At present there are many people who do not know what to do with their lives without social networks like FB, G+ and others. These social networks are the reason for their existence often. What we have in social networks, shared phrases and tons of publicity, unless specific situations, in fact the people themselves, do not sharing something original and unique, they share what millions of people share, aaahh and make millions of Likes too...without talking.Social?
It is time to start lowering the price of the lenses, since they will produce more, or is it a utopia?I doubt that many prospective buyers will buy lenses, or have more lenses than what comes included in the starter kit. Buying a $500 body, and then buying a $1000 or $1500 lens?uhmmmThe concept of sales of cameras starts to be the same concept of selling printers.
At least offer a red light!
This Gadget deserve a pop-up flash, could be small to match the style, which was still better than the flash of smartphones. Maybe the next gen. will become with one, for more that $150 for sure.
The soaps continue. See next chapters in the near future.
To follow a market trend, and satisfy a specific niche of customers. Perhaps it is now a good deal for them. An idea, Ilford should make an free app for smartphone focused only on black and white photography. Could be a good way to get to know the brand and products for many new users.
Unfortunately this is a world of make-believe, the people accept, because man is an animal of habit. What is natural nowadays suspects. The time we set out the discovery of natural landscapes, social values, talking with people on the terraces and cafes, on the street corner, sharing a house with friends is increasingly less common, even being in a family. Nowadays increasingly everything is at a distance of a button, a false scenario, a filter, a mobile phone, and forget the contact with reality, and with people and real things. Virtual reality came upon us without doubt. A few more than others.
Flickr app with real time filters is very interesting.
No I don't need 41mp camera, I need less noise, a clean image, a better IQ with a good optical image stabilization for sure. More sensor size than pixels.
Digitall: Wait, the flash is on the right side (photographer perspective) near the grip, where usually the photographer puts his hand to hold the camera and shot?!Modern engineers...
Yes thats true, I was looking that little curved ridge. In practice no one will feel it when taking a picture over the time. They want to be different, then do things practical and functional. This is a failure of design.

jcmarfilph: Yawn...still the same phone with mediocre camera with bumped up MP for more smeary result. And some so-so (10 years ago) features added.
CIA, FBI and NSA like the fingerprint reader too.
Product vs Price = Sony 1 - Competition 0
zkz5: These comments are actually only equivalent to f/5.6 on a full fr... er... wait...
The comments from f/5.6 to f/8 are usually common sense comments. We have to admire some comments f/0.95 or f/32 with some interest too.
I can see people cheerful and full of happiness holding a Lytro and taking photos.
Why waste time with this kind of crap, really. Now is to put smartphones at the level of medium format, I think the world of mobile photography walks very frustrated in these times.
Shamael: That's the kind of people who made me quit Europe for another country, where I never see any of those. In Euroope thay are like raoches, everywhere, and they are protected by nature and law. So, prior to become a total foreigner in my own land, I prefer to be one in a country where they respect me and where I see none of those shown here. Oh, by the way, I am not a racist, or anti semitic, if someone had the idea to say so, I'm just a humble and simple living Jew.
Shamael, Europe for another country? First Europe is not a country, is a group of countries. Should we think that Israel is equal to all other Arab countries? Your comment was inappropriate and without knowledge, in other words, was a racist comment.

All manufacturers have what they deserve. Both for good and for bad. It's all a matter of time. In the case of Olympus, the price asked by the cameras is an abuse. Namely the EP-5. Notice that when the OMDs were launched with a very attractive price for an innovative product, but it seems that they learned how to get around in EP-5, only it did not work the same way. $ 1,000 for the M43 body is currently an abuse. I do not admire that in late July began making a discount of - $ 50,00 on EP-5. Firstly they work for shareholders, only then to their customers. Soon we will see the price of the body, to include the EVF and a lens, perhaps as early as September or October. Waiting is a virtue.
Miss the smell of chemicals and hours locked in a bathroom to reveal and print in room, slow photography, and enjoyed.
Digitall: "Go big, or go home" already summarized and sentenced.
So the future of M43 is a slow death? Well, I think that APS-C and FF is the sensor where people must bet in terms of future, depends on the camera. I say this for years, I'm not Nostradamus, but, things are going in this direction.It is clear that other systems are to propose some very interesting things, especially M43 regarding the functionality, but that's not all. Already said here, the M43 to survive has to play with quality, price and portability. The size of M43 cameras are not much smaller than it is now in the APS-C, so, here M43 are losing points. Lens price? some yes they win, some not at all.IQ quality? yes m43 are growing well, but always limited by the mathematics of sensors. Pixels vs size. The build quality is already very good in top models.Not being thinking about the medium format itself, the FF is the Top dreamed by common mortal. So, Go big, or go home. ;)
And seeing by this point, Sony will already be in the future, small bodies and larger sensors. RX100 I/II, RX1/R and maybe the recent arrival of NEX FF. With prices undoubtedly exaggerated, but, why do not other companies are reacting ... Sony has studied the market very well and guess well the trends.
