Either way, the DR is truly impressive. It obviously has some powerful computational ability at its disposal. Despite some obvious imaging limitations, from a DR perspective, it put the A7iii to shame. My wife recently bought the 11 Pro, but I had never tried shooting video with it because of my lack of interest in cellphone video.
However after watching Max’s video, I took it outside to shoot a late day, very high contrast scene every camera I’ve ever owned has stumbled on. I watched the clip back on my OLED via AirPlay, and I too was stunned. Yes, it can still look like cellphone video and does little to change my opinion about using it as a videocamera or wanting to buy one for myself (I have the X and that’s fine), but dang, you’ve got to give kudos when it’s warranted. IMO, in this respect, it’s warranted.
As Max mentioned, it would be very nice if our DSLRs were able to pull off some of these tricks, even as a selectable option.
