thx1138: Wow 200kp EVF, same as my 11 year old Fuji S7000. Good work Pentax. Same for the massive 240 shot battery. I mean what's using the juice with so few pixels on the EVF and even LCD is trailing edge res.

Knock 600mm off the FL and put more money on the important features Pentax.

They borrowed the EVF from Canon SX50, Panasonic FZ70, Sony HX400, and Nikon P50..all the same resolution!

evogt500: I am guessing this camera is made in the same cheap chinese factory as all the other small sensored super zooms from Kodak, Fujifilm, Afga, and Samsung.

Oh, and don't forget Panasonic, Nikon, Canon, etc.!

phazelag: I got it excited for a second but the EVF and screen tell me it's not worth worrying about.

Yup, some low rez EVF as the Canon SX50, Nikon P510/520/530, Sony 300/400, and Panasonic FZ70.

George Veltchev: Surprisingly similar in every way to the Kodak Pixpro AZ522 released last year ... the same pea bean like size sensor, the same optical zoom, features and shape ... extraordinary way to bring some life into a failed project ... Bravo Ricoh ... Bravo Pentax !

Humm, share some of the same features and components? For shame...wait, you mean just like Nikon, Olympus, others using Sony sensors?? The horror!

W5JCK: Super yawn....Another camera with a small sensor and little to offer. Putting a long zoom on a lackluster camera doesn't make it good or make it worthy of being on this site. This kind of cheap camera is going to be bought by people who don't read sites like this, or they would know better. I'm not sure why DPReview still brings us information on these little sensor cameras or for that matter smartphone cameras. Maybe their newest members have been dumbed down to that level. This used to be a site for enthusiasts and professionals, not so much now...

Such opinionated ignorance. Try some Midol for those cramps..

Wye Photography: A lot of "yawn" and negative comments and perhaps rightly so. I suppose this makes an ideal camera for a terrorist or pervert unless you happen to be a terrorist pervert then you'll be rubbing yourself all over with glee, or baby oil or disgusting body fluids. On that thought I won't be buying this camera. :-)

You have issues dude.

I really don't have to say anything more...

You mean with it's 500mm, expensive lens and TC converter to get to 1000mm? The IQ of this XG-1 will serve many very well.

craig707: Okay, this camera, not too cool. Although it does pass my first acid test for point-and-shoot cameras. It has an electronic viewfinder. But it flunks the test with only 230,000 dots. My seven year old Kodak P 880 has 230,000 dots. Most everything else on this camera is mediocre. Not even and 1/2 inch sensor. It's a rather poor attempt for Pentax getting into the bridge camera market.

Ummm, you mean the same 230,00 dot count as the Canon SX50, Nikon P510/520/530, and the Panasonic FZ70?? Yup, they are all low rez.

panpen: Whenever I hear Kodak, I think Walmart.
Super cheap, crappy stuff for $5 per hour McDonalds workers.
Match Kodak with a Blackberry phone and the whole neighborhood will laugh at you.

Really? Where does McDonalds pay someone $5. hour? You are obviously not aware that WalMart also sells Canon, Nikon, etc. too.

I just was in BB and played with this phone..excellent images and to me, quite a bit better than iphone 4/5. The detail (including macro) was amazing.

Yawn. Ok, a few new colors, another LCD light on the flash, still no 4.5-5" screen. Is it any wonder that Android continues to pull ahead. Former iphone 4 user here who got tired of squinting at a 3.5" screen and then that annoying itunes..pass. Rocking on a SIII that gives me better photos, bigger screen, and no itunes!
So the iphone has been mentioned too frequently that it will cause the demise of a good p&s cam? Nope. Not even close.

Looking forward to seeing the IQ on this phone. I'm finding myself more and more in situations where I can't take my p&s camera.

Very nicely done! I like them all.

I'm definitely in on this. Work to do and fingers crossed. Go Intel..a US company that employs many thousands with excellent pay/benefits.

At $349., it's priced a bit high, especially compared to the competition: Canon SX230HS and the Nikon S9100 at the $200. mark. Granted the Panny has GPS (does not interest me), but it has a lower resolution LCD at 460k vs Nikon at 920k, which by the way, really makes a difference in bright sun. Looks to be a very nice camera, but nothing out of the ordinary.
