Well I know I am running right out and not buying any of it.

On article How water droplets came to life for a Gatorade ad (103 comments in total)

Kind of cool that this was done using a method like this rather than simply through animation. But if I am telling the truth, if it wasn't for this article I would have assumed it was animation and all of this work would have been lost on me. I am glad Dpreview did a write up on it.

On article Sony a9 Full Review: Mirrorless Redefined (2676 comments in total)

"With full frame image quality"? WTH, everyone knows that a pea sized sensor in my phone takes just as good a photo as an FF! LOL.

JohnBaker: I'd love to buy a Fuji camera, but only when they start using good non-X trans sensors, such as those from Sony. Great cameras and lenses, but lousy blurry sensors.

@ecka84 funny how fuji people are almost NEVER over on the Sony, Nikon, or Canon feeds with nothing better to do than to tear down those offerings, but you insecure people from there, especially Sony, have to constantly spend your time bashing those who choose the FUJI. Insecure much???

racin06: High-end mirrorless cameras are here to stay and are not going away. The bottom line is that what Fuji has accomplished with the X Series lineup in a very short 5 years is remarkable. Don't even think that Nikon and Canon haven't taken notice.

I think Nikon showed that they noticed with the Df that came out a few years ago. Unfortunately it was a swing and a miss. I think they missed the point entirely.

WTH are you even talking about. The X-Trans is nothing more than a filter over a SONY sensor that is not the traditional BAYER Pattern. And if you think they are less sharp than the competitors, you need to re-read the data. They are generally compared to sensors with much higher resolution.

Conrad567: Unless your flash sync becomes 1/2000 of a second by mounting a pancake lens on one of these cameras, then no, you can't make a cheaper X100.

Mental midget...go ask your mom for a sandwich. I said you don't know how to use it with a wide angle lens, because YOU said clearly that you don't understand why I would purchase such a camera. Seriously pull your head out of your rear end and look around. There are thousands of photographers who use cameras like the X100 the same way I do. Just because you can't figure out why doesn't negate my reasons, lab partner. Sheesh.

That's not what I said. You don't understand how to use HSS with a wide angle lens. You made that clear in your comment above.

The fact that you feel that you can judge a person's use of a camera makes you arrogant. Just because you can't figure out how to use this camera doesn't mean that the rest of us on this forum are just as incapable. You should try learning a few things before you judge people, otherwise you just seem petty and ignorant. And to be clear, FUJI makes some really good conversion lenses for this camera, that is if you can't seem to find a way to take portraits of families at the beach using a 35mm equivalent. LOL

Just because you can't figure out how to use the 1/2000 flash sync doesn't mean no one else uses it. In fact the only reason I even purchased the X100 was for this feature. It amazes me how much some people "think" they know. Even more amazing is how snarky they are hiding behind their keyboards.

On article Polaroid sold to new owner (94 comments in total)

Seems that most of the film dinosaurs are on the cusp of extinction. With the exception of FujiFilm who had the foresight to start manufacturing everything from copiers, to medical imaging, to digital cameras. Unfortunately even NIKON appears to have misjudged the market and his hurting in a huge way.

gonzalu: After I paid $799 for my RX-100 III , I am NOT paying $30 bucks for a feature that should be included. If it were say, $4.99? Maybe...

You say that if it were 4.99 "maybe"...seems to me that it is a feature that you really couldn't care less about if you wouldn't even spend 4.99. The incentive for developers to create and sell apps is so that they can make a profit. I don't shoot Sony, but if I did, I would spend the money for this app. In fact if they made a decent Tilt Shift lens, I would sell my Canon gear and go Sony just for this app. HINT, HINT!

The cost of this app in comparison with a good set of filters that will create the same image is VERY small. My set of Cokin filters ran over 300 dollars, and I am not sure they work as well as this app will.

SharkManEXR: This lens also does NOT work with anything before the d3300, it may only work with the d3300 with a firmware update but it is not stated on the firmware page as it only lists the 18-55mm AF-P lens.

buyer beware! no idea why Nikon did this.

If you are shooting with something older than a D3300...then it is time to upgrade.

I have to say, the move by SIGMA to up their game has revolutionized the camera lens industry. Tokina, Tamron, Canon, Nikon, Zeiss etc, have had to start looking over their shoulder, and all of them are producing better products in recent years. Although it just feels like SIGMA is always slightly ahead in the game.

photomedium: Ballsy move on Fuji spending all that money to develop whole MF system for such limited market. I am not seeing the numbers here to justify.

You don't see a "mass market" for these kinds of cameras? So what? Is Porsche for the mass market? Ferrari, Lamborghini, Bentley? Even Lexus and Acura will NEVER sell the numbers that Toyota or Honda do. Yet I drive a Lexus and so do a lot of other people; hence the reason that Toyota keeps making them.

What numbers do you see that the rest of us aren't privy to? Do you have some secret access to market research, or are you just talking out of your rear because some people here will believe you?
