villagranvicent: I blink I don't know how times a minute, how come the camera could differentiate between a natural blink to a photo-taking blink?

Natural blink is much much faster than wink. I am sure there is a threshold setting

Peiasdf: There is no way to proof if Huawei is doing what they said they are doing. All the image could just be from the color sensor with the monochrome info throw out. Maybe someone can put filter on individual lenses and figure out if info from both cameras are really combined.

Thanks MauriceK

The reason for my question is because Huawei said the monochrome sensor is 2/3 more sensitive than a normal sensor. If that's the case, 1 + 1 2/3 = 2 2/3 meaning this camera have nearly 3 times the light capturing ability of regular 1/2.5, 1/2.3 sensor and less noise due to stacking. It doesn't seem like the case.

marc petzold: When would smartphone manufactors build-in at least an 1/1.7" sensor...size does matter...you can't overcome laws of physics with newer processing algorithms and faster cpus...Sony for instance decided it right back into 2012 with their very first RX100 iteration - the 1" sensor is so much better than a usual 1/1.7" which all other prosumers and highend compacts have had back at this day...and now smartphones...12.16..20 or more MP...it doesn't matter...the sensor size is still a mess, JPEGs in 1:1 100% mode look really mushy & like watercolors....they'd never compete with digicams if they wouldn't get a better, bigger sensor for better light gathering ability, low light performance and image quality after all....i am tired of all these smartphone cameras...it's been 2016 - and still no RX100 IQ into a smartphone besides the CM1 Lumix from Panasonic.

Manufactors should do it right that way - bring it on, or just fade away. The typical smartphone cam can never compete with an 1" sensor

Rumor is Samsung will put a 1/1.7" sensor in the next generation of flagships while Apple will go the array route to add sensor size.

In reply to:

Reactive: That is so obviously a 3D render that has been dropped into the bridge image, what was the point of the exercise? The bridge is blurred but the B on each wheel hub is pin sharp and the right way up. The hideous 2-tone Ford Cortina paint job also looks fake, as does the hard shadow around the car.

I thought the rotating hub thing is RR and not Bentley. Did Bentley copied RR?

In reply to:

Angrymagpie: This is not a troll question, but for those who are a bit fed up with the number of hours they spend in Lightroom and would rather shoot JPEG for their casual photography (and want a hipster look for their camera), X-Pro 2 would perhaps be the best camera? (Well there's X100T for the more budget-minded, but the point of the question is really about whether if Fujifilm has the "objectively best" JPEG engine). The JPEG engine of something like the new PEN wouldn't be as good right?

I have X-E1, GX7 and G7 X. The Canon has the best color while Panasonic the worst. It is all subjective of course but I have find I like Canon's color most of the time during blind testing even though I prefer Nikon and SONY cameras.

PanchoVilla: These Fuji cameras are pretty toys, but I wouldn't give up my D500 for serious photography!

Those Fuji produce great color, just don't shoot RAW or expect fast AF.

Aleph Naught: The X-Pro2 does not have the Fujifilm brand or the camera model emblazoned on the front of the camera, making it less obtrusive for street photography. Compare the two cameras in the side-by-side image, #1 in the slide show.

Street photography LOL. More B&W photos of cats at shop's doorway.

In reply to:

shooter mclens: Honestly, i'm not sure why the XP2 is priced higher than the XT2. The latter is a much more well-rounded camera, while the XP2 only has one trick up its sleeve, the hybrid VF, which isnt so great with zooms and longer lenses.

It looks like a Leica and you can put a leather half-case on it.

In reply to:

Peiasdf: X-Pro is the poser camera for those that wants to look like they are carrying a film Leica but don't know how to MF and develop film. Most X-Pro are just fashion accessory and never used. The photographers I know that actually do street photography use X100, RX100 or just their phone.

X-T is actually the flagship of the lineup and for those that actually intend to take photos. X-E is the budget X-T.

X-E2 is the budget X-T1 while X-T10 is the budget X-T1 with a grip. Go to camera comparison and put all three cameras side-by-side and see how close they are. X-Pro is a category on its own because of the "rangefinder".

In reply to:

PRohmer: I was looking forward to these two, seriously considering to switch from Micro Four Thirds. But I am not convinced at all. X-pro2 does not make any sense to me other then design perhaps. I wouldn't call it a flagship either. I need to see more images, but what I've seen so far on Flicker does not encourage, I am yet to see images with natural colors and realistic contrast.

My 3 regular cameras are X-E1, Pana GX7 and Canon G7 X. Canon have the best color especially skin tone. Panasonic is a joy to use for its speed, touch screen, sensible UI. X-E1 is the dog of the group for its poor X-trans color, slow AF and UI and poor ergonomics.

X-T2 undoubtedly fixed many X-Pro 1 and X-E1 problems but the competition have moved on already to offer even better AF and IBIS. Fuji is still cheating on ISO number as far as I can tell so when comparing image, select 2/3 of a stop lower ISO on non-Fuji to get a fair comparison.

Paul Petersen: I am surprised Fuji has not been competing in the 1" premium compact market. That used to be a strong area for them.
Pete

Fuji haven't figure out how to make a 1" sensor camera that's bigger and more expensive than those already on the market without being more expensive than X100

In reply to:

zakaria: Good writing and thoughts.
I think fuji will catch Hasselblad nearly. You got a quick conclusion that the xt2 is excellent camera!
Does that mean that it will be rewarded the DP gold award.

No. Gold usually go to camera with breakout features: crazy good ISO, 5-axis IBIS, great video, etc. X-T2 got nothing that isn't already on the market and in fact will likely fall short in AF, high ISO and video.

Truebar: If you want to satisfy everybody, then please put image stabilisation into the camera body. Thanks in advance.

And GPS and touchscreen. Pentax got everything besides touchscreen and is about the same price with a much bigger sensor and complicated mirror system.

steelhead3: I am curious to see this compared to the CIA drone camera which uses hundreds of cell phone cameras stitched together.

This flies at lower altitude so might actually have better resolution.

If Canon charges less this phone would have Canon branding.

People keep forgetting the sensor in smartphones are the same size as P&S cameras', is behind a bright prime lens and is generations ahead of big sensor. It still won't be better than a m4/3, APS-C or FF but it is way better than what we get from P&S a few years ago
