tongki: I don't trust Sony flash system,
I used HVL-58 system in the past,
It was the most stupid, strange, not dependable flash system I ever use
* no FEL and no one from Sony fans knows about this and they always mentioned how great and smart Sony flash system, I forgot what they called it
* hotshoe problem (taken from Minolta), tilt it up and down and it will become firing or not
* strange head rotation on HVL-58
* optical wireless sometimes and from 4 units there are some not firing and I am sure it is within range
* overheat problems and too quick
* battery drained AA very quick
* no indicator when overheat and shut down

I don't trust Sony system anymore

> and you're ready to pass judgement?

just a disgruntled user expressing his bitterness...

the only wish is that 3rd party vendors somehow might be able to make it compatible with Sony gear... Nissin, Phottix, Godox, now Sony... so much segmention in radio TTL

Gesture: No direct AF point control

How does a serious, high-end camera omit that?

> How does a serious, high-end camera omit that?

just like that, by not seriously targeting fast action (and on photographer's side of the camera too) yet

the more negatives aired publicly the more incentives for manufacturer to make at least something better in the next camera... no more sugarcoating !

Sony, are you taking note?

> Sony, are you taking note?

yes, just compare the market share of Sony vs Ricoh (both Ricoh and Pentax brands)...

On article What difference does it make? Sony uncompressed Raw (618 comments in total)
In reply to:

Chris Joy: If you have Sony's ear, how about small fixes like assigning crop mode to a custom button or the Fn menu? How about making it easier to move the AF point? Or how about speeding up the process of writing images to the card? The long exposure noise issue doesn't appear to have been solved either.

I'm glad the raw fix is coming just to shut up the whiny pixel peepers that don't even own the camera, but there are some real usability improvements that can be made as well.

> Better to have it not only Fn|C# but Memory recall.

true too, but Sony prefers small steps I think

switch between forced APS-C mode and auto mode for FF FE lenses and also switch between Settings Effects ON and OFF __MUST__ be available for Fn buttons assignment !!!

lacikuss: Not enough for me I'll wait for next year's a7 S III with ISO of 1,000,000 and 24MP.

We know Sony will keep updating yearly until they destroy CANIKON somehow, so I'll seat patiently and wait for the right bait.

> What are you going to use until then? I am just curious!

he will use his trusty cell phone camera !

> No phase detect AF so the seemingly impressive -4EV low light focusing capability might not be that impressive after all...

find any dSLR that can focus across the frame @ -4EV with f2 lens @ ISO100... may be you will find Canon 6D with just one AF point in the center rated @ Center AF Point: EV -3 to 18 ? or Nikon D4s ? -2 to +19 EV ... 1Dx ? the same... dSLR simply can't focus at all where A7 or Panasonic GH4 for that matter can, and w/o being tied to a few fixed AF points

huyzer: Very cool.

it won't... you need to buy at least a used spectrophotometer (clean the dust from it) - and the cost will be less ... try something like EFI ES-1000 Spectrophotometer for example, they go cheap on eBay...

On article Analysis: Sony a7R II and RX100 IV autofocus systems (752 comments in total)
In reply to:

Class A: Could you not have chosen an AF point manually in your first test? The vast amount of shots were unusable with the nose being in focus but not the eyes.

It would be extremely disappointing if this were everything the camera could achieve with third-party glass.

BTW, if a lens requires AF microadjustments with a regular PDAF system then it will need the same adjustment with a sensor-based PDAF system. The only problem the latter can avoid is a constant offset which a regular PDAF system can compensate with one global adjustment as well.

If the A7R II is immune against FF/BF issues then because it employs CDAF in the final stages of focus acquisition.

> BTW, if a lens requires AF microadjustments with a regular PDAF system then it will need the same adjustment with a sensor-based PDAF system.

not if there is misalignment with a separate optical path for off sensor PDAF, because the issue might be not in the lens but w/ submirror assembly (that directs some light down to off sensor PDAF module) or off sensor PDAF module itself - in those case on sensor PDAF will not have issues... and CDAF is not totally immune to BF/FF - if the lens has focus shift and focusing is done wide open then even CDAF can get BF/FF
