On article Yashica is teasing a comeback to the camera market (275 comments in total)

This is simply buying a brand, as the new Kodak cameras. GE, Honeywell anyone!

Still, in today's manufacturing arena, companies can order up cameras (as does Nikon I expect for compacts) and offer something good. The Kodak superzooms get high marks for price.

But this does look like smart phone accessory lenses. Slick presentation. And should people complain because of how a women is being "used" for marketing?

Yes, sport fans, that how selfies were taken for generations before Insatgram and SnapChat.

Gesture: Z4 sounds like a great value. Apple equivalent might be $4K?

Good to know.

Interestingly, this was Jobs' vision. A sealed unit that you just replace with the next model. Fortunately, for a while, we were able to upgrade our Apple desktops: 6100, 4500, G3, G4 models, in particular. I don't consider Apple current limited lineup (Mac Mini, iMac, Macbook) computers, but devices.

beavertown: PC trumps Mac in one area finally.

Yup. As much as I like Mac OSX, Apple has been superseded in computers long ago. Nothing like all the 2-in-1 and other neat form factors from Lenovo, in particular; multiples variants of the Mac Mini with a lot more customization possible; not to mention the almost pack of gum sized PC.

Whilst DPReview ponders renaming itself as CynicsAbound, I think these are great machines and good to see HP being competitive.

I think a better strategy is not that much less for just the body, but excellent/deep discounts on lenses when buying a body. Gets more of the system out there.

Thanks. I'll look at the G3X.

Gesture: Here's an idea. For a lens that expensive, the retrofit is FREE.

You just made the point. Surprise and delight the customer with something extra of value.

This is the mistake and narrow thinking the OEMs engage in. Please, $1,500-it should come with a lens hood, that rear filter, etc. Pentax manages to issue a quality lens hood and lens cap for the kit lens.

Great stuff, as usual, Carey.

What is the next frontier. The sensor has been refined and refined. Video incorporated into DSLRs and mirrorless; even enthusiast compacts offer great video. Connectivity has been introduced, although I think there is room for improvement,

Lenses? New processing capabilities? Power management?

damian5000: All that incredible technology and still can't put a $1 touch digitizer in their $1000 cameras, or $3000 cameras for that matter. Still sitting in 2010.

What is a touch digitizer.

In reply to:

davids8560: I'm fat and old and hard to look at, and I managed to miss the boat on all the important opportunities that came along in my life as a result of a long chain of pathetically misguided choices, so I view these happy scenes feeling a significant degree of doleful envy and uncomfortable self-pity. But, despite the sorrowful regret these appealing images stir within, they really are very nice, and my interest in Fujifilm continues. Consider me the Willy Loman of this web site. Thanks.

Well-said.

Would it cover full frame?

In any event, GO FUJI.

Great to see a new approach being tried. Have to admire Fujifilm.
