Is the illegitimate child of a DSLR mother and a mirrorless father

T3: I took a vacation trip to Taiwan a couple weeks ago, traveling all around the country. Mirrorless usage was very high there compared to DSLRs. I think Asian consumers are definitely more open to newer technology such as mirrorless ILC. They are much quicker to embrace these things. Plus, I think they are much less interested in carrying larger, bulky camera. They seem to value smaller and lighter electronics more than, say, North Americans do. Besides, feature wise, mirrorless cameras emulate smartphone cameras far better than DSLRs can, because all mirrorless cameras offer face detection AF, large AF coverage, real-time exposure preview, etc, all though the EVF, without a mirror in the way. So mirrorless is a much more natural and comfortable progression for consumers who grew up accustomed to the features of a smartphone camera.

Mirrorless are as heavy , as bulky, as DSLRs are and communicate with your smartphone, through the same applications DSLRs do .
(By the way, i live where many Asians -among others- spend their vocations so i can see what they carry and it doesn't look neither smaller nor lighter)

davids8560: This growing mirrorless trend is especially good news for vampires. There are probably more pre-orders for the a9 coming out of Transylvania than anywhere else, no doubt. A mirrorless camera with exceptional low-light performance is certain to have broad appeal in that market. Now, if only worldwide garlic sales would diminish.

I'm afraid prices for garlic in China market is rising:

Petrogel: -No RAM upgrade for MBPs
-No USB 3
-No SD Card slot
-These are all ""Cumbersome"" according to Apple .

-Well as a mac user let me tell you what is "cumbersome", Cumbersome is every single update i've done since Mavericks, cumbersome is to have final cut and aperture not working, cumbersome is to have installed double the RAM and get the freezing screen with the stupid rainbow dot.

HR when it comes to smartphones(of same budget) more or less all of them have the same sound fidelity even Samsung.
What homepod offers is exactly what an iPhone or a Smartphone, in general can offer, connected wirelessly or not with a hifi, portable or not.
Astell & Kern, CalyxM, Sony, Onkyo ......etc, has nothing to do with it.

Some smartphones have, for example Sony XA has great sound, iPhones (where you can also use Siri, like home pod) Samsung phones have also great sound.

Stollen1234: i would like to buy a new computer for hobby photography and photo editing..
since you can not upgrade the RAM or hard drive after purchasing iMac..i was wondering which system 21.5 inch model to buy as it is (without the upgrade)..if the upgrade is very critical which one would be?

now mobility is not important..would you buy an imac or get a dell xps 15 ?

Some iMacs are upgradable, new Macbook pro aren't,
this year we also found out that changing the touch bar is a serious pain in the cl-ass

HowaboutRaw
I suppose you already own an iPhone or an Android smartphone, now if you''ll connect it with a wireless (via bluetooth) Speaker or -even better- with your hifi (for even Higher sound quality) , what would be the difference ?
I'm using what Apple Google or Amazon advertise as innovation the last four years

HowaboutRaw, HomePod is a copy of Amazon echo or Google Home which are totally useless.

PhotoRotterdam, Steve Jobs was the Golden Era of Apple, their only innovation those last years was to put USB-C and get rid of USB-3A and the card slot, cause they were “”CUMBERSOME “”.
-Expandability is not my bread & butter, …. Connectivity is, and i've already modified my environment to meet my standards. As for the RAM, is compatible and already registered in my system, the problem was that Sierra is ram hungry, so I have downgraded to Yosemite.
