What the hell? Lexar was doing pretty great in market, I have used their products for quite a long time. Guess that means XQD format is doomed sooner and Sandisk will enjoy monopoly of memory card market in coming few months.

Nick Brundle - Photography: Rather expensive for a sports camera that can only continuous focus at 5 fps with long lenses. I guess they forgot to mention that when they released the camera.

when it comes to Sony products there are a lot of terms and conditions that apply to claimed performance. you need to read footnotes before falling into trap set by marketing blabber.

virtualreality: Tamron and Sigma are lazy because they only present lenses for Canon and Nikon mount.

They aren't lazy but smart, making lenses only for the largest camera systems on market.

I remember watching this technique of photography on show: Time Warp for the first time. I am amazed how much we dont see under normal circumstances everytime I watch videos based on Schlieren technique.

This kit has been available with retailers in Us for ages now. I guess dpreview staff has been too busy moonlighting on youtube while taking free trips for far too long to take a notice. Fun fact: adorama offers this kit with free accessories which makes it really tempting purchase for anyone wanting two good lenses apart from kit lens.

Sony RX10 III and Panasonic FZ2000 are very tempting to get as travel cameras. Good zoom range, features and quite compact with good IQ.

In reply to:

s1rf4n: Anyone else see the rumors that the A9 is overheating....this could be the game changer that wrecks Sony...I really was hoping this camera would live up to the hype.

rumours, you must be joking. Sony has shady QC process which makes even Nikon's QC process look light years ahead. Just look at A6500 overheating test done with 4-5 cameras side by side, you will notice different cameras give overheating warning at different times and shut off at different time periods.

Chaitanya S: that tiny sensor though. I would love to see atleast a 1" sensor inside one of these rugged compacts.

I know but atleast IQ will be better than that 1/2.3" sensor especially underwater and in darker environments.

Eric Calabros: Its amusing that we still haven't seen a single really real-world pro sport shooting test with this camera.

noticed it with F1 and motogp, except for one time appearance of a Leica SL(it was a F1 driver and team photographer using it for pit lane shots) I have never seen cameras other than Canon and Nikon being used to shoot motorsports.

The most important bit is going to be the software, Nikon tried their keymission 360 and it failed miserably due to crappy software.

ybizzle: The first step of the tutorial should be to ditch the iPhone and get a proper camera. ;)

@JT26: in my experience the best camera is the one you left home. Especially true when I am on grasslands of Deccan plateau travelling with only water bottle and see entire pack of wolves in front of my hunting or find leopard geckos.

aros: Why do people complain all the time, if you want a BMW or Audi just get a D5 or M1DX. One cannot dream a Ferrari at the price of Fiat Panda.

well said, most people here cannot even afford that Panda and are complaining about the price of Ferrari/Lamborghini.

anyways found this blog post about that digital back and its certainly impressive:

On article Wildlife photos might not be so wild after all (2 comments in total)

I really hate pseudo-nature photography(above example falls into that category and Indonesia seems to be packed with such pseudo-nature photographers) and what's worse is that these people(some profanities are popping in my mind but avoiding using them here) enter into competitions(Sony seems to be worst offender in that respect) and win prizes which is real kick in ***** for real nature photographers who spend days on end to track their subjects and might spend even longer time to get the desired moment.

On article Sony a9: Why being better might not be enough (766 comments in total)
In reply to:

FlyinDoc: The A9 maybe $1500 less than the 1DX ii but when you add up the cost of the equivalent GM lenses vs their L series counterparts, it quickly becomes a more expensive proposition.

Wish Sony wouldn't charge so much for lenses, which for the most part are no sharper, lighter or more durable than the Canon equivalents. If they want to go for Canon's jugular, that would be the way to do it.

Not only lenses but their support for most part is appalling and stupidly expensive. Much rather stay with Canon/NIkon knowing in India they already have an excellent service network to cater to both pros and non pros.

As long as it doesnt end up being another Nikon Keymission 360... software, usuability and iq are going to be things I will look for before considering between Ricoh and this Gopro.

Chaitanya S: Marketting blabber for ***kissers put together by cherrypicking data.

first of all they have just posted these results based on 1st two months of the years and when they had some crazy discount deals running on their bodies. That includes instant rebates(around 300$) and cash backs on trade in gears(upto $480). During the same period Canon/Nikon didnt have such deals (they had some instant rebates and mail in rebates but none amounting to 800$ off), so basically it looks like Sony was clearing inventory rather than seeing rise in sales.

Also in footnote:
1 The NPD Group / Retail Tracking Service, U.S., Detachable Lens Camera, Full Frame, Based on Dollars, Jan- Feb 2017

this is the biggest joke that DPreview has posted such a clickbait marketing blabber and when sales of just 2 months out of 12 months of year are considered.

noodle yum: Or get a camera with weather resistance (like I have an Olympus OM-D E-M5) and not looking like a dork ;p

Weather resistance doesnt equal to waterproofing. Really dumb comment.
