  • CameraPixels is a completely different app by a different developer than "Camera+" (never used Camera++)
  • It's in there, I've used it. Not the most intuitive UI sadly, so it took me a while to figure it out.
  • Optical Image Stabilization What the camera is metering can vary pretty wildly within a given scene, so it's easy to imagine that the camera might struggle a bit here if it was right at the ...
  • Are you working with enough light? I know the iPhone will use the wide camera when light gets low so that it can use the OIS from the wide camera (there's no OIS on the tele camera). Other than ...
  • Well, unfortunately I think that in this case an iPad is pretty well ruled out since you're locked into the device's storage. But at this point looking at the market, and what I know as someone ...
  • Very interesting, thanks for sharing.
  • Replied in Untrue...
    I honestly don't know the state of the lower spec phones. Bad AMOLEDs are really bad. They earned a bad reputation early on, so I would be careful.
  • Replied in Untrue...
    I get what you're saying here, but that's really not the case with OLED. Samsung led the charge to OLED at a point where I would certainly say that the technology wasn't mature enough. But ...
  • Replied in Untrue...
    For a while the default settings on the Samsung's did indeed overhype the saturation on their screens. Photographers would typically change this to a different, more realistic setting. This is ...
  • Replied in Untrue...
    This is untrue. It completely depends on how the screens area calibrated. The best AMOLEDs, properly profiled, are the best screens on the planet. There are countless articles documenting this ...
  • I haven't seen that problem, but then again I don't keep phones for very long.
  • Replied in Chill for now...
    Smartphones are in a bit of a renaissance right now, so I would take a "wait and see" approach right now. There's a lot of awesome developments, and that doesn't look like it's going to slow down. ...
  • Any of the latest flagship phones with AMOLEDs are going to be your best bet. You do need to pay attention to the color profiling however, since some can use weird, super-saturated profiles. The ...
  • I think I've made it pretty clear in countless threads that generally I prefer the iPhone 7 Plus' processing - it simply "look better" more often compared to the Pixel. But you can't argue with ...
  • Getting "settings" identical between a bunch of different smartphones is tough since you typically have to use third party apps, which don't all give the best quality the camera is capable of ...
  • I definitely think there's times at which the iPhone 7 Plus' processing is superior to the Huawei's, for sure. Part of this is due to the fact that the 7 Plus has a longer lens, which inherently ...
  • They both do, the Huawei's processing is pretty sophisticated. Not sure what examples in this thread you're looking at. The processing isn't perfect - there's plenty of situations in which it looks ...
  • Replied in $840 vs. $165?
    I use it for the anti-shock. Was seeing softness from shutter shock in my shots.
  • Replied in Hah!
    Hah! Fair enough, yeah I didn't see the date. Just as well. Not any closer to be able to afford the bodies to begin with, although it's nice to see they're finally starting to drop. I may well ...
  • Replied in $840 vs. $165?
    On some weekends I'll shoot for about 16 hours over the course of two days - thousands and thousands of shots between two bodies, shooting in anti-shock mode which I've found to be more battery ...
