dr.noise: I can tell the difference, but I don't have any "better" or "worse" conclusion, they are just slightly different. On the first slide there is probably some more DR in the Arri shot.

But if I ever would need to shoot a movie, any of these cameras would be fine for me. I would worry much more about other things like screenplay, decorations, etc.

I was going to comment on some of the people here saying the difference was obvious and in favor of the Arri but instead I'm going to keep it positive and comment positively to your post. While it could be argued that there is a difference here it's a nuanced difference not a night and day difference, as some suggest here. Far more important is what you point your camera at and how you compose a shot and as you say, the screenplay and set decorations will make far more of a difference to your final product.

ybizzle: Whether you agree with his line of work or not, his death was tragic. He died doing what he loved and no one can judge him for it.

As the person "doing the thing he loved" is dying doing that thing, they're probably not all that thrilled about it.

SarahTerra: Keep in mind Conde naste is a subversive feminist / liberal /democrat / SJW media organization. They use their publications purely for advancing thier political agenda under the banner of science and tech etc to try and "con" readers into their way of thought.

They have been caught multiple times trying to manipulate articles, stir up fake controversy, fake comments, biased accounts + moderation in order to push their political views.

Not saying this guy is innocent, but Conde Naste is one of the most biased, corrupt and dirty organizations out there...guarantee the management is just as dirty as this guy.

I'm not sure why "social justice" is a bad thing now.

When I'm photographing women, I'm hyper conscious of and respectful of her space. If going to touch her at all to move her into a pose, I ask and let her know what I'm trying to achieve and I touch nowhere "out of bounds" or even near to that. Why are people defending this clown here. Not only do models need to be treat with respect simply from the standpoint of decency, Richardson only makes all of our jobs more difficult when gaining the trust of a model. Terry Richardson is amongst the worst of humanity. To hell with him.

I'm not sure why DP review bothers with a large group of sample images with a story like this. One full res download would make more sense. It's like talking about a great hifi system and then giving audio samples to listen to you your 20 dollar computer speakers.

Andrew: And it doesn't matter how many ports you put on the sides of a laptop. If the hardware inside doesn't work the the ports are pretty useless.

But if the hardware works then ports are really nice to have. It's too soon for going entirely wireless. Sometimes it's such a headache. Technology isn't there yet and my experience with it hasn't been the best.

We've been using Mac computers at our photo lab now since 2004 when we first went digital. Currently have 6 in regular use for photo and video editing. Increasingly we're becoming frustrated too with the choices Apple is making and now almost all of our video editing computers are PC. I feel Apple increasingly pushing a sort of nanny authority on it's users and it's as frustrating as hell. They want you to do things the way they want you to do things. Albeit, in some cases they may be right and I'm just suffering from old man syndrome, I still don't appreciate their preachy holier than thou approach. Like a love you grow apart from. Hey Apple, I'm just not that into you anymore....sorry.

This camera is to photography what Donald Trump is to politics. Sorry...too political?

Hmmm....checking my calendar... Not April 1st. I think I'll send a telegram to let them know I'd like to make a purchase.

biza43: So much ignorance and childish whining. I prefer to see the work that comes from using this tool:

Respectfully disagree. My thoughts are that 8 bit online examples will be a poor representation of the capabilities of any $1000+ camera. Kudos here go more to the photographer and image editor than to the camera sensor. In the first paragraph a "signature method of post processing" is mentioned. A person abilities as a photographer and editor amount to so much more than the latest digital marvel.

Gesture: Actually, if there were any one film that could be brought back into production, I would choose VERICHROME PAN.

We're still processing rolls of that back into the mid 50s. 60 years expired and it often still looks great. Nothing else like. Personally I'd like to see something like Kodacolor-X reintroduced. Gorgeous retro color without the poor latitude of Kodachrome.

filmrescue: Hmmm...interesting but Lyro will need to overcome its reputation as being a solution looking for a problem. They should maybe consider a name change.

It's not that I don't understand the usefulness of this but their first foray into digital imaging was essentially a commercial flop because generally the decision of what you want in focus is easily made at the time a person is taking a picture. Those who didn't know, really didn't care about accurate focus anyway. When I hear "Lytro" the first thing in my brain is that flop of an idea. motion, doing focus pulls in post would be a lovely thing...I get that. I'm talking about a branding issue for them. I don't think their name is doing them any favours but I could be wrong.

Hinder: Can't you just use an app to do the same thing for free?

Or use your photoshop skill set and have total creative control over the look you create. Depends if you put more value on process than product.

On article Crossing the Bridge: Canon XC10 Review (260 comments in total)

I'm glad someone is making fantastic dual purpose affordable cameras with great IQ, dynamic range and features...because Canon certainly seems unwilling to do it. I know they can but instead they choose to once again cash in on brand loyalty. I feel there's only so many times they'll get away with that.

Cool idea but from the get go I thought "I know when I take a picture what I want to have in focus - why would i want this". Love the innovation but it was one of those head scratching ideas...kinda like the new Kodak super 8 camera. I predict that goes nowhere too.

On article Week in Review: One for the history books (161 comments in total)

Lots of cool things to look at here but the power zoom for video, lens attachment...might be cool if you're trying to emulate the look of Matlock or Barnaby Jones but the look of a zooms while shooting motion are at best a mediocre compromise for a camera move. Put your money into a weighted camera stabilizer. This of course in my opinion.

Do professionals really not want articulating screens? Looks solid like a rock though.

DAVY793: PS. I shoot birds in flight, ice hockey and motor cycle sports with my A6000. The A6000 will be even better and easier to control. It's the big lump behind the viewfinder that counts. Lol

Yep...that "big lump" is a key factor. Really what matters at this point because all of the cameras are at least pretty damn amazing. Love sony's direction though.
