Oliver Bedford: Funny times. If all I need to document a trip to Nepal or shoot a major Hollywood blockbuster is an iPhone, then why on earth should I pay for a photographer!? Every jerk can use an iPhone, right?

We've lost all appreciation for quality (as in quality journalism, quality photography, etc.), and "the industry" has a major part in this development.

If you think frozen pizza is a delicious meal, McDonalds (or KFC, or BurgerKing) is a 'good enough' restaurant. Your rating depends on the scale you have.

@jnd
In my house we used to subscribe two newspapers. Now its just one, but i cant call them "independent". That would be an overstatement...

John Bean (UK): Unnecessary ad hominem attacks on the photographer or for that matter on his work; *you* might not like the pictures, others (like me) will find them interesting.

That said I'm getting tired of all the "all you need is a NEW iPhone" ads posing as articles* these days on DPR.

* paid or unpaid they're still ads for Apple.

@Carey Rose...that's fair.
But is a user wrong in thinking how can a website that review cameras (phone or whichever) can praise an article that shows the best tool for taking portraits (in this case) can be an iphone with bad, unnatural and wrong OOF transitions?
Is the iphone really the best tool for "any" photographer who will take portraits on a trip?
Why disagreeing makes an user a hater, troll and everything else?

This portrait mode has so many problems that is impossible to understand how people simply ignore them

hypnotictortoise: The comments sections in dpreview are like a train wreck, you know it's going to be bad but you just can't look away. There's a significant cross section of the membership that are quite representative of everything that is wrong with social media and human nature.

But I have to wonder, why this platform in particular, as opposed to most other platforms/forums, which are quite pleasant places? I have a suspicion that a significant part of the causation is people who are fixated on gear, but who have no particular talent for photography as a craft or art.

The older I get the more I view the fact that people associate their identity with particular brands as sad.

Are you serious? the website is known by its forum section that is all about gear and just now you realize that? after almost 20 years?

Did the battery last to end of the footage?

tkbslc: Hard to believe this came from a phone!

yes, i was thinking about something larger than that, and (at least for me) i can see problems clearly from further away than 3 inches...( i really dont understand if you were making a joke or just being defensive)

MrBrightSide: We've apparently hit the camera phone plateau. They look like iPhone photos and seem to have about the same quality as shots from the 6 and 7.
Finally, we're ready for a compact camera renaissance.

my dream: 1' sensor camera phone with 35 eq...

danieljay: These photos taken are kinda horrible. Not to toot my own horn, but I think my gallery of work shows a bit better ability of the iPhone X in various slighting conditions using both the stock camera app and shooting RAW / post processing : https://www.flickr.com/photos/58552682@N03/

good samples..small sensors still struggle a lot under harsh lights conditions...
https://www.flickr.com/photos/58552682@N03/37502383394/
has the same problem as this one from dpreview:

, only in a smaller degree..

worldcup1982: The very first photo shows how absolutely wrong this software solution can be.
Her arm is out of focus and yet the head is sharp... With the baby also in focus...
Jeh... That's just awful

That's possible.. And sad...

paulfulper: All polar bears will die one day , of old age ,disease and more......and all those deaths will look very sad , all of them.
I suspect global warming is invented by many scientists manipulated and coached by politicians

I suspect there's a lot of stupid people all over the world. So It's obvious, the world will end sooner than we think. Thanks to humans stupidity

In reply to:

Androole: Looks pretty decent for a compact. At the same ISO, it's about as good as a modern M4/3 sensor, maybe even slightly better. So if you only need the 24-70mm range, and want weather-sealing, it's a good and even smaller alternative to something like a E-M5 II + 12-50mm.

The lens seems very decent. But slow... It's like having a kit lens in a small body for much more money. Just because it's small.
It's a shame that canon is always worried about not compete with themselves.
This camera with at least f2.8-4 would already be more appealing...

Checat: In compare with 1inch compacts it looks good, even with adjustment based on slow lens. But… in compare with something like A6300 it looks so bad it is not even funny :/ (same sensor size, similar body size, and price point (with lens).

Humm. I was seeing the A6500... So maybe I'm wrong...

Nope... It's using a zeiss 55mm...so the Sony is a much more expensive combo than the already pricey gx1 III

The Davinator: Great idea. Obviously it is as hard as a lunar landing or curing cancer to allow the screen to rotate....but hey, follow a hashtag...why not?

It's not new. It's just, now, being used by a giant corporation
