DPRTV Declares Fujifilm X100V their All TIme Favorite Reviewed Camera and Most Viewed DPRTV Video EVER

DPRTV shared a video about their top 5 favourite products they reviewed in all these years.

Guess which camera comes out on top for Chris?

It’s the Fujifilm X100V.

And there is more!

The Fujifilm X100V was not only Chris’ favourite camera, but their X100V review was also the highest viewed video EVER on DPRTV.

As for Jordan, he places the Fujifilm X-T3 and Fujifilm GFX100S on the 5th spot and covers those two cameras with lots of love!

DPReview is Closing: Good Bye after 25 Years of Excellent Service

DPReview has just announced they will be closing DPReview.com forever.

This is a very sad news for the photography community. Something I guess nobody saw coming nor thought would ever be possible.

Also their youtube channel will shut down.

We can just wish all the best to the people working on DPR. I am sure your competence and knowledge will be appreciated and needed on other platforms, that will be happy to see you join their team. In fact, Chris and Jordan joined PetaPixel already.

Panasonic Announces Development of Organic CMOS Sensor that Realizes Good Color Reproduction under all Kinds of Light

Myth of the Organic Sensor

10 year after the joint Panasonic and Fujifilm announcement, where the organic sensor was first unveiled to the masses with great optimism and claims of glorious performances and dynamic range, we haven’t seen anything coming to the market, expect for a camcorder prototype shown by Panasonic back in 2019.

The last update we got was back in October 2021, when Panasonic unveiled a 35MP organic Super35 CMOS sensor with global shutter.

Well, today we got another update from Panasonic, where they announced the “development of organic CMOS image sensor technology that realizes good color reproduction even under all kinds of light sources“. You can read the full press release below.

Is Fujifilm Still Involved?

Unlike the first announcement in 2013, that was made by Panasonic and Fujifilm together, this time it’s only Panasonic, who released a press release regarding the organic sensor development.

So the question I guess is if Fujifilm has pulled out of the organic sensor development.

The last statement in this regard comes from Panasonic, who in October 2018 said they are still working on it with Fujifilm.

So at least until 2018, Fujifilm and Panasonic did work on it together, but I don’t know if that’s the case still today. I will try to figure that out and in case let you know.

UPDATE: Laowa Argus 28mm f/1.2 will NOT be available for Fujifilm X mount

Whops, I owe you a correction.

Yesterday Venus Optics contacted me and asked to share on FujiRumors the news about their new Laowa Argus 28mm f/1.2 is coming.

They did not specify the mounts, but since they know I cover only Fujifilm stuff, I assumed they’d pass me only Fujifilm related information and I did share the article here.

But sadly that was not the case.

After the scepticism some of you expressed in the comments, I did contact Venus Optics again, and I can now confirm that the Laowa Argus 29mm f/1.2 will NOT be coming for Fujifilm X mount.

I do apologize for the error and I have now clarified with Venus Optics that further communication between us shall only happen if Fujifilm related gear is involved or/and the available mounts are clearly specified.

This should make sure that such errors won’t occur in future.

Sorry guys.
