Can the DPxM cameras be connected to an iPad or iPad mini so that you can have a larger screen with which to compose a photograph?

It is absolutely impossible. It is hardware restriction. But it might change in the next DP generation ;)

What sort of cruel tease is this? Hoax, speculation, or maybe even real?

There are rumors for this camera to have an Arca-Swiss compatible rail on two sides.

Only one side :) The other is for all the external connectors.

Hulyss,

You are my idol.  I got the camera about 2 months ago after looking at your photographs with it.



Greetings from Canada =)

Nice picture!

I haven't been doing much landscape/cityscape shooting recently, but I did brave the cold to take a panorama.

Ordered mine yesterday. for 290 (ex-vat) it's rude not to.
but it's not shipping till next week, annoying when it says 'in-stock' when it obviously isn't.
I'm looking forward to seeing what this sensor/lens combo is capable of.

amazon.com has the Sigma DP123 for about $570 with shipping - from Japan...prices are dropping so it might be worth to wait another week or two to see where the price will level out (how low will it go?)

I have the Merrills already, so this is a general question.

When you buy a new photography-related item from outside the USA through an Amazon dealer or eBay individual, don't you have to pay duties on it? How does this work? Do you need to import through a middleman who deals with customs directly? Can an individual deal with customs directly? Does the item languish in customs for months before they get around to releasing it?

I looked into this a little bit when I was considering a RMS-mount bellows lens from India, and it all seemed rather confusing.

this is a good question for FM forums...and as I remember, photo stuff does not incur import taxes into the USA...but it is worth investigating for lenses vs. camera bodies. For example, many people in the USA are purchasing the Canon supertelephotos from Canada - because they are being sold for far less than here in the USA...(warranty is same: Canon North America) - however, for the big lenses and the way they need to be shipped, one needs to pay brokerage fees (about $200 as I recall) - but still much cheaper than buying anywhere in the USA...for smaller cameras and lenses, the seller just sends via post office in his/her home country...anyway FM Forums - this topic is discussed fairly frequently
