  • Well the numbers do certainly support a degree of split on 'racial lines'. Take a look at the % of mirrorless in the first 6 months of 2017... ...I live in Bangkok too and rather agree with his ...
  • What do you mean by this? We should ignore the fact that global statistics show that FF lenses have gone from 24% by volume to 27% of the ILC lens market over the last 4 years and from 49% to 54% ...
  • The futility of this Amazon data mining is illustrated by the fact that your initial post is less than a day old and things have changed. I just checked the top 20 best selling DSLRs and 4 of them ...
  • The problem with your analysis (such that it is) is that it is based on... 1. Part of one data point - Amazon 2. Principally based in one country - the US 3. Over a very short time table - one ...
  • Yes, that is true... BUT 1) It was also the case in 2013 - and what we seeing now is more people buying FF lenses in 2017 relative to 2013. 2) And as another poster pointed out 'why wouldnt you buy ...
  • This really isnt supported by the numbers. If you compare CIPA's shipment data of FF lenses compared to smaller than full frame lenses from the peak of the ILC camera in 2012 to 2017 (Jan to June ...
  • I like the 12-24 f4 zoom from Sony. It seems to get great reviews and is super wide. I rather want to swap it in my bag for the 16-35 f4. Unfortunately the lack of a filter thread is something of a ...
  • I understand your point that value could be misleading but so too can volume. 1. This point is a matter of speculation. To the extent that smartphones have eaten into the ILC market, I suspect that ...
  • Yes, clearly Sony is free to do as it pleases. As I say I am something of a Sony fanboy, so I do find it slightly irritating if they stray off in the wrong direction. And there are two points. 1. ...
  • I really wish you would stop spouting Daily Mail corporate cliches... Lets get a couple of things straight. First, Sony has an abysmal record of shareholder value creation... ....its share price is ...
  • I realize that in the world of Trump we are supposed to look at incredibly simplistic charts. And admittedly they do look good. BUT they can be incredibly misleading. For instance if you look at ...
  • Look I appreciate that you think your 10 year crystal ball is far better than mine. The A9 shoots 20 frames a second - is it a good start? As I see it, it is pretty simple. When a camera shoots ...
  • The reason I disagree with this is question of numbers. Last year there were 1600m smartphone sold and 12m ILCs - a ratio of over a 100:1. Now I imagine a number of the 12m ILC users will give them...

  • Well to be honest if the 'future of sports photography' is all about chucking a whole load of megapixels at subjects at incredibly high speeds - then whatever Sony is planning to produce is rather ...
  • I am a Sony shooter and I would be the first to admit that the Sony A9 is a rather 'strange creature of a camera'. It isnt of much interest to Sony shooters because they are typically travel, ...
  • It looks pretty good to me - certainly a vast improvement over when I last used a Gopro several years ago. 4k 60fps isnt really much of a challenge so long as the sensor is small enough like og the ...
  • Just from my experience of using A mount lenses on an A7rii, this presents two problems. One that the mirror has to be translucent so that some of the light goes to the EVF and some to the sensor ...
  • Replied in For video...
    I am with you there. I use an A7rii for stills but although it takes decent 4k video I much prefer M43 for video (Panasonic) The large sensor of FF makes image stabilisation handheld very difficult ...
  • This isnt a great poll to place in DPR because DPR has a strong bias to the older generation and to still photographers. However, both my children take video as much as stills as goes my GF who is ...
  • I am unsure exactly how true this statement is. It certainly used to be true. The first mirrorless systems used CDAF and the lenses for these need different motors - ones that were very good at ...
