Correction man: "Swedish medium-format camera manufacturer Hasselblad "
shouldn't this read "Japanese" Manufacturer (Fuji)" as that is where these lenses are Manufactured and by whom ????as are the camera Bodies also
...Which is the way it is. :-)
A momentous change in the history of photography and mankind alike.
The mask is clearly for snorkeling, the server can also store music, I fail to understand the use of the rest... But wow, that is absolutely cool and revolutionary!!!!
Tenba press release seems a down to earth version of Dpreview article...
Automatically unique shots! Cool!
Same experience here with a humble Fuji X10 thrown out of the window...
Looks like the spent more hours for the press release than for the design of the product.
Btw, thanks Dpreview for spotting another essential product.
With the aim of protecting its loyal customer base, Canon is rolling out a twin faced policy:1) Each single piece of Canon gear shall have dedicated firmware that will expire yearly, thus blocking the equipment. Installation of new firmware will unblock the equipment. Yearly firmware updates shall work on Canon equipment only and shall be available for a symbolic fee.2) Customers shall be able to tell real Canon stuff from the crap by looking for the hologram and for the Canon SafeTag(R) price, which shall automatically stay above USD 1500 independently from any discount made.
Operator: So many "I love this company." posts. Maybe one of you would want to buy my X-E2?
Crappy AF, crappy RAW-support, crappy flash system (onboard and off), overpriced prime lenses, overpriced and huge zoom lenses and now ... left out in the cold with firmware updates (still uses the same sensor with the same electronic like the X-T1).
That's how Fuji X buyers feel in reality after only 1,5yrs of usage. Thx Fuji, but NO thx - I'm out!
@ Operator. ACR is more a faulty product from a monopolist company than a professional tool. If Adobe managed to make you stick to it, then that's your problem. Try Capture one or the simple built in Photo application from Apple and you will be rewarded.
Care for a nice holiday? Want a new car? Your home needs some renovation?
Don't use your money, don't ask your bank! Just go to Kickstarter and have photo enthusiasts pay for it! you do not even need to come with a new idea!
Goodmeme: If you want one, I presume you had better order fast before Hasselblad sue? I'm not a lawyer so would love to be corrected, however the fact that someone is admitting inspiration is like Samsung making an iphone clone and admitting they were copying Apple. Isn't this obvious intellectual property infringement?
I mean, would it not have been safer to claim ignorance of the Hasselblad model and just have created a wooden hand grip which is not a new thing? Or could Fotodiox have a reasonable defence anyway?
I just don't understand why they are referencing Hasselblad; is this brave, ignorant or something else?!
Hasselblad has no cash left for a lawsuit.
massimogori: For a moment I thought it was crap, then saw it is on Kickstarter and found myself relieved.
Seriously, there are thousand of producers of useful accessories that DO EXIST on the market ant that YOU CAN ACTUALLY BUY AND TEST. Still Dpreview prefers to keep an eye on Kickstarter, which demonstrated to be mainly a trap for unsavvy enthusiasts.
Thanks, Nikolausz, for proving my point.

Finally Canon brought us a serious piece of glass that costs less than a camera. It is unfortunate that they had to raise the prices of cameras so much to make that possible.
Poor Maeda-san. He says "speed it" and they don't. He says "sell it" and they decide not to care.
AbrasiveReducer: This move makes sense to me and laying people off is frequently a sign that a company is moving into the big time.
Absolutely normal, Barney. Just picture yourself Amazon noticing the wave in culinary interest worldwide and rebranding your site Durable Pan Review.
I think it is good they are bringing this innovation also to video. As I am aging, I am anxiously waiting for the moment they will bring it to reading glasses, too. Indeed, it would be also the opportunity to lay off some more people.
Together with Autodesk and SAP, Adobe managed to impose to the world a totally unnatural way of doing things and they managed to leverage that to preserve their market position and kill competitors.
They have all my admiration for that.
747 - same price and features as 750, but standard zoom glued on it - price 2% lower than 750, savings from missing bayonet - aimed at the point and shoot user who wants to upgrade and has big pockets (literally)
757 - Hybrid model. Has all the features of 760, but rear dial moves clockwise only.
765 - same feature set as 760, additional processor dedicated to 'Expert Mode". The viewfinder is automatically blinded when composition does not follow golden ratio or visual weight rules. Feature can be turned off. Price increased by 7.3%
M765 - First serious foray of Canon on mirrorless cameras. It is basically a 765 with mirror blocked up. Modification performed manually at selected service centers for a fee covering the scotch tape to block the mirror, specialized workmanship and the M sticker to modify the model name.
