It was the same thing for the last several nights in the Olympus OM-1 sale threads. People were warning those with interest that the low price on Amazon meant a grey market or fulfillment through vendors with bad reputations. I bought one of the OM-1s for $1791 with free shipping. It arrived in a sealed box from Amazon in two days, it was registered by OM Solutions as a USA model, and there were those who were concerned over the conjecture. Beats the hell out of me why this occurs--you call it "chicken little" and I call it "rain on the parade syndrome."Is it human nature to partake in hyperbolic conjecture based on vague announcements? I call this the “Chicken Little” syndrome!
John, I somehow find it hard to imagine any kind of hard copy of a video of any description, be it film or digital.That's been my evolution as well so I'm not all that surprised.
I suspect that folks that shoot stills exclusively will become a niche, much like shooting film exclusively or black & white exclusively.
The world is changing. The art of storytelling is changing with it.
PDAF isn't a secret at this point, it's expected. I really hope they've done something in a hybrid to keep up with the jones'. The question is just how 'stills' oriented is it? Did they reduce the body size and do away with the fan?I’ve literally already played with their next stills camera. There is still a FOCUS on them, and it’s excitingly different then the FOCUS they’ve always had. (Hint hint)
