But according to DXOmark the amount of DR decreases normally from base ISO with a little bump at ~ISO800. Sony A7 III dynamic range comparison, test published by Photons to Photos. Applying a curve makes sense if you develop a jpg from the raw data. Some german photo magasines went into this, explaining why DSLR cameras is less precise at bright aperture values, compared to on-sensor focus solutions. "This means that if your midtone exposure demands ISO 400 but you're worried about clipping highlights, you're better off keeping your exposure settings the same but dialing the camera back to ISO 100 and then selectively brightening the Raw later. The differences at lower ISOs and at ISO 640, on the other hand, you might notice in more extreme pushes. John, you are reading it as he is claiming they use the same light bulbs to light each seen, but in the context (you can use our scene to accurately compare ISO between manufacturers) it's easily (and perhaps more accurate) to read it as the amount of total light provided to the sensor which is affected by the shutter speed (as per your definition). (I transferring them in a jiffy using a USB-C cable that I assume works at Thunderbolt 3 speeds assuming the GH5 has the chips built in, else it may have been working at USB 3.1 speeds, still pretty zippy.) It enables the camera to capture a huge amount of detail and, thanks to Sony’s fantastic sensor-building knowhow and the BSI design, noise is … DSLR lenses like the 16-40L pose no significant problem, since they sit so far away from the sensor....". For example, say you can set a shutter speed and aperture to expose ISO 320 properly. oh and there is canon and other brands,. I was Canon guy and wanted Canon mirroless but at that time it was heavily subpar with competion and unfortunately it is still. Sony full-frame mirrorless cameras are the leaders now for price/performance. In video, in the Sony A7s for example, they took 100 ISO and pushed it with a gamma curve, up to 3200 brightness level keeping the highlights intact, and called it S-LOG2. The overal noise level is about the same, but the a7iii noise looks less "clumpy" and more pleasant (if "pleasant" is a term that can be applied to noise!). "thats why you buy Nikon D850 when it really matters". This new artifact is sharply vertical "stripes" that are evidently caused by IC internal reflections from a very bright object within the frame. What's the best camera for travel? Which for most users is fine – a great out of the box result! Colour is perceived differently by each individual, so colour preferences from cameras will vary, e.g. and af performance, you made the right choice. Better ergonomics and handling. I believe it is a sensor issue. I'll take OSPDAF over ISO 64 any day of the week. I would now say that you were lying about equavalent lenses having 3 pound difference. I never said anything bad about the Sony, just pointed out why it wasn't a good fit for me. I didn't notice the differences between raw and jpg comparison before. no build in timelapse, no focusstacking, small child like buttons for those with small hands and it doesnt have a native lens offering above 400mm and then there is battery life. It would be nice to see some tests conducted by a trusted reliable third party to confirm this...a reliable comparative review of adapters. Im not interested. I disagree about your 2nd para. What's the best camera for shooting landscapes? You know, most higher end cameras today are capable of more than most photographers really need. @Pentaust"I will get into mirrorless system once someone will have made a mirrorless camera with good quality and good handling.". A few FF fanboys refuse to accept reality....but they are laughable. Both DPR and Jim Kasson found the PDAF focus accuracy far inferior to the A7rIII. soil, moss, damp sand, a wet table, wet grass). If your 'clients' are "ecstatic" with the results shown on a mini screen on the back of your camera, well... they are probably just 'casual' private clients without high expectations, not industry clients. First seen in the A6300 and A7R II. US manufacturer Really Right Stuff just released a new lightweight travel tripod, aimed at active and weight-conscious photographers that don't want to compromise on quality. As someone who has owned both an A7 and a D600, two cameras that measure rather similarly, I can say for experience that they are NOT similar in IQ. Brand loyalists that would follow their brand even if the equipment doesn't work. Its already good weather sealed. better noise, better resolution, better colour and no AA-filter needed (or no problems when a cam makers decided to dropsuch a filter). Probably that ISO setting 640 has more dynamic range, and that noise level will be about the same, thanks to the dual gain implementation. And from all that, you expect nikon to do a great mirrorless camera? This seems to be the consensus if you read the forums. I retired and moved last year and am now a glorified dog walker that spends a lot of time in the bush and I don't want heavy gear no matter the perceived benefits. There really are just two form factors for cameras: boxy/rangefinder and DSLR. ;-). Nothing wrong with movie footage from a FF, a friend of mine shot a whole tv documentation with a 