Peiasdf: I like the standard black background better. Easier on the eyes when pixel peeping.
One X's camera is not very impressive for a flagship smartphone.
I find the camera very impressive (and convenient). My others are Sony HX30V and A55 with 5 excellent lenses. But for well-lit everyday shots, the One X is plenty good. And for 1080p video, it's also quite good. Yes, the other two are slightly better; but nowhere near as convenient or available.
itsastickup: I wouldn't want to go near this unless I knew that HTC had mended its poor battery life ways. My brother deeply regretted getting the HTC Desire for this reason.
Nonsense ... I've had the HTC One X for several months, heavily use it every day - and never have to recharge during the day.
Barrie Davis: Notwithstanding that it appears a pretty poor tripod (?) I'd also like to know why I'm expected to pay £54 for a $59 item...[??]
Because your country is wealthier, and manufacturers and retailers know you can afford it more easily.
h2k: I understand this is a very fast solution to get a potentially interesting pic - which could also easily fail.
Otherwise, if you have a bit of time, wouldn't it be better to take series of shots and mix them in Photoshop using Photomerge and mix modes? It would also remove the need to have a very fixed camera position.
while in theory I would agree, Scrozzy - if one can afford this camera, one can easily afford Photoshop, or PS Elements.I'm impressed with the short intervals - but not the resulting combined image.
I can't get it to play. Either here, or on Viimeo - it starts, but won't go bast 0:02 even though the grey bar shows the video is loading.
MrTaikitso: Just noticed, no GPS or orientation sensor. Bad. GPS is priceless really for when you forget where you took a pic and for general photo organisation in apps and web services such as iPhoto, Picasa etc. Don't understand why they left GPS and orientation sensor out in 2012! Even Panny and Sony include these as standard across all their compact cameras. Almost perfect!
GPS is not standard across all compact cameras; indeed it's rare. I agree it should be.
Very sad that they did not retain the compact size of the A55 in the 57. It was quite compact, wonderful value for the size and price. So for the "replacement" Sony makes it bigger, takes away GPS, no sensor improvement, and adds some Bionz chip features?I won't be "upgrading" my A55 anytime soon. I can only hope that the future leads to a more compact SLT design that, again, sets the trend.
This is an excellent video, reminding us all of the basic rights of photographers - and the public generally - to do things that are safe, even curious, in public spaces. Kudos to these photographers and videographers for the courage and persistence to put this together - and thanks for sharing. I would recommend the same idea be done in major cities in the US, Turkey, Spain, Egypt, Taiwan, China, Japan, Malaysia and other places around the world. It would be the "Public Photo Project", aided if need be by the ACLU (civil liberties groups) and similar organizations, protecting the legal rights of the public.
This is a fascinating image, but at first blush it's wrong .... the water waves are in the upper part. Is it upside down? The reflection on the bottom is even worse. It appears the photographer is messing with our minds ... clever.
