Congrats Samsung, even your Galaxy "Vario" has a faster zoom than the X-Vario...

On Leica announces X Vario zoom compact with APS-C sensor article (757 comments in total)

Hopefully, the X3 gonna be a great camera with the X-Vario "fast and precise autofocus to offer even the most demanding photographers maximum creative freedom for spontaneous shots as well as for carefully arranged compositions" and its "920k dot 3" LCD"...

Be patient, the X-Vario is just the X3 teaser...

Thanks for your votes.

The answer had been found previously, it's a view of the interior of the gigantic hotel Burj al Arab in Dubai (rotated 90°). Its atrium, the tallest of the world (180m high), shows the craziest ornamentation.

Liamvasik: Best photo for this challenge, but doesn't comply with all the rules. In my opinion the Post-procesing intervention is quite apreciable. Apart from that 5 STARS for a Post-procesing allowed challenge!

:)

Which post-processing was done according to you?

It's a pity to read all these critics only based on the specifics. If the interest of a camera was based on those facts, what could be said about a M9?

Once a deep review will reveal the amazing IQ provided by an expert-like-controllable-pocketable camera,I hope we'll laugh at this wave of grumpy photographers.

And if this first shot from Nikon is not the perfect tool, we can see clearly that the whole market is on the way we all wish: an affordable "reflex IQ" in your pocket. Just a matter of -short- time. So why complaining that much?

On Roundup: Enthusiast Zoom Compact Cameras article (421 comments in total)

Hi,

I own a Fuji XF1 since 2 month and I'm not disappointed at all.
I usually shoot with reflex (D90, D5100) and one year ago I decided to buy something "more" pocketable, so at that time, I went for a P7100 which was a serious compact (not really pocketable but more purse-able). Problem: IMHO the color rendering is not satisfactory, so I use it only in B&W and it's doing really good in monochrome!
So, I was still looking for a good compact. When I saw the XF1 that was love at first sight: classic design, manual zoom, 12 MP CMOS sensor.It had to be mine. And I'm not disappointed: colors are great, dynamic range is outstanding with the EXR mode and even at 6MP you can have big enough photos on your monitor or on paper. The opening of the lens is a bit fiddly, but you get rapidly accustomed to and really enjoy this lovely camera.
