bubblyboo: Looks like the A6300 scared both Nikon and Fuji./s
More like the withdrawal method.
kodachromeguy: What has happened to the Leica T"? I see an occasional (quite rare) photograph attributed to the T on the Leica forums, but otherwise it seems to have fallen off the face of the earth. I do not recall ever seeing one in popular tourist places (San Diego, Chicago, Athens, etc.). It's a pity.
Your divorce lawyer, obviously.
What’s that? Some kind of “morning after” pill?
Is that why you’re a former Leica owner?
Leica guys don’t like its lack of an optical viewfinder or the small size of its sensor. They don’t suck at life, however, so price is not an issue.
maxnimo: Seriously, if this camera was pink with a Hasbro label it might make sense. All those sharp edges look positively ridiculous ... laughable actually. But then, I would never endanger my child with such sharp edges, which to me makes this camera unacceptable for either children or adults. So who is it for ... clowns?
The good news is that children can sometimes rise above poverty and poor parenting.
Neodp: Toy. Glorified (good looking) toy. Where's the beef?
The beef comes from the photographer.
chkproductions: Slap a square lens shade on a camera and you immediately increase its perceived value by 20%
I thought those round vented lens hoods were the cool ones.
greypixelz: too bad it's not fullframe or as tiny as the original pen was... :P
*flame on ;))*
Of course, the original Pen wasn't full frame either. It was half frame.
WesternSage: I liked Sam's description of the optical viewfinder helping with timing of shots, HCB would be happy!
I enjoy the quick raw videos, keep it up you guys.
(I also enjoy seeing Seattle, I miss her).
You’re right. I’ve never met such a person.
Roland Karlsson: Rangefinder style? The original pen-f was SLR. And this thing has no range finder. Why rangefinder style? It does not even look like a camera with a range finder. This looks like a modern, somewhat more chunky, version of the original pen-f. It is actually beautiful. But, range finder?
Every rangefinder I have ever seen looks enough like a Leica to make me do a double-take, so there’s that. Similarly, I don’t own a smart phone, but every smartphone I see looks to me like an iPhone.
This same thing has happened over and over again throughout history. One company solves the problem, and the others all copy it.
WT21: The service will be available until Adobe decides they have a better idea. Then it will disappear.
WT21 said, “The service will be available until Adobe decides they have a better idea. Then it will disappear.”
True, if nobody uses it. However, if enough people use it, it’ll remain available and be enhanced. Standard Operating Procedure for all evil corporate entities.
Okay, I agree with that. I have a big nose, so for me, one of the key benefits of rangefinder-style cameras is that the viewfinder is in the corner.
The Vectis and the RD3000 were awesome rangefinder-style cameras.
Oh brother. Okay, call it rangefinder-style.
To look like a rangefinder it would need to have, at the very least, rangefinder-style windows on the front. Instead, this thing is styled like a popular SLR from the past. One shaped like a rectangular brick with no grip and a flat top, yes, but with no actual rangefinder-style features. That makes it SLR-style, ya dingus.
Do you even know what a rangefinder is?
EDIT: I was replying to that dingus, straylightrun. Anyway, as the Olympus Pen F showed, SLRs don’t always have prism bumps. But rangefinders do always have those telltale rangefinder windows.
Except that this one is styled to look like the Olympus Pen F, an SLR.
Today’s parlance is for monkeys.
Anyway, I think this is a great looking camera. I especially like the, uh, “rangefinder style” silver and black model.
This site is ridiculous. Rangefinder this. Rangefinder that. Yet the only actual rangefinder cameras currently in production get mentioned seemingly only to lure out en mass the Leica-hating weasels whose crazed eyeballs then boost ad views. Or something. What was the last actual rangefinder that DPReview even bothered to review? The M8 from 2007?
