Looks like android and Windows tablet users on the Photoshop photography program are due for a discount then.
ybizzle: Nokia seems to be going backwards with the cameras in their phones. You had the best with the 808, then the 1020 with a smaller sensor and now this with even smaller sensor! What's going on?
Not going backwards, I would say expanding the range.
mgblack74: So Panasonic comes out with a camera that does just about everything a GoPro does except they add a fragile cable that attaches to a Sony Walkman like device to strap to your arm. Or that necessitates 2 points of contact on any board sport. Or is not quad copter friendly at all. But hey, your aunt can film her hat making and your dad can get close ups of his carburetor like its 1983 again. Wicked.
gopro can't do 4k 30p like the panny cam can, gopro only reaches 4k 15p
Tonkotsu Ramen: still no NFC?
It won't be easy to set up then.
Still way easier With nfc
Bassman2003: I think consumers do not trust the software makers to actually add great new features once they get the gravy train going. For many years, Adobe has come out with a new version rather than fix the bugs in the exisiting version. The only incentive for the companies was the fear that people would not purchase their upgrade if it did not have better features/performance. If the companies know you are paying no matter what, will they innovate or just phone it in? We will see...
Smeggypants, you may be right but if I purchase a book or cd or mp3 file i can read or listen for as long as I like without on going COSTs. My book or Music will not disapear if I stop paying.
dynaxx: "re-imagine" ? I know language has to adapt to new concepts but this mish-mash of mediocre attempts at tromp l'oeil doesn't deserve a new word nor our wasted time in looking at them
No because reimagining is done in a single instance, just like a refill.
'Call me pedantic but shouldn't imagining precede reimagining ?'
look at it this way, each picture is a reimagination of the first or prior.
yeah, well you ruined my day by writing the word mish-mash aaarrgghh
EricoftheNorth: I don't care about this article. It's fine, whatever. Seems cool.
If I see 'reimagine' or 'rethink' or 're-ANYTHING' ever again, somebody is going to to be indicted.
IN WORD COURT.
And this is why nobody plays wordfued with Eric anymore
Very nicely put together, both the video and the lenses. Sigma produces and assembles all parts themselves by the looks, love that charm.
Looks like a great step forward for foveon/sigma DP series, the extra speed and battery capacity makes it more appealing. I wonder if it now has the power to make nice HD video.
HappyVan: To be honest, I wouldn't depend on the phone for photos.
I would slip the Nikon AW110 into my other pocket. Its footprint is even smaller than my Sony Esperia S. It's rain and freeze proof, and comes with wifi.
You can even take semi-submerged shots of a flood. Of course, it has an optical zoom.
On a budget, there is the Nikon S32 $129.
Willing to carry a chunkier camera? There's the Nikon One cameras with PDAF and able to print a clean 18x12. The J1 kit is available for $249
I say why buy a compact camera when I have an awesome camera on my mobile phone.
Peter Albinger: Just what we need - another fuji sensor configuration that will produce raw files that will confound various raw processors.
I guess the failed experiment of the EXR sensor of my X10 (at least in terms of readable raw files) will be followed by yet another "out of the box" adventure that will provide users with lots of head scratching moments.
yes, we should all frown upon progress and innovation because too much head scratching makes People bald.
now this would be nice on a mobile that actually shoots raw, but not at that price.
KariIceland: Truly disturbing images, the one of the execution speaks volume more about the photographer rather than the ones doing the execution, the photographer is worse in my opinion in this case.
Kari, If one photographer could have saved that man's life then the war would have ended before it began.
Nice comparison, I had assumed they would all be in the same League more or less but each has their own character. I am still waiting for the Perfect lumia before I go back to Windows phone, hmmmmm, maybe a 1025 With more grunt under the Hood.
Raist3d: " There are those that will claim that physical dials for shutter speed, aperture and exposure compensation dials let them see their exposure parameters 'at a glance', but it's not a particularly strong argument. Let's be honest here, LCD screens do that too."
But what knobs and wheels allow you to do is see exposure settings at a glance when the camera is off. They also allow you to set the camera to settings *before* turning it on if necessary.
Bad analogy tjwaggoner, more like you can look at a car and see it is red, or you could film it and review it on your tv
Now I am finally impressed, looks like one of the kids might inheret my 808. Nice move supporting raw dng, very Nice.
I'd like to see what the upcoming raw support will do for the 1020's images. Maybe that will give 1020 the upper hand.
1520 looks like an interesting phone, nice hardware and camera apps, I just wonder if I could ever adjust to the size.
