Svetoslav Popov: Wow, what happened to modern ergonomic design? This is not only one ugly body, i bet it hurts in the hands. Great functionality though.

funny, instead of reading and imagining...i actually owned one and didnt find the controls a bothered.
i did switched back to FF recently and my reasons in : www.marcuslowphotos.com but ergonomic wasnt one of them

Dimit: I fancy those evolutionary steps of Sony..something new all the time!
Frankly,we were all convinced that no on sensor stab.-not even imagine 5 axis-could exist in a ff mirorless!...Bingo !!

i have shaky hands, always did. there was once i shot in a club, at 1/8 on olympus with 5 axis and got a sharp clear shot.
thats crazy given my track record of getting anything less than 1/50 non shaky from handheld. now sony have the most important feature in olympus....

rsf3127: Very nice upgrade from Sony.

But I believe Sony should listen more to their customer base in order to become a major player in the upper bracket of the photographic equipment market.

Why doesn't Sony show some respect for the A7 owners delivering a nice firmware update along with the new model? That would be awesome!

There are a few things that I would like to have. For instance: if I set Clear Zoom, I want it to become fixed if I turn on and off the camera, unless I change it again. That would be very easy in a future firmware.

I would also like to be able to set MF magnification in a single click of a button. Nowadays, it is a double click process (it was better in the NEXes).

Stabilized primes would also be a plus, even if the new bodies will have IS. That would show respect for early adopters of their FF mirrorless bodies.

I could not care less for the apps that where the main focus of the last firmware, although they may be of some importance for some user.

5 axis trumps oss anyday. its a good trade

totally pimped! Give me 2 pls, a platinum and rose gold. I need one to screw on the front of the car, to replace that horse emblem. The other looks great on the "thinking man" statue outside my house.

Matt1645f4: May be Pentax needs to get some crowdfunding (just as Panono did) to get their "Full-Frame camera" into production? Go one Pentax try it and see how much you could raise and at the same time see how many of us Pentaxians want FF.

Just please don't go OTT with the colours, what you've done with the K3 in enough Black, Silver and Titanium is all thats needed ..............

didi baev.....aw.....i tot u went for nikon 1....

magneto shot: LCD'less is one of my wish list. My other was setting a possible shots of only 36,64,128. Limitations such as these gives u all the glory and film shooting experience, makes u a better photographer definitely without the fuss of film development.

its should be built in, maybe not even requiring SDcard. just limit it by the built in memory for the said 36,64,128.
@iudex, u can say all u want about self imposing limits, if that works, we would have all been perfect creature built upon layers and layers of perfect habits by choice. Fact is, we aint. Try doing what u wrote there and go for a shooting event, see if u can resist those parameters imposed by urself.

RStyga: To complete the joke we need the price:
http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1083146-REG/leica_10779_m_typ_240_edition.html

$18.5K

To be fair, I have to admit that it is a beautiful choice of design and materials, though, for a collectible.

technology is not everything, some folks appreciates craftmanship and better forms. tools have the tendency to inspire even if the result might not be anything. Quirks yes, but u can't fault leica for having the balls to come up with something different and yet profit from it. Imho, we need more sony and leica types of manufacturers than nikon and canon.

gives me a very dated feeling looking at it. something like g10 or so. sometimes the form needs to be inspirational. learn from leica.

Mauro.B: I hope they nailed auto white balance, as in my M240 it is still the weakest link. And offer exposure compensation on the back dial, too.

Well, considering that 99,999% of Edition 60's will spend their life behind glass, my comment is totally useless.

the whitebalance on xvario is pretty accurate, in fact, probably the most accurant WB i ever tried on any system. Wondered why that was never carried to the M level.

On Samsung NX1 First Impressions Review preview (912 comments in total)

oh yeah, another gear with projectile GAS infector, luckily i still feel more inspired shooting the GW690II brick. It doesn't have 8 frames per seconds, but it does do 8 frames per roll.

they should hire me for the camera part.
Faster autofocus would not make any sense unless it can track the subject for video. As of now, its already fast for normal photos shoot, doubling the AF means nothing.

Some suggestions on Iphone 7
- Swipe-able lens, eg 21 mm -> 35 -> 85
Just swipe the lens behind and u get a diff focal length. 21 would do well not just on landscape but on selfie/group. It has natural slimming distortion.

- Infrared photography - nothing is more mind boggling than providing a simple feature to expand the user's creativity. Infrared is easy to implement on cameras and should be built in

Apple, call me ok - marcuslowphoto@yahoo.com ;-)

Ian M.B.: What a JOKE!

The world has gone crazy! The photo wouldn't exist without the photographer setting it all up on his equipment then encoraging the macaque to press the shutter. . It's definitely his shot and all copyright should be HIS. . . If not his then whose?

I repeat myself. . What a JOKE!

should have used film. the photographer develop it.

magneto shot: these photos became popular because :
- the claim that the monkey stole the camera and took the images. for some reason while this notion was propagated back then, Slater didnt dispute it?

Now that wiki uses that loophole to challenge copyright, suddenly i am reading website article by the author that he setup the scene and allowed the monkey to play with the cameras.

Moral of the story. Careful how u want to spread the news, it could backfire

the earliest publicatio, dailymail for eg, where did they get the story and why was it not disputed
