On article Sony a7S III initial review (1620 comments in total)
In reply to:

Jor1984: Very disappointed in the samples the detail just isn't there I'm not surprised though as it only has a 12 megapixel sensor. The high ISO won't be much better than the higher res competition either. 3 to 4 grand for this camera is a joke. I don't see what your getting for the money. My phone has a 64mp to put that into context.

Yup, not for you. Move on.

Willow w: I saw a sign at the Camera store in the video section yesterday.

"IF ITS NOT 8K ITS DOA"

The truth is higher resolution acquisition makes better lower resolution delivery. Oversampling/Supersampling is just one benefit. Here are 6 more:

Panasonic, your move. You already have 6K. Is 8K next?

You implied 1 camera maker with 8k video (you know, the overheating one?), and mentioned another one, specifically Panasonic, in an article devoted for Sony A7Siii.
If this is not trolling, I don't know what is.

Yup, just like the R5.
A camera pretending to be a camcorder..... AND failing miserably.

Fine system. Let's see if it eats stars.

I hear Mr. Jim Kassson will test it soon enough.

FlyinDoc: The stacked sensor is wasted on the 1 inch sensor. Where is the computational processing to exploit the speed of the sensor? It can shoot at 90fps - why not use it to pre buffer and blend frames to improve low light images? If they are going for the vlogging crowd, why not add a second model with an 18-50mm equivalent?

Sony, just put the stacked sensor with IBIS into an APS-C camera already. That's the one that's way overdue.

Great idea!
Sony should hire you.

DtBB: My main issue is not that Sony keeps raking in the dough after releasing better and better cams, or that not 1 week passes without 3rd party lens companies releasing FE lenses, or that more & more people ditch the old companies to the new kid on the block.

My main issue is that Sony (together with Fuji and Nikon) seem to be the only ones actually TRYING to release ANYTHING worth buying.

Just look at the recent releases from Canon, Pentax & Olympus. Why would anyone update those cams? The new ones are basically rehousing and rebadging of older-NOT-so-good-to-begin-with models.

Here is an idea, instead of coming here to direct your anger at Sony & their planboys go specifically to your brand of choice & DEMAND they release better products:
-Canon, update your damn sensors & bring a better ML cam
-Oly, no 1 is going to pay 3k for a tiny outdated sensor/huge mFT cam
-Pentax, JUST DO SOMETHING

Nothing happened? JUMP SHIP!

Instead of waiting for Canon to decide I DECIDED FOR THEM. BYE!

Sshhh be QUIET!
You will wake up the rabid fanbois.

Ssshhh. Don't be so upset buddy.
I will let you in on a secret....
This TRU guy is a hired Sony puppet designed to stir up dissension and controversy against Sony.
Can't you see that he almost single-handedly creates a whole sh*tload of buzz for Sony?
LLOOOOOLLL

Thoughts R Us: This is really a poor analysis. Take this sentence: "But not everyone in the imaging market is struggling, as Sony's latest financials show."

First, their latest financials showed a huge 73% decline in operating profit for the January through March quarter. That's struggling.

But let's look at it charitably. Let's take that 2% growth for the entire year. That too is struggling. The fact that it's not as bad as some of the others doesn't mean it's not bad. And the trendiness are worse, as the last quarter showed.

It's a disservice to try to gloss over the state of the camera market right now, for all vendors. Everyone is getting hurt.

Just as a rising tide lifts all boats, so does a receding tide drop all boats. Sony has no magic solution to the state of the market.

@ cgarard

Ok. You win. Tbh, I rarely visited your site before anyway (because it was one of the very few devoted to Sony cameras years ago) until I totally dropped it.
You know the reason why?
The format, writeup and analysis as a whole is..... is..... it sounds similar to *scrap*.

You know it when Sony is doing a good job (products-wise and financially as a company) when hordes of butthurts such as TRU, Kandid, Ozzy and their various aliases are in full force throwing shitbombs left and right.

This time around, I was reminded if their crab mentality. You know, when a crab is getting ahead and all they do is pull that crab down (they are in the same container). They just want everybody to be as miserable and as down as they are.

AlexLex: If democrats want to overthrown Trump, they must hire Thoughts R Us for their campaign! Dedicated, persistent, calm, manipulative, "Jozef Goebels like" passionate spinner and liar. Man your future is in politics, not in some pathetic internet marketing promotion agency, where you bash Sony and keep your lil' lies coming like bubbles from machine, You're for bigger things in life...

@cbphoto123

Errr, I think your analysis has some merits but it is a little off.
You see, T3 et al, are staunch defenders of Sony and have the tendency to go overboard by defending, comparing and praising Sony in other brands' fora - but they don't attack, malign, bash and spread lies and FUD to other brands the WAY TRU DOES TO SONY.

It seems that this guy is hellbent on putting down Sony at every turn, making one wonder what agenda he has.

Yup, @cgarrard is used to be a Sony guy years ago (I used to visit his website) but it appeared that he had a falling out with Sony and is now a bitter critic.
Could be that his application for being a Sony Artisan (Ambassador) was turned down lol!

Good job MILC man for unearthing TRU's stinky posting history.
That guy (TRU) should have a job in a third world country propaganda department spewing fake news, lies and FUD for a despot.

Your logic (or lack of it) is jumping all over the place dude.
Initially you were talking about quantity. And then you shifted to quality this time.
Talk about moving goalposts huh?
