The fact that the video is from 2013 means the market has rejected it. Good luck finding another person in the world who have a dongle on the phone. There is a good reason that world is going for WiFi, because it is universally available.

joe6pack: I would like to see a comparison with a cropped image from a FF sensor using a cheap 300mm prime.

No! 2000mm on P900 is a 35mm equiv. focal length. The actual focal length is 357 mm.

If you use a 357 mm lens on a FF camera and crop out a 5.6x or 1/31 of the photo from the center, it will give you the size of P900 image. Of course, even if you have a 50Mp camera, it will leave you with less than 2Mp. But that's not as important as it sounds as their surface areas are about the same.

That is a zoom lens.

Since P900 has a 1/2.3" sensor. Its area is similar to a FF using a 360mm lens.

Can someone clue me in whether the contract discussed here is a contract for any ticket holders who plan on taking photos in her concert?

Or is it only for pro photographers who want to take photo for profit, up close and in places otherwise not accessible by a regular ticket holder? Is the photographer hired by the concert?

$1000 camera phone and the only thing that protects the lens is thin air.

On Samsung Galaxy S6 / S6 Edge camera review post (91 comments in total)

slideup: I find interesting that Samsung is using a 16:9 Aspect Ratio sensor to better match today's Smartphone, Computer and TV screens. The images at full display actually show Full Screen, no pillar bars or crops and is great for multiple person wide angle shots as well. I love this smartphone and i will buy it tomorrow.

Except many people take their photo in portrait mode. And it will look very skinny on an HDTV.

On Sony RX100 IV compact shoots 4k, uses a stacked sensor article (303 comments in total)

I wish it is also dust resistant like the RX10 II. All my compacts literally "bite the dust".

joe6pack: The ISO 125 studio photo seems to be out of focus. The ISO 3200 looks sharper in comparison.

I'm not seeing what you are seeing. Take a look at the "Queen" card (default for low light test) at ISO 125. The Queen is clearly blurrier than the Galaxy Note 4.

"alternatively one of the slots can house a microSD card" - I don't think I have seen that before. Very interesting.

Now hackers all over the world is going to exploit this. I suspect this issue is not limited to DNG file. It could be .ARW, .CRW or even .JPG as long as the metadata in question is malformed. Watch out!

Snikt228: It's interesting and at first glance the $399 lens is a good deal, but when it requires a $300 adapter it pushes it to the doesn't make sense anymore realm. Unless of course you already have the adapter or have a lot of M-mount lenses which might benefit.

Would have made much more sense to just make it native E-mount especially since it's designed for only A7 series.

The Hexanon 40mm F1.8 is not big at all as the AR-mount has one of the smaller FFL

There are plenty of decent 35mm F2.8 legacy lens going for less than $100 with adapter. Not to mention that at 40mm, there are even F1.8 lens at a reasonable price.

Marty4650: Leica virtually owns this market. Expensive, but where else can you get an extremely high quality monochrome camera?

This isn't a camera for me, but Leica knows what they are doing. They understand their customers.

I'm just stating the facts. B&W picture is free of chroma noise which is what most people considered noise. By shooting in B&W, you can go very high in ISO and people aren't as bothered by the luma noise and many consider them "artistic".

Turning color photo into B&W does not just remove chroma noise. The chroma noises are converted into luma noise. But I don't believe Monochrom sensor is much better. I have seen M-Monochrom samples. There are still significant noise at ISO 2000. Not a whole lot better than my camera from the same generation.

My image after B&W filter is free of chroma noise.

I grabbed this low hanging fruit with my existing camera with a B&W filter. I can easily go ISO 12800. Cost me $0.
