such a sexy camera.
ennemkay: No sweep pano, no auto hdr. Meh. The future is algorithmic photography and canon is a dinosaur.
No you should be developing your film in a dark room or you'll become fat and dumb #eyeroll#. Your jurassic attitude has a date with a meteor.
I am really loving the fact that 24mm equivalent us the new standard zoom wide angle.

bluevellet: My biggest issue with the NX mini is not IQ, sensor size or specs, but simply that Samsung now has two mirrorless mounts. At best, it will be two mounts with so-so support. I just wish Samsung had better thought out its entry in the mirrorless market by either choosing APS-C or the mini route and stuck with it in the long run.
i'm not seeing how you have a basis for making that claim.
samsung is a huge company. their market cap dwarfs all other camera manufacturers.
peevee1: Anything there could not have been made with a smartphone?
smartphones and dedicated cameras are certainly converging, but they haven't converged yet. and you also didn't indicate to which smartphone you're referring. there's a pretty big range. though, even the best don't have a 1-inch sensor. you might as well point to the average 100 iso photo from a full-frame dslr uploaded at web resolution and ask the same thing.
the argument that 1-inch-sensor ilcs are for teens and soccer moms is getting old and is obviously false, since I still see a proportionately higher number of teens and soccer moms with dslrs and not ilcs. the same thing was said of m43, originally. milcs are more popular among the gadget geeks who love the endless miniaturization of machines and devices. yes, that is a different crowd from hardcore photographers, but it is a pretty well-informed (and overlapping) one, nonetheless. (not to mention it's not clear why it would be surprising for a consumer electronics company to change and adapt its products, in any case)
the lens/sensor combo + smartphone is certainly the future of photography. time to get onboard.
sony knows this is the future of cameras, so they might as well take the lead.
um, just buy an rx100.
war is bad. period. but if a country is at war, drones still save lives on the side using them.
ennemkay: the lx and xz cameras have the same sensor and much better lenses. and the rx100 has a much better sensor and lens and similar pocketability. if it's priced more than $299 why would anyone but canon devotees buy an s110?
um, that would be lx7 and xz2.

Abhijith Kannankavil: In the market ths camera has to compete with the sony RX100. But in canon's line up, this may not be the answer for it. The sony is too much for the s110 to handle.
Apart from that, it looks very good and has some decent specs
s100 is a generation ago. you can't compare its pricing to the just released rx100. the s110 will most likely retail for 499. at that price, the rx100 is a much, much better value even at 650.
this is incredibly boring. not much has changed since the s90.
Joachim Gerstl: I would not be surprised if the next S camera has a 1" sensor. This camera obviously was already finished when Sony announced the RX100.
the 1" sensor compacts will eventuially obsolete the 1/1.7 compacts now that there is no size difference, and since the prices are now similar (rx100 648 vs xz-1 599 vs lx7 549). the next lx camera will probably have a 1" given the success of the rx100, then canon and olympus will be forced to follow suit or to greatly lower their own price points.
Vladik: Can someone explain to me why is this camera 200 dollars more than Nex F3?
can the f3 accomodate an evf?
Adrian Harris: I still can't see the point of these cameras. Still far to big to fit in ones pocket. Shame it doesn't have a smaller sensor and hence small light lenses. Thank goodness for M4/3.
i have a nex-3 and e-pl2. the nex is smaller with a pancake than the e-pl2 with a pancake.
now that the rx100 exists, more compacts (and pureview-ish phones) will follow and nikon will feel increasingly stupid.
