About me:

!! Excited to be buy a Sony a7S II soon! I can't wait! Only 9 days more, maybe! Ack! :D haha! (Oct. 7, 2015; weds.)
Update: Oh my GAHHH! I just got the a7S II about 6 hours ago, at around 4:30 p.m., after work! Ahhhh!!! I'm SOOO excited for this low light monster! It is smaller, and kind of cramping my hands up compared to the D800, which fits my hands nicely. But I'll be making the best of it. "Sacrifices..." :D (Oct. 19, 2015; mon.)

I now am waiting for my first full-frame DSLR! It is the Nikon D800! I can't wait to play with/use it! :) (Sept. 12, 2013; thurs.)
Update: It arrived at 7:08 p.m. on Friday the 13th. :D 2013. Oh boy, two 13s. Does this bode well for me? Yes! I got a full-frame camera. Will it have left sensor focusing problems? I certainly hope not.

Looking into digital camera capture. Fuji S5Pro's dynamic range is really high up there for me. Seems like 'the look' more closely resemble film's ability to keep highlights. Hope that's the case. I just HATE that digital look. 'Crossing my fingers'. HA! ... Update: Woot! I'm getting the S5 Pro. Yippee! My first dSLR. Should be FUN! (Sept. 8, 2007; sat.) --shipment has arrived-WOOHOO!!-(Sept. 11, 2007; tues.)

huyzer: I was about to ask what Toshiba sensor technology brought to the table for Sony. But I decided to google what I had just asked/typed up above. :P Wow, I'm liking the video HDR, CNR, and Depth Map. You can see more info (and links on left menu) at:

I'm sure more intellectual property couldn't hurt, or even research by Toshiba that we haven't seen come to market.

The Sage Knows: Slide 7 about rear dial ergonomics is spot on having handled one myself:
"...frustration when it comes to controls is the rear control dial. It’s recessed a bit too much under a protective tab that makes it awkward to turn the dial with your thumb."

Sony doesn't want the controls to move unintentionally. But I don't have that problem when handling a Pana GH4 or G7 and yet can rotate both their front and rear dials while gripping the camera one handed. Alternatively, Sony should consider emulating their A77 front/rear dials as they worked better in this respect.

I wonder if a nicely placed Dremel cut to that protective tab will fix the problem for you. Will be looking forward to your DIY video on this matter. :D haha

Do you think the decision to make the clicking less pronounce, was so that the internal mic doesn't pick up that clicking too much? I just bought the a7S II, so will be testing this. :)

agachart: i had no problem about high ISO,DR or color depth.
because that is Still photo specs.

but i wanna know about Overheat,Rolling Effect,Battery,Moire
,Are they (Sony) solved these Problems.

This camera intent on video footage must upgrade all my request.
if it's not ,it's same old A7S.

I was happy to hear, "users can now charge the camera via a USB power supply whilst the camera is in operation" (I guess the a7S couldn't do that?). But I still worry about the overheating.

Hi HowaboutRAW,

Sounds like the physical size of the camera does help in dissipating the heat. The thing about the Samsung and Panasonic, though, is probably because they use non-Fullframe sensors, so less heat? It's my guess, though I don't know for sure the sensor size and model you're referring to (GH4?... not familiar with them as I would like fullframe :) ).

HowaboutRAW,

Oye. Maybe an external recorder might help with the heat issue? But, otherwise, it'd be a perfect camera for me.

philflashes: Did you know that your brain degrades as well every time you use social media? If you took a scan (of your brain) each time you use Fakebook (or any other social rip-off) it will show about the same degradation as these pictures!
The quality of the first scan won't always be very good, even though it is raw...

Dpreview has social aspects, like right here. :) I think it will stand for Dementia preview. ;)

This reminds me of a thread me and a online user (claypaws) did a number of years ago, but regarding setting the Jpeg save setting in Photoshop to level 12 vs. level 8. Guess which one came out with no deterioration?
