Luckily the sensor is small enough that it wont cause those ribbon cables to melt after overheating.

mailman88: And I thought NASA was using Kodak cameras.

I think Kodak is for interplanetary missions, Nikon gear is used almost exclusively on ISS.

Interesting to see how that sensor is mounted to lens assembly.

Good to atleast Hasselblad is adopting the new Usb type-C standard for their cameras. If its full 10Gbps link then it surely will help with tethering and copying those laege files.

Almost the same size as the older GX7 but without tilting EVF.

Thats a big bag, but since this bag exists there must be some market for it.

avicenanw: iFixit? Looks more like uBrokeIt.

In case of modern day digital cameras it might be better to have them serviced at service centre. But in case of other electronics gadgets like tablets, laptops, Aio & cell phones. These ifixit guides are extremely helpful in avoid pitfalls of breaking the gadget for good. For of those devices trip to service centre out of warranty is expensive and spares are overpriced enough to burn a hole in pocket.

Some of their guides especially macbook one have helped in saving my friend a trip to service centre. Those photos help a lot on knowing where the ribbon cables are and how to avoid them and end up with a dead device.

Karl Persson: "Sony emphasizes its compact and lightweight design and indeed, the lens weighs in at a svelte 186g/6.6oz." Size 60x66 mm, according to spec.

That´s compact?

The Nikkor 50/1,8D AF is 38x63 mm and weighs 155g. And that´s a DSLR lens.
The old Nikon E series 50/1,8 is smaller still.
Just as the new Sony they have 6 elements i 5 groups.

Small and compact when it comes to FF Milc is like unicorn. Just stuff of dreams. Even the 50mm f/1.8 lens is bigger than equivalent Slr lenses

Old Cameras: 50/1.8 = good, $249 = great!
70-300/4.5-5.6 = good, $1199 = are you out of your minds?

250$ is too high for a 50/1.8 lens.

Another upgrade, seriously Sony should slow down with upgrade cycles. Its a joke of a consumer electronics company releasing upgrades every couple of months while after sales service is no where to be found.

Chaitanya S: "Extremely short macro working distance" cannot really be a con, this is a wide angle macro lens and not a 180/200mm macro lens for crying out loud. Only idiots will purchase a short focal length macro lens thinking its going to give them large working distance. This lens is similar to the Canon's MP-E 65mm Macro, a specialist piece of kit not to everyone's taste.

I didn't compare it to MP-E 65, read my statement correctly. I just stated that like MP-E 65 this Venus lens is a specialist lens and not everyone who will be purchasing it will appreciate it or be able to take full advantage of. I know the problems involved with close focusing macro lenses, I have a MP-E 65mm in my bag and lighting is a headache at the max magnification.

10cm working distance is fairly standard for macro lenses with focal length of around 60mm. Like @raketman posted please do take a look at photos by Kurt taken using this lens.

On article Accessory Review: Tenba Cooper Messenger bag (78 comments in total)

After having used my friends Maxpedition Mongo S-Type Versipack with Tenba camera insert couple of months back. I know its a very expensive solution but one thats far better than these messenger type camera bags from the point of view of organisation and discretion.

Why use that pre historic 18Mp sensor? Other than that this camera might sell well in Indian market amongst the people who purchase slrs just for improvements over compacts.

If there is no cross patent agreement, it seems like either Sony or Samsung have ripped off Canon's patent and we might have a court battle in coming days.

Those memory card pouches have been available for ages now. I remember a friend of mine got one of the CF/SD combo back in Jan. Pretty decent card wallet.

Pricing is going to key, if it comes bundled with Air1 Commander and is priced reasonably then I am considering this for macro photography. I know a lot of my friend are interested in this flash.
