  • LG has been doing the dual camera w/ultrawide lens since the LG G5 some years ago.  A developer even got Google camera  to work on the WIDE camera to do multiple exposure with RAW.   It's cool and ...
  • Consider an m4/3 speedbooster
  • Use Sony's best sensors and  great optics, make it look really retro like  old Instamatic stuff and well-built with top specs...minimal cost.
  • Sad.  Wasn't expecting much but was 'hoping' to be entertained   by all sorts of comparison videos between it and say other "RED"  8K camera :).  This phone pretty obscure. To defcomk,  how are 8k ...
