  • Again: it's simply impossible a capacitive pen can be used as effectively as a Wacom / N-trig one.

    Otherwise, Microsoft, Samsung and other Wacom / N-trig producers simply wouldn't bother with...

  • Well, I take my X-E1 with me almost everywhere. It doesn't weigh much and it produces significantly better images than even my Nokia 808 (which is also always with me). (And it also has better IQ...

  • The Z3 is equally cr@ppy. Just check out for example the image at (linked from...

  • "I've used Wacom pens with my Macs many times and I still get along fine with capacitive pens. Its obvious you like to push your agenda as hard as you can."

    OK, I let you praise capacitive pens....

  • "My iPhone 5 has horrible distortion at the top and bottom of the frame (in portrait mode)."

    May be a defective unit? The iPhone 5 has quite a decent lens. Actually, it's significantly sharper...

  • The best camera is always the one with you.

  • "Using those with my Mac has not taken away the enjoyment I get from drawing on my iPad."

    Again: even a resistive, old-school pen would be an order of magnitude better, let alone a proper radio...

  • "Guess you have never used a digitizer pen with tilt and pressure sensitivity."

    He surely haven't. Otherwise, he wouldn't call a cr@ppy capacitive pen great. He doesn't know what he's missing.

  • "You can use a stylus with any of the iOS devices."

    A capacitive (read: crappy, unexact, obscuring the screen, awkward), yes. Hell, they're even worse than resistive styli of the pre-iPhone times...

  • "They good indeed to make photo of numberplate of other party involved in accident, but this is about it."

    They do have their place under the Sun.

    - "The best camera is always the one with you"

  • "Honestly, a stylus on a smartphone is a limited niche that maybe 1 in 50 even care about, if that many."

    On a small (conventional PDA / smartphone) screen, maybe. Nevertheless, the Note screens...

  • "no stylus and I doubt we will see one on an iPhone anytime soon."

    And what is worse, the iPad is also unlikely to receive it either - unless there indeed is an iPad Pro in work. Nevertheless, if...

  • *yawn*

    No one stated 4K is better than stills photos shot with decent gear. It's, however, sometimes useful to be able to rely on just shooting an event and grab the best frames afterwards. With...

  • Oh come on... even DPReview stated a year(!) ago that the Note 3 (with its small sensor) records absolutely stunning 4K video, from which it's worth grabbing frames.

  • "And unlike Nikon and Apple Canon makes video cameras--including the excellent G30."

    I know. This is why I strictly spoke about APS-C (crop) digital cameras, not camcorders.

  • "Your comment about the "Canon DSLR" doesn't apply to most modern Canon DSLRs (or Nikon equivalents)."

    Well, in ONE thing he's right: video. All iPhones starting with the iPhone 4 (or all iPads /...

  • 1. Windows RT has nothing to do with Windows Runtime, or WinRT. It's the latter that the tutorial refers to, not the pretty much dead (and, in the tutorial, not very much mentioned) tablet OS,...

  • Sorry - you're wrong. The API is the _same_, unlike with iOS + OS X. Sure the binary is different but, as a programmer, it in no way affects you. It's like "fat" binaries (armv6 and/or armv7 and/or...

  • " . IOS and OS X it's like Windows 8 (or 8.1) and Windows RT they suppose to work together, but they have nothing in common. "

    Wrong. Under Win (Phone) 8.1, it's very easy to develop for the...
