Haim Hadar: How come the Lytro didn't find its way to this list?
Nice idea and very enjoyable read anyway. Thanks.

You're right - I'd completely forgotten about Lytro! Even though it didn't become a large commercial success, it still is extremely innovative!

Boky: And Canon? What happened to Canon?

Oh well, I suppose they came up with, and then perfected, the process of milking their customers to the n-th. degree by selling vastly overpriced gear that is either intentionally crippled in firmware, or completely incapable of achieving a consistent and reliable focus.

Well, they DID pioneer entry level access to digital SLRs.

And their compacts have been top choise for many years, and mostly deservedly so. Especially their old A-series, the entire S-series (with only a few exceptions) and G-series.

I think it's funny that Sony has several cameras represented, but none of them are SLT-series, which in principle has been the greatest new thing in system cameras for many years (even though it wasn't their invention in principle, as it is a revival of certain film camera tech).

On Sony announces DSC-WX30 CMOS-based compact camera news story (8 comments in total)

Everything sounds promising except for a few aspects;
- The CMOS architecture is in itself inferior to the CCD. The reason as to why CMOS are used so widely in dSLRs, is lower power consumption, faster (much faster) readout and the possibility to place anti-blooming gates and dischargers and other stuff more directly on the CMOS pixel rows, than the CCD allows.
- 16,2 MPixels. On a ... what, let's guess 1/2.4" sensor at the largest. Our current compact camera leader in terms of image clarity and low noise, is the Canon S9x and G11/G12 with their 1/1.7" CCD which only performs 10 MPixels. So a smaller sensor and higher resolution WILL result in more noise, backlit sensor or not. I clearly remember how the backlit principle should've revolutionized Sony dSLR noise performance, and yet today, Sony dSLRs are STILL the ones delivering the most noise compared to Canon and Nikon competitors.

I use Sony dSLRs myself, but that doesn't mean I always agree with their choises in terms of tech.
