magneto shot: nice. i am doing film lately. https://slate.adobe.com/cp/5Q3ON/
so did i missed another upgrade?

thanks for the compliments guys. @bernardly thanks for the add. @thermidor it is :-) try using those porta/fuji 400 h if ur want amazing skin tones.
@nick seal . hmm yeah i have that whole VSCO set, but frankly its super frustrating trying to get the film look. VSCO tries its best. In the end i decided to let digital be at its best (Clean, commerical, look) and film for life and portrait stuffs.

The court finds google guilty for submitting a general drawing of a folding camera. Try putting up any folding camera design and it would look like a patent infringement.

fatdeeman: Apple accounts for about 17% of smartphones.....why do these companies keep doing it? Is it because their own designers only use Apple?

because its common sense.
17% is better than 1% of x android model A, 2% of y android model B, each with diff lens and setup. Android % only matters when u add them up, not per model. There is no phone per model that is higher than iphone in use.

congratulations. DOA, dead on announcement.
Canon need a new team of management that believes and listens to DATA.

- Market DATA says, mobile phone has replaced puny sensors cameras, so dont venture into it.
- Flickr's DATA says - iphone is one of the top uploaders. Tht also means compact cams tht have no noticable picture quality improvement over mobile phones are no longer used.
- GOPRO DATA says - if you want to sell puny sensors, put it into some crazy casing and out of the world wide angle because most dlsrs and phones wont have these
- HOLGA DATA says - u need hype, put tht small sensor into something that ppl used to associate with fun
- CASIO TR says - sell sexy and plastic skins.
- Human behavioral DATA says - an average person only have 2 hands. the phones are getting bigger so there is no place to bring along a darn compact

learn from nikon's mistake of nikon 1.

yup professional photographers are earning more and more so the price is just about right for pros to earn. one of the best wedding photographer in my country just needed to do 8 weddings to cover this cost.
I should notify him in case he isnt aware of this, not very sure if he is part of the "audience of professional photographers" because he is still using a paltry D4 with 16 mp.

On Connect post Apple iPhone 6s Plus camera review (161 comments in total)

so reading the comments below, seeing same ppl repeating hate comments. the conclusion is, apple is still king.
I guess they didnt need to upgrade the camera, ios camera is the king of mobile photography, its intuitiveness, ease of use and the amazing-get-it-right is something android been trying very hard with no success so far.

amazing how many steps in to offer hindsight and "told u so" when a multi billion company decided to strike off one of its products.
maybe some need to inspect their own "successful" lives and offer self insight.

Barry1234: I work for a photo-retailer and I can tell you that NO ONE is buying cameras, Samsung or otherwise. The cellphone has pretty much killed the market for compacts and people are so stupidly brand loyal that convincing them to switch to another product is always difficult, even if that product is far superior to the competition. The NX-1 is an excellent camera, if it had a Nikon sticker on it it would sell like hot-cakes.

well looks like we have to take our hats off to fuji and sony for making switching over a norm.

Zeisschen: I really don't know what people hang out on this forum, but for sure the majority has obviously no sense for quality products and their price.

Nobody ever touched or used a Leica, but the rant about price goes on and on on every Leica thread...

its not the leica camera that is superior...its the leica photographer. almost...all photog that reaches a certain level of guru and yoda level will get a leica, if not just to fuel their insane thirst for inspiration and becoming one with the tool.

GodSpeaks: Well I see the trolls are out in force today. I am also willing to bet that 99+% of the naysayers couldn't afford this camera anyway.

Not to worry folks, it's a Leica, aimed at and for those that can appreciate Leica, and like the opening blurb says, have high credit limits.

but but but, kidding man, i use the Bessa R3m with the legendary 50 f1 noct too, love it.

In reply to:

magneto shot: so whats the sensor size? 16 small sensor does not make one big sensor.
are we still not done with crappy fake shallow dof?

xiao fei
an example would be honor 6x. it has 2 camera, and claim to be able to do f0.95. since it has 2 camera, one can do the "out of focus" and the other the actual subject. The result = horrendous.

its just not practical. There is no replacement for sensor size when it comes to bokeh and dof. Just as digital zoom is no replacement for optical zoom

on a small sensor no way. It will end up as per the first post mentioned, fake bokeh which looks very very fake.
Just because one can google something, doesnt mean he understand a hoot about what is proposed.

A small sensor for eg, what do u think is the effective telephoto to get even a bit of shallow dof. Maybe u stand 3 meters a way u zoom 800mm into the eye on a 1/2.4 sensor ? now explain how u stitch it in "brenizer". Dont be ignorant, its possible in DSLR because the sensor is big enuf to sitch a telephoto lens + wide in a practical way. DUH.

u cant get ANY shallow dof with a small sensor period, unless u shoot macro.
Brenizer method has nothing to do with shallow dof.
Large apertue means nothing in small sensor. U got f1.8 on mobile now, do u see any shallow dof vs a FF 1.8 on say a 3 meter portrait? ZERO.
