If you don't want to buy new gear, great.

I will add this:

If you do want to buy new gear, great.

Ok, sorry for being harsh. I just think you sounded disrespectful on your first comment. Its a great free site. Take care

Would you mind showing us something you wrote, then?

I'll shorten Titanic, then: the ship sank. How can people be so stupid to waste time and money watching it?

Franz Weber: The problem with this clip is it is severely underexposed. They should have engaged somebody with knowledge about exposure and imaging.
Maybe the new sensor is faulty?
But apart frim that... well done.

@Simon97 It's called sarcasm and I'm sure it was intended. :)

I guess he did not anticipate that.

On article Sony 'striping': here's the fix (737 comments in total)
In reply to:

Jay A: For the life of me, I don't see any striping in either the original nor in the fixed shot of the model's face above. They both look exactly the same and when I click back and forth between the two, nothing changes.
What am I missing?

It took me a while to notice it and, honestly, it does not bother me at all. P.S.: I'm not a Sony fanboy and never shot with a Sony camera since my late point and shoot (T5, if I'm not mistaken). Cheers, Daniel

Timmbits: TLDNR
Just let me know when this makes it into actual products.
Is Panasonic just releasing R&D info so you guys can write irrelevant articles and give them free publicity/visibility?

"At some point, being able to say more in less space, does factor into journalistic talent."
You too seem to need a lot of words and two separate comments to let other people know you don't like an article... :)

FeDost: That's mean that the X-T2 price will drop off?

My thoughts exactly.

princecody: If Fuji & Panasonic tech merged together it would form the Ultimate Camera :)

@entoman Nice shooting! Cheers!
@shigzeo Hopefully I'll someday have the pleasure of shooting with a Leica! I'm not sure I'll be able to get anything in focus, but I do look forward to trying one!

@shigzeo @entoman I wouldn't say I can get things faster on the Fujis (nor that it slows me down), but I find it much more pleasing to fiddle with all those knobs and dials. Also, I never actually messed with the P mode, and find that Manual is far easier on the Fuji system. In the end, it's not about being better or worse; I just find it more satisfying, for some obscure reason.

@shigzeo I have no issues whatsoever with the rings on the Fujis and, to be honest, like it much better than the PASM system of my Canon cameras. To each their own, I guess.

Imager of: 15fps 4k video recoding fpr 5 minutes. Wow, that’s stunning! 🤔

@pyla No fanboy here, sorry. I own Fuji, Canon and Sony, and a few film cameras as well. I suggest you read what Fujifilm claims, not what the dpreview staff wrote (have you really read it through?). I understand that the good dpreview folks got it wrong. Fujifilm states that 4K burst mode captures images at 15 fps so that moments won't be missed, and that video is recorded in full HD. I have no problem understanding that. No bait, no switch. People just like to find a dark side in everything nowadays, I believe. Anyway, have fun with whatever camera you own.

In reply to:

CaptainNoddy: While people teasing Fuji made 4K 15p video for its LOWEST-end camera, the Canon 6DII, 80D & M series cameras are still doing 1080p and they are generally accepted by the customers :)

TBH, GREAT ENTRY CAMERA INDEED. Well Done, Fuji!

@pyla @tkbslc I understand they call it 4K 15 fps burst, not video. But you can also read it over and over and find more stuff to complain about. Anyway, you're free to share your biased opinion and buy something else; I'm sure you'll find something new to complain about in anything, and delight people with how critical and intelligent you can be. No one cares, to be honest. And do complain if it makes you feel better; some people seem to need it. Cheers

Do read again. It says 4K 15 fps burst. Anyway, complainers will always complain. Cheers.

BeaverTerror: No surprises here. Macs have always been the Leicas of computers. A reasonable product with a number of perks and an equal number of shortcomings, marketed at exorbitant prices for people willing to part with money in exchange for intellectual masturbation.

Maybe intellectual is not the word. Style?

@TheClueless Well, I have a much more humble kit (xE-2, kit lens, 23/1.4 and 56/1.2), and I'm far happier with my pics than I was with my previous, and much heavier, Canon kit. To each their own, I guess, but it still sounds very unfair to me calling Fuji (great lenses, kaizen philosophy) some overpriced, fanboy-loved brand. Whatever floats your boat, man. Have fun.

@TheClueless A bold (and rather off topic) statement... How many Fujifilm products do you own?

jim seekers: Why they reduce the Ram from 6GB to 4GB, Sounds like a backwards step, would like to have seen 12GB Ram.

4GB is enough for me. Right now I'm typing on Chrome (dpreview is the 22nd open tab) and Whatsapp, Instagram and LR are running as well on my S8. Smooth as can be.

BJL: I can see one reason for this variable aperture: for adequate DOF in extreme close-ups ("macro"). f/1.5 on a 1/2.55" sensor [as in the S8] has DOF like f/10 in 36x24mm format, which is usually plenty, but not always enough for some macro shots. And phone-cameras can be rather good at those.

A few other possibilities have already been mentioned, like wanting a lower shutter speed in some bright light scenarios. (Is there a flash sync speed limit with phone-cameras?)

@noisephotographer Understood, but... Correct me if I'm wrong, but wouldn't a same hypothetical scene be captured with the same ISO, aperture and shutter speed in both cameras, irrespective of sensor size?

@noisephotographer From my understanding on the subject, it's f/9 or f/10 in terms of DoF, but still f/1.5 or whatever in terms of exposure, so there are benefits anyway. I may be wrong, though.

I think ovlov was joking.
