b534202: The problem is that these are designed for people with 3 hands.

3 reliable hands! Looks slippery.

Roland Karlsson: So. Why not think out of the box?

Put that thing on a tripod.
Use your phone to control it.
A kind of studio camera?

Or put that thing on a quad copter.
And see the image on your phone?
Does that work?

It will be interesting to find out whether or not the camera must be in tethered range of phone during use.

Any stabs at street price?

I think these units still cost too much to sell. A camera that must be used "tethered" to a phone is an accessory, a $250/$500 accessory.

jjl: I've been asking for just this kind of thing for a while now... If they market it well, and the app/software is good, this could be wonderful.

Though, you could get similar results with a more traditional point-n-shoot camera that had good wifi connectivity to phones.

Personally, I love my DSLR, but actually use my iPhone more often, simply because I have it with me all the time. My DSLR is bulky, but the camera on my iPhone is limited.

Problem with Sony is that software/UI is not traditionally one of their strengths. Fingers will need to be crossed on this one.

Bulkier than an actual RX100, indeed!

If Sony were to make the "cheaper" unit for approx $100 it could sell, WELL. Advertise the zoom and video capabilities and wireless uploading possibilities with apps and they would be set. Oh, and make a white one.

On article Microsoft to acquire Nokia's smartphone business (68 comments in total)

I should be shedding a few tears shortly. I was hoping for Android OS to revitalize Nokia.

On article Sony A3000 First Impressions Review (628 comments in total)

What a blessing, folks. The most compelling thing is the price, which will drive competitors down.

Nothing wrong with nitpicking, gearheads want the best. But you better hope that this one succeeds.

Hipster cash, get it while it's hot!

SWSF14: Canon did just enough with the Android/iOS implementation. They will continue selling tons of these cameras with their saturation in the retail marketplace. It's disappointing that they did not upgrade the sensors but that's how it goes when it comes to making more out of the average consumer. I'm considering a RX100 (MK1) now. God bless Sony for trying.

Canon no doubt has had longterm success and a solid overall lineup that one would not hesitate to recommend to others.

I just happen to only carry one camera at a time, so I will always pick the "revolutionary" one if I have a choice. God bless having choices?

We're informed about a very interesting piece of work that involves photography.

Why do some people insist on wasting time trolling when they aren't even interested?

What goes up, must come down...

This is a SAD story. Wonder if LG had them sign waivers?

These will certainly cost more than the phone!

On article Panasonic launches Lumix DMC-XS3 slimline zoom compact (35 comments in total)

Nice styling, especially the black model. Looks like a great shape for pockets too. If $150 this would make an outstanding gift or travel camera.
