On article Fujifilm X-H1 First Impressions Review (718 comments in total)

Are 16-47mm f1.8 or 2 and 47-135mm f1.8 or 2 lenses impractical (in terms of price and size) for Fuji APS-C? If not Fuji should make them. That will make their system a complete replacement for Canikon's FFs. And also a 16-70mm f2.8. And all the specialty zooms and primes that makes a light mirrorless system are already made by Fuji.

I donno why I find this gallery so uninspiring :( .

AFAIK many high profile movies shot with Arri are shot in 2.8K and then upsampled to 4K for the final output.

The front camera lens focal length is 2.87 mm. What is the crop factor (compared to FF)? I mean what is the 35mm equivalent focal length of the front camera?

tedolf: The first photo of the girl and the photo of the cat prove just how worthless lenses of this type are. The DOF is so shallow that the unnatural subject separation in the first shot makes it look like the background was added in a cheap imitation of PhotoShop. In the photo of the cat, the DOF is so shallow that her rear end is out of focus and distracting. The human mind has certain expectations of how things should look normally. Diverge from that with perspective distortion, unnaturally shallow DOF, etc. and the viewer's attention is directed to the unnaturalness of the scene rather than the subject.

These photo's would never win let alone place in a publicaly judged photo contest. The average person would just think that they look "weird", and not in a good way.

@tedolf: I agree. The first photo looks freakish to me, because of the reasons you mentioned. But I find the cat photo OK.

kadardr: The solution for the problems is an M5 (within Canon)

But with a 15-45mm f3.5-6.3(!) lens, it will collect even less light. But of course you can use other lenses, but then compactness/ portability suffers.

KLO82: So compared to G5X/ G7XII/ RX100V, use a larger sensor, and then lower the light gathering capability by using a slower lens. So whats the point?! Thanks a lot dpreview for publishing the equivalent aperture graph!

@Erick L: In G1X Mark III's user manual, Canon says that it is good for 23.4" x 15.6" prints. In G7X2's user manual it recommended same sized print. In higher ISOs the sensor size will be very important in determining the enlargement size, but as the G1X2 does not have any actual light gathering advantage, the point is moot.

@Erick L: I agree. But please enlighten me what this camera achieved by simultaneously using a larger sensor and a slower lens. If light gathering is not important, why use the larger sensor in the first place? Why not use an 1" sensor like the other compacts? It is like going one step forward and then 2 steps backwards.

I was talking abou RX100V, which is smaller and lighter than G1X mark3 (though it is not weather resistant). AFAIK, RX100V has faster focusing too.

Image level noise has nothing to do with pixel pitch.

You are saying that the lens is slower to be smaller. But then, it is heavier than G5X/ g7X2/ RX 100V, but with less light gathering ability. So what's the point?

1. Better x and y axis tracking (in both viewfinder and live view autofocus).
2. 180 degree tiltable touchscreen.
3. ISO invariant sensor.

jay jay02: A nice gallery, but NOT impressed by image quality.

@jay jay02: all the images in this sample gallery are OOC jpegs, which hardly can show high DR. Usually the jpeg engines are optimized to show around 8.3 stops of DR which is not ideal for high DR scenes and not enough to show difference of DR between cameras.

Copal Fit: I downsize all my photos which I post on any social networks to 1500 pixels on the widest side anyway. And I include a watermark. All for obvious reasons.

I downsize all my photos to 2100 pixels on the long side.

janist74: My Galaxy S8 has no such issues....

@PhotoFactor: S8 usually is displayed in stores with "Adaptive Display" mode, which is the oversaturated mode described above by the TrojMacReady. In "Adaptive Display" mode, the white point of the display is around 7500 kelvin (unlike sRGB's and Adobe RGB's 6500 kelvin white point). So the display is not blue shifted, it is blue by design in adaptive display/ oversaturated mode.

"93%DCI-P3". As DCI-P3 is designed mainly for projectors, it seems that it is very hard to cover the entire DCI-P3 in a monitor.

Isn't it ironic that the sample photos of this new 42.2 MP camera are shown in 1MP?
