A better camera would have been FZ200 with manual zoom and a larger sensor so nice try Pany. We don't need another turtle popping its head out.
Ok anyone gonna bet that DPR will be rushing to review this toyzoom in a day or two?
madeinlisboa: I have a better one: don't use a smartphone!
And just a buy a sub 50$ camera.
jcmarfilph: I've always wondered why DPR is always rushing in to review a camera from either Sony, Canon, Nikon and Panasonic? Just imagine, they announced the product and then a day or two DPR has a review/samples right away. =D
For Fuji, sorry you have to wait 6 mos to 1 year.
I don't think so. Fuji can send even pre-prod sample to some reviewers. One folk at FTF received a sample (not just one but two different models) for review just after making a call to them. I think there is something big going on why DPR almost never review a Fuji camera.
Just imagine, no review at all for HS20, HS30, HS50 and even X-S1. I don't think time or resource is problem coz DPR is wasting hours reviewing worthless camera phones and tablets an even plastic accessories and lousy filtering apps.
Something is going on and it must be under the table or inside a drawer. =D

joe6pack: As far as viewing 3D video, you can get a scope for just $7 and it is available now.
Now for taking pictures and video in 3D, that's where it shines. I would like to see some real samples.
I cannot seem to find any real samples in their webpage. How come???
Also, without the viewer, I suppose the device can be a lot smaller. It does not seem like it is possible.
Just another gimmick IMHO. As stated above you can buy a cheaper alternative. There is also a phone with 3D viewing capability like 2-3 years ago.
I'd rather carry my travelzoom cam. Miles better than a mediocre camera phone with useless accessories. And oh its pocketable, how about the iPhone with 5 lbs of useless accessories, will they fit inside your pocket? No? Will carry a bag for those? I'd rather bring my bridge camera then.

Lol what a joke. People buying app for a trying-card mediocre camera are just wasting money and effort. Just buy a real pocketable digital camera so your photographic experience will go up to 5 notches higher. If you want to make it look like camera and experience real camera controls, buy a real camera with real camera controls.
Ok time to review the Fuji superzooms. I have seen so many turtlezoom reviews from competitors in the past 4 years. Some even just less than a month after release. So many wasted hours reviewing worthless iPhones I mean smartphones and tablets and plastic accessories.
I think Samsungraphy sounds a lot better and pleasing than iPonography. =D
Die in envy iT@rds. =D
For the love of Photography, stop creating non-sense accessories. Just bring a decent P&S camera and keep your iPhone for phone calls and texting.
Seriously? Credit goes to overdone filters and PP to mask mediocrity of these images.
Just buy a decent travelzoom cam. Smartphone's IQ is worthless (with the exception from Nokia 808)
Benarm: Why scare people away with that big ugly DSLR? You don't need camera that big to be better than a smartphone. A mirrorless camera will do, plus more. Even premium compact like RX100 can run circles around smartphones, while still being pocketable.
You don't need high-end compacts either. A 50$ camera will do the job just fine and even better than a rectangular brick camera phone.
This is what Apple should be doing if they are really serious about making iPhone a camera phone and not a crappy OS update with lousy apps on it.
Mobile photography does not necessarily mean you have to make your life miserable by forcing yourself to use a mediocre smartphone and make it to act and look like a real camera. Epic fail!
Buy a 100$ pocket travelzoom cam. No need to DIY, no need to buy plasticky accessories. Transfer it to your internet enabled phone or notebook with wifi or card reader and upload the pictures from there if uploading a picture right away is more important than anything else.
Meh... I'd rather see a hardware upgrade on the phone itself.
- Larger sensor and brighter lens to make the IQ above average and not mediocre- Stabilization means better handling and design. If it is still a rectangular brick then forget about it.- Optical zoom- Plain and simple apps, no lousy filters whatsoever.
Oh wait, I'd rather buy a real P&S camera. Wait a minute or less to upload it to my laptop and PP and upload it to web. =D
krikman: Why not just to tell us how many produced and how many sold?
Apple is spanked by Samsung in sales so they have to find a way to tell the story differently.
