Fascinating! Maybe in a few years, interchangeable lensor cameras, like the Ricoh GXR, will become the new norm.

I'm waiting for the Vertu Pleistocene Touch, made from certified saber-toothed tiger ivory.

Bing Chow: I guess the US has fully recovered from the recession.

The people who would be in the market for this phone were never affected much by the recession, and recovered a while ago as soon as the stock market rebounded. The rest of the US is a different story.

This is a bit confusing. As others have noted, there's subject motion between the individual shots of each scene. The description says 30,000 photographs were taken for this video. Even if each scene is composed of 50 photographs, that would still be 600 scenes, which is far more than appear in this video. So were the cameras shooting bursts at each scene?

As part of the post work done here, it says the photographs had to be slowed down and stabilized. Umm... what? How do you slow down a photograph, or stabilize one that's already been taken? Were these phones shooting images or video? There's an audio component to each scene, so perhaps they were actually shooting short video clips?

skytripper: For starters, this camera strap is ugly as sin!

It's uglier than sin. Sometimes, sin can look pretty good!

The middle class is shrinking, and most growth is either at the high end or the low end. Just today in the New York Times there's an article about how companies that cater to high-end consumers are booming:

Hassy is probably trying to ride the wave of this demographic shift.

6 + 1 + 2 = 10?

Yes km25, everybody else misread it, but you got it right because you're awesome like that ;)

Or, perhaps it used to be wrong and DPReview edited it. Which is what I hoped for in initially posting. Did that not occur to you? I guess you're not so awesome after all :/
