About me:

Currently a student, I've been interested in photography for about 10 years now. Land- and cityscapes, people and street is what I shoot for fun. I've been also shooting in night clubs and bars as a part time job for a more than a year now. My first ILC is the Nikon D90 which I still use when shooting the latter, while my second ILC is the Fuji X-T10 which I mostly use in my spare time.

sirhawkeye64: The bigger thing is they still haven't found a way to get these to record full 4k30p for at least 30 minutes.... Granted there is the X-H1 for video, but for those who want both in the same body, this is still going to be a let down even on the newest of bodies. (For me it doesn't matter, but for those who want a stills and video camera, this might be a aspect worth look into). It seems like 30 minutes is the norm for other brands, so I don't quite understand why Fuji can't do it (I know it has a lot to do with cooling in general, but if they want to compete with Sony's high-end APS-C line (ie. the a6000-series), they had better figure it out soon).

Plus I am doubting this was a "leak" but more like a "tease" done on purpose.

The X-T20 and X-E3 offer 4k @ 30p but only for 10 minutes.

vscd: For what is a 4kp15 mode useful? Seriously questioned. For taking photos... ok, but for movies? This is ridiculous.

For marketing purposes. Most of the consumers this camera is aimed at won't even notice it can only shoot 4k @ 15p.

io_bg: Will the X-T20 get any further firmware updates?

I also doubt that. If the X-T20 got the low-light PDAF improvements (down to -1 EV) and fixed the lag when switching between the EVF and LCD, I'd be willing to trade my X-T10 for it.

matt1941: which lens mount is that?

Their own. Meaning DJI is entering the ILC market.

In reply to:

io_bg: That's some horrible vignetting, especially at the wide end.

@Stu: 5 sure, but that's to be expected from wide and standard zooms.
@panther fan: no it doesn't get rid of most of the vignetting. It's still at least 3 stops which means a lot of noise in the corners when shooting in low light (after fixing the vignetting).

How dare you say that. Canon colors are the best!

aokhrimers: No, Nikon mount why??

Probably because of the focus-by-wire system.

Yongnuo just beat Canon to the market with an EF mount mirrorless camera.

io_bg: Would've been the perfect DX portrait prime if it wasn't for the large size :)

If they weren't macro lenses then they would've been smaller. Look at those tiny 50 f/1.8s.

In reply to:

AlexBoo: For crop there is Tamron 60 mm F/2.0 which is AF (not really fast but better then MF anyway).

And this puts the Yongnuo in a weird spot. APS-C users would prefer the Tamron for its smaller size and weight (even if I expect the Yongnuo to be more expensive) while FF users which are not as price sensitive will probably prefer either OEM 60mm f/2.8s or longer lenses.

Then you probably haven't seen the Tamron 60mm f/2 macro. It's about the same width but 3.5 cm shorter and almost 200 g lighter. Though yeah, it's DX only.

Gravis: Ah, Fuji, Fuji.. How could you surprise your loyal customers more? Probably by inventing a way to make IBIS in older cameras with just a firmware upgrade :-)

Well, they could put electronic IS with a slight crop factor... ;)

IamJF: The datasheet tells 21.8mm focal length ... IT'S A 22mm LENS.

While I agree the rounding is incorrect, it's nice of Hasselblad not hiding the actual focal length. Pretty much all lenses out there are not exactly as wide or fast as stated on the lens barrel.

In reply to:

JoshuaT: The battery life is disconcerting like other mirrorless systems for long shooting sessions such as sport games, wildlife (especially in low temperatures), and wedding. If the battery grip is necessary, the weight saving advantage diminishes quickly.

It is difficult to judge the lens performance from this type of review. I would like to see more thorough testing from LenRental.

The X-H1 hasn't been marketed as a small and light camera in the first place.

DiffractionLtd: Mirrorless had the capability to be different, but that opening shot for the video, this mirrorless and its lens looks exactly like a DSLR of 10 years ago.

Mirrorless already has the capability to be different. You can choose a small camera (a la X-T20) when using smaller lenses or a large camera (X-H1) when you've got the big zooms.

MightyMike: Number fudging!

75mm F0.95 (lets say F1.0) should require a 75mm front element.... So... how does it take 72mm filters????

Now if it was a 77mm thread or even more likely an 82mm thread then sure by all means it makes sense.

Mike

Thanks for the clarification, I've never been very good at math ;)
