Iloveaircraftnoise: The mirrorless tech heads are jumping for joy with this news.... And they have become slightly more conspicuous around town of late...

They're the ones with a big bag of batteries strapped around their waist.

no need to buy extra batteries. we just lug around a powerbank. it powers up all our gadgets including all modern sony cameras.

On article Nikon announces midrange D7500 DSLR (396 comments in total)

The product placement confusing... and a step-up and a step-down in some ways. Is this like a D500 junior now?

my fave is the 85mm 1.8 USM... probably the most amazing poorman's portrait lens especially on an APSC body

DanInSoCal: My most used lens is the 17-55/2.8 IS. My current wish-list lens is the 70-200/2.8 IS II (I have the 70-200/4 IS). My current dream lens is 200-500/4.0-5.6 IS.

the IS of my 17-55/2.8 broke down after several months of use. i think a lot of ppl had the same problem. but it is optically a great lens and very versatile.

TheWhiteDog: It is a strange(though informative) piece. None of this was ever brought up when the Pentax 645 was discussed- or the Leica medium format, or even the new Hasselblad. Why are they singling out this Fuji camera for this type of treatment(essentially saying: "It's not worth it, don't buy it.")? I've never seen this type of article about any other camera, regardless of brand or sensor size. Apparently presells of this camera are really great(taking into account its price). Are other camera companies putting pressure on dpreview to downplay this camera? I hope not, nor, if that were true, I hope that dpreview wouldn't give in to such pressure. But the doubt is there.

I think the main reason is that Fuji's GFX has created a lot of noise and marketing hype in the photography world. So many people are excited for it. And for good reason. The GFX has a lot of potential and made medium format accessible to a lot of people.

Ebrahim Saadawi: GoPro Zero gave us 1080p30p
GoPro Hero gave us much smaller size (and battery)
GoPro Hero2 gave us 4k@15p. 2.5K@30p
GoPro Hero3+ gave us a new higher sensitivity sensor and overal quality.
GoPro Hero4 gave us 4K@25p, 2.5K@60p
GoPro Hero5 gave us 2.5K 80p. LOG & Underwater housing built-in.

In my opinion, where go pro is headed should be first and foremost:

1-Increased battery life. Before anything.

2-Increase image quality. (Specially lowlight performance, better compression quality, less fuzziness and macroblocking specially since they offer a LOG gamma mode (protune) which delivers a lovely, lovely flat image with zero digital sharpening a very flat contrast but it needs a beefy codec/higher-bitrate to work well)

3-User intetface ON-camera with proper liveview

4-4K at 60p. Important as everone is demanding 4K AND Slowmotion for all aerial footage now but they don't understand it is only done using a few options cameras on the market, the 1DX-II -Huge drone and data manag.- or a higher end & even heavier cinema camera. (Until GH5 is in our hands at least).

you nailed it. i would be impressed if gopro can improve even on just #1 and #2.

miggylicious: Was there any improvement in image quality or low-light capability in GoPro5 vs GoPro4? Seems like they reused the same internals from the past decade.

*sigh* looks like you're missing the point

Good job to DPR. Excellent roundup. I would have also chosen the D750 as the winner here. It's simply a really good tried and tested all-around camera with a now affordable price-point. Value for money.

miggylicious: The is very sad news not just for Nikon owners but for all photographers as well. It looks like all the camera companies are affected... And I'm expecting camera sales to keep on falling drastically as the newer smart phones now have incredible image quality, improved low-light and manual mode capabilities, and are now able to reproduce impressively beautiful and natural-looking bokeh using advanced algorithms. Afterall, why bring a separate camera when the smartphone can already do it all (almost)?

VisualFX, have you seen the latest smartphones? I cannot tell if a shot was taken by a smartphone or by the latest full frame anymore. Sure, a big camera will have better DR and cleaner noise but most people will not actually be able to tell the difference anymore. Let's be realistic, the advantages of a smartphone now outweighs the advantages of a big camera for majority of the consumers.

DominicVII: Did they launch this camera just to torpedo the M5? Well done, Sony. Attack is the best defence

i agree with obelixcmm. the M5 simply can't match the 6500. the 6500 is trying to dethrone the xt-2 here.

esmoxd: At last I can retire my aging A900, this looks a clear improvement comparing it to the A99 version 2, the original A99 I felt wasn't a big enough improvement to justify an upgrade.

Agree. My A99 has too many quirks to get a high recommendation. It can get frustrating a lot of times.

Blayse: This is closer to what i had hoped for (unrealistically, I know) from the Canon 5D Mark IV.

I saw a lot of similar frustrated canon 5Dm4 comments here

On article Photokina 2016: Hands-on with Sony a99 II (441 comments in total)
In reply to:

AngularJS: Does this camera mean Sony gave up on the mirrorless AF abilities? What about all those fancy GM lenses for the E-mount now? Should we expect them for the A-mount anytime soon? It's kind of hard to make a decision when 2 FF mounts coexists from the same vendor...

Does anybody know how good is the new SLT? 1/2 of a stop off or did they improve it? What are the limitations of 12 fps?

No. E-mount is here to stay for a very very long time. Maybe the on-sensor AF is just not yet mature enough. There are rumors of an A9 though... maybe Sony can pull it off next year. For now, the A99m2 is looking very good.

JakeB: Can Sony NOT make an ugly camera?

Yeah, it's a tool, got it.

Will no doubt appeal to those with the souls of plumbers.

Don't know what you're talking about but It looks good to me

In reply to:

thx1138: Ok this might sound strange but I'd like to see how this stacks up against the Nikon D500 in a wildlife shootout. Similar pixel density, Nikon's AF is superb, so the Sony will have to deliver big time, but if it's competitive, there are lot's of other reasons I'd choose a FF over a cropper these days. Already use a 5DsR rather than 7DII and only really miss the speed, but 12fps makes that a moot point

if the AF can perform near the levels of 1DX2/D5/D500, then canikon could be in serious trouble. this A99m2 would be a very cheap sports/wildlife beast. im sure we're all very excited to see how camera will perform in the real world!

fatdeeman: Kudos Sony for keeping A mount alive even when people have been calling it dead for years, they could have let it slip away long ago. I'm sure it's a matter of time but it's admirable they have kept it going this long IMO.

agree. im actually surprised that so many people overjoyed to see this release. maybe the specs and feature-set are just that impressive.

69camaroSS: Funny how Canon can ignore a camera system for 4 years and nobody accuses them of abandoning the system, but Sony has to release a new camera every year or it gets accused of jumping ship.

69camaroSS nobody will accuse canon of abandoning their system because its the only system they have. but lets see if the mirrorless m5 can take off.
