FujiGuys appeal to Adobe and Apple + 14mm test shots

I need your help to push adobe and apple to support X-Trans Raw file. They have the required docs to properly support it.

This is the short messages on twitter written by the Fuji guys. So what can we do? Write your own short appeal in the comments. Let’s collect them and send them all to Adobe and Apple!

P.S.: And Rico Pfirstinger posted a 13 test shots with the new 14mm f/2.8 on flickr. Click here to see them all in high-res.

X10 vs X20 image comparison?

X10 vs X20

 (click here to see the whole image)

That’s a terrific improvement! Look at the image comparison between X10 and X20 posted on thenewcamera here (from the Fuji catalogue). Now low-pass filter, new sensor and incredible fast autofocus. The results seem to be great. Let’s wait for the first accurate reviews of the X20… but it’s all just a simulation!

Some Fujirumors readers were wondering if this comparison is real… the images are identical! But “see the bottom of the page [of the catalogue or Fujfilm X20 page]. Like always, on the feature pages it says: *Sample photos are simulated images.” (thanks MJr). So here is the “simulated” comparison. Hey Fuji, what about a real comparison? Maybe we have to wait for the first reviews to see some.

X100s and X20 previews and catalogue + XF14mm f/2.8 test shot

Xstory

Take a look at the technology inside the X100s and X20 (click here or the image above)

imaging-resource previews: For the X20 preview click here and for the X100s preview click here: From the X100s summary: “If you like your X100, you’ll probably want to run — not walk — to the nearest camera store or friendly internet retailer, to lay hands on the new X100S. We expect the improvements to be pretty dramatic.

X100s catalogue PDF: http://www.fujifilm.com/products/digital_cameras/x/fujifilm_x100s/pdf/index/x100s_catalogue_01.pdf

X20 catalogue PDF: http://www.fujifilm.com/products/digital_cameras/x/fujifilm_x20/pdf/index/x20_catalogue_01.pdf

One of the things that I really like about the X100 is the fact that you can process its raw files in just about any software, and they always come out pretty damn good. Well, kiss that option goodbye with the newly announced replacement.” If you want to read more, click here to read some thoughts on the announcement of Fuji and Nikon at CES.

Hands-on previews

X100s: “The button and control layout of the Fuji X100S is the same as the Fuji X100, but the raw button will be labelled Q in the final production sample, and this gives access to the same type of Quick Menu as is found on the Fuji X-Pro1. This is one of the best function or quick menu arrangements that we have come across, since features may be adjusted merely by navigating to them using the navigation controls and then using the dials to alter the settings.” Read the whole techradar hands on review here.

X100s: ephotozine hands on preview. They also posted X1oos and X20 comparison pics. Take a look at it at the end of this post.
