nekrosoft13: My Fujitsu ix500 does the same, for lower price.

Yes, its called a "document scanner" but works great with images, does 600dpi in highest mode, about 2-3 seconds per picture.

scans both sides at the same time.

I have that scanner and I would never recommend that for photo scanning. The image quality is just too poor to be a "photo scanner." It lacks the tonality. Its dynamic range is extremely narrow.

On article Apple unveils iPhone 7 and dual-cam iPhone 7 Plus (916 comments in total)

I am definitely ordering iPhone 7 as the camera is significantly better than what's available in my iPhone 6, especially the selfie camera which is currently 1.2 MP... too low... 7 MP is just perfect.

What I noticed is that the skin tones are MUCH more like the skin tones on film - the skin looks less red and more smooth without harsh highlights. Did anyone noticed that in photo samples on apple website?

Looking forward to what reviews have found with iPhone 7.

Camera manufacturers should NEVER apply a fix to cards that are clearly at the fault of card manufacturers.

noflashplease: I shudder to think about the computing resources required to actually edit uncompressed 8K video.

but the sensor is smaller and the pixel is smaller too so it should be as quick as editing 2K.

So, it glows when nuked?

dan801: I think it's too small. They should have made it the same size as the iPhone 6

I have iPhone 6 and it's too big. I am definitely getting SE because it's small and makes it much more portable. Size does matter when it comes to portability especially when you're well traveled. I have iPad Pro because it's light and thin, not a ridiculously bulky heavy laptop.

photoaddict: That is why I switched to Nikon. Canon still lags behind the sensor sensitivity and noise control. ISO-invariant sensors are the future and allows more latitude for me to edit images.

Canon has been nothing but years of disappointment when it comes to competitive image quality. I am fed up with noise when I increase the EV.

Canon doesn't seem to be innovative nor competitive anymore.

There's a dedicated Nikon for astronomy.

rrccad, I've done shots with both Canon and Nikon and found no meaningful difference if both are shot with proper exposure and settings.

But the reality is that I am a human being and I will make mistakes from time to time. Having a Nikon gives me more latitude with fixing my human mistakes.

Wow, you're so way wrong. Nikon has one of the best high ISO sensors. Do you actually read reviews on DPReview? Nikon has consistently outperformed Canon at high ISO image quality when models and prices are similar.

So far, it seems that only S3 Pro has the sensor with the widest DR ever. And since then, there's nothing like that. I don't know of any cameras (including successors of Fuji) capable of having that much DR.

It's really a disappointment that they have not managed to be competitive with S3 and FujiFilm apparently abandoned that sensor.

Hipsters are more interested in "analog" world where things are processed and could easily be interpreted via different mediums, optically.

Digital files are not analog nor optical. You would have to know how to write a code to decode a file. Digital image is made of zeros and ones and there is no way you can optically extract information.

Analog film is organic. It is also optical. It lets you extract data with the use of optics and chemicals rather than computers. That appeals to "hipsters" as it makes them feel like they can actually have a tangible value on it.

I appreciate them. At least they produce results than you people producing works as a result of your computers doing the work for you.

Marcster: Support for RAW? I would like to be able to capture in RAW and insert the SD card right in.

Why not make the iPad Pro with a i7 processor and run OSX?

I have been using macs for over 30 years and recently this is one of the first times I'm tempted to buy the Surface Pro 4. It can do everything the desktop can do. RAW files import from the SD card and full LR editing.

It won't happen because i7 generates too much heat and consumes too much power. iPad pro uses A9 which is extremely efficient and doesn't generate much heat.

Surface pro 4 is an alternative but it's sure an ugly tablet. The stylus is also tacky. And it runs Windows which I hate.

If you want a Mac, You can get MacBook or MacBook Pro - both have Retina display.

The "quantum film" just looks terrible.... it makes me think of VHS quality video. I'd rather use my iPhone.

The DR is a big issue but when there's so many colors that look unnatural, then DR doesn't matter anymore.

Which purple hue from Nikon or Sony is more accurate if you can recall? I see a significant difference in blue-purple hue between cameras.

Chris Yates: Kinda pricey for a Chinese brand.

That's actually cheap as fast lens like that often fetch around a thousand dollars.
