On article DPReview TV Episode 1: Sony a7 III review (346 comments in total)

The video quality is stunning, watch it in 1440 or better if you can.......GH5, eh.

Nice presentation.........clean, informative, and photographically very well done.
Not a big "video reviewer", but ones like this will make it easier to commit the time.

Might have to rent one within the next couple of weeks to see if I can handle the different ergonomics, menu. etc.

MrBrightSide: Colors still not approaching the same level as the Phase 180—the skintone patches on the Color Checker chart and the greens in general are pretty muddy. But then, neither is anyone else.
With any luck, the camera makers will stop wasting their time on incremental increases in dynamic range and reducing "noise" and focus on parameters that really matter, like color accuracy and eliminating chromatic aberration (because edge detail is destroyed when you remove it).

........along with better highlight roll off, more like film.

I wonder if they're working on a little higher DR and better highlight roll off with current sensors.......that's something that would make me sit up and take notice.

a little late to reply........ just wanted to acknowledge your "insightful" analysis, & let you know your "out of the box" thinking is much appreciated, and brought a smile to my face.

Best, Mike

If it could shoot 7 FPS (continuous shooting) I'd sell everything and start over

In reply to:

NOWHITELENS: Great shot.
Very high quality.
Should place WAY higher!

thanks, my thoughts also, but I'm beginning to think that the "technical" merits of a photo in these challenges don't matter to most who vote because they don't view the images at full size........gotta try on occasion though, it's just for fun, & interesting to see what others consider good.

Nice......I sitting here looking at that image saying to myself, "what is that"......."how did he do that"

I want to ask you to share how you created the image, but I won't, I'll just appreciate it.

Vik2012: Isn't this what some of the usual suspects expected Apple to build into their latest iPhone to impress them? :D

Seriously high spec. from a company that many thought might never get past prototypes and announcements at the start.

I wonder when this technology will filter down to a more affordable level.

Abrasive Reducer.........I never said all canon users are ignorant. Most current serious cannon users are more than likely aware of the current capabilities of different brands/models.

fwiw.....ignorance is not a sin, it means that someone is not aware of some information, nothing more, nothing less.

entoman.........

"...........don't be surprised if they suddenly announce something that puts them back at the front of the pack."

That would be sweet, very sweet.........I'd like to think that they're working on it, and pretty sure it's on their radar.....I guess time will tell.

Not "dissatisfied" with the results I get, but the additional latitude in processing would be very, very welcome
