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).

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
Marty4650: It might have been interesting to see how well the Nikon 1 AW1 performed against these cameras. Compared to the four cameras reviewed, the Nikon 1 has a "huge sensor."
The aperture of the TG-2 is about 4mm2 At F2, the aperture of the AW1 is about 7.75mm2 at F3.5. Almost twice as much light gets through.
@mike fl aperture area is not an absolute value. It's relative to focal length. focal length/aperture is aperture diameter. Bigger sensors have longer focal length's and consequently larger aperture diameters.
Rod McD: I'm getting deja vu......... Why can't at least one camera manufacturer offer a decent WP camera? There seems to be an assumption inherent in these designs that outdoors types aren't interested in IQ or camera controls. The alternative of DSLRs in housings are simply impractical for water sports, climbing, caving, skiing and so on. And the housings are often more expensive than the camera...... Surely there it would be feasible to offer something in between - a decent size sensor (1", APSC?) a fixed high quality zoom lens, raw and reasonable ergonomics?
Nikon 1 AW1
Not much happening is this market. You might as well have put last years model from Panasonic an Sony in ass well. Fuji also has one XP70. I don't see much news from Samsung and Casio though. Manufacturers should make more of the video function of these camera's otherwise they will be shot out off the water by actioncams.
thx1138: This will be a race to the bottom and hopefully literally and not metaphorically. Send them all to Davy Jones' locker I say!
I reckon you should have thrown in the Nikon AW1 as a reference just to see how the tiny sensored jpg only monstrosities compare, not that the AW1 is without issues.
Sony needs to make an UW version of the RX100III.
I'd get a waterproof keyboard first.
D1N0: Aluminum lenses would look better in this.
Gravitational lenses would also be cool. You could really suck in your subject.
Aluminum lenses would look better in this.
Beavis and Butthead should comment this video.
