What a pointless comparison. The whole point of phone cameras is that their sensors have very fast readouts and they have very powerful processors, allowing computational photography that real cameras cannot even dream of.

Skipping that, it's just a tiny sensor that looks kind of crappy.

Elfotografoalocado: I'm a Fujifilm user and fan (I use the X-T line of cameras) but I think the flip-out screen is the dumbest idea I have seen in a very long time for such a mainstream camera.

Maybe not compared to something like a Canon 5D or a Sony A7 series camera, but it's certainly a camera that professionals use, and from which they expect some basics of functionality. This is something that maybe Leica or Holga or other gimmick companies would do.

Why is it that police in other developed countries, and many developing ones, kill far fewer people, despite having similar violent crime rates? How is it that the standards for the use of force are so lenient in the USA compared to any other democratic country, that there is no oversight, rules can be bent and broken at will, etc?
It's hard to be a cop in other countries as well, but other countries still manage to keep behaviour standards for officers.

Then why do they kill so many unarmed people? And considering they constantly lie in their reports, why would anybody even believe them when they say the people they killed were armed?

What would guns do exactly in Venezuela? That's not how it works, at all. The last thing Venezuela needs is a full civil war right now.

American cops are cowards and follow no protocols and no laws. They are thugs. They kill people because they are afraid of everything, trigger happy, and entitled as hell. The only threat is them.
They don't kill bad guys, they just kill random people when they feel threatened. They barely get charged, let alone convicted, even when there is abundant evidence their actions were unjustified.

And a factor in that is the gun culture in the US, where everybody thinks they are threatened 24/7 by "bad guys" (Usually racialized, or immigrants) who are out there to rape and pillage, and the only solution is to have good guys carry guns to kill them. It's frankly disgusting and kind of tragic-comic. Certainly the most hilarious is thinking that everyone having killing tools and being willing to use them is going to result in... fewer deaths, somehow?

@xPhoenix

What's wrong with abolishing the second amendment in the USA?
There's a massive problem with violence and gun prevalence, all the guns that are used in the violence in Latin America were at some point bought legally in the USA, it's a huge problem with no equivalent in the rest of the developed world.

It all comes down to a very simple reason: Other developed countries recognize that a gun is a dangerous thing and you cannot just carry an AR-15 in the street, whereas a good portion of the American population thinks they should own guns to defend themselves... From whom?

I mean for hell's sakes, you are supposedly legally allowed to carry a gun for self-defense, but the moment American cops even *imagine* someone actually has a gun (Especially if they are black) they unload 10 magazines in their torso, and then Fox News is like "HE WAS NO ANGEL, HE HAD A GUN".

(Nevermind it was his constitutional right, it got him killed by cops who are too afraid of their own shadow)

@nikonmojo, a guy with a gun STARTED the rampage. As always. Guys who think guns are a substitute to their manhood, and that they can solve any problem, including their hatred of society.

@xPhoenix, why would the media need to know about firearms? It's not like their line of work requires them to use them frequently.

TonyC5D: So Sigma has done more for APS-C by not producing anything in Fuji X mount, ok. On the one hand you praise Fuji for being champions of APS-C whilst praising a company that ignores that mount as also being champions of APS-C. Bit strange.

@shademaster, I wonder how much truth there is in that. There are third party lenses on the system, and at least the Carl Zeiss Touit 12mm has full AE and AF support, and it very much competes with Fujifilm's own 14mm. So I wonder whether Fuji X is particularly difficult to make lenses for and prevents reverse-engineering in some way, or whether it's rather a commercial choice.

I'd say that there is a larger enthusiast (And downright professional) market with Fujifilm cameras than there is with Sony APS-C, but I'm not someone with inside information.

Tom Holly: Their “medium format” sensor is pretty close to full frame anyway, so Ff would be redundant.

It seems they decided to make a tiny bit bigger than FF and call it medium format as a way to differentiate from canikon who firmly occupy the FF perch.

@Tom Holly, then there is no significant difference between APS-C and 35mm? Since it's way below 400% of the previous size, why would people want to be in full frame?

supeyugin1: This is an epic fail. And EOS M will be (half) dead too. Time to switch to Fuji or micro 4/3. Fuji is on right direction with their X-H1, just make it smaller and cheaper, and I will buy it. Otherwise I'll go for M4/3.

