From the point of view of this wildlife shooter, it looks like a winner!

TwoMetreBill: But when are they going to fix what's broken?
Manual aperture & shutter speed with auto ISO.
Choose exposure bracketing and any rational person would think that the camera would vary the ISO. Nope, it varies the shutter speed.
The Exposure Compensation wheel is ignored. I chose the X-T3 over the X-H1 for this wheel.
I guess it's all about their attitude toward their customers that they know best and we are just a bunch of ignorant children.

@TwoMeterBill, I wish for a down vote button in these comments. RTM.

Good idea but bad company, no thanks Adobe.

Lee Jay: I was just in the market for a new smartphone and was specifically interested in the first one I would own that would be capable of replacing my pocket compact, which I had carried for over a decade. I didn't buy a Pixel 4, because the camera wasn't very good. Specifically, it had poor telephoto performance, very poor macro performance, and no ultra-wide-angle camera.

I ended up with a Galaxy S20, and retired my pocket compact.

My pocket cam with 1" sensor is Sony RX-100, the original of the series, size of a deck of cards and prints well at 16x20.
Have to admit though that most of my shots of that type these days are with my Pixel 3a, hellofva camera for $300.

BlueJakester: Wow, tuff crowd here. So the author loves his X100V and explains why. Maybe others can relate, maybe not. Maybe you like the photos, maybe not. I enjoyed reading the article and like the photos.

"Shields up!"


Well said! Too much bitchiness on display in these comments.

I wonder if something got scrambled in the translation?

William Loney: The headline says it all.
I don't shoot video, so I won't be upgrading. My X-T3 is still a very, very good camera.

@random78, please don't confuse William, he has made up his mind and the subject is closed.

Nice video. I'm not interested in gimbal shooting of video and as a casual video guy i would like to more examples with a bit more action and movement on the part of the photographer. Any links appreciated although I'm probably a bit premature since the camera has not shipped yet.

As usual, the idiots have spoiled an activity for the normal participants. The FAA has my support to do whatever is required to insure safety and if the drone industry whines it's just too bad.

tonyreidsma: I appreciate the effort to get people to pony up and pay for an account, I really do appreciate it....... however, I do not feel sorry for them because with their purchase of FLICKR they bought an entire database of names.

So...They are like Facebook and follow you around the web and sell your data?


Get real.

girlperson1: I don’t have a Flickr account and learned my lesson years ago about posting all my stuff on the net. Get ready to download all your photos if they go belly up.

Storage is sooo cheap! Get a remote hard drive and keep your copies safe in your possession regardless of where they are online. :-)

(unknown member): I use Flickr and compared to 500px i find it pretty awful, the engagement from other photographers is next to zero, other people i follow with lots of likes have a tonne of bot comments on their shots (which leads me to believe they have paid for those likes). I recently joined a group dedicated to a certain lens, i submitted 2 photos and both were rejected with no reason given. i think the most 'likes' ive ever had on a shot is 9, and that was one i entered into the photo of the year contest, the same shot has about 150 on 500px, so either people on Flickr are more critical or the image is just not getting the right exposure.

You are an experienced and talented photographer and I enjoyed browsing your photos.

If you want to engage with the other photographers then I suggest you join some of the many special interest groups. For example landscape groups, join, post, like and comment and you are on the way. Some members post a photo to 50-100 groups, my opinion, this is excessive. I like to hold it down to 25 max.

Maoby: flickr is an extraordinary platform for sharing and organizing your photographs.
I have participated since 2011 and I have found nothing better.
I currently have over 19,000 photos on my flickr account, and I can find any photo there very easily.
To see an example of organization :
long life to flickr!

That's an interesting way of organizing your albums. I have mine organized by subject, check it out:

I agree, long life to Flickr!

Discovery Of Light: When I was a just getting started in the early 2000’s I used flickr as a learning and inspirational tool. If I was ever in a inspirational slump I would pull up some flickr to get the creative juices going again. Paying them $41.15 for a year with the discount is a small price to pay for the privilege of being able to do that.

Absolutely agree! Wonderful platform to display your work and get feedback from like minded people.
