Have a look at the Olympus Tough TG-850, it does what you are looking for: http://www.ephotozine.com/article/olympus-stylus-tough-tg-850-review-24490

The D300s shoots at 7fps, the D7000 6fps, if fast continuous shooting is what you're looking for.

Panasonic Lumix GX7
The GX7 shutter is louder than the OM-D E-M5, and the GM5 is quieter than the E-M5.

Lumix DMC-LX100 and MFT
The short answer is yes, they have the lens elements as close to the sensor as possible, along with the shutter in the lens. Micro Four Thirds cameras have the shutter in front of the sensor, which means you can't put the lens as close to the sensor as they have with the LX100.

I expect the next installment on here will go into some detail on the lens development:

What do you think of the Samsung NX1? It certainly surprised me with the high specification on offer!

28.2 - Megapixel BSI CMOS sensor (APS-C)

AF Tracking
203 phase detection focus points - focuses down to -4EV
ISO25600, expands to ISO51200
Full HD 60p + 4K video
Wi-Fi connectivity
3inch touch screen, 1037k dots (AMOLED)
2,360K dots electronic viewfinder

Plus it's £1299 which seems extremely good.

Gallery Suggestions

Quote: It may be there already and I've not found it, but the ability to search by camera model and/or lens would be useful for people thinking of buying / hiring etc. (I'm sure it's been mentioned before...)

Hi, great idea Smile

You can do this in the various micro-sites, for example if you go to Nikon Nation ( http://www.ephotozine.com/iamnikon ), you can select the camera from the drop down list, under "Nikon Featured Photos"

Another way you can do this is by going to the review of the camera, as there is a "Photographs taken using the Nikon D810" section under "Explore more" at the bottom of reviews and articles about specific cameras, as you can see at the bottom of this: http://www.ephotozine.com/article/nikon-d810-dslr-sample-photos-25856

Sony Alpha A7S
The Sony Alpha A7S has a 12 megapixel full-frame sensor, and some extremely impressive low-light / noise performance, as you can see in our review:


With better out of camera JPEG noise performance than the 16mp FF Nikon Df, and 20mp FF Canon EOS 6D.

What do you think?
Would you go "back" to a 12 megapixel camera if it meant excellent noise performance?

Sony Cyber-Shot DSC H200
25mm is quite wide-angle - this is the 35mm equivalent in film terms - so it would be like using a 25mm wide-angle lens on a film camera or a full-frame camera.

5 layer foveon for colour fidelity in skin tones
People have used UV photography for portraits, to show skin damage caused by the sun:

So the uses could be medical, or could be photographic, as you can get some impressive looking portraits:

Quote from above: "In portrait photos, an infrared photo will result in milky skin portraits and eyes that are brooding and deep black"

What Micro Four Thirds lenses would you like to see next?
The original 14-45mm Panasonic kit lens is a very good performer optically and can be picked up second hand for around £80 - it's a bit larger than the newer kit lenses, but optically very good, with a little bit more zoom.

What Micro Four Thirds lenses would you like to see next?
If you could have any lens developed for Micro Four Thirds, what lens do you think is missing from the range, or what lens do you think would be best for the Micro Four Thirds system (Panasonic / Olympus Micro Four Thirds cameras)...

Wi-Fi on the Samsung cameras is really very good, so if you or your family want to share photos over Wi-Fi to Facebook, or over email, then the Samsung would make a great choice.

Hi Riddick,

Of those I would say, have a look at the SZ3 or WB30F as both have 10x optical zoom lens:

Hope this helps you find a good budget camera,

You could potentially seek out an XD to Compact Flash adapter? But I'm not sure how easy they are to find.

Alternatively does it support plugging in a USB card reader that reads XD memory cards? Or direct USB connection from the camera?

Freelensing with the Olympus Kit lens...
Found this:

Using the MK1 14-42mm Olympus collapsible kit lens, the results look good, and the video explains why the collapsible kit lens is so useful for tilt shift... not sure if the MK2 kit lens will do it too but I can't see why not? Although the MK1 does have the advantage of the front focusing element on the lens.

good reasons?
Pentax and Sony DSLRs feature in camera shake-reduction - so you get this feature with every lens attached. For Nikon and Canon image stabilisation is lens based so you can either get a lens with IS/VR or not.

Pentax are also Weather Resistant (WR) from the Pentax K-50 upwards (not the K-500), and a number of the kit lenses are also WR.

Will there be an X-S2
Hi Kodachrome,

I think the S1 is the nearest to being a premium bridge camera replacement:

Since the X-S1 has regularly been on special offer on Amazon with a much reduced price, I suspect that the camera was slightly overpriced to sell in the numbers Fuji were hoping for,
