Shame there is no room for a built in flash.
Whilst I appreciate that they have limited abilities and range they can be very useful for candid stuff.
I would have thought the target audience for this camera it would have been included.
The Sony NEX range evolved to include flashes. I feel that would have been due to market needs. Even when they had the clip on one it folded down onto the camera quite neatly. When I had a NEX-5N the flash stayed on pretty much all the time and I soon purchased a NEX-6.

Liking most of the other stuff, cameras are certainly coming on at a fast pace. This sort of camera would have been a 'wish list' three or even less years ago.

sakahn: I would have bought it, if only it had a built-in flash. Such a shame. Carrying and attaching an important accessory is not convenient.

Additionally, it would be great to have a side-by-side comparison with Sony Rx100 iii and Canon G7 X.

Me too just what he said re the lack of built in flash.

Oh yer - just a minute everyone whilst I rummage in my pocket, find the flash attach the flash - oh you've all gone!!

Are you serious, no way surely not!
£130 for three pieces of cut sticky plastic - the world really and truly has gone mad!

I will stick with what it came with and feel compelled to make a decent donation to a worthwhile cause!

On Fujifilm announces XF 10-24mm F4 R OIS wideangle zoom article (172 comments in total)

Fuji make good quality lenses for the XF range I would like one covering that focal length but at that price out of my reach. Maybe secondhand in a couple of years.

On Nikon D610 preview (627 comments in total)

If ever there was evidence that there is a fundamental flaw in the D600 the D610 is it.
Released 12 months later with the major change the shutter mechanism!
There is no redress for those people that bought the D600 myself included.
Shame on Nikon for doing what they could to 'get away with it' - corporate stance deny the problem until that is no longer possible.
Offering a cleaning service and or a shutter replacement with one that does the same - flaking particles and residue onto the sensor.

Serious irreparable damage has been done to the company reputation - this D610 replacement seals that fact.
Despite the small gesture of an individual like myself people (plural) do vote with there wallets!!
Caveat emptor - if there should be a different issue with the D610 do you now have faith that the company will sort it for you?!

On Leica announces X Vario zoom compact with APS-C sensor article (757 comments in total)

Mmm

Not compact, slow lens -- why
Leica groupies may buy it but there are better cameras for a fraction of the price.

I was expecting something else and something better
its a no from me

justmeMN: Whatever it's other flaws, a snapshot camera that can actually capture moving kids and pets is a Good Thing.

I have been an avid follower of digital cameras and photography since its inception. I really do not get these new Nikon's.
I think they have gone too left filed and I just cannot see it being a success.
Hope I am wrong but I do not see the target group it is intended for buying into it.
My wife is not going to put one of those in her bag over a smaller four thirds camera such as GF2 or EPL2 with a pancake lens.
