moga: Yes please, but gone are the times of curved edge display! Samsung figured it's a waste of space, as everyone else did, except Xiaomi...

yeah, and flip phones were hot in the 90's, but Samsung is still pushing that crap in 2022

MightyMike: Were they digging through their old uncompleted projects to find a product they could quickly launch with low cost to develop?

there are not many pancake lenses for full frame DSLRs - it seems like every manufacturer is obsessed with MTF charts, so nobody makes "slow" prime lenses anymore. Everything has to be F1.4 and weight 2 pounds so the charts and dxo reviews are good. There certainly is a market for more compact lenses, and I'm glad Cosina hasn't abandoned it yet.

Coomer: Pretty sure they hit that wall a few years ago.

switched from sony hdr-az1 to gopro 8 recently, and I couldn't be happier with the results - it was the perfect time to switch, as the camera matured and hypersmooth 2.0 works incredibly well. ...and I don't even care about 4K, I just record at 1080p@60 and upscale to 4K to keep the crappy youtube compression in check

Good. Give them a taste of their own medicine. Round corners FFS...

Aleks7: It seems to me that since Hero 5, they're releasing kind of the same package every year only labeling it with higher number.
Can it now shoot sills in RAW reasonably fast? Somehow I doubt...

@Jefftan unless your cell phone is more than 5 years old, it will easily outperform your action camera in terms of stills image quality

buy a camera if you want stills in RAW... seriously, stills are merely "screenshots" from video footage in action cameras, anyone looking for more is looking in the wrong place.

GodSpeaks: Xiaomi make very good phones at very reasonable prices, often costing 1/4 to 1/3 what you would pay for a similarly speced apple or samsung.

@Xavios an Xperia XZ currently running Android 8.0 and it's even worse than the traditional Samsung bloatware that I have on my old tablet. I wouldn't touch a Sony phone with a 10 foot pole.

well, some of us need features which are not allowed in iOS because Apple wants to keep everything under control

@miric have you actually tried any of their mid-range or high-end phones?
Their MIUI is more polished and less clogged than the crap that Sony and Samsung have on their phones. You can also opt for a pure Android phone.

Xiaomi phones are not only cheaper, they are better than the alternatives from the big brands too.

panther fan: Weight weight weight weight

Sigma kicked of the high res game with the 35mm F1.4 Art at 665g

Canon answered with the 35mm F1.4 L II, which increased performance but also increased weight to 760g

Sigma answered again with increased performance in their 40mm F1.4, but also increased weight to a ridiculous 1200g

So the real question is can Tamron stop that madness and deliver better or equal performance at a lower weight

@dansclic: I see you haven't watched the best movie ever made yet

heavy is good, heavy is reliable, if it does not work, you can always hit 'em with it

Mike FL: Huawei story Volume1:

TIME is up.

For decades, Huawei has been built its businesses relying on cheat, lie, steal and spy backed by its government.

Huawei should be being punished to end the huawei story b/c:

Time is up.

yeah, only the NSA is allowed to implant backdoors into network architecture devices

Google Beyonce Hulk.

It's her show and she sets the rules. Don't like it? Don't go there. It's that easy.

those thousands of people with smartphones will only get noisy and blurry photos... they won't capture anything useful...

Imager of: Why would the cripple it with an f4 lens? Could have easily made it fixed f2.8. Or that’s right. That will be next time so you have to upgrade again. 🤔🤨

Because it is (also) an action camera with a 1" sensor and no autofocus.

Everything must be in focus all the time. An F2.8 lens would get blurry out of focus footage throughout the frame.

Elgsdyr: In other news, radio stations world-wide have introduced new rules for Ariana Grande's songs to be played on-air. If a song is to be played, all copyrights of that song will be required to be transferred to that particular radio station. The requirement stems from having 'been taken advantage of by greedy singers in the past.'

you do realize it's the opposite, right?

You record the performance of someone else and expect to get the rights for it, because you're the one who pushed the "Record" button.

Toselli: Sorry voigtlander, you have been beaten by pentax in vintageness!

@Toselli - well, there *are* some voigtlander lenses for the F-mount, so pentax does not beat voigtlander in "vintageness" when it comes to F-mount ;)
