Ditching a DSLR for this?
I don't think so.
Looks and functionality aside, I'll entertain the merits of your "megapixels" comment; however, there is so much missing from this (decent flash, multiple lens configurations, etc.) there is no way a serious photographer would replace their SLR with it.

If you were just using extremely dry humor, I retract my rebuttal.

Regardless, there's definitely a market for it. I'm just not impressed, especially given the price.

If he wanted to sell something that ugly and kludgy he went after the wrong crowd. Should have started with the Android model...

I am jesting about the DSLR comment. Although if it did act as battery pack, and the camera is good (like 299 good) then it's a good idea & then I could imagine people buying it. I'd be interested to know which camera brand provided the gubbins for this.

200 quid for this? Jesus, no thanks.

Just bought two Nikkor lenses the 70-300 and the 28-100 for half this for my D90 It did come with an F65 SLR and bag full of random accessories too xD.

I can never get use to tiny crappy phone cameras or point n shoot cameras, give me a backpack full of lenses and a DSLR body and I'm all set . Phones are so poor in low light its laughable.

I personally place the ulgy bling version right up there with those gold plated and diamond encrusted iPhones you can buy.

Not that the guy doesn't have talent but this is really not good. Maybe he should stick to his day job

They are definitely not using a quality sensor since they're not even using one at all. This is the version without a built in camera, it's just a lense. For 299$ you get a bad plastic keyboard and probably functionless lense. (I wonder how expensive the version with an actual camera in it will be!)

if these hipsters ruled the world we'd still be listening to music on vinyl records, forget touch screen phones. Soooo needy, always have to stand out.

Vinyl sounds way better than a CD recording though, has more bass and depth to it. I've got vinyls in my collection 60+ years old Dixeland Jazz Albums etc they play perfectly. I have CD's from 1990 what have basically flaked away.
