The theory is that the more devices the iPhone 5 can replace, the higher the utility of the device to consumers is, and the higher price they will pay. The iPhone 5 currently works as a phone, and for most customers as an mp3 player. It also serves to delay some of the time spent on personal computers for certain segments of the market.
A second benefit of the all-in-one model is that when consumers seek to update one function of their device, i.e. their camera, they have to replace the entire product, at full cost. The market model is a great one for Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL), but the iPhone 5 has yet to replace cameras.
This is so true. I’m been thinking about that and when I get a new phone, I’m looking at all sorts of features that I do not need. I have a camera and the iPhone 5 one probably isn’t going to be better but I still get attracted to it anyway.
One day phone device makers will get away just with a significant update to a particular feature and everyone’s just going to get new phones. This is perhaps already happening.
This is just amazing technical achievement. Here is the first SprintCam v3 showreel, made for NAB 2009 exhibition. Mostly 1000FPS shots, made during a recent rugby competition in the Stade de France, Paris. The jelly shot is 2500FPS.
These days I’ve been taking pictures of almost everything. I could, possibly, be a photo journalist one day with the amount of pictures that I am taking. I took pictures of food. The following is Ridzuan’s favorite Hello Panda food. He finishes half a box and his eye lids are heavier than those of pandas.
I work at Widgeous, this is our make-shift pantry room. We don’t lock our food, so far there are no unaccountable food. Snacks that graced Widgeous includes Hello Panda, Kit Kat, Oreo, Lexus, fake Kinder Bueno and more. Ridzuan is probably our unofficial chief pantry officer. I like biting on pandas.
Three years back I was talking about mobile phone with inbuilt cameras with Gowri. And she raved how useful and great the idea is to place a camera in the mobile phone. I said it was just a fad and it’ll go away after a couple of years. Today… Well…
You’re right Gowri. And I’m addicted. I don’t snap pictures of people, but I snap a lot of pictures of animals and objects.
Almost all the pictures in this blog is taken on Samsung U600 which has the tendency of being overexposed, dully-colored and its 3.2 megapixel looked like 1.6 megapixel with a 2x digital zoom. But Photoshop always saves the day. I got this custom action just to re-adjust the colors back.
With the phone camera, I took pictures of things I find odd and post it up. It takes a bit of time for sure but I am beginning to feel a need to archive my memories. I only take pictures when I am out of my house, and when I’m out of my house I’m usually eating. So you see lots of food photographs such as the one above.
