  • Commented on Sony SLT-A77 II Review preview

    I've just traded in my a99, a55, NEX-5N and RX100 for an a7II, a6000 and RX1000 III. As a committed MF user (well, sometimes I use AF, but usually just the centre point) I'm probably not the...

  • Oops! Well, Olympus, Nikon, what difference does it make so far as video goes? :P

    Panasonic, Sony and Samsung have got everybody else whipped for video right now... Canon, where are you?

  • What is with 4K video but at a frame-rate so low it's useless...?

    First the GoPro Hero3+ Black, then the CM1, now this. Just so illiterate salespeople can shout 'ITZ GOT 4-KAYS!!!!!111!!!111!'...

  • The G3 is probably too old to be relevant for review now, I guess. The newer LGs have the same IQ as the G2 anyway (I have a G2, my partner has a G3, I'm pretty sure they use the same sensor/lens...

  • *Insert obligatory whinge about the Note 4's absence here*

    *Inset obligatory whinge about another 'favourite device' being absent*

    On a more serious note, it'll be interesting to see how good the...

  • Which would be the wrong direction for Nikon. You can't please everybody, and I suspect developing and testing two sets of mechanical components would mean those prices would have to be pushed...

  • Actually, pretty much every modern SoC in a tablet/smartphone has a hardware H.264 encoder and programmable DSPs... How do you think most of 'em can record 4K video otherwise? But you're right in...

  • Maybe not everybody who has a great idea also happens to have a spare $400,000 knocking around?

  • Since the a7II has IBIS, I'm not so worried about the death of A-Mount if it happens. I already have the kit I need so far as lenses go, and my a99 will probably be replaced by whatever a7 model is...

  • Where, precisely, did I make a personal attack against you before my questioning your intelligence in my last post?

    I was the one who was arguing about technicalities such a resolution and DR and...

  • Who is not getting it here? Do you really think it would be sane for Canon to release a camera where the only spec difference vs a 5d3 was 6 extra megapixels?

    Incidentally, are you capable of...

  • Do you always resort to ad-hominem attacks when somebody disagrees with you?

    I'm truly sorry Canon didn't make a camera to suit your specific needs. I'm sure 28MP would have been a complete...

  • Except for the minor fact that not everybody uses their camera the same way as you.

    Having said that, startup times SHOULD be a non-issue with any modern ILC, full stop. They've got more than...

  • It still appears to be a fixed function LCD (i.e. with specific icons in a specific location) which is nothing new - Nikon have been using transparent LCDs like that to indicate AF point selection...

  • Also, the 70D/7DII sensor, as I understand it, is actually a 40MP sensor where half the pixels are used for phase detect AF where this is a ~24MP sensor with a comparative handful of dedicated...

  • My a99 has a top status LCD. I can't say I've ever referred to it - as pointed out here, the EVF contains all of that information and I'm generally looking at that when I'm taking a photo, not the...
