dpfan32: :D :D nooo the sky rocketing prices have nothing to do with profits ... noooo :D :D

I don't matter who takes the money, but WE ALL pay them. And they getting higher and higher every year.
Sweat labor in Asia on one side and remaining high prices on the other side. Someone get's very rich at the expense of the workers and customers and this is not right.

dpfan32: Thinking NSA, now they have a scan of your face in addition to all the other data, like finger print, credit cards, buying profiles, location history.... Now they know, who you really are :P

No matter where they store it and in which form they store it, the NSA surely has a few backdoors ;)
I believe Snowden when he says that the smartphone is a horrible device when it comes to privacy.
It's a matter of who you believe, I don't believe Apple's marketing department.
And this mathematical model can be surely reversed to a photo. Look what for example Lightroom does with RAW data of your camera :)

Nikonandmore: :
Looking back at the FIRST PHONE I EVER OWNED, I deeply miss my original Palm Treo! I bought it at Fry's.

You want revolution? That was it. I remember the feeling of a phone that in fact could do everything no other phone could do. It missed having a bigger screen and being tactile, Wifi and more fluid graphics to be everything the iPhone became a few years later.

To date, undoubtedly the truly most revolutionary phone I've ever owned. The iPhone, years later, was no more than an optimized version of the Treo with a lovely skin and the worlds best marketing machine behind it.

iPhone my a..s, sorry.

Palm was the first that (almost) did it all and they could have ruled the tech world. They blew it.. no one else to blame but their idiotic selves, their pathetic management and their completely clueless corporate vision of the future.

And you know what? Just as clueless as Apple is becoming, as China their biggest market and bet, is in complete free fall, eaten away by everyone else.

Tha iPhone pics up new technology more or less later than the competitors and implements it in a way, more people are willing to use it :)
Now maybe for example 4K and HDR will finally take off :) Now it's time for Canon as well to go 4K in available products :P

dpfan32: 2010 I payed for the newest entry level iPhone 4 619€
Now you have to pay 1149€ for the iPhone X! Almost double!
Don't tell me about the iPhone 8 this isn't really a ne model.
Sorry Apple, long live my iPhone 6S (I know it won't)

My iPhone 6S works fine as well :) But I think tha battery won't work forever + there might be a future update which makes the iPhone 6S too slow.
I will keep the 6S as long as possible.
Franz Weber seems to be typical cash cow for the manufacturer like Apple. He doesn't care how much an iPhone costs. He buys it anyway. Or maybe he doesn't like critical comments on a forum at all.

Every new camera gets more and more expensive every time. On a few years. Where does it end? In a few years 5000€ for the RX10 MK10 :)

zodiacfml: At first glance, I was impressed due to its slim profile and articulating screen; finally catching up with smartphones.
But, a quick look at the comments below reminded me of Sony's a5000 or a6000 series which is a little bit bigger due to its grip and larger battery.

Pancake lens for 150€? Nope. 55-250mm lens for 150€? Nope. 50mm f1.8mm lens for 100€? Nope. Good standard zoom lens for 80€? Nope.
That's is. Maybe the sensor is much much better, but when I can not justify the higher costs for good lenses than the whole camera system is not suitable for my needs.

I had this and now I have the original M :) It's all about the lens selection and their prices :) I wanted a small almost pocketable camera and the small Sony lenses didn't suite my needs.

I see no reason for this .... M6 without proper grip?

dpfan32: The problem with smartphone pics is that they are heavily processed.
They look good on the smartphone's display. But when you apply more effects on apps like Snapseed, noise and artifacts in the sky are appearing immediately. Even when I shoot RAW with my iPhone the sky has plenty of noise when I make sky details visible. As I said, no problem on the iPhone's display but viewd on a desktop PC you can clearly see that the picture is made by an iPhone. It's a matter of what you got used to. Someone who used a large sensor camera will never be fully satisfied by an iPhone camera.

