    So I'm on the boat & in the buffet getting the GF and I food. Of course, we got there later than I'd like so all the Sears where you can see the stage are taken.

    Oh well, we'll still have a good time. It is an older crowd, as expected, and we're in the top 5% best dressed, and the only color coordinated pair I've seen so far.

    I'm out...

    Ok, so people are not all that happy with Sony, what do you think about Huawei Mate S ? For the right price I'm quite interested. Although Honor 7 seems a better phone. I really like the Huaweis, I think they produce good phones, only thing I don't like is UI but well, you have Nova launcher :D

    You don't like EMUI 3.x? It makes Windows 10 a shame. All EMUI apps are consistent and beautifully functional.

    It was...OK. Food was so-so, drinks was so-so, Freddie was skinnier than I expected and used a ton of fillers. But it picked up at the end when he sang my two favorites.

    The zoom on the Z3 is just horrid in SA mode. Audio was on point though. Sometimes I feel like I need a PhD to coax the best from this camera.

    Here's a shot of lady liberty.

    Maybe I need to learn how to take better pictures first.

    And a 4000mAh battery?
    The Mi Note got 7 hours SOT and the Note Pro got 3.5 hours with the same battery and just the difference being 1080p versus qHD screen.

    You've had your Z3 for a year abouts anyways, so no good upgrade was coming from them during this time.

    As always, I'm indifferent for their announcement today. If taken individually, all the phones from the Z2 onwards are very very good. I like their design language, audio chops, and how light their skin is. Problem is that when you release these phones every 6 months, you're devaluing the previous flagship because you're using selling stuff at the same price point.

    My Z3 isn't going anywhere, but I'm disappointed by Sony.

    The problem is they keep making 'premium' phones and selling then at premium prices but there is no justification for the price of these phones. (I know the prices weren't announced but it's Sony) No one is going to buy that compact version when you can get a great mid range phone for a lot less. I just don't get where their head is at. It's like their ignoring the market and just doing the same thing they always do, which isn't working.

    I guess we'll have to wait for reviews before final judgement but I get the feeling that the only version anyone is interested in is the 4K version simply for novelty factor. At least that's my opinion.

    Dusk shot on a rocking boat... Not the easiest. Zooming in on a far away object in this light you'll never get a good shot unless you have a DSLR and the knowledge of what to do in these lighting conditions. Azcruz may be able to answer better but on the whole I'd say difficult shot in general.

    Did a little fix up for you. :)

    yeah :D.. observing your subject in their natural habit could be good if your subject doesn't know that you are watching me. that's why reality tv shows aren't really real. they act differently since they are on camera( the Kardashians)

    survey/polling is another way to get info since it could be at random people. thought the surveyor could manipulate or word the question so it could be most likely to confirm their bias in a certain subjects

    Thanks, this looks nice. I think I'm going to take an intro photograph class to improve my picture taking.

    Honestly, when I was on the boat last night, I saw a ton of Samsung and we were on the middle deck looking down on the stage. The folks using their Samsung's in my vicinity were able to zoom in and take good videos. I wasn't. My audio was on point but picture packed the crispiness I would have liked. And that's my thing with this camera...it is good, but you've got to know how to work it.

    Sony has been restructuring for 10(!) years. I'm not surprised at this strategy. It would appear good enough and overpriced is where their head is at.

    Morning folks.

    Life these days if you're in certain brackets seems to be a series of unflattering compromises. It's too early for a drink but I tell you what, the thought of a 7&7 overlooking a sunset with the GF is pretty appealing.

    I'm not chasing the money...maybe that's the problem. Sigh.
