On Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 III Review preview (758 comments in total)

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.

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.

In reply to:

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!!!

In reply to:

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.

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!

On Sony Alpha 7S in low-light: See video at ISO 409,600 article (245 comments in total)
In reply to:

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.

On Sony Alpha 7R Review preview (796 comments in total)
In reply to:

munro harrap: I was put off Olympus and Fuji's little machines for the same reason as the NEX sony equivalent s- the lenses. If you bother to look at downloadable samples you can see why everyone is trading theirs in. (Look at the LCE and Park cameras sites) These zoom lenses need enormous correction at wide-angle. This correction destroys the border resolution, and my concern for full-frame mirrorless is that the same will apply for wide-angle lenses. AS there is no mirror these lenses are cheaper and easier to design and make (yes Leitz!), but as mentioned here, they are being underdesigned to maximise profits and photographers suffer as a result. You are not paying less, for the new Sony A7 lenses you are overpayingl. On paper the tests pass muster, just (see Photozone.de or the Optix Pro site), but notably the squished mashed appearance of the photographs themselves (the only thing that counts) escapes tests, but not our eyes.Or can I not see for the tears?

BALDERDASH! I don’t who you are and I have no knowledge of your work but here are two very well respected and published professional photographers whose work and ART produced with the a7R has not been, in the least bit, affected by your ridiculous assertions.
Trey Radcliff: http://www.stuckincustoms.com/
Brian Smith: http://briansmith.com/blog/
I suggest you spend less time pouring over downloaded internet samples and pick up an a7R and shoot with it. If you have even the slightest bit of talent, you will be extremely pleased with your results.
