Now this was really interesting. Way to go DPR! More videos like these focusing in experiences and results instead of too much on specs.
Donald B: what is the point of a 28mm macro lens, the designer obviously has never shot macro before.
Would you say the same about Sony E 30mm f3.5 Macro?
So at first, they made some statements saying like the camera is made only with chinese technology with no involvement from Leica (aside from giving thumbs up). And now they're saying they did almost everything in co-op.
TSeiler: I am sorry but a $5000 camera and a $15000 lens are not "regular photography equipment", that would be a cell phone camera.
By regular photography equipment he meant that you could buy it from any dedicated store. Some years ago, NASA used modified cameras "designed to be used in outer space" (because they didn't know if the cameras would survive or not, you know, you can't get a new replacement until you get back or someone sends a backup up there)
Rooru S: So it is not 'real time' live view at 8fps. Still a slideshow but with added blackout effects...too bad Sony had to simulate stuff for marketing BS.
Do you see how the pictures fades away in the same way a SLR would show with the mirror blackout? Obviously they're simulating the blackout and trying to make it look like an OVF.
alcaher: NASA sucks, they always waste alot of money and resources. Take all that money for better things to do here in our the planet.
NASA being up there is one of the reasons you can write and share your great comment with us.
@abortabort:Have you seen the video???
Now I have an answer about why Sony had to insert a black frame. Too bad it shows stills only and not a real "Live Feed".
Will have to try it myself. Could this feature be implemented on a A77M2 at 8fps and get same results? or it depends on how fast the sensor sends the signal to the processor and how fast the processor sends it to the EVF?
Video resolution? I'm more curious how much data they're capturing per second with that 755MPx camera...
Benefits of using this camera instead of blue/green background cost wise?
No one talks about Sony adding SIMULATED blackout effect. Why did they have to add blackout effect if it serves no purpose at all? Have you guys seen the video on this review? There is no movement between each blackout.
This is coming from a Sony user (both A and E mount).EDIT: It's an EVF, they don't have to make it look like an OVF if it doesn't serve any purpose at all.
So it is not 'real time' live view at 8fps. Still a slideshow but with added blackout effects...too bad Sony had to simulate stuff for marketing BS.
Robert Garcia NYC: That sensor coming to a Sony AXX near you. :)
As far as I know, Nikon never uses Sony designs on their flagships.
Mike Fewster: It looks rather similar to the Sony semi mirror design that they use in their A mount cameras that also combines mirrorless with a semi mirror and pdaf focussing. So similar that it is a bit hard to see what the excitement is about or why it should get a patent.
Not similar. This is something more similar to Fuji X100T hybrid viewfinder.
NWT: It's a shame that there aren't images of actions, eg. BIF, to demonstrate the camera's auto focus capacity at its long range. That will be the key selling point.
Sadly, AF performance isn't a key selling point for the RX10 series. If you want AF performance, look for Nikon DL series.
In other words... New Nikon DL24500 would focus faster at 500mm compared to RX10M3 at 500mm and beyond?
Glenn Barber: If not said previously - the most important question is - will this now work reliably and fast enough on a Sony A7RII or 6300 for BIF
@rsf3127:...Which relies on DSLR technology. So you end up shooting with a mirror in front of the sensor. End result, you're shooting with DSLR technology.
@rsf3127:What if I told you...that by putting a mirror in front of your mirrorless it turns into a SLT camera that relies on DSLR technology?
Noorar: phase detect for the a6000 would have made my day , it would be "nice" from Sony to do that !
Sony isn't nice to anyone. They want you to buy the new a6300.
Why should anyone pick this thing over an RX100M? I don't like DigitalRev videos that much, but the DXO ONE review he did really showed up how awkward it can be to take pictures with it compared to a 1" Sensor Compact Camera like the RX100.
