Besides…do we know for a fact that MSFT is actually storing what the Kinect is hearing/seeing?
So you are going to financially support a behavior you find problematic…but that’s not hypocritical or douchy?

It is only spying if they don’t tell you they are doing it.

Nobody is spying on you. You really think MSFT gives a crap about people’s personal life? They would bother even if you paid them.

To those that are worry about privacy…don’t get one.
How hard of a problem is that to solve?
It is not like you NEED one to stay alive.

Misleading only to those who just read headlines and think they have read the articles…
What is a “good” DSLR for a beginner depends on what the beginner wants to learn regarding photography…
- is it about what a DSLR can do versus other types of cameras?
- is it about getting a better understanding of things like aperture, shutter speed, etc?
- is it about picture quality?
As for “too complicated”…they all have Full Auto/Program mode to get you going. Nobody says you have to know what all the buttons do inside of a week.
The advise of a used DSLR is a good one…a Nikon D40 w/ and 18-55mm lens can be had for $200 on Craigslist. We have access to lots of gear and we still use it often.
The X100S was it. We could not believe how great a “street” camera the thing was…non-obtrusive and FAST (both in focusing and being ready for the next shot).
The last time we took a DSLR to NYC was with a D40 and a Lensbaby:
That was a lot of fun as well…but full-manual mode does require us to think while shooting. Still, we loved that outing in NYC! Where else would you just come upon a woman in a wedding gown crossing crossing the street during the day???
Have one on our D90 and it does work quite well for bright sun: http://www.rainydaymagazine.com/RDM2011/Home/September/Week3/RDMHomeSep1611.htm#Delkin_PopUpShadeITW
It works really well and is a solution to the viewing problem, but having the optical/electronic viewfinders on the X100S is such an awesome feature that we would be hard pressed to go without it again.
After taking the X100S on a recent trip to NYC for some street shooting, we have to say that a viewfinder is a “must-have.” The LCD back is great for when it is not too bright out, but fairly useless when the sun is going full blast.
Here are some of the pics from the outing: http://www.rainydaymagazine.com/RDM2013/Home/May/Week1/RDMHomeMay0613.htm#FujifilmX100s_StreetsOfNYC
Took the X100S to NYC for the weekend and did some street photography along 5th Ave:
Could not have asked for a better camera for the outing.
So you don’t bother with news from other parts of the world neither? Provincial much?
Either you don’t know what being rich means …which is understandable, or you don’t know much about assholes…which is surprising, but lumping the two together in the comment is just lazy.
Get a clue…because the “average person” don’t buy unproven products when the price tag is $30K. Even now, it is difficult to sell a $15K car from a well known company if the car is a 1st-gen model.
Well…a NYC apartment is going to feel HUGE!
Totally agree. The best camera is the one you have with you…and the X100S is starting to be the one that is winning out in the “grab-n-go” contest of late. Will see how things are in another few months.
We have been posting a few thoughts on the Fuji X100S :
Here are some shots done using only the full-auto mode: http://www.rainydaymagazine.com/RDM2013/Home/April/Week3/RDMHomeApr1913.htm#FujifilmX100s_FullAuto
Click on any of the images for a larger version. While we still grab our Nikon DSLR for some of the outings, for just walking around town, day hikes, and such, the X100S is the one getting the nod more often than not.