I mean look at this:

needs heavy noise reduction

A colleague has a Google Pixel XL. It beats the iPhone hands down in terms of image quality. I was pleasantly surprised by the outcome. I have a Nokia 808 and 1020. For pixel peepers these milestones of mobile photography are a relevation :P But they have big problems with dynamic range and much worse auto-exposure that modern smartphones like the Pixel or the iPhone. I did often comparison shots and in several landscape photos I missed the sky completely on both Nokias, it was burned out, whereas the iPhone did a well balanced photos OOC. For small display usage modern smartphones beat every camera with their processing power. When I make a landscape with my Canon EOS M and the iPhone, the iPhone photos look much better on the small display. But when you take your time in Lightroom the EOS M photos beat the iPhone photos hands down.

2eyesee: I'm surprised that such soft, low resolution images are presented as evidence that ICL's are becoming obsolete.

At full size they are only 960x720, so wouldn't hold up to even small prints or viewing on anything other than a small smartphone screen. At even at this <1MP size, they are very soft viewed at 100%:

https://scontent.fakl1-2.fna.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/20374439_10154573133645706_418548207944359257_n.jpg?oh=5d3338b4313e4e2a85480e4ad3fffa1e&oe=59ED8D2A.

Forget about ILC's for a moment - a 5 year old RX100 would produce far superior results with its f/1.8 on a 1" sensor (that's 4-7x larger than smartphone cameras).

I used a few years a RX100 beside my iPhones and never felt that the iPhone fotos could replace the RX100 photos :)

Stitzer23: I was hoping pics of Jupiter wouldn't need to be photoshopped to make it more dramatic. Oh well, guess I wont be going then.

I see, hardcore photography guys don't have the time to inform themselfs about the real thing... sad but that's how our matrix is designed. :)

lets get back to photography ;) The picture above is not a real photo. Period. And everybody has his own religion. New mainstream religion is called science.

Sdaniella: there is a war of theoretics going on in galactic/stellar/planetary sciences, and cosmic origins

the "consensus (status quo) science" relies heavily in "big bang theoretics" where gravitational force (the weakest of all forces) as the major driving force in explaining what is formed in our universe

versus

exploratory "electric universe" science where observations openly point to new theoretics covering plasmically visible electromagnetic forces (extremely powerful, active, destructive forces) as major forces in explaining most features of galaxies, stars, nebulas, quasars, planets, comets, asteroids, and planetary phenomena (surface features, activities, and atmospheric activities) far better than gravitational-based "consensus" theoretics

most of the spiral storm structures on the gassy giant planets, and even the sun, are seen as evidence of ongoing massively sized intense electromagnetic "birkland current" driven storms that easily reach into interplanetary space (moon orbits)

@kristof93
c'mon, you deliver no proofs at all! All the "scientists" make researches in the direction they are payed to. Best people? Yes they are best in delivering lying or hiding a portion of the truth.
Please understand: science is made in the frame of the systems requirements and money :) You want me to read NASA documents or believe in government or corporation payed scientists? You are laughably stupid :)
Look at Einstein. He denied Big Bang Theory first than when he arrived in the USA his mind was changed. :) Coincidences...

What if this is not a photography but a simple painting? CGI? Nobody can tell actually. Not me not you. Only NASA :P

Who decides what is valid and what not? (Hint: Who has the Money) :)
Who has a clue of science?
Scientists could be seen as sponsored researcher who are being pushed towards a science direction which is more suitable to the system. Without money there is no science.
As Neil deGrasse Tyson answered to the question "What is gravity?" - "I have no idea - OK next question. ha-ha-ha" followed by a weird explanation. Is this how this main force of our existence is answered to the people? There is something out there in this universe nobody has a clue about and they giving us tons ob BS as explanation. Every week there are several "science"-fiction shows on TV... why?? Entertainment for the people? Education? Indoctrination? I don't want to watch shows where in the end there are more questions than at the beginning. And this poor guy Stephen Hawking with a pre-programmed voice computer is the perfect victim for somebody who is supposed to tell the "truth" and can not do anything against it
