mckracken88: 1) hahha. Everyone who buys APPLE is paying idiot tax.
2) cell phone 12mp good enough? My D800 is good enough. DLSR 36mp mind you.

3) Ive never owned a cell phone and proud of it. Only lamers use one.

Yeah, exactly not for internet. (i dont need it mobile, im not an info junkie)
It's audio is crap. (and cheapens the listening experience) It's tiny screen is crap, for EVERYTHING video. (especially movies) Banking i do from my desktop.

I dont need navigation, I use maps or memorize.
Gaming is total, utter crap. (as PC enthusiast i had to put the two extra adj.)
Camera is crap. (and i dont need to do pics in my local grocery either)
Email i check when i'm at home. Again, im not an addict. So it happens I can make phone calls too, without the worry of the possibly harmful radiation.

But of course, do whatever you guys like. If society tells you cant live with em you probably can't....

Mobile lamer. Go tweet to Kim Kardashian or something. Or Facebook how often you used the toilet today.

kgreggain: Why the F is dpreview reviewing phones? The phone has a camera but is not a camera, it's a phone.

those 41 megapixel is kinda a marketing gag.
(even in iso 100 it looks bad)

InTheMist: Amateurs criticizing NG photographers. Heh, that's a hoot. Armchair quarterbacks.

I bought the issue as soon as I saw it at the news stands. Sure to be a classic.

if amateur means having a sky that doesnt look like a shot taken 30m underwater, then ill gladly call myself an amateur.

gah, no more AFGHAN GIRL. She's startled enough..from that camera shoved in her face ;)

also: most National Geographic pictures look kinda funny-surreal, what with their overuse of contrast and candy colors.

In reply to:

HappyVan: the title of the article is provocative.

Not sure what Barney is trying to do. But, I'm sure that he is not saying that panorama can only be done by a iphone. Or that panorama is best done on a handheld device. Or that the iphone represents a magical user experience.

On-camera panaroma has been around a while. That's the nature of digital devices.

Here's the important thing!

Anything photographic that a small device can do. A dedicated camera can do better.

are you working for apple?
how many replies do you have now in this thread?

In reply to:

calking: Some of you are crazy. It's still possible to use an older DSLR and shoot panoramas. It's called a TRIPOD and STITCHING SOFTWARE.

I'm referring to the whiners below that are bemoaning the fact that their camera doesn't offer this. A panorama isn't magic and you don't need this built into a camera to be able to do I, and do it as well or better than in-camera stuff.

I shoot panos with my Sony rx100 and fuji xe1, but also with a nikon d80 on a tripod if that's what I have with me.

there are no stitching errors with modern software. (of course overhead should be at 30 percent for that)

for that price you would expect way better iso and sharpness.

dont really understand that review. but i dont have to - i just look at the raw test scene.

mckracken88: id rather take no shots than use a phone.

exposure differences are easily corrected in stitching software. And if you take 50percent overhead - youll never have problems with stitching either.

i fail to see whats so great about this phone, except that its low res and the iso stinks. BOTH critical criteria for a panorama.

those 38 mb from the nokia look really bad compared to the D800. Even at iso100.

I would never use a phone camera.
