How do you hold it with one hand, there is no finger hold on the front and no thumb grip on the back, and your thumb will be right on top of the video start button?
Rocco Maggi: Always funny hearing people form the West worrying about starvation in North Korea.Only 60 years ago UN forces were slaughtering "gooks" by the millions, and one of their last military "operations", the destruction of several dams near Pyongyang (spring-summer '53, very Dresden style), was specifically conceived in order to flood the paddy fields and inflict death... by starvation.
Thanks for the reminder, its disgusting to even read about it.
E_Nielsen: Politics aside, I really like the 360-degree panoramic images. What a great way to capture a moment.
I agree, it is a spectacular presentation.
brianj: Looks like it is easier to do photography there than in the US and probably much less likely to be shot by a crazed madman. I am waiting for the tours to be available.
For your sake I hope you are one of the lucky ones.

I like these, I try to achieve similair sometimes but never to this excellent standard.
If only they had widened the lens to 24mm, oh well maybe next time.
MayaTlab0: I don't understand what this kind of product does better than other existing devices. Operationally, I really have a hard time figuring out the competitive advantage of such a device. It's like making a smartphone less pocketable or a camera less ergonomic.
It provides another gadget for the phone owner to buy, they will love it.
brianj: Only $79 for that bit of rubber grip !!!
Ah, so we aren't just talking about that black strip !

Why carry an unweildy thing the size of a short drain pipe and a rat trap when you could carry a slim superzoom P&S and get better results.
brianj: Interesting, it has the same size and type of sensor at the canon SX260HS, yet has not got as wide angle nor anywhere near as much zoom. Ah, I see, its called enthusiast because it sports a f1.8 aperture lens.
I wondered what the name 'enthusiast' meant!
Or a fool and his money are soon parted. LOL
Maybe the word enthusiast means someone who spends a lot of money !
Then I won't look, I don't use raw, have no need for it, I guess its one of the prices we pay for all that zoom in our pocket. I have another 24mm f1.8 camera, this one is for distant stuff on a tour. I think it will serve the purpose well.
Does it matter whether we bend light with a glass lens or a computer? I don't doubt there a plenty of compromises in the lens, but I won't even think about that when I am on my trip :-)
Rachotilko: I want this ! This device utilizes the advantages of small sensor digicam in the best possible way.
It makes one wonder why devices like this one have been so rare ? Why the myriads of f/3.1-f/6 point&shoots and none of f/1.8-f/2.7 ?
I have been using a P&S with f/1.8-f/2.7 and a larger sensor for the last three years, why is this so revolutionary?

I wonder if this ZTE will have firmware that locks up all the time like the old ZTE T6 and then there is zero support or updates from ZTE. Never again.
Social Networks become very anti-social, especially with each other.
brianj: Its almost as ridiculous as the size of the DSLR just for taking a child's photo!
Possibly for a professional, but I was unable to tell if the article was showing a professional photographer or not. It looks like someone shooting outside their house.
