    I haven't been following the camera technology developments for a number of years now. Are smartphones actually better than real cameras these days in everything but optics? Obviously optics will continue to suck considering how thin phones are. Sensors need to be tiny for the same reason, restricting the amount of light they can receive. But I'd suppose compact cameras have no bigger sensors even if they had vastly superior optics.

    So what is the hardware compression capable of? There's no way that thing would dump 45Gb/s to the processor because there's no way a phone processor could handle that. Are they saying that 1Gb/s is the datarate at 1080p@960fps?

    A quick google shows that 1080p@60fps = 2.78Gb/s. So if it scales linearly it's about 45Gb/s which is about 5.6GB/s. So if you magically had 64GB of storage free on your phone, that's 11 seconds worth of video. Plus there's no way you could feed your storage at that rate, so what's their magic?

    You're probably talking about those cheapo flea market pocket cameras... otherwise this statement is grossly false.

    For example, my Panasonic DMC-G7 (mirrorless, micro 4/3) for example can run circles at lightspeed around any high-end phone when it comes to picture quality.

    guess you missed the important part:
    stored in DRAM, and limited to 4s of video...


    besides that, sony makes +50% of all still cam sensors, and +70% of all video sensors on this planet, and are upscaling to 4K for +10y etc,
    so they do know a little about that stuff.

    just google minidisc and ATRAC compression..
