Interesting... I only picked the Canon once...

This has got to be the most idiotic thing I have ever heard. Even with protective lenses, looking at an eclipse can blind you. What morons.

jkokich: How about a $500 Sony? I'll bet you could shoot a damn good movie with that.

Toss in another $300 and let's have another test!

M Chambers: "I'm shocked. Shocked to find gambling here." Professionals used professional equipment and professional lighting to create the iPhone ads.

While this doesn't come as a surprise to anyone here it probably does amaze the general public.

Always has been. Remember pet rocks?

The quality of iPhone videos, even without the ridiculous gear attached to them, is fantastic. It's state of the art of a few years ago for high level gear, so if that state was perfectly acceptable, so is this. You really could shoot commercials, or features, on your iPhone if you actually relied on your abilities as a videographer, and not on the gear.

I think we are getting very close to the same point stereo systems got years ago. Differences could only be measured with instruments, not the human ear.

jkokich: If you went to someone who knew nothing of the history of photography, and showed them two designs, one for a mirror system, with its complexity, and the other mirrorless, there would be no contest. Why have something so much more complicated? Now, I appreciate mechanical things, but the limitations of the mirror system place it firmly in the "yes, amazing, but things evolve" category.

I've gotten both from mirrorless.

Kaso: Consumer market is tough. A consumer looks for bargains and buys only one item in the space of 15 months or so. There are people who upgrade their camera bodies twice, yet still reuse their initial SD cards!

Of all the posts on this thread, this is the truth. Simple and direct. Bravo, Kaso.

jkokich: Gold? For these unimpressive shots? With all those cons?

Tan68, no, not the composition. Aza, skin tones are all well and good, but for a MF camera, the IQ should be far and away superior to FF, or what's the point? Or, were you being sly, and subtly agreeing with me?

jkokich: Very well written piece! A lot of the science is beyond me; I look at the photos, and the Fuji's just aren't as impressive as they should be.

Curses! Foiled again!

In reply to:

hioe04: I know Leica is all about the feel and experience of shooting but I would still like to see a blinded study showing Leica photographs versus "X" camera photographs of the same image and seeing which a sample ppl would prefer on an aesthetic basis.

If it doesn't do anything better, there's no reason to buy it.

If you don't like the shots, don't buy the phone. I think the shots look great.
