Tom Goodman: Since first releasing this camera a few years ago this is the fourth iteration. There have been several improvements of note. however, the price has jumped nearly 100%. That's not just progress. that's greed.
I believe an earlier version of this article noted a price range up to $1300. I misread that statement. This range includes the RX100 IV and another camera. I can do the math, but apparently reading is another matter.

Are the signatures square or rectangular?
My life is now complete
When I look at a photograph I admire the only thing that NEVER occurs to me is what camera was used.
h2k: ""We sometimes run out of things to take pictures of"---And so?
If i run out of things to take pictures of, i don't take pictures. It always baffles me how photography magazines press their readers to photograph this and this and this - i photograph what inspires me and otherwise, let the camera rest.
The unwritten motto of digital photography has long been "How can you NOT take the picture?"
Nicely done. Eminently forgettable.
Upon receiving a new camera these days, from any manufacturer, I rigorously test it not to determine its capabilities but to discover its manufacturing flaws.
Tom Goodman: I could not help notice the camera body sells for $1300 and the "kit" lens for $1500. Yikes.
Well, that sets me straight. I put "kit" in parentheses because I knew it was not a kit lens in the strictest sense but the one recommended for this camera, presumably by Samsung. As for the second battery, charger and grip, well those are usually very low cost throw-ins from Amazon, Adorama, etc. It's still a $2800 experience to buy this camera, which isn't cheap for any camera, especially one that isn't full frame.

If I put my mirrored camera in one of these bags will it develop an identity crisis?
RGBCMYK: I wish everyone new their photo history. They are copywork. Niépce was into lithography like everyone else at the time and when his son who was marking his stones went off to fight in a foreign war he turned to the camera obscure to make the marks on his stones.
It would be helpful if YOU knew your history, too. These images were "drawn by light", which is the point of the article, and not the nature of the subject matter.
Tom Goodman: 145 comments and counting and most of them are about what is wrong with Nikon's management and strategies.
Just don't buy their cameras if you feel that way and get a Canon, Sony, Olympus or something else, but why post about what Nikon fails to do for you? I guess it must be the urge to let the public know you are smarter than the folks at Nikon and by George you're gonna' let the poor slobs know it.

Elmos: Wow.. so much hostility against the UK. What is being proposed doesn't seem unreasonable to me. Nothing is being destroyed or hidden or faked. The images were made in the UK by someone living in the UK and are now considered culturally valuable what is the issue here ? do we have too much time on our hands folks ?
And indeed almost every country now has similar prohibitions in place to protect national patrimony precisely because of the history of plunder...and not just by Great Britain. It would be useful if the axe grinders trolling here knew their history, past and present, but. then, why let the facts get in the way of a little anonymous internet breast beating!!

It would more than stretch credulity to imagine Adobe responded to the original outbursts here when CC was announced

Megapixels are to great images what keyboards are to great literature.
