StanyBuyle: Very easy to work around: "printscreen" button, paste in word doc and capture screenshot. Tested. No "exif code/jarred" that way.
Best protection for your images is not to put them on the internet ☺, very low resolution/size or very big ©...

Just printscreen on the mac — clean, no watermarks, ect.

AlfaBet: Most of these cameras are mass production crap. You can buy them mint condition everywhere at a price of less 50 euros everywhere. Especially Belomo crap which is the most crappy and less interesting from collector's point of view.

What you see on the pictures ARE NOT prototypes. Secondly, BELOMO factory made no prototypes just because these cameras were not engineered by them.

Ayoh: I would expect these to be mostly clones of western European and Japanese designs, which in my eyes would diminish their sentimental value

Most of them are original soviet design. But total crap though.

NaBalam: As much as a car???.. wow.. Those cameras must have some serious megapixels

As a Ford Escort '85 with rusty body and dead engine of course.

maikl80: This is an intersting discussion about the size of analog full frame cameras and digital ones. I was also wondering why film compact cameras could be really small and there is no digital FF camera that small available now. Same is with analog APS cameras which could be almost as small as a credit card. Also some analog SLR cameras were a lot smaller than any current models.
I think the main reason for this is the large price for FF and even APS digital sensors. If you look at the analog compact cameras with zoom they often had very small aperature lenses. The maximum aperture even at moderate focal length could be as large as 7 or 9. So economically it makes more sense to combine a bright lense with a cheaper (smaller) sensor than to combine a large sensor with a dark lense as it was often the case in analog time.
Another point is that it is really hard to find any whether-sealed cameras below 1000$, unfortunately Olympus stoped producing their sealed mju cameras a while ago.

It's not only the chip price. Actually it's not about the price at all. It's about technology.

If you have a large chip, you can't place it like a film 3mm away from the rear cover. It should be some electronics, cooling, display and battery. All this stuff can't be placed in that size body.

Hugo58: Hello everyone. I have a lot of camera's and flashes from several brands. My favourit camera's are from Pentax and Fuji. On one day I got myself a Fuji S602z and a Metz 32 Z-2 and found out that I could sync flash with even 1/1000th of a second ! Ofcourse you have to find the right combination with a diaphragm but when you just try you'll find out and can make special pictures !

With photo greetz, Hugo (Holland).

Fuji S602z is not a camera with a focal plane shutter so there's no x-sync and other problems with flash sync on fast shutter speeds.

newe: 4K??? LOL. Who needs it on a phone...well if it makes you feel better go right ahead.

Giving signal to external monitor/tv in 4k doesn't require 4k display installed to the phone. We are discussing 4k display installed in the device itself.

It's totally unneeded. No one can see any high pixel density above 400 ppi on the full color screen. So it will only take your memory, processor speed and battery power for no reason.

LOMO LC-A pre-production prototypes were built in 1993. How did it happened that lomography turns 20 now?..

gl2k: Perky price.
Nikon DX 35mm f1.8 and FX 50mm f1.8 are about €170

So what?..
