sh10453: I guess Phase One is learning bad behavior from Adobe.
They are finding some clever, but gimmicky ways to squeeze more money from our pockets, rather than adding the feature to Capture One as an enhancement.
Of course I'll pass, but if you are convinced, by all means buy a package or two. Phase One needs your help!!! :-)

Well, at least your ignorance comes with a healthy dose of humility! ;-)

Take the same JPEG exported out of Capture One, use JPEGMini and Affinity Photo with 70% JPEG Export, and the Affinity Photo file is smaller and better...what am I missing?

photomedium: The folks at Sony need to learn a little something about timing. Sorry folks but all these cameras should come out either in march or october.
It's the summer here, maybe in AU but in US nobody cares about this. People are out there shooting the sh*t with their cellphones, nobody is into spending $1200 on a compact in july, or EVER. LOL

@ ikaika777 Do you really think these new features (and those from Mk2 through to Mk6) are all achievable with firmware, really? Er...no!

And let's not forget that each new model adds new performance capabilities, which ultimately justify the price increases. Can ANYONE show me another camera (in any format) with this level of performance at anywhere near this price? No, so the price is justified.

D7000ShooterUK: Very nice piece of pocketable kit but I would find it very hard to justify spending £1200 on it.

Why do people equate size with value? This camera packs more tech than anything before it, and appears to deliver performance to back it up.

The fact it has 20FPS with exposure and focus adjustment, plus 90FPS bursts, a 24-200mm lens, Human AND animal eye focus AND the focusing system from a camera that costs 3-4 times as much doesn't equate to value to you?

Surely it is the greatest value proposition that exists given it does all of this in such a compact body that fits in your shirt pocket, literally. Seriously, what DO you call value?

Brilliant, as always.

Camillo: Too bad it uses windows.

As an ex Mac user of 20 years...it is so refreshing to see the shift in innovation in the PC world over the last five years or so. It truly justifies my move to Windows 10, which has been a fairly smooth transition once you open your mind and accept that yes, things will be a little different, and that different does not mean worse. I will never move back to Mac given the level of innovation that is available to me with the Windows platform. Well done ASUS.

Boeing skipper: I wish there was an action cam with a 1" sensor and a fast wide angle lens. Something halfway between a Gopro and a Sony RX0 II. Until then, I'll stick to my older Gopro.

The SONY RX0 and RX0 II have a 1 inch sensor...

Adobe, you are 'so yesterday' to an ever growing list of defectors. I wish every alternative software developer the very best in gaining new customers during this turning point in creative software history.

mpb002: I think that Sony has done a wonderful job with this camera for entry level and middle experienced photographers who do not need to worry as much about reliability in harsh conditions. For those purposes, Canon and Nikon are unrivaled. I personally would shoot confidently in light rain with a Canon RP before I would a A7III. Sony AIII just doesn’t make the cut for more professional use.

Um, no..totally incorrect.

EricDH: Not good news, for those who would love to see more and more serious competition.

Sony did not need competition to develop their full frame mirrorless systems, so they do not really need competition to keep advancing their products. Sony is a company that innovates first and foremost, it is part of their DNA...

Firstly, I love the videos you guys do, best in the business. However....I am getting tired of the industry as a whole, constantly talking about the benefits of a camera for vloggers. It is mentioned so many times that you would think the majority of users of any camera are vloggers and that simply can not be so.

I think you find that vloggers are less than what, 2-3% of sales? Yet, it is talked about as a major flaw if the tilting screen does not work for Vlogging...I get that it is important for yourselves, but please it is so unimportant for the overwhelming majority of users.

In reply to:

Thoughts R Us: I have been a rather severe critic of Sony, but I rented the a9 with the Sony 100-400 and the 90 macro just to check it out. and see for myself. I admit that I was pleasantly surprised. The camera AF is very quick and accurate. The fast and silent shooting with no shutter blackout is the real signature feature, IMHO..it's like a magic trick.

That being said, the camera doesn't seem like it would hold up well over time and outdoor use, certainly not like a high end Nikon or Canon dslr. Notice I said "seem"...we don't know. The camera hasn't been out long enough to have a track record and Sony's overall record of reliability is rather tainted. But perhaps this camera would hold up well, but we don't know. And that's the problem. It's asking a lot to pay this much for a camera and system that is unproven in reliability.

If not for Nikon or Canon releasing soon their FF mirrorless, I still may have added the a9 to my kit. But now I will opt for the Nikon because of brand trust.

It is honest of you to point out that you actually tried a Sony, but it seems to me you are still trying to justify your decision not to buy in to the brand. As someone who has owned several Sony cameras and not a single issue with any of them, I feel safe with my decision to buy in the day the original A7R was announced.

The fact remains, there are a lot of pros using the brand, (yes I know, not as many as Nikon or Canon, yet) and if reliability was such an issue, they would all be jumping back into the previous systems I am sure. That however, is not the case.

I would however question your faith in Nikon's first release mirrorless product as that to me sounds like far more of a risk than buying into Sony's well and truly established mirrorless system. But each to their own...

SETI: OMG! Sony again!

So don't read it and don't bother to fill the comments area with your winging. What the hell is wrong with people? If you do not like Sony, do not read about their products, do not comment on them, go and hug your Nikon or Canon, what ever floats your boat. It really is that simple.

Anulu: I really enjoy to read this comment section, its so funny to see how hurt the truth for the haters 😀
"Nikon will destroy Sony", yeah with three native lens and with Sony sensor 🙂

@Thoughts R Us

It happens with EVERY Sony release, the first shipments are almost always sold out. You really should get facts straight prior to making ridiculous statements.

In reply to:

Thoughts R Us: With regards to Sony's false claim that there is "rapid adoption of the α9 camera amongst professional sports photographers and photojournalists."

Here's the reality about pro's: they don't switch much. Pro's don't chase the latest gadgetry; they value reliability and stability, and what they know how to use. There is too much cost to switching, both with money and time. Because any pro that switches has to forego all of their experience learning a particular camera system and learn another. If a pro knows how to operate their Canon or Nikon without even thinking, and how to adjust for its strengths and weaknesses, that is priceless. To throw all that away and chase the latest shiny gadget is malpractice.

I get that a few political journalists may have switched for the silent shooting; that I understand. But there are probably close to zero sports pro's who have switched to Sony. If Sony had them they would parade them around because we know Sony is not shy about marketing.

Well, here is one Pro that has switched:

If you care to look, you will find many more, increasingly so. But no, Sony will not dominate here for some time perhaps, but they sure as hell are trying to innovate and provide cameras that offer performance above that of Canon and Nikon.

I do not think Pros give a hoot about brand loyalty, it is about the right tool for the job, and if a better tool exists, they will change, but lets see over the next few years...

K e n n e t h: Looks like Plotagraph, but without the required server-side processing--I don't like subscribing to software.

I hope this software doesn't get locked out if/when the Plotagraph people sue

$69.99 is a little steep for a product I'll rarely use

However, I will support this software if they offer a discount of at least 25% off

Why do people expect companies to spend huge sums of money to develop software, only to give it away at next to nothing? Before making these silly comments ask yourself this: Would YOU work for any less money than you do now? It is $69.99, that is not a huge wad of money in the scheme of things.

Wow, over 500 comments now, it always amazes me why Canon or Nikon users bother to read these articles and leave pointless comments, to what end I ask?

Mateus1: With this high price it would tempt me only with 24-90mm f/.1-8-2.4 lens + exposure compensation dial, WR and EVF with higher magnification (not x0.59).

It's overpriced about $450 for what it is.

Ignorance must be bliss... @Mateus1
