Here's one of Canon's Cinema EOS cameras, a C-500, nestled inside a sturdy pro video rig with a 30-300mm cinema lens attached.

Looking at those wafers I just wish someone would just cut them into 6 cm x 6 cm squares and put it into a camera back that I can use with my Hasselblad V-series! I'm sure people with 6x7 and 4x5 cameras are thinking the same.
What a out Tokina?
It has been bugging me for a while but I kept silent. But now I have to say it : I hate this format of presentation !! (slideshow of images with a little commentary below). I much prefer a continuous article.
I feel better now :-)
Have a good day everybody!
For the ones who wants to hear about Olympus, Australian YouTube techno-blogger Blunty got an exclusive interview.
Cut the new DP quattro in 1/2!!! But which way to cut it....across the lens? or across the body...
I agree all-two way cut of this real strange thing.
I wish they had any highlights there...
then produce a highlight by yourself
Difficult to get your hands on the X-T1 at CP+ ??You should have come to the Fuji showroom in Roppongi (Tokyo): they have 4 in permanent demonstration that you can play with, featuring the 10-24 f4 OIS, the 56mm f1.2 and the 16-55mm zoom.No queue :-)
doesn't surprise me that there is no queue. After the results I have seen of that camera, i would not even go there.
I was at the Fuji showroom today, it's a great little place.
1) where is Olympus stand report ?2) does copycat ugly hassysony cam really a highlight of the show? Really ?
Oh come on...
Good to see you're feeling better!
save the best for the last :)
Thanks Larry, still at home flu continues. :) soon to be better.
Please, just stop it. You're embarrassing yourself.
Looking at the Sigma quatro, I think they are drinking the same cool-aid. What are they thinking? IMO ugliest camera of all time including Hasselbad.
I would choose Hassey version over Sony, IF the price is the same or $25 more.
the quatro could become a runner, reduce the size of the lens and put an android phone into it. The shape and body size fits.
I really do like the design of that Hasselblad, just not the price :-(
Interesting you mention that the 70-200mm f4 G is beautifully well balanced on the A7/R Barney, many have suggested it's 'too big' but it looks pretty good to me. Care to share a few more thoughts on the feel of the two together?
Why doesn't Pentax make a mirrorless 645? That would be a truly unique camera and sure to make a few heads turn.
Because there isn't anything in the EVF land even close to the MF viewfinder... one needs to look through it to know why
Pentax doesn't want to develop a whole range of new lenses?
JustDavid, people who compare MF viewfinders to the cheap imitation consumer cameras don't know what they are missing out on. And Pentax 645 is still very small viewfinder, since it's a crop is quite small by MF standards.
It would require new lenses to work with a svelte body.Remember that goofy Pentax mirrorless? It was so thick because they could not compress the space of the traditional mirror box and keep compatibility with the lenses.It is easier to put traditional lenses on thin mirrorless bodies (just add a distance ring that can mount) than the other way round.But conceptually: yes it would be good to see a very portable camera with MF sensor. I have a Fuji 6x45 AF MF camera, it looks like a 35mm compact camera on steroids but it is still very portable. Such a device in digital format with big sensor would be awesome.
right, a mirrorless on the base of the 6x45 Fuji, the Pentacon 6, or Mamyia 7, that would be the hammer. Mamyia made a camera of that kind, the ZD, they abondoned the project because US Mamyia representative boycotted it and refused to sell it in the US. It was classic VF, but quiet compact.
> "... interesting ... The DP2 Quattro certainly feels very different to its decidedly 'traditional' forebears thanks to a greatly elongated body and unconventional angled grip."
I hope it catches on and leads to more innovation, but ... my speculation is that this very "interesting" camera may have a dramatically lower price by Black Friday of 2015. Or even 2014?
So there was a first to be seen 645D 2014, first to be seen 1.4x TC, first to be seen MF wideangle zoom lens... but Ricoh/Pentax booth seems to have gone invisible while DPR staff toured the halls... at least judging from no stand report and no inclusion in highlights... but then, of course, it can't be a highlight if it wasn't reviewed on DPR... :)
I know. Personally, I am much more interested in the Pentax 645D 2014. Perhaps medium format is much to far outside the mainstream consumer cameras featured by DPR. And I noticed that they only featured cameras. Perhaps accessories are not considered news. Who knows how they make their decisions.
the 645D II is in the slideshow (my aplogies - I simply failed to include that slide originally) and we'll cover it in more detail when more details are forthcoming.
As for 'dpreview staff' it was just me at the show but the teleconverter was covered on our front page earlier this month:
Thanks for the quick reply and added slide, Barney. And well done for covering the whole show on your own!
All for the amazing low price of!!
