PHtorino: This is a terribly lame effort from Olympus. I own OMD-EM1 and EM-5 and a few of the Olympus pro lenses. But there is no way, It would ever replace my Nikon FX DSLRs. I think in the mirror-less world, Fujifilm and Sony has a better future ahead than m4/3. So, making crap videos with fake long arm will bring no good.
And yet you bought 2 OM-D's. lol
Sangster: Not a very flattering portrayal of DSLR user.
Kinda odd that you would buy 2 OMD's with pro lenses. Why not just carry around the Nikon FX and a few lenses everywhere you go? You could even buy a second body as a backup instead of the OMD's and lenses. ;)
Mescalamba: I think actually sooner.. About half time, or even year.
Ummm...phones are not cameras. Now if we cameras could be used as phones, might be different. lol
rrccad: so CIPA shows that there was a bump up on shipping as of Nov 2013. most likely due to sony flipping from SLT to MILC as far as shipping emphasis.
since then, there has been no increase in shipping of MILC's marketshare against DSLR's, fluctuating between 23% and 26%
when you think that includes Fuji, Canon, Sony, Olympus, Kodak, Panasonic, Ricoh, Nikon MILC products and with all the press and positive news and internet fandom - eight vendors share a total of 25% of the marketshare.
Nikon and Canon are quietly taking between then basically the rest of the market - with maybe sony eeking out a few percentage points in SLT's.
Still if you look on Amazon.com - what's the leanding MILC? a 43% discounted NEX-5. even with a 43% dump in price, 4 DSLR's are outselling it.
So yeah. 3 years? doubtful.
The U.S market is the only one that matters. Didn't you know that? ;)
BadScience: not really useful for landscapes which would most benefit from higher resolution; but are taken with long exposures.
As oldfogey rightly says, not only does the camera need to be rock steady (not a problem) the subjet does to - and that is a big problem.
Cant see this being a good idea.
I don't see how adding this feature to a camera is a bad idea. Plenty of objects out there that don't move.
HowaboutRAW: did #1 really have to be cliché softcore?
HowaboutRAW: Her breasts are starting to break free from her clothes? Maybe in your own imagination.Just because someone's face expresses, or looks like it's expressing some form of passion, it doesn't suggest sexual arousal. That is an assumption, and one that could get you into trouble.
Bordering on porn? How? Are you seeing something I'm not? I see a woman wearing a big hat. Are those hats being used for porn now? lol
The only thing I find pathetic about dpreview reporting a rumor, is people complaining about it.
justmeMN: Technical merit aside, in the US, Samsung has a brand problem. $2,799.00 for an off-brand camera? Good luck with that.
Because professionals only shoot a particular brand? lol
nunatak: also ... toiletry bags, pencil, or sunglass cases found at Kohls, TJ Max, Big Lots, Goodwill — offer other stealthy ways to carry small mirrorless systems, w/o tipping people off that you're just another photographer packing uppity Think Tank* gear. JMO.
*from someone who owns his fair share of uppity Think Tank gear. :)
I have to agree. They looking nothing alike, and any thief, scammer or con will see a camera pack coming from a mile away.
I like most of these and I really like the idea of the Readers Showcase. Congrats to those who made it to the top 15.
Awesome buck, and awesome shot!
Beautiful shot! The colors really stand out and nice composition. Congrats.
