Xt10 omitted again. It's a digital camera.

@stevo23 if you know about Operation Paperclip, you will understand the meaning of stealing technology, and who is the great thief.

This helps a lot of people. For my job, I needed a webcam, but prices had gone up about four times and products were out of stock. I used DroidCam and turned my phone to a webcam. This is also a valuable solution for owners of Canon cameras.

There are a few laptop brands that put a desktop CPU in a laptop. One I know of is Eluktronics N970TF, a 17" laptop. I think within same class, a desktop CPU outperforms a mobile one. However, they may have higher wattage and heavier weight.

Hunter_C: I don't really have a good impression of Fujifilm because the "film" in “Fujifilm makes me think that it's focused on film rather than digital.
Can anybody prove me wrong please? I mean it!

They contend we are a photography company, not a camera company. And film is/was most about art of photography, not just chemistry.

Vahab: Smartphones are getting better, competing with larger sensors. Panasonic's move to ff was a forewarning to the status of MFT. Panasonic's showed flexibility, though much late. What if Olympus joined the L mount?

@AdrianTWQ I agree with your point that the entire DC market is shrinking. The significance of a smartphone is not only in taking pictures, but also viewing, and for viewing on a five inch screen or sharing on social media, the quality of a smartphone is adequate; it is also easy to share online; who bother to take pictures with a 1" sensor, transfer them from SD card to laptop, and if they remember, post on social media? I also agree L mount is not selling well, just raised a probable solution. But if they joined, a whole community of MFT shooters will buy them, maybe.

Vahab: I was waiting for a 15" laptop with 3:2 screen, and I wanted a Windows laptop. As far as I know, only Apple and Surface Book had 3:2 aspect ratio screens, which are very expensive for me. The Surface laptop 15" looks what I was waiting for (it seems a 3:2 screen).

@StoptheGad I think Apple produce 16:10? Anything squarish than longish. The closest to a square, the more I prefer.

Thanks. Asus Transformer Pro, which I looked up, is 12", which is similar to Surface tablet. I was looking for 15", and only Apple and MS offer that as far as I know.

chrshale: Seems to me Fujifilm has taken what was previously its flagship aps-c camera and intentionally turned it into a very expensive hipster gimmick. I'm sure the EVF and sensor will be fine, but Canon's 32.5 mp sensor may render this camera noncompetitive. I can recall some years ago when Fujifilm previously lagged the market in sensor development and it's happened again. I've had and used the XE-1, XT-1, and x-pro2 so I'm now saddled with lots of good Fujifilm glass. I'm sure Fujifilm execs are counting on lenses to keep people in the fold. But I can't recall ever encountering a purposeful reduction in useability from any other manufacturer of anything.

Historically, Fuji gets its sensors from Sony, and Sony sensors are 3-5 years ahead of whatever Canon produces in-house at any time.

Even typical SD cards can tolerate some harsh conditions. Tough seems to be designed for very extreme conditions.

panther fan: I know nobody wants to hear about equivalency. But with this lens being equivalent to a 40mm F2.8 and Sony E-mount just recently having three new 40mm options

[Samyang 45mm F1.8 AF] [Sigma 45mm F2.8] [Batis 40mm F2 CF]

And Sony claiming the A7R IV being an MF replacement would you mind doing a comparison shoot?

This lens on a GFX 50S and 100 vs the Batis or Sigma on the A7R IV?

Fuji is more enjoyable to take photos with.

Vahab: Benq produce excellent monitors. I bought a Benq business monitor. The quality is very good, less eye strain and most importantly for me was the 16:10 aspect ratio. I'm not sure which aspect ratio is ideal for photo/video editing, but for programming 16:10 is good, like to legal papers on the display side by side.

David610 you're welcome!

BenQ and Philips have 25" monitors with 16:10 aspect ratio. The Philips seems 8-bit. I'm happy with the BenQ.

I think the only 3:2 aspect ratio in laptops is by Surface Book which is very expensive now. Heuawi mate is another option.
