Several printers have posted that they can print a very good image regardless of your cameras pixel capabilities...and they were talking frameable wall art. I’ll look for the claims and repost here when Imfind them.I think to some extent, expectations are sometimes governed by what you have become comfortable with. I was used to the iPhone image ‘look’ - less saturation, less sharpening so anything different felt a bit uncomfortable. Also, I look at an image and think, this one is definitely clearer and then when I zoom in on my iPad screen I think, oh, maybe not. My expectations have become so high that I think I perceive phone images (or even photos in general) to be much clearer than they actually are.
When I judge images in our challenges, I never think, gosh, the iPhone images are better than the Android ones because it’s all about how good the composition is and choice of subject. The differences are so minor at the resolution we see the images that there is no difference. If we were to blow up most of our images and put them on the wall then it would be more obvious but then I am sure we would be dissatisfied with both the iPhone and Android phones and realise that a DSLR is what we need. I wonder what Apple did to the iPhone images that they pasted on the big billboards? Would be interesting to know - or when you get up close do you still see the detail.
Only thing I still envy about iPhones is the ability to control shutter speed.
Yes I thought it neatly summed up the situation. I agree I've personally not had problems with Ram/storage, but I can see that people would,Well, I think Google has other problems. Loosing those guys is bad but I think there are more brilliant people in this company.
The bigger problem I see is that they do not listen to people and the market. Nearly all issue named in this article are true (even though I didn't have a single issue with my Pixel).
Being top of the pack means
- enough RAM / storage (64GB works for me but won't for many others)
- more up to date design
- zoom lens (P4 has one but I think there's room to improve)
- battery life (if people should use cloud services and benefit from computational photography you also need the according battery)
- open their top technology (camera) to 3rd party apps. This would improve the ecosystem of apps around photography for people like us and I think we are not allone.
To my opinion Google has to solve some internal problems first. So I think the article describes the problems quite well.
Traitor!Who knows I might even get an iPhone
