Charlie Jin: This is my dream cam (of course it works as advertised). I always wanted a camera+phone that can take reasonably good pictures (far better than typical phone camera) with photo editing apps like Snapseed, and social apps such as Kakao Story, and cloud apps. Sending the edited pictures through messaging apps such as Kakao Talk, and etc. Finally it arrived.
Camera Hardware is only half of the story. Does Nokia have Snapseed? Or other various photo editing tools like Samsung (Android) ? Are various social apps such as Kakao Story and Kakao Talk, Vibe, Tumbler, etc. available? How about cloud apps ? Will it be supported in the future?
Hmmm. to Pentax, 1/1.7" is a "larger" sensor...Now, I understand why Samsung "kicked out" Pentax some years ago. It's simply hopeless...

SeeRoy: Yet another bag that offers the tantalising promise that it will enable us to lug around a stage-weight DSLR without discomfort. It won't. Buy a lighter camera.Roy
This is 21st Century. There must be a bag that will significantly reduce the weight of DSLR to the level of P&S ;-) At least the "feeling of weight" ergonomically ... that is...
marike6: The absence of external pockets and the unpadded strap are kind of a bummer on what otherwise looks like a nice bag. Unfortunately those are two features I've gotten used to with my Lowepro bags. Out shooting, you'll always have filters, clothes, memory cards, batteries, etc. Having someplace to put accessories, especially in a bag zoom bag that will most likely have no extra room in the main compartment is essential.
Do you know which one of the Lowepro is similar to this ?I need just this size (it's just perfect for me), except thepadded strap. Thanks.
Looks like 6D is lesser than 7D, but full frame (uh, with WiFi and GPS).
I expect that Canon will announce sooner or latera full-frame mirrorless interchangeable camera,which is lighter and smaller than D600 andcosts similar to that of D600.I think that it is the only way for Canon in order to overcome the two fierce competitors in full frame market.
Also, I believe that mirrorless interchangeable full-frameis the future direction.
BTW, Well done, Nikon.That's really a good job.Congratulations~!
Zvonimir Tosic: Spend not life of yours living with a tunnel vision.Think of Q is more like Yoda: small package, big Force. And surprisingly fun!
The right description is - not so small package, such a tiny Force with no fun. If you want your Yoda package, get somewhere else. Not Pentax.
Charlie Jin: Same external size as Sony RX100, without the lens attached.With lens mounted Sony RX100 is much smaller.But RX100's sensor is more than 5 times bigger.
Why would you want to change the lens for such a small senor camera ?Also, I can attach Macro Lens such as Raynox 250 with great results. 2.5x tele lens attachment is also available, which I haven't tried yet. Wide angle lens also available. All these results should be better than Q10's.

Although I am stuck to iOS, thanks to the numerous purchasesof music and apps, I wish Nokia and MicroSoft succeed.
Android is well too much like iOS. It's a degenerated iOSwhich is free.Let's have something different. The world needs diversity.
Whenever I see NEX attached with such a big lens,I just cannot help laughing... What a big joke...Why don't they make some nice quality pancake lens?
Good for Android users.But I am sort of tied to Apple. I already bought so manypicture editing/filter Apps, and have more than 60 such apps in my collection for my iPad and iPhone. Now, I rarely need touse PhotoShop, since apps in iOS are so diverse. I only need toknow which apps can do which better.
I wish Apple also come up with iCamera or something like that.The only thing I can do now is I use Sony RX100 with Eye-Fi andtransfer the images to my iPhone and iPad.Too bad that most apps in iOS don't support the high resolution images yet :-(
Gkpm: Stupidest idea I've heard all year. We carry phones already, just need cameras that communicate with them.
Absolutely no need for cameras to become phones, just more time wasted with an extra platform to setup, keeping up to date and worry about security.
You must be over 70 years old...The rest of us need this camera. Absolutely.I am sure that the next version of Sony RX100 willcome with Android like this Samsung.
You see, the key concept is connectivity with "social",and a lot of editing applications on Android,with "good" quality image capture which cannot be doneusing just a cell phone camera.
It's been about a couple of weeks since I had Sony RX-100. Wow~! I just cannot believe how they can do this. It's so compact that I am bringing RX100 all the time, like my iPhone. I have been using Canon 7D and it's collecting dust since then. The image quality of RX 100 is so good that I wonder whether I really need 7D. With Eye-Fi, I save pics directly to my iPhone/iPad, and edit it there with various picture editing apps. Great !
What is really impressive is that the manual control is better than 7D. With 7D, 70% of the time, I used manual mode, and I was wondering whether any compact camera will give such DSLR like manual control. My Panasonic LX-3 was probably my worst buy. Expensive, so and so image quality and control was aweful. With Sony RX100, manual control was really delightful. I love it better than my 7D.
BTW, it is very strange that DP Review didn't give it a Gold Award though. No, I'm not a Sony fan. I have not bought a Sony product for quite a long time.
Wow, this one is just perfect for advanced P&S.Especially I like the two dial buttons on top.I hate the touch screen.Tilt and rotatable screen is great too. Great specs.I love the WiFi feature. Finally it's here.I can take pictures and simply upload it from camera.I wonder whether it will come with some photo editingapp and apps that upload photos to facebook/twitter/...etc.
AbrasiveReducer: Since ownership of Canon or Nikon lenses doesn't seem to be a consideration (why even comment on a camera that you have no intent to buy since you have no lenses for it) I have concluded that the 5D mk III and D800 are both very good cameras but the Nikon is twice as good a value. D800 = 36mp for $3000. That's just $83 per megapixel. 5D mk III = 22mp for $3500. That's $159 per megapixel. Even if you have some of the better Canon lenses, ones that Nikon has no equivalent for, it makes sense to switch brands since you will make up the savings over time in megapixels.
No, weight doesn't matter much these days.It should be volume that's important, sincebigger ones look very professional and givesso much satisfaction.
kuklukklak: Great test, neutral result.
Funny to see Canon and Nikon swap their strategy regarding to noise vs MP and their fan boy defending them hard. LOL
I fully agree. Nikon fan boys used to say that they never need more than 12M pixels, and better low light performance is the most important. Now, they are saying the opposite. And vice versa for Canon...
I don't think that DPR really understood the purpose of theweight of K01. It was intended for "professional feel". ;-)
EliasT: A photographer just needs a D700 with 16MP, nothing more! Bells and whistles are marketing that cost $$.
Hughesnet, what a stupid sarcastic remarks without any merits.EliasT has a point. But you don't, except the ill-mind set.
