  • What do you mean with "contaminate"? Release spores of fungus that are present in the air by the millions anyway?

  • The point is: a full frame body will work fine with mediocre lenses, often even better than a small sensor with high end lenses.

  • Both of you: show us one picture taken by yourselves where cRAW is a problem.

  • No, but with a stroboscope. After all, you want to shoot video with it.

  • No, but with a stroboscope that is synchronized to the shutter. After all, you want to shoot video with it.

  • Commented on Sony Alpha a7 II Review preview

    IBIS was turned ON in the A7II shot, as the EXIF of DSC00499.ARW clearly proves. This is against Sony's recommendation when shooting on a tripod and has been proven to decrease resolution.

  • Commented on Sony Alpha a7 II Review preview

    The review complains about compressed RAW and the fact you can't change it to uncompressed.

    At the same time, the studio test scene (DSC00478.ARW) has been shot with IBIS turned ON on a tripod,...

    The A7S review points out the benefits of compression (smaller files, higher write speed). That part was unfortunately omitted in the A7II review.

    As for the RAW compression issue - the same compression algorithm is used in the A99 and other Sony cameras such as the RX1. Not the dpreview review of the A99 nor any other review I am aware of...

    @Rishi Sanyal: then why wasn't the issue noticed in the DPR A99 review? It uses the same cRAW compression algorithm as the A7 series.

    In fact, 14-bit RAW is praised as an advantage of the A99 in...

    @Rishi Sanyal: if the isue shows up fairly frequently as you say, then why wasn't the issue noticed in the DPR A99 review? It uses the same cRAW compression algorithm as the A7 series.

    In fact,...

    It doesn't get any truer the more often that myth is repeated. Lossy compression may cause slight degradation in extreme cases, but gets blown way out or proportion in the review and these comments.

  • Commented on Sony Alpha a7 II Review preview

    The different scores in image quality compared to D750 seems to be blown way out of proportion by DPR. Besides, the 6D has higher scores than the A7II which totally contradicts what the review text...

  • USB 3.0 has the same connector as USB 2.0 except a few additional contacts inside which is irrelevant for size. Are they really using that as an excuse for the missing headphone socket?
