Then with oversampling, you could take all the good none noisy pixels and create one amazing looking 10MP image, so each pixel essentially has 6 pixels to choose from. This would also offer a 6 x lossless zoom at 10mp or a 10 x lossless zoom at 6mp. posted on 16 May 2017, 14:40 0 3. rahul1999 (Posts: 14; Member since: 05 Oct 2012) Completely agree with every word! posted on 16 May 2017, 16:57 0 8. p51d007 (Posts: 474; Member since: 24 Nov 2013) YUP! Instead of increasing the megapixel count, the SIZE of the sensor needs to be increased. I wish designers would stop trying to make smartphones a "FASHION STATEMENT" for the snobbish hollyWEIRD types. Heck, every photo you see of the so called celeb types, they've got a "stylish" phone clutched in their hands.

One of the most anticipated smartphone launches of the year has come and gone. Apple’s iPhone 7 is officially available for purchase online, in retail, and from carriers around the country — and it doesn’t disappoint. The Cupertino company’s newest flagship sports a stellar screen, a versatile A10 Fusion processor, a touch-sensitive home button, upgraded Force Touch capabilities, and an impressive pair of cameras that focus more quickly and take sharper, more colorful images than any iPhone before it. It’s water- and dust-resistant, too, and it ships in configurations with high-gloss finishes and storage capacities up to 256GB.That’s not to say the iPhone 7 is infallible, of course. It omits the 3.5-millimeter audio jack and lacks the pricier, larger iPhone 7 Plus’ dual-sensor camera module. But at $650, it’s a heck of a package.The real question, though, is whether or not the iPhone 7 measures up to … [Read more...] about HTC 10 vs. iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus : Is great audio more important than exceptional cameras?
Without a doubt, one of the highlight features Apple announced in its new iPhones are the serious upgrades to iPhone 7 Plus‘ image and video capture abilities, thanks in part to the device’s new dual-camera system. But one word being batted around that’s used to describe one of the camera’s forthcoming features may have you stumped – it’s a word photographers have a love/hate relationship with, one that has spawned many pronunciation debates, and that word is “bokeh.”What is bokehSo, you might be asking yourself, what exactly is bokeh and why should you care that Apple is hyping it up? The simplest way to describe bokeh is the characteristics and quality of the out-of-focus areas in an image. Many of you have likely seen those incredible portraits where the subject is sharp and in focus, while the background is nicely blurred and maybe had some balls or circles of light and color. … [Read more...] about Here’s what ‘bokeh’ is, and how the iPhone 7 Plus fakes it
Owners of the iPhone 7 Plus’ dual lens camera system will soon be able to add even more lenses to the smartphone. Announced earlier in December as an early Consumer Electronics Show (CES) preview, the Kamerar Zoom Lens gives the iPhone macro, fisheye and telephoto options in two sets of paired lenses.While iPhone users normally have plenty of options, the new dual lens setup on the iPhone 7 Plus’ second lens makes the usual gamut of accessories incompatible. Kamerar is solving that issue with the first dual lens for the dual lens — a pair designed to sit over both built-in lenses, theoretically eliminating any alignment issues.The Kamerar’s case protects the smartphone’s sides and back while creating a small pocket to slide the lenses into. When users want to use just the built-in lenses (perhaps for that faked bokeh effect), the lens slides down for storage. A quick flip up aligns the extra lenses over the original.The kit currently has two options, a … [Read more...] about Smiling camera accessory gives the iPhone 7 Plus its first add-on lenses
The company that brought one of the first attachments lenses for the iPhone 7 Plus’ dual camera system is now giving users of the smartphone six additional lenses swappable with a quick slide. Ztylus this week launched the Switch 6, a six-in-one set of iPhone 7 Plus lenses with an integrated case and the Revolver Lite, a similar case with four lens options.The Switch 6 puts three pairs of lenses on the back of the case inside a sliding track. With a quick slide, the lenses are placed over the smartphone’s built-in cameras to swap out the different options, or you can simply store the lens set while using the integrated camera.The lens pairs include a 180-degree fisheye and 2x telephoto; 10x macro and 20x super macro; 120-degree wide angle and 2x telephoto. Switching between the smartphone’s two cameras allows users to access both lenses in each pair.The lenses slide into a notch at the back of the case that weighs just two ounces and is 12 mm thick.

Last year was an eventful year for Samsung, and that’s putting it mildly. August saw the release of the much-anticipated Galaxy Note 7, which blew the competition out of the water — quite literally, as the phone was soon blacklisted from entire countries and banned from major airlines after it revealed a nasty habit of catching fire in owners’ pockets.Not to worry, though; Samsung is a ginormous company, and it has a second chance to regain consumer trust with the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus. So how does Samsung’s latest flagship stack up against Apple’s latest, plus-sized headset? We lauded the latter device in our iPhone 7 Plus review, but here, we examine how its flagship features compare with those of the Galaxy S8 Plus.

Pretty soon, every phone will have dual rear cameras, whether the phone sells for $100 or $750. One of the most recent devices to jump on the dual-cam trend is the OnePlus 5 , our new favorite midrange phone. But how does it stack up to the dual-camera iPhone 7 Plus ? From a pure numbers standpoint, the $479 OnePlus 5 might seem to have an advantage, as its dual-camera setup is made up of a primary 16-megapixel 24mm f/1.7 camera and a secondary 20-MP 36mm f/2.6 camera with a 2x lossless zoom. Meanwhile, the $769 iPhone 7 Plus features a pair of 13-MP rear cameras: a main camera with a 28mm f/1.8 lens, and secondary camera with a 56mm f/2.6 lens and true 2x optical zoom. However, you probably know by now that megapixel count isn't everything. There are a number of other factors that can have a much bigger impact on picture quality than resolution, such as the iPhone 7 Plus featuring optical-image stabilization on both rear cameras; the OnePlus 5 features … [Read more...] about OnePlus 5 vs. iPhone 7 Plus: Dual Camera Shootout
