Samsung S20 Ultra ... thoughts? - Klaus - 02-14-2020
As some may have noticed I'm fairly open to computational support in cameras - which isn't all that new when thinking of auto-correction.
Now looking at the S20 Ultra I'm starting to wonder whether this is already "good enough" for me to a certain degree at least. Ok, that ultra-wide camera is probably still meh but the overall package is close.
At least one of the sensors isn't that small anymore either (1/1.3").

Sure, the IQ may be good enough for some applications, but the handling is blääää... Just touch and sweep controls is like standing in mud (I hate cell phones; have one just because I must). Also, a “camera” without a viewfinder is no camera. For me this is a boring thing, photography should be fun.
Maybe i am a dinosaur or at least a mammoth.

Same for me, Goran. Sure I'm another dinosaur.

Similar here. I actually welcome software contribution to photography development. It is great today we have a solid camera in a phone. Super useful.
However, photography is a lot more about how to aim, follow subject, adjust relevant settings, responsiveness, etc... I am far from one who believes it is big stuff that cuts it, but camera needs to be as much as possible part of photographer. And of course a viewfinder plays a crucial role. Phone is simply something else than a camera as such.
So probablya a dinosaurus too. ;-)

Same here ....... only my fixed focus meniscus eyes require several pairs of glasses of see the damned thing.

Ha! For a while I thought, I was the only dinosaur left here... but now it feels like extinction is not around the corner, yet

Hopefully it's still early Cretaceous for all of us...

There was a documentary called "Walking with dinosaurs" - that's how I feel now. ;-)

Ugh... There is no doubt I'm also part of the photographius archaicus endangered species
