BlueBomberTurbo: The SpyderCHECKR chart's layout is off from the standard. Looks like you'll be stuck using Spyder's own software with it...

And Spyder's software really s*x!

Manfrotto's current design always feels a bit dodgy to use.

CameraLabTester: Pocket camera with a Full Frame chemical sensor.

Megapixels open to your choice [depending on scanner ability].

A pristine MJ:]ii is on my desk ready to roll loaded with Velvia.

My only anxiety is the availability of the batteries. Eveready please please don't stop producing the power supply for this gem. As you can see, there is no battery grip for this camera, it would be swallowed up inside it...

.

Buy a rechargeable CR123 battery and charger from ThieveBay. I did for my Contax G2 (uses CR2 though).

electrophoto: So it performs worse than an a6000, has no EVF, sluggish performance, has a very limited and not really special lens collection, needs an adapter to make use any good lenses... has only one really not so good control dial...

I think it's canon's attempt at: "hey, look nikon, we have an APS-C mirrorless interchangeable lens camera".

complete fail.

Sounds like a car that pulls to the right, wipers work most of the time and is under powered...but it still is a good car because it has a brand name on it!

"Sluggish autofocus speeds
Mediocre depth and subject tracking
Very poor battery life"

...Sounds like a old girlfriend...another swipe left for Canon again...no dates for you :)

Photoman: Forget 8K in Australia. The dumb government wants to use copper NBN instead of fiber optic and now Telstra know the government wants to go NBN way, so they don't bothet fixing or upgrading their network, as they want to the government to do there job....

About the best I can get at home is about KB/s 160. When I move I hope I get better speeds.

I couldn't sell enough of these Sony Mavica cameras. Schools and Government Departments just love these cameras.

lattesweden: Also the Hitachi MP-EG1 from 1996 that saved jpegs and mpeg 1 videos to a detachable hard drive, sitting in a dedicated slot, was a funny camera. I reviewed it for an IDG magazine here in Sweden without knowing what it costed and had it with me to a party where it waltzed around among a lot of my friends that recorded silly stuff. I realized how lucky I had been when I did get the pricing info, I would have needed to work for free for a rather long period if it had been broken...

I have one of those to!

lattesweden: Another camera worth remembering is the DaVinci from 1993 that printed the image on a thermal paper roll. We sold them at the electronics shop I was working for. I still have some images from it with the "ink" intact.

I got one of those just recently. I also found out that Casio did something similar as well.

I was excited till I heard the word "Detachable"...really? Another detachable module for a phone. So much easier to carry your camera instead and like OliverGlass said, put in a 1" sensor like Panasonic did and maybe a twin lens system :)

I get mine through the internet (Fetch TV), but slow speeds means low quality where I live. Most tv viewing is Netflix, Stan etc, so slow government changes means slow internet. Australia is behind Kazakhstan now. Borat has better internet speed than me!

So would four years of photography or $99 be a better investment???

The last photo of the women has some really bad shadows in it. I think a Phottix Mitros flash system makes more sense.

Why do I see stories like this first on PetaPixel and then DP 1-2 days later?

villagranvicent: I have the basic A7, -payed 950 dlls for a like new camera and kit lens- at first I hated but regardless of the short comings I am starting to get fond of it; gives great IQ and I see no point to sell it for a few hundred bucks which won't give me anything better.
By far is the best deal with new FF cameras so I am glad they still make them.

Tell me about it. It was norm for the time and the Aussie dollar was good back then. Sony were eager to get people in to the system and were doing the free adapters anyway (Metabones-EF,Leica M), but chucked in the 28-70mm for Xmas time only, so I couldn't so no!

I would agree as well. I picked one up in Oz for AUD$1250 in 2014 Xmas sales and that came with a bonus FE 28-70mm and a LA-EA4 adapter. I sold both, so the camera only cost me $750!
