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.

locke_fc: Sorry, but a 1/1.7" sensor is no longer acceptable. Might as well use your smartphone instead.

Why not?

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.

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.

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?

Another iphone look alike.. waiting to be sued by apple and no sd slot too. This one must be sold only in China for their own good.

Lee Jay: For this, I'm more interested in Canon S120 specs than this. 24-120 (5x) with speed and a larger sensor trumps 24-240 (10x) with a slower lens and smaller sensor in this application for me. And, yes, I'd accept a thicker system to get it. It's only something like that which could possibly convince me to start shooting with a cell phone. Until then, I'll carry my compact in the same pocket with my phone.

....and with a lense error message on your s120 lcd as a bonus good luck.

It's a phone... its a kids phone not a dslr. It just happen that Samsung slap a camera on it..a camera that won't have a "lense error" message unto it like my canon s100.

mauijohn: Overall this smartphone is a lot better than my Canon S100 to carry in my pocket without worrying the lense got stuck with "lense error" message on lcd. Plus the zoom is double on this phone.

How long it will last.. i'm sure it will last longer I mean a lot longer than my canon s100 with lense extended and stuck in that position with expired warranty of just one year.

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.
