Why will someone send 20K usd of equipment through checked luggage? 20k doesn't mean much to you, or you are very naive.

technotic: No popup flash == no sale. Close Naikon, close.

You have to be trolling, who uses the horrible on camera flash? Do you have images to show why is useful? Actually taken it away is a good move. Less things to brake.

JT26: It just proves a point that hardly any realise... Modern tech has surpassed the technical quality of film so many times over that even the oldest and most out dated
sensors can create magic.

So the pictures is in black and white?

@absquatulate, yes good luck getting such clean files at iso1600 with 35mm film :)

400 is this including unlimited raw storage? For much much less you can SmugMug better platform reliable, and provides you all the things you need besides raw storage for a reliable price. Who is going to pay photobucket for 400?

Yes use the angry photographer as a reference, such an unbiased and good photographer. He definitely knows how to use a camera, look as his beautiful samples :)

DPPMetro: Another ad for a kickstarter?

As a rule, I no longer bother with Kickstarters and crowdfunding because all of the outright scams, disappointments, and frauds lurking around there.

Most of the issues are not related to scams, are related to people not doing a thorough risk assessment. And yes nothing is risk free, so whoever is planning to put money on a kickstarter campaign and is thinking it will go 100%, has never worked in anything related to development or projects...

maxnimo: Nice, but this article would be more useful if it explained how I can get to Jupiter, the best camera to take with me, and what to wear.

@Angular wisely said. And weight won't be even an issue, because of lack gravity all of those G master lenses will feel like turkey mirroreles lenses :)

Don't take a Sony, batteries won't even make it to Europa. You will need quite a of them to make it through all your trip.

Pitchertaker: #1Probably shot in Venice, California. Other than this, the rest appear to be international images, which will cost you, in addition to the plane flight, the hotel stay, cab or car-rental fee, food, water, payments for models, etc., or roughly $3000 per shot

#6 Likely unobtainium if you don't happen to be Muslim.

Galápagos Archipelago as a destination for the winner? A superior landscape/nature location if lizards, turtles, seagulls and other marine birds turn you on.

I liked #4 most because it creates the illusion that you're the one riding in the cab taking the shot.

Images created in the USA seem to be put down as they were inferior?
What???? Yes America is bad, is the reason for all evil In the world, that's why American images are not taken seriously :( (I am trollling a bit :) )

3k per shot? Cuba is expensive but not 3k, traveling is not cheap, but it does y necessary have to be expensive. Don't be angry cause you cannot travel and others can :)

Mais78: Number 7 is a great lesson in how to build a story out of nothing. Caption could have said: this lady in Havana makes money by being photographed by tourists dressed up in traditional attire, so like any other I paid and took a shot of her.

Hahah maybe it's a story about how tourists get ripped of in Cuba :)

Nikon Guy UK: 3 minutes to clear the buffer on this bad boy!! LMAO!!! A DSLR killer I think not!

Announcer at 2020 Olympics: "All events are temporarily on hold for 3 minutes. There is a Sony photographer clearing his buffer!!"

@Rubberdials, yes indeed he is a reliable reviewer. But he seems to be the only one talking about that short time. The rest are saying at least 2 min, and by the rest I mean all the other reviewers which are not Sony artisians. Something seems to be sketchy.

I am no sport shooter, so I am usually at finger speed :) but really how can the Sony be considered a nikon/canon killer when it takes 3 min to clear the buffer and the canikon takes circa 4 seconds or less.

Yes 200 shots is a lot, but still it's not all bells and whistles as many are saying. That look a like a real blocker for someone to move into Sony l, besides the lenses.

idefixx: Dpreview is making less and less efforts of hiding its nature as a PR platform

I think Fujica shoots with a black box camera made of recycle paper, and his images are embedded on his memories, no need to use film nor waste on chemicals to develop, only the chemicals he sniffs...

In reply to:

Superka: Digital all look almost the same. Nothing interesting. My Panasonic LX100 is even better! https://www.flickr.com/photos/superka_01/

Hasselblad was much better when using film.

Not sure were you are looking or how you are looking, but is not comparable , (some of them at least). By the way were are your pictures taken? Looks very much like Bucharest in some places. Thanks!

Triplet Perar: Cuba still produces those cars from 1940s and 1950s?

They don't produce them, it's what's left form that era.
