    Too bad no fancy iPhone apps will ever give you - true 4K video - dual camera mode - 16 / 41 Mpixels - Xenon flash - RAW stills (at least as of iOS8) The iPhone 6+ is only better than the Note 4 in ...
  • 1. The GX7 and EM-10 are still more pricey if you do shop around.

    2. This is why it's in DPReview's own midrange roundup: ...

  • The A5100 is mid-range. This is why it's in DPReview's own midrange roundup: http://www.dpreview.com/articles/6428641287/mid-range-mirrorless-camera-roundup/4

  • Just keep in mind that the A3000 sensor isn't as good as that of Sony's 16 and 24 Mpixel sensors. It's about 0.7EV noisier.

    That is, don't expect miracles from the A3000.

  • No point in trying to emulate shallow FoV. The results will be sometimes dreadful, as has been shown by the M8.

  • No point in trying to emulate shallow DoF. The results will be sometimes dreadful, as has been shown by the M8.

  • "Sorry I don't remember the name of the application doing that to iPhone jpegs and it was back a few years, so 2011 or 12."

    645 Pro and some other apps too.

  • Yup, it's pretty pathetic they still have no RAW support in the new iOS8 API...

  • Just don't forget that even JPEG's (not counting in messed-up WB) exported by other apps can be of a much higher-quality source for later PP than OOC JPEG's produced by the stock Camera app.

    As...

  • "When will the Galaxy S4, aka the most common android smartphone, get android 5.0 /L?"

    Given that Samsung are already actively testing Lollipop for the S4 (see...

  • Anyone that would like to try FV-5 on the pre-Lollipop Samsung Note 4: don't do it.

    While the best third-party apps like Snap Camera HDR support shutter speeds of as low as 1/8s, the minimal speed...

  • "Unfortunately there's also a lot more noise :)"

    The more the noise, the better. It shows the phone processes the results less (or not at all). Let's not forget that in-phone JPEG conversion is...

  • "On the other hand, stock JPEG processing on smartphones is often borderline horrible, specially from OEMs that have little to no imaging experience, so this could help on phones that tend to be...

  • Well, you still may be missing a lot of photo opportunities. Just a quick comparison with 0 EV exp. comp. on both cameras, metering for the center, the X-E1 shooting at 18mm f/5.6 (sweet spot at ...
  • Nevertheless, most Lollipop phones will also offer RAW via the standard Google API.
  • Replied in Nice!....
    Just don't forget that it isn't true frame-stitcher HDR, just exposing for the highlights (by using full-sensor metering) and applying very strong shadow pulling. That is, it offers nothing one ...
  • Rule of thumb in Apple land Nr. 1.: never ever upgrade to the last major iOS release on any "old" device because - it'll intentionally cripple your device to force you to get a newer model - and ...
  • Replied in Nice!....
    It's hard not to love it. It's a great phone in every respect, with an acceptable camera even now (in pre-Lollipop times). Camera-wise, it's a definitely better choice than an iPhone6 / 6+ unless ...
  • Currently, only Snap is worth using for low-light shooting - other apps can't go down to 1/8s. The main difference between it and the stock app is that it's configurable WRT noise reduction and ...
  • Yup, I've tested Camera FV-5 too. It has quite a few features painfully missing from other top apps. For example, both Open Camera and Snap Camera HDR lack exposure bracketing, PNG output and some ...
