I'm pretty excited about this and will probably get one as soon as it comes out.

Just wondering, would it be a waste to get this and not shoot in 4K, but only HD?

I've been away..
but isn't this 'new' Nikon already out of date compared to Sony?

What a timely article. I was just wondering if and how I could replicate the experience of the Ricoh GRii. Looks like you can't yet.

BigBen08: If the IQ is as good - or better - than my ZS3, then I'll buy it.

That's what I was thinking reading this.. is how it compares to the zs3 which is still in use.

That's amazing!

I've been away from dpreview for some time. Since coming back, I can't believe Sony is now #2 and people are raving about Fuji.

In reply to:

marc petzold: That kind of digicam class looses more and more marketshare...and will soon fade out within the next years. ppl using this kind of camera using their smartphones more then ever - and the IQ is good enough for that kind of application "snap shots". The only thing the smartphones don't have right now is zoom, but samsung is making for instance a android cellphone with zoom lens, also with poor IQ. HighEnd compacts are still in huge demand (RX100 III & Co) and so will be the DSLR/DSLM market. Soccer Mums would prefer something with much zoom, but smartphones will have that more and more within the next couple years.

Nokia n808. Don't bother replying unless you own one or have seen it's output.

What about on-line printing sites? You send them the high-Rez file so they can send you the print. What if they hold on to it? Print their own? Claim it's theirs?

On article 5 Reasons why I haven't used my DSLR for months (593 comments in total)

I've gone the other way..
Sometimes I wonder if there is nothing I can't capture with the sony rx100, and marvel at the output.

Yet I've gone from aps-c to full frame, and there is a quality to the images that holds you're attention longer and cannot be duplicated.

So unfortunately, my gear keeps getting bigger.

Ok, that was pretty cool!

How did he collect all these pictures from instagram? Or is instragram one of those sites that can do whatever it wants with your images?

What is the software version of this? In other words, is there a program that you can easily use to do this to your own videos? An instagram-type program for video?

Best invention? Maybe, but more appropriately best innovation.

This is the camera many of us had been wishing for for many years.

I stand by what I wrote. But if there is improvement to be made, who would turn that down? I'm all for it!

I feel that way about cameras in general.

I don't feel that way about the a57. Very happy with jpgs from this cam, and only shoot RAW nowadays for super low light with mixed lighting, for more control over wb.

Can't wait to get one! Even if it doesn't officially get released here, I'll be buying from Europe. It has all the cell technologies so will work anywhere in the world. Nokia is back!

Here's the offical release:
