cinemascope: I guess Samsung got fed up with all the crap from all Apple and ditched them all together.

http://www.techpowerup.com/174238/Samsung-Stops-Making-LCD-Screens-for-Apple.html

Samsung is the unbeaten the king of displays these days, good luck to Apple trying to source another supplier at the same quality/price level...

Hehe. "Apple stops placing orders" becomes "Samsung refuses to make LCDs".

Pavel Sokolov: It's for poor people who have no additional $170 for The new new iPad :)

Or want want something smaller than an iPad, but bigger than a Touch.

meanwhile: My A35 feels unloved by Sony.

Just saying it'd be nice to have more extended support, rather than so much built-in obsolescence through not updating just released cameras with easily added features (sometimes they would be difficult to add, obviously, but often not). Not saying they *should*, or there's no cost to show loyalty to existing customers, just that it would be nice.

Making an excuse for Sony is not answering an unasked question. It'd just be nice to see them support all of the DSLT cameras they release, rather than pick and choose. And it's not a cheap, low-end camera, just at the lower end of their premium range of interchangeable lens cameras. I'm not talking about a DSC-T5 released in 2005, the A35 was only released in mid-2011.

It's not that old. And I don't expect it, but thanks for talking down to me anyway.

logbi77: Interesting to see how the XZ-2/P7700/EX2F compares to the old XZ-1/P7100/EX1.

If only they didn't make the damn thing twice the size!

Piet Maartens: One aspect that is often overlooked is that Ansel Adams worked mostly with large format view cameras – I think up to 11 x 14 inches. This probably limited the amount of film he could take with him and the Zone System enabled him to get every exposure spot-on. Exposure bracketing would not only have been impractical, but also very expensive. Such limitations hardly apply to 35 mm photography and digital imaging. Whilst it is always good to have a sound understanding of the theory, the practical relevance of the Zone System nowadays seems to be limited. The only benefit I can see is that it trains the photographer’s eye and mind. Or am I missing something here?

"when does all that bracketing and multi-frame burst shooting move our work from "art" to "luck?""

Never. Luck has always been an element of art. Both good luck, and bad luck. You still have to be there, and engaged, and creating, and have something in your viewfinder worth capturing.

El Crapio: Don't like it. You could have gone for a proper forum like vbulletin or something.
Threaded view is almost useless now, and flat has always been.

I disagree, flat view is very useful, and it's the default view I use the forum in.

Badbatz: Why in the "flat view" mode the messages ae not properly indented indicating answers to a particular message in a thread? As it is now, all answers appear to be to the OP.
Also, the new forum/thread page is too heavy and loads way too slow on mobile devices and/or with a slower connection. How about removing some icons and windows dressing or at least allow per-user configuration indicating whether an user wants the windows dressing or not.

That's always how flat view has been. That's why it's called flat.

australopithecus: How many more zooms are Panasonic going to produce ?
A 24mm prime would be nice.

Do you mean a 12mm (24mm @ 35mm equivalent) like the existing Olympus, or a 24mm (48mm @ 35mm equivalent) like the Panasonic/Leica 25mm?

Gary Dean Mercer Clark: This camera makes me want to buy a Sigma DP2M and DP1M for $2000.00 and have $799.00 change left. DP2M will blow away the overpriced RX1 in image detail and quality.

You can use the $799 to buy a Kindle and some books so you have something to do waiting for the DPs to focus, and waiting for there to be enough light to use ISO400.

Francis Carver: I just hope the legs themselves are made out of cardboard, I will be buying 3 of these nifty thingies then.

If you keep up this level of quality in your comments you can be up to 2000 by year's end. I know you won't let us down!

How do they feel about the competition's offerings? "I think the competition make better cameras than us, because of this, this and this" said No Marketing Manager Ever.

G10Rebel: Probably will steal a Braun design... like usual

It's the looking over the shoulder to copy that's the issue. When you climb, there's at least some effort of your own.

I don't think I'll try this given the warning. I like using conventional cameras and I'd hate to think I'll never be able to use one again!

Anyone posting comments on a camera site like DPReview calling Apple's products "so expensive" is being disingenuous.

Prest is right, some of them use still use Symbian.

nekrosoft13: Will have non-removable battery, memory will be non-removable, will use a totally different unique plug, $50 adapter will be available. If held incorrectly will fail to work, in that case a case will be required. Some times will burn on people pocket. And will be manufactured in factory were people comit suicides. Will cost 2+ times more then normal product.

That sounds like a typical apple product.

"There are a few others like me"

Thank heaven for small mercies, there's only a few like you.
