On article ZTE Axon 7 features 20MP Samsung ISOCELL sensor (16 comments in total)
In reply to:

zodiacfml: Not impressed. These are just S7 specs except for the stereo speakers and the pricing is not cheap, similar to Huawei.

Hmm, seem I have overestimated the price drop of the S7 which should be around $500 by now.

In reply to:

coldcut: In the studio scene, the sharpness of the Sigma is just.. unreal! Makes even the Leica look a bit unsharp.
But if looking at processing a couple of hundred Raw files with the sigma software, I would probably be very, very frustrated.
I wonder if its just generally bad programming practices, the wrong mathematical approach when converting the sensor data, ignorance how to code efficient software or something else that is the problem?

I'm a fan of Sigma but image quality for me should have minimum amount of noise and artifacts in reasonably good light. They don't have to push it too much; resolution is not everything as I'm happy with my 4.7MP images.

They have to redo this using a split-prism three sensor camera.

On article Sony Xperia XA Ultra comes with 16MP OIS front cam (25 comments in total)

A large device with a mid range parts, including the battery. The latest Moto G has a slightly larger capacity.

Good choice of hardware and still the stock Android. If not for me lusting AMOLED screens recently, I'd buy this in a heartbeat.

On article Day at the track: Canon EOS-1D X Mark II samples (77 comments in total)

Canon will be happy with you guys as you took the liberty to shoot RAW and edit them to good taste.
I would like to see the OOC JPEGs though.

On article Benchmark Performance: Nikon D810 review (1941 comments in total)

"Second, Nikon implemented ISO 64 on the D810 by actually extending the saturation capacity of pixels (we're not sure how) relative to ISO 100"

I hope someone has an answer here as I a really wonder why modern cameras has lost "true" and low ISO settings. Is it because of tuning to higher sensitivities?

I'd rather have this camera feature than cleaner files at high sensitivities.

I respect their "opinion" on Apple products.

Clarity. Wow. The only smaller format camera close to your Phase One IQ180.
How fast does Pixel Shift take an image?

LOL! Old sensor becomes a tradition. Probably a huge inventory of this sensor.
In fairness, the JPEGS are good in terms of color and WB.

I will be very interested for such a camera from another maker such as Ricoh, if it has a large, high quality viewfinder probably similar or better than is found in the Leica SL while the cost and space savings should be apparent.

In reply to:

Max Iso: Canon needs to bit the bullet and enter the smart phone arena. Replace compacts with smart phones and call it a day, large sensor ILC will continue to hold it's own space.

I was thinking the same while reading it. Though I have mentioned the same thing many times before, right now it feels they're running out of time as Samsung and other makers are able to make fast lenses for their latest smartphones.

Though these new, fast lenses still has room for improvement (CA, distortion, sharpness), the quality is enough for most smartphone people. Or maybe, there is still value in improving the low light performance of the devices where Canon or Nikon can head to while providing the best jpeg processing available.

In reply to:

Siobhan A: No surprise.
Nikon has for many years beaten Sony using Nikon, Sony or Toshiba sensors.
The D7200, D7100, D5500, D5300 and others were better than the A6000 (which had banding issues too). In fact, several camera makers including Samsung made better performing cameras.
This is just a continuation of that trend.

Of course Nikon makes cameras for Photographers while Sony makes electronic devices for gear heads.

his comment is justified.
there's so much wrong in the OP that he didn't bothered to explain.

On article Huawei clarifies Leica-involvement in P9 camera design (54 comments in total)

Nope. I checked a studio comparison between this and a Samsung S7. Though the Sammy has more chromatic aberration and distortion, it sports an f1.7 aperture versus the f2.2 in this Huawei.

I went through all the photos and the users appear to be having fun using the D5 based on the composition and settings. The image quality is a bit of letdown compared to existing High DR cameras. Going back, the images are entertaining and worth it.

Greg VdB: Ok ok, we get it, iFixit is a *great* website! :-) (fourth link to them in a month...)

In case you look for other interesting material to post, please take a look at LensTip - the most comprehensive lens test database I know. For instance, a few days ago, they published their review of the Tamron SP 85mm:
http://www.lenstip.com/index.php?test=obiektywu&test_ob=472

It is amazing how I forgot those times when DPR used to do lens reviews! I missed using the lens tool, comparing two lenses in a similar aperture and focal length.
