They should get rid of the battery as well and use that old school film transportation lever to produce just enough electricity to record the image and to drive the light meter.With a couple of spare SD cards you could shoot forever off the grid.
Would be even better if Nikon made a FM-style DSLR without LCD and thumb-lever charged.
I wonder what the GN is at 105mm.For the Nikon SB-910 the GN is 53 at 200mm and 49 at 105mm.Does this mean the GN would be around / almost 56 at 105mm for the i60? That would be a stop more than the i40.Hard to believe for this little flash.
But then again,,, it’s hard to believe what the i40 is able to do.
For a long time I’ve longed for a digital camera with simple manual focussing. Zone focussing, where you can easily adjust the zone with a quick movement of the finger.Old viewfinder streetshooter style.If the rest of the electronic is as fast and easy to operate as an analog camera this is an attractive camera.
I never had a Leica, never liked rangefinder focussing, never found Leica prices attractive… but the Q strikes a cord. (And one can always put gaffer tape on the red dot or paint it black)
For the time being I’m ok with my private LR license.
But this subscription-based model means, considering a private Photoshop license is out of question. I simply don't trust Adobe.
It’s kind of ironic - we ditch big and heavy DSLR systems for small and lightweight mirrorless systems. Why on earth should we be interested in an expensive and rigid subscription-based model?
Braxton7: I like the snakeskin one best http://2.static.img-dpreview.com/files/news/8207632916/Lunar4.jpg?v=1584 That flash looks baddass with it :)
They only have to glue some snakeskin on the lenses as well and I'll buy it.
Seedeich: After this... which professional photographer wants to use Hasselblad?It might become a reputation disaster.
From a design point of view...The carbon fiber version looks quite cool... if there weren’t these Rolex dials.The lenses look totally out of place.That flimsy pop-up flash on a gold body... ridiculous.Didn’t they have time or competent designers to finish the project if they really want to go the kitsch-route?
Marty, I’m aware of that it’s not targeted at photographers.The problem is, that they do it under the Hasselblad label.Before this, the name Hasselblad was only associated with pro-photo-tools, even if lots of their customers where non-pros, who want to buy into a prestigious label.Now the label Hasselblad is f*** associated with kitsch.Seems to be a great achievement. Grrr.

it's phase detect, not contrast
