GabrielZ: On the other hand, you could just carry a smallish large sensor compact for a similar price in another pocket...
the point is to bring the images effortlessly into the iPhone for it's brand of processing.
khunpapa: Hope the phone has enough juice left when I badly want to use it as the MOBILE PHONE.
Oh, you talk about spare batteries? OMG .. now the combination is as large and heavy as the old dSLR.
seriously? Keeping a charge on a photographically used iPhone has always been a challenge. Even I figured out how to do it, I'm sure you can too.
A lot of opinions and skepticism are being shared but there's one big thing that's being missed. The iPhone is a magnificent photography device. Images from more traditional cameras are often processed on the iPhone. I have used an Apple created SD card reader for years to bring images to my iPhone or iPad.
Camera manufacturers are recognizing this and offering (still rudimentary) wifi connections. I have a Fuji X-100 without wifi capability, and an X-M1 with wifi. The JPG's each create are incredible but the wifi is truthfully not worth using.
I've pre ordered this camera and have hopes for quality JPG's which will transfer effortlessly to my iPhone for processing. Would I rather have wifi connection? Yes I would, but not this generation's connections and likely not the next gen's connections either.
I'm also hopeful that a lightning connection "extension cord" can be fabricated. I would think it could.
"protect the 'federal' wilderness from commercial exploitation...." "Federal Wilderness" as in "The King's own woods?" Wilderness belongs to the federal government now? "Protect...from commercial exploitation?" What's next...calling commercial interests "running dog capitalist?" Where in the he[[ do they think we live?
Infuriating.1600 x 1600? C'mon. Does Adobe really think they can play in this market with that resolution? 4 stars? 1600 x 1600 invalidates the App.
