WT21: The video shows the power of music. The space shuttle is a very large, very expensive piece of technology whose reign in space travel is pretty inconsequential. Very little happened, and the most memorable event about any of the shuttles, sadly, is the one that blew up.
I am sure they were utilitarian, but the music makes you feel like you are viewing some poignant significant moment, when the the shuttle era has really been quite boring. The Benny Hill theme song could have fit in nicely to the time lapse, and given the viewer a MUCH different emotional response. You can find the BH theme music on youtube such as http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MK6TXMsvgQg. Try it out yourself, both ways. Mute the LA audio and turn up BH.
International Space Station was mentioned, which is a good one. Also, I forgot the Hubble. I don't remember if that was launched by the shuttle, but it was certainly serviced by the shuttle.

I want, but this is a bit silly in price. How about $60?
I'm going to use the trial, though. That would be huge if I could key stroke my way through quick levels adjustment.
Nope. Still lame.
One of the ugliest cameras I've ever seen.
Does the 6D have micro-adjust?
Interesting and pretty, but not for me. Hope they sell a boat load to the ladies and the men who like bling.
Baczek: what this video doesn't show is focus accuracy. i don't care how fast PDAF focuses if the picture comes out all soft. hybrid AF is MUCH more accurate with older lenses like the 50 1.8.
CDAF will still yield more accurate focusing than PDAF in low light IF it gets focus. CDAF is not prone to front or back focusing. But, CDAF can struggle in low light. Then again, Canon Rebels have been terrible in low light, and for years they didn't (and perhaps still don't?) come with a simple AF assist light!! When both use AF assist lights, CDAF will still be more accurate with center point focus. CAF is the only place where PDAF rules now.
Is this the first Canon WITHOUT a direct print button??
Koulang: Why there is no wide angle or tele lenses like 10mm, 200m or 300mm for mirroless camera?
You mean primes? Panasonic has a pretty nice 100-300mm tele, and I use it on my tiny EPM1.
Now if only it included a real phone!
This will be a major staple lens in three years for m43. There will be enough used lenses, and enough price drop, that even the budget conscious, when they need a portrait lens, will get one.
FINALLY, though I'm sure in true facebook style, they are sniffing your contacts and everything else on your smart phone at the same time.
Is it wrong that I'm enjoying the train wreck that is the FB IPO?
If anyone remembers the Oly zooms from 43, they were always over the moon. One reason I never tried the 43 system.
Looks like a better body. I tried the C3. Way too small.
BUT HOW ABOUT SOME LENSES SONY!!!
Good for Sony to try and get this lens light/smaller. They also need to release more/other lenses, like a fast 35mm.
Absolutic: I went through every m4/3 camera and lens. I alsoOwnD800. Just got Sony NEX 5n recently and has been kicking myself ever since for not getting it earlier. U get a brilliant sensor the sameThat $1200 d7000 has for $649. It's crazy. The low ligjtHigh ISoActually seemsBetter than d7000 and DXO markAgrees. I am astounded by iso3200 in PASM and iso6400 in twilight mode. M4/3 and my last one was 16mp g3 was not evenIn same league in dynamic range and low light. 10fps and 4fps modes are excellent. AF after firmware 1.01 update this march is superb and focuses in low light for me no problem. And I am using the slow kit 18-55 lens and I could care less because low light pic are that good. Only full frame is better. It kills my canon 7d in low light. NowMy Nikon d800 is better but it cost five times as much and is a large camera
Wait till you hit the lens wall. NEX Is a great sensor, and little else. Hope you like MF with legacy lenses. That's the one redeeming part of NEX.
bassandbligh: This camera is amazing!! Haven't seen the 'orbing' issue on any of the X10's we've sold. Over 30!! Think it's something of nothing to be honest. Half of the people who dislike it, don't even own one!
Did you even look at the pics above? Are you saying that DPR doctored the orbs in? Seems like a real issue, IMO.
Louis_Dobson: No OM-D support? Grrrrr. Never did like Adobe much.
Louis,What do you develop your OMD raw images in now?
