joe6pack: I assume stabilization works on legacy lens too? Say, user can enter the focal length, etc?

With the announcement, I think the A7 will drop below $1000 this holiday season.

Just 2 years ago one would have never imagined to get a FF camera for under 1000$ !!!

left eye: It's looking much more mature - design wise, the A7's fingerprint magnet smooth paint always troubled me, glad sony didn't miss this opportunity for a stippled finish!

But seriously yes apart from the IBIS news, I assume that larger grip houses a larger battery!!

- arh I just checked sonyalpharumours, it's 'reportedly' the same FW-50 battery ;-(

Maybe in the A9 the grip will hold 2 batteries ! :P

In reply to:

MayaTlab0: Do we have any technical information explaining why, with FE OSS lenses, the lens will take care of pitch and yaw instead of the sensor ? Is it related to the range of correction possible in lens vs. in body or to the sensor heating up, for example ?
Because, to me, although I can only congratulate Sony for adding IBIS on a FF mirrorless camera (and continue to despise their designers for not realising that their auto ISO implementation is subpar), it seems that it's again an example of Sony's "every six months, I want to do something new". Indeed, what's the point of developing stabilised lenses (which might possibly be a little more expensive, heavier, and harder to manufacture to a certain tolerance), if they already knew that they were going to release a stabilised body ? As far as I understand, but I may be mistaken, stabilised lenses still have an advantage in terms of correction range for certain axes, but that's mostly at the telephoto end, not the wide end.

Maybe it's simply technically work better if the lens handles the pitch and yaw, instead of the body.

zubs: With a camera launch now, for its spec it should have had 4K.

Well they can't put all the best specs in the entry level !

Too bad that it's doesn't support UHS-II...
Also surprising that it weights nearly 150g more !

I am pinching myself, now there's even IBIS to my favorite system !
Congrats Sony, I thought that the mount throat was too narrow to implement IBIS !

I'm very disappointed... I wanted so much a 50 000$ revamped A7S with koala leather...

In reply to:

darby ogill: It is supposed to be about avoiding the weight of the Nikon and Canon with the Sony 7,so please let us have a 35mm f2 thats light and compact and a similar 85mm 1.8. Who designs these things,an accountant? If I buy the 35mm 2.8 I lose 2 stops over my micro 4/3 lenses ,thus negating a lot of the advantages of the low light sensors ability.
I would really love to buy a 7 but not with these lenses..all too big or too slow.

Welcome to the world of physics :D

The worst is that Leica employees are currently laughing about the idiots that will pay 20K for that, well I don't have pity either for snobs that like to burn their money... they should rather give it to charities though, if they don't know what to do with it.

chiane: Why are all DPR members liberal Marxists who can't even comment about the actual case without some diatribe about wealth redistribution and workers rights, and blah, blah, blah? When someone asks for your opinion on creating a socialist Utopia, we'll let you know at that time.

Leave nazis in peace, besides this is not the place to talk politics.

I'm French and you're wrong, it does not mean "died laughing", but yes "laughing out loud", don't translate like a computer ! The literal translation means nothing.

In reply to:

JamesD28: If the Nikon D3S could produce unparalleled low-light results back in 2009, and processors and sensors have come a long way in those 4½ years, then I should hope that ISO 102,400 on the A7S is very usable. And ISO 409,600 at a push, at least.

Mike, do you remember that Sony makes the D800 sensor ??
Maybe with some Canon quirks but still.

On AP cuts ties with Pulitzer-winning photographer article (167 comments in total)

The mere act of taking a picture in itself is already an alteration of reality (angle of view, aim, exposition...), if cloning is strictly forbidden, one could just take more pictures to get the one that fits the desired intent.

In this particular case, it's difficult to know if cloning out the camera should have been done or not, we don't know the context.
- has the picture been staged ?
- or on the contrary, was the camera there because of mere bad luck ?
What matters is to convey the reality, not if the picture was altered or not.

There are 3 possibilities:
- you edit the picture to better convey what happened there.
- you don't edit edit the picture even if it gives a false view on what happened.
- you don't share the picture to the world.

Here the photographer should have submitted both versions alongside, and described accurately the context.

On French newspaper publishes issue with no photos article (208 comments in total)
In reply to:

nicoboston: The purpose was also to send a big "ENOUGH" following recurrent racism issues in France lately (as the country is more or less falling appart, it's very tempting to blame others).
Good photographers and photojournalists are not in danger. Talented people will always exist. They have to adapt. It won't be easy, but they have to! Everybody loves nice images. Now everyone can capture decent images with good cameras and phones... If everyone had access to good violins and pianos, it would be more difficult to become a recognized musician. It's competition... Don't give up, photographers ! Newspapers will disappear, you won't ;-)

If you did live in France, you would know that indeed the situation is becoming unbearable with muslims !

But we should discuss photography and not politics here...
