joe6pack: "Sony is expected to launch yet an even more impressive superphone."

what was the previous impressive Sony superphone?

"nice" is not "impressive".

ALL their displays suck, either small or big time.
(...and that's a bit of a mystery, in itself...)

Since this is an imaging site that stretched out to mobile devices, image display quality should be paramount.

As such, the word "impressive" should never be used when referring to any of the devices Sony has released until now.

On Canon videos showcase 70D's innovative AF system article (145 comments in total)

If the AF effectively performs as advertised and shown here, this is HUGE.

oselimg: Before you call this lens expensive I suggest anyone to think again. Yes 12.000$ is a lot of money but not much at all if you are investing in a business. And this lens is for business or for hobbyists with loads of spare cash. Put together 200mm, 300mm, 400mm f4 and 500mm, 600mm f5,6 high quality primes in your bag and think about "heavy" and "expensive" again. I'm not going on to practicality issues yet.

oselmg,
No rationalization you may put forward can eclipse the FACT that this lens costs 75% more than the Nikon offer.

Even if we put aside $1,000 to $2,000 as a premium for possible better optical performance over the Nikon, it is still the case that Canon is "telling" us that the innovative in-built teleconverter solution is "worth" $3000 to $4000.

Never has price gouging been so clearly exposed as in this particular lens, I am afraid...

...Now, where did I put that card from those thick-accent, dark-glasses nice gentlemen I met in a parking lot, the other night...What was the outfit name again...?..."Less Kidney 4 Fun"?..."Kidneys'r'Us"...?...Darn, my memory isn't the same it used to be...

PhotoKhan: Wow!...Together with the previous low light samples, these are, indeed, remarkable.

What an incredible day and age where we can get this kind of performance from a $650 DSLR...Paint me impressed.

Get me a 550D. Get me a SL1. Get me 2 pearlescent paint cars, one blue, one red.
...I think I can.

Photophan1986,
Really...? Could your 550 depict pearlescent red and pearlscent blue in OOC Jpegs like in these photos...?...No?...I thought so...

300D! What?

Somebody should write about the weird naming styles of camera makers...

.

It is not innocent.
In a business that anchors their marketing strategies around such subsidiary things as mega-pixels, the confusing naming is in place to preclude novice buyers from understanding which-is-which and what-is-what, allowing volume sellers to push whatever needs to be pushed at any particular moment.

SeeRoy: Terrific to hear that they're made with the "utmost diligence". Certainly preferable to carelessly throwing them together in a haphazard fashion with negligible regard to quality control and utter contempt for potential purchasers, I'd say. Others may disagree.

Marketeers...If we could put them in a dedicated circus, imagine what could be charged for admission.

A brand ripping-off an acronym used by another brand is something that always instills a significant dosage of confidence in the discerning user.

I feel like throwing up...

How can an outfit make something self-destructive like this and not actually press the "Yeah...? So Now Take Warp Speed" button in people's consciences, by having them immediately stop buying any kind of product "restructurors" like these may still want to publish?

Are we all THAT dormant?

(...and, please, don't come up with the "That would only mean reporters would go next" argument because...well...they WILL go next, anyway...)

...As for the project, kudos to Rob Hart for keeping being creative in such a challenging moment in his life and for having the good spirit to ironically prove to me, for the first time, that, yes, mobile photography CAN be significant.

A design it with such a large bezel looks outdated even before it hits the shelves. Of course, if that's the only thing one's looking for then why not stick with Apple, you might say...

On Mobile photographers capture do and don't moments post (32 comments in total)

These are awesome scenes, subjects and personal perspectives.

These may be something to pause-and-look, even appreciate.

These are NOT good photography.

People (especially "Connect" for whom, understandably, theres' no turning back) seem to continuously fail to see that what is happening with the interesting photographs they select to make public is that the only statement they put forward is they are noteworthy IN SPITE of having been taken with a mobile device.

I now officially declare my proposed motto for noteworthy mobile photography:

"Think what these could have been if an actual dedicated camera was used".

Myself, I am anxiously waiting for layoffs of surgeons from hospitals and all surgical interventions to be performed by Rhianna fans, under YouTube instructions tapped in a single central cost-efficient medical directorate, using their iPhones (...and nothing less than iPhones, of course...be serious...).

...It's, like, I almost wish I already had an operable hernia.

PhotoKhan: If it can offer any technical advantages without the "guess-what-color-when-and-how" surreal kaleidoscope amusingly offered by Sigma and hilariously ignored by SigmaFovFans, then, yes, let's see it!

My experience is from seeing some really, REALLY puzzling users samples in the Sigma forum.

It has come to a point where I seriously consider it would be interesting having a scientific study to see if there's any correlation between color blindness and Sigma users (prevalence amongst men is about 8%, women 0,5%).

I do know there are professionals using Sigma cameras. I also do know that are few of them. I especially do not know how troublesome is their workflow, in order to achieve accurate colors.

Saying there's something lacking in Bayer sensors is just a a manifestation of the surreal superiority complex SigFovFans love to pet.

In their quest for intangible "different" qualities they don't even care it doesn't make any sense.

Given the sheer, gigantically overwhelming number of superior, superior output coming out of cameras equipped with those sensors from professionals and amateurs all over the world, it is a bit like saying that pizza lacks savory characteristics.

Typical Apple:

Offering what already exists, disguised as "coolness", to be presented in a KNA by whoever is the new black turtleneck guru in charge, brainwashed audience going "Wooow!", while at the same time having the actual nerve to "patent" that very same already-existing thing, so they can later litigate competitors to their knees, the legal system not even taking notice that they were NOT the "inventors" in the first place.

Anxiously awaiting the coming "Social Mirror Based Image Capture System".

(...what a dirty, dirty little world the IT one turned out to be...)

shigzeo ?: Groceries, apartment complexes, life insurance, cars, shopping centres, electronics, home appliances, shipping, manufacturing, construction arms and more - I can't think of a more boring company to buzz about.

It's like buzzing about grass: "Dude, it's all over the place, everywhere! I wonder what new bit of dirt is going to get some this time? Will it be green?"

Seriously, Samsung do everything. I can't think of a reason to get excited by such an unfocused hodgepodge.

You forgot squeezing apples into juice.

Hmmm...strangely, I don't feel that the samples have that "Olympus color tone" quality to them but rather the "Panasonic" one.
