On article Apple patent hints at super resolution camera mode (77 comments in total)
In reply to:

They call me Hans: I shutter (no pun intended) to think how much the phone that employs this will cost...

It's shudder. No pun for you!

And iPhones already cost a lot! I think that the entire "smart"phone idea has lost a lot of steam, and the camera is one of the few places where a company can try to differentiate itself.

digiart: I may be wrong but it looks like Apple is yet again copying other companies technology...

Actually, I think they're copying another company's idea. Even if Olympus isn't the first to do it, they should be considered the company who brought the idea back from the dead and popularized the idea once again.
Apple hadn't heard of it before, but when they did (because Olympus was in the news...), they thought it was a great idea, and figured out a slightly different method to produce the same thing.

Uh....or something.

GabrielZ: I think the new APS-C sensor is the one heading for the rumored Fujifilm X-Pro2! Here's hoping, looking forward to that camera a lot, as an X-E2 user myself.

Fuji uses Sony sensors. It's just the colour filter that's Fuji's own design.

PerL: Weight 586 g = combined with a m43 Olympus OM-D E-M1, 497g
= 1.080 g

And as comparison:

Nikon 20 1,8G, 357g, combined with a FF Nikon D750, 750g
= 1.107 g

"...lightness is supposed to be the main advantage of a smaller sensor system, right?"

Who said that?

I bought my Fuji X100 because it's small and lightweight. I didn't buy my X-Pro1 because it's lighter and smaller than a DSLR.

Petrogel: If this isn't an April's fools day article, then this will be my new tablet-workstation

Meh, I have edited 16 MP RAWs from Fuji cameras on a 2011 11-inch MBA with an i5 of some sort, and Lightroom runs quite well on it. It's not fast, but it's certainly manageable.

I wonder if the performance of this Atom cpu even matches my 3.5 year old MBA?

sderdiarian: Bad timing, DPR, Samsung releases the S6 in literally a couple of days and you use their outgoing model for a comparison? Makes you appear out of touch, which I know you're certainly not, so why?

There's always something new coming soon.

Don't write any reviews, ever. ;)

Toccata47: This article either turns a blind eye or worse, reflects ignorance of phone photography to such a degree that one must question the authors authority on the subject.

There are an array of sites that have this subject well covered. If dpr can't be an authority in this space it should get out rather than erode brand confidence.

One vote for closing down Connect alongside gear shop.

No crybabies allowed.

Buh-bye.

Cameracist: The sluggish camera startup is not true anymore for Luisa. For Nokia 1520 and 930 there was a complete remake of the Lumia Camera app, which is fast. Try the Denim version for yourselves:)

I have a Nokia 930. Bought it 3 weeks ago. It's not slow at all. Maybe it was, but right now, the app comes up instantly.

Also, the Nokia has a physical shutter button that launches the camera app when pressed. The iPhone is the one that's slow.

NJOceanView: I'm surprised they don't make a true laptop replacement -- huge screen, lots of RAM and more SSD space. It would be great for photographers to use it flat with a sylus for retouching, and would serve as a true alternative to other tablets. But at least it's a true Windows machine for those who like W8.

I'm not sure if this is sarcasm or not, but yeah.......the Surface Pro 3.

Wally Brooks: I have a Surface Pro 3 and use it in the field for offloading images and processing in lightroom. The Surface Pro has either i5 or i7 processors needed for using Photoshop or Lightroom and is a true laptop replacement. The Surface and its Atom processor may not be strong enough to run Lightroom and Photoshop. It would be great at off loading imqges in the field.

Core M has had throttling issues in all the machines I've read early reviews on (e.g. Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro), but that may simply be due to poor design.

I don't know about the new MacBook, but I doubt Apple would have released an all-new, ground-up product design like the Macbook if their machine sucked. Product modifications that don't quite work out (e.g. the first 13" MBP with Retina display)? Sure, but I doubt Apple would release something like the Lenovo Y3P, which is rather slow.

I'll wait for reviews to be released, but I think the SP3 is probably still the machine I'd get.

I wonder how well apps like Lightroom will work on an Intel Atom processor though?

The article does mention Lightroom, but if it's going to choke on an Atom cpu, I'd rather not waste my time trying to make this work for me somehow.

Perhaps it'll be useful for people who simply want to import images from their camera?
