New Paradigm for camera 'ownership'

Instead of encouraging camera users / fondlers to purchase outright, manufacturers such as Olympus could offer a PCP, use and upgrade every 3 years. Brilliant if I say so myself.

Dragon's Den or what, Peter Jones would love it.

Would it be like the Nissan Leaf where you get an E-M5 for daily use, and then they lend you a D850 for special projects?

That would be nice....


for scanning negs

I guess you'd have to decide on an annual mileage, or rather clicks. With a government subsidy for green electric clicks.

You needn't wait for the manufacturers to do it Steve - set up a business to do it yourself!

You can have 40% of my business for 100k, we'll be millionaires in no time at all. Well, I'll be 100k in front of you, thanks, but what's 100k amongst business associates!

Edit Actually you can 100% of my business for 100k, whilst I do a runner

Nice camera, but at the end of the day you only have a 35 mm transparency.

I much prefer medium format.

What about prints, Nigel? Remember all those Enprints under the stairs or in the loft?

Of course, the business could be based on loaning 10x8 plate cameras complete with selfie sticks attached like in that other thread...... Linhof used to do some pretty nice ones.....

Ummm... I have one of those. There's a lot to like about it, but I like my Olympus equipment (size, ergonomics, lenses and so on) too much to to consider switching.
