Considering that smartphones have already killed Canon's pocket camera sales, they should perhaps view their business differently.
I can't understand how slow and tired Canon has become.
It may shoot 4K, but the chip+optics is great if it resolves more than 600 lines vertical.
So much for specsmanship...
in 1080 resolution only 50i / 60 i video.
This is 2014, Nikon.
Sony will eat those for lunch. The rest will go to Fuji and Canon at the super-zoom range.
Consumer. Which part of that word did you not understand.
Consumer <> Pro.
Pro market will be alive and fragrant in 10, 100 years.
Consumer market changes much faster.
They could solve this by offering GREAT video.
But all of them, including Canon and Sony, have been trying to micro-segment and also protect their precious pro-video segment.
Very good for social media low-res sharing photos and for a camera that is always on you. Unlike that RX100 or that Canon 5d MK II.
Nice, but when it it barely resolves 600 lines over the whole vertical screen area, where you get the stabilization line space from?
Yes, you can stabilize, but you'll be throwing away resolving...
And no memory card slot.
And no USB expansion.
And no way to easily move to/from the iPad documents of all kinds (Apple wants to sell everything via their own store, everything else is done more...

Should not be "SPY on you and read everything you do" app.
They did buy 8500 design patents. Only utility patents were NOT sold, but non-exclusively licensed.
Nokia has NOTHING left in phone business: people, factories, designers, contacts, brands,...
Preview: "you won't be able to view your output in its full high resolution glory"
Yes you can.
The camera is VERY unlikely to resolve even 720 lines.
So even HD ready display would be more...
Six things to expect:
1. All existing WP licensees (except for a couple of small Chinese) will exit WP, leaving MS alone
2. People will grow doubtful towards Nokia devices, now that they are MS...
Accurate touch pen, 3GB RAM and a High-res display. TAKE MY MONEY NOW!
It's a hack. Read about it. Hacks don't need to have any other point, except that they are hacks.
You don't understand hacking, do you?
How about art?
Q: "I'm primarily wondering about this to see if there's going to be a price drop on the phone in the future, in which case I might wait to purchase."
Most likely yes. I estimate a price drop of c....
Photoshop is horrible, requiring license checks and not always working. Cloud based license checks suck big time, unless you are on WiFi all the time.
Snapseed is good for 90% of the stuff you...
Agree, but their OSes will NEVER allow for firmware modifications.
Unless Apple or MS provide raw capture, you are out of luck.
Most can't even save super high quality JPEGs or PNGs.

To the original poster. Buy and Android phone, install custom ROM, select the camera app of your choice. Shoot & Enjoy.
