zigi_S: How can the phone get such a high score, when the photos look just awful?

The sensor seems capable, but the destructive noise reduction and oversharpening makes the camera worthless. Other companies like samsung and apple leave their images intact. And those images look good, even when they are taken with a smartphone.

TheDarmok74: Maybe I am blind but this is the umteenth Sony smartphone camera that gets high praises yet to me it looks like a crazy noisy image that had a lot NR done resulting in subpar IQ.
Compared to the S6, G4, Nexus 6 or OnePlus 2 this just seems blotchy and oversharpened.
Maybe Sony just doesn't hit my taste but to me it seems as though this sensor should have a lot less MP. Downsampling helps but is this the goal?
Well, to each his own.

Dpreview is losing credibility with "reviews" like these.

Jostian: DPReview gotta be mad, I click on the photos and at 100% there is a fuzzy haze (smeariness) to ALL the photos, no detail (very unnatural looking) no matter what the iso...if this is the best that phone camera's have to offer I shudder! What is DPR smokin'?

Agree. When you look at the photos of galaxy s6 on gsm arena and then photos taken with the sony, there is no comparisson. Obviously, the sensor alone does not make a camera. The processing on the sony is awful. My cheap chinese no name phone took better pictures.

Yes, shadows on sony sensor is better. Less chroma noise. But luminance is same.

Thought it would be worse. But it actually isn't bad for a superzoom. With 2000mm focal length you can shoot birds from your couch.

Even in nominal resolution, to me it looks better. About same noise but more detail. Apart from low iso DR, canon in high iso is very competitive.

Sigma did well.

The elephant in the room hasn't been noticed. Namely sensor DR. Why?

zigi_S: Downloaded the original jpg of night city scene and lifted the shadows. It doesn't look that different than mine 600d. Am I missing something?

Well I expected better shadow information from the oh so great sony sensors.

Tiefenunschärfe: No reason to be concerned.

They are only splitting out "Video & Sound" and NOT "Imaging Products & Solutions" !

see here: http://www.sony.net/SonyInfo/News/Press/201502/15-017E/index.html

The rating agencies are a scam.

Stig Nygaard: In case someone wants something else but discussing if Mads Nissens winner photo is a political plot or stagged, you can find other examples of his work here:

The first link is photos from his book "Amazonas".

"@zigi_s, did you just say that people SHOULD be imprisoned for viewing or displaying this photograph all over the world? And people voted this up? That's dark."

Viewing and displaying are two different things. For displaying I agree with the russians.

bobbarber: It's interesting to see all of the outrage on this topic.

What else do you truly get offended about? N.S.A. breaking into your computer? Bankers selling bad mortgages and taking people's homes? Anything like that, or only a college kid doing the dumb kind of thing that college kids do?

It'll be hard, but I'll try to get over this one.

DP geeks are outraged someone stole a photo of their dog.

wansai: this is a complete non issue. most ppl who have photoshop would know how to do this even without the tutorial. it is a simple process, something i would, at most categorise as intermmediate level ps skill, but likely one that any basic user should know.

i havent seen his blog post. unless he specifically states to do the shop then pass the image off as your own, i see no issues with it. also, if it is a picture of you and you have not signed a release, the photographer has no merits in trying to use it for commercial purposes. you have as much claim as the photographer.

"If a painter puts brush to canvas should it be stolen from him because he painted someone he saw on the street that day?"

Imagine a photo of you on every corner. Without being asked. Or your photo used in jokes. Like some unfortunate people on the internet, to gross "beautiful people" out.

Donnie G: Don't think for a minute that people who remove copyright info from an image don't know that they are stealing. Of course they know. They just don't think they will get caught at it, or, if caught, they don't think they should be punished for the theft. (They always fall back on the same old worn out excuse of, "well, eveybody else is doing it"). And even when they don't get caught, they get embarrassed when someone points to them and publicly labels them for what they are, THIEVES.

You stole the light in the first place.
