  • Commented on article Hands-on with Hasselblad X1D

    How ridiculously vain and superficial you are to judge a tool simply by its looks. There's nothing wrong with incorporating some decent style into a camera (or any product, for that matter). ...

    @Marko2 - "Medium format's bread and butter is fashion and product photography with an elaborated strobe/lighting system"

    I think that is mainly due to the fact that medium format cameras have...

    A flip-out LCD would take care of that. Maybe on the X2D.

  • Commented on article Hands-on with Hasselblad X1D

    I hate this "you probably already have..." non-sense logic that idiots like to use. Yep, no one needs anything new because everyone who might want something "already has it". Yeah, makes total...

  • Commented on article Hands-on with Hasselblad X1D

    XPan and Pano cameras were a necessity in the analog era. But even then, it was very much a niche product. In the digital age, the very high resolution sensors that are available now, combined...

    "Pedigree?" LOL. That's really old thinking. In the digital age of information and technology, knowledge is not some kind of genetic inheritance.

  • "I understand the cost/expense issue, but given the target market (pros) an extra $1000 or two would go unnoticed in that market."

    I don't think it would just be "an extra $1000 or two." It'd...

  • There's bells and whistles, then there's a medium format sensor. There's definitely a place for a medium format sensor, especially in such a compact package. These camera will have no problem...

  • First of all, this is just a debut. It's not a complete system. I'm sure faster lenses will eventually be introduced. No need to freak out so soon. Secondly, I'm sure existing medium-format...

  • Expense. Larger sensors get extremely expensive. You could increase the frame size of film, and the cost didn't go up that much. The cost increase was probably fairly linear. But when...

  • Commented on article Hands-on with Hasselblad X1D

    There's no point of a K02 with a VF if it uses the same flange distance as a regular DSLR. Totally pointless. The reason why this Hassy is so slim is because it uses a totally different lens...

  • Commented on article Hands-on with Hasselblad X1D

    But at the pace that Pentax works, it's probably a decade away.

  • Commented on article Hands-on with Hasselblad X1D

    Canon and Nikon bodies don't have "a shutter speed dial on the body, and proper aperture rings on the lenses" either. Plenty of pros and non-pros seem to *get by* with Canon and Nikon gear. In...

  • Commented on article Hands-on with Hasselblad X1D

    I think it's absurd not to use SD cards. CF-card cameras are a dying breed. I think CF-card cameras will eventually become extinct. SD is now the overwhelming standard for digital cameras.

  • Commented on article Hands-on with Hasselblad X1D

    Looks like a solid, clean, well-designed piece of equipment. I love the pop-up mode dial. It keeps the design clean, and prevents un-intential movements of the dial. Incredibly compact and slim...

  • Commented on article Hands-on with Hasselblad X1D

    So true. I never judge a camera's looks and design solely based on what I see on the web. These things need to be judged in person, in your hand, and even after a bit of use.

  • Wow, pretty sweet! Amazingly compact for a medium format sensor, thanks to the elimination of the mirror and OVF! Love it!

  • I don't know why so many people have to take a "one or the other" binary position on this subject.  JPEGs produce great results for situations where you don't need to or want to do a ton of ...
  • Breaking news: old cars still drive well. And yet, new car models are being introduced every year. Are we being "taken for a ride"!?!?!?! No, no one is being "taken for a ride". Cameras are better ...
  • Replied in some images
    Anything at ISO 70 or 100 is going to look fine.  That's not exactly something to brag about.  The true advancement in sensor quality has been their ability to perform well at higher ISO speeds ...
