  • White Theme looks prettier and maybe good for marketing, but Dark Theme is easier on my eyes, saves my laptop's battery. Also, it sort of symbolically represents the "Dark Room" tradition of...

  • Commented on article Hands-on with the Fujifilm X70

    If you want being small, there is always Sony. In fact, I already have Sony A5300, which is cheaper, smaller and better than Fuji X70. Try Sony A5300. You'll find that Fuji X70 is nowhere. Just...

  • Commented on article Fujifilm X70 Review

    Not only X100T is considerably bigger (at least for me), the WCL makes it even ridiculous. That is probably, for the people who takes 35mm most of the time (and once in a while you attach WCL -...

    That's 35mm. Not wide enough for general purpose. And a little too big. Make it 28mm F2 (F1.8 would be great though) and a little bit smaller (I think that they can do that, having seen how Sony...

    Good try, Fuji. But still a complete lackluster.
    I hope that the next version is like "mini" Leica Q,
    which means, built-in view finder and at least F2.0 lens.
    I wouldn't mind the size being...

  • I don't need ( actually I don't want) 20 Mega pixels for the pictures I take using smartphones. It's just a waste of memory space, battery, transfer time, and time to process 20M. 12M is very...

  • If you make the copy, it's in violation. Of course, you can design your own, but it will probably go through trial and error, which will eventually costs you more money and time. That is why we...

  • That is why I suggested the name of "Semi-Manual" mode ;-) BTW, in Pentax, can you use Exposure Compensation in TAv ?

  • I think that this should be a separate, "Semi Manual" mode, in which the concept of "ISO" does not exist. You just adjust aperture and shutter speed manually, and the camera will adjust the rest...

  • Commented on article Hands-on with the Fujifilm X70

    Yes, without wasting $700 on this one. But if I would spend $700, definitely not on this. This article made sure that I shouldn't choose it. Thanks.

  • Commented on article Hands-on with the Fujifilm X70

    It should have been at least F2. Or better F1.8. With F2.8 ... I mean... You don't want to pay this amount of money. I'd rather use iPhone 6+.

  • Would it transfer, for example, from iphone to ipad ?

  • Combined with Lenses and adaptors the mirrorless cameras have only very negligible advantage sacrificing other important factors. It is like comparing the two gun systems - one with 1 meter 30...

  • I will remind you what I wanted to post and not this completely idiotic discretion - you really love to twist the conversation into a mud fight and I have no time for that - HERE GOES AGAIN MY ONLY...

  • OK. I will remove the flash from my iPhone and it is going to be a "pro" camera gear. The fact is, Carlos, from the discussion so far, I don't trust your professionalism. Like I said, I trust many...

  • Maybe you don't know how to find photos of cats taken using iPhone 4. Here we go... https://www.flickr.com/search/?text=iphone4%20cats Again, don't blame the camera, Carlos. There are so many...

  • Yes, I do have many pictures of cats, dogs, and other animals taken with my smartphones, which were wonderful. I could post them just for you, but that is not necessary. Go to flikr and you will...

  • From your comments, it is apparent that none of you two have ever used DSLR/GPS apps that interacts with DSLRs. Now, just GPS part - with smartphones, you can always have GPS data (as long as you...

  • Among the pictures taken with my smartphones, the ones from my old iPhone 4 were the best. Later, I moved up to Samsung Note 2 and now iPhone 6 Plus, but the picture qualities didn't improve at...

  • That argument is not mine. It's Carlos. Read what he wrote. Tom Goodman who is featured in dpreview today said that he is using Nikon D750 which is "unprofessional" according to you just because it...
