entoman: I think Nikon and Canon may have just died.

No, they haven't - but nor do they need to, and nor should you be wishing for it.

Lawn Lends: Touchpad AF, nice for lightweight lenses. But if there was only some way to put a remote wired touchpad on a grip attached to the tripod collar mount on a longer lens.

You can use phones/tablets/laptops to do this, but there is some lag. How much there is with this camera specifically is unknown.

straylightrun: Not a real upgrade. As an r series resolution body, they should have increased the resolution. Thats the entire point of the r line. This is more like an "a7r II mII" model. Sony's incremental upgrades are getting too ridiculous.

Did you just look at the resolution and stop there? There's no other explanation for your categorization of the upgrades in this as "incremental".

ShatteredSky: Sigh, interesting, as are similar lenses, but I would really appreciate a 18-50 ... 90 equiv. from any brand ... the 18-36 variants are too short for an everyday lens, and since using the NX12-24 24 equiv. is not wide enough. So, why again did Nikon cancel the DL 18-50 ?

The "… 90 equiv" part is a bit confusing. Are you looking for an 18-90 full frame?

This is full-frame 24-105mm. Is that so far off the 27-90 that you are looking for?

FredVasilescu: I can not notice this lens is heavier than Canon counterpart.
Where is the mirorless advantage?

No IBIS on the Canon.

I like the product. I like the design. I like the features. Price is OK. Prints are too small.

Franz Weber: This could be almost the perfect computer, but they forgot to implement a very important feature: antireflective coating of the display. I wouldn’t want to buy a display without anti reflective coating ever again. This is where the MacBooks shine

"Can you run Windows apps in the Mac OS, or by running Windows on your Mac?"

Both.

"and there's certainly nothing you can do on OS X that you couldn't on Windows"

I mainly agree, but there's still one thing. You can run Windows apps on Macs. You can't run Mac apps on Windows.

noisephotographer: Just noted something really strange:
The first image looks colorful in my Chrome browser on Android, but when I download the image it has muted colors in the Google Photos app...

Different color management in different apps.

De Fotoman: Vinyl sounds better than most digital audio.

"The days of high-end audio being a mainstream topic are long gone except for a few audiophiles"

It never was a mainstream topic.

cgarrard: I see this announcement as a first iteration of a unique idea. It should sell enough to fund the next project, hopefully one with a more serious camera (and sensor, etc).

Neat idea.

Leveraging a name with a heritage and photographers' sense of nostalgia is not unique. Period.

Functionally not unique. Guessing you bought in.

Neat idea.

The cartridge you insert changes some settings in the camera. That's it. No different than choosing them from a menu. Except it's infinitely less practical, useful, and customisable.

It's not a unique idea. It's no different than Sony's Picture Profiles or Fuji's Film Emulation settings.

If you are considering buying this: You can pick up a used X100 these days for about $300.

Well, you are the expert on unsatisfied wives, so I'll take it under advisement.

Sounds like it's your wife who would benefit from that feature.

Impressive. What's the crop-factor on the stabilized footage?

The point of this video is being missed. He is saying forget your GAS. Forget your gear upgrade lust. Forget waiting until you have THE camera. Do great work with what you have, and that it's quite likely more than capable of doing whatever you need it to.
