    Can you guys imagine how productive we'll be after next week? I don't know about you guys, but I can't play with my phone during work that much; forum chatter is a lot easier to pass off while using my computer.

    Our lives will certainly change.

    I find it amusing that before there would be a flurry of posts around 1k's but since the directive. it almost stops. Its almost like everything is sitting there hitting F5 trying to get "the" post with out spamming :p

    Hahaha, was wondering the same thing myself. Googling the name brings up three results, all from today, from posts on forums (including this one) about today's press release.

    Didn't the Rezound PR come really late on a Friday... like 5pm EST?

    Hell, it's bad enough I'll have a 64GB T Prime to try to avoid drooling on after the GNex arrives. I think I'll be quite distracted with those, the holidays, some gaming, catching up on comics, and testing Windows 8. And that's just in the spare time when I'm not relaxing with my wife. :D

    Crap, I suppose I have to work as well! LOL! Thank goodness I took the week between Christmas and New Year's off. This is the last time we'll have 3-day weekends for those holidays for a while. 10 days off to play with gadgets.... Bliss. :)

    I'm sure it has WB, flash on/off, metering (center, frame average, center weighted), ISO, and a little exposure compensation (I'm going off my CM7 Inc). There are a few apps in market where you can pimp out your camera though :D

    Noticed I said lighting 1st in my earlier comment. Knowledge of it in photography is priceless

    Yeah..no weddings will be shot...well, we'll see, lol. I think I saw a while back where someone shot an entire wedding with an iPhone 4. Results were nice too. It was an extremely talented photographer though...talented/creative photographers can take surprisingly good pictures with just about anything.

    That being said, aperture on phone cameras are important for indoor shots to have less motion blur and camera shake. That was my main point in the discussion. The Nexus should be pretty good.

    Very fortunate (or unfortunate, depending on how you look at it) that this coincides with the least busy time of year for me. After Christmas, I start getting busy again, so a pre-Christmas release is crucial for my continued employment. Every day I tell myself "I'm not even going to log in." But I'm like a crack head fresh out of rehab...."I'll just check once." And then one hit turns into three...and before you know it, the forum is on my second screen all day, and I'm carefully making sure I minimize before I leave my desk to go to the bathroom. I'm not proud of this, by the way. But I've accepted it.

    Not talking about zooms, talking about primes. But you're right if we're looking at zoom like a 28-70mm

    In the last 2 weeks I've ordered the spiderpodium mount, a MHL adapter, extra HDMI cable, and TPU case. I also "lent" the spiderpodium mount to my mom and she said she likes it so much that I won't be getting it back (worked great in her 2005 Subaru Legacy and also a rental car), so I'll have to figure out if I want to get another one or let someone else get me something for Christmas... decisions decisions. I can't believe that in less than a week we "should" all have a Galaxy Nexus. :)

    You got me dead to rights, I haven't been alive 30 years, much less reading anything but the back of my eyelids for that long. I digress

    Scary, sounds like my clone is posting on behalf of me right now :eek:

    Yes, lighting is SO overlooked, and I would say is the #1 factor in regards to quality, especially in "smartphone photography."

    Jealous. I'm going to have to wait on the TP if the 8th holds up for the SGN. My wife is NOT going to let me plunk down another $500.

    Unless my boss gives me a ridiculous bonus this year. But judging from my productivity (or lack thereof) the last 3 months, that isn't likely.

    Not sure about the Rezound but the previous Nexus PR came around that time on Friday I believe.

    They keep telling me at work that I am using my phone too much. I then tell them if they didn't restrict my internet then i wouldn't need my phone.
    That being said I probably will be slightly more productive once I have the phone for a couple days.

    I knew this in my mind but had no justification to prove it so I just let it slide. However, f/2.8 is f/2.8 no matter what the focal length. Aperture is calculated by the focal length divided by the diameter of the pupil. So if your focal length goes up, the diameter has to go up as well in order to maintain the same aperture.

    I know we would all like to believe that our software updates won't be delayed by Verizon before we get them, but if this thing comes with VZW software out of the box it will be delayed until Verizon can ensure that their suite of crapware doesn't break on the update.
