>>3477547Sony a7 range.Only brand to engage with modern product design and their minimalist, function following design is an absolute masterclass.It will be appreciated more for its design in 50 years than it is now.
I think the x-h1 is pretty neatit has all that fuji aesthetic and hands on control combined with a little more modern approach and that nice shoulder display
>>3477547I hate the way modern cameras and lenses are designed. I understand that part of it is a product of having to put the tech somewhere, but I don't have to like it.
>>3477548>modern product design and their minimalist, function following designLol no, looks like LegoI don't really think of cameras as a fashion accessory, it's a tool to do a job. A gripped DSLR, full frame tier, has just the right amount of heft. None of this namby-pamby shit for pussy-arsed faggots[EXIF data available.

>>3479243>but I don't think there a person that will argue they're well designed.I shoot Sony professionally. Their a7 series cameras are wonderful, and I'm happy with the ergonomics. I shoot with a 70-200 for hours at a time, and the grip is comfortable with or without the battery grip attached.>you need to rummage around the menus to get into something as vital wb.I don't understand this gripe people claim they have with Sony's menus. Everything is labeled and, thus, is easy to find. And Sony isn't short on custom buttons. You have:-- C1, C2, C3, C4-- AF-ON, AEL-- UDLR on the wheel-- The wheel center button-- The wheel itself-- 12 items under functionThat's 12 custom buttons and 12 custom function menu items. If you can't map white balance to one of those, then you're an idiot. If you need more than 24 custom functions, then you're overthinking your photography.
>>3477547my 30D always felt great, it had heft, I love the dials and controls, and simple menu.
>>3477931You're so manly. I bet you like large trucks too.
>>3477547People can disagree on the aesthetics, but functionality-wise I'd say the Ricoh GR is hard to beat.Haven't used the new III yet, but the I and II are compact yet comfortable and have an impeccable button layout that's perfect for one-handed shooting.It's hard to explain, but you can really feel it was designed specifically as a pocket camera for enthusiast photographers (and not soccer moms/dads, dentists, spec sheet nerds, tech gadget people, camera fashionistas, vloggers, etc.). All the controls just make sense and every setting you'd want to change quickly on the move can be adjusted (again: one-handed) in a few seconds at most - often without even looking.In a modern camera I don't think it really makes sense to separate the physical body from the software underneath when looking at design btw. Many important controls are purely digital.
>>3482281if they made a version that was 50mm-equivalent I might well own one, but 28mm-equiv can go die in a fucking fire.
>>3481717You may not have a problem, but lots of people do. The A7 series is in the uncomfortable position of not being compact and stylish like Fuji-X line, nor are they ergonomic for the vast majority of users with raw functionality like Canikon designs. They are like an uncomfortable go-between the two, and I'm not sure it's a trying to please two camps thing; they are just badly designed.
>>3477547I just came to say that this body design that has been embraced by Canon and Nikon and all the side brands is repulsive and I have hated it for the last 15odd years. When the fuck will we move away from this blob? Are they learning from Fuji and Sony?

>>3483840the design is fucked though. top plate droops to one side.
>>3483840back layout is an abomination too with tiny buttons spread out too much. it's a poor man's leica with ugly aesthetics.
>>3483855I think you are describing Sony.[EXIF data available. Click here to show/hide.]Camera-Specific Properties:Image-Specific Properties:Color Space InformationsRGBImage Width800Image Height549
>>3483855that layout looks organized, clean and quite aesthetically pleasing though, especially compared to... nearly every other camera, pic related a random example>abominationimagine having this much of a hate boner for a camera brand
>>3483867Yup, it's a brick!
>>3483855>>3483853I think it's a very pretty camera in the sense that Fujifilm's previous MF rangefinders, and the Xpan, follow the same design language. The controls are also almost the bare minimum required for a digital camera, like the platonic ideal of Leica transposed to digital in a way that Leica itself, tied to its film heritage as it is (with all the MF glass, no electric contacts on M-mount, and so forth), won't do. Even the fake rangefinder window (actually the focus assist light) is bang on.Needs IBIS and a screen that flips to hide itself though. And the secret-sauce SIMD routine they use to turn X-trans raws into Bayer approximation ought to get made open source, so that Darktable can quit sucking its way through an iceberg of dick en route to interactivity.
