AshMills: Looks like a great package. Quite expensive compared to Blackmagic Ursa Mini though.

Both CFast and XQD are incompatible with CompactFlash. XQD isn't Sony's propriety. It's used by some Nikon cameras.

Francis Sawyer: Still uses Sony's ridiculous proprietary storage.

Sony: proudly undermining and rejecting industry standards for decades.

XQD isn't Sony's propriety. The format was anounced by SanDisk, Sony and Nikon in 2010

On article Shaking up the market: Pentax K-70 Review (342 comments in total)
In reply to:

NativePhotog: I'm puzzled that the K-30, which was released in 2012, has better performance, metering/focus accuracy and low light performance than the K-70. Is there a specific reason?

Ratings are not comparable in reviews that are 4 years apart. You compare ratings to k70's direct compeition in 2016

ml6: Still no mentioning of the tremendous GPS logging capability via a smartphone? See here: http://www.cameralabs.com/reviews/Sony_Alpha_A6500/

Yes, the reviewer missed that part. That's a big difference.

Favorable Exponynt: So it can drain the battery in 30 seconds? Impressive!

Yes, you can easily take thousands of images in burst mode even on p&s cameras with tiny batteries. A6300 can do thousands, so A6500 would at least do the same.

Angrymagpie: Does this have electronic shutter?

A6300 did, so this should be the same.

Androole: $1000? So the same price as the RX100 IV, then. Interesting. They usually slot new models in above the old ones in price. Looks like the IV will be getting a nice price cut, then.

That twitter you posted is A6500, not RX100 V

PhotoRotterdam: To quote: "The tonality and color of the images are something else"

This is what you see when you go from APS-c to FF: different tonality and colors.
So, I wonder how the 50MP X1D and the new Fuji will be compared to this. That's the reason you'd like to upgrade. The X1D images I have seen looked very promising in this respect.

Teila Day, we are talking about the same sensor technology. Just pure physics. FF is 2.4 times larger than APSC, but the cropped MF is only 1.7 times larger than FF. So given it's same sensor technology, the jump from APSC to FF is bigger than the jump from FF to cropped MF like 645Z and Fuji.

cameron2, 645Z (like Fuji) has a cropped MF sensor. It's only 17x times larger than FF. FF is 2.4x times larger than APSC, so you will see a bigger jump in image quality by going from APSC to FF than going from FF to the cropped MF (Fuji/645Z)

XF sensor is of course larger than Fuji/645Z

FF sensor has 2.4 times the surface area of APSC. Fuji and Pentax MF are larger than FF by a factor of 1.7. So you will see a smaller jump in image quality going from FF to MF, compared to going from APSC to FF, which is a bigger jump up in sensor size (and image quality).

Barnaby Britton: "Panasonic GH5 raises the video bar even further with the ability to capture 6K footage."

6K isn't video mode on GH5. 6K is still images

Chris Williams already wants A7R II replacement (before even A7 II replacement) when that camera is barely an year old?

Bravo to Fujifilm, Sony, Olympus, Leica & Hasselblad ! The clear leaders of tomorrow camera market !!

IdM photography, yes there is a reason why A99 has mirror, and the reason is that old DSLR lenses are not optimized for CDAF. The new mirrorless lenses perform fine on their native mount as these lenses were designed to AF fast without mirror.

Mirrorless cameras focus far more accurately if you don't care about continuous AF, as they focus via main sensor which means they don't suffer from back and front focus issues like DSLRs

Most mirrorless cameras released in 2016 have better AF tracking than Pentx cameras. Read K1 review

Pixel shift is not unique. Both Olympus and Hasselblad had pixel shifting before Pentax. And it's not even very convincing implementation as it doesn't work without tripod and for any scene that isn't completely still.

howardfuhrman: Is there a market for the a99 II since nearly all the promotion to date has focused on the A7Rii? What advantages does the a99 II have over the A7RII?

Interestingness, do you realize that dozens of different people post comment here? Some like smaller size cameras. They were posting cons of 5D IV as it's too large for them. Now DIFFERENT people are posting reasons why they like A99, as they like bigger cameras. Are you really this stupid to not understand that?

larger size, battery, PDAF AF with mirror, and tons of A-mount lenses. Also there are diehard Amount users who needed an upgrade for A99

Light Pilgrim: Why Apple calls it waterproof if they will not replace a water damaged phone?

The phone can withstand 30 minutes immersion in 1 meter deep water. That's waterproof. It's not just splash proof.

Teila Day Iphone7 is rated as IP67, which means

6 Totally protected against dust
7 Protected against the effect of immersion between 15cm and 1m
