If you were starting a brand new camera company...

Suppose you were an eccentric billionaire and as a passion project you decided to start a camera company, what would be in your line-up?

Personally, I'd have the following camera lines:

1. An Aps-c waterproof tough camera - kind of like what Leica do with the XU, but at a cheaper price point.

2. A compact 35mm FF camera the size of a Rollei 35S. In fact, the same as the Rollei 35, but with a flash where the viewfinder would be and an LCD screen with sapphire glass on the back. It would feature manual focusing, a collapsible lens and front dials, just like the Rollei.

3. A Nikon F mount mirrorless camera the size of an FM2. Full metal construction, manual focusing and mechanical shutter. Compatible with the entire Nikkor lens line-up. No time limit on video recording.

4. A Nikon F mount mirrorless camera - as above, but with modern automated conveniences. Again, no time limit on video.

Over to you guys.
