LasVegasPhotographer: As a Professional Photographer for the last 8 years I can admit that I've had my Nokia 808 Pureview a month now (also an Apple user for almost 10 years) that the 808 Pureview is the best piece of tech not only of 2012 but for the last 5 years. I shoot professionally with a Canon 5D mk 2, and that the images from my phone in my pocket can match (or even better) the $3500+ camera & L series lens i use in some situations is truly mind blowing. Add to that the Free Maps & Class leading Offline Navigation, plus digital stereo sound recording at up to 140db and you have a handheld device that no phone can match in imaging or sound quality, and no camera can match in ease of use, features, phone & internet capabilities. What other Camera can you send emails on or Navigate you at no charge to over 70+ countries around the globe without a sim card even inserted.

It's a shame that Apple's Marketing has most people brainwashed into needing worthless App's.

Best Purchase i've made in years!!

LasvegasPhotographer that is a load of crap. The Pureview has a tiny sensor and can not come close to the quality of a full frame sensor purely because technilogical limitations.
If you don't believe me have a look at this comparison from dpreview
That's a clear difference in noise levels. I'm not saying that it isn't a great achievement but if you say it is better than a 5DmkII with L lens you need new glasses or a better monitor.
What do you mean with up to 140dB recording. 140dBa would leave you with bleeding ears. I doubt it is 140 dB dynamic range which is only achieved with top end studio equipment. Most consumer audio equipment is only 80 to 100 dB.

philo123: So Guys Nikon has put a 36MP FF sensor in the D800 and just a 16MP in the D4 and which model is aimed at the pros? Hmmm.....Smells of marketing hype to me for the prosumer/enthusiast market. Looking at the replies here it looks like a good picture has yet to be taken because we've never had a 36MP sensor. Keep your money in your pockets and buy good glass as that's what really counts.

I completely disagree with that. With a sensor with this many pixels the quality of the lenses you put on it is more important than ever or you will be wasting the money you spend on the body. If the image that is projected on the sensor is crap it doesn't matter how good your camera body is. The result is very very poor. We will see a lot of "my D800 is soft" posts in the coming months.

IcyVeins: It appears Canon is only interested in the really high end and the really low end, nothing in the middle. Oh well...

A completely unfounded conclusion. Because CW didn't mention the 60D in the interview doesn't mean Canon is going to abandon the xxD series.
People please think before you post something.

yuyucheu: I'm still didn't know what the 1DX is more progress than 1D or 1Ds or 5D II? Or I just can think 1D X may more price the other modle?

Ren, do some reading about cameras and you will find that it is more likely that you are the problem and not the camera.
