Orton Effect?

On sensor AF(preferably dual-pixel variant) is essential for casual video (non fully equipped video rig). The D850 lacks the feature. Maybe in the next iteration. After that Nikon can talk about going mirrorless. Yay!

Triplet Perar: Problem is: why *now*? Why now they can finish the test, but could not in 2015, 2016, and during the entire 2017, until Nikon D850 came, and when they told something that was obviously not the truth?

Hmmm.. fishy indeed.

jcb9001: Dear DPreview, will you please write an article titled "Intelligence Degraded: Why People Expect a $3000 Camera to Perform at the Same Level as a $6000 Camera".

Thanks, much appreciated.

Write an article to Nikon marketing, ask them to use "similar" instead of "same" if the performance is not the same. Thanks.

davev8: Arri magical colour science??? am not a video export but i like the Canon skin tones better ....

If I'm not mistaken, in video world, color correction is done by the color grader. He/she can even replicate the Canon skin tones if he/she wanted to. The main goal is to shoot a footage as flat as possible (max DR), easier to be manipulated later. The opposite is true for still photography. We love the certain look - Canon skin tones, Nikon high ISO etc...

For those who say subscription is cheaper, please read the article. More money for Adobe, more money the customers have paid. Cheaper = pay less, not pay more.

princecody: Is Samsung & Sony having an affair together with their technology lately ☺️

It is called rivalry.

Sergey Borachev: This is the camera for me when I give up on M43 and on MiLCs. With the continuing increase in size, weight and price of those products with sufficient quality, and Sony's 1-inch sensor catching up to the 16MP sensors in IQ and AF capability, it makes sense to spend the money to buy this and forget any more purchases.

Yeah, I know, you said that already. Hahaha..

The 24fps still can be used to shoot 24fps video footage.

Triplet Perar: 1.2/35? 0.9/52? This is Nikon's Noctilux, most likely a premium lens that will cost arm and leg. But has so many lens elements, that will surely be overcorrected. But everything to please the same crowd of 'users' who sing all the same song, and seem to cast the spell on minds of management in the entire camera and optical industry.
So mirrorless FF it will be, with superfast lenses large as wine bottles, and everyone will buy them to take premium shots of their cats or afternoon snacks.

There is no such thing as overcorrected. The best engineers can do is perfectly corrected, but that is close to impossible.

otto k: Hmmm, these might be cine lenses... Size and weight wouldn't be such an issue then. It would make sense from image height in specs as well. We'll see (maybe).

Probably, yes.

In reply to:

Fujica: 36 and 52mm sound like odd focal ranges for a ff sensor.

50 will be marketed as 50mm and 36mm as 35mm. Who's gonna measure anyway. 35 and 50 are very common FL.

So Sony is partially correct in using 12 bit raw in most cases?

In reply to:

Boeing skipper: "It can shoot 1080p60 video internally, or 4K clean HDMI out when paired with an external recorder" from the press release.

People saying this is the perfect camera to mount on a drone, no it is not.
The Phantom 4 Pro also uses a 1" sensor but unlike the RX0, it films in 4K60 internally, all that for a 30% more than the price of the RX0 alone.

Had Canon released such a camera, with a slow f/4 lens, no internal 4K and the same high price tag, people here would be screaming that Canon is 10 years behind.
But it's Sony, it is therefore very innovative.

Had this released by Canon, it won't have 4k, internally or externally. Now you understand why people enjoy bashing Canon.

Why didn't NASA purchase the Sony A9 instead. Lighter and fast AF in live view. It's probably because there are already plenty of Nikon lenses out there. Or just to honor old contract.
