Now, that button backlighting is already taken, I intend to patent a method of illuminating homes and workplaces by means of independent lighting devices driven by electricity, combustion, or chemical luminescence.

Don't worry, royalties will be small and friendly.

Mark Turney: I’ll stick to my IPS display for now.

@toughluck Samsung is the largest manufacturer of OLED screens for phones and tablets, with a higher quality than LG. What you mention is large screens for TVs, but that is another market and large screens have different properties and present different challenges.

On the phone and tablet screen sizes, Samsung is the OLED leader, uses its screens in a lot of phones (from flagships to entry-level) and they are the very best available.

I'll stick to my proper OLED screen, made by Samsung. That LG experiment of making small OLED screens is not indicative how real OLEDs look like.

dccdp: Comparing this with A6000 and giving it a Gold Award in this context is... weird. If you decide they belong to the same class, the Sony wipes the floor with this toy, even if you only consider the controls. If they are not in the same class, why compare them?

So, when you have no arguments left you avoid the main topic then attack the person? :) Great, very mature.

And, who said toys cannot be sophisticated? ;)

Bye,

Yes, obviously, because A6000 it is not a beginner's point-and-shoot toy. Different classes of cameras. The comparison in this article is apples to oranges.

And no, A6000 does not compete in the same beginner market as this Canon, precisely because of the very differences that place them in separate classes (controls, features, ease of use for people that never intend to become enthusiasts, etc.) Price is not everything. If I'm not a pilot, I won't buy a plane instead of a car, even if you sell them to me at the same price.

The fact they are at the same price point but belong to different classes is an additional argument NOT to compare them. So, we have a Canon camera that only provides for entry-level P&S scenarios, and we have another camera that costs the same, is better in basically every way, as it was built for enthusiasts. And somehow the Canon is still "Gold" in this context? Weird.

@retr It's not about Sony's identity or other fanboy topics, it's about comparing cameras that were built for entirely different target markets.

@NZ Scott Then they should not compare them with cameras that have real controls (and other more advanced features), because they are simply not for the same market. The review is highly misleading in this respect, it suggests that in the class containing the A6000 they are "Gold", when in fact they are little more than P&S upgrades.

On article What you need to know about Sony's a7R III (622 comments in total)

Maybe it is because English is not my native language or culture. But I find these headlines "What you need to know" (or worse "All you need to know") condescending, and in a way offensive. How could a complete stranger know what I (and all others) need to know? And indeed, when reading most of these presumptuous articles, I find that I needed a lot more.

Sure. Heartbreaking. What about those homeless people that live on streets and collect garbage? You see them every day and somehow feel that they are a normal part of your environment, right? You may even think they deserve it. Great. Focus on bears, and preserve hypocrisy. Until you get in their place.

In the mirorrless world Nikon produces hesitations (the 1 series), if clauses and statements. Sony, Olympus, Panasonic and Fuji produce cameras and establish themselves as serious manufacturers.

Good work, Nikon, we trust you will someday have a great mirorrless product we will all read an article about.

I really doubt everybody knows it's staged. The main reason for the popularity of social networks is the feeling that one participates in real-life, not staged, interactions with the world. That's the heart of "socializing": talking to real people, sharing real events and sharing feelings about real events.

sh10453: In my experience, I have found the MicroSD cards to be very unreliable.
I have used various brands, including Samsung 64GB, SanDisk 128GB, ..., etc.
None of them lived up even close enough to the designated capacity.
In fact the SanDisk 128GB U1 stopped taking anything after 10GB of data.
The Samsung 64GB Class 10 is as bad or even worse.

I have given up on MicroSD cards beyond 8GB.

I would think that the heat would cook this tiny card before it completes loading the 400GB.

@karroly, Come on, you know what cosinaphile meant. And the "kibi, gibi" thing is the worst "standard" they could apply to measuring memory capacity. In computers, powers of ten have no useful meaning when referring to capacity. Powers of two are the only natural way to do it, as computers work and store data in binary. Technical stuff, but nevertheless true.

iamphil: Don't leave your precious files on this thing for too long. Increasing flash memory density decreases data retention times. Copy often.

@miksto Waw, you are not really comparing top level SSD NAND with the thing they put in SD cards, are you? "Flash" is a lot of different technologies and qualities. Vastly different qualities.

ottonis: At 600USD the M100 is directly positioned against Sony's A6000, which is Sony's best selling ILC camera.
I hope that Sony will feel the threat and lower the price of the A6300 in order to make it a more tempting, albeit somewhat pricier alternative to the M100.
In any way, competition is a great thing and I hope that Sony will make all the right choices and decisions which may all be slightly accelerated by the new competitor.

This brand loyalty thing may have been valid at the beginning of the mirrorless phenomenon. But now, mirrorless camera brands are already established, and no one would consider a Canon before a Sony, Panasonic or Olympus.
