I’ve been an active Pro member of Flickr for 10 years.
In the early years I’ve learned a lot about digital photography. The exchange of knowledge and inspiration in groups has been priceless.
I’ve met people and made friends in the real world with people, whom I met on Flickr.
And last but not least, it’s an inspiration to see the work of other photographers and images from all over the world.
It’s worth every penny to be a member of this great community and I’m grateful to the people who run the site.

That camera looks fake-resistant.

I’ve also heard ‘working girl’.

Any crap you use or do at work is per definition PROfessional. You get paid for it.

"… this eye-catching camera features a striking urban camouflage pattern ..."

eye-catching ... camouflage
… makes kind of sense

Would make perfect sense to shoot street with a camera covered in fake snake skin where I live. Everyone would think it’s a toy camera and relax.

Don't bokeh that child, my friend.
They’ve probably watched the movie Easy Rider and smoked some grass at Apple.

Still stuck in analogue herbs and analogue bokeh.

Looking forward to watch the movie.
A couple of years ago there was a very large exhibition of Mapplethorpe’s photographs at the Aarhus art museum in Denmark.
The works made a deep impression on me, especially the portraits.
This guy was a great artist - whose medium happened to be a camera.

I can live without the red dot - but where are the LEGO dots?

I wonder, whether ‘rebranded’ is the right term.
Actually I suspect, that Leica had a lot of influence on the design of the user-interface and shooting experience.
I use the first version of the LX100 and find, that it’s definitely more old-school fun than any other compact camera I’ve used.
Looks to me like a win-win collaboration between Panasonic and Leica.

Bob Klein: Another Leica for the collector's shelf, never firing a shot and collecting dust.

Why would anyone put it on a collector’s shelf when you can’t see it? After all it’s stealth.

On article Leica Thambar-M 90mm F2.2 sample gallery (213 comments in total)

It clearly shows that creamy bokeh is overrated.

Seedeich: Yes, bring back the shooting experience of the 70’s with viewfinder and winder.
And bring back the film look of the 70’s, with shallow depth of field and background out of focus. The video creates that expectation.

...oh wait - shallow DoF on a 1/3.2-inch sensor?

Depth of field was definitely something to be aware of with 35mm film. A deep DoF required stopping the lens down and was not always possible, because there was not light enough when using typical ASA 200 or 400 films. So, yes, more or less shallow DoF happened on it’s own.
But I agree, that the obsession with bokeh and very shallow DoF is a newer phenomenon.

There’s hope that we finally get a digital camera, that only provides Manual mode, manual ISO, manual focus.
Make the flange distance short to accommodate adapters for most vintage lenses.
Give it a battery, that lasts and lasts and lasts.
If they can sell it at an attractive price, they get a really nice niche product.

Interesting idea.

They should get rid of the battery as well and use that old school film transportation lever to produce just enough electricity to record the image and to drive the light meter.
With a couple of spare SD cards you could shoot forever off the grid.

Would be even better if Nikon made a FM-style DSLR without LCD and thumb-lever charged.

I wonder what the GN is at 105mm.
For the Nikon SB-910 the GN is 53 at 200mm and 49 at 105mm.
Does this mean the GN would be around / almost 56 at 105mm for the i60? That would be a stop more than the i40.
Hard to believe for this little flash.

But then again,,, it’s hard to believe what the i40 is able to do.

For a long time I’ve longed for a digital camera with simple manual focussing. Zone focussing, where you can easily adjust the zone with a quick movement of the finger.
Old viewfinder streetshooter style.
If the rest of the electronic is as fast and easy to operate as an analog camera this is an attractive camera.

I never had a Leica, never liked rangefinder focussing, never found Leica prices attractive… but the Q strikes a cord.
(And one can always put gaffer tape on the red dot or paint it black)

For the time being I’m ok with my private LR license.

But this subscription-based model means, considering a private Photoshop license is out of question. I simply don't trust Adobe.

It’s kind of ironic - we ditch big and heavy DSLR systems for small and lightweight mirrorless systems. Why on earth should we be interested in an expensive and rigid subscription-based model?
