Samsung's smashing marketing copy for the S9:
THE CAMERA REINVENTED!

When a phone ACTUALLY gets a larger sensor and ACTUALLY takes better photos, that will be the day it's news for me. The never-ending marketing garbage slogans allied to "revolutionary improvements" claims, fake AI, fake HDR, fake bokeh, fake studio lighting and fake whatever else using microscopic 12mp sensors is getting really really sickening. We are pathetically stuck in this s..t for years and go nowhere, as the prices of phones go up and surpass on an ADDICTIVE CYCLE what you'd pay ONCE for an actual and proper digital camera + lens.. mind-blowing!

..like having an old car we upgrade the sparkplugs, gas additive, improved air filter and better tires every year, and in our imagination it will run better and faster every time.

THE CAMERA REINVENTED, huh? The BS that tech manufacturers manage to convince the whole world of is truly astonishing.. hats off!

Hats off to Apple for inventing the whole "reiventing" BS!

It does bring the bulkiness of the old dslr. Basically, defies the reason I left Nikon...

Just hope that the X-Pro stays as is (or even shrinks a little...)

This begs the question - what is the etiquette? Sneak around someone praying and snap a photo without the person, without his/her approval? Once there is some awareness/approval, the posture is inadvertently staged. What about 99.99% of Holywood type of work? This type of criticism makes no sense.

arhmatic: That's so nice! But Windows should introduce a few more wallpapers. It comes with 5, totally uninspirational ones. What's so hard to spend a few thousand and license a few?
No joke! I've been looking at my solid black screen for just too long.

@milkod2001 - NO, I am not kidding! Microsoft, take a look at macOS as a reference.
@Tan68 - I've learned this 20 years ago.

Kwick1: The lack of an exposure compensation dial is a deal-breaker for me. And a bigger grip, extra weight, but no larger battery? Why? Missed opportunity, in my opinion.

Maybe the same battery is better. Some of us own many, from past cameras.

ZeBebito: Finally the camera I was waiting for. Good bye Sony!

You don't change systems just because of a new camera. The entire ecosystem matters, and the superiority is nothing new.

Fujifilm, you've nailed all the major tech specs.

Next, focus on the fine touches, that add character to any product. Focus on high-quality materials. no, not the "lunar" type of plastic, but stay away from rubber that ages and rubs within months. Focus on the little things that matter at the exterior. Maybe use a more stylish font. Leica has one. Maybe the menus need to actually be designed. Same wording, same functions, just a more inspiring interface. Maybe revisit the thick mark spacing on the ISO dial (more space around the L, A, H marks, that are the most common. Maybe the sense of depth at dials need a little revision. Please study a little bit more the entire "feel" of the camera. It does matter, trust me. Subconsciously.

Totally accidental... Don't believe it? Ask the marketing team at Canon, Apple, Fujifilm, Canon. These things happen when you least expect...

I am positive this applies other Apple devices. The battery getting weaker is just a nice plausible excuse. What about desktops?

My iMac, 2012, model is way way slower. I still run the same old Creative Suite 6 that I bought many years ago. Even starting up takes minutes now...

It's got all the ports you need, SD and USB, among other things, so you may call it "Pro".

MacBook "Pro", on the other hand...

arhmatic: If some of you are trying to make a case for more regulations on drones, please don't. The reality is, there is always some idiot that would endanger others, given a simple chopstick or whatever.

@darinb --- dude it's a metaphor! First, don't take it literally. Second, use your imagination...
