Wow :shock: Isn't that amazing. I wonder what the cameras will look like, and which big brand names will have them, and at what cost. I also wonder if they will have the small portable point and shoot cameras, that the younger gen love, and if what they will have as an equivalent for DSLR's. So interesting, I can't wait for more info!
Thanks for sharing that link Beachbum 8)

I have read about this new concept before - "living pictures" I think was the headline.

Truly awesome concept, I wonder how much this kind of technology will cost when it hits the high street.

The trouble with advancing technology, is if you keep waiting for the next innovation that is just around the corner, we would never buy anything - but I must admit - this does sound interesting.

but how i see it ralph is that DSLRs could become cheaper ... i already have my eye on one that i like but im not game to buy it at this stage although i believe it a very reasonable price..

so i will watch and wait for now.. ;)

Yes, you are probably right. As soon as any new model comes out, the previous ones, however good, take a price hit.
