edu T: To foldio's creator: I can see you're using a 9V battery for the LEDs; this is a bit of a nuisance inasmuch you need to carry a thick battery besides and apart from the folded panels. (That is, if you don't forget the battery at home.)So, hmm... what if you try to mount 3 lithium coin batteries side by side instead?(e.g. CR2032: 3V, 240 mAh, 20mm D x 3.2mm H, 3 grams, about 50¢ ea. for 500 pc.)
Better to use A A rechargeable battery
Need bigger size too. And also is the lamp using rechargeable A A battery? Also include the other color background as bonus
binauralbeats: The only thing that could make this camera any better is a bigger canon logo. I'm surprised canon went straight from the EOS-M to the EOS-M2 in one generation. So much innovation for one product generation.
Maybe because canon think eos m is failed. And they think this small improvement can improve the eos m sales. IMHO canon need more improvement to make eos m better sales number
IVAN is picturing: Ok when I read the M2 announcement, I just could not believe it is true. And release only in Japan and China?? Looking at the censor/exterior, I can't help but think is it because canon just have too much eos m1 remains to clear? We all know eos m is reducing it is price dramatically. Clearly they will not be profitable as forecast and consumers aren't buying as they wish. So what to do with the remaining materials? Just adding in new wifi and other features to remaining eos m1 materials and there you go: eos m2 with optimized profit again!
Maybe they will release the dual pixel edition for international market. Or other improvement
Little bit too late but still OK. I hope Google can add something to the current raw standard which can help making better picture/ easier processing and other good things
Marty4650: Why on earth would anyone buy one of these for $800, when the very similar Pentax MX1 is currently selling for under $300? There are essentially the same camera with a few very minor differences.
Will people really spend $500 more to get a 3.5" LCD screen rather than a 3.0" screen?
I think the price is wrong. I hope casio Revise it before it too late. If casio want this to be success, sell it $499
phazelag: An XZ-2 with casio badge? Whats the point?
We need to compare it better. Not all things same. Please check
Jimmy jang Boo: This blows the XZ-1 out of the water... The Casio has a magnesium alloy body vs XZ-1 metal body, a back lit illuminated CMOS sensor vs a CCD, a superior articulating screen, 1/4000 max shutter speed vs 1/2000, 455 shots on the battery vs 320, an independent battery charger vs in camera charging, higher resolution video with slow motion settings, built in electronic level, 5 axis image stabilization... yeah, I think I'm gonna sell my XZ-1 now while I can.
Please wait for xz3. I hope they creating good camera with affordable price. This casino are good on spec, but the price are too expensive. I hope Olympus creating xz3 start from 24mm and use fast lens like this
Treeshade: Wait, no mention of the beauty retouch functions? Many Casio self-portrait models are selling at double list price (in East Asia, of course), simply because of the make-up filter.
I know, you photographers never care about these functions...
Interesting features for PS cameras. But the price different is not good enough. We can buy Samsung Galaxy for this purpose
Murat Sahan: People are making fun of Casios attempt, but it looks like a decent camera even if its just different version of the ZX-2. I personally love my Oly ZX-1 and would have bought the ZX-2 if it wasnt for its bigger size.
I love the pictures from the ZX-1 and waiting for Olympus (or another manufacturer) to use the same lens in a body that isnt bigger than the ZX-1 but with slightly better sensor and a few more direct controls.
Some pics taken with my ZX-1:
I hope olympus creating new Olympus XZ3 based on this cameras. But Start from 24mmMore than 4x ZoomSmaller BodyBut keep the good spec such as Fast Lens and also others
On spec it look good. Only some cons: zoom only 4x, and price $797 is too expensive. And we did not know the image quality yet.
Can this camera using Android apps? Example the picture effect to create cartoon, which is popular.
And also consider releasing smaller cameras
what is the meaning of canon will start with white world ?1. Canon will release pro cameras in White color ? or 2. Canon use new sensor which can make low light/ dark become white/ good image ?what else ?
Hello sony, please create sensor which work good on low light. with good Dynamic Range. Low noise. With this kind of sensor you can create many good cameras, and also did not need expensive lens, but still giving good images. and when you want better, give premium lens for better images
Gopro Killer ? You must create better cameras. The title is same as last year title. and what happened ? GoPro still win.
I hope sony update the firmware ans solve some of the issue, and can get higher point.some of them can be improved by firmware update.But I don't know if sony willing to do it or not.
For next year, I suggest sony to start the lens from 24mm. and also trying to have fast lens (on tele)
Panasonic, please create RX 100 competitor. This is not small enough. if Sony can make small things, why not panasonic ? use big sensor, small body, start from 24mm and use fast lens. and many people will buy it
I wish the lens is better. it drop very fast to 3.6 in 35mm.
Any chance that it will be rx 100 competitor?I hope it has large sensor and fast lens
limlh: This XQ1 may well turn out to be a pocket Hercules. EXR processor II, hybrid PDAF and CAF, LMO, high definition lcd, all features that are found in the XE2.
Lets wait for the real review. I hope the image quality is good, especially on low light.If the image quality is not good, many people will not buy this
