Anyone remember the OVF on the Canon SD700 IS? I tried looking through it once and never used it again. It was basically a pinhole. Anyways, I prefer EVF after using the one on the X-T1. On my X100s I switch between the two. When I want to do some real abstract photography, I use the Force.

krassphoto: A silly question. Could it be that xt2's screen is touch-able? And now, after release of xt20 with touchscreen, xt2 will get a huuuge firmware upgrade, enabling touch screen feature? That would be great and very "Fuji-ish" :)

Why would they disable a physical feature only to enable it later? Makes no sense.

A touchscreen! Why oh why does this have a touchscreen and not the X-T2? Do we have to wait 3-4 years to get a touchscreen on the X-T3? Maybe they can come out with a X-T2s with a touchscreen in the meantime...

great Javier: What can you do with MF that you can't do with FF?

With a MF camera, I can call a 35mm camera a crop camera...

FantasticMrFox: And it's getting more and more DSLR like with every iteration - seems like it has slowly dawned on DSLM manufacturers that people actually want to be able to hold a camera without getting cramps in their hands, and that requires a certain size and decent ergonomics.

So what was the point of mirrorless again?!

Small lenses...

On article Lenovo Yoga Book features unique 'on-demand' keyboard (89 comments in total)

Size and price is the seller here. If I can get rid of my notebook and tablet and use this thing to transfer my photos from SD card to an external hard drive, I'm going to get one. Currently I have a notebook and a 8" android tablet for travel. I've been considering a Microsoft Surface, but the price is too high. Sure it's only 10 inches. But that means it's easy to pack into a messenger bag or backpack. I only hope it has an integrated GPS.

Perfect for people with aging parents who are not tech savvy. Too bad it's not available in North America.

The specs say the LCD screen 104,000 dots...quite the massive downgrade!

A better patent would be to allow companies to put cellular phones into silent mode automatically. Like in a movie theater or at a restaurant.

That lens seems really soft. Did DPR try a second X70 to see if better results can be had?

In reply to:

rallyfan: What nonsense. WHO is "everyman?" This thing is expensive and is NOT made in the USA. Why are we discussing this? Aren't there bags made domestically that one can use instead? (Hint: yes... Even this site's owners sell some domestically-made bags that are decent options. I don't recommend anyone shop there, but if you must, you can in fact buy a US-made bag even there).

You better change profeesions/hobbies since no digital cameras are made in the USA.

The specs say a fully articulated LCD. It should be tilting...

In reply to:

Mateus1: No, it's not GX-7 successor which was the best Panasonic mirrorless with a few isuues. GX-8 size and handling is dissapointing and GX-80 is poorer. After GX-7 Panasonic really dissaponts me with new releases :(

Amazing how you have handled a GX-80 before it's available. You must be the source of all these leaks about the GX-80.

In reply to:

justmeMN: $1,699 for body-only. Mirrorless enthusiasts say that mirrorless cameras cost less to manufacture than DSLRs, but that doesn't seem to be reflected in their prices.

Yes...because Fujifilm only sells one camera body...<rolleyes>

So does the IBIS only work in live view mode? I can't see how it would work if the mirror is down.
