Gonard: One of the saddest days in American history. American citizens placed in concentration camps. Let's never allow this to happen again.

"placed in concentration camps" -- You need to take a trip to Auschwitz, and you will never say that again.

Looks good. Some photos show a bit of softness where one would not expect, perhaps focus is not 100% (what camera is). Overall rather nice for a superzoom.

Thorgrem: Overheating is the key feature of this Sony line since the NEX-5. Can someone tell me if the this one also has this unique Sony feature, it wouldn't be a real successor if it doesn't overheat.

Richard, stop confusing the experts with facts.

virtualreality: I wish manufacturers would stop selling cameras that are not finished.

"I wish manufacturers would stop selling cameras that are not finished." -- The only finished product is one with the stamp "End of Life" on it.

Neez: Is it fully USB 3.0 Powered??

You may be right. Seagate has different 5 TB "Backup Plus" drives. The one I was looking at required external power supply (included). Not the best marketing, but my fault for not digging into fine print.

There is a separate power supply.

itaibachar: Oly needs to rethink their naming strategy.
It used to be OM-1, 2 etc.
Now its a weird bunch of letters and odd numbers.

"I, for one, don't want to pay higher prices simply because you're lazy." -- Wow, calm down. What higher prices? Olympus is already trying to skin you alive with the latest E-M1, so don't blame agentul for it.

On article Throwback Thursday: Olympus C-3040 Zoom (119 comments in total)

Absolutely wonderful camera. Features that many cameras still do not have (even bundled remote control). Amazing lens. I wish many cameras were made like this today. I tried to ship it for service to Olympus (cleaning, maintenance), but they refused.

Nice of Leica to pick up the slack from Hasselblad.

Tom Schum: The in-lens shutter is the wave of the future. Otherwise, a large focal plane shutter flapping around in front of a large high resolution sensor causes constant problems.
Sigma has a good idea to put a dust protector filter at the point where the lens attaches to the camera, except they still use the dust and oil-splatter producing focal plane shutter. But they're not doing large sensors either.
My guess is the Fuji medium format mirrorless product will be plagued by shutter-dust and oil-splatter problems.
Nobody other than the medium format guys wants to do in-lens shutters. Too much of a leap.
Now, if I could just get the Hassy for $1500 or less....

"The in-lens shutter is the wave of the future." -- Global shutter is the future. The technology is just not here yet.
