On article Nikon Z7 added to studio comparison scene (308 comments in total)
In reply to:

Michael1000: There appears to be less aliasing with the Z7 than the D850, both for JPGs and RAWs.

What I see is that 5Ds continues to be the one full frame that separates itself from everything else, look at "we have guidance of the houses" line:

Thoughts R Us: Once we get a test with a Z lens on the Z camera, then we can really compare. To me this test is a good data point, but no comparison is complete without testing the Z camera with a Z lens.

Those who have report that the Z system produces superior imagery.

They usually do these tests with an 85mm, but the 85mm Z doesn't exist yet (coming in 2019).

Sonys are better at very high ISO (as we already knew from A7R3 vs D850).
The surprise for me is that there is an difference between Z7 and D850, Z7 is visibly cleaner:

Image quality is abysmal, if official samples are anything to go by.

ovatab: I want them to loose "mirrorless" adjective.

My horseless car is called a car for quite a long time now.

We tried calling it "EVIL" (electronic viewfinder interchangeable lens) for a while, but it didn't stick. So, "mirrorless" it is.

Not enough image-quality related choices in the poll.

Jpegs look fine but not sure if a raw converter will know how to handle this properly.

You need more mp if you want to properly resolve that part of the test scene, and without brutal aliasing.

peeyaj: Is my eye deceiving me? The A7III blows the A7rIII in high iso performance!! What sorcery is this?

Less read noise. The difference is definitely noticeable.

In reply to:

sfft: It seems all those stripes are due to sensor flare. Most of the MFT and Fuji shooters are aware of this issue. Deal-breaker for back - lit scene shooters, no probs for me.

However, in almost all of the captures the tones are pretty unpleasant. The color cast on the garments, skin tones etc. The environment seems pretty bad for such a test. Will be waiting for test shots which are done in properly lit environments to make a judgement.

@ssft - That's exactly what dpreview should test.

In all of the shots that show the issue, 85/1.8 lens is used and light is at the very edge of the frame. Put the light elsewhere in the frame, use the same lens. Does it still show? Does it show with a different lens? etc etc

In reply to:

Entropy512: Why is it that you stripped EXIF metadata from the two images that you say show issues with the camera?

Most of your images have EXIF data including shutter speed, but it is conspicuously missing from all images that show problematic behavior.

Of note, the problematic behavior looks somewhat indicative of banding in artificial light - possibly a high-frequency PWM dimming scheme?

Four pictures show the issue: number 5, 6, 15, 25. All have exif stripped.

Serious issue on what otherwise looks like a great camera. We've seen mild striping reports before on Sony cameras with on-sensor PDAF, but this looks bad to the point of ruining the image.

In reply to:

Pete_W: Gold, seriously? With no reasoning. Do you throw a dart at a dartboard and select the award level based on whatever you hit?

I don't see anything unusual about the high marks here despite the still performance and the price. Sony A7s is also a video-oriented camera, and it also got the gold award too, despite it's stills image quality. For GH5s, dpreview clearly states it produces the best video quality they ever tested.

Surely, gold award is completely warranted in this case?

Not a first, A7s got a gold award too. ;)

On article Buying Guide: The best pocketable enthusiast cameras (93 comments in total)

"Pocketable" is subjective. What pocket? Winter jacket? Shirt? Jeans? Whose pocket? Some of these cameras may fit in Yao Ming's pocket, but they won't fit in mine.

I think for future guides you should maybe consider specifying a certain size (for example: maximum size that fits easily into a jeans pocket of an average person), and anything larger should be eliminated.

Massive improvement at high ISO. Seems Sony's claims of reduced read noise are true.

My favorites are the non-landscape ones: #4 and #5.
