A number of design elements remind me of a TLR or MF slr. The WLF, knobs for the strap etc.

8x zoom lens I guess
Frankly, I don't see why phone makers haven't been able to throw an 8x zoom in there. Like THIS Panasonic Lumix DMC-XS1 / F5 / FS50 | PhotographyBLOG new Panasonic....I still say add a telephone to a good camera instead of a camera to a phone. I will NEVER buy a smart phone..... I just don't need one. But if someone shoves a phone into a good camera, I'll definitely buy one. (Obviously for me cameras are more important than email or texting or searching.)

But shame on Panasonic for naming a camera XS1 when there is already a Fuji named X-S1. Maybe I'll try calling a camera store tomorrow and ask them when they plan on getting the X-S1 in the shop (when realistically they won't get either one of them).

kudos to Canon for trying something different. They and Nikon may be the only ones left not re-hashing retro styles these days. Funny.
