pjbw127: X-Pro3. I have used tilting screens since 2006.
I can't live without this feature.
(Dear Fujifilm: It doesn't have to swivel though my 2006 camera's does!)

[quote]They decided it would not benefit enough of their market[/quote] Then why include it on the X-T1 the X-T10 and the X70? Duh!

In reply to:

coldturkey66: Will older 16 MP models like my X-T10 also benefit from this improvement through a firmware update, or does this work only with the new 24 MP sensor?

Fuji has actually said that the X-PRO2 guts is 4k capable, but they felt that it was not the market segment for this camera. (What rubbish!). So 1080p should be a walk in the park.

beetle0042000: Even a 5 yr old iphone shoots better video than the 1700$$ fuji

What kind of a dumb statement is this? Compare the size of a phone sensor, it's low light capability and lack of interchangeable lens, and then think again!

Unthinking glib throw away lines only show a lack of understanding

On article Accessory Review: Drobo Mini RAID (149 comments in total)

Just for the record, I use a LaCie ThunderBolt BigDisk enclosure with 2x 4TB 3.5" spinning HDDs in RAID 0 for my video. Black Magic reports over 750MB/sec transfer speed.

As this is RAID 0, I back it up to a RAID 5 ReadyNAS PRO, but it's good to know what else you can consider.

On photo DSC_8514 in dpreview review samples's photo gallery (2 comments in total)

Fascinated by these images. Very informative. To me, it doesn't seem to deliver the details that I was expecting. E.g. the rider's hair in this shot.

Makes me question whether the D810 would be good for my needs.

Thanks for sharing!

On article Nikon AF-S Nikkor 58mm f/1.4G review (416 comments in total)

Will be very interesting to compare this to the new up-coming Sigma 50/1.4

Meanwhile in my world, I'll stick to my "old" 85mm 1.4 Nikkor for portraits and 50mm 1.8 Nikkor for low light, but that's just me.

In reply to:

AbrasiveReducer: Like (almost) all Fuji lenses it's obviously excellent. But if I was that excited about a 35mm lens to spend this much, I'd just get the X100. I don't dispute that 35mm is a great general purpose focal length but for portraits and out of focus backgrounds? To each his own.

That's exactly how I feel. Plus have you compared the SIZE of this lens on a body versus the X100s? It's huge.

However I commend Fuji for the outstanding quality that they keep delivering. I think Leica has some stiff competition :).

Michael Ma: Don't cut yourself short by losing the ability to fully process raw on a tablet. Use a powerful laptop instead. You can the latest and greatest i7, 8GB ram, SSD, for less than price of an iPad if you buy a Toshiba, Asus, Samsung. An Apple is going to cost you 3x more, but you'll have a nice looking case.

LOL, plus the Apple will actually WORK and continue working. By the way I support Windows as a job :)

My MacBook Air with 500GB PCIe SSD and access speed of 700MB/sec and i7 processor and 8GB of 1600MHz ram is no slouch. Just sayin'

DVT80111: OK, what are must have apps for Android?

I could find PS Touch in the Google Play Store. Is there where it should be?

I must look for an Android (friendly) thread. I use multiple devices, iPad, Galaxy Note, MacBook Air & Pro - and find them ALL useful.

In reply to:

rrr_hhh: I need an app to make some portfolios : what are you using ? Portfolio or Foliobook ? Anyone having both can compare ? For iPad apps, the price is a little too high to get both and choose later and the DPreview comments are a little too succinct to decide knowingly.

Thanks in advance for commenting

I actually went for Xtrafolio. :)
