Lovely!but many people can't catch or throw straight up :) .
D200_4me: I'll never understand why people get so worked up over new cameras. I mean, all the complaints and "they should have done this or that" comments. Seriously folks...if you don't like a certain new camera, don't buy it. You don't have to act like a child in public over it. Grow up a little :-) It seems everyone here is a expert market analyst and knows exactly what the public wants. Oh and they're the best engineers in the world too...much, much smarter than any camera manufacturers teams ;-) That's how they act anyway. Too funny.
I also think the same and usually only check out the top comments to get people's general view . My view is with me.
acidic: "It's in my hands again" is what I say to myself during every visit to the urinal.
You have to be very careful with the one line tags these daysand the video doesn't help either .Looks like he left his car on the road and went little out to take a p--
But since this is dpreview this cant be happening ..its camera related. Trust me! :)
JustFred: Soon we will have artificial eyes. Expect artificial eyes in the near future which will eliminate the need for smartphone's with screens altogether. We will all have our natural eyes removed and have artificial 4D electronic robot eyes installed. We will have smart chips implanted in our brains which will be Wi-Fi enabled and have build in smartphone technology. We will be able to upload and download directly into our brains which will in essence become our main computer thus eliminating all cloud technology at the same time. Camera's will become obsolete as we will be able to photograph with our robot eyes. These robot eyes will be insect like with millions of little receptors. TV screens will become obsolete as we will be able to view TV programs directly with our new eyes. It will be like we are really there because the images are transferred directly into our brain. What we see will be like we are really there. That will be called 4D or total reality.
Then privacy campaigners will make it mandatory to remove your eyes at public places.
keeponkeepingon: I can't believe you are still continuing to call the RX10 a super zoom.
8X does not a super zoom make.
It looks like a interesting camera but mislabeling is not doing a service to anyone.
Based on the sensor size ..it should be
(unknown member): I have to express what I find most amusing about this story. Whenever someone announces a new idea in the camera field it seems like there are two camps: patient and impatient. The patient people see a release of camera technology in the context of photographic advancment over decades and understand the average pace of change is usually pretty incremental. The other camp of impatient people see cameras as computers with lenses on them and want exciting changes every six months. Those impatient people are usually the ones who use the word "innovation" a lot. Now a company comes out with a really innovative product and the patient people don't really see the need for it and the innovation pushers criticize it for missing the point. Smartphone photographers: your phone is always going to suck compared to a real camera. Suck. Just really, really suck. A lot....in a vast majority of situations. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram in good health....while sucking.This is innovation.
:) I would like to add a 3rd camp. people like you who remind this . I too fall in this cat though.
SWSF14: Bulkier than an actual RX100, indeed!
If Sony were to make the "cheaper" unit for approx $100 it could sell, WELL. Advertise the zoom and video capabilities and wireless uploading possibilities with apps and they would be set. Oh, and make a white one.
This is how you bring the best of both . QX10 and Any other decent Smart Phone will do. Spending on camera phone like Galaxy s4 zooms are forever bulky but with this you can carry your slim phone and optionally QX lens when you in a clicky mood.
An A38(a37 successor) Slt at similar price range would have been better
It will exist..how genuine can citizens sourced photography be at all times.
yudhir: I would buy this if it was sony
yeah! i dig those grips but certainly not at those price
I would buy this if it was sony
Michael Foran: Just like Sony to come up with a great idea but then waste it with their proprietary selfishness. A camera that can run apps is a great idea (probably not theirs but whatever). It would open up a world of possibilities with the ability to add features to a good camera without having to hope and wait for firmware updates. But they waste it by not releasing an API so third parties can develop for it. Come on Sony! Put it out there and watch a community of developers rally around your platform. You would have features that no other camera would have. Keep it closed, and keep putting out crap like 'God Rays,' and all you are doing is alienating your base.
first iphone took 6 month to open up.
What is new?
Alizarine: I think the Sony NEX will still be smaller APS-C and the Pentax Q is still the smallest ILC...
but thanks for the effort, Canon.
as a DSLR. It should be..i don't know if sony a37 slt is that small.
Kabe Luna: Smart pause is creepy. The only way that works is if the front facing camera is always leering at you, using facial recognition to know when you're not facing the screen. Who knows what privacy-averse Google is doing with that video stream. No thanks.
lol !Always turn off your WiFi/4G connection while watching video.
Very Good! Its seems like holding a printed paper ,very light,realistic and for the first time taking smartphone a step back to normal life.
