24bit: Great pics, but what happens when the drones motor fails and falls on the crowd of people in the stadium below !

Right, lets ban drones but continue to let drunk drivers kill thousands on our roads every year.

I prefer my GH4 for 4K video and my 36mp FF A7r for stills.

Craig from Nevada: I wonder if camera buyers have noticed?

The only way Canon and Nikon could sell their mirrorless cameras is with fire sale prices of well over 50% off.

In reply to:

Serickmetz: Wow the Panasonic isn't even out yet and already looks bad next to that Sony.

Maybe Panasonic should have come out with something innovative instead of just copying Sony and stealing a piece of their pie.

Right, Panasonic added 4K and dropped the price compared to the RX10. bad, real bad.

RonHendriks: You can also compare it to a Nikon 1 series camera.

Does the Nikon 1 shoot 4K video for more than a few seconds ?

Sweets: to Joe Ogiba...
hi Joe, i have a htc sensation and in fact i was waiting for the new max based on specs of the htc one m8. My wife has a one m7 glamor red... very nice phone. But than, i noticed rumours that the max m8 was not real and that htc might work together to realize the next 6inch+ phone or phablet with google, maybe.
Then Huawei anounced the Honor X1, i looked at the specs, good enought for me so... i went for it and ordered it, althought... not released here in the Netherlands, yet. I don't regret that and really...love this phablet...just the way it is...:-). Thanks for your message.

Thanks for the update Sweets.

Joe

In reply to:

Sweets: Personally, i like to read comment of people who know what they talk about. I'm writing this comment using my Huawei Honor X1 7.0 in my left hand. Ordered it at merimobiles and received it the 16th of june.
Mind you, i'm very! happy with it. The first day i thought...ooo...it's huge...now, today, 25th of june i'm already hooked and do NOT want to do without it.
Finally, a tip: it's something new, we should get accustomed to... try it and...you will!like it. And if not, no problem...i do!!!

Is that the Huawei MediaPad X1 7.0 ? I wish they come out with an upgrade with 2560x1600 display and 4K video by January 2015 when my 2 year Verizon contract expires on my HTC Droid DNA.

Leandros S: The closest competitor is actually the Nikon Df, according to DxOMarks: http://www.dxomark.com/Reviews/Sony-Alpha-7S-sensor-review-New-low-light-champ/Sony-A7S-versus-Nikon-Df-New-low-light-champion

The Df is an overpriced retro camera for older DSLR lovers who hate video mode. 1/4000 sec top shutter speed in a $2,700 DSLR ? Really ?

MikeF4Black: Who is really interested in ISO's higher than 6400? I'm not. The A7s appears to be no more than a hype.

If you hate low mp full frame sensors then get the 36mp A7r. Problem solved.

On Centr captures 360-degree video at 4K resolution post (37 comments in total)
In reply to:

Joe Ogiba: This is not 4K since max is 1080p not 2160p.

@Racenviper
Did you take a stupid pill or what ? This camera shoots 720p or 1080p. Look at the specs before you post. It only shoots 720p60 or 1080p30 max then makes a panorama.

My GH4 shoots 4K UHD 3840x2160 or cinema 4K 4096x2160.

On A travel-sized large-format 4x5 camera? article (218 comments in total)

The ultimate joke, the camera is lightweight but the film is a million times the size of a 256GB SDXC card and would cost a million $ for film and processing into digital images compared to the amount of full frame 36mp images that could fit on one 256GB SDXC card.

On Sony announces pricing and availability for Alpha 7S article (131 comments in total)
In reply to:

Petroglyph: Sony is running with the FE mount cams! They'll release the 16-35 OSS and fast prime soon I bet. Esp. since Canon is releasing theirs (16-35) with identical stats. They're feeling a little competition perhaps?

Why should Canon care to come out with anything new when clueless consumers will still purchased their 1.6x crop DSLRs with the same 18mp sensor five years in a row.

In reply to:

Thorgrem: How does this compare to the much cheaper Panasonic GH4?

If you want to shoot both cinema 4K (4096x2160) and 4K UHD (3840x2160) internally then the GH4 is the only game in town other than the Canon EOS 1D C that cost $10k but is made more for stills with OVF instead of EVF.

Engadget: "Both come with microSD expansion (up to 128GB) "

With 4K video you will need that extra storage.

vlad0: 1/2.3-inch sensor ? Why.. put a 1" sensor in this thing, that way it might actually make sense

A 10x optical zoom with 1" sensor would not fit in a smartphone . The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-QX100 for smartphones only has a 3.6x zoom with 1" sensor and it's huge.

" The optical viewfinder has an MSRP of $595/£400."

How much for the EVF ?
