Well, you have to be a rich "creator" to get one of those.

Those were all people acting. I'm quite sure that there was no dental treatment on any of those "patients" during the drone flight.

The idea is good, especially when going light with the FX3, without having to carry the whole handle with a bigger mic.

Julio Cezar Cerino: Espero ver esse sensor em smartphone de consumo, e comparar essas fotos com o Iphone 13 ou o Xperia 5.

Com certeza haverá comparações. Esses comerciais nunca contam a verdade. Se as cameras de smartphones fossem tão boas assim, não haveria mais vendas de cameras DSLR para o mercado profissional. Sabemos muito bem das restrições de qualidade de imagem que existem nos smartphones.

It's interesting to see how far Sony has got through these latest years. Just a few years ago, I read some comments on DP Review that Sony would never get to the same level as Nikon and Canon as a serious camera manufacturer. How wrong they were... In today's world, if you take a short nap you have already missed the train.

Leica watch? No thanks. I prefer my stylish Casio.

They probably found out that they would not profit much from this camera as they do with their extremely overpriced printer ink cartridges.

A few months ago, I was looking for a quality 1" sensor camcorder, so I could have something immediately available for shooting videos, without having to carry my full-frame mirrorless with different lenses. I ended up getting the Sony RX100 VII compact camera. Very compact, quality 1" sensor with different video recording compressions and settings, and automatic/manual modes. It is also cheaper than camcorders that give many of the same features. No regrets here.

If I had to choose between the two cameras today, I would definitely go for the a7IV. Since I already own an a7RIII, I don't see the point to upgrade now. Maybe in 4-5 years time, when there is a significant reason to upgrade to newer technology.

MaxiMax: How does the vertical stabilization work?

Actually, the explanation is in the product announcement video:

Most Kickstarter projects seem to be based on extremely dumb ideas and have no serious or professional people involved. These are usually just dreamers without talent.

On article Sony to announce a new camera in the next 24 hours (164 comments in total)

My guess: An RX100 M8 with ND-filter and hot shoe for a mic, since I bought an M7 last week and wished that it had these features.

F.

A flat touchscreen smartphone has never been anatomically correct to hold, and is actually uncomfortable to hold. No wonder that screen repairers have their hands busy. It is bad enough to hold a smartphone, but even worse to operate them as cameras or video cameras. To me, these functions are just for emergency use. Nothing beats a proper camera with a proper grip, with physical dials and buttons.

I guess that this law will not arrest any publisher as long as the publisher states "this photo is faked", and everything is ok then.

On article Beginner's guide to buying a camera for video (69 comments in total)

If you are aiming for broadcasting quality, you will need a camera that can record in 10-bit color, and preferably in 4:2:2 resolution. If we then talk about 8K, you will also need a very powerful computer and loads of storage space. As a hobby, this is not cheap.

This story sounds a bit strange to me. I have seen other birds being scared off from their nests with eggs, but they always return back, but maybe these birds act differently - I am not an ornithologist. Anyways, it sounds like two *gigantic* drones crashed there, scaring the s of all the birds so they never returned again.

On article Opinion: Do we really need all those buttons and dials? (885 comments in total)

Sony cameras are notorious for having long and complicated menus. After owning many Sony cameras, they did it right with their latest camera models to let the user configure their own main settings and apply them to the customizable buttons on the camera. I guess that other camera manufacturers do the same. Still, I miss the great days of the film cameras, where the controls were simple and quick to adjust through mechanical buttons and switches.

On article Hands-on with the Sony FX3 cinema camera (150 comments in total)

Some people commenting here are just asking too much from a compact sized camera. If all their wishes were realized, this camera would end up being at least an FX6. Then, the best would be to buy an FX6 or a bigger rig. This was designed to be compact and light, yet providing very low noise at very high ISO, great colors at 10-bit 4:2:2, superb autofocus, image stabilization, high-quality audio recording (adding a good mic) and full-frame sensor. You could only dream about this a couple of years back.
