nitroman: Sorry Hasselblad ... but you are simply too expensive these days. I used to love your classic film cameras, but you lost it all with digital and you never lowered your prices.
Times change ... adapt or die.

Akshally, Gmon750: it's the "pros" who are moving away from these expensive paperweights.
In droves.
Try looking at their blogs instead of spouting the silly, irrational and childish nonsense about "weekend shooters" and "pros"!
Might have been acceptable 10 years ago.
Nowadays all that happens is folks shake their heads and poke another photo from their iphone to instagram or similar.

I'm sure I'm the only one, but what the heck is a "cinematic short film"?
"cinematic"? As opposed to what?

Modularity is the key feature of this thing.
If it ever comes to Australia, I'll be getting one!

Gandolphi: We are often told (off) that dpreview is about digital not film photography. So what’s with the above story.

Don't worry, it's not a sickness...

63 grand? Now, THERE is a game that can change as much as it wants, it will never be relevant to me! 😄

I fully expect this to be followed by a lot of other countries where "sales are not worth it". Ah well, they were warned many, many times that upsetting their long term customers was a BAD idea. Serves them well.

Don't everyone rush to buy one!
Then again on second thought, that will NEVER happen!

El Chubasco: I really dislike LR user interface. I wish I could switch to a different platform and stop feeding this beast. Unfortunately there is no other option in the market as robust and efficient as LR is.

I'm very happy with Paintshop Ultimate 2018: cheap, includes Aftershot Pro for RAW and is as good a photo editor as Lightroom or even photoslop will ever be. The days of "only Adobe" are long gone. Folks just have to open their eyes and stop feeding this waste of time company.

Good old Nikon, the "master" of cumbersome, heavyweight cameras...

You mean all the Photoshop editing that goes on to replace foreign elements, the sky, the lighting and the focusing is for nothing?
Wonders will never cease...

I just use a scanner with infrared scratch removal. Unfortunately it doesn't work well with the b&w stuff I love... 🤔

Nikon F6 (nothing else approaches this one)

Well, my used F6 cost me less than my FE2 bought new...
And it is superb.

f100cream: Now if Fuji can bring back Fujifilm Pro 160S and Superia Reala 100 we can really get cooking.

It's widely accepted that film and digital have their strengths and weaknesses and neither can convincingly emulate the other. To date no DSLR I've used can reproduce the skin tones in such a pleasing way no matter how much tweaking is done in the camera or in post production. Don't forget the generally greater dynamic range of film and not having to worry about adjusting raw files for blown-out highlights.

It is, here...

Bring back Velvia 100 and the best by far: Astia!

russbarnes: Can anyone point to just 1 piece of innovation? Anything at all?

MORE "megapixels"?
Isn't that all there is new from Canon?

Nikon decided to say goodbye to their faithful customers, around 8 years ago.
Any wonder those same customers decided to say goodbye to Nikon?

Nikon FE2 or FM3, without a shadow of a doubt!
And in the un-affordable camp, the Nikon F6 - which I will never let go! ;)
