That is an insane price point - good job Google.
I hope this sells really, really well.
Preordered my new camera this morning Now I have to wait a month lol Selling off my bulky canon gear and going mirrorless.
What'd you end up going with?
My camera gear is so dusty - I think it might be time to go out and take some pictures.
Love my Sony RX100! Super portable and takes great shots due to it's massive sensor. Got it as an open box item at BB super cheap.
Plan on taking some shots this weekend with the G2 to give it a road test.
Going with the newly announced Fuji X-E2. They finally added phase detection to the interchangable lense X series so the focus time should be MUCH improved.

Ineed a large sensor for your RX100 Bread, definitely helps

If the G1X was smaller, I'd probably go with it. Sony is just so much more compact, albeit, not the best to hold (slippery as all get out).
If I had the money, this would be the one.
Indeed, the RX1 and the new A7 and A7r are all beasts for their size. Sony is doing great work in their bodies, but their lens lineup leaves a lot to be desired. The new Zeiss stuff is meh and overpriced. I plan on getting the 55-200 long zoom for the Fuji and then one semi-wide prime. After that I want to get a couple of adapters and old manual focus lenses to have some fun with
WOW! Google is now over $1,000 per share.
Why go mirrorless? Any advantage other than size?
Also, whatcha got?
No advantages other than size really. The reason I went with the Fuji series is they are APS-C sized instead of micro 4/3rd. Just tired of carrying 50lbs of camera gear with me on trips. What I have now?
Canon 60D with 2 extra batteries and a battery grip
Tamron 28-75 f/2.8
Canon 70-200 f/2.8L
Canon 50 f/1.8
and a Canon Speedlite 580EX II
What I want and have pre-ordered:
Fuji 18mm f/1.4
Fuji 55-200 OIS
Probably will order another prime...maybe the Fuji 35mm?
Very good price point. Way to go Google. So guessing the 32GB version as $399. Now only if they learned from mistakes and actually have them in stock.
Shame they couldn't get it on Verizon. Something's up there, and it's got nothing to do with carrier control since they have other phones on their network that aren't software controlled by Verizon like the iPhone and any Windows phone. No, a little more to the situation, and I think it has a lot to do with Motorola's significant presence on Verizon. There are some shenanigans.
LG G2 is $599 for 32GB model. I'd have to ask myself if I'd pay an extra $200 for a bigger screen, a bit better camera, significantly bigger battery and a few other upgraded specs and give up stock AOSP and (almost certain) tap and pay NFC. Or since I already spent that, get $200 back if I had to give up those extra features.
That's a hard choice to make. Both are excellent choices, but at this point I think I did good by going with the G2.
Miss paying with my phone though. Only feature I miss on the G2.
PM me what you'd like for the 70-200, that's even if you're looking to part out. L glass may be a bit out of range for my current budget. Going broke fast, partially because of new phones and other shiny things.
EDIT: Attachments for size difference in equipment.
Has Verizon passed the LTE N7 yet?
Not that I've heard
Nope, the fcc was shutdown during the government shutdown, so Verizon didn't exactly have extra motivation to get it done.
No chance of sideloading Wallet even with root?
Anyone have any experience with wireless chargers? Looks like no local stores carry any so I'll have to go with Amazon. Going with either the LG or Nokia one, probably which ever is cheaper. Bummed the Palm one I got a while back to use for my S3 isn't Qi compatible.
gday again. see? I'm back, even.
How ya doin pal? Looking at an upgrade yet? Doubtful anything more will be released for Verizon for the rest of the year.
How nice is this going to be, omg.
Wallet now installs on just about every phone. Sideloading won't help now because it checks your device against the list of accepted devices in order to activate tap to pay. Those days seem to be over.
Is it all about secure element issues? Doesn't bother me, used it a couple times and was never faster than swiping a debit card.
That will be some of it since not all devices come with one on board anymore, but also carrier politics that we Gnex vets know all too well.
Yeah. But won't that change the camera?
Now for something completely different.
I've had my Escape for just about 2 years. It has now shut off on me 3 times, technically four. The first time I was at a red light, it turned green so off I went and then my car stalled. The second time I was down by the mall with no traffic and it stalled again so I just pulled into the mall. The third time was today, red light situation again. Now because of the time of day and the 'T' I was at I had to immediately start it again, which it did, but then shut right back off. So that would be 4. I was half way thru the intersection, started again and everything was fine. Except my light was now red and the turning traffic wouldn't let me go. No big deal really. I get to work and Google it. One website is used by the NHSTA and is for people to share their vehicle problems. My problem had a long list. Another link was for Edmunds. Someone described my problem in the forum. A long response to the question was it could be a camshaft position sensor, a crankshaft position sensor or a throttle box. No one seems to be able to get a code for the problem because as soon as you start the vehicle back up it is as if nothing ever happened.
It will have to wait till Monday to see if something can be done.
Well, Darling Bride & I did something today that we have never done before.
We went ZIP LINING!
Yep, zip lines, strung out through the north Tennessee forest, just waiting for us. So off through the woods we zipped. The weather was perfect. And you know what? It was FUN!
So if you have a chance to do that, the Chief recommends it
