Thanks for the review! When you folks will test the AF, I’d like to know If, during AF process (in AF-C mode if I remember correctly), the camera closes at the actual f/ stop you choose, or it will close at the right f/ stop only when you press the shutter? Or is there a Aperture Drive mode? As it was for A7r 4 as it was pointed out in your review here: https://www.dpreview.com/reviews/sony-a7r-iv-review/7

Azimuth46: mmmh... if there is no FREE catalog reader as it was with iView Media Pro or the subsequent Microsoft Expression Media, this is just a new super expensive piece of software WITHOUT sharing capabilities ... Thumb down for me!

I know their software is very speedy and capable, but there are a pletora of DAM outside, already integrated in other software ... there is no need for a super fast DAM before the post processing sw that has its own DAM capabilities.

sorry for my english. What I meant to say is that with the old MS Expression Media I could create a catalog with a bunch of photos, and send the catalog WITHOUT the original photos for editing and the other side could open it with the reader (which didn't require license because it was free) and select, rearrange, keep and star all the photos and return me back the updated catalog. Very handy !

I'm not into calibrators but I'm wondering how this model works in conjunction with an hardware LUT calibrated monitor...

Problem with this stuff is that you cannot change the NVNe... too bad!

Thanks for this article guys! I sincerely think it's very polish, elegant, open and encouraging. Completely different from most of the others on the net because it's not in a compliant but in a suggestion form. I truly hope that Nikon will listen. Well done!

It seems to me that Windows gains significant more performance than Mac in this upcoming release.

Most importantly Adobe and also DPR are concentrated on import/export times but it's not there where we must concentrate on. I know it's much easier to test import and/or export but the bottleneck is in reviewing images in Library module when you go as fast as possibile from one image to another, even with two screens (one dedicated to have the image in full screen) and you have the "Loading..." or you have the pixellating images because they are still loading!

You have to do the same in Develop Module where LR is supposed to use GPU (which one is enough when a 1080Ti isn't!), or when you are comparing images still in Dev Module. And so forth. These are the tests that count! Especially if you are working with a UHD monitor, which is more common nowadays.

Azimuth46: @Barney Britton,

on the D850's brochure it's written that EFCS is enabled in both Q single and Q continuos (3fps) shutter modes... are you sure it's still implemented as mirror up lock mode?

yes but this time the process of raising up the mirror is automatic... otherwise you could not have quiet mode at 3fps

"Then the US Copyright Office ruled that animals cannot own copyrights, leaving the photo ostensibly author-less."

If animals cannot own any copyrights, the photo's rights should return to the photograph, who's also the author of the concept, it cannot stay author-less. How stupid is this debate!

I made some shots with an A9, mainly at home. Lots, lots of noise in the shadows even at 100 ISO. Especially with blue, dark blue and dark colours. When you push to recover them it becomes very visible... :( :( :(

In reply to:

(unknown member): Am I blind or is there a focusing error? The lowly D750 is much sharper.

I wouldn't define Nikon D750 as lowly. It's probably the best FF 24MP camera in DR. AND resolution is absolutely there.

In reply to:

azDavin: The majority of the users who will buy this camera will spray and pray in jpg anyway.
I just wish Sony would update my old a7r to lossless compression but according to Sony the a7, a7s and a7r were never professional cameras and the A9 is.

@Tommi K1

you don't have faith and patience. Typical consumers' attitude. Nikon & Canon will answer soon. They will not wait more than 1 year to have their EVIL pro camera... Sony is just one contender more... nothing else ...

In reply to:

TN Args: DPR-- you seem to have changed your story about 12-bit Continuous drive. You earlier wrote that it is only 12-bit at speeds above 5 fps. Today you are not mentioning the 5 fps criterion. Today you give the impression Continuous is 12-bit at all speeds. (And the histogram evidence is for 20 fps).

So, which is it?

Also, have you tried the histogram test for e-shutter in Single Shot mode?

At this point still one thing is not clear to me:

Under 640ISO does it still make sense to shot 14bits? Or in no situations 14bits give you an extra information and so we can always use 12bits mode which saves a lot of space?

There is another test done by photonstophotos.net. They estimated the dynamic range of A9 falling in between A7R2 and D5, but more close to A7R2.

Because Sony a9 is NOT a sports camera ONLY (or AT ALL, time will tell us). Didn't you notice it?

In reply to:

photomedium: Since the D5 has a sony sensor, this is where the technology is at. Speed and high ISO sacrifices DR. Nothing wrong with that.

@Rishi Comparing my D500 with α9 (estimated) :

http://photonstophotos.net/Charts/PDR.htm#Nikon%20D500,Sony%20ILCE-9(estimat)

leads to the fact that α9 is comparable to an APS camera, at least under ISO 640... :( ... and D500 is not _that_ outstanding regarding the IQ, even if it's very good.

Just wondering if a new firmware can change this behaviour and reducing a bit the read out speed - ate least when camera works in single shot or under 5fps which is the limit for mech shutter to work - and trading it for more DR...
