Mike FL: So, SONY HQ projected that its Sensor unit's revenue will be topped + down turn ahead in the near future.
It is time to sale it for the top dollar before too later as SONY did to Olympus which was a good job BTW.
that makes no sense. try again.
Interesting how neutral the color was on the Sony vs the Nikon. Didn't expect that. Very impressive.
Sunworshiper: I thought I would try capture 1 but the trial version is not the same as the full version. So I downloaded the full but couldn't get on with it - mainly because of the library features but also it isn't as good or intuitive as Lightroom in my opinion. I stopped using it after 3 days and reverted to LR. But anyone else wanting to try the full version please note..if you do this Phase 1 will ABSOLUTELY NOT give you a refund. Buried in their Ts and Cs they stipulate NO REFUND.1
That makes no sense at all. Trial is exactly the same as the full version. I activated my trail to the paid version, no difference.
As for learning it, why would they refund you because you couldn't learn it? That's your fault. No offense but there are middle school kids in Seattle WA that use C1 pro with stunning results. And the wealth of tutorials for C1 pro online it makes it easy to get to grips with.
I would suggest another attempt. Nothing against lightroom because that is great software also, but your post is quite baffling.
sportyaccordy: Anyone know any good digital camera history sites? This stuff is kind of fascinating
Your reading one right now.
igor_s: I do not think that the FF video mode has any advantage in high ISO performance b/c of pixel binning.
palie: thanks guys for your well-informed and sincere responses to my first ms. a lot of what you say is valid and correct. but i think my essential point remains. push up shutter speed to counter camera shake, and you lose depth of field and ISO. I don't feel like choosing between three shutter options before i make a shot. i also don't like the idea of yet more moving bits and pieces in the cam grinding away and twisting the sensor around on various axes. and yes - of all the sony A7 models, the 12 mp A7s is by far the best for hand held stills work ... the fundamental truth remains that the single biggest cause of image degradation is camera shake, and that the effects of camera shake rises as pixel pitch increases. and second, that every inch gained in terms of effective exposure capability - giving you more room in respect of the old triad of shutter speed, aperture and ISO - is worth its weight in platinum, never mind gold ... ask any working photographer ...
stabilization can be turned off.
palie: now i'm on a roll. what practical price all that detail in any case ? if we're talking giclee, you can blow up a 6mp image to a massive size before it begins to pixellate. step back to a normal viewing angle, and they disappear in any case. litho ? sorry to tell you this, but printers' RIPs write all images down to the equivalent of 300 dpi ... that effectively means you can shoot a double page spread in national geographic with a 10 year old canon rebel ... and unless you specifically tell it not do so, the highest quality adobe acrobat PDF preset for litho printing turns your precious raw based photoshop file into - wait for it - a JPEG !!! think i'm joking ? ask a printer ...
whats your point?
alcaher: Great pictures... These animal have something special and i would consider them enigmatic animals. the level of comunication between themselves is complex... Only mermaids undersand their comunication according to a documentary in animal planet
NoMirror99: Sony, you have a set of great cameras! Now get a great OS for the camera: Bring iOS with touch screen to my cameras!

Sdaniella: Sony A7R II BSI Sensor Boss? No. Hardly.To make "low light king" or "high-res + low light king" (together; not separately)one expects to scrutinize capabilities near the limit, not way down in easier less extreme scenarios:upscaling images for finest detail retention (display viewability+upscalability): not excessive downscaling = lossy normalization (to hide lack of detail; detail distortion; excessive noise; poor noise reduction (classic "zombie-scars" NR from Sony: both non-BSI & BSI sensors)
e.g.low-res normalization = small light displays & small "large" prints (old norms)vshigh-res normalization = large higher rez light displays & large prints (wall size and beyond) = new norms
those who regularly downscale 2 to 4 times original size (half to quarter or tinier) to hide noisy (or poor NR or poor fine detail) images for low light scenery, are avoiding large visual presentations, and taking refuge in small "large" prints (if you can hold it in your hands fully open)
Reilly Diefenbach: Excellent response by Sony!
I would love an 80mb file if it contains extra detail.
Remember that many pros shoot in a studio or controlled area or low volume that can't afford medium format. The Nikon D810 or Canon 5DR...and now the Sony a7RII are excellent options for us.
nerd2: I think now sony can release a5 (or whatever), with recycled 24MP FF sensor in non-sealed body lacks EVF, asking for $600-700. Oh and non-premium range of prime lenses (sony brand $200 50mm 1.8) too. And all small MILCs will instantly go extinct.
what does that have to do with this article?
RRJackson: Why do these companies keep delivering 8-bit 4:2:0 codecs? Is there no market for a camera with a robust codec?
You can buy a BlackMagic product, Sonys higher end cinema cameras, Canons higher end cameras or hack the 5DMK3 etc.
There are plenty of options for you.
Sdaniella: New SONY Alpha A7S II:http://www.sony.net/Products/di/en-us/products/nf9b/index.html
Sony "14-bit" RAW output remains drawn from lossy compressed sensor recording from 11bit+7bit offset Sony ARW 2.3 format ... no change from before
but offers new flatter gamma picture profiles (less faux-high-contrast)
At least, now, Sony calls their Canon Powershot Exposure Simulation Live Preview (ES-LV) a distinct Sony name:
"Real-time image-adjustment display" (LCD or EVF)On my old Sony Cybershot DSC-R1, Sony called "Live Preview*" :D*If, OFF, it was in "Framing Preview" (aka: AutoGain LV)
Shes trying to play dpreview police and is fighting the staff constantly - she thinks she is correcting them, but everything she posts is nonsense.
that doesn't even make any sense daniella!
your posts have to be a joke. Nobody types like that.
marc petzold: A manual focus lenses, old legacy glass dream machine with 5-Axis IBIS, and big, fat pixels. Someday Sony....2nd Hand. :) 12 MP are plenty much enough. Look at the 5D, D700 & A7S.
One other exciting option is renting online. Depending on where you live if you can't afford the a7sMK2 many online sites rent the Sony lineup very cheap. Fun way to enjoy legacy glass while you save up.
Rishi Sanyal can you just ban the Sdaniella account? She trolls and trolls posting misinformation constantly and is nothing but combative with Dpreview staff and other members.
Either she is clueless or messing around at your expense. Either way she is a waste of everyone's time.
Thank you so much for reading the specs for us Daniella! You are incredible. Best dpreview member ever!
J A C S: "...With a 24-200mm F2.8 lens..."?
you are getting confused with the crop factor - the focal range is correct. remember this camera has a 1 inch sensor.
