Edmond Leung: So, we should more focus on chemical studies to support electronic development.
It seems the best investment in photography is still the good optical lenses, but not the digital cameras. Digital camera technologies are too easy and too fast be outdated.

badi couldn't’ agree more! I compared some of my photos from my EOS-20D (circa 2005) to my EOS-80D (recently purchased) and in most situations, especially on a quality high-res monitor (I haven’t printed out anything in years) there wasn’t much of a perceptible difference in quality.

pdelux: Welcome to last week.

You tell him Rishi! Personally this has been the best article I’ve read on the subject.

PLShutterbug: Cool! We’re going back to film now!

Yeah, sort of right? :-)

Zdman: Before everyone gets excited Invisage were pioneers of this technology and even managed to get a mass prodcution partner. So what happened? Well there a a few little disadvatages not mentioned here. First reset noise (Ktc) and dark current which was more than a magnitude higher than CMOS. The only published reading was 600 electrons per second dark current for a 1.5um pixel. Even with a larger full well thats probably 4 bits of noise after a second. Then there's non uniformity due to an inability to get a consistent layer. Finally there are lifetimes issues so don't expect the blue dots to last as long as red dots which will change the long term colour accuracy. We might even see sensor burn in with long time lapeses.

Hello, layman here, what’s dark current?

Wow! Seems like the holy grail of photo-sensor design has been achieved here. Just wonder how long it will take to become affordable, reliable and wide-spread? Maybe in time for the Fuji X-T3 later this year? LOL! Of course not. Still fascinating tech though.

VENTURE-STAR: Sony is a significant shareholder in Tamron, so why is this such a big deal?

Interesting...didn’t know that.

entoman: It's great that Tamron (and others) are expanding their ranges to provide better cover for Sony, and hopefully other mirrorless brands.

What really surprises me, although there may be good reasons for it, is that as far as I'm aware, there are no third-party lenses for Fujifilm's very popular cameras. This would be a lucrative market, as Fujifilm has a significant number of lenses "missing" from it's range.

It does seem like the Sony brand, especially in FF are taking off now.

28-75mm? That’s an odd zoom range IMO. Usually fixed aperture f2.8 standard zooms are in the more useful 24-70mm range no?

Nick8: Has DPR quit reviewing lenses?
The last lens review is more than 1 year old:

Strange...

I’d like to know too! Haven’t read one for a very long time...

Link | Posted on Feb 22, 2018 at 12:18 UTC

Considerably cheaper than Canikon offerings yes, I just hope the price doesn’t reflect the quality and reliability of the lens! Tamron and Sigma have made positive strides in that direction of late...I hope it continues here too.

Shlomo Goldwasser: "It's not totally clear-cut who this camera is for."

Given its price and feature set it is directly competing with the Panasonic G9 and Olympus OMD-EM1mkii, as well as the Nikon D500. While the x-h1 has not been tested yet, its spec sheet and feature set are not as impressive as the competition.

This camera looks like fanservice.

Obsolescence pixel-shift might be tricky on Fuji’s X series due to the non-standard X-Trans sensor’s color filter array, it’s not a simple 4-point grid like with Bayer sensors.

coody: What is its size by comparing with the X-T2 , X-E3 or Sony A6500?

Renenant indeed

photomedium: Anyone has any idea about the internally recorded color depth on this thing?

Only 8 bit, no 10 bit available if that’s what you were hoping for.

Snoddas: Fuji X got the grip at last, now give us some big lenses to match the grip...

A fast and chunky 200mm (300mm equivalent) telephoto is on the way. There are also already a 50-140mm f2.8 and 100-400mm lenses available from Fuji.

RooksTemplar: For us slow-mo lovers how many frames can it put out in 1080?

120 FPS.

A very interesting development, but still feels likes it’s going to be years before actual mass-market cameras receive this tech.

In reply to:

armanius: I wasn't going to get it ... But now ... Was hoping for additional PDAF points to fill the sides of the frame. I guess that will be on the XT3.

Rumoured for release at Photokina this year apparently. I hope that's the case and if so, that it keeps the compact dimensions and lighter weight of the X-T2. And doesn't bulk up too much like the X-H1.

In reply to:

TheWhiteDog: One thing they need to do in firmware quickly: get one of the dials to be able to do exposure compensation. Should be easy to do I think. Also, I'm sure there will be firmware updates galore for other niggles. Will be interesting to see what happens.

This is a new kind of camera for Fuji so there are bound to be firmware niggles, like there was on the original X100 (remember how bad that was?!) but they pretty much fixed it. Firmware upgrades are what Fuji does better than anybody else. Maybe due to the mess that was the firmware of the original X100?

In reply to:

Kwick1: The lack of an exposure compensation dial is a deal-breaker for me. And a bigger grip, extra weight, but no larger battery? Why? Missed opportunity, in my opinion.

Gail44 I've never had the need to use it ever on my Fuji. I only shoot RAW so take care of that (if needed) in post.
