rsf3127: NY Times is so irrelevant...I am pretty sure that without Soros funding them, they would already have filled for bankruptcy.

I really would be glad to be incorrect about this specific subject.

Koolblue2: Add the Minolta SRT series, preferable to the x700. Don't need a battery to take a photo. Though they do use a battery for their meter. The battery must however be of the 1.3 volt variety.
The X700 have known issues with capacitors that provide the power to flip the mirror up and down. The capacitors leak quickly and need to be replaced every few years. As well parts are nonlonger available for the x700....perhaps buy several to have a parts body.

Please access rokkorfiles.com to see how to adapt your SRT to use 1.5v batteries.
It is easy.

Not an appealing menu by Canon, I must admit.

Maybe an a6000 for half the price would be a wiser choice for the average user.

Leth Dhashyish: Un vero peccato che abbia abbandonato i sensori per DSLR. Il suo è stato il primo BSI "grosso" ed aveva una resa fantastica.

Tutti buona gente, ma tutti ladri.

Not a word about better IQ, lower noise, better color, etc. What a shame.

Who cares about camera bump if it makes better IQ possible?

rsf3127: It is a shame that Google and Apple let simple things unattended. For instance:
1. I want to use a MicroSD card to transfer my photos quickly.
2. I am used to switch batteries in my LG
3. I regularly use headphones with a 3.5mm jack.
These are habits I am not ready nor willing to give up. They could move the money from the R&D of some of their gimmicks like background blur towards usability. Am I being narrow minded?

I have a good mobile phone plan that allows me a lot of Gb of traffic. The connexion stability is not the most reliable where I live though.
However, you should know that in many countries people cannot afford such a luxury.

A tiny bit less flashy, I must admit.

not that much if you don't hang it around your neck...

rsf3127: Seagate? NO, THANKS!

Over the last 2 years, 2 seagate HDDs and 4 WD external drives failed in my 2 offices and at home. One of the Seagate drives and two of the WD could not have their data completely recovered.

Now I backup everything in 2 cloud servers.

On article Sigma to reveal new lens at PDN PhotoPlus Expo 2017 (51 comments in total)

I rely on Sigma for my E-mount lenses because Sony's are expensive or bad or both.

I hope they keep the good track record.

I have pictures taken with my Lg G3 hanging on my wall. It does not mean that it is a good device for any kind of photography. That said, I am pretty sure that the best aps-c cameras of today are already ahead of FF bodies launched 4years ago in terms of IQ. So the choice between both rest mostly on the FL of your lenses and how much you need compactness. IQ should not be the most important requisite unless you shoot in the dark very often and don't have DXO 10.

Magnar, take my advice: do not feed the trolls. It is worthless.

In reply to:

Androole: I would definitely prefer a 40mm camera, but he's saying a decent 28 or 35mm, so that's obviously what it's going to be.

My main issue with fixed RF compacts is that they tend to have VFs that are a bit too small to be nice (my Minolta 7S II is a perfect example), and they are almost entirely shutter priority.

I, too, would be interested in a compact, high quality compact film camera with a good lens, a good light meter, and aperture priority (or at least metered Manual).

But the big problem with film compacts is, and always has been, how do you focus? Rangefinders are fiddly or small. SLRs are big or complex, or generally compromise on negative size (a la the Olympus PEN half-frame SLRs, which are otherwise the right size).

A very neat project, but everyone who still shoots film has such particular tastes, it sounds like he might be designing a niche camera for himself. And everyone wants their own niche camera...

I have a Minolta XD5. IMO, its focus screen is very good and I have real pleasure using it even if my Konica Auto S2 has a huge RF and a very subtle shutter.

Marty4650: Not too long ago I found this Yashica T4 Super D selling at a Goodwill store for $2.00.

https://c1.staticflickr.com/7/6126/5919586612_ef99c2dffb_b.jpg

I bought it, then listed it on ebay and got $300 for it.

I call that a pretty nice profit margin.

buy a SP35 or a Konica Auto S2. Mine is awesome.
