RubberDials: Fuji has obviously done market research amongst DSLR users and asked them what would make them switch to Fuji and the answer appears to be a mirrorless camera inside the body of a DSLR.

It will be interesting to see how this plays out with existing Fuji users and whether it polarises the user base. I don't think many Fuji users will appreciate the exposure comp. dial being replaced by an LCD panel for example.

The camera is also now heavier and larger than an A7rIII, which is full frame. In fact it's not far off the size of the Leica SL, which attracted ridicule when it first appeared, admittedly with larger FF lenses.

I think there's a trick to utilising market research, as Henry Ford is supposed to have said: 'If I'd asked people what they wanted they would have said a faster horse."

Didn't Henry Ford also say that "A customer can have a car painted any color he wants as long as it’s black"?

That's what they thought when they brought the NX1

I'll be interested in Samsung only when they get back into the MILC market.

marc petzold: I have a dream....it should look like a classic Nikon S2...Rangefinder.

My other dream is busted, since the "Elphi" Hamburgs Elb Philharmony was being created, i dreamed about making a picture with it into the morning mist...2 days ago, somebody uploaded exactly this...but maybe someday i am doing my own....kudos to him, it's a great picture. He used a D500 with 16-80 VR Zoom.

I have no nostalgia for rangefinder-style, but I just don't understand requests for over-sized grips on supposedly compact bodies.

wakaba: Instead of looking forward...N builds an FF box with a new mount. Dumb. That is not going to compete well with my phone or Kinefinity Terra for attention. Simple MF with big LCD, with A,M,P, big prime glass, 6-8k vid. It's effing annoying to see corps beating the same dead horse.

No one will buy your dream camera other than you.

Whenever and however it comes out, it will be blasted and applauded for what it is, and for what it isn't.

Would have been even happier if the robbery never occurred.

This camera could have been a replacement for my DSLR, but alas, interesting concept, poorly executed.

There's 2 ways to stimulate creativity: un-limiting oneself or limiting oneself. She took the latter way. Good for her. Do whatever it takes to succeed. Better than doing nothing.

On article The Leica CL is (almost) what the TL should have been (424 comments in total)

I think it's a nice camera.
I may even consider buying one.
But only if priced at around 250000 yen with lens.

It may, or may not be future of photography.
The future's not ours to see , anyway.

On article How to predict when your camera is going to die (19 comments in total)

Shutter breakdown isn't the only thing that kills a camera.

One of my cameras died because of sensor deterioration. Churned out nothing but pitch-black squares. Shutters worked fine, though.

I hope this product is just a start, and not the end.

We all have to start somewhere, somehow.

Probably cheaper than same number of Omega Speedmasters.

I would seriously consider this camera if they halved the price.

taktak91: Good move for Nikon.
One of the reasons why Nikon 1 series never took off was because they had 'Made in China' on them. If they were made in Japan, or maybe even Thailand, pricing may have been justified.

iPhones, iPads, and MacBooks are all supposedly American products.

Everyone knows that 'American' products now are manufactured everywhere except in America. Even Americans don't expect American products to be manufactured in America any more. That's why iPhones, iPads, and MacBooks are accepted even if they were made in China.

Japanese products are viewed slightly different.

Spectro: wished nikon would team up with samsung or buy some of their tech or patent. Guess we will see what nikon will brings out next year milc.

Such a move would have been a disaster for Nikon, so I'm glad they never did.
