Digital Rangefinder Camera


General Photography

I just bought a new digital camera - a (cheap) digital SLR. My choice was more or less dictated by the fact that the only digital cameras with acceptable performance (nb: acceptable performance is quite subjective) are SLR’s. As much as I hate SLR’s, there just was no other choice. But check out the Epson R-D1, the first digital rangefinder camera, which seems to be modeled after some of the Voigländers (and not really after a Leica as they seem to indicate there). If you have never used a rangefinder you probably won’t be able to appreciate why this is utterly cool. Also check out Epson’s official info sheet.
