On article Upwardly mobile: Sony a6300 Review (2161 comments in total)
In reply to:

pkcpga: Not sure how the Nikon d7200 is the benchmark for comparison for a year now and the Sony a6300 doesn't match or beat the Nikon and the Nikon receives a silver and the Sony a gold. I guess cameras have gotten worse with time so they get higher awards or maybe the Sony has such a great user interface it deserves the over look.

No, you are the joke. There has not been a lot of change since 16 MP sensor of 2010. The difference at best has been around 1/3 stop.

NickyB66: Not as good as the X Pro 2 in most areas, but a decent effort by Sony.

X Pro 2 weighs 1 ton? I won't buy it. It's useless. Too heavy even for my truck.

Cameras are not rated on image quality alone. Image quality on cameras have not changed much (at best 1/3 stop according dxomark) since 2010. Even more importantly, if cameras were only rated by image quality, most cameras will score same as most cameras use the same Sony flagship sensor. It was same story 5 years ago with 16 MP Sony sensor that was used in 20 or so cameras by different companies.

There is a a lot to a camera than just image quality.

Also, we are at peak of what can be achieved with bayer sensor, so its idiotic to assume if you expect to see a large jump in image quality when that has not been done for 6 years.

jesus_freak: Sony is marketing this as having "pro-grade" video capabilities, but the usability regarding focus is anything but.

A fly-by-wire manual focusing ring, CDAF, and no touch screen make it difficult to do ANY follow focus/ focus pulling effects (manual or auto).

Pro video people don't use AF.

cgarrard: That is something Sony needed for a while now, too bad they couldn't have done this when they acquired Minolta :).

LOL @ A600. I remember that false rumor, clickbait, by cgarrard. Minolta cameras were already dead (1% marketshare) before Sony.

ttran88: If it weren't for Sony sensor advancements, Canon would have been perfectly fine offering their old sensors.

tkbslc, no 12 MP sensor had more DR than Canon and was rated higher on dxomark especially in cameras like D90, Kx and others.

Sony's 12 MP Exmor Cmos sensor (D300) was released in 2007. It was better than anything Canon.

In reply to:

rrccad: lol.. this story.

I don't know maybe the fact that they haven't released a new camera in over a year, and any new lenses in over 20 months may be a hint?

or the fact that they shut down samsungcamera.com in January?

or the fact they pulled out of photokina?

does anyone REALLY need to reach out to samsung and ask?

The Photokina website is not updated with 2016 exhibitors and booths. Even if it turns out Samsung would pull out, you are posting hot air from rumor sites.

No, he used a past tense to describe photokina. Samsung was at photokina in 2014? No one is wagering bets on future.

On article Action packed: Shooting the Sony a6300 in Miami (241 comments in total)
In reply to:

Siobhan A: "Most of what I shot using the 16-70mm was up at ISO 6400 or beyond and frankly, looked pretty noisy and unappealing."

Sony is still a long way behind where no defunct Samsung was 2 years ago. With no affordable F/2.8 zooms, and no sub-$1000 F/1.4 native lenses, they can't compete with a cheaper Nikon, Pentax, or even a higher resolution NX500 in low light. The $1000 A6300 body with those native F/4 zooms is comparable to cheaper M43 bodies with much smaller F/2.8 primes.

From what I have seen from unbiased reviewers so far the A6300 is still behind the NX1 and GH4 for action and not close do a decent Nikon.

If anyone is wondering, Siobhan A appears to be account of banned M4/3 troll (Everdog, JustHavingFun, etc banned) who uses several dozen accounts

That's his typical standard anti-Sony rant that he has been doing for 5 years.

2016 Photokina is in Sept. You are posting in March.

Admit mistake when you get your simple facts mixed up.

In reply to:

yahoo2u: Interesting how this is marketed....1" sensor, no evf, with a high price....Nikon went down this road with the Coolpix A, a moderate fail... even though the A had a APSC sensor.

"it was competition to Rico"

No, it was not. Coolpix A was released first. Ricoh GR a few months later, with cheaper price, killing Coolpix A.

ewelch: The still equivalent of 8K video.

Who's got the storage space to justify this?

Oh, I know. People who can afford a $50,000 camera and "normal" lens.

Wild Light. read was he said. He didn't say 8K means 100 MP.

DPR did no news story on FS7 and nothing on FS5

nowo1978: The Nikon D4s and Canon EOS 1D X are "purposely excluded" because they are "in a class of their own", but the Pentax 645Z is evaluated with the bunch? Strange things happen around here ...

645Z is not a sports camera so DPR is correct. 645Z isn't in the same class as 1DX and D4s

MFT os not open. It's proprietary mount owned by Oly and Pana.

In reply to:

technotic: The bigger story here is is this the beginning of the implosion of the photography industry in general? Samsung are a highly profitable company from what I know and could easily sustain some losses in the camera division if they saw a future in this business. Is this sign of things to come?

"Sony Digital Imaging is a sole consumer oriented division."

Just a Photographer , not it' not. It's part of Sony pro video division.

They started with the 14 MP sensor also found in cameras like K-7. That sensor wasn't that good in 2010. It would be a couple of years before they released a camera with a better sensor, but by that time they were behind Fuji and Sony.
