Lan: Camera module announcement does not leave me feeling S8ed; more F-ingdisappointed ;)

Umm...is Samsung now going start to disappoint with its flagship phones going forward, as Apple has over the last few years?

Film and film based cameras seem to be going through a renaissance of late.

On article F is for '4th': Hands-on with Fujifilm X100F (424 comments in total)
In reply to:

Jostian: not even basic weather resistance :( got caught in a rain storm with my X100T and it got water in, and never fully recovered :) so I say now what I said then, would love a new X100xxx but must have some weather sealing... guess I'll wait and hope for another year or 2.

Yes, that's my only real disappointment with the F...lack of weather sealing. For a premium compact camera that's likely used for street photography and the like. It really needs it.

Lovely camera, but still very expensive. The new T-20 with the premium kit lens is cheaper I believe.

There's enough to diffentiate between the T20 and T2, just like there is between say Nikon's low and mid-range APS-C cameras despite using the same res sensors and similar image processors.

PPierre: Hum, was considering an A7II, bit now, I may consider going Fuji again :)

About you're X-Trans issues...the guy behind Iridient Developer (one of the best X-Trans RAW converters) is nearly ready to introduce an X-Trans to DNG plugin for Lightroom that will be available for both Windows and Mac users. It's already in beta and ready to try out.

On article Leica Boss: Hands-on with new Leica M10 (169 comments in total)

I like it, but then I've always been a fan of Leica's M-series. On the spec page though, it says it only supports sRGB with no Adobe RGB it seems. What I'm really happy about though, is that its noticeably thinner. That was my main bugbear with the M-series transition to digital, especially with the newer versions...the cameras were just too thick. It would also of been nice to see Leica use one of the newer higher-resolution back panel LCDs like that found on the Fujifilm X-Pro2 for instance, which is also 3" but with 1.62 million dots.

On article Canon granted third most US patents in 2016 (145 comments in total)

So many patents yet such a conservative camera line, but then cameras are only a sideline for Canon nowadays.

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.

Yes, reckon that was a typo...

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 (2213 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.

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...
