Cameron R Hood: What a shame; they make GREAT stuff. Been a big fan since the film days.
Maybe someone can pick up their product line and equipment and continuing making stuff.
Potemkin_Photo: You've just been "Hasselbladded!"
Thumbs down, I was counting on grip handcrafted from endangered redwoods. Come on, Nikon, you needz ta keep up wid da bling game.
You've just been "Hasselbladded!"
"Hasselbladding it" will soon become industry slang.
Stephen Scharf: Wow, $2000 for what is essentially a bracket that couples a lens to a back.
ROFL! Some Chinese company will reverse manufacture this for $15 tomorrow and sell it on Ebay. ROFL!
Maybe you should do an impossible campaign x 2.
I'm sure it'll help your bottom line.
Paul1974: Someone is going to get fired. That camera sucks when compared to competing brands.
Double ROFL!It's like Canon blew off its foot with a shotgun and then decided to shoot down its airborne appendage just to make a point. But management hasn't realized that the point is 180 degrees reverse of what everyone wants.
This and projects like the Axiom are the future.
One can already hear the sounds of moribund dinosaurs like Canikon buckling their knees and crashing into the Jurassic dirt.
the snooze button, the panic button... the direct print button version 3. Yes!
Valiant Thor: Their advertising copy has a strong, negative, condescending edge to it. They could have just said something like "Those that believe that something is impossible should get out of the way of those of us who are already doing it."
It's almost as if they had been reading all of our comments and gotten butthurt. Haha!
If that's the case, you know the saying "You reap what you sow," and that scythe is swinging down quick for Canon unless they get up off that lazy couch and start working!
Canon buys ALL the remaining camera companies so that they can dribble out warm-overs at Photokina for the next 100 years and raise prices 25% with each upgrade.
mpgxsvcd: Why did it take so long to replace the EOS 7D?
We drug our feet because we knew people didn’t want to replace all of their lenses. It seemed to work pretty well. All of the customers complained but they still bought our cameras in the end. We followed the Apple model on this and we will continue to do that in future.
DPR is always so restrained on these interviews. How about a direct question, like, "Yo, Maeda, you used that SONY sensor in the GX7, didn't you?"Make them speak some hard truths rather than advert boilerplate!
Also, it's inevitable that this will be marketing boilerplate for the makers. DPreview is no longer an independent site.
Cow-towing? Or Kowtowing?I didn't people still towed cows. :)
But I agree: no variangle touchscreen and no EVF = major FAIL.
0.1 x as good.
What a ridic price.
They should have make another deal with SONY and used the SONY sensor for this as well. It'd be a 2-fer with the little sony sensor for the new G and another one for the 7D. But... they didn't ... lame.
Boomanbb: Hard to believe the complaining is still going on. Sounds like most people want a full frame 4k swiveling screen $1000 camera that connects to facebook and weighs only 4oz. Funny all the talk about the M4/3 cameras and their impressive specs but no mention of the lens they will be using with them. I cannot wait to put my 70-200mm f2.8 lens on this and crank the iso above 3200 so the indoors finally open up to cleaner images. Not to mention the extra reach that 1.6x crop does for me. Fast AF and high quality super responsive zoom lens are the other half of the equation for many of us stills shooters. For everyone else, you got your 6D and your 5DMKIII... give the sports shooters a break!
Well 5 oz was my cut off but close enough :).
Canon just needs to slash the entry price in 1/2.
