lensberg: The Sony A7 III .... The undisputed king of kings.

If the D850 was supposedly putting in a medium format equalling performance - This beast just trounces the competition. Always knew this sensor was superior to the D850's sensor.

Just waiting for Canon's response.

@ stevo23 - The white, black and grey placards with text in the center - The rolls of coloured thread - The Jackson - Triggs bottle - The Indian womans face (top left) ... I'm actually comparing low light high ISO IQ.

Marcin 3M: Sony will soon produce a sensor that will outresolve even Nikon and Canon lenses.

Then lens has higher resolution...? You mean resolve higher resolution.

Paul B Jones: And it also takes photos!

Can I use it for high res selfies.... thats all I want to know.... I need it to amplify the vanity without any pixel level degradation to the perfection..... :)

Now this is a real camera in every sense of the word.... Not that... what was that 850 thing... supposedly completing with medium format and all that hocus pocus......

The pictures are not bat at all... Definitely not class leading per se... but pretty impressive overall.

Even from the comparison tool here you can clearly see the A7 RII is definitely superior in low light high ISO... so it didn't come as any surprise.

But they seem to be giving colour an undue amount of importance in contributing towards that 100 score...

And so much for it besting the D810 in DR... that delusion of grandeur came crashing down to earth sooner than expected... Personally think that the Pentax K1 is the best in DR... Imagine if it included ISO 64 too... c'est la vie Nikon... but thats another story.

lensberg: DXO is as dubious as they come...

Are you kidding...??!! Same score... when in reality the Samsung camera is vastly superior to the iPhone camera...!! Samsung's using a 1/2.5" sensor & the Apple's using a 1/3" sensor... Samsaung's even got the brighter aaperture... yet miraculously they score the same...
Apple must have gifted those people working at DXO a free iPhone each for that ridiculous score... apart from the Benjamin Franklin's passed under the table.

Why don't DXO stick to making that crappy software and leave sensor metrics to a more competent (and trustworthy) authority...

Go to Gsmarena -- Click on the recent review of the IPhone 8+ ... Head over to the video quality page -- And check for yourself exactly which camera has superior video... The Note 8 is sharper... better details... better at low light... and in my humble opion looks a lot more natural than Apples video...

The problem with DXO mark is they're trying desperately to be a jack of all trades... and ending up as a master of none...

On article OnePlus 5 camera review (90 comments in total)

Excuse me... In the conclusion you've mentioned micro SD card slot as a pro... BUT the OnePlus 5 doesn't offer any expandable memory option. You're limited to just the 64 or 128 GB internal memory. In fact One Plus has never offered memory card expansion in any of its devices.

John Koerner: If you put the D850 at ISO 64, it crushes everything else available on the planet.
Including the D810 at ISO 64, the Sony A7rII at 100, and it demolishes the Canon 5DSr.

What is all this talk about "crushing" & "demolishing" ... ?! Its a little better than the competition in DR - But damn sure not light years ahead of the competition that it would demolish anything...

And IMHO... the Sony A7 RII is still better than the D850 in high ISO...

Canon need to release a BSI designed FF sensor... then and only then will we really know who is the best in DR & low light...

Henrikw: Why is the S7/S8 not featured in the picture of the top 10 phones above?

Relax... DXO are currently in ongoing negotiations with Samsung... If the price is right... Samsung will eventually wear that coveted crown again...

Jeff Peterman: The real competitor for the iPhone 8 is the Note 8, and it is a shame that this isn't on the list yet. Especially because my Note 8 arrives next week.

The Note 8 is considerably superior... especially in the camera department. But knowing DXO's crooked methodology, it'll probably end up getting between 89 - 91 ... They need to keep it a safe distance away from the "class leaders" after all...

Puppy2007: DxO haven't tested Lumia 950 so the results are incomplete.

Compare the Lumia 950 on gsmarena's IQ comparison page. The Lumia 950 / XL destroy pretty much all the competition...

In reply to:

35mmBlueSky: I wonder how much Apple paid DXO, really a combination of 1/3" and 1/3.6" sensors gets you a 94 nowadays while dual cams with 1/2.3" and 1/2.6" or 1/2.8" gets well below that?

DXO is definitely on Apple's payroll... DXO being this theoretically sensor metrics driven site should have at least clearly stated the new sensor size... I'm still betting its 1/3" ... okay maybe 1/2.9" at best...?! I think I'll wait until gsmarena's review to come to a fair unbiased conclusion...

In reply to:

erotavlas: Wow its always Samsung vs Apple? Why not mention the Sony Xperia XZ Premium?? A true smartphone camera, which IMO trumps both these for less money.

Here are some points in favour of Sony Xperia XZ Premium - features that beat both Apple and Samsung latest phones.

- Sony has a 19MP camera which can record more detail and allow more cropping.
- Sony camera app gives users full manual control if needed
- Sony records at 960fps (Apple and Samsung only 240fps)
- Sony has an amazing 4K HDR display ~807ppi pixel density
- Sony has a 13MP front facing camera
- Sony has a head phone jack and can play High Resolution Audio
- Sony has the least bloatware - is closer to stock Android than Samsung
- Sony has dedicated camera button - take a picture without having to unlock the phone or launch the app, a must have IMO for a camera phone.

And iPhone X is not the first to have an HDR display, Sony beat them to it in more ways than one by making a 4K HDR display.

Don't forget to mention the XZ Premium's heavy handed image processing... abysmal low light IQ and average video quality... One has to keep these 3 factors in mind whilst mentioning the XZs & Premium...

In reply to:

ArchiDeos: None of the above.. IMHO, Sony Xperia XZ Premium is my bet. A little bit of small in screen size, but I can live with that. More features and less $ to spent.

Don't drool over the XZ Premium... 1 2\3 sensor is good, but unfortunately Sony is useless at extracting its maximum potential... Image quality is uninspiring... Very very average at best... Video quality is good, but not at Samsung or LG's level... And low light... forget about it altogether... make sure you carry your tripod everywhere and maybe then you'll get some decent images....

In reply to:

panchorancho: I believe this new GoPro is implementing the new on-sensor die process that allow for faster nanosecond readouts through a variable process. This should boost noise sensitivity allowing for a multi-spectral image in low-light applications! Sony must be scratching their heads falling behind to compete in the action cam market!

That sounds great only in theory... the reality is that they're more than likely using Sony's IMX377 sensor. If you think GoPro is cutting edge in low light & stabilization (optical or electronic) think again...

Sdaniella: bigger brother to 1"Sensor Sony RX0 ... 24mm ff.equiv fov f/4 (f/12.5)

wish RX1/10/100 series offered multiple exposure modes, too

wider 24mm ff.equiv fov lens for FF RX1R/II ... (not longish 35mm ... poor optically)

Wider 24 mm lens... Couldn't agree more. Considering its housing a 42 MP sensor , do we really need that nonchalant 35 mm lens?!

In reply to:

Dr_Jon: It has the same numbers for HFR "Sensor Readout Number of effective pixels" as the RX100V (the RX10 III had the numbers as per the RX100 IV) so I'm pretty confident it has the sensor stack from the RX100V.

I could be mistaken, but I think this is a 6th generation 1" sensor. As Sony says - 20.1 MP6. So 1 gen ahead of the sensor found in the RX100 V.
