J A C S: I am curious how each camera is color calibrated individually. Adjusting the gain for each channel? Doing a full spectral analysis and storing the data in the camera so that it can be used later in the converter?

I think this has to do with the nature of sensors. They might be the same and printed on the same wafer but still produce slighty different colors (relatively to be noticed), hence the individual sensor color calibration. I think they scan an Xrite type of board and input the corrections into a Read Only Memory that the camera uses independently of the firmware to match the desired values (Hasselblad's Colors, Leica's Colors, Sony's...). Hope I am not mistaken.

walker2000: Is there any legal issues if this is a clone of Canon's lens?

Not if the term of the patent has come to an end. It's usually 20 years in the USA.

eazizisaid: Beautiful camera. If I had the money it'll go straight to Leica's pocket. Beautiful design, beautiful attention to details. You get what you pay for no matter what other people think... because if they had enough money too, they'll spend it on a Leica.

It's like saying you won't spend money on a Bentley because a Hyundai does the same function... of course if you're rich

janist74: Why D5? Why not D850? What in space the D5 can do what the D850 can not?

@entoman, if you think they shoot outside the ISS with a naked D5 (without a rugged case) you are wrong...

zacharry: Out of interest, I put my own cameras into the other comparison windows on the studio scene, a Canon 6D and a Nikon P900. The Sony blew them away (except for the awful colour fringing). I was surprised at both how the Canon looked so bad in comparison and how the P900 was seemingly really not too far behind the Canon (at 100 ISO). Then I downloaded the JPEGs of each camera and viewed the whole scene from each camera on my iMac 27 inch screen. What that did was to highlight to me that in what I would call my own real world conditions - viewing full size photos on my monitor - there isn't a huge difference. Of course you can tell which camera took each shot, and the Sony is sharper and generally all round better, but under those viewing circumstances, the puny sensored P900 wasn't that bad. It only fell to pieces at high ISOs. I do concede that for pro use, the Sony looks pretty amazing when high resolution is required. Apart from that colour fringing, it seems an amazing leap forward.

my Sony A7 resolve better details in the studio comparison... I think you should redo the test with the 55 1.8

entoman: Congratulations to Sony for pushing the envelope yet again. But I'm disappointed that the a7Riii does not feature the revised and much better controls found on the a9.

I use Canon at the moment and I'll be waiting to see what the 5DSRii is like, but it's unlikely they'll come close to the Sony's amazing 15 stops DR.

The a7Riii is in my sights but the deciding factor will be how well the Sony AF performs when using my Canon lenses.

It does !

We aren't talking here about a startup... it's Google ! If they intend to close it, I am sure they'll inform the users to backup their data. And if they do get out of the business, I am sure Facebook will get it.

Dante Birchen: DJI can ground your drone down remotely if you don't update your firmware. That's a pretty critical issue. Please contact me through private messaging for payment DJI.

I see it as a safety feature for both you and others.

zzzxtreme: Nearly all photos of fake bokeh from these dual cameras look like horrendous tilt shift effect

As did all pictures from early mobile phones... It has to start somewhere... give it time to mature and i'm sure it'll be as important to you as the single camera on the back of your phone.

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 !

On article Sony a9 Full Review: Mirrorless Redefined (2756 comments in total)
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.

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.
