gdabx: I was at yellowstone for the long weekend. Really disappointed at the scenery and wildlife I see. There are just too many people around them. Everytime a grizzle(no cubs) is sighted, there are at least 20 people stopping their car and a huge traffic congestion will follow. I was at Banff and area for 2 weeks before I got down to Yellowstone. Crowded park as well becuase Victoria Day weekend. However, there were not a lot of people stopping for bears. Maybe because there were more of bears or something different about Canadians.
However, I could say the best bear shot I got was from bear 399 at Teton. She was standing up on two foot and looking at the huge crowd(hundreds) around her. The snow covered mountain as background is just perfect.

People never fail to see the irony in complaining about crowds. Obviously they aren't contributing to the crowd themselves, it is everyone else....

steelhead3: Although I don't shoot with m4/3, all the comments that FF is the way to go really misses the point that these smaller formats have a place. Though the sensor may be a little dated now, it allows for nice small lenses.

So if it is not a stacked BSI sensor, it is "dated"? I guess by your definition, everything but the A9 and the latest Sony 1" cameras used dated sensors?

NOWHITELENS: I certainly understand the advantage of very light camera and lenses, but I do not mind "slugging" heavier equipment around for higher quality pictures and/or the possibility to crop when necessary (which is quite often the case with wildlife).

D850 46MP cropped to 20MP is only about 1.5x digital zoom.

How do you conclude that this new 20MP m4/3 sensor is "dated"?

You'd need an 80MP FF sensor and very sharp lenses to be able to crop your way into shots that this camera can get without cropping.

PhozoKozmos: no point offering a film camera

even for folks unfamiliar with digital images (non-prints)
they can still go to a local print shop
and get their digital camera images printed the old way on paper
(glossy or matt)
(borderless or bordered)
especially if they have no computer nor printer
or avoid portable digital mini-printers
(and don't want to buy "instant photo paper" for their "instant camera")

just shoot, and print
(no inbetween "stuff" to "refill" their cameras; no "plastic recyclables", no "disposable one use batteries")

Extremely overpriced disposable cameras actually sell very well at key tourist destinations to people who have dead batteries in their digital camera.

sirkhann: Some people still like XTrans. Don't be hard on them. Some believe Earth is flat either.

Some people like Acros and some people hate puppies.

JimSocks: i think the big problem here will be AF. i have the x-a5, it af ok with the kit zooms. but the other lenses i have, not so much. thats why i was hoping for xpro processor because you can at least improve cdaf af with a faster processor. use the kaizen thing they do, but it looks like they stuck the old processor from the xtrans 2 days.

It would make sense to use the cheapest hardware in their cheapest body, don't you think?

Sammy the Seal: Thanks Fujifilm, I just bought an X-A5 and it's too late to return it now. I would have bought this instead. In fact, I'll bet no one will buy the X-A5 now so you may as well just discontinue it--two months after its release.

The X-A series seemed really popular with young women in Japan when I was there last month. They kind of stood out due to the colorful design. Just because you personally prefer a viewfinder, doesn't mean that there is no market for the X-A

Alexis D: $600! i think Fuji has done an A7 III, releasing this "basic" model and wiping the floor.
Yeah.

Some might call the lack of IBIS and 15fps video as extremely basic with no quotation marks needed.

The 15-45 is the widest kit lens on the market. May even replace a UWA for some people. 22.5-67.5mm equivalent.

mrpuggy: Too little too late fuji. Still have may xe1 and four fujinon lens. x1h over priced, this is underwelming. Sony a7 iii here I come

So your next best alternative to a $600 entry level camera announcement is to buy a $2000 one?

It is definitely just a matter of where you stand. But wide angles encourage you to get close so your subject isn't lost in the frame. And telephotos force you to stand back or your subject won't fit. So in their own way, the lenses create certain perspectives.

In reply to:

ventur: LG dual lens aproach is much better, i prefer an ultra wide angular like in the lg G6 or V30, i found it more usefull...

Standard zooms are more popular than Ultrawides for a reason. You can say which you prefer, but UWA is definitely not better in general terms.

sportyaccordy: Not clear in the video, but it would be cool if they could use one camera for front and rear shooting. I'd also be much more comfortable with a sturdier and manual pop up mechanism, though that would be hard to do with 1 camera facing front or back.

I am imagining a little thumb slider that also automatically activates the camera app. Just flip open and shoot.

anticipation_of: That thing looks fragile as hell. Pass.

Seems like it would really easy to activate in a pocket and then have the motor jam and break.

chrisno: this is the most innovative design for years
a much better design than the notch iPhone X and face detections
the popup camera is also great for privacy

Tommi K1: It is sad that more and more the hiqh quality printing is dying, as there is no digital that has same impact and joyfulness as good print is.

But then again how many enjoy from reading magazines? Storing them, then carrying eventually to trash bin?

Especially when todays "journalists" write empty articles....

I want to like magazines, But I just don't like paying $6 for last months articles.

JimKasson: I don't even want to think about the rebuild time for 5+1 RAID 5 with 12 TB disks, and the concomitant probability of another disk failure during the rebuild.

2 hot spares doesn't help. If you lose a second disk on a RAID 5 before it is rebuilt, all data is gone forever. I would choose zero hot spares. Ensure the data is backed up first, and manually replace the disk and start the rebuild.
