Francis Carver: We already have something quite good now like this, called mSATA. Way better than 2.5-inch SSD laptop drives.

If Intel has got anything to do with this, it'll likely be another "Thunderbolt for Windows PC" fiasco.

I have a mSATA laptop

starts up in 6 seconds

Nuno Souto: All Samsung has to do is fix the start-up times on their tabs and they got Apple licked. The screen on the Tab S is soooo good it's not worth comparing with anything else!
If these things don't cost the Earth, I'm tempted to finally upgrade my old Galaxy Tab 3! It's been my carry everywhere photo album since I got it.

Sony xperia z3 tablet compact is a better tablet. Also waterproof.

sh10453: Great effort, Aram, but the video can be done better.
I prefer to see it taken with a normal lens. The 280 degree lens makes the video look very unnatural to the human eye. I hope you dump the 280 lens next time.
I understand this is not to show video production abilities, so the video shake here and there is OK, but the video still looks and sounds like raw video.
I think it would've been much better if the audio was edited, and a narrative added. The noise from air hitting the mic (or other objects rubbing around it) is always very annoying.
After seeing this video, I am not a fan of 360 degree videos. It's just not for me, especially with this 280 degree type of lens.
It's OK for a 30 sec video to show what it looks like with a 280 deg, but not for a 20-min documentary.
The interactive panoramic images are nice, and the imagery is high quality.

Best of luck in your efforts to bring peace to these twins/neighbors, and I hope that you'll ignore useless, arrogant, ignorant comments!

They used a gopro which is the first mistake,

gorpro doesnt have even a stereo mic, its just MONO

also it doesnt have stabilization

better fit would have been the Sony x1000 action cam which has stereo mic AND stabilizer.

Allen Yang: Why not a used D600 with a cheap Tamron 28-70 at a little more than 1 grand bucks? Yeah,I know, this combination is heavier and bigger,but the IQ you get is much higher than this Forrest Gump! (I like the movie though)

Why not get a a medium format film camera at a little more than 1 grand bucks? Yeah,I know, this combination is heavier and bigger,but the IQ you get is much higher than this Forrest Gump! (I like the movie though)

njlarsen: I question the choice of lenses for this test. Short lenses are always going to be easier to track than long ones. When you get the actual samples for a real review, please make appropriate tests using a long lens (400 mm at least for a full frame). Don't do the easy part of telling us how it works with a standard lens -- all systems are perfect with that type of test.

Niels

400mm*

TheVoid: I'm happy to see Sony's eye-AF highlighted here. It's my favorite feature in the under-$1000 a77mII. My keeper rate for candid people shots has gone up a lot, and it's given me the confidence to take on paid portrait work. So yes, there is an affordable non-e-mount Sony camera out there for casual shooters or amateurs with this feature! (Although not in continuous AF mode -- it's a single focus implementation only, but mapped to any of several available custom buttons it's a very simple thing to re-engage.) Go Sony!

Yeah, engage that eye af in your nikon and canon, oh wait...

I did a headshot session yesterday with my a6000 + 55 zeiss, eye af was on and every single shot was spot on accurate. 35 of 35 photos turned out in focus.

Just a Photographer: Not to be crude but eye-focus in the newly 4.0 firmware of the Fuji X-T1 and the X-T10 is much better implemented and always correct.

This Sony knock off sort of works but has a lot of misses looking at the video.

Also, eye af has been in the a6000 since release, a camera that is only a few weeks newer than the xt1...

Thats 18 months of having eye af.

Good game, fuji.

Henrikw: In the first video only one shot at 0:44 seem to be accurately focused on the eyes. I wonder why it's so keen on the tip of the nose. Hopefully this problem will be ironed out eventually. Great progress in any case

Pdaf system grabs closest point to camera, this is without eye af.

Pro shooting digital since 92: How is this useful for anything other than a single person without touch screen? Help me out here. I'd buy Sony if they had touch screens.

You can face detect more than one person in a scene

infiniti029: Hasn't Olympus (and some others?) already been doing eye detect AF for a while now?

Face detect is something a lot of Sony cameras have had for a while now also.

J A C S: How does this work in low light? What I see there is ISO 100, f/125, f/1.4. What about light requiring ISO 3200, 1/50, wide open, for example?

And like I said, -2ev.

You just choose not to believe it.

In reply to:

johnsmith404: "***In case you missed it: 'magnify' in playback now magnifies the AF point used at capture, rather than simply magnifying the center of the frame. No more scrolling over to the point of interest in playback to check focus; you now have one-click (albeit somewhat laggy) magnification of what was focused on. This extends to all three cameras: a7R II, RX100 IV, and RX10 II."

Yes, finally! I hope they use the PDAF readings also for MF so that playback instantly magnifies the sharpest point with MF lenses. That'd be super useful.

Wonderful upgrade, been looking for this

Hugo600si: That is pretty impressive, fortunately there is still the price to put me off (as in the misses won't agree... really want this one as my next upgrade now :) )

It will take a year but probably mark 3 a7 will have this, without bsi maybe.
