Don Sata: No X-Pro1

No Fuji X Trans sensor at all. Logarithms for Fuji sensors are hard to develop. Fuji needs to do something about this.

On article Apple Photos gets smarter in iOS 10, macOS 'Sierra' (61 comments in total)

Glad to see the improvements for Apple Photos. Contrary to what many have said Apple is taking its application very seriously and it has become a real tool for photographers and photo enthusiasts like me. I left Aperture about a year ago and switched to LR. I never enjoyed Adobe's interface and was not really enjoying my workflow at all. I switched to Apple Photos recently as it has become much more robust with plugins and editing capabilities. The interface is really intuitive and so simple that I can see how many will be using this great piece of software.

sierranvin: This will be an excellent backup device to carry in reserve on wildlife photoshoots into the 3rd world! Also as the primary - hooray - I've got less weight - for backcountry travel.
Well done Sony!

What? Did they find a new world? Not even a second but a third world? What solar system? Why wasn't this covered in the news?

What's the strategy here? Can someone explain?

On article Retro through-and-through: Fujifilm X-Pro2 Review (2501 comments in total)

In my opinion this review is full of subjective viewpoints that belong to the reviewer only. For example, to state that the camera is more appropriate for primes and asses the ISO dial control is quirky is just matter of personal taste. I feel comfortable using zoom lenses with my X-Pro2 and I find the new ISO control very useful, just lift and rotate with your right hand (in addition to the extra Fn button that it liberates).
Since the original X100 I felt very comfortable with Fuji's rangefinder approach. I sold all my gear and I never looked back. Of course, I have been shooting the X-Pro1 for a while and I find that the hybrid viewfinder offers the best of both worlds.
This review seems to be written in a hurry, without an objective and impartial point of view. This site should remember that everything published in this website has a strong impact on the public. Subjective opinions do not help buyers to make a fair assessment of the products reviewed here.

I own the first version of this camera and its performance is rock solid. I share the views of this review and confirm that is the best all-in-one camera in the market. The image quality is excellent and the 24-200 2.8 lens is superb. This camera is so good that I am debating what to do with the rest of my gear.

I encourage all who criticize to go to the nearest store and try the RX10. Rent it if you can. You will be pleasantly surprised.

Samuel Dilworth: It’s a shame that Apple has abandoned Aperture, but it’s a greater shame that no-one makes a satisfactory replacement.

Lightroom started out as a fresh and wonderful thing, but over the years it became sluggish, overloaded with features I don’t need or want, and increasingly messy in terms of user interface.

Capture One is arguably worse.

Nothing has the spit and polish of Aperture. I loved clicking on the Aperture icon in the Dock and keyboard-shortcutting my way through a new batch of photos. I’ve never really enjoyed using other imaging apps in that way – only their results (which in some ways were better than Aperture. For example, noise reduction and sharpening were never great in Aperture).

Oh well.

I do not know what version of Capture One you have reviewed but Capture One 8 is, in fact, very similar to Aperture. I have been playing with it for a couple of days and feels much more familiar to me than Lightroom does.

Please add me to the list of those who feel aggrieved by Apple's decision to stop supporting Aperture. Years of collecting images and hundreds of hours of work now seem to be in jeopardy. Since Aperture's death is imminent, I have started to identify the alternatives. Being a Fuji and Sony owner, Capture One is on top of my list and the obvious second contender is Adobe Lightroom. Transitioning to either means that I will lose all the adjustments I have made to my images in Aperture unless I export individual images!! Ouch! That really hurts.
On the other hand I wonder if Phase one will be in business long enough so I don't see all my work work going to waste again. Adobe will certainly stay for long but now the company is smelling to monopoly for the image business.
Anyway, its very disappointing how Apple has decided to give a kick on the butt to some of its loyal customers. That does not seem right, at least to me.

I got a bunch of plug-ins for Aperture and I am afraid that they won't be compatible with Photos. We will see if those who make the plug-ins such as Nik Software make the updates necessary to be usable in Photos. Might be time to switch to lightroom :(

Nice system, certainly impressive. Would be tempted to buy this camera if its interface did not feel like a playstation.
