We'll see, I guess. But these "new" models rarely, if ever, bring anything new to the game or the models. If you like it, have at it. It's just not for me.

Yeah, otherwise their phones would catch fire. :-P

Behind? So....the iPhone wasn't the game changer we know it was? The graphical interface wasn't introduced on a mass-market machine by them first? Sorry, you lost me on this one.

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

M Chambers: As a photographer I carry a camera. As an American I carry a gun. This is why I'd never go to Russia, I can't legally carry a gun there and I'd hate to find myself the situation of this photographer.

Wait....so unless you can take your gun with you, you won't go? Anywhere? Like to concerts, football games, schools, etc? Not to mention foreign countries? Damn, you live a closed life. I'm 62, have never carried a gun, and never needed one. And I've been around, too. Let it go, and travel. Enjoy yourself.

dmanthree: Just a great shot. For the photographer to maintain his cool during a live shooting and capture this image speaks volumes. The negative comments in this thread are pretty embarrassing, and likely posted by camera owners who have never faced any sort of adverse situation that required them to look, act, and *not* panic and run. I've seen many examples of technically poor photos that have won Pulitzer prizes, and this one is right up there with them, and technically very good, as well. Great job by the photographer.

I see a lot of negative comments about the photo, and the usual "could have shot it with a cell phone" BS.

Fujica: I tried it during a sales pitch in a studio session, but the AF was slooooowwww much slower then I am used to from a MF camera and for those who know. They are already not the fastest performers. Also the camera became quite hot.

Such pity as I wish Hasselblad all the luck they need.

I'm considering one, but am not quite ready. I shoot m4/3 most of the time, bot there are times when I want better IQ. I'm considering selling my FF Nikon gear to fund most of the Hassy setup. Decisions, decisions...

I'm patient, so I'll wait a while.

I still have one of these Sonys, the 90, I think. Still works fine, too. It's on the shelf next to the Yashica Mat 124G and the Minox B.

Agreed, but if it's not a final firmware production version, any conclusions regarding the AF performance are invalid.

On challenge Crop Sensor (DX) AND high ISO (5 comments in total)

Since he said *any* non FF, I'm assuming that m4/3 shots are OK to submit.

He states that right in the description for m4/3.

What I really want is good color film for my Spectra.

Uh....film? Not that crappy third party stuff that produces brown prints, but real Polaroid film?

In reply to:

citizenlouie: This is very well-shot. I gave you a high score. Don't feel despair. This is DPreview challenges..., people gave me one or two stars while some obviously P&S shots and photos that don't follow the official rules got higher scores.... See why I don't enter very often to get my best photos insulted by amateurs.

No despair. I've done well in some challenges, so no complaints. I just with the sandbaggers would grow up. I entered the "looking up" challenge and finished 9th, but I had *7* 0.5 votes! Honestly, the shot was better than that. The winner had none. Go figure.

Thanks, I enjoyed shooting IR with a converted GX1. I thought my shot would do better, but, oh well...

4 "0.5" votes? Really?

Danny: Who needs expensive decors for a SF-movie, just shoot it in places like this and you got really something.

Loved that movie. Especially the scene where the two office employees were "sharing" a desk through a wall.
