It does the trick if you want a regular one-shot-next-to-each-other panorama. I use the Gigapan Pro and it does not only move horizontal, but vertical as well. The tracking mode on the panocatcher looks good though. And it's a LOT smaller than the Gigapan Pro..!

JEROME NOLAS: Hihg end camera with Bayer sensor, that's what I am waiting for...

Plenty of choice. What about a Canon 5D. It's been out a couple of years now, what are you waiting for?

I like it. And, unless it is total crap, I will buy it.

peckinpah: Good to see Fuji is still updating the X-Pro1. But why no Classic Chrome for us?

Aha. That makes sense. Thanks.

1. I'm in Europe, DPreview is probably asleep now. They'll fix it.

Duncan Dimanche: You know the fuji sensors are nice in low light but they are never sharp. Even the RAWs are being stripped off noise in order to create an illusion of amazing high ISO performance... it does remind me of Sony's JPGs

It would be nice if those samples shot would be in RAW...
But I know that there is little difference in Fuji's raw and JPGs...

I'm trying to like Fuji but I really can't...just look at that girl's portrait... there seems to be not much details....

Cheers and thanks for posting those

Have you used, for instance, a X-Pro1 yourself? How are Fuji sensors never sharp?
