Wow, not what I expected. I didn't FF to the end and watched the whole thing and wound up picking the Google Pixel as best and the Galaxy S8 as worst. I was not impressed with the S8's color at all....

Like Mark, I rarely used CAF with any camera while shooting video. Interestingly, even with my A6300 & A7Rii, both employing PDAF and more reliable, in many cases, than contrast based AF, I still...

GH5 vs A7Sii

I don't care if it's an alleged 1,000 stops. What I'm saying is that most people, including users here, won't see the difference, or if so, only under unusual circumstances. There's a big difference...

Tom, I'm probably one of the few who would have liked to have had a built-in flash.

I've noticed the same thing with how the camera handles strong backlighting. It seems to have a solid algorithm...

Tom, having shot with both the A7Rii & A6300 and now the GH5, I always felt the DR advantage of the larger sensors was overblown for the way most of us shoot. So in that sense I agree with you. It's...

Some interesting 'sights', but I'd tell him to use 1-area AF. He switched from an A7Sii.

Hey, whatever the motivation, the screen quality looks great and better than my iPhone 6's screen. The virtual absence of bezels doesn't hurt either.

Mark's outdoor shots look very good, and...

Yeah, when I did my A/Bs with the 2 cameras, the color was more of an 'in-your-face' difference than resolution. The Sony looked bad by comparison.

In terms of resolution, these 4K cameras are so...

Playing the downloaded files (the only way to do this properly) on a 75" 4K TV, this is not the case. If you can't see the noise during the Sony playback, then you're missing what's going on. There...

Chris, I downloaded your video to a thumb drive and played it on my 75" Sony UHD TV. To be honest, there's so much noise in the RX10iii, many of the lines are dancing with artifacts and it's...

AFAIC, the power of the zoom is in the ability to get in close, not the ability to zoom while shooting. The idea is to get closer, generally where you can't otherwise. So DSLRs certainly don't...
