    Around a year ago I made a thread (cant remember if it was this forum or another) about how great a manual stlye dslr would be.

    I love the fact it has an aperture ring and shutter speed dial :mrgreen:

    Sorry if this camera is old news, I only discovered it existed today.
    Time to start saving my pennies....

    Whats everyones opinion on this camera, anyone own it?

    Looks like a Dslr to me. I guess I dont understand what manual functions you can do on this tat you could not do on a Nikon or Canon. it just seems to be a DSLR inside of an SLR type body.

    It has an aperture ring like an old film slr. You set the aperture by turning a ring on the lens. There is a shutter speed dial on top, keeping in line with old manual camera design. It also appears to be geared towards manual focus as well.

    If you've never used a manual slr, or can't appreciate the simplicity, then it's not for you. No frills or fancy buttons.
