Sony got criticized for the star eater problem
LG got criticized for the same on their OLED TVs
Pentax got criticized for excessive smoothing of high ISO images
All phone companies got criticized for excessive image processing
Back in the days, all digital compact camera and video camera makers got criticized for interpolation and upscaling "digital zoom"

.. and now Nvidia gets credit for time-interpolation and artificial detail creation?

SimenO1: Actually all of the suggestions have so so image quality. I wouldnt rely on any of those for preserving memories. I would exchange ruggedness for image quality and bring one 360-camera (why settle for 170 when full surround VR are available?), and a rugged DSLR (K-1 + WR-lenses) for high quality imaged memories, and some non WR because they have other strenghts.

@Androole: I think you misunderstand. For documentation, i choose just a phone camera. For preserving memories, I choose better equipment because I know it will bring the memories forward more often.

Androle: Not everybody can afford several cameras or a good one for that matter. Some are too lazy to bring the better one, and some simply prioritize to travel lighter. This works fine for many people, and I respect their decision.

However, I have been there and regret my decision many times. I have the opportunity to choose, and I prioritize a little extra weight to get those memories as clear and good as possible. Sometimes I'm lucky and get fantastic images that I print large and it makes me feel good when I look at them. My family loves them and they attract visitors as a magnet. If I didn't prioritize like that, I wouldn't it print large, and I, my family and others would not see those memories that way. Some meh small prints or on screen swapping simply don't stand out.

NDT0001: I own and use the Version II and I literally cannot fault the optical quality and autofocus performance. It performs beyond my expectations. It gives images back from my 5D4 as good as any of my primes. I wonder why Canon would feel the need to update this lens?

I guess its just an excuse to increase prices, while keeping their engineers occupyied with something. Very little new happens nowadays as the sales numbers are record low (for this decade)

On article Sony reveals faster, higher-res OLED viewfinder display (378 comments in total)

Wow DPR, did you have UXGA PC monitors already in the 1980s, a decade before they got available to the general public? As far as I know UXGA first surfaced in high end workstations in the mid 90s.

By the way, DPR should be consistent in some way. Please differentiate between RGB pixels and single color dots on cameras and digital images too.

On article Does sensor size still make a difference? (1053 comments in total)
In reply to:

Matsu: A lot of phone images look great on screen, but many of the over-processed ones are still falling apart even at 8x10 sizes (where the in-camera algorithms have taken over to either add depth blur, or low light image clarity and noise suppression). The portrait image in this article is a perfect example: embedded image size looks pretty good, opened up full size on my 15" laptop screen it already looks pretty bad. Smart phone manufacturers have nailed in camera processing for small display sizes - great for sharing and mobile viewing on social media platforms where 99% of these images live.

Fuzzy objects like hair, fur, grass, leaves, sand and some textiles on phone sensors generally look horribly de-noised/de-detailed when viewed in larger then post card sizes. If the noise processing could be adjusted or turned of in raw we could at least control the damage to our preference.

Deanaaargh: I am not sure I want to take the advice of someone who isn't able to correctly describe battery capacity.
Watt =/= Watt hour
For a community as pedantic about units and terms as the photographic one this seems like a large oversight.
It really is a whole different matter if one is actually interested in wattage as it is related to peak current draw.

I stopped wasting my time when I understood that this guy don't understand the difference between W and Wh.

Focus Shift Shooting: I have never met anyone who lost their pictures on their hard-drive and didn't simply just have a backup. What kind of a photographer doesn't have a backup?

I find all this cloud-storage nonsense is just that... nonsense.

The big companies saw the price of hard-drive space plummet and found a way to make money from selling something to people that they didn't need. That's all that is happening here.

If we could bottle air and get people to buy it, then it would be popular too. People are gullible and naïve, and companies know it.

Hyper111: What if the cloud company gets bankerupt? Or if they have poor security and get hacked? Or if your user lisence allows them to exploit your content without compensation? Of if the user lisence are changed to something unacceptable to you, lets say demanding 10$/GB of data downloaded back to you. Or of some gouverment takes down the service in your country due to legal issues?

Dont fool yourself to think that big data cloud companies offers risc free storage or backup.

I'm not sure which is worse. NSA or china..

Its a reason the promoted price are low. You are not the customer, but the product.

Now I'm satisfied with the resolution, but the framerate could be higher.. I want at least 60p :p

In terms of sensitivity and DR, isnt BSI a technique that have diminishing returns on larg pizel sizes, like 3,8 (100Mp) and 5,4 microns (50Mp), compared to FSI?

Alex Zeee: A flying 100MP medium format drone, basically all my photography dreams in one! Can't wait for the time in my life where these types of things are seen as old tech and sold for next to nothing

That will happen when supersonic jet powered gigapixel 6x7 format camera drones are sold for a few thousand $. Prepare for a long wait..

MightyMike: Number fudging!

75mm F0.95 (lets say F1.0) should require a 75mm front element.... So... how does it take 72mm filters????

Now if it was a 77mm thread or even more likely an 82mm thread then sure by all means it makes sense.

Mike

The flat lens aproximation works much better for normal and tele lenses, for example a 75mm.

Lenses with front glass diameter = focal length / aperture number tends to have cats eye bokeh and lots of vignetting.

@junk1 If it was equivalent to 75mm on full frame, lets say using a 50mm lens on a 1,5x crop sensor, then the lens had to be f/0,6333 to be equivalent to f/1,95 on full frame. 50mm/0,6333 = 78,95 cm. Exactly the same as 75/0,95. Its physics/math. If the numbers don't match, its not equivalent.

Rick Knepper: Fake Resolution.

I agree on that, but I disagree that its fake resolution. I would also prefer other technicues, but under the given circumstances pixel shifting (in camera or manual) is better then single images.

When I don't have a tripod and don't carry a longer lens to do stitching with, I will use pixel shift in stead of single exposures. Better then nothing. :)

PhozoKozmos: except drones

any supercar burdened by extra loads
such as the huge camera rig weight (front heavy)
and un-aerodynamic escalated frontal surface area is going to slow it down below its maximum

I have been taking pictures through the window of an airplane - anyone faster? :p

Mortal Lion: Just use the tripod pixelshift. What I want to know is why the yellows in handheld pixelshift are so dramatically different from the other images:

Just a theory, they forgot to use the same white balance.
