  • Well I have a Panasonic TZ70 with a 30x optical zoom and an EVF that fits in my pocket, that is the only dedicated camera I have now because nothing else can compete with it, certainly not a ...
  • Thats really funny :-) So what you are saying is that Smartphone images aren't as good as they look !!!  :-)
  • The reason these threads keep appearing is because smartphones are now really good, and more and more people that had previously only been interested in dedicated cameras are realizing this Smartph ...
  • It has certainly revived my interest, it sounds like you feel the same, I love my smartphone camera :-)
  • I have noticed that these days, many people that have the latest and greatest cars/phones etc. have them paradoxically because they have no money :-) Contract hire cars, Phones on contract etc, ...
  • I used to believe what Rambow wrote until I bought a refurb OPPO Reno 10x zoom phone for £185 on ebay, I am amazed at the advances, it has a superwide lens along with a 10x hybrid zoom using a 5x ...
  • I do actually agree with you here, I have been using mobile devices for work since Windows CE so I get the point. When I was forced to abandon Windows 10 Mobile because Microsoft walked away from ...
  • I agree which is why you are a mug if you pay £1000 for a phone which will likely be selling for about £300 within 12 months, I still believe that if you choose carefully, used high end or ...
  • Wasn't that the case with ever improving compact cameras? yet we seemed to talk endlessly about those here too, and to me, the advances in smartphone tech are far more significant than the tiny ...

  • I bought a 6 month old OPPO Reno 10x which origionally retailed for around £800 or more for £185 with a warranty because the replacement model was 5g capable but all else was the same, so there ...
  • Created discussion thread History repeating itself in the market
    In the early days of digital cameras, there was rapid advance with new releases of all kinds of dedicated cameras almost daily, as time went on, heaps of these were discarded as people upgraded ...
  • I dislike the Android menu system and the stock Android launcher is so boring, I can almost kid myself that I am still using windows now until I go into settings which are a jumbled mess compared ...
  • I think this is improving, my wife has a cheap Nokia that advertises a three day battery life, she genuinely gets 5 days between charges so even at 50% capacity it would still be ok.  It is ...
  • Hmm depends how good smartphones become, at this rate of progress with all the software wizardry, they may match today's large sensor cameras and then most would conclude a dedicated camera just ...
  • The reason I love smartphone cameras is that I dont like spending money, the latest and greatest smartphones at any time depreciate so fast, so long as you dont need the "very" latest, they are an ...
  • UHHHH ???? they are not different at all, Auto Exposure on both systems is meant to give good results with no thought to metering mode or exposure compensation for those that are not interested in ...
  • Of course I realise that, but fully Auto Exposure should work like a smartphone and it is rarely anywhere near as good, some degree of exposure compensation is almost always required, this is not ...
  • Very well reasoned comments and I agree, the DOF advantage is often so useful and as you say, they just seem to get the exposure spot on pretty much every time, I have no idea why Auto Exposure on ...
