arhmatic: Not advocating for retro, but anyone can tell why the content of this camera cannot fit into a Nikon F2 sized body?
I know it's digital, but no sarcasm... serious question. Thanks!
@TacticDesigns true with Minolta, but comparing the D100 vs D500, over a period of 14 years, I am not impressed. The styling and bulk of the camera is worse IMO...
If I may, an honest (not sarcasm please) question of industrial design --- the GPS module (not that I necessarily need one) GP-1, is an external dongle. With mobile devices, it's dot sized and incorporated. Any reasons for that, other than $ greed and/or lack of interest in innovation?
Thanks all. Yes, there is a list of parts that need to go in, but there is also a similar lists for smartphones... Look at how fat phones were a decade ago. DSLR never slimmed down. And I know, you need bulk to be able to hold, but F2 served the same function... - around your neck, not in a bulky backpack.Thanks again, very helpful.
Thanks! What about it terms of height and width?

KrisAK: My Canon AE-1 35mm SLR has a massive optical viewfinder...the biggest I've ever used. And yet, dimensionally, it's only a few millimeters wider than an A7 series camera, and actually a bit thinner. With a 28mm FD lens, it's remarkably portable.
At what point in digital camera history did FF DSLRs feel the need to bloat into their current form?
Why can't there be a digital AE-1?
Hard to believe that toy can't fit a DSLR into a body the size of the AE1. If not the top of the line pro DSRL, what about the smallest canon?
Either way, canon and nikon are both dead to me.
Hard to understand how and why Amazon and other retailers feature cameras with such irrelevant headlines.
Example"Pentax 645Z 51MP SLR Camera with 3-Inch LCD- Body (Black)"
So it's got 51mp and it's a SRL. Amazing! But 3-inch and black? is this worthy of a headline? I mean, I am in the market for a $6000 camera and you try to get my attention with the size of the LCD - which is really standard everywhere.
arhmatic: In unrelated "news" - I predict that we will eventually get the D6 in the coming years...
The D6 will be even faster, better, sharper, etc than the D5. Take my word for it.

...and hopefully, with larger batteries. hope to also see the race for slim devices dead. Apple, please...
The entire idea of "camera bags" is dead to me. this is really a thief magnet and nothing else. Just get any bag you want ant fit it with padding per your needs.
All these viewers need an 1:1 button.
I disagree. You are undemining the impact of the photo with some random titles.
"Arc de Triomph"? WHY? You are in Greenland, stay in Greenland. If you like Paris that much, go there. I see no point in having eyes on Greenland, while my mind is set to Paris.
arhmatic: I expect a lens at least as great as the older 35mm 1.4 which I own.But I need to say - odd design. Is there a reason for this lens to use 43mm thread, as opposed to 52, like the old one? OVF view is not a strong enough reason, with EVF so prevalent.
Long conversation here, but just to state my preferences - even if the optical design only requires 43mm, I would have put a 52mm... just for the sake of consistency and easiness...
Much appreciated, Fujifilm!
Oh, the little details like the built in GPS... this should be mandatory, everywhere.

arhmatic: DSLR? I am a little skeptical.
I happen to have the previous model from Manfrotto, and I can tell it's not strong enough to hold my mirrorless... THe legs are fine, but the ballhead just can't keep balance with a little heavier lens. What this might need is a tension screw, so you can tighten this under heavier lenses. Again, all I have is Fujifilm Mirrorless. DSLR is even heavier.
@Eelco The video looks compelling. The 7D is also larger, so it balances out the weight of the lens better. Mirroless cameras are smaller and lenses (slightly) smaller, so not as well balanced. This could be the reason...
My Pixi is not broken and saw very little use. It's well made and almost impossible to break. But the ballhead could definitely use a tension screw.
@ Eelco - I do place one leg in front of the lens, and it's not holding it... This is Fujiflm with 10-24mm. If I happen to use the 55-200 - not a chance.
Bring them to Fujifilm!
