HowaboutRAW: What are the rumored dimensions of this 22MP sensor? If it were flat how many millimeters would it measure on a side?

16GB of internal storage seems small, if the camera shoots raw and is 22MP, unless that's separate dedicated storage.

non, batteries are non-removable, that probably makes the waterproofing of the body easier. There's not really a need for it though. Both the Z1 and Z2 have massive batteries that last very long.

the current Xperia Z models all have microSd support. So if this thing is real I would expect it to have a card slot, too.

Retzius: "a distinctly iPhone-esque design" - thats a PC way of saying it... they even copied the app icons on the touchscreen

Doesn't look like it but the Sony Xperia C3 which was launched very recently has a 5MP front camera and a front flash.

In reply to:

Salah: 720p!!! really LG?

you don't really need the 1080p but admittedly it's nicer. I mostly prefer it because you fit more stuff on the screen when browsing the web.

nah, the Android and iOS icons for most apps are pretty similar. Android also allows you to download and install your favorite icon packs, so you can stik on there whatever you want.

Menneisyys: Any info on why it's been removed from the AppStore? Just was going to purchase and thoroughly test it.

not sure, the link in the article was the one given to me by the developer but it still seems available here: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/steady-camera-stabilization/id881459978?mt=8

I'll change the link in the article.

yeah, well, I'd probably go for the Nexus 5, too. There aren't many better deals around if you want a contract-free phone.

On Samsung Galaxy S5 camera review post (82 comments in total)
In reply to:

Lukemynick: Good review. Thank you for the job well done.
As for the S5 itself, good to see improvement based on the overall score. (8 to 8.2 IIRC)

Connect, what's next in line?

Working on the Xperia Z2 now, but will probably be at least another couple of weeks :)

In reply to:

pdqgp: 1GB RAM? Why so little? No thanks.

@ Todd, you are right, but this is not a G3, it's a G3 Beat which, despite the name, hasn't got much in common with the G3.

In reply to:

Suave: Why, why, why smaller screen always means downgraded specs? Why can't there be a high end 4" Android phone with top-notch hardware? Why it's either 6" monstrosity or bastardized "mini"?

Sony Xperia Z1 Mini has same specs as the big Z1, but you are right, that is pretty much the only one.

well, it's a mid-range phone, so 720p seems entirely appropriate

In reply to:

BoFiS: Sigh, this is NOT mini, maybe if it was a Snapdragon 800 in a 4.3" device at 720p (with microSD) I'd be way more interested, but Sony seems to be the only company who has managed to make GOOD small device (the Z1 Compact)

I guess this is why the don't call it Mini ;)

In reply to:

Just another Canon shooter: Right - because the main problem my smartphone camera has is missing focus.

well, on most smartphones focus is not much of an issue in good light but in low light they all slow down and sometimes have trouble locking on. If this system helps to avoid that it's a good thing.

In reply to:

Ronaldomu: Samsung has another version of S5 called K Zoom. What about that? As far as I know, its IQ is better than S5 and also it has a zoom. Waiting for your review about this :)

It's not another version of the S5 but quite a different device with a built-in zoom lens, similar to the S4 Zoom. Some of the processing components are identical to the S5's though. I hope we can slot it into the review pipeline at some point.

On Adobe Photoshop Express update brings Raw editing post (16 comments in total)
In reply to:

CameraLabTester: There really isn't much real estate working on a tiny screen. There seems to be a minimal limit to image editing and that would be the size of a tablet.

obviously this doe snot work well for editing that requires pixel-precise viewing, but color, contrast and tone modifications don't necessarily require large screens.

In reply to:

kff: Is support RAWs from Ricoh GR a Sigma Merrill (DP1, DP2 and DP3) ? These cameras are a very compact and with a very good image quality, so ideal for every day using with iPad Air or similar Adnroid device .... :)

Adobe has not provided any detailed info on supported formats. I guess if it works in Revel it'l work in the app but that it just a guess. Good thing it's free, so you can just download it and test in a couple of minutes if it works with your camera.

joe6pack: "the only way to open our Nikon D700 .NEF-file in Photoshop Express is to import it from Adobe's Revel cloud service. We also saved the file on our device's internal storage, but there it could not be recognized by the app"

This is a no go. Who can afford to upload a RAW file to the cloud on the go only for it to be converted and downloaded back?

cool, when you export from Rawpal to PSExpress, does PSExpress actually open the Raw file or the embedded JPEG? You should see by checking the image size if you save it in PSExpress. Most Raw viewing apps just display the embedded JPEG instead of the actual Raw file.

You are right, that's not the way it would work. I think the scenario for this is you upload all your shots when you get home after a long day of shooting in the evening and then go to bed. The next morning on the way to work you can do some basic editing on your phone (assuming you are going by public transport ;))
