On To the Eternal Light in the Capital City Series: Rome, Italy challenge (4 comments in total)
In reply to:

valenttin: Vatican is not Rome...

But is in Rome …. Is like Visiting Mount-Athos claiming the same time you have never been in Greece.
Vaticanul, unul dintre microstatele europene, este situat pe colina Vatican din nord-vestul Romei, la câteva sute de metri spre vest de fluviul Tibru, pe malul drept al acestuia.

On Samsung Galaxy S5 camera review post (82 comments in total)
In reply to:

Menneisyys: Smearing is awful even at base ISO. In no way a contest to the Nokia 808 WRT plain still IQ.

I *really* hope Samsung comes out with a Nokia 808-alike - with a huge sensor and great (prime) lens. Just another branch of their Zoom / Camera series, with photo buffs wanting a prime-"only", large-sensor, high-end phone-based camera would be a killer. The current lineup (unless you do need zoom)? Not so much, regrettably.

All in all, I won't ditch my Nokia 808 for the S5. The 808 is a perfect non-smart (I in no way use the Net on it, particularly not for browsing - the Achilles' heel of Symbian) phone for me. And, when better IQ is needed, I take my Fuji X-E1...

when better IQ is needed, buy yourself a Samsung (an S5 for example)........ :-)

geo444: a Pure Marketing Chimera !

for that price, you could buy 2 Excellent full manual Samyangs
the 35mm F1.4 and the 85mm F1.4 for eg.
then post-process all the swirling effects you want !

it's just a shame they have never been tested by DPR...

;)

If the are not checking us, as customers, then It is Pure marketing idiocy !!!

This unfortunate Canon looks like it is crippled with an ugly artificial "prosthetic" something, that looks more like a scuttle of a boat than a lens .

Petrogel: Sony's over exposed arcs, and the light coming out of the window (compared with the Canon), shows that the shot can be taken faster or with significant lower ISO

Although the noise is noticeably better on Sony's shot.

Petrogel: Together with the 3D interactive hologram display system, the remote control patent, the magnetic solution lens holder patent , the light field -like imaging system patent and who knows what's next patent, i believe Apple "will use those patents to sue anyone who'll design or use anything else about mobile devices in the future." like someone once said !!!!!
Apple the "meta-Jobs" free falling era.

MaxiMax: The patent laws should be changed. There is just too much greediness out there for inventions that are not really inventions. Let' s say, the fork and the knive has been invented. Could I then make an exclusive patent for eating with two forks?

Totally agreed, and there is an example of what you say :

-As long there are stupid products surely you'll be stupid customers.
-As for the article, this Electroactive polymeric Iris will be very interesting to be seen inside the -let's say- iPhone 6, but i'm afraid we won't.
-Now, about the curved sensors they exist for more than five years, just like the tunable optics , but neither of them have been seen on smartphones ( and IMO won't be be for the next 5 years, if not more) as there are more expensive compared to the conventional lenses and sensors
Here are some links for further information, if you feel like it .

You're commenting my comments by calling me hypocrite , you call my opinion worthless, you ask others not to answer my comments and to keep quiet , when the same time you can't stop typing ….. and i'm the one who's provoking ????

Oh…poor vv you are not an ordinary Idiot you are a category on your own.

How would you like to be invited as my guest on a dinner party ?
Every now and then, we (some friends) gather for a "special" dinner party where you could talk about yourself,

P.S Idiots always ask for more, just like yourself !!!!!!
