They just need to mount this on a hovering drone-bot with some sort of IR mapping sensors.. like what they had in Prometheus .. scary.

biggercountry: Cons I don't think are really worth mentioning as cons:

• File export to computer can be cumbersome
- Not really the intended purpose of this camera. But I personally don't find automatic uploads to iCloud via Photo Stream and back to iPhoto on my computer cumbersome. Quite the opposite.

• No dedicated shutter button
- The volume up button, while not "dedicated" in the strictest sense of the word, may as well be, since in the camera app it will do nothing else. Some apps don't support this functionality, but I do all my photo taking from the camera app and post process later in other apps.

• Low-resolution front camera
- Again, the intended purpose of this camera doesn't require significant resolution.

• No 4K video
- This is not currently deal breaker to most consumers, with 4K TV and display penetration being quite low still. However, in the future it obviously will be. I still consider this a "fringe benefit" feature to the average smartphone consumer.

"• No dedicated shutter button"
What they mean is a two-stage shutter button, for AF/exposure and shutter release. Even my $50 Nokia 620 has a two-stage shutter button.

larrytusaz: No thank you. I have an NEX-6 that would just smoke this thing (and via Wi-Fi can still share quickly), and if I needed something really small I could always get an RX100. These sorts of cameras remind me of the junky Polaroid SX-70 candy cameras of yesteryear, I didn't care for those either.

I have my RX100 with me all the time. Thanks.

Guess you have never used a digitizer pen with tilt and pressure sensitivity.

Cane: Every time I find a Camera I think I will like, the dreaded, "AF is very slow" comment rears it's ugly head. I am tired of slow AF. When will this be a thing of the past and not a line in most new camera reviews still in 2014?

What are you shooting that requires blazing fast AF? Perhaps you should consider a DSLR like the 7D with 45 cross PDAF sensors... or just stick with an iPhone where everything is always in focused?

Jogger: Why is colour information so important in automotive applications? Wouldnt they just go monochrome and gain the efficiency of not having the colour filters.

ahhh.. that makes sense.

On Readers' Showcase: Documentary and Street photography article (109 comments in total)

Pretty much anyone with a camera is a "street photographer", no?

I suppose the limiting factor is not worrying about taking photos of strangers in public places (easier/safer in some places than others).

Sensor is far to small considering the size of the camera, they need to take some lessons from Sony.

In reply to:

mpgxsvcd: For me the LX100 is an alternative to buying the 12-35mm F2.8 lens for my GH4. I compared the LX100 to the GH4 sample test images and the LX100 looks like a great match for the GH4 and my 35-100mm F2.8 lens.

The GH4 has slightly better RAW noise characteristics but I like the color reproduction and lens of the LX100 better than the 12-35mm F2.8 m4/3s lens.

I think the LX100 is a home run. The 1 inch sensor cameras don’t look so great next to it now that we have seen some RAW files.

Let us know if you ever plunk down the $900 for it.

If something is worth taking a photo of, then use a real camera. This seems more like a client engagement - PR tool than real photography.

I'm more interested in the potential for scientific or educational applications. It would be a great, low cost option for undergrad labs or high school science class, etc.
