Meh...just another clone in an already crowded market.

The graphite finish on the X-Pro2 with that lens looks exquisite! Turns it into a very classy looking camera...almost up there with a Leica M-series!

The X-T2 looks good too. What I don't like there though is the rear view, with all those 'silver graphite' painted plastic buttons...yuck...I hate metallic painted plastic! They should of left them in black like they did with the graphite X-Pro2.

Looking at these two models now, for the first time I fancy the X-Pro2 over the X-T2...never thought that would ever happen!

That's a very nice setup!

I like the idea of the 'Cinemagraph'. I remember looking at some photos in this style some years back. One I remember was a still of a model with a with a live action seashore in the background, it was a nice effect. There was an exhibition of such photo/video hybrids a few years back somewhere in the world too...don't remember where though I'm afraid.

jcvjcvjcvjcv: Not at 32" and not for $5K.

Highly doubt it offers "Displayport 3.1"...

Yes, reckon that was a typo...

On article Action-packed: Sony a6500 review (1156 comments in total)

Why in the compare mode there is no Fujifilm X-T2 option offered for comparison? Its got to be its closest rival right?

On article Elevating X-Trans? Fujifilm X-T2 Review (2204 comments in total)

Just did a direct comparison with the a6300 (85%) using the widget above and apart from ergonomics/handling and a very slightly lower score on metering/focus accuracy. The Sony beats the Fuji on all fronts, even build quality has the exact same score, I thought the Fuji would win there. Still...I prefer the X-T2, a much nicer looking camera and future Kaizen firmware upgrades might improve performance. Even though the new a6500 will probably clobber it.

On article Hands-on and in-depth with the Sony a6500 (556 comments in total)

This is what the A6300 should of been from the beginning. It could spell trouble for Fuji's X-T2.

On article Aura is a next generation digital picture frame (74 comments in total)

A great idea but it seems really expensive.

Link | Posted on Oct 4, 2016 at 12:28 UTC as 22nd comment

So still not as good as the S7, HTC 10 or even the S6 Edge Plus. A big improvement compared to the 6S which was a disappointment performance wise when it was released (up until that model Apples smartphone cameras usually went to the top of the Dx0Mark ranks when released) but still not as good as I was hoping...being an iPhone user myself. Lets wait and see how the 7 Plus does...

GabrielZ: This camera has some very fast processors! 18fps full-res RAW with C-AF, 60fps without...wow! But its 4/3 sensor will never match APS-C or FF for DR.

I have nothing against m43 cameras. But the formats DR characteristics are not generally as good as larger format sensors, this new Oly may change that to a certain extent, but its not there yet. DPReview will corroborate this too. I also found Saurat's comment quite amusing...if you only knew how old I actually am! But I'm not going to tell you. :)

A nice upgrade for these cameras. It would of been nice to see 4K/60fps capability though. Mind you that would of required a powerful processor together with the heat, cost and battery drainage issues that would cause.

In reply to:

cd cooker: 'X is focused on compactness, GFX allows different aspect ratios and the ultimate image quality. X and GFX: two systems that complement each other.'

So X is for APS-C and GFX is for medium format. Does it imply there will be FX from Fuji that is for full frame?

Fuji is still working together with Panasonic or organic imaging sensors I believe. If they finally crack the overheating and mass production issues an APS-C organic sensor could easily out do a standard FF sensor on DR.

What's the point of the clip on EVF? Is it going to be an optional extra to keep the basic purchase price down? As it seems to incorporate a tilt-able back screen too. Just had a look over the official press release and from the side the GFX looks incredibly thick and chunky for a mirrorless! The Hasselblad X1D's main body thickness seems svelte by comparison...from the official press photos anyway.

They've removed the ultrasonic sensor cleaning! I remember what an annoyance dust particles settling on the sensor of my EOS-20D was like. This is a step backwards and penny pinching if ever I saw it.

On article Rebel in your pocket: Canon EOS M3 Review (464 comments in total)

If the EOS M3 is so uncompetitive compared to the competition with sub-par performances in nearly all categories that matter, why did they still give it the relatively high score of 75%? In the past on this site that would of been a silver rating no?

On article Nikon D500 versus D750: Which one is right for you? (383 comments in total)

This article is timely for me. As I'm in a situation now where I'm trying to choose between a D750 and D500. I really want FF this time around which works in the D750s favour, but a number of commentators here are saying the image quality hit with the D500s APS-C sensor in minimal. And I'm also reading here that the build quality of the D750 is not the best (an extremely important consideration for me!) as I want a solid reliable camera for many years to come, and can't afford to upgrade every couple of years. The D500 is also more technically advanced than the D750 and has some nice handling improvements like the AF point joystick, touch screen and those cool back-lit controls inherited from the D4/D5. But its also much more expensive in my part of the world and its not FF despite having an FF size body...decisions decisions...if the D500 had an FF sensor at the price its selling at, it would be perfect! I think I'm leaning towards the D500 anyway...
