On photo ISO3200_P1000106_WH in dpreview review samples's photo gallery (1 comment in total)

After seeing several ISO 6400 photos, I think ISO 3200 is probably the max you'd want to use.

That's still incredible for a phone though. I'm a fan. May need to get one for myself.

The photo is keepable if you wanted to.

Doesn't sound like much praise, but it's actually a huge compliment.

They call me Hans: I shutter (no pun intended) to think how much the phone that employs this will cost...

It's shudder. No pun for you!

And iPhones already cost a lot! I think that the entire "smart"phone idea has lost a lot of steam, and the camera is one of the few places where a company can try to differentiate itself.

digiart: I may be wrong but it looks like Apple is yet again copying other companies technology...

Actually, I think they're copying another company's idea. Even if Olympus isn't the first to do it, they should be considered the company who brought the idea back from the dead and popularized the idea once again.
Apple hadn't heard of it before, but when they did (because Olympus was in the news...), they thought it was a great idea, and figured out a slightly different method to produce the same thing.

Uh....or something.

GabrielZ: I think the new APS-C sensor is the one heading for the rumored Fujifilm X-Pro2! Here's hoping, looking forward to that camera a lot, as an X-E2 user myself.

Fuji uses Sony sensors. It's just the colour filter that's Fuji's own design.

PerL: Weight 586 g = combined with a m43 Olympus OM-D E-M1, 497g
= 1.080 g

And as comparison:

Nikon 20 1,8G, 357g, combined with a FF Nikon D750, 750g
= 1.107 g

"...lightness is supposed to be the main advantage of a smaller sensor system, right?"

Who said that?

I bought my Fuji X100 because it's small and lightweight. I didn't buy my X-Pro1 because it's lighter and smaller than a DSLR.

Petrogel: If this isn't an April's fools day article, then this will be my new tablet-workstation

Meh, I have edited 16 MP RAWs from Fuji cameras on a 2011 11-inch MBA with an i5 of some sort, and Lightroom runs quite well on it. It's not fast, but it's certainly manageable.

I wonder if the performance of this Atom cpu even matches my 3.5 year old MBA?

sderdiarian: Bad timing, DPR, Samsung releases the S6 in literally a couple of days and you use their outgoing model for a comparison? Makes you appear out of touch, which I know you're certainly not, so why?

There's always something new coming soon.

Don't write any reviews, ever. ;)

Toccata47: This article either turns a blind eye or worse, reflects ignorance of phone photography to such a degree that one must question the authors authority on the subject.

There are an array of sites that have this subject well covered. If dpr can't be an authority in this space it should get out rather than erode brand confidence.

One vote for closing down Connect alongside gear shop.

No crybabies allowed.

Buh-bye.

Cameracist: The sluggish camera startup is not true anymore for Luisa. For Nokia 1520 and 930 there was a complete remake of the Lumia Camera app, which is fast. Try the Denim version for yourselves:)

I have a Nokia 930. Bought it 3 weeks ago. It's not slow at all. Maybe it was, but right now, the app comes up instantly.

Also, the Nokia has a physical shutter button that launches the camera app when pressed. The iPhone is the one that's slow.

NJOceanView: I'm surprised they don't make a true laptop replacement -- huge screen, lots of RAM and more SSD space. It would be great for photographers to use it flat with a sylus for retouching, and would serve as a true alternative to other tablets. But at least it's a true Windows machine for those who like W8.

I'm not sure if this is sarcasm or not, but yeah.......the Surface Pro 3.
