Oh no.... I shoot sony and I love their cameras but their software from a usability standpoint is not well known for being easy to use.

ArizonaPete: I agree with everyone that says 8K is pretty important for cameras like this.

It’s not just for 8k delivery which will be more common in just a couple years, but more so for 4K editing and delivery. 8k means over sampling and digital stabilization can be applied for the best 4K video. And it means zooming and cropping can be applied in post and still leave sharp 4K.
It means no longer using 2 cameras, on for a closeup, during a scene. There are many scenarios where it is helpful.

We all know how reducing/normalizing a 33MP image to 8MP reduces noise and increases the perceived DR. Same with 8k to 4K

8k is a big deal for 4K delivery. An expensive high end camera without is limiting it use.

You make good points, but you forgot one huge thing, globally we are broke and all the projections for 4k or 8k adoption rates are substantially off. Like the hope and trends for 2020 were shooting for ~40% 4k adoption rate in the US sometime this year. But covid was a thing and that is not happening. 8k adoption rates are minuscule at best currently.

The market honestly really doesn't need a wobbly 8k image at all, which at this price point is the best you'd get.

voyeurb: Yes, but why are they so big?

I think they are trying to be consistent in their filter diameter. All the Tamron released for Sony so far have a 67mm filter thread. It's kinda thoughtful so folks don't have to buy a bunch of different sizes or adapters.

On article Sony a7R IV review (1499 comments in total)
In reply to:

saxo2: Maybe I missed it, but:
1) Does the camera produce time-lapse video right in the camera, like Panasonic and Nikon? This is a realy time saving option if high end video quality is not the main subject.
2) Does the camera in HR mode produce just one HR-RAW file in the camera, like Panasonic? Or does I still need to export all the single RAW files and use an extern software to integrate the files into a single HR file, a very time consuming procedure?

The A7III does so I don't see why this wouldn't.

There was a whip pan in that video that bugged me but only cause it felt slower than the accompanying audio.

Imager of: And remind me why exactly do you need to fly these drones near airports again? 😖

Controlled airspace is 7 nautical miles surrounding airports. It's a huge radius that covers most cities.

Mister J: Love the spec, though would really like a fully-articulated screen.

Why though? Just connect it to your phone and you can see your video that way.

On article Sigma to create 'Classic' range of cine Art primes (69 comments in total)
In reply to:

walker2000: What's the advantages of these new classic cine lenses than existing modern cine lenses and post processing in software that movie shooters have to do anyway?

No manufacturer changes the physical size of cine lenses. They are usually the same size regardless of focal length because when on set you don't wanna resize your follow focus or get a stepdown mounting ring for your matte box.

For professional cine gear they always keep that consistent.

This is all going to end up in a landfill in a couple months. What a waste

It will be called "Fesse-book"...

Clue : "Fesse" is a French word that sounds close to the English word "Face"...

Oh wait I read that wrong. Good show

Wildabobalore: And yet interestingly there isn't an article about the BCN data showing Sony losing market share to Nikon and Canon in Japan.

Little did you know there actually is a conspiracy and I was just using sarcasm to throw you off the trail. Mwahahahahha fell right into my plans.

TheRealEagleclaw: Truthfully, after the A7III, I really don't see much of a need to upgrade for quite sometime. Better lowlight autofocus would be great, yes. More megapixels, get the a7r mark III.

Like really they could bump the DR somewhat and speed up the focus or make it more intelligent or whatever. But really like in terms of actual tangible big game changer stuff, whoever is the first to bring global shutter to a small ilc without sacrificing DR will be king.

I agree. I picked up the sigma 1-400 for Canon because there was no native option that didn't require me selling a child to afford.

In reply to:

visualenvy: Is it a correct observation that there is a correlation between their increase in MILC sales driven primarily by hybrid shooters which caused their video camera (camcorder/FS lines) to decrease?
I don't think that the majority of A7III buyers are photographers only which proves the shifting market to video only/hybrid in a small package.
I'm a Nikon user and my clients ask for video (maybe more now) as well as photo so hybrid definitely seems to be the way to go which is why I got a Z 6.

But is it the sub $2k price that is main driver to the higher sales of A7 and A6x00, is it technical capabilities or is it the popular opinion the market has for Sony at the moment? A combination?

Price point and good enough performance, would be my guess. Hype is a big factor also.

It's a conspiracy! Dpreview is run by the Illuminati lizard people! You found them out.

Pootle2: I have a request... in the future when DPReview does an article like this, can you do two things:
1) Explain the difference between market share and units sold
2) Do some investigative journalism/research and see what the underlying numbers creating the percentages are.

To me, this graph originally looked OMG SONY!!!! but when I took a harder look, all it seem to me is that when the Canon EOS RP was introduced (beginning of chart) a lot of people bought it - meaning as a PERCENTAGE of TOTAL sales, it went up and Sony went down. Now a few months later all the early adopters have their RP and sales have settled out again.

I'd almost be willing to bet that in terms of sales numbers everyone is more or less consistant across that time period - except for the RP. (I'm too lazy to go do the research myself)

In other words: lies. damn lies, and statistics.

The final figures add up to roughly 84%, that allows 16% to be divided up between all the other full-frame mirrorless cameras on the market. Seems pretty accurate representation to me. It isn't total sales compared to themselves it's total sales for that timeframe. RP came out and I'm sure the a7III took a nose dive the month before, but the a7III has been out for a year now and is still consistently outselling its competitors.

The a7iii is a great camera btw. I've been a solid canon user for 10 plus years but that camera from sony is nearly the perfect camera for most people (at this point and price range)

In reply to:

GoodKnight: Really this makes sense. Sony as noted has a much larger user base since they were the only player in the Game for what 5 years. Now they are selling a new camera and taking new buyers plus people that are updating from older Sony cameras. What I want to see and what is more important are the numbers of new buyers only. Is that number available alone ?

I'm not sure you understand how stats work, bruh.
