On 'See Impossible': Canon counts down to... something. article (1659 comments in total)
In reply to:

Mongrel: Whatever it is...if it doesn't come close to meeting the anticipation created by the ad copy it won't be received well here (and other photography sites).

I'm sure many of us would love to see something truly exciting and innovative (like a Canon/Sigma Foveon partnership that results in a truly "new" sensor technology for Canon for instance). But barring an announcement of that stature this could result in even further damage to Canon's relationship with the pro and enthusiast user.

Looking forward to seeing what they announce for sure.

After those strong and cocky words. They need to deliver something truly amazing or they will be mocked by Nixon and everyone else.

Look at the Canon business logo.
Unfortunately, it might not be a camera.
If it is, I want a low MP camera with the dynamic range of the human eye...
That's all.

ShadowVlican: specs old or not, i'm still interested in how it compares with the older iphones and current androids

be sure to get one and review it asap!!! connect.dpreview always seems to take much longer to review a phone than other tech sites :(

DPReview still hasn't reviewed the Canon's flagship 1DX or Nikon D4 from 2 years ago... ;)

The key to Apple and why it always had and still has the best products in the market is integration and its ecosystem.
Some people own a PC and have an iPhone and a no-brand cheap Tablet...
There is no continuity and no wait to merge all those devices.
Now, owning a Mac Pro, an iPad Air and an iPhone 5s, everything is familiar and completely integrated.
That is why the new OS X is going to be tied to iOS8.
It's a brilliant move by Apple that will lure millions of iPhone/PC owners to move to Macs to take full advantage of the ecosystem.
I think this is going to put the Mac back in the game. Or at least, it will increase it's PC market share.

lensberg: Is it true that there's no expandable storage for either phone...???!! No memory card ---------> No sale...!!

I have 23,200 photos, 32 videos, 1000 songs, 108 apps and 11GB of documents and other things on my 64GB iPhone 5s and I still have 2GB left.
Imagine DOUBLE the storage... 128GB is a s**tload of space... I can't wait

mumintroll: New apple is biggest fail I ever seen.

Dude, they sold out the iPhone 6 in a matter of hours. Where is the fail?
Now, people who were buying crappy Samsungs solely for their screen size will have a nice paper weight. Also the resale value of a phone that changes 20 times a year is crap as well...

In reply to:

AndriyM: People, new iPhone looks really similar to Samsung. But remember, that first iphones were the same form. Samsung started selling it's first smartphones only 2,5 years after. Apple was first with such form and exterior design.

Lars, screen size is not a patent or an idea or a design...

JordanAT: $500 for the Plus/128 *on contract*? Wow, that's a pretty tough pill to swallow. That makes it, what, about $1000 unlocked/off contract? Whatever you do, don't drop it in the toilet or fall into you pool with it in your pocket.

I got mine on ATT Next 12 Plan. As a customer of 7 years with ATT, they suggested I switch to Next to be able to upgrade to a new iPhone once a year without any penalties or contracts.
I chose the Plus 128GB at $949 but will pay 12 installments of $47.50 ($570) plus $9.99 monthly for the Mobile protection plan.
The best news is that at the end of the lease, I will trade in the iPhone 6 and get the next model up, whatever name it will be... :)

In reply to:

alexpaynter: The camera module is not the same because it has a new sensor. You can argue that the depth of the module must be the same because all other factors are the same, but they aren't.

I don't know if this is the case with the iPhone 6 but new sensors tend to be able to take light in from wider angles (the isocell is an example of this) and therefore the lens depth can be less.

Having said that, I hate the protruding lens. The could have made the camera the same depth as before with a flush lens and a much bigger battery.

I think I will just wait for sony z3x (if it isn't just someone's fantasy creation). I am not sure how you can fit a 2/3" sensor with an f1.2 lens in such a thin phone without any protrusion.

I love the design, but to be honest, the camera lens should have been flush. That means the phone will not sit flat on any surface... It will have a little play but it will make it easier to pick up... We'll see next week :)

In reply to:

alexpaynter: Can someone explain how you can do HDR in a single shot? And if you can, why would you use any other mode? Are there disadvantages to using this mode?

I can't wait to experience HDR video. It should be amazingly accurate. Also 1-shot HDR... I don't know how they do it, but I am excited about it. I don't believe the burst mode will be HDR but I don't care as long as I get more dynamic range on a single photo.
Can't wait!

aerorail: welcome to 2012 iphone 6 so the saying goes....

look at samsung phones before 2007 and the iPhone. They are copy masters. Everybody is suing them, not just Apple.
Their advertising campaign is just based on attacks and mockery of Apple products. It's low and distasteful, not to mention, DESPERATE...
I pre-ordered my iPhone Plus, Space Grey with 128GB... Samsung doesn't even have a 64-bit, 128GB phone. Next year, the probably will... Copycats

In reply to:

mpgxsvcd: The Note Edge has peeked my interest. I am going to wait for that one.

The Edge Will probably last a Week in one piece.
Plastic body and unprotected side glass is a magnet for major damages.
Also what happens if you are left handed? They should have made the phone vertically symmetrical so you can turn it upside down and use the edge with your left hand.
I can't wait for next week. It's gonna be awesome! ;)

On Accessory Review: Drobo Mini RAID article (149 comments in total)
In reply to:

The Squire: If you need high capacity, resilient, high performance file storage... Don't work on a laptop. Buy a workstation and kit it out properly. It'll cost you less, give you more options, and perform better. Forget about expensive, compromised, external disk drives for anything but off-site backup.

That's my way of thinking as well... Laptops are limited in all aspects. Smaller means slower.

On Accessory Review: Drobo Mini RAID article (149 comments in total)

Ridiculous. At $419 plus at least another $1000 in SSD's to get 320MB/S speeds?
BS!
That's why I keep my 2010 Mac Pro. I have 7 Internal hard drives in it plus a 1TB PCI-e OWC Accelsior SSD with speeds of over 800MB/s.
No external cables, power supplies or cluttered desktop. Just a big box which takes as much space as a laptop and has more power than the new Trashcan Mac Pro.
I also have USB 3.0 but no thunderbolt but who needs it anyway.
The Drobo is a ripoff...

On Nikon D810 Preview preview (1575 comments in total)

I don't shoot Nikon but use ACR. Why would you want the clarity style to be on by default? I think the more naked the image, the better. You can't go back and undo an in-camera effect.

This will be pretty awesome, if it works as advertised.
I have the pocket wizard mini TT-1 with the AC-3 using Einstein flashes. I can control the power of up to 3 flashes individually but the system is not perfect and already 2 AC-3's died on me.
I couldn't find the specs for my studio flashes. I hope it works.
