Jacques Cornell: "100m"??? That sounds pretty big. What would happen if a 100m asteroid hit the Earth?

@Mika Y. Pfffttt. The dinosaurs used the metric system?

robertfel: They keep taking away features so that you have to buy accessories.
They removed the mic jack in order for you to buy a $50 much too bulky dongle.
They removed the HDMI port in order for you to buy an $80 media mod (which at least comes with a mic jack if needed).
They used to output 4K from HDMI and killed that feature.
Forget them, I'll get the Insta360 or DJI action cam instead.

Because marketing.

Toni Salmonelli: Is that half a head of a german shepherd in tbe picture of the mountain lake? I'm guilty of pictures with lousy composition myself, but I would expect people trying to sell this camera to choose a better picture.

No. Two small mountain peaks. Covered in fur.

mick232: Image 1 - made for giants? The fingers don't even reach around the grip.
Is that what they call the great Canon ergonomics?

@StevenN How do you know it's ergonomic enough for most people? Former president? What does that mean?

Roland Karlsson: Generally, synthetic DOF looks ugly. Now, I have to admit, that this video look nice. This was the best synthetic DOF I have seen so far. But two things.

1. It is always so that when you look closer, synthetic solutions in phones have serious problems. Not really useful other than for fun. I have never seen anything but toys.

2. Real video cameras for making film are huge beasts that moves on serious trolleys and such, with expensive lenses. All this to make smooth and fantastic films. So, why bother with a phone? It does not solve anything.

Or Kathryn Bigelow, Cameron's more talented ex.

My exact thought.

From their paper:

"We also observed the model to generate very continuous skin texture in face super-resolution, dropping moles, pimples and piercings found in the reference."

Look! It even does retouching.

The globe is filled with flat earthers.

ImagesToo: Very much second rate images. Just look at the images which win competitions like the Australian Landscape Photographer of the year and international salons run under FIAP and PSA competitions. Most of these wouldn't even get an acceptance let alone an award.

Don't mistake the lack of likes. They were actually downvotes.

dbateman: Dpreview should read or search their forums first before posting old news.
This 70 pound, $100 lens isn't worth the list price.
https://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/3205194

Mike doran hopefully can make a profit now.

Also of note, the lens lost weight since 2012.

2012: "It weighs 38lbs, has..."
2021: "The nearly 12kg (26 lbs) lens is..."

ednl: No Mac has Thunderbolt 4! They sneakily advertize it as "Thunderbolt / USB 4" but it's Thunderbolt 3 and the USB speeds aren't even higher than USB 3 (10 Gb/s), it's just that the USB 4 spec is backwards compatible so they can call it that...

But you said "...it's Thunderbolt 3 and the USB speeds aren't even higher than USB 3 (10 Gb/s)..."

Specs on M1 Macmini say two Thunderbolt / USB 4 ports with up to 40 Gb/s.

Which Mac are you testing on giving you only 10Gb/s?
