Technology can change processes or quality of parameters, but it can't change ideas ... future is comming a very fast ... propably R.U.R. wasn't only science fiction play ...

On Apple patents bayonet mount for mobile devices post (68 comments in total)

I expected a second camera with bigger sensor (like MFT / Pentax K size) + cover + extender hood with bayonet + cover of bayonet + lens (just compact lenses have definitely sense) ... Primarily for devices like iPad ... nobody has a camera with such a display with posibility to run Photoshop on the same device !!!

Who will make first lens with APS-C, FF and MF senzor with Wi-Fi connection ? Ricoh GXR is without ... will be a new with Wi-Fi and usable on tablets with high resolution or we would expect any better connection? Will make anyone tablet which will expect a similar external camera system and will make some preparation for connection and able to mount some grip for better keeping in the hands? OK, Samsung has similar system with interchangable lens ... it would be better with pure Android 4.4 and better manual control ...

On Panasonic announces Leica DG Nocticron 42.5mm F1.2 (again) news story (190 comments in total)
In reply to:

Hongze: What the heck is "light gathering capability"? I am so confused by the formula someone come up with - "42.5/1.2 = 85/2.4 = 35.4mm". Is a 1.2 lens 1.2 regardless of their focal length? If two lenses can project the same amount of light to per square inch/cm of sensor, do they have the same "light gathering capability"?

Please help me to make sense the "42.5/1.2 = 85/2.4".

Thanks,
Hz

It depends on the angle of view ... You can use 42.5/1.2 lens in the less light and You can still take pictures by hand than with 85/2.4 lens ... :)

I think that Sakar had a few technical innovation, but Nikon stopped its by lawsuit in the style of Apple

In this case, the technical innovation - better and cheap Android Camera ... and it is nonsense to do with another new lens mount ... and What is Nikon doing ... They prevent someone to do cameras better and slowing technological development ... but there is Samsung Galaxy NX ... :)

if we can prepare function like composed macro picture from a few expositions then it would be interesting ... because no one it doesn't make similar sw in the camera , only there are macro profesionals with specialized hw+sw.

OK, some tripod would be necessary for it :)

Treeshade: To help lazy readers:

By R Butler:
The GR, X100S, Coolpix A, Sigma DPMs and possibly the Canon G1X would fall into a more specialist class, but we're probably not going to have a chance to cover those, this time 'round.

By Andy Westlake:
We've reviewed most of those cameras in detail. The only ones missing are the Sigma DP Merrills (which we struggle to recommend for most users, as they're highly reliant on Sigma Photo Pro for Raw conversion, which can produce great output but is painfully slow and clunky), and the Leica X2, which is pretty much eclipsed by the X100S.

If you're buying in this class, I'd say the choice looks pretty simple. Pick whether you want a 35mm-equiv or 28mm-equiv lens. If 28mm, buy the GR, unless you have Nikon accessories which you can (and will) use with the Coolpix A. If 35mm, buy the X100S, unless you have a really good reason to pick the RX1.

Sony's additional cameras for smartphones will have follower with APS-C ... why not Google with ... ?

Sigma DP Merrills can be a good change for film photographers ... :)
In the image quality is a first of ... maybe a new Ricoh GXR will come ... with built wi-fi, GPS and Android in the range APS-C to MF or it will make Google with RAW format in the Android:)

Or some new accesories for Wacom: http://cintiqcompanion.wacom.com/en/

Artistico: I wonder when Nokia will realise that they have to go Android to get more sales, though. The main reason they are losing market shares is first hanging onto the archaic Symbian platform and then going Windows Mobile at a time when all the other major players were under the Android umbrella or iOS. Result: No one bothers making apps for Windows Mobile because the market is too small to be worth the effort. In this day and age, it doesn't matter how good your phone's camera is if you cannot get the apps you are used to on your new phone.

I'd be happy to get a Nokia again, as I really like their cameras and having one would be like bringing a cheapish compact everywhere - but only if they switch to Android. Otherwise it's too much of a compromise for me, and for many others.

Microsoft are offering clouds on the Linux, it means that MS is in the time changes ... if WP won't have succes then MS can make SW for Android and iOS for their server solutions (and really they do it) and it can contain mobile devices with a good camera system (during the time on the Android which is for MS profitable)

for good image quality does not make sense to use maximum zoom - that's what it in reality is, about technology for 5MPix result ...
