peterwr: Totally unrelated to the Mint InstantFlex TL70, obviously...

https://mint-camera.com/tl70/

This point has been raised on the kickstarter page.
Here the answer :
Rollei Créateur : "They look identical, but Rolleiflex Instant Kamera uses Rolleiflex viewfinder and the production is monitored by our team. Therefore, there are differences in production method and tools."

I would say BS, but I'm no expert.

janist74: No offence, but as I see it, the "IPhone is the best tool for me" originates mostly from laziness.

Is the most important aspect of photography to fast share the photos on internet?

If not, then even an old RX100 would give you more possibilities and technically better photos, in a marginally bigger package. But then yes, you need some extra steps to post your images...

I did something similar during my last backpack trip :
- phone for daylight snapshot
- EOS M + 22 f/2 pancake for better quality and lowlight (APSC in a RX100 size package).
- I can plug a SD reader on my phone, so I used it as local storage (250Go µSD card) and cloud backup (one drive)

After one month and half on the field, I did use equally both of them (including those "memo" pictures of a map, time table and so on...)

A good compromise between bulk and quality.

DavidVogt: Excellent news. Nevertheless, I can't help but feel like those benchmarks are cherrypicked. Most of us have a quad-core i5 or i7 processor or are working on laptops, where Lightroom performance can be extremely poor.

Adobe's benchmarks are run on Xeon or i9 processors with 8+ cores - how many of us use one of those? DPReview's own benchmark is much more telling for the majority of us - a very minor improvement is to be expected, but at this point, it's better than nothing. Props to Adobe for continuing to work on a solution.

@The Sage Knows : looks more like a harddrive bottleneck. Are you working with a recent SSD?

AstroStan: Maybe someone could explain " Lightroom Classic" vs other Lightroom(s)? (preferably without the usual DPR insults and arrogance.)

I'm guessing that "Classic" is not subscription and does not require "cloud"? Or is the distinction related to something else?

I've not been paying attention to Adobe but my very old Lightroom is becoming a nuisance (e.g. no support for newer cameras so I have to do an intermediate DNG conversion). If "Classic" is not a subscription then I may be interested in this upcoming version.

The latest Lr with perpetual licence is 6.14.
Classic is the lightroom you know but by suscribtion with some cloud sync if you want (not mandatory).
The newcomer is Lightroom CC. It's "the future": all your pictures are uploaded on the Adobe cloud. You have access to your catalog from everywhere and from evrey major platform (idevice, android, windows, mac). All your edits are automatically synced on all your devices.

This...just after watching Black Mirror S01E03 "The Entire History of You".
A must see for those saying "It's cool! I have nothing to hide."
Man... "truth is stranger than fiction"!

Alex Akai: What happened to the graphs of Alienware coming on top ? Was that omission deliberate?

"And that's where, in 3 out of the 4 tests Colin performed, the PC outperformed all of the Macs."
Then, the writter still choose to show the only graph where the mac show a big advantage...
Strange choice indeed...

Hachu21: Computational enhancement techniques needs processing power.
Consumer grade cameras don't have the processing power. The gap between an iphone-X's A11 and the EOS M100's Digic 7 must be abysmal.
And it will remain this way in the near future beacause of cost and low sales volumes. I suspect that's also why digic 7 specs are so secret.

yep, I know. But it's a 4 years old camera made by a smartphone manufacturer who dropped the camera business.
To my knoledge, there's no new product of this type on the market.

Clint Dunn: I'm still running a 2011 MBP for my stills photography. Over the years I've upgraded to 16Gb RAM and a 512BG SSD. Now that Apple does not allow you to upgrade their computers I don't know that i would ever buy another Mac...big mistake for Apple.

It depends on the thickness of the chassis. The T470 is noticeably bulkier than a macbook. The T470s is thinner and has less upgradables part and ports, then the X1 carbon is even worse on thoses aspects.
The good thing is : you can choose! At least in the pc world.

PieterB: To really speed up processing stills, adobe should fix their code so that it take advantage of really fast CPUs and GPUs. When the new version of Lightroom came out, it was fast but every new update has made it slower and slower again.

"When the new version (...) came out, it was fast but every new update has made it slower and slower again."
Adobe made it on purpose to save you the hassle of a battery swap.

oops...

lilBuddha: "There may yet come a time when, finally, you don't absolutely need a bigger sensor for better results. And it's not necessarily a matter of 'if,' but a matter of 'when.'"
I agree, but likely not with the same reasoning as the author.
All mobile cameras need to be is just good enough to become acceptable and then manufacturers can rest. They never need be as good as dedicated cameras are now because people will accept less as the standard. It happened with audio, there is no reason to believe it won't happen with imaging.

with your reasonning, and I agree with it, it already happened.
Did you see the sales figures of the last 5-10 years?
How many "non-photographer" people do you know who still bought a dedicated camera in the last 2 years?

TacticDesigns: Just curious what everyone's opinion on this is . . .

Go back to the 1st comparison photo in this article.

Click on the phone version picture (The actual picture). This should load up that picture in a different tab in your browser. (On a desktop browser.) Now, click on that picture, it should zoom in. Take a look.

Now, click on the Canon version. Now click on that picture so it zooms in. Take a look.

What are everyone's thoughts?

I noticed an additional light source in the iphone picture(eye reflection).
Maybe that's why it looks so flat?

otto k: Limiting to only LCD seem quite counterproductive.

This color/HDR/Gamut thing is a nightmare...
As a little hobbyist photographer, I want to change my old TN screen and it's impossible to make a choice :
- 10 bit panels : seems important but when you look at it, you find that you also need a specific videocard (Firepro or quadro) to manage it.
- wide gamut : more colors the better? my camera support the wider adobe RGB gamut. My lightroom editor can also display it.
But in the end, those two "must-have-if-you-are-serious" don't help 95% of the time :
- you share your picture online (no web site manage those standards, let alone browser or OSes.
- you want to print them : you exoprt limited jpegs to send to your online print service... great!
- you print them at home with a non-professional printer (high-end A4 all-in-one in my case) : I doubt I can get many improvement from an adobe RGB workflow.

in the end, for the small enthusiast, we're still better with a full sRGB workflow that will be recognized in all the pictures use case.

Internet Enzyme: QHD is nice and everything but I feel like if you’re buying a display in 2017 you should probably go for 4k. I understand 4k can be expensive, but I feel like future proofing will most likely save you money, Also I dislike that name “QHD”. It’s kind of confusing. 720p shouldnt even be called HD anymore in my book.

Daniel, your initial comment was on resolution, QHD vs 4K. So level of detail.
If now we speak of percieved brightness, paper vs screen, I aree with you. The gap is often disturbing.
But there is no direct link between panel brightness and panel resolution.
