pumrel: They haven't produced anything camera-related since 2005. I am skeptical.

Yashica does not exist any more. Just some no-name maker trying to milk the logo.

ybizzle: There are people who have no food, shelter, or can afford shoes on their feet that have something real to worry about...And then we have these idiots. It's really sad what this generation considers problems.

Just this generation?

Make it at half the SL price.
Don't force new mount (buy license for E-mount?).
Get the controls right.
Give it dual card slots.
I will buy it.

onlooker: "famed Zenit camera brand" — Famed? You never used it, did you? ;) I did, and after fighting rusted spools, misaligned film plane, etc., I was soooo happy to switch to Praktica. The quality difference was not even funny.

The Davinator: In the camera or you managed to open it?

Saurat: I believe there is a huge market for a stripped-down full-frame digital camera with ALL video capability removed. Strictly stills only. 24mb sensor, tilty screen, dual cards slots, 5-8 fps. Price around $1000. 'Build it and they will come.'

Eric Hensel: No dual card slots :'-(
(I have it)

Cameracist: Choose one: A Samsung phone with a Samsung badge, or a Samsung phone with an Apple badge.

I couldn't care less who makes the disposable hardware in todays' consumer electronics. Just pointing out the "archrivals" basically come from the same factory. Samsung makes the number one feature of IP X, the display, and I suspect the processor as well. Maybe more parts. I won't buy either. At least not at this point.

"Olympus, Sony and Fujifilm can only cover a small part of that. So far there is no professional using their products. "
...and there is the whole problem: arrogance of so called "market leaders" that separates them from reality.

Mazenmazen: creative photographers always prefer film as the prints in the art gallery stir hearts. nothing matches a print's authenticity and charm exposed with projected light through emulsions of color and shades created by the organic reaction to light. Even a polaroid shot makes its way to the wall and remain there for decades. there will always be film as long as creativity lives. Digital photography is for commercial use, cost less and fast output but lacks in realistic detail

Weird. I dislike digital photographs because they look too realistic. Film has its 'feel' which I like.

Georgescanvas: The hipsters are taking over the world.

I see them walking around inner city districts near me kitted out in the whole package: tight pants; long beard; combover; second hand film camera; Dunlop volleys....

You can see me with a film camera quite often. Long hair, unkempt beard, washed out T-shirt and socks in sandals.
Am I hipster or not? :D

Canon should rename itself to Kanon.

I do sometimes use Canon DPP or Olympus Viewer to get the same result from RAW a camera JPEG would give me, but I do not need to connect the camera to my PC - the software does it by itself.
Why not in this case? What are the benefits here (besides when using slooow computer or tablet)?

There are many crazy patents from all camera makers, but most of them stay on paper. Sadly.

dccdp: You realize that the picture became "viral" because people didn't know it was staged. This is the photo equivalent of fake news. People believe it true, are shocked or impressed by it, then share it compulsively.

No, it became viral because it is easily altered into "funny" jokes. Of course it is staged, everyone knows that.
