27" is large? I use the new 42" LG monitor and there are plenty of 32" monitors around. Get real.

Delaying because Sony is blowing them away.

So what? My DNP sub dye can print up to 8"x12" can this one do that? at 600 dpi? On matte and gloss paper? True the DNP is more pricey at a bit over $1,050 online at some dealers but it works fantastic, true to life colors, very fast prints, Cuts size automatically to what you want. Had mine for several years and never let me down. Never needed maintenance.

Probably not for small form cameras with zooms which continue to use the outdated tiny sensors in 1/2.3 format. No thanks I will never buy another one of those which they are worthless indoors--my phone works just as well indoors so why bother?

I doubt the manufacturers will ever offer larger sensors in small form cameras because it will take sells away from their highly profitable DLSRs. So screw them all.

It needs a larger sensor. The time has come to dump all 1/2.3 sensors as just too small to be any good. 400 ISO and up is a joke on this junk--as are ALL 1/2.3 cameras made to date when used indoors. I would never buy a camera today that didn't also shoot 4K video.

Sure isn't much going on in photography these days. DPreview seems mostly just to explore 'the good ole days' when new cameras were coming out every week almost and seems to revisit old camera reviews just to spark interest in it's own website now. Now it's just a trickle and prices are going up. The camera industry got killed by the smart phone.

It seems throwbacks is all dpreview has to talk about these days--not much going on in the compact camera field anymore.

Undoubtedly there will also probably be some dramatic footage as someone takes out their anger against Trump. He is a trouble magnet.

When are they going to stop making these tiny sensor cameras? They are all a joke in low light indoors.

On article Action-packed: Sony a6500 review (1195 comments in total)

Sony probably realized how crappy the touchscreen was so that's why they limited it's use. What a farce by Sony to do something like that and it indicates this camera was not ready for prime time production. No thanks Sony you need to make a professional camera--not a toy. I'll stick with my old A55 camera thanks.

On article 8K Helium Super 35mm sensor on the way from RED (86 comments in total)

It would be soooo nice to have a sensor this size in a small compact carry camera. Maybe someday.

Wide angle is nice but a wide zoom would be much more useful. Try using this at water world and keeping up with the kids--you would have to be with them every step of the way--no use trying to catch them on a ride while standing nearby as you have no zoom at all! Not even a digital zoom. They need to remake this with dual lenses--one with zoom, one with wide angle. Why not two sensors and two lenses?? No thanks as is.

xoio: No so long ago this kind of price could have bought you an apartment to live in!!!

You can buy a mini home for this price! Ridiculous features for the bucks. Like a 2005 camera at 1999 prices.

way too pricey for most of us folks. Perhaps if it had an ASPC sensor it would be worth it but with a 1" sensor no thanks.

Does anyone know specifically what lenses would work with a Sony A6300 if they used this Sigma adapter? Will it ONLY work with Sigma lenses? Or will it work with Tamron lenses such as the 18-300 zoom lense? Sigma just doesn't make enough of a zoom for me to use a DSLR and take advantage of the lager sensor size.

Your right speed ratings are a joke. And then camera makers don't help any by NOT suggesting specific cards that will work with their cameras. When you buy a PC motherboard--usually the maker of the board will list VERY SPECIFIC memory and graphic cards that works with their motherboard. But does the camera industry do anything of that sort? No!

All the photos seem dark and grainy. I don't see the 1" sensor being very effective at all. Heck my old TZ5 seems to do better than this supposedly advanced camera!

Is there a way to adapt Tamron's 18-300 lense so you can have autofocus with the new Sony A6300? Will this adapter permit that?

Link | Posted on Mar 2, 2016 at 15:17 UTC as 108th comment

Too bad Sony doesn't made a 18:1 to 24:1 lense for this camera. Without it I'll never be interested. Need more reach. But the good news is that Nikon does have that reach with it's new Nikon D24-500 (fixed lense but a good one). The Nikon can do just about everything and then some that the Sony does so Sony is losing the battle at this point.

In reply to:

gizmowiz: The big flaw with all of these sports cameras is the lack of zoom. I have gone to places like Pirates Cove, beaches, etc and the grand kids are too far away to capture things up close and personal. And I'm too old to keep up with them!

Things get wet unexpectedly at beaches, pools. Get a life that's not realistic. Lost two camcorders already due to getting splashed by some one other than a family member.
