My quest is to create an image worthy of hanging on my living room wall.
I would buy it in a heartbeat! I would love to have a digital back on either my F or F3HP.
Great. It would have been nice to see Kodak R.I.P. with dignity. Instead, we will now most likely have to witness Apple and Google turn the Kodak name into a mediocre teenage social media novelty. How sad.
Any info on body construction, weather sealing and shutter life expectancy?
Nice camera, nice features, but why would I spend that much money when I can get a Leica X2 for less? Lower the price and I will consider it.
snegron: Looks like big corporations won at last; film is dead. Now we have no choice but to use digital 100% of the time. I'm sure the higher ups at Kodak knew this way in advance and more than likely had some back door deals with other investors. Thanks a lot Kodak.
Francis, you are probably not old enough to remember what using film was like, so I wouldn't be too quick to make all-encompassing generalizations if I were you. If film is not dead,then where are all the film labs? How many new film cameras are available today? When was the last time a camera manufacturing company came out with a new film camera? Please do at least little bit of research before you post immature comments.

I stared at the sky last night for about 45 minutes. I didn't see any meteors. Neck cramped. Went back inside.
A blurry, sepia picture with no detail. Nice. Definitely worth a billion dollars...
Ok, seriously? While I am a long-time Nikon fan, I have to admit this "Public Best Camera Award" is the most absurd thing I have heard in awhile. How can people vote on a camera they haven't even used yet?!? This is just another way to produce extra hype for a camera so that it sells better when it finally becomes available to the public.
So, who is this camera aimed for? What is the target audience? Cool wireless technology alone doesn't guarantee high quality images.
CAcreeks: In the USA, the TS3 has compass and barometer/altimeter (same mechanism). Just verified with a friend who has one. So the writeup above is wrong. The TS4 seems to have nothing new except panorama mode, which is an extremely useful feature.
I have "Panorama" mode on my TS3; it let's you select images at 16x9 ratio.
I have the TS1 and the TS3. I love these little cameras! And yes, they are as tough as they say they are.
Looks like a desperate effort on behalf of Olympus to clean up its name after their recent financial scandal. I was disappointed with the EPL2 to the point that I have stayed away from other Olympus products. This new camera is going to have to be spectacular for me to trust Olympus again.
Looks really cool!
I like the concept (way over my budget though). I wish there were companies who would offer optional covers for our existing cameras.
None of this would be happening had Nikon re-introduced their "S" series rangefinders in digital versions (like Leica with their M8) like most of us asked them to.
I am happy (though not surprised) to see that the TS3 came up first in all categories. I love my TS3! I still have my old TS1, but the TS3 is my new favorite. In addition to its waterproof capabilities and cool new features, what I like most is how quick it responds. I think Panasonic should take advantage of this momentum to focus on creating even more advanced waterproof cameras.
