miksto: Unfortunately it seems that rolling shutter is still awful on Sony A7R III judging by this video:

Just look at UHD@25fps that starts from 25th second.
A7R II used to be among the worst on rolling shutter and this one does not look great at all.
I still want to see more scientific and comparable rolling shutter measurements but cannot find anywhere on the web. Cinema5d.com promised but not yet published such comparison.

I have no answer. My point is you two are going back and forth ad infinitum about something that rarely matters. In other words who gives a shixxt?

I have 3 comments to make on this war between you two. FF cameras in general have problems with rolling shutter because of electronic shutter. Fast panning with still subjects is terrible technique because it makes the viewer dizzy. If you are panning to follow a fast moving subject the rolling shutter on the background doesn't matter because it will be out of focus and blurry from movement.

Now where does Rolling shutter matter. If you are trying to freeze the movement of a fast moving subject without panning which is poor technique in my opinion but I suppose there is a rare situation where someone wants to do it. The biggest problem occurs when photographing something spinning like an airplane prop or a spoked wheel.

So to both of you guys. The A7Rii does have a problem with rolling shutter. While it exists it rarely matters in real life video.

JoFa: „You can no longer summarily decide which camera is going to be better for a given situation, based simply on whether it's Mirrorless or a DSLR“?

Not fully true. If you have to shoot from low levels then there is a clear answer.

Actually Sony's LV AF is the best. Maybe you should say among cameras with optical viewfinders it's the best since that narrows it down to Canon, Nikon and Pentax.

NOWHITELENS
Are you claiming that Clayton1985 is representative of all Sony users? Another stupid statement.

tbcass: I hate when reviewers use vague terms like “several”. What does that mean? The reviewer said it takes several seconds to zoom through the range of the lens. It takes 2 seconds at most while to me several seconds would be 4-5 seconds.

Yes I actually timed it with my RX10iii and it was less than 2 seconds which, by any definition, is not several.

Worrying about what your camera looks like is idiotic.

No serious photographer uses the looks of a camera as a basis of making a choice.

Dougbm_2: But still the main difference between mirrored and mirrorless is the optical verses electronic viewfinder. As much as the EVF is useful for judging exposure when it comes to critical shooting and clearly seeing the scene the optical viewfinder wins.

Exactly. I always use my unaided eyes to judge a scene before I shoot. The viewfinder is used to compose the shot.

It's also possible miksto doesn't even take much video but is just trolling.

Maybe not. What do you suggest?

ZeBebito

That's an extreme example. Certainly there are enough superzoom fixed lens cameras to make a category. There are only 5 different camera categories considered so a couple more is not unreasonable.

Hence the need for a fixed lens superzoom category.

I have to believe all the cameras you mentioned were included by DPR in the "compact" category but didn't make the final cut.

OK, I did a little research and world wide Fuji is #4 behind Canon, Nikon and Sony. That surprised me because I assumed Panasonic and Olympus would be ahead of Fuji. My false impression probably comes from the virtual non existence of Fuji where I live and maybe the US in general.

However what I said about loyalty still stands. Despite being #4 in sales it's #1 in this poll.

cjones63: Conclusion: " makes it a formidable all-in-one for sports and action"

Not so good for: "Sports and action photographers wishing to zoom while also maintaining focus on a moving subject."

What that means is you will have to take a shot or short burst, zoom, repeat. It’s the way I usually shoot action even with mechanical zoom but for others it could be a drawback.

Autobus: The RX10 mk.4 sounds like an incredible camera, I'm very tempted to purchase.
My friend has a Canon 7Dmk.2 he is willing to sell to me for a good price. If I purchase a 100-400mm L lens for it (here the total would amount to about $3300) which camera would take the better sports photos?

Going by what the reviews say the RX10iv has better AF. The 7Dii will have better high iso.
