tkbslc: This is an exciting concept at about $800. At $1500, I don't think it is going to have many takers.
More like $500
Does Samsung still make cameras?...LOL, they should stick to washing machines and phones
Tap0: Every six months I change the mount...
Every six months they change their mount, do you relize how stupid you sound? at least they are doing something, if it was not for them you would still pay more for less from your nice friends at Nikon and Canon, I say let them push the market it only benefit us all.What is Nikon doing? going back to the past with a shiny turd that makes Nikon sheep forget how bad the D600 was, yes that is how you do it, smoke and mirrors...LOLThis Sony has no lenses is getting old, you can put any lens on E mount even those so called excellent Nikon and Canon junk
Allochka Emiliana: Nikon got worried about Sony A7 and A7r that they released this rumor in a hurry!
I agree all Nikon did is take a D600 and put a fancy shell on it ;)3 years R&D are you joking?
Jake64: Can someone clarify just what makes this camera so special other than the fact it looks like it's 40 years old? This is a serious question.
It does not look all that old, Sony made this camera back in 2009 the A900
Boerseuntjie: Look a D610 with retarded shell and no Video....LOL is it just me or does it look like a Sony A900http://theonlinephotographer.typepad.com/the_online_photographer/2008/09/sony-a900-is-of.html
Why would I be jealous I already own a camera that does not shoot video the Sony A900...LOL and wait for it,.... It has the same sensor as this camera...LOL

Elikan: Before reading the article I looked at the pictures and in my taste the samsung pictures were the most pleasing . What I liked most in the Samsung was its natural colors. Usually I discard pictures where the colors are not right. I guess that most smartphone users also value correct colors. Smartphone pictures are rarely enlarged to a size where the weaknesses of the Samsung camera described in the article matter.A possible explanation for Samsung's caring for the colors, is that of all the g four compared makes, Samsung is the only one that manufactures cameras
Do you realize how stupid you sound? Samsung fanboy
Najinsky: Shutter speed too low, or shutter shock?
I like what I see, I was hoping to dust off my Minolta MD and Voigtländer M lenses and use them on this camera, lets hope they work.
chlamchowder: Looks ok, although it seems like some detail is lost to noise reduction even in the base ISO shots. Moving up the ISO scale, it still seems like the JPG engine should be doing a better job (because modern full frame sensors are so good that anything below ISO 800 is basically considered low).
It would be more interesting to look at processed raw files without noise reduction applied.

The Scurvy Dog of PR: Didn't I read that Sony was getting out of the Cell Phone biz?
So Panasonic makes Cell phones that is news to me
lazy lightning: Still just the same flat, lifeless images as all m4/3 cameras. No separation (not talking bokeh), everything in the image appears to be on the same plane giving the impression of a one dimensional universe. Lovely colors though!
+1 I must be a troll
Fake but don't count it out there will be one soon
Boerseuntjie: There is just two things that is keeping me from getting these camera's and it's big deal for me, no silent shutter mode and IBIS, I will praise Sony for their engineering and these cameras look amazing but I will stick with NEX-6 for now.If these cameras had IBIS they would have been killer.
Hey idiots I did not say the NEX-6 has IBIS or silent shutter and for that reason I do not see the benefit of getting these new cameras and selling my NEX-6.The full frame is what I was looking for but IBIS would have made it a game changer in my mind

Abaregi: Well done Sony.For such a short time in the camera business they keep pushing out innovative stuff. Hopefully this might push Canon and Nikon to do something exiting.
Sony has been in the camera business for over 33 years now not a short time at all
What was wrong with the D600 it was a well oiled machine ;)
"Braking news" New shutter because the old one was spewing oil ;(
Alex Permit: For me, a "satisfying photographic experience" is taking photos and then being satisfied with the results when i look and/or print them at home.
The images i get from my rx100 ii are satisfying, while those from my previous powershots/Lumix/ et al are not. I know of no other POCKETABLE camera that gives pictures which satisfy but for the rx 100.
DPR's objective tests back up my subjective views.
The "user experience" of the rx 100 does not match my x100s, or even my nex 6. Those cameras, however, don't fit in my pants pocket. Neither does my D3s. So what. Each camera size class fits a purpose.
The rx100 is, imho, a clear gold star.
WW2 Design... LOL, well WW2 gave us the "A" bomb and the RX100 is the" Bomb" Who cares if it's silver?, I think it should be Uranium with a Atomic clow@Boky you must be wearing hot pants ;)
