James Luidl: Buffer limited during 8fps burst. - WAH! How many bursts do you need all at once.

Maximum ISO limited to 6400 - WAH! When do you need to shoot at 6400 ISO. I've shot film and digital for years and still rarely go over 800, 1600 at night.

Poor video quality - WAH! You bought this for video? Fool.

No touchscreen - WAH! Just WAH! My Minolta SRT doesn't have one either, you don't hear me complaining.

16mp is out resolved by other cameras. - WAH! Fuji has shown its sensor can hang with the big boys. But really, how many photographers are doing 20x30+ prints using this camera.

Man up, learn to use the camera. Be realistic about your expectations and don't sweat the cosmetic hype.

I agree 100% with your points, except the last one.

Sensor resolution does not affect only printing. It also helps, among other things, with cropping which is important to some, like me, who use this as a surrogate for longer focal lengths. So I would prefer the sensor to use the full potential resolution offered by the glass in front of it, or as close as possible. I am not confident 16 Mp is enough to use most of Fuji lenses resolving power (which I would pay for and need).

Again... No challenging low light conditions, that a larger sensor is supposed to cope with better. I'd think it's the one type of shot you would post, that potential buyers would be interested in seeing, instead a bright daylight post card scenes that virtually any modern camera is able to capture. And, again... no "macro".

Wonder why...

I can't believe pics were not at least looked at once before being posted as "samples". So is this obviously out of focus image posted to demonstrate that this camera can't autofocus in some particular conditions?

Joesiv: I think the true potential of this technology will come when/if they introduce an API to process the RAW files.

With such an API, not only could we do what they currently do, but we likely would be able to exagerate the out of focus areas, mimicing effects of large aperture/large sensor cameras. We could also see 3d images among other things.

Time will tell. I'd hope their next model was higher resolution with better manual control. The technology has some potential...

I agree with you that there might be some potential (I am thinking for security camera) but how would you construct a 3D image from data collected through a single lens?
Correct me if I am wrong but the way I understand it, the slight incoming rays angle difference this system is playing with at pixel level (to basically register subject-lens distance information) has nothing to do with the type of angle difference (parallax) you need to create a stereoscopic effect.
