  1. basically sony allowed engineers to determine the MP specification, canon let the marketing team decide on it. go it.. no wonder the sony sensor runs circles around canon's. But question, what does it take to make good 4K video using the full frame area? What does sony need to work out the resolution to? 8K oversample down to 4K? It may be beyond what they can do today but I'm thinking sony will beat canon to this. no doubt.
  2. I hate to say it but who cares about canon? no really. who cares. They are just a company that makes tools, not a religion. This aspiring cinematographer you speak of doesn't hold a soul contract on canon, neither does shooting canon mean anything is going to improve for them all else being the same. If canon can't keep up, that is nothing to cry over it. If canon does not want to keep up, that is also nothing to cry over. Let canon be canon. They are no longer the king of imaging, and haven't for some time, and arguably they have never been a force in the high end video market either. These a
  3. ​don't dump the lens system. adapt it and join the party while sony builds the best full frame system designed from the ground up to be versatile in mirrorless bodies without nikon/canon clunky adapters. I doubt sony is going for the niche telephoto market anyway. Seems they are going for the hybrid video/photo shooter and the photographer that just has a standard set of lenses for wedding, landscape, pj, portrait, studio where a 600 f/4 is worthless anyway. However I do think it is only a matter of time before sony ships an ergonomically friendly mirrorless camera that smokes the 5DMK 3/4, 1D
  4. ​while no doubt sony and Zeiss will deliver the basic 50 and 85 fast primes down the road as well as other basics with just as much quality as anybody, the market is open to anybody at this point to figure out they need to make a larger mirorrless camera to balance lenses like a 24-70 and a 70-200. I'm surprised some of the old school companies like canon or nikon haven't figured this out. However both are locked into film and mirror era lens systems constrained by the PD technology that relies on the distances and geometries of traditional DSLRs. This means sony actually has more future proof
  5. So basically this may be the D820 sensor or a modified version as they did for the 36.6 version which means the upcoming high res shooter from nikon will FINALLY join the 4K times if nikon doesn't crippled it on purpose. On the still sides the A7R didn't offer true uncompressed RAW files like the nikon D8XX does. This meant that although it was technically capable of similar quality, many reviewers picked apart sony's imaging pipeline and showed a noticeable advantage to shooting uncompressed raws with the D8XXX models. If sony did not add true uncompressed raw to the A7RII, I suspect the sen
  6. I have no doubt sony will push the limits of the MP race again. After all, sony already ships 1 inch sensors with 20+MPs which would scale up to ridiculous resolutions and they have the fabs and capacity to mass produce it. Ridiculous is what sony does best: blowing the competition to pieces using their sheer tech muscle, in this case, as they did when they pushed the 36MP sensor years ahead of anybody even daring and how their video line went from zero to awesome in no time at all. The question is are they going to chicken out and stop at a mere 59MP, which is quite lame since there is little
  7. I have a 4K panel (not this one) running under an MS surface pro 3 or sometimes a heavy duty desktop PC for when I need more ram (surface pro 3 only has 8GB). I would consider this but is one big issue: Unless it supports the new versions of DP (1.3) or HDMI (2.0) which has support for 60HZ this will be a non starter for me. windows can easily drive these at 60hz, it has done so for a very long time, but like all similar panels that predate the new HDMI and DP rev up specs, they use DP 1.2 MST to merge two panels of half the res in the monitor. This works, yes, but some apps get funky about it
