  • @Ebrahim Saadawi - Aptina was bought by ON Semiconductor, which is re-directing Aptina's resources toward the automotive industry.

    There's just...

  • I love USB charging. Why in the world wouldn't you want your camera to be able to charge up a battery simply by plugging in a micro-USB? I think it's super convenience. It's not as if you HAVE to...

  • @MikeJ9116 - Price and profit margin are two different things. And as DSLRs continue "incorporating MILC features", that's not going to help with their cost of production. As production/sales...

  • @MikeJ9116 - The world is moving towards fewer parts, greater simplicity, easier manufacturing, more solid-state. MIrrorless cameras have a fraction of the parts or complexity of DSLRs....

  • Well, neither did Sony when Sony launched the E-mount system! But it was an obvious inevitability. The Sony E-mount has a 46mm throat diameter and an 18mm flange distance. The EF-M mount has a 47mm ...
  • @MikeJ9116 - You're talking about a current state with a particular set of cameras. I'm talking about the future. Yes, low light on the M# cameras suck. But the technology is advancing rapidly. ...

  • LOL, Canon is not letting them go. That's what the adapter is for. Canon has explicitly said that if you want to use any Canon EF lenses on their Canon mirrorless bodies, you'll do so with an ...
  • @Kharan - Yeah, the batteries in low-end cameras aren't great. But entry-level users aren't really needing weeks-long shooting on a single charge anyways. So it's mainly a non-issue.

    In a couple...

  • It's not even hubris. It's just business. And successful business, at that. Have people forgotten that Canon started an entirely new SLR system of bodies and lenses when they went from Canon FD to ...
  • @MyReality - Yes, sure. But Canon also has an eye on the future. And even they know that mirrorless will play a significant part in their future. The SL2 will get a lot of people used to the...

  • Ok, sure, I'll take that bet. As I've said, the tide is against you. And everything is in place for FF EF-M. I think it's crazy that you're ignoring that Canon already has short-flange mirrorless ...
  • Except when you use the OVF, you lose all the mirrorless camera functionality, and you're back to using a primitive, dim pentamirror OVF with only nine AF points. The good news is that this will...

  • The 1" sensor that is used in the Nikon 1 bodies came from Aptina, which has since been bought out by another company that intends to move toward industrial applications. It's debatable how much...

  • I use both DSLR and mirrorless. Both have their pros and cons. But for my money (the same amount of money as the SL2 kit), I'd rather get an A6000 kit over an SL2 kit. Yes, you'll have to carry...

  • Except the price will probably go in the opposite direction-- probably cheaper than the original.

  • @The Davinator - Yes, they make money off of their cameras. But it's not necessarily the driving force. Fujifilm makes so much money from their other pursuits that it's not critical to make all...

  • @Sranang Boi - I don't think you can speak for all buyers. The A7 still sells. And it's basically a no-frills FF mirrorless camera for $900-1000. It's still selling well on Amazon (ranked #12 in...

  • @The Davinator - RIght, so you're trying to spread FUD that Fujifilm is suddenly going to yank all funding from their X and GFX systems? LOL. Ok, sure, whatever floats your boat. Seriously? ...

  • @tonywong - What you'll find with EVF shooting is that you chimp FAR LESS, because there's no reason to have to check things like exposure and histogram via chimping after the shot; the EVF gives...

  • @junk1 - No, that's not true at all. I am a DSLR shooter who also shoots mirrorless. I've shot in bright conditions with both. No issues shooting in bright conditions with EVF. The only issue is...
