The Guinness Records people could take a look at the Nicholas Camera Shop in Camden; they might find a new winner ... ;-)

There is still hope:
At least a hundred and eighty some of the passengers told the lawyers to bugger off and weasel money from other 'causes' other than a mistake gone wrong.
The world is full of these blood-sucking parasites and one of the severe causes for its demise, together with bankers and speculators, all blessed by greedy politicians.

"Astropad 2.0 uses 3x less CPU power and 4x less memory than before, extending the iPad's battery life"
Dontcha just love advertising speak? It doesn't really extend the battery life, you know. It uses plenty of it, only less, now they've listened to the complaints.

m3: Fixed screen on a medium format, especially now it's the well-accepted norm to offer waist-level shooting, means this camera began its design phase too long ago and that these designers never took into consideration the true Hasselblad/Rollei tradition by not implementing a swivel screen for this purpose. Shame.

@Thorfinn
Thank you but paying a large sum for a compact medium-format camera and then have to plug in an extra screen isn't my idea of a sensible purchase.
Besides, I'm already quite spoiled by my RX1RII as a near-perfect street cam ...

AngelicBeaver: Interesting video, but I don't understand why this particular photo is so popular. I enjoy a lot of Ansel Adams' work much more.

It's a simple question of word of mouth inflating a given work over time. Da Vinci's Mona Lisa is far less interesting than his Last Supper for example but its popularity is notorious.

Fixed screen on a medium format, especially now it's the well-accepted norm to offer waist-level shooting, means this camera began its design phase too long ago and that the designers never knew the original philosophy with Hasseblads and Rolleis in the first place. Shame.

Oh goody, a Sony RX1RII type camera but with a 90mm lens instead - that would be the perfect tandem for me. Oops, wrong place. Had to say it somewhere ...

electrophoto: that is actually rather impressive... looks to be the first "real" photo editing app on the iPad.
Now if Apple only would lift their silly restrictions on working with real external storage... (and spare me the WiFi / cloud storage options... impossibly slow for a high number of large files.) And exchanging Data between the apps is still a seriously "handicapped" option (creating copies of files through the sandbox stuff).

Especially at the price point for the "pro" pads - handling of storage media & full data exchange is the least I would expect before I'd consider it as a working tool.

You can get a surface 4 for a similar price range (or less) and that thing supports stylus AND mouse / trackpad input... (another thing the iPad should seriously consider adding - mouse support... writing text with the keyboard (I've tried) and stylus is no fun if you have to set the cursor often.

While an understandable request Apple will of course refrain from shooting themselves in the foot and rather you buy their iMac for instance ...

Quite apart from the fact that those of us who indeed cherish the full-frame thin depth-of-field of our Summiluxes and Voigtländers not to mention Noct-Nikkors and the like are a mere few in this mad mass-market world.

@FastGlassLover
You're quite right of course. Given your chosen name I fully comprehend having hit the nerve. My hurried comment clearly didn't clarify what I had going on inside when I chose to speak out.
Seeing yet another product offered by yet another Chinese manufacturer who seems to have reinvented the wheel with the usual spate of poorly written descriptive jewels such as:
" It's globally the first 35mm F/1.2 large aperture lens that supports single-lens reflex full-frame cameras. When taking an image, set the aperture to Maximum f1.2 can conspicuously emphasize the subject on the background, producing a nice picture atmosphere."
and taking into account that there are an abundance of large aperture manual focus lenses in the world, made to I'm sure far more exacting standards, the fact that the only outstanding difference is the mount makes me wonder at its necessity.

Sorry. Mine was a play on words referring to those who spread their bad grammar.
I must have missed something somewhere; what 'brave woman' was attacked in the making of this product?
