MikeFairbanks: I'm quite surprised that they didn't include 4k (again). Even iPhones have 4k now. Why not Canon?

@Bambi24
your defensive position is quite unjustified in my opinion. Plenty of cameras capable of 4K with no overheating issues. Plenty of decent computers that can handle 4K no problem. If you use a Mac 4K editing with IMovies is a breeze. If internal heating was really an issue Canon could have allowed 4K external recording, while not even the 1DX II or the 5DIV allow that. It is solely a marketing strategy, stop this nonsense.
If you are a youtube vlogger enabling 4K upload allows much crisper video simply because YouTube opens up more bandwidth for 4K vs HD. In fact you are better off upsampling your 1080 to 4K before uploading to YouTube if you care for IQ if you are not recording 4K.

karlkk: A big "NO" to mirrorless.No matter how staunchly Japan Inc. thrashes this useless kind of gadget.

@karlkk
your level of disinformation about mirrorless is pathetic. Stop random unjustified comments.

it should be 4K already. Or a clean 1080 output. Canon mushy 1080 more 720 like is a joke and there is no excuse.

Meh,
to me is always hard to judge not knowing the story behind a technically and compositionally average image. #4 caught my eye and #8 comes in second. Decent travel/street photography. I'd say I have as good or better images I hardly bother even showing my friends (again, knowing the context might give a different value to the images). Considering millions travellers and billions of images, these are ok.

kuklukklak: Pretty terrible cast with ugly skin tones. But this is obviously an easy firmware fix. Given the size/performance, this is a magnificent camera. I wonder what on earth Canon and Nikon are doing when Sony and Fuji have been so far with their mirroless offerings and the industry reports clearly indicate a strong demand for this segment. All I want now is a mirrorless FF system from CaNiFu (I dont like Sony's UI and color profile)

"made smaller as part of a technical exercise". I definitely disagree. If cell phones today were used the same as then they would be still that small. Now we have "smart phones" and not "cell phones", which have different interactive requirements.
1DX and D5 are bigger and heavier than they need to be. A9 might be small for some, but Canikon flagships are macho cameras excessively on the opposite site of the spectrum. But, hey, there are always people out there that need size for self confidence, and not just about cameras....

@PhotoRotterdam
is not an obsession not having the mirror, some features that mirrorless offer are addictive.

@perroneford
Your opinion is as good as mine. I like the form factor and weight of the A7+vertical grip. Larger grip, as you say, matters to many, and so does a smaller one. I often pick to use my A7RII over my 1DX just because of the user experience, even if the 1DX might make more sense in these circumstances. The only place where 1DX body might be favourable is handholding something like a 300/2.8. For anything else, smaller lenses or larger on a tripod (my opinion of course) the A7II+grip is as good if not better.

@perroneford
Yes and no. A9 with battery grip is sufficiently large. 1DX and D5 button placement is dictated by DSLR needs, mirrorless is a different approach and to me the A9 ergonomics make a lot more sense than a 1DX. I agree that specifically for sports it will require more than 5 years for seeing a switch, but in virtually every other area this will happen much more rapidly. I see Sony planning to be competitive with an A9II and a few large lenses for the Olymic games in Japan. Nikon and Canon better pick up speed, I think they stretched their latency as far as it makes sense to me.

@PhotoRotterdam
I agree 100% with perroneford, although I believe we are closer to the shift than 5 years.
I also have to repeat one more time that "size" is also one of the factors. A mirrorless such the A7 or A9 can be as bulky and heavy as a DSLr but also much more compact and light depending on its configuration. DSLRs do not have such option.

Philnw2: The complaint about "mirrorless blackout" from some DSLR owners has been eliminated. I have to admire the audacity of Sony in producing such a beast. Some have complained about the cost, but it is 2/3rds the cost of the Nikon D5 and yet has a much higher continuous frame rate at 20fps. The A9 is an amazing achievement!

@Philnw2
did you see whom "lamest and least informed" was addressed to?....

riknash: What an exciting set of camera specs. Is it better than a D5 or 1DX II? Hope the review does a decent comparison with them along with illustrating how this body will exceed the C&N is all areas including durability. Does it have the weather sealing and built like a tank characteristics required to survive the outdoor lousy weather it needs to withstand?
I don't want to pay $6,000 CA for the body.
Battery life is still very diosappointing.

@Nomoreheroes
I do not think it is apples to apples comparison. I bet the electronic shutters saves energy in burst, and with an EVF there is much less need of chimping. At the and of the day it does not matter if you can hold capacity for millions or images or enough to get the job done. I bet the A9 with a battery grip might have some shortcoming, but i doubt that battery life is one of them.

In reply to:

JochenIs: 20 fps is only for electronic shutter (with compresssed raws?). Please don't publish semi-correct / incomplete / misleading information.

@Deliverator
not ideal but just fine. If you are shooting 20fps you are likely not so concerned of 12 bit compressed. Have you actually shot and compared raw compressed/uncompressed with Sony cameras? I mean, for real not the extreme conditions shown on the internet to prove the flaws of the 12bit compressed....

ewelch: The dinosaurs are on notice.

I think Sonly is not looking at luring the old school photogs but the young ones who are the future market. I think they are doing quite well in this regard. I am sure they are getting the attention of old school tech savvy ones too.

In reply to:

Geekapoo: DPR should spend more time with camera reviews versus iterative hype. Yes, the A9 does appear revolutionary for mirrorless..but DPR seems more focused on "click bait" than a well rounded site giving thorough reviews for cameras and lenses. Methinks it's more about hyping cameras that have the greatest potential to sell (hopefully by clicking to Amazon via DPR)

I do not mind this approach actually. I prefer biting now and then rather than spending half a day on a review

dansclic: What I see is that pictures with ice skaters are so so : overexposed, lack of contrast and definition especially with the 70-200 which is known to be a not so good lens.
Some,others are really good but many seem to lack precision in exposition : too dark or overexposed. Nikon is more accurate.

I do not think so. And even if they did they are not FF cameras.

AngularJS: Question to the DPR team: the head image has skewed vertical lines. Is it because of bad leveling or is it the notorious rolling shutter?

I do not recall these being FF cameras.

RubberDials: It takes 36 SECONDS to clear a full buffer, not 3 minutes.

Max Yurev timed it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ztcf_6sp-Kg 4.00 minutes in.

36 Seconds for a full buffer of 241raw at 24mp to clear completely.

No other camera in existence can even shoot 20fps FF raw at 24mp so the result is academic anyway.

tecnoworld: 2.5 years ago, samsung nx1 came to the market with 28mp apsc sensor, 15fps, great af (if you can set it up correctly) and great video. It was underrated due to its brand and failed.

Now sony upped the game with those specs in a ff camera.

need to add that nx1 came before the marked was ready. I think Sony not only picked a better time, they also had a major role in making the shift happening, and still now it will take a fair amount of babysitting.
Big changes like this do not happen with just showing up with a great innovative product. Samsung lacks patience and commitment. That is also why I would never purchase any Samsung product that is not just consumable electronics.
