KW Phua: What? I have been hearing A6300 better then DSLR, but now only can challenge DSLR. Not bad, but need to test on wide open f2.8 on 400mm and focus lock on unpredicted moment.

It's a game changer!

abi170845: Okay, how about battery life? I get over 1000 shots with my dslr. Do you offer radio trigger for flash? Third party TTL flash from phottix etc? Ultra wide lens like the Canon 11mm zoom? How is your after sales service and spare parts? or is this part of BATA (Buy and throw away) product?

I have 5 spare batteries for my a6000 which take up practically no room. I can shoot for 2 days with those.
Plenty of off brand flash options for the camera. Phottix bring out a dedicated flash trigger in April and I've been using the older phottix flash trigger with the Newer brand flash units with great results.

Funny how people like to find problems when the really don't exist!

NeilJones: Complete overkill.
Sony a7r ii can achieve similar results at a fraction of price.
With most images being web based now, who needs a 100mp!
So silly.

A toy? Some of the best images ever produced have been taken with the Sony a7r ii
Hardly a toy!

It's a shame that drones will pretty much be banned in most airspace by end of 2016!

juvx: My question is where is a7r II review and score. :) its been months i'm sure yall have a good idea of its capabilities by now.

The fact that it lets me shoot the Canon 24-70 f2.8 II on a pro, reliable level makes it a 94% score for me personally. Now it also has uncompressed RAW starting today. The biggest downside are the damn batteries. The Grip is not optional, its mandatory in my book.

Sweet, this thing is waterproof too?

NeilJones: As a "drone" flyer. I have waited along time for this to come out. The 4k video i currently shoot is great from a small camera on my birds but stills have always been a let down. Once I can get this on a decent gimble and flying, i can't wait to see the still image results.

I would personally would prefer them to integrate this into something like is used on the dji phantom 3 and light bridge. That works great right now.

Wow. A camera I can connect to my phone that already has a camera.
Thank you so much!

So let me get this correct. Absolutely NOTHING NEW brought to the market with this action cam?

Then what's the point?

Lightbridge alone still costs $1300. Since the phantom3 has this included I would say it's a good deal.

I can tell you right now( after speaking with owners) inspire folks are NOT happy!!

Seriously peeps. You all need to wait 2 months as Sony is about to release a killer new tech camera that will blow everything else out of the water!

Mark my words.

How do you hold those things? Seriously, so awkward, no grip, just a slippery box. Not a great design at all. At least the Panny's give you something to hold.

You need to follow Sony if you want "something big"! Forget Canon and Nikon. They're living in the past.

Biological_Viewfinder: This review is nothing new at all.

I have purchased Panasonic cameras because of DPR reviews, and EVERY SINGLE TIME I WAS EXTREMELY DISSAPOINTED.

I'm never going to fall for it again.

Someone better tell all the very happy Panasonic "GH" owners that they are junk. Me thinks they might just disagree with you!

Jogger: Im surprised that DPR is impressed with the 4k video. The reviews that ive read have not been impressed with it at all. I guess its another checkbox to check off.. but, it would have been better to provide higher bit rate 1080p.

what reviewers slam the 4k video?

In reply to:

Mr Physics: Dang. I've been a 12MP guy for quite a while now. It is my fundamental belief that if you can't say it with 12MP then you have a speech impediment. But this light writing machine has me drooling for a number of reasons: they've expanded the range of available (useable?) ISO by 2 stops over the D800 and 4 stops over the D700. If that translates to something noticeable in DR @ base ISO, then that is very big. They have that highlight preserving metering option which is potentially big (for me). I've blown too many highlights from white water fowl to not want this. And what if I'm wrong about 12MP being sufficient to completely record the light from a capture? This machine has me interested in moving beyond the D700 for the first time. Hmmm. I think Nikon hit it out of the ballpark on this one (maybe).

You guys need to seriously look at the new Sony a7s. It's got ya 12mp with better low light than the D4s! And all for $2500!!
