On Sony DSC-RX10 preview (725 comments in total)

A THOUSAND Pound Bridge Cam - Yeah Right!!... And 8.3x Zoom is hardly 'mega-zoom' as described.
However the return of the quick glance top LCD is a nice touch... A feature that USED to be standard on ALL earlier cams, even point & shoots, before manufacturers started dumbing down features like this & fobbing them off as 'premium' only to be found on mid-range DSLRs.

Martin Datzinger: The camera is nice and dandy and probably so is the phone itself. But then you have to deal with WP8 ...

What a FAIL comment!
WP8 is refreshing, stable & different from the isheep, A-clone masses. MS actually got it very right with this OS!

roy5051: Why don't Fujifilm, and the rest, improve on the dinosaur technology that is the 200,000 dot EVF?

They have in fact gone backwards, I used to own a Canon Pro1, what is now a 9 year old camera & its EVF & back screen were both 230K+ resolution .. over 30,000 more! .. Worse still, the Minolta A2, had a 900K+ EVF - NINE YEARS ago!, and we're only seeing these kind of displays in the last couple of years. BOTH cameras also had top panel quick ref LCDs, something that you only find on mid-range & above DSLRs now. Apart from the pixel count & zoom race, other features that used to be there are being removed and DUMBED DOWN!. Hell they are even removing EVFs on P&S cams now, thus forcing you to wave your cam around in front of your face like a soppy iphone!

Getting sick & tired of the current trend of cameras loosing their EVF/OVFs ..
Then bullsh*tting the public into thinking that the above is a 'Premium' feature now, when it has ALWAYS been & SHOULD always remain a FUNDAMENTAL component of a CAMERA!
- That's right .. camera.. NOT a wave it about in front of your face iphone!

In reply to:

xoio: More crappy 'wave the camera around - Iphone Style' rubbish.

No, I'm a user who's had digital cameras for over 10 years, & in that time seen the feature set get dumber & dumber. Bye bye top info LCDs (now only on mid-top level DSLRs), bye bye bulb mode (now only on DSLRs), plus a host of other features. Bye Bye flash. Now bye bye EVFs/OVFs.
Most of the other EVS-less cams have a fixed back lcd, thus you'll be waving them around in front of your face like a phone. - This is NOT how I want to take photos. And yet if all other cameras makers follow suit, that's what I, and all other users who take their photography even half seriously, will be FORCED to do!
NO THANKS!
OVFs & more recently EVFs were created and EXIST for a reason! Which includes bracing the camera in a way that includes using your eyebrow and arms locked in close to steady a shot.
Holding a camera in front of you - iphone style, makes it IMPOSSIBLE to take a steady shot, especially in low light (slow shutter speeds) or zooming in!
Now go crawl back into YOUR cave.

On Pentax announces X-5 DSLR-like 26x zoom 16MP CMOS superzoom news story (408 comments in total)

Alas it's only redeeming feature is that it is dirt cheap.
It is clearly a thrown together 'me too' bridge cam, with no innovation .. a 230k EVF? come on! - I suppose though, as least it still HAS an EVF, when compared to the current trend of omitting them, thus turning the other cameras into a wavy-iPhone.
With a function & feature list that is mediocre at best. - NO Hot shoe!!?
You can tell this is Pentax saying... yeah, i suppose we can enter the bridge cam sector too, but mustn't in any way make a cam that would loose us a DSLR sale in favour of it.
Therefore ... why bother making this cam really, when it doesn't stack up against any of the other current bridge cams.
16MP in a pinhead low grade CMOS!?, you just know the image quality is going to be toot!
