On DxOMark Mobile Report: Apple iPhone 6 post (68 comments in total)
In reply to:

Faisal Armand: The texture & noise score of iphone 6 is only 73 & 71. That is enough to justify that it is still far below S5, Z2, 808, and 1020

I have both an iPhone 6 and a Nokia 1020 -- it's no skin off my nose whichever wins. The Nokia takes 7712x4348 pics and the iPhone 2048x1536. The Nokia captures RAW and can be processed in DxO Optics Pro 10. Image quality? No contest. The Nokia wins hands down, as we should expect. Does it matter? Depends on how much you use/rely on the phone camera. Or how much processing you want to do. The iPhone does better colour/exposure the Nokia better detail/noise. For serious stuff it is Nokia -- for snaps it is iPhone every time.

On Opinion: The myth of the upgrade path article (1408 comments in total)
In reply to:

goblover: Richard, I think you should add more information about lens compatibility. Some people(cough, Tony Northrup, cough) said that, after looking at DXO Mark comparison, FF lenses are actually not that compatible with APS-C bodies, and we are talking lenses and bodies in the same brand. The FF lenses are not as sharp if used on an APS-C body.

Another topic and a question now. I myself am thinking of never go full frame. Even then,if you want to have several good lenses for your system, it will be quite costly. I am thinking of having two bodies in a system, a compact pocketable one and a more serious one. Right now I'm looking to the Panasonic system with GF6 and maybe GH4 bodies, with 20mm 1.7, 12-35 and 35-100 2.8. What do you think, is that setup better, or just go with a full frame camera and lenses and one premium compact?

Yes yes yes. I have bought an embarrassing number of cameras and lenses and have taken a million or so bad photos with all of them and several satisfactory pictures with all of them. Sensor size and camera form is basically boys-toys talk.

On harishvaradhan in the MobilePhone: Water challenge (16 comments in total)

Cheat schmeat. I am jealous. Forty-three pals who like you so much that they will register with dpreview just to vote for you ... that is amazing. Following this chap's example I thought I would do the same, but after counting up the number of friends who would do this for me I got to a grand total of three, which is pathetic compared with Harish. Such a popular chap deserves his win.

This is sad news indeed. Actually I don't know why I should care what happens to a company, but in this case I do. My first camera (1951) was a Box Brownie. My first 35mm camera (1956) was the gorgeous Retina 1b.(I now have a collection of folding Retinas.) My first colour film was Kodachrome. The excitement of waiting for the little yellow box to turn up in the letter box was almost intolerable. For B&W I used Kodak film. And the tragic irony of it all is that the first working digital camera was created in the Kodak R and D laboratory. How could a company contribute so much to the development of new technology and yet fail to grasp the benefits? It's as though they invented Kodachrome and then gave it away.

Gorgeous! 8th place is ridiculous. What a farce this Challenge has turned out to be.

Yep. The winner. So my mother's aphorism that "cheats never prosper" turns out to be untrue.

This is a beautiful photograph. I guess that the only reason it didn't rank higher is because it is not funny -- but as a photograph it is the winner.
