Ken Rockwell says it's the best compact camera ever! Weeeee . . .
This is a birders camera! Oops, I mean this camera is for the birds!
Dear Canon, please check out the NX1 and see what Samsung did over the last 7 months.
Valiant Thor: "Enthusiast photographers have been waiting in agony for a replacement to the Canon EOS 7D for five years."
Their agony must have turned to hopelessness, despair, depression, and maybe anger when they learned what Canon came up with for those five lost years.
"Unless you are an actual photograher."
I'm not sure what an actual "photograher" is but consider the original post directed more towards the non-actual, un-actual, or self-actualized photographer.
"Enthusiast photographers have been waiting in agony for a replacement to the Canon EOS 7D for five years."
Jogger: "There is also a new M8 co-processor which is coupled with a barometer and allows for accurate tracking of changes in elevation. "
And this is critical for phones because???
It's not critical, just a nice addition.
nopicleftbehind: I am glad I already have my s5.
We're all so glad that you're glad.
intruder61: Samsung still stays on top.
The top of what?
Wow, for that price it should be made out of upsidaisium to prevent dropping along with the pre-famulated amulite lens coating.
As I observe people and society I am 100% convinced that the smartphone is the worst invention in the history of the world, bare NONE. It has turned a once observant and interactive society into pathetic, electronic addicted, anti-social zombies who walk around with their glazed empty eyes affixed to those crappy little LCD boxes glued to their hand, their thumb frantically pushing stupid little chicklets around the screen with the look of a meth addict on their face and mortal fear in their mind that they would accidently miss one non-essential, meaningless message from an emotionless fellow zombie that is doing the same thing. What used to be meaningful family social outings have turned into four people sitting at a table lifelessly and listlessly staring hypnotically at the endless supply of meaningless pixel propaganda which never leaves their hand. Other than that, nice phone!
Neodp: "We" are not Window users. "We" are not OS-X users.
Dear manufacturers please check your "facts". We are many.
It's OK though...
If you don't care. "We" don't care.
The only way you could say less would be to write more.
Nice rig for that trip to the park with the dog or that occasional selfie. At first I thought it was an Andromedian Photon Cannon with the optional plasmatic de-neutralizer.
papa natas: General Motors should be more concerned about the mishaps on their products other than creating spectacular ads.Of course we know that this camera surpasses the regular use that amateurs with money give to it.Of course we know that those guys who shot the ad didn't buy it. They rented it.
Considering the number of cars that GM has made over the years compared to the number of problem vehicles, the defects represent a very tiny percentage of the total, yet many people such as papas here always dwell on the negative as they are programmed to do by news media who specialize in exaggeration.
Now waiting for the D750.
roperv: Purchased the Olympus TG 3 on Friday and returning it on Tuesday. Very disappointed. I gave it a quick test (video & pix) around the house and it seemed to be working perfectly. Used it again that evening and it had trouble focusing quickly, maintaining focus, or not focusing at all. This applied to pix and video. Tried it again the following day and it seems to be "almost" in focus. Using the video in a quiet situation and you record the motorized zoom. I have a TG 830 that has worked perfectly, in and out of the water. Maybe this was just a defective device but I think I'll look long and hard before making my next purchase. By-the-way, your reviews are great, They are very useful in my decision making.
It could be too that maybe your home and family actually went out of focus that evening and never recovered. It happens.
Obviously the fault of the Fujifilm camera. If he would have had a Nikon, Olympus, or Lumix, it never would have happened. Live and learn I guess.
I'm speechless . . .
Valiant Thor: Wow, I'm glad I read the article. At first I thought they were White House Press Release photos.
Your racism certainly came through loud and clear. Obviously its a favorite word you carry in your bag of tricks and scan internet blogs looking for opportunities to deploy it.

They roam the malls dressed in jackass attire of distasteful, offensive, or sports related t-shirts, baggy silk exercise pants, bright Nike clown shoes, tattoos, and all the while radiating themselves with dangerous levels of packet-data microwave energy. The corporate illuminati puppet-masters must be laughing their billionaire butts off. Other than that, nice phone!
Everyone: Thank you for the comments. My rant would have been more complete however I ran out of characters. Quick reply to the more shallow thinking repliers.
Yes, I have a cell phone. A Samsung flip phone (pay as you go) that is off most of the time and used only for essential communication. When I need to speak with friends and family, I mostly use the wired Polycom speaker phone in my office.
Do I have friends? Yes, I'm not a social outcast but a semi-retired pilot of 33 years with hundreds of fellow aviation acquaintances worldwide. I just don't need to know what isle at Wal-Mart those friends are shopping on every moment of the day.
Yes, it did happen with television, I agree. TV is the ultimate tool for controlling the thinking and opinions of the sheeple. Cell phones are a big second as the primary data mining tool for tracking, recording, storing, and monitoring the herd.
Once again, thank you all for the interesting comments.
