there's already a couple of those on the market. They're called the Nikon D40/40x/60, and the Canon XT/XTi/XSi
well this one looks way smaller than those
and almost as useless and mainstream, I'm sure
that fucker is small.
i hope there's a grip for that thing.... the same size as the body
Oh you mean that P&S with a lens that can fall off.
live view, why does it have the prisim lump?
its not a reflex camera as thread title suggest.
the red one does look nice.
nice lenses however there is no wide angle.
this small sensor worries me.
Their market research showed that people preferred the look of camera with the prism lump, so they added it.
sadly enough, I think this camera will sell pretty well simply because it LOOKS like a professional camera
comes in different colors too!
Panasonic or Olympus should make a digital rangefinder with the 4/3 sensor and Micro 4/3 mount. That would have been cooler than an EVF with live view.
I never really understood the benefits of a rangefinder camera. What's so special about it?
no shake at all. i can get away with at least 2 shutter speeds slower handheld. the camera is rock solid when i take a pic. in my SLR the mirror action shakes the camera ever so slightly. focusing is slightly more accurate, and ability to shoot with a infared filter on the lens.
that and theres amazing lens selection, i think every maker of lenses had a go. what other cameras can i put a canon, nikkor, pentax, leica, zeiss, minolta, cosina, etc on with just one adapter.
we know why panasonic wont do it, but why cant olympus make such a product?
smaller, easier and more precise manual focus (back when that mattered).
so why doesn't nikon / canon use that system?
most old SLR had the penta prisim back then, but if you had one of those slow lenses say f5.6 with a lot of depth of feild on a SLR you never knew if you focused in the center of the depth of feild or at the edges. the rangefinder always would focus in the center (save of course back focus issues).
oh they did!
its an expensive machine to manufacture.
The XTI is the same size
Have you held a 'big boy' camera in compression? Hell, I don't even like the feel of my D80 after I bought the D300... specially w/ the grip.
