Finally something that is better than a 500 Dollar Sigma dp2 Quattro.

princecody: I've never bought a Samsung but lately I feel Apple is swindling me with its priority hardware and software & the only reason I haven't bought a Samsung is because battery issues 🤔

Hmm, I had a Note 2 and a Note 4, and I loved them. Yeah I must admit the battery life was on the weak side, pun intended, but at the time they came out they were a Huge phone compared to anything else.

Looks like Samsung still hasn't figured it out, Note 7 well we won't go there, but I remember having "bulging batteries" in my Note 4 back then.
No perfect phone i guess, they all have warts.

You sure can't complain about the colors. Fuji knows how to do that aspect. I liked them a lot.

On article iPhone 8 front camera rumored to capture 3D images (76 comments in total)
In reply to:

Zoom Zoom Zoom: Just a couple years ago 3D was all the rave. All movies were being released in 3D, all TVs were 3D capable, video projectors all 3D ready, some phones had dual 3D cameras and & glass-free 3D screens, Graphics Cards were all on the 3D spree, all high-end laptops w/dedicated GPUs were 3D ready, some laptops even had glass free 3D screens, handheld gaming consoles were getting 3D displays, camcorders were all getting 3D capabilities & dual lenses, still cameras were starting to get 3D interchangeable lenses..

BOOM! All has died quicker than any fad Ive witnessed to date. Its all so over, so nowhere-to-be-found-anymore, so dead & so buried.. its like.. well.. priceless:) The push of whole world for 3D & the speed it all gets killed is hysterical. Some new TVs even make the point they're NOT 3D capable anymore, thats how badly this is to be KILLED OFF!

NOW, Apple is talking 3D stuff? Now?..just to show you how late, retard & lethargic this innovation-less company has pathetically become.

I may be wrong, but I think the 3D thingy is for face recognition for securing your phone more than movies. They are getting rid of maybe the home button which is the fingerprint reader also. So it maybe connected??

onlooker: Perhaps I've missed it somewhere, but I am trying to compare Panasonic's IBIS to that of Olympus E-M1 II in still photography. For example, now that Panasonic has the IBIS, can I put Olympus 25 mm f/1.8 on it and get the same stabilization results as I would from the Olympus E-M1 II?

I wish you would have an article on the comparison of Panasonic GH5 vs. Olympus E-M1 II for still photography, item by item (not bombastically puerile proclamations in occasional comments).

Well I have a GH4, sold my EM1 mkI, have Panny G7, Oly EPL1, so I am a m4/3 fan. So if you are into photos go Olympus, video go Panasonic, simple as that.

From what I heard a few months ago, Panasonic helped Olympus with the video on the EM1 mkII and Olympus helped Panasonic with the IBIS part. And they both helped support the 20mp sensor. So you really can't go too wrong with either one.

In reply to:

steelhead3: I see Canon is copying Kodak and trying to cover everything so in the end they will have a portfolio that the lawyers can fight over.

Canon makes photo printers also, but who even prints anymore. Things happen to even great companies.

But there is only 2 lens that do that.

vscd: http://www.canonrumors.com/canon-continues-marketshare-dominance-in-japan/

DSLR Camera Markshare 2016 (Japan)
Canon 63.3% (56.2% in 2015)
Nikon 31.6%
Ricoh 4.8%
Mirrorless Camera Markshare 2016 (Japan)
Olympus 26.8
Canon 18.5% (13.6% in 2015)
Sony 17.9%

[...]seems the patents are not the only dominance. In the world biggest photomarket, japan, Canon also dominates Mirrorless in front of Sony. Only Olympus is ahead. Fuji? ...never heard of her ;)

Somehow I find it hard to believe a country with 127.3 million people buy more cameras than China, or India, or maybe the US even?

GabrielFFontes: Wow, that's amazing. An APS-H sized sensor stomping full-frame competitors.

Anyone know why we don't have this type of sensor in full-frame and APS-C still cameras? Is it more expensive to produce, for some reason?

DXO does not test using in software imagine processing. It is just the raw signal off the sensor.

webrunner5: I see nothing wrong with young people, even old, trying out something that was wonderful at the time.

Not everything that is old is bad. What is wrong with people doing what They want, not what some people think they should want.

So I guess everyone is suppose to go out and buy a $50,000.00 Arri 35mm film camera and say $20,000.00 worth of 35mm film to start to learn how to shoot on film.

The heck with learning in Super 8mm that is cheap to use.

Well we can only hope they hit the jackpot on their 100th. They have been the face of 35mm since I was a kid.

Albert Valentino: Funny how the 'sweet spot' for the ideal size seems to change ever few years. Much like the 'sweet spot' for pixel count for any sensor format.

I guess the so-called 'sweet spot' is nothing but the latest marketing ploy. The trend is phones get bigger, computers/ipads get thinner, pixel packing is denser, prices increases, as profits increase swaying the public to upgrade from something the works fine to something else that works fine.

The "sweet spot" changes a LOT when you get older LoL. I could use a iPad Pro if fit in my pocket to see the screen well!

I don't use a iPhone 6s Plus for no reason trust me.

That's what Sony fanboys would (will) say!

Maybe he will switch to the M5!
