CrashMaster: I am sorry but almost all business users want a laptop. I use a Lenovo x1 and can't fault it. The tablets are probably going to be picked up by flash boys who want something different to the iPad to show off to their peer group.
I have a Microsoft Surface Pro. I purchased Logitech wireless mouse and a Logitech wireless mobile keyboard and this way you work with it like you'd have a laptop.
I even like my combination much more than a laptop because the keyboard is not attached to the display as it is on a laptop.
I'm using my Nokia Lumia 1020 & RAW heavily in the last half a year. The reason for this is that with the Nokia I usually take lots of photos that I would never with my Canon 5D. I mean. Nokia is in my pocket all the time while if I have 5D with me in most cases it wouldn't be worth for me to take it out of my backpack. I then use the same workflow as for my 5D.
Right now I'm testing/comparing DxO 9.1.5 application with Lightroom 6. I'm especially interesting in the noise removal since my whole workflow is based on Lightroom.
What I'm doing is that I first take the RAW photo I took with my Nokia and use noise removal in DxO. For my opinion DxO is really better in this than Lightroom 6. Then I export this photo as DNG and import it to Lightroom.
And here is where my problem begins. It seems to me like DxO is NOT a color managed application. Why? I get completely different colors when DNG is reimported to Lightroom or Photoshop.
Does anyone know anything about that?
For my opinion
nicolaiecostel: I bought a Nokia N9 some year and a half ago, probably the top offering at some point. The display is sh*t, when it gets cold outside, like 5-10 degrees Celsius, the display show a lot of lines, and when it goes below 0, the lines at the bottom merge and it becomes unreadable for like, 1 cm on the height of the screen. Really bumed up about it and there's nothing I can do, unless I wait for winter and take it to the shop while it's still cold. Lucky I have a lifetime warranty. Other then that, sometimes the battery charge drops significantly, from 100 to 0 in hours, even if I don't activate the internet connection and I just speak for like, 30 minutes. Nokia QC is nowhere what it used to be ..
I have had unpleaseant issues with a previous premium Nokia, the E55, I think I will never buy another Nokia.
Well it happened I purchased Ford Model T a few decades ago and I had constant problems with it. It even didn’t have an electric starting system to supply current for the ignition and its transmission system only had 3 gears.
I’m definitely not going to buy another Ford car.
He could definitely do it better by taking a Nokia Lumia 1020 instead of an iPhone. He would definitely get better colors, more details and less noise.http://www.flickr.com/photos/danielcheong/sets/72157634854663387/
gwenhael appere: Souds interesting...but i'm completely put off by Windows Phone...Nokia, switch to Android please !
For Android you would need an eight core processor running at 3GHz to do the same thing as Windows Phone is doing at only two cores. You have your Android Galaxy Zoom plastic camera and you can see how uncool an android phone camera is.

Denton Taylor: Only DPR fans seem impressed. Nokia stock down 16% today after the announcement. IOW, a big yawn.
Please educate yourself about the stock market. Read this article. http://beta.fool.com/dsewrites/2012/09/05/nokia-buy-rumor-sell-news/11320/?source=TheMotleyFool
mm1975: Nokia is making a big mistake by betting on Windows and ignoring Android. This blinkered approach and high risk strategy is completely due its current CEO Stephen Elop who is an ex-Microsoft employee..
I’m not sharing the same opinion with you. We really don’t need another Android producer. The only Android producer that has a profit is Samsung. All the rest; HTC, LG, Sony, etc. and others are in deep profit loss.
qwertyasdf: SHAME NOKIA!http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cimDfEIEiu0A van is clearly seen at the 0:27 mark, not a man riding on bicycle.I do not care if you clarified it on your website, the clarification should be on the video, like this: OIS ON (Footage not taken by L920)
So disrespectful that Nokia is treating web surfers as morons.
