On Sony a7S used to shoot Chevrolet commercial article (278 comments in total)
In reply to:

Paul Guba: Oddly it doesn't say why use this camera. With a budget and so many known cameras available why would you choose to experiment on a high budget, high pressure job. Why do I feel like I am not being given the whole story?

Lab D is a M4/3 tro;ll who used to post as "Everdog". He was banned for using sock puppets. He has a nasty obsession with E-mount and telling people why they are bad.

Codec isn't everything. A7s blows the crap out of GH4 in low light video.

On Sony a5100 First Impressions Review preview (590 comments in total)
In reply to:

Zvonimir Tosic: In how many colours it comes? Just one? Two?
It hardy looks like a fashionable item — it only looks like a today's mirrorless camera. Perhaps Sony should make a small lens with some interesting finish that can appeal more to both worlds.
Leather grip would be a nice touch too. Also engraved logo, not painted logo; gosh, this looks too harsh.

It's entry level camera -that takes 24 MP pictures with fast AF - not a fashion jewelry.

michael2011: In your RX100III video function review, you guys specifically mentioned full sensor readout and XAVC. Here I see only XAVC. Does this mean A5100 does NOT do full sensor readout?

No, it does not, of that isn't mentioned.

Timmbits: hahaha

Panasonic made the GH4 larger so it looks like something that is in the FF category. (I said "looks", not "is")

Then Sony went and made the FF smaller!

LOL

So what? If WR failed for someone despite correct use, they should make warranty claims to get it fixed for free or get a new body

This does not change the fact that A7s series of cameras are WR according to Sony and official specs

Lab D: About the Sony "weather sealing", there appear to be a lot of threads like this for that body type...

Dr_Jon: I'm assuming the A7s still uses Sony's lossy raw compression that can screw up under some circumstances. That's probably even less desirable in a low-light still camera. Examples:
http://diglloyd.com/blog/2014/20140212_2-SonyA7-RawDigger-posterization.html

I don't trust the article. There are many other articles that shows compressed raw has no visible difference.

Dxomark scorres (based on raw) disprove all these " lossy raw compression is bad" claims, so do images in these studio shots.

"The larger sensor of the gm-1 equals out the slower kit-lens. "

No, it does not. The kit lens is slower by 2 stops. The difference (dxomark) in sensor performance is not 2 stops. It's hardly even one stop. So the slower kit lens does not equal out by larger sensor.

"Or to make room for the weather sealing the a7 lacks. "

A7s is weather sealed, so are all the FE lenses

Stu 5: Although copyright on the close up photo is in dispute. The wider shot is not. It is interesting to see that DPR do not appear to have copyright credited the photo as belonging to David Slater/ Carter News Agency underneath it. Also the photo appears to be on the DPR server. Have DPR paid image rights to use the photo to the Carter News Agency as have news organisations like the The Telegraph and Daily Mail?

sh10453: I do not believe for a split second that these pictures are "selfies" taken by a wild monkey.

Of course I don't believe that this wild animal is suddenly becoming a technical guru, capable of operating a modern-day camera, and becoming a challenger to Ansel Adams.

Mr. Slater brings his reputation 100 meters below ground level with such a ridiculous story.
It's amazing to see so many naive folks who actually believed this BS!

As for the copyrights, and since Slater had brought it onto himself, the copyrights belong to the monkey, the wild animal monkey, that is!

You are wrong.

Your link doesn't support your claim. Wikimedias has both images

"one of the monkeys he was photographing grabbed his camera and proceeded to take hundreds of photos of itself. "

"Have DPR paid image rights to use.."

Why should they? The images are free to use:

"Copyright law states that works not originated by a human author can't support a copyright claim, and that 'a work owing its form to the forces of nature and lacking human authorship is not registrable. "

webrunner5: Wow, The Sony 7s really has a nice look to it on the comparisons. Pretty had to beat large pixels. That is why I still have my original Canon 5D.

The GH4 looks sort of like early Nikon cameras. Pretty much needs a lot of sharping to get it up to snuff. The 7s almost looks Sigma like. Well done Sony.

How do you make your link " common output size and the difference is less clear-cut." clickable?

No moire (serious problem in video) on A7s even compared to GH4
