Michael Ma: I want bigger sensors, more dynamic range, raw for photo. higher bitrate, color gradability with more dynamic range for video. Manual controls, optical stabilization would be next. More megapixels is not even in my top 10, or even top 100. In fact, I'm willing to trade my 13 megapixels and go sub 10megapixels for better noise performance. Am I in the minority? I own a Galaxy Note 3, and every time I attempt to use it for even semi professional work, it just is not good enough. It's always, "what was I thinking, I should have brought my Canon", or "I should have brought the GH3". There must be not one honest professional photographer/videographer in the world of smartphone engineering. But plenty of engineers who understand the engineering of image capture, but have no sense of what the real world requires.
Well of coarse you want what you mentioned. We all would like the features you mentioned in a super small package but as you should know physics doesn't allow it and MP sell. The bigger the sensor gets the bigger the lens gets and starts to defeat the object of a camera phone as it become the size of a decent camera. Given your apparent knowledge in the technical aspect of photography this is something you should already know.
Shame it once again has crap AE bracketing that Sony thinks is unimportant or is trying to convince us that we need a top of the range/expensive camera to achieve which of coarse is pure non-sense (i have cheap compact that achive superior bracketing). How many amatuer and professional reviews does it take to convince Sony of this? Come on Sony WAKE UP!!!!
snake_b: Hmmm...I guess I'll wait for 5DIII's to hit the market and buy a 5DII and a 24-70 on the cheap.
Me too :)
36mp ridiculous and pointless!
