BrianOC: Great camera... but waaaay to expensive

Half the price of a Mk iv is expensive?

Denton Taylor: Yeah this is rather annoying. A lot of people are claiming that the XT-2 is a 'pro' camera since they upgraded the autofocus etc. Fuji doesn't discourage this talk. Then they charge $80 for the simple ability to shoot tethered? I think I'll just stick to my Canons for that. Free, and works.

One criterion is the ability to hook it up too studio lighting and shoot into a computer.

On article DPReview Asks: What was your first camera? (764 comments in total)

A Diana when I was ten. Cost $3.50 in the local drug store. That would have been 1965 or so.

Denton Taylor: As a 600-EX-RT user, this is great news. I'm surprised Yongnuo didn't do this first tho.

Ellis, strange. I have been using the Yongnuo triggers with Canon speedlites with zero problems every since the triggers came out. I finally sold the Canon trigger since the Yongnuo is actually better what with the AF assist. I've added/replaced a couple of Canon -EX-RT's with the Yongnuo equivalent flashes and no problems. Except the usual, you can't store them with batteries cuz they drain them.

Anyone know if it will be available body only? I have a big Fuji system and don't need this kit lens.

What a bummer. I was hoping for a FF lens. I have most of the other ART lenses for FF and love them

Nevertheless, Sony's ADRs are down 2.5% today. I guess Wall Street was expecting better.

Nothing like reading this on Independence Day. Thanks goodness Britain at least has not lost its mind.

Looks like the XPro 2 will be a helluva camera... 24mpx and AF that works. I will buy one.

On article Phottix Mitros Flash for Canon Review (41 comments in total)

I don't get this. The 580EXii, to which this is compared, is a discontinued item. So you really have to compare it to the 600EX-RT. The 600EX-RT is currently selling for $550 USD, and has sold in the past for $500. So why would you even consider buying this thing with a radio control and all its failings for $400? If you insist on buying cheap sh*t, may as well buy the Yongnuo YN-E3-R controller for $130 and either buy Canon 600EX, or wait for the Yongnuo equivalents which should be out soon.

The lack of an external charger is annoying but if you can afford $750 for a camera you can afford to go to ebay and get a charger and a few spare batteries for next to nothing. That's what i did with my RX100.

Whatever happened to pbase? It's what I'm mostly using but wonder why no one even mentions it anymore.

I was going to post something but the character limit here is so low you can't make an argument for anything.

"There are a lot of wannabe fashion and beauty photographers"

I stopped reading there. Why insult people that comprise a large part of your audience?
