Looks Ok. But nothing special. S120 is a tiny upgrade in my opinion.
tkbslc: Very cool. I may pick one up for my 8 year old.
I think that slightly older kids will appreciate this camera more because they have more intelligence. This camera would be perfect for kids aged of 13-14 years old.
I think that this camera could be too fragile for your 8 year old :)
I think the meme "Shut up and take my money" is appropriate for this announcement :)
I'd rather have physical controls rather than a big touch screen. Just saying.
Interesting camera, but sooooo much overpriced. 1100 euro is just too much.
20 Millions pixels of a mushy mess behind a crappy lens :)
I don't seen any improvement compared to the last year's models :(
People were joking about the Pentax Q and saying that it looked like a toy. Well.... instead of making it look more serious they made it look exactly like a toy. Especially the orange one :-))))
It's good to see the name and the KODAK logo alive and on a digital camera again. I kinda missed it.
fuxicek: I just broke my 2 year old Canon A3300 and wish Canon A3500 would be better, but I miss the mode dial, but hey, I have a dedicated movie button, the aperture is worse F2.8 - F6.9 vs F2.8 - F5.9 in A3300, but I have wi-fi now and eco mode, that enables me to achieve the battery life as long as it was on the older model, everything else is the same...Would you call it progress?

If I were you I would bought some used old canon point-and shoot. You'll save money and get a better camera.
peevee1: Not a single camera worth existing here... Simply nothing is better in any sense than what has been done before.
Amen to that. Usually in this part of the year manufactures release some exciting new cameras, but not this year.
MirosIav: Wow, all downgrades :(.
Ah well.... Don't know what to say. I don't understand the digital camera market anymore. Things were so simple few years ago. Now it seems everyone releases cameras as they fit, and sometimes manufactures make some silly decisions.
Martin87: Continuous mode 1FPS on the TF1. I haven't seen so slow continuous mode since 2001 :))))))))))))
Sorry I haven't checked that out, but you were right. 0.8 fps - outrageous. My 100$ point and shoot from 2006 has even more than that (1.5fps to be exact)
They are not downgrades because they are all cheaper and targeted to different kind of people. The ones that don't have thousands of dollars to spend on a digital camera.
Continuous mode 1FPS on the TF1. I haven't seen so slow continuous mode since 2001 :))))))))))))
mpgxsvcd: Since when is F6.9 in a very small sensor camera a good idea?
Who needs a wide aperture when you can increase the ISO as much as you want in today's compact cameras :-D
It looks funny. Like a toy intended for children younger than 5 y.o.
Cy Cheze: Here's a pitch for the underdog LX7:
The control ring is limited to aperture selection, but it has dedicated wheels for shutter and ND filter. Each ratchets precisely. The RX100 ring lurches about. The LX7 offers time lapse, which the others do not. Its aperture is fastest across the full zoom range. One can suppress digital zoom in video, which one cannot with the Sony. Plus, it is intermitently offered at a $299 price, which is hard to beat. Can the RX100 be worth more than twice that? It too will sell for less when the RX200 (or the Samsung KX100!) draw nigh. But people who elect to spend more money, or get a tatoo, find ingenious ways to be cheerful they did.
Topstuff is right. I own the RX100 and the image quality is indeed better than the Nikon D300.
