Gives new meaning to getting winked at.
The s7 is using the Sony IMX260 which is a 12mp 1/2.5" 4:3 sensor.
AF - Nikon D5Tweaked the AF module compared to something very new and ambitious from Nikon. Think the D5 takes that one through the lens. Unfortunately dual pixel doesn't work in burst modes......... That could've been a proper benefit.
Sensor. - Draw for nowSame mp count and Canon claims the analog to digital converters are now embedded on the sensor. As this was more or less the main reason why Sony sensors performed a LOT better at low ISO's let's give it a draw.
Video - CanonLet's be honest the Nikon is pretty crippled with heavy cropping, short recording times. Then the Canon can do impressive 60fps in DCI 4k.
That being said they made sure no serious video maker would be interested by excluding
focus peakingzebra'sC-logExternal 4k recording.
Practically all available in mirrorless options have these options or variants which makes them very popular. This is a dangerous predicament for the 5d Mk IV
Canon is also doing a 1.3x crop for 4k.
evilmagicnut: More important than resolution can someone improve EVF blackout during continuous shooting?
Actually the pixel size has not changed. They increased the size of the EVF so that required a greater resolution. Epson also increased the brightness and color accuracy. And according to Leica's press release this EVF has a faster refresh rate.
Thorgrem: So this one is going to be used in the new PEN and the new E-M1 mark II?
Too large for the new PEN.
There is one advantage to mirrorless cameras that was not mentioned. Crop sensor mirrorless cameras can have a much larger viewfinder than a crop sensor DSLR. The latest GX8 (2x crop m43) has a viewfinder the size of FF DSLR and one day the EVF may even be larger.
The crop DSLR viewfinders are beginning to look tiny in comparison.
Forza5: If the rumor wasn't true, especially a major company like Samsung, would they not release a statement right away clarifying the issue. Especially with the holiday sales season coming right up, would not want potential customers to be dissuaded from buying your product. On the other hand, if the product will be discontinued, it makes sense to be vague.
Samsung is likely hoping to clear their inventory during the holiday season before making it official.
I think I might fall over LOL if I see someone taking a picture in public with one of these.
I found this nice review and comparison of the 6s.
minzaw: Is that the best so called 6s could do??
The 6s seems to apply more NR than the 6.
Jostian: more of the same from Sony, great sensors, horrid processing...
Better than expected from Sony. The edges and corners show a lot of softness but this is to be expected from the lenses in camera phones.
I am seriously considering the Z5 instead of another iphone.
It would be nice if Sony supported RAW like most Android phones.
Too bad Sony doesn't support RAW with these phones.
Also, the focal length is 24mm equivalent. I am not sure why this was not reported here as you would think this would be useful information about any phone's camera.
Sony Z5 just scored 87 at DXOMark.
urix Lukin: And what about 4.5-4.7" smartphones with decent camera?Anyone? Please...
The sony Z5 has scored 87. If only it could shoot RAW as I find the Sony JPEGs smudge the details.
The Z5 Compact will have a 4.6" display.
acidic: Excited about the new cameras in the 5X and 6P, but really disappointed that the 5X only comes in 16GB and 32GB storage options. Also lacking in the 5X is a notification LED and wireless charging, both of which aren't deal killers but are downgrades from the 2 year old N5. I was all set to preorder the 5X this morning, but now I have to think about it.
Judging by last year's N6, I would've thought that the 6P would be too big, but thankfully they downsized it a little. Odd how the 6P is smaller than its predecessor, but the 5X is larger. Both phones seem to be approaching a sweet spot in size, at least for me. Too bad the 6P is so fugly.
And then there's the Moto X PE. Good price, and more importantly a microSD slot. And the camera is very good as well according to DXO, for whatever that's worth. Plus the wood and leather options are very sexy.
Stumped as to which to get.
The 5X has a notification LED. There was an error in the specs which is being corrected.
That must be one big drone to carry that camera along with the weight of a lens.
The sensor is actually mult-aspect 24.8mp and is cropped depending on the aspect ratio.
16:9 5984x3366 20.1mp4:3 5520x4140 22.8mp
so 16:9 will be closer to 22mm equivalent focal length, while 4:3 will be closer to 26mm
Pandimonium: you accidentally posted images of the GR but no one can tell.
LOL. Even Ricoh cannot tell the difference between to two.
