On Sony Alpha 7S in low-light: See video at ISO 409,600 news story (233 comments in total)

I love how people complain. This camera is amazing. I want one. I'm an indie filmmaker, and would love to have the flexibility this camera will provide by allowing me to use less lighting equipment. Will I shoot at 400k? Hell, yeah! It lengthens my shooting day! If I need to shoot something that looks like dusk, and it's midnight, I can do that. I'm thinking 1600 will be absolutely spectacular, as well.

bobbarber: Two thoughts:

1) Wow!

2) Aperture was f2.8. There are a lot of cheap f1.4 film lenses out there that could be adapted, which would get another two stops!

Jeez, I hadn't thought of that... Holy crap!

People are actually criticizing this? Okay, you go on complaining while I make movies with no budget.

In reply to:

daddyo: This is actually quite impressive. Just a few years back, no one would have imagined these kinds of ISO settings, nor this kind of image quality at such settings.
That said, crappy light is still crappy light, and just because you can shoot in this light and get a discernible image is no reason to become obsessed with shooting in crummy light anymore than is absolutely necessary.
Shooting in these lighting conditions is like trying to see how many pots of coffee you can brew using the same grounds -- after a while it becomes a bad joke.

Very well put, RED.

km25: Big deal. Frist it is a movie, that is impressive, but for stills? Second the lens on adapter is F2.8. Just think a lens that is F1.2 would use iso 105k. Where would tht put a D4s. 12MPs has been past up years ago, a specially in FF. In APS-C and M43 we know of the two cameras their. It woud have served Sony much better to have cut the MP of the 36MP sensor in half for 4k movies with 18MP. Like the D4s Nikon and Canon camera. This super low light is a one trick pony, after you do some real low light stuff, then comes what. No lens and narrow use, Sony do you think before you leap?

Big deal?! Hell, yeah, it's a big deal! Can your camera do that?

On Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 Review preview (423 comments in total)

The zoom is great, no doubt, and to buy a separate lens like it would cost a fortune, but I'll put my A57 up against it any day, with my kit lens and Minolta beercan, and money left over.

On Hungarian law bans photos taken without seeking consent news story (325 comments in total)
In reply to:

Ahmet Aydogan: Here's a another instance of a laws being written by people with little or no understanding of the matter in question. I think an appropriate response could take two different forms. One method would be immediately eliminate any distribution of any images from Hungary. Another response, my preferred way, would be for everyone to shoot photos of everything and everyone in sight. Fill every social media site with as many photos of as many Hungarians as possible. The Hungarian legislative body has proven its complete incompetence in this matter.

Ahmet, that is brilliant! Yes! Flood the Internet with shots of every Hungarian! That'd show whatever idiot thought this up! Bravo!

Anyone who has enough money and is actually going to buy one of these, I have an indiegogo independent film campaign going!

On Sony Alpha 7 Review preview (1594 comments in total)

I just think that in this day and age, there is no excuse for substandard JPEGs. Yes, I know shooting RAW is great, but there's no reason, with today's tech, to have anything less than great JPEGs, especially at this price, and I'm a Sony fan!

On Mid-range Mirrorless camera roundup 2013 article (209 comments in total)
In reply to:

Richard Franiec: Still no love for EOS M?
Possibly smallest and (currently) least expensive camera with APS-C size sensor.
Incredible line up of supported (via adapter) EF/EF-S lenses.
You can get the kit with a nice lens for much less than any of the cams mentioned in this round up. In fact it is less expensive than most advanced fixed lens compacts mentioned in "leave the DSLR" section.
We all know about the M's quirks but even slight mention would be nice and well deserved.

A friend of mine bought an M cheap and has taken some phenomenal shots with it. I don't understand how this little gem has been overlooked!

On Lens reviews update: test data for the Nikon 58mm f/1.4G news story (221 comments in total)

For this kind of money, with today's technology and Nikon's expertise, the lens should be perfect. If they're not going to come out with something that just stomps everything else into the dust, which they should be able to, this lens simply isn't necessary.

That sounds fantastic!

In reply to:

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!

How insulting can you get? You, sir, are simply rude.

I love retro styling as much as the next person, but isn't a camera about taking pictures?

Sony has taken the lead. They are winning. I keep reading and hearing about other companies finally coming up with things to challenge Sony, like new AF systems that rival Sony. That sure sounds like Sony got there first. I love my A57; even with the kit lens it's AWESOME, and I can't wait to get my hands in an A7!

DDWD10: I keep telling my friends... now is a GREAT time to get into serious photography.

We really do live in the Golden Age. So many great choices, a lot of great prices, so many cameras that take great pictures!
