They only need 3 more buyers.

Still too slow and requires tripod though I am sure it will continue getting faster and faster at each generation.

Summary - hang on the R2 until R4.

Better off with a Loxia 21 and A7Rii combo.

Samsung S6, S7, and S8 phones use both their sensor and Sony sensor. Most people prefers Sony sensors if they have a choice.
I am sure this is like a thorn in Samsung's shoe.

The Japanese defenses their turf better this time, after losing the TV and memory business to Samsung. Even Samsung made a good sensor, no other OEM put it in their camera. So Samsung lost big money after a series of camera launch. Appears they have given up now.

wildbild: One of the biggest shortcomings of the Samsung system in retrospect has been its flange distance, that didn't allow for adapters.

Misleading. Samsung NX flange focal distance is 25.5, so it can accept all the Canon, Nikon, Pentax, Contax lenses. There are plenty of cheap adapter on eBay like this

I guess they think there are a lot for rich old guys who don't know how to do Photoshop.

Max Iso: I wonder if Canon will eventually allow augmentation of bokeh through depth mapping with DPAF. I would bet it would look far better than what's on phones since you already have greater DOF control on the larger sensor. Take an 85 f1.8 and add a stop or two blur?

never. They make more money by selling fast lenses.

Triplet Perar: This is just horrible. Unfortunately, millions of photographically illiterate noobs who salivate over Noctiluxes and fast portrait lenses are feeding and encouraging these companies to spend time creating horrible things that excel in delivering something obviously fake, rather than something real.

Optical or digital, they are both faked.

except you will share your images with the Chinese.

DesoloZantas: If Google or (Modern) Samsung made a Mirrorless Camera at this time of age, it would immediately be at the top.

LOL, it's the supplier who made the camera. They are just the highest bidder.

matthew saville: Wow, $32M is all they're worth? The camera bag industry really is rough... Poor Lowepro. I hope they keep their quality up...

They paid with real cash, not paper money though.

toni2: AMD brought us 64 bits. Now, AMD brings us more cores.

Intel is doing nothing in innovation. They only move if another company moves before.

Wait, that is not correct people. AMD offered more cores for many years before. Their old cores were suck until now.

Perfect timing. My i7-3700 is due for a refresh. I want a mini-ITX cube case this time. AMD Ryzen 1800X has a mixed result against i7-7700, only faster at multi-core workload which does not help my Adobe task. This new 6 core/12 thread will surely kick the 1800X butt, with only a small price bump. Good.

The next step up on AMD side is 1900X series, but the chip/socket is so huge. I don't know if it can ever fit in a mini-ITX (maybe even mATX).

I bought this camera and a flash for $1000 on its release. It was sweet thing back then. The camera suddenly died on my about 4 years later during a trip.

neatpicture: I had Iphones at the the beginning, had android for the last 5 years... getting ready to go back to iphone. I am tired of having a phone that needs to be babysat a like a PC. I want a phone that just works with no fuss and no maintenance from my side.

Go ahead. Switch to Apple. They don't drop price because more people are buying.
