euh... What are their designers smoking? Can't they design something made for humans? Not to mention how ugly this thing is. I've let it slide on the Quattros since it was their attempt at something different but another one??? Can that thing stand on its own without a lens? Make it a proper box and put that viewfinder far away from the handgrip.

Nicely done! There's definitely a huge amount of effort put into this film. Dedication, patience and persistence. Kudos to Mr. Loutit. A lot of people can talk but not many can do the walk and end up with a result. Not many would dedicate 3 years of their life/time on a single photography project either. Congrats!

This is a brilliant technology! It would definitely revolutionise digital imaging. Finally we can step closer to 'film look' than ever before. How long before Sony buys them up? (if they were smart enough) Then again, they might develop their own 'Quantum' film technology with some minor differences and rebrand it as their own. Any sensor development company should be smart and invest into those guys.

By the way, I don't see why the look should be referenced to Wes Anderson at all. It's quite the opposite, Anderson is trying to imitate the film look lost because of the crazy colour grading from Hollywood.

On article Light L16 packs 16 cameras into a single portable body (393 comments in total)

I like the idea but does anyone know if they have a 52MP photo sample available to download? Kinda hard to part with 1299$ without showing anything… Not quite convinced they can get 52MP resolution with those lens. Even if you do some kind of stitching, signal overlay, etc…Might turn up to be similar to Nokia 40MP promise. Some of their sample photos looked no better than a camera phone as I can see pixels smudge (the bridge, chess pieces)...

blink667: "I'd argue that the arrival and development of mirrorless has made all cameras better. Convergence not only means mirrorless cameras coming closer to matching DSLR strengths, but also DSLRs having to raise their game to withstand this competition and add features such as face detection that they haven't traditionally been able to offer."

Someone please explain to me just where the market can go at this point and how much more they can tweak a camera? Beyond more mp and some minor innovation, it's getting close to the dead end.

IMO we could see better integration of mobile technology. I.E. Faster wifi technology even a SIM card perhaps. Automatic firmware update via web connection the way a smartphone does. Even in-camera apps... Instant sharing Your photos on Facebook, Flickr, Pinterest etc via camera. Some phone users like to take photos on their phones because of these features.
Other things like better in-camera sensor stabilisation could be improved. 4k videos, ISO, etc. still loads of areas to improve on.

Elandreth: This is a bit confusing. As others have noted, there's subject motion between the individual shots of each scene. The description says 30,000 photographs were taken for this video. Even if each scene is composed of 50 photographs, that would still be 600 scenes, which is far more than appear in this video. So were the cameras shooting bursts at each scene?

As part of the post work done here, it says the photographs had to be slowed down and stabilized. Umm... what? How do you slow down a photograph, or stabilize one that's already been taken? Were these phones shooting images or video? There's an audio component to each scene, so perhaps they were actually shooting short video clips?

Slowing down would probably mean the actual smoothing out the spatial difference between each camera. Since you want to create a video between all still frame, you have to fill in frames between each stills in order to create a smooth video. Tracking (stabilization) isn't perfect either since each camera are not pointing at the same point, so you would need to reposition each frame to create a smooth motion. You would need to do more work in post production and do a small in crop each photograph,

Not impressed with image quality so far. Photos show softness at +f8. My Sony RX100 pocket camera gives better results!

Why don't they make an interchangeable lens system based on that sensor??? Literally a waste of resource.

On article Pictures emerge showing widely-leaked Fujfilm 'X-T1' (372 comments in total)

The remnant of the old pentaprism design looks too artificial for me. Personally, I prefer the rangefinder retro style with an optical viewfinder from the X-Pro1. It still is a beautiful design. I would have preferred a new and improved weather sealed X-Pro1. If you have to go pentaprism design, better make it full frame like Sony did to justify the added weight and size.

I quite like it. It looks simple but I'm sure a lot of attention has been brought into it. It really looks like a camera from the future and everyone is wearing white jumpsuits.

EasyClick: For me it was their return policy. On amazon and even John Lewis you could return the package after opening it and using a camera. They would take the product back no questions asked. At Jessops, it wasn't so. If you broke the seal, it was nearly impossible to get a refund unless there was a manufacture problem. That alone lost me as their customer.

@Biggestelk, Sorry but I don't agree entirely with what you're saying. There have been many occasions when what was promised or advertised was not what I was getting out of the camera. If I'm going to pay over 1k for a camera, I'd like to be able to test it and handle it for a few days instead of being pressured to buy just because some guy wants a commission. Also, the sale guy's opinion might differ from mine. I'm also happy to buy open boxed or used products. I think what small shops should offer is a chance to look at test photos on a monitor and examine the files. If you prized yourself to offer a better service than online, step up and actually do offer more than talk.

JohnnyWashngo: This is the future of photography and I am looking forward to giving it a go.

Bravo to Samsung for seeing that Cameras need to be Internet connected in order to move forward. They are not the first to do so, but I reckon they will be the first to actually pull it off with any real success.

The Android OS is proving to a real jack of all trades and I think OEM manufacturers are really benefiting from the cost savings made by not having to develop their own OSes as well as the developer ecosystem that Android provides. As an Android developer myself, I can't wait to start writing code for a camera :)

As much as I love my 5DM3, and I do love it very much, I would love to have a decent, pocketable camera that I can snaps shots with and upload to my GDrive or SkyDrive or whatever. How long until Android OS makes its way into more professional cameras?

I agree. This is the future of cameras but not entirely convinced about using Android as operating system. For me, it would just be wifi/3G connectivity to upload to an account. I think innovations will have to come from connectivity and integration.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isnt NASA supposed to have technology decades ahead of what's available on the market? They're the guys inventing the science and breakthrough technology...By the same reasoning they should have a photo sensor that would only be available today on the market. I understand the article but I just thought otherwise... Maybe someone should send an iPhone to Mars??

Why is the design so ugly??? Olympus saw success in a retro style. Canon could've easily taken an old design like the Canonet and adapt it to digital.

Anzere08: I liked my DP1 but 2.8 for a prime is not a fast lens anymore in 2012

I would pay 1000$ for a 1.8 lens on that baby. The sensor is incredible and just needs a bright lens to go with it under low light conditions. Who cares about interchangeable lens if you've got a great product.
