Many first tries are often stumbles.Make this a pan-smartphone device which can take any phone and you might have a winner.Drop it to $99 with zoom lense with constant 1.8 aperture too please. Thanks.
Potemkin_Photo: If SONY adopts Fuji's Kaizen philosophy, they are set to bust things wide open.
And like I said they need to do that to catch up to what their competition could do from day1. So you prefer Sony to release a dumbed down camera and release updates over few years?
Personally I prefer Sony's current way.===I never said that. i said that SONY could keep doing what it does now AND do kaizen to FURTHER improve its offerings dramatically.
What I meant was that Fuji keeps on releasing even improvements for very old cams. Sony tends to release & discard. If SONY were to keep making its cams even better, that'd make them even more of a force to be reckoned with.
Scottelly: This seems like Canon's answer to the Nikon D5500.
With only 1080p30 video and no IBIS, I'll stick with my Sony A65. The Nikon looks like a better deal to me, since it's $100 less and offers almost everything this Canon has, plus a bunch of functionality that Canons don't have. Frankly, I think I'd get the older Nikon D5300, which has Wi-Fi and does 1080p60 for $200 less. The only things these newer cameras seem to have that's new is the NFC and the touch screen. Of course this new Canon does have that status LCD on top, which is definitely a nice feature, which I do miss from time to time. It makes the camera like a more professional camera too.
This camera does have better/faster live-view focusing though, so it has two advantages over the Nikon D5500: better live-view focusing and the LCD display on top. The Nikons have 3.2" articulating displays though, while this camera has only a 3" display. Also, the Nikons can do 1080p60 (far less rolling shutter effect) instead of 1080p30.
Canon def needs to do a lot of work on AF and other features if it expects to continuing competing in the sub $1K DSLR starter market. It ain't 2005 anymore when the original digireb came out.
Potemkin_Photo: Stillborn at birth. Canon really needs to start class-leading with its offers instead of these warmovers. Better tracking like its peers, AF microadjust, IBIS, etc. Everybody already has a closet full of Rebels, so who would spend nearly a K for this?!
Pentax has always offered value for money. It's just a shame that AF isn't that great.

Anyway to download just lightroom 6 trial and not all the cloud nonsense?
creative cloud slowed my i7 quad core to the speed of circa 90s pentium box. any workarounds?
Yeah, but this won't last forever. Can't be too comfortable with those laurels.
That's what they get for not putting EVFs in their cams.
Just priced too high for what it is.
might as well bubble wrap and sell at walmart. not for the MSRP though, but more like $99 with 50 free prints.
Potemkin_Photo: Garbage. Why can't they just bring back the design of the GF1 and drop in a new sensor? This is ridic.
just bring out the gf8 with that design exactly and scrap this one.

Gesture: To be of value, the new model should cost less at introduction than the previous one. Development costs have already been amortized. Too many models chasing too few enthusiasts just because modern manfacturing makes it so easy to issue different models.
Still overblown pricing. They should be real and intro it at $199. Nuff said.
Worth $99 at best. Disappointing that Fuji is now playing the same game. I guess they've tapped out in terms of innovations.
Francis Carver: Wow, why is Canon still making these horrid, horrid little cameras? And just what is "new" in these ones now, I wonder? Seems to me to be the same old same old.
Canon, the new Kodak.
Cameron R Hood: What a shame; they make GREAT stuff. Been a big fan since the film days.
Maybe someone can pick up their product line and equipment and continuing making stuff.
