  • Commented on Sony Alpha 7S Review preview

    I agree, I love the 8MP compare option, if I recall correctly I made the suggestion a long while back when dpreview switched over to this new comparison tool. :) I'm sure I wasn't the first to...

  • Rishi, at the longer settings the nikon really has bad CA, at 24mm for example, and it's seemingly equally bad at 5.6 as it is at 2.8. Look at the buildings at the lower rightish.

    Thanks guys, I wasn't aware that you were looking at the actual raw data while setting up the exposures, knowing how many absolute values are in 14bit, you would know how close you are to the...

  • Commented on Sony Alpha 7S Review preview

    I don't really care so much about JPG's. But where that breaking point is, in RAW is what I'm interested in. And not only that, what it looks like. I found the shadow pushing to be quite...

    I think the dynamic range test needs to have a similarily pulled back exposure test to be anything close to conclusive.

    Over expose by 3 stops, and see what they look like. Perhaps the A7S...

  • Roman, sure it's still a 16MP sensor, but because of the shifting of half pixels to add detail, you still need to have sub (16MP) pixel detail. And, I think it's s a stretch to say that you get...

  • If I understand it correctly, the shutter speed you pick, is used for each of the 8 shots, so really, your shutter speed is 8x's as long as selected (likely more since there will be minor gaps...

  • Or no shifting, and just merging a short electronic exposure and long (the set exposure time), and merge for HDR, or just better highlight retention.

  • If you're really concerned about noise, you should just drop the ISO and use a REALLY long shutter, similar to the time of the multi-shot, you'll actually get better results since motion will be...

  • Sure they "could", but realize that image stabalization isn't a tripod, there is still potential for shifting. And with 40MP, every shift would be scrutinized (you'd have much more than 1 pixel...

  • I would love to see some significant cameras in the past, such as the D700/5DmkII, it would help keep the current cameras performance in perspective.

  • More camera the better!

    I kind of wish there was some legacy cameras in there just for a point of reference. It helps us keep things in perspective.

    Perhaps significant legacy cameras like the...

  • The sad thing is, if you are a jpg shooter, and your camera manufacturer can't even take the time to give you a decent jpg option, what's the likelihood that they will adopt something like this?

  • Sorry, but it "flashes". That's the key difference, how can you tell us not to tell you that?

    It's all about "duration", how long the flash is on. A continuous light us always on, so the...

  • Agreed, some of the wide shots look horrible with fringing, almost looks like lens decentering.

    What is more apparent to me is the horrible JPG processing. The G series usually have RAW though,...

  • Thinking more about it, and looking at some of my bright sunlight photos, I could probably get by with 1/4000th, given the lower base ISO settings.... *tempting*

  • Yes, bright primes in sunlight. Though, even at F2.0 or F2.8, if you are shooting in direct sunlight, shutter speeds can be a problem. On my D700 I shoot ISO 125 to get by (at 1/8000th often). ...

  • Even if you use an external recorder, there are benefits of piping the lineout of that recorder to get the audio internally in the recorded footage. Reviewing footage is one of them.
