Excellent images. Some are really stunning.

photosen: Nice article. I'm sure this camera will find it's market, and good luck to them; beyond Leica's lenses I don't find their wares appealing.

Yes, sure.
Leica also should sell memory cards made with aluminum case for $500.

It's pathetic that they have to emphasize how the body is made... This is probably the only distinctive feature of this gadget.

Zvonimir Tosic: To understand the present, you must first understand the past. Why are Japanese cameras cheaper?

After the WWII, Germany was stripped of all its intellectual property, its industrial and technology patents made void. It was devastating to German companies who have totally lost momentum, and it created a huge bonanza for manufacturers elsewhere (particularly in the US and Japan).

Many of (then) smaller Japanese companies had actually been repair shops before the war, and were familiar with the construction of the cameras, and most had experience fabricating hard to get parts.
The economic boom following shortly after made Japanese into de-facto holders of 95% of world's photography related patents. Which Leica must pay for through the nose, of course, being such a small manufacturer from Germany. When buying any component, because of its small purchasing power, Leica pays many times *more* for same parts than some Japanese camera company.

Is this supposed to be an excuse for the price of this camera?

I expected really good sample images, but they are nothing different from its competitors, or could be worse.

The color and contrast are not attractive at all for me.

I have never understood those ultra heavy camera accessories. Camera manufactures spend zillions of hours to reduce 10 gram, and this thing is 100 g heavier than the lighter option.

The 'macro documentary" concept is not bad at all, but the result is far less than stellar. Also, as a conceptual art, they are too unsophisticated and belong to 'Naive Conceptual Art'. Sorry...

brdeveloper: To me the best performer in daylight was the Velvia one. I prefer preserving textures as nearly-random film noise isn't really annoying. This test shows two things: smartphone cameras are not that bad and film is still alive (for practicity you'd better using a D800 though).

I'm still waiting a better camera phone than Nokia 808. Lumia 1020 looks overprocessed and oversharpened.

True. Compare to film, all digital files look the same to me. Foliage looks downright ugly on digital, due to bayer's nature.

RKGoth: The difference is, as with Fuji's variation between Pivi and Instax Share, the application and infrastructure behind it.

They're cagey about the technology, but I'm betting some dollars ($170 of them) that it's Zink without the limitations of the GL10 or Pogo, and maybe, MAYBE with some effort made to improve the print quality. Where it differs is in integration with social networking.

Fuji could do this. Fuji could make it so Instax Share's app could broadcast a presence or watch an online service for other paired Instax Share apps, and print to a nearby printer a file 'sent' by a friend or family. You wouldn't necessarily want it automated, though there's some fun in the idea of trusted partners being able to surprise you with a print.

I agree. Fuji can do this, for sure, and probably they will.
