Pritzl: Just a quick question to DPR staff regarding this quote:

"In continuous autofocus, lenses focus at shooting aperture - so shooting moving objects while stopped down robs the AF system of light - could result in missed shots"

I've seen this with the X-T2 as well and, coming from DSLRs, it caught me by surprise. Is there a technical reason for this on mirrorless cameras? e.g. is it in order to maintain the WYSIWYG view?

Slrs could focus not wide open too, but don't for focusing speed and accuracy! Seems like sony wants to update the rules without understanding the reason for the rules!

Design fail!

So this is really touch up software not content aware. The objects appeared in the pictures do the software knew what was there. If they took a picture that had someone wearing dark sunglasses or a mask, their program would not work st all!

Erk1024: The one paragraph description of the Canon 6Dm2 didn't mention the most bizarre thing about it, that all the focus points are densely packed in the center. This is a big difference between DSLR's and the new Sony's, and it's extreme in the case of the 6D2 because they used an aps-c focus unit on a FF camera.

You need a better perspective on SLR autofocus point layouts since autofocus was invented

With The commercial FAA sUAV license, you cannot fly it over people. Only the UAV team can be under it. All others must be inside buildings or in stationary vehicles

Mariano Pacifico: Photo Printer? Seriously? Who prints photos when they can email or text it ... Canon is slow to change ... Photo printer ! I have not printed pictures for years! Can't remember even if I did. HAVE YOU?

My photoalbum is in my phone !

Printing is still popular in Japan where many don't own a computer but have a digital camera

semorg: Is that banding in the last image?

There is either a very strange light on her skin or there is some major banding on the image:

Bands are circular, you (and most others) really mean pattern noise

solarider: These are 'phones' or portable telephones. Call quality doesn't make it into the data points.

Mine is a phone, not sure what world you're in.

ozturert: When phones were reasonably priced, I also used to say "phone is always with me so I can buy a good phone with a good camera".
Now the high-end phones are so ridiculously expensive that you can buy a good phone and an excellent pocket size camera for the same price.
1000+ USD is way too much to pay for a good photo.

So a 5 year old phone is slow and small and has a poor battery and probably not getting security updates

You cared enough to reply with a comment that adds nothing to the discussion 🤔🙄

photoaddict: I only use iPhones because they have way much better operating system and the other features are as competitive as others. I am same with MacOS. I only buy Macs because they run MacOS which is far better than any other operating systems overall and they can run non-Mac operating systems as well.

The UX matters more than many people realize.

That's because the iPhone 5 is very old. Much advances to hardware and iOS. I wasn't impressed with iPhone 4 but was with the 6 and am sold on them now.

maxz: I like my phone as a phone because it has a good quality camera. So yes, I WILL buy a phone simply because it has a better camera.

Glad you can see the marginal differences. On a big desktop computer monitor I yet at 150%, eh?

chrisno: call it smart device. its not just a phone

Not gonna happen. We're too far in. Just like it's called a cell phone when "cellular " isn't part of how it receives calls anymore

AbrasiveReducer: You mean, if a phone is a lousy phone but it gets the highest DxO score, I shouldn't buy it?

digiart: I will buy the phone I want not the phone someone wants me to buy! Sorry, but this article has very suspicious timing! Now that the iPhone has been clearly beaten in the camera department (by Huawei), all of a sudden somehow a camera review site advises us not to buy "the phone with the best camera"? ! Yeah, right...

Dude, unless you plan on using the phone solely for taking photos to immediately upload to an app for sharing, get the phone you like as an overall device better. Why? You'll be using it far more as "not a camera". Just like you don't buy the laptop because it has the best webcam if you use webcam a small percentage of the time.

DPR always has a list of cons equal to the pro list. It's a joke that not having USB charging is listed as a Con

vscd: @FUJI
That's not Kayzen! Acros Neopan is an awesome film... please keep it. Look at Kodak, coming back after a few years takes more money then to keep a few meters coming out every month. I think it's very shorteyed, look at your Success on Instax. Nobody though something like Polaroid would be interesting anymore. Now it's a hype.

They are fujifilm not fuji
