  1. I guess the A6300, A6400 and especially the A6500 didn't sell as well as they hoped and still had a warehouse full full of those sensors. The A6600 is the recycling bin. The price that thing is sold for in Europe, is actually hilariously high.
  2. It feels like Sony just gave up on the APS-C market. It seems even Canon is putting more effort into their Eos M cameras nowadays.
  3. but... but.... but.... We have heard so many stories, that the new Sonys do not overheat directly after them being released and influencer being flown to the presentation, does he really dare to say, that that still might happen?! ? The Panasonic cameras may seem big at the first look, but all of that size serves a purpose
  4. I have had nearly every lens. My favorite two are the 16mm f/1.4 and 35mm f/1.4 But honestly, if it's for photos, you can't go wrong.
  5. while I agree I think it's funny, as the EVF experience with Sony wasn't great until now. Every other manufacturer beat that at that. And the LCD seems to still be sub par as well.
  6. Andrew you must be doing it wrong. Influenza on Youtube tell us, that Sony colors are the best there are ?
  7. It might be a myth that it's due to the camera, but each camera + converter produces a specific color. And some are just easier to work with. Let's not call it color science but camera+converter collaboration. And yes, there are just some camera+converter combinations that gives the user a better starting point, reducing editing time.
  8. If I get this right, it's either a pixel binned full sensor size readout or a 6K readout from sub APS-C area, downsampled to 4K. Both at 30fps maximum. Still 100Mbps max still 8 bit only, even when using an external recorder and still no 4K DCI? I guess that means the A7SIII is still coming this year ?
  9. a 24MP BSI sensor with dual gain and exactly the same characteristics as the Sony sensor?
  10. To be honest, I am happy they didn't. Those are small, light, optically good and still affordable. And stabilization will come with next gen cameras and IBIS. Once IBIS is in most cameras, OIS doesn't make sense with this focal lengths.
  11. Yes, that's probably the best lens to get started on a tight budget. It's cheap, optically good, has a great stabilization system and overall does everything very good.
  12. lens turbo is fine optically (actually the designer of the metabones said so himself), but the old version of the Kipon one wasn't. Never used that one myself, but the pictures you can find aren't really any good. Don't have any speedboosters any more. Dummy adapters for old glass, native af lenses and a few manual once with fuji x mount. over time using adapters becomes a pita. The decision speedbooster vs dummy adapter is a) depending on your budget b) depending on the angle of view you are looking for c) depending on the lenses you are using with it.
  13. SD cards: either get the San Disk Extreme Pro 95MB/s, Sony M (260MB/s, 100MB/s) or buy into the really expansive stuff, like the best UHS-II cards. Usb c cable: do you need one? For Power Delivery most of them work, I wouldn't buy into the really expansive once, unless you use to tether which you don't, since you are into video only Display cover: don't use one, no scratches. Minolta adapter: doesn't matter, it's just a dummy adapter, get the cheapest one you can.
  14. Why poor Sony? All those interesting cameras announced in the last weeks and months, no matter if they are called Sigma FP, Panasonic S1 or Fujifilm GFX100 all use Sony sensors.
  15. To be honest, thinking about it it shows how excellent the GF lenses are. The panasonic not only is a 188MP image, it's a a 188MP RGB image with every pixel having all the information for red, green and blue. That the Fuji is as close as it is, is a statement to it's quality. If the rumors are true and the GFX gets multi shot as well, I can't imagine what the quality will be like. Dpreview probably has to reprint it's target at a higher resolution ?
  16. Hasselblad said, it's the same old sensor in the X1D II 50c as it was in the first version.
  17. You should get a Nikon F --> Canon EF manual adapter. This way you can mount Nikon F mount lenses onto the canon adapter onto the sony adapter onto the Nikon. Probably not the best way to adapt Nikon F glass to a Nikon body but who cares. Adapterception!!!
  18. E for the river. But it's not as much the color, as it is the exposure. I guess it was done in manual exposure with same settings on all cameras thus different brightness? Although it's much more magenta than I normally like, I like G on the dog.
  19. Yeah, 3.76um that's right, had the old 24MP APS-C Pixel in mind, which was 3.91um. I suspected that the IMX455 would make it into either a new Nikon Z (or D850 successor), Pentax K1 or Sony A7RIV camera, but haven't heard any rumors about it. Z Cam E2 F8 is already introduced, that's interesting.
  20. I am not. If pixelsize is the same, bigger sensors have higher pixel amounts. with the 3.91 micron pixels there is the 26MP APS-C sensor, the 100MP 44x33mm medium format sensor and the 150MP bigger medium format sensor. A 60MP full frame sensor seems to be in the pipeline. And if you crop one of those sensors to the size of one other, it has exactly the same pixel count. And yes, crop factor as linear factor is the square root of the area. Anyway, no matter how you calculate it (horrizontal pixel amount, area, pixel size) you end up with a crop factor that is close to 3x. (3x means 9 tim
  21. I think the GFX100 sensor isn't really designed to handle video as it's highest priority (if it was, it probably wouldn't be 100MP), but stills. And still it seems it's a great option for those looking to go beyond full frame and try something special. That the GFX100 does 10bit internal at bitrates of up to 400Mbit puts it up there with some of the best full frame cameras, while reading over 50MP. That's some crazy stuff. 50MP at 30 frames a second, that's 1500MP read and processed every second (adc drop precision to do it and that decreases processing power needed, it's still immense though.
  22. no, at APS-C/S35 size it's still an 26MP (3:2 format) X-T3 sensor. To get a 1:1 4K pixel readout it needs to crop past micro four thirds to something close to 1.1" sensor. That's a crop factor of over 3. Would be great for wide angle shots That's probably what canon would do ?
