Dear Fujifilm...

Please stop saying people are triggered when they simply disagree with you, its a phrase that should be saved for serious situations where someone has suffered a form of abuse and the content being discussed is genuinely likely to cause them emotional distress, trivializing its use as a put down in a thread such as this belittles you and this forum.




Sure. As long as the disagreements do not devolve into ad hominem I'm on board.

Bugger! All my Fuij cameras are now useless because of design choices made by Fuji. No IBIS and no fully articulated screen. I will sell them.

Sooooo...everything I brought up here has come true. Are you going to abandon Fuji now like you said?

Oh dear....do I really have to explain this? 


You implied that the lack of certain features was holding you back, you didn't actually say "The lack of features is holding me back"! 


"We need fully articulated touch screens. Fully articulated and touch enabled. It's inexcusable. If I'm in front of the camera, I need to be able to see myself or the subject I'm assisting." 

"The next item is IBIS. Now I know that folks are going to groan as they ALWAYS do. Fuji fanatics are passionate about their cameras. But In Body Image Stabilization is a must have." 


If the lack of these features were not holding you back then you wouldn't NEED any of them now would you? 

Wel well well well well...look at what we have here in 2020. Not only do we have IBIS...we have articulated touch screens. Looks to me like I'm owed an apology.

You know you are very argumentative. OF COURSE it will add weight and bulk!  It's simple physics.  Have you compared the depth of the X-T1 and the 2?  It certainly does make a difference in moving parts/gears, etc.  Jesus...

No one has to tell me the sky is blue either that's where common sense comes in to play.  Nobody cares about your pocket computer/camera/phone.

Just wanted to check in and make sure you haven't sold off all of you gear. I've not forgotten all of the nasty things youve said to me over the years telling me that I had it all wrong. That we don't need IBIS or fully articulated screens yet here we are in 2020 with THOSE EXACT FEATURE REQUESTS THAT I NEVER ABANDONED. You were wrong. Are you man enough to admit that you got it wrong?

I was not here when this thread happened and I did not take part in it, but having read through it now I would say that although epscott held his stance in a very military manner, which some others obviously could not tolerate well, he stated his opinions to which he had his full right and he did not deserve the negative reactions that he got. He addressed Fujifilm in his post and his requirements are obviously valid for a big enough group of users and that led to Fuji creating a camera with those features present, alongside other cameras without them for users who have other priorities. Technically his opinions were correct. +1 epscott. My 2 cents.

    • In May 2020, I have the latest firmware update and I have noticed that this problem is still there, but as I mainly shoot landscapes it has so far not been a problem.  However, for spontaneous people shots it could be disastrous!  For wedding photography (just to give an example) the problem needs fixing, if one is to catch fleeting expressions.  Professional models can no doubt hold an expression and still look natural, but normal people can't!
    • I have the X100V and the tilt screen seems to be very practical. It is very thin, but the feel is not flimsy at all! Well done!. The V becomes realy warm, we'll see how it will do when it is realy hot outside! (I live in very warm climate). For longer video sequences I have problems (for videos I'll buy a small Panasonic LX10). But the lens is great, pritty much sharper than the X100F without much loss of the shade and color transitition (fidelity). The film-simulations are great for JPEG fotogr
    • I use the Op/Tech Dual Harness, which is modestly priced and easily enables me to carry two camera, one of them a large Medium Format analogue camera, for hours without discomfort. I review the harness as used with the Pentacon Six here: http://pentaconsix.com/p6straps.htm I have now added the Op/Tech straps to my GFX 50S, threading the straps through the clips that are supplied with the camera, and this works very well. The Op/Tech Super Pro B connectors look very similar to the strap
    • I have three of the Hartblei Pentacon Six to Fuji GFX  adapters: simple adapter, shift adapter and tilt adapter. With them a series of longer lenses can be used.  For instance the old Enna 400mm lens is excellent on the Pentacon Six and so will easily cover the GFX format.  See a review of it here: http://pentaconsix.com/enna.htm There are two 500mm lenses for the Pentacon Six, the Pentacon lens, which is very heavy (3.5 kg) but excellent.  See here: http://pentaconsix.com/500_560mm.htm
    • Review of Laowa 17mm & Fuji 23mm GF lenses First, the Fuji 23mm f/4 GF lens for the GFX cameras is excellent in all respects.  There is very slight vignetting at maximum aperture, but that is to be expected with such a wide-angle lens. The 17mm Laowa lens is not in the same league.  No EXIF data on aperture transmitted to the camera, and there is significant vignetting at f/4 and f/5.6, with some vignetting even at f/11 – visible in test pictures of a brick wall, but not obvi
