AshMills: Why isnt this in Connect?
Hahahaha!Seriously, though, I think the OP was talking in earnest...
Bruce McL: "For most purposed, 3MP is plenty."
People using their camera phones "for most purposes" won't bother reading this website.
You didn't mention anything about how editing and saving JPEG files repeatedly can degrade the quality of the image.
People who care about their final results should use at least 8MP. If you start with 8MP then you will be able to edit and crop and still have something that looks good at the "deliverable" size of 3MP.
Maybe I don't know how to photograph, but kariliceland sure can't edit! :D
Yep, sometimes struggling with my 6MP camera, especially when I find out that I'd rather crop in a bit, or give a different cut to the same composition.My bad in the first place, I know, but it'd be good to have some leeway.
Petrogel: "Focus is pixel-sharp, but details aren’t quite as precise as the version on the right."
The (on the globe crop picture ) cross purple stripping, of the American mainland, is not visible on the supposable more "detailed" right version !!
That's because it's an artifact, and isn't there in the first place.

Tape5: Mobile phones place cameras in the hands of thousands who think photography begins and ends with taking pictures.
They are as good as painters who think painting is about pushing your brush into the paint bucket and rubbing it on the canvas.
Sure sometimes it turns interesting. But 99.99999%* of the times it is not even interesting.
*Taking into account all mobile photos taken daily on the planet.
@MdNvSso let me get this straight: you're saying that a starving artist would go for a $500 smartcrap camera instead of buying a$200 or even less-, 6Mpx-DSLR off ebay? Or even - GASP! - a film camera for much less?Smartphones are for people who can afford photographic equipment (and yes a Nikon F2 is even considered PRO photographic equipment).
Sonyshine: Since when did two turkeys make an apple?
I feel sorry for Nokia - OK they sitting in a mess of their own making but most of us have fond memoies of our first Nokia smartphone - unlike Microsoft where our early memories are of slow computers constantly crashing and the Blue Screen of Death.
I fear this will end in tears for all concerned.
what stuff you could possibly want that was in Symbian and isn't in Android?Only thing that comes to mind is a pedometer...
LensBeginner: I'd like an iPhone with Key Lime Pie 5.0 ;-)
I mean a *real* OS :-P
I'd like an iPhone with Key Lime Pie 5.0 ;-)
let me get this straight: are you shooting, like, in "bulb mode" and let the dumbphone manage the exposure?
reginalddwight: The forecast for Nikon and other Japanese camera makers is grim.
Nikon shares are trading 32% lower this year.
Their biggest slide comes from the 48% decline in compacts (with "only" a 6% drop in DSLRs).
As their company President Kimura hinted last month, Nikon are looking to tap into the smartphone market by creating a product that will "change the concept of cameras".
A Nikon smartphone, anyone?
..wait, seriously? :-|
1. THINK2. post.
Similar story. The author of this ( http://laptopiniran.tumblr.com/ ) post ended up offering apologies for calling someone a "thief".No point in a passive-aggressive behaviour like this one, really.
The innocent new owners of my laptop have been in touch and are mortified about the story and are keen to return the laptop.
Given the huge error of judgement on my part in sharing the story and failing to respect their privacy I have asked them to keep it by means of an apology.
Reg Natarajan: This thing takes narcissism to a new level.
because it's *your* P.o.V.
'just 'cause I sent the huge alarm clock that usually dangles from my neck back to the shop for chroming... (facepalm)
Nice! love the storm in a bottle.
Sam Carriere: It's bad enough that this site now considers phones cameras -- can we please not get into this?
Well, if it takes pictures, then it's a camera, I guess.At least phones are digital (as in DigitalPReview), and here only the printing process is digital, but I find it interesting nonetheless.
pauld77: But what if you don't want to be David Lean but just want to be David Bailey?
...and if you want to be Bayley's without the David just pour yourself a little glass!
JRFlorendo: I'm craving for that cheesy pizza now.....soo hungry!
I respectfully disagree.Moreover, if you look at the credits one of the names (& face) surely looks Italian.
There's no such thing as "too much" extra-virgin olive oil, even better if it's from Tuscany.
One of the niches of the Qs is shooting with a K adapter and telephotos (they get humongus equivalent focal lengths with that, and amazing clarity).You lose a little reach with the larger sensor of the Q7, but high ISO performance looks so good it might allow quite a faster shutter speed.
Well, if anything it's practical.It's only about 5x or 6x the size of the phone...
