In five years time Apple will put this in their iPhones and claim they invented it.

A good five minutes in the microwave oven solves it for me.

Could do with some beautifying of your writer's text. "The below screenshot..."? The screenshot below.

They get very anal about it, do they?

Again, why do you have to introduce language like this? Another less than professional story by DPReview.

"Everything is fine with it except that it's bull****."

Do we really need language like this in an article on photography? It just makes the author seem very unprofessional.

Indeed, I can't even quote it because your forum doesn't allow swear words. How hypocritical.

Amazing the junk that is produced... and the people who will buy into it...

I'd like a plain camera strap in the style of those that come as standard on Canon DSLRs. They don't seem to exist. Straps are either over-complicated things with interchangeable parts or are brightly coloured patterned things.

Simple. Black (or a solid colour). Good quality that will last for years. That's all I ask for.

If it had a zoomable lens then I'd be interested. But fixed 24mm (equiv) then not that interesting.

Having seen exposures made over ten years, I think the idea is ridiculous. Even the ten year images are hard to decipher, never mind 100 or 1000 years.

Better yet would be to take a snap every 3 months for 100 years. Somewhere in the world I guess there are cameras doing just that right now...

RedFox88: People still print?! 🤔😲

Some of us still do it in a darkroom.

OK - I know - too much information.

wfb-foto: I wonder what would happen if a drone hit the inlet of a turbine. Would it burst?

I suspect you wouldn't be able to fly the done again. It'd have to be sent back to DJI for repair...

I think I might modify this idea if the author hasn't patented it.

Print the resolution the camera is currently using so I can put it in the hot-shoe so I don't forget what resolution I'm shooting at. Perhaps it should also say "raw" or "jpg" too.

Imager of: And the whole phone costs around $100 to make.
This is why they’re a trillion dollar company people. Nothing but pure greed! 🤨

Don't forget the yearly fee for developers having a "store" . Yet the fee is a one-off payment and far less to have a Google Play merchant account.

I hope Apple implode one day - and that day can't come soon enough.

Wah wah wah - my display is crap!

Apple is the Devil's work. I should know - I have both Apple and Android devices.

The sooner Apple go under, the better for everyone. Prices of all these devices will then fall.

However, we're still in the post-Jobs honeymoon period.

Whoopie do. What about making it possible to post to Instagram from a desktop machine? Far more useful. The current situation is ridiculous because I can actually post from a desktop by putting my browser into developer mode.

But that's what you get from Facebook. Idiocy.

On article Profoto teases something big that's small (59 comments in total)

The new fad - teasing videos or statement releases by companies.

I really don't see the point. However, it's following the same pattern as politicians who now release to the media speeches they'll make several days in advance.

The world has gone mad.

On article Pixelmator Pro update adds Light Leak effect and more (116 comments in total)
In reply to:

lambert4: For all the animosity in these comments there are 100’s of influencers and so ial media celebrities making $100k posting similar images. It matters less what we think and more what gets clicks on Instagram.

I had the seals replaced on my old OM a few years back, specifically to eliminate this issue. Who knew I had the futuristic OM Pro

"influencers". Where is the rolling eyes emoticon when you need it.

On article Nokia allegedly working on 5-camera smartphone (136 comments in total)

I'm waiting for one with 20 cameras. Four front cameras tele/wide for stereo selfies with depth effects. Four side cameras - one for each edge of the device - in case I miss something. Twelve rear cameras including: IR, Tele, Super-Tele, Wide, Super-Wide, B&W low-light, UV, Standard, large-pixel low-res, ultra-high res.

That should just about cover it.

On article Sony launches new line of rugged SD memory cards (338 comments in total)
In reply to:

voronspb: Quite a strange move from Sony. IMHO all MicroSD cards are already waterproof and drop-proof up to 15 km (if you can find it afterwards). Also such cards may be considered as bent-proof, because one cannot grip it tightly enough to bend.

But they aren't fool-proof.

In reply to:

backayonder: I am sure they are all drop proof from a great height. They are that light they would just float to the ground like an autumn leaf.

Maybe thinking of places with no atmosphere - like the Moon.

In that case what would be the maximum height they'd be certified for? Obviously, if dropped from a great enough height they would produce a small crater and vaporise...
