  1. Fuji X-H1. IBIS, Phase Detect 4K beast?

    The point is people have a bit trouble to get that the proof is in the pudding ; ) A camera starts to show its potentiality in the sensor's color character. All manufacturers have a color signature by their own. As Inazuma wisely pointed out, FujiFilm is above the line. Color blindness won't be able to see it, that's for sure :-)
  2. Fuji X-H1. IBIS, Phase Detect 4K beast?

    No monochromatic simulation mode can save the absence of rich tones of grey. Stands only B or W then, not even B&W... ; ) The surprise to me is the understatement as signature here. Any doubts on the superior Fuji color science? How daltonics see the world is my humble suggestion for a new perspective on the whole forest than only the brown of the leaves of the tree (out of autumn season :-D)
  3. Fuji X-H1. IBIS, Phase Detect 4K beast?

    The most funny is that all in a sudden, ergonomics & the usual stuff to endlessly discuss somehow related, but not really so useful as apparently the wishes of a few would like to pretend to be, it is much more important than IQ... What the hell... I thought people are here because of the pictures. We may all be geeks but not at 1st rate, I thought. I see I've been really wrong after all :-D Filmmakers usually live immersed in shortcomings to look for workarounds and learn to take them as part of their craft. Like warriors on their scars.

    @Matthew Hartman Take a look on the Portuguese clip and you'll find a video camera in disguise of a stills film camera as well... ; ) Strictly as video camera, the X-H1 outcome reminds me the JVC HD100 series film look (known by that in just 3 minutes, that is, straight out the box) much more than a decade ago... Or the Silicon Imaging camera from Ari Presler and Jason Rodriguez with the help of the codec master and R3D competitor, David Newman by Cineform (later, part of GoPro), the same camera also used in the Academy Winner Slumdog Millionaire ten years ago...
  5. Fuji X-H1. IBIS, Phase Detect 4K beast?

    You are right though : ) A shame no other competitor is able to produce something as much closer to film than these guys from FUJIFILM. I guess the fact they have no high-end other than medium format speaks ages on it other than probably Panasonic. Any other manufacturer it is useless to let different hopes for.
  6. Fuji X-H1. IBIS, Phase Detect 4K beast?

    I don't see anything more beautiful than the colors produced by this camera (I don't give a shit if they are 8-bit even though 4:2.2 is available through HDMI) but I told you already: They should really hire you! Cheers, as both Panasonic (GH5, G7, etc) and Fuji (X-H1 for pre-order) customer, E :-)
  7. Lenses for Fuji X System?

    https://www.fujirumors.com/kipon-announces-3-canon-ef-fujifilm-fx-gfx-autofocus-adapters/ As well, any EF lenses to cover full frame, even those made for crop format but to cover the larger size in the higher end of the range (v.g. Tokina and Sigma wide zooms) if/when coupled to a focal reducer. So, smart adapters will apply too.
  8. Panasonic GH6 - Predictions

    More than a prediction, it is reality already and officially announced: http://news.panasonic.com/global/press/data/2018/02/en180214-2/en180214-2.html
  9. Fuji X-H1. IBIS, Phase Detect 4K beast?

    "Why do people always want to defend cameras until death?" Indeed! But that one you should ask to Sony fanboys instead :-D You see me to praise the Lord of cameras, not to denigrate with their eventual shortcomings. As far as myself, I am not here defending an investment I didn't comply... yet ; ) Battery performance means nothing, close to the best IQ Fujifilm cameras produce...
  10. Fuji X-H1. IBIS, Phase Detect 4K beast?

    So, no excuse if that fits all the kind of buyers... LOL ;-)
  11. Fuji X-H1. IBIS, Phase Detect 4K beast?

    If you only count with a single battery, you're not a professional neither an amateur but probably just a camera collector. No user will save in any way other than as a few spare batteries inside the photo bag. Could be a video bag, no matter the size of the bag :-)
  12. Fuji X-H1. IBIS, Phase Detect 4K beast?

    The grip comes cheaper with the kit. A bit more than €200 excl.VAT.
  13. Fuji X-H1. IBIS, Phase Detect 4K beast?

    Sure, there is. Neither she is the same blonde for every scene or single shot as we could tend to think ; ) People tend to expect nowadays auto-anything-everything, AE, AF and so on... Minimal work and that's it :X
  14. Fuji X-H1. IBIS, Phase Detect 4K beast?

    C'mon, now when the warm-up is almost done...?! LOL ;-)
  15. Fuji X-H1. IBIS, Phase Detect 4K beast?

    Nothing related to the camera, I bet. As you inferred by your own post Dave @DaveAltizer, it is the color processing of that film simulation mode, that's some sort of LUT anyhow and anyway, not much. Who said there's no need for good CC anymore? :-D
  16. Fuji X-H1. IBIS, Phase Detect 4K beast?

    Have you seen that Portuguese clip? I find the highlight rolloff of this camera (and eventually from other Fujis) particularly above the hybrids average! Much better than Panny to my eyes (E :-) PS: Kudos to Mattias (among others); the young fellow has been on spot ;-)
  17. Fuji X-H1. IBIS, Phase Detect 4K beast?

    Pardon me, Chris and Jon, but it is too little to be disappointed. As Jon wisely pointed out earlier above: Cinematographers or DoPs use light meters! :-)
  18. Fuji X-H1. IBIS, Phase Detect 4K beast?

    They should all also listen our Jon! I must be much clear on it... If I'd be any manufacturer, I would hire our good fellow Jon. He is one of the best critics of cameras I've ever read : ) And this doesn't mean I don't notice when for some reason there's something he isn't aware about (like it happened with his recent one on the OLED he had just bought vs some detail he let away from his own attention in the UHD projector's thread when compared with another one of similar resolution instead anyway :-D) BTW speaking of the usual devils over here, where have you been today, Don? @webrunner5
  19. Fuji X-H1. IBIS, Phase Detect 4K beast?

    Fair point, yours, Jon @jonpais (for some valuable points yet on Panny side...) Here goes anyways, without mention such beautiful monochromatic: DPReview input from different glass options and IBIS samples: And yet from my native country where the European press event (with FUJIFILM to follow DJI choosing Lisbon once again) has taken place for that unique color rendering of the remarkable Portuguese 'Azulejo' (who knows the Portuguese painted tin-glazed ceramic tilework knows what I'm talking about*): * https://pt.wikipedia.org/wiki/Azulejo Can anyone guess how would end those blues if as for instance shot with any Sony mirrorless camera...?
  20. Fuji X-H1. IBIS, Phase Detect 4K beast?

    No valid though... : ) Spill the beans! ;-) Meanwhile:
  21. Fuji X-H1. IBIS, Phase Detect 4K beast?

    This camera is much more interesting than apparently seems by the initial reactions from outsiders. Do you want a video camera really cinematic straight out the box? Buy FUJIFILM; IBIS + 200Mbps matches a unique combo, is actually something coupled there and truly tops.
  22. Fuji X-H1. IBIS, Phase Detect 4K beast?

    Yeah, I've always found Johnnie's reviews pretty honest BTW as much as a Fuji's camera is invariably a unique tool to say the least... Hard to not fall in love! (E :-)
  23. GH5 focus excellence

    Can you do one of those of your tests with native lenses at least? Don't you feel tempted to buy a Viltrox?
  24. GH5 focus excellence

    Metabones, I suppose? What about native lenses? Or then the Viltrox adapter.
