PrebenR: There is not a single enthusiast compact in that list.
So what are X100S, Ricoh GR, Sigma DPxM cameras? Professional compacts?
There is not a single enthusiast compact in that list.
Unimpressive. Sony makes fancy gadgets other companies makes cameras it seems.
Reminds me of the first mFT prototype from Olympus in 2008.
Why is it that some camera makers can only make their cameras more ugly with the Limited editions? Leica (apart from a couple), Pentax, Nikon, Ricoh, Olympus.
What is the purpose of a small camera when the lenses are huge? I'm stating to see why Leica is so unique...
Sea water or fresh water?
jkoch2: Since few folks will have a PC with the spec to edit 4k video, it would be nice if the camera came equipped with basic on-board editing software one could operate, using an ordinary PC or tablet as the interface, as well as a 4k screen. Existing PCs with 4k displays probably have a hard time processing or rendering anything beyond 4k still images.
Why would you get a 4K camera if you cannot edit it afterwards? Better get a 2.5K or less camera if you cannot handle 4K. This is not for hobbyists.
I remember the comments when D4 came with XQD support that XQD didn't have a future. I guess the opinion is turning now with RAW video and 4K video?
GodSpeaks: No different than the lens firmware updates Sony, Panasonic, Olympus etc do. In thier case, the lens is attached to the camera body for the firmware update.
Sigma is not in a position to do that, so they created their own cheap pseudo body lens cap to facilitate lens firmware updates.
Better than having to send the lens back to Sigma for a firmware update. N'est-ce pas?
Neither Sony, Panasonic nor Olympus does focus adjustments for your camera through firmware releases? You completely missed the point of this dock.
So when will you review the DP Merrill cameras?
FTW: If I read this interview, Leica includes in their camera now the same stuff that all other brands have to be able to do what all others do. Now, screw this thing down to 2100$, what it is worth, and I will buy one, promise, even if it has no AF. For me there is already too much in it.
Why should they make it affordable to you?
zodiacfml: To me, its only their Monochrom that makes sense including its price. See, many M9 users convert their photos to BW. It makes sense because the M9 color photos doesn't stand a chance to any competition. Now I understand why they have live view and video, for rich people who can't properly use a rangefinder.
I guess this is a good direction, they're being less stubborn, and hopefully cater to passionate photographers with reasonable prices in the future which surely translate into more lens sales.
Which competition? Leica's colours are superior to any system apart from Sigma Foveon.
Wish I had the money to get a Leica now. One day I will...
Henry M. Hertz: is there anything that seperates it from LR?or is it just a poor mans LR?
i don´t see anything in this announcement that impresses me.
Speaking of money and Adobe.... Some licensing changes seems to spring to mind....
