ABM Barry: Aie, I see this clearly.It’s the furst Scottish Nikon camera; ah ken that noo.
It’ll no be black or sulver, it’ll be clothed in the Clan Tartan of yer choice.
No need fur a camera bag, just pit in in yer spurn on yer kilt. (Matching tartan of course)
The hand-grip will hold 4oz of the finest Scottish whiskey for those special moments.
It’ll have a wee hole on the side ta pit yer head phone plug in ta listen to the latest bagpipe tunes and a 50mm f1.8 lens.
Whit else kid ye ask fir?Hairy MacBaz
LOL I read this first thing in the morning. Made my day! :D
Guess what,I bought the X100S right after I read the review XD
I can't see how a no-af, no-rf camera could provide quick and accurate focusing. Digital manual focusing aids are great, but are they reliable and fast enough to be the sole focus control? Sure, the Ricoh GXR did it, but that was 600$ add on to an already existing camera, amongst other modules that have AF.An all new interchangable lens, APS-C, AF camera would make much more sense.
The camera's ugly. I don't care about what their future roadmap is, this camera announced NOW is ugly, prohibitively expensive, and doesn't bring anything new to the table.I know the same thing can be said about leica, but at least leica makes its own camera that happens to be the only rangefinder and is based on a very well respected lineage of cameras.
rondom: dpreview, please stop including pictures with your Hasselblad Lunar news-or at least accompany it with some sort of explicit content warning...thanks
Are they serious?! @@
Wow, they lowered the price! I'll finally be able to affor... oh, never mind.
This is the perfect camera for my 5 yro daughter. She's been wanting a camera for so long but current cameras are either too awkward to use for her small fingers or too expensive. Not to mention the non-instant nature of digital cameras where you have to connect the card to a PC, setup the printer, fire up the software, and go through the multi-page menus to choose the print command, all of which would be quite daunting for a 5 year old without any adult help. With this Polaroid (assuming it is small enough and easy to use) you only need to snap the picture and print it straight away. My daughter will love it!
