steelhead3: American corporate meets French way of doing business...Good Luck Apple.

Most western countries give workers better rights and conditions then the US. Like any system the companies work out how to operate within the law. People are still able to be sacked but you have to follow due process.

Will B Milner: Cool camera! Would never be able to afford it...

In the digital age today's $10000+ camera and lens will be a fraction of this in 3 to 5 years second hand. It will still be the same camera (if cared for properly).

beckmarc: Great travel camera but it will be a target for thieves

A bit of black tape over the Hasselblad label might help. It is over $10,000 worth of gear in a small portable size.

EthanP99: I was hoping to use old mf lenses on this.

Good point. I wonder if it also has an electronic sensor based "shutter". Otherwise you would be limited to those lenses with inbuilt shutters

I bet the adapter manufactures are getting active as we speak

The End

Lets hope that MF sensors will drop in price over the next few years and we will see cheaper fuji, Sony and Pentax equivalents to this camera.

raztec: And the Ig Nobel prize for product development and marketing goes to...

Not sure who is the dumbest: the genius who came up with this concept, the managers who approved it, or the hipsters who will buy it?

It may sell very well for nostalgia reasons as well as to the hipsters for its retro chic

In reply to:

ProfHankD: $50 for 2.5 minutes... that should keep home movies limited to tolerable durations. ;-)

Honestly, the only good thing about this is that it probably means there will be more modern support for dealing with old Super 8mm movies -- like the ones so many of us have sitting around waiting to be digitized.

Two excellent points. All you need is one cartridge of super 8 to do a summary of xmas day etc. with digital video people just let it record with no editing in camera so that it is too long and boring to watch. The film photography project have a long running podcast which recently covered this exact issue.?3 minutes is a lot of time for a home movie and more then enough to tell the story of a family event

On article Nikon announces development of flagship D5 DSLR (442 comments in total)

I hope this means we will get an updated Nikon DF with refinement of the interface. It was a good first effort but I think it could be a brilliant camera with a few changes and improvements. One can hope

On article Studio tests and samples: Leica SL (beta) (754 comments in total)

To me the d750 sensor looks the best. Now if only Nikon put this sensor and image processing technology in a mirrorless body I would be sold. Maybe somthing that looks like a Nikon s3 with autofocus and a sL style EVF.

In reply to:

yahoo2u: ....."All three lenses will feature a Sony E-mount for use with full-frame Sony cameras sans an adapter."
.
It is "without an adapter"
.
If you want to throw in french expressions while writing english go to france.

Sans is also used in Australian English (colloquial use) to be mildly funny or ironic. Certainly most people know that it means without. Another example is that there is a department store in Australia called Target which is at the lower end of the market but as a joke people say they bought an item of clothing at "Target" pronounced in the French way. It is not used in a mean way but in a self deprecating ironic way.
The French are more worried about English infiltrating their language then we have any right worrying about French influences in English

beckmarc: Great News. I hope it can take pictures with the look of the old Kodak colour infrared film

Good to know. Yes I did mean Aerochrome. The closest i have seen digitally has been from modified sigma cameras. I also wonder if you will need IR filters on your lenses to take normal photographs with this camera

I wonder what film stock they used (to get the discussion back to photography) It looks like a higher ISO slide film. I get similar effects if I shoot Fuji Provia 400X in low light without a flash. Any other suggestions?

On article Meta35 pulls metadata from film cameras (38 comments in total)

What a great idea. In many ways these SLRs are similar to modern DSLRs in the way they function.
