Oh, Great.I am anxious waiting for Galaxy Note 4 which will probably equip the same spec and bigger screen (6 inches?).Well, unless iPhone comes in like 5.5 inch model, which is quite unlikely, unfortunately.
Michael Ma: This camera is made for people who have never owned a real camera and want all these features, without knowing they'll never use them, and all the disadvantages they bring.
Here's how I'd design the perfect GALAXY Camera.
1. Same specs as their flagship (such as the S4). This is #1 turn off for me when there is no clear advantage for buying a product over another. It should simply be the same phone as a S4, except with a camera and a camera form-factor.2. Great lens. I'd rather have an edge-to-edge sharp 28mm (equiv) F8 fixed focus, than a useless 21x zoom.3. People who buy such a thing place image quality at a high priority. A noisy, heavy-handed noise removal at ISO 200 (or even ISO 400 for that matter) is an instant deal breaker. It is the quintessential perfume on a pig. A great 8MP capture is better than a useless 16MP picture that doesn't meet quality standards for any enthusiast.4. RAW. A person who would buy one probably cares about extracting the best image possible.
Unfortunately, if you ask people about camera purchase, most two important things are: (1) number of pixels(2) zoom ratioSo, I am sure that this camera is geared up for those group of people, which are most common around us - that is, there are not photographers at all.
Correct translation would be, "White world starts from Canon". And here in Korea, they think that it's going to be "white body". It's just an another buzz marketing, I presume...
Excellent. K-3 must be the best APS camera if it works as advertised.I wish Pentax had 15-85mm lens like Canon's.
I think that the most innovative feature is the 8M resolution with bigger pixel size. Virtually no one has done it. If they could add more pixels, they always did. If they are idiots, they make it 41M as if we actually need it. It (41M resolution) may make sense, if the phone comes with 256G internal memory with the same price and the 8GHz CPU that can process the 41M image in same speed, and the extra strength battery, and the super speed 6th-generation LTE, and next next generation WiFi.
Apple, well done. It is the best camera phone ever. Congratulations.
I wish Samsung would do that too, since I am using Galaxy Note 2 and I don't have plan to come back to Apple (I am getting old and my eyes can't read things on small iphone screen any more unfortunately). But I know, Samsung will do the same idiotic behavior as Nokia does, since the only thing they can do against Apple would be pixel numbers, which is the easiest thing that manufacturers can do.
41M pixel makes my photos unusable. I never needed over 8M for my phone camera.
Well done Samsung. Two Thumbs Up~! Even though I don't have plan to purchase this time, probably in the future. During the time, I hope that this would trigger more interesting products.
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 :-(
