The Sony 1 inch sensor battle: RX100m3 vs Canon G7X.


A couple of years ago this would have been impossible: Canon using Sony sensors :)
Well the new Canon G7x “unofficially” uses the same 20 MP sensor from the RX100. And the guys from TheCameraStoreTV compared it against the new Sony RX100M3. Wanna know if Canon managed to beat the cam? Watch the video :)

(SR4) Sony working on 8K (A99 alike) cameras to be released in 2016 at best.

Innovation never stops and 4K is just one step into the future. The camera you see on top is the Arri Alexa 65 which already records 6K. And how is Sony going to answer Arri’s move?
One of our sources told us Sony did show a new 8K camera prototype to the BBC studio. The source present at the event said the camera looked like the current Sony A99 but had a built-in vertical grip. Sony told them they could start to sell that kind of camera as early as 2016.

P.S.: $300 off on the A99 and free vertical grip included too at Amazon, Adorama and BHphoto.

Sinan:Last month Sony A7s was officially launched in my country (Turkey) with a special event. During the event I found some time to make some ISO tests with it and published full size photos (with crops) in my site. This is a general ISO test (ISO between 200 to 20000): http://www.photoagainstphoto.com/comparison.php?cid=484 and this is a ISO 3200 – ISO 409600 comparison which is shot in pitch black: http://www.photoagainstphoto.com/comparison.php?cid=531
