cosinaphile: while not a primary component of the camera itself ,...the screen of the iphone x is utilized to review images and generally view them later at one leisure

a colleague of mine who has been using apple as long i i can remember and who knows of my materials analysis backround recently asked me to look at some issue with the screen , namely scratches after only 5 weeks of use

using a hastings triplet loupe i surveyed the screen and it is literally cris crossed with scratches some simple microscopic lines some are deep and visable even with the screen operational
looking at his old 6plus which i asked to see there is n where near the damage after
years of use without screen protector

i think apple should replace his screen and told him persue this
i fould this strange and unacceptable

You are so used to entitlement now, you dont even realize when you demand it anymore:

"i think apple should replace his screen and told him persue this
i fould this strange and unacceptable"

You've also become extremely hard to understand....

...Unlike the memo...

crystal clear in it's message 8)

I found out at a very young age that you don't "deserve" anything in life.

You earn it.

I just find it odd that certain groups of people spend a lot of their lives online campaigning for what they "deserve"

I don't know what this has to do with trump or polar bears, but I am thinking it is going to end with me being the cause for climate change and russian hackers....no?

Sucks that memo dropped hey? What a burn.

Opinions on how well showing up to a wedding with only an iPhone would go?

...not only in the outcome of the shots, but in customer relations....LOL!

Please feel free to reply with your comment...

chankosuto: Nice photos, not special but not bad. Smart phone quality (which is good nowadays). It does the job of documenting, but as far as image quality the result are as expected from those devices.

document a football game with your iphone. Try a fashion show...and also a wedding

let me know how it goes

I think it says it all when you read the license agreement:

"This license does not include the right to compile photos from Unsplash to replicate a similar or competing service."

He is totally cool with using other people's work for free, in perpetuity, without credit.

But not his.

I am perfectly fine with having images no one else has access to. Just makes mine even more valuable, authentic and original.

Eric Hensel: We're rapidly reaching the point where working for a "living", and business with a profit motive is rapidly becoming obsolete.

You are correct sir, it is going to have some devastating ramifications.

SarahTerra: YES!

THIS IS WHAT IVE BEEN ASKING FOR YEARS NOW!!

WAY TO GO NIKON!

A 400 f4 would be the ultimate wildlife lens when weight, aperture, size and reach are all considered.

Yeah i read it, I just am hoping they take it further...i wouldnt pick up the 400 5.6...already have that with my 300+TC

In reply to:

splashy: Nothing good about this picture, only thrill seeking sensation.

I disagree, excellent use of the lines on the ground and the truck edges to draw attention to the fire. The smoke is perhaps slightly over-processed for my taste, but thats about all I can fault here.

bjornphoto: Sometimes I think people here are like the annoying "audiophiles" who don't enjoy music that isn't played with the "right" audio equipment.

The most recent smartphones produce great images. Not technically better than DSLR's, but certainly enjoyable for the majority of people who look at the image as a whole rather than each pixel.

The iPhone X is top of the pile for many people and fair play to those who go out and take great photos with it. I can see why they don't give a damn what people on the internet think of them. Photography with any camera you choose can be enjoyable.

pffff... it's made of glass.

Its going to be dropped.

The end.

facepalm!

In reply to:

Boissez: Good review, but I think you missed to touch upon two things that makes the iPhone great for photo and video: 10-bit colors and the iMovie app. With these two, I can do a lot of swift editing directly on the phone that just can't be done on an Android.

Yeah but nether is suitable for long term archival, storage, reproduction or distribution.

You are going to have to edit the shot again on your PC/MAC in lightroom or something else.

Not a whole lot of motivation for me to do that IMO

Why does every one of your comments always end with someone or some entity/group

"deserving" something?

Going out on a limb here, but any good camera is probably not made in a glass case.

Just sayin.

In reply to:

The Davinator: Man...what a bunch of rude, arrogant, self important comments attacking a person and his choice of equipment. Ironically enough, most of the people with rude comments have empty galleries.

I have an empty gallery because i don't trust dpreview to host my content, they hand out band around here for saying things like "iphone sucks"

Because he clearly has zero intention of shooting Tibetan wildlife, which is probably quite interesting.

TMHKR: This is basically the Nikon version of DO lenses, right?

Mtf charts don’t tell the whole story either.

For instance the 10.5mm DX fisheye has horrible mtf, but it’s contrast rendering and colour are simply through the roof. Very first picture you will go wow. truly one of nikon’s hidden gems.

Regardless fresnel lenses are for wildlife photographers looking to cut weight from thier pack.

I m hoping the 510 gets shrunken in size and a 400 F4 PF released. Very likely could be one of the last setups I ever buy.

Link | Posted on Feb 4, 2018 at 16:48 UTC

I'm super excited for this, but I dont think a 400 F5.6 is enough, it needs to be F4. Reasoning:

You get 420mm F5.6 with the 300mm F4 PF + TC and hardly any loss of sharpness, if any.

NIKON IF YOU ARE READING THIS:

400mm F4 (or better) PF

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE

In reply to:

Astro Landscapes: I heard that Nikon also patented a new form of currency with which you can pay for these lenses. It's going to be called cryptokidney.

the 300 F4 is reasonable.

But I agree, I hope they don't overcharge here.

In reply to:

Focus Shift Shooting: This was a big upgrade for anyone who used the D850 for astrophotography.

The whole idea of long-exposure noise-reduction was to lower the noise, and instead the camera was actually introducing more noise!

If you don't use it and don't think the other bug fixes are important, then don't bother updating your camera. If you do use LE-NR, then it is significantly important and your pictures will be much, much better now.

As for all those crying about why not my camera; maybe next time.

The D850 is a home-run. There are not very many cameras as powerful and as fun to use as the D850. Go buy one!

Don't need your excuses, justification or commentary. The "adequate fps" you are suggesting only comes with the purchase of another $999 in accessories.

Still doesn't address the buffer.

You think the D850 is the ultimate, great.

I dont and theres not a thing you will ever be able to do to change my mind. It has been clearly documented the D850 has significant weak points, and while image quality is superb...there are tradeoffs.

Keep things in perspective....The D3 at one point was considered the ultimate. Not anymore.

The lenses you attached to it still are.
