How about looking up and down since it is meant for VR recording?

Wye Photography: I think I prefer the AGFA Syncho box camera (I have one somewhere - almost forgot about that).

Here are the "advantages" of the AFGA

1) Mine cost £1 on the bay of e
2) Don't have to worry about focus - no focus, its fixed.
3) Only two apertures from which to choose.
4) Built in Yellow filter.
5) out Holgas a Holga
6) out instagrams instagram
7) No need to worry about shutter speed, there's only one.
8) No contract needed.
9) No one would want to steel it.
10) Don't have to worry about IQ, it's just crap.
11) You look less of a prat using one than using a tablet.
12) Can't see, no worries, neither can the AGFA.

No, seriously, although I don't like Android the IQ of the S5 looks pretty good.

I buy junk and sell antiques. Some fools sell, some fools buy!

AbrasiveReducer: If this could be adapted to an electric car battery it would be really be something.

May be with a laser guided lightning strike the car would be fully charged in a split of a second!

Samsung S4 battery is 2600mAh. To fully charge it in 26 seconds the minimum charging current would be 360A regardless of material used. 360A is more than a typical current draw when cranking a car. The cable used has to be at least the size of car battery cable, which gets hot when cranking for too long. A typical USB cable would evaporate in a split of a second! If the charging voltage is 5 volts you would need a 1.8KW (360A*5V) charger! Current S4 charger is about 10W!

techmine: Sorry Samsung get ready to be sued by Apple because the color of the camera is white and the font of the brand name closely resembles that of Apple :-) sorry to bring it up but I am tired of listening that Samsung is a big copy cat.

Nice looking camera/device.

It was a good thing that iPhone does not use removable battery and storage cards. Otherwise all the cameras would be banned from being sold in the US!

Is this the beginning of the end of Wacom?

Only if they would make such functionaries available on high quality cameras. Hopefully someday cameras would be made to allow loading of 3rd party apps. The potential would be endless if enough cameras are made to run on some common OS, such as modified Android or the likes.

I'm thinking that if Apple were to come up with some higher end Apple cameras that allow such apps, the camera manufacturers would have no choice but to follow suit. Hopefully someone else (Samsung/Google?) would take the lead for a change.
