Dazed and Confused: It's amazing how many people in the comments are just voting for phones they like, rather than for what this award is actually for - Best Smartphone CAMERA of 2017.

I know people out there love their headphone jacks, microSD cards and swappable batteries, but none of those are actually what this poll is about.

Actually, the headline and the poll title simply state “Best Smartphone,” leading to the confusion!

qunamax: There are so many new models and companies that I don't see a point in following it all while their features remain pretty much the same, just more and more gimmicks and useless stuff, There's so much to be done on PC and with proper camera and in life in general that I don't know where people find time to fiddle with their phones.

For folks with busy lifestyles, our smartphones are our most used item, by far.

Lightgreen: At RAW, the G1X III enjoys a sizeable noise advantage at ISO 3200 over the RX100 V. Wow. Wouldn't have expected it to be that sizable of a difference. Fascinating.
Lens is sharper then it's 1" counterparts, and the LX100. That's not surprising, but good to know.

The Sony lens is significantly faster, though, allowing the use of lower ISO at the same shutter speed.

Sdaniella: G1XMkIII
disappointed in seeing CA on WA lens end
(more noticeable in raw, than in ooc jpegs)

somehow common on every system, but the rare odd great WA Lens (too few amongst even ICL systems)

fixing in post not so ideal

whilst i lack CA correction in free LR Mobile (too bad), CA is easily brought out in raw pp whilst pulling shadows, upping vibrance, etc

free Photo Mate R3 does have CA correction, 3 levels, ... i tried maximum (of 3)
resulting in CA correction, BUT ... its algorithm buried the CA into the dark side of the high contrast boundaries, still visible: for both purple-blue and yellow-greens, in the dark side of edges :P

You are an interesting one...

On article Panasonic G9 added to studio scene comparison (168 comments in total)
In reply to:

Gravis: I compared RAW image with cameras that I have. This G9 is slightly, just marginally better than my Fuji X-Pro2 and Nikon D750 and actually on par with Nikon D810 (just less resolution). Impressive.

No way.

Sdaniella: Photo Mate R3

can handle newer proprietary raw, like Canon 6D2 CR2, which my current LR CC or Mobile cannot handle properly even if preconverted to DNG (never mind 6D2 CR2)

is "free" conditionally:
a huge solid-opaque advert (hardly "watermark") is plastered over saved full-rez jpegs
on lower left third corner of a 3:2 image (to unlock un-forced watermark, one must pay for upgrade)

upside: if it crashes ... (see below) it remembers last pp edits to "raw" image when returning back to continue pp raw where last left off before crashing

other downsides:
poor memory management: it likes to keep other photos in album in constant display at bottom = eats up memory unnecessarily

unlikely, i'll use PhotoMate R3 since free LR mobile alternate is non-"watermark" restricted, especially on raw of my actual cameras of use or of higher interest

i.e. exclude raw from cameras that do not yet work properly (like some newer beta 6D2&SL2 CR2; non-beta CR2 seems to work: baffling) in free LR mobile

you will get what you pay for

I don't know why so many posters on DPR want to skimp on software. It is a critical component of digital imaging.

Lusis100: All pretty simple take a photo with your high quality smartphone while texting .........feed it into a app with film presets .......... send it to snap rat or off my face book ........ print on a Fuji instant printer .................. tweet it ........ woloch, retro ground covered

Cool. I think it will be just a fun camera to play with. I think that is all it is intended to be, as well.

It’s only $6.50... just buy it if you use Android so extensively in your workflow

Fios Gigabit connection can handle it :-)

The issue will be the bandwidth and throughout needed to stream 8k video.

RedFox88: This should be cancelled due to the financial losses they just announced. SMH

We are just asking for evidence of the profitability you mentioned. You haven’t provided anything, and Kodak’s own financial reports lump film in with the CFD division, which showed negative earnings in the most recent report. Yet, we are the stupid people?

How do you know it is profitable, Davinator?

How is it profitable if it hasn’t even hit the market yet?

NickyB66: at that price is should (currently) be the best smartphone camera. Although I'm sure next year there will be a new 'best' and the current X will be at a lower price.

of course

On article Canon EOS M100 review (788 comments in total)
In reply to:

R N: Compared to the price of the G1x mkIII this is darn reasonable: roughly half price. True, G1x mkIII has more features, but the M100 can use the 22 f2 EF-m.

And it is svelte compared to the gangly-looking G1x mkIII. I like these Canon cameras more when they come in at a reasonable price point. :)

what evidence do you have that the G1x lens is so sharp?

In reply to:

thx1138: The new DxO Photolab also easily takes on LR, is faster, produces better output, has better lens corrections, better NR in PRIME and now has localised adjustments via masks or Nik control points. Given how poorly LR Classic is running on so many people's computers (just check the forums) I'm abandoning it for now other than for DAM. Between Luminar, DxO, C1 Pro, no need to touch LR.

When is dpreview going to ditch ACR for RAW conversion, when it's clearly been bettered for years now.

I get better results from ACR than from DXO.

In reply to:

sirhawkeye64: Aside from Macphun or any editors out there, is there just a RAW to DNG converter that can be used? I'm aware of the Adobe one,, but are there others, particularly that can convert a D750 NEF raw file into a DNG? Because at that point, I might just batch convert all my RAW files into DNGs (without the use of LR) and then just use my editor(s) of choice. Yeah, I'll lose the cataloging function of LR... (although being that I've got several years of programming experience, I could probably whip up a little catalog system of my own with tagging, etc. (I already actually looked into doing such a thing while back).

What exactly is wrong with Adobe’s converter?
