  • @vadims you realize that the A9 uses a mechanical shutter, right? And shutters are likely going to be in high end cameras for a little while longer.

    The electronic shutter has been around for...

  • Replied in I'll bite...
    There is that popular adage about how "it's not the tools/hardware/gear, it's the user's talent/skill". I've always been a believer that while this is mainly true it is also true that one cannot ...
  • Would be interesting to know - but impossible to collect - just how many Sony bodies are used for video only versus still photography. The Panasonic GH's are likely the real loser(s) here and ...
  • Interesting they say the AF sensor is corroded. That's a lot more that 2mm up from the bottom. Have any pics to show the body and inside the lens area? Curious now!
  • Bit of a necro-post but thought it was helpful to state that yes, face detection is available in DLSRs today (from Nikon) introduced in early 2016. And live view is not used. And as for optical ...
  • @armandino: Agree that it must certainly be ready to release. Sony is no noob and knows when to launch. But the point here is that there will likely be trade-offs - there always is.

    Note a focal...

  • @Preternatural nice post. Didn't realize you were a twiiter-instagram-facebook twit, and don't know why you're calling yourself names. But perhaps take a look at what you wrote, and take your own...

  • Folks need to remember all we know right now is what the Sony marketing machine is telling us. Probably best to wait for the hands-on reviews to truly determine how good/bad this new release really...

  • You're right, I made a typo: it's 28 megapixels not 29 megapixels. Thanks for spotting the only error here in this post. Sorry to see that you, too, suffered from Samsung QA problems.
  • And again, this was my experience. Not trolling as there's nothing to gain. Glad you had good luck with Samsung - I had very bad luck. To the final point IMO it certainly isn't wise to invest into ...
  • Lol, well, not sure what there is to disagree with. This was my experience. And it was dreadful. And implying loose lens mounts is a user error is pretty funny! Suspect we simply have different ...
  • Just a heads-up to hopefully help your GAS: Samsung quality can be quite bad... I, too, was struck with Samsung GAS in early 2015 and bought what ended up being multiple NX-1's before finally ...
  • Actually this test doesn't tell is anything about the lens nor color light loss theories. It just shows how one camera was affected by the different lenses and shooting conditions. It was a fun ...
  • Wow surprising! In retrospect #3 being the prime makes sense. I had assumed the 24-120 based on the sharpness. It's also definitely the coolest looking image and reminds me of the look I get from ...
  • This order looks correct. Image #3 in particular really does pop-up looking like a recent design. Will be surprised if it's not! :-)
  • Okay, I'll try to help make it easy to spot the errors. From the original post: "Now some of you might be interested to understand why blue wavelengths would be differentially absorbed in glass. ...
  • Well, perhaps check your original post. This is very relevant as it totally contradicts your statement about why blue is arranged on the top film layer. It seems like you made a mistake and got ...
  • Not lecturing - simply correcting what was posted! Assume you're simply confused with a number of things based on the posts which are very misleading due to the errors. Not sure I follow the ...
  • Sure, let me help, here's a site that is real easy to read - but it would probably be better to simply Google this yourself or visit a library for technical detail. Jump down to the part on ...
