    He was pointing that Canon video shooters are meant to put up with something the still's shooters of Canon never would put up with for even one photo!

    Unless they buy the dedicated video camera!

    If the C200 had some weird crop still image mode, the still guys wouldn't sit crying about it, they'd just buy the stills camera. 

  2. We all know the outcome.... Each camera will have pros and cons... None will check every box. Some people will buy whichever checks the most of their particular boxes. Some will stick with what they have and hope that the next release is the one to tempt them to spend. Rinse and repeat ad infinitum.

    The X-H2 will be interesting but I’m wondering how many of those features will flow through to the X-H1. Either 10bit or 4k60p would be amazing — even if it was a paid upgrade

    I think I read that the XH1 processor is not fast enough for these new specs.

    To me it seems like 4K60 10bit 4:2:0 internal, and 4:2:2 external.

    Yea, hard to work out what it means... Hopefully it is just 4K/60p that has to take the hit, with the rest of the resolutions/frame rates getting 10bit/4:2:2

    30fps in stills too!? Probably just jpg, but the jpgs on Fuji are beautiful 

  5. The moire is only noticeable in 1080/120

    But the point still remains... What is being shot on FF that makes S35 so redundant?

    I'd like to see a FF fuji too, for stills and having more options is great and all... But I don't really get the clamour for FF video. 99% of hollywood films have been shot in this S35.

    Yes, but that still doesn't change the fact that going to BSI isn't likely to increase DR by any measurable amount. It didn't with the 1" sensor and it didn't with the FF sensor. How is that going to be any different with the new APS-c sensor when it'll likely be using the same architecture as Sony's newest FF BSI sensors? There has been no increase in DR on the FF side, do you really think APS-c is suddenly going to jump a stop?


    The XT2 uses an x-trans sensor and has around 12 stops... The XT3 will be using a BSI sensor that has been touted as having higher DR. Considering the A6500 has this type of sensor and has around 13.5 stops in raw... It's possible,

    Anyway, only 4 days to wait and we will find out.

    New as in something different - like an organic sensor. Just going BSI with a revised architecture and a slight MP bump isn't going to yield a significant DR increase. It hasn't in any other sensor over the last few years. 

    Sony has sensors from 12 stops to over 15. Their stacked sensors are built for speed, at the expense of DR. The new Fuji will not be a stacked sensor.

    I don't see a single re-design which is pretty damn lazy... full announcement Sept.6 (day after Canon ?) DOA anyone?

    If it ain't broke....

    The XT2 has great ergonomics

    Damn, the choices are stacking up... If this has anything close to Canon AF, i'll buy it. If not, I'll buy the Canon FF and have XH1 as B cam. 

  9. First time i've logged in for many months as I have been so happy shooting with my XT2 that other camera news didn't interest me... But this was worth a log in! I absolutely love the XT2, but banding is a problem, so 10bit should fix this. Fuji colours are just so, so beautiful (even better than Canon) and the Eterna lut/simulation is so nice. If the AF is further improved, this will be the camera of the year.

    It amazes me that so many people ignore Fuji, but I actually quite like it that way... Feels like being part of a select group. Stills are exceptional, the lenses are beautiful, solid video specs, good DR, the best skintones in the price range and constant firmware updates. I think this select group is about to get alot bigger though, once people see the Fuji colour in 10bit glory.

    @Jimmy thats good to know. Soooo....nothing to see here ? ?

    There's plenty to see.... ML is stunning, I love the 60p mode and the 3.5k mode can be handy, at times.

    The title is just a bit clickbaity. You could take literally any camera and, if you had the source code, you could run it at full capacity at breakneck speed/heat and on the very fastest CF cards and get more out of it that the given specs. It comes at a price though, dropped frames, occasional messed up frames, no usable live view and a time limit.
