i like the results of rawtherapee wavelet sharpening on my fuji xtrans raw conversions. less halo-ing and grit than when I use r-l deconvolution while still yielding extreme levels of detail

On article F is for '4th': Hands-on with Fujifilm X100F (422 comments in total)

tape up the diopter adjustment wheel folks if you get one of these x100 series cameras.. bunch of dust in the OVF is probably my biggest gripe with my x100s

Photomonkey: It seems that DPR is a great place to lose perspective.

"It is not MF!!"
Until very recently, the vast bulk of sensors for the classic MF cameras were all smaller than 645 film(which itself was frequently sneered at by 6x6 and 6x7 users).

"Way too much money" The Nikon D5 $6500 the Canon 1Dxmk2 is $6000. Premium lenses in both their lines sell for $1500 and up. Fuji, Pentax, Canon and Nikon are very cognizant of who is buying those cameras and they know the bulk are amateurs.

They also know that the bulk of amateurs shoot landscapes (many with cats) or scenes not requiring extreme lenses. They also know that pros using or aspiring to MF are, for the most part, not looking for extreme lenses.

Thus the stars align for the GFX and the 645z and X1-D.
While many will squawk at the price/features and make comparisons to other cameras that buttress their position, Fuji and Hasselblad will work furiously to meet demand and reduce the waiting lists.

hey bro my camera investment is a reflection my being nobody better dare question my selfrationalization

veliev: I have always loved the X100 cameras, but they don't make much practical sense knowing that an X-T10 and the X-T20 with the 27mm lens ads up to about the same package.
And when the body ages, you don't have to throw the lens away with it.

ovf + 3 stop builtin ndf + high speed shutter sync + (virtually) silent shutter are practical things that perhaps aren't worth $1300 but aren't substitutable

mirage trio just hit advertising gold for a simple product that might possibly be construed as nothing more than a (very) cheap gimmick. congrats mirage trio!

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
