radissimo: is it me or JPEGS look quite lifeless?

High-contrast, low-saturation jpegs.... Instagram filtered software?

Joking but the feeling really crossed my mind.

EskeRahn: Hmm I would say that I take more pictures with camera-phones, not that I use a real camera less.

But the ease of taking a (poor quality lo resolution) image, and sharing it immediately, had a big appeal even back then, and before the Iphony.

But if you ask me how often I use the 'camera' to anything other than MMS, well then no, only when the quality does not matter

...But that said it do happen that I in a situation let do with the lo quality, rather than going home to fetch the camera if I did not bring it on as well

"poor quality low resolution" is relative. My camera phone (23mp 1/2.3" sensor, 8mp output) give me the same per-pixel quality I used to get from my Canon S95.

Right, low light shots are (still) another story.

wklee: The new iPhones as of 2016 shoot RAW with iOS 10. What's not to like about them?

"iOS, and the physical iPhones, don't really have a right click or two button mouse."

Even if IOS doesn't pack mouse/trackpad support (even on the ipad pro...), they replaced the "right click" by force touch.

In reply to:

NicoPPC: Canon EOS 300X. Cheap, and works really great.

You can get one for 20€ in Europe and you can use all the EF lenses.. great combo with the EF 40mm 2.8 STM.

I tried one wich was in mint condition. But unfortunately I had to replace the battery every 2 film roll. I didn't found the reason and stopped to use it. But it was a significant step up from my father's EOS 1000N!

Okapi001: The fact that you didn't include such classic gems as Olympus OM-1 and/or OM-2 means your list is just meh.

are these cheap on used market? I mean, they are almost collectible today, rising their value, no?

On article Dell announces 4K HDR10 monitor (88 comments in total)
In reply to:

GodSpeaks: 27" is too small for a UHD monitor. I have a 28" monitor, and wish it was larger. I would say 32" minimum for UHD.

24" because I have a small desk where 27" are too big. And bigger screens means higher pixel count for the same density.
The 24" I described is already 16mp... If you don't want to need a gaming computer just to manage your photo base, it's a sweet spot.
16/10 because I do many things on my pc (photos, film watching, web browsing and gaming). 16/9 is awfull for some of them (browsing especially).
16/10 leave you more vertical workspace. again it's a sweet spot between different constraint.
I love the 3:2 ratio from the Surface pro 3 I worked with. But I have no hope for a 24" 3:2 screen to be released while I'm still alive :)

Personaly, I wait for 24" 16/10 ratio WHXGA (5 120 × 3 200) screens. @250PPI, I'll consider that sufficient resolution is reached.

In reply to:

ThrillaMozilla: With a 27 inch monitor the pixel size is around 0.3 mm. Years ago, 300 dpi (0.08 mm) became hopelessly obsolete for laser printers because everyone could see the jaggies.

Now I find that I often go to my 4K TV instead of my very good 2K computer monitor to see how my prints will look. I very much welcome 4K in spite of the cost.

Ultra HD (3840x2160, no DCI 4K here) on 27" 16/9" screen leads to 163ppi and 0.155mm dot pitch.
Still far from all high dpi screen we can get nowadays on smartphones, tablets and notebooks.
300dpi big screens will come sooner or later.

In reply to:

NumberOne: ...Still can't understand why not one single manufacturer makes/offers a 16mm (or even 14mm) to XXXmm instead of 24mm to XXXmm zoom!?
IMO, a bad choice of range - and at least for me, the reason why I will never consider buying a pocket camera like this - 24mm is not wide enough for many situations! :(

Sure there's a market for this newly annouced Nikon 16-50 1" sensored!

oops! :(

Edmond Leung: We know the life is not easy... Those photos remind us fortune is not forever.

If I agree with you litteral meaning, I'm a bit concerned by the reactions and behaviours that can follow such thought.
Please people, don't think of building a wall around you to protect yourself. History is full useless walls, just slowing down life.
I hope there's other ways.

Quantum Scientist: Gloom, despair, suffering, agony, violence and the dark side of life wins again. Let's get as many people to focus on this negativity as possible, which is likely to create more of it. Once again, Pulitzer Prize reveals what low life pathetic scum they really are. They prove once again that their "prize" means nothing.

@Hugo808 : Because you think the only positive things in this arsh reality are "kittens-like"? Thankfully the world is not so binary.
Things are changing all over the world, lot of atrocities, yes; but also lot of positive experiments. While our old "modern world" run towards its ends faster and faster, some people are trying other path in every domain.
So I agree with Quantum Scientist, we need more focus on positive things that are happening right now.

In reply to:

Impulses: It looks pretty sweet, personally I would've liked to see a model with these slim bezels but a 5.2" screen size (in the body of like a 4.7" basically? that'd be glorious)... And after the Note debacle I kinda expected them to come back with something more innovative than slim bezels and Bixby... But smartphone hardware has easily outpaced the average software usage cases IMO, we're fast approaching a plateau.

We already are... Outside benchmark geeks, who have problems running their daily smartphone use even with a middle-range from last year?

In reply to:

lukecookphoto: Confusing naming, is this a successor to the M5 that came out yesterday or a budget friendly camera? Canon releasing cameras faster than Sony it seems.

Edit: No EVF, so a cheaper model. Got it. Still stupid, sounds like it's a successor not a budget version.

It's not a "budget" version.
It's a M5 without the viewfinder, for those who doesn't want or need it.
As simple as that.
And, for once, I thank canon to give us the choice.

In reply to:

Gesture: Nice gallery, Sam. Interested to see how the dynamic range compares to the original model and if there is a better implementation of manual focus. Many of us never imagined Canon getting beyond M2 or M3, so this is good news. I think this form factor could be turned into an even simpler interface. Let's have a box camera for APS-C!

For simpler interface/box camera you already have the M10.
it's smaller and cheaper.

CQui: Does it take into account mountains in the way and location altitude to calculate real sun set time?
Does any one know an app or web site doing this?

TPE for IOS do that.
Need a bit of learning.

scotthunter: If you want an idea of what this camera is capable of, have a look at my images taken with the G7X MkII, which shares the same 1" sensor - www.scotthunterphotography.com

Some really nice pictures Scott!
But I wonder why you make astrophoto with the G7X mkII when it seems you also have a D600? Portability?

tetsumo: I wonder why they take all the pictures using the LCD and not the Viewfinder, for me a viewfinder is a requirement.

Since I'm a french native speaker, I really appreciate your comment.
But it seems that Alphaville was even more efficient! :-)
