Sokrates' saying ...
kff: Nikon followed Apple ...
I think that Sakar had a few technical innovation, but Nikon stopped its by lawsuit in the style of Apple
In this case, the technical innovation - better and cheap Android Camera ... and it is nonsense to do with another new lens mount ... and What is Nikon doing ... They prevent someone to do cameras better and slowing technological development ... but there is Samsung Galaxy NX ... :)
Nikon followed Apple ...
if we can prepare function like composed macro picture from a few expositions then it would be interesting ... because no one it doesn't make similar sw in the camera , only there are macro profesionals with specialized hw+sw.
OK, some tripod would be necessary for it :)
Treeshade: To help lazy readers:
By R Butler:The GR, X100S, Coolpix A, Sigma DPMs and possibly the Canon G1X would fall into a more specialist class, but we're probably not going to have a chance to cover those, this time 'round.
By Andy Westlake:We've reviewed most of those cameras in detail. The only ones missing are the Sigma DP Merrills (which we struggle to recommend for most users, as they're highly reliant on Sigma Photo Pro for Raw conversion, which can produce great output but is painfully slow and clunky), and the Leica X2, which is pretty much eclipsed by the X100S.
If you're buying in this class, I'd say the choice looks pretty simple. Pick whether you want a 35mm-equiv or 28mm-equiv lens. If 28mm, buy the GR, unless you have Nikon accessories which you can (and will) use with the Coolpix A. If 35mm, buy the X100S, unless you have a really good reason to pick the RX1.
Sony's additional cameras for smartphones will have follower with APS-C ... why not Google with ... ?
Sigma DP Merrills can be a good change for film photographers ... :)In the image quality is a first of ... maybe a new Ricoh GXR will come ... with built wi-fi, GPS and Android in the range APS-C to MF or it will make Google with RAW format in the Android:)
Or some new accesories for Wacom: http://cintiqcompanion.wacom.com/en/
kadardr: Nikon A? Ricoh GR?
Yes, that are SUPERB compact cameras ... but someone have to make zoom by going :)
kff: Google has a concept to the future :http://www.google.com/nikcollection/products/analog-efex-pro/
and a first Android was developed for cameras ...
and for some jobs are better servers:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/OpenPOWER_Consortium
and Adobe would be out of game without he has Linux version sw

Artistico: I wonder when Nokia will realise that they have to go Android to get more sales, though. The main reason they are losing market shares is first hanging onto the archaic Symbian platform and then going Windows Mobile at a time when all the other major players were under the Android umbrella or iOS. Result: No one bothers making apps for Windows Mobile because the market is too small to be worth the effort. In this day and age, it doesn't matter how good your phone's camera is if you cannot get the apps you are used to on your new phone.
I'd be happy to get a Nokia again, as I really like their cameras and having one would be like bringing a cheapish compact everywhere - but only if they switch to Android. Otherwise it's too much of a compromise for me, and for many others.
Microsoft are offering clouds on the Linux, it means that MS is in the time changes ... if WP won't have succes then MS can make SW for Android and iOS for their server solutions (and really they do it) and it can contain mobile devices with a good camera system (during the time on the Android which is for MS profitable)
for good image quality does not make sense to use maximum zoom - that's what it in reality is, about technology for 5MPix result ...
Would they add Ricoh GR and GW-3 to Lens Profile Support in the Camera Raw ?
Superb picture ... !!!
Is possible to add a good EVF and an adapter for Pentax accesories like flash, remote control etc. ?
Eye-Fi ... better would be a lifeview and data transfer by build or external wi-fi adapter which would recieve GPS data to the exif info of picture ...
but well done firmware :)
Would we get super macro function by composed picture of several picures (10-20) with driven shift focus point for sharp object in the nice bokeh background taken on the tripod ... ?
Is it really an economical way to develop that body with other type sensor ?
Snapseed is an interesting but so much more interesting is Nik Software Collection of filters such Silver and Color Efex Pro, HDR, Viveza etc. http://www.niksoftware.com/nikcollection/usa/intro.html
Maybe it would bring new serevers developed by OpenPower Consortium: http://www-03.ibm.com/press/us/en/pressrelease/41684.wss
and next step would be Adobe will make Photoshop CC for Linux ... a really running on the server side = :)
APS-C sensor would have a sense ... but it is an elegant follower for Ricoh GXR camera concept :)
I have bought Ricoh GR this week, but Galaxy NX is so sexy (Android + a big display + connectivity) ... If they'll make a modular system with a possibility to change senzor I would buy instead of a new comming Pentax Ricoh GXR because I like: Android + a big display + connectivity.What a pity ! For Galaxy NX isn't an AF adapter for Pentax lenses ... :(
Pentax makes wonderful and useful cameras ...
The way is a full wi-fi remote control and LifeView not Eye-fi SD card ... see Samsung NX300 ... what a pity - Samsung doesn't have AF adapter for Pentax lenses !!! And next a big value of NX ... The code of the Samsung NX mirrorless cameras is now available as open source .... and it is a very wise !!!
