Joe Ogiba: It's funny seeing DSLR fanboys talking shi* about mirrorless cameras. They think the huge flipping mirror DSLR is the future. Wrong, the DSLR is the buggy whip of cameras. I bet the top people at DPR know that but they depend on the aging DSLR sheep for view count. The A7r II, A7s II , NX1 etc are the future.
Ha!!! is all I can say. #LoveDSLR. Very narrow and unrealistic view
Sorry nice try samsung. I use lower case on purpose. #LoveDSLR as it fits my hands while working. As a gadget or toy you make interesting cameras.
NoMirror99: To see and understand why and how the a7RII blows the Canon 1dx, 5Dsr, and Nikon D810 out of the water, and is the King of dynamic range, watch this video:
Hi had to sign in and comment here. I've come of DP Review as there is so much C**p put on here. I've watched this video and have to say that there is so much manipulation biased to the Sony. No argument Sony sensors have great dynamic range. But this is not real world and a slant lab test that really proves very little to most photographers. I'll leave again now. Thanks.
BeaniePic: Waiting for some creative photographers to show the world that View Finders in any format restrict your photography. Wait for the rain of Viewfinder lovers to go on now... Every counter argument can be dismissed, that's all I'm saying...
SSantana75, Sorry you get so easily upset. What would you like to hear as you seem to dislike anything that you don't agree with... I have a request, please block me as I or indeed you don't need this in our lives.
BeaniePic: Oh all please shut up about 4K in this type of camera.... It will be in all cameras when needed and not before, with all the expected changes to video over the coming years having the current for of 4K will be like having Blu-Ray in your PC, useless.
BarnET not the same spec and an older camera. As for the "fanboy" statement your off there. Used the FZ1000 for a month and returned. burst rate and AF are great on paper, in real life a different story 30% hit rate on usable images, one of the lowest percentages I got when testing. Promoting great spec and delivering great spec are two different things. Canon and other brands included.
Gene Naftulyev: Compressed RAW, 12 bit processing, horrible ergonomics on body for non-hobbyist use (8 hr per day), crappy battery life, paid 'apps' for camera wifi control, and only 1 good native mount lens requiring use of Canon metabones adapter for everything else.
No thank you... Let Sony do R&D to make cameras that technogeeks tinker with, which gets Canon and Nikon off their asses to compete, but for work use, I'm happy with my 5D3/5DSR pair. Getting focus just right on the 5DSR is definitely more of a pain than on the Sony a7r (yes I also own one) but the resulting raw studio image from the Canon is as good as I get from a rented Pentax 645z. Way above the IQ of the a7r.
Hi The Squire, sorry about that **Hugs** back ;)
JeanPierre Thibaudeau: What is this? A full frame camera with all sample images shot between 100-800 ISO?? Nothing above 800! When DPR reviews a 4/3 sensor camera, the ISO is pushed beyond ISO 6400 on their samples.
Does Canon need help to hide their high ISO performance?
We want to see samples at ISO 12000 and beyond for the new 5D full frame cameras.
Jean Pierre who's "We". I for one don't!
MrImprovement: Can someone explain why, in 2015, any camera over $499 retail can only do 1080p/30 ? Is it a firmware thing (I somehow doubt it)?
As most people who use this type of camera do not require or even understand the current form of 4K.
Lassoni: boycott canon. no more bad cameras. that's the only way around this
Great camera for someone starting out on the true photography journey, Nice to see good MP's, strong Auto Focus (through the viewfinder) and nicely designed ergonomics. In my humble view anyway.
Mike FL: As a P&S, G7X lens is good, so does the SONY sensor inside.
Battery life is bad, but users may be able to live with it.
The AF is the worst second to none, and it rarely saw that users return a camera b/c exceptional poor AF system, but G7X is:
Too bad for a #1 camera maker, and I do think Canon does not release EOS-M3 in USA is smart, but why release G7X?
Canon may be able to overhaul AF in G7X-MK2, and put SONY new 1" sensor inside.
AS far as poooooor battery life, there is always a G7X-MK3...
AF issue??? The AF in my G7X has been the best AF in any compact camera I've ever used. Fast and accurate. Would check on the unit you used.
Good reply! When did commenting become trolling, Or is trolling the new trolling?Oh and by the way My "old kit" pay's the bills and more so I'm happy.
King of Song: Did Sony just do the impossible?Yes.... Sony has just kicked Canon and Nikon in the teeth. And if Sony should decide to not sell this new sensor, or any other new sensors to Nikon. Nikon may well go out of business. Canon is doing a good job of putting themselves out of business.
While your statement is factually wrong, emotionally I can see where your coming from. Sony are doing great things on paper, if that wets your whistle off you go. As for long term Canon especially are safe, Nikon well I'm not sure, lets see. In Glass, consumer products and especially on the professional end Canon are still ahead. Sony is the number one sensor seller, Canon at this time don't have to sell their's.
AngryCorgi: Cue the Canon fanboys trashing the new Sony camera whilst using a brand new camera with a sensor designed 12 years ago.
Was waiting for this type of post. Glad you didn't let us down ;)
With you on so many points here. I'm a EOS 5D MkIII user, as a tool to work with with my EOS C500. I've found the Sony a7 series just a little to fiddly to work with on a job. It's a nice camera for people with money that like Big spec and better image quality. But as a work tool it doesn't tick many boxes. But again it's a well sec'd camera.
Sorry I thought this was a "discussion" forum?
FodgeandDum: I didn't know there was Lumix camera with a 1 inch 20Mp sensor with 25X optical zoom that did the exact same for 200-300 less. Please send the details...
Not here to upset, have taken plenty a beating on DP review for being a Canon fan and user. Use Cinema EOS Cameras with 4K for work. But for personal use it is not required. My view as a humble professional that's all.
FodgeandDurn: Of course people can criticise products, but what happens a lot here is people get criticised for liking a product.... Whats with that? I'm a fan of this camera and will not require "4K" or a view Finder. It's got a lot I want and need in my next camera.
dcolak: XXI century and no EVF?! WTF Canon?!
T3 "EVF is much better for daylight outdoor shooting, too." ABSOLUTELY WRONG! I use my viewfinder less and less, My photography has taken a fantastic new direction. My perspective and angles are developing more and more, I'm no longer restricted to having to put my cameras to my face in any lighting condition, bright or dark. Time for View finder Photographers to change their perspective...
Oh all please shut up about 4K in this type of camera.... It will be in all cameras when needed and not before, with all the expected changes to video over the coming years having the current for of 4K will be like having Blu-Ray in your PC, useless.
