panther fan: On common misunderstanding. The NFT DOES NOT CONTAIN THE IMAGE. It at most contains a link to an image hosted on some other server. So if did hosting services takes the address down the NFT contains exactly nothing.

Has already happened in the real world as NFTs of tweets were sold and then the tweets got deleted making you the owner of a glorious link to nothing.

It is better to think of NFT as collectible cards/stickers. Owning a card of an NFL player doesn't make you the owner of the player. It just makes you the owner of that specific card. Can still be a collectible. So selling you an NFT of an image doesn't make you an owner of the image. It gives you no rights over its distribution or rights to display it.

Yup! A NFT is basically a certificate saying you spent some amount of imaginary internet money to buy a link to something.

This article is awful. NFTs are basically a Ponzi scheme that consumes prodigious amounts of energy and destroys the environment in the process. There is no reason why DPReview should be promoting NFTs for photographers.

Yeah, this seems like a bad idea. I guarantee people would easily lose that little camera module if they removed it from the phone.

I use mine to connect a camera for Zoom meetings and it has worked flawlessly. No proprietary drivers are necessary - driver support is built into the operating system.

Interesting, I might have to pick up one of these. Thanks for the link!

Boy, being told that the company is losing money really makes me want to invest more money into it.

Great article and impressive eclipse shots! (And now I'm listening to Chris Cornell and Soundgarden, RIP.)

WillWeaverRVA: This just about looks like the ultimate travel camera, which is about right considering that the previous iterations of the RX100 are pretty much also the ultimate travel camera. It's just mindblowing that there's now seven versions of the RX100 readily available, and some of the older ones are still quite capable cameras.

Yeah, I was mainly referring to the combination of image quality, optical zoom, and pocketability. I like M43 cameras but none of them are pocketable. The Ricoh GR III has an APS-C sensor and beats both M43 and this camera in IQ, but it has a fixed lens and this zoom might be more convenient if the distortion isn't terrible.

The ergonomics of this camera are a nightmare but honestly, this seems really interesting. Could make for a pretty solid video camera.

This is actually really cool! I love these DIY projects that bring new life to old gear.

I find it weird that CD-Rs would degrade that much. I have CD-Rs from 2002-03 that still work fine.

This is actually a really clever take on the Instax concept. This could prove to be a useful utility...I could imagine a landscape photographer scouting locations for shoots and using the audio recording feature to make annotations, for instance. I don't know how practical it is but it's certainly unique.
