fruehaufsteher2: In theory, this is really a great invention. I belive that image-quality will be undoubtly great and with its update-cycles the app will work fine.
Not so good and sales-limiting is the fixed lens. Usually 35mm will be used mainly for "street-fotography", but then a very short time between taking out the camera and making the shot is needed. I fear that it takes too long taking out the "one", open it, connect to iPhone an take the shot. With these limitations I won't buy it.
If it had a manual zoom withe the range of the RX100, this cam would be mine as soon as it arrives at the german market.

What is more inconspicuous than staring at a smart phone? Everyone is doing it. A camera on your neck is not nearly as inconspicuous as an iPhone held horizontally to see what the Dx0 swiveled vertically is photographing. I plan to use it for street photography in places like Germany where there is no tolerance for candid street photography.
CP3Photographer: What a rave review. You must have signed up for a class that was way below your talent level to feel so let down about the Master Class. I can't speak about the New York Master Class but I can speak about the Master Class in Atlanta, Ga.
As for the outline goes Mr. Clay went over all the outlined topics and asked if anyone had questions. We all had a chance to get up in front the class and perform his teachings first hand. We had two students win half off his one on one class. One of the students had the pose and lighting correct but failed to raise the camera above the head to shoot the photograph and won half off his one on one class. We spent most of the day outside on location around Atlanta shooting with five models and shooting one another in different poses while Mr. Clay and Mr. Calvin walked around from small group to small group checking on how we were progressing.
Thanks to Mr. Clay for what he does for our industry!! CP3
I accepted Mr. Medford's (producer of the tour) invitation to call him and discuss my experience of the workshop. I called and he explained that an assistant's error of forgetting to put a wedding job on the calendar had as one of its repercussions the scheduling of the engaged couple's photo shoot which encroached on the class time. Also, that Blackmore's car had been broken into that day and his speedlights stolen. Since the workshop I had purchased did not conform to its description, indeed, fell quite short of its promised components, I was offered a refund. Although that does not compensate me for the travel expense to and from NYC from South Central PA, it is fair enough. According to Mr. Medford, the workshop, when not bedeviled by overlooked wedding shoots and stolen speedlights, is better.
As you acknowledged, you can't speak about the New York Master Class. But I can, having attended it.
The only thing I would add is that two days ago, after emailing a complaint, I finally received the promised software.
