Boissez: Why is this camera listed as Semi-Pro while the E-M1 isn't?

Sure I'm just puzzled by DPR not pitting them in the same category. IT's pretty clear that they're both gunning for same market.

Menneisyys: "The device is powered by the latest generation Qualcomm quad-core processor 2.5 GHz Snapdragon S805"

Are you sure it's already the S805, and not last year's S800? There are confronting data on this - and Samsung's own specs ( http://www.samsungmobilepress.com/2014/02/25/GALAXY-S5 ) doesn't specify this either.

I *do* hope it's indeed the S805 and not the old S800. Even the Z2 has an S801 (a somewhat faster version of the S800).

It's the snapdragon 801. The 805 won't launch before 2014H2.

No real innovation in the camera department? I was at the launch and there are several things that are worth noting about that new camera.

First of all the camera adopts PD-AF which is a first in cameraphones and a very welcome addition.

Secondly the sensor uses ISOCELL technology to have a larger light gathering area per pixel.

And lastly the sensor is larger by some 10 percent.

JEROME NOLAS: OK, so where's 35mm(eqv.) f2.8 for $500? You have to use 24mm 2.8D
I had one during film era but it's almost three decadas ago...Nikon still makes so many old timers I can't believe it!!!

Pentax are the only ones making such a beast. In mirror less land, however, we have boatloads of them. MFT alone has like 5 or so...

Why did you pick the X-M1 over the E-PM2? They have the same score but the Olympus is at a much more beginner-friendly price point.

On Google working on RAW imaging for Android post (84 comments in total)
In reply to:

AstroStan: Phone camera sensors are so small with shallow the pixel capacities that do not benefit much from raw, except that even a shallow raw allows the user to choose the amount of sharpening, etc. The image file might be "16 bit" but the actual dynamic range of phone images does not need or really use that depth.

However, Google explicitly intends Android to be used beyond phone/tablets so it is only logical to add support for more advanced/capable devices. Aren't there already a few "real" cameras based on Android?

There is a handful of handsets that have 1/2.3" and larger sensors (Sony Z1, Z1s, Lumia 1020, 1520) . But as camera quality becomes more a differentiating feature that number is sure to explode in 2014.

webrunner5: Putting any other lens but the 20 1.7 on this will seem silly. But I would like to see a picture of it with the 20.

I'm sure the Oly 45/1.8 will handle nicely on it as well.

In reply to:

SteB: I don't get this camera at all. A superzoom camera, which is as large as a small DSLR, more expensive, and which in APS-C terms is about 140-150mm at the long end. In other words very moderate telephoto, and nowhere near the focal length of a superzoom.

It's quite a bit smaller than even the tiniest DSLR fitted with a 8x zoom. (It's about the same size as the FZ200)

The price is indeed bonkers though.

Bob Meyer: Not allergic to Apple. Not even allergic to smartphones. But I AM allergic to have what is supposed to be a camera site wasting time and resources on both when you can't keep up with reviewing real cameras.

There are plenty of cell phone review sites. You don't need to be another one. Stick to what your many thousands of readers came here for.

Problem is that none of those phone review sites take the time to do a proper review of the phones from a photographer point of view. It's nice top have a more photographer-centric point of view.

Plastek: Should have bought some Sony camera years ago. They got Sweep panorama mode long before anyone else implemented it.

Stitching images together is the easy bit. Doing it seamlessly and nailing the exposure is the hard part and it seems Apple has nailed that part too.

Mister J: Love the taste of Rene Magritte in these images, so I count as one of the arty ones and would like to view her show.

Vid didn't do too much for me though - probably better using micro-clips, and maybe a minute or so long.

(Edited for spelling)

Yup my first thought was Magritte as well. Or a Mike Oldfield album cover.

supeyugin1: 15m? They must be joking! It's not a camera for scuba diving. Must be at least 40m. Not a Nikonos at any measure.

Just don't go that deep. The light is usually very poor anyway below 10m or so.

krmuir: I look forward to similar articles when the next android, windows phone and blackberry operating system updates are released

The iPhones are the most popular devices on flickr and instagram. Thus it's not surprising that they get more coverage than less popular devices.

In reply to:

Juck: I thought the whole point of MILC systems was to reduce size? This behemoth is practically the same size as a Canon T5i,,, it's also double the price and has less resolution than the T5i. Heck,,, you could pick up a 70D for less than this thing.

Definitely one for the fanboys.

It still is significantly smaller than the 70D,

Yet it offers more features at half the weight.

whyamihere: Dear Olympus,

Cute camera.

Remind me again: Why am I paying $1400 for the image performance of a 3+ year old APS-C camera? ('Portability' isn't really an excuse. Don't forget, you are in a joint venture with Sony, a purveyor of tiny APS-C M-ILC cameras.)

Thanks!

Sincerely,

Everyone Confused By Your Price Tag (which should be just about everyone)

The images are virtually indistinguishable from the NEX-6. How is that a poor showing?

What you do get on top is pro-build, weather sealing and PDAF.

The functionality (lightning toggle/image resizing) is brilliant! However I would like the scene to have some more color in it - especially colored textures/fabrics as it can really punish poor de-bayering and heavy-handed NR.
