One thought on “Samsung Pixon specifications revealed, photographer Nick Turpin involved in launch

  • HDR or High Dynamic Range is a standard I’m familiar with in photography circles, ‘WDR’ is not…

    I fear Samsung’s marketing department is trying to sex up the lens beyond its specification there with a faux buzzword and a bit of software trickery; and no Xenon flash?!

    Some camera phone that turned out to be.

    The LG Renoir seems a lot more well-rounded in its feature-set in my opinion, and probably came out of the same factory.
