"...Is the M Monochrom Typ 246 an anachronism or a modern marvel?..."
It's a marvelous modern anachronism
I would love not to buy those cards, but for this to happen they'd have to show up on the US market first.
Superb shot, but too bad the guy and everything around him are made out of Lego bricks. Or is it the forum software ?
Yooo :D :D :D
I recognize these chops ! This is the guy who declared five or six years ago that "Two years from now Olympus will no longer build dslrs, only mirorless cameras", starting a bushfire and prompting official denials from Olympus :)
Listen carefully to everything will happen within the next couple of years, it will happen in the next six :)
steelhead3: the British have so little in the way of great Art through the ages, they thought it necessary to rob foreign lands of their treasures by military force.
...And gave many of said lands in return whatever they use as civilization (if any) nowadays.
Wow !!! Now THAT'S Relevant information !!!
According to the same (type of) statistics, the Ford Crown Victoria in yellow) is the most owned car in New York city. It must be the best car ever :-D
DPR, you're joking, right ?!?
Do you feel there's like a standard missing in your "Round up" ?
Mescalamba: Its just delamination. Glue used had some unforseen characteristics. And it showed after a long time (I heard about this only about year ago, those cameras are out for much longer).
While its bad, Leica knows it and replaces for free so, no reason to fuss..
I also remember Nikon D600 "spot-less" sensor and Nikon D800 very accurate AF sensors (particulary those on left). And lets not forget some pixel which are sometimes bit hot white in D810. Oh and dont we have some cameras which leak a bit of light now and then today?
Most of these took manufacturers pretty long to admit and it took way shorter time then years to show. So who is without guilt, can throw.. you know. None of those "big names" is.
I don't know what you remember about the other manufacturers - what I remember is that once acknowledged (or once fixed by third parties/home tricks in the case of the light leaks) - the solution/fix is PERMANENT.
Here, the problem is expected to be recurrent - at least with the current fix. And this with the one and only product supposed to almost not depreciate throughout the years.
Wow. A gizmo to transform your phone into a sorta kinda light meter for the price of a real light meter. Yuppeee...
Steve Wilson: The value of this image, and the camera, seem greatly diminished when you know it was a staged shot that occurred days after the actual event.
According to soviet folklore, the "Guy with two watches" is from a reckon unit and the second "watch" is actually a compass.
The photo was still edited as the "It's a looter" reaction could be expected.
Ironically, it's the watch that was edited out and the compass that remained on the airbrushed version.
It's always nice to see both new lenses and new bodies to a standard. I've been eying this one since its announcement, will probably end up in my stable as a spare to the spares.
goblin: Silly me. I thought all weather sealed lenses had air ventilation. Or at least that's what my Zuikos let me believe.
Now that we figured out how zuikos and fujis are made - all that's left is to figure out how all the other weather sealed lenses out there for the last twenty years or so deal with hamster farts.
Silly me. I thought all weather sealed lenses had air ventilation. Or at least that's what my Zuikos let me believe.
Mark Rosen: What about the EM5? I would love to have the zero second anti shock mode...
It's unlikely to happen. The zero second update seems to have been released only on the shutters released after the E-P5. I doubt it's possible at all to apply on the E-M5's shutter.
Kookie B: All,
Click on the image of the M6, click again for full-size, then take a close look at the aperture opening. Does anyone else see what I do? An oddly misshapen opening that can't be by design. Strange that they would use an image with such an obvious anomaly for the roll out.
Well, it's serial # 00000000002 after all. It would surprise me if it's a lens at all
Nothing with this brand would ever touch my equipment, again, EVER
I have had three different Transcend cards at different times, from different types. None of them EVER matched its claimed speed. Every time it was falling under the legal definition of that speed rating, so they technically could claim this speed rating, but none of them could handle the claimed writing speed, making it useless in photo shooting at the desired speed. Writing to the card (any of them) would be done at an "uneven" speed, with spikes and lows, which would result in a slow average writing time at the end.
Luckilly, all of them died at one point or the other, giving me the right excuse to get cards that both work and do not cheat on their ratings.
TRANSCEND - NEVER AGAIN
goblin: Part of Olympus' ten commandments to their engineers:
... ... ...
- Thou shalt never, EVER, put all the nice goodies on the same camera model !!!
If your clients scream and beg for an on-board flash (even if it's only for using it as an RC commander for slave flashes) - thou shalt give them some ugly, breakage and loss prone external monstrosity.
Thou shalt give a nice, on-board flash only to the mid-tier cameras, which lack the other goodies.
Thou shalt remember how it was done on the E-P3 <> E-PL3 couple ! One came with a touch screen, the other - with an articulated screen and an on-board flash !
Thou shalt remember - NEVER ALL THE GOOD THINGS TOGETHER !!!

santamonica812: what is the men's job that she is doing?
Most likely being an artist, as the army using these uniforms no longer exists in this form since the early nineties.
zigi_S: You can get an Olympus e-pl3 with kit lens for 249€ in Europe. A current model the E-PM2 with kit lens for 420€. A fuji x-m1 the most cheap you can get with a kit lens is 799€. I don't see how these cameras are comparable. The fuji just doesn't belong into this group. For that money you can get a canon 60d and a nikon d7000. Cameras certainly not belonging to entry class.
Well, they should have listed the entry model for the Leica M then ?
