The Apple-Samsung courtroom tussle is just the latest in a long line of legal battles for Apple. The company has an established history of taking competitors to court to protect the look and feel of its products. It's part of Apple's DNA.
When Apple launched the 3rd generation iPad (as the new iPad), it also dropped the price of the entry-level 16GB WiFi iPad 2 to $399. Apple's products tend to hold their values exceptionally well, so this two-tablet strategy made sense. Apple also proved the success of discount-the-previous-gen strategy with its iPhone line, where you can now buy current, n-1 and n-2 generations of iPhones at prices separated by $100.
We're going to warn you up front: what you're about to see is eccentric, puzzling, and perhaps even disturbing.
In this last shot, the 808 PureView's image is somewhat underexposed, though it handles the contrast between light and dark areas better. When shooting in difficult light, remember that each handset brings different features to the table. Unlike the iPhone 4S, the 808 PureView lacks a High Dynamic Range (HDR) mode, but it does have a bracketing mode, a feature found in most dSLRs. You can take a maximum of five images at up to +/-2 stops, then process them into HDR photos using additional software. If you prefer a strict HDR mode, however, check out the HTC One X. It performed well in our camera shootout against the iPhone 4S.
We've had furtive glances of Sony's upcoming NEX-6 before, but only in the very clinical space of a government test lab. Apparently, no mere agency can confine it: photography workshop director Vincent Kang has posted a photo of the pre-release mirrorless camera on Weibo for all to see. Posing next to 24mm and 50mm lenses, the NEX-6 looks to be very much the in-between camera we suspected it was, without as much dedicated control as the NEX-7 but still carrying an electronic viewfinder, a pop-up flash and a dedicated function key near the shutter release. The dedicated mode dial is also more conspicuous -- there's no question that Sony wants to free up controls on the back for the future camera's more experienced target audience. Between the new design and the already known inclusion of WiFi, it's looking as though the NEX-6 may hit the sweet spot for shooters who want more control than the NEX-5R without sacrificing all its newer features.
