berrald: And still no iPad version…

Not sure what you mean. I've had the app on my iPad for years.

The Davinator: And yet they can't figure out "landscape."

Mobile apps are both vertical and horizontal. I never see people trying to watch a youtube video in vertical...they switch to horizontal so the picture is larger. Your "too old" jibe fell flat...you're just too ignorant.

jaywalles: NO it is not 1.7x bigger than "full frame". It is 1.7x bigger "than 25mm" as said by Fuji. This is 1.7x bigger than APSc not than "full frame".

The sensor covers about 1450 sq/mm. FF is 864 sq/mm. That is 1.68x. So yes, 1.7x bigger than FF

norman shearer: No x-trans maybe because that filter Array limits your choice in pp software? Or is it because x-trans is just a marketing gimmick?

Doesn't limit your choice at all....only Lightroom is an issue. Use any one of dozens of other packages and the quality of X-Trans shines. Seems it is you who have bought into the Adobe gimmick that is trapped.

J A C S: Another camera that none of the posters here will own, myself included.

There's always a lower quality Canon camera with a puny FF sensor that can be bought on the cheap ;-)

Fujica: So Leica has seen the gigantic success of the Fujilm Instax camera.

Pretty funny - Fujifilm mimics the Leica look with its x-series now Leica hits back with their own rebranded Instax. The irony.

If anyone should know about bankruptcy..it'd be you. Talk about still missing the point.

I suggest you learn how to read. Film sales in 2000 have nothing to do with this topic. Someone stated Fuji was the only one left...which I corrected. You then pounced talking about films sale reductions since 2000....which has nothing to do with anything here. Kodak Alaris is still the largest film company...exactly as I said it was. Kodak makes and sells more film than everyone...exactly as I said they do. Films sales have increased the last few years...exactly as I said. Kodak Alaris is profitable...more so each year as film sales increase...exactly as I said they do. You seems fixated on reduced sales from 2000....which was irrelevant to my post and nothing more than a red herring on your part. Film production is increasing...profits are up...many campanies making film...with more coming on line. I know the industry very well thanks...I've been deeply involved in it for over 25 years on a professional level...not as some ignorant webexpert like yourself.

I use film professionally for wedding and portraiture in 35 and MF. I use 4x5 for landscape projects. My personal projects for street and documentary work in Hong Kong and Japan have been primarily shot in 110 film and 35. Film sales have increased world wide the last 4 years and remain a multi billion dollar industry. Movie filmstock production has doubled the last two years as many directors are going back to using film. It appears your knowledge of the subject is very limited...you should read up on it as those of us who have know exactly who the clueless person posting here is....and it aint me.

@Petrogel. My you are completely clueless. Kodak Alaris is the largest film producer in the world. It makes and sells more film than every other film company on the planet...combined. Their sales have been increasing steadily. You have no clue what you are talking about.

What does the film arm of Kodak, known as Kodak Alaris sell? Well, more film than all the other film companies put together. Anything else you want to know?

Only Fuji has survived? Kodak outsells Fuji film many times over.

Roland Karlsson: I wonder. Have DPReview hired a hipster?

All those analog fake retro stuff they cover nowadays.

There is nothing fake or retro about it. It is an instant film format that many enjoy. What I wonder, is why you think a "hipster" only uses this? Pretty out of touch

An instagram filter isnt a photo shot with film on a self made camera. Same as shaping a block of Tofu into a Turkey wont be the same...or a synthesizer trying to sound like a Steinway. The result is different...the experience is different.

All about the real fun of photography.

Unfortunately, it appears many here have forgotten about fun and instead take themselves and their cat photos to seriously

joe_leads: The Kickstarter page suggests that the "final retail price" of this thing is above 1500 USD. Which sane person will buy that, if you can get a similar Russian lens for 30 bucks on eBay?

You cant get a similar lens for $30 on ebay

WillWeaverRVA: Another Kickstarter-funded lens that no one in their right mind would use for anything serious. Good grief.

I use old lenses for the effect they can have on the photo. I have done so professionally for decades and achieve a different look in my photos. Many of us who actually have a clue use this type of gear for serious work

PhotoUniverse: Holy s#!^
Lots of negative and conspiracy theory people on this site!

Most of the negative comes from those who couldn't obtain a decent photo even if their soul was posessed by St Ansel. They are however experts at how many pixels wide the CA is with a variety of lenses, and how each camera rates at 50,000 iso. Oh...and they may have a good photo of their cat....a VERY sharp photo.

In reply to:

Mokutaru: In my opinion what made lots of old photos special back in their days is the fact that photography was not very common. And now that photography is very common its hard to find pure untouched digital photos that look good from the camera without photoshop alterations and then calling it "style".

What i find fancinating these days is when lighting is utilized for photography.

Lighting has always been paramount in photography. Your post makes little sense.
