Mobile Photography – Huawei Mate 10 Pro Reviewed – DxOMark

Share

Just published by DxOMark, the Huawei Mate 10 Pro review makes interesting reading. “Featuring a dual-camera setup developed in cooperation with Leica, and which combines a 12Mp RGB with a 20Mp monochrome sensor, it achieves an overall DxOMark Mobile score of 97 points. This ranks the Mate 10 Pro as the currently second-best device we have tested, just a single point behind the Google Pixel 2.”, said Paul Carroll. Having explored this handset myself at a recent press event I can confirm that it was incredibly pleasing and I just love the Leica optics that Huawei install on their handsets.

The DxO ONE now supports Multi-Camera Facebook Live and Time-Lapse features as well as new accessories and an Early Access Program for Android

Share

DxO, a key player in digital image technologies, announced a major update to the DxO ONE, its miniaturized and connected professional-quality camera for smartphones and tablets. Available immediately and free of charge, version 3.0 of the DxO ONE iOS app offers the first pro-quality multi-camera solution for Facebook Live and a new time-lapse option featuring exclusive Auto Ramping technology. The DxO ONE ecosystem of accessories now includes an external Battery Pack that doubles the camera’s battery life as well as a Cable Back Door for the device’s waterproof case, allowing you to use the DxO ONE outside or even underwater for extended periods.

“While smartphones have made significant progress in terms of image quality, they don’t come close to the photos and videos a real camera like the DxO ONE can offer. Most importantly, you have to hold them in your hand, and you constantly need them for other things, like making calls, sending messages, or checking your social networks,” explains Jérôme Ménière, DxO’s CEO and founder. “The DxO ONE is the first photo and video camera designed to operate as both a handheld and remote device. It’s even able to function remotely over a long period of time — for example, you can use it outside to record a time-lapse or Facebook Live video. Because it works in perfect harmony with your smartphone, it is the ideal photo and video assistant for this device.”

Mobile Photography – Samsung Galaxy Note 8 – ‘Best Smartphone for Zoom’

Share

DxOMark, is the trusted industry standard for camera and lens image quality measurements and ratings. TheAppWhisperer has as intense association with this company and they have just published their latest test results on the Samsung Galaxy Note 8. Paul Carroll the writer for this review explains that the “Note 8 becomes the new joint leader for smartphone image quality alongside Apple’s iPhone 8 Plus. A phenomenal photo sub-score that breaks new ground as the first smartphone to hit 100 points makes the Note 8 the current class-leader for stills, thanks to excellent zoom quality, good noise reduction and detail preservation, as well as fast and accurate autofocus. The Note 8 doesn’t quite match the same heights for video, where its sub-score of 84 is a little behind the best performers, such as the Google Pixel with 91 points, or the iPhone 8 Plus and the HTC U11, both with 89. It’s still a very capable device for video, however, with its key strengths being good exposure with fast convergence, fast and stable autofocus, as well as good noise reduction, white balance, and color rendering”. This result puts the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 on a par with the iPhone 8 Plus – very interesting, to read more, go here.

Mobile Photography – WaterField Designs iPhone Compact Case Review

Share

Like many mobile photographers I have been searching for an androgynous, inconspicuous, compact case to carry my iPhone and the various lenses, tripods, cables, I have acquired, without being too large, for some time. Finally, I have found it! This week Waterfield Designs, based in San Francisco, United States, kindly sent me their brand new iPhone compact case in premium full grain leather to review. This case has a super tight grain and resists moisture to a good degree, the waterproof zipper proves its worth. This case is also available in vegan 1050 Denier Ballistic Nylon, if you prefer, no animal products are used in this version at all, even the label is woven instead of traditional leather.

This small longitudinal case fulfils my mobile photography needs. It can carry one large device, iPhone Plus size or smaller, along with four small lenses, the adjustable dividers ensure valuables are held securely. The interior is completely soft-lined and the body is encapsulated in dense foam for additional protection. There’s a pocket for an external battery supply (small one) as well as a zippered mesh pocket for other small items. On the base of the case there are expandable bands for securing a mini tripod. There is also an adjustable shoulder strap that I personally prefer to use but there are also loops on the back of the case, if you prefer to hook it onto a belt, if you’re wearing trousers.

The premium leather version of this case retails for $129. The black ballistic nylon case is $99. If you’re in the market for a small iPhone photography case, this one is worthy of consideration. Take a look at the video below. To find out more, go here.

Apple iPhone 8 Reviewed – DxOMark

Share

Just published by David Cardinal for DxO Mark the Apple iPhone 8 review makes interesting reading. The Apple iPhone 8 is the highest-performing single-camera smartphone we have tested with our new protocols, with an impressive Overall score of 92. Despite having a smaller 1/2.8-inch sensor, it edges out our previous top scorers, the HTC U11 and the Google Pixel. This demonstrates how much Apple has been able to accomplish with the hardware and software that complement the sensor and are used for image processing. The iPhone 8 also provides major improvements over the iPhone 7 in a number of areas, including capturing HDR images, as well as flash performance., said Cardinal.
