Charlie Jin: When the new iPhone 6 comes out, current iPhone 5's will be on sale. It looks like Samsung Galaxy Alpha and S5 are to compete against such dumping iPhone 5's, not against iPhone 6. "Maybe", Note 4 could be the contender.
I am one of such people. I had been using iPhone 1st generation to iPhone 4, until my eyes just could not catch up the small screen any more. I am using Note 2 and have been fairly happy with its big screen. But I will switch back to iPhone 5.5 inch. However, I will keep Note 2 for other purposes. For example, with AirDroid app it can be a very nice watchdog cam :-) Also, other Aduino fun projects...

OK. I have Sony RX100-mk1 and I was going to upgrade to mk3, especially because of the bright lens (and built-in WiFi). I compared the portraits from NX Mini and those from Sony RX100 mk3 (the sample pictures in here preview). To me, RX100-mk3 is not in the same league as NX Mini which produces so much better and more artistic pictures. Sony may be more detailed and pictures may be sharper, but that's not my preference. Now, I am hesitant. The only upside for Sony is that it's very pocketable. I am not sure how much pocketable NX Mini is. Does anyone have good experience in using both cameras ? Thanks.
Can't say about other types of pictures, but for portraits, wow, I can't believe that you can produce such quality from a 1" sensor camera. The skins look gorgeous. Maybe it's the prime lens ?
Should have been posted on April 1. LOL.Also, there should be an adaptor for 70-200mm F2.8 lens.
peevee1: 2 kits? $50 apart?
I believe 20-50 is about half size of the 16-50. So, with 20-50, it becomes almost pocketable.
select: I would never buy a Samsung camera... it's crap
You guys don't need Samsung products. Just buy something else and be happy for yourself.
I already have Sony RX100. I wonder how it compares with this one - size and image quality and also user interface. I am satisfied with the quality of RX100, but it's user interface is aweful. I always have to figure out-which takes time - and the process becomes not point and shoot, but point - figure out - ...... - point and shoot. It looks like Sony is going to have a trouble as competition is going high.
The next generation should have GPS and Wireless WiFi,which in case I plan to buy. Don't know why Nikon is one-generation (5 years) behind Canon.
I'll also hold off on praise or criticism until we see the actual photographs from Galaxy S5. If the photos are like the ones in the video, I'm buying it (Maybe Galaxy Note 4 - since I need a bigger screen). Currently, I am using Note 2 and I don't have any complaint regarding its sensor comparing with my previous phone, which was iPhone 4. I was thinking of going back to iPhone because there was a rumor that it's going to have a bigger size (5.5 inches), but it's quite unlikely :-(
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...
