I am surprised, rather than dissecting the phone, weighing it's pro's and con's and the extra amount of light entering the phone at a ridiculously set price, we are bringing the political hue. A good number of netizens have taken the flow of cryptic data transfer seriously. We are well aware that those who use modern phones are really exposed and vulnerable to many probing agencies, be it a state sponsered or private. We are scanned regularly by AI of various data collectors. But when it is a camera phone leading to neighbour's envy, we should stick to the qualitative and formative analysis. We have to pay a little price to play with new toys.

On article Xiaomi teases Mi 9 product images and camera samples (82 comments in total)

Xiaomi, thanks for bringing it to reality. It is aspiring for many people to capture some moments of slices of life and share with, if nobody is there, in the quasi busy world, can share with oneself for a break at times. The quality of the sample is good and satisfactory atleast for a few who are ready to accept anything, if not picture perfect, because all of mine and my surroundings are not exact but an admixture of idiosyncrasies. If I can accept my limitations, I will welcome the new baby even with a third eye!

It is an interesting chapter, opened by dpreview.com. Not every one can or have access to the learning curve of P shop. Yet glossy magazines regularly decor their covers with faces sculpted by the best of the software, an enviable environment for the young. The easy way out to the mainstream os through the beauty mode of the mobile in hand. After all who does not suffer from narcissism?

It's a lonely universe. But hope is the only element that links different stars, asteroids and planets. The satellites are doing tremendous job. For the human being they are the extended sensory receptors. NASA is doing an excellent mission, a science fiction in reality.

On article Gear of the Year 2018 - Barney's choice: Nikon Z7 (358 comments in total)

Year ending is a good time for the reviewers. What ever best in hand can be recomended to the trusted followers of D P Review. But everyone, though photo enthusiastic do not have a deep pocket to persue the dream. Thus a high a technically high end camera is bound to be good at every aspect but yet leave a majority high and dry. This is absolutely my personal view without any intention of arguement. To conclude, no doubt, Nikon Z7 is a fantastic image capturing and enhancing instrument and an object of desire.

As long as smart phone camera makers do not try to make a deep hole in the consumer's pocket their experimental and short lasting hypes are welcome changes. Mobile cameras are made costlier in this process and obviously some are costlier than the D SLRs in the market. We are getting computed snaps. There are differences between self edited and already edited shots by the software gimics or manipulation within the smart phone. But the bottom line is that we like to see and search beautiful things and faces whith a touch of beauty brush and the latest generation of 'little devils' of slim phones do not disappoint us. The camera clusters will increase like a proverbial 'Medusa' and we will become a bunch of selfi-ish narcissist.

Actually I beg to defer. It is not a disorder. From very begining people like to enjoy looking at their own faces. Even inquisitive animals do the same. Do not forget the famous selfi by the primate about a couple of years ago. The primitive people used to watch their own shadows on the surface of still water for hours together in a moon lit night. While modern man go for window shopping he enjoys his own face, semi reflected through the thick showcase glass.
Human is narcissistic from inception. What is the purpose of so many mirrors at home? Think about the big one attached to the master bed.It will be indecent to ask an individual to click for me. I can pose myself against any background at any given time. This is simply a matter of self indulgence in a lonely planet. A selfi is a companion of an otherwise lonesome individual in an apparently perfect world.Self love is not an obsession or a mental disorder but food for a hungry soul.

Those who buy iphone, must know that the company decides and dictates the choice of the cliant. It is not a buyer's domain any more. Every thing casts a long and looming shadow of strict regimen. With android people have options and choices.

On article Shooting with a used DSLR kit that cost me just $80 (282 comments in total)

Once I was going through the old editions of the National Geographic magazine and found that the last page contained nice photos of arctic region taken by some cameras with resolution 1/5th of present day's standard DSLR resolution. That gave me enough confidence to keep my D 80 for atleast another couple of years. I still believe that old is gold. It is the craze that pushes one for a mandatory yearly upgradation of equipments rather than understanding the essence of quality. I am happy to ser that there are enough people who can still be satisfied with sub 100$ cameras. May that tribe flourish.

DP review draws a balance among the good, the bad and the ugly. At times this kind of (no)nonsense articles should be seen as a break of monotony of a series of excellent photographs. Every one had to strain their eye muscles to find out any hidden clue. Fortunately there were none. But there could be other hidden agenda too. It could be a filler too because of lack of other ready articles with the editor.

In olden days 35mm point and shoot cameras used to give same facilitues. Any prime wide angle (say 24mm) lens, keep in infinity one can utilise the same. Pancake lens is good enough to do the said job. There are already many im the market. Thus one should consider twice before investing.

Nobody killed Nokia or dumped it. Nokia did not see the writing on the wall. Atleast in India, consumers were never consulted but model after model were introduced aimlessly. Thus consumers rejected Nokia in preference to better available options. Nokia brand is reintroduced again in a saturated market where most people have preference of their own. We can hear the rumours about specifications only but nothing from the original producers. Npbody says what is special about, sp that I can dump my current phone and will opt for a pricer one. Only brand value is not enough unless there is robust after sell services. Any how I will wait to see the marketing strategy.

It is a kind of travelogue through different countries. Happy to see a photographer who is ready to see people both in distress and in the happier days. Better equipments are welcome but not essential. His vast experience helped me a lot. I feel lucky to be in a country of diverse culture and heritage. The whole write up is very encouraging for me to persue and invest more time to understand people and their life as medium for photography.

On article Sigma 100-400mm F5-6.3 DG OS HSM sample gallery (143 comments in total)

It appears that sample shooting for Sigma 100-400mm HMS lens, at some point crossed the path of Huewai Mate 9 sample collection drive. A serendipitous incident in the beautiful city.

It is nice to see that the manufacturing units are putting together many brains behind the production of such a nice lens.many photographers will be delighted when it will come in the shop. We might get another refined review in this column with a nee set of snaps.
