Boss of Sony: Tried it in the shop. Definitely feels nice in the hand. Pity about the 4/3 sensor.

If you do that much edit, you probably just started photography, because almost all old sensors are worse than m43, so I guess photography started for you around 2012 since before it was not possible to get acceptable photos.Don't worry, you'll learn how to shoot eventually?
Your reason why m43 will die could be exactly the same reason why ff will die, or apsc, and all our photos will be taken with camera phones.
Most mirrorless cameras cost less and give more ? More what ? Video ? C-AF ? Lenses ? Size ?

Obviously you have no ideea what you're talking about. You'r just inventing stuff for what sounds like a personal anger towards m43.

ProfHankD: Really a very impressive camera, especially for video -- which seems to be where u4/3 shines. However, the JPEGs don't seem to be as good as the raw would allow them to be, and even raw resolution per pixel isn't awesome... perhaps this is using a heavier anti-alias filter than most cameras? The still image IQ is definitely down a couple of notches from a much cheaper Sony A6000 (which DPReview rated 5% lower), especially for JPEGs, and the price-competitive A7 blows it away.

As a GH4 owner, all you say is true. But there are other reasons for getting it, a lot of them in fact, already discussed to death here on forums.

StevenE: I like this camera.
But light is like money, there never seems to be enough around. So low light performance is really important to me. Great performance at ISO 2500 and useable ISO 10,000 are big consideration. This fact alone keeps me with the 5D3. Although the A7s is really tempting, it really would just fill the 5D3 spot but with no magic lantern and fewer lens options (and the A7s is fiddly, and apparently has bizzare color artifiacts in highlights).
I'm looking forward to seeing what Canon will do with the C100 mkII (and EOS-M III for pocket-sized cam), other than that I'll consider adding the new Sony PXW-FS7.

I use m43, but if you need almost as good as it gets low light, very decent action/sports, great 1080p video, outstanding landscape, I think the D810 is the best camera outhere, and Nikon lens line-up is fantastic. I think D810 is a very underated camera for low light, but people forget the resolution it has allows for huge noise reduction to be applied compared to much lower res cameras, and also the sensor is really more sensitive at the same exposure compared to competing cameras.
If size and weight is ok, with you, I don't think there's a better camera. If you need crazy low light video, A7s for sure, but you live with lots of compromises.
For me, m43 already surpass my low light needs and sports needs, so I take the smaller size. I wish I had a bit more rsolution though.

Demon Cleaner: I'm still somewhat flummoxed by DPR's obsession with performance when compared to a full-frame camera. Most people will be weighing up whether a GH4 is worth the extra expense over something like a Canon APSC. That's where the value of the GH4 ultimately lies, and I think that comparison would be far more useful to the masses.

Filmmakers made up their minds regarding the GH4/A7s many moons ago. They don't wait 12 months for DPR to release their review.

Why ? For me is very simple. I took a look at the LX100. I shoot primary portraits, casual landscapes,and rarely daylight sports. Compared to my other m43 gears, the LX100 is much worse for landscapes (due to lower res and softer lens), too short fl for portraits and sports. Decision made in the next 10 minutes after the camera was launched.

First reason is the A7s does not shoot 4k. Nobody will buy an external recorder except the pros who deliver to clients and make money, and they are a minority amongst dpreview readers.
Other reason being a different still shooters target. GH4 is a much faster camera, A7s is a much higher IQ camera.
Other reason being overall size and weight of the system.

Useless discussions. When you know what you want, you know what you want. Comparing these cameras or asking which to get tells me that those people have no ideea what and how they shoot.

,,No option to cqpture 1080 video from 4K crop region to minimize aliasing,,

Doesn't the 1080p ETC mode achieve that ?

So the pro comes only with android, but the lower spec tablet comes with the Win 8.1 option too ? It doesn't make any sense. Shouldn't the pro have the more full featured OS ?

Serious Sam: The high ISO doesn't look too bad......but consider the X-trans can do just as good or even better. I am not so sure.

Best to wait for the DPR proper review and compare under the noise SD chart.

