On article Throwback Thursday: Fujifilm X100 (131 comments in total)

I still own my X100, I don't use it much but it's still a fun and very capable camera. Very slow (especially AF) to today's standards but anyway it has a couple of (almost) unique features that I like, like the viewfinder and the very high x-sync.

ark747: One rainy day, make a list of all necessary equipment, print it and laminate in plastic.
Put this card in your photo backpack. Ready! You can spend saved money on something more useful

You don't need the same equipment for different jobs

I would have loved to have such a thing when I was a professional photographer! I lost or forgot so much gear...
Great idea anyway!

Tariag: Fuji Finepix 1300 in 2001

I thought it was first digital... First camera was an Olympus [mju:]-1 around 1993

Tariag: Impressive results considering the price of the camera and lenses.
I just have to say that I don't like at all the cat-eye shaped bokeh, but it's my own taste.
Which sensor is it? Panasonic or Sony?

My bad, read it to quicky. Apologies.

So so so... Now what we all want to know here, is what cameras were used for these shots?
How many FF, APS-C, MFT?
How many Canon, Nikon, Sony?
Because the forums guys NEED it to start a lot of new arguments about which brand and which sensor size is the best!
If possible, 100% crops for pixel-peeping would be appreciated.
Thank you.

elefteriadis alexandros: The sample is really good, of course with same purple fringing in the corners but not so much for such a ultra wide lens.

Corners? Where do you see corners?

That's the worst idea ever...
Bat rubber, and especially the one with the pips (designed to offer maximum control on the ball) is very fragile and it wears quickly. Those who use it change very often. That's the opposite of the durable philosophy of Leica.
I just don't understand this choice.

Soooo finally Sony *starts* getting competitive with MFT! After so many years...
Now they just have to release good E lenses !

On article Throwback Thursday: Sony Cyber-shot DSC-R1 (209 comments in total)
In reply to:

EricAotearoa: This was made just before Sony bought out Konica-Minolta's photo imaging unit in 2006. Sony had their own certain styling up until then. After 2006, their styling changed.

Indeed, the R1 was very interesting, KM's A2 was great too (I had one), and I hoped that merging those 2 an even greater camera could come out!
Sadly it never happened...

In reply to:

garyknrd: I have the Mi 5. Extremely cheap, and very good phone IMO. I would not hesitate to buy another one.

Same here. Love my Mi5 more than S7, for half the price. Only waterproofing is missing...
I have no LTE frequency issues (I live in France and use Orange).
I may buy one of those Mi5s for my wife.
Sony compact versions are nice but overpriced indeed, if Xiaomi would offer a 4,5" or 4,7" version with same specs (only smaller battery of course) I would love it even more.

In reply to:

JakeB: Can Sony NOT make an ugly camera?

Yeah, it's a tool, got it.

Will no doubt appeal to those with the souls of plumbers.

A99 was the most beautiful DSLR or SLT camera ever made!
Followed by D500...

I thought that the A mount was dead...
Nice to see it's not, I really didn't see that A99 II coming.
I used to shoot with Sony SLTs for years, now I switched to another brand because those bulky cameras and lenses don't fit my needs anymore but it was a really good system with lots of nice features - and excellent IQ. I like SLTs far more than Sony's mirrorless systems.

RolliPoli: ".....Nikon-style integrated shutter button and on/off switch."
...Rather, like the Pentax istD from 2003 There's nothing
uniquely Nikon about that feature.

Well Nikon was the first to introduce that in the '90s (with the F5 if I remember well)...
Very nice feature actually, despite what Ken Rockwell might say...

K1000usr: Is there a camera which sync's at 1/8000 shutter speed? Thanks.

Fuji X100s syncs at 1/4000...

"the typing experience is comparable with that of a physical keyboard."

I can't see how they dare writing that when there is no physical feedback...
