chipmaster: Sony at least has something going for it. Can't do photography without sensors... more than you can say about Nikon or Canon, LOL. Hard to be a photography company without owning the very core of it, the sensor. It is interesting times in the photography business.

Canon makes their own DSLR sensors.

Unlike some other camera companies, Sony doesn't say how many interchangeable-lens-cameras (units) they sell. If it was a "bragworthy" number, they would.

I never owned one, but the body design certainly is daring/interesting.

Back then, when Nikon announced a new compact camera model, they actually shipped it. :-)

semorg: The modular design of Karma is interesting. But DJI has such a lead on GoPro that the race is almost over. I think the CEO of GoPro got distracted. I started seeing him on shows like The Shark Tank, etc. This is a sign of distraction.

"But DJI has such a lead on GoPro that the race is almost over."

The drone equivalent of Microsoft Zune?

Now, if Olympus' camera-imaging division could only engineer a profit, or at least break even.

According to the Amazon ad displayed below this article, the Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II only costs $500. What a deal. :-)

DPR should do an interview with Nikon about their stellar DL development process. :-)

mferencz: Sony eating the remains of Nikon and Canon. Give it another couple years. Personally, I'm not a fan of Sony, but they are the future king.

@mferencz: Reality check. In 2016 Canon had a 49% ILC unit market share. Sony claims a (by value) 12% ILC market share, putting them at a very distant #3.

My First Impression: I didn't know that Sony still made SLTs.

I think their [not shown] Yoko Bag is the best model. :-)

harry: With these pictures, Nikon can now be excused for delaying the rollout of the DLs. Despite challenges from other brands/models, the DLs still look solid with many unique and desirable features unavailable from others' latest and greatest.

In a press release, Nikon wrote that the DLs were "delayed due to the serious issues with the integrated circuit for image processing". That's not an earthquake related cause.

With Look Lock [Slide 2] you could display something shocking on the smartphone, and then catch the subject's reaction facial expression.

Or you could display a photo of a puppy, and capture the Aww facial expression. :-)

The horse photo reminds me of the old USA television show "Mr. Ed" the talking horse.

Put all (or most) of your "sensor manufacturing eggs" in one basket, then place that basket in the world's most earthquake-prone area. Great business strategy.

Yay Border Collie!

(I used to have a Shetland Sheepdog, so I'm a fan of the herding breeds.)

On article Hasselblad CEO Oosting to leave next week (164 comments in total)
In reply to:

Josh Leavitt: I don't think there's any need to worry about DJI shifting manufacturing of Hassy's to China. Chinese companies are very aware of the stigma attached to their manufacturing sectors, and DJI wouldn't throw their money away by compromising the perception of quality with the Hasselblad brand - so Hasselblad will remain a swedish company in every sense.

DJI's return on investment will likely manifest in using Hasselblad branding with their drone products. So the merger seems to be win-win solution for all parties, including the consumer

AstroStan: "Made in China" reminds me of deadly dog food ingredients, toxic drywall, toxic flooring, toxic toothpaste, counterfeit products...

Philip Young: Tune that iPhone into a Porno Channel and it'll get me to pay attention with a big smile !!

Teen girls could use Look Lock to display their sex-with-boyfriend photos, and then capture the expression on their parent's faces. Fun for the whole family!

Those things will happen right after I get my flying car. :-)
