no we don't - they might as well have both Sony connectors and all the contacts for normal systems... but then you will have 2 different Cactus V6 devices... and all that because Sony can't stop playing with hot shoe mounts

> I understand from Cactus that a Sony version of the V6 is currently in development, using their new multi interface shoe. Hope it'll be released soon!!

the question is whether Sony version of V6 will have contacts matching non Sony flashes too - otherwise you will be again locked into bying something that couldn't be used with different flashes, from other systems, while the beauty of this V6 is multiplatform support by providing the fullest set of connectors for different systems in one hot shoe, even when different systems are using different subsets of those connectors...

> The Minolta hot shoe on Sony cameras (inherited by Sony from the Minolta purchase) has been replaced -

I kinda have A7 :-), so I know - that does not change the fact that it still requires different connectors to control the power on flash ... so the version of Cactus V6 for Sony shall be physically different from this one, where you can just have a firmware change and set of contacts on hotshoe matches canon, nikon, pentax, olympus/panasonic... Sony only have a central pin matching that - and it is not enough... so Sony made a bad decision for us, users

Bokeh Monk: As a Canadian, I find this offensive! I would have thought that the RCMP would have set up a sting operation or something… but now that the the Federal Gov. has told all these Canada Post workers their all out of a job, it's almost what you'd expect to see, workers 'saving for their retirement!

> RCMP

AKH: Hmm. this is a camera I'm potentially interested in. It looks really great, but I'm sorry to say that the image gallery does not in anyway reflect the high Gold Medal rating - it actually cooled my interest in this camera considerably.

this is what Fuji sensor actually worth = http://home.comcast.net/~NikonD70/Charts/PDR.htm#OM-D%20E-M5,X-T1

In reply to:

bluevellet: Looks like a winner.

But flash synch speed and especially fastest shutter speed should be better in a camera of this class. All those nice, fast primes with Fuji but you either have to stop them down or slap some filters on them to shoot in broad daylight.

E-M1 does 1/400 x-sync with non TTL flash on camera, 1/320 with FL-LM flash, 1/250 with big TTL flashes... how about HSS and remote TTL control on Fuji ?

Ben O Connor: How come a "fujisensor" cam can be rated higher than micro 43 cam. in spesific areas.

There is the ultimate art director of M43 ; Olympus E-M1
There is the amazing movie director of M43; Panasonic GH-3

And does fuji better than those two in spesific areas such as ... almost all areas ? COME ON !!

Absolutic: IS -4EV only at central point, similar to how Canon 6D -3EV is only at center, or at other points as well? this could make a difference.

not at all - for example Panasonic GX7 (m43 camera) = http://www.panasonic.com/nz/consumer/cameras-camcorders/lumix-g-mirrorless-dslm-cameras/dmc-gx7gn.specs.html

"...AF detective range EV -4 - 18..."

Sony just managed to repeat what Panasonic did a long time ago and with much smaller sensor

Marty4650: Does anyone else notice how young these Japanese camera company executives are?

This is really good news for the industry. A very positive sign that they are not stuck in the past, but willing to fully embrace the future.

We old people might know a lot of stuff, but we are too comfortable with the status quo, and too reluctant to change things. So I see this as as boding well for the future of the industry.

> Does anyone else notice how young these Japanese camera company executives are?

he is a (co)owner, not hired executive... that's different.
