On Sony announces Alpha a5100 compact mirrorless camera article (106 comments in total)
In reply to:

Fazal Majid: It's 2014. A camera's video features are not "impressive" if it's not 4K.

Your not understanding 4K!
It's out for me, No Microphone port or Headphone port. Sony what are you thinking?

In reply to:

Jogger: Im surprised that DPR is impressed with the 4k video. The reviews that ive read have not been impressed with it at all. I guess its another checkbox to check off.. but, it would have been better to provide higher bit rate 1080p.

The GH4 owner will have more flexibility to massage the video in post as compared to the video of the FZ1000, Keep in mind that Panasonic is not going to rape it's sales of the GH4, I guarantee it. I wouldn't be a betting man.

You better check out other FZ1000 4k video files to your GH4, and when there available you will see the difference, I guarantee it!

DPR does not know video! Try massaging 100k 4K video in post compared to your GH4 in post,

Higuel: 3clicks and i still can't read the review!

The 4K video is CRAP! DPR! Quit spreading garbage!
3840x2160 is not even 4K!!! 4096x2160 is real 4K ! Also, 100-MBPS is not impressive at all! It's the same as 50 MBPS at 1080P, 200-MBPS would be impressive!

I tell you what DPR, you need to hire someone who knows video! or don't even bother to talk about specs or opinions.

Nukunukoo: We have two RX10s for video (attached to Ninja 2s) and for a few months now, I can say that it sure matches and even edges out the 5D3 especially on low light! They're great on gymballs especially with their weight and remotely zoomable lens. They are not perfect though, sub-par focusing methods and sure would be great if it can use a touch focus system, especially via tablets. A better CODEC like the RX100M3 would be very welcome, and a faster zoom would be fab.

Do that on the next RX10 and you have a Wedding Video Killer!

Many seem to favor zoom length over lens quality. The zoom range is fine for me. I'd take fixed aperture any time.

Wrong again Panasonic breath! RX10 delivers superior video! The 4k does not count!

Well Lars, I look at it this way what you find usable, to me is crap! I just have higher quality levels than your review here., The video is also way over compressed. I know what I see and how it holds up in Post. that's the bottom line!

In reply to:

Menneisyys: Smearing is awful even at base ISO. In no way a contest to the Nokia 808 WRT plain still IQ.

I *really* hope Samsung comes out with a Nokia 808-alike - with a huge sensor and great (prime) lens. Just another branch of their Zoom / Camera series, with photo buffs wanting a prime-"only", large-sensor, high-end phone-based camera would be a killer. The current lineup (unless you do need zoom)? Not so much, regrettably.

All in all, I won't ditch my Nokia 808 for the S5. The 808 is a perfect non-smart (I in no way use the Net on it, particularly not for browsing - the Achilles' heel of Symbian) phone for me. And, when better IQ is needed, I take my Fuji X-E1...

Not for video!

In reply to:

Tord S Eriksson: It is not surprising that drones that can do more serious photography also cost a lot more, often equipped with eight, or sixteen, props!

Using slow-flying model aircraft is often much better, but they can't stop in midair, of course!

Oh Yes they can! Many Multi-copter units have a hover configuration that all you have to do is press a button! Add the fact of 3 axis Gimble to the mix and rock steady!

I agree 100% I don't have a 5D3 to compare the RX10 to, but I do have a GH3 and the RX10's video at 60fps at 28mbps, is just as good or maybe a shade better than my GH3 video at 60fps and All Intra at 70mbps. It just goes to show you that having a lens that can is truly designed and tweaked for the sensor, can make a big difference. Sometimes the video from the RX10 gives a very dimensional look. Personally, I would like to see this style of camera in a MFT or APSC format. I can shoot 90% percent of my video and stills with the 24-200 focal length.I go my RX10 for $1000.00 on ebay. I think were sarting to see on whole new camera segment that's gonna get popular!

There is another feature that dp review is forgetting. The RX10 is weather proof, and the FZ1000 is not. I think Panasonic was betting that more people would want 4K video over the other features the RX10 has, that the FZ1000 dosen't.

I'm a video guy, and a Ziess lover! The RX10 lens just rocks!

Also, the 4k video that the FZ1000 is giving you is crap at 30fps. If I'm going to get a camera with 4K, it's going to have 60fps, and full sensor scanning. and Panasonic is not going to give you that because they would start to rob there GH4 sales. WHich is the Camera I'm getting, soon I hope.

No Headphone port! No Audio input levels! Bad decision Panasonic!

4K is a super luxury feature that not many will use. But needing audio input levels, and a headphone jack will be missed by many and will slow the sales of this camera when compared to the Sony RX10. Also, RX10 has a way better lens! faster always wins over reach 90% of the time! No ND filters. No full sensor scan!

It needs to be cheaper!

That said always good to see a different approach as long as subjects are not tormented in any way.
