pkcpga: Just recommended taking the picture with your hand side facing out instead of palm side.

That's an obscene guesture in some parts of the world :)

All it needs is a "speed booster adapter" from Canon.

In reply to:

zonoskar: 18000 fps at 64x64 pixels. Very usefull. NOT And only 200 fps at 1080p, you'd almost better get a Gopro Hero 4 (but that's only 120 fps at 1080p).

Hence the 'almost'.

I absolutely hate color shading. Can Lightroom help here?

Ken Johnes: 500 $ for a silly firmware upgrade? and the target audiance for this camera have been waiting eagerly for this AF upgrade .
wow, greed and trying to milk it´s customers with incremental upgrade are gonna hurt the big dogs here, both of em, look at what nikon is trying to do.

i think nikon and canon are competing with each other on how to sell less for more, while other companies are making innovative products at a fair price , no wonder these greedy top dogs have to make up for their loss with such silly act..

They said the sensor is not replaced, but they didn't mention any other hardware being replaced. So maybe they need to swap some FGA's or something?

In reply to:

ZAnton: I assume there are too many variables to calculate good result.
For example LoCAs are distant dependent, so unless we know the distance to ALL objects on the photo, we can't calculate back the initial image.
Similar with non-flat focus-plane (field curvature). If the object is blurred by that, one must know the distance to the object for the reverse calculation of the "ideal" image.

Distance information is known for the focus point, so maybe they can use that. For the OOF parts of the picture< I wouldn't mind a non-corrected image, or only CA corrcted.

On article Microsoft to acquire Nokia's smartphone business (68 comments in total)
In reply to:

massimogori: Nokia has an history as a camaleon company: they used to make boots, toilet paper, TV sets, mobile phones.

Now they are joining the world leader in a very profitable market: software bugs.

Windows Phone 8 is already made by Microsoft, so why would you think they'll introduce bugs now they've acquired Nokia?

keeponkeepingon: I've been waiting for this review.

I love my 808 but will dump it in a heart beat if there is something significantly better.

Unfortunately this review has no IQ comparisons against the 808.

(that I could find, if I'm wrong tell me the page number and I will cower in shame).

I thought y'all reviewed the 808 as one of your first reviews? How can I get a comparison of the 1020 and 808 test shots? Your selectoramoter does not include the 808.

Also you state the sensor of the 1020 is "slightly smaller"than the 808s. That's sort of an exageration. I've seen anything from 30 to 50% smaller. What's the exact size difference?


The 808 uses a 1/1.2" (10.67×8 mm) sensor, while the 1020 uses a 1/1.5" (8.8×6.6 mm) sensor. So the sensor area is roughly 32% smaller (or the 808's sensor is 47% bigger)

In reply to:

Impulses: If you're gonna be re-shooting scenes with other phones you might as well toss in something like the Canon S110 into the testing IMO... It's pretty affordable ($30 less than the cost of this phone plus the grip...) and I bet a lot of people (at least within your audience) would only spend $300+ on a phone (primarily with it's camera in mind) if it can actually replacesomething like the S110 and not just outdo other more popular phones (nothing against WP8, can't deny the facts tho).

And make sure the 920 is in focus @low light shots this time.

On article Do HTC One ultrapixels deliver? Our full camera review (40 comments in total)

Again a phone that exhibits this annoying color shading. Why does this only occur in phones and not in any of the compact camera's? How difficult is it to design a phone without this 'featue'? This is the main reason why I almost never get usable pictures out of my Lumia 920 (and other phones).

In reply to:

Flee808: I have always enjoyed reading your interesting reviews. Your review helped me decide to buy the 808. Just a request- when you compare image quality between 2 phones, is it possible to do it by ISO, say A versus B at ISO 400? This will give a better picture of the phone's performance at a specific ISO. How does the HTC One compare with the Samsung Galaxy S2 at ISO 400? Thank you.

Of course you can compare ISO for ISO with an iPhone. Just take the picture with an iPhone and replicate the chosen ISO using manual selection on the other device. Just because the iPhone doesn't give you control doesn't mean you can't compare.

On article 5 apps for the Windows Phone 8 photographer (7 comments in total)

How about ProShot and CameraPro? Both of which offer a vastly improved interface for taking pictures in the first place. I use these extensively and they put the controls at your finger tips. From manual focus, to manual exposure comensation to live histogram. The only thing missing is a custom autofocus algorithm and auto exposure settings (center weighted, average, spot) that lock exposure to the autofocus point. But I think this is a WP8 limitation rather then the apps fault.
