On article Film Fridays: Requiem for all my broken 35mm cameras (98 comments in total)

I have a small collection of cameras. Some of them working, some not.
Very rare I put a film in one of them an shoot only to play with the camera.
My conclusion: a broken camera stay on the shelf exactly well like a new one.
I like looking on them.

The interesting thing is the "global shooter"

Simon Zeev: I have 4 Olympus m4/3 cameras. I will not buy a camera that don't have an EVF or at last the option to mount one.

I have one E-M10 with EVF 2xE-PL2 and an E-PL5 without EVF but an VF2 that can be mounted on them. I use the E-M10 with E-PL5 for 3D pictures and the E-PL2 for underwater and casual pictures. Even a pocket sized camera need at last a provision for an EVF. Maybe is me!

No EVF = No deal.
I begin with E-PL2 and a mounted EVF ( I have 2 of them)
Next was OM-D E-M10 and E-PL5 for taking 3D pictures.
I don't see why someone will buy today a camera without an EVF.

Simon Zeev: I will like a smaller Olympus m43 camera with "Global Shooter" and option to sync. 2 cameras for stereo pictures.

If smart phones will put 2 cameras at 7~8cm they can take beautiful 3D pictures.

A camera without evf and m4/3 mount and with an m4/3 sensor? Ridicule .

Very nice!!!
A lot of people doesn't understand that is not made to be an artistic tool.
I enjoyed very much the results. they are very funny.

The good news is that maybe 3D will be back.
I was very disappointed when all manufacturers announce that they will not make 3DTV anymore.
I shoot mostly 3D pictures and my 3DTV is getting old....

Simon Zeev: From #4 it looks that the stereo base (distance between lenses) is much too small.
It may be good to shoot a flower from 30cm .
I tried a lot of distances between lenses and I shoot stereo pictures with 8cm and it seems OK for 1 to 20 m to subject. If you change the SB you can get different depth effects.

Unfortunately most of the phones users shoot only in "portrait" mode.

Every deviation is now more "artistic"?

Mssimo: Target audience will be using this mainly for cat pictures and I don't see a single line about how it will perform at this task.

Nothing bad with "cat pictures"
I love them if they are good.

xoio: For F*cks Sake! LOL
If you're going this far in creating a system ... Just put a damn display on the back & some storage in it, instead of fannying about shoving a mobile phone up its *rse, to entice soy fuelled hipster millennial phone zombies.

The camera have 32 GB internal memory.
