It's too early to panic. :-) Nikon is scheduled to release detailed financial results for their fiscal year on May 10.

As if virtual reality goggles weren't geeky enough, this takes geekiness to a whole new level.

Arca45Swiss: 12 Megapixels is a good laugh. Buy a Phase One 100 megapixel back for a lot less

The manufacturer claims:

"75 micron pixel size--These are very large and sharp compared to high resolution small format cameras."

Tungsten Nordstein: I'm not clear why this is called a single-shot camera. Single-shot implies you can only use it once, which I'm sure is not the case.

It looks like a fantastic thing to try. I'd definitely give it a go. I wish him all the best and hope some of the innovation trickles down.

From the product page:

"One shot means the whole sensor is read all at once. Scanning backs have to read parts at a time, which are not useful for subjects that move, and they don't work well with strobes."

On article Canon EOS M50 Review (1312 comments in total)

I don't care about video, so the 4K issues don't matter to me.

The price (with lens) seems too high for what you get though. It doesn't strike me as being a good value.

On article Blackmagic Design announces Pocket Cinema Camera 4K (409 comments in total)

I can't buy this camera, because I don't have any pockets that are that big enough to fit the camera into them. Even my big down winter jacket doesn't have pockets that are big enough.

Ian: Queue the usual comments about how expensive it is. I don't own anything Leica, but I don't own a Ferrari, either. They're both expensive and most of us can't afford them.

Get over it and go shoot what you've got.

Queue the usual "anyone who thinks that Leica is overpriced is jealous" comments.

"The reign of the DSLR" will be over in another twenty years or so.

In the mean time, even in Japan and Asia DSLRs continue to outsell mirrorless.

ttran88: Pentax going mirrorless would instantly solve it's AF hurdles. And if they are brave enough going E mount as well will also satisfy their need for modern full frame lenses. Just add pentax pixie dust on e mount and they will have a cult following.

Canon finally submits and uses Sony sensors on their high end mirrorless. Mirrorless is all about the sensor (bsi, stacked, LSI, copper wiring) and Canon seems no where near the requirements for a high end FF mirrorless.

Nikon is stubborn, they will try to use F mount for their FF mirrorless and will fail. Z mount gets un-announced like their DL line of cameras.

Once prices for FF mirrorless falls due to saturation (actually already happening), Sony will take on medium format and bring their sensor tech (bsi, stacked, etc.) To that realm.

Price drop of full frame will put tremendous pressure on Fujifilm, Olympus and their prices. Fujifilm will focus on medium format and the surprise here is Olympus will as well.

"Canon finally submits and uses Sony sensors on their high end mirrorless."

No. To the contrary, in their financial documents, Canon repeatedly emphasizes making more key components themselves.

Canon prides themselves on having a huge number of patents. A future full frame mirrorless camera will give them an opportunity to actually use some of them. :-)

Cheng Bao: Where is Nikon interview?

Nikon was in hiding, so they didn't have to talk about unpleasant subjects like closing the factory that made Nikon 1, KeyMission being a sales flop, their lack of a premium compact camera (DL), and mirrorless in general. :-)

D'oh! (Trying again.)

Even in Japan and Asia, DSLRs continue to outsell mirrorless. In The Americas and Europe, it's not even close

justmeMN: Reality check (CIPA numbers):

Last year, in The Americas, only 22% of interchangeable-lens cameras shipped were mirrorless.

Last year, in Europe, only 30% of interchangeable-lens cameras shipped were mirrorless.

The trend is towards mirrorless, but there is a very long way to go before it becomes the dominant form factor.

@Charrick1: (CIPA numbers) Worldwide, by value, it's 62% DSLR, and 38% mirrorless.

(CIPA graphics don't have DSLR versus mirrorless value comparisons by region.)

Agreed. I find it strange that their prettiest version isn't available in the USA.

trungtran: That thumbnail looks like he was not happy holding that lens
