ryansholl: I have no intentions of every buying a 4k TV, if I'm given the choice, anyway. I feel like we've definitely reached the point of overkill.

I am excited to see what this puts out at 1080p. A compact low light machine that can finally lay down some incredible 1080p video would be more than welcome.

I have no intentions of ever buying a 386pc. A 286 with a 10MB hard drive is all I will ever need. Anything above that is overkill and a waste of money.

I had to mute the video because that music was so irritating. On the plus side, that quad copter shadow was really cute.

If I entered this contest I would have won. I took a photo of Godzilla tearing down the Eiffel Tower.

They should have named it "R2" or "R1 mark 2".

maxnimo: From the sample pics I saw, that nikon zoom lens belongs in a toy store. To use such a lens in a test simply destroys the credibility of this site.

I see your reasoning, but it's still beyond my comprehension how any hobby photographer would buy a relatively high-quality camera such as this and use it with such an awful lens.

That rear grip makes it stable to hold in hand, otherwise it slips out of your grasp.

I've never seen a zoom lens so sharp edge to edge. Simply astonishing.

maxnimo: "The original image data is sent on via the smartphone's 3G/4G "

And after one shot there goes your $40 monthly data allowance. And do you really expect to find wi-fi on some hike in the mountains?

Well, if the images can be offloaded to a tablet then this camera has potential to be a very nice gadget, especially if the resolution can be improved.
But using slow and expensive 3G/4G for this would be impractical, at least in USA where the phone monopolies charge you ridiculous prices if you touch their networks.

How the heck can anyone vote properly on this unless they have used and compared every single camera on the list?

On Sony QX100 preview (155 comments in total)

I bet it would look really cool to attach 2 or 3 of these lenses to a 10" tablet. It would impress a lot of people, don't you think?

On Another Hasselblad Rebadge or Photoshopped Hoax? news story (187 comments in total)

Looks like CGI..... a computer generated model. The entire camera could easily be a CG model. Heck, I could make a better rendering myself.

Wide-angle-lens panoramas are mostly useless unless you're into goofy art. Image distortions are beyond ridiculous. Plain silly.

ENicolas: Hey - it's the same price as Paintshop Pro with only half the features!

Paintshop Pro 9 was the most intuitive, easiest, most customizable image editor ever. Simply wonderful to use. By version 11 the new owners screwed everything up. Not sure what it's morphed into now, but I doubt it's anything like it used to be.

There's no monthly subscription fee? LOL! That's like saying "My new restaurant offers fresh pizza and great pies, and best of all, my waiters won't beat you up!"

I absolutely love the idea of "very short-range means of exchanging data". Excellent! No more damn cables to mess with and misplace.

Illegal to climb that pyramid? If I couldn't climb it there'd be no reason for me to even go there. And just how are my soft boots going to damage that granite? And what's that nonsense about injuries? Just post a sign "CLIMBING THIS PYRAMID IS EXTREMELY DANGEROUS - CLIMB AT YOUR OWN RISK". Simple. And if stupid people die on it... so what! Not like we have a shortage of stupids.
