In reply to:

krassphoto: A silly question. Could it be that xt2's screen is touch-able? And now, after release of xt20 with touchscreen, xt2 will get a huuuge firmware upgrade, enabling touch screen feature? That would be great and very "Fuji-ish" :)

To push sales of the future model. Canon did it with their first Digital rebel. It had features disabled that were enabled on a higher end model. It was unlocked with "Vasya's hack" later. Sometimes it is cheaper for the manufacturer to install the same hardware and disable some functions for lower end models rather than manufacture separate hardware for different models.
But again, I'm not saying it is the case here. Just my silly assumption. Wishful thinking, if you will.

Thanks, Max Iso. This was exactly what I meant. That's why I said "silly question". But, this has been done before as a "marketing strategy".

I'm wondering if the release of xt20 has anything to do with the xt2 being backordered everywhere.

BenMcK: Fuji are doing a great job - making very attractive (looks and performance) cameras at both "flagship" and "understudy" level.
I'd love to see the XE line updated in a similar manner some time in the next 12 - 18 months. I'm very happy with my X-E2 and would rather stick with a rangefinder style design when I upgrade.

Same here. Love my xe2. Now let's hope Fuji will come up with x-t20 in a rangefinder-style body, like they did with x-t10 and x-e2.

Great review. Thanks, DPR! Now I'll stick with my excellent fz1000 and feel good! :)

For me as a consumer it means something, but not much. Hope your curiosity is satisfied.

No, getting a lot of patents doesn't make a company go out of business. My point was that getting a lot of patents doesn't mean that the company makes better product. It benefits the company, not me as a consumer. For a consumer it's irrelevant how many patents the manufacturer holds, or whether it uses somebody else's patents. Consumer wants better product for less money.

HP1999: President Dumpf supporter of evil is not my president. Look at everything O.H. said and did

The speech by actress Meryl Streep was on point.
The last republican president got us in a war with no WMDs to be found. Was part of a massive recession.

Dumpf will isolate and take the US into WW III with his idiotic tweets and lack of diplomacy
Trump will do nothing unless it puts more money in his pockets. Dumpf supporters were blinded by lies so he could win the biggest reality show ever
We have a president with the behavior of a toddler who is spoiled and when they don't get there way it was rigged.
Still Dumpf won't show his tax returns for someone who likes to brag and boast all of a sudden he is shy to be a billionaire (supposedly)

3 million Americans did not want Dumpf and while he won the electoral vote he lost in his home state of New York. His home town did not want this leech
Dark days ahead for all

...and with all his enormous IQ, Obama thinks that US has 57 states and that in Austria they speak Austrian. And Michelle thinks that it is perfectly fine to tap The Queen on a shoulder. And it is still a mistery who paid for Obama's Columbia and Harvard..

krassphoto: Oh, the "legacy" of 8 years of marxist/sicialist/liberal brainwashing! Dividing everything that could be divided. DPR wasn't an exception. Why in the world did you do that, DPR??!

Obama's vision for our country was formed by Frank Marshall Davis, Bill Ayers, Jeremiah Wright and Saul Alinsky. And by "dreams from his father". But anyway, any further arguing is pointless here, because, as someone said "it is very hard to argue about the taste of oysters with someone who has never tried them".

Two things .
1) Based on your statement, you have no clue what you're trying to talk about, but acting like you do. In particular, you obviously have no idea that in marxist/socialist system "understanding the ideological roots and policies behind a given type of government" was a large, if not the main part of education.
2) I haven't had any intention of making fool out of anyone, especially you, because you, as a typical "progressive" well-spoken demagogue, doing it yourself just fine.

LOL! Of course I have no understanding about marxism. The only thing that I grew up and lived under marxist regime for almost 30 yeas. But what do I know compare to you and your "reliable sources"? And yes, Obama IS a marxist. Look who his mentors were and what type of people he surrounded himself with when his views were formed. Read his books. His slogan "Spread the wealth around!" alone puts hammer and sickle on his forehead. Now go ahead, professor, attack my spelling! Love when liberals make fools out themselves!

Funny that if I intentionally misspell Obama's name, I will be automatically labeled as a racist and bigot by the libs. And, btw, NY, and ecpecially NYC don't represent the entire USA. Just look at the commie mayor they elected.

Yes, what a horrible "spelling error", which was really an obvious typo, I've made! You sure can judge about the entire education system by that! And how can you question my knowledge about marxism/socialism? I'm sure you know cr@p about it, according to your comment.

Andy C Knight: The Video at the time was rather nice.. True 16:9 (i.e. not a 4:3 crop) HD, Quiet Autofocus, Step less Aperture, Full Manual Control.

But indeed the video quality was lacking as far as the bit rate was concerned, with lack of detail on fast action and 'mud' in the shadows.

Well it was... until the GH13 Firmware Hack appeared.

Well done Vitaliy Kiselev (and all the Beta testers), you really made this camera so popular in the video circles.

Yes! Vitaly Kiselev is the man! I believe he went by "tester1" name at very earliest stage of hacking. And, if I remember correctry, the GH13 hack even caused the delay of the GH2 because Panasonic had to do some major adgustment to the GH1 successor's firmware.
I, myself took part in first testings, and then I stopped out of fear of bricking my beloved GH! :)))
