  • Phones do, but form factors and interfaces don't necessarily suffer there. As long as the modules can span over several generations, I don't see the issue. The combined set of this phone and it's...

  • A couple of weekends ago, my company brought a charity hackathon to Toronto (I'm trying not to be commercial, but check out http://giftthecode.ca for details, simply one of the best weekends of my...

  • Actually, Ara goes back a lot further than that... The original project kicked off in 2012. My sense is that it's still ahead of its time to be modular to that level, but I like the experimentation...

  • The iPhone 7 sensor is the same as the 6s and that is a Sony sensor. You're simply wrong and you clearly can't read and/or comprehend what was written around the rest of it and then make up...

  • Nonsense. Sony makes amongst the best, if not the best, sensors on the market and the size of the sensor is clearly not the whole story when it comes to image quality. What a ridiculous assertion,...

  • "No brand is better than the other one but Pentax users won't get it."

    Even if that were true, and I don't know that it is, why would you care? Is this some kind of life mission for you? A Pentax...

  • @Jorge - your recent activity, your history is visible you realize, suggests that your protestations of camera agnosticism is rather suspect. We get it, you're not a fan of Pentax. Not sure why...

  • "it is all about advertising. some folks think that IBIS is the holy grail of photography."

    Hyperbole much? It isn't, but if you have IBIS, you can have both, as having IBIS doesn't prevent...

  • I recently picked up the Air A01... This would look funny as heck on that which, admittedly, makes it tempting.
