If you study the history of design, one thing will become abundantly clear: design trends tend to make a circle. Apple gets it’s design inspiration from 1960′s brAun, and camera manufacturers get their inspiration from the analog cameras. One of the first digital cameras with a retro look is the Panasonic LC1, but I believe that the market was not ripe enough for it, it was bad timing. Olympus struck the heart with the original Pen EP-1 and the retro craze has been on since then. Rangefinder lookalikes are back, with no small thanks to the Fuji X100, with some adopters claiming “They couldn’t resist!”.
