save your money for Nokia Lumia 1020 :-) It is ultra-portable.

On article Nokia launches 41MP Lumia 1020 for Windows Phone 8 (131 comments in total)

Nokia is fast alienating itself from the most serious camera or smartphone users, by providing this technology in "Windows only" phones. After 808 launch, people had some hope of seeing the sensor+optics on Android (at the very least). Too bad ain't gonna happen.

AbrasiveReducer: I can see a future Nikon with SLRs and phones. They have the name recognition and product placement down. I rarely see anybody with a Nikon point and shoot, so why fight for a bigger share of something that's going away?

BTW, in the second line that's supposed to be "manufacturers".

Interestingly I find so many tourists with Nikon coolpix cameras (black strap with white Nikon) whenever I go out on vacations :-)

On article Olympus TG-2 iHS (106 comments in total)

somehow I always felt that Olympus PnS shots are very good in color/contrast/sharpness. I never owned one but compared them with my Nikons and Canons. Always up a notch. Apart from extremely low light photo samples, the daylight shots are great. Hikers will enjoy this cam IMHO...

techmine: where is that guy who says Samsung copies everything?? :-)

Yeah this obsolete android OS will be on every camera in few years. EBay will be your best friend then.

CyberAngel: OK, now I want an attachable lens on the Nokia 808 sensor size (1/1.2")
Even a 5xZoom would do if the lens is fast...
but this...this...is...a...good start...
<I made it - without a negative comment>

I was waiting for that phone. Nokia, are you listening? Too bad you will be soon sucked into by Microsoft who will forever waste your camera progress/prowess by release it in Windows only phones....

Thinking of getting it while Symbian version lasts.

Neloy Sinha: I am happy that I can express my ideas about Samsung Galaxy Camera phone in this forum.No doubt it is an object I would desire.But I know that I have to be patient and determined to have it at a later date, when the initial craze will be over.There are many phones but Samsung always brings something very special.They thing for the consumers and the demand of the day. I believe this camera phone will be a real camera for many in 2014. Its improved versions will grab attention of present generation.Many camera companies have to tie up with mobile vendors for the matter of survival. If they have to remain afloat they have to sandwich "Camera+Phone" by any means or on any platform.Those who need DSLR will be different category of people.And this phone is going to give a big bite on apple.If my pocket does not pinch then there is no question of choice. At present there is not a second in the market.So Thanks to Samsung for their ambitious, innovative, research and production strategies.

and you must be from all exclusive iWorld, isn't it? do some research...

We will see a lot more activity in this area. Google's acquisition of Nik will bring cloud solutions to every day users and hobbyists. Hope Google simplifies the workflow and integrates well with other services like Google drive.

techmine: $900 lens for any system should definitely be backed by solid market research. So Nikon's research showed that there is a need to build a fast portrait lens for Nikon 1 system?? I think they just got carried away by the success of 18.5mm f1.8 lens. They don't have "value for money" dimension working.

The kind of success Sony has seen in MILC market is unprecedented, yet their lens lineup is nowhere close to Nikon 1's (even minus this one). Lens ecosystem alright but don't tell me that Nikon is going to develop a 1-lens equivalent for every D&G lens that they have for traditional DSLRs.
Interestingly, Nikon seems very serious about this system that hasn't gone anywhere in terms of market cap or general interest.
PS: I am a NikonV1 owner which I like :-)

Well thanks to Olympus for not breaking my bank. This camera indeed is expensive viz-a-viz the feature set. Next will be omd-6 with wifi and around $300 more than this to build a pseudo range.

In reply to:

dickg1: If Panasonic thinks this camera is going to seriously compete with the Canon S110 in attracting the "enthusiast" crowd, they screwed up big time!

In my mind, the feature that sets the Canon S110 apart from the majority of its peers is a 24mm wide end.

I recently sold my S95 and bought the S110 for just that reason. I'd much rather give up a 200mm long end to get a 24mm wide angle. The difference between 24mm & 28mm is much greater than the diffeence between 120mm and 200mm.

dickg1

$500 vs $335 for S110 that has a touch screen. No EVF but lets see how tiny(big) it would be on the Panny. Am I the only one looking for more pictures in this press release?
