Photato: Is not really the Smartphone.
Nokia is gone, Blackberry is in life support and many Android makers are barely breaking even.

Just make a good exciting product and people will buy it.
Just look how succeful GoPro has been.

P&S manufacturers reacted with throwing longer zooms and more pixels at the problem.
Even the more advanced larger sensor cameras have a lot of catching up to what is possible. You know things are really wrong when you have to beg for a simple Intervalometer. Maybe in next year model?

The camera market is so ready for a new disruption and that wont come from todays hyper conservatyve manufacturers.

You're last line.... perfect. Totally agree.

Ricoh to me has been one of the best of the bunch, and so has Olympus to a degree, but I think many enthusiasts are tired of the progressive trend of conservatism they've seen for years. That said, fundamental controls are always welcomed, so where to go next.... ? I don't get paid to figure it out- I just know what I like when I see it. Manufacturers need to figure it out.

marc petzold: The OVF looks way good - does it have 100% coverage? And, the diopter adjustment on top of it is very classy, simple & greatly made. Nice Design of the new S, for those who can afford it. ;)

Agree Marc, the VF is one of the most attractive looking parts on the camera. Damien, can you comment on it more?

Thanks

Sexiest camera being sold currently.... hands down. If I had extra cash lying around I'd invest in this, and three lenses.

tocar: I still have the TG-1 and a TG-3. I wouldn't buy the TG-4 just because of it's RAW feature.

So you mean, upgrading to the new model is insane for you because of the raw feature- yes got it.

IZO100: ahhh 4/3 ratio... What a silly idea.

IZO 100 - hey ding dong, you're a ding dong. I speak for all of us and all of us agree.

Eomivik: This is perfect for taking pictures of people without their permission for street photography.

Street photography doesn't require permission.

In reply to:

Sanpete in Utah: Yet another DPR review that doesn't give the sensor size up front where it should be.

"so the reader not familiar with the camera already has no proper way to classify it until checking another page"

God forbid they have to do that.

But what about those who want it hidden or last or on the side or top?

CekariYH: Great supporting RAW for this kind of cameras.
I don't have an Olympus but that might change when I feel the need to ditch my other "pocket" camera.

thx1138- oh by your standards, would have helped if you clarified that from the beginning. Fair enough, but obviously there are many other measures of standards out there. Of course IQ could have been improved but there is always a set of tradoffs and compromises.

Probably because you don't shoot raw.

In reply to:

Rick Knepper: As a non-professional landscape enthusiast, I judge my own images by their uniqueness to me. The first time I visit a locale, I shoot the iconic and tourist overlooks with some hiking. On the 2nd, 3rd, and future trips, effort is exerted to find something in that locale I hadn't seen yet. Emphasis on "I haven't seen it" (or shot it).

I have a similar tactic myself Rick. The iconic locations are that way for a reason, but if the end goal is to be artistic- then be artistic. That means you have to avoid the "obvious" shot and doing so takes preparation, experimentation, time, and even a little luck sometimes (with weather or other uncontrollable influences).

Caerolle: Resolution wise, Fuji just never comes out well in these comparisons with DPR's Adobe-based images, does it? If I were Fuji, I would bribe someone at Adobe to fix ACR.

Adobe and Fuji are working together- it will pan out soon.

Lightcapture: These are interesting examples! The difference between the jpeg and the raw portraits in iso6400 is very telling!

Isn't it.
Sony's Jpeg engine has been a thorn and bug bear for years.... they still think the polls they use should determine the output quality of the Jpeg engine. I.e., they think people want mush for breakfast.
