2001: The only thing that really stands out for me is the screen. knowing what it's really like would be great. Let's hope ppi doesn't become another variation of the megapixel myth. That said, aside from being woefully incapacitated in terms of external storage, tablets can be very useful as external monitors, and viewing editing and emailing photos. Tablets may give photographers wings but steal the sky with slow wireless uploads and tiny storage.
I refuse to buy a device like this that does not include an SD slot. Its only omitted so that consumers can be squeezed out of $40 for 16GB extra internal memory.
Oh, this is the cat's whiskers!
Nikonworks: Is that a 'filmy' substance on the lens hood or is it smugged?
I can understand the 'Leica mentality'.
I don't see any possibility for a 'Hassy mentality' for a camera like this,a re-packaged consumer camera (although one of the best).
I think I know what that 'filmy' substance you refer to may be, if the reactions here are anything to go by.
mpgxsvcd: Not only did they have the Gaul to create the camera but they even "forcefully defended" the camera. Now they are actually making the camera. It is almost like they are trying to spite every potential customer they could ever have.
They could have just never come out with it and everyone would have forgotten about it.
deleted_081301: "Swedish camera manufacturer Hasselblad is finally shipping the 'Lunar'."
Hasselblad LONG AGO ceased to Manufacture Cameras... and long ago ceased to be SWEDISH .....Most of thier Cameras are made in Japan by Fuji as are the lenses for them
Now they are rebadging SONY's with a wood Veneer
Never mind offending the Swedes. Anyone with eyes would be offended by this. Whoever made this couldn't design his way out of a paper bag.
ianbrown: This has to be a joke, I thought it was April 1st
Who would want to carry a drinks cabinet around with lens attached?
Especially one containing no Single Malt, or even a drop of Port - only a dry Sony sensor.

Thank you Franciscus. At least the Pope has good taste and will not be buying this.
Delacosta: Shakespeare said it best: A fool and his money are easily parted.
You can never be too careful in the choice of your parents.

BobYIL: All jealous hearts here!!... I have ordered a left-hand version of it, handle made of curly Bubinga wood for $17.000 only.
Brilliant! All photo frames should be branded with the name of the camera maker. Everyone knows that the more expensive your camera is, the better the picture must be.
GPW: Nikon D800E, nuff said!
@ Wye Photography...
Are you saying that Paris Hilton is not a "real" photographer? Oh, the insult!
I'm confused.....are you saying this camera was created by a Gaul? I thought production was all in Viking hands.
ryansholl: It WILL change how humans interact.
Namely, the frequency of people randomly being spraypainted in the face will skyrocket.
I can actually see 'Glassholes' becoming the commonly accepted name for wearers of this device! Might want to copyright that word ;-)
mpgxsvcd: We have much bigger issues in the world than copyright claims. I am not saying that we shouldn't try to stop it. I am just saying that it shouldn't be our number 1 priority.
Skönt att höra att ingen katt kommit till skada under denna debatt! (jfr. med Schrödingers katt)
Angående perspektivet på hela händelsen, så tycker jag Shakespeare sa det bäst:
"Much ado about nothing" ;-)
Fatality: She wasn't rude, she was angry that some scumbag stole her work and used it for commercial purposes, to make money out of her work!
Photography can be very expensive -shooting location, models, hairstylist, makeup artist, light assistants, props, dresses etc etc... and when some scumbag offers you 40$-160$ for your work when he gets caught, is just pure insult!
What's even worse, is having your work associated with incredibly cheesy or tacky product/service.. Imagine a McDonalds clown wearing a Gucci dress or Ducati brand on some junk bicycle from China.. Such use lowers the value of the artist and their work. The way they used her photo, it looks as if it comes from a "Joe's DVD Clipart Collection".
Fatality wrote:"So according to you theft is considered "professional behavior", and the use of the word "scumbag" is not.. You need to check your priorities.."
...And you need to check your understanding of what we are talking about here. Copyright infringement is not "theft".
You equate the two terms in your own mind, presumably out of a sense of moral outrage. The law, which ultimately decides these matters, does not.
Vibrio: radio station was wrong in the first place and photographer was being greedy.
Agreed. 'Nuff said.
Deleted pending purge: There is no way to legalize theft, except in a (theoretical) community where thieves prevail. Until such time, any and all creative works and products belong to their authors, unless sold for money or some other means of recompensation has been arranged.Yes, maybe the lazy, the uncreative, and freeloaders would like it different, but people still get paid for their work in order to live, and the World hasn't gone completely nuts - yet. :)
The aggressive suing of everyone left, right, and centre for ridiculous sums of money is a very American pursuit. I would not consider it to be any part of "civilization".
nwind: She was very unreasonable and rude. Radio station behaves properly and very politely in they response to the situation.
So copyright infringement is "no different" from stealing a car?
Excuse me, but did you graduate from Harvard or Yale? Your detailed knowledge of the law is amazing.
Yes, I would definitely consider someone eating my cat as way more serious than Copyright infringement. Forget notions of compensation. The death penalty would not be enough for such a criminal.
I sincerely hope that your cat is alive and well and has NOT suffered such a fate.
