"Despite its nominally lower resolution than most competitors in the high-end bracket of the smartphone market in our brightly lit studio scene the Apple iPhone 6 Plus performs very well and squeezes more detail out of its 8MP image sensor than some 13MP models. Thanks to a well-balanced approach to noise reduction and sharpening it is even very close to the 16MP Samsung Galaxy S5. "
They are precisely 2 years "close" IMO. The iPhone 7s will probably be "very close" to the Samsung Galaxy S5...
This should go down in the marketing manuals as an anti-campaign.
If my information is correct, and to summarize that I've read so far -
- The Leica is basically the re-branded Panasonic. The outside is much cleaner, while the insides are probably the same.- Price difference is +300. Basically 25% more for a better, nicer, cleaner envelope.
Is it worth it? If I was in the market for this type of camera, I'd take the Leica, FIRM!
Time for a survey?Tilt Screen? Yes/No?
Donnie G: I'm surprised at the number of armchair camera designers here who are so upset with Canon for not turning its excellent pro-grade, deliberately built for action photography, APS-C camera into just another consumer grade, jack of all trades, wannabe pro pretender. Meanwhile, the real camera designers and engineers at Canon will again be laughing all the way to the bank as the EOS 7DII proves once again to be the only true professional level APS-C interchangeable lens camera system in existence, today, tomorrow, and into the foreseeable future. :)
Why do you think the 7DII is the only true APS-C Professional camera?
Nevermind Nikon, but you are implying that none of the mirrorless are pro-level cameras?
Look! A bubbly camera! That's new!Thanks Nikon!
arhmatic: The iPhone is probably the most used camera mainly because it's in your pocket. I've been using one daily since 2007.
Otherwise, is below average, I have to sadly admit... No exposure compensation, no ISO, interface nowhere near Nokia's....
@Mrrowe8 - I am sure you are not imagining I am using an old, 2007 iPhone, right? I've been using them all since 2007 - Fist gen, 3G, 4, 5 --- at the moment they were released, nowhere near Nokia or Samsung. Is it safe to assume that the 6 plus would be good for 2012, but this is 2014 right?

Beat Traveller: "Phablet" is definitely the worst name ever.
but there is no need to reuse this new annoying word...
Dana Scott: In 5 days this will be distant memory.
In 5 days, I'll say "Apple, finally... but too little, too late... next time, think faster, apple..."
justmeMN: I selfishly miss John the most. So many great songs never written and recorded, because of his murder. He was always my favorite Beatle.
...and crazy people still are free to carry guns in this America...
5.5 - 6" is more and more common. This will be standard in not too much time. If Apple is not doing at least 5" on the next iphone, they are pretty much out.
kwa_photo: I do love how Fuji is about as open and transparent as they can be to help their users make informed decisions. It enhances loyalty to the brand IMO.
Agreed, when it comes to lenses. On the other hand, there is some ambiguity if they will go full frame or now, which makes some users hold off purchases in lenses --- myself included.
Latest rumors say it will stay aps-c, which I like better.
Great to push the boundaries. Sony has been really innovative with many photography products over the years.
Apple has been lagging behind for years now. They are still good at marketing... Little chances I will get yet another iPhone, regardless.
Wondering if they will eventually issue a pro photo editing software sometimes in the future... at the same level with Final Cut Pro.
Call this off topic if you will, but can anyone speculate why can't nikon fit the guts of the d810 in a body the size if the nikon F2?
Nothing more, noting less, just the size of the F2... Not for the retro looks, just for the size and portability.
Same bubbly design, but sure, we are all pros, ergonomics are important, style, look, portability is not important, right?
SeeRoy: "Weather-resistant"A worthless designation, now popular with many manufacturers since it actually costs nothing to offer. What are the chances of getting a warranty replacement/repair when these weasel-words fail to protect the electronics from water ingress? Slim I'd say. You'd be told you got it "too wet".
WR - It's just a marketing thing... Nobody is going to shoot in pouring rain. You get wet, the front element gets wet, you can't see... Dust? Well, if you care about your gear, you clean the lenses on regular basis, regardless...
What this really needed since 2007 was an exposure compensation button. A simple +/- thing. Yes, everything else is welcome, but this is really basic.
Really surprised how good the movie quality is... Especially when compared to the Fujifilm cameras.
Either Sony is really good, along with Panasonic, or Fujifilm is that bad. Really like Fujifilm otherwise, got many pieces from them...
