naththo: Sad to say Smartphone dynamic range is never come close to DSLR thats the problem. And detail of smartphone is never come close to of DSLR quality either. The sensor is very small in size so detail is pretty much limited so is dynamic range.

I can extract more detail from FF Mirrorless which is Sony A7 than the smartphone I own which is Samsung S6 Edge. And combined with dynamic range, colour sensitivity and high ISO from A7 can do 10 times better than Samsung S6 Edge. They still have a long way to go with smartphone.

Yes my main preference always goes to DSLR with high quality lens. Thats my belief since 2000's!

Here you will see why green is reduced a bit too much.

I have Spyder colour checker but still not sure, cos the green was cut down too much when calibrated with spyder colour checker.

I really think I need a strict studio control light to do colour checker calibration that would be much more accurate than having it done outside in broad daylight.

I do have to agree with Rishi, Adobe standard profile for Sony is just awful colour rendering. Blue area is blown out in saturation and clipped in shadow, the worst affected area. And highlight is clipped also in Adobe Standard profile for sunset image is not acceptable. Even with Camera standard profile, skies are way too green for me make it look like from Kodak Negative film with green skies or Olympus JPG rendering. I do not like it. I rather have custom made.

Bokeh? Ugh! Why irregular shape bokeh instead of perfect circle, this is a real problem!

Hunting light: Question - shooting stills in APS-C mode - how many megapixels? How many fps?

Thanks for that information, glad to hear that A99 II has got better buffer than A7RII.

Still Sony lags way behind Nikon for buffer, most SD card only has max of 36mb/sec out of A7RII and A99II for full MP. Nikon can do over 70mb/sec with sd card. Nikon is very good camera imo and is better for sports for full MP and better buffer. So that mean if buffer is full with Sony you have to wait twice much longer than you wait with Nikon.

Ernest M Aquilio: Let me preface this and state I am not a fan of Sony Cameras, however I must say that IMHO this is the most well rounded DSLR in the market offering quite an impressive array of capabilities in the right hands. Fans of Sony or the SLT cameras shouldn't take the DPR review as the end all be all. Buy it, rent it, try it and make your own conclusions. I like to think this camera still possesses a smidgen of Minolta heritage and innovation, and possibly the last endeavor for the A mount... certainly hope not but if it is, it is quite a way to bow out.

I believe what reviewer says. If there is issue with AF then its Sony prob to sort this out. But heck it is not a perfect camera. If you wanna have the best sports shooting then go for Nikon D500 thats one of a kind with very high buffer, the most impressive review I have ever read and D500 has a pack of power to write to high speed SD card at over 70mb/sec which is 2 to almost 3 times faster than Sony buffer from A7RII and A99 II.

Jaythomasni: color rendering is out of balance means whole visible spectrum becomes out of balance. its not just 'greens are cool' or 'yellows are greens'. that's just 'its feel like'.

And that includes you the troll wanna be who take p!$$ out of everyone who own Sony that has green radioactive lookalike. Read those stuff and you will know what I am talking about. You criticise Canon of extreme red and guess what its software problem who make colour algorithm for it!

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Demosaicing < That is look like when it just straight from camera using RAW, thats why software has to demosaicing to make a full image with all colours on it.

Its nothing to do with brand/camera/sensor/raw file. Its to do with software how it produce image converting from raw. Software has to convert using demosaicing and then add colour profile to it to make a final photo in raw editing. Adobe has their own colour profile from DCP for each camera, not all are accurate really. They never come close to manufacturer straight out of camera JPG colours.

HowaboutRAW: Any non-compressed raws from the basketball game?

I find Camera neutral for indoor artificial light works much better with less clipping and skin tone looks nicer than Camera Standard. Adobe Standard has clipping though.

Nope. I have latest updated of CC and able to open A99 II raw file directly. No need DNG converter this time.
