Interesting - I wonder what price it'll be offered at?

According to their Web Site it's $1299 if you pre-order this month, otherwise $1699. (Delivery appears to be Autumn 2016)

$1,699 less a launch month discount of $400, total $1,299, but price goes up in November.

Don't forget. For cameras $1299 = 1299

For something that looks very much like a P&S camera, that's a pretty savage price point!!

Clever idea, noticed in the film it said small sensors so there will be problems in low light and high dynamic range situations whatever they say.

Maybe it has something to do with the country of origin. ;) They certainly know how to charge high prices for shipping from there so I guess they know how to charge high prices for their "you beaut" ideas too. *yo
