Marty4650: This isn't the camera for me, but I really do like the IKEA like styling.

There is something very crisp and clean about Swedish design.

Rumour is that there'll be a flat pack self-assemble option before too long.

Roland Karlsson: Hand made in Sweden?

Yeah, like almost every F1 car which is basically built along the M4 corridor. But they're low-tech consumer products, huh? There are a few Spitfires and Hurricanes flying too.
jaygeephoto... Amerikan maybe?

brownie314: I think this is FAR too expensive for the type of photographer this camera will appeal to. If you shoot in the studio and need a MF sensor - you probably already have pro studio equipment and can switch out digital backs to get whatever you want. If you need to shoot on-site - well the camera is not the biggest piece of equipment you will carry out into the wild (reflectors, flash systems, stands, etc.). So I think this is aimed at the VERY well healed amateur. I don't know how many of those there are that can drop $9k and just get a body with no lenses. We will see.

Jeeze, "well-healed" in every post.

Interestingness: I'd get it but it would only be equivalent to a F22 lens on my m4/3 body.

See what I did there, reverse equivalency???

You won.

Bok7h: What a gigantic flock of whiners !
What narrowness of spirit, what a lack of tolerance.

Now I think finally I love these lenses. At least THEY have a little bit of character and their own personnality. But the comments ... Phew.

And the spelling! Double-phew!

On article 2016 Roundup: Semi-Pro Interchangeable Lens Cameras (256 comments in total)

"Semi Pro" = absolute nonsense.
It would be interesting to know how many people can be truthfully described as "semi pro photographers". If it's 0.1% of the number of "semi pro" cameras sold it would be astonishing.

Phantastic breakthrough for the whole of humanity.

I had the equivalent ThinkTank version . All I can say is that I used it once; luckily I have a very good osteopath.

Edited: I mis-remembered it as a LowePro

On article Accessory Review: Peak Design Slide Camera Sling strap (144 comments in total)

"Attaching the Slide took less time than any strap I have ever installed."
Wowie zowie. A compelling reason to buy yet another strap.

Despite which their Capture Clip is something that's actually worth buying and using. Providing you're wearing a backpack.

Odd that DPR comes up with the idea of reviewing this camera a couple of days after TOP's article...

rsf3127: If you travel eith you stuff only to civilised places, maybe this or one of the Ona priducts may fit the bill. Anywhere else, I prefer my backpack with the opening hiden from bad intentioned hands.

A Big Roller is always an impressive way to tote your gear around in. Me, I'd tend to go for an even bigger Hummer.

Always wunnerful to see a new piece of photography luggage. After all, there are so few to chose from! Cool... awesome... must-have...

Just spotted the price. A phantastic bargain to boot...

In reply to:

alcaher: NASA sucks, they always waste alot of money and resources. Take all that money for better things to do here in our the planet.

Insane. Every problem on the beautiful planet we're fast destroying is a consequence of an epidemic of human over-population. Yet this never comes up in discussion of potential solutions.

Move to Mars? Utterly, profoundly, quite literally, insane.

Of course the reason no-one wants to discuss the population growth problem (which is relatively easy to solve compared to all the other possible "solutions") is that the current ruling economic model requires ever-increasing numbers of consumers. This will only be realised once it's too late. And it's almost too late now.
