I'm profoundly un-impressed. Wanna be an old fart? got 20 grand? buy Leica!!! Here's one alternative ad campaign - it occurred to me while I was taking my weekly shower... Question: Want 25 (or however many) megapixels? Now?? Answer: Buy a Leica and use film. And here's the killer app for Photokina 2006: simultaneous electronic and film photography. Design a camera that gives a 2 or 3 mp instant gratification shot and also puts a latent image on film. Provide the best of both worlds. Stress the archival qualities of film and the evanescence of digital media. Any digicam that uses an electronic viewfinder is already on the way. back to lurkdom... cheers, john scocca On 30 Sep 2004 12:16:56 +0200 <DouglasMSharp@netscape.net> wrote: [Leica] Photokina - Film Dinosaurs > > Good morning all, (at least it's a.m. in Europe) > > A well known company is trying a different angle on market research. > > http://www.film-dinosaurier.de/index.php > > Click for the English version ( the direct URL was too long), read the > article and then click imprint and get a big surprise as > to who's behind it. > I don't know what to think of this at all, so I'll reserve judgment. > Douglas.
