Not everyone is going to love this but I think that it is great that someone who isn't Leica is making digital cameras with an aesthetic appeal. I think that it is cameras like this that will save photography from merging with phones.

Victory Camera: I run a vintage camera shop and I want to like the ersatz film box tear off but I confess that it seems like a gimmick. I would prefer that that the screen back was blank.

Could be. It lets people who do not want to chimp still see necessary data.

Victory Camera: I am going to speak up in defense of "hipsters." I run a vintage camera store and a lot of my customers fall into this category. What I see is a lot of young people frustrated with throwaway culture gravitating to things that feel real to them. They seek out and treasure outdated technology like typewriters and film cameras because they offer a sense of quality and stability.

Yes, there is a lot of conformity in this group, but isn't that true of every other scene?

I am not defending that outraged hipster though. He just sounds like an idiot :)

You're right. I thought that my post might seem preachy so I wanted to end on a funny note.

StaLeveler: The only thing this photo needs is the person holding or carrying a Canon AE-1 loaded with some expired Kodak Gold 200.

Ouch. I run a vintage camera store and you just pegged a quarter of my customers.
