In reply to:

JKP: Could you show comparison to cameras like Canon and Nikon, how their bulb exposure files differ from Sony's files?

I think tampering with RAW-images by manufacturers is not going to stop unless the flaws are not clearly emphasized and compared to competitors by reviews.
To me the idea of RAW is to provide photographer the purest file captured by CMOS so they can later on add noise reduction if they decide so. Or leave it as it is.

The real problem is that there IS a menu choice to turn it off, but it comes on automatically for exposures 4sec or longer, whether you turn it off or not.

CosminMunteanu: if you make a filter on b&h photo's site on DX Nikon camera prime lenses you'll receive ONLY four (4) results (and one is a fish-eye)! none of them is weather sealed to go with the camera's one.

Right. Because Fuji and Sony APS-C lenses are so cheap...

Nikon FX lenses work on their DX cameras.

Deliverator: Underrated camera.

CosminMunteanu: "but overpriced relatively to what the competition offers (mostly feature wise, build quality wise and lens selection wise)."

Completely false.

In reply to:

aegarcia: A couple of years back Sony advertised they were after Nikon's second spot in the camera industry. That Nikon is withdrawing from China and Brazil could be some of the effects.

Where did you read that Nikon is withdrawing from China? They are shutting down a point and shoot and lens factory, not pulling out of the market.

Link | Posted on Nov 8, 2017 at 06:02 UTC

So... Nikon is pulling out of a market of 200+ million people. I'm struggling to understand how they could possibly think this is a good idea.

timberedplum: Who makes/designs these lenses? I know it was zeiss with V mount, fuji w/ H mount, but who makes these? I can't seem to find it anywhere. Are they in-house?

Sorry, my DJI response was to Sven who asked who was behind Hasselblad technically (Hasselblad) and economically (DJI).

waldoh: Get your pitchforks ready!

JK, if commercial means recording a music video, travel short or any pictures used for marketing purposes I don't see a problem.

At the same time for a town run primarily off of tourism, this is a short sighted move.

The grey area is huge. I would go and take pictures for my own house and get around paying that fee. If someone decides months later they want to buy the picture, Positano cannot possibly track me down or get the money.

I doubt they would want to, either, assuming you didn't set up lights and diffusers, etc. in the middle of the sidewalk or on the hillside for what you were shooting. Now, had you done so, they would probably have asked to see your permit.

This law seems to be directed at large commercial shoots that get in the way of the people in the city.

And the A9 at 20 FPS isn't far off video, either.

Sure. But if that's what the OP needs/wants... and since the 5DIV creates motion JPEG 4k video, it seems to me it would be the ideal choice for that sort of thing.

The OP wrote: "I wonder what the stills would look like taken from the 4K video."

So, why, exactly, would the 5D4 be your last choice for extracting stills from 4k video?

Avatar480234: There is a nice comparo over at Imaging Resource pitting the A7Riii with the Fuji GFX, the Nikon D850 and the Canon 5Div.
Judge for yourself how well the cameras perform.

Sony's JPEG sharpening is much better and less heavy-handed than Nikon's or Canon's.

I think the Canon 5D MkIV can do this for you, with its motion JPEG video capture. It's essentially a series of stills.

"Mystery switch" = Tamron VC switch, probably.

I'm not seeing a yellow cast in the Sony shot... it just seems more brown. The Nikon's skin tone looks the most natural to me. The Sony seems a bit sharper, but I'm not sure if it's exposure since the image appears slightly brighter as well. The iris in the Sony shot looks almost like it's been color enhanced, compared to the other three. All in all, the the three leave the Canon far behind.

Deliverator: I'm noticing a strange civility in these threads. Where are the Canikon fanbois, nitpicking and slamming Sony every other post? Maybe they're out shooting...

Have a look at the D850 articles. It's a real shame how a bunch of religious zealots can ruin a discussion.

JKP: I would have liked to see at least one pixel shift image to see what the technology is capable of.

I don't think the software is ready yet. It's not done in camera.
