    I took this photo of him with my iPhone while he was still setting up to to take a shot.

    My Olympus OM-2, old-Sokol, taking a shot is a couple seconds. Flip the switch on, focus, shoot, assuming you've preset the aperture to something reasonable for conditions.) A little less if the power switch is already on (but it really kills the battery).

    No. That arrangement is based on having a roll of film with a feed spool, a take-up spool and lens and shutter in the middle.

    There have been lots of attempts at non-conventional designs. They tend to fail in the market.

    What I want is a digital camera with a large square sensor so I don't have to thing about "portrait? Or landscape?" There's Hasselblad (at $33k for the body, and it's a 4x5 sensor), but pretty much every everything is a 4:3 aspect ratio.

    Admittedly the Hasselblad is a 100 megapixel sensor,so you've got beaucoups pixels to spare.

    But a large, square sensor would make a lot of sense.

    What I likw about the Leica shown in #5 is the strap looking stout enough to prevent wory about failure. The stram on my Fugi doesn't really seem stout enough to be dependable under stress.

    Confusing naming - there is also a Fujifilm digital X-T2.

    Simpler is better, except when complicated looks really cool.

    Boing! Relics of the past.

    You can take my 12:30 reservations at Spagos.
    Without friends none of this is possible.
