Andrew ATM216: I also agree with most of the other posts: samsung is going backwards by dropping the micro sd card expansion slot...so i guess its time to look at the sony experia z5....which will come out in the near future....i have the note 3 now and was hoping to upgrade....but although i like the camera specs of the note 5, dropping the memory expansion slot, i will be saying, "good bye samsung"....
They dropped it to increase profits. Go read about it. The card was only for mp3 and pics anyways.
...what will sony shift it's focus to next year? They have ADD.
ProfHankD: I applaud Canon for doing something new, and this is a good answer for how to innovate when your fab is outdated. Unfortunately, $30K for 60p 1080 is really not cutting it. The resolution is not where you want it for cinematic releases, and the impressively high ISO is only being half utilized when they don't have any framerates above 60/s (probably limited by Canon's sensor chip architecture).
Eleson: What is the intended usage and audience for this camera?
Videos, dude. Security surveillance.
jackpro: Amoled nuff said awesome when do we get a note tablet with amoled!
I have a Samsung tablet with and without amoled screen and cannot see any difference.
So these are tab s replacements. Samsung would be well advised to streamline their tablet lines. Too many names all over the place. It confuses buyers.
No wonder Apple makes all the profit. They make 2 phones and 2 tablets. Much r&d and marketing wasted at Samsung.
LSE: the web is the future. cross platform. always up to date. and cloud computing backed.
Dude, apps are mobile and internet based too!
So, Sony has created nose-detection focus mode. Brilliant!
kodakrome: Okay, so you take a photo with this camera, then take the same shot with a 70D, then take the 2 pics and print them at 13 x 19. Will you be able to tell which is which? Probably not.
Your point. Koda? Didn't think you had one.
IvanM: I would argue high DR is almost essential for amateurs or beginners...people that dont want/have the skill to expose properly. But having said that those types of photographers are probably not going to have access to post production tools like LR etc, so does it really matter, like you rightly asked? The flipside is that all Canons come with the 'free' DPP software, and if one has the patience to try it out there are some very good options in there to 'fix' poorly exposed images....but then one would have to shoot RAW, and how many beginners actually do that, or need to do that....thats maybe why Canon entry level cameras sell so well. My cousin just bought a 760D, his first 'serious' camera and his purchase was made because he perceived the Canon 760 to be 'easy to use', he trusted and knew the brand and he thought the Nikon would be too complicated...no mention of DR or noisy sensors....
Not true. The beginners are the ones with kit lenses, shoot in jpg, and usually at most only crop their photos. Only a small percentage of those beginners have or spend the time to further develop their jpgs. Those that post on dpr don't represent a cross section of beginners.
RedFox88: Author: you need to reexamine your thought process if you really think a barely noticeable rock is very important to the image. I did not notice it until I read your mention of it being "important".
The foreground is dead fish not a dark, little, and barely noticeable rock!
I'm reading the article. Those using a computer " screen" these days for Web are few and far between. This rock isn't noticeable unless someone points it out if you view is hugely enlarged and are looking for little things. It has no contributions to the "impact" element if this pic.

If Leica made this they'd market it as a 24mm and a 35mm prime both f/2 in one lens. And they'd charge $4500 for it!
Zoron: 50-85 F2.0 in 2016 ?
Maybe 52-63 mm zoom lol!
Zeisschen: This looks exactly like the camera that I've never wanted...
You look like the friend I've never wanted!
Joe Ogiba: The new Samsung NX500 with much larger APS-C sensor has 4K UHD , 28mp and with 16-50mm power zoom OIS lens is $599. It has the same sensor as the NX1 that I just got that works great with my old lenses.http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/56004675
75mm vs. 600mm what are you smoking?
mpgxsvcd: It isn’t a bad camera. However, it is just simply a little late. There were too many great options in this category last year. Everyone bought a camera back then.
I am sure they will sell plenty of these cameras. However, it definitely would have sold better if it was announced last June instead of this June and I don’t see any reason they couldn’t have made this camera before now.
There is simply too much competition now. Which is a good thing for consumers but not so great for manufacturers that are selling less and less cameras every year.
Riiiiiiight. Everyone in the world already has this type of camera and will never buy another again. LOL. Troll.
Gesture: More like 73. Please review your cons. $850 and I can't select the AF point? Is that so?
Since when is $850 expensive? Is a common price $400 for newly launched dslrs?!
Surprised no one pointed out the lack of dynamic range in this.
