Hey, Good Lookin'

Postby gstark on Mon Sep 20, 2010 11:29 am

Well, Photokina is about to start in Cologne, and with it, we can expect some interesting new toys to be announced.

For starters, have a look at this gorgeous looking model that Fuji have dished up. Form a line to my right, please.

Looks excellent. Perfect for the street. A little more discreet than a d300 :shock:

Just depends how it feels in the hand and what the Hybrid viewfinder is like.

We saw this one this morning....everyone in the store almost simultaneously on different computers...and we all wanted one!!!

Coming from Fuji, a company knows how to make both lenses and sensors this camera should be a ripper!

Just take it to parties to show off I reckon. Use a different camera to take photos. :chook:

Where do you put the Velvia 50?

Two or three lights, any lens on a light-tight box are sufficient for the realisation of the most convincing image. Man Ray 1935.

Perhaps you're doing it the wrong way - try the film insertion gel. :biglaugh:

This camera has certainly got my undivided attention. Can't wait for the first unbiased reviews.

Looks so retro which is brilliant. Unfortunately the fixed lens and a costing of approx $1000US makes it just a tad too expensive. Release coming in March 2011 (maybe) :wink:

I think US$1000 is not too bad if the camera is as good as it might be. One of the rumour mills was suggesting US$1700 the other day, that's over the odds.

And it's just a paperweight, with the supplied lens anyway:
Paired with a 35mm f/1.4 lens, also made entirely of titanium,

Looks like I found my next camera (unless a D800 FF is released anytime soon)
