In reply to:

vincent__l: Does the D810 fix the interpolated crappy live view, when zoomed in, from the D800 ? This makes manual focusing with live view very difficult with the D800.

Yes.

Alec: I currently have a D800, and for tethered shooting using HDMI out to an external 24" monitor for manual focusing, I currently have to use an EyeFi card, because D800 won't simultaneously enable USB tether and HDMI output.

Is D810 able to do the latter?

Also on the video front, is it scaled from all pixels on the sensor or produced using line-skipping?

about the video, it looks like it's the same line skipping method as the D800... Watch the moiré at 0:22 and 0:34 :

"Google turns its attention to imaging on new Nexus 5"

and then further down, I read: "1/3.2-inch sensor"

Too bad.

On article Download and play with Nokia's new Raw photo files (71 comments in total)

After having played a bit in lightroom with these files, I can't believe they are from a smartphone ! Incredible. My 808 is a little bit jealous.

Jim Evidon: I've seen better images from an old Box Brownie. Cell phones are best kept to making phone calls and playing with apps.
If you want to take photos and send them wireless, buy a cheapo camera with WiFi and knock yourself out.

troll detected.

ManuelVilardeMacedo: They both lack sharpness. I'm sorry for the people who think they'll make great shots with these expensive gadgets, but both of them are short on image quality. Yes, the 808 is better - at least if you can take your mind off the considerable levels of chromatic aberration -, but what's the point? For the price you'll be better off with an enthusiast compact camera like the Sony RX100.

"they both lack sharpness"

Try to compare the 1020 and the 808 to all the other smartphones on this comparison tool, at "print" resolution (= all at the same size). The 1020 and the 808 are easily MUCH sharper than the competition, by a mile. And that's all that matters to me. 3mm more in thickness to get the best camera on a smartphone is absolutely worth it, to me. Your priorities might be different, though.

"most of them are meaningless and deeply uninteresting" ? Are you suggesting that the camera is responsible for that ? Please, tell us which camera takes "meaningful and interesting" photos on its own, thanks !

Guys, yes, the 808 is slightly better (in some situations), but it's also much thicker and it doesn't have OIS. I own the 808 and my father just got a 1020, and believe me, the thickness of the 1020 is much more "market friendly". And in low light and for videos, the OIS makes a big difference. High ISO on the 1020 is also better (sharpness is just a small part of image quality). Above 800 ISO, the 808 gets green shadows, whereas the 1020 keeps more "natural" colors throughout the brightness scale. And that's something visible already at small sizes.

Both cameras are lightyears ahead of the competion, relax. If you want something thinner, get an iphone or a samsung. If you want a great smartphone that replaces your P&S camera, get the 1020.

Good news ! Shows the confidence they have in their cameras. Let people do their processing if they want.

The video stabilization score is somehow surprising. A low 49 with hardware stabilizaion? And the iphone 5s has 54 ?

Having used and seen what the stability of the lumia 920 in video, I am a little perlpexed.
