"current technological advancements"... I'm sorry, I don't see any.
Question to be asked to Fuji and Sony: MF mirror less-fixed lens...
It's impossible to open the site even though the clock has run down to zero, therefore we see impossible...
A webpage that is impossible to access... original idea, Canon...
Ramesh: It was mentioned in "Canon Rumors" that the campaign originated in following IP addresses 22.214.171.124 , 126.96.36.199,both of which are hosted on the same server as Phaseone.com!. Probably canon is entering MF by buying Phase One!
There are rumors since God knows when about Canon entering MF and while I would love to have that to be the case, I highly doubt it.
fnrlampa: Canon is goin to annouce that they are goin into the washing machine business
Might do well for them too :)
DPhotoWriter: Medium format compact mirrorless camera - woot
I wish it, but I don't expect it :(
ManuelVilardeMacedo: I voted "full frame or nothing", though I don't really appreciate the implication of fanaticism that sentence contains. Having used 4/3 for years and dipped a toe or two in APS-C, and having a substancial experience with the real full frame (135 film), I believe full frame is the only way for digital to go. It's better at everything compared to smaller formats. As demand increases, chances are we'll see truly affordable full frame systems very soon. Of course one could go over the top and vote for medium format, but are our computers up to handling such large files? Full frame is actually more sensible than it appears to 1", 4/3 and APS-C users - as long as one doesn't go bananas and buys 36 MP cameras.Some months ago I had the chance to sort a Nikon Df. I fell in love even before holding it. It's such a capable camera! I wish people would look at it without prejudice.
Look! A user posted an opinion! Let's burn him at the stake...
Rick Knepper: I voted for medium format. I would think anyone who has inspected a RAW from this format in recent years and are not blind would have to admit that the IQ is unparalleled by any sensor smaller. Of course, there are many valid reasons to reject MF: price & other costs, capabilities such as high ISO, fps, or portability, and the poor man's complaint: file size.
That makes two of us... while many seems to disagree, affordable relatively compact 50MP fixed-lens camera would be a killer. I think they can build it, just holding it back until they can sell more of their conventional cameras.
alkaabi: i beg to differ; I don't see what is so significant in this show. all old technology in new cases. We where expecting big news; such as new Medium format camera from sony with fixed lens. or new advancement in lens technology or size. or new Leica M (yeh yeh there was new Ms that no one will buy). I mean, nothing, zilch, just another show that adds nothing.
True, I don't like their IQ enough. And what should I use within a price range of less than 5000 USD, might I ask? I think you assume everybody can cash out 10000 on a camera. So many of the users ARE forced to buy APS-C or FF. If Sony or Fuji could come up with an affordable mirror less fixed lens camera THAT would be big news. I feel strange I have to explain it, it's not so hard to understand.
It appears Sony and Fuji will hold up the medium format mirrorless for a few more years, forcing more people buy their lower end stuff.
a "little" quiet? or the most quiet? as in sleepy boring...
pookipichu: I'm hoping for mirrorless medium format with 56 x 42mm sensor (or at least 53.9 x 40.4mm). It would revolutionize medium format and it's not technologically unfeasible. Build it and the buyers will come.
If the price is right, I'm talking about QUEUES in front of camera stores.
Unfortunately they opt to extend this period so that we have to continue buying their smaller sensor cameras for a while more. It would create queues in front of camera stores if they made an affordable, fixed-lens version and a more pro interchangeable-lens version. It is feasible, but marketing strategy stops them from doing it, I guess.
Where is the affordable medium format mirrorless?
I rate the first picture +18.
tom43: Very weak performance of ALL companies for the world’s leading imaging fair. Two boring DSLRs from Nikon and Canon, nothing from Sony, an over-priced Zeiss lens, no new Sigma ART lens, no new Software from Adobe (LR 6?)....
It is boring indeed. I too expected more.
princewolf: I could never get used to the idea of carrying an expensive camera upside down, may be it's just me...
Ummm...yes, they pretty much do, as long as it's a good fit.
Don't get me wrong, I think it's okay if people are happy this way (upside down), but obviously I did not manufacture the camera so I have no idea if this has an adverse effect on the mechanism or not. I may be just paranoid.
I could never get used to the idea of carrying an expensive camera upside down, may be it's just me...
Now that it's out of the hands of the original Kodak, there is some chance it might actually be good. Bad memories about digital Kodaks before.
I'm thinking of buying one. I like Putin...
