DP Merrills have interval timer

Just thought everyone should know they do all have interval timers.

This camera will make the DP series more competitive. I think it will also compete better against the Nikon D800.

I agree with you about more people buying this camera.  However I never have seen the DP cameras as competing against any particular DSLR, instead I think of them more as complementary - as in, have trouble finding a really high quality wide angle on the D800?  Well try a DP1Q on for size...

Some may buy a DP instead of a DSLR, but I think most would be prone to go with a few cameras.  And that is great.

I think people will be more likely to buy this new camera, rather than the bigger, heavier, more expensive Nikon . . . if they can deal with the fact that they'll only have the one focal length and can't shoot video. I think some people will choose the Quattros over the Sony A7 and A7r cameras too.

That I can totally see given the quality for the price.  If I want to take really high ISO photos, well I have an iPhone that is acceptable... for landscape give me a DP.
