jennyrae: Olympus successfully reinvented hdr mode and renamed it sensor shift. Seriously, a 3 picture bracket shot would still be better. This sensor shift design is more of gimmick. It is still in reality 16mp natively and being marketed as 40mp by virtue of stacking which is in a way somehow similar to what is now commonly known as hdr mode in cameras.
You are wrong jennyrae, please stop with your nonesense.
Michael Ma: Things that Samsung could do to move smartphone imaging forward.
RAW - This would improve, white balance correction at post, Highlight/Shadow recovery, better denoising options
Manual camera controlsSometimes we want motion blur. Sometimes we can keep the phone still while snapping a photo with 1 second shutter speed. Let the users decide what we can and can't do.
Lens profiles for Adobe Camera Raw, iPhones have it to correct distortion, vignetting,, etc.
Most phones have fixed aperture so exposure control is very limited.
Najinsky: Can I be your new joke writer for your headlines. I promise I'll never use Carl and Ice in the same sentence again.
I like Carl's eyes...
intruder61: i want the $5000 hermes edition
All black stealth streetshooter edition without the red dot for 5000$.
Joe Ogiba: So 15/12 fps is a new video standard ? I guess if you are making a Keystone Cops movie it's ok but I would stick with 1080p60 for any action shots.
Fast speed, not slow-mo.
lightleak: If they make palm sized full frame compacts now, please stop telling me a digital 6x7 slr is totally out of reach and will never happen.
Something like a digital medium format rangefinder (Mamiya 7) would be nice.
tommy leong: "....With its 15mm-equivalent, 110 degree angle of view, it will be the widest-angle rectilinear prime lens for APS-C/DX format SLRs.."
does sigma 8-16mm count as a rectilinear lens?
How come nobody mentioned that Sigma is a zoom lens, not a prime...
RX10 - APS-C three-point zoom lens (28mm f2, 35mm f2.8, 45mm f3.5).
You can find K-5 body-only for around 750€ and 800€ with kit lens (Europe) and I doubt K-30 will be much cheaper.
Where is that 1" sensor with 1.4 lens that every fanboy out there was preaching about?
qwertyasdf: This is a living proof that m43 lenses are way overpriced.
What about Olympus 9-18mm?
chalnicolas: I wish they would offer their sensor in a mirrorless interchangeable lens camera. Ideally join m43 and become the third company to build bodies for that mount … I guess they could sell a lot and also foster the sales of their own current and future m43 lenses!
Medium format foveon sensor in a rangefinder body sounds nice.
Fuji, build me a digital X-Pan!!!
Charles Laigo: Not that it really went away (only died down a bit), but is the megapixel race now back with a vengeance?
Screen res war never ended so... Well... You know.
Megapixel war never ended so it can't restart.
Peter KT Lim: Photo quality come from the size of the image sensor, not mega pix.
Pentax K-5 is APS-C and its Sony sensor is in many ways much better than Canons 5DII that is FF.
wilsonlaidlaw: I just hope the lenses are better than the rubbish fitted on the front of recent Kodak digital cameras, to which they put their name. Given their reputation for wonderful large format lenses, I was amazed they were prepared to risk their reputation on these awful plastic blobs.
Sorry, you don't understand. Leica and Zeiss DON'T make point and shoot lenses. Panasonic and Sony make them and buy Leica/Zeiss brand name for marketing reasons. But still, lens has to apply to some standards of those brands.
Leica and Zeiss don't make point and shoot lenses, Panasonic and Sony do.
Iron Mike: a 15 in display with 2880x1800 resolution will make stuff so small it will be very hard to see, including text. The 1080 resolution on my 16 in laptop is bad enough, this will only be worse...
Apple doesn't invest millions creating new displays, they simply buy them.
