JulesJ: Interesting, but the slow startup is not so great.

But it looks great, doesn't it!

Eelco van Vliet: I have been reading Dpreview since the beginning, but this is cheap journalism and totally unnecessary. What has gotten into the mind of the author to start this cheap bashing on Leica over a missing battery.

If only they would have been this brave to Nikon over their D600. Now that would have been a proper statement.

Now in return you must write a full detailed review on this camera and finish the Pana DMC-FZ1000 review. And don't you dare to tag it with Humor again...

Nobody's bashing Leica branded Panasonics. It's the people that buy them that we find amusing.

GSD_ZA: Another red dot for those with more money than understanding

Some people prepared to pay a premium just to have the red Leica dot on their camera even if they could buy a similar or better product of another brand for half the price.

andix: This is as useful as an umbrella to a fish.

Imagine how much fun a fish could have with an umbrella. It may not advance the fish's ability to survive in the deep ocean, or to become a brain s(t)urgeon, but hey, what's a fish's life to be without the occasional frivolity.

If this were a fair representation of the city, I'd say things were looking bleak. The photographers need to get out more.

Very ordinary amateur photography

Hooray! They've found a use for the "1" system.

We've come to expect great ideas and great products from Sony. These are no exception. The stumbling block will be what is the single biggest problem with all smartphones: battery life.

Hasselblad: Once considered the archetype of photographic equipment. Now nothing more than an ugly fashion accessory. How the mighty do fall.

Yet another excellent Freniac Grip.

Richard, what are you going to do when manufacturers eventually wake up to the concept of ergonomics? There are so many soap-bar cameras out there that benefit hugely from a simple finger grip, which neither makes a camera ugly nor bulky.

On Canon Powershot S110 Preview preview (103 comments in total)

If you buy this camera, be sure to order a Freniac grip for it. Without one, it is a bar of soap.

On Hasselblad responds to Lunar criticisms article (628 comments in total)
In reply to:

zoomf: What is shocking is that so many naysayers here do not recognize the stunning Italian design features presented. This was created by professionals for the 1% who understand this " is a celebration of the passion". Perhaps if you owned a fine automobile or any quality good for that matter you would see this Lunar dangling proudly around your neck.

Thank goodness only 1% have more money than sense.

gustabod: OK, we've critisized the thing to oblivion, now let's give Hassy a hand and offer suggestions on what they SHOULD have done instead (as pointed out by someone earlier research didn't come into this). Me, I would have taken the NEX 7, a few minor control changes (better buttons whatever) added "tuned by Hasselblad" or "Hasselblad Edition" or something like that on the front and sold it for 2 grand.

And the savy among us would go out and purchase an NEX-7.

Just like Kodak, Hasselblad will fall off the edge of existence if they are unable to innovate and retain their niche in the high end of pro studio equipment. For them to be literally destroying their brand with this ugly, consumer oriented Lunacy thing, is something that should cause heads to roll in the company.

I own an S95, and have fixed the ergonomics with a Freniac grip. I expect Freniac will make money out of this one too.

Other than to accommodate the super-zoom thing, I don't understand why they are still putting such minuscule sensors in these cameras.
