Get a real camera and call it day.

Zeisschen: another "me-too"-product of Canon 1-2 years after Sony and Panasonic already introduced better attempts *yawn*

Late, boring, no EVF. What the hell are they thinking? Why not just make a nice mirrorless body and some more lenses for it?

I don't get this company.

@ThatCamFan You "concluse" eh? Ya...Anyways where did I say the Fuji had a 1" sensor? I was simply pointing out that the X-S1 is a low cost alternative that covers the same range as this Canon, albeit with a smaller sensor. Check your facts and learn to spell numb nuts.

ybizzle: Picked up a new Fuji X-S1 during Xmas for $300 that has pretty much the same range as this. Sure the sensor is a bit smaller, but it has a great evf and lens to match. Low light performance isn't on par with this or the other 1" sensors, but then again neither was the price and I mainly shoot in day time. If you find one for cheap, pick it up!

Half? Yea right haha. In fact the lens on the Canon will be larger to compensate for the larger sensor. Neither is gonna be pocketable so size is of no matter here.

Fuji x-S1 is the way to go, especially with how much cheaper it is than the 1" models from Sony and Panasonic. Over all a great all in one cam for a low price!

On Samsung NX mini First Impressions Review preview (559 comments in total)

The design is a Fuji XF1 rip off! Samsung did not even try to be original in any way. I have the XF1 in brown and it is the perfect compact camera for professionals such as myself who like image quality as well as style.

Nokia seems to be going backwards with the cameras in their phones. You had the best with the 808, then the 1020 with a smaller sensor and now this with even smaller sensor! What's going on?

ybizzle: This is truly an act of robbery. Samsung stole the Fuji XF-1 design and made into an interchangeable lens mount. What they couldn't steal was the feeling of holding a magnificent photographic tool with a manual zoom twist lens. The XF-1 along with higher end X cameras take us back to pure photography. Think Leica M6 Titanium if you have the tan XF-1. Truly a masterpiece in design with image quality to match!

Well the X-Q1 resembles the RX100 which resembles the Canon S120 which resembles the look of a generic camera. The XF-1 was unique to the compact camera market because it was all about style and also a new twist barrel lens design.

The design was not "taken" rather the 1930's rangefinders inspired the design of the X cameras. Samsung flat out took the XF-1 design and made it their own.

Peter Bendheim: I can't help it but I have a strong dislike for Samsung - they are the copycats of the tech world - copied the iPad, iPhone, and they have a camera that is remarkably similar to the NEX range. Now a knock off of the Panasonic GM1..
They might make ok household appliances, but I'm sure never going to trust my picture taking experiences to them.
Design thieves, that's for sure.

You mean knock off of the XF1 which Panasonic copied as well.

Yea...It only has the best camera ever put in a smartphone.

Haha yes I see what you meant. I do photography on the side so yes it is a part time job. I wasn't fully serious about my statement. Yes I love the cameras but I also have to spend within my means. :)

I love both shooting and admiring them. My X100s and XF1 have been delightful to use as well as being admired by people that see them. The X-T1 that I also have on order will no doubt be another gem in my Fuji collection!

On Olympus OM-D E-M10 First Impressions Review preview (619 comments in total)
In reply to:

ybizzle: Buy a new EM-5 body for $799 (B&H) or a used one for $500 and call it a day. Pricing for this doesn't make sense when the body is only $100 cheaper than the EM-5.

R Butler your argument makes no sense. The EM10 is being sold as a lower model to the EM5. Yes it has wifi and a couple minor upgrades but you're giving up weather sealing, 5 axis, accessory port, and cannot add a battery grip. If all that is worth $100 in savings to you, then go for it. At the end of the day your $799 is buying you a better camera, even if it has been on the market for 2 years!

vadimraskin: i guess I have to wait for a budget version of EM1

See my comment above. $500-$550 for gently used EM-5s. Look on Ebay or local/online shops. Best value you'll find!
