  • Replied in 3M
    3M sticky. Ian says he's still trying to pick the best version to 1. hold and 2. be removable if necessary.
  • 1. Would you be annoyed to have an EVF on the top of the camera? Or do even care about the EVF? 2. What's the intended site for these pictures? Facebook? Your TV? 16x20 inch prints? 3. How often do...
