RRJackson: Why do these companies keep delivering 8-bit 4:2:0 codecs? Is there no market for a camera with a robust codec?
There is which is why they make the FS5, FS7, F5, F55, F65.
blink667: If you want great video, buy a video camera.
Dude your comment is so 5 years ago, that they shot an episode of house.
bernardf12: Sony is very clever with their yearly incremental release cycle. The rest of the old guard are still on a 3 year plus release cycle probably like they did in the film days. That doesn't cut it in the electronic age anymore because your design will be old before it is even released.
The whole system hasn't been around for 2 years.
The A7 and A7R were not upgraded after 2 years. The A7 was about 1 year, A7R about 20 months and A7S around 16 months.
Zoron: I'll save the decision after Nikon announces D900.
Ariel Atom is certainly an excellent car.
nerd2: So $3000 12MP camera with good ISO 400000... sounds just as absurd as $3000 50MP camera.
@ Brendon1000 - The FS7 does not have this sensor, nor does the FS5, F5, F55, F65 etc. A7S / II are the only cameras with this sensor.
Dan Tong: This is clearly optimized for video so the most important question is does it have overheating problems of the prior model when shooting at highest 4k rates.
A7S never overheated in my experience, that is the 'previous model'.
shutterbobby: Hmm have a Samsung Note pro 12.1'' with pen & 128GB memory for $600 the last 2 yrs ..& this is news??!!
Surface Pro series have been out for how many years now?
tonyreidsma: They can do this but can't seem to find a way to do 4K recording.
@ rrcad - No they weren't.
dash2k8: Europe only? A work around is gray market.
Other markets shouldn't be time limited so no need.
SingerNick: Yes, Canon has been hitting it out of the park with these premium optics. Hats off to them. But how about they stop shipping 6-year-old sensors in their flagship compact?
'Good glass lasts, bodies come and go' - It would want to with Canon, takes a decade for the sensors to take advantage of the glass ;)
joe6pack: The real question is why Apple is refusing to support touchscreen on MacOS X.
And so we just believe them?
I have been a Mac user for 20 years and I REALLY prefer the SP (and the MANY other hybrids out there) to the current Mac lineup. I still keep my quad core MBP and Octo Core MP, but for travel and day to day I much prefer a Yoga Pro to my work MBA.
Toemel: I wonder how this compares to an app like Remote Mouse for iPad?
Completely different AFACT.
Cool! Now I wish Wacom would support their own pens with the iPhone, seeing how these guys can manage it! Astropad is a great great idea that I have been asking for for ages, if someone could do this with some wacom penabled device that would be even better.
I use a Surface Pro (and prior to that dozens of penabled tablets, no SP was NOT the first, not by about a decade) for this capability, but sure would be nice with something smaller and can be used with more powerful hardware (yes Cintiqs exist and Wacom companion, but both are expensive and somewhat cumbersome needing external power supplies and USB and video connections).
Couscousdelight: It's funny, the Pentax K5II was capable of focusing at -3 Ev since 2012, but DPR don't even notice it in their review's pros & cons :http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/pentax-k-5-ii-k-5-ii-s/18
Same story for the Canon 6D :http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/canon-eos-6d/25
@ Smitty1 - Dude why ask me? Seriously? I don't decide what DPR looks at when doing reviews, but honestly their AF testing has been lacking for a long while. Nothing to do with ME, just an observation, one that DPR themselves admit and are trying to rectify. Is that really so hard to understand?
Chaitanya S: I am still wondering why Olympus didnt use a built in flash onto the Em5 mk II when Em10 series of camera get it. Its far more convinient than having that separate unit. Also its nice to see olympus sell the grip units which helps a lot in improving the ergonomics of these fairly small Om-d series of camera.
@ Chaitanya S - Yes and so does my 7D. But maybe Olympus considers it a compromise or they can't get it as sealed as Pentax can or whatever. I think looking at the Olympus lineup and they have said themselves from memory that this was the case.
acidic: I still have an omd em5. Mk1. Any reason I should get the em10 mk2? The way I see it, I would be gaining WiFi and smaller body, but would be sacrificing weather sealing. Sound about right?
Silent shutter, better EVF, high max shutter speeds, EFCS, WiFi, smaller, likely to have AF improvements as seen in E-M5 II, I think extra fn button(s?), cheaper + smaller optional grip, bigger chunkier dials, a whole host of minor but useful software improvements.
Flash I believe is an issue with the weather sealing.
ozturert: I don't think using Sigma on Canikon is a good idea to test low-light focusing. Plus, why did you not use a 35mm lens on Canikons? I wonder how 5Ds would do with a 35mm f1.4L.Still, obviously Sony came a long way since even A6000 because A6000 is horrible in lowlight focusing. Actually, EM5 is much better than A6000 in that. A7RII is a big step forward.
@ Ozturet - What AF mode were you using? In AF-C the A6000 hangs on to PDAF well outside of its shooting envelope and was much quicker than my E-M5 (which is slow but locks on AF-S). A6000 AF-S doesn't fare so well though, but AF-C is better than E-M5 AF-S and miles better than E-M5 AF-C.
@ Smitty1 - Cool, maybe dig out all the other low light AF tests that DPR did back then while avoiding doing it for the cameras you mentioned? It has not previously been a critical part of DPR reviews until (very) recently. I know that that doesn't play well with your conspiracy theories though.
