding is not their thing.

Or the X100 system:

S - second
T - third
F - fouth
F - fifth?
S - sixth?
S - seventh?

A silly company with great lenses.

FoxShutter: Fuji ! Not good to try and rush to be ahead of Sony ;) It’s always better to release a brand new and well constructed camera from the beginning than trying to recover a half dead body.

@Darn:

You sir have had wonderful experience. I put the Sony through hell and found that even when shooting dancers and peoplw playing basketball it’s eye focus would snap to. It may have gone for the eyebrow, that’s possible but always, no matter the action, went for the closest possible thing. The fuji would rarely get the face and if it did, it may be accurate. But then I can also ensure that I get a face in focus with a Leica- focusing manually.

The difference between the two is beyond night and day. And I’m not a Sony fanboy. In fact the closet to a Sony camera that I own is a Fuji X-H1.

@Darn:

Fuji fans and Sony fans have different definitions of reliable. The A7III for its faults has more reliable eye AF than the X-H1 has face focus. One is puzzling, one is a complete shame. I’ll let you guess which is which.

Even when plagued with eye AF issues, sony’s Is leaps and bounds ahead of Fuji, whose not only rarely works but whose face detect gets fooled by everything from a strand of hair to a rug to a beer cooler.

This has always been what Fuji do: release products whose hardware generally works but is short features and sports an erratic interface. Interface issues clean up and new features are added, but generally they just bring the hardware up to speed with what it should originally have been able to do. That’s Fuji.

shigzeo: Tried it at CP+ 2018. Sharp and reliable.

I didn’t, no. There was nothing interesting to shoot and I didn’t have a flash handy so all I took was images of text at 1:1. Because a lot of my work is done at 1:1 used to seeing it and this lens does a great job at 1:1.

You be in charge not Google/Microsoft or anyone else
Take control of your files
That's what I do
Nothing hard in that

@bolt:

You don’t appear to understand cloud data. Right now I can seamlessly access all my synced files from any connected device I have. I can access my raw files, edited files, synced pictures and edit them and save them in real time.

It’s not about putting a disk in a safe. It’s about accessibility.

Cloud data isn’t just about the size. You are right to say that you shouldn’t trust others with data, but cloud storage and retrieval isn’t something you can do at home with your own equipment- unless you’re a freaking tech whiz.

Rod McD: Might be an excellent lens but sadly no use to me as a Fuji user unless it's offered in either in Fuji mount or a mount with an aperture ring that could be readily adapted. Neither seems likely. A rotating tripod collar would have been a nice pro touch too.

Good to see the conventional focus by extension. I've less time for IF lenses whose FL collapses at higher magnifications. The impact on working distance is bad news - my old MD 100/4 Macro focuses by extension and offers considerably more WD than either Fuji IF macro lens.

Plenty of active adapters for EF lenses on Fujifilm.
