On article DPReview TV: Fujifilm X-T30 vs. Sony a6400 (440 comments in total)

A good point many are making is how frustrating that side mount VF is on the Sony. For left eye dominant people it puts their nose right on the touchscreen making it unusable. While many right eye people complain about being so far off center.

The X-T30 feels more natural, and as the video says, ergonomics are better too.

Fujifilm definitely has a greater commitment to APSC too.

Canon outsells Sony in both high end APSC and high end FF.
And Canon probably outsells high end Sony lenses 20:1.

Zed Man: I agree with people below. It is hard to take Sony APSC seriously when there are no F2.8 standard zooms.
Those are often some of the first lenses made for systems.
It just shows Sony doesn't take APSC seriously.

Either buy a T30 which is better than the A6400, or buy an XT3 which beats all Sony cameras for video.
Or wait another 3 years for the next Sony APSC camera.

Some are still waiting for the A7000, the NEX 7 replacement, and it's been 6 or 7 years. Still waiting.

Canon already expected that the camera industry will shrink much more within 2 years and they planning to switch from consumer camera to industrial camera. Yes, even Canon is having troubles with the camera industry that they have to start leaving.

#1 Sony said Nikon is their biggest customer.
#2 Nikon is the 2nd largest seller of ILCs and they use Sony sensors. The only larger customer possible is Canon.

You need to stop embarrassing yourself.

Smartphone sensors sell for pennies. Larger sensors sell for near exponentially more.

If you cannot understand how or why Nikon is Sony's #1 ILC sensor customer, no one can help you.

Yes, the make a lot of money from sensors.
Nikon is their biggest and most important ILC customer.
Losing Nikon would really hurt Sony.

But somehow their smartphone business loses a lot of money. We don't know if their ILCs make money either.

The Fat Fish: Great update, the X-T3 is proving to be an incredible camera. All Fuji needs now is:

1) Drop X-Trans
2) Add IBIS
3) Update 23mm 1.4 and 56mm 1.2
4) Improve battery life
5) Improve lens QC

That would make an already great system the perfect APS-C system.

I forget the A7000 stupidity started soon after the NEX 7.

Sony owners were frustrated with their lackluster cameras and dreamed for a professional or high end NEX 7 replacement.
After all these years, it never came. It has been a hoax and a joke.
Still really stupid and gullible people keep falling for it.

Sony doesn't take APSC seriously which they recently reiterated. They don't even make F2.8 zooms for APSC which is the one of first lenses serious systems release. Instead they stuck APSC with lousy F4 lenses.
And remember F4 on APSC is worse than F2.8 on M43.

Sony doesn't report what the make or lose on cameras. They bundle in sensor and other business.
It is amazing that somehow they are losing so on smartphones.

ZeBebito: With these new APS offerings, big and expensive m43 gear makes little sense. No wonder why Panasonic went full frame.

M43 won this in the first 2 seconds of the video.

DPR doesn't use Sony anymore to shoot video.
They do like the XT3.

But the GH5 and GH5s always win.
Why waste money only large heavier more expensive stuff that isn't as good??

Zed Man: As Software and AI improve, I see no reason for FF anymore. It just seems a waste of money for non professionals. AI can do so much these days that it seems smarter to save money, go smaller and get more reach.

These two cameras are good options. Fujifilm appears to be the winner and seems more committed to APSC. Sony treats APSC as 2nd class, but has a nice AF system (AI again).

Software has mimicked perspectives for years, and AI has improved it immensely.

Really stupid and gullible people have said the same thing for 3 years now.

Every time they embarrassed themselves.

You guys are 0 for 10.

They said the A6400 was the answer for enthusiasts. And in that other interview the translation is a bit off, but he clearly is talking about the A6400.

They went on to say APSC must wait, and FF always comes first.

So don't expect anything in an APSC camera for a long time that is not in a FF camera now. No 10 bit video, no 400Mbps bit rate, no ProRes, etc.

I've never seen a system when people hated their cameras so much that they spent years hoping for something better...something that might be as good as other systems older models.

Wow, another hilarious Grapejam lie.

He said "Camera and Photo" doesn't cover ILCs!!! LOL!!!
For the best selling Sony it even says #220 in Camera and Photo.

Sony almost never gets below 200, if ever.

The problem with Amazon is many bundled cameras are categorized as "adapters" or "lens" because the bundle has one, but then they are left out of "Digital camera" or "Mirrorless", etc.
But they ALL fall under "Camera and Photo".
When the Z6 came out it was ranked 96 in "camera and photo", #1 in adapters, but didn't show up under mirrorless or DSLRs.

But GrapeJam is so desperate he says cameras don't fall under "Camera and Photo".

Grapejam you are caught in another lie.

Your link says the best selling Sony ILC ranks "220 in Camera & Photo".

Like I said, Sony almost never breaks 200.

Canon has a great number of cameras ranked higher too, so you again humiliated yourself.

Zed Man: 2 seconds in and the GH5 is declared the winner again.

As for the cameras, it doesn't seem close at all. Fujifilm has the better looking stills, nicer ergonomics (though worse evf), and blows away Sony for video.
But I can see why DPR said it was closer with Fujifilm the winner.

That was the dumbest post ever.

D500 is too big. But you need a larger FF body to balance lenses????

Are you so stupid you think an D500 can't balance lenses as well as those A7 bodies with poor ergonomics????

On Amazon Sony never has a camera in the top 100 and rarely in the top 200 "Camera/photo" category.
It is embarrassing that Grapejam even mentioned it.

Did you se how bad Sonyservice rates too!!! Worse than their fake weather resistance.

But they still sell 49% of all ILCs, so that segment is OK.
They said they are losing P&S sales to smartphones which is hurting them.

Ironically Sony lost $450 million in two quarters selling smartphones and also lost what little market share they had.

Sony loses more money selling cameras/smartphones than anyone.

Grapejam

Thanks for showing you lie about everything.

Even you own link shows that the A6400 replaced the A6000 as Sony's best selling camera, not the A7iii.

Sony's marketshare this year will be about 10% globally because they lost the A6000.
Even Sony in Germany said expect lower market share.

But thanks for showing Canon sells 6 of the top 11 cameras in Japan. And the total value is still far more than Sony. Lol!!!

But only a complete moron thinks most pros buy their cameras online and are happy with Sonys terrible support.

Sony's best selling camera in 2018 globally was the A6000, a cheap camera with no 4k, and poor ergonomics.

Without it, Sony's global market share would have been below 10%.
