photo nuts: There seems to be a massive push by DPReview to promote mirrorless cameras. Just saying. :)
"I would not lay blame on DPR but rather the MFT fanboys who are pushing for the premature demise of DSLRs."
Get a grip- it's just words.
YuriS: Where is Sony A7????
Not only different class- still unreleased technically.
zodiacfml: MFT fixed lens please.
I have wondered why they haven't gone that route too. They could top the high-end fixed lens compact camera market.
Cane: I have some 'rare' photo's of me in college doing the same thing. I may call some auction houses, see what they're worth on the market.
Unless you were in a Rolling Stones equivalent band, I don't think you're going to get a reply.
deeohuu: "Rare photos". What an odd phrase. What is rare about them? Think about it. Any definition that sort of works means that the vast majority of photos are "rare".
It's not that hard of a concept to grasp.
So would this be used for the "prosumer" 4K user, or when compactness is needed for what ever is being shot? I had always thought people would use portable hard drives to capture the data.
digiart: I don't get all the criticism for DPR publishing this story. They published PHOTOS documenting the launch of a rocket carrying astronauts and the Olympic torch. Isn't this site about photography after all?
Many DPR readers are into astrophotography and interested in space flight. I am, and I much prefer to see space pics then read endless posts about cellphones!
I know right? It's even labeled as "Other news"
King Penguin: Nice camera but sadly crippled by the small sensor.....I'll wait for the FF version from someone else.....
So... basically you're just being a jerk?
"What's the matter? Is a Micro 4/3rds camera not big enough of a crutch to make up for your mediocre photography skills?"
Really? Was that necessary?
Ernest M Aquilio: Lets pretend for a moment that this is the internet and anything I say can be completely disregarded.
Nikon DF, Digital Fusion: Remember that patent Nikon filed for an interchangeable sensor? ( At least I think it was Nikon)
So with digital fusion you can remove the sensor "unit" and in its place able to load 35mm film "unit" that will use 35mm films. Now that's real fusion. Akin to the R9 DM. But you know...
Why do you even bother coming here Henry? You don't exactly add anything to the substance of this place.
Commercials, snarkiness, and general photo use crankiness aside- what will really push this camera is the price tag. If it's a sub 6D/D600 price they very well may sell quite a few.
Biowizard: Can't help wondering if the Merkins built their houses on proper foundations, a sensible distance above sea level, out of bricks rather than wooden planks - whether the likes of Sandy would have been anything like so much of a problem.
Sandy was a less than one in a lifetime storm, it probably wasn't considered. It's not like a storm such as Sandy happens every other year.
FreedomLover: With Samsung, Sony and Toshiba selling 4K TVs for under 4000 dollars already, the image quality offered by these small sensor cameras is visibly lacking. And dpReview's denial of the obvious double edges produced by shuttershock shown in their own samples is not going to help.
What are you babbling about? 4K resolution is only 8.3 MP.
lazy lightning: Still just the same flat, lifeless images as all m4/3 cameras. No separation (not talking bokeh), everything in the image appears to be on the same plane giving the impression of a one dimensional universe. Lovely colors though!
keep on trollin'
c76: basicly the Olympus EM5/EM1, Sony A7 and A7r start age of mirrowess, DSLR will soon to be end.
yes and no- I wouldn't exactly call a rangefinder mirrorless in the same way sony + fuji + oly/panasonic has handled mirrorless.
R Thornton: Where is spectacular in this? Nikon are in such a debt with their market that nothing short of spectacular will cut it. It is hard to believe that they would rather nose dive to oblivion than deliver on the goodies at a fair price that they must be capable of. Come to think of nose diving...
So waxing poetic grouchiness?
Eridan_Fetahagic: Who cares?
Apparently you do, enough to comment on it.
brudy: This is exactly what I want. A pure FF, small camera with OVF and manual controls, including aperture rings on lenses. Literally a digital FE2.
hence "...although that price is a real turn off."
Although some students have too much money to burn.
I have wanted this for YEARS.
It's something that would also be great for photo students as there's nothing equivalent to a Pentax K1000 today digitally.
...although that price is a real turn off.
mister_roboto: That orange one looks great- it's non-north-American though right?
Or simply for people who like orange/tan.
