///M: confirmation the Canon 50/1.4 is junk, even when adjusted its blah. I had one, sold it as it was reliably unsharp, would never recommend it to anyone.

Its a very old lens design.

rndman: Yeah. on 5.5 inch display you can not make out a difference between 720P vs 1080P let alone QHD...
I don't understand it...

On a 5.5 inch phone, you can seen the difference between a 720 vs 1080. Compare the note 2 vs the note 3. There IS a difference.

FRANCISCO ARAGAO: With this design this phone looks more like an ersatz of Sony Xperia.

Its design looks great. BTW I also love the Z2 design as well.

On Samsung NX mini First Impressions Review preview (524 comments in total)
In reply to:

T3: Samsung is simply shameless in their copying and design theft, from their smart phone designs to their cameras. But at least the pricing of this NX mini is more reasonable than what what Nikon wants for their 1" cameras and lenses. Samsung's positioning of this system is more realistic than Nikon's. Nikon is still attempting to position their 1" system as a higher-end system for pro-ish use, LOL. Also, unlike the recently introduced Nikon 1 V3, this Samsung takes microSD *plus* standard SD. With the Nikon V3, even at $1200, Nikon only allows you to use microSD. What's up with that, Nikon? It's nice that Samsung allows you to use either one.

Jwest, EXACTLY. They were the first to announce a mirrorless APS-c sensored mirrorless camera.

QuarterToDoom: Even though I'm staying away from the Oly cameras atm since I hate anything Sony (ie the Sony sensor) you cant deny even if you're a m43 hater that Olympus and m43 is leading the charge to give consumers what they want and evolving camera technology at a very rapid pace. Just look how they evolved since the E330

Im nearly the opposite. I usually wont buy something unless it has a Sony sensor. Right now they simply lead the pack in sensor development. They are just the best. After them id give the nod to toshiba or panasonic and then samsung.
Fuji uses sonys 16mp sensor(one reason I bought my xe-1).

In reply to:

AV Janus: I would like to see a sensor that has an ability to stop exposing parts that are about to become overexposed. Or expose a bit longer in the shadows, for more leverage in PP.
I guess this is similar.
It wont be a big deal if its not automated and available only as selective spots and only by the use of touchscreen.
It wont be a big deal if it wont be available in RAW as final output.
I would rather see them apply they curves features to RAW and not only for JPEG output. that would be enough for me.

On Nikon 1 V3: a quick summary article (582 comments in total)
In reply to:

pwilly: Comparing Apples to Apples, the tiny sensor comments are just uninformed. A tiny sensor like a 1/3.6” has a 5mm diagonal. 35mm has a 43.3 diagonal, APS-C is 30mm 4/3 is 22.5mm and 1’ is 16mm. Micro 4/3 folks frequently claim that there is little advantage to FF vs. 4/3 in most photos and that is true. Unless you are looking for extreme low light, or very narrow DOF an equivalent photo can be taken with 4/3. So with just about half the diagonal 4/3 is sufficient.
The Nikon 1 sensor has 71% of the diagonal of 4/3. Once again if we are talking equivalent photos the Nikon 1 sensor can take the same photo, but then add the stunning AF tracking and for action there is nothing like it.

The one thing the 1 series does right, is af but it does have the huge dof to play with.

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!

There's just a couple of things in video they need.
It can be done via a FW update and make the xe-2 and xt-1 overall better multipurpose cameras and appeal to a wider audience.
1. 24p,25p,50p. This is the biggest one. Easy fix
2. Allow manual.
3. Better codecs. Meaning more then one.

Done.

Rod McD: Thanks for this - I'm still waiting to see an XT1 in the hand in Australia......

I suspect you're making a bit much of the issue of the locking button on the ISO dial. I change ISO when the light intensity changes (eg going form indoors to outside and vice versa) or if I make a lens change to a very different FL (eg to bump up shutter speed for a telephoto). It's just not that hard, and I doubt that it's so important from shot to shot when the camera is actually up to your eye. How long does it take - one second, perhaps two? Anyone who so desperately needs that second to grab a shot should have set their camera to an appropriate ISO far earlier. Anything's better than accidental changes.

And as for the inconvenience of gloves... Show me one camera that excels with gloves on. There aren't any. They're all woeful. It's just part of the digital age that they require dexterity to use all functions. This is hardly a fault unique to this camera.

It has 3.

This really does look like a great phone. All of the latest and greatest.

Gotta wonder if the screen is IPS or not though.

vscd: I like Fuji, but too many updates are no sign of productivity, but more a sign of banana-software, riping at the customer.

I do think they need to think about of some of the stuff before they release cameras.
