Is Maddie a Bigle?
Horshack: I realize this video showcases the A7rII and many have rightly pointed out the camera is receiving a disproportionate amount of coverage on dpreview. But for this particular video I recommend putting the gear talk aside and watch it for everything else it offers, which IMO is an inspirational story about an independent photographer making his way through the country with his best friend, taking great images along the way. At three minutes into the video I found myself completely zoning out the camera and focused on the content, which is the first time that's happened to me watching a dpreview gear-oriented video.
oops, my misread post. i retract the above post. :)
Are you saying that all digital cameras should get the same space on DPR?
joe_leads: Today I looked through the viewfinder of a Canon 6D and was so shocked by that tiny and primitive focus area. You're getting so used to all the benefits this great camera system brings to you.
This thread is about the A7rII. So unless you are comparing the A7II to the A7rII, you are OT discussing the A7II in comparison to the 6d.
joe, since the 6d costs about a third of what the A7r2 costs, wouldnt it be fair if the focus area were about a third the size of the Sony's focus area. You are comparing two cameras which share only the sensor size, their prices put them into different classes. So if you want to compare apples and apples, compare the focus area of a 5ds/r to the a7r2.
@steelhead3 I hope you are right. Also, I would add that Joe_leads is comparing a camera body that can be bought now for about a third of what the a7r2 costs. So... oranges and apples.
Canon intentionally nerfed the focus area on the 6d to avoid cannibalization of the 5d line. So the 6d focus area really doesnt represent what the company can do. It represents a marketing decision.
For some this is the a7r II, for me it is the a7r too expensive. :(
Shake Reduction: These are really fantastic pictures.
Bunch of old guys that shoot squirrels in their back yard ragging on any of these photos is the height of hilarious. You can't beat this for entertainment value anywhere on the internet.
Well, I guess I dont qualify, just shot a bluebird in my backyard. :( Please lower the reply qualifications, not all of us have shot squirrels in our yard.
Nice I was there on Friday, I know how tough it is to get a shot including those explosions in the background. You must have been on motor drive. :)
Too bad this reply method doesnt allow me to post one of the photos I took.
ripleysbaby: I'm Holding out for one made from dolphin with koala trim.
I resent that. (see my avatar)
Impulses: And I thought my $70 Artisan & Artist strap was expensive... Functionally it's the complete opposite of this thing tho, 'easy glide' adjustment on the fly is the best thing ever.
Fine Italians might be an endangered species.
Holding out for the baby seal leather model.
Where's Tom Bombadil?
Makes me want to visit Canada.
sportyaccordy: Saturation.... it's not just a photo editor adjustment.
But some of Canon's competitors have a whole new crop of cameras this year... ;)
bed bug: It would be interesting to see if the other manufacturers have suffered the same fall, or if the propaganda of that great false prophet, 'God Sony' has had a significant effect on sales.
I guess with the forecast for further reductions, we will not see the replacement for the 5DII, 1DX all that soon.
Shame they missed out on Nokia.
MartinB77: Oh oh... I got a sneaking suspicion why Sony has choosen the uncompressed RAW: I bet a full box of beer that the lossy compression algorithm is hard wired (say: soldered) on the BIONZ imaging processor. This means that no firmware update of this world coult turn it into a lossless compression.
The only thing that Sony was able to do is to turn it completeley off.
Sad thing; now I had to wait for the next BIONZ generation with lossless compression.
Nevertheless - it's quite good that Sony has reacted at all.
I hope you mean a full case of beer bottles. Or are you buying your beer in a box now?
Was wondering where the sensors for the new Nikon FF cameras went.
