On Huawei announces octa-core Honor 6 post (48 comments in total)

Huawei has leaped into the leader's pack with this phone.

With four aspherical lenses and two ED glass lenses, this zoom has some serious stuff inside its barrel. Together with 5 stops OIS and weather resistant, Fujifilm is downright serious about this.

On Fujifilm X-T1 First Impressions Review preview (1657 comments in total)

As expected, superb retention of details at high ISO. The X-T1 is looking more and more like a true thorough bred.

On Fujifilm X-T1 First Impressions Review preview (1657 comments in total)

This is real, even more impressive than all the hype before announcement. The predictive focus tracking makes it the first mirrorless that photographers of sporting events can use as a workhorse, but we have to wait for Fujifilm to come up with good telephoto lens. As a bonus, it looks striking as well.

On Fujifilm teases upcoming SLR-style X system camera article (921 comments in total)

I think this is the first mirrorless camera that the professional photographers can use with confidence on the job, and don't want the heft and bulk of big cameras.

A handstrap for a small camera is much more useful than a built in grip.

limlh: This XQ1 may well turn out to be a pocket Hercules. EXR processor II, hybrid PDAF and CAF, LMO, high definition lcd, all features that are found in the XE2.

A turbo charged X20 in a smaller package.

Except for the sensor size, it has a great set of features, containing some of the innards of the X-E2.

On Fujifilm X-E2 Preview preview (454 comments in total)

Not revolutionary, but a big improvement in functions over the X-E1.

On Panasonic DMC-GM1 preview (639 comments in total)

Who says P&S is dead? The GM1 has given it a new life. All it needs is a collapsible zoom and I can slip it into my pants' pocket.

On Pentax K-3 preview (961 comments in total)

Nothing is mentioned about the rumored multi-pattern wb. If true, this must be the best feature of the k-3.

On iPhone 5s Studio Comparison article (263 comments in total)
In reply to:

KariIceland: The Xperia looks god awful, the others look satisfactory, I own the S2 & I have been using it for a long time, would I get any of these phones? no because the difference is not enough yet for me to warrant spending over 500$ for a new phone.

So is the Samsung S4. They look like coming from the same sensor, watercolor with over-sharpening of edges, just like a normal phone camera.

On iPhone 5s Studio Comparison article (263 comments in total)

I think there is a definite improvement. Image from Iphone 5s looks like it comes from a real camera and not a phone. Nokia Lumia 1020 looks very good as well. Sony Xperia Z and Samsung S4 look terrible.

On Nikon 1 AW1 preview (587 comments in total)

The Nikon 1 is very popular with Asian ladies. The inclusion of this AW1 will widen its appeal, particularly for those active people who want to bring it for their rugged outings.

limlh: A sensible product differentiation for Fujifilm, offering a budget X-series that will compete against the Ricoh GR and Nikon A with the added advantage of interchangeable lens. It looks very nice, but with a Bayer sensor and AA filter, it does not interest me.

I have yet to see smearing in my landscape because I don't use ACR for raw conversion. Anyway, CS5 is my last version of photoshop.

limlh: Canon admits that the sensor may be useful for medical and security purposes. Unlikely to see it in digital camera. I think for sensitivity in digital imaging to take a big step forward, a new base material for sensor like Graphene would be needed. In fact, it may be more practical for sensor makers to use Graphene in their current process than making organic sensor, which Fujifilm is very likely to use in the next iteration of the X-series cameras.

So, Intel is the first one to make Graphene sensor. A smart way to diversify.

Graphene is just the base material. The existing manufacturing process can be used. In fact, Graphene can be as much as 5 times cheaper when mass produced. We would most likely see organic sensor first before Graphene.
