Nobby2016: i bought a fuji compact for my sister 5 years ago.

it´s the worst compact camera i have ever seen.
the images are ALL smeary no matter what ISO.

my lumix LX2 from 2007 is making better images.

You are not in good terms with your sister. Are you?

Count them. 4 Canon L lenses.

Yeah, you pointed out a Canon weakness with respect to Leica, but the are rapidly catching up. They are increasing prices wildly with new lenses.

The layer of ions from the air attracted by the electrostatically charged metal coating of the barrel will deviate away from the front lens the photons diffracted by atmospheric dust. This translates into enhanced microcontrast that can be easily confirmed by any common deep sea diver while biking, provided its pressure tight suit is properly fitted.

That justifies the premium price.

Correction man: "Swedish medium-format camera manufacturer Hasselblad "

shouldn't this read "Japanese" Manufacturer (Fuji)" as that is where these lenses are Manufactured and by whom ????
as are the camera Bodies also

...Which is the way it is. :-)

The mask is clearly for snorkeling, the server can also store music, I fail to understand the use of the rest... But wow, that is absolutely cool and revolutionary!!!!

Tenba press release seems a down to earth version of Dpreview article...

Automatically unique shots! Cool!

Same experience here with a humble Fuji X10 thrown out of the window...

Looks like the spent more hours for the press release than for the design of the product.

Btw, thanks Dpreview for spotting another essential product.

On article Canon warns about dangers of counterfeit camera gear (154 comments in total)

With the aim of protecting its loyal customer base, Canon is rolling out a twin faced policy:
1) Each single piece of Canon gear shall have dedicated firmware that will expire yearly, thus blocking the equipment. Installation of new firmware will unblock the equipment. Yearly firmware updates shall work on Canon equipment only and shall be available for a symbolic fee.
2) Customers shall be able to tell real Canon stuff from the crap by looking for the hologram and for the Canon SafeTag(R) price, which shall automatically stay above USD 1500 independently from any discount made.

Care for a nice holiday? Want a new car? Your home needs some renovation?

Don't use your money, don't ask your bank! Just go to Kickstarter and have photo enthusiasts pay for it! you do not even need to come with a new idea!

Goodmeme: If you want one, I presume you had better order fast before Hasselblad sue? I'm not a lawyer so would love to be corrected, however the fact that someone is admitting inspiration is like Samsung making an iphone clone and admitting they were copying Apple. Isn't this obvious intellectual property infringement?

I mean, would it not have been safer to claim ignorance of the Hasselblad model and just have created a wooden hand grip which is not a new thing? Or could Fotodiox have a reasonable defence anyway?

I just don't understand why they are referencing Hasselblad; is this brave, ignorant or something else?!

Hasselblad has no cash left for a lawsuit.

massimogori: For a moment I thought it was crap, then saw it is on Kickstarter and found myself relieved.

Seriously, there are thousand of producers of useful accessories that DO EXIST on the market ant that YOU CAN ACTUALLY BUY AND TEST. Still Dpreview prefers to keep an eye on Kickstarter, which demonstrated to be mainly a trap for unsavvy enthusiasts.

Thanks, Nikolausz, for proving my point.

Finally Canon brought us a serious piece of glass that costs less than a camera. It is unfortunate that they had to raise the prices of cameras so much to make that possible.

Poor Maeda-san. He says "speed it" and they don't. He says "sell it" and they decide not to care.
