The Canon D10 might have seemed odd and unwieldy on land. However, out snorkeling and diving the design was absolutely outstanding. I really liked that camera.

I'm not an apple user but this this is going to be a huge win for Apple. This phone is going to bring millions of new users into the apple ecosystem. All over the world people use android because iphones are overpriced. I would expect this to kill in India and China which is exactly where apple is getting killed. Competition is always good for the consumer so with this phone coming out we all win.

marc petzold: The X100 V is undoubtly with the new Lens the best of this Series yet, also finally with better build quality, Top Deck, further the Line goes straight through from left to right, not shifted after the Lens, like all previous versions....that was optically onto the silver-black body annoying, i asked myself when would Fujifilm fix this...well, so much for Aesthetics. ;)

What i do dislike, like DPR mentioned, the Menues getting more complex...c'mon Fujifilm, you can do it better. Take an Look @Leica, Simplicity rules. ;)

People that complain about menus make me giggle. Once you have used the camera for a few weeks its a completely nonissue IMO

Davidgilmour: Lol, yet the original X-100 takes better JPEGs with the utterly brilliant magical Bayer sensor. The colours are just a miracle!

The OG x100 images are indeed magic. However having owned both xtrans and bayer sensored x100s it's hard to tell the difference in everyday use. I'm not sure I could tell the difference. Additionally the Contrast Detect AF on the original was absolutely atrocious in low light. Its basically a focus and recompose camera.

zzzxtreme: any owners of x100 series can comment if they get issues with dust on sensor? I do like the convenience of fixed compacts, but I hear dust horror stories on Coolpix A

I owned the original x100 and the x100f and never had dust issues in the deserts of arizona and mexico. I also rarely use the UV filter because of the added bulk.

Why do you keep covering and supporting products that are the result of intellectual property theft?

Daft Punk: Too many people here failing to understand the X-T4. This is a hybrid stills / video cam and is targeted at people that shoot both. Like me.

In terms of video let us be absolutely clear - this is THE best mirrorless cam for video you can buy in terms of features and value. In some respects it beats even cams designed for video like the S1H.

The X-T4 simply crushes ALL of the Sony's because it does internal 10 bit. Sony's only do 8 bit. This makes a huge difference when grading. Canon is not even in the game and the RP is woeful at video.

The simple bottom line is the 10 bit image quality from video with the X-T4 in terms of grading, working the files from different log profiles, keeping shadows and highlights and having decent skin tones, is noticeably better with the Fuji than ANY current Sony mirrorless. Sure the Sony will make nice files but if you have to grade them hard, 10 bits rather than 8 really matters. It is not always about sensor size, you know...

Thanks Phil. Your comment added exactly nothing to a conversation about a very specific camera. Super helpful!

h0wlback: Same sensor? Where’s all the torch and pitchforks from the Nikon releases?

It will not only get gold it will likely win camera of the year.

tokumeino: I rememeber the time when Fuji and many forumers were claiming loud that due to the mount beeing too small, IBIS was simply not possible on Fuji. Do you remember that time ? ;-)

The dude is just trolling. What is the response he was looking for? Yes?

His question added nothing to the conversation in any way. It was simply to stir up controversy for no reason.

LeoNL: Looks like the IBIS is the biggest news here. Kudos to Fujifilm for advancing this technology!

It's just a tool. The ibis is not the same as the XH-1 its magnetic instead of spring driven. It's a completely redesigned system.

That's like saying a tesla model 3 and BMW 3 series both have the same engine.

Remember when we thought only birds could fly? Then human innovation changed the equation...

Don't be an idiot. Technology does not stand still.

In reply to:

histogram: As X-T3 shooter, I like this camera. Many features has been added.IBIS, battery, video specs..... But the price is high. You can find A7 III almost same price. The Sony lenses are pricey but they have good quality. I checked the photo samples there is no difference between X-T3 and X-T4 (Even X-T2) . I think the importance is camera result not the specs. We will see in the reviews how the camera is good at real life. At least they put a new sensor on this camera or 6k video. I think this camera will share same fate with a6600 in sales (I hope not ). Stick to X-T3 for now.

Ergonomics are inferior, Ibs is inferior, 5 fps slower, No 4k 60, No 240 fps, No dual UHS-II cards, dumpster fire menus, Inferior auto WB, Inferior JPGs, looks and feels like a sony remote control, Star eater, limited long exposure settings without using bulb, lack of manual dials.

There is a lot more to a camera than the sensor

It must be a compression thing but none of the photos in this article seem sharp to my eye. Hard for me to evaluate the AF performance when everything looks blurry

In reply to:

Carol T: I thought photo processing (I have no idea about video) mostly used the CPU, not the GPU? You are still stuck with a weak mobile CPU, no matter how many powerful peripherals you add. What you really need is a better motherboard/CPU, which of course you cannot build for Apple OS. But I guess if you are just set on that Apple logo and industrial design, go for it.

The mac mini's use the intel i7 8700B which is a Desktop chip. However, the difference in thermal performance means that chip will mostly run at about 3.5GHZ (300mhz above base clock) most of the time while a desktop with a more robust thermal management system would be running over 1000 mhz faster at 4.6GHZ. For LR and PS that extra clock speed makes a big difference. So while the advertising says the system is fast in reality it's much slower than a real desktop with the same chip. The GPU in the mac mini is also hot garbage which is why this inclosure is a thing.

Hackintoshes are pretty easy to build these days. For the same cash you would have a faster system building on your own or just running windows.

stevevelvia50: Clicks or comments, comments are more important. So heres the tally via reviews!

1. Nikon Z7 the most with (4476)
2. fuji XT 3 (2475)
3. Olympus EM 1X (2408)
4. Sony a7 III (2195)
5. Canon Eos RP (1679)
6. Leica Q. (1655)

9. Fuji X3 Pro. (1421)
10 Olympus EM 5 Mark II (1412)
11. Sony 6400 (1239)

There are others, but these stand out.Comments mean that a camera had gained the most attention, whether negative or positive, it doesn't matter.

2000 of those comments were people making fun of nikon for releasing a 3k camera with 1 memory card slot. That hardly counts

In reply to:

larkhon: People were complaining about the "old" sensor recycled in the Z50. I find it gives decent results compared to current APS-C cameras.

@ lightright- The xt3 and xt30 have the exact same sensor so yes its dual gain in this price point.

In reply to:

Michael Ma: Perhaps the Canon 5D Mark III should be included? A camera released 7 years ago, still holding on to the #1 most used camera spot after smartphones according to Flickr that collects stats from over 50,000 people still uploading daily.

The 6d is on the list because it brought FF cameras down in price by almost $1000 and made them more accessible. I think the d750 is on the list because it was the first non "Pro body" to have the focusing system from the top shelf model with 3d tracking with a semi pro price tag.

the 5dIII was very much an evolutionary update that was not nearly as significant as the video specs on the 5II at the time.

In reply to:

Shadow9d9: D500 should have been on there.

Id say thats a bit of a stretch. The Xt-3 shoots higher FPS, has face detect AF, solid tracking with af all the way to the corners of the fame, it shoots better video, has focus stacking, weighs half a much, and has a 36 raw buffer instead of 25 on the d500. It also has an entire lens line designed for the sensor. The d500 is the best apsc DSLR but I dont think its the best apsc camera anymore.
