petermoons: too bad they forgot to make it an L-plate.
my apologies for spoiling the party.
why? because i find an L-plate a very convenient tool to use. i think the increase in size is irrelevant, since you would be using that combo on a tripod only.
too bad they forgot to make it an L-plate.
you are quite right sir. out it goes.but not just yet.
f64manray: Why not go truly retro and get rid of the LCD screen on the back of the camera and not allow the user to see his photos until they're loaded into photoshop at home. Now that's photography for the passionate photographer. At least that's how it was when I was a passionate photographer.
This seems more like a cam for modern digital photographers to feel like they're old school. NOT even close boys.
>>Only if you had no idea what you were doing.
NCB: I've long been hankering for a digital camera like this. In shape it closely resembles my Yashica FX3 Super 2000, a beautifully made, compact and light, basic metered-manual SLR which, partnered with a Zeiss 50mm f/1.7 lens, is probably my favourite camera. Although I used my pretty good Nikon F601 more, because Nikon 's lenses were more affordable than Zeiss.
So I have the lenses. Critical things will be size, weight and price. But most of all, it has to deliver top image quality. To live up to these videos, it has to deliver that quality straight out of the camera, and you have to have the confidence that it will deliver that. "Pure photography" isn't about playing around in Photoshop.
apologies for my rude reply. too impulse. won't happen again.

RuthC: Host, how full do you wish the female body to be? Are you looking for large, or extra-large ladies? :-)
RStyga: Very impressive shot but I feel that it has been heavily post-processed; half-photo half-graphics. I was there 1-2 months ago and this barely resembles it.
i agree, i'm not a member of the sooc club. all my photos are "victims" of some kind of processing, some more others less. i really do think that most photos benefit from at least a minor contrast and brightness adjustment.
what i did in this shot is not very different from what i could and would have done in a good old fashioned dark room printing b&w photos.
what i'm asking myself right now is, where do you draw the line? when is a photograph still a photograph and when does it become a photography-based image? are only sooc images photographs or is a small amount of processing allowed? quite tricky to determine.
okay. if you say so.
 i had a look at your gallery and i understand your point now. no need to tell me that my photo is impressive, if you dont mean it though. i can take it if people don't like what i shoot. cheers.
yes? and your point being?
can't believe some idiot gave your shot half a point.
:) immediately knew whose shot this was when i saw that 8mm focal length.
congrats. that is a beauty.
Nikonworks: Most retailers hold a straight forward 'Inventory Sale', of which this article clearly seems to be, except the straight forward part.
DPReview please take notice:When I was a kid 'slot cars' were the newest and 'biggest' thing.Stores opened up just with slot car race tracks. It was fantastic but very short lived because the market place became overloaded with slot cars and accessories to the point the kids could not keep up with the market.The whole market folded like a deck of cards.
Of late, you, the editors are doing the same thing here at DPReview.You have too many Final Reviews to post before listing 'Old cameras under $1000'. You are reaching in all directions, phones, tech, cameras, etc.You are making this site unwieldly and soon ambiguous.
You better get together and focus on your mission.
At the same time you can discuss formally thanking me for my 'Real World Samples' suggestion.
my my mr.britton ... no wonder dpr is such a volatile place at times.
