MikeRan: It’s not hard to see why. Silent shooting is becoming more and more important for press events and currently Sony is the only one shipping cameras with mechanical shutter performance in silent shooting mode.

A years long head start is paying off for them.

Yes, Sony is a great choice

Niko Todd: They didn't pick Sony because it's the better system, but because it's the only completed one. It wasn't a choice really.
And next year they'll regret for having rushed it, mark my words.

Ha, ha, Canon and Nikon fanboys already crying πŸ˜‚ πŸ˜‚

ibd: 120fps is not just for slow-mo video or faster bursts:
- Better and faster AF
- Better liveview
- Faster flash sync
- Less rolling shutter
- Any frame stacking algorithms, of which Olympus has many, benefits from this: In-camera focus stacking, ND simulation, multi-shot high-res, HDR, etc.

Yes, I believe Sony explained about one of their 30fps (stills) cameras that they make 2-3 additional sensor readouts in between shots.
So this just brings Sony's Four Thirds sensors to their market FF sensor spec.

Magnar W: The law is about advertisements and sponsored content and is limited to retouch of the look of bodies, NOT about restricting the content of independent articles written by the influencers.

The freedoom of speach is held very high in Norway, and is not affected by this law.

What if I publish a realistic CGI image of a human?

This is getting absurd!
The permanently offended crowd has no bound.

Soon you will have to publish photos of slim models with a disclaimer:
"The diet of the model included is well below the calorie intake of an average person"

David Hull: OMG -- someone actually successfully implemented "Double Super PDAF." in a production device. Canon is indeed doomed :-)

I'm waiting for the 'Octo Multi Quantum Uber PDAF' sensors

Me, unstable? Are you kidding me?
Go back up, see your replies and you'll figure out who's unstable.

I just calmly asked a perfectly reasonable question - why do you keep bringing up a $30K cine camera in a discussion about $6K stills cameras?!?

Then you flipped and started trying to insult and nothing else.

You didn't give a single substantive argument why it makes sense to compare a $30K big cine camera to a $6K stills portable camera.

Ha ha, even for the R3 that's supposed to come out any minute you don't know all specs yet πŸ˜‚ πŸ˜‚
This is just sad for Canon fangirls, keep dreaming about your Canon unicorns and rainbows πŸ˜‚
If it's real post a link where you can buy it right now!
Aha, I understand you can't, but you will in the future.
Yes, I know Canon will be the greatest, but in the future πŸ˜‚ πŸ˜‚

Nope, unicorn - because it is not an existing product on the market, you can not buy it, noone has seen it :))
Get it?
It's funny how you can not find any existing product from Canon, so you have to use a RUMOUR about a future announcement, you don't even know when it is going to be announced, let alone when it is coming to the market, any guarantee about the features and price point.
This is just desperate, dude, don't fall so low!

WJMWJM: Shame, no mentioning of the latest 240W USB-C incarnation....;))

Wonder whether POE could work, alternatively?

At 240 Watts that camera probably has a built in electric vehicle πŸ˜‚ πŸ˜‚

Why do you keep comparing against some unicorn CINE Canon cameras, that will cost in the range $20 000 - $30 000 and are only a rumour about an announcement at the end of the year at this point?!?
This is ridiculous.
Canon fanboys are getting desperate at this point.

@Tazz93
Let's say you're right. This begs the question, then, why isn't the R5 30 fps?

Sony explained with one of their latest cameras, can't remember the A9 or A1, that they make 2-3 additional readouts between the image capture readouts and use the data for exposure, focusing, tracking, etc.

The throughputs I mentioned above are meant as "rough" estimate, not raw throughput, but focused, exposed and then processed imagery.

ZeroOne01: Nikon and Sony are screeeewweewed

Are you serious?
Canon is just now trying to achieve 30 fps sensor read-out, not even thinking of a camera with a combination of high frame rate AND high resolution.

And on top of that Sony did achieve this combination at a decent price, effectively setting the price point for the A1/R1.

So now Canon not only has to come up with a decent A9 challenger (the R3), but they are limited by this challenging price point.

At the same time Sony is already selling bodies and working on their next versions.

The R3 will have a low resolution sensor, something around 24 Mpix, 30 at best. This is the only way Canon can achieve 30 frames/sec.

They can not get anywhere close to Sony's 50 Mpix at 30 fps, which is roughly 1500 Mpix/sec captured and processed.

Canon so far have only shown 45 Mpix at 20 fps = 900 Mpix/sec.
They had to build a completely new sensor just to be able to capture 30 fps.

And while doing this they have to be conscious of the price of these cameras, because Sony have already established a pretty challenging price point for the top category A1/R1!!
So Canon have to come up with a camera (R3) that's definitely priced lower than that.

mr.izo: canon is the king in ergonomic camera body design, period. great work, again.

Pentax have always had some of the best ergonomics as well

The 4K screen is there so that you can rip it out and make a beautiful 4K projector out of it

99tollap: Dpreview, please could you do a little bit more regarding testing the cameras on smartphones? It kind of shocks me that you don't do it more, given that smartphone photography is absolutely huge.

Exactly.
More importantly some drop tests as well!

PAntunes: Hard year for canon. They gave all they had with the promos and the 8k hype, with all the DSLR users wanting to switch. And still couldn't beat the Sony's that were out for years. Now with the A1, and A7IV that is almost here, seems like 2021 it's gonna be another hard year for canon...

And to think that 5 years ago sony wasn't even on the map...

@zakk9
The explanation is that only 5-10 years back Canon was outselling Sony 10x-20x times and more.

mferencz: R5 was one of those short reigning kings that history forgets.

I agree with your comparison of the cameras.

I don't agree with the categorisation.
It's too early in the FF mirrorless sector for categories, they've not crystallised yet.
For now manufacturers are just trying to out-manoeuvre each other with features and price-points.

It's not like the established Canon/Nikon top pro lines at about $6K and then a slightly lower pro line with slightly different specialisation at about $5K.

In the UK the Canon R5 sells for 4200 pounds, practically the same price as the Sony A9II for 4300 pounds. I can not call the A9 a higher category if it's the same price point.

Sony A7R IV sells for 3000 pounds, A7S III for 3800 pounds, the original A9 for 3000 pounds, A7III for 1700.

For me right now Canon R5 and Sony A7R, A7S, A9 are all in a semi-pro category.

Yes the R5 will probably end in a lower category, but Canon pushed it up for now, due to lack of competitors against all Sony bodies.
