The Powershot D20 may have a slow lens but at least preserves fine-details better due to low NR. How hard could it be for Olympus to include NR options or Raw? Guess not so hard..
I find it somewhat laughable that Fujifilm have copied the "M" from Leica rangefinders at the same time as using the M for their most simple model which in fact should be for the X-Pro1.So what is the next joke from Fujifilm? Probably that the jpegs with badly smudged foliage still remain unchanged from previous models in the X-series? At least i might guess so unless they've some other bad card to play on..I could have considered the X20 if it not had been for that very irritating flaw.At least they've got the tilt-lcd right with the X-M1. Hope to see options with low NR included as well and I might test one.
A review first now - One year late. I've already had a D20 but returned it.
Competitors like C1 are about to grow as Adobe feed them like this. The attitude of Adobe might need to grow a pair, away from this recently upcoming childishness not to lose users.
No support for Samsung NX eh?
Almost as laughable and pathetic as Leica with all their nonsense white and whatever colours of their M-models.
Still same slow zoom. The Powershot D20 have a similar slow zoom though with better macro and no crazy NR. Time to wake up, Fujifilm, and follow in the footsteps of TG1 and Pentax WG-3 though with way lower NR!
Hopefully Canon improved the somewhat slow AF and also kept the Low NR from the SX260.
No lenses compatible with Fujifilm X or Samsung NX_mount eh? That's too bad as these two currently leads the pack.
Rather, Actual Nightmare, app, as it reveals just how bad NR in the Iphone 5 is ;)Iphone 4 and and 4S seem to be better, not to mention the Nokia N8 and PV 808.
Richard Murdey: Ricoh GR Digital is worried right about now.
Guess not. Ricoh filed a patent for a new Aps-c 28mm equivalent lens which probably is going to be used in the GRD V. Not same lens as in the GXR A12 28mm.As usually in the compact camera segment, Ricoh is going to offer superior customizable user interface.
AllOtherNamesTaken: 1/2.3" for $400? Pass. Again.
Yes. A similar waste like the Nikon Coolpix P300 and P310 which also had fast lens at the wide end but only 1/2.3" Cmos or Bsi-cmos.At least the P310 wa a good improvement over the P300 with a new sensor, better jpeg engine and Nr Low as option which the P300 not had. But still, no raw. At least the XZ-10 offer raw.
schaki: Sounds great. That we finally get a 'PV 808' with WP8.I've lost count of how mani times I for myself have cursed the headless decision of Nokia to stick with that old, outdated Symbian OS POS for a model like the 808 which had so held so much potential.
Maybe them should have given such a model decent hardware to run able WP8, then...

The usual Samsung detail-destruction NR. Hardly a surprise... How long can it possibly take until them learn from that mistake.
Problem is that there is probably not many users left which still actively uses their E-4x0, 5x0. May be different for 600-users and diehard E-1, E-3 and E-5 users.Many have may have made the switch to other dslrs which offered better high iso and Dr and maybe even switched to Olympus m4/3 or some other mirrorless system. The future in general for Dslrs aint looking very bright with the mirrorless system beginning to catch up in AF-speed which many of them still lagged behind.
Luckily the camera is probably going to be available in black also.Same zoom as in Olympus TG-2 and likely same but a 16mp Bsi-Cmos compared to 12mp Bsi Cmos in TG-1 and TG-2.Already wonder what of these which are going to use least Nr to preserve finedetails. The waterproof Pentaxes have not been good since the W90 which used too much NR. But the same can be said about most of the waterprof Olys too with the TG-1 as an exception.
slick83: Since I am in the market for rugged compact camera that will survive mu busy urban/rural life. I took my time to check Nikon's site for some details.
According to Nikon site:
-= Waterproof =-* on camera body itself 18m/59ft: http://cdn-4.nikon-cdn.com/en_INC/o/ET360lcITrS5AL5UdjBwI83CY_Y/Views/26412_AW110_front.png
* in specs sheet:JIS/IEC protection class 8 (IPX8) equivalent (under our testing conditions) Up to a depth of 5 m (16.4 ft) and for 60 minutes

Hmmm, I wonder, is it really 18m/59ft ?
As long as Image quality is high piority, the Olympus TG2 should be the best option unless they've gone crazy with the NR. Also the Canon Powershot D20 from last year is good, but the lens is slow already at the wide end.Nikon AW100 was crap because of too much NR and I doubt that the new AW110 is better. But we might be in for a nice surprise if we are lucky.
Come on Fuji. Develop a waterproof XP1, provide it with a zoom with 2.8 or faster aperture at the wide end. The sensor should be the new 2/3"'X-Trans Cmos 12mp sensor. Also drop that lousy 9 cm macro which the current 28-140 mm zoom offer. It is not good for anything really when compared to other competing waterproof cameras which have better close-focus.
I hoped that more manufacturers would follow in the footsteps of Olympus and perhaps go for a zoom with a larger aperture then the norm, at the wide end, at least 2.8.
What about the Sticky Aperture Blade problem from the X100? Finally fixed or not? Posts about X100 being sent in for the SAB still shows up frequent in the forum.
