I cannot find information about the sensor size, it only says "CMOS sensor with 1.9 million extra-large pixels" based on the lion picture I bet is a cellphone size sensor.

mpgxsvcd: Time to cancel that GoPro plus membership. I am not sure they will be around long enough to take advantage of it.

That's the result of selling over-priced products in a very competitive market. Sorry for those 200 people.

entoman: Let's get this straight - I have no objection whatsoever to DPR using promotional videos from Sony or any other manufacturer.

The problem here is that DPR should make the Sony sponsorship much more obvious, by extending the title to "Shooting Dog Portraits with the Sony a6300 - a video sponsored by Sony".

If they fail to do this, readers will believe (many obviously already do, from comments in these forums) that EVERYTHING that DPR writes about Sony is biased in favour of their sponsors, and DPR will lose its reputation for honest reviews.

DPR is not lying about the content of this video regardless of being supported or sponsored. The quality of the footage and the dog pictures are great, so who cares if Sony send DPR the camera for a test drive?

Speedicut: Count me as one of those that finds the sponsored content hurting the credibility of the site. Didn't Amazon, the parent company, recently put an end to "sponsored" product reviews for credibility reasons? It's a fluff piece (heh) and as this becomes a bigger revenue stream it follows that DPR will pull punches in their reviews. The pieces are, "commissioned by the sponsor in conversations with our marketing team, and the sponsor paid for it to be produced." So it's a commercial, Sony hired them to do a commercial. Can a business be ad man one day and objective reviewer the next? It's fine to say "it's business, have to pay the bills". Well, this makes Sony a customer and isn't the customer always right? You don't bite the hand that feeds you.

And a big hurray for Motley Zoo and all no-kill shelters. Check out the great looking basenjis at 6m25s!

Speedicut is right.

Credibility is always an issue if the infomercials (or content marketing to sounds more trendy) are made by the same people who also make other brands reviews, like Steve Huff who talks wonders about anything Olympus or Sony throw at him and always dismisses Fuji as "never good enough". How can you trust that guy's recommendations? That's why I stopped many months ago visiting his site.

But that's the nature of business, regardless of digital or traditional media.

madecov: At this price, I would get one as a camera to carry where I don't want to risk my more expensive equipment. Small, Light weight and inexpensive. I wouldn't cry if it was dropped in a lake or run over.

dansclic is right. I wouldn't bother buying this crappy knock-off that will fail in a few months.

Marty4650: This kit will sell like hotcakes.

$330 for such a capable camera plus two pretty nice lenses seems like a bargain. And you will probably soon see it for $299 or less.

As Olympus and Panasonic keep climbing the food chain in search of higher profits with $800 entry level cameras, Yi hits them hard at the bottom end.

This will get interesting.

I bet in a few months a pre-owned one will go for $99 or less.

The first thing you see is a disclaimer "Made possible with the support of Sony and Amazon". Anyone can understand what "the support" part means.

That's sad. I have the Commlite adapter for my A7 and it is a piece of junk.

What an ugly set up. Specially with the "gold" finish. I you want speed for your Nikon AF lenses why don't get a proper Nikon camera?

El Chavo: By some comments I read here I guess I know why mFT is the bestest best evah:
-According to some of the zealots here 16mp is more than enough for everyone on earth. (What's that?! It's 20mp now?) I mean 20mp is more than enough.
-If the camera they are comparing against is bigger than the mFT its just too big heavy and big but if it is smaller it is not built as well as mFT. (Also apply to lenses)
-If the sensor is bigger than the "micro" you are trying to overcompensate but if it is smaller "it's what you can do with it" (and how dare you compare mFT to 1 inch sensor).
-Dynamic Range? JPEG has more than enough than anyone would ever need because "I say so".
-High ISO? No one should ever shoot more than iso 800 anyways because "I say so".
-If the price is high for a FF camera than it is an absurd but if it is high in mFT you are buying "the system".
-The menus are terrible? Well there is no need to dive in those but have you seen the menus in Sony or Fuji? So dumb right? LOL!

Fun 4 all

Yes, el Chavo has a very active imagination, the thinks a barrel is a house.

Miki Nemeth: I love mobile, low-profile photography. I prefer contents vs technical perfection. Honestly, technically the IQ of these images are really far from what an average user is up to in this community. Still, there is a charm in these minimalist projects. I'd love to see an Instax project, too, from a nice location like Bali, Botswana, Budapest or San Diego.
The collection "50 Photos That Show The Colorful Adventures Of Morocco" is brilliant far superior than this set.

Miki is right. Content is everything and pretty much a good eye will be able to take great pics with any modern camera. Love your pics Michael.

Scales USA: While we can argue all day about the selection of images, I'm wondering how they came to change the world? Photos of multiple wars, none of them seemed to change anything, soldiers are still dying. Same with photos of poor and starving people, things have not really changed.

The truth is they change anything.

In reply to:

JustDavid: I think all these 'World's most...' selections have one major issue: they are limited to the world in which they served their purpose. I come from the former Eastern block and that world was for decades shaped by different media than the Western. So is the Muslim world etc. Yes, we have (mostly subsequently) learned about most of these images but that was after the West got a hold of us. There are huge gaps in the knowledge of the art 'of the other worlds' anywhere you go. So claims that something is 'world's most' are really limited to the world one lives in and connects with... Even if cultural boundaries are much weaker than the political ones

That applies for almost everything, The Chicago Cubs just baca the baseball "WORLD" champions. How many teams from different countries play on the MLB? None. (Is like saying the Barcelona is the soccer world champion).
