Gal Root: Meh.. camera like this become obsolete..phones are catching up quickly. It's the zoom that makes the difference. Panasonic ZS100 obliterate the Sony IMO.

Unless you put a 1" sensor in a phone they ain't catching up at all..

mandophoto: I've never liked having to remove the SD card out the camera. The process of continual opening and closing of the battery/SD compartment door, removing and the reinserting the card is too mechanically prone to problems. So when available I use WiFi (preferred) or the USB cable (which is also too mechanical for long term use.)

I suggest you stop using a tooth brush and toil paper, too, sir, because on top of all the potential mechanical problems you could also develop arthritis.

Unless the universal mount accepts my NX, E-mount, m43 and other lenses, it is not a universal mount.

Great images. I would have to be really bitter to say otherwise.

Santa Claus to little Johnny:

I hope your mind is recovered after a day?

So basically pay full retail price for used equipment? Smart businessmen if they can pull it off.

whtchocla7e: The point-and-shoots are alive and well.

The Nex 3/5, the small m4/3 cams from Oly and Panny, the Nikon 1, the Q from Pentax, the premium compacts from various manufacturers?

They're all point-and-shoots in disguise. They sell in mass quantities, the majority of the buyers never purchase an additional lenses or accessories.

Your casual photographer may now have a more capable camera with interchangeable lenses (and they may not even know it!) but the point-and-shoot mentality does not change.

The definition of a point-and-shoot should be more dynamic to reflect the current state of the (lower end) camera market.

If 499 out of 500 people use a Nikon D3100 as a point-and-shoot then I call Nikon D3100 a point-and-shoot. I redefine product category based on shooting style. That's my new 2014 way of thinking. Catch up :)

Not bad for a DSLR.

While this wide zoom is ok, I don't get the reasoning behind releasing the other slow zooms for these supposedly enthusiast cams...

I guess I have to wait for PowerShot G7 X II to come with an EVF... For now, the RX100III remains the more attractive option.

The A6000 will be replaced and forgotten in 6 months. Sony won't spend the money to update it.

2/3" sensor... Did you really listen to customer feedback now, Fuji?

I like shaky video. The hyperlapse footage looks unnatural.

If the original image as stored on the memory card - after the monkey pressed the shutter - belongs to no one then Slater was free to edit the image and publish his version. His published version is his original work and he absolutely has the right to demand that Wikipedia takes it down.
