On Sony announces US pricing for full-frame Alpha 7 II article (177 comments in total)
In reply to:

Stubb: Let's see if there's an option for losslessly compressed raw files.

From the discussions we had with Sony, no changes were made to the image pipeline. So that should be unchanged.

Thanks for the catch on which RX100 model it was- the article has been corrected.

aquarta: Does anyone think the battery performance may have improved on the A7 II?

@quezra: the CIPA figures are taken with Wi-Fi turned off

In reply to:

Seeky: DPR, the A7 had already a magnesium top panel, not plastic. The A7 had a composite front panel which is apparently magnesium on the A7II.

Thanks for catching that

In reply to:

left eye: It's looking much more mature - design wise, the A7's fingerprint magnet smooth paint always troubled me, glad sony didn't miss this opportunity for a stippled finish!

But seriously yes apart from the IBIS news, I assume that larger grip houses a larger battery!!

- arh I just checked sonyalpharumours, it's 'reportedly' the same FW-50 battery ;-(

If it's any consolation the battery life has gone from 340 shots on the a7 to 350 here :)

In reply to:

dabhannover: Great review as ever! But how did you convert the RAW-files in ACR? ACR 8.7 RC does not support the LX100. Has there been an update recently - or did you switch the metadata to Lumix GX7?

We often get access to early betas of ACR, which is the case here.

camerosity: The photo of the North Fork Falls is not in Bellevue, it's actually in Newcastle...

Doh. I didn't see the "now entering Newcastle" sign on the trail :)

In reply to:

Buena Vista: Suggestion to DP: If you are going to review a camera in fits and starts, and you did with this camera over the course of several weeks, please tell us what is new in each increment of the review. For instance, what did you do in today's review that was added to or different from what you published in the prior review? Then I wouldn't have to re-read so much of the review and guess about what is new and different in the review. Thank you.

We did just that, on the bottom of the first page.

In reply to:

HowaboutRAW: So there are no raw samples because the official ACR 8 doesn't extract them yet?

Even studio samples (raw) would help.

There are Raw samples... on the image quality and studio test pages. On the latter you need to flip the pulldown from JPEG to Raw, and you can view and download them. We have an early release of ACR which allows us to convert them.

In reply to:

Wilight: Richard, have you ever had any experience with the RX100 III? Can you confirm if the the LX100 AF is faster? And what about the (AF) precision?

Richard has a *lot* to say about the RX100 III, so I'm sure he'll drop by.

In reply to:

iudex: Oh I have just noticed this: max format is 35mm FF. Is it just a typo, or is it really a FF zoom?

It was more like a "drop-down menu fail" than a typo, but it's been fixed. Sorry for the scare.

In reply to:

jagge: lol, who cares ?? this review is so desperately late that it is utterly meaningless. Every single cam site out there has made reviews I guess a year ago, its a cam widely used in productions.

Using energy on this is close to a joke. It just highlights the speed issue on this site. It seems to be very bad use of the time that so obviously is in short demand. Using the time on a current and newer release would make much more sense.

And dont get me wrong its a super relevant cam to review, but at this point in time its a waste of energy

@terapixel: we're going to jump on the NX1 as soon as one arrives. Really.

tecnoworld: Are the interviews available for "non live" viewers? If so, where?

Thanks.

My understanding is that you'll be able to watch them "on demand" in a few days.

That's the plan!

Just added the schedule of events (subject to change, of course). The show will loop after we're done for the day, and you will be able to stream each segment a few days later.

In reply to:

Mike Sandman: It would be very helpful for dPreview to publish an approximate schedule/agenda. I don't have time to listen to all of the company reps, but I could make time to listen to the two or three I'm most interested in...if only you'd let us know when they'll be "on." Same with the photographers you're speaking with. Thanks.

Coming soon!
