On article DJI reportedly takes majority stake in Hasselblad (191 comments in total)

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.

Super. Loved the tailboard cameras on display.

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.

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:

SirSeth: I shoot mirrorless for a variety of reasons, but if I were buying a new DSLR, this would be it. Also I think as a little brother to anyone using D750/D810 this seems like a great choice. Nikon took their time and it shows. The AF, buffer, sealing, and control layout is very refined.

Great article and video too Barney. Wish I could have met you all. I'm not as experienced or so much a man crush as Ronan, but would have loved to show you some of the local spots. Yellowstone in the back yard is still a dream come true for me and it's a wonderful place to photograph birds and animals, but some of the backpacking and animal subjects outside the park are less photographed and also stunning. It's maybe even a little fortunate that you had to play it by ear due to fires because it led you to be spontaneous with the camera and really explore an area less photographed.

Yes. This is what Nikon does best.

1-Yes, look for an MX922.
2-Epson's newer Workforce Printers with Precision Core have gotten good reviews and use pigment ink, which makes for better longevity for business documents.

Feature creep among models. Silly.
Best value: pick up a used MG6220 or MG8220.

In reply to:

Gesture: What would be a 40mm equivalent for this sensor. I compare this to the new Hasselblad as a "simple" larger fornat walkaround camera, a la the old press cameras in the film era.

Thanks.

Epson had a similar backlight illuminator (Hybrid Collector Backlight) on the PC850Z-a pretty good camera.

Eloise: Before Sony (I think Sony was the first) build a floppy disc mechanism into their camera came SmartMedia. And to transfer to your PC you could get a floppy disc converter to slip it into.

Well it had better transfer speeds than a serial port.

Yes. The xD cards line up with half (I believe) of the contacts of the SmartMedia cards. Used both on many a camera. The wonderful early Olympus C-X0X0 series used SmartMedia.

Cutting it close, DPReview. I needed this before XMas shopping.
