cosinaphile: looking over the comments , im reminded of my impression on using these snew sony full frames , a menu nightmare with poor controls poor placement , and unpleasant aesthetics for a whipped cream topping

to me these almost great cameras are hobbled by a design team and control design team that have created a frustrating appliance , rather than a camera , in the manner of a washer dryer that never seems to carry out your wishes no matter how simple , the direct control of fuji is lightyears ahead ... but somehow lacks the grace and form of a ricoh camera with menus to make any shooter smile

a matter of taste, so no point to argue - the marketshare will decide between Sony and Fuji ;-) ...

The Name is Bond: The X-rite is a usability nightmare. Such clunky software.

> I use the Eizo software of course.

and that is the point to buy Eizo or NEC - to have decent hardware and not use x-rite or rebranded x-rite software

Jozef M: Why do a company needs kickstarter??? Globell, talk to your bank.

apparently banks do due diligence and not going to finance this upon researching what is actually going to be inside and/or looking at dE-whatever of the prototypes vs lab grade spectroradiometer :-)

fmian: "the device will remain accurate for years"
"a glass cover that won’t dis-color"

Umm...??

the rumor (substantiated or not - does not matter) has it that Spyder colorimeters (first few generations) being shi$$y products from DataColor ( a company famous for "spectrocolorimer" /sic!!!/ ) were using organic filters that were decomposing :-)

> Use Argyllcms and DispcalGUI. The X-Rite software is Hideous.

except Argyll does not do h/w calibration... so if you have a cheap monitor - OK, but anything above - no go (unless you are happy with factory h/w calibration presets in monitor and vcgt by Argyll on top of that preset)

newe: They seem to be keen on saying it is made in Germany. Are Germans the best at colour management?

no, but can they build a colorimeter from a lot of metal, see BasiCColor Discus...

tongki: I don't trust Sony flash system,
I used HVL-58 system in the past,
It was the most stupid, strange, not dependable flash system I ever use
* no FEL and no one from Sony fans knows about this and they always mentioned how great and smart Sony flash system, I forgot what they called it
* hotshoe problem (taken from Minolta), tilt it up and down and it will become firing or not
* strange head rotation on HVL-58
* optical wireless sometimes and from 4 units there are some not firing and I am sure it is within range
* overheat problems and too quick
* battery drained AA very quick
* no indicator when overheat and shut down

I don't trust Sony system anymore

> and you're ready to pass judgement?

just a disgruntled user expressing his bitterness...

the only wish is that 3rd party vendors somehow might be able to make it compatible with Sony gear... Nissin, Phottix, Godox, now Sony... so much segmention in radio TTL

Gesture: No direct AF point control

How does a serious, high-end camera omit that?

> How does a serious, high-end camera omit that?

just like that, by not seriously targeting fast action (and on photographer's side of the camera too) yet

the more negatives aired publicly the more incentives for manufacturer to make at least something better in the next camera... no more sugarcoating !

Sony, are you taking note?

> Sony, are you taking note?

yes, just compare the market share of Sony vs Ricoh (both Ricoh and Pentax brands)...

On article What difference does it make? Sony uncompressed Raw (621 comments in total)
In reply to:

Chris Joy: If you have Sony's ear, how about small fixes like assigning crop mode to a custom button or the Fn menu? How about making it easier to move the AF point? Or how about speeding up the process of writing images to the card? The long exposure noise issue doesn't appear to have been solved either.

I'm glad the raw fix is coming just to shut up the whiny pixel peepers that don't even own the camera, but there are some real usability improvements that can be made as well.

> Better to have it not only Fn|C# but Memory recall.

true too, but Sony prefers small steps I think

switch between forced APS-C mode and auto mode for FF FE lenses and also switch between Settings Effects ON and OFF __MUST__ be available for Fn buttons assignment !!!

lacikuss: Not enough for me I'll wait for next year's a7 S III with ISO of 1,000,000 and 24MP.

We know Sony will keep updating yearly until they destroy CANIKON somehow, so I'll seat patiently and wait for the right bait.

> What are you going to use until then? I am just curious!

he will use his trusty cell phone camera !
