Mikhail Tal: How did this get such a low rating? So many people gave just 3/5? One gave 2.5/5? This is like literally the best photograph ever taken in the history of mankind.
There are ten bars there not five.
Thank you for adding ' Withdraw post' in the options menu! Salutations in store!

Here shown are the advantages of either perspectives. :)http://blog.neocamera.com/?p=1248
Here is a hypothesis: One word matters most in the reason why for "candid" moving photography, 'Stability'. An extension of the eye and also of the co-ordination system around a point of greatest stability. More specifically "Familiar" stability. The hand eye coordination is more fine nearest... well you can figure that out. What kind of photographers need the greatest assurance of stability in candid moments (assuming they are not in a fixed location. ) Sports perhaps and then some. Then again its just another educated guess that happens to be from another stranger such as I.
PaulRivers: I'm delighted to see the studio shots, and I real review!...sorta...
But other than the studio shots, it seems to be another "don't want to answer any serious questions for fear of offending someone" kind of review.
Where is the direct comparison to the Canon s100? Or the Sony rx100? Or a dslr? Or an iPhone 4s? Or...anything.
And this marketing friendly quote - "Nokia has also included a raft of enthusiast-friendly photographic features in the 808 including manual control over white balance, ISO and exposure (via exposure compensation and bracketing)."
Absolutely no mention of probably the most important manual control on a camera this size - shutter priority (aperture priority would be important on a dslr, but not on a camera this size, making shutter priority the #1 feature).
It's a really interesting camera, and I'm really happy to see dpreview put up studio shots for a direct comparison. But no direct comparisons to other cameras, or mention of the lack of shutter priority...
Correction: Technically I am not qualified to speak for 'Apple' on how they expose shots or engage the camera shutter. I do however wish DPReview would allow me to delete a certain of my posts! ;)
Scratch that. I just realized it is a "filter" effect after-all. It looks like screen-shots of the phone are taken while filming to mimic the effect. "Mattebox" cam does show shutter speed and ISO whilst filming with the option to lock-in the exposure. I will have to look into any "jail-broken" options. http://www.iphoneography.com/journal/2009/11/26/new-iphone-photo-app-slow-shutter.htmlAlso refer to "Magic Shutter" review on the same 'iPhoneography' blog.The iphone lacks a physical shutter. It is a simulated shutter. Control over any "shutter" is only a simulation i.e. - "filter or mask". The fixed aperture and sensor size is really what decides the speed at which a exposure consumer photo can be taken without mar to general appeal.I never really cared to look into this further until now. Thanks for helping me clarify some confusion.
Yes. But, unfortunately, nothing above half a second. No jail break required. I discovered the app from the following article: http://www.dpreview.com/articles/1493430965/mobile-imaging-apps-an-overview . Notice the app I use is mentioned under "Filter effects Apps" as "also worth a look". I use the iOS app "SlowShutter".
malcolm82: From Engadget:"Ultimately, there's plenty of reason to believe the BBC's project head, Tim Plyming, when he says that "8K is the maximum the human eye can understand" and that "it's the end of the resolution story.""
That's only true for a field of view equivalent to about 40mm (or about 55-60° diagonal). For ultra wide angle viewing we need much higher.
"Then" of course our visually data induced brains will have all known realms of visual information processing. E.G. - http://gizmodo.com/5843117/scientists-reconstruct-video-clips-from-brain-activity . At least that is where it looks like a few disciplines are heading. Can you see ad-space streamed live to your visual cortex? How is that for real-time quality? Of course if so the photographic possibilities become almost an issue of time and of distances traveled in real-time. Quality will be only reduced by neural visual capacity. - * A real Brain "Boink"! ;) P.S.- if you read the linked page you will see I was quoting the author when I spoke of 20\20 central vision acuity. Please refer to his cites on request. Oh "simple", of course its not simple but its a start to the gravity of the situation. Private messaging is allowed here too btw. ;)
Human central vision is 20/20. Our central angle of view is 40°-60°. http://www.cambridgeincolour.com/tutorials/cameras-vs-human-eye.htmYou certainly wouldn't have the imax experience at home using that resolution unless fixed periphery angles could be sythesized. Perhaps with help of this instruction : http://digital-photography-school.com/a-camera-that-shoots-at-a-trillion-frames-per-second , thereby perhaps absolving all of our visual concerns 'til "then".
Although the manufacturer does not, there are apps for manual shutter speed control on specific OS/IOS devices. Just to clarify. One of the great things about a smartphone camera is the possibility to store new software whilst having cellular connectivity for data.
bigdaddave: Hmm, well, it's ok, but it really just fruit with a hardish light pointed at it.
You didn't try very hard with the lighting did you?
Looks like he hit the dramatic mark to me and won the majority vote! The rules even state: "Keep your setting simple: a plain table, with or without a table cloth, and a plain, or even dark background with little detail. Your subjects are what is important, not your setting.Aim for dramatic lighting, perhaps use a small light source at distance from your setting, casting distinct shadows to give definition to your subjects."Fantastic job Vittorio!
