About me:

Photography is a side-line, fashion photography as a job (won awards), portraiture and street photography as an "amateur" hobby. Strangely I "create" pictures, but on the long term, I discovered other things in my pictures, I am not constructing them or choosing them, when I look at the past 20 years, they have things in common, the creation is probably more than the creator, even an hidden part of him...

Good upgrade. But I think that people interested in it won't like the video or live-view features, and would have preferred a simplified camera, to take pictures the old way.

Wonderful photographies that witness a state of our world.

On Sony SLT-A77 II Review preview (487 comments in total)

Compared to the Nikon D610 & D750, that seems to share a similar sensor, the Sony STL-A77 II seems to be incredibly noisy, with at least 2EV difference when putting it on ISO 1600 and D610 or D750 at ISO 6400!

Totally deceptive!

Mister Roboto: I would rather have a larger sensor at least 2/3 or 1 inch than invest on any lens which in the end will produce mediocre result.

+1 You are totally right!

"leading the way to DSLR performance in slim handsets" lol!

Maybe it's as good as dslr from 12years ago or more?!? lol!

In reply to:

iAPX: There's just a little problem on this camera:
with it's lens, and maybe any lense that anyone coiuld create on 2015, there's no real on-focus sharp part.

Said differently, there are 28MOP on the sensor, but the lenses are just low-pass filters and there's no improvement since 16MP APS-C sensors, definition is not resolution.

There is clearly a good example, at ISO 100, with micro-contrast forced, and nothing really sharp (as sharp on aD300 or D610 for example)

Another scene where you could see it's not sharp, where it should be.

Anyway I won't convince you, but it is just a warning it's not necessarily the killer iSamsung would it like to be ;)

Swordman: This is a total game changer and will force its competitors to up the game. It's fair to say, that in maybe another 5 years, that mirrorless will outperform DSLRs in every area other than battery life.

This is a game changerunti lyou see the picture and the "sharp" part of it. That arent sharp.

In reply to:

iAPX: IS there anything sharp, somewhere in this picture?!?

Seems the 28MP sensor deliver no more than a D300 12MP sensor

Oh I know and appreciate the per picel quality of the D300 with high-end lenses, it's one of the thing that makes me love it, event after 7 or 8years using it (it's built like a tank!), in RAW it's awesome.

Same as Nikon_D5500-ISO100-DSC_0110: even at f/7.1 ISO 100, nothing is really sharp (even if excessive sharpening is applied as in this case), proving that there's no real-world 24MP resolution on APS-C sensor.

Good demonstration on this one: Nikon_D5500-ISO100-DSC_0110

Nothing is sharp at f/4.5, even in the center of the image, proving if necessary that actual lenses could not cope with this sensor. This is a shame, Nikon (and Canon and Sony) should stay at 16Mp or less in APS-C, increasing dynamic range in low ISO and decreasing noise at high ISO, instead of producing needless Megapixels!

In reply to:

Franka T.L.: Unless there's something magical about that sensor I fail to see a point here

"Magical" seems to be for the latest sony sensors, for example on D750 or D610 where you could be sensibility-unaware, shooting at 200 ISO instead 6400ISO (as required, with -5EV), having similar noise after +5EV correction in RAW, but an incredibly high Dynamic Range.

This is "magic" for what I know, compared to old slrs (ie my D300), and it may change the way you do exposure, breaking rules that are century old!

Sensibility of the A7s sensor is also "magical" for me, and another breakthrough that open incredible possibilities that weren't available before.

misha marinsky4: Vaporware

This is 3D rendering, not "working prototype". And it shows.

It's clearly vaporware at this point!

Interesting idea, I wonder if they will use the Leica M mount from start (I would if I were them!), for Full Frame and APS-C versions.

I don't see the point for APS-C, but I see the point for Full Frame with 12MP sensor of Sony Alpha 7s, for incredibly sharp and noiseless street photography, at 6400 ISO and largely over that. Knowing that full-frames rangefinders have trouble to get in perfect focus with faster lenses and 20MP+ sensors. (there are pictures in DPReview done by real great photographers on Leica M that demonstrate that point!)
