NaBalam: F12.7 ... not exactly bright

I believe the focal length is 0.57 equivalent (60 x 0.57 = 34) approx so the same calculation applied to the aperture would give f/7.2

If in fact that is how one would calculate it?

Henrik Herranen: Is iPhone really the world's most popular series of digital cameras? Yes, iPhone is popular in the United States, but that is still a small though not insignificant market. How about Samsung mobile phones that greatly outsell iPhones worldwide (during the last year at a ratio of 3:2, and in Q2/2016 by a ratio of 2:1)? Don't Samsung users take pictures?

I don't know how DPR calculate 'most popular camera' or whatever it was (sorry, only skim read the article) but I agree with you - there are according to sales figures more Samsung phones out in the wild than Apple phones.

Taking the crown of worlds "most popular camera" though isn't a total sales figure across all the devices - it's just the single most popular one. The new iPhone 7/Plus for example will likely sell more than the current Samsung comparable device S7/Edge and that will keep it on top of the Flickr charts!

You have to take into account the number of models Samsung makes/sells. Samsung sell more handsets overall but in 2015 on Flickr for example the iPhone 6 was the most widely used camera with the Galaxy S4 lagging much further behind. It's a statistic which falls in Apple's favour due to their more limited number of models.

[Personally my next phone is going to be the Lg G5 or P9 "Leica" ;) ]

The Squire: £825?
That's only £26 more than WEX is taking pre-orders on the LX100!
The cheapest way to buy a red dot yet!?!?

I raised this over on Photographyblog. I can't believe the Leica variant is only £26 more and includes LR. Can't be right can it? I wonder if WEX have overestimated the Panny's pre-order price? If not then I don't see any point buying the Panny at those prices.

In this photo they do look very similar, not just the white box (because what compact camera ISN'T that shape?) but the holed ring around the lens.

On article Google pulls plug on desktop version of Snapseed (63 comments in total)

Mister J: I wondered what effect Google's takeover would have, and now I know.

Snapseed Desktop is a workflow item for me, so the news is a shame, but so long as it works, it works...

Sometimes Snapseed does enough I need and does it quickly without needing to open up LR, PS and the like. I'm genuinely surprised they're killing the desktop version. But as you said as lon gas it works....

In reply to:

nathansmith: From DP Review: In a blog post, the company has announced, as a part of its 'spring cleaning' it has decided to shut down Snapseed and Google Reader, among other products.

The blog entry says they are shutting down the DESKTOP version of Snapseed, but not the mobile. The above line gives the impression that Google is killing Snapseed completely. Also, I use Nik software, and killing the desktop version of Snapseed could be good for Nik, as Google wants us to use Nik software. (Although personally I don't want every wannabe pro using Nik).

Why would you not want people to use Nik software?

In reply to:

veato: I'm loving the hilarious "it will fail because it doesn't have a 1" sensor" comments. So any compact that doesn't feature a larger sensor is now destined to fail (regardless of other features), right?

Presumably all photos taken on the X20 will be crap because, you know, sensor.

Haha, yep.

And m4/3 because of APS-C and APS-C because of full frame and full frame because of medium format.

So let's all bin whatever rubbish camera we currently have and buy MF. It's clearly the best because, you know, sensor.

veato: The iPhone (although a phone) is the most popular camera in the world. That alone would explain why a photography website might want to have a look!

If you disagree, don't read the review. Easy.

""Also, flickr count of pictures taken with the iphone doesn't make it the most popular""

No the fact that the device has sold in its millions probably makes it technically the most popular camera

The quality of the camera on a smartphone is a big draw nowadays for the general public. Apple know this hence why its features appear on detail on the site above the new connector, maps, siri, iOS6, iCloud and a host of other features.

This is certainly not an afterthought.
