In reply to:

chiane: Remember old folks, if it doesn't look like every other dslr, it's ugly.

Also if it has lights just for show, it is ugly. And if it is ugly it's ugly.

LukeLT63: From the outside it seems the camera of David Hasselhoff in the TV series Knight Rider (Supercar)..... :-O ..... goes very car!

That was my first thought. Maybe they can make a model with red LED that does voice control. "Michael, shall I switch to ISO 1600? It's getting dark"

Elliot H: instead of a pimped out camera, how about a fully articulating lcd which would be useful to many

You can have articulating LEDs if you want, but no LCD.

Still the same lens and sensor size. Might as well get an X20

Markol: This is going to be a hard sell, even for Fuji

I agree. They should have gone 1" to better compete.

Ulfric M Douglas: Somehow I don't think they really carried blunt reenactment weapons of dubious provenance. Very poor.

You, sir, win eye-rolling comment of the day!

The only key selling point low end compacts have over iPhones these days is zoom. So I'm not surprised to see these.

Felix E Klee: What's the point of this article? If you release something to the public, you have to live with the consequences.

Uhh, that IS the point of the article.

Can you name some examples?

beavertown: LOL!

Another 1" camera's IQ beats the shxt out of the V3.

Only idiots buy the V3 for 1200 bucks.

I'm guessing he hasn't been to "beavertown" for far too long based on his demeanor.

William Koehler: "Earlier this month the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 joined the RX10 in this newly-minted category boasting almost certainly the same sensor and a 25-400mm equivalent F2.8-4 lens."

I think it is highly doubtful that Panasonic is using a Sony sensor. Same size yes, but not the same sensor.

So far they've always used their own sensors, even with Olympus jumped on the sony train, so I tend to agree.

Only idiots think they can decide what cameras are the best fit for all other photographers.

Is a Toyota a "turkey"?

You are acting like Canon is Yugo.

Ben O Connor: A full frame sensored, Canon EF mouthed Nokia ? Or 5D mark V, that allows phone calls to friends !!!

Both sounds exciting :D

It looks like a 5D but comes with a bluetooth headset.

John McMillin: Sounds like a perfect match. Both C and M are big, coasting on market dominance from past achievements. Both are complacent, slow to respond to new products and developments (mirrorless, tablets, the web). Both make bloated and graceless products, favored by those who look not at the entire market, but over their shoulders to see what their peers are using.

OK, fanboys, is that enough fuel for you? Let the flames begin!

I give you 4/5 on the troll-0-meter.

1 in 5 would use RAW? you make me laugh. I bet barely 1 in 5 SLR users use RAW.

Apple phones consistently win "real world" photo comparisons, so I disagree. Many, many people buy iphones because it's got a good point and shoot camera along with lots of apps for editing and sharing.

1/10000 are actually going to shoot RAW on a phone. Carrying lenses defeats the purpose of a camera phone. The more you try to turn it into a "Real" camera, the less appeal it has as an always in your pocket device.

I wouldn't argue with a microSD slot and some manual controls in menu that you could enable, though. Although, again, prob 99% of apple's customers love that you just mash a circle button and the pictures turn out great most of the time.

Ironic calling the biggest imaging company and the biggest software company "turkeys".

Those supposed "iphone problems" don't mean anything to the average consumer. If you want to argue enthusiast camera phones, well that's a tiny niche. Apple's too busy making money hand over fist providing consumers with mass-appeal products with a touch of status thrown in.
