(though oly and panny had done so...) but looking forward for C & N for it...haha
may be engineers out there in C & N having prototype already? i guess...
Take more snapps and post more.

You want to buy a camera and you got no idea what the camera can do and cannot do. You can quote but you cannot do a proper research on your purchase. If you like LCDs so much, why not get a video camera? Their LCD screen is definitely bigger than what you can find on the DSLRs. Go try to do macro, sports or manual focus using the LCD, then you will know how good the VF is for.
Live preview might be good, but for DSLR, it is nothing more than a novelty. Good to have but useless for most of the time.
Errr... will it be still termed as lens reflex then??? Maybe will be known as DSXX... So you can call it whatever you like...
Medium format may also have live preview... Yeah...
Maybe by that time, the camera will be built into our retinas... Just blink and picture's captured....

LCD lover... stick to prosumers lor.
Anyway, it is known among divers that when using the p n s LCD to shoot underwater, esp on macro subjects like nudibranch and seahorse, sometimes will get OOF. The focusing is off sometimes.
Now that i got my dslr.. i'm loving the hang of the VF, so damn sharp compared to the LCD days.
Anyway, if you say the VF is so damn small that an eye patch is needed , wait till you try aiming at a prygmy seahorse thru a VF behind a mask underwater .
If Nikon can just create a 1-inch viewfinder, that would be just great! Closing one eye n using the other eye to look is simply
My impression is that DSLRs has always given the best image quality and flexible zoom ranges thru its myriad of good lenses. Thatz why, i believe i should go down this route. No doubt the person behind the camera is much more important. I have taken which i believe great pictures using my G5, but after looking at the sharp and crisp photos taken from these DSLRs, i really think i should invest in a good camera system that can deliver such clarity!
why didnt i complain for the live preview ? because i do not see a need for it.
why didnt the pros using medium format complain for a live preview ? why didnt the semi pros ask for live preview ?
If nikon and canon did realised this problem they would have done that way long ago den to create one now.
in a photographer's point of view, its a stupid product to have on my dslr. and of course in a designer's point of view. it looks great. but theres NO DEMAND for it.
come on... you are given a 90-10% field of view on your viewfinder, i believe everyone can see what they are shooting, and they do not need a 2inch LCD poping out there showing them.
but as fellow designers. i hope we can respect the photographers out there and the traditional culture.
"One man's meat is another man's poison"
for me. that gadget. IMHO. its a useless piece of junk on the land. but in the sea. yes. its good.... i must say.
i am sure you studied design before. so i guess you would want to reseach on WHY nikon and the big players in the industry are not adopting or replicating certain trends in the industry.
Den go get a Large format. Think that will be big enough for you.
SLR viewfinder are big. DSLR are small on non pro bodies. you want big finders, get Canon 5D or EOS 1DSmk2.
try the 5D 1st and den you come back to complain if the viewfinder is small for you. I'm sure there are some optician here that can help you. My 6yr old son also use the optical viewfinder on his P&S instead of the LCD view. Its a matter of getting used to it. and another point is that using the optical viewfinder means yr cam is resting on yr face, this gives you more stability and better control on the handshake.
