visualenvy: For Sony to kill off any Nikon/Canon threat they must do the following.. now.

1. Ergonomics - fix those bodies!
2. Buttons - it has some but needs more. Also illuminate them.
3. Top LCD - similar to the GFX/X-H1
4. Dials - take away the Exposure Comp dial or remove the markings and leave it blank for customization... how about a mini LCD in the middle of the dial/s.
5. Weather sealing - Proper sealing that won't cause overheating.
6. Lenses - 300mm f4, 500mm f5.6.. $1800, $2500

Are you a betting man? ;)

lotzi: -Sony will never be able to make bigger buttons
-Sony will never be able to make the camera bigger such that I can fit my fingers between the large lens and the grip
-Sony will never be able to change the menus
-Sony will never be able to fix a leak in the weather proofing which makes the camera innards wet when I place its bottom in a puddle.
-Sony will never be able to change the prices on their lenses or cameras
-Sony will never be able to put a bigger battery in the camera

I think that people overestimate the difficulty of the above tasks.

-Sony will never have a soul.

Now, _that_ is a hard one.

Soul...Rotflmao

ScottD1964: That's what Sony said when they invented the Betamax and the minidisc.

Pointless comment of the day...

MaxiMax: Sony is certainly on the right track, as long as they also pay attention to what the camera users have to say about needed product improvement.

Redpit7: This app is really fantastic and highly addictive! I bought it just because I liked the promo videos and this thing really works! I don’t know the magic behind this app but I enjoy playing around with the 8+ portrait mode. As a quite experienced DSLR photographer who knows about PP I tell you this: if you pay attention and perform precise lighting positioning and trimming with a final result in mind this app can produce results that go well beyond just some eye catching Instagram pics. I also liked it a lot for product shooting where you can be very creative with light sources and colors. It opens really new ways ahead and I’m really interested to see where this and other similar applications will lead mobile phone photography.

What a refreshing post.

I really wish I never got rid of my Motorola Startac. Best phone I ever owned.

I never had a Startac -but it was the phone that made me want one.

Thanks for that AB -won't make any difference to the putz, though ;*)

TMax1980: From what I am able to see from the samples is the lens renders scenes without much contrast. ... pictures look "flat."

You're probably right, dp, -I suspect it's a bit of both.

That's a fact. The light in southern Oregon is flat, and less bright than I was used to as a native of Southern California. I've been in Grants Pass 4 years, and still haven't gotten used to it. I'm certain it's even more noticeable in Seattle. Where I live, the legal brush-burning is the biggest problem (smoke-wise) -with weed-smoke a distant second ;)

Ebrahim Saadawi: Shoot a small bad promo with it. It's like a "good" camera but has a few quirks that without which, it'd be excellent.

The boot up time is a big deal,
the small battery life,
the whole electronic zoom thing is just horrible

(please manufacturers DONT AUTOMIZE OUR LENS RINGS, not zoom, not focus, nothing)

They should also make a polished, fast interface for some functions that are painstakingly hard and SLOW to perform like shoot slo-mo, intervalometer, audio controls, just iron out some of the UI sluggishness and make it SNAPPY like a DSLR!

Only those would get me to buy one.

"(please manufacturers DONT AUTOMIZE OUR LENS RINGS, not zoom, not focus, nothing)"
You want to manual focus this thing?!

Steven Ar: Time to be brutally honest.

These articles are far more helpful than the ones about Interchangeable Lens Cameras. They will help more people tenfold.

For example, I bet ratio of S9+ owners to any Canon model camera is at least 10:1. And showing how F2.4 is sharper than F1.5 was an excellent tip.

So thanks to DPR, and keep up the good work.

Dave8 -that makes his point doubly valid.
