Lassoni: How is this turd any better than RED or canon's current expensive EOS Cinema line?

I see you are a toilet half empty kind of guy.

The early naysayer catches the worm.

batmatty: Im sure if it were using a Sony sensor it would reach ISO 40 million and have all the dynamic range!!!! Typical Canon. NO INNOVATION.

Some of you are missing the sarcasm.

detefon: Maybe this is a stupid question but what's the point of switching photoshop to the cloud if the cloud version are also being pirated?

It just took me 30 seconds to find a link to a Photoshop CC crack dated 29th May. Clearly it's doing very little to stop piracy. I have a legit version of CS6 by the way, but I rarely go beyond Lightroom for my processing anyhow.

AbrasiveReducer: Maybe it's a generational thing but I'm amazed how many people make a point that it's just ten bucks a month--as if this will never change. "Dear Photographer, We're thrilled to announce some new, not very useful features. To support the cost of developing these exciting new enhancements, we're increasing the cost of a CC subscription...."

Of course this could never happen because the cost of things you pay for every month never goes up.

No. That's in the heart medicine forum. Not here.

nycgazelle: I am entirely supportive of the subscription based model. I don't feel a need to try and pirate anything. Two Latte's at my fancy coffee shop are more than a fair monthly payment for software I use daily to make money. There is no excuse to pirate software anymore like this when its so affordable. Their developers need to be paid too guys! Jeez. Go F yourselves.

Just wait until all the other software makers follow the same model. If this is such a good model for customers, give them the alternative and let them make their own minds up.

No. This is what happens when an industry gets bloated and rests on its laurels.

The piracy thing is a red herring, although the enforcement of anti-piracy laws is a joke. Most businesses get tax rebate on buying legit software and none for buying pirated.And the dedicated pirates have the least reason to complain because the torrents out there are as updated as the CC software.

The real reason is that the software is mature and developments are so limited the software companies know most people would not upgrade regularly.

ttran88: Gold award for lossy RAW files. If Sony keeps getting Gold awards, when will they ever change the word lossy to lossless?

It never ceases to amaze on this site how often people who accuse others of not shooting enough or properly have ZERO pictures to show in their own gallery. Or any links to any.

Then you know there are instances where part of your image may be seriously underexposed. I am very interested to buy an A7RII but the compressed Raw issue sucks and misses the point of Raw. That is what happens when you make computer game machines more than cameras.

Did you not actually READ Rishi's notes on pushing up the dark areas in the sunset shot?

We are constantly being told this is the advantage of Sony sensors.

Francis Carver: Just pay a few bucks more and get the RX10 Mark II with the superior 8.66x zooming range and constant aperture optics. For video, that one has both microphone and headphone jacks, and also hopefully it does not have to take a 15 minute break after every 5 minutes of capturing UHD rez video.

It also makes shooting conversations, interviews, or performances impossible. 4K looks like a cool gimmick on a pocket cam, but as 4K handheld looks like crap you also need a pocket tripod or a pocket stabiliser.

In reply to:

EdLu: DPReview, please report the sensor size in mm. The designation 1/2.3" is inscrutable to most people. The sensor size of the SX50 is 6.17 x 4.55mm, I believe, which is very small.

Yeah, obviously no one could do anything decent with it

ZorSy: They are very nice photographs, executed technically almost to perfection.
BUT.... they represent another artist vision and execution, they are as such not by the pure lack, rather intention and one's creativity. To me, that is always ever-present and somewhat overpowering feeling, the same as photographing nice painting, the sculpture, architectural detail or - God forbid - someone else's photograph.... Therefore, the statement 'Lobbies, office towers and stairwells seem like unlikely places to find artistic inspiration' stands skewed as today they in most cases represent one artist vision (for which they were commissioned in the first place). We (photographers) merely recognise and record it - even artistically, it is still a 'second hand' inspiration.

I see your point. It is why, when I shoot architecture, I sometimes ask myself the same thing. How much am I riding on someone else's back in aesthetic terms?

I don't knock other people doing it, but it is a question I ask myself.

I sometimes feel as if I am cheating when I take architectural photos.

If they are good, is it down to me or the architect?

But these are terrific.

I think I like "Project Chernobyl" and the landscapes even more.

TORN: How hateful all these people are. Photographers buying this camera know exactly why (or just have the money). Guess some Canon professionals are pretty happy about the high resolution and Canon ergonomics without the hassle of adapting their lenses to Sony bodies, finally.

Sony is good in their own ways. But specs alone just do not tell the whole story.

To some degree, dynamic range is just the new megapixel race.

The sad thing is some people haven't seen through this one yet.

tinternaut: Reading some of the comments, here, has lead me to believe that many photographers are psychic vampires. This has me deeply worried. What if I too am a psychic vampire? Would I know, or am I silently, in blissful ignorance, sucking all the joy from the lives of the people around me?

You have come to the home of hobbyists and equipment nerds. Not so much photographers.

This is like when you go to a hi-fi friend's home. And he shows you his gold wires and valve amplifier.

And then just plays nothing but brass band test music on it because it shows the equipment off best.
