  • I started this thread because I use several different cameras and for a long time MFT was part of that. Now I'm not sure what the fate of MFT is and I wanted to know what you thought
  • You just made  left turn in the discussion. I wasn't thinking about the business side of things although I suppose my question did imply the potential end of life of MFT.
  • This threat is getting hard to follow the different thoughts and points... I said previously that I coincided that the advantage of lens size and weight were lost as lenses got faster and faster ...
  • Richard, You almost made my point. I coincide that as lenses get faster the size and weight advantage of mirrorless vs APC disappears however,  you're still left with a larger sensor in the APC ...
  • I believe it is incorrect to say the sensor is responsible for the smaller size of the MFT. It may contribute but the mirror increases the size and weight of the DSLR. And, the DSLR lens is longer ...
  • MFT is mirrorless. Did you mean MFT vs larger format mirrorless? YES
  • Thanks for your response and I don't questions it's correctness but it is getting into the weeds a little.
  • Created discussion thread MFT vs Mirrorless
    Why go to a MFT when today's APC mirrorless camera body and lens combination are the same size or smaller than the current high performance MFT? Background: Once upon a time MFT was the answer to ...
  • Look into Crashplan for small business. I like. 1- They keep everything they backup... even if you don't (check this to make sure I got it right) 2- There file system is easy to use... no ...
  • The simple answer is yes. I expect all manufacturers will employ some sort of internal digital processing in their cameras and smartphones. You can look to the heavy investors in research to lead ...
  • After many years as an avid amateur I arrived at the conclusion that size and weight matters. Especially in the age of APC, mirrorless and mega pixels it is possible to get extremely high quality ...
  • I recommend the new Leica CL for street photography with the 18-56mm lens. It's low priced for a Leica and delivers excellent images at 24 MPs with enough controls to make it fun to use.
  • Replied in TL2 vs CL?
    I didn't mention this in my earlier post but the viewfinder was an important part of the decision to get the CL over the TL2.
  • Created discussion thread Flash for the CL?
    Can anyone recommend an on-camera flash for the CL besides the Leica flash units? lds
  • The CL caught my eye enough to get me to the Leica store to handle it. I liked the look and feel, its light weight body & lens combination and the simple but more than adequate controls.
  • When I re-read my post I expected that response. I use the Nikon for "serious stuff" because I have many Nikkor lenses but on the 18-55mm for the CL
  • Created discussion thread I Got my Leica CL!
    I ordered the Leica CL a few weeks ago and got it on Friday with the 18-56mm. I've been hunting for a light weight walk-around camera for a while and I think I found it. I wanted it to be a Leica ...
  • Created discussion thread Wifi vs HDMI Data Transfer
    I have always used an HDMI transfer to get my image data onto my computer to library and process. Should I be concerned with a camera that doesn't have an HDMI or USB port and uses Wifi to ...
  • I'm so conditioned to using a hardwire transfer between my cameras and computer that I can't determine if the lack of a USB or HDMI port is a serious deficiency. How does the speed of a wireless ...
