nikon AW100 lasted one week on a snorkel trip, fogging LCD crap auto focus soft images etc.It was replaced by Nikon and would probably have kept it if the images from the old Ixus 70 in the Dicapac housing did not look better!12 months later after pounding surf , sand rain and sunscreen the Dicapac still does the job and has a strap that can get wet. Learnt my lesson well on future purchases in this category of camera.
Aaron Sur: Its 1994 all over again, the reincarnation of the 28ti, discontinued because of poor sales apparently.Hope this one works out better,Shame about it costing as much as Current Olympus Pens with a couple of decent lenses thrown in. Is the NX RAW converter extra?
I was not even thinking omd, even an EPL-5 with a couple of mid price primes will outperform this one .

Frank C.: Sony sensor in a Nikon... what a dreadful idea! Too bad it isn't genuine like my iphone with its 100% exclusive Apple parts! ;-)
Marc T: Apple removed the IR filter from the iPhone 5 and as a result it has a purple cast. Not well thought out in making the phone thinner. Lets see it's made in what appear to be slave labor camps by unhappy workers who rioted last week and it costs under $190.00 US to produce using many Samsung parts. LA Times sroty on purple cast http://www.latimes.com/business/technology/la-fi-tn-iphone-5-camera-purple-20120926,0,4988730.story
Its got a special feature called i lost .Others have crude navigation apps
one of the best military aircraft phots I have ever seen , fantastic well done
Camediadude: Sure, the design looks to be thoroughly thought out (as to be expected), but the omission of a viewfinder in so many of these mirrorless debuts just irks me to no end. I will never again buy a camera without one... I was burned once and that was enough to last me for life! Nothing can replace having a little window to frame things and see it a little differently ...
in all fairness to my rejecting the first EOS there was a Canon "Autofocus Attempt" called the T80. Anyone who went down that path would think twice maybe three times about auto focus SLRs hehe
Michael Reichmann from Luminous Landscapes said in his his OlympusXZ-1 review that he could not consider the using a compact camera without a viewfinder( the XZ-1 had EVF compatibility so it met his requirements ) In his Sony RX100 review he praises the camera's features , there is no mention of the view finder. I remember the time I walked away from the then new EOS film cameras when updating my older FD lens canon SLR , all that funky autofocus and plastic could not be a serious photographic tool ! The LCD screen is the new viewfinder , not perfect but what a new generation of smartphone, tablet computer, gaming console consumer is comfortable with . I remember my Nikon CP990 with the 1.8" screen and crappy optical viewfinder . Most of us found accessories to enhance the LCD , I am sure this is what will happen with this camera tool
one of these with a EFS 55-250 will reach out to 400mm optical ,stabilized as well , at very little cost in price and weight . Perfect for the amateur enthusiast.
