Another ugly and disappointing design. Sign.

The retained hot shoe design is way much better than that on SONY's NEX series.
NEX's make me think of toys.

Just use two words to describe this photo: exceptional and impressive.

I found this SONY HX100V lacks of hotshoe for external flash mount. Otherwise it is up to Panasonic's FZ-150. I wonder if people care (worry) about this missing feature when considering HX100v and FZ-150.

I don't know why Sony refuses to add a hotshoe for flash.

I like this design. If the IQ holds up to Panasonic's TS10, I will definitely buy one.
Among compact cameras, Sony and Pentax's exterior designs are the best looking ones while Canon's, the most ugly.

Canon and Nikon's reluctance to respond to the mirrorless camera market is merely a fear of their own DSLR share being eroded. Slow action only translates to the intention to succumb to competition and future failure.

Diversification of their product line is the way to go.

Aleo Veuliah: I think this lens will go to outperform the old 14-42mm, good lens and nano coating

Definitely. Because the old Panasonic 14-42mm kit lens is the most crappy lens among micro 4/3 system.

Frankly speaking, this Samsung NX200 looks far nicer than NEX's.
Sony should take a look at their own products designed in the 1980's.
SONY used to mean sexy, nowadays it means TOYOTA or boring.
I see SONY does put a lot of efforts in the product design, but in the wrong way.

ProfHankD: NX is to Pentax as NEX is to Minolta, and Samsung seems to be trying to learn from Sony's "mistakes" -- especially the gaps in E-mount lens offerings.
However, I have not seen the proliferation of lens adapters for NX that are there for micro4/3 and E-mount -- and the adapters are why I have a NEX in addition to an A55. The NX mount has a long flange distance compared to mciro4/3 and E, and C-mount lenses are problematic, but all old SLR lens mounts could be glasslessly adapted. Until they are, I think NX is missing a large fraction of the high-end appeal of mirrorless cameras....

To my knowledge, there are quite a few lens adapters to adapt old SLR lenses to use on NX bodies. But they are quite more expensive than those for M4/3 bodies ($40 vs $15). Check on eBay to find more.

Little bit pricey. Lower price and increased market share may be what Samsung should put their focus on. Smart marketing is far important.

Why does Panasonic single out G1 and G2 users? Are we cheap users that Panasonic won't bother caring about?

I think there are more G1 GF1 and G2 users than GH2 GF2 and G3 users.

On Richard Franiec grip coming soon for Olympus PEN E-PL3 article (38 comments in total)

I see a lot of people whine about the lack of grip on the E-PL3. For me, I wouldn't buy the camera if there were one on the camera. The grip ruins the sexy look of this fine piece of jewel.

Photo quality is good if not amazing. Given Sony's HX100V at $400.00, Panasonic's price is not impressed at all. Will buy it when price drops to below $300, which is my best offer.

Wow, ISO3200 beats my Nikon D50's quality on ISO800.
Thanks.

In reply to:

olyflyer: Maybe it is time for me to have a serious look at this camera... I liked the NEX ever since the NEX3, but the lack of built in VF stopped me from showing a serious interest, but now with this new camera it is different... The only thing I don't like (from what I read so far) is that stupid Sony specific flash shoe. Why can't Sony use the industry standard established a very long time ago is behind my comprehension.

Anyway... Excellent work Sony and good luck with the sales.
Looking forward to the full review.

Sony should learn the lesson taught with their beta home video system over the most popular VHS one. As a matter of fact, all these annoying non standard flash hotshot, memory stick (vs SD), ATRAC (vs MP3) will hurt Sony's sales rather than help.

I think this camera will be a sure killer to Canon 600D (T3i) on specs and its price level.

$200? I think Pentax won't stop tossing up our consumers's pocket until they find $2000.

It doesn't accept standard SD cards? Going to Micro SD makes thing nasty. If Sony can accommodate a Memory Stick card, they can an Secure Digital card as well.
