    Pixii is designed for the new generation of photographers. Everyone has a smartphone now. The smartphone has become, by and large, the number 1 camera in the world. At the same time, the traditional camera market has collapsed. Was it killed by the smartphone? No, photographers just aren’t interested in old cameras anymore. This is the end of the line for the digital camera designed in the 80s: a sensor, a CPU and a screen. All of these components were necessary back then. Because computers were rare and hard to use.

    Except it's 2018 now. Who seriously needs a fixed function computer and a bad LCD at the back of a camera? Pixii is the fusion of 2 essential elements: the physical camera body and the software, virtualized into an app, that dynamically develops the picture on a screen. - Pixii

  • Oh yeah. Nothing about the specs is even remotely exciting. Unless it's dirt cheap, I see no reason that anybody should buy that camera over something like an A6300/6500 - existing, shipping cameras which are small, light, and excellent.

    All this stuff sound not so good. Nice renders, lot of promises.

    Usually all this ends up with lot of consumers without both money and cameras.

  • Computers were rare in the 80's? Huh. Could have fooled me.

    Except it's 2018 now. Who seriously needs a fixed function computer and a bad LCD at the back of a camera?

    Translation: We don't have these things so that we say they are useless or bad.
