On article Video: Summing up our Fujifilm X-T10 Review (16 comments in total)

Poor video? What else has it got then?

You have to love this camera though. It's like watching your grandpa dance.

All good things are overpriced.

On article Fujifilm X-T10 Review (511 comments in total)

"Fujifilm is aiming it at hobbyist and a younger generation of creatives: essentially those who might not be able to afford (or don't want to spend more than $1000 on) the X-T1, but still want the same image quality it offers."

Isn't not being to afford sort of similar to not wanting to spend more?

I knew technology would soon resolve this photographic nuisance we call darkness.

I just hope they don't end up inside the eye sockets of ill meaning robots.

The whole different aesthetic advantage of a pocketable camera this good, is that you park the camera in your pocket and you relax and start SEEING.
Then you take the camera out of your pocket and take a shot.

It is a camera that is a slave to your eyes and not the other way around.

So much mean baseless diatribe aimed at Cheney, his colleagues and the Americans here.

Maybe Hasselblad was clever enough to realize that they are going to die soon, and they decided to go with a BANG !

Ousting looks like a very nice undertaker.

What the nice Swedes need to do is to fork out serious money if they need to continue. Changing direction in this market is expensive. They should've dropped the penny a while back. Sony played a part in this too, the sneaky people that they are. They were the ones holding the gun while Hasselblad pulled the trigger on that psychotic Sony concoction, aiming at their foot.

We photographers are a very unforgiving lot. This is not going to workout for them as simply as re-branding dishwashers.

Hasselblad has been a legend for a very long time, and with some luck it can get back on its wobbly feet again ( mind you re-inventing your brand is pretty tricky in this current market ).

All they have to do is stop taking advice from the guys in the fashion industry.
They are all taking coke.

In the digital medium format world you need to stay at least as sober as Pentax, and even then, you have half a chance.

The future of photography will be shaped by Sony. So the question becomes :
What's happening inside Sony R&D rooms and who are the new engineering graduates who will join them? The company's plans for the next twenty years.

They have so far pushed the bulk down and the quality up, which is the fattest revolution in photography for a while. They are selling sensors to Nikon and making cameras where people can use their Canon lenses. Medium format cameras are looking silly already.

And they have massive experience in video, as well as all the broadcast stuff they have done for decades.

On article Video Overview: Leica Q (149 comments in total)

Every great thing in this world is not so great, if the price is not right.
or said differently,
Everything can be made to be great, if price is not an issue.

I suspect that multiple manufacturers can make a camera just as good, if they wished to charge the same money.

In technology, the art is in making great thing relatively affordable.
This is primarily an item of luxury. One that happens to be a great camera.

Sony is on a roll. You know the exponential rate of change is here when technology and innovation falls off a company at a pace that does not make common market sense.
Long live the nerds and the accountants !

Tape5: So much sass and class, and still fall on their ass. I've always felt bad about those incidents, but this is like two supermodels headbutting each other on the catwalk.

But why would you wish to just click a Dislike button when you can have your Dislike liked by others?

Without learning the context, the mood, the task at hand or the need to communicate, how can anyone pass an opinion about any art form?
A rather futile exercise
Thanks for sharing

Weapon, shooting, chicks, testosterone... I get it.
Now, honey, why don't you drop that beach towel while I get my weapon ready. The only one I have.

Sony's tight market research has produced another fantastic camera for a sizable portion of the happy shooters.

In reply to:

Artistico: It's better than the performance of many a compact camera. An iPhone truly eliminates the need for a low-end compact for snapshots, and I do believe that at times, you can get a shot with an iPhone that you simply couldn't with a bigger camera, either because it's always with you, or because it's unintrusive and doesn't cause a change in your subject's behaviour before you get the picture, as particularly large cameras with big lenses do have a tendency to do at times.

It might just be my next phone. I just have to wear out, lose or accidentally break my current one first...

Right on Marty. Boring boring boring boring stuff this mobile malarkey. It's like watching a 2010 episode of X factor.
