    JurijTurnsek got a reaction from Emanuel in Let's discuss computational photography?   
    Unless Apple implements a ToF sensor in the front, they are just doing "smart/zone" bracketing, which is wholly in the Android domain of possibility. None of the discussed samples feature fast movement, just landscapes and portraits and Dpreview is not all that impressed at the pixel level.
    Hopefully, Android OEMs push for bigger sensors at the same time, since apple is very much afraid of thicker phones. Bracketing, fast readout and bigger sensors would be really push mobile photography further.

    I don't want my face enhanced in any way.
    I fail to see how this is any better that super quick HDR with more merged shots as the processing power increases (with "beautification" applied at the end? That Apple presentation photo is a very good example at how they can blow up any little feature to seem like a whole new world.
    Someone please tell me who decides what the hell is "the best part of a photo"?

    Read it and weep, fanboy. Looks like Apple is also omitting crucial information (although, the new generation should be less limited).
    Edit: Apparently, you can record front and rear cameras at the same time on Android for 3 years now: https://smartfilming.blog/2018/04/17/12-recording-video-with-both-front-and-rear-cameras-simultaneously-on-android/

    The small hole is actually to reduce the amount of material required, thus saving 0.23 cents/unit on manufacturing costs. It's the compromise they made in order to afford the 24p license.

    JurijTurnsek got a reaction from Adam Kuźniar in Sony a6100 and a6600 Announcement   
    A6600 + 16-55 2.8 = $2900
    A7III + Tamron 28-75 2.8 = $3000 or something like that and you get a better sensor and lens.
    One way they could redeem themselves a tiny bit is to offer a better codec as a FW update after the A7SIII is released (as was the case for A6000).

    With 6K of resolution to work with, EIS should be easily achievable with a small crop. However, it is 2019 and 30p is still cropped with no EIS at all in a fucking flagship.

    JurijTurnsek reacted to sanveer in Sony & Samsung 48MP sensors arrived...   
    Samsung seems to have Finally revealed details of its latest 108MP sensor. The Pixel size is 0.8um (luckily), so the sensor is a 1/1.33" sensor, and it also seems to have some tricks for better lowlight photography including atleast dual ISO. I am guessing Samsung will disclose more details of the sensor in installments and hopefully we see a lot of newer sensor technologies in this.
     
    "In bright environments, the Smart-ISO, a mechanism that intelligently selects the level of amplifier gains according to the illumination of the environment for optimal light-to-electric signal conversion, switches to a low ISO to improve pixel saturation and produce vivid photographs. The mechanism uses a high ISO in darker settings that helps reduce noise, resulting in clearer pictures."
     
    It also does 6k video (I was hoping it does 8k, but most systems may not be able to process that much data).
    "For advanced filming, the HMX supports video recording without losses in field-of-view at resolutions up to 6K (6016 x 3384) 30-frames-per-second (fps)."

    Current info is that the pixel size is 0.61um, so the sensor size for the 108MP SKU is 1/1.7"

    JurijTurnsek reacted to frontfocus in Panasonic S1R Pixel Shift beats Fuji GFX 100   
    To be honest, thinking about it it shows how excellent the GF lenses are. The panasonic not only is a 188MP image, it's a a 188MP RGB image with every pixel having all the information for red, green and blue. That the Fuji is as close as it is, is a statement to it's quality. 
    If the rumors are true and the GFX gets multi shot as well, I can't imagine what the quality will be like. Dpreview probably has to reprint it's target at a higher resolution 😄

    Well good for them. Now they might want to put those sensors into actual freaking cameras so it can be good for us! 
    Time has been long. A7SIII and A6700 are way overdue.
    There is an event with new Sony camera announcement confirmed for July 17, let’s see.
    Also on July 11 sigma will  announce some specific Sony FE lens including a 35mm 1.2 and a 14-24 2.8. Exciting.

    LG G8S promises seamless zooming using all three of it's camera modules, with no discernible switch between them. No video sample yet, but this an important leap for smartphone tech. Now, if only every module had that 48mps sensor, that would sweeten the deal even more.

    JurijTurnsek reacted to webrunner5 in The strong ARM of the law - Leica and DJI may be swept up in Trump's blacklisting war, as Huawei suppliers melt away under pressure   
    I think the whole world needs to wake up and understand depending pretty much on China to make their stuff is a huge mistake. I am not talking as a personal insult to China. I respect what they have done. But the whole damn world is putting their eggs in one basket here. Nations are loosing their national identity, people out of work. This is leading to a F ing total disaster. You can't have one country making everything and the rest just going belly up, and not abide by the rules.
    That is the trouble with this crap. Trump is just a small ass piece of all of this. Britain is just about to be a nobody country soon. Other European countries are nearly in a worse shape. This is all some serious shit. South America is going to shit also. It Ain't going to get better keeping it the way it is. This has no good end without some big ass change. A hell of a lot of countries are to blame for letting this crap happen.

    JurijTurnsek got a reaction from Kisaha in Huawei P30 Pro may be the last, as Google suspends business with Chinese smartphone manufacturer   
    There must a Ferengi Rule of Acquisition that goes something like "nothing is for free"? USA outsourced all the manufacturing to China, because it was cheaper, while their loose regulations worked their workers to death and heavily polluted their environment. This was a strictly a business decision (fueled by capitalistic reasoning) and they full well knew that their IP is or could get stolen. Their businesses choose to do that (still do).
    Now that China has enough educated and talented engineers who are surpassing their USA counterparts, USA is trying to harm them back. Looks like DJI is the next target:

    Apple and Google phones don't real generate random numbers, which are necessary for secure encryption. Government backdoor right there.
    I am sure these US bluechip companies are thrilled at the empty order book thanks to Donald Tit.
    Intel for example is set to lose potentially billions of dollars over next few years in lost Chinese orders.
    That Trump has so many people believing in his business skills is a neat trick. Unravelling the entire US economy is his other lesser known neat trick and this is the start of it.
    Huawei can afford to lose Qualcomm as can other companies. Snapdragon is replaced by Kirin 980 already in the P30 Pro and many other handsets and I can personally vouch for how fast it is. However, if the Chinese wanted to withdraw a few services.... Let's say "manufacturing"... Where does that leave important US tech giants like Apple and Google? What if Foxconn closed the order books on those companies? And on RED?
    A trade war is like any other war. Nobody wins.
