Dante Birchen: Just make a limited zoom or fixed focal length with 1 inch sensor tough camera. it could double as a street cam.

The Nikon is an ILC and it's water proofness has been unproven many times. The leica is aps-c which is great but to too big and expensive.

Shlomo Goldwasser: Lets face it, phone cameras are improving at a rate greater than large sensor cameras. This is no surprise as the R&D budget is greater.

For now, the gap between phone cameras and purpose built cameras is still large. But, I would find it useful for these phone cameras to be included in the studio comparison tool, to see them pitted against normal cameras, like the Nokia Pureview has been previously. This gives us an idea of how big the gap currently is.

I can do multiple array right now with my dslr creating panoramic shoots or something what people call the Brenizer method. :p So if phones start to emulated big sensors, I will start to emulate even bigger ones :p

In the end the gap is a physical one, because any advances on phone sensors can be applied on ilc sensors. ILC sensors are larger. The improvements of phone sensors are huge but mainly because they were very very bad.

mpgxsvcd: The vast majority of broadcast TV is still 1080i or 720p. Why again are we talking about 8K? Just give me 1080p @ 60 FPS H.265 for my TV and that will be significantly better than the over compressed 1080i that is available today.

Even with future compression technologies 8K is going to be over compressed. In addition I can’t even see the pixels in my 4K TV so why would I need 8K?

Let’s focus on getting good broadcast 1080p @ 60 FPS first. Then move to 1080p @ 120 FPS which is a universal format because it is evenly divisible by 24, 30, and 60 FPS. Give me well done 1080p @ 120 FPS and then you can start talking about taking resolutions to the extreme.

Future screens might well be wall sized. 8k would be useful then but bandwidth an processing power will have to catch up.

This is why anti-terrorism laws are dangerous. This may be simple incompetence but they can be used to violate our freedoms. Turkey is a prime example of that.

Dante Birchen: It's better to leave some noise than to smear it

Sony Sony Hallelujah Rishi, but it is just not true. The raw conversions have more detail. Just use the white balance eyedropper to get the jpeg colors in line.
