CaMeRa QuEsT: There is one very important reason why I dislike fixed lens big sensor cameras: when their sensors get dirty, and they do get dirty from the lens pumping air in and out whenever it's focusing or extending/retracting when turned on/off, the only way to clean that sensor is disassembling the camera, and that's something usually beyond what the photog can do himself/herself: it needs to be worked on by a technician, and that costs money.

For the most pocketable APS-C sensor camera with a fixed prime lens, I'll consider a Canon M10 with the 22mm: I had the M2 with that same lens and boy was it small, the M10 is about the same size, does selfies, has a built-in flash and is lighter, just not as well built (M10 is all plastic, M2 was all metal).

Prime lens, yes. Fixed lens, no.

barrym1966: Interesting I just scored a destination wedding in Italy. I am in the UK does this mean I won't be able to take my camera gear? I sure as h3ll will not be checking it in as backache and have it kicked broken and lost by the incompetent baggage staff that every airport seems to employ

Did you see Italy on the list?

I can see a lot of dropped lenses using the Beacon design.

What's the story on the scratch showing on the X-T2 "prism" hump?

Paint wasn't dry?

No. That's a purse.

LFPCPH: My favorite camera is my old Olympus OM-1. Alas it is not digital ... but sometimes I just play with it to get over my abstiences.

What?

Photo-Wiz: I'm still yawning. Maybe it's just me. But I don't understand the raison d'etre for this camera. Has Kodak not heard that while it was hibernating the world has moved to pretty cool video cameras on virtually every phone and every camera?

How long have you been waiting for a chance to say 'raison d'etre'?

User9180204109: Does this mean a potential new life for my Beaulieu super8 cameras (4008 silent & 5008 sound, with excellent long power zooms by Schneider & Angenieux, respectively?

I am presuming the Kodak super8 cartridges are the same as 40 years ago?

Super 8 cartridges have been available all along. However, the current offerings are negative stocks only for color, and a single black & white reversal stock for direct projection.
