kawasakiman: How about revisiting the old Canon eye tracking focus. I'm sure the technology of today could really bring it back up to speed.
Yes, The Elan 7 did that, and for the time was pretty advanced tech.
Lassoni: Luckily I don't listen to pop music (which I despise), so I don't have need to use spotify or other streaming services (since they most probably don't have all the songs I want to listen). Been much better listening to free or subscription based internet radios!
I only hear jazz and classical music and Spotify has it ALL
Papi61: Sad truth: Apple is greedy, Taylor Swift is greedy, the photographer is greedy. This society has made greed into its main value. Despite what they claim, no one gives a crap if someone else is exploited in the process, as long as there's some financial gain. The hypocrisy is virtually infinite.
Will we ever reach a money-less society, where poverty, crime and ignorance no longer exist, as envisioned in Star Trek? Nah, more likely we will self-destruct in just a few decades...
You are very wrong. I have told you before, I am against counterfeiting and stealing intelectual property that's all... But your liberal mind thinks that is ok... However you hate Apple for doing so.
And I have good Korean friends so stop this nonsense!
papi61 sorry I can't keep answer your very constructive comments, my House of Cards episode just started.
Magneto shot: Yes we need one. I am not the only one being attacked by Papi61 by his absurd remarks but seems nobody cares here. (Just check his record) for him an iPhone user is basically a homophobic tea party member. Or in my case, also a racist willing to do anything for a buck.
You write from an Starbucks about how the american system sucks, you idolize the communists but don't want to go there... Please take a side and stand for it.
seeblue: Although I often find a good smartphone to be a great substitute for a camera, I doubt this good camera makes a great substitute for a smartphone.
For the size and battery-life alone, I wager NO ONE will (or will manage to) use this as their single smartphone. Thus the single device argument falls flat. This is a large sensor compact camera trying to look and act like a smartphone. In the end, it’s an expensive, moderately powered device, with average handling and speed, designed for a handful of pixel-peeping RAW and resolution enthusiasts.
The smartphone which will come closest to conquering photography will come from Apple or Samsung; not from a camera maker. Apparently they’re taking their time. In a few years we’ll look back at the CM1 as a kludge.
I have a Macbook Air, iMac, iPhone 6+ and iPad... I would't buy an Apple watch because it is useless and I consider it an scam -money wise- , I would rather have a Samsung Gear 2, but unfortunately both Samsung and Apple are greddy enough to be closed systems with zero compatibility so I cannot use it as a stand alone device... So my point is, I amNot an Apple fanboy but the equipment I have gives me service that's all.
R Stacy: Brilliant concept, though already showing signs of 2014 aging specs. Bring the screen, ram and storage up to modern spec and I'd strongly consider it. I don't care about 4k video, years off practical use yet.
There is something called Brand Loyalty... There is nothing emotional about Samsung products. A commy would never understand that. (Posted from my iPhone 6+)
Why bother talking to papi61 who is probably one of Kim Jong-un fanboys? Anyone using Apple products will be labeled as a racist, hypocrite, etc etc etc ... right Papi?
"Greedy, ignorant, racist, willing to do anything for a buck, hypocrite and homophobic" Seems like Dpreview are too tolerant to insults in their forums. Where are the moderators?? TROLL ALERT
Classic Papi61 response... But again, if you don't like the system there are one-way tickets LAX-Pekin, get one and enjoy Communism.
steelhead3: The US has a similar (rule not law) that prohibits picture taking in National Parks and was going to be extended to Wilderness areas for what the bureaucrats deemed commercial purposes. There has been some backtracking because of public ire. I don't know how responsive the EU Parliament is to public pressure, but I think a French style public strike is in order.
That was on the public beach; and said I could take photos without the tripod, because they claim I was doing a professional shoot. Ironically I was using an old Leica R3, so go figure. I didn't bother to argue and left the tripod alone.
Well, I guess a new 85mm 1.2 lens is in order... I don't want to get sued in my next European vacation. :)
Papi I guess you are some kind of Michael Moore fanboy... against everything in the system but making money out of it. You are a despicable hypocrite. I wonder (if you are indeed a film producer) what would happen if Apple call you to produce their next campaign... would you say no or you would end up kissing Tim Cook's ass?
I used to live in Newport beach, Ca. One time I took my tripod to the beach to take some slow shutter shots of the ocean and a couple of cops came in and told me I was not allowed to use it or I needed a written permission. So I use a rock instead.
villagranvicent: Why am I not surprised? Classic example of Chinese "business strategy"... steal - - produce some shitty copy - make profit.
BeaverTerror do you want me to send a list of all counterfeit products China produce? It is going to be long. And don't be naive everybody knows the only original thing China has ever made is gun powder. (And some Muslims might disagree on that)
No need. Where else??
riveredger: Gotta love the camera industry... Counterfeit flashes, gray market cameras, new items that have been used, oil stained sensors, orbs, etc... No wonder folks stick to phones!
There are fake iPhones... so we never know!
garypen: If companies didn't make most of the "genuine" items in China, these almost-perfect Chinese knockoffs wouldn't happen as frequently.
Even the Virgin of Guadalupe figurines in any Mexican market are Chinese. How f..ed up is that.??
