wootpile: Go ahead n mount it the same way as demonstrated and your hotshoe will be bent and broken in less than a day of use. anyone should be able to see the physical strain that such imbalance on a small support creates.

LOL - dumbest hack I've ever seen. Irreparable material fatigue in one day flat.

If you must try this: mount it on the base.

First with the velcro you can adjust the balance if that is of your concern. Second Andy Crowe mentioned the portrait mode. Here the forces on the hot shoe with a big flash like the SB-910 and 4 batteries included are not balanced at all and much higher than this battery pack here in either portrait or landscape mode.

Regarding the scene:
Having twice the brushes, color tubes and cards in the scene doesn't make a lot of sense to me. Instead I would prefer additional objects, something like the globe (of the old scene). The different text sizes on the globe were nice for comparison of resolution and high ISO capabilities of different cameras side by side and which texts can still be read. Different text sizes are relevant to allow also a distinction or comparison for the future when the cameras in maybe 4 years come with the a 100MP sensor.

Boissez: This is the first cameraphone that truly cuts the mustard. However I don't believe I'll buy it unless they'll put in some sort of protection for the lens. Such a shame really because the quality seems to exceed my current lx3 in a pocketable form factor (the phone part is just a bonus). Oh and RAW would be nice too but I'm not holding my breath on that one.

While the Gorilla Glass helps against scratches a typical problem of phones is the dust that gets between the glass and the lens ... especially when carrying the phone without protection shell in your pockets.
