Looking good GoPro. Exactly what I need.
Nice move on Sony's behalf. Nice integration of Wi-Fi and useable app software. If it is a step up from the 5n, this will be a fantastic upgrade. Now all we need is some more lenses in front of these great bodies.
Superka: Who are these "independent videographers" who can buy this camera for 8000? Most will stay with Panasonic GH2(the best sharp choise), Canon 60D or 5DM2. 8000$ can be all the budget of videographer, and they must buy one or two additional camera, lenses, sound...
Have you see the cars they drive????
I think Canon made exactly the right move and are targeting the perfect audience/market. Touchscreen controls, great form factor(S100 body but bigger) simple to use interface similar to most of the smartphones on the market but with a pretty damn good sensor and AF with Low light capabilities that are pretty much class leading and good resolution. I feel it is priced just right and the masses will come and buy this. And to boot, fantastic video capabilities for the consumer/prosumer who wants the best of both worlds.
Good job Canon. Little innovation with the use of existing components and assembly, for great profit margins. Can't say it was a bad business move in any regard.
Roger Knight: I have read a lot of these posts and I think some of the posters have no idea what the latest Nokia Symbian belle system is like.If you imagine the best if Symbian, the best of Android and the best of iPhone and combine them together you have Nokia Symbian Belle. It is no longer clunky or difficult to use or learn.The addition of this new pureview camera technology would have to make the Nokia 808 a superb all round smartphone and travel camera, especially considering that the actual printed output even up to size A3 will match if not beat most cameras today including some SLR's. Consider that the lens opens at f2 right throughout it's entire zoom range which is greater than most serious SLR and 4/3 kit lenses and you can see just how serious this new low light technology is. I await the review of the photographic aspects of the Nokia 808 with intense interest because I can only imagine just how extra good a Windows Phone 8 Nokia will be with a Carl Zeiss PureView camera included.
that is the most ridiculous thing I have heard. Symbian is still the same. Its buggy, slow and choppy. It really misses the mark no doubt about it.
Scheinder Optics are pretty damn good.
Nikon is sure putting out product at a rapid Rate.. Is Canon Awake???
It just takes Fuji a wile to get going, like a year later on x100 and x10.. Great cameras no doubt, Just like their updates like the Af, a little slow and sluggish..
Good Work Oly..Unlike Fuji..... They actually listen and want to create the best product they can and further continue its development to satisfy those that own the 20 1.7
awesome. Sure hope the IQ is great. Was thinkung G1x but the f1.8 lens is perfect..
Its a nice addition to Lightroom 4. Been using it for a while now and quite enjoy how quick one can edit an image and share through various ports of social networking and so on and so forth.
Wow, some spectacular samples with beautiful bokeh.. well done Olympus.
Damn, M43's is just banging out High End Optics for their system. Im loving this new release. Fantastic Focal Length.
a big round of applause for Panny producing a solid fast zoom lense. MFT is getting more and more exciting.
Stanny1: Whoopee! Because of the 2x crop factor, you pay a fortune for only a 24mm equivalent. If that lens was on my Sony NEX-3, I would have my 18mm true wide angle. Wait. I have the Sony Wide-Angle adapter on my 16mm NEX-3 from the factory. So I got my 18mm for only $90.00! Nothing like having an APS-C sensor instead of the point and shoot sized one in the 4/3 system!
How many highend optics for your Nex can you get?
The gap has been bridged in IQ by MFT and surpassed by Optical superiory not to mention OMD does much better as an all around body then your NEX.
This is a great addition to the MFT lens lineup and makes the purchase of the OMD EM5 even better adding a fast zoom with weathersealing. NEX better start releasing some good lenses because Mft is really creating a beautiful and optically excellent lens array.
Now Sony is starting to look like the P&S with slow lenses and fugly cameras.
I thought the Pentax was ugly... Ladies and Gentlemen, we have a winnnnnnner
