arhmatic: With camera phones getting so much better, there is little reason to get a point and shot. The latest camera phones from Sony Xperia are waterproofed. Not as good as this nikon, but it's work in progress I suspect. More and better will come.

Point and shot manage to stay afloat with this niche markets, but this markets are getting smaller and smaller. The only way to stay in business is getting much better with image quality. Lx7 is a benchmark IMO.

I really want to see a camera that can replace my P&S or even my DSLR for casual shooting. For outside, bright light they get the job done but once we go indoors, it is Russian Roulette.

Garsrh...I like Pentax gear but this looks like a smurf toilet.

HubertChen: Here is a very good Article about facts on Adobe Photoshop Cloud which is missing entirely in the discussions here: http://www.luminous-landscape.com/essays/adobe_cc.shtml. And for those who just want to rant there is a good cartoon and a link on a very dark satire on youtube.

I love that cartoon - thanks for sharing.
I wonder what would happen if you were working on something controversial or what if you ran into legal issues related to copyright/model release issues. Could big brother turn off the spigot until their legal sensibilities are satiated?

Any time you try and hand-cuff users like this, you create a fertile garden for our hacker brethren. My guess is you will also see more users thinking 'hey, that Aperture program really gets most of what I need done'.

Bad move Adobe.

In reply to:

leecamera: To be honest this is a fantastic effort on a budget of zip.

It's interesting that Marc uses the GoPro as he'd be shooting video with each rather than a series of stills - which opens possibilities to editing motion within the Matrix effect.

I think the comments about motion artifacts may be confused with the "scratch" editing within the action. We've got some interesting forwards and backwards motion of the subject whilst the tracking motion continues in the same direction. This is the first time I've seen this and kudos to Marc for coming up with a variation on a well known effect.

And to the critics of the execution... please send us your examples - we'd love to see how much better your versions are...

I agree. Zero budget it aint but it is indeed seriously cool.

Cy Cheze: Wonderful gear to have for a $10k job for those clients with $100k to spend for the finest.

Meanwhile, a must-have for the $500 / wedding photogs: a lens that optically reduces the subjects' girth, clothing size, dental or dermatological problems, and bad hair. Why can't that old goat (the guy footing the bill?) smile? Well, he probably thinks $500 is way to much.

Sometimes an over-bright flash, complete defocus, and general blow-out is the best "fix."

LOL. Awesome.

Jordan Norris: I don't get it, the sky in the first photos looks equally "exciting". Some simple lightroom/darkroom work on the first photo would do the trick. Doesn't seem like photography to me, seems more like arts and crafts.

When I look at the two, the first image with a bit more brightness in the sky gives me the impression they have weathered a storm. The second image suggest to me that things are about to get nasty. (My 2c.)

LarryK: Rambus is not so much a technology company, but rather a patent lawsuit mill.

Best to walk away from anything they develop, it's likely just something their attorneys will use to sue people.

Lawyers and judges are spectacularly ignorant when it comes to technology and it gets worse when parades of engineers are brought into court rooms to try and demonstrate proof of orignal ownership and design.

I'm with larryK, these guys had an ethical bypass at birth.

Thank goodness. Even people that have never used a camera were apologizing for this thing.

donjose: Idiot. The rifle is not even a sniper rifle. It is a shotgun. Snipers don't use shotguns. The photographer doesn't even know what he is talking about. I don't believe his story about research never meant to be made public. He tried to fake a scene and got caught.

I was looking at the weapon and the belt on his shoulder and thinking the same thing...snipers using a shotgun?

Would anyone hesitate to use a BlackRapid strap with a camera like this? I seem to recall somewhere people saying that Nikon's didn't like to be carried by the bottom screw/nut as BR does.

They need to put a poison sticker on this camera. Poor picture quality especially indoors so it is able to compete with iphone/galaxy. WiFi so you can sit in front of your computer and download images wirelessly in 4 times the time you could if you removed a card. Gotta stop there. Too painful.

I would love to have that RX100 for a week, just to see if I could get used to no viewfinder. That is really my only complaint with that unit.

Does anyone really shoot 12 mp and then wifi or piggyback on their cell phones to move these images around? I guess I am just too old to get the usefulness of this. And yes, even a cheesy optical view finder would put this camera on my radar.

In reply to:

dpreviewprov: I am not denying the problem.

However, if you shoot with a DSLR, prepare to clean your own sensor at some point.

It is easy enough. Watch here:

I expect to have to clean my sensor from time to time but I really wish Nikon sold this with a wet-clean system. Compared to the sot of the camera, it is not a lot of money but a part of me resents having to give the D600 a sponge bath once a week.

In reply to:

ET2: DPR puts RX100 in a different class. They claim the scores are not comparable between different classes, but yet they mention RX100 everywhere in this review. Isn't that hilarious?

RX100 should have been in the same class as S110. These cameras are competing for the same market. Same buyers.

Putting RX100 in the same class as larger -- not pocketable -- big sensor p&s (such as G1X) or cameras with a fix lens primes like Fuji X100 was really really dumb.

Dude, I think DPR was bang on mentioning the RX100 camera as they did. Sensor size matters and for most point & shoot users, it becomes a question of price versus performance. DPR made that abundantly clear in this review. Not hilarious.
