DonThomaso: A very good alternative if you don't want a MacBook Air is the Sony Vaio Pro 11/13-range. I recently bought a 11-inch (a nice Panasonic IPS 1920x1080 display) with 8 GB RAM and 256 GB SSD for €850. Best of all - magnesium body and weighing in at 0,87 kg! That's portable! I do most of my work on a desktop, else I would have considered the 13-inch.
100gramms lighter??No the 13 inch model without touch is 934gramms. The MB air is a wopping 1350gramms. Thats almost 50% havier. The sony vaio pro 13 has "ac" wifi. With 567Mbit/s.The 11inch model is even lighter.But the wifi card in the vaio pro is bad.It always loses connection...
grafli: MY Sony Vaio pro 13 makes the MB Air feel like a russian tank. The sony is only 938gramms, because its made with UD Carbon fibers. Even with a second battery its still lighter.But i like the sturdiness of the aluminium. And the trackpad on the MB.
Carbon Fibers are stronger than Aluminium and lighter. Elastic moulus is higher with UD Fiber in the autoclave process. The sony vaio pro 13 only flexes more because its built thiner than the MB.The difference is the cf will break at a much higher load than the aluminium will bend. But bending isn't as bad as breaking...

I hope it's as good as the 18-35mm F1.8I love the lense.
Well this lens is obsolet with the existence of the Sigma 18-35mm F1.8
Is this some kind of new razor? :-P
The image quality doesn't match the Camera... It looks like a Iphone HDR shot... (sorry ;-) )Was the Picture a lot smaller and did you enlarge it again?There are not details in the fields at all.
But the Windows XP flashback make it worth the win!
Peksu: Hopefully they add adjustable speed soon, two second trips across my city are surreal.
haha, 2 second trips across my country seemed sad :-P (Switzerland)
Reg Natarajan: With every camera capable of ISO 12800 these days, tripods are about as useful as slide rules to me. (I'll bet some of the younger people here don't even know what a slide rule is. Trust me, you're not missing anything.)
Night photografie isn't realy possible without a proper tripod.But if you're just shooting holiday snapshot, and only by day... then you really don't need a tripod...
Wow, very nice shot!
jpr2: yet another MILC from Samsung with no built-in VF? what a failure - it really starts to get tiring :( !!
@ DigitalVista: well the Nex 6 costs 1000$!! with the kit.
Well, Pentax bought Ricoh. In my eye's this is the next Ricoh GR Digital.Focal length steyed the same, the aperture got a little better (1.9->1.8)An they gave it a zoom lens!And of course they built in the typical Ricoh 1cm macro!
Well done Pentax!
mgm2: Hotshoe...why? With a lens this fast who uses flash? Well done Pentax
Well I prefere natural light, but sometimes (in my case seldomly) you have to use a proper flash.You almost can't take that thing to a studio because of the missing hotshoe...
I'm ipressed with the high ISO capabilities! This stuff wasn't possible even 2 Years ago. (It has better IQ than my EOS 7D)
DC Alford: I am disappointed to see that the Panasonic LX7 didn't make the list.
they allready have 2 Panasonics... thats why.It would feel like a conspiracy... ;-)
Craig Atkinson: I don't understand why in the 'compare' tool the RX100 isn't there - even when all categories is selected.
I like the sound of the G15 but other than the VF and the lens speed is there anything it has over the RX100? I have and use the RX100 but hate it, I use it purely for the sensor at 28mm. I prefer the GRD4 and am waiting for the GRD5 hopefully with larger sensor!
Well, the G15 has a brighter lens at enything else than f=28mm...But i see your point...
Henrik Herranen: Uhm, "1080p/60i"? This is a contradiction. Video cannot be progressive (p) and interlaced (i) at the same time.
That means 30Fps Sensor output, usually.60 are the interleaved fields that are shown together in one second for smoother video...It's s**t in Post Processing! You will get nasty Lines in the Picture...
tom sugnet: I have this phone and pictures look soft even after you've taken them (when previewed on screen). I guess the effective resolution is around 4 megapixels (due to strong NR), it's much much softer than my 6 megapixel Fuji F31fd (which I gave to my mother and don't use anymore).
Well there is no surprise that a larger 6MP sensor performs better in low light than a very small 8MP sensor.More Pixel area= better sensitivity
ennemkay: the lx and xz cameras have the same sensor and much better lenses. and the rx100 has a much better sensor and lens and similar pocketability. if it's priced more than $299 why would anyone but canon devotees buy an s110?
@marike6: have you seen the high ISO output from the XZ-1? compared to the superb S100/S95/S90 its two classes (F-Stops in Sensor Noise) behind!
Ok, you could argue that at tele the XZ-1 is 2 Stops brighter than the Canon... But thats the price for beeing pocketable...
