Old Cameras: This explains my relentless drive to buy a beef burrito bowl every Friday afternoon come hell or high water.
I'm suing for 4 billion dollars, plus damages.
And pain and suffering.

And the suffering is for what, indigestion? :)

On article Dell's 8K monitor goes on sale in March for $5000 (215 comments in total)

mike earussi: Now if they would bring back K25 I'd be tempted to start shooting film myself.

That's quite an accomplishment as Kodachrome is a 14 step process. But more power to him, and I'm surprised he can find any Kodachrome at all.

True, but Kodak might be surprised at the positive response. Everyone loved Kodachrome.

I guess that means that Van Gogh was also no good since he couldn't afford the best paints, brushes and canvas.

caravan: Yikes! Wedding photography is about as exciting as painting by numbers regardless of camera brand.

I've seen a lot of wedding photographer's web sites, most are mediocre and have the standard shots that look like clones of each other using the same poses that came from some wedding photography "how to" book.

But a select few are really good. It's easy to tell the difference between an artist and a robot.

And the results reflect it.

Mr R Adams: I don't think the camera makes the photographer - a bad photographer can own any camera.

However; I would rather my excellent photographer turn up with a D5 or 1D. These are still the fastest, most accurate and reliable cameras on the market. The also have the biggest range of glass and lighting tech. Dual card slots, drop proof bodies. It all matters for a once in a lifetime day.

"Once in lifetime"--what country are you from? (must not be the U.S.)

Simple suggestions from, and for, simple minds.

dmanthree: Could've been worse. The 'author' might have published a few examples and said "that could have been shot with an iPhone."

There are plenty of weddings shot with that already.

I can't imagine any investor stupid enough to put money into this.

A redesigned case makes all the difference in the world in its operation. But I'm holding out for one with a lavender case with pink polka dots.

Conspicuous by its absence is the price of this new toy.

As an addendum to Fuji's announcement, it might be interesting for dpreview to do a history of Fuji's involvement in MF film cameras, especially their 6x8 system, especially given that several people here have made comments thinking that Fuji has never made any expensive MF systems before.

Also a comparison of MF sensors to various film sizes might help the newer photographers here have a better perspective about where photography has come from, and where the it may be going in the future.

That would be a good subject for dpreview, a comparison of the now three MF systems under $10,000.

Sranang Boi: I have a feeling it will sell like hot cake. Specialist photographers have been dreaming of a camera like this.

And how is this any different (or better) from the Pentax 645Z?

robbinsbox: interesting about the eye control af.

The problem, of course, was that you had to hold your eye in exactly the same position as when you first calibrated it, and that was just too difficult to do. But that was when Canon was the most innovative camera company around--and I miss that about them.

I had the Elan 7E, and I think it worked even better on the EOS 3.

It was great when it worked (about half the time) and I still miss it.
