Very interesting interview, Iida comes across as very knowledgable of his markets. "Yes but it in the long run customer trust is very important" amen! Fuji's decision to update the X100 firmware has really made them stand out.
Looking good, seems like some smart product planning from Olympus: Nice camera with a few upgrades, at an even more accessible price point, and without diluting the EM-5 brand with a warmover. I found to my chagrin that these cameras are way too small for my hands, but they could work out with the grip.
Good article, it's always useful to read on actual uses. I discovered to my delight that the Macbook Air 11 fits perfectly inside a Flipside 300 even with a (made to measure) sleeve on. I agree a 13" screen would be better but it's just so practical...
Baby boomer trophy camera? Nothing wrong with that, particularly if they recycled existing parts. For those of us who never really worked with film era cameras, we can just shrug and move on. On a more practical note *for me*: that 6D keeps looking good!
Can't wait for a comparison with Canon's 10-22. It's good to see more competition.
Very interesting, maybe the hiccups can be resolved quickly. It's a desirable camera but as always with Sony there's all these weird details.
Marketing to poseurs? When has it ever failed? I predict good sales and a dent in Nikon users' pride. This will probably be too tempting for Canon, even though they could crush the opposition with a simple line: "Canon, for shooters, not for poseurs".
I've seldom agreed so much with DPreview... "The cutting-edge stalwart" just about sums it up... "a sensible, indeed desirable upgrade to the EOS 60D".
I was expecting a really boring 70D and was happily surprised; when I have the money it's going very difficult to say no to it, even though I follow what other brands are doing, and in spite of the full frame siren calls... it just does everything I need it to do, and opens a couple of interesting avenues with wifi and that new autofocus...
Good, thorough review. I'd love to see how usable it is with longer 4/3 telephotos and specific lenses like the Panasonic/Leica 25mm 1.4. I liked the idea behind the EM5 but found it way too small for my hands, this would feel better. Part of the problem for Oly is that new consumers will look up the experience of previous owners and ask themselves: If I buy your new lenses will you abandon them like you did with 4/3? The brand's silence will be a negative point.
I'd like to see what it actually does, but it's a good move by Fuji: might not result in sales but goodwill can indeed be very valuable.
Don't really understand the zig zag between alpha and nex, particularly the 3 lines of lenses... Not the most stable of strategies, but I'd love to see what these can do with the 135mm STF...
Just read the AF and movie parts, very informative, thank you!
- No but good idea.- Check.- Check.- Check.- Check but don't use it for photo yet.- Check.- Nope.- Nope.- Nope.- Check.
- Also do carry a WB card, cable to connect to PC.
Cool except for this bit, which I'll change to another industry: Windows PCs couldn’t all stink or people wouldn’t use them. Oh really?
A comparison with a Point and Shoot, a super zoom and a DSLR would be useful, I would expect all of these to suck, just like my Nexus 4 does.
The silver ones are downright pornographic.
Lesson: Don't flash the gators...
