HowaboutRAW: Good for Sony, now reconsider compressed raws in general.

Even I hardly use continuous shot so that frame rate to me is pointless really. This A7 autofocus is pretty quick enough for a single shot of children seriously even combined with both Contrast and Phase detection. I rather see that full 14 bit raws enabled!

naththo: What about the sensor heating issue problem especially in Pentax and Sony Mirrorless? That would have increase noise significantly especially Australia is a hot country not a cold country at all.

Yup pretty much so RichRMA. Thats why my friend who has Pentax and wants to take astro photos but he had to custom build the cooler system for that Pentax as he lives in Mackay which is in tropical region so the heat is constant almost all year round with rather high humidity. Having custom built cooling system it helps a lot for astro photos.

I forgot one more thing silly me! The JPEG noise when NR turned off was less noisy than when opening RAW file in photoshop. Im surprised!

Thats the reason I steer clear of Alpha with Translucent Mirror cos it just ruin the image. I am glad that I am sticking to Mirrorless for time being. I wish it does have non compressed lossless raw option though still! But the colours bit at based ISO in mirrorless from A7 I find it excellent so was in Nex 7. Not every raw software will work well with Sony. Its very tricky one. Even heck, I did compared two images one with RAW and one with JPEG exact same image. The noise reduction was turned off for JPEG. I tried noise reduction in RAW and then the JPEG. Who won the competition? JPEG! Cos incamera already converted to JPEG before saving into SD card. It always taken raw then converted to JPEG with incamera true Sony processing. But the colour maybe not as perfect but still with noise reduction is amazing.

Oh yeah the JPEG one especially blue skies was not good sometimes exhibit amount of banding that is barely visible that bothers me, even make matter worse if I set NR on the banding get worsen. So I had to turn down NR or turn off all together. I rather stick to RAW and open up Adobe and I don't see banding in RAW which is much better off with.

Colour data of 3 bit is a lot to lose. How many shade per bit per colour (RGB) do you know? If it is 8 bit would be 256? Well come to think of monitor does 255 in 8 bit? Actually found it in Wikipedia. 3 bits per colour = 8 shade. So total is 24 shade in RGB. Hrm. Thats not much so you might be right yes.

mrgrum how about when you extract the Sony current ARW with 11 bit only, the rest of valuable of 3 bits out of 14 bits are being lost? How do you feel about that? I think thats bad enough to me really.

Yup I have done signing petition over that to ask to remove restriction on RAW and open the option with the 14 bit uncompressed raw thats what I want to go for it. I do hope they will do it.

Yup indeed HowaboutRAW that market thing I am not really interesting in which is definitely correct. I only interesting in how that camera performs in review. This discussion mike puts in is a true type of trolling/flaming which is strictly against the rules here. Mike please quit it you got your last chance then you will be reported! And Samsung can sue you for defamation on market things. Just be careful on what you are posting Mike!

Actually I was told its the sensor heating not the sensor issue problem. So there you go.

http://www.dpreview.com/galleries/187176019/photos/3188801/dsc01013 < That one I took photo near dark and this shows glowing edge high ISO noise problem coming from A7. Not very impressed. And it was only ISO 3200 btw.

Franz Weber: Why is the interview with the Samsung Manager on the first site of the review not available in 4K?

HowaboutRAW video card still got long way to go for 4K to run smoothly without stuttering. Monitor is also coming long way. 2560 x 1440 has been around for long time and monitor/video card is 100% optimised by that. 4K still new to it atm. It will have bit of glitch. Give it another year or so before it gets better.

Sony still need to sort out the problem with based ISO shadow noise and the high iso messy noisy picture even with glowing edge noise that were seen in A7 which is not good.

iudex: Eagerly waiting for the complete review. The competition already posted the review and it was very positive, enthusiastic about the camera:
http://www.ephotozine.com/article/pentax-k-s2-dslr-review-27269#Verdict
However the reviewer is a Pentax user himself, so I better wait for an impartial review by DPR.

Im into weather/meteorologist subject since before teen and have understood on weather condition involves with pretty much everything including spectrum of colours in angle of light. I was using colour sample to analysis which result that darker shade of gas tank is RGB 126 124 135 (Bit too blue), on bumper further right of a car which is RGB 124 136 148 which is too blue again. What does that tell you? Blue cast. The white patch on poster on the door is 204 209 215, close enough to perfect. So I can safely correct it on the white patch the door to correct it. And the result looks better overall. Ah well its not only Pentax has issue with WB, same affecting Sony which I owns too.

Ok I downloaded one of sample of outdoor image from ephotozine and analysis the white balance, indeed the white balance was off. I did correct it and it was much better, much more realistic white balance. Pentax and Sony both are prone to have white balance error due to sensor from Sony. They could have done a lot better by fine tune the error tolerance of white balance. Nikon seems to be doing better job with white balance though so is Canon.
