just shoot film guys. i was having a real blast doing it in between digital.check out http://marcuslowphotos.com/2015/09/
GodSpeaks: Well I see the trolls are out in force today. I am also willing to bet that 99+% of the naysayers couldn't afford this camera anyway.
Not to worry folks, it's a Leica, aimed at and for those that can appreciate Leica, and like the opening blurb says, have high credit limits.
but but but, kidding man, i use the Bessa R3m with the legendary 50 f1 noct too, love it.
fujica Texas Leica is back!!!wait....thats medium format on film.sorry guys, false alarm.
magneto shot: so whats the sensor size? 16 small sensor does not make one big sensor.are we still not done with crappy fake shallow dof?
xiao feian example would be honor 6x. it has 2 camera, and claim to be able to do f0.95. since it has 2 camera, one can do the "out of focus" and the other the actual subject. The result = horrendous.
its just not practical. There is no replacement for sensor size when it comes to bokeh and dof. Just as digital zoom is no replacement for optical zoom
on a small sensor no way. It will end up as per the first post mentioned, fake bokeh which looks very very fake. Just because one can google something, doesnt mean he understand a hoot about what is proposed.
A small sensor for eg, what do u think is the effective telephoto to get even a bit of shallow dof. Maybe u stand 3 meters a way u zoom 800mm into the eye on a 1/2.4 sensor ? now explain how u stitch it in "brenizer". Dont be ignorant, its possible in DSLR because the sensor is big enuf to sitch a telephoto lens + wide in a practical way. DUH.
say it to urself :-)
u cant get ANY shallow dof with a small sensor period, unless u shoot macro. Brenizer method has nothing to do with shallow dof.Large apertue means nothing in small sensor. U got f1.8 on mobile now, do u see any shallow dof vs a FF 1.8 on say a 3 meter portrait? ZERO.
xiao fei because of physics, u only get shallow dof if the sensor is large. otherwise you have to fake it like htc, oppo, asus, hua wei...to name a few.
so whats the sensor size? 16 small sensor does not make one big sensor.are we still not done with crappy fake shallow dof?
reading a dozens of comments below and a summary of it :
1. sell your sony camera2. dont sell your sony camera.
Advice :shut up and go shoot more.
Angrymagpie: Given the dearth of reporting on it, I am guessing that there won't be any improvement with battery life? (or actually a step backward, with the more powerful chips)
angrymagpie, get a sony and u will regret. remember all the lags in android after 2 weeks of usage? thats still there regardless of what new phones comes out on the android system
Edward Tsui: Camera size is more important than pixels in terms of photo quality. What is the camera sensor size of iPhone 6S as compared to LG G4 and Samsung's top models?
edward, u need to find a big hole and hide.
vFunct: These iPhones are amazing. They always have the best cameras of all smartphones. I look forward to each generation, as they pretty much wipe out all competitors.
Why is it that all other smartphone vendors are so crappy compared to iPhones? How is it that they're so untalented and unskilled? Like, it took them 3 years to catch up to 64-bit ARM processors that Apple has. They're so much faster than anything out there so far, and they're so power efficient.
You can always tell if a smartphone is crappy if they offer 4k video, but it kills battery life. Only Apple knows how to offer 4k video without destroying battery life.
Honestly, all these other smartphones should just be banned because they're so awful. There is only iPhones, with everything else being crap. You might as well fire anybody that suggest using a non-iPhone for work purposes, because you can tell they're idiots.
iphone at 8mp still beats whatever out there in every android phone even now. maybe the flaw is in android itself, a system that uses java codes that bloats up usage and memory consumption and an open system that ends up servicing way too many buggy apps. So triggering android camera often sucks, lags etc, they do worked beautifully on factory reset, which is pointless.
vFunct: And why is it always Apple that has to lead the industry in innovation? Why can't other vendors do things like 3D touch, Retina displays, Touch IDs, etc.. All of these were invented by Apple first. How is it that other smartphone vendors are so untalented that they couldn't come up with a single original idea first?
It's honestly shameful how bad these other smartphone vendors are.
halc,its not that iphone created the "hardware" innovation, its the iphone make it viable and beautiful in usage and practicality. These features that iphone added, changed the industry, that is at least 100% true and can be seen copied by the "next" android every time and been proven historically.
Just because u have high DPI or touch screen means sqat. these are all failures in industry for mobiles before apple decided to use it correctlly.
magneto shot: Steve jobs once said " we believe Integrated will triumph Fragmented every time." . This has hold true . In every android phone i tried, they totally crapped out in performance, camera and whats not. China companies like Oppo couldnt run a decent android after 2 weeks of use. Sony is always half baked. I am ordering the pink iphone 6s. Glad to be back.
here is how we know ur lying : No lag, no fuss, no problem or bug whatsoever.
every phone has bugs, lags in certain condition and bug. that is why u have updates. but iphone is just way ahead in user experience in terms of the lesser frequency for these bugs in android. i am currently on android oppo r5, i have the m4 aqua and yes i do talk only on phones i owned. i have owned at least 6 android phones and all fall short vs the iphone 5s i had 2 years back.
sony is one of the best producer of mobile camera sensors. unfortunately its also de only mobile producer that often shoot itself on the foot. with each product sony release :1. there an achilles heel built in
take the m4 aqua for example, only a dept of idiots would release a phone which have so little free space left from OEMs countries and doesn't even work with waze. (no solution)
sony xperia tablet Z - worst native holder sony xperia Z - beta rgbw camera with worse results than 3 years old phonesony xperia Z - waterproof but flaps that breaks in 2 weeks sony dslrs - custom hotshoe sony A7r - shutter vibration issues (no solution)sony A7(ii/r/s) - compressed raw files lossy (no solution)sony A99 - quickly forgotten and replaced with E-mount camerasSony E-mount FF (a7/a7r) - low quality mount
i have hence blacklisted sony from all my purchases.

magneto shot: Sony have the tendency to shoot itself on the foot always. when you see any products coming from sony, u can be as sure as the constellations stars in the skies that it will have one stupid flaw. One so significant that it blows your mind to think how Sony could have missed it.
just imagine this. You have a gf, she is a plain jane with say lack of appreciation for charity, fine, not exactly a flaw. Now picture this, you got a supermodel gf that has everything and IQ of 200, but guess what, she wanted to move in a lion as a pet. Now there is no reason to talk about plain jane, but a big reason to highlight the issue on the supermodel.Both are wife material in some ways and you can be happy marrying either, but one is just regrettably...silly.
magneto shot: lets see, original Holga is ...Medium format folks, medium format. That means the sensor(film) is bigger than your FullFrame Sony A7rII .
The digital holga : an 8MP 1/3.2" CMOS sensor
Ouch. thats probably 16x smaller.
it did advertise on using your "holga lens" via adapter, that is grossly misleading given the puny puny sensor size. creative tool? it has a sensor the size of last 2 years phone.
magneto shot: man, come on, i just switched to film.give me a FF equivalent bokeh for 2.8 and i am happy
without bokeh, i rather stick to instagram or vsco.
