Apple says purple fringing is normal for iPhone 5 camera - Page 3

post #81 of 93
People really have nothing better to do. If they don't like the iPhone, nobody forces them to buy it.

(yes, this guy is actually outraged that Apple is 'infringing upon his freedoms' with their response. No doubt he's taken similar outraged stances against other issues which do actually infringe freedom. No, I doubt it.)


The vicious, kneejerk Apple hatred online is stunning. If I could bottle it up it would have quite the destructive power. Keep in mind:

1- every single camera ever produced will have some type of fringing when pointing a certain way at a strong light source. 
2. I've taken a couple hundred photos with the iPhone 5, many which include the sun, and not once have I experienced this purple fringing. 

But yes, it's quite possible to get fringing when pointing at the sun, etc, which my $1,500 SLR also gets.

But I think the media should run with this, I expect some hard hitting piece from the NYT, Washington Post, and another heartfelt analogy from Tim Cook for this unforgiveable travesty. 

I'm seriously starting to get nauseous and losing all faith in humanity by this spoiled, whiny, entitled, ignorant sense of entitlement and faux outrage. Do people not recall it was only 5 years ago when a touchscreen phone entailed using a shitty stylus to try and get a shitty resistive screen to register your taps after after 9 times? I recall it well. God knows where'd we'd still be if Apple didn't pull us out of the darkness, but now, it's an outrage if they don't single-handedly solve the physics of light which has plagued every camera on the planet in their phone. 

Problem here might be, according to some reports, iP5 has much more haze than iP4s in the same conditions. There might be a perfectly good reason for that - wider aperture, changed lens angle, requirements for thinner case thus thinner camera module dictating different lens design)... but for number of everyday Joe users, the only obvious thing will be that camera is not as good as previous iPhone. I think it is in human nature, not being able to balance good and bad, but accepting good for granted, and focusing on bad.

Purplegate?

You really had SLR 5 years ago?

Because, I'll admit it, I'm a bit of a pixel peeper... and I haven't seen phone camera, or a compact camera (save for RX100) that gives better output than my 7 years old Nikon D70s.

Technology advances, but still not fast enough to substitute for large glass and large sensor.

The above is true. There is not a single DSLR ever made that takes worse photos under all but optimal conditions compared to the iPhone 5. Compacts? Sure. DSLR? Uh, no.

Agreed. But the casual observer can be fooled by post-processing designed to accentuate saturation and other "impressive" character. The benefits of the large lens and bigger sensor are not always apparent if you don't look closely and don't print or display large.

it's effecting your daughter? and what does little to know thought mean?

Can't you remove "Steve would never have" from your 'arguments'?

Well, partially.
