CalBoy87: It has a nice colors and I like the use of negative space. I would crop the shot, to make the human element much larger in relation to the rest of the space. Also agreed with SM82 comment regarding burning the corners of the shot.
Thank you both for your constructive comments. If I'm allowed to respond (admin: please remove my comment, otherwise) the human element is not large on purpose, in order to accentuate the vastness of the sea in relation to the human element.
Excellent focus balance between the foreground and background. I also like the colours, sky and water being almost colour-aligned. On the negative side, I'm a bit confused on the clarity of the overall composition, and that the human element is almost invisible.
The texture of the foreground has a very strong impact to the eyes. However, the burnt out sky is a negative as well as the half-shadowed human forms (neither purely shadows nor clearly visible). I like it.
The camera elevation makes this composition interesting. However, I'm not sure the people are adding or detracting from it. Best,
A potentially successful camera in Sony's faildom.
RStyga: This is, in my opinion, the only Instax Mini with an acceptable -if not attractive- design. I hope its silver parts are made of some metal, not painted plastic. The price needs to come down a bit, and it will be a success.
Currently, it's $8 per 10-photo pack. Not bad...

Impressively compact, beautiful design and, hopefully, comparable to competition in terms of RAW output. The only certain drawback is the lack of inexpensive X lenses; if you want a highly compact package (say, using the 27mm or, even, the 18mm) you're looking at $1300 plus. Think GX-1 + 14mm starting at $400 and you'll get the point.
Great camera but the price difference between GX7 and GX1 is abysmal at this time. Maybe in the future GX7 will be more competitive to the GX1 unless one needs the upgraded performance of the GX7 right now.
I think it's a wise decision. Personally, it seems a stronger brand name "Pentax" for DSLR/DLSMs and "Ricoh" for compacts. Pentax never got to release any decent compacts besides, perhaps, MX-1, while Ricoh has impressed the industry with its line of advanced compacts for quite a few years. Good move.
Zvonimir Tosic: Updated the Q with this firmware. One obvious notice is that camera is blazingly fast focusing, and focus peaking seems to work even nicer.A support for a model long discontinued and which already has 2 successors — thank you Pentax!
Two questions:- Did you upgrade from the original FW or the previous version?- How fast is "blazingly" fast? Is it as fast a current Micro 4/3 camera with the current 14-42 kit lens? Please provide a reliable comparison.Regards
zakaria: This camera in my opinion as a concept will not die.
I second that. K-01 is phenomenal for what it offers at such a low price. Full stop.
I can't believe what I read... a full review of a Q-mount camera is in the making? Better late than never...
RStyga: I do not follow the review priorities of this site. You spend time reviewing a camera like D20 and skip reviewing other much more important ones. This looks bad... almost "dodgy". Shape up a bit, please.
You watch too many teen movies...
You have indeed skipped more important cameras; e.g. Pentax Q. Gone. Now there is Q10. Are you planning to skip this as well?
limlh: They could have made it into a very competitive camera, but it isn't. The only thing they can play around with is the price. They didn't learn from the K01 disaster.
The "K-01 disaster"? That's subjective, at best. K-01 is the only Pentax-mount camera I have kept... For its concluding price it is an extremely powerful camera.
One with maple syrup for me, please.
I'm stupefied by Leica.

At last! I can now retire my Canon A1000... :-)))
