The thing that bugs me about many of these "Lightroom-wannabes" is that they rely upon icons instead of words. An icon is a picture and if a picture is worth 10,000 words, then -which one- of those 10,000 words does that picture represent? Why not just provide the words for the functions and sub-functions?

Luminar 2018 on Windows 10 doesn't seem to have a "Save" command. (I double-checked and I'm not hallucinating.) Export...yes, So you can't save a ".luminar" file and, therefore, no history nor embedding of the RAW file. The Mac version has no such problem. I reported it to Skylum Tech Support.

The unit is -unrepairable-.

Short synopsis from the end of the teardown:
- This laptop is not meant to be opened or repaired; you can’t get inside without inflicting a lot of damage.
- The CPU, RAM, and onboard storage are soldered to the motherboard, making upgrades a no-go.
- The headphone jack, while modular, can only be accessed by removing the heat sink, fan, display, and motherboard.
- The battery is difficult and dangerous to replace, giving the device a limited lifespan.

No; I'm not a Mac fanbois. My latest machine is an Asus ROG laptop and I own both Macs and PCs (and actually like Windows 10). This Surface, however, is a POS.

No built-in EVF? Non-starter for me (on any camera other than my cellphone).

Fuji XS-1 but sized like the Fuji S9100. AA batteries.

Nishi Drew: What XF1 color did dpreview vote on?

My S9100 is still my favorite Fuji followed by my S100FS. Will probably get the XS-1 once the price drops. One thing I don't understand, however, is how a camera without a viewfinder is usable. Maybe my arms are too short. :D

On article Fujifilm releases X-S1 premium EXR 26X superzoom (383 comments in total)

I own both the S9100 and the S100fs. Both are excellent, IMHO, for the use I intended. The only things I didn't like about the S100fs were the proprietary battery (I prefer AAs - who doesn't?) and the fact that the histogram can't be set to stay on without depressing the +/- button. Otherwise, I'm quite happy. I skipped the HS10/20 units as I didn't feel there was enough improvement to warrant another purchase at that time. I'll wait for the X-S1 to come down in price a bit (and be thoroughly debugged by the early adopters). Too bad about the continued use of proprietary batteries in the X-S1.
