The reality is that with the proliferation of cell phone cameras, there is always someone on the scene to take a picture... whether it is a natural disaster or an accident, or even a war. As long as there are people present, there will be pictures available.
I'm sure it will appeal to someone's 'Inner Fop.'
Size is an issue that impacts other concerns. I accept the smaller screen size because I want a smaller phone to carry around. Until someone comes out with a holographic or foldable display, we make our choices and live with the constraints. First and foremost... I want a phone... small, high quality, seamlessly integrated and rock solid. The iPhone 5s gives me all of that. The camera works well enough for me. If I need more, I'll carry the RX100 around. It was a good review and told me what I needed to know. Thank you.
This is a 'poor man's Hasselblad Lunar." It is an ergonomic shell wrapped around an NEX.
I am so embarrassed for them.
RichRMA: "Out of fashion?" Oh dear! What will my fashionista friends think??!!
If you are worried about your fashionista friends, get a Hasselblad Lunar or the Leica G-Star Raw... they will help you contact your inner fop.
You can pick up a new Pentax Q with an 01 lens on ebay for around $225. At that price, it makes a very fun camera. If you are willing to do some PP, the results are very pleasing.
I must admit that the images from the Q7 are somewhat disappointing. I have a lot of fun using the older Q. If I don't pixel-peep, I'm happy with the results.... far happier than I was with the smearing on the newer Sony compacts.
I never realized how big the customer base of wealthy fops must be.
Nikon or Canon = toolsLeica or Alpa = objects
Though to be fair, this would apply to the Hermes editions or commemorative issues.
Thank you very much! I really appreciate all the effort you have put into making this a fantastic site!
This is no different than the fops who buy Hermes edition Leicas.
