On article Video: A quick look at the Sony a6300 (211 comments in total)
In reply to:

TomHudsonVisual: Ah man, for APS-C format it will be a hard choice for me between this and the Nikon D500.

I`d get both..

Raziel Orlando: If you wanted IBIS, the camera will be priced $1300 or more. At that price you could buy an used A7II with IBIS and full-frame sensor.

Why would it cost 1300? , if Olympus can bung a top 5-axis sytem in the cheapo EPL7 why cant sony in their flagship APS-C A6300 ?

Hmm, what happened to the A6100 and 6200 ? .......... No IBIS or touchscreen are the downies :(. "Copper wiring" the Joke - LOL, and the new fancy AF system and box-ticking 4K are the headline features of this newcomer ..

Personally I didn`t find the AF SPEED in single AF in the A6000 lacking, it only was poor in low light, that`s where the new AF update will be important so long as its a significant improvement , otherwise keep your A6000`s folks. the lack of IBIS is a bit of a killer considering all their current A7s have it now

24mp - great - shame they didn`t ditch X-Trans :( this would have been an excellent opportunity to do so .

AdamT: I`m normally up for these kinda things, I still have a TZ30 for casual / Video use and may even have a look at the TZ80 with its massive range but as for the TZ100 at its price, I`ll just take my GM5/14-140-II Combo which still fits in a jacket pocket .

I shoot RAW and these 1" sensor superzooms have horrific distortion / Vignetting (well the FZ1000 which only does "400mm" has, so this TZ has got to be even worse) to get it all to fit whereas the 14-140-II has a bit at the wide end, almost none past 24mm and the long end is 280mm and damn near perfect edge to edge wideopen at its longer "280mm" .. I can see your point as the GX7 is a lot larger than a GM5 and isd a struggle in the biggest coat pockets with that lens on but the GM5 merely needs a light jacket pocket ...... Each to our needs I guess

sportyaccordy: Ultra wide? More like kinda sorta wide. I was hoping this would be for FX... that would have been something worth talking about

true but times move on ..

This lens is going to have to be at least half decent at F2 to even be in the running.

This cam should have had a new superior lens, the heavily compromised G7X optic is a big disappointment in a camera of this class

In reply to:

toni2: Sony has put the game on full frame mirrorless. The game has changed.
Sorry, but it's no more on DSLRs. So say "a new full frame DSLR" is as didn't say anything.

Hobby wise yes and the A7R2 sensor is fantastic but the bodies and as a system simply aren`t up to a lot of pro work day in day out.. the A7 series bodies simply aren`t tough or ergonomic enough by any stretch of the imagination, the flash shoe is vry weak with its compromised edge contact connector (which also compromises any weather sealing the body may have had from reports) and the glass lineup far from complete without mucking with 3rd party adapters and EOS lenses .. don`t get me wrong, I like my A7 lots but it`ll be a long time yet before any of its suceessors will let me dich DSLRs in my Work regime ..

The build, body and design of the Panasonic GH4 is far closer to the mark as pro tool than the fragile compromised A7 series . Hopefully an A9 will take on that form ....

On article 2015 Roundup: Interchangeable Lens Cameras around $500 (272 comments in total)
In reply to:

AdamT: The a6000 is a way better deal (UK anyway) than the relatively overpriced A5100 and the J5 , Yeah right ..... Whatever DPR - (Eyes roll) .. as others have said, the Nikon D5300 kills the lot of them for value , bang for buck and as a system ......

if I had to choose two from those , it`d be the GF7 (GM1 even better) for compactness, fantastic kit lens and the superb lens system .. and the Fuji XA1 for being a Fuji with a proper sensor (not Shonky X-Trans in the XA cameras) , decent kit lens and excellent lens system ......

DPR screw up yet another supertest

There`s not a massive price diff in the UK between the A6000 and 5100 , in fact the 5100 is a ripoff in comparison . the GF7 (and all the other M43s) have one big advantage over the A5100 , they have superb kit lenses for "one-lensers" and for "expanders" the rest of the lens range is excellent and affordable with loads of decent zooms and cheap primes - the lens situation of Sony APS-C Mirrorless is sad in the extreme . shame because the A6000 is a bargain (the 5100 is NOT)

AdamT: Wow.. Canon in the G5X Taking styling cues from the least aesthetically designed mirrorless cameras (the Sony A7) ..... the M10 has regressed back to the annoying M1 soapbar design (but has it finally got resizable AF point which the G / G1X series have had since the G7 ?) ........ G9X looks like finally a worthy successor to the S90 (which the S100/110 never were) shame they missed off the command dial

The A7 is a square block with a pent-styled lump and a grip stuck on the same as the G5X . diff is that at least sony didn't copy the Nikon P7100`s weird tacked on front command dial ...... Canon`s G3 and G5 had grips which looked like afterthoughts too , the G1 and G2 were more integrated as was the G6

I still can`t believe that Canon perpetuated the massive fixed size AF point in the M3 - they really need to get their compact camera department to design these things and not the DSLR section .. they still act like DSLRs in live view mode and that is NOT a good thing (nor acceptable) .. I`ll keep my G1X Mk1 but will take a look at the G9X as a repkacement for the Nikon P330 if its not ludicrously overpriced like the RX100 models with the decent lens are (Mk3 and 4)

AdamT: DXO thing wins best Mobile device ? DP review work with DXO in the reviews so expect this ludicrous choice on those grounds - there certainly isn`t any other reason why this joke of a thing should even be on the list

Of course Sony did the whole Mobile-phone camera addon with the far superior QX100 (an RX100 basically) and the QX1 (a NEX mount) and no one took any interest so the DXO effort isn`t going to garner any interest despite the sycophantic award here

I can`t imagine anyone wanting to use a Go Pro as a camera especially as the phone used as the viewscreen will likely take better stills to begin with !! .

In reply to:

AdamT: Yep, it`s lossless compressed that`s needed - like canon and Nikon have had for decades

it was actually about 1993 and was largely made by Kodak ..

All this irrelevant arguing is a pointless waste of bandwidth anyway - the point is that Canon have had lossless compression for a very long time and so have Nikon - Looks like Sony used to have also ---- so why go to lossy compression ????? . that`s what needs sorting, not 100Mb + uncompressed files
