On article Is Sony making a sensor/lens combo for smartphones? (110 comments in total)

While a nice improvement to the photo taking abilities of a smartphone, it will suffer the same problem Mirrorless System Cameras, Point-And-Shoot, and DSLRs currently have.

No one will bother taking these add-ons with them, all the time.

Smartphones enjoy being "always handy" and "always close at hand". That is a HUGE part of their popularity and the reason why they are used to take more & more photos.

I Use and Love the Android OS... on Smartphones, Tablets, and possibly PCs. But I wouldn't want it on a CAMERA.

The reason Android along with the iPhone & Windows 8 Smartphones have become so popular to take pictures with is that they are ALWAYS WITH PEOPLE and HANDY.

This NX device might appeal to Point & Shoot users, who are also Smartphone owners, who are looking for something slightly more capable for pictures & video but don't want to learn a new or complex menu and operating system.

While I'm sure this thing will sell; I really hope it doesn't signal things to come.

I think I'll be picking up this lens to go with my upcoming Olympus OM-D EM-5.

I think this lens and that camera will make a very nice travel camera setup.

I also don't think the Panasonic GH2 should be grouped with the Nikons and Pentax Q.

If anything, the Nikons should be grouped with the BEGINNERS' cameras.

It looks okay except...

- No IBIS (like the E-P3 has)
- No Tiltable LCD (like the NEX-5N & 7 have)
- No Built-In EVF (like the NEX-7 has)

What I'm hoping for is an E-P4 with an improved sensor over the E-P3, Tiltable LCD, and built-in EVF. Or even better, a Sony NEX-6N with all the features of the NEX-7 and the sensor of the NEX-5N.

On article Nikon 1 System First Impressions (248 comments in total)

Nikon limited the potential and performance of these cameras as to not errode their DSLR lines along with all those lenses.

For me, I find the NEX-7 far more interesting and will probably purchase one of those.

In reply to:

Nelson Tan: What's the sensor size?

Where to begin...

Smaller Sensor than the Sony NEX-7
No Hotshoe like the NEX-7
No Titlable LCD like the NEX-7
Much lower resolution than the NEX-7 (10.1Mp vs 24.3)

I am not at all impressed but will wait to see actual photo and video samples.

On article 3D Video Primer, Part 1 (32 comments in total)

I felt this FIRST PART served its purpose. It gave an initial overview of past and current 3D technology from a limited perspective.

I look forward to the next parts that will no doubt, provide additonal and more detailed information.
