On article OnePlus 5 camera sample gallery (96 comments in total)

Hi DPR, I guess you have to redo the sample images. I was not able to find the huge digital artifacts in sample photos of another review site.

Looking at the sample photos, they're quite better than expected and then after a few moments I realized it is too good for a 1/2.8" sensor. I decided to pixel peep in the low ISO photos, it blew up to my face the massive software magic done to these photos. It still doesn't have storage expansion with a launch price higher than ever before. Most disappointing OnePlus

regardless with the weakness and quirks of the Foveon, it renders the red better than conventional sensors

If those falling prices are indication, we might see new DP Quattros with the APSH sensor.

OlyPent: NASA needs to be reminded of its mandate: Explore SPACE. Too much looking down, to much global-warming band-wagoning, space is being ignored while the $200B orbiting white elephant, the ISS, still contributes just about nothing. Thank goodness the ultra-productive Hubble Telescope is still working. And at 1/75th the cost of the ISS. People will remember Hubble's "Orion nebula star nursery" image LONG after they've forgotten the Black Sea shot.

True but it is not the root of the problem but budget allocation. A small fraction from Defense greatly benefits Science and Tech research.

I disagree it is only in its infancy just like the early days of PCs and PDAs or smartphones. Many companies are jumping into VR, AR, or XR now as to not be left behind and gain a lot of experience before it gets ubiquitous.
I believe this will be the next computing device next to smartphones after a decade. I could imagine that we will follow each update/upgrade of a VR device as we do with smartphones today.
VR, in the future, will be primarily used to consume content in the internet as the smartphone did versus the PC. Yet, VR can also be used to create content for it such as creating art, designs, and etc. I could imagine a more compelling computer aided design (CAD) in VR.

Apple still gets it. I am dreaming of a device with faster display refresh rates.

Wow. Actually, there's too much too going in such a short video. My favorite is the scene at 2:40 where the color changes from bright orange to purple.

Intriguing that Microsoft has a take on this one. Probably they find Sony's implementation with many difficulties, thus, only producing a single product from 2014, the selfie camera.

In reply to:

keepreal: 35mm cameras often used to be described as miniature cameras but body and glass sizes and weight are growing like a cancer.

This is yet another lens whose weight is ludicrous. If you really need a lens this fast and it had to be as heavy, then fair enough. However, the huge increase in size and weight of many lenses since digital took over from film is only because lenses designs rely heavily on computers and manufacturers are content to allow this regardless. Why buyers put up with it heaven knows.

Due to the popularity of high performance lenses regardless of size and weight which Sigma started. Personally, I would like Nikon to release a pancake since Canon has one for each mount, EF, EF-S, and EF-M.

The Asus Zenfone 3 Zoom couldn't come any faster to the rest of the world. Its dual camera implementation is the best yet. I don't need dual cameras but I wouldn't mind getting it as the sensor and lens specifications are on part to a single camera flagship smartphone. The AMOLED display also helps to appreciate the captured photos.

April fools? :P Can't recall the last time they reviewed a Sigma camera.

Great for static images or work but not ideal for other use. It left out the latest features like HDR, high refresh rates, or variable refresh. Contrast ratio is also lagging compared to OLED which can be had for half this price.

It looks pretty consistent to me. The quality of the poster, the trailer, and the movie itself are on par. This latest Spider-Man feels fast-food quality or intended for the children.

Nice. I am convinced. This is a nice alternative to the Mavic at almost half the price. Unfortunately, I bought the Mavic around two months ago and has been used in one vacation. Mavic is pricey device for casual use. I would have to make money from content to justify its cost.

Internet Enzyme: Seems kind of expensive for those specs.

It is expensive if you look at the device alone. Compared to other high quality drones, this is a good buy compared to the excellent but more expensive Mavic. The Mavic is too powerful and expensive for casual use.

They have to make the lens barrel look so large to appear it is a serious camera but it is essentially a smartphone camera with inferior specs.

tkbslc: This was already outdated when it launched in Europe last year. It's got the same sensor and lens as a 3 year old Sony Xperia and very little to get excited about in terms of phone hardware.

If you want a cheap camera centric phone, check out the new Asus Zenfone 3 zoom. It has dual wide + normal cameras like the iphone 7+, but it costs less than this Kodak.

True. This Zenfone 3 Zoom couldn't come to us fast enough. I'm also glad ASUS finally went to OLED display. Battery capacity is also huge compared to its battery sipping SoC/CPU.

Rdefen: Technically excellent but difficult to watch.

I think this is more of a demonstration of their abilities than to show beauty. Their target audience must be TV producing companies to sell their time lapses for use as demos in showrooms.