Don't know what you're talking about. Did they ever mention this video was taken by Nokia Lumia? They never did.Also commercials for Nikon were made on Canon cameras but thats what the production houses use. I see no problem with that.And if you check the description below the video; which many people never do; it clearly says: The video demonstrates the benefits of optical image stabilization only and the video is not shot on a Lumia 920.
yudhir: Lumia Design is like Mixing of Ipod body and iphone(rounded rectangle front ! if anyone can notice ).Clever Nokia!
NO PUREVIEW! But Still, the feature promised are still amazing!
Sorry. But you're completely wrong and even Apples lawyers can confirm that.Apple attorney Harold McElhinny held up one of the Windows Phone-based devices from Nokia (it's unknown exactly which model was shown) and told the jury, "Not every smartphone needs to look like an iPhone."http://www.neowin.net/news/apples-lawyers-highlight-nokia-lumia-in-trial-against-samsung
Thorbard: Whats with all the Symbian hate? Its a good operating system for a phone that prioritises phone functions over "apps" and whatever else.
Windows Mobile is a horrible operating system and everyone I know that uses it wants to get rid of it as soon as possible.
I'm very glad that with Nokia adopting winmo a decision was made to keep the Symbian operating system in some devices. Without it, I'd go elsewhere.
I think you actually have no idea what you're talking about.Windows Mobile OS was replaced by Windows Phone OS two years ago. Windows Phone 8 that powers the Nokia Lumia 920 is currently the most advanced and most user friendly phone OS.
I completely agree with these guys at The Guardian. I don’t remember if I would ever like a photo that is demolished by this type of applications.
Wolfgang Fieger: Sorry, but...
The average take in a cinema movie is a mere 15 seconds. The longest takes you could watch are in some nature documentation videos, where you could find single takes with a few minutes. I really never ever saw a movie containing takes longer than 5-6 minutes.
So what is this discussion about? This topic has no matter for movie making.
I share the same opinion with Wolfgang Fieger. I think 30 minutes is more than enough even for interviews because how can one talk nonstop for 30 minutes. This is the same thing as the light leak problem on Canon 5D Mk III which didn’t hurt any serious photographer except a few snapshooters who have no idea how to take photos.I once read that longer captures are just for real beginners. And the problem is that most people who find time to comment every topic here are just like that and nothing more.
pedromeyer: Steve Jobs. already said it some time back, Adobe had become lazy in dealing with customers needs. Thus the Flash black out from all Apple portable devices.
But I would add as some others have already stated, Adobe became greedy and trying to milk the cow for all it's worth. There is nothing left of the splendor that Adobe had a decade ago.
Adobe might be better served by imitating Apple, rather than Kodak.
CS6 is bloatware at its maximum.
But what else Apple is doing differently than Adobe. Apple is the same about security as Adobe. It took them a millennium to fix the Flashback Trojan vulnerability.
But yes. They were able to fix Siri immediatelly when Siri responded to its users questions that Nokia Lumia 900 cyan is the best smartphone ever.
CLEANSHOT: For those of us deciding between Nikon D800 and Canon 5D Mark iii, Canon has probably lost hundreds if not thousand's of potential sales with their "tape fix". Just not acceptable, considering the price tag.
Lots of people take their photos with their 1Ds class cameras so that nobody would actually notice they were taken with a phone camera.
Why don't you just buy a phone and use a phone camera. It surely has no tape in it.
steve_hoge: Film vs digital aside, am I the only stick-in-the-mud who's already tiredtof these pseudo-vintage-film effects, ie. trying to emulate a "19th-Century pinhole camera with a scratchy lens"?
Well. You can be tired of the perfect photography but for my opinion the perfect photography is where the real good photographers (I'm not using a word professionals here) differ from snap shooters. So from my point of view there are two options. Are you good or a snap shooter.
In this case, why buying an expensive DSLR and lenses when you can do all with your phone.This is exactly what I said to my brother who was trying to buy a DSLR. I said to him that for his needs a compact or a phone is more than enough because he will never need what a DSLR offers him.
