art99: The video rec/pause red button seems extremely small on the top. Can any camera manufacturer ever, ever, ever come up with having the camera larger, more comfortable shutter button ALSO be used as the video rec/pause button. Seems insignificant but extremely important to those that do a lot of video. What happened to the headphone out jack ? another seemingly unimportant omission.

you don't always have to be in the Movie mode to record video, you can record video in any mode and the red button starts/stops recording and the shutter button can take pictures of the scene being recorded on video.

fzand: Ricoh's strategy of creating complex modules that include everything on a relatively dumb chasis is an interesting idea, but it also presents a big cost and complexity challenge that everytime you want to buy a lens you are practically buying a new camera with all its issues regarding firmware, etc.

My point is that this is a challenging idea. The problem that I was stating is that with each lens and sensor, you probably have to have a different firmware, also what problem are they solving here, if you want the full DSLR range, as this APS module competes with, then you are going to buy additional lenses (and sensors) to get the full range of prime, zoom and macro lenses. you end up carrying just as much in your camera bag as you would with other body and lens options. I like to "invest" in lenses and have the option of upgrading the body as sensor technology improves. Here you are frozen in time with the coupled lens and sensor.
