Ultan: In-body stabilization with a wide range of movement that allows movements (tilt / swing / shift) for architectural use, rapid focal plane forward/back movement for focus stacking, astro-tracking, video frame-rates for multi-parameter stacking (e.g. high and low exposure for each of three focus shots for post-processing depth of field control and HDR , 6 shots in 1/10th sec.).
Advanced photon-counting sensor with flip-chip, thinned BSI, TSV, bonded to analog amp and digital preprocessor chip with an amp, memory buffer and preprocessor for each few thousand pixels, giving extremely fast readouts (and likely the ability to do other tricks.) Free-space (~1 -2 cm) optical sensor output and inductive power to sensor for internally wire-free sensor operation.
Mirrorless or semi -mirrorless design, (mostly transparent but retractable mirror design). Totally open, all-function remote control system. GPS / intertial tracker/ heading / elevation / auto time. Scr. tilt, HP jack, wifi, mono ver.
He also forgot the pen knife function, microwave and HD Freeview box, sofa, pizza delivery icon, beer dispencer.
blah blah blah... but will it blend?
BS feature!So what if a place, location or object has been photographed endlessly.We are, and it should remain, that EVERYONE is entitled to create a representation / 'memory capture' of any said subject for our own private (or even public) viewing enjoyment later on.Unless you want to live in a totalitarian state.Pure Sh*te!
And the price for Quad + 4k camera + lens + remote control and video receive = Another mortgage!
I know it's premium spec, but a launch price of over a GRAND for a point-n-shoot pocket cam!!!? Hmmmmmmm
This is my favourite portrait by her... Ellen Terryhttp://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/0/0e/Julia_Margaret_Cameron_(British,_born_India_-_Ellen_Terry_at_Age_Sixteen_-_Google_Art_Project.jpg
Does anyone know what camera(s) / lenses specifically Julia used?
I feel it makes a bit of a mockery of their 'flagship' bridge FZ1000, when they steal the sensor from it and bung it in a phone...
Seems i'm NOT the only one who thinks so either..http://www.techradar.com/news/phone-and-communications/mobile-phones/why-the-panasonic-lumix-dmc-cm1-is-a-bad-idea-1265639
LOL, This should win!!!
xoio: "Canon is claiming it has a pixel count equivalent to the number of photoreceptors in a human eye."
A BS publicity comment... But it has already been widely calculated that for an image sensor to be equivalent to a human eye, it will have to be around 576 Mega pixels. Granted not all is used at the same time though.
That's why i said at the end 'Granted not all is used at the same time though.' .... http://www.clarkvision.com/articles/eye-resolution.html

pixelcollector: Is the tripod socket made of plastic?
LOL, Bitchy! :-)
xoio: $899 = approx £530 at current exchange rate, even with a bank's creaming X percent onto that, it would still be sub £600. So where do they get the wallet raping £749 from?
Still feels like a raping!

4K through a pinhole lens....... ;-)
Clever but it is actually nauseating to watch...
worth a grand?
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.
You can probably play angry birds on it too. LOL
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!
ANOTHER viewfinder-less Wave it about like a phone camera!! Getting sick & tired of this trend. - It's crap & makes for rubbish photography.
