pagou: so now private companies have my fingerprint, and i pay for that?

No, they don't. The data from fingerprint is hashed so actual fingerprint is lost in hashing, and that hash doesn't leave your phone anyway.

zzapamiga: Looks like a beast of a camera with RAW recording and the option of a global shutter. I wonder if any Hollywood movies will use this camera? The global shutter would be great for fast moving action scenes. Hopefully this technology will eventually filter down into consumer cameras with a global shutter.

I am not a clueless "troll", moron. I know personally many cinematographers. Yes, I know C300 was used for need for speed. You think I don't know that? LOL. I was around when Shane Hurlbut was testing cameras for Need for Speed.

This doesn't change anything what I said above. . Arri rules Hollywood for digital Completely. You can look up on shotonwhat.com to verify that. Red and Sony are way behind in Hollywood (though Sony at least dominates news/broadcast industry, which isn't Hollywood). Film cameras are still used most in Hollywood. Canon is a joke and way behind in Hollywood. C700 isn't going to change that reality.

Hollywood ? Maybe 1 or 2 in next few years, at best. Arri rules Holywood and that isn't going to change. Red is distant second. Film cameras are probably still #1

ttran88: Anyone complaining about 5dmk4 crappy video should put money where their mouth is and buy this beast.

Lets not forget FS7 which is only $8K and very popular camera (used by Philip Bloom to shoot the Wonder List). It's Emount and can use Speedbooster to give FF look to images, something neither F55/F5 nor C700 can do to.

F5 doesn't require external recorder to do 4K. Sony released FW upgrade in 2014 (less than $1000) that allows F5 to record 4K internally/ .

"It will be interesting to see how this camera fares in the high-end market. It is priced high but falls under the specs of much much cheaper cameras in some areas. A camera isn’t just specs as the C300 proved but I feel Canon has a bit of challenge to make inroads into the market. The cropping of high frame rate in HD is again quite astonishing. I know they are doing it as they don’t want to sacrifice quality but this is a major omission. With the add-on raw unit (price unknown) then it will be able to do full sensor 4K up to 120fps but that is a minor concession.

"The Sony F55 currently retails for around £24,000 including VAT which is £4800 cheaper than the C700 (in the US it is slightly more expensive…so confusing!) This has global shutter, internal 4K up to 60p, HD up to 180fps uncropped. It also has a dockable raw module which lets you do raw 4K at 120fps and 2K at 240fps. It is also 3 and half a years old!"

You are saying Philip Bloom doesn't have money? He owned F55, and used FS7 (along with A7SII and A7RII) to shoot CNN's The Wonder List last three seasons

Or buy FS7. It's less than $8K and does 60fps 4K, 180fps 1080p and 12-bit raw with external recorder like Odyssey7Q+

Tiderace: Equal as video camera as photography?????????? oh my god not, no HDMI 4K, no log, no useful compression, no peaking nor zebras, strange limits on type of frame rates, giant crop poor audio out. Canon makes a mistake thinking that it will compete with the cinema line it would enhance it as a B camera to the C line. Canon with its advancing dual pixel sensor system could IMHO dominate both photography and video if they just realized it.

less compressed? It's not just about "bitrate". Mpeg is inefficient. You can get higher quality video with less bitrate with codec like XAVC.

The "videographers" aren't that impressed with video capabilities

On article Sony a7R II versus a7 II: Eight key differences (397 comments in total)
In reply to:

EdnaBambrick: Where is the evidence for this statement?

"Shutter-induced vibrations plagued our experience of using the original a7R, and have proved a serious headache in several other high-resolution cameras, including the Nikon D800-series."

Jim Kasson tested both the 800 and 810 and found them negligible to the king of all shutter shockers the A7r.

No mention of the Sony's variable 12 and 14 bit files that happen almost at random...

So now that you have been presented with evidence, you are going to post your own image and declare victory? DPR tested shutter and mirror vibrations extensively as the link I posted above shows. It's not something they just made up this week. Read D810 review.

You are changing the topic again to my abilities as a photographer. I never talk about myself, or what cameras I own, or what my religious or political views are on any topic. Stick to the topic.

Gio 645, funny you have a problem with my deconstruction, but you don't believe that a person who is counting comments and has been announcing that straight for a week now, is a fanboy? If you have another words to describe people like that (and you), let us know, and I will use that word.

Yes, there is nothing wrong with the word "fanboy" as it perfectly describe a group of people who are in love with a brand. I also agree that you are a fanboy, as you seem to be very happy about number of comments posted on this review.

However, like I said before these aren't most comments overall, though, as DPR has combined both announcement and review comments (they did the same with X-Pro2)

Both A6300 and A7RII have more overall comments as

A6300 1371 announcement and 2131 review = 3502
A7RII 1250 announcement 2159 review, and 981 on lowlight article = 4389

In reply to:

DuncanM1: Here's a video review of the K-1 including some real world testing of AF-C mode:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DQoFvBMmfFA

At about 12:30 the reviewer discusses the AF; he rates it quite highly...

If you check this guy history, you will see he is googling and posting any site that says K1's AF is good, regardless if the source is is credible or not, he does not care. He is not motivated by truth. He is motivated by defending his brand by googling and finding anything that he thinks is positive, and posting them to forums and comments, regardless if they are true is irrelevant. That's his basic mindset when he posts these links, as he has been doing for a week now.

GrayW: Hmm... it seems that AF-C on a static tripod with the subject weaving in and out of the focus field isn't a very good test of the K-1 real world AF capabilities.

I never cry. I am enjoying myself and having fun. Why would I cry when I am having so much fun?

Funny how you say you aren't a fanboy yet go on to reject the "tests" just because the camera brand you like performed subpar. Other cameras went through the same test and sometimes performed fine (other times not). For K1, the reviewers repeated the test 18 times to address various issues mentioned by people like you, with the same results, and let's also not forget that in side by side comparisons with other cameras, the AF was found to be subpar. You are demanding DPR to not mention any of these factual things about the camera they found that are negative, because it's a pemtax camera, and you you want them to never call you a fanboy? Is that about it? Or is there something else they can also do for you?

Funny part is that all three of you guys insulted me, you with you calling me "a disturbed personality" but yet you are demanding apologies for Rishi for using (the much milder) word, "fanboy". The hypocrisy at it's best.

You should get back to the topic. K1 review wasn't negative. It got 84% (that's pretty high) and a silver award, but the review pointed out that It performed sub par in AF tests (tested over 18 times to address quibbles on the forum), and that's what started the attacks by brand loyalists, who would not tolerate anything critical in a review of pentax gear. I was neutral observer.

Funny coming "troll"accusation from the same fanboys who keep asking DPR to "explain" why they haven't rated K1 best invention ever since slice bread. This guy posting history speaks for itself.

You are the one who is angry, not rest of the world, as your angry reaction to the review continues, despite facts explained to you. AF was subpar compared to other 2015-2016 models after dozens of tests and months of using the camera, that included using the camera side by side with other models. If you are not the definition of fanboy, do we need to invent a new word to describe your behavior?
