Meanwhile, Hasselblad has announced plans to sue Polaroid for infringing upon their square format. Upon hearing that, Rolleiflex announced plans to sue Hasselblad for the same infringement of shape. And Kodak is suing Rolleiflex. No one, however, is choosing to sue Kodak given that the only assets left are a case of bottled City of Rochester water and some prototype models of a new Super 8 camera, which no one really wants.

Photoevian: So, we must get on the planes naked because clothes are flammable?

Only if you're powered by lithium batteries and are trying to check yourself as luggage.

User7146803616: Could understand the point of this camera if you could choose between a film or digital cartridge. Will stick with my FM2 and hope someday that I will be able to buy a digital cartridge for this - if there is one out there, please let me know.

Today is your lucky day (although it looks like you'd have to find an F instead of the FM2)?

Can't say that it does much for me, but there's an option out there.

On article Nikon D850 added to studio scene comparison (464 comments in total)

The D850 must be the best. It's the only camera that resolved the peacock feather. The other cameras couldn't come up with anything for that!

There are days that I think that getting a drone would add a fun new dimension to my photography. And then I see things like this and resign myself to the fact that it won't be long before flying drones will require a pilot's license or something near it because of operators who do things like this.

CopCarSS: An unexpected and unprecedented camera would be a digital TLR with a square sensor. Do that, Yashica, and you will have my money!

T3, I agree that it's unlikely. Just saying that it would be both unexpected and unprecedented. Digital rangefinders aren't unprecedented.

samtheman2014, My YashicaMat LM never fails to put a smile on my face when I pick it up!

Interesting to see the Graflex there. Mark Dalzell of The Film Photography Podcast shot a Folmer and Schwing Auto Graflex at the Race of Gentlemen as he discussed on Podcast Episode 164. Complete with some oval wheel shots a la Lartigue. Try that with the Phase 1 camera! ;-)

I'm surprised by the lack of people shooting with box cameras for a different look. Given a choice between a Holga and a Number 2 Box Brownie, I'll take the latter every time. It's far less likely to have light leaks, the vignetting is nowhere near as bad, the negative is 50% larger and I like the overall look much more (though YMMV on that last one, of course). There are a gazillion box cameras out there. Some are stupidly cheap, some are great users (the No. 2, for instance, takes 120 film) and some are fantastically good looking (ever seen one of the Beau Brownies?). With the exception of the viewfinder glass which gets dirty and hard to see through sometimes, they should mostly be functional thanks to their simple construction. Even the shutters are amazingly simple and more than likely ok to shoot with. In a rut? Pick up a box camera and try a roll through it!

One would think that a photographically oriented company would create posters that contain...you know...photographs when celebrating a major anniversary.

Toselli - It would be. Hence my enthusiasm if such a lens were brought back!

Is this the digital equivalent of a film stock being discontinued? Did anyone write a song about Lexar cards that we can all start singing like we did with Paul Simon's Kodachrome on December 31st, 2010?

If they had made it anymore dramatic, one of the pilots would have had to go inverted to "communicate" with the other.

Towels. The most useful thing for photographers and galactic hitchhikers!

"A towel is about the most massively useful thing an interstellar hitchhiker can have. Partly it has great practical value. You can wrap it around you for warmth as you bound across the cold moons of Jaglan Beta; you can lie on it on the brilliant marble-sanded beaches of Santraginus V, inhaling the heady sea vapors; you can sleep under it beneath the stars which shine so redly on the desert world of Kakrafoon; use it to sail a miniraft down the slow heavy River Moth; wet it for use in hand-to-hand-combat; wrap it round your head to ward off noxious fumes or avoid the gaze of the Ravenous Bugblatter Beast of Traal (such a mind-boggingly stupid animal, it assumes that if you can't see it, it can't see you); you can wave your towel in emergencies as a distress signal, and of course dry yourself off with it if it still seems to be clean enough.”

Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

Wow, I don't think I've read a negative review on this site in at least 10 years. Anyone can earn a gold or silver rating at DPR. It takes special talent to get a 2.5 star rating. Way to go, Nikon!
