Marty4650: I really do believe that most people who believe "the cops are always wrong" will be shocked at the outcome here.

These bodycams will MOSTLY vindicate the police, and prove the suspects were lying about brutality or improper conduct. Of course, in a few cases they will support the suspects version. But the real incidence of police brutality may be much smaller than the police haters think it is.

Marty,
I replied twice about the 'lives in a county' in DPR profile not equating of 'being of that country'. I'm sorry it's above your comprehension bar.
The stats in one of the video links I posted earlier are indicative.
My condolences for your attitude. You obviously have lived there too long to understand that there are better ways to live than being subject to micro management of your behaviour (and, apparently, thinking). And for the last time, I have not 'heard of' what is happening in the US with police; I have lived there for years and know first hand. Your memory lapse is pretty impressive...

Marty4650:
You really ought to remove your blinkers and read before you reply. Who are the "hysterical Australians"? The only one who you tried to identify as Australian is myself (who I'm not) and then you jumped to sweeping statements. You really provoke the wide-spread stereotype of American-born idiocy. The pattern of police violence, indicated clearly by the statistics, leaves no room for your hibernating bliss. Have you read the stats comparing gang-related deaths and police killings in your 'land of the free and home of the brave'? Are they all 'reading from afar' while you maintain the factual truth? I have lived and know up close how one feels residing in a country where every step you take could be the last one before jail. The number of annual police arrests in USA is for the Guinness Book. This feeling is not statistically justified, of course, but it's there and it is telling of the civil atmosphere. It is a very subtle, under the skin, fear. Unless you are thick..

You are either mentally challenged, or morally compromised to try and justify this behaviour, implicitly or explicitly. In the western world, and especially in a wealthy and powerful country like the US, there is no excuse at all. I'm appalled with people contemplating the support of police officers-murderers.

And here's a very fresh incident of your "impeccable" police conduct:

No, you were not taking a wild guess. You were jumping into nonsensical conclusions by reading my profile. I currently reside in Australia, hence the profile info- that makes me Australian? Have you finished primary school?

I thought you'd reply like that. Firstly, I'm not Aussie. Secondly, I've lived in the US for years and towards the end I had the feeling of being 'supervised' in my everyday life. So, don't suppose what you cannot suppose.

Do you need to become a US police victim to wake up? Do you consider the numerous related youtube videos to be a needle in a haystack of excellent US police conduct? I'd not be surprised if you do; after all, you can't have a problem without a cause and your commentary emanates a typical US citizen-style mentality. USA would have never became as police-oppressive as it currently is without the "right" citizens to tolerate it. US "democracy" is a sorry excuse of one, and full of twisted contradictions.

RStyga: The US legal system is an overgrown chaotic net of perplexed sophistries that reflects a society in deep trouble. The behavioral regulatory aspects of that system are notoriously indicative of both how troubled Americans are and how inhumanely the country is claiming resolution via civil oppression. It is not an exaggeration, unfortunately, calling the US of 2015 a "police state" of the worst kind in today's western world.

@jadot: If I don't need a thesaurus to type it, and it's not my native language, you don't need one to read it.

@cshyde: No, I meant 'sophistry'. The US legal system is largely logical and, to the letter of the law, just but lacks essential justice.

RStyga: It's a very nice camera and all but the RAW output is still fuzzy with pixel-level artifacts due to the X-Trans structure. Fujifilm needs to resolve the RAW conversion otherwise X-Trans will become synonymous to low high-ISO noise at the expense of "double"-AA-filter style IQ. At a time where manufacturers remove the AA filter to achieve a crisper image, Fujifilm advertises a sensor with no need for an AA filter but -in essence- with an even more blurry IQ than traditional Bayer sensor that have an AA filter. No moire is great but I'm not sure why one would prefer an X-Trans camera since applying PP on a Bayer sensor can remove moire completely and obtain the same "blurry" image that an X-Trans camera produces.

Is there is a Fujifilm output converted sample using Rawtherapee to compare?

Yes, Ricoh GR needs to be added!

The response on why Pentax is not entering the DSLM market is vague at best and insulting to customers at worst. New mount is required so old lenses will be useless, he said more or less ... Really? I have one word for Pentax: "Adapters". And, "Sensor heat" ... right... in 2015? How on earth, then, Fujifilm, Sony, and the other manufacturers made it? Magic spells?

These lenses are too big for a mirrorless system. They should be smaller than their DSLR counterparts not same-size or larger.

Timlo: Not only is a rangefinder camera expensive to buy but to own too. What I've heard owners send in their cameras for inspection and service regularly, usually for checking the alignment of the rangefinder. In this regard this Konost with its digital ghost patch is really ground breaking in my opinion, no more maintenence!

Very good point!

The lack of controls to this extant is a serious drawback even for RF cameras. I also doubt the ergonomics of the grip as it looks slippery, we'll see. Last, I have serious reservations in regard to pricing: I feel from the existing marketing promotion that it will be quite expensive and only nominally cheaper than a comparable Leica M. If Ricoh release a successor to GXR+A12M it will be groundbreaking news. GXR was light years ahead in almost all respects compared to any M-mount digital camera.

Randy Benter: The T6s should get a firmware upgrade to add AF micro adjust. I would never use a DSLR without this capability. It would be nice to have a smaller DSLR like this as an option, but apparently Canikon believe that enthusiasts and pros would never want a smaller/lighter camera. The competition is offering some nice options (e.g. E-M1 and X-T1), but Canon still doesn't get it.

AF micro adjustment should be a standard feature in all PDAF DSLR cameras, even the entry-level ones. With the advent of high-precision CDAF DSLM cameras, this is the minimum manufacturers can do to compete. Pentax was wise enough to incorporate it even in its lowly K-r. Snapshooters can let it be in default setting, but those who can see why FF or BF is unacceptable in a modern camera, should be able to use it. Canon wake up!
