007peter: Right Tool for the Right JOB. OPTICAL VIEWFINDER is a requirement for serious sports shooting, that is why DSLR will never be replaced by mirrorless. However, Panasonic G7's 4K Photo mode bring about a new solution to shooting sports by FILMING 4K instead. Naturally, you still can't do rapid panning due to rolling shutter, it is still a fantastic solution for capturing action with mirrorless. I would be interested in reading a future article from you if you ever get your hand on a Panasonic G7.
Sorry but thats not true, i shoot surf with an A77 at 500mm without any problem with lags, blackouts or whatever and my evf os not one of the best arround! I dont know what evfs you guys shoot, but normally people o says what you are saying dont have any experience with evf... My main problem with evf was sunlight, but solve it with with a bigger eyecup...
ventur: my question is:
does this bring a real world problem or its all a theoretical problem?
just saying this because I haven't seen any problem with that, just talk...
this is confusing me, because DxOmark just rated the A7rII the best sensor ever tested.
I see some minor artifacts at 100% ( or 200%?) magnification pixel piping, in a JPEG (compressed format), after a raw conversion (different converters, different results for different brands)...
I also used to use cRAW on my A700 without any problems
from a old topic (2007) in dpreview:
" ...you will never see the difference. CMS (color management) conversion, Bayer demosaicing, Gamma Correction, conversion to 8 bit formats (for display and printing), and (if used) jpeg compression, will have a MUCH bigger effect on the final output then cRAW compression would ever have!
The truth is that getting the image from your subject to your output (display or print) is actually a very lossy process in of itself, no matter how you store the raw image data."
my question is:
Esstee: The reason I won't touch another Sony camera.
and if you do, I doubt you'll see the difference in the raws
captura: There is no upcoming A7000. Just a rumor with no source to back it up.
the probability of Sony releasing the sucessor of the A6000 its way higher than the probability of Canon releasing a new EOS-M lens...
I miss the old days... when everybody bashed Sony for the lack of lenses...
now I have more full frame lenses for my A7 (a 2 year old system) than EOS-M and Nikon 1 (4 years old?) all together
57even: Don't get all the complaints. Its a nice competent camera and an obvious travel choice for Canon users.
The sensor used should give it great AF, and there is an EVF option. Sure, some of the dedicated competition has more functionality, but anything better is either old (A600) or quite a lot more expensive.
Personally, I am glad to see Canon making large sensor mirrorless cameras. I still think Nikon read this market wrong, having tried and failed to get on with the 1 series, which are no cheaper despite the smaller sensor.
this camera is only 6 month younger then the A5100 (its direct competitor), A5100 its a superior and cheaper camera... more then 30 lens available, Canon has 4? you are right, canon are predictable... and that's not a good thing in this scenario.
photomedium: If I was working for Sony I'd be laughing at the news. First you don't sell, then you decide to sell...why? Is Canon using the US to dump his waste? People are wondering...what a blunder.After years of tired old sensors tech, even the marketing department at Canon is showing signs of fatigue.
it was less then 1% some years ago, so it seems pretty amazing to me...
they now have the highest score of both camera (A7rII) and lens (55/1.8, just after the 2 Otus)on DXOMark, not bad in my point of view...
Miron09: Leica owners I happened to know since the Seventies had many technical grievances, like wrongly adjusted meters, shoddy craftsmanship, etc. Leica never recovered from the Leica M5 mishap. The lenses sometimes offer exceptional quality, but the bodies were put together with second rate parts, in Portugal, Malaysia, etc.
no, but i've saw and read some news and enterviews (some with the Leica Portugal CEO), where they said that Leica totally depends on the Portuguese facturies (last year they opened a new one), they even send portuguese workers/technicians to germany so they can teach them... all the mechanical parts of a M9 are made and assembled in Portugal
nop, around 90% of a Leica M is made in Portugal, they have a factory in Famalicão city since 1973... the final assembly is made in germany
GoneMirrorless: IBIS reality check.The 3 DSLR companies that offer IBIS are Pentax, Olympus, Sony/Minolta.The 2 DSLR companies that do not are Canon and Nikon.
While I think it is a nice feature, it sure seems to have jinxed DSLR sales. Sony and Olympus no longer make DSLRs!
history lesson: why Canon and Nikon dont have IBIS?
they started sabilizing lenses in the FILM days, so stabilizing in the lenses was the only way possible, with digital revolution that limitation was over and companies that didnt have a bunch of legacy tecnology from the film era started to try other aproaches (like the Minolta with th Dynax 7D)
in a future, not very far away, Nikon and Canon will also stop making DSLR
bgbs: This camera is going to drive yet another nail in the Canon's coffin.
does numbers are not bad for Sony, not many years ago they had less then 1% of market share!
and do you remember Kodak?
HMeYe: $2499 for an f4 mid range zoom !?!?!?! this is crazy ... better stick to my Leica M9 system !
this is a video lens, do you prefer your leica system for video??? ahahah
Dazzer8888: Damn, that's a nice lens for the A7
its a video dedicated lens
ET2: WHere is FS7 announcement? That's E-Mount camera
hands on: http://vimeo.com/105937275
nikon power: IMO, most credit and praise to Sony should go to Carl Zeiss and his lens.
like most of Nikon's credits should go to sony sensors, what would be a D800 without sony?
1drey: Uh, and after release of new model based on this sensor Sony will produce a couple of lenses... in a year or so. And a couple more - during the next three years.
more then the older EOS-M has
Max Savin: Sigma f1.4 for Nikon: 23.46 oz (1.466 pounds)
A7r camera: 14.36 oz35mm Sony FE f2.8: 4.23 oz.
Backpacking 20-30 miles on rough trails and overland. Which would you carry?
ok, you can carry weight, but you'll travel slower, make shorter distances, and it will be harder to walk/climb on difficult terrain!
and every mile you make the heavier it feels, and more energy you'll spend and more water youll have to carry...
weight always matter, unless you photograph at home!
AmirhosainD90: As you can see, it's obvious that all of these shots are extremely manipulated. So this is CG challenge, not photography challenge!I'm hero, if I could take a super shot by proper selection of subject, frame, exposure, speed, Angle, ... right on the scene and submit my shot SOOC. Everyone can sit behind his laptop and render an artificial design better than these by "3D Max", "Photoshop", "Corel", ... even without a camera.At last, photographers should separate their ways from graphistes!
by your standards Ansel Adams didn't make photography either right? he was the king of "Photoshop" of its time, but that doesn't make him less photographer, does it?
