yeah....but how they gonna look on my new 5K retina??????
ambercool: 5k... /drool
I broke down and ordered one.
Jon L: This country is going to hell! How in the world can somebody dictate that I can no longer photograph the forests that I love, without first getting permission? i'm 57 years old, first it was the cities and the buildings you can't photograph anymore, now they're talking about the rest of the planet. Thomas Jefferson would be appalled!I guess this is what happens when you destroy the currency of a nation. You have to tax and regulate citizens to death. Just another way for government to collect money from the already impoverished citizens.
Well If I take paid models to a trail head without a permit and actually see a FS person who cares, then I might be hassled.
But I'm taking pictures of the wild land. I do it very often for many years. Never hassled for taking pictures.
Make yourself a bother and you might get hassled.
Anyway the point is 90% of the commenters here don't understand the regulation does not restrict landscape photography one wit.
lucidmedias: another attack on capitalism and free market.
yes, we should just sell the forests.
Comments on this story are really beyond belief.
"commercial still photography" which hires models or treads outside the usual public access will require a permit.
Having a DSLR in a park has nothing to do with it.
So you can march around to your hearts content and shoot all the landscapes you want. And sell them. Just don't use paid models or props etc.
Yes I would like to be able to do whatever I want whereever I am.
Like any infant.
When you have employees who may be injured and even sue on anyone's land, it's nice to at least have permission.
The law sounds scary but applies to very few, like me, who shoot often on USFS land.
yup... i thought so.
the quirky one gets the Gold, the killer one gets the silver and plenty of whine :)
Remarkable no one bothered to slip a few RF lenses and an adapter in their pocket for this shoot. That would have been some news.
As it is, we have known for some time the camera can produce very sharp images with the native 35. These shots, I'm afraid, mostly due to awful light, only partly show the potential even of the native lens.
Not really impressive reporting.
Better than most of us could have hoped for. Leica wides are the true test. A7r should outshoot M240. Thank You sony.
Eric Glam: The battery says it all.These A7/A7R cameras can not seriously be considered "Pro".My old Sony A100 has a much higher capacity battery and would last longer than this pathetic excuse (1Ah NEX battery).
I was expecting Sony to innovate and come up with "drool-worthy" cameras. I'm sorely disappointed, as I don't see any innovation here.
I want image quality in high-ISO & low-light situations that'd be better than the Nikon D4.
I was expecting high-grade video features, such as internal 10bit 4-2-2 sampling & 2.5K resolution which will down-sample to 1080p beautifully . They don't.At the very least - they should have included a 1.2Mbps standard for all FullHD FPS options, and 2.1Mbps for all 1440p options:
2560x1440p, 60fps @ 126Mbps2560x1440p, 23.976fps @ 50Mbps1920x1080p, 60fps @ 72Mbps1920x1080p, 23.976fps @28Mbps
Would also be nice to have other FPS options, such as 24.0fps, 25fps, 29.97fps, 30fps, 48fps & 50fps.
You need batteries that bad, get the grip.
Mirrorless Crusader: Annoyed that they gimped the FPS and no IBIS
You guys say: "The A7 and A7R are identical in terms of design" I guess if you ignore one has twice the metal than the other.
agrover: why isn't this the full-frame NEX some Sony users have been imagining? It's NEX, it's full frame...
It is the FFnex. Much better than we ever dreamed.
Curious? Check the pre-ordered numbers. Image quality in a smaller package is a no-brainer to all but the entrenched. How can you "know it all" when "it" is always changing?
OMG it's not perfect? It's the first---jeez the list of imperfect cameras is long. Fuji made pseudo RFs which could not MF (very well anyway). etc.
For sony, there is always a little chip around here. A chip on the shoulder. The original nex-5 could only manage a "silver".
So, here we go again.
Sorry, but Nikon can only dream of a niche market the size the Nex-7 is creating.
Yes, the ones are a nice size and simple to use. The AF sounds good, but the Nex-7 is no slow poke in that regard.
They are headed right into the teeth of not only the new Nex market, but the whole m43 market as well.
Why did they not just go m43 and at least have the best sensor and fastest AF?
And of course they missed the greatest coup still left for the taking: a Cheap M9.
Good lord, guys, enough with the silly vertical snaps.
Not a good infinity shot I can see--lets see the skyline so we can at least get an idea.
