Uaru: Actually I just sent a direct message to Fuji Headquarters about minimal speed for AutoISO. They should know how important it is for us (I assume, it is not only me who wants the minimal speed for AutoISO)...

For autoISO you can set the requred minimal speed on the shutter speed dial. This way it works for me very well and I think it is elegant implementation of this feature.

marike6: Nice review but why are all the comment from last evening gone?

It seems that there are two parallel discussions related to Nokia 808 review, this one and the following one (on bottom of page):

In reply to:

guif: Sad sarcastic comments, tomorrow all cameras will be plenoptic ... Just as all cameras are now digital, back in the times the same stupid pepple were saying "that is not a camera yada ... Yada ... " and the same crowd cries after the performances of the new canikon toy ..

@Wisniewski:

Alhough my first comment was response to original post, it seems that you are offended my opinion which is so strongly different from yours.

So be assured, that I have no intention argument with you, and I only repeat the simple fact that in Ng invention physical laws are not broken, but available technology is not mature enough to take advantage of this invention.

So was in past with many other inventions, which are today common things...

As a physicist I carefully read the PhD dissertation of Ng, inventor of Lytro. There is nothing inherently bad in his invention.

Unfortunately, available technology doesn't always keep pace with great inventions.

Regarding dishonesting comments addressed to Lytro, I fully agree with statement of Rabbi Shlomo Riskin:

"When you're one step ahead of the crowd you're a genius. When you're two steps ahead, you're a crackpot."

CG33: Shut, 867 comments in less than one day!
It does not matter what all the camera super duper gurus say. This is just the first step, the second one, will outsell the rest, the same way Canon has always done.

Do you really think it's meaningful to judge quality of manufacturer' cameras based on sales numbers?

If so, then I have bad news for you, camera phones of any relevant phones manufacturer easily outsell all Canon products.

Zdenek Janda: I think that the photographs clearly show that olympic athletes, although at top in their sport discipline, are just people as you and me, and not "superhumans".

I am sure, that photographed athletes are not embarrassed by these photographs. As athletes have enough confidence in themselves, they don't need, and in most cases don't want, be photographed same way as fashion models.

I am making assumptions based on fact that athletes voluntarily posed the way the were photographed and I am not aware that anybody of these athletes is complaining in this matter. Their attitude is in agreement with my experiences with top athletes.

BTW, It's rude from you don't respect my wish to stop communication!

@T3 "It's called prejudice: making assumptions and pre-judgements about people without knowing them simply based on what they do or how they look. Really sad."

Look into the mirror and contemplate who is man to which such assertion belongs.

Please don't bother communicate with me anymore.

@T3 , @xtoph

To my friends belong many excellent sportsmen (both men and women), even former top ten ATP tennis player, another one silver medallist from former Olympic games, and my wife was junior national team member in tennis.

I can assure you that all of them are humans just as you and me, with great selfconfidence AND with much greater sense of humour, self-irony and tolerance than people who "cares" about "unflattering" photographs of athletes.

It seems to me that you and your clients have very narrow view what is "proper" looking portrait.

And certainly you don't know what selfconfidence based on real inner strenght is.

You really think that these photographs are humiliating the athletes? Well it's your opinion, not my. Better, ask athletes if they regret that they were photographed and presented this way..

If I was boy again, and athletics was my interest, I would really like post any of these pictures over bed, as reminder that ordinary looking guy can, with enough effort and luck, reach the Olympic games.

Based on fact that tens of world agentures chosed these photographs for presentation of athletes, maybe for the same reasons I wrote down, it seems that your view in this matter is not prevaling, fortunately.

stanginit: next will be robotic athletes.

@Dimitri Khoz: Actually, as I am aware, it's already going on in many social networking sites, especially in Facebook and Twitter. Fortunately Dpreview forums are not targeted, yet.
