So its basically a tripod except 1 leg is larger than the other 2?
RichRMA: Why do people, who either can't afford it, or have no intention of buying it, get so upset about a camera? Or did I answer my own question?
Who said these people cand or cannot afford it? If you can afford a D800 or A7r you can afford this..
Maybe they just think their money is better spent elsewhere.
Sir Nick of High Point: Some people enjoy photography, others enjoy talking about high ISO and sharpness. If you fit into the first catagory, then I believe you will understand Leica once you hold one in your hand. If you fit into the latter catagory, then you will never appreciate these cameras. Not that they can't do low light or produce sharp images. I'm just saying that there's more to it.
Every Camera should be assessed based on its own merit, not automatically attributed the merit associated to the badge which is printed on it.
The Analog Leica of Yesteryear does not equal the Digital Leica of Today.
A well articulated Article.Good work DPR.
I guess Nikon are sorry they are not Making money Fast enough.
As opposed to the D600 fiasco, they were very silent on that one.
I want to know what brand dishwasher that is that it can clean in under 5 minutes!
My Bosch takes at least an hour!
I hope the money goes to the original photographer not the theives who confiscated them
Teenagers make mistakes, give the guy a break, dont ruin his new job career over something he did at college.
bencotto: very good!
Bravo olympus, way to listen to your customers, though late for the EP5, but better than never.
Much better than Nikon 610 Shutter fiasco
ngtszhodavid: Seriously is Dpreview gonna actually post a full review on this. How much longer do we have to wait.
Shouldn't be too hard to do a full review, just do a search and replace on the D4 review ("D4" replace with "D4s") update a few product images and review completed.
andywhoa: So DPR is where all the people who never grew up go to present their opinions? Most of the comments here are embarrassing. Would you act this way in front of your parents?
Where do you think they learned such behaviour?
pdelux: How to take a photo of a blood moon.
Step 1. - Go outside and take a photo of the the moonStep 2. - In Lightroom or Photo editing software of your choice change the colour of the moon to "blood" colour. (In newer Olympus cameras you may use the inbuilt colour function in the camera)Step 3. - Tell all your friends.
All great responses!! Lots of ways to skin a cat...
My point being, no one would be able to tell if you took a photo of a blood moon, or just took a photo of a moon and changed the colour.
How to take a photo of a blood moon.
m43 growing in industry acceptance. Its versatility cannot be ignored anymore.
Zigadiboom: Hmmm...wonder if Nikon will sue me if I develop a sensor which requires rubbing oil on its surface.
That would only sue you if you invent a shutter mechanism that grinds itself onto the sensor as well.
Nikon trying to recoup losses on compacts, turns to litigation...
Donnie G: Here are my crystal ball predictions, (for 2014 thru 2016), that I've come up with for my fellow Gear Heads to attack:
1. Camera sales will continue to shrink in the U.S. and Europe due to weak economies and even more widespread adoption of cellphone camera usage by the traditional P&S user.
2. Mirrorless interchangeable lens compact cameras (sensors sized APS-C or smaller) will continue to make up less than 15% of camera sales.
3. Fujifilm's X series will become the dominate MILC camera brand.
4. Canon and Nikon will continue to adapt to these new market conditions and will collectively own better than 80% of all camera sales regardless of type.
5. One or more of the current camera makers will quit the business or will be bought by another company.
Yeah, I said it!
nobody uses ovf for video
justmeMN: Shame on Canon, for not aggressively rushing into the money-losing mirrorless sector. :-)
Only a few years ago blackberry dominated the mobile/tablet/messaging space, but they became complacent. It only took a few years and they are almost bust.
The mighty can fall, it only takes a single product like the iphone.
If you fail to innovate, you are a sitting duck, I think canons shareholders should be very worried,
lacikuss: I used to own Olympus in the film era. It was great to have a Japanese manufacturer caring about size and IQ at the same time.
Nowadays, I think of IQ and I ask myself why should we trade camera size for IQ? Why is Olympus is not pushing for FF and smaller size? Is Sony the old Olympus?
By the way, I don't own neither but do use FF.
Myabe they see a market for smaller cameras. You cant compare sizes of digital cameras to Film analog cameras with hardly any electronics at all. Of course the original OM was small and FF, but there more in a camera than ever before. They did not have IBIS, image processors, memory, LCDs, rechargable batteries?, AUto Focus motors?
Plus the Boat anchor market is cornered by Two big companies, maybe olympus sees elsewhere.
vadims: "DSLRs can capture the moment better than mirrorless, because you're viewing directly, not through an LCD."
This reminds me those medieval scientists who refused to follow Galileo and use telescope because they believed that lenses were "distorting reality" and therefore insisted on observing with naked eye.
and yet the final image, is viewed through the LCD monitor or printed media...
