for just a few hundred dollars anyone can own 'one hell of a camera' these days. no joke the cheapest shittiest DSLR/mirrorless you can get today is probably far superior in image quality performance to the best most expensive digital cam from even probably 8 years ago. you could go back in time with one of these $350 joke cameras that people love to poo-poo on these forums and wipe the butt of the most snobbiest gear jerk cruising forums with his ultra quality $5000 camera

cosinaphile: further you would think someone at fuji would stop bragging about skin smoothing processing considering all the negative press over waxy skin tones

proofread those press releases guys

detail-hoarders aren't their target audience esp. with this camera.

bizarre that a random battery/supercap tech announcement would make it to dpreview.. these things are always coming out, and the real world application is always years away.. i mean i understand this is just a website, people can choose what articles they want, but this won't even come close to affecting photography for years (if it is even a technological development that actually clears a major hurdle for commercialization)

Ayoh: 16GB RAM limit cripples so many engineering software tools, but then again most don't support Mac anyway. But then this overprices product is not for serious work anyway but for "creative design". Meh

well you were arguing that engineers in practice make the world a beautiful and functional place, not just functional. functional details are just that, details, and are meaningless without a design for the overall use of the product. do you really think apple's design is meaningless pretension? do you think the success of the ipod/itunes ecosystem is merely an arrangement of technical details solved by engineers?

User3787089555: What I need to buy if I change to new MacBook Pro...

BreakSafe Magnetic USB-C Power Cable $40
Sandisk USB-C SD card reader $50
Standard USB adapter $19 each
(Preferred to have 4 for my CF reader, XQD reader, iPhone cable and external hard drive(s).)
USB-C Ethernet adapter (some hotel only provide free wired connection) $35
USB-C Thunderbolt 2 adapter $50 (also work with the mini-displayport to VGA/DVI/HDMI adapters)
Since old models have HDMI built in, I need an additional mini-displayport to HDMI adapter (there is no USB-C to HDMI adapter available in online apple store) $35

So the users must pay on adapters to use a slimmer MacBook pro is...$286!

preventing your computer from updating is a privilege that only rich and privileged users should have. I'm glad microsoft takes away the average user's control over their computer. it makes happy to know that more people will suffer from unsolicited brick renderment of their PCs

Daniel L: i was ready to dump $5k on a pro Mac despite just spend over $3k on a useless, overheated MBP last year. A hopeful Mac pro? or just an iMac ? but none of that happened. It's another thiner and more overheat prone MBP. Worst? Need more dongles, dongles, dongles, dongles!

Macs are dead.

dongles are in now

Photo Pete: Apple haven't been innovative for years. What they have done well is take innovation from other companies, refine it and place it in well designed form factors with a premium price to make it desirable. They have been excellent at plundering the right innovation at the right time to predict and define the market. They have been excellent at keeping things simple for the user.

These macbooks appear to do none of that apart from being sold at a premium price and perhaps being of premium build quality. They appear to be tinkering with a traditional product whilst ignoring the innovations, such as touchscreens and flexible form factors, that are maturing and becoming standardised by their competitors.

Makes me wonder if some of the decisions have been made to protect sales of their ipad pro line rather than to make the best laptops.

Abandoning of commonly used ports and in-built media compatibility with each new release is annoying. These are meant to be mobile devices which make life on the road more convenient. Needing multiple external peripherals and adapter cables misses the concept of making things simple for the user.

A disappointing release from Apple IMHO.

i like how they make anybody owning traditional USB devices to have to start a new collection of USB memory sticks, wireless USB mice, USB harddrives, USB card readers, USB keyboards, USB cameras, etc.. they're all junk people get with the times USB C.0 is in! Apple are the real innovators of economic stimulation

they even force people to buy USB C.0 SD card reader lol no more card reader for you didn't u get the memo everything is cloud and AI now

In reply to:

PJBC: "The downside is that you can't quickly start recording a video when something worth capturing occurs. Presumably Fujifilm felt that eight customizable buttons was enough."
This would be true, if it were possible to assign Movie Recording to a Fn button. But it's not possible, since Movie isn't one of the options. Grrr!

what i'm saying is that because the x-t2 has a hardware dial for mode, it doesn't allow button press record to avoid design conflicts.

the x-pro2 doesn't have a hardware mode switch so the issue is completely irrelevant.

i guess they don't want to introduce the possibility for conflict between dial mode and actual camera mode on the xt2. one of the drawbacks of making 'hardcoded' designs.. either restrict the flexibility of the interface to respect the abstraction of a hardware mode dial or allow a contradiction in interface logical design which can be interpreted as a flaw or point of confusion. hard to win em all

PPierre: Nice camera from what I've seen so far, but the price is just crazy high. For pure IQ, I'd take an A7II. For fast AF, a D500 is great, and an A6500 could also do the job I guess, though again, no APS-C new lens for 3 years makes it a bit less competitive. I hope they'll announce some XE 3 soon, with this sensor, but with Bayer matrix, and a bit less expensive. Of course, if it could come with IBIS...

fuji is for people who value style and feeling over absolute performance. it's never going to win in a numbers game only in an appeal to personal values

In reply to:

Pierre Racine: $2 000 (CAN) for what? A camera whose lenses are VERY expensive, most of them without OIS, no internal IBIS so no handheld video, AF probably not very good in low light, external rubber that will probably peels off like on XT1, 10 minutes videos, pfff... Yes it's nice but not on par with EM1 II which gives identical results except for neurotic pixel peepers and has a ton more functionalities and more efficient ergonomics.

lol i'm a fuji user and a apple wannabe user they make nice stuff i wish i had bought into apple a long time ago but alas i am a gamer and a former apple hater. we are all doomed indeed if people like me populate the earth. fuji cameras are fun

just adding to the noise here at 1 more post in 1800+ it's only 0.55% more noise factor to the din of internet rabblery but is that in full frame equivalency?
