Hey DP staff! Great video! Could you take the NX1 to a sports event at night? Want to see how it performs!
Anyone here knows if the Continuous Drive speed of 5 fps is with AF-C? or just the usual AF-S first shot and the rest AF locked?
FocusBogus: This Alpha series has a problem: A7, a7, α7 or Alpha 7?
My suggestion is that it should be named to "Alpha", like Cyber Shot. No more hassle with α.
simple, it's called ILCE-7M2
DavidNJ100: Wow...a real camera. Allows the use of Sony Alpha lenses which don't have optical IS. This includes Tamron 24-70/2.8 and 70-200/2.8.
It matches the competition for in-camera HD recording...unclear if the HDMI is 4:2:2. No price, but if it AF is fast and it holds to the D610/6D price range, it could be interesting.
I would have liked a better interface to Canon lenses that let them autofocus at full phase detect speed.
Still...a powerful new entry with an EVF and most of the advantages that brings (Sony didn't add false colors and waveform monitor).
But the current LA-EA4 is crap. All the PDAF points are clustered in the center. They just took an APS-C AF module and adapted it to the adapter.
Dpreview wrote this"...and the addition of a front dial."
Wait what? They just changed the position and physical shape of the previous front dial! Do your research!
Japanese economy is shrinking...let's release a special edition camera for it!
sportyaccordy: So can I use this on my C3?
The text says "Multi-interface Hotshoe", not the "Smart Accessory Port" that the NEX-C3 uses... So, no.
Those rebadges were a bad idea from the very beggining. Actually, every single rebadged camera is a bad idea... but works sometimes. Look at Leica, they're doing fine with their Panasonic cameras.
Alright! Time to make a new comparison between the Nikon 80-400, Sony 70-400 and the new 100-400. Previously, the Canon was no match for the new lenses, but this promises a lot! I'm not a Canon shooter, but I can tell this is a good thing for all brands shooters (Prices will definitely go lower)
tabloid: I think apple does a pro service…but you have to pay for it.
I use a A65 and as a full time professional photographer…Its more than ample for what I need.
There is no such thing as a "pro camera" .There is a simply camera that a professional photographer find adequate for the job.
@tabloidBUT BUT BUT the Sony Pro-meter says otherwise. If you don't have TWO Sony fullframe camera, you're not a Pro!
Any update on pricing of the 40-150mm f/2.8?
Time to compare NPS, CPS and SIPS (haha this sounds too funny). Ok, seriously. I'm a Sony shooter, but I really want to know how this compare to other proven and tested services from Canon and Nikon. Any insights?
Ok guys, time to put your bets. Who says DPReview Staff gets the 7DMk.2 review done before the a77mk.2????
Cheng Bao: For those complaining about AVCHD and no XAVC codec:
XAVC code is licensed by sony only, so it is fair to any company other than sony not offering XAVC
But AVCHD is also licensed by Sony AND Panasonic...
2nd picture should have won the overall competition...but maybe that's just me and the judges know way more.
AndreSJ: Samsung seem to be doing what they did with Mobile and TV's and making a product for every possible consumer
That 300mm Sure is going to push other manufacturers to stup up on their lens designs. I couldnt live without my iFunction is anymore haha
Rooru S: If they want professionals to take Sony seriously, they shouldn't stop R&D of A-mount lenses. There is a bunch of lenses that need an update quickly and there are serious holes in the A-mount lineup (for example, a set of constant F4 zoom lenses to complement the SAL1635Z, SAL2470Z, SAL70200G).
And if we talk about Camera bodies...where is the 1DX/D4s competitor that many professionals prefer to use? What about a proper D800 competitor with a proper AF module? Right now the a99 is only competing against the D600/6D and is losing.
Right now the Minolta Engineers are thinking what the hell they're doing with Sony after they're leaving A-mount in the dust...
Where is Contax now? Are they still making cameras? No? Well... Canon and Nikon are still making a lot of money from the professional Bussiness in massive quantities while Sony is struggling and if they keep focusing only in E-mount, I see a dark future for Sony.
Did you check about the corporate tax differences between Japan and South Korea? That thing alone can make a huge difference in favor of Korean manufacturers.
If you have two products, each one performs the same function equally, the company that will win, is the one that can make more money with less investment and expenses. Now, Which one I will buy? The one that cost more, because in my experience with Samsung, (2 washing machines) has proven to be fatal compared to Panasonic...but even If I prefer the one that doesn't break down (a japanese company in this case), the company that will be making more money, is the korean. Why? See again the corporate tax difference between Japan and South Korea.
plamens: Except 28/2 all of the lenses are HUGE!!The main concept of the mirrorless is the small size, but with these HUGE lenses..Absolutely meaningless!!!They are even bigger and heavier than the same DSLR lenses!Sony, please consider to make small lenses, like olympus, panasonic, fujifilm and samsung stuffs! That because I would not buy any of them! Maybe except 28/2:)
Abortabort: the Samsung (50-150 F2.8) is smaller than the 70-200 F4...
peevee1: Still don't have 85mm or pro zooms, yet making ANOTHER 35mm.And if their 35/2.8 is ridiculously overpriced at $800, I hate to think how much they would ask for 4 times more light.
Overpriced? Say that to Zeiss and their manual-focus, manual-aperture ZM 35mm f/2.8.
