    People saying that phone cameras will rival full-frame SLR photos is just smoking too much ganja.  

    Hmmm, sounds like history repeats itself... I think it was VP of DEC computers (now defunct) that said "I can't see any reason for a personal computer in the home." And it was Bill Gates who said "I can't see any reason why anyone would need more than 640K of RAM."

    Perhaps by the time the next iPhone is announced, the iPhone 6 might actually be available in stores.

Add to this the extremely small size of the camera lens and the combination doesn't come close to a DSLR. 


     

    you didn't listen to the podcast. he and moltz expressed the same thoughts regarding physics. he was only relaying the rumor he heard.

    Almost exactly two months. Strange it took so long.

    A few robots have dual camera systems:

    1000

    1000

    It allows the same depth perception that people have. Cameras almost always have a single lens but they don't mimic how people see things. This move could in fact take photography beyond DSLR for the simple reason that they can create a 3D scene. Because of the price of lenses and sensors on standard cameras, it's less feasible there on a wide scale. If you could then take that data and reproduce it in 3D, it would look much more tangible than a standard flat photograph. This might be the route Samsung wants to go down with their VR glasses.

    It can be recreated without glasses though. Perhaps a retina display can manage it somehow by using alternating lines to appeal to each eye.

    The lenses would have to be spaced further away than that to create a suitable 3D image plus, if 1 camera is macro and the other is telephoto, one will be out of focus so they couldn't both be used at at the same time.

    Why? Insects seem to manage.

    It's a good point that 2-lens and two-sensor 3-D is more possible with phone-sized components. Even GoPros are too large for medium-distance 3-D, and the dual camera kits often mount one camera upside down to bring the lenses closer together. Distance to the subject determines the distance you want between the lenses. An adjustable interaxial is the reason many 3-D rigs using two cameras are preferred for pro work.

    Finally, synthesized 3-D is not generally as good as that shot with two sensors. "Natural" is better once again.

    The only thing that would've made me purchace a new iPhone this year would be a dramatically new camera. No camera, no sale, so I'll stick with my 5 one more year. This sounds promising.

    I can imagine this clearly. DSLR technology is clearly at a dead end. All of the improvements that befall sensors will NOT be made to DSLR (or ILC). Lets be real, large sensors will improve as well. I full expect phone cameras to match say my Canon 6D, but by that time ill have a 6D mark III or something along those lines.

    Just...nothing. The word just is not just used as an adverb. I feel that the #6 definition is justly accurate. ;)

     

     

    JUST (adjective)

     

    1.

    guided by truth, reason, justice, and fairness:

    We hope to be just in our understanding of such difficult situations.




    2.

    done or made according to principle; equitable; proper:

    a just reply.




    3.

    based on right; rightful; lawful:

    a just claim.




    4.

    in keeping with truth or fact; true; correct:

    a just analysis.




    5.

    given or awarded rightly; deserved, as a sentence, punishment, orreward:

    a just penalty.




    6.

    in accordance with standards or requirements; proper or right:

    just proportions.




    7.

    (especially in Biblical use) righteous.

    Just get rid of the abomination that is the protruding lens.




    I hope they keep it. No, make it protrude even more. It's not like people whine about DSLRs and their protruding lenses.

    And how many people carry their DSLR around in their trouser pockets?

    I rest my case.
