I bet it would look really cool to attach 2 or 3 of these lenses to a 10" tablet. It would impress a lot of people, don't you think?
Looks like CGI..... a computer generated model. The entire camera could easily be a CG model. Heck, I could make a better rendering myself.
Wide-angle-lens panoramas are mostly useless unless you're into goofy art. Image distortions are beyond ridiculous. Plain silly.
ENicolas: Hey - it's the same price as Paintshop Pro with only half the features!
Paintshop Pro 9 was the most intuitive, easiest, most customizable image editor ever. Simply wonderful to use. By version 11 the new owners screwed everything up. Not sure what it's morphed into now, but I doubt it's anything like it used to be.
There's no monthly subscription fee? LOL! That's like saying "My new restaurant offers fresh pizza and great pies, and best of all, my waiters won't beat you up!"
Hehe. On a 1 to 10 funny scale I give this one an 8.2.
I absolutely love the idea of "very short-range means of exchanging data". Excellent! No more damn cables to mess with and misplace.
Illegal to climb that pyramid? If I couldn't climb it there'd be no reason for me to even go there. And just how are my soft boots going to damage that granite? And what's that nonsense about injuries? Just post a sign "CLIMBING THIS PYRAMID IS EXTREMELY DANGEROUS - CLIMB AT YOUR OWN RISK". Simple. And if stupid people die on it... so what! Not like we have a shortage of stupids.
Here we go again! "Wireless Image Transfer to smartphones and tablets" ---BUT CAN IT DO WIRELESS TRANSFER TO A PC LAPTOP ????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Let me get this straight - the wi-fi can connect to " iOS and Android smartphones and tablets" but not to a regular pc laptop? Are you kidding me?
So this needs an external computer to work? Samsung will eat them for lunch.
You can cover that red mark with a black felt tip pen. You can thank me for this priceless advice by sending me huge bags of money.
From a purely artistic point of view this was impressive and fun. But the question that comes to mind is this: Do you really want to have reality distorted so much? It may be good for a quick thrill but is it good for the spirit, good for the soul and good for the historical memories we leave behind?
Oh, please, gimme a break. That's a very simple shot to pull off.
I've been saying this for years. Basically, if you use a cheap zoom lens on a 24 MP camera your image won't even be as good as a clean 4 MP image.
Aaaaaah.... videos by natural candlelight. Very super cool!
maxnimo: Way too slow. Ideal fps would be 300, but 120fps would be a good start.
sagebrushfire , yes, when you move that hand in front of you it will appear blurry... until your eyes lock on and track it. Then it will be smooth as silk. Do you know why? Because real life is way, way faster than 60 FPS. This is easily seen on a movie screen whenever a camera pans across a landscape or when you watch a moving spaceship... instead of smooth motion you get nauseating choppy jitter.
AliRoust: 24 fps = choppy videos why even bother?
On a related note, my wife is used to the nice, simple washboard and loves the old, classic feel of rubbing those clothes, so why bother with a stupid washing machine!
ryansholl , I'm sorry to hear that you find 120 nauseating as you must be in perpetual pain and suffering since real life is way, way faster than 120 fps. Again, my heart hurts for your terrible pain.
No, I'm not kidding at all. It's so sad to see how many photographers have so little knowledge about any other subject. At 300 fps an image appears like you are looking out of a window at real life in motion. And speaking of impossible... just a while ago 1TB hard drives were impossible, 1GB of ram was impossible, 10 GFLOP cpu's were impossible, and 10Mpixel cameras were impossible.
