kdaphoto: Sure, competition has leveled the playing field, that was inevitable. But here's why I'll upgrade.
1. I have iPhone 4, so it's time. 2. I use it for much more than the camera (I'm a professional photographer), the camera is good enough for my purposes3. All my equipment is Apple, so it works well together. It was a conscious choice to switch to Apple years ago. I got tired of dicking with equipment to make things talk to each other, sync properly, dealing with anti-virus software, and all the other downsides of windows. It was cutting into my productivity. 4. These are tools not religion or my ego. Right now, the Apple environment works best for me. If something better comes along for the complete package, I'll switch.
Apple has the best ecosystem, no doubt.
Finally something interesting and different in the world of news cameras.
I still put in doubt whether this type of camera is really practical. In principle, to use this lens / camera it takes two hands, one to hold the lens, one to hold the phone or tablet, it will not be practical in its true use. Many consumers call for practical things, which are lightweight and easy to maneuver. This type of device I doubt it's as practical as we want to convince. I find it interesting and innovative idea, but not practical for casual photography I think, and this context will be very hard to frame the image with some precision too. Perhaps more specific situations for its use is better exploited, but not a compact equivalent, such as for example RX100. The RX100 will in my view, more practical to use than this concept, or any other compact camera.
just wait three months, and you get this one for price of the current EP-5 at least.
1107... Where is the night shots?
Cheap technology is expensive. +$7,00 a Gb in one piece.
The price of 5C unlocked without communication plan it is good to bring me some cold beers from the refrigerator and bring me hot coffee too. Low Cost!? On Mars.
At present there are many people who do not know what to do with their lives without social networks like FB, G+ and others. These social networks are the reason for their existence often. What we have in social networks, shared phrases and tons of publicity, unless specific situations, in fact the people themselves, do not sharing something original and unique, they share what millions of people share, aaahh and make millions of Likes too...without talking.Social?
It is time to start lowering the price of the lenses, since they will produce more, or is it a utopia?I doubt that many prospective buyers will buy lenses, or have more lenses than what comes included in the starter kit. Buying a $500 body, and then buying a $1000 or $1500 lens?uhmmmThe concept of sales of cameras starts to be the same concept of selling printers.
At least offer a red light!
This Gadget deserve a pop-up flash, could be small to match the style, which was still better than the flash of smartphones. Maybe the next gen. will become with one, for more that $150 for sure.
The soaps continue. See next chapters in the near future.
To follow a market trend, and satisfy a specific niche of customers. Perhaps it is now a good deal for them. An idea, Ilford should make an free app for smartphone focused only on black and white photography. Could be a good way to get to know the brand and products for many new users.
Unfortunately this is a world of make-believe, the people accept, because man is an animal of habit. What is natural nowadays suspects. The time we set out the discovery of natural landscapes, social values, talking with people on the terraces and cafes, on the street corner, sharing a house with friends is increasingly less common, even being in a family. Nowadays increasingly everything is at a distance of a button, a false scenario, a filter, a mobile phone, and forget the contact with reality, and with people and real things. Virtual reality came upon us without doubt. A few more than others.
Flickr app with real time filters is very interesting.
No I don't need 41mp camera, I need less noise, a clean image, a better IQ with a good optical image stabilization for sure. More sensor size than pixels.
Digitall: Wait, the flash is on the right side (photographer perspective) near the grip, where usually the photographer puts his hand to hold the camera and shot?!Modern engineers...
Yes thats true, I was looking that little curved ridge. In practice no one will feel it when taking a picture over the time. They want to be different, then do things practical and functional. This is a failure of design.

jcmarfilph: Yawn...still the same phone with mediocre camera with bumped up MP for more smeary result. And some so-so (10 years ago) features added.
CIA, FBI and NSA like the fingerprint reader too.
Product vs Price = Sony 1 - Competition 0
