xander18: Interesting that the photos show a phone plugged directly into the HDMI port with a Sony branded cable. Using a phone as a monitor is a common workaround but the wireless connection is finnicky and laggy, if this allows you to use a phone directly as a wired monitor it would be an awesome feature that IMO would totally make up for the tilt screen.

That's a feature of the new Sony phone - direct HDMI input. I don't think any other phones can do that. (I'm prepared to be wrong, however.)

Fascinating! Excellent insights on what must surely be a fascinating and very challenging job. (I'm jealous in the extreme.)

So incredibly stupid, from every angle.

Or, buy one of these and get similar results for one third the price. https://www.amazon.com/Camflix-Digitizing-Adapter-120-Negatives/dp/B08122F73Z/ref=pd_sbs_421_t_0/138-5024483-9244125

paulfulper: I wish I could use it for birding , but then again it probably doesn't do still photography......and it must cost $90.000

More like $200,000.

Meanwhile, Adorama forces out their best brand ambassador and customer advocate, Helen Oster. Messed up priorities there, if you ask me.

Kudos to Sony for a very useful update. The EyeAF updates are great. And I'm especially happy to (finally) have a built-in intervalometer back.

Maoby: The beginnings of digital (1990-1999) were a fantastic period of innovation and originality.

If you want to see comparisons of the Minolta Dimâge V (1997) in a historical context

Good spring

Wow, that's a cool collection. Amazing how far we've come!

Looks like great improvements and additions! Makes me even more anxious to see what comes with the promised update for the A7riii.

love2travelfar: JPEG images Jono Slack presented on his site are incredible:

not sure why dpreview is not able to reproduce this quality...

Because Jono is a brilliant photographer.

Impressive!

It's my current favorite bag (and I've owned/used an embarrassing number of bags in my time.) Perfect fit for my A7riii with the 12-24mm, 24-105mm & the 200mm Canon (with MC-11 adapter.)

David (r00t): Can someone tell me what is happening here with the D850 and Sony A7R III?

That's moiré, resulting from no AA filter on a high-rez sensor with a sharp lens.

Wow, what a refreshingly candid and straightforward discussion. Yamaki-san is obviously passionate about what they do and this comes out in his detailed answers. (and his willingness to praise what other have done.)

Dear DPReview, Can we please have a setting that will automatically block all articles about Kickstarter projects? It would make the world a better place. Thanks.

Grumpyrocker: They're having a laugh with that 10 to 11 upgrade price. No thanks Phase One, you go into the same pile I left my Adobe subscription in.

I agree. Too high and too soon. (I just upgraded to 10 in May.)
