- no touchscreen- no Wifi- can't record 4K video- more expensive than the competition (Pentax K3, Sony A77 Mk II,Olympus E-M1)- all of those competitors feature stabilization built into the body, that works with every lens you attach- rumours of a hybrid viewfinder (like the Fuji X100 T) didn't make it to the production line- Canon should reinforce their innovation management
1/3.4-inch CMOS sensor
- extra tiny sensor.
Is the battery swapable/ easily user replacable ?
I still don't get why consumers accept non-replacable batteries.
They are more difficult to recycle, you can't swap batteries on the fly while shooting or using your smartphone. You can't simply buy a new battery once the first one starts to fade away in terms of charge.
Imagine a camera with a battery thats non-replacable: I assume hardly anybody would like to buy a sealed-battery camera.
"a camera whose primary innovations revolve around providing smooth autofocus in video" without 4k recording in 2013.
On the other hand-4k recording is going to be Canons innovation in the 80 D.
I'd rather use messenger pigeons insteadthan to buy a phone with a non-removable battery.
Lars Rehm: Guys, the 808 has a nice camera for a phone but as a phone it is obsolete. You can carry it as a camera but then you still need a to carry another phone which kind of defeats the whole point of a camera phone. The 1020 offers both, a very good camera and a modern phone operating system. If it was running Android I'd already have put my order in but even with Windows I am seriously contemplating a purchase...
The 808 is quite capable as a phone too.
I'd really like to see an image quality comparison with the 1020.
Has the new Mini 90 got autofocus ?
The Instax Wide 500 AF offered autofocus.Sadly, no instax did ever since.
I´d like to get rid of my Canon gear for good.
The AF-S NIKKOR 24-85mm f/3.5-4.5G ED VRhas a suggested retail price of $599.95.
I admit it's neither splashproof nor a macro lens.It´s a consumer zoom while the canonis a light weight pro lens with a moderate constant aperture.
But anyway, the canon EF 24-70mm f/4L IS USMhas a suggested retail price of $1499.
What´s going on ?
Canon prices are skyrocketing.Their ill-conceived marketing department is going to ruin the brand.
luqingyu: Why not large sensor?
Awesome, Nikon hired a Volvo designer to design the V 1.
Catalin Stavaru: I have a Panasonic LX3 and view this Canon S100 as a nice possible upgrade. I think it will beat the LX5 which is only marginally better than the LX3. It is smaller, has 30fps HD video and stereo microphone, big zoom that can be used while filming, plus mpeg4 movie format. It really doesn't lack anything as an advanced point-and-shoot.
... and at 120mm it's f/5.9 -
a bit too dark for my taste.
