more clarity is not always better. Portraits and Bokeh e.g.
what is shutterspeed in movie mode anyway.It's not like there are actual actuations of the mechanical shutter. Purely electronic.
fmian: So will they be replacing mirrors for D800 users? Or free upgrades to the D810? Sounds like D800 was a premature release if early reviewers noted how difficult it was to get sharp results but Nikon didn't pick up on it during their own testing. And now the D810 fixes that and pads it with features that could have been in a firmware update anyway...Oh look over here at this shiny new camera while we sweep the old one under the rug...
Manufacturers will never improve anything anymore if improvements render the previous model faulty and they have to replace them all. Stop bitching please.
Zoron: 2014 is transition year to 4K, and this is the last chance for Nikon to milk money from 1080p, in 2016 when D900 is released with 4K.....D810 will be obsolete..
There are people who will use this camera just for shooting photo's you know. The majority of users in fact. Expeed 4 doesn't do 4k anyway. It will probably be in Expeed 5.
Thsoft: Why No 4K Video ?
Because photographers do not want to pay for shidt they don't use. There will be a D810v with 4k video at a $1000 more.
tom1234567: Not worth the monies total rip of from Nikon 3299$ not worth a quarter of that,souped up d800Pentax K3 is a better camera
Obviously you are not a true Pentaxian and stumbled into the brand quite by accident on your way over to Canon or Olympus.
D1N0: Band wagon product.
I am not getting the idea that there is a usp about is this camera. So it has gotta be price. Which means there will be compromises making the camera worse than comparable pana and oly offerings.
Band wagon product.
Adam2: There's something which doesn't add up in these tests. When comparing the image crops against the same scene shot with the 5dmkIII the sony blows out the white structure (very little detail) and the interior part of the building is likewise blown out. In contrast the 5dmkIII preserves the detail in both areas. Is this a DR issue or something to do with exposure?
You are forgetting fan boys. They will jump on the slightest piece of evidence and blow it up to a unshakeable reality. Doesn't matter it is easily falsified, the other fan boys will like it to the top.
onlooker: DXOMark's claimed 1.5 EV dynamic range advantage of A7S over 5DIII does not seem to be reflected in this test. If anything, it appears the other way around.
Just try the lightroom noise reduction on both iso 25.600 pics and see what the result is. A7S gives an much cleaner image.
David J B.: I've taken better photos through my car window.
because you were at the bikini carwash?
firstname.lastname@example.org: So much more detail in the Canon image; Canon is the winner here at high ISO.
You are talking about the Seattle Centre Arches. The lighting of those arches is different in the Canon shots. Just look at the Space Needle. The highlights hardly differ between sony and canon.
ngtszhodavid: to the reviewer: why isn't the d4s review done yet.
The D4s is not really in the scope of dpreview public. It's expensive and big and heavy. It's a pro's tool. Overkill for most every amateur.
eyeswideshut: I take away two impressions from this comparison:- The Canon beats both cameras (just look at those arches in the back - or are they Klingon Birds of Prey?)- Stay away from high ISO if at all possible. Tripod anyone?
Those arches are blown out in the sony's and not in the Canon. Not a resolution difference but dynamic range or lighting. Since nothing else is blown out more in the sony's i guess the lighting around the arches was differrent during the canon-shoot.
Should have put de Nikon Df in there as it is the camera that approaches the iso spec of the a7s (or the D4, but that' s a different price class.)
D1N0: 9,99 for US 17,60 for europeans.
I am talking about Euro's €12,99 is $17,60 edit it's 12,29 so $ 16,75 (still much more).
9,99 for US 17,60 for europeans.
pgphoto_ca: Be carefull....it's not a f2.8-f4 with this sensor (2.7x crop)....it's f5.6-f8 or more.......the crop factor need also to be apply to the aperture :)
A real 400mm f4...is much bigger ! :)
you can send a pm you know.
Needs different camera for each focal length. great idea to sell more camera's
ovatab: Flexible sensor with variable curvature for interchangeable lens cameras?
you could do that easily over 1 axis. 2 would problematic
