fusoexplorer: Now everyone is going to look like a chimpanzee with a phone.

but that's not what you said. you're asking someone else to find a sense of humour, implying that someone else doesn't have it. it's not about whether people find you funny or not

@fusoexplorer read the room. differentiate between having a sense of humour and knowing when it should be applied

cchen2: Bravo- an interesting and well written deep dive. Thank you Rishi, what a pleasure it was to read this. Wish that Google added an UWA camera and a larger battery. I totally would have upgraded my OG Pixel XL if they had.

"Wish that Google added an UWA" - it's called a front facing camera

Yohan Pamudji: I can't understand how serious photographers can stomach the artificial portrait OOF feature with its obvious editing artifacts around the edges of the subject. It looks like a bad Photoshop job. We're a long way from having an automated procedure that can credibly fake the OOF effect--there's still no substitute for the real thing.

"I can't understand how serious photographers can stomach" - so you identify as a serious photographer?

Shoogle: I don't care how good phone cameras get, compared to holding a big fat DSLR it's like holding a wet bar of soap. Although I always have a phone in my pocket, I never use the camera. I always have a real camera with me.

"it's like holding a wet bar of soap" - there are soap holders called phone cases. no one really cares if another person uses just one form of a device exclusively.

a lot of people are happy with different tools in different situations - people are free to decide to bring a typewriter, a pencil, or both.

Lan: For those of you pining for the Fjords... Sorry, err, I mean successor to the Nokia 808, it already exists, and it's called the Huawei P20 Pro. Three sensors, one of which is 40MP. It shoots DNG RAW. You get most of the advantages of the 808, but on a fast modern Android based handset. Highly recommended.

"it does not have headphone jack" - P20 Pro is waterproof, it's a trade-off to give photographers a more versatile camera over legacy audio accessories

"sensor on the 808 was bigger" - size doesn't matter when you can't capture details in shadow and highlights since dynamic range on the 808 is worse

In reply to:

DejayRezme: Can the Z7 or Z6 shoot 4k at 30 fps? Or only 24fps? Are there differences in the capabilities?

For youtube I'd think people would prefer 30fps except for 24 being a "habit".

"24 FPS needs to die." - then don't watch cinema. for everyone else, it's a subjective artistic decision https://youtu.be/EM16aiSSpFk

Steve Balcombe: Very good, but it would have been even better without the distracting effects.

so 4 slide-in-and-outs is constant enough to make it hard to watch?

Neuropsychology: I really haven't seen the need to upgrade my OnePlus 3; the pictures are really great. Believe me, if there were a significantly better camera out there I'd get it as I'm looking for excuses to buy new gear hehe.

there are already significantly better cameras out there if you're willing to compromise on other things like cost, size, weight, performance and useability features.

Internet Enzyme: This is the type of stuff i love to see on dpreview. Not some cryto-art block chain gobbeldy gook. Fantastic article.

so by bringing up an unrelated article that one didn't care about, does that make more photography and camera related news occur more frequently for dpreview to report?

the crypto-art article was equally interesting, for people who are into that and this. why discriminate?

In reply to:

BYL: A lot of the criticism posted here is, I think, misplaced. Quality is relative, and the key point with the Pixel 2 (and its peers) is that it represents a pretty big jump relative to what we previously thought was possible with phones.

I used to carry around an RX100 to take candids of my kids, but even that was too cumbersome and slow. Plus, I'd always need to do post-processing, then upload the processed photos to Flickr. And yes, the final product was obviously better than what I'm getting with my Pixel 2, but was the modest increase in quality worth the time involved, let alone the number of shots missed because I didn't carry my RX100 with me at literally all times or was too slow to get it out of my jeans and wait for the lens to extend? Definitely no. We are always trading off quality for convenience, but the phones like the Pixel 2 have seriously closed that gap.

"The result was 808 and 909. Panasonic also took into account this experience and created a smartphone with a matrix of 1 "

and where's the demand for these, what's the market penetration of nokia and panasonic? who again are the amateurs that are taking the lion's share?

In reply to:

saeba77: well that's not really true...i've a panasonic CM1 and it's on another planet

what's your criteria for phone performance? if you're interested in just the audio quality of what your ear hears and how you're heard on the other end, there are no complaints whatsoever.

mr_landscape: Agreed with micsmics. Article is lying, this is not the best camera-phone.
6 yo Nokia PureView808 is STILL a best camera for daylight.

Check tests 2 and 3 to see messy over-sharpened and over-saturated output of GP.

See? That's the difference between real optics and cheap picture computing.

Periodically using N808 for stock photography.

"by deliberately setting -1 or -2 EV" - or, you're just exposing for the sky. it will not be a stellar image due to the poor dynamic range on the ground or people. there's no free lunch. you can brighten the dark areas but the low contrast ratio will still be undesirable, instead the subject will still look better when properly exposing for that and blowing out the sky.

808 has terrible dynamic range in daylight, sharpness and resolution are no help with washed out skies
