  • Agree.  I have a Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 OTC JPEGs are usually as good as what I can get from a RAW image from one of my Canon crop bodies (currently an M50.  Also have 6D/60D/T2i/M6).  The Pixel 2 ...

  • The doctor told me that this wasn't an option for me.  I would need bifocal prescription glasses (but the lenses are thinner than they were before the surgery.)  My wife also had cataract surgery ...
  • Both of my eyes have had cataract surgery, at separate times. When my first (right) eye was done, a yellow lens was used. When the left eye was done several years later a clear lens was used. I ...
  • I find interactive 3D plots are easier to visualize. Here are a few samples: 2D image of AdoramaPix glossy in sRGB (it almost fits) Interactive 3D version (Click and drag to rotate. Mouse wheel to ...
  • RE: internet sux. WiFi is AC now and has been for a number of years. Which is approximately as fast as an internal SATA spinning drive. Transferring one gig over AC is approx. one or two...

  • But the fact remains that Canon cameras can't auto-upload as transparently as smartphones can. (Or at least as transparently as my Pixel 2 can.) If my Canon cameras could transparently...

  • I would forego an SD slot in any of my cameras *if* it had enough internal storage to hold all the pictures I take until the next time I had access to WiFi. I agree that people that don't have...

  • RE: storage. I've grown to really appreciate how my Pixel 2 auto-magically uploads images to Google Photos. Even if you don't use Google Photos for anything else, it is Real Handy to be able to...

  • Replied in Google Pixel 2
    I'm not sure if this is needed, but I'm pretty sure that the above paper is referring to the Google Pixel 2. Some older references Burst photography for high dynamic range and low-light imaging on ...
  • I tested it on my Lenovo Yoga 920.  I tried several of the option changes that are described on the blog page.  I'm not sure if I can tell a speed difference when I cycle through CPU/MIX/GPU.  I ...

  • Replied in Skin in the game
    Because smartphone owners aren't contributing data. He tests raw files not raw files + lenses. What the above data shows is that there isn't too much difference between smartphone sensors (except ...
  • Replied in Looks good
    Looks good!   I'm loving computational photography (even though my Pixel 2 doesn't have a night mode like your P20 Pro does.) A building that doesn't move is the sweet spot for the P20 Pro might ...
  • Canon claims Superior low-light AF capability — AF sensitivity improved by approximately one stop, vs. EOS M5 camera ... EOS M50 is able to focus reliably in scenes as dim as EV -2. http://learn.us ...
  • Eh?  Link please.  I thought that the M50 had one EV better low light AF performance than the M6.  My M50 seemed to be better than my M6 with low light AF in my own informal tests. Wayne
  • (Above emphasis added.) There is a trend on DPReview to minimize the effects of AI in photography. The trend is most virulent whenever smartphone cameras are discussed. Read the 1026 (as of this ...