>>3483887Better yet, they need to ditch that x-trans meme. It's not an accident that their MF cameras have bayer sensors.
>>3483911>>3483887I honestly don't get why it's so difficult to deal with xtrans. People know how the filter is arranged on the sensor...
>>3483878That looks like something a retard who only wears underarmor clothes and drives a mall crawler would buy.
>>3483913And that arrangement has consequences. Fewer and more widely-spaced red and blue pixels means that you have a more difficult job interpolating color information, and even smart algorithms will get that wrong more often than they will with Bayer. (The classic symptom of this is colors bleeding into where they shouldn't, giving you people with skin-colored teeth or the like) And its not exactly like it gives you some large benefit in return. It's a gratuitous difference made more to give Fuji's marketing department something to talk about than to improve your photos. Even if the problems it causes you are minor or can be worked around, they're problems you wouldn't have at all if Fuji had done what everyone else does.
>>3483913x-trans images look like they've had an oil painting filter applied to them. They reproduce mid-frequencies accurately and smooth out image noise, but their 3x3 pixel matrix render them wholly incapable really fine detail. The best example I found during my time with my X-Pro 1 and X-E 2 was foliage; an X-trans sensor shits its pants when it comes to foliage and makes everything look like rubbery cactus fronds, as it's specifically designed to enhance mid-frequency detail. Fuji definitely know that X-trans was a mistake because they don't include it in their high end products. For the majority of the market, bayer is the right solution. X-trans goes in the opposite direction. If you want really fine pixel-level clarity, then bayer is already pretty great, but it doesn't get better than Foveon.
>>3483911It's not a bad idea per se: ditching the antialias filter and using a moire-resistant colour filter pattern.>>3483913It's hard because, as I see it from my cold northern ivory tower, babbymode Darktable devs can't into SIMD. So the xtrans interpolation stuff runs at 1/8 to 1/4 the speed, per core, of what e.g. NEF ingestion does.>>3483928>>3483984I've not seen what you describe on my X-pro 2, but I've also not looked for them. Regardless I'm generally very happy with the level of detail the files yield at 1:1. If there's a grand sin of Fuji's X-mount system it's that the bodies apply sharpening and denoising to the data before dumping it onto the card; though it's a mystery how much Canikony do in their respective mirrorless stuff.
>>3483984Both xpro1 and xe2 are old as shit and as resolution increases theres also way less xtrans demosaicing errors. Especially now with xtrans 4 at 26mpix. Also software has come a long way too.Aaaand thats a thread derailed.
>>3483928>>3483984ugh not this crap again. save your "expertise" for another thread -- not that there's any chance this one won't derail completely now
>>3477548Laaaaaaaaaaame. I like Sony products historically, but the a7 series is just a 130x100x50 box with "Camera (mirrorless)" written on it in design terms.
>>3483867hit a nerve there boy? >tiny buttons spread out too muchexactly describes the xpro-2's back. how does it describe the sony? in fact, fuji liked that horrid design so much they even carried it over to the GFX100. now that's a barren brick with tiny buttons.
>>3477555My thoughts as well.It reminds me of a smaller 50s
Lumix G9 is the comfiest and most well-rounded camera I've ever used. I was lent one a while back and I miss using it. Button placements, large and bright EVF, small lenses, card slots, etc. I'd really like to get one, but I'm still happy with my D750 and GX85. Also I have no money atm
>>3484019>b-buttons too smallnot everyone's a morbidly obese, fat-fingered baby hand freak like you, anonmaybe petition VTech to do a full frame Kidizoom if you need big friendly buttons on a camera
>>3483984Bayer in high end models? X-T100 entry level. Bayer sensor. High end? :-)
>>3477555I have X-H1 (along with X100f,X-T1 and XP2) and its my favourite Fuji to use. I like the minimal button layout also. Touch screen can fuck off though.
>>3484148I just have one Sony full frame body, because that's all you need with a brand that isn't trash.Just fyi, your bodies at launch together would cost £5392... and you have managed to get a crop sensor system with no lenses. Big oof.
