I've taken so many photos over the years of the same things where I live that it wouldn't let me take anything ever again.
This is the sensor size and zoom range I have been waiting for, finally a lesser known company like casio produces one. Now I just have to figure out where these can be bought in Australia.
brianj: I can buy a canon ELPH for $200, with 24-240 mm optical zoom, can someone explain why this camera with less features and a higher price is more desirable.
I would happily buy one of these cameras like the one reviewed if it had a zoom lens. The IQ is more than enough for my needs. I am hoping that by the time P&S are extinct that they will have worked out how to fit a small zoom lens to these phones.
It sounds like a jack of all trades but a master of none. The main concern is that if these devices kill the P&S, what will we buy as a decent replacement.

Why send anyone, just ignore them, that's what they fear the most.
So the best is the one with the biggest sensor, irrespective of any other shortcomings.
Michael Long: The camera in the new iPhone 6 / 6 Plus rivals (if not bests) most small sensor P&S cameras, and we're just in year 7 of the smartphone era.
IOW, smartphone cameras are only going to get better and as such they're going to cramp the P&S market more and more and more.
Factor in the APS-C class mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras taking out high-end DSLR sales, and it doesn't take much to see that camera companies are competing to offer their wares to an ever shrinking market.
I'm still waiting for the phone cameras to get a decent zoom, maybe then they will make a real impact.
Lee Jay: They might be nice, but every one of them is too big to be comfortably pocketable for me, and so they're all non starters. I don't know what I'll do when my Elph 500HS dies, as nothing newer can replace it.
That's why I bought two ELPH 330HS and cross my fingers that they last a long time.
It provides a very expensive P&S camera without any zoom, I wonder why people fall for it.
Lassoni: all I see is woman's butt. This is plain wrong!
What's wrong with seeing a woman's butt?
brianj: Let the person who has never downloaded copyright software, music or videos critisise him.
The latter, but I must admit english is becoming polluted with american spelling probably due to the internet.From the above link:English: criticise, criticizeUS: criticize
We speak english here in Australia!http://www.englishclub.com/writing/spelling_american-english.htm
Then feel free to criticise.
I could have used an alternate analogy due to the shortage of plutonium. Like, is selling guns and bullets a crime, no, not in most places, its using the gun to kill somebody that is a crime. Just because someone will sell you a gun doesn't make it right to kill someone with it, same as information, you do not have to act on it and do the crime. This is how it has always been, unless I have not noticed some change occuring in society.
