I wish to have a Ipadpro or something else has even less bazels to be my home jukebox, photo album & atlas.

Since you can't add more storage or use or audio files the way you want (iTunes only!!!) IpadPro is not my pick. But since no other screen as high tech as Ipad Pro 10.5. It is time to wait.

So, Kodak! Realise that, internet is very reliable now. Almost no one has doubt to lose their Instagram, Flickr or 500+pixel photos. So why people need to print things ? Besides, people gonna use their tablet cameras to scan theirs old printed photos...

On article Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III Review (589 comments in total)

Fair scoring from Dpreview as usual. I bored to see so called "new model" of cameras, repeats same specs.

This one is beautiful. Also allows sigle hand operation, that I appriciate but why no mic input ????? Just like two previous ones! Also same sensor....

It ia good but just good! No need for any medal/award.

There is only one XZ-1 for me. And she accomodates a F 1.8-2.5 28-110mm zuiko lens front of it. Her screen is at back!

Sony, your products are always extremely desirable. I hate you :) but you push me to love.

No it is not. It is a consumer stuff. Also seen all those commercials, teasers... they targeted everyone.

If it would be pro only, it would advertise differently. Maybe we wouldn't see it on dpreview at all! Also pro's do and will use whatever they want/need. No need to describe "pro". Seriously

Look what others do! I wish such continuation for GM1 body. It still has enough real estate to provide 4K even at 20mpx by new sensor ! The smallest of M43 cameras with a good video quality, much better than any rx100 versions (sorry sony fanfolks!).

All Panasonic need to to was made such housings, which accomodates its own lens! Just attach the camera in to housig via mouth... Voila!

I wish to see an underwater housing, which has 12-45mm F 1.8 lens with a macro feature built in. And attaching tiny little gm1, in the water, where things floats hence no IBIS needed.... but yeah. No hope!

Since we, dpreview members commenting here that10 cams already has been sold!
Buyers might belong to different age or income groups. But all belong to same intelligence group; dumb!

(obviously I can't own one hence I am jealous ;)

I prefer an Ara Guler edition. Or a Hermes edition, with its awesome leather elegance.

This one is not my taste... (even if I would be a millionaire)

Finally, my 6 inch fantastic monitor has a use! (Nokia 1520) Hopefully it works with Windowsphone too!

In 2006; I bought a 120GB hard disc, that you can carry everywhere with you.
Since 2016; you can buy 128GB microSD card and you can lose it anywhere, it is that tiny!

So, if your concern is compactness, then wait. But if you afraid to lose your stuff (photos, music, documents, videos and more!) then buy one. Now!

(To the owner of the 15.000€ worth of equipments)

Sir, I doubt your ticket cost you more than 3.000€, Unless you were flying from Moon to the Earth, in a direct flight!!!
Yours belongings were much more expensive than your plane ticket or even that flights pilot's monthly salary! Are you fool ?

I hope you have insurance, a good one to cover your irresponsibility. Or a food lawyer to sue that airliner!

Another thing; in that time period (4-6 hours) a painter can paint such pepper. But critics would be:

-the light and shadows are in the paint surreal. How come light comes from everywhere and no shadow nowhere!

-what kinda pepper is this! It is not a nature-morte, it is a surrealistic painting.

Photography proofs that the pepper is real and bends the light in extraordinary way.

Before digitalizing; I mean think about EVERY SINGLE WAY OF DIGITALISM - www for any type of infornation (news, communication etc), gps for the navigation at seas, synticisers at music and of course photography. It made everything achievable and very quickly indeed!

All the beauty of "dedicate, work, fail, try again, success" circle has wanished. Imagine, even after 6 long hours, it was possible to lose that final image at printing stage! Just making that photo "exist " is worth great respect.
Fantastic story.

Also one other concern, Pen-F is beautiful. But since flash is not built in, and GM1 is exist. That guy ia no ULTRALIGHT.

NONE of the m43 quality zooms ( 2.8-ish) are small! And I don't get it...
Think about olympus 17mm 25mm 45mm 1.8 lenses... they all are small. Why no F 1.8 and small as those... why!!!!

On article Leica chairman contemplates Leica smartphone (115 comments in total)

He wants to call someone from a Leica digital camera. To achieve such goal, had to find a way to integrate a Nokia 3310. Which has no android, no nothing! Just a phone. Plus tlyou can play snake!!!!

And you truly can take leica photos! What kind a brand-slave a person can be! "Oh apple, please make a trash bag, that I can sort my litter!!!" :D
