[Insert absurd anti-Canon rant here] :-)

There must be something wrong with this post There aren't nearly enough negative Comments. :-)

Sony includes 4K in their cameras, because they want to promote the sale of their 4K televisions. Camera companies that don't make televisions don't have that financial incentive.

That reminds me of Twig the skateboarding Sheltie on Youtube. :-)

JCFan1979: Looking at all the negative comments all I can conclude is that many photographers (or wannabe photographers) are all a bunch of childish snobs. There's no right form of photography, there's no right way of painting, there's no right way of dancing. Art is art and you don't have to talk about how it ruins the picture for you if it's HDR. When you take a perfect photo with absolutely no modifications in Lr or some other software and no technical flaws period you let me know.....and also sell me your magic camera.

"Art is art"

No, there's a quality difference between Picasso and Thomas Kinkade.

"a bunch of childish snobs."

No, it's your name calling that's childish.

In reply to:

Viva Santo Nino: Hates are just pure of hate. Trey is one of the most successful photographers in the world. To each his own. I like his style of photography. He switched from Nikon to Sony few years ago. ‘To take an interesting photo, some may choose to carry around a lot of metal and glass and mirrors and silicon. I choose to carry around less metal and glass and silicon. Oh, and no mirrors.’ – Me, quoting myself.” – Trey Ratcliff"

@Joe Ogiba: Oh, please. My dislike of Trey Ratcliff's work has nothing to do with the brand or type of camera that he uses.

My dislike of Thomas Kinkade's paintings has nothing to with the brand of paint that he uses.

(Ratcliff and Kinkade are two of a kind.)

dash2k8: All commercial forms of photography today are heavily edited. That perfect skin on the perfect body of the perfect supermodel? The skin is fake, the body has extra fat removed, and areas unevenly lit are brightened. I think TR's HDR work is very realistic-looking, not the canned and automated results that come from Photomatix presets. If people are going to slam his work for being over-processed or fake, then they can just go to the mall and start blasting the huge ads everywhere. 99% "fake," all of them.

It's one thing to dislike the HDR style, it's another to outright slam it as garbage or crap or fake. By the same standard, Picasso couldn't paint worth a crap.

Trey Ratcliff is no Picasso. He's more like Thomas Kinkade.

To use one example, describing Photo 9 as "very realistic-looking" is absurd.

In reply to:

redseer: Picasso, van Gogh, Salvador Dali.... none of their arts look "real". HDR is an art, not a court document.... it doesn't need to look real. Some people never realize photography is about art, it's not about buying the most expensive equipment....

Trey's work is excellent.

I appreciate Picasso, van Gogh, Salvador Dali, etc. Just because someone is attempting to be artistic, doesn't mean that the outcome is worth looking at. Photo 9, for example, makes me cringe. I guess it was designed to be printed on black velvet. :-)

For me, all of those photos were taken in impossible-to-reach locations, because I couldn't afford to travel there.

I can take "dull, uninteresting, poorly lit and composed" photos without any travel or suffering. [so proud] :-)

On Sony reportedly shifting focus to full-frame cameras article (453 comments in total)
In reply to:

Chris Joy: What's with all the sky is falling posts? Nobody said they were going to stop making APS-c, just they are focusing on FF. They've already announced that 7 new FF lenses are coming by the end of the year.

They're obviously doing well selling sensors to Nikon, Pentax and so on and the A5100/A6000 are always near the top of the Amazon sales rankings. APS-c is fine.

FF is the focus on new camera/lens production right now because its more profitable and the A7's are hot.

Sony's highly profitable sensor division is separate from their camera division. That way, when Sony gets bored with making cameras, they can easily spin off their camera division. :-)

Not to worry, Sony will shift focus to something else next year. :-)

Direct link | Posted on Aug 4, 2015 at 15:36 UTC as 27th comment

It's ironic. Sony makes a lot of money selling sensors for smartphones, but their own smartphone division is a money loser.

I hate that sensor!

(See, how polarizing it is.) :-)

"We held a 59 percent share in the mirrorless camera market last year ..."

but only (by value) a 11% share of the ILC market.

When Sony execs brag, they always seem to forget to mention the last part. :-)

In reply to:

Photomonkey: More profit in FF. More status in FF. More easily marketed to photo wannabes.

They will likely see a huge jump in market share with the follow on advantage of selling FF sensors to their competitors.
The real question is what R&D will there be for APS-C people?

Lower sales volume in FF.

Camera companies want everyone to buy expensive high-margin cameras, but I suspect that the overwhelming majority of camera buyers have a different idea.
