On article Feisty upstart: Hands-on with the Fujifilm X-T20 (212 comments in total)
In reply to:

JeffUlti: Ok so you're the first article I read that actually "confirms" what I think. The X-T20 is NOT weather sealed.
Many other sites like FStopper and SLRLounge claim it is weather sealed.
I don't know where they saw that but when I look at the press release, there's no mention of it.
Also, BH, Adorama, etc. do not mention it either.

So who's right? Is it or is it not?

I wouldn't take it to the tropics in monsoon season, but my X-T10 has withstood a very outdoorsy lifestyle indeed. Frozen, soaked, covered in sand and even dropped a few times. Excellent little camera.

EcoR1: Why the grip area is so small? How I'm suppose to hold it ergonomically?

The grip is much larger than the one on my first few cameras, being film ones from the 70's they didn't have one at all. But don't worry the X-T10 has a nice thumb grip as well as the sturdy bit at the front and it's really fine to hold.

HaroldC3: As a long time canon m owner and prospective m5 owner, Fuji just made me take a long hard look at them. The x-t20 is what the m5 needed to be.

I would say the main advantage over the M5 would be the lens range. And the X-Trans sensor gives a unique look.

Seab: What about Europe ?
I working abroad and this is exactly what I was waiting for to upgrade from my X-T1!
Come on, don't let EU wait for too long....

End of Feb in the UK if that's any help to you.

Ah, my new camera has arrived. Packed with all the goodies I need and a touchscreen too. But the best news is that the new sensor doesn't have those weird artifacts in landscapes that often made me wonder if I'd backed a losing horse. Happy if that's not the case as the lenses are excellent and I've already got the leather case which makes handling better too.

Top marks I think.

Good gig photos, and the dog-on-ice shot is excellent.

Thumbs up is a major insult in Israel, as I found out personally....

MrTaikitso: World's two worst sounds:

1. Nails on a blackboard.
2. Bagpipes. (Discovered when a fat Scot accidentally trod on his cat and liked the noise. Hence bagpipes are made from dead cats. You know where they blow right? FakeNews but it's funny eh? I'll tell you how they harvest haggis another day.)

Great camera, awful sample video! Oh my ears!

Bagpipes were actually a Persian instrument, brought back during the crusades. It's a snake charmers pipe and the bag was added so they could march into battle without running out of breath.

It's only the Scots and the Indians that still like them for some reason.....

On article CES 2017: Hands-on with Nikon D5600 (321 comments in total)
In reply to:

endofoto: Nikon, canon and Sony are lagging behind Pentax in every segment of DSLR. Nikon and Sony have serious quality check problems at the construction and dont care about defective units after sale. Canon has poorer sensors and too expensive. I think Pentax has much more specs to offer at the same price and killing these 3 guys.

I tried a Pentax, it was well made and nicely featured but it had noisy autofocus, it was like a retro-80's camera! No sale.

ShreedharHegde: I do not understand the need the for this new camera when D5500 is almost new in the market. It would have been great to see more innovation with new releases as too many new names with same specs create lot of chaos in the camera market.
I do not see much differences in the D5000 series after D5200 except D5500 entered with weather proof body. New designs and sizes of DSLR don't sell out like new design smartphones in the market. It needs more innovation along with design to succeed (Like Apple does with every new iPhone (?))

It's called free advertising, release a new model and it'll get a review whcih everyone sees. Clever eh?

steelhead3: Could use these cameras in "Mad Men" and no would know the difference.

People often see me with my X-T10 and say that it's nice to see people still using film. I point out that it's digital and say I prefer image quality to inconvenience :D

Matewka: The whole part 2. "What technology will you use to shoot my wedding?" should be not mentioned. It's inappropriate. It disrespects the photographer.
Do you ask wedding band what microphone or keyboard they use? Do you ask your shoemaker what twine they use? Do you ask chef in a restaurant what knife they use?

He was a pro and was very successful until the norm at weddings became not hiring someone like him but letting your cousin have a go with his new DSLR. Turned out the cousin had a D4 which left him in the technological shade.

He doesn't believe anyone can make a living out of weddings any more but I think there are a few exceptional talents out there who do well enough.

I disagree. I knew a wedding photographer who used a 10 year old Nikon and only shot J-pegs. His pictures didn't technically measure up to what the wedding guests were using.

When people started to complain about file noise etc I said they had every right to as it's his job to stay up to date with technological trends. If someone turned up at my wedding with an old camera shooting noisy J-pegs I wouldn't be best pleased!

Hugo808: I used to use Contax for weddings, seemed rather good to me - fast, quiet. amazing IQ. Maybe it was me?

Mine stopped working when I dropped it.

But I only got a digicam because slide processing was getting unreliable, nothing worse than getting your velvia back looking all patchy.
