I LOVE YOU!

This selfie trend of mid-2010's presents more problems than solutions... Just saying...

Not sure about you all, but I think that most of the folks who wanted a mirorless system, already got one by now. In my case, it's been 5 productive years on non canikon systems. Sure, I'd like to see C and N develop their own systems. Mainly for the sake of competition.

arhmatic: The title is phrased as a question. It almost implied that the answer is inside. I'd present the facts, and let the consumer decide.

Sorry Rishi, the intent was not to start an argument on this. Really appreciate your work, my daily stop for well over 15 years now since I first came across dpreview...

Well done Nikon!

Just in time for my 10-year mirrorless anniversary! Got my first Olympus Pen in 2009!

On article Why smartphone cameras are blowing our minds (447 comments in total)

Nothing is really blowing my mind...I would not say that, just yet.
Three things--

1. small sensor
2. lack of manual controls - iPhones in particular (unless you get a separate app for that)
3. fixed lenses - soon enough three cameras will be standard, so then we talk...

Am I the only pessimist here, not seeing the advantages of this technology - at the consumer level? Law enforcement or whatever, sure, all the benefits.

I read the article several times, still looking for basic info:

Camera 1 - xxmm, F/? Stabilized?
Camera 2 - xxmm, F/1.8 Stabilized? - I assume this is the "main" camera
Camera 3 - 80mm mm, F/? Stabilized

Can we fill in the gaps?

Of all the camera I used to own over the years, the GoPro was the only one where a spare battery was not needed...

In reply to:

The Davinator: If Canon can produce the camera with good ergonomics, decent sensor and AF, that may be an interesting addition to my Fuji gear.

Why not? He is implying that is keeking his Fujifilm, regardless. Same here. I might be interested in a FF Canon/Nikon, but my X-Pro2 is a keeper.

All the money he spent on lenses and he could not find one cheapo lens that would shave off a few extra pounds, to record a better youtube video?

Somehow, Leica and "stealth" don't go well together...

I understand that the business is destroyed, but I assume that the photographer has a website that would survive a lawsuit. After all, it only takes $10-20/month to pay the hosting and leave the website running. Link, anyone?

Samsung's smashing marketing copy for the S9:
THE CAMERA REINVENTED!

When a phone ACTUALLY gets a larger sensor and ACTUALLY takes better photos, that will be the day it's news for me. The never-ending marketing garbage slogans allied to "revolutionary improvements" claims, fake AI, fake HDR, fake bokeh, fake studio lighting and fake whatever else using microscopic 12mp sensors is getting really really sickening. We are pathetically stuck in this s..t for years and go nowhere, as the prices of phones go up and surpass on an ADDICTIVE CYCLE what you'd pay ONCE for an actual and proper digital camera + lens.. mind-blowing!

..like having an old car we upgrade the sparkplugs, gas additive, improved air filter and better tires every year, and in our imagination it will run better and faster every time.

THE CAMERA REINVENTED, huh? The BS that tech manufacturers manage to convince the whole world of is truly astonishing.. hats off!

Hats off to Apple for inventing the whole "reiventing" BS!

It does bring the bulkiness of the old dslr. Basically, defies the reason I left Nikon...

Just hope that the X-Pro stays as is (or even shrinks a little...)

This begs the question - what is the etiquette? Sneak around someone praying and snap a photo without the person, without his/her approval? Once there is some awareness/approval, the posture is inadvertently staged. What about 99.99% of Holywood type of work? This type of criticism makes no sense.

arhmatic: That's so nice! But Windows should introduce a few more wallpapers. It comes with 5, totally uninspirational ones. What's so hard to spend a few thousand and license a few?
No joke! I've been looking at my solid black screen for just too long.

@milkod2001 - NO, I am not kidding! Microsoft, take a look at macOS as a reference.
@Tan68 - I've learned this 20 years ago.
