mosswings: Well, they're interesting, and at least you can open up both sides all the way for whichever shoulder you prefer to swing the bag off of. But...

This is a very similar idea to a ThinkTankPhoto Trifecta, just larger, and more hip.

The 20L I can see being useful in an urban setting. But a 30 L bag without some form of a waist belt? That's gonna hurt, and quick. I would not be using this bag on a wilderness hike as the campaign page shows.

Obviously designed for a buff 20-something.

Oh, gee, that's what all the designers there are...

Needs... Zipper...

Sweet looking bags, but I don't know about those mag lock tops. Seems like any number of enterprising thieves could just run by, flip the top and make off with your cam equipment. I've always preferred sturdy jumbo zippers to make sure your stuff is totally secure.

Nice and hip but I'll probably be sticking with lowepro

mcshan: Nothing worse than sitting next to some fool at a concert holding up their cell phone for half the show.

That's when you make your point by standing on stilts in front of him. It's become a society of me-first/one-up-man-ship.

I will most likely skip my next car purchase to get this "game-changer." NOT!

ZurichPhoto: I noticed the top control dial does not include (P), a picture of a mountain, a leaf, or a silhouette of a person, and yet somehow it's over $10K :)

Love this. It may very well be my entry point into medium format. Can't wait to see the roll-out in July.

And thank you, Hasselblad, for not announcing an extension of the Lunar line. For that, we are all grateful.

But I'm just over the moon with this annoucement!

In reply to:

OmegaLimit: What software did you use for processing the raw images from the pixel shift? The Camera Store TV noticed that Lightroom has the color artifacts, but the Pentax/Ricoh software is able to eliminate the color artifacts.

I knew it. Flash in the pan!

Potemkin_Photo: Hurry up and release the RX 10 MK IV so I can get this model for 1/2 price. Come on now, I'm waiting SONY. I need my cheaper price.

PhotoFactor: That doesn't look very simple.

Time for Canon to get real and put this in the 5dx with 5 axis ibis

$1500?! Madness for a 1" sensor. Put in a full frame and I'll listen.

elefteriadis alexandros: In old days with special home made super ccd sensor Fuji S3 and S5 is something special, but today with Sony sensor what's the point..
If someone know how to use photohop they can simulate any look.

Yup just too expensive for what it can do and especially for what it can't do. Would maybe pick one up for the cost of a current xpro.

In reply to:

Donnie G: I knew we could do 800 comments today. I just knew it. Gosh, I had a speech all written and everything, but I guess I lost it. So I'll just say thanks to all of the people who helped to make this moronic milestone day possible. 800 comments for a basic ILC camera from Canon that no one's even held yet. What an accomplishment! :))

Funny thing is, at least 3-4 soccer mom/dads have bought these kinds of entry level cameras from canikon, were unhappy, and then looked at what I was using (used 1d series). They shed their tears and then said they'd come talk to me next time before making split second purchase decisions at best buy for cameras or PCs next time. Even the socc mom/dads don't like this level of camera.

armandino: I bought for my brother a 20D with 3 months warranty for $80. Magnesium construction, dual dial, brighter viewfinder 5fps....

Good, used cameras are increasingly the purchase of preference when Canon releases steaming hot ones like this. Got myself some 1d series cameras used for less than $400 with 6 months warranty as well. In today's competitive climate, Canon should've done more to provide a true upgrade instead re-hashing 2009 medieval tech.

In reply to:

Potemkin_Photo: Ricoh GR would seem to be able to do the same thing. You could get 8-10 for the same price.

I think they should at least offer more than 1 year warranty on their cams. Still remember news back in the day from cracked sensors. Not a cool thing to drop more money on this than a nice motorcycle and have a problems with it just a few days/month beyond the warranty. They should go with 5 year premium warranties for this level of cost.

Yeah, thanks for the reply. Yeah, just think the upmark pricing on the Q is too much. More branding than anything else. With gray market 6d probably save more than $1K and probably could spring for 50 1.2L with same budget (one of my fave lenses). I know Leica will never go lower than what they price at as it would kill their bottom line. It's like some luxury cars that do the exact same thing as a fully specc'ed accord. At a certain point, it's just that roof ornament (or red dot).

Q is still expensive for what it does right now. Outfit a 6d or late-gen rebel and you'll get what you need at weddings.

Since the Q is made from Panasonic parts, Panny needs to release a non red dot version for about $1K and dominate the market place. They need some market share gains anyways.
