KNich: Sony is laughing all the way to the bank with people putting out a $1,000.00 for a pocket camera.
lol, and almost all of them buying it will be shooting at armslength, on auto, and with a selfiestick.
Thsoft: No touch screen. RIP
it s funny, I wouldnt even consider it if it had touch screen!
No touch screen is a con? ! Did my 12 year old nephew have a say in this review :)
I wonder what applez calculations is, on cost of having to service phones in which the camera is more or less accidentally used in manual settings now.
Pics like these makes me kind of hate being above interested in photography, cause all I see is expensive gear and abit to much pp, instead of just enjoying these really nice shots!
All I got from this article is what i already know; that some apple users will, for free, spend lots of time writing about the experience of using their favorite product. Put into the right context, its payed work also.
I just don't get why people buy ipadz at all. when you get a full featured PC working as a tablet like the lenovo yoga, for the same money.
globethrottle: Oh, I thought there was something to read here, but no, it was all ifon stuff :-(
I guess once your on the applez slave ship you automatically start pushing the products, its amazing how they do that.
Oh, I thought there was something to read here, but no, it was all ifon stuff :-(
Why is it so important to point out that it is all the work of an IPHONE!, couldn't they just use "mobile phone"? I'm almost mistaking it for an add from applez and nothing more.
I think he is either payed, or he is an applez fan.
OC anyone can get great results from any recent mobile putting it through various "creative" filters.
keeponkeepingon: Thanks for the timely quick review!
I would have loved to see a comparison to the Nokia 808.
I'm leaning towards the iPhone5 as I have a ton of iOS apps but it would be nice to know how much IQ I'm giving up by not dumping apple and going with Nokia.
Also, at leat part of the iphone 5 marketing has been directed at how fast it is. I would love to have some impressions on the speed of the 5 for both taking and processing photos versus the older iphones (I'm still using a 3gs).
" it would be nice to know how much IQ I'm giving up by not dumping apple and going with Nokia."
I guess you meant how much your gaining by dumping apple?
So, whats the market share better camera phones need to have to get reviewed on this site?
Please don't tell me I HAVE to touch the screen to operate this thing?
slobodanr: There have been some so-so stories in the news section at times, but this is really a step too far. What has this got to do with Digital Photography? Are we going to be getting an in-depth review of it? Is every laptop/monitor that gets announced with an interesting new feature going to be advertised here, or is that only reserved for Apple products?
apple is all about attention, and attention is what they know how to get. Nothing new and groundbreaking in any way, just a good old hype. Its like my 12 year niece is saying; its soo nice, and It just needs a "Internet and face book button"
I just don't get it how a silly touch screen is going to make any of my photos better in any way.
The installer popped up after last use of x4, no problems afaik, Windows 7 64 here.
"Never seen before features"? Sorry, but I've had most of those features with the software that came with even my old 400D.
I just don't get the news, I can do all that on even my old PSP 8. Oh well, they prolly sell bucketloads anyways ...
For editing pics like you could with pretty much any software out there, I think "awesomized" sounds way over the top, "a-little-less-crappier" may be more to the point.
Why will it not be available in north America?
