didida do da do da do da: For those who want to use it for long exposures:
It's not very useful yet, since it doesn't go over 1/2 s and it doesn't have any self-timer.

Currently the best app for timelapse is Hyperlapse from Instagram

Zebooka: Great app, but there is no:
1) change of flash or wb mode by tap. I have to press and select. But I would like to change them also in cycle by, for example, double tapping. Or... like shutter speed and ISO changed.
2) no HDR
3) no burst mode
4) no raw/tiff mode.

PS: wrong label for aperture. It should be not AP, but F:
The other variant - Av and Tv for aperture and shutter speeds.

I mostly agree with you )
2) can be implemented by programmer. As I've tested apple's HDR it looks like they shoot two photos - one for colors and highlights, the other how shadows. Then they get combined. Moving objects result in greyscale ghost borders in overexposured areas.
4) yes, but I would like to process them on Mac/PC

Just found another serious issue:
No way to select one of ISO, shutter speed auto.
They are either both auto, or both manual.

RStyga: 645Pro is the best RAW-output camera app for the iPhone that I've seen; it does not offer manual control, however, it offers AEL so you can point to a darker/brighter point and then AEL so that you force the camera to the exposure settings of your liking. Direct ISO control, though, is still not possible.

standard Apple camera can also do AEL/AFL and in iOS8 also has EV exposure control.

Rob Sims: I've been keeping an eye on these apps over the last week since iOS8 has been out. There's about half a dozen semi decent 'looking' ones currently out, but rather than waste time and 6x $1.99 experimenting with them, I'm going to play the waiting game until more user feedback comments. Currently the ones I'm watching are:
1- ProCamera 8
2- Manual
3- Reflex Camera
4- Manual Camera
5- Manual Cam
6- Camera+

Would be interested if anyone has positive/negative experiences with those (or other) camera apps...

Surely aperture is fixed. It is fixed on almost all phones. Except very rare or old ones

Nothing special now.
Same thing as bayer, but with Foveon's drawbacks.

In reply to:

Princess Leia: This is not innovation. Sony has been doing the phase detection autofocus with their SLT cameras for a while now. Having said that, it is nice to know Canon is playing catch up.

SLT works differently.

"Sky is falling, we are all doomed!" :)
In fact, I do not care anymore about Pentax. It is like first love — sweet memories, great photos left, but it was in the past. Mature love is not of bells and labels, but of process — taking photos. That's where all brands unite.

Nice features! But I do not believe in Android anymore. Only when OS will be updated by Google, not my lazy manufacturers (like HTC). Only when phones will be supported for 3-4 years (3GS iphone only now ends its iOS 6 support). And only when normal backups/restore from the box will exist (without that hacky-DIY things like flashing/fastboot/Titanium)

agenkin: A moron climbs the pyramids illegally and snaps a few ego shots. That could be newsworthy if presented properly, but not as some Indiana Jones type adventure story. Shame on you, DPreview.

Wash your mouth, be polite

In reply to:

Rosember: Do - nice, but nothing more - photos justify cultural disrespect and breaking protective laws? How many people will follow these guys and put damage to these monuments of mankind? To me, this resembles more a teenage ego trip than an adventure, sorry.

agenkin, you said so many times "moron", maybe you need to be more polite and wash your mouth, don't you think?
Pyramids are closed for climbing because of unprepared untrained tourists that can injure themselfs. These guys have lot of experience of climbing.

On CP+ 2013: Panasonic interview article (202 comments in total)
In reply to:

forpetessake: >"Uematsu explains the company's options: 'There are three solutions, I think: we can make a camera with a small sensor and a bright lens - like the LX7 or we could use a bigger sensor but with a slower zoom lens."
----
Whoa, somebody stop that guy, he's telling the company's secrets. If people with small sensors start understanding equivalense they will stop paying 10x for those 24-70 f/5.6 and 70-200 f/5.6 in FF world -- ignorance of the users translates into healthy margins, so let's keep it that way.

only in terms of DOF it has F:7.0
In terms of light passed it is exactly F:1.4.
The only problem here is sensor - because its pixels are smaller and gain less photons per pixel than in FF sensor.
But light passes per square cm is same as in FF camera with F:1.4

We need LX8 with GPS built-in!
And configurable ring (not just aperture) like in Oly XZ-2
Please! :)

It took me few years to start thinking of cameras as tools and do not "love" them as object. And to start feel magic from the photo itself, not from particular camera or film. Now I do not select any of my cameras as the most beloved one now and shoot photos using smartphone, compact, DSLR and TLR.

In reply to:

rrr_hhh: I thought that the 4.2 version was supposed to give you access to the full raw picture, even if you had chosen a cropped format. But nothing has changed here. I don't understand why something that simple, which C1 Pro is offering since years can't be included in LR and ACR. Even Olympus proprietary raw converter offers that choice.

It is really deceiving. Is it that hard for Adobe to understand that you can change your mind after the shoot, or that you need some of these supplementary pixels to straighten your tilted horizon without loss if possible ??

What exact cameras you are talking about?
Because Panasonic LX5 does NOT record all pixels. Only selected crop area.

In reply to:

robjons: I'm curious how big the sensor is, but I can never find your (DPR's) sensor size graphic. What do I type in the search to see it? Of course, it probably only shows FF as the largest...

Not too much bigger than fullframe 36x24
