Now imagine what this technique would yield with a large sensor. I suppose we'll never know as it's completely unnecessary lmao.

Would be better to put the money into cramming more sensor arrays onto cameras. 4-9 cheap sensors and a good combination algorithm >>>>>>>>>>> 1 sensor and a boat load of post processing work.

You guys need to do full video reviews and open the comments up. I've said it before, this halfway stuff is a waste of time.

Aggressive. I like it. Looking forward to resolution tests on these.

On article Sony a9: Why being better might not be enough (752 comments in total)

I can do AF-C with my A7II and adapted lenses. It's pretty useless, but I chalk that up to the camera, not the adapter. I imagine that with that AF joystick and the latest AF algorithms the A9 should be competitive with the top DSLRs in demanding conditions.

cosmicnode: Alternative facts. how can you prove that there would have been a 2% reduction withought Sony sales, photographers could have bought from other manufacturers, I take it the total market is up 5% and Sony's is up by 23% but actual sales figures are not shown to prove or disprove the claim. LOL

Yes, I don't think they would buy a camera at all. What's a comparable alternative to an A7 anything for the money and size?

No, they wouldn't stop taking pictures.... stop being obtuse. We know what's Sony's real impact was on sales over the first two months of the year... at least a lot more confidently than we know what camera buyers *might* have bought instead if Sony didn't exist.

Sony's complete 180 in the FF realm is pretty interesting.

Lol @ completely discounting Sony's ACTUAL sales with baseless speculation that its buyers would have went elsewhere. Most Sony shooters I've talked to went with an A7 family body precisely because of what it has that Canikon don't- myself included. I am a self admitted Sony fanboi but I can at least admit when Sony is wrong or right.... you can't even bring yourself to admit Sony's actual impact on the market.

2 words..... holy crap.

The big question will be if they can deliver that 20fps and 60Hz AF scanning with adapted glass. If so, very well may be game over for the Canikon flagships. $4500 for all this tech is a Crazy Eddie level bargain. This bodes VERY well for the A7III as well.

ZeneticX: I'm more interested with the new double capacity battery. Is it compatible with previous models?

Most batteries are the same shape. That doesn't make them compatible.

rrccad: weird.. how can you increase the overall market by targetting enthusiasts and professionals that ALREADY HAVE cameras..

rrccad unless you have Sony's imaging financials broken out separately comparing the two is meaninglesss... Sony sells a lot more than cameras

EF telephotos work great in AF-S. If Sony can update its LA-EA3 protocol to enable native and maximum FPS with adapted glass I'm sure pros will be happy to move over. Especially with the rumored higher frame rates SAR keeps hinting at. 24+ FPS with all your old Canon glass with a body that's probably gonna be a good clip cheaper than a 1DX makes a lot of the support stuff forgivable.

The market is for cameras sold in that year, not ever.

Robemo: Lately the issue of fake news has become a serious topic. It has become part of our life with so many fast comunication systems crammed with all kinds of information, but unfortunately also with lots of BS. Actually the fine line between 'marketing' and true information was crossed ages ago. There simply are very little or no rules for 'marketing', so the difference between marketing information, dis-information or just plain lying is non existent.
I'd like to keep seeing DPR as an important source of valid and important information about photography. So I don't understand why DPR places this kind of marketing BS in the News section without any comment or explanation, degrading DPR to yet another worthless marketing channel. Is it just about getting as many clicks as possible? Please ...

So @Robemo what exactly is the purpose of this research? Who paid for it and what was the end goal? Provide your sources and source material.

Losses in year over year revenue. Which the article is about. Actually, your post is the first mention of profits on this page.

That much is obvious. You make a post about sales figures on an article about year over year sales changes, and then reply with something about profits- all without any substantiation by the way. It doesn't seem you understand much of anything.

I don't see where this article claims otherwise.

It's really simple. All other full frame manufacturers made losses from last year. Pretty simple concept

bluevellet: "2% without Sony"

So market share is 97% canon and Sony and Nikon at 2% and 1% respectively. :)

No, these figures represent GROWTH, not market share.

On article Nikon announces midrange D7500 DSLR (396 comments in total)
In reply to:

rrccad: pretty spiffy new midrange camera body.

Some people it seems never heard of product segmentation before by the sounds of it.

naturally a lower positioned camera, a cheaper camera won't have all the goodies of the D500. duh? if you want that. get the D500. pretty natural transition for the D7x00 change to go through a bit of a shift once Nikon released that.

Canon if you recall did a even more dramatic shift after they came out with the 7D. the 50D to 60D was light years different, as they shifted the product segmentation.

For ~40mm and up there's no point in developing crop only lenses, except maybe for macro. But they need some wide angle DX primes, and an updated STABILIZED version of the 17-55. $1000-2000 FX primes are not relevant to folks buying $500-600 bodies.
