Don't sweat it, I get it, they are a bit technically illiterate to understand that most issues are overcomable, and cinema cameras are nearly the future's go pros. I've been looking at and designing technologies that can put a cinema level camera in a credit card. There is a long way to go (like 'incompetency') but these sorts of things are possible and getting a phone to record descent format, with a back illuminated sensor that has fast shutter (like an old Sony CMOS fhd camcorder) to reduce rolling shutter and merge frames for desired blur), and run such footage through a shake noise and lens correction software, and 'learn' how to hold a phone, is simple in comparison. Some other people are onto the sane ideas, go over to redshark and read their articles, and realise they are applicable to mobile phone footage too.
There are many uses for such a phone, so don't sweat it Stephanie, likely a few of these people would like one.
Anyway, where did you see the Note 3 UHD 60fps stuff?
Stephanie, I'm curious, how did they get the Note 3 to do 4k at 60 and 120fps? I was waiting for somebody to try 60fps.
OK, on topic again. Would be great to have a list of filming features of the phones? Like, I'm hanging out for ultrahd at 50fps and higher data rates, but don't need to wait for a Nvidia K1 phone. Once we get to 100-144 mb/s we will be doing OK. 144-300 with 10 bit 4:2:2, or bayer, should be possible, and we would be in cream. Just time for the chip nodes to shrink and their energy consumption to come down enough to make this possible without overheating before silicon reaches its minimum power consumption.
Good news is that the GaAs alternative to silicon has just finally taken a leap forward, so 8k phones should be possible.
Wow, this website is difficult, it crashed my browser, and lost my open pages, and this floating menue bar keeps floating accross the middle of what I'm reading and breaking up and leaving behind bits of itself on piece of the text. Zooming in on my normal surfing phone makes it worse. It hasn't improved since I left months back. And now I have to login to post. Joe, simpler is better. :)
