RedFox88: So much for that supposed build quality of Fuji EVIL cameras. So what do you get for their extreme cost? Clearly Dslrs are where to go for durable cameras.
Fuji x-t1 is WEATHERproof not WATERproof and never claimed to be anything else....the 10-24mm lens is neither.Not sure where you get the "EVIL" from? Have you had a bad experience with Fuji?Finally, this is a story taking care while shooting because it could have had a tragic ending.
Sports Shooter: where can you find his story??? I see no link above
Clicking on the images doesn't seem to work (on my browser anyway) but the photographer documented his accident in the Fuji slr/x-system forumhttp://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/54139785this is probably where DPreview editors found the story.
RichRMA: Anyone looking at this would be advised (if high definition is their goal) to look into an alternative, custom apochromatic telescopes from Companies like AstroPhysics (U.S.) APM in Germany or TEC in Colorado. They'll provide better images (or at least as good) as the Canon for about 1/8 to 1/4 of the price. But it's likely a well-heeled collector will grab up the Canon.
but you would need an adapter and you won't have autofocus.I don't know who Canon originally made these for but the fact that only 20 (rumored) were made indicates that it's a niche market :) .. you've mentioned collectors but I don't see that there would be many of those either
Snikt228: 1200MM is old news.
I can't tell if you being sarcastic or misinformed, Snikt228? The story you linked to was about a 5200mm Canon prime of which only 3 were made, not the 1200mm in the DPrev story above.
Alec: Since when spy satellites don't count as digital cameras in space?
Early signals from satellites and space probes (eg voyager1 and 2) my have been TV signals not digital
Attractive design but for about $3 on eBay I bought a pack of 10 lens cap savers which are nothing more than self-adhesive buttons attached to an elastic band. It would cost me $70 to save the same number of lens caps with the HxT.Then again it might appeal to some who value style over just practicality. Nothing wrong with that if you have the money.
Ian J G: Just in terms of materials I wonder how much it would cost to print something like that? I mean when you already have the design.
This seems to be a "proof of principle" experiment....Question: Can we make a film camera with a 3D printer.Answer: Yes.
No other factors like cost effectiveness have been taken into account.
I wonder how far off they are from comercial development
SammyToronto: Is it edible too?
haha funny :DOrganic means carbon-hydrogen based, eg benzene is also organic (one for the science geeks)
Funny, I was about to make a comment in the forums on how there haven't been any new lens reviews lately and then I read this :)Nice. Looking forward to its return.
The deadline is listed as 11:59:59pm PT. What's PT -which country? DPReview has an international audience, wouldn't it be easier to list at deadline time in GMT?
tkpenalty: Love all the spec-sheet warriors here, because totally, having a max sensitivity of ISO1600 means that the camera is worse than a D800.
Okay sure, it is very expensive and maybe a bit overpriced. But seriously? Comparing it to a D800?
Agree with tkpenaltyIf megapixels and apparent max iso is all people are worried about then the nokia purview might be the camera/phone they want.This Leica might have a riduculously high price but they are aiming for a niche professional market. Leica wouldn't be making many of them so they would be limited in how low they can sell them for to recover costs and make a profit.
Yanko Kitanov: Will it do for posting shots on facebook?
instagram maybe :p
