'Allo, 'Allo... as Herr Flick would say:How can someone talk so fast for so long and still make it, 'Very interesting.'

A nice balanced reveiw of the MFT name and system as a whole.

Re: Why Micro four thirds name???

I remember when the Four Thirds system was originally launched the advertising mentioned that the aspect ratio was the same as traditional (non-widescreen) 4:3 TV, so images could be viewed full size on a TV screen without cropping. Which was great .. until TVs went 16:9! It also mentioned the historical TV camera tube connection.

Getting to be a record for words a minute...

I tell my grandson that we only have so many words, and if he uses them up now, he won't be able to talk later on in life. But he knows grandad is missing something above.....
