Revenge of the Great Camera Shootout

Last week I was introduced to this camera test by a friend. It shows you, its not about the machine.

We’ve got a lot to prove in Revenge of the Great Camera Shootout 2012. Some of it will surprise you, some of it will shock you, and some of it will change the way you work forever. Let’s make this clear: This is not the shootout you’re expecting.

Will you see the empirical testing where we set the lighting, keep it constant, and run all the cameras through so pixel pushers are happy knowing they’ve made the right purchase? Sure. What’s new and different is that we’re going to show you what you can do with each of these cameras on the same set by letting expert DPs who’ve mastered these cameras get creative with them. They’ve figured out the best profiles, they know how to light for their camera while keeping color timing in mind. This shootout is about two things- what a camera is capable of and what a DP can do with his abilities to make it look great with all of his skills, experience and talent. The key element here is talent. There are no winners as with all of our tests, since winning is dependent on your abilities.

This 90 minute documentary will be presented in three parts that will air on the 15th of June, July, and August. It’s critical you watch all three episodes to fully understand the total message. Each segment will feature three of the nine camera masters describing their approach to the creative shot. The three parts are interwoven and each will feature new guests imparting their knowledge and wisdom for you to learn from. Stop, listen and learn, it’s not all about the cameras! I hope you enjoy this passion project we call Revenge of the Great Camera Shootout.

FUJIFILM X100S

I am really interested in this camera, mostly for travel and street work. I almost pulled the trigger on the X100 a few months back. I glad I waited. What I think I was most happy about was the High Speed Auto Focus and Quick Response as well as increased ISO coverage. So really this update is all about speed.

Auto-switching between phase detection and contrast AF,
New Intelligent Hybrid AF brings your scene into focus in only 0.08 seconds*

Fuji claims cleaner high ISOs by one stop. The X100S will let you set AUTO ISO to grab as high as ISO 6,400, while the X100 could be set to go as high as ISO 3,200 in AUTO ISO. That should be good considering the speed of the f/2 lens.

The Fuji Guys show you all the bells, whistles and features of this camera
