retr01976: While I do prefer my MacBook Pro to a desktop, I plan to pick up a iMac to replace my Windows 10 PC which just isn't as useful anymore considering the market is moving towards Apple and Google ecosystems.

If you talk about mobile OS you're absolutely right but when it comes to dekstop OS with more than 90% of market share Windows is still the most widely used operating system in the world.
And even with only 26% of market share Windows 10 is still far more widely used than any version of Mac OS.

makofoto: Sounds like GoPro has a spy in it's midst. I have friends who have given up developing products here in the U.S. because China will have copies out very shortly after they go to market.

If what you say is true it seems they not ordinary copycat because unlike GoPro Fusion which is a work in progress with no many details on specification, price and release date. This Yi 360 Live VR is a finished product and ready to launch to consumers by june 2017 and even they are able to provide improvement in some areas.

beatboxa: According to the Ars Technica report, for 720P, the 960 FPS slo-mo only lasts for up to 5 seconds...
...of playback.

Assuming 24 FPS playback, that means you can record up to 1/8th of a second in 960 FPS slo-mo.

In other words, it does a rate of 960 frames per second, for up to 120 frames. I'd be more impressed if it could actually do 960 frames.

Yeah it can only record super slow motion in very short burst and it plays at 30fps but you can record another slow motion after the first one is finished.

This is a video that shows how its work.

I think its implementation is very good because I can record normal video and then choose when i need to slow it down.

The only thing that prevent me from buying YI Action cam is crappy sound recording, i hope the new version have better sound.

Yudi Hilmawan: For that price i prefer to get Sony FDR X3000R it has built in gimbal like stabilization (BOSS), it lighter, smaller and also splash proof.
I'm pretty sure the video quality is better on the Sony action cam, it also comes with 60m waterproof case and remote live view that works better for something like motovloging than built in screen.

Ok now i understand what are you trying to say but only a 360° gimbal can do that and as far as i know not all gimbal that available on the market can do 360° movements.

And this camera can only tilt up to +/- 30°, can pan up to +/-40° and has a roll range of +/-85°.

I don't know how much degrees the BOSS in X3000/AS300 can move but it works really good for built in stabilization and that's what most consumer really care about.
It also has "Flip function" for upside down recording but it doesn't work automatically.

If you know something I do not know please explain to me!

But as far as i know the Balanced Optical SteadyShot in Sony FDR X3000 and HDR AS300 is moving the whole block of lens and image sensor which very similar like gimbal and you can turn it off so it doesn't make the video jittery if you put the camera on solid ground by the tripod.

Sony GM lens also still little bit better in terms of minimum focus distance and maximum magnification.

@ekidhardt2
This camera is not for someone who only care about still IQ.
As far as i know RX100 series is made for someone who looking for all around camera that can do little bit of everything in one small package and you can't find another camera with same features, size and price.

If still IQ is what you looking for get Sony RX1 series cameras.

@Jefftan
It seems you don't really understand what 315 phase-detection AF points, 0.05 sec AF speed, 24 fps with full AF and AE, deeper buffer 150 JPEGs, or ~60 Raw + JPEGs can do for still.

Anyone know?

Faster and more reliable AF thanks to 315 phase-detection AF points over 65% of the frame and AF speed at 0.05 seconds.

24 fps shooting at full 20.1MP resolution with autofocus and auto exposure for up to 150 frames for Fine JPEGs.

Eye AF is also available in AF-C mode.

The video is also improved it creates UHD 4K from a 5028 x 2828 pixel region (14MP) This means it oversamples by 1.3x in each dimension (1.7x overall).

The faster sensor readout thanks to the LSI also means less rolling shutter in 4K video and electronic stills.

960 fps and all other slow motion modes are now available with twice the recording duration of the RX100 IV – up to 8 seconds of 40x slow motion at 960 fps.

vimrc: why not bring a iPhone instead of GoPro?

Because iPhone more expensive, less durable than GoPro and also you don't have to worry about your iPhone battery life.

bernarte: Wow! Big surprise from Sony amidst all the death rumors for the A mount. It is a marvelous technological tour de force combining a7R2 stills, a7s2 video, a6300 evf lag, and a77ii autofocus features. I'm starting to save up for this one and hope to upgrade very soon.

@bernarte
The answer of your question is in the article.

"The precision AF system also performs exceptionally in low-light conditions, as it will function properly in brightness levels as low as EV-4"

mpgxsvcd: Can you do the same test with the Panasonic GH4, a Full frame Sony that reads the entire sensor, and one of the 1 inch sensor cameras that does 4K? I really would like to see how the Canon compares to the smaller sensor cameras and one that reads out the whole sensor for rolling shutter.

