  • You can't assume perfect scaling of a given lens sharpness to higher resolution sensor. :) But I do agree that the NX 30mm (and probably the 85mm) is probably among the sharpest cropped lens out there.
  • Author wrote the review thinking two lenses have the same sensor?

    Uh oh.

  • Seems more than typical amount of flare for a smartphone. We are not even talking about shooting into the sun here. I highly doubt they will be able to fix these in...

  • Nokia Lumia 1020 is right up there too. Their superior IQ is very obvious to my eyes. (Not surprising given their larger sensor size.) Yet those two are ranked consistently well below most recent...

  • I heard bokeh is possible too. But is there some sample shots from Apple demonstrating such capability? I hope they are not full of distracting artifacts rendering them a mere gimmick you play with...

  • Thanks. If true, it sounds like a mixed bag. While it didn't get worse, the 28mm would still be about 0.5 stop worse than the competition. The 56mm would be a whopping 2.2 stops worse but I suppose...

  • Do we know if they have improved on sensor size? I can't find any info on it. One thing that made iPhones consistently underperform compared to other high ends like GS7 and Lumia 950/950XL was its...

  • I use OneDrive. I just save my jpeg files to local OneDrive folder tree on my PC and they get automatically synced to the OneDrive cloud. Using mobile OneDrive app, you can access them anywhere ...
  • Actually the most interesting bit in that review for me was DPReview's assertion that Nikon 1 series is no longer being developed. Pretty big news and makes me go hmm...
  • So they switched from gel filters. Interesting. I assume these don't age as fast. Do we know how long they remain serviceable (without calibration using a secondary reference meter)? I might buy one. ...
  • Did they announce some change in underlying technology? Or are you going by your experience? I'm not sure we are talking about the same thing here. I'm talking about sending off your meter to ...
  • Hm, not sure what you are asking. The poster was saying factory calibration was done at higher brightness than 120 cd/m2 and if I were to use the monitor at 120 cd/m2, I would not necessarily get ...
  • As I mentioned earlier, my main goal is to get accurate and consistent sRGB gamut rendering across most programs. Sorry, I cannot just stick with only color managed apps. Specifically, I would ...
  • I recommend getting a dual-band WiFi router because the 2.4GHz is subject to more interference (from neighbors and microwave oven). But I personally wouldn't spend $174 on a Wifi router, though. ...
  • Good point. FWIW, I think AnandTech do a pretty comprehensive job with monitor reviews (they use a spectrometer + colorimeter combo) and show some monitors are indeed quite good (dE<3) without ...
  • Thanks for the link. Lots of interesting information there. One thing I wish they covered is colorimeter's accuracy over time. IIRC, those color filters are quite sensitive to humidity and can ...
  • Thanks. Actually that's my only real goal here -- to get consistent sRGB colors from all programs. As far as I can tell, those factory calibrated monitors (e.g. select Dell models) don't come with ...
  • Created discussion thread Factory calibrated monitors
    Hi All, I currently use a 27" IPS monitor that I calibrated myself using an X-Rite colorimeter but there are many programs (web browsers, photo viewers, video players, etc.) that don't support ...
  • Did you try Lumia 950 or 950 XL? They are exactly opposite of what you describe--you get fantastic results, arguably the best in class, without any hassle. If you have iPhone, try MS's new Pix app...

  • @gray
    Look, I think you misunderstood my comment. I'm not saying MS will definitely be successful with their new plan. I'm just saying author's statement is not supported by MS's announced plan....
