cdembrey: The flat film wide screen is 1.85:1, HD video (16x9) is 1.77:1. If you want your film to be seen by the most people at theaters and streaming (Netflix, Amazon Prime) don't go with Anamorphic wide screen or Imax.

The price to see a movie at an Imax Theater is out of reach for many people. Please don't turn movies into an elitist pastime.

@Cdembrey, iMax theater cost 6$ for entry here in Morocco (Yes all the latest movies with 3D). 1$ more than a basic cinema... I am not sure how much it cost in the US but I think it won't be more expensive than in a third world country...

Dr Blackjack: I want to see a proper shot on iPhone with no accessories commercial.

@tkbslc except the burger is only made to look good. They didn't add any "additional accessories" to make it look good. Here they are talking about gear that cost a heck a lot of that iPhone itself...

Brace for Canon's fanboys : 11mm is worth the 1000$ more !

In reply to:

donsdavid: I wonder how the "no blackout" feature of this camera is similar/different to the 1DX2 liveview shooting mode.

Using Liveview with the 1dx, the focusing doesn't use the af module the camera has (the mirror is retraced), so it's much slower for sport and you can't have that liveview feed on the viewfinder.

eazizisaid: CaNikon need a new mount : Mirrorless is the future whether they like it or not. From a production cost pov, they have a big opportunity to reduce manufacturing cost and keeping the price about the same (Less parts and labor etc).

A smaller flange distance will help both Canon & Nikon to offer smaller form factor cameras with aps-c sized sensor. The size argument is always in favor of mirrorless cameras with smaller sensors and it isn't something to neglect.

As for lenses, a lot of CaNikon's prime lenses are due to renewal anyways, so better design mirrorless prime lenses for the long run and develop zoom lenses in parallel by maybe changing the lens construction including motors, while keeping the same optical formula and adding a tube to compensate for the shorter flange distance. It'll be a better option to save money and release new zooms rather quickly of course if it's technically feasible. Full frame Zooms aren't notorious for being small, so the tradeoff seems to be ok to me.

I don't see them omitting the benefits of shared lenses between FF & Aps-c. The cost of R&D for FF will at the same time trickle down to Aps-c... nothing magic about this.

You talked out of emotions and omitted to look at this from a business perspective. You cannot talk about one mount without considering the other one.

Canon & Nikon cannot afford to support two different mounts. It's not economically healthy nor feasible as more and more companies aim at reducing expenses in dev & inventories rather than the opposite.

Aps-c represents a big part of the camera market (read : Amateurs, pros that need a light & efficient camera, etc...) and this format was made because if can deliver an excellent compromise between size and IQ. Canon already did this with the EOS-M. The camera is light and the flange distance allowed it to be as compact as other Sony aps-c cameras, thus being very competitive. Or are they mistaken ?

Again, the camera can be made bigger to accommodate the needs of a category of users but the opposite isn't possible.

IMO, Canon will keep the same EOS-M mount for their new FF camera. Otherwise they'll be making an expensive mistake.

On article Alpha-better: Sony a9 versus a7R II (503 comments in total)
In reply to:

joyclick: Name one camera from Sony stable that has been a solid dependable performer with no qirks and downsides as Nikon D300s,D700,D750,D810,D5 or
Canon 5D series ,or the 1DX series or even 7D,7DII.
Sonys have come and gone,have come and gone.They have been impressive yes but has there been that stayed on as a professional, one would instintivly reach for?
Olympus has a better record than that with MFT

Alpha A-mount were good but the adoption rate was not good.

This A9 is the answer for all the point you mentioned.

I think people who are targeted by this switch are more likely those who are about to change their whole arsenal because of obsolescence or new comers which are considered the next pros.

Mikael Risedal: nope, it is 24mp stacked CMOS sensor for super-fast readout, allowing a completely silent electronic shutter. It can shoot at 20 frames per second for more 241 compressed Raw frames, do you have anything from others like this?

That's not how battery rating works.

In reply to:

straylightrun: Is the new electronic shutter a global shutter? What differentiates it from the electronic shutters in the a7s, a7sII and a7rIIs?

"Old" A7 camera's electronic shutter read the sensor line by line which results in the jello effect.

This camera's processing speed is so fast that it can read lines faster, hence avoiding the jello effect.

Not a total global shutter because the jello is visible in video, but in stills, the faster readout just get things done !

Anadrol: What Sony has done since buying Minolta in 2006 is truly impressive !

But what about weather sealing ?

It wasn't mentionned in the press conf, so i doubt it's rugged.

entoman: Fantastic specification for a sports camera, but the same old ergonomics.

I was rather hoping that Sony would change the form factor on this highly anticipated device, so that it handled as well as a Nikon D500 or a 5-series Canon, but it looks now that we'll have to wait another 5 years for Sony to deliver a new design with better ergonomics.

A missed opportunity, and I suspect that, despite the specification, most sports photographers will stay with Nikon or Canon.

You can always add the grip. Keeping the "small" factor will broaden the range of photographers that will use this camera.

eazizisaid: I am from Morocco and I find this extremely absurd especially with airline traffic ! Talking from experience, the security at CMN airport is really crazy and thorough.

Now if some genius can make a bomb out of a smartphone let's say a pack of Galaxy Note 7, then that's another talk... oh wait

... joke aside, this is absurd.

Inherited texts from old times yes, not newly decreed.

nickolas84: The sensor is nothing sort of amazing. But we are talking 275MB/s of data here. Is there any smartphone that can handle that? Not just speed, one hour of video is 1TB, much more than your average SSD.

You know that 960 fps equals to 2 minutes at 30 fps ?

2.8 to 5.6 because of the APD glass ?
