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

slyster: Can we have some comments about the display? AMOLED screens have been notoriously bad when it comes to colour accuracy. Is this better than usual? How does it compare to IPS displays?

You can calibrate your screen if you unlock and root your phone.
Its tuff to do but can be done

This will sell well.
It has good AF(ALL cross type),great touch screen(via the M), new sensor" new AF system also includes a new Hybrid CMOS AF II sensor", And alot of really good lenses.

Body only for a just announced camera is only $649. Not to bad.

Its build quality is most likely better VS the T4i due to it being more compact.

Looks like they lost alot of weight by loosing the DSLR battery. only 380 shots is mirrorless area.
Now if they could just make a pancake 30mm F1.8-F2 for crop, this camera would do really great.

On Hands-on with the Samsung Galaxy S4 post (135 comments in total)
In reply to:

JTF: I was hoping this review would have touched upon whether or not the noticeable green color cast of the S3 PenTile screen has been improved with the S4. It would be nice if that effect was minimized somehow.

The screen cast can be EASILY fixed. This phone will be unlocked before its even released and with that, any kind of screen problems with me easy. Franco's kernels usually have a screen calibrator built it, nice and easy.

Combatmedic870: This is more like a S3s vs a S4.
Not enough has really changed.

Not really a game changer. Sooooo yea...they went the apple route.

Lar's the faster processor isnt really needed, The S3's is plenty for Anything "right now" and the distant future. The screen may be higher res, but is anyone really going to notice? Your not going to hold the screen 4 inches away from your face. The way faster processor, in real life is it really going to be noticeable(maybe the gpu)?
Now the upgrade to ddr3 may be noticeable in real life.
I mean SOON these will be able to replace a PC, but the proper software isnt there yet. JB isnt even optimized for quadcore/octacore processors.
Phones are growing up faster then the software can keep up.
Its a nice phone, I have my galaxy nexus and an upgrade soon, waiting. I dont think i would purchase this. I enjoy my on screen buttons. JB was made FOR on screen buttons. i dont understand the need for hardware buttons any longer.
Anywho. its nice, just not all that big of a deal. If they would have included an S pen with a wacom processor. THEN I personally would have been VERY VERY interested

Now if they made an app and adapter to make your smart phone do the same thing, that would be cool. That what i thought it was when i seen it on the main page. (iphone)

On Hands-on with Photosynth for Windows Phone 8 post (34 comments in total)

Lars,

Try it with a tripod, see how it work with that?

I did that with the photosphere for android and actually came out with some pretty dang good results.

I know that using a tripod isnt going to be anyones thing, BUT, you should try everything you can to get the best IQ and merging possible before posting a review(IMO of coarse). :)

Atleast then it would take any user error out of it.

If you did, then that apps is not....so good.

On Which mobile platform is best for photographers? post (16 comments in total)

As of right now, OIS has the advantage of only releasing one phone a year. All apps are optimized.

For video, I think android has the upper hand. Being open source, you can drive in the OS and up the bit rate and in some cases the FPS.

Who knows, both are becoming good platforms. Within the next year android will pass up OIS in apps. Just too many phones and too many people.

In reply to:

BingoCharlie: Surely this is the first in a line. 28mm now. 35mm and 50mm to follow, similar to the Sigma DPMs?

That would make me happy! i want a 50mm walk around!

Direct link | Posted on Mar 5, 2013 at 15:46 UTC

??? Why? A 28mm 2.8 lens?

Why cant some one release one of these with a 32-35mm(50mm) F1.8/2 lens.
I just want one with a 50mm equiv!!!!!!!!!!

:(

Well lets see if they have can beat the D800. It would be nice to see MF above FF again. If not then whats the point.

I hope the MF makers have stepped up their game! I would hate to see MF ghost.

On Aptina signs patent cross-license agreement with Sony article (30 comments in total)
In reply to:

Jonathan F/2: My take...Sony was actually infringing on Aptina's patent portfolio, but since Aptina's a smaller company and any legal wrangling would be financially draining against Sony, it was just easier to make a cross-license agreement.

If it was the other way around, I'm sure Sony would sue Aptina into oblivion!

THIS^^^^^

Sony would crush aptina in just the lawsuit nd they would never recover.

Ubilam, that would mean smart phones arent for you, and you commenting here was worthless.

Glenn72: Still waiting for a Windows phone version.

You picked up a windows phone to early.

If they would have done what blackberry did for there version 10 im sure they would have it(giving $500 to each developer).

Combatmedic870: Common Samsung..... make a move. You need to release the first FF mirrorless like you did with the aps-c

Ok....first AUTO FOCUSING FF mirrorless camera.

I see leica on its own. I dont really see it as a mirrorless. its a niche rangefinder.

In reply to:

SirSeth: I've read the article several times now and I'm still shaking my head as to what this is really about. It's Android. Linux based. An OS owned by Google. Why is Microsoft intellectual property licencing involved? Do they own the idea of an OS or something. The Redmond blurb seems to indicate that this mutually beneficial partnership is about making more services available, but the DPR copy makes it sound like Microsoft is suing all these companies pants off for stealing intellectual property. (Ok, maybe a little hyperbole there).

Google makes 100's of millions as well as microsoft. Google makes its bulk from google being google.

Microsoft has some patents(motorola had more and now google has all of them). Soon them patents will be determined to broad/or become invalid, and then they wont make anything.
