    Who knows the future, you just cannot say that technology has peeked, cameras may well use a totally different approach in the future, smaller, better quality (IQ) and less effort. Something like a pair of spectacles, which record what you see in 1;1 scale, ie infinitely zoomable....who knows.

    But of course the average punter is very happy with his phone camera, and have to say the phone is so small and handy...………

    I am enjoying the ride, but may have peaked with the EM1 ii, maybe...……….
    It might just be me but I can’t actually read the above due to the chosen colour!

      So this text is written in the light mode and...

      This text is written in the dark mode.

      As I type the text, both appear to be the same light grey on darker grey.

        OK - the different display styles are OK as long as you don't change the font colour. By default the text is black in light mode and light grey in dark mode ans switches, accordingly, whichever display mode is being used to view the text.

          No, the default is fine, it's my at fault, pushing limits as usual....:-(

            I still blame that smartphone for the camera decline. They are smaller and less bulky that the camera. they are with us almost all the time. The quality is getting better and they are almost instant to media.

              What has been slowly ending in real photography is, I think, the mass consumerism we saw before smartphones became good enough for most none serious photographers. The implications for us, as serious photographers is that cameras are going to get more expensive. But I don't think the overall hobby/profession, over time, will get more expensive bearing in mind sufficiency is a thing. Our equipment will cost more but do for longer. That's an important point Robin makes. Fact is, I have an E-M1 mk 2 and a Pen F, but my E-M5 remains a sufficient and tremendously capable camera body.

                similarly I find myself using a GX8 with a 14-140 a lot more and unashamedly using iAuto (RAW + JPEG of course )

                really need to get out more and get back into some “creative” work...
