topstuff: I have noticed people starting to show up at public events using ipads as cameras.

When you have a wall of them in front of you, they obscure your view of the event unfolding.

I recently attended a wedding where this was commonplace.

Maybe I am getting grumpy, but I found it incredibly annoying !

And they say, regular cameras are annoying.

Now why they didn't complete the package by including gps too? I am still searching for a mirrorless camera with wifi and gps built in. Any one?

Honestly its a good camera but a bit too pricey. Its also like playing catch-up with other players something Nikon has always done outside their favorite DSLR realm. Their are still a lot of Nikon owners that will get interested. My real question is, what will happen to 1 system?

rolandct: 2 Problems with using the 8 GB version:
1) Slow transfer, however I usually am just transfering select JPGs not every pic so it's usually not a big deal

2) Geo-tagging is almost completely useless since it's based on WiFi. I'm not sure if even one of the thousands I've taken have been tagged right.

If at least 2 is fixed I would consider upgrading, but I doubt it since that would require a GPS receiver.

jquagga: I like your idea to shoot raw and process the selected ones to JPEG for the phone. The problem is the connection between phone and the card is not very good. If I am at home and my home wi-fi is ON then my phone keeps toggling between my home wi-fi and card wi-fi. Any tip how to best do the phone-card connectivity?

SmartCams - Its easy to pronounce, understand and reflects the same trend that we saw with CellPhones.

On article Accessory Review: Tamrac Zipshot Tripod (94 comments in total)

I bought it recently for my Colorado family vacation and used primarily with my Fuji X10. I loved the portability and design. This is mainly for a small camera and not for DSLR. The camera remained attached to this and that allowed us to take a lot of group shots with 5 second setup(unfolding). Constant height helps in faster setup. You can keep it folded and use it for video for better stabilization (as compared to hand held). It even fits in most pockets, baby strollers, backpacks. OMG very very flexible.
PS - I do have a Vanguard Tripod for heavy duty use.

I didn't know that there is a kit that makes it even better....Thanks!

Very competitive system from Samsung. They just need to work on buffer write speeds. I am inclined towards selling my D300s + lenses to get to a lighter and smaller system. Alas Nikon will never release a camera like NX (or other mirrorless models) so why bother...move on..

Doesn't XZ-2 beat this one? It may not be a pocket size but still that lens on S110 is very slow.

Newly announced D600
Newly announced Tamron 24-70
Newly announced Tamron 70-200

Oh boy, I wish I was building my first camera system first :-(

techmine: Poor man's equivalent of legendary Nikkor 70-200 f2.8?

I love Tamron's VC. I have a much cheaper 70-300mm and absolutely love it. I have heard only best things about nikkor 70-200mm, so can't say anything bad about it but price wise it is just too much. Will definitely look for the reviews. This might well be my next lens.

Sorry Samsung get ready to be sued by Apple because the color of the camera is white and the font of the brand name closely resembles that of Apple :-) sorry to bring it up but I am tired of listening that Samsung is a big copy cat.

Nice looking camera/device.

I am actually in the market for a superzoom. Most likely it's going to be Panasonic fz200. Its a camera cut above the rest with constant f2.0 aperture. That feature alone is enough for me.

Mssimo: Cameras like the G5 keep looking better and better. Soon DSLRs will be for semi and PRO only.

I totally agree. The mirrorless and enthusiast p&s cameras are getting better and better. They are overcoming their shortcomings very fast. On the other hand DSLRs are struggling to up the ante. Right now, bigger sensor is the only thing abuzz.
