Fujica: I've just recently jumped ship from Apple to a Microsoft Surface Pro. Windows 10 is less annoying as I though it was. I think Apple should have made this device. It is working great for me and all I actually had been waiting for from Apple.

If Apple would have made such amazing device (not the iPad Pro because of running iOS. So no thank you), then I would have bought that instead. Now they have lost a customer that was an Apple fanatic for over 15 years.

Imho It was a stupid descision of Apple to give the iPad Pro iOS instead of MacOS

Interesting. The sad fact is that most of the innovation in platforms is coming from the PC side of the world. It's like Apple doesn't even want to innovate or extend themselves. There's several Mac-mini type platforms; etc.

Sadly, the market doesn't want a true operating system on a tablet or smart phone. Waiting for the day when physical keyboards and mice are outlined. The apps the thing by which we'll ...

Thanks. Great tip.

Should be on DPReview CONNECT web site?

Look like a good value. Wonder what carriers.

I like the phone, but bezel-less is a solution in search of a problem. Invest the development money in better processors, more RAM, better internal storage options, better BlueTooth. I think of a lot of things more useful than a fragile, handleless smart phone.

Really. How many "real" OVF DLSRs are left? How hard would it be to add Pentax entry-level DSLR and you'd have them all, seeing as SONY DSLR is a special variant and not entry level-just the reverse.

This is one case, if I were the OEM, I would be upset.

left eye: If anyone is still getting frustrated by LR''s Import/Catalog - so called 'workflow' - which is in fact a rigid system from hell that clashes with how professionals shuffle around and rename folders for delivery to clients, and also how any photographer organically and intelligently reorganises their work, try Bridge > ACR > PS.

Bridge > ACR > PS works intuitively and with sidecar adjustment files is solid as a rock across external hard-drives, renamed folder and backups etc.

LR is overhyped by people who like it's name 'LightRoom' and believe they need to be shoe-horned into some efficient [read, in-efficient] workflow - which is actually a horrible trap.

LR is a bad dream, Bridge is a good dream. I recommend Bridge > ACR to anyone who is in the Adobe boat. I'm surprised how Bridge > ACR is so little talked about.

Of course this is just my opinion, but thought I'd share it.

Thanks. Great to know about. Abobe Creative Cloud Bridge is free.

Doesn't this belong on DPReview CONNECT web site?

In the vein of "more than a smart phone," this device is extremely interesting for me:

upptick: Anyone interested in photography should be over-the-moon excited about all the research going into smartphone cameras. I was a bit of snob about these cameras for a long while but finally realized that since I was carrying the thing with me all the time anyhow I should put a little effort into figuring out how best to use it. Combined with Snapseed, I'm pretty impressed with iPhone photography. It's not a replacement (yet) for a dedicated camera, but given the amount of research dollars being thrown at these little gems, you're crazy if you're not taking advantage of the situation.

I hope DPReview adds a Smart Phone as Camera forum. The traditional OEMs had the opportunity to integrate imagery with connectivity. Samsung and Panasonic made some effort, but gave up too soon.

Photato: These are features that could be easily implemented in dedicated cameras too.
But....traditional camera manufacturers have completely missed the boat on this because they are thinking in Phone rather than Mobile Computing Platform.
Yes Canon and Nikon, you don't have to get into the phone business to take advantage of all these wonders of the modern world.

Exactly. The modern DSLR is powerful, but a monstrosity of dials, levels, buttons, you name it.

Please explain how you can use just Bridge and ACR?
Thanks

tbcass: I tried Lightroom twice and hated it. It simplified things too much and tried to make too many decisions for me. While it's tools worked well I found myself spending too much time trying to work around it's default way of doing things, especially Importing and cataloging.

What is Bridge-ACR? Thanks.

Steve in GA: Although it is painful to say, I don't see how any camera company could be an attractive investment today.

The camera industry is in a state of flux, and no one can reliably say what the industry will look like in ten or even five years. And, a discussion that implies that the owners of Leica have a 100 year vision for the company is downright laughable.

Ironic as there is so many uses for cameras today: surveillance, drones, mapping, remote inspection, medical, industrial, etc.

And on the consumer front people are taking billions of photos and videos daily and sharing them almost instantly.

The traditional OEMs just didn't figure out how to translate their expertise, knowledge and experience to these areas. Panasonic or Sony "should" have the best smartphone as photography tool.

Perhaps the other store is more telling. How a couple's social media campaign could destroy a business? All the people who only believed one side of the story and would let that justify further actions? ????? How did the photographer respond? Why are we so hungry in society for self-expression?

Michiel953: Well, the Kaufmanns could always buy that 45% stake themselves. At the premium Blackstone would routinely require.

Thanks for the correction.
