  • WRT the protruding lens: Not having one in hand, I can only guess, but my guess would be a ferritic stainless steel that a magnet might stick to. given its precise alignment with the camera module...

  • iPhoto is being reworked into a more robust photo editing app replacing Aperture and available on both iOS and OSX. Perhaps that will be the key to future addition of RAW.

  • The iPhone isn't a niche camera, so it isn't going to have niche features, and there won't be a tradeoff of a "bump" for a camera. They'll get OIS when they or Sony can design it to the thickness...

  • I'm not sure purchasing for "bargains" ever really makes much sense. I preordered the 70-300 because "it has a job to do" on my V1 that might end up being more satisfactory than the Tamron 150-600 ...
  • It's a safe bet that it doesn't sell even at the rate of the low end Nokias, and certainly magnitudes behind sales of iPhones and Galaxies.

    Ultimately, niche smartphones with flagship camera...

  • I have a friend that is a Nikon user, and I will probably pass my V1 down to her granddaughter (near 7) if a V3 comes out. If there is a replacement for the FT-1, I'll give her the FT-1 as well. ...
  • You see innovation as a plethora of features and i/o spread across many, many different devices. I see you as much more fascinated with the activity you have with your smartphone than the average....

  • The reason that iOS generally is the first in these accessories is that there are 100's of millions of devices that are physically compatible; less risk for the developer, though even Motrr was...

  • I was thinking about a similar gimbal system when the Sony QX100 was announced. A 1 inch sensor system of this nature would be a good fit; better if remote zoom was enabled. I would hope that Sony...

  • "For the best workflow, we are working with FiLMiC Pro to incorporate a 1.33x anamorphic de-squeeze in their first quarter 2014 release for full in-app compatibility with the Anamorphic...

  • Interesting that you appear to be the first to bash the iPhone in any thread, clearly without any provocation.

    Says something about your state of mind.

    Enjoy your phone, as I will enjoy mine.

  • While not touted nor supported yet in iOS by Apple (AFAIK), OpenCL is supported by ARM on the 64 bit ARMv8 architecture. In theory, OpenCL would enable the GPU's to process numeric data, just as...

  • @PicOne.

    "Is this about immediate gratification vs. ultimate quality?

    More like "immediate feedback leads to a higher level of ultimate quality".

  • Perhaps these leading edge products require leading edge developers and users to break out from the current workflow conventions.

    I'm one of those that bought the "toy" iPad Air. I loaded...

  • Give it a rest.

    The iPhone is thinner with no camera protrusion., hence a smaller lens module. That's a design decision that I agree with.

    The fact that Apple gets such a high level of IQ out...

  • In the "Cons" under the video tests:

    Walking movements remain uncorrected by the video stabilization

    Over-correction of video stabilization when steadied (on a tripod).
