About me:

!! Excited to be buy a Sony a7S II soon! I can't wait! Only 9 days more, maybe! Ack! :D haha! (Oct. 7, 2015; weds.)
Update: Oh my GAHHH! I just got the a7S II about 6 hours ago, at around 4:30 p.m., after work! Ahhhh!!! I'm SOOO excited for this low light monster! It is smaller, and kind of cramping my hands up compared to the D800, which fits my hands nicely. But I'll be making the best of it. "Sacrifices..." :D (Oct. 19, 2015; mon.)

I now am waiting for my first full-frame DSLR! It is the Nikon D800! I can't wait to play with/use it! :) (Sept. 12, 2013; thurs.)
Update: It arrived at 7:08 p.m. on Friday the 13th. :D 2013. Oh boy, two 13s. Does this bode well for me? Yes! I got a full-frame camera. Will it have left sensor focusing problems? I certainly hope not.

Looking into digital camera capture. Fuji S5Pro's dynamic range is really high up there for me. Seems like 'the look' more closely resemble film's ability to keep highlights. Hope that's the case. I just HATE that digital look. 'Crossing my fingers'. HA! ... Update: Woot! I'm getting the S5 Pro. Yippee! My first dSLR. Should be FUN! (Sept. 8, 2007; sat.) --shipment has arrived-WOOHOO!!-(Sept. 11, 2007; tues.)

Oh, yeah. I remember this one on Instagram. :)

Hello Mr. Rose,

I have an idea. If it's not too much trouble, if you do a series like this, with the same subject, but with changes in aperture (and corresponding changes in shutter speed, of course), it would be nice to see it shot on a tripod to keep it in the exact same position.

kooistraalexander: great news! Raw video is so powerful, wouldn't use it constantly but for small projects and tricky shots I'd love to shoot raw. This together with ProRes raw brings it closer to the prosumer and the lower tiers of the pro segments.

It is SO exciting. I saw some really overexposed Prores RAW, and the way they recovered that was crazy! I hope to see this in Blackmagic's RAW, as I'm more interested in an open, free standard compared to Apple.

sludge21017: Why is H264/H265 harder to edit? Edits pretty well on my PC.

I think due to it being a highly compressed codec, and that your computer has to decompress it before editing. That's why converting it to ProRes (even though it's larger) scrubs through so much more smoothly. For you, you probably just have a beast of a machine.

I'm really looking forward to this. I'm just hoping Sony's yet-to-be-released a7S III will have 10-bit 422, and Apple ProRes RAW (or the newly announced BlackMagic RAW)! Come on, Sony, you can do it!

huyzer: Cool!
I will be interested in knowing/seeing what the lag is like.

Hi JJSo,

Thank you for the reply!
I should have specified that I was interested in seeing the video lag, not the photo lag. A wireless solution for without lag would be tremendously helpful. But I'm afraid the lag would be too much for follow action around and maintaining composition.

Very interesting. Will be looking forward to the reviews.

Holy lameness, Batman!
That price is utterly preposterous no matter how much they claim 'This is not a cheap, low quality, low speed toy lens'.
Hold my beer. I'm going to cobble something together myself.
€ 1,199 (approximately $1,390). LAUGHABLE!
There's a sucker born every minute.

This would be great for captioning for the hearing impaired, if they let us download the text, or automatically time it for us, especially for YouTube. Then again, I think YouTube does do this. I'm not sure how well though.

Dang, bummer.

In reply to:

random78: "Nikon and Sony have essentially taken the same approach to solving the problem.... (line skipping on the Z7 and pixel binning on the a7R III)"

Line skipping and pixel binning are not the same approach. Pixel binning gives better noise performance and less aliasing artifacts compared to line skipping. Skipping simply throws away lots of pixels. Binning on the other hand lumps information from multiple pixels into a single pixel. From resolution point of view the end result is similar but binning is much better for noise because instead of throwing away photons from most of the pixels you are retaining all the photons. It is quite likely that in full frame 4K mode A7r III performs significantly better than Z7 in terms of noise and likely in terms of aliasing. Nikon has been using line skipping in its DSLR video for a while and it is not pretty. I would suggest that DPReview should not pass opinions on video quality purely based on specs without comparing the footage from both cameras.

@random78
Agreed. His change is essentially the same meaning, and doesn't point out the major difference. I'd be mad to find out it's not essentially the same, with drastic differences to the final output.

What's up with the inaccurate title (Models Walking at Night)? I was expecting to see and judge actual low-light performance. That was really lame and click-bait in my opinion.

Thank you for this. I was going to ask about this difference.
And I agree. I have a D800, and the line skipping creates too many jaggies for video.
