SoundMix: Actually...there is a panoramic program for this phone/camera as well as many photo applications...not that hard to find in the app store. Some are free. I have a different Windows 10 phone and find the apps to be very good and easy to use.
Lumia Panorama STILL WORKS!!!
Lars V: "There is no panorama function which is arguably the most used special mode by many users "If you use the term "arguably" for statement then you need to argue for its validity. What is this statement based on?
Lumia Panorama still works in W10M - even rs1Maybe you want to test it - professionally?
jenne: Panasonic should eliminate the bad frontcam and put a second little screen (2"?) on the front side of the device, so you could use the good camera für selfies.
Or just a shiny mirror back (cover).
Moderators, please, clean up the Linux FUD, ok?!
Smartphone sensor?Very good!Most likely to appear on a Lumia in 2017.
BeaverTerror: For those people who have tried and dislike Windows phones, it'd be nice to hear some reasons. I am considering a Windows phone.
Lagdroid means that after a year or 6 months the phone starts to lag no matter how fast it is/was.Not all phones get the Android 6.0 - fragmentation.If you go Android one choise is Nexus with 3GB RAM.Try to say OIS!
iPhone has OIS = Optical Image Stabilization, too!Works wonders in low light and video.
Windows phone? Absolutely Windows 10!Get the bigger Lumia 950 XL. (Both have OIS)Banking can be done via Browser.Save the link as a Favorite and pin it on the Start Screen Voilà! - Your banking app!"But it's not the same! " - Right! It's better! :-)
Nick932: I have a Lumia 920. Too old for today. Has worked OK so far. It took 4 replacements until finally I got a good unit. I like the specs of the 950XL. By the way I love photography and this camera looks promising. I think it has also RAW capturing which is just great. I like also the live tiles. It is just great you do not have to do anything it is just there. Seemingly, It beats iPhone in usability. In many cases I thought that will be better than my wife's iPhone, especially to native apps like outlook, word, excel and internet browsing but this is not true. Also, when comes to apps it is a sorry device. I will review one before I buy my next phone. I seriously doubt it that will be the Lumia 950XL.
Performance is better if you compate to a 10 × cheaper Windows phone...the Office apps work better on any Windows than on OS X or iOS.Besides they are just becoming Universal...
SergioMO: I hope they improve the phone, I had several issues with ms Lumia 1020 (google it !) :1) Lumia 1020 motherboard failures2) Frustrated with Lumia 1020 yellow tint3) USB conector brokenI'm not interested in ms anymore
But I still love the photos
My childhood friend has a Lumia 1020Without the mentioned issues.Also at the school someone had the Lumia 1020.No complaints. ...Maybe it's just a small unhappy percentage?
LiSkynden: Alakarhu, not Alarkahu. ;)
Underbear? Lowerbear?Areabear? - Surfacebear! - That's it! Perfect "translation"
DanInSoCal: I really wish that Canon would stop worrying about 8K video and 120MP sensors, and release an enthusiast SLR with either a Sony sensor or an in-house sensor that matches Sony's (and hence Nikon's) low ISO dynamic range. Canon is 5-10 years behind Sony/Nikon in this area. There really is no comparison.
photomedium : have you ever playedAngry BirdsI also have a Ninja cat as my Windows desktop background pictureand it's riding ...a unicorn!:-)So now I wonder when the co-operations starts?
photomedium: I dream in 8K.
I have adaptive resolutionwhere the focus point is followed and full resolution only used thereseems much better than only 8KStereoscopic or holographic is the best thing anywayGets you a feeling that you're "in":-)I forgot to mention the autogyro - that video doesn't shake or even tilt?!
Goodmeme: The latest PCs support 128GB RAM; a quantity which I can finally imagine photographers wanting to process 120MP RAW files.
I personally just bought 16GB DDR4 RAM for my new PC, which will hopefully be more than enough for my oh-so pedestrian 5D classic's measly output! :)
14 bits => 16 bits = 2 bytes per pixel120 MP -> 240 megabytes, still less than 1 GB !Video 8K ~35-36MP 24 frames/s as film3*36MP = 108MP < 128MP 3 frames, multiply by 8 = 24 frames < 1 GB / sec60 second = 1 minute clip uncompressed < 60 GB RAM.
The video editing software should "open up" the frames as the whatever processing is being applied is done on-the-fly maybe 3-5 frames at a time??Conclusion: More than enough RAM for stills on any > 4 GB RAM PCFor video? Perhaps multiple Xeon CPUs used with extra RAM board??
rrccad: huh .. isn't the eye capable of resolving down to around 300-400 dpi and that's really it?
isn't this slightly overkill? however if you are casting to your 4k tv it makes somewhat of sense, however, this just looks like a way to suck the living daylights out of your battery life.
I like usingMiracast on my Full HDTV=> All my old "Flagships" have it and I use it.Do I want 4K?Perhaps, but then "Continuum" is better.One can still use phone as phone ANDhave an QHD or UHD screen separately.I may buy Acer Jade Primo or Lumia 940or Lumia 940 XL (<- UHD)
noirdesir: I am curious whether most people can actually see the difference between 400 and 800 dpi.
4K projector is nice!One can have a bigger screenabout 120" or 2½m by 1½m is ok
Oysters: Does the camera have optical image stabilisation like some of the competition?????
h2k: I gather indirectly that the camera is not stabilized?
Would've been nice to have read the screen resolutions and other differences on the other models and if the battery is changeable.
All top Lumias have OISLumia 830, 920, 925, 928, Icon, 930, 950, 950 LX, 1020, 1520BUTno waterproof - you can't use them underwater
Photato: Looking at the specs of this phone makes me puke.This is one of the reasons Sony has been struggling with their Mobile division and keep losing money year after year.Somebody there needs to understand the value of balance, optimization, restraint and user experience are more important than filling spec sheets with bigger numbers.Meanwhile Apple has no problem selling their iPhones in record numbers at MSRP with "just" a 1080P screen and a 8MP camera.
Apple is better!It is because it's Apple!It simply works!
Miki Nemeth: I used to be a Sony fanboy, I still use Sony cameras, but I've switched to Samsung Galaxy Note 4/Edge just because of S-Pen. I'd expect active/digital/Wacom pen-support from such a beast.
"You hold it wrong!"
It's *always* the consumers fault!
Sad Joe: Well done again to Fuji for supporting ALL of their users - however I would NEVER use a new OS until its at least 6 months old and all of the massive bugs have been sorted….you have been warned !
I alteady installed pre-Windows 10 on several Lumia phones. Also on my laptop. Now I just need to buy Fuji camera from that list. :-)Windows 10 is very very good.But in some rare cases problems do occur.
quiquae: Wouldn't you want something a bit wider than 28mm for the front camera?
two cameras are better than one.I want OIS on front cam....who's the First ??
