williams359: Are they weather sealed ?

Are you planning to use flash lights in the rain or in snow? I know no use case for such situation.

Roddy McLean: No one here seems to mention the glaringly obvious absence of physical controls on the cameras left shoulder...... In my view that should have been a priority for Sony to resolve. Please dont tell me that you are all happy with the crumby menu system currently in use.

SONY PLEASE TAKE A LOOK AT A FUJIFILM XT2

I love fuji controls also. Sony still has a point-and-shoot mind with one hand (with lots of menus), but I feel more comfortable in using two hands at the same time, and it's much quicker.

I agree that it should have some controls on the left side

Charlie Jin: I hope that an APS-C version of a7r3 be available soon. 40+ M resolutio is too much overkill for me. All the features and performances but less resolution (less than 30M) - and of course, smaller body and smaller lenses.

Hi, Alan, thanks for your reply. Does It also mean that you can't see what needs to be added to the A7RII and III's upgraded features are meaningless to you ? And if I buy A7R, you mean, you would rather recommend 2 than 3 ?

iPhone 7, 8, X with iOS 11 can read NFC.

And with iPhone (7 and later) it shouldn't be cumbersome.

"Connectivity
The a7R III comes with Wi-Fi with NFC and Bluetooth connectivity for pairing with compatible smartphones and Sony's PlayMemories app. In practice, it works very well - though the connection process can be a bit cumbersome at first with an iPhone, NFC works wonderfully for quick pairing with Android devices."

Charlie Jin: Best display!

You never see the pictures you took from your phone, in others’ phone, but only in your phone. So it is like self-hypnosis... that is...self-photopnosis

That is not what he meant. You can share the “bits” of the jpg file, but you cannot share “how it will look in your/other” devices. Suppose you have the iPhone X and you have a picture that looks gorgeous in your iPhone X. Can you share that look with the people who have other devices (and vice virsa) ?

For the protection of the gangsters’ right, it should be illegal to put cheap DSLRs, such as C*, N*, S* brands, into this backpack. ;-)

My question is, if you are going to use all those equipments and accessaries, why you have to use lesser smartphone cameras than, say, Sony RX100 or better real cameras. I can understand the videography using “only” smartphone (since that is the only thing you have at the moment). And I believe, RX100 is much cheaper than iPhone X.

UllerellU: I stay with my RX100, I'm sorry, the dynamic range, color depth and performance in low light. I wear it 24 hours a day 7 days a week, nothing escapes me and I can take decent pictures.

Mobile lovers, nothing to say, anything serves to take photographs, now, that they want to compare it with the quality of a reflex, I think a little surrealist.

Come when we want to make a competition to photograph the stamens of a flower (macro lens), or a full cathedral or avenue (lens 10-18mm) etc etc.

It is an irony that the phone camera review here is actually for the people who don’t even know the existance of dpreview. So, it should be considered for photographers as, “When you don’t have any camera around you, except your smartphone...”

Was it an intended irony to put the Sony brand SD card into the Canon’s new camera in the picture above? Especially considering that Other brand’s SD cards are More popular (Samsung, SanDisk, etc...)

Photato: Great for the price and wonderfull for the size but no perfect. The 22 has a pronounced vignetting, has an average CA performance and the bokeh is nothing to write home about.

The lens will have to be twice bigger in order to satisfy your requirements...

Sangster: It's hard to get passionate about phone camera photography. Besides the advantage of convenience I find the whole process just isn't very engaging.

Camera+ is working? It so buggy that most of the time it didn’t work. So, I have not used it for quite a while (I removed it). And I heard that it isn’t working on iOS 11...

momo: I tested Halide on my iPhone 7 Plus. The depth mode takes about 2-3 seconds to snap a picture. There is no difference between Apple's native camera app and Halide's depth mode. Maybe I am getting it all wrong but I do not see any value in using this app at all. I hope I will get my money back.

But iphone 7 plus camera’s portrait mode also takes a couple of seconds to get the depth map... To me, iPhone 7 plus camera’s portrait mode and Focos app makes some great results. I’m not sure what I can get more from Halide... maybe full manual control and RAW ? I wish we had a demo version... If it is working well on iPhone 7 plus, I will definitely buy it.

englishman: The new iPhone X has an incredible camera and it definitely should be talked about on a photography website. It's new, it's innovative, and the iPhone camera is the most popular camera in the world AND it's the camera most folks will have at the moment it's needed. It would be a major omission and disappointment if I couldn't read about the iPhone's newest camera here on DP Review. Not only that, it can shoot 4K video at 60fps . . . that's freaking out of this world.

If you say such things to the photographers here in this forum, you are actually insulting them, and it will have a negative effect.
