  1. Note that the new Sony A1 camera they put the steadyshot inside on the grip (right hand side) and we've not seen the FX3 from that side yet.
  2. I believe you can set the shutter button to start and stop video recording on Sony cameras, perhaps not the early ones but pretty sure it's possible on the latest ones. Wonder if the front dial (which is missing on the A7C) and the joystick being on the top finally means we get a great rear screen. Even more important with no viewfinder.
  3. So @Andrew Reid did it soft or hard boil the eggs that were in the box underneath?
  4. A bit off topic but my 12V power tools beg to differ. I also like that Sony are considering size in the product design and I'm disappointed in how big the grips have been getting on the newer models.
  5. I think the lack of PDAF pretty much killed off most of the market for the A7S II after the A7 III was released. When you also look at how much flack Panasonic cameras get for their autofocus performance, I'd be really shocked if the A7S III doesn't have PDAF. So far though I don't believe there are any rumours one way or another on this factor.
  6. Alpha Rumours are reporting unlimited recording times on the A7S III https://www.sonyalpharumors.com/sony-a7sii-successor-has-new-12mp-sensor/
  7. Over £100 for the new LP-E6NH battery, good job you can use the old ones in it as well though.
  8. I've had a hands on with the S1 and S1R and there is a lot to like about them. The viewfinder is amazing, menus are well laid out, button and dial layout is fairly sensible (though I wish the playback button was on the right hand side of the body). However the ergonomics of a camera is something that's very subjective. Being that I have small hands after being out shooting with the camera for around 30 minutes it became painful to hold as the grip was too large (for me). Also the body cap is really tricky to take off the camera as it's really thin and hard to get a grip on it and that's with m
  9. Not seen any reports on rolling shutter performance yet.
  10. Is 72 Mbps a fairly standard bitrate for HEVC? I see it only uses that for HLG recording.
  11. It's not an L Mount lens, so it's just a 10-25 MFT lens unless I'm mistaken. Not sure how I feel about 1x XQD and 1x SD
  12. They didn't mention if it was 8 or 10 bit, or if there is a 30min record time limit. I would presume it's 10bit and no limit but you never know.
  13. Fair enough, I find them all a bit hard to judge accurately if I'm honest. Things might look different between them all at 100% rather than 400% crops as well. Roll on the final results!
  14. Tried to work out which of the @Cliff Totten images were from which camera/mode and gave up. But I will put them in order of what I think quality wise: Top one looks the best and sharpest on details, some moire Third one not as sharp but has the least moire Second one similar sharpness to the third but more moire Last one appears to have the most blocking, especially on the large dark area, similar sharpness and moire to top and second Looking forward to seeing the actual results to see if it changes my purchasing. I also assume this is just for video quality an
  15. Looks like Nikon have a new scheme to try and push the video side more. https://www.ineveryframe.com/home/ Giving away at least $2000 each month, wonder how long they will keep this running for. Videos have to be shot using Nikon cameras.
