Sactojim: Sorry, Kodak 360 beat everyone to the punch. So this new startup company is trolling for money for a product that is already entrenched? Sounds like a good way to lose money.

Do u recommend kodak over the pricier ricoh?

On article Fujifilm X-Pro2 versus X-T2: Seven key differences (336 comments in total)
In reply to:

SkyTamer: Thank you Barney and DPReview team for this article.
I am a current Sony a6000 shooter and have admired the colors rendered by the Fuji system and the form factor of the X-Pro2. I was ready to place my order when the X-T2 was announced. Bypassing 4K and the other "minor" conveniences makes me wonder if I could come to love the X-T2 for street and prime lens use over the X-Pro2. Would you have any insight or are in the same dilemma that can further ease my mind into a decision would be greatly appreciated.

oh how I wish that my camera has tilt flip screen. At times I want to shoot something from the ground pointing up, what can I do ? tilting screen to the rescue

tkbslc: It's getting really hard to want to spend $700 on a Galaxy or iPhone when options like this are becoming common.

With so many good choices now, I never spend more than $250.

goactive: So i have been playing with Exposure X and the more i play with it i can match the color and look i get in lightroom after you learn how the tools work. For sharpening it has two different sharpening tool areas if you use then i am not seeing any less sharp images then what i get in Lightroom.
I would like to see more color control like in lightroom i use the extra color tools a lot in Lightroom

I love the Bokeh tool that is almost worth the price of the program just for that. all the presets, borders and light effects and the Vignette tool.

Also it dose not support the new Nikon D500 i am shooting with now.

Also playing with DxO and like it a lot but it lacks any other editing tools it would be great if DxO would work with Exposure is that possible as the two of them together

Over all i would buy Exposure X if they have a way to add my logo png to my images on export center bottom And have D500 camera support

i can't find info anywhere as to whether it will correct lens distortion, etc.. etc..
their website only lists supported cameras

zzzxtreme: it's nice to see bickering and arguments over fuji vs canikon vs sonys. I hope this fight continues for a long time. We need all the options. i do hope samsung makes a comeback. they make excellent cameras.

Nikon already has the tech for mirrorless right? Just lousy marketing, pricing and wrong timing. People wouldn't want to buy a mirrorless Nikon 1 that costs more than a D3300. Consumers think bigger is better

In reply to:

mxx: "make this camera suitable for a relatively small portion of buyers in the full-frame DSLR market" = Better buy something else than this mediocre camera.

Thanks DPR, for sh***ing on Pentax again.

my benchmark for AF prowess (for cheap cameras) is my old Nikon V1. so I keep my V1 for sports/street,and other camera for low light conditions.

I'm still interested in this pentax despite knowing the lacking AF. the price is unbelievable good. Fantastic DR and image quality without competition at that price

In reply to:

Autriche78: Looks like a great camera from everything that's being said. However, I'm hoping that there will be a less expensive X-T10 follow-up with the new 24 MP sensor that doesn't include 4k video and weather sealing, both of which are relatively useless to me and just raise the price to where I - a passionate hobbyist - find it hard to justify a purchase. I do stills only and have had many film and digital DSLR's , starting with Cosina back in the 80’s, that I've taken to all sorts of dusty and moist climates without ever damaging one. My X-T10 and X-E1 - and the X-M1 and X-A1 which I gave to my teenagers - are all still happily working without any weathersealing whatsoever, and they haven't been babied.

I get that there are people who need these features, and who can afford them. But some of us don't have endless bushels of cash lying around to spend. For me, the only must-have feature in this camera is the higher resolution sensor, and the AF joystick, and at $1600 these become don't-need-at-this-premium.

I wish that there were manufacturers who offered the same products with different option and price levels, as is the case with cars, where you can buy an ergonomically exactly identical car but chose what additional options you're willing to pay for. I can't possibly be the only one who doesn't have a need for weathersealing or 4k video.

I for one would like B&W sensor option

Greg7579: Why in the world are you describing the Fuji lens lineup as niche and attractive to a small dedicated following? Fuji lenses are the best in the world and that was the only part of your very good review that I took issue with. So that means you did a good job. I just pre-ordered the XT-2 on BH, along with the large handgrip.

I own nikons and a samsung, i must say canon makes best lenses in the world

garyknrd: I would be careful with the AF claiming to be much better. I used the new pro2 a few weeks ago with the 100-400 and it was a dog to put it mildly. Compared to a DSLR.
I am desperately wanting to go mirror less but the AF has to be up to snuff. I am hoping DPR will put out a detailed AF review.

fast AF claim is correct, only when the camera manage to detect a focus point. that's the fine print

ms18: I still think fuji is a camera for those shooting people with Jpg. I think for those who shoot landscape..etc in RAW Sony is a better choice.

same sensor, but different sensor filter and processing right?

Karroly: "The NP-W126S is still rated as offering the same capacity, so the precise difference is unclear"
Maybe the final S is for Speed and this new version recharges faster ?

less heat, apparently

In reply to:

AndroC: I have noticed that DPR appears to have almost no digital photography news to report on as late, and have resorted to general film photography articles and are now promoting clickbait (does DPR get revenue from this?) with juvenile and destructive content. How this website has deteriorated. Anybody who finds crushing beautifully crafted cameras funny or entertaining needs to revise their sense of humour. But I suppose a million followers all have this childish, immature and destructive outlook. Sad and melancholy times we live in today.

There's not much digital photography news that can be reported though. Pretty slow
