Wye Photography: I work with Windows every day and I much prefer, own and use a Mac for my personal work and photography. I can say without a doubt that, in my experience of being an IT professional, the biggest problem both operating systems have is the user.

This argument of Mac/Windows or whatever is boring, puerile and a waste of time. Find something better to do like make great photos. Please.

Whatever you choose to use is fine with me.

@kelstertx, Erm, I really like Linux, especially Linux Mint.

@A9RIII Mac makes no sense to you. I personally would not want to use Windows even if I was paid. You can keep your PC (PC = Pretty Crap).

Apart from what looks like some clarity halo, it is a fab image and certainly my fave.

Tizzio: So what and who cares… it still is just a smartphone cam.

@Estuff, I think you should read my comment again because you obviously misread it and/or misquoted. I was referring to the users I know, I never said or implied it was representative of smartphone users.

@dialstatic, Yes, you care because you are a photographer. The smartphone users I know (and that is quite a number*) are not photographers and don't care about pixel peeping, dynamic range, sharpness etc and all the other things some photographers obsess about.

*The smartphone users I know are not representative of all smartphone users. Happy now Estuff?

DPReview007: I don’t believe a thing tech reviewers say about Apple products anymore. People are either blind or plane iDiots. My iPhone X arrived a couple days ago. I’m considering returning it. That “revolutionary” “5.8” screen” “Apple’s largest screen that they managed to fit into a smaller body” is actually significantly smaller than my 6S’s 5’5” screen... It’s long (if you’re dumb enough to blindfoldedly count that notch as part of the screen like the tech press does), but it’s as narrow as the iPhone 6/7/8’s small screen.

So yeah, if you can’t trust the press regarding something that obvious, why would you trust them on things more subjective? They even say the iPhone X is $999. Apple told them so. Who would be so dumb as to buy a 64GB phone in 2017? That version is only made to advertise the $999 headline price. It’s about as practical as that “revolutionary” “5.8””screen.

Is it possible to trust tech sites when it comes to Apple?

If you believe a sales pitch then you deserve all you get

De Fotoman: Who cares, it's still an Apple. You know, that tax evading second world hard labour company wich thinks iTunes is an acceptable product, ignoring USB standards, etc.

I've "tested" the mode where it simulates shallow depth of field in a portrait. Great stuff for the social media narcissists, but butt ugly.

I suppose that is better than your CEO heir apparent done for what is it now...?

Many, if not all of the smartphone users I know (both Android and Apple) don't really care about the camera.

munro harrap: Score 101...... Room 101?

What can £1000 buy you, have a think. It can buy you TEN Nokia 1020s, all vastly superior for stills . Or a six month round trip to India. Take pics, meet your God, have more fun!! I mean, but seriously folks, what dumb shmucks would waste at least this much (much more on contract) for a machine that does not even have a wriststrap ?
Built with British knowhow from a graphics chip that very probably violates several patents?? Owned by Imagination??

Thats a Nikon D800 with a 24-85mm VR lens secondhand with a years guarantee!!
THat's a Sony A7R with a 24-70mm f4 secondhand, ditto.

And thats literally hundreds of cameras of all shapes and sizes from compact up to a new A7II that ALL have vastly better image quality.

Only the old Nokias are really competitors in this arena at all, and even they can only match basic stuff at base ISO, so is this fad to blow your money on tiny appurtanenses a mental illness?? Must be, surely!!

So, you don't like it?

deep7: I love the concept of "I was just passing by and saw a photo opportunity". Some of my best photos have come about like that but not from a boat sailing in an ice field!! Massive respect to the photographer just for being there but also for having the artistic eye, technical competence and control of the situation to get a shot like this.

I see some armchair experts below suggesting they could do better but no, they were not out sailing in Greenland. More likely they were safely tucked up in their beds asleep at the time. Getting award-winning images in their dreams...

@deep7, I can only get award-winning images in my dreams.
