Game changer? How about some camera maker finally releasing a camera with a square sensor! That my friends would be a game changer. And yeah, it fits quite well with Hasselblad's freaking legacy! *will never happen*
Cdog: Really wish they would update the app to allow for landscape orientation for, ya know, photographs!
@PeaceKeeper Yeah, but you're stuck with a 4:5 aspect ratio (1080x1350) for portrait oriented images unless you want to keep adding the dreaded white borders. Who has a camera that shoots 4:5 these days? Not many... 3:4 would have made sense as this is what almost every smartphone captures.See more: https://help.instagram.com/1469029763400082
Valen305: Nice! Can't wait to see how it performs. Especially coma - if any, wide open.
I think this looks quite promising...http://www.sigma-photo.co.jp/oshimoto_photoessay/2015/img/1022-full-22.jpgThat's at f/11 though.
There's more full size samples here:http://www.sigma-photo.co.jp/oshimoto_photoessay/2015/1022/
Ran Plett: Is there a comparison gallery anywhere? These images make me think the older iphone 6 could be a lot better in terms of value. That or even an iphone 5s.

If you happen to be listening Leica... Make this with a 35mm lens (f/2 would be enough) and your market reach will be significantly wider. In fact, I would hit the order button this very minute. :-)
So, am I visiting PetaPixel or Digital Photography Review?
Seems to me the m43 sized sensor has reached some kind of (hopefully temporary and not physical) performace limit. Not impressed.
The Photo Ninja: I personally love tilt screens! The flip out screens are annoying and detract from usability.
I love the GX8 style flip out. 80% of my pictures are vertical, with the flip out I can frame vertical pictures with the camera by my waist. Thank you Panasonic!
EDIT: cdembrey's comment came in while I wrote mine. :)
There are dozens of hosted services like this. http://cargocollective.com/ and https://squarespace.com/ stands out to me. The most interesting to me however, is the self hosted http://koken.me/
see the macro with Note 4 with the link above no special lens required
Why ? Note 4 does it with internal lens no issues with Macros
I'm sad to say that this example looks like digital zoom/cropping — quite terrible.
I'm starting to think that their previous statement will not be true in a year...
"Q. Will Lightroom become a subscription only offering after Lightroom 5?
A. Future versions of Lightroom will be made available via traditional perpetual licenses indefinitely."
Whyyyyyy 28mm? This is nothing but a strange focal length for a non-ILC (yes, I'm looking at you too Ricoh GR) that Leica has not historically embraced. If there was a 35mm version I would buy this. Please Leica, it's a dream come true, but 7mm to wide... :-(
I'd say a marvel. But I think you should expect marvel (and more than that) for the asking price...
Hugo808: Nice bike.
Can't believe you put the camera in your pack without a lens cap though. Tsk.
I think that ditching the lens cap was one of the first things I learned during my photography eduction. UV filters is a good protection though.
If our full frame cameras had the pixel pitch of some ~20 MP consumer compact cameras have they would output something like 350 MP. We still have a long way to go.
If they finally implemented some real pixel binning solution that worked with raw files this would be an awesome progression. But as long as we only have that nasty linearized sRAW option I'm not too tempted.
New bodies are cool and all, but a camera system needs lenses. Please take note both Canon and Sony. I got an A7 last year and I'm sorely missing some fixed focal length lenses (mostly an 85mm). While Sony is busy updating their cameras Fujifilm creates stunning and priceworthy lenses. Again, take note Sony and Canon!
That being said, I think this looks like a step in the right direction. I might get it when the price has plummeted as I'm really intrigued by that 22mm lens. 35mm (in FF equiv) is my fav focal length and that thing is pretty much everything I could ask for in a lens: cheap, sturdy, compact & fast.
Also, next time integrate the EVF into the body. Panasonic did it, Sony did. Of course Canon can do it too.
The concept model looks like a simple 3D print (look at the striped pattern in the body). Is that all they're going to show?
sproket1: To all those complaining about lack of EVF.Smartphones are the worlds most popular cameras....and they lack an EVF.Hundreds of millions seem to live without one.... some pretty well.
Could this be the same hundreds of millions that thinks that the camera in their camera phones is the only camera they ever need?
You obviously buy a real camera because it has something that your phone doesn't have. An EVF could be one of those things. Better IQ could be another (even though I think the importance of this is greatly overestimated for the majority of people).
The Photo Ninja: No Fuji - wahhhhhhhhhh!
Thank that godforsaken X-trans technology for that.