I'm not sure the EX-2 can do much more. It lacks 4K video (Iwant 4K) but more importantly the 1080p video is a joke on the EX-2. You also get a f/1.7 lens, and it is also a zoom, covering from classic landscape to classic portraiture. You also get a much better AF system. I won't comment about iq based on a one camera jpegs. I hope it will be good.

On Fujifilm X100T Overview preview (612 comments in total)
In reply to:

venancio: I got carried away by the FUJI marketing guys when they claimed that the X series is the LEICA alternative... so I waited for a LEICA full frame alternative and just got iteration after iteration of 16mp APSC... I guess what the marketing guys showed was that FUJI is the LEICA of 16 mp APSC... something that's almost as good as a full frame... so this X100T could be it... but if FUJI could only make a full frame, they can completely claim that this full frame is almost as good as a medium format camera, and that could make a lot of guys like me happier... and FUJI does not have to be pigeon-holed as a LEICA wanna be anymore...

I will only buy one when it'll have a large format sensor. FF just does not cut it for me, is too damn tiny.

On Samsung NX1 First Impressions Review preview (727 comments in total)
In reply to:

Miki Nemeth: I'd be very much surprised, if the in-focus hit rate of this camera at 15fps on a moving subject would be better than 1 fps. Exactly like A6000, and any other mirrorless cameras. This is the thousandth announcement from a mirrorless maker that they solved the problem of efficient AF-C. Since I don't believe AF on mirrorless cameras, I wonder how efficiently focus peaking is implemented in NX1? Does it support touch-to-magnify? All during video recording? Is the screen/EVF fast enough for focus peaking ((moderately) fast) moving subjects, while shooting MF 15fps? The worst scenario would be to get an NX1 with crappy AF-C (100 fps/1000 cross AF point mean nothing) as well as crappy focus peaking for moving subjects. I hope I am wrong.

I have the GH4 and continous AF really works at 7.5 fps, I got over 90% in focus shots. There are times when it completely misses a burst, so it's not that reliable as a dslr but it does work well. And yes, that's with a telephoto lens.

In reply to:

lacikuss: Canon nailed it!

Excellent for 90% of point and shoot users (who don't care about EVF but do care about 100mm reach),

not so for 5% of users who want to take this as a dslr substitute for travel (these care about EVF and don't care about 100mm),

and meaningless for the last 5% who just can't compromise between EVF or 100mm.

That sound right. Except that those 90% P&S users don't buy this kind of camera. Even Sony told us that. This cameras are mostly step down (in size for dslrs and serious amators) than step up (for P&S shooters)

In reply to:

beavertown: Strange DXO Mark always bashes Canon's sensors. But the 5D Mark III produces better IQ than the newly released D810 in terms of colours, sharpness, noise performance both in JPG and RAW.

As much as I love the Mark III, it doesn't even come close in any IQ aspect to the D800

I'm having so much fun reading Francis Carver bs, every time a new idiot rises above all others idiots. I bet he's no more than 15.

Anyway, can't wait to get my hands on this camera.

Well done, Olympus, now can we have 25p/50p for us in PAL country ? 30p videos look very weird on a 50HZ TV

mick232: Full-frame has reached the consumer market. If there was still any doubt about that, here's the proof.

In film days, even cheap plastic disposable cameras were full frame.

d3xmeister: They made something wonderful and they screwed it up with the stupid dial locks. What kind of an idiot bump a dial out of position and does not notice when the dial is right in its face ? The kind of idiot who has no ideea what is doing, but somehow these idiots have managed to screw things for all of us.

Here's an ideea: Turn off your camera while it is in a bag !!!! Here's another one: Glimpse at your setting before you shoot !!! Here's yet another one: Don't buy a camera with a faulty dial !!! Or take it back if it's loose ! I never ever accidentally bumped a dial and I owned and used a LOT of cameras.

I love that Fuji, Pentax, Olympus and Panasonic are teaching Nikon and Canon how to design cameras. But Fuji really is on top of the game.

I'm romanian. The images are very nice, and I don't find them offensive. That said, nowadays you really have to travel a lot and look hard to find such things. These picture kinnda illustrate romania between 1992-1997.
