This should stop the Apple from creating iPhone with camera from now on. Charging more on a phone with mediocre camera is humiliating. Now if Nokia will put optical zoom and better controls, this cam will demolish budget P&S really.

On Olympus Stylus 1 Preview preview (324 comments in total)

I'll buy one if it drops to $4xx, waiting for P7800 to drop its price too...

I am not sure how an iPhone with mediocre sensor would come close to these two cams, maybe in the next 2 or 3 years when Apple realized that 1/3 sensor is for fisher-price camera only.c

As long as my tablet is not crippled by some greedy company, I will buy and use it.

I would worry so much if my product will sell seeing this horrible IQ of insta-crap picture like this.

Hotly anticipated? Yawn, just another addition to crippled iTabs from Apple.

On Instagram coming to Windows Phone 8 (finally) post (3 comments in total)

Not needed although you can expect quality pictures now (finally) from PureView phones. Sick and tired of seeing horrible pictures with blasted filters from iPhones.

jcmarfilph: Oh another device than will spank the iPhone5s?

"The iPhone 5S has an excellent camera, the best of any smart phone camera, and even good by regular camera standards. I suggest you take a look at National Geographic photographer Jim Richardson's photos with the iPhone 5S:"

Excellent? Lol what a joke! It has a sensor smaller than a pinhead and compared to Nokia 808, 1020 and even Galaxy S4 it is just average if not mediocre.

Why would I pay for 500 or $600 + 2 year contract when I can get a cheaper (open-contract) with similar specs phone and with excellent support from community and developers. In terms of photography, both will produce horrible photos so I'd settle for less.

jcmarfilph: Plastic lens + mediocre camera = catastrophe

Trying hard photographer + trying hard cameraphone = non-sense

Buy a decent bridgecam or travelzoom and you will not make your life miserable with mobile photography.

On Sony DSC-RX10 preview (725 comments in total)

So now looks like you can make an X-S2 with 2/3 sensor and fixed aperture of f/2.8 or at least f/4.0 on the long end and a lens with 400-500mm EFL or go all the way with 1 sensor and 400mm lens but with f/4.0 aperture.

citrontokyo: We still have a lot to "cover." I think that's the hint: "Cover."

I'm pretty sure they're going to come up with some kind of Surface style keyboard cover for the new iPads.

You mean evolutionary?

On Sony Xperia Z1 impresses in DxOMark Mobile Report post (17 comments in total)

In real-life scenario, only the 808 and 1020 should produce usable results. The rest of the phones will produce mediocre results at best.

On Ten things we learned this week article (91 comments in total)

'Some of you are allergic to Apples
Apple's (approximately) annual product refresh cycle for the iPhone just came around, and as some of the world's most popular cameras, we've been giving the newest iphone, the iPhone 5s, a fair amount of coverage both on dpreview.com and connect. Although we stand by what we've published, a lot of you seem to be allergic to Apples, and you've been telling us so loudly and clearly in your comments.

We'll still publish smartphone content on dpreview occasionally, where there's a good photography-related argument for doing so but if you really don't like seeing this sort of content on our homepage."

For good time and bad times, that word is always there.. always on the news.

Sick and tired of this... Can't you just put Smartphone instead of that word?

A phone with mediocre camera that received all attentions and publicity is the worst thing that ever happened in the word of Photography.

Non-sense!

How can they rate a iPone5s with sub-par/mediocre sensor higher than this one. Only an idiot will believe in this DXOcrap mark. Do a side-by-side comparison between the two and post here the results (not just a useless numbers) and you will see that this camera will stomp iPhone5s in any department.

In reply to:

vv50: "DxOMark found the Nokia Lumia 1020 Apple iPhone 5s' exposure and color reproduction to be good." - someone needs to proofread this again. there are also lines where it mentions iPhone instead of 1020. the autofocus section even has a bullet point with no text

Talk about recycling with random minuses and pluses. It just happened the iPhone5s has more random pluses. =D
