Very good in terms of distortion, very very good!

No matter how good or insufficient this device may be, it will be proved, as tenths of other "smart" solutions made to ease our life from cooking to car care, just a trend which will last some months, for trendy people (irrelevant if they are I-something users or not).
C' mon, we all know it and maybe some of us that we know it have bought in the past such silly, glittering, most promising gizmos, for really unknown(?) reasons...

brn: Warning: not for pixel peepers.

At 1:1, even this ISO100 images look terrible.

I agree with the IQ, but give me a decent image out of this cam and I' ll return a PPed image that will bring a lot of its viewers in doubt for its origin.

Big big zoom bridge cameras are quite a tool, no matter the comments of pixel peepers.
These guys would never tell the difference of an image of a celebrity in the beach or sport scene printed in their favorite tabloid or sports mag.
It's sure that those cams images would never make it to National Geographic pages, but they can capture an image of importance at the glance whereas the pro monsters systems would need an eternity to do it.
Some of those cams offer very good IQ comparable to monsters in some cases.
The P900 seems to offer a decent quality comparing to the results of previous implementations of a couple years old from other manufacturers. Definitely not a top in IQ, but the +30x zoom factor has its cost.

aris14: So $79,000 from 871 photographers makes circa $90 per person.
Fair enough but still what is the reason for the people out there to finance a promo event of a company? Bad attitude Epson.

I mean average per person. Probably some people paid for more than one entries... That's what I posted...

Btw is there any evolution on mirror tele lenses?
They were cheap and at least in broad daylight were producing good results. Given the nowadays technology it wouldn' t be a bad idea for cam manufacturers to reintroduce a mirror lens series. I think they could have a rather strong chance mainly if they were build for APS, 4/3 Aand M43 cams.

aris14: Αt the bdsm (before developing social media) times we all wanted small cellphones.
Then came the smartphones and we all got some plates to serve coffee with which we can make a phone call.
Phones had a decent camera 3 to 5 Mp and then up to 8 Mp quite capable for an sm post, allowing an acceptable A4 print even for mags.
It seems they follow the same curve as ultra compacts some 5-5 years ago with a tiny sensor and a zillion Mps.
There is no reason to have zillion Mps for sm nor bigger sensors. There is no need for that except for companies marketeers just for selling phones. Nothing but with that if their phones were good enough to last 2 days heavy use.

Bdsm is just fine... M_I_L_F is great... EVIL too...
Thx for the input. Smartphones is rather a boring subject...!

Cute, handy, rather affordable, light and small with a stylish touch. In terms of IQ I guess it stands somewhere above average in its class for all people they want a Sony badge.

Oly's typical approach. Cute baby basically aiming to Oly's fans. A tool to live with it for a lot of years.

On Samsung NX1 Review preview (1237 comments in total)

A serious new kid in the block. Very serious and very promising, a practically leader of the pack, well priced. A heavy competition pusher. Lenses are exceptionally good. What else? Keep it up Samsung.

Τhe only feature this cam brings in the table of innovation is the shape of the main body. Badly designed though...

On Opinion: Why the Canon XC10 is a big deal article (810 comments in total)

Well, this cam may be something people would like to have, but to my opinion is nothing more than a facelift plus processors and software goodies. Furthermore a marketing approach of what defines a milestone is just a tale of which we see its tail here.
To my opinion this cam is just an overpriced box which as a product has some serious time to retain its price, that is why they need and seek some promotion friendly alterations and exaggerations such as milestone.

Selling this thing for $450 or selling your status-symbol logo on your strategic partner's proven value camera?

Well, guys, it's not only a matter of price comparison. Problem is the fact that manufacturers produce models which practically have no reason to exist just because...
No matter if they are bad or below average, me too variations or whatever, just to fill the brand's gap in the niche.
There are other ways for manufacturers to capitalize their promotion expenses than producing indifferent products.
