Dyun27: As amazing as this camera sounds, the 28 megapixel crop sensor would worry me. It's already challenging not to introduce motion blur to the 16 megapixel D7000 sensor with longer lenses, it's definitely challenging with the 36 megapixel full frame sensor of the D800 and the D7100 24 megapixel sensor.

At 28 megapixels with a crop sensor it means having to use higher ISO settings, faster shutter speeds and using VR whenever possible. At that point I'd have to start taking a monopod or tripod wherever I go. Only the shorter lenses would be easy to use.

I have a 24MP camera and the worries are simply like FEAR; which is False Evidence Appearing Real. Unless and if you are regularly producing prints that exceed 20X30" [50.8 cm X 76.2 cm] I have not seen any problems [unless you count better quality as a problem]. I got good results with a 10MP camera and get much better result with the 24MP camera. A photo taken with the 10MP that you can see motion will still be seen with the 24MP camera and will work the other way also till you get below the pixel level on the larger pixeled camera.

The truth is if you use anything remotely like proper technique it will not be a problem unless you have an inability to hold reasonably still for medical or other reason. You will almost never have to raise the shutter speed or ISO and basically you will not need VR any time you would not need it otherwise. But use it if it makes you feel better it is a nice safety net.

Geeeez!! It is small compared to my DSLR, and the 4 to 6 plus lenses I would have to carry to cover its range. So that is not the question. The questions are quality of the images and, speed of the RAW [my S9100 was 10 seconds per shot in RAW], street price and handling, and HIGH ISO Shots quality along with other smaller questions.

If it passes these tests I may get one as my primary back u-p and carry around since it is sa SMALL by comparison.

Yes!!! Irealize it is larger than a micro with their limited quality and abilities but otherwise it is a great size and yes I would like a Micro camera [Shirt pocket size] for my wife and as a replacement for my F30. But this is a much more practical camera size.

Interesting! Seems to be a Very unfair review. am I missing something???

You compared a [US street price] $109 HP against a Epson $171 and a Canon [indicated the best] at $390.

Why not compare a cheap Canon against an expensive HP and Epson and see what happens then.
