Pixel king sony when updating
A few days ago, Panasonic released their new LUMIX S1H.The S1H has gone to town with new features designed to match most filmmakers needs.Roger Cicala over at Lens Rentals has been doing extensive MTF tests on lenses to figure out the landscape of optical quality in the camera industry.One of his latest findings may be a surprise to many: the best 35mm lens on the market optically is one made by Tamron.There, text specifically refers to "telephoto" images having "dimensions 4656×3496, 4656×3492 or 2328×1748." Pictures that size would presumably come from a 16MP sensor.Of course, that's just one interpretation of this find, and even if there is software in place for this kind of camera hardware, that doesn't necessarily mean it will match what we get from Google's next smartphones.
The official announcement of the D6—which is rumored to feature in-body image stabilization, better video, and more—is now expected on September 4th.
The front IR and rear telephoto sensors are, of course, absent in any current Pixel phone, leading to the hypothesis that this is for the Pixel 4.
We're not entirely certain what the "front IR" sensor is, but it could be for face unlock.
Our friends over at XDA did some digging through the leaked Camera v6.3 APK and found some changes to Super Res Zoom, codenamed internally by Google as "sabre." Compared to v6.2, there are several new items: a "SABRE_UNZOOMED_TELEPHOTO" field and some new camera sensor IDs.
Those camera IDs include "front IR," "front regular," "front wide," "rear regular," and "rear telephoto" sensors.
Landscape photographer Mark Denney recently stumbled across an old folder full of "favorite" images from a few years back.
