As much as I like chromebooks, this doesn't seem like a particularly viable product.
This kind of makes it a tough call now. I was set to order the Moto X Style(Pure) and now these pop up. Good time to be buying an unlocked phone, I guess.
It's probably the same sensor as, or a close cousin to, the Iphone 6s sensor. It has 12MP and 1.5 micro pixel pitch, too.
Retzius: This seems to be a solution in search of a problem. "I love taking pictures with my phone but just wish it had a bigger sensor" said no one ever....
If you are that involved in image making you will carry a camera. If you are happy using a camera phone you will just carry a phone. The market for this problemless solution is incredibly small.
Nah, I realized I was arguing with cinder blocks.
DxO has them at second place with a 3-way tie.
jhinkey: Too bad they don't cover full frame . . . .
Samyang has a few dozen FF lenses. It's our turn!
KAMBIC: I hope you guys have all been practicing your MF skills. F1.2 MF only? Hahaha
Now you've built up a strawman. Nobody said MF was superior. They said that it isn't as hard as you condescendingly implied.
Silly logical fallacies............
BadScience: get your equivalence bingo cards ready
I don't acknowledge Pentax Q.
135mm f3.2 on Nikon 1 (sadly not available)100mm f2.4 on m4/3 80mm 1.9 on EOS M 75mm f1.8 on Fuji/Sony
All would be excellent portrait primes with good DOF control, so not sure if it matters.
This comment probably seems clever to those who haven't seen how focus peaking and magnification boxes work on mirrorless cameras.
Pandimonium: No NX-mount. What does Samyang (manufacturer, it's just called Rokinon in the states) know what we don't?
That Samsung's mount depth is not as shallow as the other mirrorless mounts.
Combatmedic870: 21mm apsc.....that's an interesting one....31.5mm
Half way between 28 and 35. Seems like a nice compromise that is wide, but not TOO wide. I really like my Panasonic 15mm (30mm equiv) for that reason.
Mirai Dorloba: Why no full frame version?
Cane: I assume these are manual focus only?
Definitely manual only.
Jazz1: So what would this 75mm (35mm on a a Sony APS-C) be best used for.
Typically one would attach it to a camera and use it to project an image onto the sensor.
JackM, that's EXACTLY what I said about the DxO One. I just don't agree that people who use phones have no concern with image quality.
tkbslc: It's as expensive as a Canon G7X, with the same image quality, but I can't use it without a phone attached. Instant fail.
It's definitely capable of great output, it's just in a form factor that makes zero sense for 99.9% of us.
Keep tripping on my words instead of what they mean. Enjoy your DxO one and shooting with no viewfinder.
51% is a majority. I used "Vast" to indicate that it was more lopsided than that.
All of us have "chosen acceptable over best". We all just want the best level of acceptable for our given budget and convenience preferences. Even a FF camera is just a convenient alternative to the "best" option of shooting medium format on a tripod under controlled lighting.
You can care about image quality and still not be willing to use more than a phone. I can't believe I even need to argue this. Compare iphone 6 and Galaxy 6 photos to photos from a $14 tracfone flip. Obviously there is a wide range of options there.
I agree with you there, and have said that. I just don't agree that "said no one ever" about wanting nice image quality in a phone. It's a solution for a problem that does exist, it just isn't a very practical solution.
Would be cool if it had it's own little flip out LCD. Then I could use it with or without phone. and it would be pretty pocketable. I guess it could only be about a 2" screen, but at least it would be something.
