vFunct: These cameras scream for Instagram/Facebook/Twitter integration.
Quick snapshots, easy to use, no massive post-processing needed. No one cares about sensor quality anymore since, they're all good enough now.
If they added the Android integration, they could very well compete against the Cell phone cameras with something like this.
All we ask for is a camera with a small sensor, some decent interchangeable lenses, and Instagram integration.
In the professional world, quickest to publish wins!
VFunct, ur referring to the Leica Monochrome?
Trollshavethebestcandy: Hassy will make a baby leopard skin version and charge 5k more. Buy it now! It's a steal!
nope, thats the job of Leica, a camera that will enable u to take better pictures just by owning one. inspiration counts!
Tom2572: Meh, I'll keep my NEX-5N with 2.3 million dot EVF attachment. At least I can take the EVF off when I need to go any smaller. The pocket is the great equalizer here. Once you can no longer stuff a camera in your pocket it doesn't matter how big it is. The NEX-5N with no viewfinder and the 16mm lens can slip into my pocket. The V2 is not going into anyone's pocket.
the v1/v2 image quality is no match for the NEX 5N. Sensor size sense.
magneto shot: my heart stopped at "4k camera" but then i realized...whats the point of a 4k video that have no shallow DOF. next...
my point is that, with a 4K camera that can do shallow dof, ur looking at a fraction of the price of cameras like Canon 1D-C, C300, BlackMagic, RED Epic/Scarlet. With a 4K camera that is capable of shallow dof, u could replace still photography . Just extract whichever stills that captures the EXACT moment and process it.

stern: uploading a picture is unfortunately impossible:"please wait, submitting"followed all your rules (size, acceptance of terms of trade etc.) - but the beachball keeps on spinning.... any advice? i don't seem to be the only one around here having probs with your upload-form. I use a MacBook with the most current OS, Flash updated.
hmm i downloaded camino....now 5 minutes i am still having the same issue....could it be timing specific....
i tried submitting in chrome....hung at "please wait..." . Started Safari...and still hung....
one day, google apple and microsoft will merge. The renamed organization will be called "Umbrella". Since Bill Gates has a lot of exposure in bio stuffs, the management would decide that Bio tech is the way to go. 5 years later, we have our first zombie apocalypse.
so this is the heart of the hassey culture...duh i tot they have real technical advantages....
didnt olympus read about Sony RX1 ? these all small sensor cams are now obsolete in news...
PhotoPoet: The other day I was considering the Pentax Q, as I already have an S100. Then I walked around Central Park with my D7000 and looked at what others were carrying . I saw many Nikon 1's and other 4/3 cameras. What I got out of that was it looks "weird" and you still have the bulk... a small body, with an oversized lens. Reminds me of an old Sony I had where I carried it by the lens. What is the advantage of the small body if you put a large lens on it? My S100 and D7000 (which takes shots quickly) seem to be all I need. This new "upgrade" seems a bit silly. Not even sure about the Pentax Q anymore... I do not need touch screen on my camera, Wi-fi nice but not a must-have... faster lens, faster shots....
that is because the compromise the CSC strikes on image quality/size is the winning formula.
MEBEE: What shallow depth of field?At 10 feet this lens gives 3.5 feet DOF and that is nowhere near to being shallow!
...the shallow dof is nowhere near the FF....this is nikon's mistake of using a puny 1" sensor. dream on...
magneto shot: Since my brief review of the prototype here, a series of first production models were bought by “testers” for around 60% of the retail price in exchange for feedback. And apparently, the lens has failed in its performance. I saw first hand a loose ring on Todd Hatekayama’s lens. And Facebook is now seeing many complaints regarding the len’s inability to focus at infinity in addition to loose rings.SLR MAGic has been blaming it on packaging in shipping, even when there was no shipping involved. Because of the commotion, Steve Huff, who raved unusually much about the lens and pushed for people to buy of check it out quite heavily on his site, placed an update asking people to hold off on buying.

Fancis,while its perfectly understandable to have issues with new lens, the fact that the company refused to acknowledge it is a big warning sign to any potential buyers. Such culture of using shoddy parts where it cant be seen by customers could only mean that the lens are not built to last, and there is just no confidence on buying from a company this way. Quoting usage from Steve huff or anyone else aint gonna help cause 6 months down the road you will get the same "recommenders" backing out while u already spent ur hard earned cash on it
flipmac: It's interesting that there is no Samnsung NX version. Could be a technical reason as the flange distance of Samsung NX is much longer than other mirrorless and image won't focus. That said, I'm surprised that there is no Canon EF-M version.
Flange distances:Fujifilm X-mount - 17.7 mmSony E-mount / Canon EF-M - 18 mmMicro Four Thirds System - 19.25 mmSamsung NX mount - 25.50 mm
samsung nx mount has no future for market share...canon EF-m has no future for market share...

Slobodan Blagojevic: Has anyone tried to explain to the manufacturer that R in SLR stands for "reflex," i.e., mirror, thus making it just as ridiculous for mirrorless cameras as the whole name itself (otherwise more appropriate for, say, p3nis-enlargement pills)?
so basically buying from canon is idolatry! XD
made in china...and u expect Leica quality.dont jump on new things by new companies and be wary of "buy buy buy" as signaled by some blogger / reviews.
As also mentioned below in one of the comment :http://lavidaleica.com/content/slr-magic-hyperprime-lm-50mm-t095
arthon: So this is a "semi mirrorless design". The light from my motives have to pass through a "semi translucent angled mirror" before the light hits the sensor. With the possibility that the light waves will be bent before they hit the sensor. No thank you! Invent some better real mirrorless design for the focus module.
some speaks out of ignorance and tries to pass it off as intelligence...
Jon Ragnarsson: Sony designs are getting better all the time, I'm actually impressed with the looks of this body, even though I haven't seen it in person. And unlike Canon and Nikon they are not afraid of thinking outside the box. I wouldn't be surprised if Sony were the first company to make a 36x24 (or even bigger?) mirror free camera.
Sad joe , the only folks that are not taking risks nor thinking outside the box is Canon and nikon.
I'm quite a big fan of the Sony Alpha system (and own an Alpha 55) but this body makes no sense to me.Which professional would be jumping on a Sony Alpha FF body just reviewing the line of FF compatible glasses (either from Sony or Tamron or Sigma). There is only a very few as most of those lenses has been designed for APS-C bodies. Why should I limit myself?Are there any plans / rumors for more lenses in the A-mount domain?regards
think leica lens. think voightlander. think samyang. think manual lens. Think peak focusing, think sensor image stabilization.
