A more elegant design would have stored the correction parameters with the lens.

shaocaholica: Can someone confirm that the GH4 can record video at 4:2:2 10bit as spec'd by AVC-Intra 100 or better? The press release says it supports 'ALL-Intra codecs'. I haven't been following the HDSLR scene for a while so this is all news to me.
Oh haha nevermind. Looks like it can. I should just read the press release thoroughly.

Horrible name for the app regardless how long its been since the first release. The photos have already been 'captured'. Only processing left.
wkay: What's the point? Does this guy have a fetish for tiny parts and intricate assemblies? I'm a semiconductor engineer and can guarantee him he wont learn anything.
Stop being a white collar engineer elitist. Nobody said they reversed engineered the ICs. Every discipline has its virtue.
They should have jeweled every button. Maybe then people will take them seriously.
lem12: Probably one of the sharpest optics by Zeiss and the price is in the proper range for such glass and brand. But introduced on mirrorless body system not on high end DSLR? I thought these two mirrorless cameras aimed at advanced user. For an advanced user this lens becomes just a 55mm lens, at not even high but astronomical price.
But this is a FF lens
Sharpness is overrated for the casual photographer.
Whats a JPEG?
Apple and Google need to get on this. Yes I know Google is working on it.
Loved the compositions and colors but the speed was too fast even on some of the clouds. There should be some semblance of motion continuity.
Why did everyone 5 years ago say it was impossible to put stabilization into a fast prime?
I hope that the MS and Google effort to put RAW into phones will spur Apple to do the same.
Michael Ma: This can't come soon enough. I also hope we can set the aperture, shutter, and ISO manually. I've learned how to hold a camera steady after of owning a SLR for 7 years. Unfortunately the smartphone is made for people with hand tremors and butterfingers. It just gives me a picture shot at the highest tolerable ISO. Not very smart for a smartphone to do this.
But otherwise, yes, this cannot come soon enough and I hope it pushes Apple to adopt the same RAW capabilities in iOS including support for already released phones that have capable hardware.
Most if not all phone cameras have a fixed aperture so you're really limited to just shutter and ISO. Maybe in the future they will have a non-bladed swappable aperture like max+f/16 and a swappable ND filter. Making a bladed aperture that small is going to be challenging and might not be that useful when DOF is going to be deep at all values anyway.
shaocaholica: Hope this will push Apple to do the same.
Or I might have to try out an Android for the first time since going Apple in 2007.
Hope this will push Apple to do the same.
I'm against RAW in smartphones and video in stills cameras. Sure I don't have to use it but it bugs me enough to rant about it on the internet. Blah blah blah, wasted development costs, blah blah, cost to implement, blah blah, my $5 is worth so much that I won't buy these products*
*actually will buy
