  • Looking at the sample gallery, I see a big sea of greenish tones. Unattractive. Don't care whether the camera is fast or not, low noise or not.

  • @Mr. Bolton: same here - Fuji Jpegs have been - since ages - the best of all brands by far. Yes the first X- cameras had more limited DR therefore tendency to stroong contrast - in Raw no problem...

  • I can only wonder how people can find this overpriced. It has a great sensor, IBIS, a nice processor that delivers film simulations that no other manufacturer has, that alone is enough. For the...

  • It has an excellent sensor, IBIS (no other MF camera maker can do this), and is relatively compact. I'd take this any day over a NIkon Z7 or whatever.

  • I had the a7rII for 2 years, had to fight with the unattractive colors all the time, the viewfinder is dim in comparision, AF not good either. Once you shoot with a Fuji color is always right OOC,...

  • S2pro was my first serious digital camera and I was blown away by it's images. They looked like beautiful chromes, the body way a snail by today's standards, high ISO way only good up to ISO800, ...
  • ... and I re- sold it. Way too heavy for my (personal) taste. For low light situations even f2,8 is too slow, I then prefer my 35/1,4 or my 56/1,2. The 16-55 is sharp, but in prints you won't see a ...
  • I used both on stabilized (X-H1) and unstabilized (X-T1 + T3) bodies, for dimly lit concerts, musicals and such. 90mm is indeed not easy, you need at least 1/90s, if the person moves, better 1/125 ...
  • Ah, it took me a call to the Epson Hotline, a re- read of your posting, and a re-try on my iMac to find what you meant. I have now found the right option to use the full Epson  driver. Before it ...
  • I only found one driver, but I try what you said....
  • Well, didn't read the Halide Article, it's an entire novel. But the ProRaw format works excellent for me, incredible (!) DR and noise in low light/ night shot. It breaks the boundaries of ...
  • Replied in ProRAW
    Just click on "import" in LR classic, choose iPhone as source and do the usual thing :-) I do it since 2 weeks or so, and it works fine.
  • Created discussion thread Epson p800 under Big Sur
    Hi, after what seems an eternity I have switched on my p800 to my iMac that runs Big Sur. I managed to print an image with basic settings, but all more refined settings like paper thickness, media ...
  • Replied in Shock?
    Cameras are a bad object for nostalgia. Today's top of the line is tomorrows outdated stuff. The X-T3 is outdone in every discipline, more or less, by the X-T4. Same sensor yes, but more film ...
  • if there is one. Made by Sony. So far no signs, as far as I know.
  • As most others said: 2022, Q1-2, maybe even Q3. It will probably get: - higher rez EVF - faster AF, specially eye AF, up to Sony's standard' - new sensor, possibly global shutter one or at least ...
