  • That's great news!

    Not everything must be made in China. I love my Sigma lenses made in Japan and my car made in Germany. Production close to design boosts innovation and uniqueness.

    If Nikon...

  • The tests are really informative. I would also appreciate if top selling phones would be better covered.

    Samsung is #1 and hardly covered -- the Note 8 features a zoom camera. Apple is #2 and...

  • With 1000 fps, HDR photography should become a pleasure to use. Take for instance 2 shots in 2/1000s of a second. Even if a bit more time would be needed for full size images, the results might...

    Try to train all the people generating distorted portraits -- or give them a dedicated portrait/zoom button right at their fingertips.

    It appears like with a kit lens having something like f/3.5...

  • Commented on article iPhone X vs. Samsung Note 8

    Clearly looks like a montage. The phone is besides the face and should be directed towards the same. This would change angles of view, i.e. different pictures would be seen in the background and on...

  • Commented on article iPhone X vs. Samsung Note 8

    I'm also wondering how many people will follow Apple at this price point. What I'm missing most is innovation on top of what iPhone 7 Plus did already offer (beyond animated emojis).

    Have a look...

    The S8+ has no dual camera. You can say what you want against Apple, the least thing they achieved is to liberate us from ugly portraits suffering from facial distortion.

  • Commented on article iPhone X vs. Samsung Note 8

    Blame Apple for basically having the iPhone X not ready for the scheduled announcement in September. Dpreview just transports the message.

  • Commented on article iPhone X vs. Samsung Note 8

    Following data from the above link to anandtech.com, the iPhone 7 Plus has a 4mm f/1.8 main lens that is equivalent to 28mm f/12.6 on full frame. Not really impressive for low light photography,...

    Which data are you missing?
    See for instance here: https://www.apple.com/lae/iphone-x/specs/

    I'm afraid that's it for this years iPhone update.

  • Commented on article iPhone X vs. Samsung Note 8

    Well, the article states 1/2.55" for the Note 8. The 7 Plus has an 1/3" sensor --

    Meaning there is some room for Apple...

  • Commented on article iPhone X vs. Samsung Note 8

    Good that Samsung adopted the wide/tele dual camera approach for the Note 8 (as opposed to wide/super-wide ala LG or color/bw ala Huawei and Nokia). Interestingly the new Huawei Nova 2 offers a...

  • It is tricky that Samsung offers both: last year's top models at reduced price (S7) and this year's mid class models (A5). Comparing side by side, the camera module of the S7 is larger. It has a ...
  • Did Pixel ever take on iPhone? Have a look at the market share!

    Just bought a last year's S7 and am impressed by the performance/price ratio. The camera does a decent job. It surprises me that...

  • Commented on article iPhone X: What you need to know

    Hmm, I remember keynotes where Tim Cook highlighted that the software on iPhones is significantly more up-to-date than on Android phones -- explicitly comparing with Android.

    Would not call Apple...

  • Commented on article iPhone X: What you need to know

    Agree that the initial iPhone was revolutionary by the way it combined touch screen, just one button, sensors and connectivity/computing features in a phone. ... that's long time ago ...

    Meanwhile...

  • Commented on article iPhone X: What you need to know

    The highlights "AMOLED", "edge display" and wireless charging are well known from other manufacturers since a while. Did Apple evolve from a trend setter to a follower? Would be the world's first...

  • Replied in Thank you
    I had the Sigma 17-50mm for a couple of months. Enjoyed constant f/2.8 and sharpness of the lens a lot, compared to my former 16-85mm f/3.5-5.6. Missed the 50-85mm range sometimes though. Speaking ...
  • Yes, you don't NEED to ask. But the guy has a gun and might be under stress. Why not saying "hello" and exchange a smile?

  • Thank God the photographer survived!

    Next time better ask the policemen before setting up a tripod for taking photos of his actions.
