Andrew Butterfield: When will they develop humans that can see these extra pixels?
They already exist, if you crop...
RichRMA: More than one camera has the ability to combine images to produce higher megapixel counts, or HDR, whatever. The problem is that any movement in the scene while the exposures are taken, that is resolvable by the sensor will result in blur, negating any image gain the extra pixels would provide in the area that moved.I will add that Oppo makes excellent Blu-ray players.
We got that, however the goal is similar.The point of "more Megapixels", or "more exposures", is that you can use the surplus data (using the proper procedure e.g. exposure bracketing, focus bracketing, etc.) to increase either detail (super resolution), DR (HDR), SNR (supersampling) or DoF (focus stacking). An maybe even some other thing that I missed.
CJ100570: It kinda, sorta takes 50MP pictures....
...maybe it also stacks much crappier? ;-)
I had applications that could do that back with the VGA camera of the Nokia 6600, quite some time ago...
Plus, if you want to do that now with your current phone, you can do it on your pc, with its full processing power.Just download Registax...
Tim Streater: Not having a rotatable rear screen is a big PLUS as far as I am concerned.
Flex circuits tend to break. Always. No matter the manufacturer.
Mssimo: I still only see 4 pages. Need to add the other 6.
@Bill that's happening because they put it online piecemeal.Do you prefer all at the same time but next week or piece by piece starting today?
YEAAAH! It's finally coming!Reading it now! :)
santamonica812: Really nice composition and very good lighting. I don't understand the title. "Worth it is salt" ?????
:-D nice one!
and congratulation to aquapell for the win!
SemperAugustus: Selfies made easy....
...ouf, c'est tellement "passée", la caméra frontale... :-D
co... come again? :-|
stupidisanart: If anyone in the last decade had ever read a terms and conditions of a software package, they would realised they have never owned the software. Hence why sometimes couldn't put it on as money computers as you wanted and only you could use it.
Although this way companies do get to charge you every month. This is why consumers will never fully adopt this method.
But they owned a license, and a perpetual one at that.
luigibozi: Suppose from April 1st iOS, Windows and MacOS go subscription, and only those with subscription can connect to web, let's say. I doubt from April 2nd any dpreview surfer will operate as a root on their machine running Linux.
He made his point pretty clearly, I think.
Combatmedic870: This device will also get an SD card slot. So thats pretty exciting! for me its either this or the Sony Z2. Which ever one makes it to the states faster!
BTW, the camera is 5MP("Ultra pixels"). I dont know what the 2nd one is though.
Needing 8, 16, 32, 64GB of readily available information is not a function "the could not" can offer.Some examples: 1) large files (which take forever to download) 2) marginal reception or no data connection 2b) the need to stick with the mobile operator offering best coverage & impossibility to switch to a cheaper one because you rely on your files being online 3) depending on someone else for data safekeeping4) need to peruse multiple files at once. How do I download them all together if I don't have the space?The cloud is a novelty, a gimmick at best.Maybe it will be usable in 5 years (at least where I live), but I will have changed phone at least once in that time frame...
Markol: Sounds exciting, but so did the HTC One sensor concept.Let's wait and see, I for one was e.g. positively surprised by the Nexus 5 IQ which generally isn't being talked highly of.
I've seen some photos snapped with a Nexus 5 and I've been quite impressed, I must say...
Nice seeing dpreview covering something other than Apple, keep it up!
This is, of course, a logical fallacy.You basically said that "it is less useful because Google doesn't want me to use it".
First of all, there are workarounds.Secondly, I agree that Google & Samsung are the next Apple(s).But, please, don't be a sheep just because they want you to behave like one.
An SD is of enormous value when you consider that, for instance, the Galaxy S4 only had - at launch and in some versions of the device - 8.8GB of available space of the 16 declared: the other 7.2 were taken up by the OS.*That's a little more than half the space declared*How much space you can get for a 64GB SD card?Answer: 64GB (albeit in base 10, a little less counting with the powers of 2, but that's around 59.5GiB in most cases).
So, if you think that "SD card slot is a lot less useful", think again...
Heie2: So it's *exactly* the same, but with a couple extremely minor differences. Essentially the EXACT same.
Well so is the Pentax K-50/K-500 from the Pentax K-30 for the most part except a new body and the entry (K-500) and mid-entry/consumer (K-50) differentiation to the product line.
The point being, the review would be extremely easy and quick, just like the D610 must have been. But, there's one thing that is most curious...
D610 Annoucement: October 8th, 2013D610 Review Complete: March 12th, 2014 (124 days)
K-50/K-500 Announcement: June 12th, 2013K-50/K-500 Review Complete: 273 days and counting...
DPR: Fair and Balanced.
@paulsky...so the masses are always right... right?
Alex Permit: 3d is a gimmick. But Lytro funtionality could be interesting. Getting focus right on a quick cellphone capture is a bit of a chore and crapshoot. Whether this feature is a bold move or gimmicky feature comes down to execution.
Lytro is a great concept, but in practice shots are soft.
Another question is ease of processing. Lytro requires the user to run custom software to "select" the focal point after the shot is made. How easy will the be to do on the HTC?
well... at least the Galaxy S5 has the option to do some sort of "focus stacking" with the two images it takes... even though I'd rather leave that to a pc software...
One should not regard an SD card slot as being exceptional.It's just the criminal market strategies of some brands (if not all) of late (no FM radio, no replaceable battery, no SD card slot) that are tricking you to think that something you should take for granted is such a big deal.
It's just something different from what you were probably accustomed to.
When I was thinking about which camera to buy a few years ago I considered dpreview to be a superior source of information and knowledge on digital photography.
Now I mainly read it as an amusing diversion and a curio/variety website, but the delusions of objectivity are long gone.It's the web and the market who ask for this so I don't blame the staff.
