onlooker: "Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer spins as a positive for her company's outlook" -- Her? Not for long.

She hasn't done a thing for Yahoo....has run it into the ground actually; and yet is likely to be rewarded with a $219 million golden handshake (about 4,216 times the average American household income)...corporate America is gross.

They seem to be keen on saying it is made in Germany. Are Germans the best at colour management?

Wonder if the keys are in that car and if it works.

Where are the interchangeable lenses or 25X zoom?

Greynerd: In a way is nice to see such a convincing demonstration from one of the smartphone producers themselves of the major inadequacies of their products.
Long live real cameras.

Hey..sorry, but I don't like them. Perhaps I have a keener eye ;-)

I have used: Nexus, Nexus 4, Nexus 5, Samsung 6 and 7, as well as Note, and Apple 5, 5s, and 6, and one HTC I forget the name of and two Blackberry's.

They don't cut it for me....but we agree, they are only useful for the "Facebook and Instagram folk", which I am not a part of. And that crowd is happy with substandard pics.

Oh and don't forget the most obvious issue...no zoom!

Enjoy your phone (and the drapes) :-)

I said "perhaps, under perfect conditions" and this is true...try shooting and not get blown out highlights or other issues I have stated. I'm not happy with that. If others are great, but when someone really wants a memory, a real camera has no equal. Phone cameras are portable, that I give you, and I do use them. Have you ever PRINTED a phone picture past 4x6? I have, with a multitude of different cameras...no contest. No contest at all. Even on 4x6 one can easily see the difference. I have also been on a number of cruises and to resorts...they say their on-site photography business has never been better because of the camera phone. People only bring a camera phone and end up being disappointed, so they pay the cruise or resort photographer a TON to get their memories. Camera phone quality is not there yet. But for the Facebook and Instagram folk, it is fine.

Sorry Eric, I can spot them a mile away...poor iso performance, no depth of field, horrible noise reduction. If you believe they are equal, keep smoking the drapes.

Love your comment. I always use a real camera, D300, at my kids events. I am one of the few that bothers to bring one. Yet when others cannot get any pictures with their cell phone "cameras" they inevitably walk over and ask me to take pictures of THEIR kids. This happens often over and over and over with most parents there. Cell phones CANNOT take good pictures except, perhaps, under perfect conditions. They cannot compete, except for portability.

DocS: Apple has gone too far on this one.

Cell phone photography and video has proven to be an extraordinarily useful way of documenting events and discerning fact from hearsay and rumor.

Police misconduct. Terrorism. Other crimes. All of these things can be caught with cell phone cameras, they can occur anywhere, and we can record them As we see fit.

For Apple to propose a mechanism for taking away our ability to use our cell phone cameras at our discretion is an outrage.

this won't work for jail broken phones

Biowizard: Hahaha! Best laugh of the year, and need it after #brexit!

So Apple would actually cripple its iPhones while Samsung and Sony continued to allow filming any any location?! Yeah, right! That would SO improve sales figures, NOT.

Brian

Samsung is not stupid, they won't copy a stupid feature of a product that has 13% of the market. Android is so large because it has made better decisions.

fuxicek: There should be easy way around this patent, just activate "airplane mode". Unless they come with a new patent, that allows you to turn on the "airplane mode" only on airplanes and nowhere else....

The easiest way around the patent is not to buy the end product. Lemmings will always buy the fashion though.

In reply to:

Exteban: Because many companies prohibit personally-owned cameras on their campuses, it will be very appealing for employers to provide this to their employees then disable the camera at work. This is how Blackberry stayed in business. They offered phones without cameras, which were eventually the only ones that many corporate users were allowed to have once every competitor's phone came with a camera.

And where is Blackberry now?

In reply to:

fmian: What they should do is put a chip in every camera and give you an account so you have to pay $x.xx in license fees in order to take a certain amount of photos in specific locations. Like a road toll. That way people will think before they pick up their cameras, and might choose to enjoy the scenery instead of live their life through their device. Plus it will bring the value of photography up among the general public.

Drivel Kirk....just drivel.

guest2015: why not completely disable everything everywhere. i use only android so not a problem. let apple do whatever

I'm Android too....this is another move by Apple to further sink it. Android as over 80% of the market as it is...with Apple around 13-14%. The world is catching on to the Apple fashion show. This so-called camera blocking feature is just another handbag nobody needs.
