lacikuss: A fantasric litlle camera with a good selection of high quality Canon affordable lenses.
Canon at 87 points? Thats a laugh
captura: Is there anything that Samsung can't do?
Samsung vacuum cleaners look exactly like Dyson.
Samsung released a curved tv one year after Sony made one.
Samsung suhd tvs with quantum dots released 3 years after Sony had it in their tvs first, its branded triluminous in Sony.
Samsung copies Apple in smartphone form factor.
Same with everything they do. Look up Samsung innovation museum and have a laugh.
Samsung cant think of an original idea.
marc petzold: The Sony A7R II: A nearly perfect Camera - minus the (current) issue with the compressed RAW 11+7bits Delta Sigma Compression and also Compression Artefacts. C'mon Sony - i won't buy another A7 Series someday 'til you give me 14bit uncompressed RAW for my now 1.5 Year "old" Sony A7. The same goes for all other A7 Series DSLM - i would be feel bad to invest (if i'd have) 3200$ for a A7R II, and have to life with this RAW lossy compression flaw.
It can't be that hard to release a Firmware Update with true 14bit RAW, as the A7 Series should be & have been announced with that feature.
Show me your own shots that this has happened to. At least 3 of them.
Cheng Bao: An interesting discovery:http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/image-comparison/fullscreen?attr184_0=100&attr184_1=200&attr184_2=400&attr184_3=800&attr184_4=1600&attr184_5=6400&normalization=full&widget=266&x=-0.9395524644693076&y=-0.13554790498019378
Around the overblown sign, at ISO100, there are posterization artifacts that could be easy seen. I think, this is the one of the best demonstration of sony's lossy raw scheme.
However, the posterization is gone as ISO goes up, why?
Because youre not pushing the files a 6 ev anymore.
Just held and tested this camera today, everything felt really good about the camera, just like my a7II but the couple of WOW things I took away from it were
1. the shutter sound was VERY quiet, very much like a 5d3 in quiet shutter mode.
2. the EVF was MASSIVE, bigger than a900, 1dx, etc...
Yes the IQ was great, but those were the things that impressed me.
D 503: Still not enough for the price.
Because, they were never planning to buy Sony anyway.
PerL: Personally I doubt that new Sony AF-C system matches even 5 years old prosumer DSLR-technology for true action shooting. I wrote this post about real world-testing results, which generated very little interest.http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/56316733Since DPReview seems very ambitious in researching the AF-C capabilities (and seems very impressed) with the new Sony, it would be interesting to see a similar test. (I know this article is about low light AF-C, but the above would be the next step in evaluation the AF-C)
So you post this because why? Because YOU personally doubt the AF-C of systems that you have never tested or even touched.
here is a real test
J Parker: Just out of curiosity, how does the Panasonic G7 compare in low light auto focus? It's supposed to be able to focus to -4ev even without a focus assist light (Panasonic calls it 'starlight AF').
same as the a7s
My Sony a7s is -4, which is... ridiculous and no one should ever try it without flash or super long exposure
fmian: Manual focus in the right hands with the right viewfinder is still quicker.That's where it's at.
What drugs are you taking, I want some...
Remember the time when people said manual transmission was better? Now what's happened to that?
Azimuth46: well... let's resemble a bit all the constraints of this new camera:
1) it works in low light well BUT ONLY WITH fast (expensive) lenses (which, btw, are NOT so many at the moment!)2) it acquires and keep focus well with moving subjects BUT ONLY IF there is a face or some eyes available, otherwise it tends to hunt. 3) it can work ONLY in 12bit (11bit +7bit offset) lossy raw mode AND UNDER SOME circumstances, this leads to a reduced dynamic range and to a posterisation of the image too. (!!!)4) The silent mode can be used BUT YOU LOSE 1 EV of DR ,and ONLY IF there are some conditions - like artificial lights with fast shutter speeds - it can lead to artefacts in the image. (beside the rolling effect which is typical of this mode)5) There are heavy limitations in customising buttons functions and in saving settings.6) A really PRO program to support them is NOT existent.
Sony, what else?
this is great bit of hi/tech demo, but not a real world cam. This sounds as a 3K$ toy!
Then what is this Sony pro support card doing in my pocket?
Mssimo: Mirrorless are great and all but they cant match DSLR autofocus.......Ohhh..They can now? Well, mirrorless still suck because they dont look as "Professional" and that is why mirrorless will never be better than DSLRs.....Yeah...that.
Sony pro support, been a member since early this year.
For sale, lightly used M9. No damage, comes with lens, hood was lost. This is for body and lens only.
Artpt: That's quite a bit of RAM - 4gb....
Show me ONE phone thats $400 and has 4GB of ram.
Answer: no phone exists at any price.
Photo Pete: Sums it up really.... Spend all your money on a Leica and you end up going on holiday at a cheap apartment where they use 4mm thick chinese granite as a poolside surface, with the tiles having been installed with insufficient cement bedding to the edges.
I guess if it had been an Olympus it would have fallen in the pool... Oly colours have always been over saturated.
Spend your money on a really expensive camera, buy cheap strap and leather case.
Nice camera, ugly and cheap strap and case, thats why it fell?
Snikt228: Disappointed in the lack of weather sealing (again). This really should be a priority in a $3200 pro camera.
I've seen an A7 II fried in a very light rain, hesitant to use my gear at all in any sort of weather
People say, well the pros use this and that camera. Also pros use rain covers for their cameras that are supposedly weather sealed. Seals go bad over time and yes water can get into ANY camera with regular use in rough weather.
Ive had pro bodies go bad in rain. Must carry a rain sleeve.
Wubslin: Does it come with a rootkit?
Does your Nikon come with oil spots? Light flare? Dark frame on your photos?
Hawaii-geek: Sony badly needs a Nikon like "My Menu" ...
and , add another line (so it's at least 3 rows) in the Fn pop up Menu.
So, I "never" have to go into the menus.
Sony also needs a Nikon like Alpha Numeric tag on each menu item. like A1, B3 etcand have those Tags "Exactly" the same in ALL Sony cameras.
So, when someone says C3 "everyone" knows exactly what menu item they are talking about. :)
You need more than 12 custom settings every time you go shooting?
