I said the same thing when I was reading all the responses in the first article, the majority of the posters had and still have no idea what this new tech is, the ones that did blew a gasket.

sop51: The only camera "settings" are aperture, shutter speed, selecting point of focus and ISO. Unless one wants to include flash units, locking mirrors, IS, filters, a tripod or in-camera image editing, like HDR, or some other app to achieve a preferred "look" (and, of course, cameras with tilts, swings, rise and fall), aperture, shutter speed and focus point are about it.

No matter how many sample images are analyzed, no AI program can pre-select the location, choose a subject, determine camera position, find a perfect time of day, wait for the desired lighting, or any of the many choices necessary to create an image that expresses a particular vision.

Perhaps a workshop with a great photographer would be best. They can take you to their favorite spots at the right time of day, tell you where to set up, pick a lens, etc. etc.

This is why you do what you do, and this guy does what he does, he is a robotics engineer.

Mike Davis: With this device I can turn my Sony a6000 into an iPhone camera with a good sensor and interchangeable lenses, but... There goes the challenge AND fun of making creative and technical decisions myself. In other words, I will no longer be a photographer.

Seriously, LMAO, you will no longer be a photographer, of course you will, you still have to see the canvas, frame it and press the shutter button, it's not like you are no longer going to be a brain surgeon.

This project of Andy Rubin is about AI automation technologies, the phone is just an extension of his project, I can write your an entire article of what his vision is and how he plans to achieve it, but you can watch the video from the horses mouth Andy Rubin and Essential at Recode. I know exactly what he is trying to do and it is genius.

ahaack: You have to ask why would some scam artists have better technology then Canon and Co.
One should never present a kickstarter project as something that will become a real product. These projects are some sort of fantasy and will never exist.
90% of the kicksarter tech projects fail in one or the other way. I lost 100s of Dollars on kickstarter.

Usually people with a big ego, two left hands and no engineering, production, management and what so ever skills come up
with lame idea, draw a box with some holes on paper and go to China and expect that they can siphon off all the profits and let the Chinese company do all the risk taking, research,  development, manufacturing, testing and management for a penny for them.

No, this is NOT the same thing.

Jon L: Photography is an intuitive process. Becoming a craftsman means knowing how to get there, Not letting some program design it for you. What have you really learned about photography if you let this happen without your input. I for one am against this and tell everybody to learn the craft, thereby creating your own style.
Use the best computer in the world – your brain! No machine will ever create your essence. To me this takes the enjoyment out of photography and makes everybody the same. Art is not meant to be a program.

Like I stated in a few of my other posts, you sound like a Pro that is crapping in their drawers. This is about getting the right shot the FIRST time, which means saved time, which means more time for more shots. I am sure you are the holy Grail of photographers and never missed a shot or crapped a bunch of them.

Andreas Stuebs: Quite frankly I think this is if not doa then not far from it. If it is considered helpful, then what keeps Nikon, Sony, Canon, etc. to reengineer the software and implent in the camera? If it is not good, then why should the big three worry? The best thing the developers can do after they have delivered their promised units is to sell the software to one of the camera makers.

Why should they do that, I wouldn't, why sell it to one manufacturer where you can sell it to the masses who use gear from every manufacturer.

sop51: Wow, just what photographers need. God knows photography was still way too difficult for the average person before this.

The negative comments you see in here is from pros crapping their drawers.

What comparable technology have you seen from Canon, Nikon, Sony, it any other DSLR manufacturer, I haven't. I hope this pans out, since the DSLR market has gone stale. I see quite a few pros in here crapping their drawers, reason for the negative comments.

Akpinxit: I think there are few apps that can do same as this device . Then of cause , if your camera doesn't have WIFI and you're not ready to work on your skills - pay the man .

This is not what you think it is. This will change the game, I see many pros in here crapping bricks with their negative comments.

And you will no longer take crappy shots, because each shot can not be taken twice, you all sound like the Holly Grail of photographers in here, which most of you are not. If this works out the way it says it does, it will help kick start the DSLR market back into gear, it has been hurting for some time now. Technology moves ahead people not backwards.

fyngyrz: The lesson Samsung *should* have learned from the previous generation:

Non-replaceable battery: Battery problem? Phone is garbage. Write off entire cost. Purchaser has nothing. Seller loses everything.

Replaceable battery: Battery problem? Send new battery. Preserve most of purchaser's value and seller's income.

What exactly are you talking about. The only Samsung phone that had issues was the Note 7, and that was a miniscule number of units compared to what they shipped out, the issue was with defective batteries, do you know how many phones Samsung's pushes out every year, after all those years a miniscule number of Note 7's had issues and everyone is acting like it's the end of the world, seriously, get a grip. Now regarding the S8,I think it looks like ass, who's bright idea was it to continue to manufacture all glass phones that are slippery as a bar of soap, what's the point of an all glass design when the first thing you need to do is sense it with a TPU case, and this coming from a S7 owner who learned the hard way about all glass phones, never again.

BigBen08: Same camera as the S7 ?
That's ok, I'll wait for the S9.

Why would your want to upgrade from the S7 to the S8, makes no sense, apparently you have money to burn, it looks like these companies have done a fantastic job with draining your wallet.

ttran88: Once upon a time we were forced to shoot with these big black boxes if you wanted to get respectable results. Thank goodness times have changed.

Good luck getting the same results with a smartphone, LMAO.

I am sticking with the initial version of this lens, it still takes fantastic pictures.

On article Google's Pixel phones: What you need to know (122 comments in total)
In reply to:

what_i_saw: This phone retails at around 1100 AUD in Australia. I will give it a pass. The Nexus line was aimed at people who wanted the best value out of their money without getting spammed by the funky changes Samsung and other vendors made to Android. Google has abandoned those people and is now targeting the brain dead people who worship Apple. Problem is that Sheeple will not be swayed in their devotion.
This phone is still born.
Expect massive price cuts down the line. Wait for that if you are really eager to have this phone.

Newsflash, Google said that the Nexus line is dead, it no longer exists, this is the new iPhone/Pixel, developing for this phone will be a nightmare, the Nexus line was pretty much a developers phone, that segment will be dead. You will need to forget about unlocked boot loaders and rooting with the locked down Pixel, Google just enhanced the tracking capabilities of the software in this phone, Google makes their money from advertising, and the more they can track your movements and who you contact and what sites you visit on a daily basis, the easier it is for their advertising partners who pay Google a boat load of money to follow you.
