duartix: By now I'm sure that Apple have a patent on copying ideas from other companies and patenting them. :)That's why they can do it but when others try, they get sued. :P
Apple have to do that after Samsung patented paid troll like you and SSantana75 to bad mouth other companies on internet forums.
JEROME NOLAS: More Mpx for what? I want a phone with a laser eliminator beam, printer and fax machine...:)
@Mister RobotoWhat did we talk about you using bad words?
digiart: I may be wrong but it looks like Apple is yet again copying other companies technology...
@SSantana75Please provide proof Ricoh has been using OIS for super resolution since 2000.
They call me Hans: I shutter (no pun intended) to think how much the phone that employs this will cost...
$650 without carrier contract, like how much iPhone usually cost.
Mister Roboto: Lol anything they can think of regardless if it already exists or not must be patented. iPatent =D
Why make your life miserable Apple? Just create a phone camera with larger sensor, optical zoom, 16-24MP and call it a day.
1. Michael Long is right because this is not super resolution through IBIS, Apple is doing this through OIS.
2. Apple filed the patent on November 8, 2012 way before the E-M5 II. In fact, no one has combined any form of IS with super resolution yet.
D1N0: The only camera that matter in an iPhone is the one in front. That can do without high res.
I am very sure the one on the back is bigger and higher quality as most people use that one to take photo.
The Apple patent was filed on November 8, 2012. Was E-M5 II released in 2012?
I come here expecting the idiotic Apple hating crowd to make a mistake and I wasn't disappointed.
Come on, get the FF K-1 out and please put a new SONY sensor inside. K-3 didn't do well against Nikon and hopefully Pentax improved its processing in K-3II
The only thing I like about this review is the cheerleader on the last page. The camera is so meah I don't think it deserve an award.
Back when A77 & A65 was coming out, DSLT sounds exciting with all the advantage of PDAF, EVF and none of the slowness associated with EVIL/mirrorless. 4 years later, the best EVIL/mirrorless camera from each brand can all match DSLT in speed while DSLR extends it lead in IQ. Frankly I don't see a point with DSLT anymore.
OMG, a GPS. At least one company listens. Now if only they added (back) popup flash. LOL. Nothing is ever perfect.
Based and registered in Shanghai. I wonder who decoded the Canon AF signal.
Combatmedic870: I think Zeiss may know something we don't know by releasing these FF mirrorless lenses. Other FF's on the way maybe from other companies?
Everyone knows there is a A7rII and A9 coming this year.
Fast prime + IBIS + FF = dream combo for 2015. Wish this tech is available in 2010.
Hoverboard review tomorrow?
DSLT will always have issue comparing with direct exposure cameras. SONY should focus on A7 and A9 series.
Angrymagpie: Why was the boy handled like that in the image?
Either cannot walk or staged.
Paul Petersen: I will have my interest piqued when they manage to build 4/3 & APS sized sensors with ExmorR technology to catch up with Samsung.
Samsung ISO performance is similar to current gen SONY 24mp APS-C sensor which is more than a year old.
"nine elements arranged in six groups". Isn't this kinda too simple for a super fast prime?
Mister Roboto: About time to move on to Windows world. Give it a rest, Apple is not serious (or not doing it seriously) in Photography at least with their iPhones and software like this.
Give it a rest Mister Roboto. You trolled enough on Apple articles the past three days.
The weird part is, with Apple's money and name recognization, they could easily build something to take on Adobe and Google Map/Search/Drive.
Coyote_Cody: Funny I posted about this yesterday in Canon M forum w/ zero responses? Not many inquiring minds??
A 'clever' solution to the thickness issue, not useful for larger sensors though, unless space is the big issue.
Likely easier to do very fast multiple exposures and then blend them via h/w algorithms (like HDR but for 'normal' stills) for both jpg or raw.
Hope the engineers who came up with this got big bucks in apple buyout !! Good work, big daddy buys, big bucks!!
Now Samsung must solve the same problem - no issue for them of course, they certainly have ALL the necessary skills, apple likely did not, buying is easier!!
Samsung is using SONY sensors again after the in-house ISOCELL sensor totally bombed in Galaxy S5.
