mmarian: Not even shift ??? Who is this for, I wonder??

Probably for commercial product photography.

senn_b: As bird photographer I don't really need a FF camera, though 1Dx II as its predecessor sounds a technical prowess. I've got 7D and not exited at all by an upgrade with 7D II. But I'd very welcome 1D Mk IV successor.

@senn - Why don't you use HD video to do your birds? You'll get more good shots, better range of shots, better zoom, and just plain more satisfaction overall as you capture full bird motion and behavior.

maxnimo: Seriously, if this camera was pink with a Hasbro label it might make sense. All those sharp edges look positively ridiculous ... laughable actually. But then, I would never endanger my child with such sharp edges, which to me makes this camera unacceptable for either children or adults. So who is it for ... clowns?

You want a real laugh? If this camera was labeled Sony, Panasonic, Canon, Nikon or Pentax, just the appearance of it would cause uncontrollable laughter by most photographers ... I guarantee it with my life and my soul! Just be honest and admit that I'm right.

nicoboston: The potential issue with organic components is lifespan. Ho long these sensors will last?
Whole Foods will love them, though.

@HB - But a shell is created by an organic life form with zero human input, yet humans have not yet been able to duplicate it's amazing properties.

The bottom line here is - do not assume that something "organic" is always inferior to synthetic. It's a narrow minded view based on ignorance.

As far as sensor longevity ... who knows? If we can create a self-healing sensor perhaps it could last 50 thousand years.

@ Karroly - Huh? So skin is not part of natural evolution?
Why not bypass skin and just make synthetic leather? ... oh wait, they have! ... and synthetic leather turns out to be junk. Every synthetic leather belt I've had has broken or crumbled while real leather is still going strong after many decades.

@HB - Plastics are synthetic, man made. Wood, shells, bone and leather are made by a billion years of natural evolution and are vastly more stable in many situations.

On the other hand, wood outlasts most plastics by far if kept dry. Many plastics crack, crumble or melt after 4 to 10 years.

There isn't a single example that shows the edge sharpness of the lens.

Wi-Fi requires $600?
I just find that a bit odd since you can get a Wi-Fi device for $200 with a laptop attached.

maxnimo: At the very least they should ask to see the original photo (with EXIF data) before awarding the winner.

So should anyone not using RAW be excluded from photo contests?

1. Most people don't use RAW.
2. EXIF can't be that easily tweaked because I can't tweak it.
3. If they can tweak EXIF why can't they tweak RAW?

LOL - I didn't think it necessary to state the obvious.

On article A classic reinvented? Domke Chronicle Review (90 comments in total)

Waxed-canvas fabric is something they used 700 years ago. I guess the old becomes new again. They should come out with a camera made of bone and leather and sell it for $149,000.
