Love rangefinder photography, from the Japanese post-WWII fixed lens RFs, the Soviet copies of Contax and Leica to the Mamiya Press and Fuji medium format RFs; even RFing with a 4x5 Speed Graphic or Busch Pressman.

Here was an opportunity for Leica to simplify and INNOVATE-with a RF field of view that zooms to the focal length in use and still uses a true optical RF. For me, about 80 percent of the window being the image to be captured within a frame line and 20 percent of the window being the view outside the image area would work great.

Good article.

You gotta love conceptual art. Lots of stuff like this done over the years. The work here isn't imaginative or of good photographic quality.

Good comments, all. One of the milestones in modern camera history. Luminous Landscape had some nice video work done with the GH cameras.

They have to, seeing as the most powerful interfaces are excluded from tablets and smartphones. Not interested in babbling as I work.

Actually, if there were any one film that could be brought back into production, I would choose VERICHROME PAN.

Now, endow the products with that imagination and energy.

On article DJI reportedly takes majority stake in Hasselblad (191 comments in total)
In reply to:

zilver: I think people are missing the big picture, this is not about country names, rather Hasselblad unexpectedly have a huge hit on their hand with the X1D (UK Hassy manager said they received 30,000 worldwide pre-orders expecting only 3,000) but they haven't stockpiled enough cash to meet the production quickly. Rather than losing their golden comeback opportunity, they are converting their shares to their cash rich supply chain associate DJI to grow their facilities, in time benefiting themselves, DJI, shareholders and customers. Simple business, not selling out and nothing to be sad about.

It sure does seem like a neat camera. Super sophisticated and simple at the same time-exactly what is missing in the mature DLSR marketplace. I hope the camera reaches users.

Weird. Too many orders! But who would really want to own Hasselblad?

ScarletKnight: Thank you, Kodak Alaris, and I hope you'll consider offering 120-size Ektachrome too. I'm guessing a fair number of people who go through the "trouble" of shooting film nowadays want the benefits of medium-format film. Lastly, as a Baby Boomer, I can assure you it's not just hipsters who use film.

Absolutely. Not to mention the stellar lenses once available for medium format.

Gesture: Best value in APS-C?

Yes. I was thinking Pentax, also.

Guess it rules out Hasselblad's new medium format camera.

This is an article for PCNet or WikiHow. DPReview is/should be well above this level.

tonywong: Pretty looking design. Never will work well. You can google Universal socket wrench to find a lot of competition, some sort of similar.

Most of the time you will have a hard time getting a correct sized tool on a nut/bolt because it won't be conveniently located on a flat open location. So that honking giant sized tool will never ever fit into the area you need.

Reminds me of all those newfangled portable ladders that they flog vs a simple ladder. Winds up costing 5x as much and takes 10x the weight for maybe 1/2 the volume savings of 2 or 3 ladders.

Just get the right tool for the job. Universal tools are for universal tools.

Another challenge-the holding mechanism working against torque.

Interesting how Ricoh, Casio, Toshiba, Epson were there in the early days.

On article Modern Mirrorless: Canon EOS M5 Review (1595 comments in total)

Glad to hear about the sensor. Also, good for someone with an investment in Canon EF lenses.

HenryDJP: I feel that Canon is not moving forward with their products, especially these new line of printers. I'm in the market right now for a new printer. Canon's stand-alone scanners have been nothing short of 100% flawless for me. Very reliable for my business. I decided to get an AIO printer, but if you go too cheap either the print quality will surfer or the scanner quality will suffer. What sucks is Canon removed the ability to have an Automatic Document Feeder on this new line. That's a feature I really need for the work I do. Other than smaller size there is ZERO upgrade with these new line of printers.

Glad it worked. Yes, the MAXIFY line seems an attempt to emulate the WorkForce printers with pigment ink (DuraBrite).

The only issue for me, I use 3rd party carts and inks and the MAXIFY printer is more difficult to refill:
