Aasmund G: Hope Fuji keeps on making emount lenses!!

Don't count on them making any AF lenses or any photo oriented lenses for APS-C line of E-mount bodies. That would potentially keep customers from switching to their mirrorless offerings.

MK line makes sense, since it is not competing with the photo oriented bodies they produce and because it fills a big hole in Sony's lens line-up.

nickolas84: The sensor is nothing sort of amazing. But we are talking 275MB/s of data here. Is there any smartphone that can handle that? Not just speed, one hour of video is 1TB, much more than your average SSD.

It records the high frame-rates to a buffer and not directly to the phone's memory, so there's a time limit for these clips.

Julian: The removable grips are a really good idea, as potentially is the inbuilt stabilisation (provided it can be switched off when needed). Always good to see a camera company trying to innovate.

Tripod shooting?

Handgrip is a good place to sneak in a larger battery and users love that.

JurijTurnsek: Mirrorless bodies should feature a microSD slot alongside the regular SD card slot for redundancy purposes.

Redundancy = rarely removed. You'd sill use a regular SD card as the regular card that you remove when copying files.

Trued1: As a swede I was actually thinking about taking the step from a7rII to the ever so awesome X1D. But after this news that is NOT going to happen. Chinese Hasselblads NO way. Just like both Volvo and SAAB Cars taken over by chinese.........
Please find some SWEDISH investors for Hasselblad!

China is NOT a democracy it is a country who put opposition i labour camps and copies anything made and developed in the western world. last thing I saw was a copied Porsche Cayman. Apparently they have te guts and we should have the guts to refuse their products and apply pressure on "our" companies to pull out of the dictatorship.
I always look where a thing is made can I avoid any product from china I am pleased. Sony has some products still made in Japan and my MacPro is made in the US with pride.

You are a class A idi*t. DJI has been innovating so hard in the imaging industry, that the Hassy dinosaur should he honored someone is giving their very slowly evolving product line a chance by being their owner.

solarider: Non-geek here - but has anyone been able to make a super fast mini computer using something like this? of course it needs an engine/brain, but some brilliant 10 year old might have. ; - )

Basically any Android phone.

Nice, 4K60p! Hopefully, the prices stays the same or very similar.

JurijTurnsek: Finally a respectable skateboarding shot from a non-skateboarding photographer in a review article.

Well, that explains it then. Look at the samples from The Camera Store review and the choice of composition is obviously very different, but in a bad way.

On article DJI announces new Phantom 4 Pro and Inspire 2 drones (63 comments in total)

Drones aside, the camera specs are very impressive. Does high altitude help with heat dissipation?

The Squire: The SD slot is commonly used to conveniently upgrade the internal storage of a Mac Book.

Originally, Apple made this less convenient by ensuring the SD card stuck out of the slot. Fine for occasionally copying files from your camera's SD, but not great for a permanently attached SD card for internal storage.

The market reacted by supplying special short SD cards that would fit in the Mac Books' slots flush to the body.

The only option, therefore, for Apple to protect their product range was to completely remove the SD card slot.

Man, that's so sad ... expanding storage of a expensive laptop with an SD card ... whatever happened to user-replaceable drives? Oh, wait ... some people just can't see beyond Apple.

JurijTurnsek: Disclaimer: I do not buy Apple products and will rely on integrated SD card readers for years to come.

Apple wants a convenient and closed down ecosystem - shoot photos with an iPhone, sync them to iCloud and that's it. If you are shooting with a dedicated camera, you are already considered a dinosaur by them. After all, their iPhone 7 Plus can do bokeh simulation (impressed much?).

As Tony Northup said, there is really no reason why modern cameras don't offer the full app and mobile wireless ecosystem of today's phones. You can cram the needed components into a freaking watch! Sure it would drain the batteries like crazy, but for the average soccer mom type of customer, cloud sync would really be a major selling point. And before anyone has a meltdown - no one would force you to use wireless transfer ... no one, but Apple, that is.

Most people snap some shots (not hundreds at a time like PROs) and then walk around or go home. Wouldn't it be nice it the images were synced before you even come close to you computer (aka mobile connection)?

You guys keep forgetting that the average consumer demands different features than PROs and that a camera can have both.

Mr Keys: Never even used my cardslot on my laptop. Easier to just use the usb-cable. Wont miss it at all.

You should really give it a try - the transfer speed is much faster and the whole process requires about the same amount of effort.

Richard Murdey: I just wanted the 4.5k 3:2 28" non-touchscreen monitor. I would have also welcomed a small, well-engineered desktop workstation.

Instead what Microsoft have done is basically made a better version of this: http://www.wacom.com/en-us/products/cintiq-27-qhd-touch which is great if that's what you wanted, but its a product that is of interest to only a very small fraction of what they could have gone for by just making a really great PC / monitor.

I'd be willing to bet that the touchscreen hardware is not a major part of the final price. The screen looks like the real pricey part here, so you cannot expect to get this configuration a lot cheaper elsewhere.

No one is forcing you to use the touchscreen.

ProfHankD: This is the NEX-shaped APS-C body with IBIS that so many people have been saying they wanted ever since the NEX-5 was introduced... that would have been enough for many people. The catch is, the price point isn't so much lower than Sony's FF A7II... so it's good that it out-specs the A7II in various ways.

Why bother with FF where you need to push the ISO just so you don't get razor thin DOF all the time? APS-C is a sweetspot for many and FF is overkill.

The takeaway: the Pixel duo underutilizes the chip and you should wait for a Snapdragon 830, 4K60p, OIS, HDR video flagships of 2017. Hopefully not Samsung's, since that amount of heat would spell disaster for them ;)
