In reply to:

Jacques Cornell: Not a fan of buttons on the left side. Having to take one's eye away from the EVF and move one's left hand from under the camera to the back to push 'em interrupts the shooting process and slows things down. What I love about my Panasonics is that I can set almost every shooting parameter with my eye to the EVF, my left hand supporting the camera, and my finger on the shutter button.

I think he meant more that he didn't want to move his left hand to change a setting. It's just easier to use the right hand for buttons and leave the left to cradle the lens.

But they all moved to the right on the pro2.

For Leica they are working on Quark coating.

Capture the Moment: This is probably because of the Olympus PEN-F which is out late February. Similar type of street shooters camera.

Very happy for your purchase Mike. Good luck with your photography in the rain. For everyone else there are the fuji x cameras which are superb for street don't you know? You don't need IS for all types of lens all the time. There seems to be a school of thought that if camera doesn't have it then you might as well throw your camera away. If you are happy with your camera then great. I'd rather have a fuji thanks.

Fuji pro2 has lots of external dials. Fuji have any lens you need for street. Only Eric Kim uses flash for street. Not sure what point you are trying to make here.

KSV: Very interesting. "Made in China" will never catch up, this is for sure.

Well Made in Japan used to be a byword for a shoddy copy of something made in the West so perhaps not.

Timbukto: I thought the first image was a fancy optical adjustment bench. But it's just hand sanitizer station. I think Chipotle needs some of those.

Also why on earth would anyone need to unbox a unit to QC vs just QC prior to boxing? Shady boxing workers? Or just nonsensical workflow?

I think Timbukto is thinking way too hard about this :-)

Besides Humans you mean?

No it would be Zeiss branded tape.

M1963: So, if I got it right, you record image and sound separately - the former on film, the latter on a memory card. What a fuss!
It's hard to understand the purpose of this camera, even for me - and I do most of my shooting on 135 black and white film and listen to vinyl LPs!
On the other hand, calling a camera which records 2m30s long videos a 'movie' camera... it's a joke, isn't it?

How is the Instax a "joke" exactly?

In reply to:

D200_4me: YouTube will quickly be filled with 'reviews' from guys talking about specs that have never seen or touched the camera.

They are called "Technical" reviews whatever that means.

Jonathan F/2: "Von" Wong's work is cheesy as hell. His pictures are the same over-processed junk you find in a Photoshop User magazine. The only thing this guy does well is market himself with that ridiculous name he gave himself. He's in the same category as Gary Fong, Scott Kelby and the rest of the televangelists of the photography world preaching to creatively impaired sheep of the world.

Could not agree more.

This is scary news. Is the camera industry doomed? How are companies like Fuji, Panasonic, Olympus doing?

The bigger story here is is this the beginning of the implosion of the photography industry in general? Samsung are a highly profitable company from what I know and could easily sustain some losses in the camera division if they saw a future in this business. Is this sign of things to come?

In reply to:

Paul Farace: Not much news here. I guess Nikon is promising us pie in the sky... it will be interesting to see some hard news eventually. We'll be standing by, waiting.

Pie in the sky means an empty wish or promise or something that sounds good but is unlikely to happen. So this announcement is not pie in the sky.
