On article DPReview TV: A look back at APS film (366 comments in total)

Really enjoyed this. APS film came at a time I was not very active in photography. I vaguely knew about it but what work I did at the time was with my Olympus 35mm system. This was most informative and interesting. Well done and thank you.

Well, it seems that websites just MUST change things from time to time. Sometimes a new manager at some level has to change things just to show he can. Sometimes . Smugmug is a good example. I spent years getting my website there just the way I wanted it. Someone new changed everything and I left. Your new venue here makes my eyes hurt and if I watch it long enough I get a headache. I hope you get the message and revert to the old format.

Paul B Jones: Sheesh. And I thought Canon people were overly-sensitive. You mirrorlessistas are high-larious.

From what I see here in his comments, it seems to me the Olympus system, especially the latest OMD's pretty well meet his criteria. I have an EM-1 since it was 1st available, and there's little I'd change about it. A fully articulated LCD instead of the tilting one. A longer battery life (though I've had no problem with it now). I think a lot of this has to do with how well you understand the camera and how you use it.

I wish they would have put this much effort into the 4:3 system. I'm sure there are lots of people out there with legacy lenses that would LOVE to dump a huge pile of money into a camera for them. I sold 22 of them eight years ago. I'm impatient like that.
