Not a day has passed and I find I’m writing about stuff again to underscore just how brutally our (not so) favourite camera manufacturers are going to be violated by what has now all but arrived.
First of all take a look at this earth shattering cutting from MacNN this a.m.:
30% faster image processing! No low pass filter! 24mp sensor! Hold me back and hide my credit card! Quickly!
Now, before your ire and gorge rise too much (mine almost did), take a look at this: Sample images
See what I see? Every shot taken with an iPhone 6. OK, the JPEG engine is a bit harsh and there’s some posterisation in places, but every image is sharp where you want it and the story runs that Apple is going to base their next major ad campaign on these images and there wasn’t a DSLR, or M43 camera in sight.
Back to my comments about Aperture’s demise? I wonder what Photos.app will do with these – especially if Apple could be persuaded to let us get at the RAW images…
Anyway, it’s late and I’m still sitting in Changi airport (Singapore) waiting for my flight. If big camera don’t get it yet, they will. As I said in yesterday’s post, RFN.
