As a matter of interest has anyone else come across the French Pixii camera ?
Looks like they want to out-Leica Leica
No but it looks nice. Shame I wouldn't have much use for it beyond holiday snaps...my dslr still goes between macro lenses or a 70-200 for action.
I had not heard of it. I wonder why they aren’t comparing it with the Fuji XPro series. This is apparently version 2 - it was launched with a 12 MP sensor.
Only has in built memory and battery.
It is a sort of hybrid big brother smartphone camera module. With range finder. But no mechanical shutter.
I do not see much advantage in a system like this for photographers.
More expensive than an equivalent Fuji.
Perhaps it's just another Chinese camera with somebody else's brand name on it?
Tell me you've not read their website without telling me you've not read their website.
I read a long review by a fan - sounds like it is a work in progress with occasional glitches in exposure/wb. Can save a monochrome DNG apparently - throws away the colour information after demoisaicing the file so you can't be tempted to return to colour. I forget where the review was.
Looks really nice, and really limited. If you can afford that, can't see what value it brings over a 'full frame' option. I'd almost prefer it with a fixed lens somewhere around/between 18mm and 26mm.
Yes I did, so perhaps I should have instead suggested 'assembled in France with Chinese and Japanese components'.
The French made some interesting cameras in the 1940s and '50s.
The two most widely known were the Foca 35mm rangefinder and the Semflex range of twin lens reflexes. The Semflex Studio was especially interesting: a Tele-Rolleiflex long before Franke & Heidecke thought of the idea.
I suspect the current subject of our discussions won't be so fondly remembered (but I could, of course, be wrong)
Separate names with a comma.
