Re: Are the weightage on the criterias for Landscape photography well selected?

From the video, DPR weighted on better LED panel, better High dynamic range, Focus stacking and better time lapse function, to decide on Nikon.

Are these more important to you?

My take is nothing much - Just Higher MP and above average ISO performance.

The rest are just cream on top of whatever cake it is sitting on.

DPR acknowledged Best in Resolution, Best choice of landscape lenses.

To me that is far more important.

Yes, you can add external devices to cover lack of focus stacking acquisition (not actually doing a focus stacking on the spot, you do it in PP) Has any camera been able to process in-camera at 60MP yet? - No.

I hope we weight what really matters rather than side-track on the good to have issues.

Just my personal thought. Anyway the updated A7R4A now has a better LED panel.


Aren't you missing the point? Focus stacking is a relatively easy feature to add to a camera. No one here has been arguing that they would rather have the Nikon than the Sony. But. It is an ongoing oversight from Sony that seems daft and forces users to go down tracks like the clunky Camranger2.

Nope, I am not interested in a camera doing in camera focus bracketing compilation. This is something better done in front of a computer where the various options can be considered on a big screen. But first, you have to capture those sequences.
