snapa: If Ricoh could make a range finder style camera, (without that cheap clip-on EVF) they might have a winner. It is supposed to be a small pocket type camera, but that ugly looking thing on top of the camera does not cut it.
Increasing the price $400 for an orange ring around the lens is a Leica tactic. Why would Ricoh stoop so low? How good is their IBIS, better lens, or 4k video, maybe that would attract more interest if they could do that instead of an orange ring?

Perhaps it's a 14K gold ring?

MarcMedios: Honestly, for $1,400, I would demand interchangeable lenses.

I can't even imagine how you feel about the Leica Q at $5,000+

Perhaps they read books, remember those.

zakaria: Ricoh GRiii.

I may get one as a grab and go camera that I can put in my pocket, but I really don't like not having a viewfinder on my cameras.

Same here, I gave up.

ms18: It's mostly about business I only able to find very few videos regarding the actual making of photograph.

Yeah, I'm retired so no need for a business photography class, it would be nice to take some creative ones though.

Niko Todd: What is the point of having a silver version, when there are only three silver color lenses (and also soft according to reviewers)?

That's the craziest thing I've ever heard, and to think all those years I used black lenses on my silver Nikon F2A and didn't know it wasn't stylistically complete - who woulda' thunk it.

User4874739435: No. As shocking as it sounds, the most capable fixed-lens compact camera ever is... your smartphone! Can check emails, browse internet, play songs, download apps, play games, edit pictures, use Photoshop, etc. etc. etc. Yes, you heard it right!

The only person lost is the one not willing to even have a profile pic and has a profile name that looks computer-generated - Troll-ish.

I'm not sure I totally agree with that, at least not in my case but then I'm old school. I just want to best tool I can afford to do the job I want to do. I don't care what anyone else thinks about what I use as long as I get joy from using what I use. But I appreciate your statement as it relates to a newer generation perhaps.

I know it's a minor thing and probably just me but my iPhone doesn't inspire me to go out shooting, it just lets me shoot when I have nothing else available.

So0paman: Great. But i can do the same with a camera 10 times cheaper.

I'm certainly not a Leica basher but I don't see anything special that can't be done with another camera either.

Great video. I total get his point about going out and shooting only B&W so you don't get confused. I find it easier to mentally stay in B&W mode when that's what I went out looking for. It just helps me get better at shooting and seeing in B&W - I need to do more of this.

$850, what is it made by Arc'teryx?

Scottelly: I think I'd just get the Panasonic GX8 . . . because it has interchangeable lenses and produces better image quality at 200 ISO (and probably 400 and 800 ISO settings too), where the vast majority of my photography would be done with such a camera. I do like that this camera can work well at ISO 3200 though, and if I were a millionaire, I'd buy one, just to try it out. A lot of people who have them really seem to love their Fuji camera(s).

Folks keep talking about the lack of interchangeable lenses but don't seem to understand that people who buy this camera don't want to deal with a bunch of interchangeable lenses, personally I have my Sony a7RII for that.

Enzo1320: What this camera can do that any MILC can't do?

I simply have no idea what is the advantage of having a camera with a single lens.
A single. Prime. Lens.

Can you shoot in serious darkness?
Nope, but with MILC + f/1.2 you can

Can you do something else, shoot wide, or tele, or...
Nope, but with MILC + any lens, you can

Fuji has some dials,
MILCs have dials with no labels, customizable...

Seriously, I don't get it

But you want one, don't you?

Some want to be told what to think, it's easier than having to do research or think objectively.

Lan: I suppose this will be easy enough to implement. Isn't all Twitter content either deepfake and/or manipulated? ;)

Just stick yet another disclaimer on the page, and job done!

No, that would be FoxNews.

ARB1: X100V looks like it's my time to jump on the Fujifilm bandwagon. Been considering an X100 for a while as a complement to my Sony a7RII and I love the redesign and flip-down screen. Looking forward to reading the reviews.

I was always a fan of Olympus colors as well but Fujifilm has really made major strides over the years. I also spend a lot of time trying to get the colors just right with Sony but never seem to get there so this will be a welcome change. Not sure if I'll keep my Sony, time spent with the X100V will tell me if I want to go all-in on Fuji and perhaps pick up an additional camera and lenses. I do like that x-Pro3.
