vallhall: ISO 12800 its like night and day in fujis favor!. Its looks like the little GRiii have an 1 inch sensor compared to 100F

Any mushiness is Lightroom related. Other software renders sharp results. Long known issue of Lightroom.

Olifaunt: Why is the high ISO so much worse than the X100F?

Like the GR2, it falls apart above ISO 3200, and this is a much newer sensor, so what is the deal here?

Softness in detail here is because of Lightroom, not X-Trans.

Fuji doesn't cheat on iso

photomedium: What I learned: Canon is too cheap to even hide the two fasteners in front of the body.

You mean the two screws at the front of the camera? Have you looked at the ever so cheap Canon 1DX Mark 2?

tailings: It's black and it's a hole. Can't say they didn't deliver what they promised. ;)

It is captured with light, if you understand the entire frequency of light.

MightyMike: 'the image is 'not simulation or conjecture, but chaotic photons surrounding an unimaginable void.'

'...it was parsed through by a supercomputer for months on end to create the image we've been shown today.'

So which is true? Sounds like the image is simulated from lots of data points. Sounds like a lot more computational photography than we see in our cameras today. So is it a close to real representation like we'd see from a modern camera or a simulated representation where we can't be certain its how it would appear to the human eye?

Don't get me wrong, I think this is great stuff but I think the claims of it not being simulated are a little weak.

Multiple radio telescopes are used around the world to increase the baseline and improve resolution. Data from the scopes are then combined. This is nothing new, nor is it simulated. Best not to question things you don't understand and call experts explanations weak.

Benjamin Kanarek: I only have one thing to say. You must you must you must use Capture One to process Fuji film RAW files. If you are using Nikon or Sony or Canon lightroom is fine. Fujifilm needs Capture One to shine. I know because I use two systems. I've been a professional photographer for over 30 years. I know that doesn't matter but I do have eyes and very discerning clients. My last five of six professional photo shoots were shot with the Fuji film XT3. Oh, did I I mention (or you might have read elsewhere) that I shoot my Fuji film at 80 ISO? I just make sure my highlights and shadows are under control. The noise levels are substantially lower.

The demosaicing is far better in C1 than Lightroom. Well known and discussed at great length in Fuji forums everywhere; with examples

flockmock: Strange Sony artifacts?

Could someone with more experience please explain me, what kind of artifacts in the black/white parts are visible in the Sony photos?
I mean the greenish-pink stripes on the chest of the small child in the b/w photo inside the studio scene, for example.
Is it from the sensor or from the lens? Is there a way to avoid that?
Thanks a lot.

The mix brush does not get rid of luminosity moire without destroying texture. Sorry, but you are wrong; and I think you know that as well.

Magnar W: I'll take the one with best autofocus. A sharp test chart or a tad less noise doesn't help much if your real world pictures are out of focus.

Both have very good autofocus. I'm amazed at how poor some photographers must be if they think they can't get a picture without the fastest tracking on an eye. Ridiculous. And no, moire is not easy to remove. The color effect is, but the luminosity remains destroyed forever by the artifact.

Show me how you remove moire from the b&w luminosity data. Can't wait to see it.

You can't fix moire in post. You can only remove the color artifacts. The moire in the luminosity channels cannot be fixed.

ZeBebito: No surprises here. As expected, there is more detail in the Sony chart.

That is because of Lightroom. I have no mess with C1 and my XT3.

It is the Lightroom demosaicing

MamiyaMax: Looks like Fuji has another winner. Better noise. Better resolution. And, when the raws are processed in other software than these Lightroom samples, the sharpness and resolution are even better. All for a great price.

Sony has lower resolution and less aliasing

True. Heavier default sharpening on the Sony. Lots of moire rainbows and aliasing. Looking at the two compared, pretty visible the Fuji has higher resolution. And this is with Lightroom which is poor on xtrans. I use C1 on my XT3 and it offers better sharpness and resolution

Ed Ingold: "No news is good news," to the EU hegemony government.

Copyrights for photographs taken by employees of a news agency belong to the agency, not the photographer. Even so, fair use doctrine generally permits snippets of information without violating copyrights. That still holds true in the U.S, where freedom of the press is granted by God, not some act of legislature or dictate from an unelected official.

I'm still waiting for his reference to where the founding fathers cited god as the basis of the constitution. Still crickets chirping.

goactive: Dont need it can care less. Just put the focus point on the person on the place you want and take the photo how hard is that. Its worked for how many years now.

Seems his experience is backed up with many years of actual photography, running a photography business. This as opposed to a guy with no experience who is defensive Sony user.
