noflashplease: The dual camera concept is going to be a depreciated gimmick before Apple brings their own rendition of the concept to market. As it is, the pseudo-bokeh of this Chinese smartphone looks dreadfully artificial and the price seems rather alarming for a phone with a Mediatek processor. All the same, it's interesting to see any new concept in the increasingly dull smartphone market. Maybe the concept will work better in succeeding generations, or maybe it will be dropped? Either way, this seems like a lot of money for Chinese hardware.

"this seems like a lot of money for Chinese hardware"
Are you sure? $300 for 128 gb flash and 4gb ram...

On article Gear of the Year Part 4: Dale's pick - Samsung NX1 (408 comments in total)
In reply to:

iAPX: the best EVF in it's class, but still a new technology called "OVF" offer no visible lag, 100% sRGB and 100% adobeRGB coverage, an incredible gamma curve (nearly that of an human eye), more than 20 IL dynamic range (!!!).

Anyway the NX1 is dead, at a price that is near Full Frame Canon & Nikon DSLR, without this incredible OVF technology, that help framing and shoot in the exact moment. Without lenses. Without any future.

RIP

PS: The NX500 based on the same exact sensor, but at a price competitive with the Sony A6000, is an incredibly great camera (as the sony!). This is *NOT* against Samsung or it's sensor, it's against crazy pricing of NX1, and arrogant behavior of Samsung that think it could compete with full frames without any lenses (and even with that, 28MP in APS-C size is a problem in itself in terms of noise and lens real-world resolution, the only thing perfectly resolved is sensor noise ,even at base ISO!).

is it because Samsung stopped official sells channel to make NX1 price higher?

I have to say the "Arca Swiss" plate type of mount is a 50-year-old technology. So it is time to have a new design now, but this new "invention" is not the way to go - other than its weakness, it is still old-mount based.

While it is definitely an impressive piece of electronic design, it is not as rigid as I thought to be. Good information, thanks!

OrdinarilyInordinate: Super attractive price. I wish their m43 version were that cheap.

Right, if Tamron is willing to do it, they are able to make it even lighter, cheaper for the m43 if everything is equal.

Composition... would leaving more headroom for airplanes make the pictures looking better?

Poweruser: Why not just get a GoPro?

Because some people think sensor size is a big deal in taking pictures...

Josh SZ: First, congrats to Sony and it seems to be a dream camera to have.
All exciting things aside, I think those concerns of battery life, lack of on-body flash (source for remote flash) and missing of second memory card are valid for professional uses. I believe that is where a “smart vertical grip” can get in play – meaning a grip packing in high capacity batteries, providing the second memory card and adding a flash to trig remote flashes. This way the camera can still be small for traveling and professionals will have what they need for serious work. Necessary for 7RII but for future generations.

This is a solution to add features to a camera system without adding weight/size to the base unit. Who said professional photographers can use only pro cameras? And even A90 may need a grip too.
By the way, also can be integrated into thr grip is GPS since you get extra power from the grip to power the GPS now.
This can be used for all mirror-less cameras and what needed to make it happen is a provision for a high speed grip interface.
