On article Canon G1 X III vs. Sony Cybershot RX100 V (537 comments in total)

This article seems to have overlooked comparing the menus and controls between the two cameras / handling is important to many.

jim seekers: For stills Qaulity, The G1X III will beat and RX100 or RX10 Series hands down due to the larger sensor.

Even ten minute videos it can't shoot?

vinrouge0: That leaf shutter is going to allow for some very creative flash/ambients shots but doesn't get much of a mention so far. I understand most of the negative comments but it would be a very good travel/carry around camera for most people - not videographers though.

Leaf shutters allow flash sync at all shutter speeds.

noisephotographer: "The 8 and 8 Plus include an image sensor with larger pixels"
Wrong, pixel pitch is exactly the same (1.22 micron).

Pixel pitch isn't the only thing controlling pixel size.

What lies do you see?

huyzer: Yup. When something is too good to be true, it usually is.
Shame on them.

Because most people is not all people and because those 3-year old phones don't normally go to a landfill. This just made the used Pixel 2 worth less than before.

KubeKube: Such speedy demise of Apple's latest toy spells trouble for the company's overall direction - easily beaten in its own game - and can hardly justify the $1K they are asking customers to pay. You can scream "The king has clothes!" only so many times :)

Apple.is doomed! (Again, no really this time.)

RedFox88: As with anything google makes, I wonder how long it'll be around. Google has popular maps, mail , and free mobile OS. Everything else seems to come and go quickly.

And search - don't forget search!

J A C S: "Find my best photos" - I shoot Canon, there are no best photos.

So little irony, so much understanding that two wrongs don't make anything better.

PhotoUniverse: Adobe,
Why don't you fix Lightroom performance and support D850 first? Also, support macOS High Sierra! You do know that developers have access to Beta programs and you could've been ahead of the actual release dates.

As unbelievable as it may seem, Adobe can actually woke on more than one program at a time with multiple teams.

guest2015: 8+ has a different camera than 8?

Yes, 8+ has the dual camera module, 8 has a single OIS camera.

sirhawkeye64: People do know that Face detection can pretty much be duped right? Nothing beats a good old complex password that makes no sense.

And to be honest, smartphone prices have gotten ridiculous. $1000 for a smartphone? They only cost, maybe, what $300 to make....

@thematic since the demo units had FaceID locked to the Apple presenters and they weren't allowing retraining, can you explain how they happened to have a picture of a random Apple employee demonstrating an iPhone X with them?

Wrong and FUD again. The FaceID isn't active if the phone is asleep so it isn't capturing anything. FaceID completely relies on the IR sensors to provide the 3D model it uses.

Julio Sánchez: Instead to buy a IPhone to take pictures I buyed a Panasonic TZ100 camera and with the rest of the money in a médium range phone.
No zoom, small sensor, and more other aspects the camera wins.

What do you buy instead of the TZ100 for navigation, web browsing, text messaging, email, phone calls, weather reports, calculator?

walker2000: It seems the improvements come mostly from software.
If iPhone 7/7+ use use same camera app (through new OS upgrade) with iPhone 8/8+, will they get higher score?

Note that the A10 and even earlier about have dedicated image processing hardware, the A11 has the latest version however.

JackM: I wish Apple wouldn't reserve their best cameras for their goddamned phablet. Who wants to carry that huge ridiculous slab around?

The X is the solution to that.

gurgeh: Before the subscription model, Adobe had to invest a lot of money developing new versions in order to get people to buy an upgrade. Now they have a stable revenue stream, so their incentive is simply to minimise costs in order to increase their profit, and their products are stagnating. LR still has appalling performance, and we haven't seen any innovation in PS or LR in a long time.

Now this might work for Adobe in the short and medium term, because the competition is still far behind, but it is catching up. Meanwhile the customers are getting more and more fed up for paying more money than before and getting nothing in return. The damage Adobe are doing to their brand will be hard to fix. Me and a lot of people I speak to are simply waiting for another product that does what we need, and then we will say good bye to Adobe for good.

If you think Apple isn't innovative, you have let your prejudices blind you from the facts.

mattd007: Subscriptions are a great business model for developers, terrible for consumers. Great for a company if you get in early enough - eventually everyone thinks they can do subscriptions too. We are entering the time of subscription overload, death by a thousand subscriptions. Also for all that cash Adobe stuff is still so buggy and bloated.

I don't think you know what that word means.

phoenix15: Is Iphone X still using corning gorilla glass, or they develop it on their own ?

Also sapphire isn't shatter resistant just more scratch resistant. It is actually more brittle than Gorilla Glass.
