kgreggain: Why the F is dpreview reviewing phones? The phone has a camera but is not a camera, it's a phone.
Stop the insanity.
My motto:id rather take no shots and memorize extra good, than use a phone.
those 41 megapixel is kinda a marketing gag.(even in iso 100 it looks bad)
someone put this in "connect".
InTheMist: Amateurs criticizing NG photographers. Heh, that's a hoot. Armchair quarterbacks.
I bought the issue as soon as I saw it at the news stands. Sure to be a classic.
if amateur means having a sky that doesnt look like a shot taken 30m underwater, then ill gladly call myself an amateur.
gah, no more AFGHAN GIRL. She's startled enough..from that camera shoved in her face ;)
also: most National Geographic pictures look kinda funny-surreal, what with their overuse of contrast and candy colors.
thanks to this thread i have found out that you can costumize news.
and "connect" is now off. But it still shows this iphone news item :)
HappyVan: the title of the article is provocative.
Not sure what Barney is trying to do. But, I'm sure that he is not saying that panorama can only be done by a iphone. Or that panorama is best done on a handheld device. Or that the iphone represents a magical user experience.
On-camera panaroma has been around a while. That's the nature of digital devices.
Here's the important thing!
Anything photographic that a small device can do. A dedicated camera can do better.
are you working for apple?how many replies do you have now in this thread?over 50?
calking: Some of you are crazy. It's still possible to use an older DSLR and shoot panoramas. It's called a TRIPOD and STITCHING SOFTWARE.
I'm referring to the whiners below that are bemoaning the fact that their camera doesn't offer this. A panorama isn't magic and you don't need this built into a camera to be able to do I, and do it as well or better than in-camera stuff.
I shoot panos with my Sony rx100 and fuji xe1, but also with a nikon d80 on a tripod if that's what I have with me.
there are no stitching errors with modern software. (of course overhead should be at 30 percent for that)
for that price you would expect way better iso and sharpness.
dont really understand that review. but i dont have to - i just look at the raw test scene.
SWSF14: It's great for a PHONE.
I wonder if any of the negative commentors even own an iphone.
i dont even own a mobile
mckracken88: id rather take no shots than use a phone.
exposure differences are easily corrected in stitching software. And if you take 50percent overhead - youll never have problems with stitching either.
i fail to see whats so great about this phone, except that its low res and the iso stinks. BOTH critical criteria for a panorama.
id rather take no shots than use a phone.
those 38 mb from the nokia look really bad compared to the D800. Even at iso100.
I would never use a phone camera.
someone forgot to add:D800 RAW ISO 1600
nope. im not tricked.(been to namibia myself, rest was not so tricky)
makes me glad i live next to trees and grass.
i could never live in a city. these pictures are just sad.
not a fan of overdone hdr and filters. (and foam water)
thanks for the link - old timey pics in color are AWESOME.
yeah...im not haunted...