5D, absolutely fine. Isn't freedom of thought a wonderful liberty? I wouldn't call that new artifact "banding" because "banding" is a well know and notorious defect of all CMOS. I've been using Canon DSLRs for 7 years now, and shot several hundred thousand images. Apart form using a different S/N ratio criteria, they calculate DR at more iso values and furthermore don't _smooth_ the data. If I wanted FF I'd have it. If there was no sacrifice to get the high DR, sure, great. That's great to see! So much so one maybe could opt to work directly with ISO 640 if there is any chance of pictures thrown away for motion blur. All content, design, and layout are Copyright © 1998 - 2021 Digital Photography Review All Rights Reserved. Here we tested usable dynamic range of the given cameras.With 14.1 stops the usable dynamic range of the A7S comes surprisingly close to the Arri Amira with its legendary Alexa sensor (see our full review here).This is an extremely good dynamic range rating and is … You do clip highlights if you raise the exposure in post processing. In fact they were ecstatic. If Sony were to quit screwing around with weird compression and work on their ugly colors, then they too can make the most of their own sensors. I also predict that it will take 3-4 years before Canon's FF mirrorless can pull level with Sony on sensor performance. Its what important you pick up for yourself. To me upgrade A7 from A7III is a very massive upgrade with a bigger advantage. Significant gains in mid/high ISO image quality are the results. You say "I brought up the money, because some photo snobs seem to think the only good camera is theirs of FF or one with a mirror"Well it was you starting this kind of discussion saying that the only good camera for yourself is your 4/3, because it is so light and small. Are you earning your living from photography? I did not say Canon it's not in the game but in the mirrorless it lacks in a lot of tick box for the same price against competition.Simple fact. For you, if you use a 500mm everyday, sony isn't an option unless you use adapters. There is obviously a comprehension problem going on here, as clearly reflected in your diatribes. https://www.dxomark.com/Cameras/Compare/Side-by-side/Nikon-D7500-versus-Sony-A7-II-versus-Sony-A7___1161_996_916. but here is the problem. feels like when its not moving buy sony, when it is moving buy nikon.

I considered a a7Riii as I'd like a mirrorless body to use with my Canon glass, but a camera that leaks is completely useless to me, as I shoot mainly in tropical conditions where high humidity and sudden rainfall are the norm. Colours can be corrected, or to be more accurate "adjusted to personal taste" quite easily, either in the camera before shooting, or during post processing. It just jumps toy mind all the time when I raise ISO during shooting and see highlights go. I never heard one client complaining about bad colours. i shoot and own canon and nikon, maybe sony. AF is very good and overall package is perfect when travelling. Also, you don't need to stop down the FF cam to "match the DOF", you only need to go a bit closer to the subject. Find out which ones deliver the best sound. this camera's sensor lured so many people to be part of the hype,waiting for the review about handling and control, or i just need to check this part at a7r iii review. Mike which two equivalent lenses you are taking about that give you same dof control on both format? I know of weddingphotographers and others that use it. That would be a quick recap of the reasons why 35mm FF is so popular. Overheating, poor weathersealing to mention some other things are typical for Sony too. Last one from me; I have several Sony cameras, so I am not trolling, but you need to get to 12800 to enjoy any benefit from the sensor, if I am to trust my eyes: https://www.dpreview.com/reviews/image-comparison/fullscreen?attr18=lowlight&attr13_0=sony_a7iii&attr13_1=sony_a7r&attr13_2=sony_a7riii&attr13_3=pentax_k1&attr15_0=jpeg&attr15_1=jpeg&attr15_2=jpeg&attr15_3=jpeg&attr16_0=12800&attr16_1=12800&attr16_2=12800&attr16_3=12800&attr126_0=1&attr126_1=1&attr126_2=1&attr126_3=1&normalization=compare&widget=594&x=0.8942605109405428&y=0.9921347177914293.

I think many would be surprised to find out what dynamic range is used for most pictures. Rob40: You are for sure desperately trying to tell us that you think (your) Nikon cameras are ok! They don't have inferior ergonomics, they're just smaller. Yet, you claim to know what professionals are and use. With great image quality, impressive speed and powerful features, it's a compelling option that doesn't require a monthly subscription. I wonder if these "stripes" are a terrible oversight (bug) by the chip designers? I have a Canon 16-40 f4/L. I would expect doubling the high ISO score would represent a 1 stop improvement. Also for portraits?A 'pro' that thinks about switching to FF and only THEN realising that the lenses are the thing that are adding a lot of weight? If a pro photographer has had canon cameras for 40years, he's not gonna change just because sony or fuji have a better camera. I switched from Canon after 40 years, yes 40, to Sony in January 2017 and have never looked back. No plans to buy Sony lenses. RubberDials - It's not used as a brickbat.
