Only thing holding off from jumping onto Sony from Canon is lens selection, Can anyone tell me if Sigma ART series is available ffor Sony E-mount (not the one which Sigma sells for A6000 - as those are not as sharp as 50F1.4 ART or 35F1.4 ART)
mjoshi: I'm using one, moved from iPhone to Lumia 1520 first because of camera quality, but lack of apps as well as limited feature set of existing apps made it a pretty much dud. Was thinking of going back to iPhone 6plus and came across LGG4. This thing is amazing when it comes to sheer camera power. Lot of manual control and dynamic range. Been using it for 4 weeks now and love mine.
Well most of native apps are lacking in functionality. Take FB, Waze, Instagram etc. If you compare feature to feature between different platforms, FB on Android and iOS have lot more features compared to FB on WindowsMobile.
te 2r: For cameras that shoot raw/DNG, I would love to see a conventional DPReview-esque examination involving exposure lattitude & ISO invariance tests. Because smartphone cameras have so little dynamic range, just how much DR can be squeezed out via "push processing" is something I'd like to know. (It'd also enable the comparison of smartphone cameras on a better basis, stripped of their JPEG processing black boxes.)
I'd also like to see a note regarding whether the camera fully supports "Camera API 2", which is part of Android 5. The new API allows 3rd party apps like Camera FV-5 to access full manual controls & raw/DNG. Unfortunately a lot of current smartphones go with their own proprietary solutions over API 2. Anyway, thanks for the review.
Lars I use mine on default manual camera app and so for mine have not crashed once in 4 weeks of use. Also my version is H815 (which is international unlocked version).

mjoshi: It says E-Mount so will this work with Sony A6000 or this is only meant for Sony A7 series ?
Only reason, there is very few native APS-C lenses that are really I want for my A6K. I already use Canon 6D for FF and A6K serves as backup. I've SEL 50F1.8 and I'm happy with that but need something on wide end and 28F2 is very appealing compared to Sigma 30F2.8 (which I've but not big fan of that lens).

JDThomas: Instead of these over-priced "photography" bags I usually buy tactical military bags designed for weapons. They are highly padded, ultra-durable, and about 1/3 of the price that these photo bag companies charge.
I could buy these in bulk sell them at twice the price and still come in way under what these companies charge for a product of lesser quality.
Looks good, do you need to be service member to order from link you posted or it is available to everyone ? Also is that the only color that it comes in ?
mjoshi: Does this thing have a capability to display focus point in RAW file same as Digital Photo Professional does for RAW files created from Canon camera ? It is important and comes handy when editing to see what was point of focus.
I know there are other softwares that will display it just like Digital Photo Professional does, I'd love to see focus points inside LR4 while editing in my pictures.

Am I the only one or others are also feeling same, between HX200V and HX100v only difference I see is increase of MP from 16 to 18, apart from that everything else is exactly same. Atleast they should have gone 24mm wide from 27mm.
welcome to high noise images with that 36MP - companies need to realize bigger is not always better.
citrontokyo: Good luck to them. The market needs the competition.
You are right, that is only way all companies will up there game and bring better products to market - including Apple.
People bitching and moaning about Nokia should watch this interview with one of designer behind Nokia products to understand what is their design concept. I appreciate you blindly praising Apple products but at the same time please give a credit where it is due.
ps - I own iPhone 4s but at the same time would love to see other companies coming out with great products.
Ibida Bab: Fail: too expensive.
Thank god you wont be buying one as it is too expensive. :)
marike6: The design looks like an old iPod Nano but with a bigger screen. Being influenced by Apple is one thing, copying it another. Zeiss lens, that pretty cool. To bad it's a phone, but I guess the line between the 2 devices continues to be blurred.
Looks like anything rectangle clearly resembles something from Apple, so did Steve invented rectangle ? :)
DPReview.com to remain fair and balanced (not in Fox news way) please post news about every other 8Megapixel sensor phones that are released henceforth. To start with HTC Titan has 8MP camera with F2.2 lens so that might be worth covering here. It is not fair to cover only Apple products related news when other companies are producing equally competant (and in some instances superior) products.
QuickDilation: All I want is Lightroom for my damn iPad, I want to be able to tether my camera to my iPad and use it like I do on my laptop... Then when I get back to my station I want to hook up my iPad and transfer what I shot... This does not in anyway do that! So adobe, stop selling me crap and telling me its like Lightroom... On top of everything you want me to adopt another cloud service on t of apples icould? and charge me!? Nope...
I think it is more in hands of Apple to allow iPad to be used in a manner you are prescribing with 3rd party apps. Probably once Steve leaves Apple will become less of control freak.
