Still poor jpeg skin tones for Panasonic

It is very attention grabbing, to see R2D2 in the wedding. It'd be better if the light came from different angles, different parts of a little ping pong sized light source, shooting light up, sideways, etc. Or a tennis ball half. I find it disorienting. Pictures are gonna show perplexed expressions form the subjects like "whaaaaaa?"

I feel that even in sunny days, the shadows are too deep. Too dark.

People forget how tiny the X-A5 line is, it is the size of the X70. It is way smaller than X-E3, than X100F, than X-T20. And with a 27mm 2.8 tiny pancake, it is the smallest camera Fuji has by far. It is jacket portable. Even pants portable with large pockets.

On article Apple iPhone X review (379 comments in total)

Time Magazine wrote that I told Apple to come up with a smartphone and to call it the iPhone and that Apple followed my advice two years later!

Google ‘time magazine apple must’

My forum name was cortland, the second person mentioned, right after bill gates.

Interestingly, the response to my suggestion was negative, as shown in the forum, and nobody in that forum thought the idea had merit.

Do you think I deserve that honor?

silentstorm: Oh gosh... 4K in 15fps???

Why not just push it to 4K 25fps & make this new model a more complete & enticing for potential customers to have a better reason to buy?

Is Fuji really thinking they are ahead of Canon with half bake 4K 15fps?

I use my iPhone for video. I do not feel like working with gigabyte sized files clogging up my disk. The phone does its thing, compressing files and keeping them in a simple menu system.

QuikFrame: Seems like a great first camera despite the lack of viewfinder. It also seems like it would be solid as a vlogging setup. I like the multi focus image stacking.

Most Fujis have viewfinders. They are also larger.

Darkerlight: The fake bokeh looks okay But I cannot stand the skin colours of the iPhone. Maybe the amoled display(srgb) of my tablet is exegerating this flaw, but it looks like the guy has a sunburn.

I think the real advantage of cameras is the zoom. If you are at a party with low light you can adjust to a shot with two people, 5, 20. Games, sports. A flash that works.

In fact an ad should praise the iPhone X and then explain the benefits of a real camera. Millions are now new photographers, who now find a new hobby they never knew about.

apple sold 1 billion iPhones, if 1% buy a camera, that’d be 1 million cameras sold.

Why use this contraption when you can get a proper wheel chair with extra table hookup for your lenses and soft drinks?

"Low light, high ISO image quality lags behind peers"

Is the 100 not as good as the 5 or the 6? Or the same in this regard?

Camera manufacturers are actually sitting on a gold mine: never before did 1 billion new people get a camera (through the cellphone cameras). Camera manufacturers should run an educational drive explaining the benefits a little CellPhone cannot provide.

MikeFairbanks: I can't imagine that this camera is selling well. It's almost twice the price it should be. I would pay 600-700 maybe (maybe).

For 1300 you can get a brand new 6D body.

the Nikon Coolpix a failed because Nikon wanted to either protect its other cameras or just skim the market. The GR followed it at half price. Nikon never adjusted.

In reply to:

Al wants a bagel: I actually bought this camera as a replacement for my now defunct GR. just wanted to try something different. And I must say, the lens is definitely soft, though it does still render nicely. But shooting at night with this lens is fefinitely a challenge. Because of the softness, you really have to dial back the exposure significantly to keep light sources from blooming too much. But it is still capable of nice pictures definitely, though it definitely lags behind my old GR in many othe respects also.

I will keep it anyway, the zoom is quite a useful feature to have. But I think I may eventually opt to go back to a GRII.

GR loved camera in all reviews. However skin tones, jpegs are not good people look grey, as mentioned in several reviews. Canon is better.
