Frank_BR: Let's be fair with Leica. The absurdity is not to sell a camera without LCD. The absurdity is to buy a camera without LCD.

It would not be absurd to buy a camera without an LCD for... $50!

Mikael Risedal: it is nice that Canon has waked up from the sensor slumber and now has a sensor who are better but still are behind Sony regarding DR, and where are 4K video?

@captura
Please, be tolerant. For many people on DPR (including me) english is not our mother tongue. Also note, if I am not wrong, that Mikael's text does no contain spelling errors, but grammar errors which are much more difficult to correct by software.

marc petzold: Does it support RAW? SCNR. ;-)

I think it is a mere sensor, without a picture processing chip. If you want RAW, just write the software driver to support it...

Changing font size in Firefox is as simple as :
- Setting zoom text only in the View menu
- Pressing CTRL + or CTRL - and you are done.
No need to change the default font size of the site.
More and more sites are redesigned for tactile devices with bigger fonts, buttons, links, etc... I use a full HD 24" monitor and with these bigger things, I do not have much more space than on my old 640x480 pixel CRT screen...

What's wrong with a Leica-certified Huawei smartphone ?
It is better than a Huawei-certified Leica camera...

On article Miggo wants to 'DSLR your iPhone' with the Pictar grip (134 comments in total)

This is a good example of how to put a tiny sensor in a bigger body.
Well, show us, now, how you can put a bigger sensor into an iphone, and I might be interested...

In reply to:

LFPCPH: Phone cameras remind me of the happy days of the Philips cassette tape. Manufactures tried for decades to make a good cassette recorder. They never made it because it was impossible from the start.

So I will talk about cassettes too...
Cassettes, like small sensors, have a limited dynaminc range. But cassettes have an advantage : if the audio level is too low, you can amplify it BEFORE it reaches the tape. If the dynamic is too high, you can use DBX to compress the audio signal before it is recorded onto the tape and expand it when reading the tape. Unfortunately for small sensors, there are no optical devices that allow to amplify or compress the signal before it reaches the sensor...

Roland Karlsson: Yet another replica of an old lens. Now it is the famous trioplan though. And, lets see if anyone can found any cheap vintage lenses here :)

@Roland Karlsson,
I was kidding about the price...

@Roland Karlsson,
The point, here, is not to get something better, but to get this soap bubble bokeh at a cheap price (i.e. $500 if you are interested... ;-)) And the Domiplan 50mm F2.8 can do it : https://www.flickr.com/photos/ney001/12028016546

@Shift4g,
My point of view is the following : if you are satisfied with your smartphone to take pictures, it is OK. If some manufacturers design cameras with better performances than smartphones, this is because there are customers, like me, who are seeking for better IQ, handling, ergonomics, features to take pictures.
In my previous comment, note that I do not try to convince anyone to get a better camera than a smartphone. Just keep in mind that if a smartphone is a practical photographic tool for you, it is not the case for everybody...

Richard Franiec: All that for free from Leica?
Oh, I forgot the price of admission.

The firmware is free because Leica cannot put the red dot on it...

I have never used disposable cameras in the past and I do not use smartphones today for the same reason : there is still a better photographic tool.

I still own some cassettes. And a couple of very nice walkmans. I am gonna wait a little bit before selling them then...

@xeriwthe,
Everyone does not have the same expectation level about camera IQ, options, settings, ergonomy, etc... Personally, this is because I DO appreciate a smartphone for what it is...that I do not use it as my primary P&S...

I owned several samples of the Domiplan 50mm F2.8 which is very close to this Trioplan. I can sell one sample to you at a bargain price compared to this remake. $500 ? Is it OK ?

On article Student takes 2016 Zeiss Photography Award top prize (223 comments in total)

I am wondering if the same kind of picture taken in a western, modern and new train would have won such a contest. I am afraid this is mainly the exotic look of the scene that attracts our occidental eyes...Or that kind of Instagram art filter look ?
IMHO, I would have voted for "Life in blue".

On article Swirly bokeh: Lensbaby announces Twist 60 lens (118 comments in total)
In reply to:

clicstudio: I don't understand who would buy such a lens and produce an effect that can't be removed. Basically if u don't want it, you are stuck with it.. In photoshop you can do the same and have control over the effect.
All of the lens baby line is the same. Photoshop can emulate all of their effects with a lot more precision and control.

Currently, it is just impossible for a software plugin to produce a bokeh identical to a lens bokeh. Just because the bokeh "intensity" depends on the distance and the software has no knowlegde of the distance of each object or region in the picture. The bokeh plugin can just roughly mimic what a lens does. In other words, a "true" bokeh could only be applied in software on a picture with depth information for every pixel.
