Charlieangel: Are there any advantages to DLSR now, aside from the through-the-lens optical viewfinder?
Yeah if your into the whole Vintage thing.
W16GYM: Some obvious omissions here notably Sony!!!Also mirror-less implies small light weight camera so how come there are two bricks as winners...oh because they've got 4K. Why is this site so wrapped up in 4k did the editor by a new TV!!!!4k is a marvellous feature like wifi, and gps but these aren't what make a camera good!
DP this has got to be the worse review EVER.
I believe they've gotten to the point where they like to press buttons then sit back and chuckle at the consternation it causes. Quite sadistic actually.
If the a6000 and A7 arn't enthusiast mirrorless cameras; ...have I missed something? Perhaps a new category came to be whilst I was dreaming of turkeys and dressing? Speaking of turkeys, I'm sure you folks will come with some sort barely plausible explanation but REALLY? This is rather like the petty torments of Dr. Chilton :)
Nikon makes some pretty good stuff. And Canon,yes. But Sony is on FIRE! Fast AF with reliable tracking, well implemented focus peaking with magnification, legacy glass, smoking good EVF, FULL FRAME and now with FIVE AXIS IS! All for under $2k! "Despite the emergence of mirrorless cameras, the market is still dominated by conventional DSLRs" I doubt very much if you will be able extol that statement for very much longer.
Belly aching about a clickless wheel seems a bit excessive even to the point of OCD as you go on and on and on... about it...really? Your extremely subjective shooting experience aside, this is an otherwise excellent review and an appropriate score IMO.
can't do it.
I'll see you Sony...and raise you one...BOOYAH!
photofan1986: Is it me or is this last batch of samples much better than the other one? I mean, IQ wise. Those look really terrific.
No question about it, the photographer was much more engaged in the shots as the results clearly demonstrate.
I would have liked to have seen this shot with +1 sharpness and +1 saturation at ISO100 from a tripod.
OBI656: I have this camera. When I came back home from my "testing photo-shot" where I did use Leica Summicron M 50 mm f/2.0 on this camera I did not believe what I have seen. This combo did produce absolutely awesome quality images which I have shot in RAW format.Rich saturated with profound details and silky smooth hightails.In short I can tell you, that this A6000 is finest cam I did ever have in my pocket.
Well that's great OBI-WAN, how bout showing us those great shots? Can we get a link please?
I would have thought that the conclusion segment of this review mention just how amazing this camera performs with the Zeiss Touit lenses. I mean they are after all THE stand-out e-mount primes available for this system so why not talk it up. AND Zeiss claims to be releasing a firmware update soon that will allow Touits to function correctly with the a6000 hybrid phase detect auto focus. At that point, 80 Gold with a kit lens is 85 Gold with the Zeiss ALL DAY LONG.
Scored 35 with Canon mount so I'm guessing 43ish on the D800E or a7R adapted to alpha mount...sweet. I just hope the new 24 1.4 is at least as good.
M H S: Oh no! Not this again.
The excessive focus on the alleged unsatisfying "shooting experience" is just ridiculous.
First and foremost, the point of the camera is to take good pictures (and videos). Furthermore, one person's "inert" experience is another person's "smooth" experience. Give it a rest DPR.
I agree with you VIK, I like to think of it as DPR practicing their premature ejaculation exercises…
Sample images are very strong…Bionz X processor from the Alpha triplets and new Zeiss lens having a huge impact on OOC jpgs. Hopefully RAW is even better. Sony continues to impress leaving the others to look like dust specks on the rear view mirror…I’M IN!!!
photog4u: Level gauge, one press AF selection and eye sensor activation are all fixable in firmware...please get busy Sony!
I've already confirmed that the a6000 has the required hardware (gyro) built in, they just chose not to activate the level in this model for some strange reason.
Level gauge, one press AF selection and eye sensor activation are all fixable in firmware...please get busy Sony!
Wow...really impressive images coming from the kit lens. This thing will undoubtedly rock with FE lenses attached.
"the best camera is the one you enjoy shooting with enough to have with you." BRILLIANT!
Anybody shooting a Canon 5D Mark II which BTW came out in '08, ought to be pretty excited about this new Siggy lens. WOW! ...that baby is SHARP!
EOSHD: You can't judge noise levels on YouTube. Compression removes it. ISO 1600 looks worse than 25,600. There's also the matter of rolling shutter on this camera, it isn't pretty! http://www.eoshd.com/content/12631/sony-a7s-rolling-shutter-test
EOSHD: Can we assume that you've notified the proper authorities at Sony and apprised the of them of the situation? If not, kindly do so at your earliest convenience. It would be a shame to have such a magnificent camera plagued by such an anomaly. Thank you.
Nukunukoo: At full sensor sampling with uncompressed HDMI, I wonder how video would look at higher ISOs (dim scenes) recorded on a Ninja 2? Intriguing.
Mike Kobal did some low light video sampling. He was impressed.
