There's no dramatic difference of those picture to my canon s100 camera's picture. Only the price and the people promoting it paid by sony corp.

That's the hardest part of their job without getting axed.

mauijohn: My canon s100 zoom lens stuck to extended position and won't go back anymore. It's now RIP.
But my iPhone 5s took more pictures than my canon 5s and still kicking like new attacked to my backpack strap and with a remote I could take many pictures remotely and discreetly while walking and biking.

Attached instead of attacked

In reply to:

qaz111111: The photos this camera produces are excellent. I use it as a PS but underwater the viewfinder is completely useless, as in you cannot see it at all. You aim in the direction of what you want and hope you get something later. I am never disappointed with the picture quality but underwater it is a different animal to work with. To understand the viewfinder problem think of trying to look at the nav screen in your car with polarized sunglasses; you can't see it and the camera had the same problem underwater.

I'm sorry to disappoint you more, for this camera has no viewfinder.

Accidents happens more to photographers than anyone. Case point:
I was assign to take pictures to our group of divers somewhere in Pacific south of Guam Island and we've just been about less than 30 minutes underwater at 60 ft. and i was run out of air and my buddies are too far for help. I manage to swimp up at the surface without decompressing. Fortunately i'm fine. It's because there's not much compressed air inside my lungs to explode or to expand dangerously as i ascend to the surface at the speed not more than the speed of the bubbles that comming out from my mouth constantly.
I move a lot taking pictures on the shipwreck on different angles that time and thats probably the reason why i ran out of air faster than my buddies.

Why not?

In reply to:

simpleshot: You don't need an atomic bomb to kill that many.

The Japanese slaughtered a total of 30 million people in Asia during WW2.

They would do massacres in a single city in hundreds of thousands. Most of the massacres occurred in China - 23 million civilians. In Nanking city alone, 300,000 were massacred. In the majority of the killings, people were slashed with bayonets and left to bleed to death.

http://www.lrb.co.uk/v25/n22/chalmers-johnson/the-looting-of-asia

You add to that of about 400,000 very young sex slaves women they round up from other asian countries such as the philippines, indonesia, china, malaysia, singapore for the sex starved weary and tired japanese soldiers and for the emperor hirohito also of course. But like one person here says their camera is good.i'.just waiting for the canon s120 for its price to go down a little bit...but the panasonic LF1 is also good for its evf but no touch screen..why pana oh why? This is what they called moving one forward but also one or two backwards. But cheaper than s120 tho so it's forgivable. But still I go for s120 for more features that I like besides its pocketability.

The japanese plan after they occupied the Philippines is to mine all the natural resources of the entire island of the Philipines such as copper, gold, timber, iron etc. They will use the people of the Philippines to work manually young and old and they just killed those too weak to work. Japan has a very low on those natural resources on their land. I will called this big time terrorism that will look Boko Haram and alquida combined like a chiken.

Smeggypants: One of the world's most extreme acts of terrorism. We should never forget so that such a repulsive act never happens again!!!

Japanese are worst than today's terrorist they throw a small 3 month old baby into the air and poke it by their bayonets. They raped and killed young women burn their houses. They burned the city of Manila. The US that time are focusing at Europe trying to defeat Germans. Hitler and the Japanese Imprial army collaborated to attack Europe by Hitler and asia by the japanese so as the US power will be divided but Gen Douglas Mcarthur decided to concentrate its forces in Europe first as a result the Philippines suffer too painfull and to long. And finally Gen. McArthur returned and save the Philippines from total destruction.

On Sony a6000 First Impressions Review preview (894 comments in total)

I'm about to order this camera but as soon as I read about people's comments on this forum, (unfotunately dpreview is on the process of hiring camera reviewers and they haven't found one yet.) Most comments on this camera is negative so I will be back to canon camera again. Thanks for all your feedbacks about this so called A6000 camera.

Finally after a year of hagling sony personels agreed to adapt a 24mm to the wide end of their not so pocketable camera with a price just right with a bright lens through out. But the zoom is a little bit anemic. Why can't they make up to 120mm like canon s110 or longer zoom is beyond me. Just my thought.

Do this camera has a lense cover built in the front lense?
