Is this subscription for mobile or desktop (LR plugin)? The article is mainly about mobile before the subscription part, so it isn't that clear.

Pretty expensive for mobile, given that you can own every mobile preset (in the right bundles) for about $20 one time .

For desktop, it seems like a steal, though, given that just one film pack is $60 to own. and there are 8+ total.

Some people are theorizing that it might just be bulk uploads for backup that are propelling the iPhone numbers. But if you compare yesterday's figures with the most popular phone and DSLR, Iphone 6 users uploaded 41 pics on average and Canon 5D3 users uploaded 37 pics on average. Pretty similar daily activity.

There were over 1.6 million people combined uploading photos from just the 4 iPhone 6/s models. That is pretty crazy!

CE3: Not surprising, but a bit surprised mirrorless cameras were such a small percentage. I'm on Flickr and see mirrorless shots all the time. I guess I'm in a bubble, or it's just a testament to how massive the site is.

On an unrelated note, I've never visited the Flickr blog until today. I love the design and layout!

Flickr has problems with their camera classifications outside of major DSLRs. So I don't think very many actual mirrorless cameras are being counted.

I think I'd take a $900 Voigtlander 50mm f1.1 any day.

zeratulmrye: Don't know about this one but the first generation is actually a rebranded mitakon 50 0.95

They claim all their lenses are made in Germany, so it's probably not a simple rebadge.

SimenO1: A 2,87mm f/2,8 lens that equals a 20mm full frame lens also equals f/19,5 in full frame terms. This is a ridiculous miss on the claimed target. A fraud!

The claimed target? You mean people that are probably using a gopro now?

Why would anyone care?

Please teach me more about RAW.

Because they might fit this group: "Aimed at cavers, campers and those who enjoy a night safari"

noflashplease: Do you really want to approach a lion with a 20mm equivalent lens? Apparently, Casio photographers have the audacity to sneak up on a lion at night. I'm impressed. What's next? A fisheye lens attachment for close-up photos of grizzly bears?

To be entirely serious, it's nice to see something different and far more original than yet another GoPro clone. Casio is being clever and that's just what a camera company needs to survive in the smartphone era.

You can clearly see that the camera detaches from the control unit. I think you leave the camera out and wait for something to come close.

sapporodan: What ever happened to their MFT camera? Last I know they released a hand full of cameras, the build quality was terrible and it vanished!.
Hopefully the release of the YI-M1 will make them try again. God knows we need some cheap MFT cameras to counter the overpriced stuff recently released from Panoly.

Overpriced stuff like the 2016 model GX85 that does stabilized 4k, has a viewfinder and is selling with 2 nice lenses and a $100 gift card for under $700?

In reply to:

Gundamit: Maybe your next "Gear of the Year" award should be bigger pants rather than a smaller camera? Your image might suffer, but not the ones you are capturing. That would be the true oddball choice. 😀

Maybe a donkey with saddle bags for 2018?

Considering it has the sensor from 1.5 year old Sony Xperia and Motorola phones, I don't think we should expect anything special.

IamJF: 1300 employees for that few products... thats steep.

That's what I thought. They sell a ton of units, but with 1300 employees, the costs must be massive. No wonder they have profit issues.

Jefftan: Even this $500 camera, sensor IQ better than $2000 E-M1 II
I don't know what people think.

I agree there is some interesting lens in MFT system
to me is the small and cheap telephoto pancake Lumix 35-100 mm F4-5.6

but just buy he cheapest and lightest body to use these lens like GF7 ,E-M10 II . E-PL8...etc
Buying heavy and expensive MFT make no sense to me
but that is your money

It's just a daft comparison. The E-M1 II is pro build, weather sealed, 18fps 4k video, etc. It's got higher end specs than an X-T2, so I don't know why you compare it to a little $500 camera. Someone who could be happy with the specs and performance of this XA10 would never be shopping for an E-M1 II anyway.

This is comparable to the E-PL8 at best.

P.S. The image quality is not much different vs 16MP fuji, maybe 1/2 a stop at best, and zero stops for DR.

tkbslc: They really need a pancake zoom if they want this to be attractive. Sure the camera is small, pretty and cheap, but then it has a kit lens that would be more at home on a DSLR. If they had a lens like the Panasonic 12-32 to put on it, it would be a really nice setup.

Either that, or bundle it with the 27mm f2.8 pancake.

You hate to have to open and close it? It's the same action you would use to zoom, you just twist the zoom ring. Do you find changing focal lengths inconvenient?

There are other lenses like the 14-42 EZ from Olympus (And 16-50 from Sony and Samsung) that have power zooms and extend when you power on the camera. So that's an option.

Or I guess if you really can't stand zoom rings, there is always a prime lens.

Ridiculous comment that ignores all other aspects of camera performance.

D200_4me: My iPhone still works fine. ;-) Oh and don't worry about my iPhone's camera quality. I use a real camera for anything I consider worth capturing. I use my phone for the occasional snapshot of work-related stuff and also a random family snap now and then. Suffice it to say it wouldn't be a disaster if my phone's camera quit working.

Cool story, bro.

I'm surprised they would even have 200 employees total.

Aroart: Sony, put a touch me screen and a bit of a grip and you would make alot more people happy.. oh and give it a $699 price tag... screw the view finder.. Oh wait, Panasonic just gave us that..

If you just put a 1" sensor in an LX100 as-is, you'd have a 29-90mm equivalent. (It is 10.9-34mm actual, so with a 2.7x crop factor..)

I'm sure with the smaller sensor they could extend that a bit on either end. I'd love 24-135mm equiv, f2-2.8 personally, based on my time with a Canon 60D and 15-85mm combo.
