On Tiny fps1000 high-speed camera boasts 18,500fps article (137 comments in total)
In reply to:

zonoskar: 18000 fps at 64x64 pixels. Very usefull. NOT And only 200 fps at 1080p, you'd almost better get a Gopro Hero 4 (but that's only 120 fps at 1080p).

Hence the 'almost'.

I absolutely hate color shading. Can Lightroom help here?

Ken Johnes: 500 $ for a silly firmware upgrade? and the target audiance for this camera have been waiting eagerly for this AF upgrade .
wow, greed and trying to milk it´s customers with incremental upgrade are gonna hurt the big dogs here, both of em, look at what nikon is trying to do.

i think nikon and canon are competing with each other on how to sell less for more, while other companies are making innovative products at a fair price , no wonder these greedy top dogs have to make up for their loss with such silly act..

They said the sensor is not replaced, but they didn't mention any other hardware being replaced. So maybe they need to swap some FGA's or something?

On Can computer corrections make simple lenses look good? article (162 comments in total)
In reply to:

ZAnton: I assume there are too many variables to calculate good result.
For example LoCAs are distant dependent, so unless we know the distance to ALL objects on the photo, we can't calculate back the initial image.
Similar with non-flat focus-plane (field curvature). If the object is blurred by that, one must know the distance to the object for the reverse calculation of the "ideal" image.

Distance information is known for the focus point, so maybe they can use that. For the OOF parts of the picture< I wouldn't mind a non-corrected image, or only CA corrcted.

On Microsoft to acquire Nokia's smartphone business post (68 comments in total)
In reply to:

massimogori: Nokia has an history as a camaleon company: they used to make boots, toilet paper, TV sets, mobile phones.

Now they are joining the world leader in a very profitable market: software bugs.

Windows Phone 8 is already made by Microsoft, so why would you think they'll introduce bugs now they've acquired Nokia?

keeponkeepingon: I've been waiting for this review.

I love my 808 but will dump it in a heart beat if there is something significantly better.

Unfortunately this review has no IQ comparisons against the 808.

(that I could find, if I'm wrong tell me the page number and I will cower in shame).

I thought y'all reviewed the 808 as one of your first reviews? How can I get a comparison of the 1020 and 808 test shots? Your selectoramoter does not include the 808.

Also you state the sensor of the 1020 is "slightly smaller"than the 808s. That's sort of an exageration. I've seen anything from 30 to 50% smaller. What's the exact size difference?

Thanks!

The 808 uses a 1/1.2" (10.67×8 mm) sensor, while the 1020 uses a 1/1.5" (8.8×6.6 mm) sensor. So the sensor area is roughly 32% smaller (or the 808's sensor is 47% bigger)

On Nokia's 41MP Lumia 1020 looks impressive post (227 comments in total)
In reply to:

Impulses: If you're gonna be re-shooting scenes with other phones you might as well toss in something like the Canon S110 into the testing IMO... It's pretty affordable ($30 less than the cost of this phone plus the grip...) and I bet a lot of people (at least within your audience) would only spend $300+ on a phone (primarily with it's camera in mind) if it can actually replacesomething like the S110 and not just outdo other more popular phones (nothing against WP8, can't deny the facts tho).

And make sure the 920 is in focus @low light shots this time.

Again a phone that exhibits this annoying color shading. Why does this only occur in phones and not in any of the compact camera's? How difficult is it to design a phone without this 'featue'? This is the main reason why I almost never get usable pictures out of my Lumia 920 (and other phones).

On We put the HTC One's ultrapixels to the test post (172 comments in total)
In reply to:

Flee808: I have always enjoyed reading your interesting reviews. Your review helped me decide to buy the 808. Just a request- when you compare image quality between 2 phones, is it possible to do it by ISO, say A versus B at ISO 400? This will give a better picture of the phone's performance at a specific ISO. How does the HTC One compare with the Samsung Galaxy S2 at ISO 400? Thank you.

Of course you can compare ISO for ISO with an iPhone. Just take the picture with an iPhone and replicate the chosen ISO using manual selection on the other device. Just because the iPhone doesn't give you control doesn't mean you can't compare.

