Per Inge Oestmoen: Why should we accept Software-as-a-Service?

If we accept to be tied to a software subscription in order to access and use our own data, soon both the operating system and applications will be entirely server-based and no longer installable locally. In such a scenario, the user will lose all use of the software as soon as the software company's subscription service is inaccesible or discontinues - or if the licensee failsl to pay for forever reason. In other words, in the subscription model the user is forever completely dependent on the software subscription in order to access his or her own data.

We have to demand from all software companies that they create software with perpetual licenses that can legally be used for an unlimited time on compatible hardware. We also have to demand that the software comes in the form of full and unrestricted installation versions that can be backed up and installed at any time and independent from its manufacturer.

OEM windows versions are similar to rent-a-software license. It can be installed only on a new PC and it dies with it.

Luckily, looks like EU courts don't enforce such practices, because every copy no matter if it's oem, dsp or retail is assumed to be the property of the buyer and can be used as he likes. Ofcourse fair use. This means, in EU oem windows versions are sold as retail versions.

To me, the new Sony sensors seem to have a more blotchy noise. And stronger chroma noise. It seems that Nikon and even Canon control noise better. It's noise is finer and has less chroma artifacts.

Really nice camera. I wonder if it could get smaller in the size department with a pancake zoom or maybe with a fixed lens.

OBI656: From what I see, Canon is fooling around with us. Their latest "innovation" white painted camera is at least a joke !

This A7r with three-four Zeiss glasses will be my choice for years to come.

Quad pixel would mean there are four pixels under one microlens. Each in it's corner. This way the pixel could achieve the same AF sensitivity as a cross type AF point in your dslr. All theory but it's a logical step from a dual pixel. Not only cross type. Even double cross type. I'm pretty sure Canon already plays with this tech in their laboratories.

zigi_S: Winner of low light noise is Canon. Second Sony DSCR1X1. Seems as DXO is a balloon of hot air. How can anyone prefer the blue tint over solid blacks. And where is Canon 6d? It ought to be even a little better.

You are saying dpreviews comparison tool is defective? Or it's only your software that is correcting this tinge under the hood.

Because the first eos m was a copy of what other companies sell. Eos m2 will incorporate dual pixel pdaf. This is the reason it will leap forward. Small but not slow. And you can use all eos lenses without compromise. The problem with m43 is, that is expensive for what it is! Nex is already dead. Nikon 1 is a joke. I'm sure this sony full frame will have some success. But I don't see a camera body for almost 2000$ sell that well. Let's not forget the economic depression we are in. Only cameras that will do good in it are the "cheap" with the most bang. Which is canon eos m. Sell the bodies for less than 500$ with a nice kit lens and affordable after market equipment. Canon knows this game very well.

EOS M2 will bulldoze the mirrorless market.

They innovated with dual pixel more effective than all other "innovators". Dual and probably quad pixel is tech that will make mirrorless viable. Till now, even sony's on sensor pdaf solution didn't do that.

I compared all images in the dpreviews comparing tool in RAW at ISOs 6400 and greater, low light. This new sony and the nikon, both have blue tinge in all over the image. Best blacks have CANON and SONY DSCR1.

jpr2: I really do MISS two things in the new DPR's comparometer:

- nowhere in the scene there is an object of a relatively large, uniform surface, like it was a flat blue face of the watch, and yet with some very firmly outlined and crisp ciphers of the OLD comparometer - the bottle at the bottom can't replace that blue watch entirely, alas; the new scene is just a wee bit too busy with lots of pretty "talkative" object;

- and the ability to compare OLDER cameras with the new ones (this would be easier to rectify, but are there any such plans?);

I like the low light scene. It gives those dx0 champions a run for its money.

Ken Johnes: 500 $ for a silly firmware upgrade? and the target audiance for this camera have been waiting eagerly for this AF upgrade .
wow, greed and trying to milk it´s customers with incremental upgrade are gonna hurt the big dogs here, both of em, look at what nikon is trying to do.

i think nikon and canon are competing with each other on how to sell less for more, while other companies are making innovative products at a fair price , no wonder these greedy top dogs have to make up for their loss with such silly act..

Some just like to be "scre*ed" the nikon way. Cough D610.

zigi_S: For anyone making money on video, this sum is chump change. For all the others, you probably didn't fork out 5500$ for the body alone. So you should complain about Nikon Df, that lacks any video for a cool 3000$.

And this camera is more than you bought.

MGJA: This is silver, but Canon 70D is gold. Heh.

Really, I am ever more convinced that dpr just hands those out in order to maximize page reloads as irate fangurls battle it out in the comments. Fine, whatever puts food on their tables is a-ok with me.

"No kidding, these days Canon's APS-C cameras can't even keep up with the image quality of little MFT sensors."

No matter what a score says. My canon apsc camera takes better photos than a 43 and m43 ever did. IQ is not only about sensor noise. Bigger format captures also more detail and colour information.

There is a difference between fixing your product and upgrade.

In reply to:

Saffron_Blaze: Of course it should be less expensive than the D800!! The D800 is pro-level in all regards not just the sensor.

The Df is a cooler looking D600 around the D4 sensor, so a moderate price increase might have been accepted (despite the missing features like video and flash) but not to this extreme. In fact in the UK you can get a D800 for less than a DF!!! That is silly.

Well in the UK you have the bankers tax to pay. And you love it!

The upgrade is much cheaper than getting a new camera. Canon has to be congratulated on this one. Not criticized.

vFunct: Only talented people can use this camera.

Untalented people have to use Sony or Canon or Olympus.

Also, it is a mark of amateurs to use cute baby mirror less cameras.

Aww how cute - a newb photographer with a mirror less camera!

Maybe one day the mirror less camera photographer will grow up and use a Reflex system like the big boys do.

Yay! We're rooting for you, cute little mirror less camera kiddos!

Have you forgoten the worst of the mirorless crowd. The Nikon 1 system?
