On article Fujifilm X-Pro3 pre-production sample gallery (158 comments in total)

The problem with this gallery is that Velvia was used way too often. That film simulation is Fuji's ABSOLUTE WORST in my opinion. If I want strong colours and contrast I use Astia and increase saturation (+2). With that said I love the new Classic Negative simulation.

Astia, Classic Chrome, Eterna (for video) and Acros (for b/w) are fantastic....and now the new Classic Negative.

I have used Nikon, Canon, Pentax, Panasonic and Olympus. Fujifilm is the only camera brand I have used where I don't feel bad using SOOC jpegs (even though I shoot jpeg + raw). However, you need to learn when to use the different simulations and fine tune each of them using the in-camera color/shadow/highlight settings.

I like it! If you want a more mainstream camera from Fuji then get the X-T3, X-T30 or X-H1. I agree that it's not for everyone, but that's the whole point. Every camera brand should have a niche/experimental model.

LarsRost: I guess it's a matter of taste but when the spectators are blurred out the picture loses emotional content. Sure, bokeh is nice but you can get subject separation AND facial expressions in the background if you shoot with a higher f-number.

No, I am not talking about making the background sharp. I am talking about keeping the background somewhat blurry for subject separation but still sharp enough the see some expressions. In other words, blurry smiling/angry faces in the background.

On article Google shares high-resolution Pixel 2 sample photos (170 comments in total)

Google Pixel 2 is no replacement for a DSLR but these photos are still very very good. It's obvious that many people are suffering from the pixel peeping syndrome. The pics look excellent on my 10" pad and also on my 6" phone. I have printed two of the pics (10 x 15cm) and they look great. I am sure they'll look fine on a larger prints as well. Btw, how often do you print A4 or A3....

Valentinian: ok, ok... beautiful lens.... but... in mft we have the 75mm/f1.8 which is at least as good, costs way less and it is smaller and lighter.... and if your budget is tighter, then in mft you can use the Sigma 60mm/f2.8....

The 78mm is far from perfect when it comes to purple fringing and it's also softer wide open and focusing is slow. Still a great lens though.

The pre-burst feature looks very promising. Can't wait to test it.