X-T3 is getting announced tomorrow.

On article Hands-on with the new Leica M10-P (514 comments in total)
In reply to:

landscaper1: A Leica is admittedly a marvelous, albeit overpriced, piece of photographic machinery. However, if I were a working photojournalist (Are there really that many anymore?), I'd have to question the value of using a digital Leica instead any of the several bridge cameras that feature a much lighter and more compact alternative. Yes, the FF 24MP sensor would enable much bigger enlargements, but again, how often do photojournalists make really big enlargements of their images?

@JT26: Don't forget about the Fuji X system. It has similar build quality, excellent prime lenses, excellent dials and handling, and similar compactness.

On article Nikon Z7 Review (4431 comments in total)
In reply to:

halc: "We're perplexed as to why Nikon went through the effort to recreate the exact look of a single point (square with a dot in the middle), as well as d9 (now called ‘Dynamic’), but not the rest of its not only useful - but industry-leading - AF modes"

Because it is a beta product. One has to launch some day, not wait until everything is complete.

To get an idea what Nikon is aiming for with this, we will have wait at least for Mk3 and a few truly ground up designed lenses ... It'll take 3-5 years though.

Nah, all of that can be corrected in firmware, maybe even upon release, or soon after. Look at what Fujifilm does with its software updates. There's a reason they are showing these to the reviewers, they want feedback from a wide variety of professionals.
And I mean, they could perfectly imitate the DSLR focusing interface on this camera, on software, just like the current interface is all software.

In reply to:

whawha: It’s a solid choice of lenses, however for me it sorely lacks the presence of a smaller, more compact street photography oriented prime such as a 35mm f2 or 28mm f2.8.

If you are into street photography with compact primes, then you need to check out Fuji, because they have exactly equivalents to those lenses, with great image quality, good autofocus, that you can mount on high-end cameras that are smaller than this new Nikon.

JerryWilliam: Unique appearance, D850/G9 grip, a6300 body, D610 top dial, GFX-50s mount, and a viewfinder like no other (close approximates an EOS M50); kind of goofy looking actually, must be a "hybrid" camera.

Actually, the design is very obviously inspired on the Nikon F5, their previous revolutionary pro camera.

The Fat Fish: I really like what Fuji is doing. Please release a bayer sensor version of the X-T2!

Capture One offers excellent results with Fuji X-Trans, and has none of the mandatory subscription nonsense. The tools are also better imo, and you can make a custom tool tab that has all the basics from Lightroom for familiarity.
Hopefully I'll soon be moving from Canon 7D to Fuji, and with that to Capture One as well.

What I want from a Canon high-end mirrorless is the grip of current Canon DSLRs. Shrink everything else using the EF-M mount to make them much thinner, with a smaller viewfinder hump (That could be close in shape to that of old EOS-1 cameras for nostalgia)
Also, give them tilt screen.
And now that optical viewfinder is no problem, there can be 5D AND 7D replacement, same everything with just different sensors. Keep the LP-E6 battery and bundle in a sturdy adapter.
With this (Same grip, controls and battery, but very shrinked size) many pros and advanced amateurs currently using Canon DSLRs would simply upgrade to the new cameras.

Keith Williamson: To be honest, if I was an XT2 owner, I'd be finding as many good reasons as I could to avoid buying the new flagship XH1. Some say they'll wait and see what the XT3 brings. I can't see it being anything like the XH1, why would it be?

I read people saying that IBIS isn't important to them - really! I wonder if the improved AF tracking and sensitivity holds no appeal to them as well.

Before we have even a full test report and cameras in hand to compare, they are saying it is too big, too heavy - too everything. Come on folks, it may not be the camera for you but don't tear it to pieces before you've even seen it in the flesh.

The X-T3 will have the same body size as the X-T2 but with a better sensor, more megapixels, larger AF area, the shutter improvements, full width phase autofocus, etc.
And, as for Sony offering more for the money... It may be full frame, but Fujifilm is proving with its lenses that APS-C is perfectly valid, and they have an amazing selection of high quality, affordable lenses for all uses.

For the X-H1, it's a shame they didn't choose to add a bigger battery though.
