It's a little thing, but I'm always struck by how a company can roll out an interface with poor English grammar. It's not as bad as it used to be, but we still get a menu item called "Application." It's a small thing, but it takes away from the attention to detail paid to the other parts of the camera.

Rambazamba: WOW, this is the future! So great to beeing able to upload photos to your iphone and social media sites. I hope this feature will come in more advanced cameras soon. The Z1000EXR doesn`t seem to be so much more better than the camera in iphone 4S.

"The Z1000EXR doesn`t seem to be so much more better than the camera in iphone 4S." I disagree. Major advantages of this camera are:
- Sensor size
- Optics, including the above mentioned optical zoom
- Twice the resolution. Don't think of it as more pixels to be thrown away upon upload, think of it as more pixels to zoom and crop in after capture.
- EXR sensor features that improve dynamic range performance
- Macro mode for much closer shooting distance.

To me, the big TBD is how usable the wireless connection to smartphones is. Eye-fi solutions are usable, but clumsy. We'll see how Fuji does on "frictionless" sharing to social networks....
