In the voice of Nelson...Haha.
I feel the quality of the photographs coming from any digital camera in normal light at this point, really comes down the to photographer and not the camera making these images really not all that helpful.
0rton: What I'd really like to see is a manufacture simply create a digital Super 8mm cartridge. Create a cartridge with a sensor in the place where the film plane would normally be and have it take pictures/frames activated by the pulldown claw in the camera. It would universally function in any vintage camera and "reanimate" entire generations of otherwise retired camera hardware.
CosminMunteanu: hmm, the guy is not whining when there is no AF available :-)) ..of course. He's busy taking pictures ;-)OT: nice having this kind of opinions shared.

opps wrong thread...sorry
vesa1tahti: OVF, absolutely no EVF.
Love my EVF...will never return to OVF.
infocus: Every time I open Photoshop CC 2015 I get a notice saying they can't verify my account. I spent an hour with an Adobe rep who even took over my screen to figure it out. It finally stopped, only to start again the next day. Sigh.
Agreed! I don't mind the idea of a subscription but login issues are fairly endless. Even have had problems opening my fully licensed and paid for CS-6. I also hate that the sign in window isn't compatible with my password organizing software. Grrrrr.
I'm not sure why I'm bothered but people's acceptance of poor quality images is frustrating. What's the exposure latitude on cell phone camera? Even on a quality DSLR, photographing a photograph isn't optimal. "Ugh" to this product.
What a terrible example. The less flashed version, for me, is far more attractive. Warm orange skin is a lot nicer to look at than cool cyan skin. She looks like a smiling corps.
filmrescue: What I've always thought about Lytro cameras for photography...."Well that's really cool but I kind of know what I want in focus when I take the picture - most people do". Hope they have better luck with video...it actually makes a lot more sense. Focus pulling in post would be really useful.
Hmm...interesting Everlast66. That might be coming. I don't mean to leave the focusing for post but the much more difficult focus pulling. That alone is a person's job on a professional production set.

Tactical Falcon: Sony does it again making something no one asked for, or cares about. The a6000 is a competent camera for its type, the a5100 is saying would you like your car without the steering wheel, and tires, but otherwise, it's still a car. Needless edition. Kill the 5xxx series unless you really want it to be a great networking camera for the social as others have mentioned here. Weak execution on a unclear camera for an unclear audience.
For touchscreen alone I'd buy this over the A6000. I bought the A7s to replace my nex-5n. Love the 7s but touchscreen is sorely missed.
Stacey_K: Imagine how small the likelihood of these being preserved in a digital format would have been. Does anyone actually believe the digital files we have today will still exist or be readable in 50 years?
elihu I believe is right. One advantage digital has over film is that it gets copied and shared a good deal more than film prints did and to add to that, important images are copied and shared even more.
I can get the no viewfinder but if you're skipping the viewfinder then at least have a flip screen. Pretty boring offering from Nikon here.
Why no flip screen? So many cool cameras out there now that I don't want because you can't move the direction the screen points. Frustrating...seems such a simple feature to add and for those that get used to getting the camera way from in front of their face, it is indispensable.
To little to late.
filmrescue: Ha....I'm sure it's a perfectly capable camera but I'm not sure of how the people over at Canon define "revolutionary". I think it's the same word they used when after about 4 years of flip screens on other manufacture's cameras they finally introduced it on one of theirs. Looks like a great camera and I think it has an interesting feature set but "revolutionary"....come on! I'm not sure that by omitting the option to interchange lenses on your mirrorless camera, makes it "revolutionary".
I loved and owned a R1. I would probably really like this camera too but if you put out a camera that's basically like an R1, it might be a great idea because there's a place for such a camera but wouldn't the R1 be the revolutionary camera? Anyway...love the look of this camera but the only thing revolutionary about it is that you can't interchange the lens as you can with other large sensor mirrorless cameras.

Debankur Mukherjee: Nice Camera but way too expensive for a Mirorless Body.......I would go for a 1100D or D3100 in place of this.......cramming more pixels has also degraded the high ISO performance of this body.
I think as the EVFs improve, mirrored cameras will become less and less desirable. Ultimately a good EVF will be a better representation of your final image then what you get with an optical view finder. Personally, having a smaller body and not having a mirror system between the sensor and the lens is a big plus too. I'd like to see more high end mirrorless systems coming out and less effort put into DSLR systems.
