On article Fujifilm X-Pro2 versus X-T2: Seven key differences (335 comments in total)
In reply to:

rdupre: Warning: a friend and me, we where in Cambodia en I have a xE2, my friend has a XT1. One day it was like 40 degrees Celsius and both cameras did not function anymore.
Back in Holland we thought that a reset will solve that problem, but no.
My camera has to be fixt and that cost 488,36 Euro.
The reparation of the XT1 from my friend is about the same price.
Fantastic cameras, but not for hot climates.
So, I have to sell all my gear, my lenses and go back to Nikon.
Maybe it is a good thing when DPR will make notice of this shortcoming.

Not buying your story. But if true I'm sorry for your troubles. They are however unique to you and only you.

40 degrees Celsius is around 104 Fahrenheit and I used the original x-t1 in Red Rock Canyon in Nevada at 108 degrees (likely hotter) without issue. I have 2 friends that own ex fujifilm camera who live in Arizona - similar temperatures - no issue.

Best of luck in the future.

So we called Fuji and they told us that the Fuji cameras are not fit to function over 40 degrees Celsius.

Fantastic cameras, but not for hot climates.
So, with pain in my hart I have to sell all my gear, my lenses and go back to Nikon.

HenryDJP: Only time will tell after a few real reviews, but on paper the Fuji XT2 is nowhere near $600 more of a camera than the Sony A6300.

I own the a6300.

I would gladly pay $600 for dual card slots alone.

$600 for the performance Fujifilm offers.... Bargain.

LackingCommonSensor: I'd like to own a camera like this for JPEGs, not Raw. And I'd bet that the output is and would be satisfying to those owning it. Not everyone is conducting forensic examination of the image files. Some want a camera more versatile than an iPhone, with better image quality and lens. It has that.

DPR, to me anyway, takes a snobbish attitude toward camera reviews, measuring against some elusive standard and idealized photographer.

You want to attack dpreview and call their reviews snobbish go right ahead.

Shame on you.

Nikonandmore: My honest 2 cents? The X-Pro2 was just released & already looks like a dated camera. I find this all a bit too ridiculous. There are too many cameras on the market already & too more many being released too fast that are all too similar to each other. Looks like everyone just makes the same camera again & again & again with minimum invovation. The amount of cameras that are all basically the same among different brands & even models of the same brand, is astonishing. And no one knows how to name cameras anymore other than calling everything "something X". This industry becomes a mix of boredom, endless higher cost & minimal true advancements. There are more new cameras being released faster than fresh milk bottles at the supermarket. Im surprised no one is making these disposable yet to accelerate the process even more.. or cameras able to self-destruct itself a few months later so we keep buying more "same" stuff even faster.. of course, they need to be called the "D-iXposable"..

He had is chance. He blew it.

He made a joke post - look at his name "LackingCommonSensor"

He isn't serious about his hate of dpreview. You guys fell for it.

In reply to:

MDRCHINA: I bought into the a7 series (a7, a7r and now the a7rII) for the sensor and the form factor. This lens is massive and eliminate the form factors which initially were so appealing. What happens when Canon and Nikon place and EVF on there next DSLR's?
I will stay with the 55mm 1.8, the Batis 85mm 1.8 and the Loxia 21mm 2.8. You folks split the pixels and line pairs.

"What happens when Canon and Nikon place and EVF on there next Dslrs? "

?

This doesn't make sense.

In reply to:

Herp Photos: Is there going to be capability and a utility to grab single photo frames from 4k footage like you can with panasonic 4k?

@dulynoted - I get that. I own a a6400 and GH4. Remember however that even if you shoot video to pull stills, you are dealing with a heavily compressed 8mp jpeg. None of these cameras support RAW or DNG video.

It is only useful if you ABSOLUTELY need 30fps vs 11fps and are willing to give up huge amounts of picture quality - essentially small prints (if that) and web use.

Its the ultimate spray and pray brute force method for getting a shot.

Cheers.

Even if there is do you understand shutter angle?

Capturing stills from video isn't necessarily useful for moving subjects because of the needed shutter speeds that produce useful 24p cinematic video. Upping shutter angle will help for stills but compromises the video look. You can't really have both.

I rent red products frequently and this will explain it to you.

http://www.red.com/learn/red-101/shutter-angle-tutorial

By far the most common setting for cinema has been a shutter angle near 180 degrees, which equates to a shutter speed near 1/48 of a second at 24 fps.

1/48 of a second it too slow to be useful for much.

Make sense?

@NikonandTroll the only thing we have learned is that you trolled, you complained, you wined, and you couldn't back up anything you said.

Be happy, stay positive, and don't bother posting in the future if you and going to behave like that.

You got caught and I am hoping people flag your account for abuse.

Please don't post any more.

I always get a kick out of people complaining "there is too much choice available to me."

Cowardly attitude. Be ashamed of yourself. The other posters are right. This is pathetic. If you are afraid of choice, don't buy anything. If you are afraid you won't own the latest and greatest, buy and sell/trade. You can own everything available for very little loss. Or just rent.

But don't complain about options and choice. So very very Lame Nikonandmore.

In reply to:

photogeek: I had an X-T1. I'd be fine sticking with Fuji if it wasn't for three things:
1. Lenses have slow and noisy focus mechanism
2. Metering is nowhere near as good as the competition, often under- or over-shoots.
3. Poor support of the sensor layout in Lightroom and elsewhere. Yes, it's poor even with all the improvements Adobe has made.

Ultimately #1 made me sell it. Lenses were otherwise excellent, but in this day and age I expect silent and fast autofocus.

Plus Capture one pro does a fantastic job with Fujifilm raw files. No excuse for not using it.

///M: I was expecting something spectacular when they announced a 50 /1.4 for $1500. This is just meh... specular highlights in the OOF area are cat eyes, with bad offset fringes, and little character, too analytical. Why didn't Sony shoot for f/1.2 or even f/1.0, if Leica can make a 50 /0.95 that is spectacular for their mirrorless system, why can't Sony? In the history of fast 50s, this is not even in the top 10.

Obviously you care or you wouldn't be posting.

Strange behavior.
