On Sony a7S used to shoot Chevrolet commercial article (274 comments in total)
In reply to:

DaGurney: But it records to some low-bitrate, interframe-compressed, decimated-color garbage codec! Reportedly at the rather pathetic bitrate of 60 Mbps.

Not to mention that shooting motion pictures with a full-frame 35mm sensor is WORSE than using an APS-sized sensor (which matches 35mm motion-picture-sized frames), because the depth of field is often way too shallow to keep moving objects in focus, especially in the low-light conditions for which they're touting this camera.

This is ridiculous. Until these cameras have decent data throughput and a high-quality intraframe codec, they're not serious motion-picture tools.

Lots of burned m43 fanboys roaming here. :-)

Less light ha.

dash2k8: All these haters coming out of the woods! I see this situation as Company A decided to use Device B to shoot Commercial C. Who cares what they use, as long as they get the desired results? The Mona Lisa was painted with a 0 megapixel camel hair brush but the result wasn't so bad, was it?

If you don't like the A7s, say "I don't like the A7s" or "I would use something more powerful/expensive/professional." To dump on this camera just because it's not an Arri is nothing but self-service.

Michaelangelo hated painting. Those who call him over rated really have no clue of history.
For a person who disliked a form of art to paint what he painted is miracle in itself.

Flashback: Still no 4K from Sony?

Could it actually be possible that their new Bionz X processor, doesn't support 4K.

Any road, Panasonic must be smiling...

it does not matter whether it is a still camera. The point was "Still no 4K from Sony?"
Off course sony do offer 4k, may be not in the cameras he is looking into. Nonetheless smart A comments gets smart A replies. OP will be careful next time he tries to be smarty.

In reply to:

Poweruser: I guess this camera is fine and all. But it´s still a brick and a technological dead-end. I know my little mirrorless is "worse" on paper. But so much more fun to have it with me all day.

Couple the D810 with a decent Nikon zoom and what you get is almost grotesque in size and weight.

@y Fogsprig

"Hurt? Oh yeah, I'm crying here."

Based on your comments so far, it seems like the most likely scenrio.

Nothing better than a burnt m43 fanboy. I enjoy them all the time. They are fun , specially when they are crying.

@Guy Swarbrick , good article btw did enjoy it.

Ignore some of the guys who are too emotionally invested in their gear to see things objectively.

some m43 users are hurst because in their world view m43 is a sports shooter's camera and finding someone who does not agree with them upsets them.

In reply to:

Lightpath48: Is this supposed to be a cute little fashion statement with toy filters? That's the impression made on me. For photo results in a compact form at the same price, I'd rather an earlier Sony RX100 model. Obviously there's some sort of niche for this Pentax among those who are a third my age.

if you want to stick to standard lenses only then try RX100 for size and weight. By your logic as far as weight and size is concerned rx100 renders m43 mount useless and redundant.

Not so fast, where is your 85mm to 250 mm eq lens in 56 grams http://www.dpreview.com/products/pentax/lenses/pentax_q_06

while you are at it, i would like to have 160 deg view in 29 gms too.

http://www.dpreview.com/products/pentax/lenses/pentax_q_03

Q runs circles around m43 on size and weight. It is a fact.

In reply to:

peevee1: There is exactly one 1/1.7" sensor produced, so Pentax is stuck with it on this joke of a system. At least they could try to make it half-useful by producing native supertele and macro lenses instead of essentially renaming Q7 into Q-S1.

"Since when are sales number an indicator of quality? Especially what sells in Japan."

Agreed, which exactly the case when we compare sony mirrorless against tiny sensored m43. Sales figures in japan do not show where quality lies.

"In Japan, they buy used panties from vending machines. Just saying."

Having lived in japan for 8 years havn't seen anyone actually buying one. Did not even know it existed. If you are talking about something that happened, then lots of things happen in all parts of world , it does not make them rule or general behaviour.

In 2012, original Q did out sell OMD in japan. Not just saying.

@nevercat if you are going to use that one lens on panasonic than you may be right but try attaching other lenses and let me know if it is still the smallest.

maxnimo: Wow, this looks like the perfect camera! I assume it's full frame with a super sharp lens and a super clean noise-free image at ISO 3200! I'm so totally excited.
I'm getting one today before it's all sold out.

and shoot museum worthy images out of it, that you are shooting with rest of your FF cameras as well.

PS: It is too easy to be a smart A.

In reply to:

forpetessake: After the detailed article about the lens equivalence one could expect DPR would stop writing "24-1248mm equivalent F2.8-5.6 zoom lens", but here we go again. I guess the advertising dollars are more important than truth.

Now all we need is to make sure that we compare this with m43 on f15 equivalent dof and conclude that this has better sensor (like m43 crowd love to do when compare against FF).

like for example smartphone cameras are 0.0001% of cameras used over the world and Medium format rules the world with 90% of cameras used in world today.

Biological_Viewfinder: HAHAHAHAHAAHAHAAHAHA!!!!!!11111

"Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 compared to Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10"

That's the funniest headline I've ever seen here!

-

I've owned several Panasonic cameras, and I own the Rx10.
The only Panasonic product I have ever liked was a cordless telephone.
Saying a Panasonic anything could even remotely compare to a Sony anything is the most ridiculous thing I've ever read here, and I've read a lot of nonsense.

The only reason I would even take this seriously is if I owned a Panasonic and didn't know any better.

@cmvsm (4 hours ago)

"Guess you didn't see the image comparisons. The Panasonic's 400 looked like the RX10's...oh wait, the RX10's lens falls a bit short."

And also did you compare images at 24mm, o wait panasonic is not wide enough.

Lol.

@grantbush "Why did you continue buying Panasonic cameras if you didn't like any of them???"

May be because people here say that your opinion does not count as you never owned that.
By that token his opinion should count a lot, isn't it.
