It's funny seeing DSLR fanboys talking shi* about mirrorless cameras. They think the huge flipping mirror DSLR is the future. Wrong, the DSLR is the buggy whip of cameras. I bet the top people at DPR know that but they depend on the aging DSLR sheep for view count. The A7r II, A7s II , NX1 etc are the future.

BigOne: TWO KILOS is LIGHTWEIGHT and PORTABLE!? By that standard Caterpillar 797 is agile and nimble!

Get a clue, this is not a mickey mouse camera like the one you have. This is a 4K 120 fps cinema camera. DPR fanboys don't have a clue about video hardware.

The new A7r II shoots better internal 4K UHD video in APS-C mode.

Francis Carver: Personally, I am waiting for the 3-inch screen smartphone with the promised 8K video playback capability and the 21-day battery life. The rest is for losers.

luigibozi: I think all the reviewers will tell us how 12Mp iPhone 6s images/video will be far ahead 23Mp Sony's 4K. Let me tell you I won't believe those.

Sony makes the sensors in most smartphones and the A7 full frame cameras come in 12, 24 and 42 mp (A7s II, A7 II & A7r II ) to give you a choice of high resolution or high iso . I think Apple putting 12mp and 4K UHD video in it's new 6s smartphones is a good idea. Now if you want 4K video in a camera under $7K you will only get it from Sony, Samsung or Panasonic since Canon does not even have 4K UHD in it's $5,500 C100 Mark II Cinema camera.

You would think Sony would also put the A7s II sensor and IBIS in a full frame camcorder body like the VG900 that has a much larger body, battery and zoom rocker for full frame power zoom lenses like the 28-135mm F4 PZ that is really too big on the A7 bodies.

So now all of the top smartphones from Apple, Samsung, LG etc have 4K video and no DSLRs under $7,000 have 4K video.

It looks like mirrorless is the future since Sony, Samsung and Panasonic cameras also have 4K like the mirrorless smartphones and it looks like the flipping mirror days are numbered.

nerd2: Here's some facts.

-Iphone 6s still lacks OIS
-Iphone 6s/6s+ has EXACTLY SAME sensor size and optics (which means the same f2.2 aperture)
-Now they crammed 1.5x more pixel into same sized sensor, so now pixel pitch is 1.22um down from 1.5um of IP6

Let's compare this to Samsung GS6.

-f2.2 optics is 34% slower than f1.9 optics of GS6.
-Each pixel is 18% larger (in area) than 1.12um pixels of GS6.
-So GS6's each pixel takes 13% more light than IP6s.
-And GS6 has 33% more pixel count than IP6s.

This simple calculation says that for low light photography, GS6 has theoretical 50% advantage over IP6s. Oh GS6 has OIS too....

Welcome to the DPR pissin* contest.

"It is not until you place the screen side by side with a Full HD display that the difference becomes visible. Watching 4K movies on the Xperia Z5 Premium's display is very impressive and is going to be one of the best you'll get for your money when it hits the market."

rrccad: huh .. isn't the eye capable of resolving down to around 300-400 dpi and that's really it?

isn't this slightly overkill? however if you are casting to your 4k tv it makes somewhat of sense, however, this just looks like a way to suck the living daylights out of your battery life.

120PPI on a phone is only for old people with flip phones.

Miki Nemeth: I used to be a Sony fanboy, I still use Sony cameras, but I've switched to Samsung Galaxy Note 4/Edge just because of S-Pen. I'd expect active/digital/Wacom pen-support from such a beast.

Design flaw in Galaxy Note 5 S Pen slot causes pen detection to break, pen to get stuck.

I use a pen with my Sony Z Ultra.

Do you want noise? Because that's how you get noise.

Use it with the Sony QX1 APS-C smartphone camera .

I bet the full frame A7 FE mount cameras outsell the full frame A mount A99 camera 100-1 or more so how long before Sigma and Tamron get their act together and come out with E/FE mount APS-C/full frame lenses.

Maybe in a few years the M4 will have 4K like the Samsung NX500 .

Poor Canon, they come out with this 1080p30 camera to compete with the Samsung NX500 with 4K 2160p30. I see a fire sale again coming just like the first version.
