The 8.5mm if not prohibitively expensive (afraid it might be, huge amount of lenses in there:-() could make me an m43er. I guess 93.5x11.7 should read 93.5x70.1?
Very enjoyable low-fi pics with good composition, light, color and above all that humorous twist. Really make me want to try Instagram if that's what gives the look.
straylightrun: The Samsung 16-50 should be 24-75, not 25-75m
I have read that the crop factor is 1.54 so it should be 24,64-77mm.
rurikw: Beautiful minimalist design but can't understand the decision to cripple it by leaving out the hot shoe. Its inclusion would hardly have compromised the design in any way. Don't like fixed screens either but this is one of the few cameras where I can understand that choice.
Yabokkie now you are talking business. There could be connections on top, bottom, left, right, front, back. A tiny core that can be expanded forever.
Calm down. We are just commenting on the choices made by Panasonic. This is the comment section, right?
Besides flash a hot shoe can be used to attach an evf or smartphone (which mounted on a ball head makes an articulated screen) and, I am sure, many things I can't think of. Rather useful for such a small and cheap component.

It's certainly got the blues. Must be lonely up there in those lofty spheres.
Mind-blowing. Hard to imagine a more valid, worthwhile (and demanding) use for photography.
ArcaSwiss: 16 Megapixels seems so passé
Yes, 13 would be much more original.
What building on DSC_4716?
Would be nice to know more about the 561 models. What of? How related to the <1000 prototype parts? I am sure it's lovely but to appreciate the material and the craftsmanship you need to get to hold it. The design is only part and hard to judge from low res pics. Certainly looks like a well honed interpretation of Leica aesthetics. Like the softness of its boxiness, the rounded edges that go on the lens as well. Couldn't they have made 10 of them and put them on show in the world's biggest design museums and let people hold them for 10$ a minute? The upper left pic on additional images seems to be of an earlier prototype, fortunately they did away with the crease on the top plate on the final model?
Surprising how many are left cold by these images. Greg Fallis' comment on her website ("Not just any dress") expresses his (and my) feelings about her work so eloquently that I can't add a word. What makes me visit dpr every day is the huge diversity. The speed with which the site has expanded to cover all imaginable aspects of photography from tech to art is impressive.
This is the photo I always wanted to take. It's perfect as is. Congratulations!
How about silkscreen prints from your smartphone? Apply light sensitive emulsion to screen, put your phone on top, expose for x minutes, wash away nonexposed parts, apply paint with a squeegee and voilà: it's art and craft! Starting set with 2 4x6" screens, 4 color tubes, 250ml bottle of emulsion, squeegee, pack of 50 sheets of paper in 10 different colors and textures, solvent for cleaning phone and screen, cleaning pads, only 250€. All comes in a handy cardboard briefcase. For an additional 50€ you get a really neat apron to protect your clothes.
Funny to see that I am using a "historical" camera (Sony R1). Happy you included it anyway. Have been thinking to upgrade to a system for years but afraid it might turn out to be a downgrade.
I have an earlier version of the MPod with a bracket that slides onto a frame attached to my iPhone. I am quite happy with it for somewhat unexpected reasons: The frame doubles as protection for the phone and the tripod as a removable (and flexible) handle which makes the phone much more comfortable and enjoyable to use as a camera. As a tripod it's sort of tricky to get in position and it creeps but still better than any of the cheap table tripods I have tried. Unfortunately one joint has come loose so one leg tends to come off but can be snapped back and still works.
Manual FOCUS?! I didn't realise it was THAT close!... Er... To where? Will it crash into the earth?
Very inspiring. I certainly will use my iPhone camera on midsummer holidays and try to SEE. The last winner must be in the wrong category. Those guys don't look like travellers. They probably work there every day. Or maybe it's a typo: should be travail, not travel. Great pic though.
tabloid: All very nice...but its done to a jpg.It would be much nicer if all this could be done to a raw image, and then once corrected (in raw) converted to a jpg as a final finished image.
I wish there was a 'Photoshop Raw' with all the same menus that the ordinary photoshop has for jpg manipulation.
I always work on tif files in ps
