sportyaccordy: If I can see the wrecked hairs on my phone, this is not good enough for social media.

I dont think "wrecked" hairs would make any difference on your tinder but who knows.

Both cameras have a square charge-coupled device (CCD) detector 1,024 pixels by 1,024 pixels. One has FOV of 45 and other 120 aka fisheye

Mssimo: Im calling this a bit misleading or maybe even cheating. I know the iphone (or almost any camera phone or camera) would not expose only for the sky in automatic setting. Out of the box, the iphone will take a much better picture than the example above. Fair or not very fair questions I would ask: Was any object like a ND filter used, default camera app, spot metering (on the sky by using touch?), default picture profile...and so on. To me the google picture looks good but the iphone looks a little too terrible to be real.

For the Pixel's image BrightnessValue is -2.2. I guess this value is defined as: APEX average scene luminance. Seems like google photographer used a film or ND filter. I dont blame them because it looked very impressive during the presentation and on its own must have sold thousands of units.

found this in the exif data. BrightnessValue -4.119645891 can anyone confirm if this image was underexposed by 4.11 stops?

Question: If a bear crapped in the woods and the one person that had the picture made it disappear. Did the bear crap in the woods? Question goes beyond this one article.

I see free and I also see $9 a month. For $9 a month you can get photoshop and lightroom.

Mssimo: In summary, DSLR is dead. The people that still prefer DSLRs will now start sounding like the hippies that shoot film.
Ill get that train rolling: Shooting Film err DSLRs is More Challenging and Rewarding,
DSLRs makes you appreciate the "Origins" of photography, weddings lost that special character of non stop shutter clicks, simulated mirror blackout on current high tech cameras is just not the same as classic DSLRs, the heft of DSLRs give you more appreciation for the results, 43% of people still think huge cameras look more professional, remembering the mirror and why it was so important back in 2008, how sending in my DSLR to get the mirror box replaced was expensive but rewarding - makes you appreciate the limited lifetime of the camera. Time to be nostalgic, in memory of the DSLR.

Correct, I have owned the D700, D800, D810, Canon 5D MK ii and iii and I will not list all other cameras. I don't update the silly dpreview gear list anymore.

All R&D is going to go to modern cameras. I still think the D850 is a better camera but it will never see huge changes/features in the future.

Franz Weber: This is very clever!
This thinking outside the box should serve as a role model for the rest of us.

I use an App called Dydra to take 32MP pictures with my phone. Works the same way.

Mssimo: Aside from the lens mount, how is this different than a gopro? Videos do look nice but not sure how much better it would be than any other compact.

@Khunpapa your statement tells me you may know something but maybe you like to keep it secret from us. Thanks for the contribution to my question.

You cant really expect it to perform like a $3500 camera right?

Its hard to tell how much damage the drone suffered but to be safe I just keep a distance from commercial jets.

Thematic: "All the detail is still there but the viewer perceives those areas as softer and less sharp."

Apple marketing BS at its finest.

"If your phone is running slow, it is not because of throttling. All the speed is still there, you are just perceiving it wrong."

It's always the customers' fault.

Seems like article went over the top of some "Photographers" heads.
