    My Grandson and GrandDog at the door of my daughter-in-law and son's house. I didn't take it. My DiL did with an Iphone 7 (I think). If you look closely, you can see the guys are looking at Gramps coming up the walk.

    Nice one, Capt_Spaulding. The ready availability of a cell phone for capturing these spontaneous snaps can yield images with a lot of impact.

    I really need to develop an eye for this sort of thing. My DiL is really very talented. She has a very good feel for what makes an image work. Not much interest that I see in the technical side, but a very good eye.

    Just curious, anyone upgrade their phones?

    I'm personally waiting for a Google Pixel 3 to upgrade to from my Nexus 5x.

    Still pretty happy with the results from my phone. Obviously it's such a high ISO that all details have smudged out, but not bad for a phone from 2015.

    With Flickr changing its terms of use, I've really slowed down in posting to Flickr, but I wanted to show what a big advance in camera software in phones these days in comparison to cameras.

    Compare this shot to the next.

    The lower shot was taken by my phone, a Google Pixel 3 and the top one by my D7000 and edited quickly through Google Photos. Both pleasant shots, and clearly big differences in focal lengths, but I really prefer the phone shot one over the one shot by my DSLR. As much as I like photography, I hate editing. This HDR stacking really shows the power of computational photography that can't be ignored. Imagine a D850 or a D500 using software smarts to all do this in camera? The future is going to be very interesting indeed.

    That AI driven noise reduction in the Pixel 3 sure does wonders in low light, it wasn't rated as the best camera in a phone in 2018 for nothing. Enjoying Seoul?
    If I take a good photo it's not my camera's fault.

    I'm already back. I didn't get to enjoy it all that much honestly, it's way too cold even for someone who's used to NY weather. Plus I didn't have enough time to plan an itinerary beforehand and it was a generic cheap tour my mother found. Food wasn't all that great and there wasn't any time to explore. Lesson learned, no tours next time. Granted I know a lot more about Japan than Korea, so there's that too. Also happened to catch a bad stomach bug for about a day so no, not that enjoyable.

    Have you been to Seoul before?

    That's too bad, haven't been there myself, although I'd like to visit Korea and Japan. I know more about the former than the later, so we are on opposite ends of the scale there. Really enjoyed the other travel photos in your flicker. Okay, enough off topic chat. :)

    The development of the Light Camera https://light.co/camera transfers slowly to mobile phones. for example, look at the Nokia 9 with 5 camera's.

    New sensors !!. ST has introduced a new generation of high-performance proximity and ranging sensors, based on FlightSense™ Time-of-Flight (ToF) technology. This sensor is coming for mobile phones !!

    Further in this year the 5g mobile data connections are about to start. Here in the North of Holland 5g was tested and T-mobile is waiting for the frequency auction this year and after that they are ready to roll out the 5g network with the press of a button.

    In the second half of this year all major cell phone brands are coming with a 5g mobile phone.

    Oppo, the biggest and a major brand in Asia, will announce a mobile phone with 10x zoom without quality loss in the second half of 2019 and has 5g mobiles ready.

    Huawei has it's own operating system ready to launch, but only if it is necessary. If so Android and IOS are getting Asia as a big competitor.

    In short, watch the mobile phone developments this year, they wil be huge.

    Huawei P30 announced, here is the first ToF sensor.

    DPreview:

    The top-of-the-line device comes with a triple-camera setup (Huawei calls it a quad-camera, counting the time-of-flight (ToF) sensor), covering a focal length range that has previously been unheard of on a smartphone.

    Yesterday I used a friend's Samsung phone to take photos for them during a graduation. After using so many higher end phones, I forgot what it's like to have severe, unpredictable shutter lag and how infuriating that must be.

    On a bit of a side note, anyone on the forums happen to pick up a Pixel 3a? My cousin who is an iPhone/iPad/iOS power user picked one up and is really pleasantly surprised by the camera.

    I just bought a Huawei P30 Pro (yes mr Trump a Huawei) and the camera is pretty amazing.
    Always learning.

    Nothing wrong with buying a Huawei phone, my only concern would be with warranty service and having the right LTE bands for it to work in the US.

    Also, I personally prefer stock android and quick updates.

    Anyone end up buying any of the new iPhones?

    Bought the Samsung S10 for a midrange price. Very good camera to have with you, till the sun goes down, but that is the fact with all phones. I think that is no difference with iPhones.

    That is good bang for the buck. I'm likely planning on buying new phones for my parents as well and it might be the S10e or Pixel 3a, depending on what Google announces next week.

    We got a good deal on the Samsung S8 that my parents are using now, around $500 for 2 Samsung S8s with a free 360 degree cam which I traded in for money back again.
