again, look at what is in focus....the front of the pillow. Had the lens been stopped down, more would be in focus. Its shallow DOF.

I think you need to consider what is and isn't in focus. The shallow DOF is evident here, just look at the green leaves on the plants. This is impressive.

superstar905: Conclusion - Cons
■Poor noise reduction
■JPEG rendering of yellows a bit washed out
■Electronic shutter can produce banding under artificial light
■Video resolution tops out at 1080 30p
■Default dynamic range settings produce slight highlight clipping
■Slow 1/50 flash sync speed

Don't know about you, but the cons I highlighted above should have carried enough weight to knock the award to silver. I removed the battery con but thats another one, you need 2 - 3 batteries to run this thing for an event at best.

I don't think anyone is saying its a bad camera, just relative to its peers, does it deserve Gold with the cons listed? Handcuffed video quality, no IBIS, banding, unusable slow flash synch speed. This camera is silver at best, but platinum for its design as a breakthrough.

Agree regarding what is "crippling", however for a Gold award, I would think that the banding, video resolution, and flash syn speed to be enough to not warrant a Gold rating. Of course, my method is not scientific.

Look, to those saying they'd simply buy the RX100, thats completely missing the point. You are getting RX100 quality on a device that can do almost everything, vs the RX100 that can only make calls.

While it remains to be seen if smartphone users who are snap happy would adopt such a large add on, clearly Sony is leading the way with innovation and that is something to be commended.

Fabiano Barbosa Vilela: I guess an important TZ was left out of the group: Olympus SZ-30MR. I would really like to see it compared to the group due to the good impressions owners talk about in the forum. The specs are amazing and the ability to take pictures while doing movies is unique. So why was it left out?

No, it is not smaller, but still a compact travel zoom that should have been in this review since its better than half the cameras

Frank B: I really wish DPR had included the FujiF550EXR. I will not buy a travel camera unless it includes RAW. I would truly like to know if the RAW files from the Fuji offer more potential image quality than the JPEG files of these other travel zooms. I have a Nikon P7000 which has excellent JPGs, but the final results from the RAW files are to me sufficiently improved so that I only use RAW.

It would have failed miserably.

eddie_cam: Whatever happened to the Olympus SZ-30MR? Why hasn't it be included?

No kidding...this cam had potential to best all these models.
