That titanium frame should allow me to swing the camera by the shoulder strap whilst beating muggers about the head and shoulders and not have to worry about the frame damage that might otherwise occur with common magnesium frames.

ryansholl: There have been ugly cameras in the past, but this one really does take the cake. Others may say what they like about "absolute image quality," and it's not bad in that regard, but if the absolute in image quality came with a Fisher Price badge on it I'm pretty sure I'd not be the only one to shy away. Or "My First Sony" actually seems most fitting, looks a lot like my cassette deck @ 6 years old.

A camera with snob repellent styling? I like that.

snake_b: More gadget cams. How about worrying more about AF speed, shot to shot times and write speeds, which are pretty abysmal as it is?

They can't even get the hang of FW releases being made properly and fixing existing problems before they add more gadgets and gizmos to the cameras.

Snake whining about Samsung and firmware? Again?

Que predictable snake reply containing the word "fanboy".

What are the DPReview rules concerning under 18 members anyway?

snake_b: I can't wait to see the shortcomings of these cams, likely unsolved and covered up with gadget features.

How cute and adorable - the 15 year old Snake has an opinion and can post on the internet.

ybizzle: Yawn...Another generic looking camera without a soul.

Not sure what the sneering and posturing is about, as one can easily imagine you "guys" whipping a GF5 out of your fierce manbags and photographing yourselves at the bistro torquing your Artichoke Pesto Tilapia with your pinkies in the air.

Albino_BlacMan: I'm actually surprised it took companies so long to come out with this. I think smartphones with zoom lenses and compact camera sized sensors are going to be the future of P&S

Indeed - just seeing this as an inevitable evolutionary step. Android is getting integrated into an awful lot of stuff, even at the hobby hacker level (Arduino ADK, etc...).

Carmel: Sorry to spoil the party but this picture reflects a bad taste to say the least. Are we just technical photographers? Right, it is very original, the colors are natural and the details are great. But what about the message? I see here none. No love nor mercy, no dignity, no sentiment at all. Oh well, this is just a fish.

The bird clearly thinks the fish is in good taste!

Coming soon: A dSLR with WiFi and Fn buttons that can be configured to post snotty comments on camera sites! This camera will feature facial recognition blocking to prevent accidental sharing of their own facial image since the typical user probably doesn't have any friends to share anything with anyway!

Pfft - no wireless flash powder igniter? Why won't the back accidentally open up and expose the virtual film? Shutter buttons are just a profit fad - shutter release levers need to come back so I can tie a string to them so I don't have to buy the remote. Real photographers demand these things from camera corporations!
