Neodp: OK enthusiasts, and designers. So phones are eating up the pocket camera market? Make a tablet/camera(phone?), and with a MFT, relatively, big sensor, and a removable, flat-ish (cap like, and perhaps carries off the camera, sometimes), wide aperture, normal (focal) lens, and included. This will still have digital zoom, and when people figure out digital zoom sucks (or if they do) then they can buy any of the other MFT lenses, that they desire.

Yes, it would still be a bulge, but it could be carried in the other pocket, or purse. It could even have a completely flat, pin-hole cap, for carry.

Why not go bigger, with sensor size. It's not like maximum, ultra-telephoto on tiny sensors, does a good job. You can beat it, with a quality lens, bigger sensor, and (some) cropping, in real world conditions.

That's radical; but the point is, if you want to fight cell phone cameras, then use a big sensor.

thomas, u shot many but obviously not enough if u think the note 2 images are anywhere comparable

i think the majority of the skeptics here would have been silenced if Kelvin decides to take the Nokia 808 to the project . Reality is there is nothing spectacular about IPhone camera, hence the vast attempt to make it as anything more that what it is...a common mobile cam, is just the Emperor's new clothes.

KimGreenspan: Wow, some of these comments are just flat out ignorant. Why the need to be so judgmental? The focus should not be on the photo equipment. Watts of Love (a charity) approached Kevin and he agreed to take time away from his family, his business, his life, to fly halfway around the planet so that he could help to change the lives of other people. People who don't have any electricity, no light after dark, and after Kevin's visit they will have a source of light. They don't have any photographs at all, and after this they will have one. A physical memory to look back on years from now, show their children, grandchildren, etc, something they never had before. Try to just put that into perspective for a second.... I think it's a beautiful thing that Kevin and this organization are doing.

No one is saying that mobile is the same or better than dslr. The fact is that mobile photography has become a relevant medium, and many people find it fun and more accessible than a dslr. I think too many people are trying to turn this into something it's not.

You are a great person, Kevin! Safe travels, and I can't wait to see the photos from this amazing experience. XO

just curious, why cant Kelvin just bring along a compact., 4/3 or any dslr to shoot the 50 wedding? if charity is the aim, i guess those poor folks there deserves the best image quality possible

magneto shot: hmm set aperture to 1.8 , shoot picture of portrait standing 5 meters away...no blurring of background, no bokeh....set aperture to 2.7, shoot picture of portrait standing 5 meters away, no blurring of bg, no bokeh

whats the point of small sensor again?

but come on 1/2.3 ? i thought nikon 1 and Rx100 already sets a new milestone for compact...

pharding: The Olympus OM-D EM-5 also gets the prize for the stupidest camera name ever. What an awful name for an otherwise fine, innovative camera.

and would u suggest OMG HI-5 ?

talk about instant,

i have this idea, its makes use of a dead idea but l think it could be a runaway success.

1. resurrect the EDOF. but use a bigger sensor like 1" or 4/3
2. make sure the EDOF can capture anything from 15 cm onward

Vitruvius: What can you expect when Nokia had to fake the footage for the ad with a DSLR....

Makes you wonder how often they do this and don't get caught. Shouldn't this be false advertising, like Sketchers?

check out samsung galaxy camera ads if u call nokia's fake. u think this small sensor on samsung produces those group photos shown "live" with such dslr-like blurring of background?

Michael Ma: I'm reminded every day by this rover just how fortunate we are to live on a planet like Earth. Blue skies and oceans, green landscapes, and every hue, saturation, and luminosity available to us from nature. Imagine if we lived on Mars and we put on probe on Earth. Every cell of my being would have an endless yearning to be at such a beautiful world one day, even if it was just for a second. But we are already here. Wow, what a incredible gift!

u can thank God for that

vFunct: These cameras scream for Instagram/Facebook/Twitter integration.

Quick snapshots, easy to use, no massive post-processing needed. No one cares about sensor quality anymore since, they're all good enough now.

If they added the Android integration, they could very well compete against the Cell phone cameras with something like this.

All we ask for is a camera with a small sensor, some decent interchangeable lenses, and Instagram integration.

In the professional world, quickest to publish wins!

VFunct, ur referring to the Leica Monochrome?

Trollshavethebestcandy: Hassy will make a baby leopard skin version and charge 5k more. Buy it now! It's a steal!

nope, thats the job of Leica, a camera that will enable u to take better pictures just by owning one. inspiration counts!

Tom2572: Meh, I'll keep my NEX-5N with 2.3 million dot EVF attachment. At least I can take the EVF off when I need to go any smaller. The pocket is the great equalizer here. Once you can no longer stuff a camera in your pocket it doesn't matter how big it is. The NEX-5N with no viewfinder and the 16mm lens can slip into my pocket. The V2 is not going into anyone's pocket.

the v1/v2 image quality is no match for the NEX 5N. Sensor size sense.

magneto shot: my heart stopped at "4k camera" but then i realized...whats the point of a 4k video that have no shallow DOF. next...

my point is that, with a 4K camera that can do shallow dof, ur looking at a fraction of the price of cameras like Canon 1D-C, C300, BlackMagic, RED Epic/Scarlet.
With a 4K camera that is capable of shallow dof, u could replace still photography . Just extract whichever stills that captures the EXACT moment and process it.

one day, google apple and microsoft will merge. The renamed organization will be called "Umbrella". Since Bill Gates has a lot of exposure in bio stuffs, the management would decide that Bio tech is the way to go.
5 years later, we have our first zombie apocalypse.
