On article Hands-on with new Fujifilm X-E3 (200 comments in total)
In reply to:

Lee Saxon: Touchscreen as a replacement for rather than supplement/alternative to, real buttons, is a deal-breaker for me. Gloves, camera designers, what about gloves!

And please, camera designers, however much taller the camera has to be to get the 1/4-20 on the optical axis is however much taller the camera *has* to be.

ISO, white balance, film simulation, and AF mode with only touch also for me is really really disappointing :( . At least iso and wb buttons please!

Big brands, also known as Canon and Nikon, killed the compact cameras market themselves.

Crap models, without raw, without EVF, with slow burst.

Instead of for examples making again a G16 with some improvements they want to sell at an high price something like this without even pasm modes?

Good luck. Of course me, and with me i think a lot of people, won't buy them!

And yes, phone image quality is now quite good at base iso if you shot raw. Already the iphone7s jpeg for me is crap.

Nice.

Would be nice to know what is the shutter speed of that camera and what film he has used.

I expected Pentacon Six, Pentax 645 - 67 or other medium format adapters... anyway i have some K&F concept adapters for Fuji X and they are really nice.

In reply to:

ggc: I have an XM1 and i consider it a really great camera.

From this review i don't understand if this XA3 is worser, or better. Does it have an antialias filter?

Also would like to better understand the buffer, the review isn't complete about it, with jpeg, raw+jpeg and jpeg.

Among the possible problems i have found with my XM1 use, and i would like to understand if they will affect also xa3:

1) bracketing is limited to +-1ev.
2) with non dedicated flash, using syncro flash shutter speed, the display turns nearly black after middle pressing the shutter (it simulates an exposure without flash). But flashes up to 200 or so volts are allowed, so even really old flashes are usable.

(to follow)

As for jpeg and AF, i'm satisfied with my XM1. And in the dark, it's enough for landscape usage with wideangles and normal lenses to put infinity and this gives me a 100% hit ratio, that even with my old fullframe reflex was a BIG dream, without a proper or calibrated distance scale with most lenses and non working af in the darkness.

Plus i find the 16-50 an excellent lens, whilst for example the sony one is a poor one.

And what sluggish operation means. Is it slower than xm1?

On article Throwback Thursday: The Canon PowerShot G3 (96 comments in total)

Thank you Dale for the nice article!

I have recently bought for not many €€ a used G5 that is moreless the same, really nice images at base iso, nice lens, orientable lcd, built in ac adapter, well, i have even used it :D .

Only troubles are the sloow AF (especially at max tele) and no live view whilst focusing, the noise (400 iso is almost unusable), only raw and no raw+jpeg, control dial requires slow turning, lens cap unhandy, but overall still a really nice cam ;) . I can still have fun with this camera.

Another too specialized camera like the D5.

Nice comparison Sony A9, Canon Eos 5 Mark IV, Nikon D5 and Pentax K1:

Nice pictures, lens doesn't impress me that much and it's also softer on the left side (pictures 17).

And sensor noise is really really high.

The only great thing google could to is to open source them.

Interesting. What about a similar user experience with a much cheaper Irix 11mm that should offer the same field of view, being also much smaller?

In reply to:

ggc: "The 80D has a larger viewfinder and no labels on its directional controller. "

I own a Canon without labels, and imho is one of the worst thing i've found on a camera!!!

Mine has white balance, self timer, flash mode and i remember what else mapped to right, up, down or left arrows. Without labels is a pain.

I really like RT and i'm happy 5.0 has been released (even if compiling from source almost every improvement was avaible in 4.2 series too).

I find it works really well, also on xtrans fuji raws. Rawpedia is worth reading, after you learn how to use the interface it's easy, featureful and comfortable.

And also it's free software so you can use it and install it everywhere.

On article DPReview Asks: What was your first camera? (766 comments in total)

Canon FT ql + 50mm 1.4 . Then a lot of others, film and digital.

Learning how to shoot with a camera like that and slides has been an invaluable experience.

Why there isn't a simple picture of a landscape focused at infinity maybe at two different apertures?

In reply to:

ggc: Looks and seems really nice.

Is bracketing really +-2 ev (finally!). How many frames? 3 or also 5 or 7?

I've read also flash sync is now 1/250s, but also my XM1 syncs fine at 1/250s with an external flash.

Thank you, a little bit better than previous models (i'm not and hdr fan but sometimes it's necessary!).

In reply to:

ludwik123: People are being very harsh in their opinions.
5 years ago. These would have been state of the art.
Small, nice zoom range and good looking.
They will still sell.

5 years ago Canon produced for example the powershot Sx 150 (and before the sx 130 that sensor a part was moreless the same) that was MUCH BETTER and equally inexpensive.

http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/canon-powershot-sx150-is/

Real iris, stabilized, faster and rather nice lens, P A S M, and also chdk runs on it. These new camera are simply ridicolous and an incredible step backward compared to good old powershots.
