mauijohn: I'm ready to sell my canon s100 for this one no regrets. Samsung really sets a new standard for this category of camera. Anything less..will just gather dust in the shelf. Bye bye canon.
....as simple as that. I bet canon and nikon now is going back to their drawing boards to revised everthing to what they started to come up with a better compact camera than this one but...its to late.
I'm not a contractor or a samsung employee, but I know how to read specs and history that even iphone got edgy about samsung products on their phones. This is about competition that if you fail to renovate your products you also fail to deliver.
klopus: Why do they all produce new compacts, anybody still buys them?
Oh yes we do buy compacts and this one blows away it's competitions such as canon, nikon, and other camera manufacturers.

Mele kalikimaka!!! To all dpreview staffs for their hard works.
They are the best looking lures.
chj: Just got the GM1 and 20mm f/1.7. LOVE IT. Anyone asking for a viewfinder or hotshoe is really missing the point. It's SO small and easy to carry around. The touchscreen and fast autofocus is an awesome combination. You can catch so many shots that you would have missed with another camera. For street shooting, it's just about ideal (weather sealing would make it ideal). My only complaint is mentioned in the review, you have to be careful when turning the control dial so you don't accidently press it and bring up a different setting adjustment.
It still bulky for my levis jean's pocket and not as compact as the s100 canon camera and priced way too high.
I'll pass on this one. Price too high for me. I'll wait for the GM0.
There are two of them in the desert. about 4 miles west along the side of that road.
$1650.00 camera included..
Five hours between charges..not much for air travelers...repair expenses could be 10 times more than the other laptop. so what makes the Mucousoft Surface Pro tick? nothing. except the price.... its a tick bite.
.....and also make the LCD tilt and can make phone calls... that will be a perfect single device to carry around as a phone, a zoom camera and a music player. its bulky but that's okey... i'll buy it.
If only they incorporate a phone capability on it.. it would be a perfect to carry alone device for a phone, camera, and also a music player....i hope they will someday and i will buy it and sell my canon S100.
me_tarzan: Why, OH WHY, don't they offer a phone capability? - How much harder could it have been?
@me tarzan.. sorry i have to take back my comments... it doesn't have phone capability. and you are right... and i am wrong and i'm very sorry for that.
it is a phone.. with camera.. read it again once more and one more time.
we got to understand his concept that he is not like others that counting pixels by pixels. but by the people caught off guard by unknowingly someone took picture at them.
I'll wait for the tilt or flip up version of this camera to buy it.
brianj: Interesting, it has the same size and type of sensor at the canon SX260HS, yet has not got as wide angle nor anywhere near as much zoom. Ah, I see, its called enthusiast because it sports a f1.8 aperture lens.
I wondered what the name 'enthusiast' meant!
@chadle_chad: yeah right...
I thought compact camera is dying prety soon as Mr Terada of Olympus says. but heres another compact camera from their very own company.
