  • Ah, not sure how I missed that. Wasabi has a pretty good reputation, in any case.
  • Watson has a good reputation, so this is great news - thanks!!
  • This will be great for photojournalists who are increasingly expected to bring a live element to their work, using things like Facebook Live to publish video real-time. Their options are pretty...

  • The P9 is a great phone. If you're in a country that has it with a warranty and a way to get it serviced/replaced and find a great deal on it, I would recommend it highly. It is still my favorite ...
  • This feature alone would push me to get the P10. It is the one thing that was really "missing" from the P9.
  • Replied in S8...
    I think it's brilliant, personally. One of the best looking phones ever made. Definitely poses some problems though. They've done a good job generally with hand rejection on the sides, but I've ...
  • Replied in S8...
    Definitely agree that there's more than just the numbers here. I've been using the S8 since it launched and like it in general. Even their selective focus algorithm had gotten better, and it's ...
  • Great! That means the image quality of the P10 is really, really good. The truth is that nearly all of the top phones from various manufacturers are producing really, really good images from a ...
  • You're missing the point a bit. It isn't just about the quality of the images the camera it produces, it's the overall experience of the camera. There's nothing "magical" about it -Huawei has ...
  • The P9/P10 can do both. It's an excellent point and shoot, but if you end up "stuck" in a particular situation (typically indoors in low light) the "manual" controls are there to bail you out. ...
  • Replied in No comparison...
    You can't really compare the two, IMO. The Pixel has great resolution and good HDR for landscapes, but I find it completely lacking as a creative tool. The Huawei's camera app is better suited to ...
  • Robin's take is much like my own experience with the P9. Huawei has something really special on their hands. I'm glad to see they added the Aperture Effect mode to the Monochrome mode  on the P10 ...
  • Dunno, never felt slow to me! I'm using the S8 these days.
  • I think it depends on how you define "camera quality", and how you expect to use the images. There's a bunch of great resources out there documenting how much detail a camera can reproduce, etc. ...
  • Replied in GM1/GM5
    As a cyclist myself, I'd lean toward something weather-sealed such as the E-M5 or E-M1 if you're okay with the size. That said, my personal favorite for biking is the GM1 (GM5 would be great too) ...
  • I should have mention that there was part processing on those in SnapSeed, which is where the (over) saturation comes from. But you can shoot with three different kinds of processing for a bit ...
  • I've used a lot of phones that have tried to do this with one lens, and none have been able to pull it off very well. So yes, it's possible, but I doubt that Apple is doing this. Keep in mind ...
  • Replied in More P9 Examples
    No sweat. Here's a few more from dinner with my kid last night. Love this phone.
  • Not sure how this is possible without the dual camera setup on the 7+, since it's what enables them to do all the depth calculations needed to emulate this effect?
  • Replied in Huawei P9...
    I love the Huawei P9 for this. Here's an example straight out of camera, using the default settings with the DoF emulation mode. From this default, I could make the effect more or less extreme, and ...
