entoman: Always wondered about the logic behind changing the Fuji name. Originally the film-manufacturing branch was just plain Fuji, and the camera manufacturing branch was Fujica (as in FUJI CAmera). Then they changed the branding of the cameras to Fujifilm - although none of them accept film. VERY odd

entoman Indeed...the X-T2 and Leica-M are the best looking on the market.

Only about 260 shots per-charge unacceptable! My X-E2 has a rating of about 350, but in real terms is a lot less. So I carry around 3 batteries with me. Battery life is still my main bug-bear with mirrorless! The GX-9 seems to retail for a lot less than the competition though.

mpb002: I do not like how Fujifilm recently acquired Xerox then decided to cut 10,000 jobs. I guess its good for Fujifilm’s bottom line. I think I will continue to stay with Canon.

It’s not nice I know. But if Fuji hadn’t bought out Xerox and dropped those 10,000 jobs. Xerox would of gone under with the loss of all its workforce of 40,000! But still that’s a heck of a lot of jobs! A business has to be profitable to survive over the long run unfortunately.

moimoi: Good for Fuji. Make a Fuji X100 with a FF sensor equipped with a native 35 mm (I would be okay with a f/1.8-2 lens) and 50 mm converter. I will buy one! I like more and more my X100T, but not enough pixels and still does not resolve details like FF does.

virtualreality I was about to say...

Steve in Scotland: I'm still impressed by the results I get from my XPro1 and the fact that firmware updates are still made for it.

A couple of typos here, can’t edit comments on the iPhone! So ‘than’ rather than ‘as’ and ‘latter’ rather than ‘later’.

Same for me when it comes to the X-E2. Puts out higher quality images for similar subjects as my newer higher-res Canon EOS-80D. Still need the later for high-speed telephoto photography.

Good for them! Even though it still seems that Instax is the main reason for that success.

entoman I’ve also thought it rather odd too. Fujica would be a much more appropriate brand name for their camera and lens lines. But you’re right historically it doesn’t have that good a cachet. Still it wouldn’t bother me if they changed it to that.

I don't pertain to understand the video/pro-video market. But if this 'affordable' pro broadcast camera provides all the features that segment requires, why do cameras for said market sector usually cost...what...10 times as much?

GabrielZ: What’s the advantage of having variable aperture on such a tiny sensored camera? Unless it uses a much larger sensor than previous incarnations.

From my experience, photos from modern smartphones are rarely if ever overexposed for one thing. Also except when taking close-ups DoF in smartphone photos is nearly always sharp from near to far. So I still don't see the use case for a variable aperture on a small sensor smartphone camera.

That camera is huge for a 4/3 device! Does it really need to be that big?

That’s quite a handsome little fake camera.

NickyB66: That's shocking.

Nice pun.

Nice! If it was exactly the same size/weight as the Spark, had 4K/60fps and the same amount or more of flight time as the Mavic Pro, I would of been really blown away...bring on the Mavic Air 2 next year? Still quite impressive. I’m not sure of course, but this seems the kind of (useful) gadget that would need as much processing power as the latest smartphones.

Good for them. Nice to hear some good news coming out of the troubled Nikon camp.

physguy88: Excited to see this.

The display is made by a company called Leia Inc. it uses nanophotonics technology (this is a new subfield of applied physics that has blossomed in the past decade) to project dozens of different images in different angles. As a result, from any perspective within a wide zone in front of the display, your eyes will see two different, perspective correct, stereoscopic images, no goggles needed. For example, you can look at a vase from one side of your screen, and it gives you one stereoscopic picture, and then you look at it from the other side and it will show you the other side of the vase.

This gives you the illusion that your phone is a window to a real hologram that sits just behind the glass.

I'm not sure about the camera module. The way it's worded, it could be that you could attach this phone to a red camera as a controller rather than a small camera that attaches to the phone.

Thanks for the info...now I understand what Reds publicity blurb is all about.

G Sciorio: Happy an American camera company pushes the envelop and stays in business. Hopefully GoPro does too.

mattd007 indeed! Sad to see what’s happening to GoPro.
