But how about their memory long after the tour? Days or months or years later? Would it be any different? Also, I think my family and friends would rather see the pictures than hearing me describing the them. :D
Until I can upload the image from my brain direct into a computer for printing/sharing, I think I'll keep taking pictures. :)
springsnow: You have to get a data plan yourself. So you have to spend $200, and pay more to your carrier for a data service that is just for this camera to work. Imo it's DOA. They should just do a wifi version for $100 and develop a smartphone app that the camera can pair with so people can use their existing data plans.
At least it could be an impulse purchase without further money draining subscription for another data plan. Right now, it's an overpriced low-end phone-class camera that requires a data plan to work.

"Now, the FAA is lifting its rules on in-flight electronics. Instead of having to turn off your phones, cameras and laptops entirely, you just have to make sure they are in airplane mode and safely tucked away during takeoff and landing."
Wait, do people really truly turn off (literally turning it off, not just in stand-by/sleep) their stuff before? Isn't that the point of airplane mode on phones in the first place?
Can the phone even play back the recorded 4k video?
"Impatient Android early adaptors can always manually check for operating system improvements in Settings->About->System Updates."
That doesn't really do anything. It still depends if your device is in the queue from Google to be pushed for the update. Since you would get a notification anyway when that happens, that "check for updates" button is just there for the OCD.
Babya: Also announced is the PowerShot S200-using a CCD sensor:http://cweb.canon.jp/camera/dcam/lineup/powershot/s200/spec.html
Not covered here yet as it's only a Japan-only release for now.
I saw that. It's very weird. Did Canon just have too many of the S95 sensors leftover or something? Plus the model numbering, S200, kinda makes it sounds like it's an upper end model compared to the S120, yet it has only Digic 5. Really weird. It's like a time paradox happening.
I have mixed feelings about these Canon. I like Canon cameras in general. Love my S100. I was hoping that the S120 would be priced more aggressively, although I guess Canon can still get away with charging $450 simply because Sony is charging $650 for the RX100.
No image stabilization even at that price? I mean considering its usage, IMO some sort of image stabilization is a must.I do like the concept. I've been thinking of wearing one of those Sony Cybershot TX cameras in a similar fashion. :D
Picasa Webalbums/Google+ is 15GB free now (still rolling out so some accounts may not see it yet), and unlimited if the picture is 2048x2048 pixels or less. It was 5GB before.
