50 down-sampled with a divisor of 9 (3*3) will give each resulting pixel a below average noise of 3*3 pixels.
And give a 5.5 Mpix image, more than enough for most.
The only thing this baby needs...
Tried WP8.1. Horrible lack of basic functionality starting from basic copy/paste functions down to having a usable browser on the device (no, IE sucks for power users). And MS is not going to...
The deal is almost finished and MS mobile phone unit (ex-Nokia) _IS_ shipping 3 Android phones in Asia.
Yes, this is a huge phone! The screen is nice, but the size for a fully grown man like myself (6') is still too big to be lugged around daily.
Unfortunately, I agree.
WP is an ecosystem wasteland. It's not a smartphone system, it's a feature phone system, almost as good as Symbian was at it's best.
A good camera does not a smartphone...
They sold all the people, tech & know how to MS as well with the phone unit.
All they have left is some tech patents, and they'd rather just license those.
You may not have noted, but Nokia got...
They sold all the related people, tech & know how to MS along with the phone unit.
All they have left on the imaging side is some tech patents, and they'd rather just license those.
You may not...
Nikon this, Nikon that. Just like a sub-par result producing cameras or are you paid to astroturf?
I have had tons of cameras, and shoot most of my "accidental" photos now on my main...
Considering that smartphones have already killed Canon's pocket camera sales, they should perhaps view their business differently.
I can't understand how slow and tired Canon has become.
It may shoot 4K, but the chip+optics is great if it resolves more than 600 lines vertical.
So much for specsmanship...
in 1080 resolution only 50i / 60 i video.
This is 2014, Nikon.
Sony will eat those for lunch. The rest will go to Fuji and Canon at the super-zoom range.
Consumer. Which part of that word did you not understand.
Consumer <> Pro.
Pro market will be alive and fragrant in 10, 100 years.
Consumer market changes much faster.
They could solve this by offering GREAT video.
But all of them, including Canon and Sony, have been trying to micro-segment and also protect their precious pro-video segment.
Very good for social media low-res sharing photos and for a camera that is always on you. Unlike that RX100 or that Canon 5d MK II.
Nice, but when it it barely resolves 600 lines over the whole vertical screen area, where you get the stabilization line space from?
Yes, you can stabilize, but you'll be throwing away resolving...
And no memory card slot.
And no USB expansion.
And no way to easily move to/from the iPad documents of all kinds (Apple wants to sell everything via their own store, everything else is done more...
- draw over other apps
- Read my phone status & identity
- Retrieve running apps
= NO THANKS.
It's a PHOTO editor.
Should not be "SPY on you and read everything you do" app.
They did buy 8500 design patents. Only utility patents were NOT sold, but non-exclusively licensed.
Nokia has NOTHING left in phone business: people, factories, designers, contacts, brands,...
Preview: "you won't be able to view your output in its full high resolution glory"
Yes you can.
The camera is VERY unlikely to resolve even 720 lines.
So even HD ready display would be more...
Six things to expect:
1. All existing WP licensees (except for a couple of small Chinese) will exit WP, leaving MS alone
2. People will grow doubtful towards Nokia devices, now that they are MS...
