Davud: Put it on a speed booster and mount it on E-M1 II. Then the fun begins.
10mm f/1.0 and 10 seconds handheld possibility.

You get 10mm but then must multiply x2 for small sensor so end up with a 20. Also noise from 4/3 sensors are just not clean enough.

Nikon fm-2 was a great little camera as was the F2. I could afford the camera but not the film and processing. Besides I tore out my darkroom years ago. Much more joy in photoshop and Lightroom.

If he looses the drone industry may suffer greatly.

Antek R: I am trying to post an image of my first camera, Polish-made Druh (a 6cm x 6cm box camera) but somehow pasting pictures does not seem to work here.

I posted to Flickr first then put link.

My first film camera was this used graphic35.
You had two viewfinders, one to make the ghosted yellow image line up in and the other to frame the shot. The two big levers on each side of the lens were used to pull or push the lens in and out. After seeing a roll of Kodachrome projected on the big screen I was hooked. My first digital was an early Olympus point and shoot in the 4 MP range that ate 4 aa batteries every 50 shots. Using full frame D800E, Olympus tough TG4, and Panasonic GH4 these days.

folks were replacing skies in the days of glass plates. Nothing new here. Making it easier is better as long as desired results are achieved. I love adobe for time saved in removing wires and other objects in a scene, just another tool in the toolbox.

bmwzimmer: EOS M5 does have a certain charm to it. If I was to recommend an all around camera for someone like a soccer mom who doesn't know photography very well and also likes to shoot some video, I'd highly recommend the M5. This is the same customer who will never use anything other than the kit lens and perhaps add a slow telephoto and shoot in Auto all the time. It will likely outsell the next closest competitor 5:1 if not more as this camera will be available at every Costco/Walmart/Target

Oh I had a pulitzer winning shot but I underexposed it by two stops and can't recover the image in jpeg.

J A C S: What is VR?

VR is Virtual Reality. There was a time on the internet not too long ago where you would make a series of sweeping panoramic in all directions and stitch them together to form a VR image. Using quicktime software you could pan around in this image. New generation is going to allow you to create a moving video with the same principle, but instantly.

Combatmedic870: Im disappointed.... I really feel they could have done more with it. Heck I could have improved it more then this(front dial, 1/4000 SS, Improved the lens)!

Well....Im sure its a good camera.

I like the compactness of this camera and it's added features but I have to say I would probably make better images with adding a small hip pack and inserting the Sony NEX-6 with better everything for only about $150 more w/kit lens.

tkbslc: Minority Report and 1984 seem awfully prophetic at this point. I'm not normally the paranoid type, but soon everything that ever happens may be in the cloud somewhere.

Have to be thinking that if 50 people in a subway car are wearing these things, crime would just fade away.

Gregm61: Tell us something we don't already know....

I don't think we need to look too far into the future when 4-3 camera will shoot at 200,000 iso and no grain, the only wall we will hit (as Nikon is now) will be too many megapixels for resolving power of the lens. The Market will just keep growing and growing.
