I2K4's recent activity

  • Bokeh will pass. Don't forget that when these cameras came out the fetish was "tack sharp" especially for animal fur and feathers with a lot of PP overkill - I used to call them "crispy critters"....

  • With the caveat that I enhance the "stock" cameras with CHDK (that makes more difference the older the Canon model), I still actively use and haven't replaced an S5IS (some telephoto and good ...
  • My Sunpak tripod flips vertical so no need for the camera bracket to do it - a lot of apps have levels indicators that work off the camera's sensors. I'm happy enough with an inexpensive eBay ...
  • Replied in S5IS
    Good story.  I've seen users here post graphs of the aperture curves on competing models, it's a nice contribution. Not a "gear" guy or a birder, I'm pretty happy with the focal length of the SX10 ...
  • I've always had a completely non-commercial no-credit card ID relation with Google via a nonsense Gmail address, and though I suppose it could "dig" me up with some effort, all it aggregates is ...
  • Interesting experiences with the Pan FZ200, which I've always had a yen for - hoped Canon would do the same thing with stable aperture, but with better JPEG processing and user interface. I hadn't ...
  • I'd also be leery of eBay for most purposes, but if you're handy enough to have pulled the lens and can get it back together, it might make sense to pick up a cheap used duplicate and even if it's ...
  • I've still got an S5IS in good shape, with a lens adapter for filters and the CHDK hack permitting DNG and other extra capabilities. The adapter for that model attached straight to the body as a ...
  • Absent further interest, but in case some downmarket and lazy SOOC shooters might care, I'll just report that after experimental series on my ZTE phone with Open Camera (former default), Camera ...
  • For the next year or so I plan to stay with a ZTE Android L phone that does not support DNG or the rest of the Camera2 API. Many have no doubt moved on to DNG, this might interest those with older ...
  • Interesting.  Using Cortana gives MS a data mining hook into the Android device while keeping it at arm's length from Windows.   Since W8.x (badly executed) touchscreen it's been obvious MS wants ...
  • I'd suggest you try your old smartphone and some of the more sophisticated "pro style" phone apps to see if you can get passable results - you'll also obviously want a tripod, bracket to mount the ...
  • Thanks, I know about it.  Unlike actively developed Camera FV-5, version development for Cinema seems to be stalled at Dec 2015, at least in Play Store for my phone (?)  But I think you're right ...
  • Concur about QuickPic gallery. Camera users tend to divide between those looking for a "pro" style camera control app versus those looking for fun filters and basic editing built into the app. ...
  • My daughter shoots stills and video professionally with a Canon 6D and L lenses, and has an Instagram account with some hundreds of followers built up with Apple and Samsung phones (I only shoot ...
  • Depends on your personal use / situation, but for most users 8gb will be insufficient internal storage, even with the recent (since Android M) ability to install some apps directly onto the ...
  • UPDATED: As I understand you'd like to either designate a range of files or use a finger over a range out of a larger group - I checked X-plore and didn't find either, but emailed the developer, ...
  • When ES got creepy, I switched to X-plore (Lonely Cat), which is dual pane (I like that, some don't) and very easy to use: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.lonelycatgames.Xplore Wo ...
  • Replied in ColorOS help
    May be others, but I use a free app called "My Device" (3k Developers) that generates really detailed system information.   No idea about the ColorOS fork.
  • You'll find a lot of alternatives and your own needs and priorities are the main thing. In your boots on a long scenic trip, trading off (for example) an $800 flagship phone versus a $250 camera ...
