Can someone please enlighten me about what the previous generation sensors (even prototypes) were capable of doing?
I can get a feel of how much 0.005lux are, but I'm not familiar with the latest (now next-to-last) innovations...
0.01, 0.05, 0.1, 1..?

In reply to:

lacikuss: Certainly none of these pictures need more than 6MP to shine... Nowadays any decent smartphone will do.

Maybe this is the real birth of photography? A type of art only available in the past to a few with big pockets...

Hmmm, interesting. I like it!

Oh I discovered that way too, so I agree with you that it's a blessing, albeit in disguise...
Then I moved on to the appropriate tools for the work ;-)

"Will do" if you can get by with lackluster color rendition, limited dynamic range, bad S/R ratio and so on.

I do, in a pinch, but when I can, I tend to avoid it...

I like best Nos. 2, 16 & especially No. 9, that "smartphone glow" is kinda magical, and like the tension in the composition as well.

In reply to:

lbuclk=: Why a '" guaranteed replacement in 48 hours in the event a card fails " what happens after hour 49? seems too short of a plan.

...I guess it means that you'll have a new card in less than 48hrs, not that you have to send it back within 48hrs...

Followed an hour or so, stream was fine for me on the homepage of dpreview.
Interesting, albeit not overly so.
Thanks, though!

This is why developers hate making apps for Android-based phones.

Hmmm...
jokes aside, it looks to me that this forum, not me, is a little one-sided.
If it were for the likes of you there would probably only be apple devices around...
if you call that freedom...
I'll go read some good book on my Cyanogenmod tablet...

Samsung is the reason behind its own demise, they made terrible choices lately...
As for "my version of freedom" a smartphone that doesn't let me use it as I like is not freedom, so your point is moot.
That's /one/ of the reason behind Samsung's recent drops, they've become an "evil" company

In reply to:

Galbertson: Rockwell states audio in jack for Nikon's own little stereo mic. Will other third party mics also work?

Yep, and a good external recorder costs a fraction of a good mic.
And audio quality is usually much much better than a good mic with a noisy pre.

What good does an audio jack?
If you want pro audio just use an external recorder and synch it in post.
No point in using a good mic with poor DSPs.

In reply to:

Anastigmat: The color of this camera is good if you dropped it in water and want to look for it. On dry land, it looks too conspicuous.

Yeah, because mountain bikers & skiers wear camo & try to blend in with the surroundings! :D:D:D
