On article Field Test: Wedding Photography with the Fujifilm X-T2 (235 comments in total)

Really nice video, very well produced. Great ad for Fuji, and not a single negative thing to report about the gear.

On article The Leica TL is an upgraded Leica T mirrorless camera (123 comments in total)
In reply to:

Paul Petersen: This camera gets so many things right. But the Leica premium just blows it out of the realm of practicality. The design, interface and style work so well. But take a look at what Fuji is offering and its no longer a conversation.

Maybe entoman can point us to all the digital Leicas that increase value with age? Good luck finding them.

In reply to:

PanchoVilla: I was at a photo walk, and I saw lots of Nikon and Canon cameras. DPReview isn't the real world. Young people don't buy mirrorless because it's freaking expensive. DSLRs are still no. 1! All you mirrorless doom and gloom fanboys are the ones who are actually on the sinking ship! Hahaha!

Wonderfully irrelevant comment.

jim11: what have they done with the mag safe connection.... Do we have to go to the apple store to charge our laptops now, or as apple would say... " we make bold moves "

Jim... Well, instead of the magsafe, you will use the charger that now comes with the device. Someone already sells a magnetic USB-C connector, just like the magsafe. If you don't like that one, buy any other USB-C charger from another manufacturer if these are more to your liking.

dennis tennis: I feel sorry for Apple. Entitled, communist customers are destroying a great company. Apple will be losing millions over this subsidy and will have to lay off thousands of employees.

Those of us who can afford it, by two Macbooks and destroy one to help keep the prices high.

Yeah, Apple is doomed. Thousands will lose their jobs, entire countries will shake etc. Good one, thanks for the laugh.

RedWattlebird: Apple and its apologists are trying to spin the USB-C exclusivity as some sort future profess,

Bullocks. Thats what were told when thunderbolt came out just a few years ago. We already need a dongle for that and last year's expensive cables are not compatible.

It looks either like haphazard upgrades to interfaces, or intended forced redundancies to create more sales.

Apple is hardly the only hardware manufacturer with a focus on USB-C, regardless wether we like that right now or not.

zakk9: The problem with this is that I need a dongle for the card reader and one for the external disk that I will have to use with the reader. Then a Thunderbolt dongle for the hub in the office and one for the hub at home. Then one for HDMI and my two extra power adapters that sit stationary at my home and my office (in addition to the one I always carry with me) will have to be replaced as well.

I don't want any of these. I want a computer that all my devices can be plugged directly in, so that I don't need to do a "dongle count" whenever I'm going somewhere, not to speak about every time I leave a hotel room or wherever.

This machine is a downgrade, plain and simple. My current MBP Retina can live for another year at least, and when the time comes, I'll have a thorough look at the Surface Something.

Fair point, but with a Surface device you will have to invest in hubs as well, at least if you have a lot of peripherals to connect simultaneously. Who knows what ports MS will have in a year or two.

F.

If there only were a place where you could go online to research stuff!

Tsk tsk tsk...

Your days of DICTATING to us what we need are over...

Technology has converged dramatically and you have run out of gas...

Dictating... there there.
And Apple is doomed, for sure.

Kiril Karaatanasov: ....and the Surface book now looks that much better with bigger battery, SD slot, detachable display, pressure sensitive screen with stylus support.

Apple are going down iPhone 7 was disappointing MacBook worse

The Surfacestuff unfortunately runs Windows, so interesting looking hardware with the usual "problem-free", "virus-free", "spamware-free" downsides.

Tungsten Nordstein: Sounds like complete post-rational bo11ocks to me. Apple have made some dumb decisions with the new laptop to try and keep their market interested. They want to strip down to the design essentials. Fewer parts, fewer things to go wrong. That's all.

£200 extra of OLED magic-strip. What a waste of time. I use my SD card a lot, Apple. Thanks a lot. Do I want another untidy external device? No.

No magsafe? Good grief.

Badi, as you say, you're guessing, so why ask others to get real?

Golfhacker27: No USB and no SD card slot. So how do I get my photos from camera to the Mac??
Answer : in addition to the Mac, they also want me to buy their overpriced adapters, dongles, etc.

Love my current MBP (even though I had to pay extra for a DVD drive, a file manager app, etc). But I'm done with Apple telling me I don't need functions and features, and then expecting me to pay more for them because actually (as they know full well), I do.

Maybe Airdrop would work for images to the Mac as well?

raindance: So many Windows trolls out tonight. Guys, you lost get over it. You failed in the mobile space that is now heavily dominated by Android and iOS, you have no eco system like that of Google and iCloud that cohesively works across your devices, you are the only game in town that still uses an antiquated operating system full off security and privacy holes that is not based on the Linux kernel. You have no home automation market, no investment in health, fitness, secure payment, messaging, music, and streaming media. You want Apple to fail for some pointless reason, but it's just not working and the stock price and value is a constant reminder of their dominance. Your sleeping giant might have woke back up, but unfortunately they missed the last ten years. Game Over, move on..

And yet more of your nonsense, most of it totally unrelated to the hardware product being discussed. And sure I stop by, even if just to point out what crap you are posting here. Maybe one day you take feedback in, that will be a good day in your personal development. Now, back to school.

I love your random capitalisations, distracts nicely from the lack of content within the sentence.

You come across like a fan-boy yourself. One can stop reading where you proclaim that someone lost and should get over it. And then talking about anything but the hardware that is discussed in this article.
Start talking on topic, instead of going on about cloud crap that nobody needs or wants to discuss, beside being OT.

Chaitanya S: Finally MS removed the PC from back of monitor and put inside the monitor stand. I was wondering how long it would take someone to design AIO without PC stuck to back of monitor.

The iMac G4 comes to mind, and that was already more than 10 years ago.

Sonyshine: Probably the first Microsoft product I have found tempting since..... well.... Windows 3.1?

A brilliant product and one that will spur Apple on to more innovation too.

Since you admit that Win 3.1 tempted you, please see a doctor. I lived through that crap, and that is one of the most disgusting Windows versions ever. Yuck. But nice to see back then how a three-year old would attempt to copy the Mac interface.

Terry Breedlove: I want a large screen sitting at a comfortable distance and height in front of me. I don't want finger prints all over it. Oh wait I have a 27" iMac that fits perfectly and runs Photoshop just fine. Kind of nice because I can sit back drink my coffee and look at my photo in comfort. Then go back to work adjusting the curves etc to my liking.

Get your point but for certain tasks and folks who used to work with Wacom, this might be a nice alternative. Having not tried the thing out myself, I reserve judgement on how well I like it and what my workflow would be like with it in the studio.
