Newbie4Life: I'm curios as to why you are putting 8K video in the title and in the article in quotes.

This makes it look like it's Fake 8K video (for example something upsampled).

The press release does not put the 8K in quotes and your other products such as the Samsung S20 get 8K without quotes.

Maybe it's '8K' because the type of 8K encoding and actual dimensions are not as yet specified?

Why oh why Canon did you take sooooo long to get here? You lost so many of the loyal to Sony by taking the sloooow train to mirrorless.

It would be about non-mirror flippin time!

Wild Bill - Polo Protog: I will stay with my nice old flip phone. It makes calls and receives calls. It works just like I need it to: As a damn phone.

Some don't realize flip phones are too "dumb" to have any features worth exploiting. The camera sucked. Main problem is most old flip phones are not compatible with 4G networks limiting their usefulness.

Morons. No way Id buy a tablet without full compatibility with existing X86 apps. Why does MS always do this moronic cut off their own knees? Its like removing the headset jack on a phone. I hate incompatible headsets and i hate dumba** bluetooth. Certianly dislike the idea all the apps I presently use wont run on this dumb machine. I dont want to have to play what-if.

Looks like a good incrementally improved version of the a9 Well done Sony! Anyone who needs a good sports camera and was thinking of Sony wouldn't hesitate to purchase this model over the a9 . The extra dollars are not the deciding factor for chosing between either.

If only the senator would put this much concern into the obesity epidemic.

cshyde: Gee would a Chinese company lie about this? Why yes I believe they would.

Gee, who wouldn't lie when trying to preserve their marketplace? There are recently 350 dead passengers due to knowingly witholding a hugely faulty technological design complete with defects from airlines and their cozy relationship with the government's FAA.

marcio_napoli: I fail to understand how people get excited with this cr@p.

64 mp (***small***) sensor (don't even start me on that), all kinds of engineering tricks, processing tricks, etc etc etc, and no matter how you cut it, it still looks garbage at 100% as it has always been from small sensors.

This only reminds me when I played with RAW files from that 41mp Nokia, and yeah, pretty much 41mp of garbage (expected as always).

People will keep falling on the cellphone marketing B$ for how many more decades? Shouldn't it be obvious by now?

EDIT: if you're going to trash me on my "100% view" comment, have in mind everything under the sun looks good on small screens or at screen size view, just about every.single.thing.on.Earth.since.1997.

It doesn't take 64mp 2019 sensors to look good at screen size. My 2001 P&S compact already look "good" on screen size view.

All this camera talk is a huge waste of time if the results are viewed only on a snartphone screen.

Guess we know which are the best camera and lenses to use to cover such an incident.

Gonna check out these two bad bazookas tomorrow! Hope to try on a9, a7iii and a6400. Im not convinced and will need some time to try them out. Canon has been so disappointing with a replacement for the 7DII. Oh well, it great to have choices.

Why is surveillance video quality so poor? A camera store should have 4K video to make wanted posters of the criminal.

It will be an interesting experiment. Instead of a free-for-all with plenty of trash thrown around, urban grunge and graffiti scrawled on every surface, perhaps instead the locale will appear as if at least the cleanup crew comes through often.

On article Sample gallery: Sony a9 with beta firmware 5.0 (491 comments in total)
In reply to:

PhotoKhan: DPR's continued hyperbole about Sony products is becoming extremely tiring.

1. It is self-evidently axiomatic that "Quite simply, it makes the a9 an industry leader in AF tracking ability" can not be said of a beta version of a firmware. (For those that might have difficulty understanding this logic proposition, just check what happened last June with version 3.00 of...this precise camera).

2. Even if it was not a beta version but the definitive release, there's simply "0" content in this gallery that supports this "hyperbole du jour".

My take on hyperbole is that camera review sites have a limited set of approved adjectives to choose from. I'm not going to get hung up on anything they say about beta firmware. A few beach photos doesn't tell me anything I need to know about a sports-action mirrorless fullframe camera. Only reviews that test its capabilities may apply for serious consideration. Meanwhile its nice to read Sony has provided proof firmware development is proceeding for the a9. There's plenty of a9 users who are patiently waiting for these improvements.

Gave up on Flickr when they changed their format several years ago. I really don't care anymore. I use Instagram to put up the few photos I want to share. Zuckerberg will eventually pervert that portal into complete over-monetized greed as it's well on it's way, ever since he bought it.

On article DPReview TV: Canon EOS R review (719 comments in total)
In reply to:

Edmond Leung: Canon definitely will be the No. 1 seller in the forthcoming 4 to 5 years. Professional camera system is lens + camera + color science + accessories + software + know-how + innovation + marketing.
Some companies only focus on making camera components (like camera sensor) can never reach the pinnacle in the camera market because they lack of the above essentials.

Canon reminds me of IBM losing its incredible lead in the PC market due to their arrogant attitude towards non mainframe computing. They owned the PC market but let it all slip away because like Canon, they believed that their mainframe products were superior. Canon was slower than molasses recognizing their loss of market share. The EOS R is so far behind what it should be. How many years before Canon has a sensor which can go directly head to head with the Sony sensors? Do they need a new fab facility?

Androole: Yikes. That gives me more concerns about the durability of a typical light aircraft's wings than the presence of drones, to be honest.

A Phantom 2 (the drone they tested there) has a typical weight of 1 kg.

A Canada Goose, which is not even the largest of the common migratory birds, weighs up to 6.5 kg. If the damage from the drone was as extensive as they say, a goose striking the wing at the same 238mph (as tested above) seems liable to shear the entire structure off...

I do recall a report of a goose coming through an aircraft windshield. It wasn't pretty.

What's more statistically probable, an aircraft with 400 souls on board hitting a drone and the aircraft crashing, or 400 souls killed accidentally by the discharge of small high speed projectiles out of a device protected by the 2nd amendment? I do believe the regulations governing the safe operation of a drone are far more restrictive than those operating that 2nd amendment protected device. Where's the scientific studies showing the importance of restricting those protected 2nd amendment devices to the same degree of concern as to that of the drones? Seems the priorities are out of whack.