On 5 apps for the Windows Phone 8 photographer post (7 comments in total)

How about ProShot and CameraPro? Both of which offer a vastly improved interface for taking pictures in the first place. I use these extensively and they put the controls at your finger tips. From manual focus, to manual exposure comensation to live histogram. The only thing missing is a custom autofocus algorithm and auto exposure settings (center weighted, average, spot) that lock exposure to the autofocus point. But I think this is a WP8 limitation rather then the apps fault.

In reply to:

Charlene_S: Zonoskar why would they loose retina effect on biggger phone? The original sized iPad is now retina display and so is the 13in Macbook Pro. As far as a user's rating goes, I went from an iPhone 3GS to an iPhone 5. I have a love/hate relationship with new phone. I love the camera including the flash but the touch response of the screen is finicky. Yesterday the sound wouldn't work on the map when directions were requested. Sometimes I don't get texts for hours after someone sends it to me.Only 5 months old - thinking about taking it to Apple store and complaining about all the issues.

If you increase screen size without increasing the resolution, the ppi-number becomes lower. If the ppi sinks below 300, Apple no longer can call it retina because they touted this number as being what retina is all about. Apple cannot arbitrarily increase the display resolution (to maintain 300 ppi with a slightly larger screen) because that would mean ugly scaling or black borders around old apps.

In reply to:

liquid stereo: Can someone please point out some of the great features that the non-Apple smart phones possess or have brought to the market/user-space?

Cheers!

Apple needs to:
-include NFC
-support Qi Wireless charging
-add multiple screen size and resolutions
-stop being anal about their market policies
-add optical image stabilization in the camera
-add optional SD card
-include wacom digitizer
-introduce user-themes
-allow MP3 ringtones from music library
-allow customization of ringtones for everything (like SMS, whatsapp, alarm, etc).

Need I go on?

What Apple really, really needs to do is extend iOS 7 with the ability to support different resolutions. This will open up whole new possibilities for Apple. They cannot make the iPhone any larger because they will loose the retina effect. They also (probably) cannot double the resolution in each direction and only increase the screen size to e.g. 4.3" with a 16:9 or 16:10 aspect because fullHD is currently only feasible on 5" screens, 2272x1280 on anything smaller than 5" would be a challenge. And if Apple only offered a 5.5" device for everyone, I think they would loose a lot of sales.

On Samsung Galaxy Camera in-depth review post (84 comments in total)
In reply to:

schaki: The usual Samsung detail-destruction NR. Hardly a surprise... How long can it possibly take until them learn from that mistake.

If you compare it to the NX210 (whixh is also Samsung), you get an idea of what this Galaxy camera could have been. So it's not like Samsung cannot make decent camera's. I'm not saying the NX210 is the best camera, but is is very much better than this Galaxy camera.

The option to safe search should be enough for Apple. This is a ridiculous move from Apple. But hey, they also put an 18+ rating on some dictionary apps because of some words they don't like kids to see. Go figure.

On Sony Japan launches the Xperia Z tablet post (2 comments in total)

Available sometime this spring.... why can't these companies take lessons from Apple. I'm not saying that Apple is the holy grail or something like that. But when they (Apple) introduce some gadget, it is available in the next 3 weeks and for immediate pre-order. Spring is more than 2 months away! Ridiculous.

On Nokia Lumia 920 Camera Review post (66 comments in total)

Why all the negative comments? The quality is on par with other phone camera's, maybe a smudge below the best of class. But OIS is a real benefit in video's, there is no denying that. Also, the rich audio recording make for even better video's in loud environments. For more pictures: http://connect.dpreview.com/forums/post/50457426

On Nokia Lumia 920 Camera Review post (66 comments in total)
In reply to:

zonoskar: I kinda expected a bit more in-depth review from dpreview to be honest. I'd like to see the same sort of graphs for noise performance as the normal camera reviews get.

I do agree with the review, the default camera app is weak. Have you tried the app ProShot? This app adds all the manual controls you'd like. The only thing missing is HDR and panoramic shots. BTW, all the pano and HDR camera apps I tried suck big time. None give usable results. WP8 needs more apps in this field!

Ok, looking forward. Also add comparisons to iPhone and Galaxy S3 please.
