Photoman: Would this produce better video quality than a BlackMagic Pocket Cinema Camera???

@Dave Andrade I knew the BM in it's raw format would have more latitude, but can a consumer see the difference between a BM raw & a Sony XAVC S codec? I mean a consumer thinks a crappy phone image is great!

Sounds like a cheap video production camera for me! Imagine if the film set of the first Matrix had this camera, instead of Canon film SLR's.

Better phase AF than a Canon I thinks.

Robert Eckerlin: Yes, I too will not buy a camera without View Finder.

And as long, as the quality (among other the brightness and colors) of the image shown in the EVF does not get comparable to the quality of the images shown in reasonable Optical viewfinders: I will also not buy a camera without OVF. The pleasure of looking via VF at the photo that i will soot is an extremely important part of my overall pleasure of taking photographies.

Can I please ask experts: why is the quality of the image shown in EVF not comparable to the quality of the image shown in "reasonble" optical viewfinders (e,g. the OVF of the NIKON D5000)? Is it really impossible to build at a reasonable price cameras having EVFs with pleasant image quality?

And why does Dpreview not rate or comment the quality of the Images shown in EVFs? I would appreciate very much to read such comments, in order to motivate me from time to time to take a look at new camera having (according dpreview) EVFs with an excellent image quality.

But you can take selfies! Also it has a smile detection mode, were you smile, it takes the photo! I have the A5000 and is much as I like a EVF, it is usable outdoors with the brightness up.

Roland Karlsson: Poor monsters and evil children, liking to kill and frighten the sorry creatures.

I give this a 2 on a scale of 1-10. That it gets a 2 and not a 1 is because it was a rather unexpected series of photos.

BTW

The kids are not realistic.

The nightmare monsters are not nightmarish, rather funny.

How about we agreed to disagree and more people like it that you...done!

Photoman: Why would anyone spend so much money on a compact sensor size camera? Is it a Asian market thing?

I prefer my new camera I'd picked up for a $1 on the weekend...a new Sony A5000 kit.

Hmm. I like quirky cameras, but it's just the dollars. I have over 10 cameras from FF to compacts and would be hard to find a place for this camera. I have to many cameras, but also not enough ;)

Yep, why bother. Buy a 1" or 4/3 for the same money. That seems were the smart money is at.

Photoman: Phottix Odin is a superior system and available for Sony (a lot more control and a better control interface) or the cheaper Phottix Strato TTL is the same (without the AC-3 option) and far cheaper.

I would imagine the Phottix engineers will be on the case. When the Odin was first released, it only 1/2 stop exposure control. Customers asked for 1/3 control and within two weeks the brought out a firmware update with that.

Photoman: If it's a new EOS-1 camera, let's hope it doesn't have bad AF like the 1D MK3 or MAJOR, MAJOR problems like in the 1DX. Canon Australia tried to cover up the 1DX problems and even got a lawyer to make blatant lies in small claims court. Give me a car that leaks a bit of oil than a cruddy lemon that breaks down and keeps stopping.

Glowing yes, but have at least a half a dozen that needing fixing and not very happy owners that I know of, plus this case last year in Australia.

Zeisschen: Sensei's wisdom:

You know that a technology must be awesome when many negative comments on DPR try to explain how useless it is compared to "a proper DSLR*

@Wye Photography Monkeys will replace video camera operators and photographers in the future. Tracking technology will automatically lock on to the target you select and the monkey points in the general direction....sad really.