If the camera reads out the entire sensor to produce video then it will have to read more pixels in the same amount of time. This should produce a greater rolling shutter effect.

However, most of the cameras only read out a portion of the sensor so they theoretically should all have the same rolling shutter.

This was an interesting first test but it really needs to be tested deeper to draw any real conclusions.

You can see Sony a7RII rolling shutter compared to some other cameras including Panasonic GH4 in here:
https://www.cinema5d.com/sony-a7rii-rolling-shutter/

Sony a7S II had the same rolling shutter performance in as the a7S
https://www.cinema5d.com/ultimate-sony-a7s-ii-vs-a7s-test-difference/

And last but not least Sony a6300 hold the title for the worst rolling shutter in Sony mirrorless cameras

Sonyshine: Am I missing something?
With that massive 4K crop isn't this just a big, heavy, over priced MFT video camera? Just sayin'......

@ozturert I just want to point out that the crop factor is not the only problem with Canon 5D Mark IV video features and since everything that i've said is video related i don't see anything wrong with that.

Both a7RII and 5D Mark IV has its own advantages and disadvantages but as a hybrid camera i don't see any reason why 5D Mark IV can be a better option.

And I also don't think $5000 is affordable enough for most people, for me a7SII is best afforable 4K camera with Full Frame sensor.

@ozturert But with A7RII you can easly turn the S35 mode into Full Frame by using Speed Booster you can't do that with 5D Mark IV.
Most Canon EF-S lens won’t fit because the protruding rear glass would bump into the large full frame mirror and you also can't use most cinema lenses.
The codec is old, inefficient and there is also no 4K HDMI output.

So in my opinion Sony a7RII is a much better camera for filmmakers and hybrid shooters.

BarnET: About the crop in 4k mode
Please people it just isn't a big deal

There is no video stills hybrid that does proper full sensor read-out combined with proper mp's required for high end stills.

The A7r2 is garbage in fullframe mode. The A7s2 is garbage when shooting 12mp stills. 4k 1.6x crop doesn't break boundaries but it ain't behind the curve either.

With 1.6x crop you can just use Apsc glass. Unlike the D500 crop mode which is truly a damn shame.

as for lenses the new 18-135 with that power zoom accessory or the Sigma 18-35mm F1.8 and the 50-100mm F1. 8 to catch up in regards to light.

I would be dissappointed in the lack off C-log, probably crippled external recording over the hdmi and the crappy motion jpeg codec.

Especially since lately Canon sensors finally start to perform at reasonable levels. Without LOG and with a crappy codec Dynamic range in video is gonna be garbage!

And Canon's Cinema line will leave you running towards a Sony dealer. After all a FS5 costs a quarter of the C300 but in most cases does the same job. Easier too because of that really clever dynamic internal ND.

30mp and 7 fps seems a good middle road. Then the 1dx ITR system is a welcome addition compared to it's predecessor.

Then we have some gimmicks with the dual pixel sensor to top off with a Typical robust body unfortunately without a swivel screen.

Seems like a good effort that suffers from Canonitis.

I don't know about you but the crop mode in 4K video is big enough to make some filmmakers like Andrew Reid from EOSHD and Philip Bloom to make fun about it.

With a7RII you can easly turn the beautiful S35 Mode into "Full Frame" by using some adapter like Speed Booster.

So i think the crop mode in 4K and MJPEG codec is a big turn off for filmmakers and anyone who looking for hybrid camera.

Rmontanta: I have the FZ1000, and for $800 it's a fun camera with stop motion, time lapse and a zoom range I can use to watch birds and get shots I otherwise could not. But at $1,500, twice the price of my FZ1000 I don't think it's worth it, at least not for me. Here's a few shots I took with my fz1000 showing the zoom.

http://www.dpreview.com/galleries/1840658593/albums/fz1000-zoom-samples

You'll never know RX10M3 is worth the price or not if you've never spent good amount of time with RX10M3 to know both the advantages and disadvantages of RX10M3.
Your experience using FZ1000 does not mean anything because you never use RX10M3.

I can appreciate your opinion if you've ever used both camera for good amount of time, but for now you just sounds like a troll.

Mark9473: "1.7X oversampled, full pixel readout (without binning)"
I'd like to understand what that means; any hints or tips?

@EthanP99
The sensor in RX10M3 has 3:2 aspect ratio and record 4K UHD in 16:9 so the resolution is reduced to 17MP in 16:9 aspect ratio.
