Sigh, I should have bought the original GF1 with the 20mm.

" Of course, Apple generally has a much smaller range of phones than the camera brands do camera models, so Appleā€™s popularity is concentrated into a few products, which exaggerates their position."

Is above the truth? Then, this post of flickr means little or nothing.

Besides, if a person uses a smartphone for online posting, I doubt they upload to flickr first. facebook/instragram has that market.

On Opinion: The myth of the upgrade path article (1296 comments in total)

for the sake disagreeing, there are people who already have old lenses with them that they're itching to use on a full frame digital camera. it's not even about the image quality.

On Kodak announces IM5 Android smartphone post (45 comments in total)
In reply to:

zodiacfml: They're too slow... there's much competition already at low-mid end smartphones.
The Panasonic CM1 looks ugly, but at least, they are risking and trying. The Zenfone zoom above is probably the first with an optical zoom, and that is with IS.

Kodak should innovate again and start with niches.....such as doing partnership with Sigma for their lenses then image sensors.

Nope, they are cameras with phone capability which looks unwieldy.

In reply to:

vscd: Why don't you add the Sigma SD1 or the Merrill cams? In the review of the SD1 itself, the camera is inside the test, blowing every other cam away, but not in the Studio update.

Is there a reason for not including it? I think it would be fair to present the advantage of the foveon. Of course it's also fair to see the drawback from ISO800 and upwards. But simply not to show any sign of it is quite surprising.

I agree. Imagine the traffic it would bring to your site.

Isn't the Rx100 series applying noise reduction in the RAW files? I just noticed that since Nikon J4 or S1 has more detail and presence, albeit, with chroma noise.

On High-end full frame roundup (2014) article (574 comments in total)
In reply to:

Alex Permit: Strange to include the RX1R, a great compact fixed lens camera, in a roundup named "Heavy Hitters: high-end full frame roundup". While it is "full frame", it is not, nor does it pretend to be, a "heavy hitter".

Stranger still to exclude the D4S and 1DX because "they're aimed at working photojournalists and sports photographers." Its like excluding the Klitschko brothers from list of heavyweight boxing contenders because they're too tall.

The RX1 is small and remains very expensive. It is the mother of all compacts. I'd be tempted if it were $200 to $300 more expensive than the A7.

Awesome. Someone could use this feature and then reduce the resolution for pixel sharp photos.

Seems brilliant to me in the crowded digital stills market.

Oh my, a camera maker giving what the enthusiast wants? This is absurd!
I would never have thought 5 axis IS would be possible with FF.

On Sony debuts 21MP stacked CMOS sensor for smartphones article (94 comments in total)
In reply to:

RichRMA: You can't bend the laws of physics. Sensors can be made any which way, but the small ones will never, ever match the larger ones. Back illuminated, electron-multiplying, it doesn't matter. They are modest enhancements that produce a slightly better product, but a 1/2.3" sensor will never be a m4/3, APS, etc.

Yes, of the same generation. The sensor in the G7X is as good as the first 5D in terms of noise and DR....yetthe larger format can produce sharper results.

Interesting....but will have to see how Google will respond since it has been a while that I have been using their services.

If MS could work with Adobe for integrating Onedrive with Lightroom....then I will be more interested.
