On article Amazon reveals thinner Fire HD tablets (66 comments in total)

Just purchased the HD10. I was looking for a laptop for travel, but got this on impulse. They claim 8 hours of battery life (I have my doubts about that claim). The size and price was a selling point. I am hoping to send emails, read a book, and watch a movie with it either on planes or hotels--nothing more. The keyboard case was $99.00.

We shall see how this goes.

A solution in search of a problem

Craig from Nevada: A tweener--forgoing the advantage of a full frame sensor and the size advantage of m43 with a rated battery life of 250. You get this for $679.

Is that enough to attract anyone other than Canon users?

More than a few Canon/Nikon users have picked up m43 as a second smaller system. I don't know if this is enough to slow that down.

Craig from Nevada: Whew. Lots of people bumming on a $229 camera. This little camera is rugged, sized correctly for travel, and takes decent pictures. It is the kind of camera you pick up before you go on vacation. It will serve you well and if gets beat up, lost or stolen, no big deal.

Oops--$329 camera. S

Craig from Nevada: From the article it appears that they finally are getting the sales volumes they need to be profitable Expect more aggressive pricing to keep product moving.

They must be moving the E-M10s. Nice price at this point. No wonder they are trying to put out a Mark II so quickly--Brand new shiny model that will be heavily discounted by Christmas.

Frankly, I was surprised at the mention of PEN sales as contributing to the increase--the bargain basement E-PL6? must be moving. At the price, it should.

I frankly thought the rest of the line was in trouble.

Looks like NASA did just fine using a point and shoot, proving once again that getting close to your subject is good technique.

Alex7302: It looks like a great camera! However, these high end micro 4/3 cameras are starting to get a bit ridiculous as far as price is concerned. I mean they're competent camera with really cool features. I mean for $1200 you could almost buy a sony A7II. I mean there's the benefit of the mostly cheaply priced great small lenses, which I really like, but the iso performance and lack of shallow depth of field are bummers. But I say all of this as a biased A7 user! That being said, I wish we had the same affordable lens selection as micro 4/3!

The sensor size--lens size tradeoff hasn't quite been solved yet.

Looks like Olympus got the memo. You don't need what we traditionally think of as a camera to take pictures anymore.

A move by Olympus from the camera market to the taking picture market. The product is priced to move.

This would probably be a decent value at $499.
