Foxjet: My daily driver is the original OnePlus One on a custom ROM by Sultan on the XDA forums. Sultan has tweaked the camera and the results are quite good considering the hardware. It's adequate for texting and other low res use.

Looking at the demo photos in this first impression review, I am appalled to see that there is NO improvement in the detail and resolution in the OnePlus 5T over what I'm getting on my three year old OnePlus One.

I think that OnePlus needs to rethink their marketing strategy of more megapixels equals better sales. The top rated phone cameras now are 12 megapixels but it's not getting through to the so called engineers at OnePlus. AND...optical image stabilization is a great advantage on a hand held phone camera!

So, OnePlus, Not!

I just replaced onepluse one with onepluse 5 and I see big pq improvement.

It will definitely make sensors much more expensive. But if, say, $100 cost increase on the sensor can reduce lens cost by $200 and can reduce the weight and size by 30%, then it will be worth the development.

Wondering what Canon's rank was in 2015 since the number is actually down 11% in 2016.

noflashplease: The dual camera concept is going to be a depreciated gimmick before Apple brings their own rendition of the concept to market. As it is, the pseudo-bokeh of this Chinese smartphone looks dreadfully artificial and the price seems rather alarming for a phone with a Mediatek processor. All the same, it's interesting to see any new concept in the increasingly dull smartphone market. Maybe the concept will work better in succeeding generations, or maybe it will be dropped? Either way, this seems like a lot of money for Chinese hardware.

"this seems like a lot of money for Chinese hardware"
Are you sure? $300 for 128 gb flash and 4gb ram...

On article Gear of the Year Part 4: Dale's pick - Samsung NX1 (407 comments in total)
In reply to:

iAPX: the best EVF in it's class, but still a new technology called "OVF" offer no visible lag, 100% sRGB and 100% adobeRGB coverage, an incredible gamma curve (nearly that of an human eye), more than 20 IL dynamic range (!!!).

Anyway the NX1 is dead, at a price that is near Full Frame Canon & Nikon DSLR, without this incredible OVF technology, that help framing and shoot in the exact moment. Without lenses. Without any future.


PS: The NX500 based on the same exact sensor, but at a price competitive with the Sony A6000, is an incredibly great camera (as the sony!). This is *NOT* against Samsung or it's sensor, it's against crazy pricing of NX1, and arrogant behavior of Samsung that think it could compete with full frames without any lenses (and even with that, 28MP in APS-C size is a problem in itself in terms of noise and lens real-world resolution, the only thing perfectly resolved is sensor noise ,even at base ISO!).

is it because Samsung stopped official sells channel to make NX1 price higher?

I have to say the "Arca Swiss" plate type of mount is a 50-year-old technology. So it is time to have a new design now, but this new "invention" is not the way to go - other than its weakness, it is still old-mount based.
