On Best Digital Cameras for Kids article (141 comments in total)

My 4 year old granddaughter has been using an Olympus e3 and a Lumix g10 for about a year now. For the e3 she needs a hand to support the weight, the g10 she can manage by herself. She has one of the Vtech cameras, but she really prefers the bigger ones.

I am amazed that people can read so much into such small, badly translated message.

"Yesterday (February 12), in some media organizations, the withdrawal from digital SLR cameras, etc., and a significant reduction There was reportedly are considering, there is no such facts. Together to strengthen future mirrorless interchangeable lens camera, the Company, the same as for conventional digital SLR cameras I hope to continue without."

I'd love to see a new e-X SLR from Olympus, but that message doesn't prove that it's coming or not.

Uaru: I am sorry. There is no loyalty which would force me to buy that monstrosity they just created.

Leica is expensive - but it is at least different from anything else. But this is an externally pimped up copy of NEX...

Ah, thanks for that information, I'll look there.

Direct from Hasselblad, their "Lunar" lens spec page shows E mount lenses and A mount via an adapter. They also say its going to be an APSc sensor. All of the prototype drawings show something that looks an awful lot like a Sony Nex with a sexed-up body.

So all of these comments are about a completely different article than the one at the top of this page. Ok.

Can you point to the "original source" please?

Rumle: How sad really. Hasselblad is ruining there rep here in my opinion. The pictured camera looks like its gonna be a A99 Hassy version. Design looks Retro vs Spacy in a horrible combination. If it doesn't offer any advantages over the A99.... Why, why WHY, would any one buy that ****.

I feel sort of offended I guess. Asking 6500 cash for a rebranded NEX-7 is really stretching it. Not even Leica could pull that off.

Hassleblad has (had) a good reputation. But really, they never been Leica class, honestly and trying to pull this stunt off is.... I dont know... get a grip folks (at hassy that is)

The article says its an E mount, how big is the image circle from an E mount lens? It reads like this is a hopped up Nex, not some flavor of the Alpha series.

"Sony and Hasselblad have announced a partnership that will result in an E-mount camera" right from the top of the page. It is an E mount, E mount is Nex unless I'm really mistaken.
