In the world of those less fortunate to being able to buy the latest gadget, working with available tools is a rule. I bought my Canon 10D from a guy fortunate enough to upgrade it for Canon 50D. It as been my trusty workhorse since 2005 and event hough I bought a Pentax 20D a few years later, wich is my main camera right now, I still use it now and then mainly for photos to post in the Internet. With some tweaking in post production it still is perfectly capable of producing good results for printing up to A3 size without much apparent difference to a larger resolution sensor.
It is rather slow on focusing but nothing to cry about if don't shoot sports or fast moving subjects.
If you need to shoot low light, 800 ISO is ok and as long you go for black and white you can dare to shoot at 1600 ISO... :-)

KimPortugal: Sometimes we get so lost in the pixelpicking game that we forget that photography is more about the content than the technicism. My first digital was a Canon 10D wich I still use in some situations.
Recently I was asked by National Geographic Magazine to use one my photos to featured as a double page in one of their issues. Go figure, when all the fuzz is medium format digital they're willing to use a six megapixel Jpeg image...

If you want to see the picture send me your email and i'll be glad to send you the photo chosen by NG Magazine. I don't know how to post it here...

True!
I'm not a intensive user of IG but since they started to force feed us publicity I've been using it less often.
I'm sick and tired of publicity...

Am I seeing things upside down?
Personaly I wouldn't buy this camera for the listed price only to have the possibility of using Android Apps to treat photos and upload them through the UMTS network.
I'd rather see Samsung and others develop a comm module to be connected to their lineup of cameras.
With ease a comm bus can be inserted in a camera that will allow it to communicate with such module in order to upload the desired photos. Creative software may easily be embedded in the camera or downloaded via a proprietary or free synchronising tool.
This is the kind of solution I'd applaud for professionals working in the field...

On photo fog in the Pentax April Exhibition Challenge challenge (2 comments in total)

I love the mood created by the fog and the diffuse light.
It gives me some sense of loneliness and nostalgia at the same time...
Well captured moment, almost poetic.
Congrats
