I'm going to use a ford fiesta to move this load of crap instead of a dump truck. They're both vehicles, you can move stuff in the fiesta, it takes a lot less gas too.

I don't want the power of Google's pixel camera app. The reason is because I shoot RAW and have the ability to edit my own photos. I don't need them sharpening or softening anything, changing exposure, adjust shadows, etc.

What the google camera app is doing is making these decisions for you based on a machine learning approach that you have no input into. This is the opposite of someone interested in photography should be doing. It's like being a race car driver sitting in a self driving car. Convenient but not really the point.

A self driving race car is far faster and safer than a human driving in a race. Why do you think you can edit photos better than Google's multi billion dollar AI algorithms? Everything you can do in Photoshop, Google can automate and do better.

The moment Google or Apple decides to make a mirrorless-smartphone hybrid with their backing is the moment Canon and Sony's camera divisions will go bankrupt.
Already reviewing a product that doesn't exist?Face With Tears Of Joy Let us know how this mirrorless-smartpone hybrid performs better than current cameras, I'd gladly take your advice on this.

No I mean in your previous post you already admitted not understanding the concept of focal lengths well. So hearing you talk about the end of Canon and Sony...

Not only is this not true, it shows no understand of WHY human beings race.

It is most definitely true. Put a computer driven car on a race track and it will leave every single human in the dust. A computer driven car can accelerate perfectly, brake perfectly, and corner perfectly compared to a human. People drive race cars because it is for bragging rights, not because humans are the best at anything.

And in the future your glasses will be so smart that it automatically take pictures for you. You no longer even need to carry camera or even a cellphone. And that's what all the pros will be doing in weddings: Letting their glasses automatically take pictures of the wedding while they dance with the bridesmaids. Photochopping is automatic too and the "photographer" get paid $10k for the job. Not bad for not doing anything.
🤣

Computers are getting faster and faster, but still no match for human reflex. I suggest you to watch video of how Tesla fail at breaking at the last minute. No wonder, they opt for "semi-autonomous"

It's a conspiracy from humans to look better than AIs.
