    I think the Camera grip is still too conservative in Design -
    this one would be way better:

    because photography is more than technology - and " as we have done this all the time "

    As a professional photographer there is 1 thing that became very clear very fast. You do not enter this field of work with the intention to make a lot of money and become very rich (there are many other more likely areas to do this). I (most people I know) do this because we really want to, money comes second. Funnily after working 11 years as a pro now I do very well, passion can be rewarded (even though I made a lot more working as a director for a communications company).

    Anyway, maybe this should also be applied to parties in the suppliers area....

    Interesting point. Everything was obviously better in "The Old Days" when the sky was pink and camera manufacturers cared for photographers more than for the shareholders. To me, there seem to be 4 kinds of camera suppliers:

    - Big corporations that are in it for the money mostly, and would drop the camera division like a turd if it loses money, like Sony.

    - Big corporations with a genuine passion for photography that are willing to spend money on projects that don't necessarily generate a big profit, like Fujifilm

    - Smaller enthusiast firms that have a solid financial base and that manage to make money on most of what they do, like Leica at the moment.

    - Smaller enthusiast firms that are as much at home in the bankruptcy court as at Photokina, but survive by planting their teeth even deeper into the tarmac while paddling like crazy with hands and feet, like Rollei.

    We need them all of course

    Funny -- I've had a lot of trouble getting interested in these cameras or this thread. They are simply brain dead dumb and butt ugly. The end.

    To me, the Lunacy debacle makes it tempting to go out and buy a brand new vintage camera. The Rolleiflex FX-N, yet another update of the more than 80 year old Rolleiflex, now costing just over $5,000, which is less than the Sony Lunacy, and it's a real, vintage, brand new classic, fully functional and a great photographic tool too. It obviously won't sell in great numbers to the ignorant nouveau riche, and won't leave much profit for greedy venture capitalists, since the sticker price most probably reflects real production costs. But what a temptation

    the two eyed Rollei saved DHW´s butt. It sells like fresh bread in China and Asia. And I even dare to say that DHW has a growing aspect today, they hired a lot of people and are restocking on manufacturing gear. Very, very GOOD !

    something about Fuji: I think you need to see that they are not "another kind of big corporation ethics or Photography Philanthropics " it´s simply that their portfolio is also historically in the film business and their roots are photographic. They do pretty well in several other branches, they are- fo course - profit driven - but better centered to their core business and this is the reason why they survived and Agfa and Kodak did not.

    And of course, being the last man standing also helps a bit as getting customers from the passed away.

    and finally thanks for category 4 - I recognize myself !

    Thank you for the good news about DHW, Stefan. Most of my family's childhood photos where taken with a Rolleiflex Baby, and I still regret selling it. Many fond memories indeed, and I still think the TLR is a great concept. Must be, having survived for over 80 years, don't you think?
