Color reproduction ranking

This should ruffle some feathers. 😂

Being too close to the colour standards on a chart is what got Sony into colour problems in the first place. It was a 100% science based approach when actually colour is also an art.

Right, they are the most accurate according to the tests, but almost universally disliked. Hopefully, the a7s III will be ranked lower.

Thats pretty cool. Real life isn't always very appeasing haha.

I am cool with Sony having accurate colors. They should just include a picture profile that has a very pleasing forgiving look.

I think we can safely put aside concerns about AF with a huge range of existing Nikon glass. That makes it a whole notch more exciting.

Sticks like glue. Dual Pixel AF finally gets knocked off top spot?

Frustrating thing is nobody seems to have a Z6!

If that has the same AF engine in video mode then it will make sense to wait.

Thanks Jon, that's very interesting and also quite useful.  I had a quick scan and noticed that the Canons I looked at had similar 'errors' so the test seems reliable, and this means that for colour grading I think this holds some useful information for getting 'those canon colours' or colours from Nikon and others. Everyone knows they change the colours to look flattering or give a nice subjective look but the actual details are never discussed, which means we can't learn from them.

I'll devote further study to this for sure!

Yeah I think the playing field has leveled in the last few years on color. Everyone seems to be copping Canon color, maybe even surpassing them as of late. I think the new Venice color is more Canon'ish than Canon to be honest.

It might sound desperate but I’m praying Nikon doesn’t fuck up with the Z6, crippling it’s continuous autofocus somehow just because it’s the cheaper model. If it’s on par with the Z7, I’ll buy it on release day :)

 

Loving he motion cadence as well!

Can't judge Z with this one.. the atteractiveness of the girl makes a heavy bias.

My fingers are crossed they're just two cameras with two different sensor resolutions, with no surprising crippling of the Z6.

I don't think Nikon has done much of the way in "surprise crippling" have they? Look at the D5 vs D500, kinda is two cameras but with different sensors in it. They didn't really hold back on the D500 did they? 

And that is what I really want to see, a DX mirrorless! Hopefully comes out this summer (or "winter" as you guys call it), as I'd still probably have to wait another 6 months after then for grey market prices to soften.

Nikon are "overdue" to even give some indication what their future "DX" plan is.They will need something pretty special to even match

the video abilities of Fuji's new X-T3.

Honestly think they have mostly given up on it. Sensor costs are going down, they don't have the money to spend on developing the DX lenses and FX. It does not benefit them enough financially, especially in a mirrorless body.

Nikon would be very very foolish to give up on DX, seeing as that is where the vast bulk of their sales are.

 

Nikon have just given the D3400 a huge upgrade ! a better battery and 30 gms lighter so it now gets named D3500.

just in time to discount those D3400s for XMas

Exactly! Even if they feel they don't have anything (sad! But oh well) to put in a new D3x00 they still feel compelled to update it to a "new" model! As those Christmas buyers want to buy the "latest" DSLR! Can't have an "old" camera competing against the latest shiny new Rebel from Canon!

And yes, gives them an excuse to discount their "old" model! So those extreme bargain hunters have something to latch onto as well.

I'll be disappointed though if their next D5x00 doesn't get 4K! Even if just a basic 4K mode like in the D7500
