zakk9: "Apple claims it'll let you edit three 4K video streams at the same time." Yeah, right and 128GB of memory that can't be expanded plus no way to connect any professional device, not even a DSLR.

Apple has launched yet another selfie device.

Folks
Buy the tool that is right for the job. iPad with camera connection kit or if you need more storage/connection - get an Apple laptop. But you cannot make every product have every connection - Thunderbolt on iPad?

Cheng Bao: (Steve Jobs: It's like we said on the iPad, if you see a stylus, they blew it. In multitasking, if you see a task manager... they blew it. Users shouldn't ever have to think about it.

Newton did not 'need' a stylus. you could use anything, including your finger nails to operate it. Not elegant - but you could :-)

Francis Carver: "New Apple Pencil?" Please, this is gross. Oh, and BTW -- Wacom has been making stuff like this for a dozen years or so now. Apple is always the last to the table with everything -- yet they claim to be innovators, instead of knock-off artists.

You are forgetting Newton - from about 20 years ago...

Guys

Enjoyed the Review/Preview
But one item I found curious.
This is a commercial web site, reviewing a named product.
So, why, in the interview at the end was there a most distracting piece of black tape over the logo of the laptop (A MacBook I presume) used to present the images?

The Squire: What? No 4K? At that price!?

To clarify - do you mean 'Two-Stage' shutter button as in 'real' camera?

Volume up/down as well as earpiece volume controls can be used as shutter release.
Not 'Dedicated' - but, dedicated enough for me :-)

Brian OReilly: Pardon?
"Only Supports D7000 and later DSLR"

This is a really underhand way of saying that
According to the timeline on this page:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Template:Nikon_DSLR_cameras

That means it does not support:
D3
D300
D200
All D2 variants

This is really poor
So - to process Nikon NEF files with Nikon Capture NX2 I will need to keep 2 different versions of the SW on a machine
Same applies with Nikon Camera Control Pro2

But, I do not believe you can have 2 different versions of the SW on the same machine - so you need to have 2 different startup disks.

So much for using Nikon products and the longevity of the NEF format moving into the future
Do we need to keep legacy hardware and operating systems and Nikon SW so we can access our images?

Sorry for the rant - but this is really disappointing
Brian

In which case - I stand corrected :-)

In reply to:

Frank_NZ: I thought this idea was already being developed through crowdfunding. Maybe its the same individuals. If not there could be one helluva legal battle coming up.

Pardon?
Can you elaborate perhaps with an example?

Ah Ha...
And owners of CS6?

Fellow X100 users

If you are as happy as I ma that Fuji have released new firmware for an 'obsolete' camera - then let them know. Perhaps, positive feedback might encourage Fuji to continue to offer such excellent service on other models in the future.
Amazingly - they actually have a web page where you can contact them at head office in Japan.
I suggest we all do so, in order that they know that their excellent customer care is appreciated.
