Please, Sony, shake the world of digital photography!!!
a typo:The first page: "Sony NEX-C3 specification highlights"should be F3.
Gothmoth: can someone explain why the D4 sensor is worse then the D800 in the DXO score?
i mean ok resolution is clear.
but the D800 is better in DR and color depth scores too.and the D4 is not so much better in low iso score.
- i would expect that the D4 sensor scores equal or better in DR and color scores .. but not worse.
NOT necessarily.For the dynamic range, the key variable is the shadow noise at base ISO.As can be seen in the review of D7000/K5/NEX5N, the new-generation cmos developed by Sony has extermely low shadow noise level at ISO100. D800 sensor proved to be a great success from this perspective. Just download the ISO100 sample RAW file, use ACR to adjust exposure to +4EV, and look at the darkest area of the scene, the result is incredible.I speculate that the D4 sensor is developed with a different philosophy: lowest noise across the whole ISO range. It might not beat D800 in turns of shadow noise at base ISO, but is definitely the king of low-light.
Gregm61: Tell us something we don't already know....
Even though most of "us" know the mirrorless market share is definitely growing, I, at least, never know the EXACT figures.Thanks for CIPA's report.
The aperture sounds great: f2.0-2.8 -- just a little bit behind the great Olympus XZ-1 lens. Combined with the EXR-CMOS, the whole thing looks quite promising! With the built-in viewfinder and those mechanical dials? I definitely gonna buy it -- but if and only if the price is close to the competitors! (e.g. XZ-1, LX5)
