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.
Android 5.0 is now available for the CM1.
R Stacy: Brilliant concept, though already showing signs of 2014 aging specs. Bring the screen, ram and storage up to modern spec and I'd strongly consider it. I don't care about 4k video, years off practical use yet.
If I am going to carry around a phablet/tablet, I may as well carry a dedicated camera.
Seems very expensive. The Sandisk UHS-II 280/250mbs cards are less than half the price of these cards.
Both of the 43 sensors are new. The first 16mp sensor from Sony was the IMX109.
Olympus is currently using a version of the Panasonic sensor in their latest bodies.
My guess is that the 20mp will be initially reserved for the E-M2, while the other Olympus bodies will get the new 16mp.
Niko Tod: I got my copy today with a SN starting with 202... and I don't have any issues on D4s at any shutter speed. But I'm curious - what could be so specific with the 8 series circuitry?!
Shouldn't this fix also apply to the crop bodies (ie. D7100).
Carl Contax: Nikon did not learn enough from D600 problem. The af-s 300mm f4e VR diffenatly has VR issue on the D810 with shutter speeds under 250. This is very expensive lens for an f4 and we have waited way too long for it, but do not see Nikon response yet for this issue. Hope they do soon.
Nikon has just posted a firmware fix for this issues with the new 300mm PF lens. I wonder what they did.
I wonder if the latest IBIS from Olympus is able to handle this any better?
