Gonard: I just ordered a Fire Phone. I'll give it a try. Does anybody know who makes the phone for Amazon?

Please, add to the comparison an aps-c or a u4/3 with 18-200/14-140 lens!

raztec: Way to go Nikon. Keep sinking to the bottom of the consumer barrel. While Sigma puts out a constant f1.8 18-35mm zoom you keep sinking lower and lower into the depths of hyperzoom despair. Soon you will be the laughing stock of all photography.

If very small, light and very very cheap, and with enough sharpness, I'd buy an f8 (ok, maybe f8 is too much, something around f5.6 constant would be fine) zoom, for morning, plenty of light, casual photo without need of speed or small depth of field.

rfsIII: What they need to do is combine this technology with the Lytro approach and then you would really have something—awesome color and adjustable focus....next step: the ability to take photos in any point along the temporal stream.

Lytro or refocus is useless if you have a depth of field equivalent to a 28mm f16 FF lens.....
What do you want to refocus? Everything is in focus!

alexpaynter: I cannot find any mention of sensor size. Does anyone know what it is. The lens sticks out a bit so I am guessing it may be 1/2.3 inches like the Xperia Z2.

I don't really care about the looks as anything I buy will be put in a cover. The replaceable battery is a big plus for me.

I have a nexus 4 at the moment and it downloads youtube extremely slowly. Much more slowly than my old iPhone 4. Is there a reason a google product can not download another google product? I am concerned about buying another Android product.

Pixel size is 1.12 micron, so i did the math with the 16 mpx resolution and came out a sensor of 6x3.3mm. Less of 20mmq of area, it is actually nearer to a 1/2.7"type sensor.

RichRMA: The most interesting thing by far is the back side illuminated sensor. No one has one this big, they've been confined to tiny sensor P&S.

The biggest BSI CMOS today is the 1" of Sony RX100 II.

On article iPhone 5s Studio Comparison (263 comments in total)

Why can't we compare cellphones to other cameras? Tool is the same, why not?
It could be very useful to see how much gap remain between phone and compact cameras.

On article Nokia launches 41MP Lumia 1020 for Windows Phone 8 (131 comments in total)
In reply to:

TheProv: I did some math.

1020: crop factor 3.93 , lens F2.4, equivalent aperture (depth of field) is F8,646

808 Crop factor 3.24, Lens F2.2, equivalent aperture (depth of field) is F7,776

Also, made 35mm area 0 stop, 1020 has -3.89 stops less, 808 -3.34. It's half a stop of difference between them.

So, i believe in ideal conditions (daylight, tripod, ISO 100), 808 will potentially still give a little better results than 1020, but accounting BSI technology and OIS, in many other situations differences will be subtle.

What you said is exactly what i wrote.... -_-

On article Just posted: Olympus Body Cap Lens 15mm F8 review (127 comments in total)

I can accept you spend time reviewing this TOY, instead of many other real and interesting lens, but i cannot accept you say it is INEXPENSIVE, when it costs 70 €. It would be inexpensive if it costed 20 €.

In reply to:

Hugo808: So the lenses most people are going to use - 18-55, 18-135 - are the worst ones for the camera?

That makes it a tough sell, why can't we have a top performing standard zoom without having to carry around something heavy like the fast L series options?

Just once would be nice.....

Actually from what i read, except the top three standard zoom, 18-55 and 18-135 are not so far from other faster and more expensive alternatives, speaking about quality and definition.

On article Pentax announces Q7 with larger 12MP BSI CMOS sensor (233 comments in total)

A no sense buy. G15 canon, panasonic lx7, Olympus xz-2, nikon p7700 all has faster lenses, same or better range or both them.
On the same sensor. With smaller body.

Until pentax make ultra wide angle or extreme telephoto.... Dou you believe in it?
