Sony A7III Launch Delayed

Sony-A7-III-press-release-i-1

According to the latest rumors the announcement of Sony A7III camera is delayed from June to November of 2017.

The exact reason behind the day of the announcement isn’t clear yet. Possibly they are thinking to save the current Sony A9 camera sales. Once the put a A7II successor (A7 series is dedicated for speed) in front of photographers with an an affordable price tag.

It’s a trend now. As we have seen many camera companies announces a trim out version of high-end camera just after 6 to 7 months of its flasghip announcement.

Fact of the matter is Sony want to gain more and more market share before Canon and Nikon enters in the market with an serious FF mirrrorless solution.

So A7III is coming in November with an affordable price tag. We can name it Affordable A9 prior to its announcement.

Sony A9 is one of the best mirrorless camera Sony every minute till date that is also one of the best DSLR available

Sony A9 vs Canon 5D Mark IV.  both camera are made for professional  users , however the design of both the camera is entirely different,  Canon 5D Mark IV is slightly bigger, heavier and bulkier where is Sony A9 is more compact and easy to handle for longer periods of time due to 200 grams of less weight.

Once you install the battery grip in Canon 5D Mark 4 or Sony A9 then the overall size of both the camera becomes twice as big compared to the Sony Alpha A9 mirrorless camera.

No Top LCD in Sony A9: If you are a professional DSLR user from a long time then for sure you are going to miss the top LCD display screen in Sony A9 full frame mirrorless. Whereas as the Canon 5D Mark 4 camera do have top LCD panel display as it can be found in professional DSLR Canon and Nikon.

The images you say never give your idea that how would the DSLR and mirrorless will look in front of each other.

1. Sensor resolution

Let’s talk about this answer about the camera the Canon 5D Mark IV offers you a 13 megapixel full frame sensor that features dual pixel CMOS AF Technolog. DPAF  technology helps you to acquire AF in no time.

Sony A9 will going to give you 24mp resolution where as the Canon 5D Mark IV offers 6 megapixels more that is 30 Mp resolution sensor.  we do know that resolution doesn’t matter at some extent but it is helpful when you have some extra megapixels in your hand.  One of the biggest advantage I have seen by having higher resolution That you get more details in the image when viewed at 100%.

 

2. Auto focusing system

Not only dual pixel CMOS AF sensor the camera also features a dedicated Phase AF module with 61 AF points that enable dual auto focusing system in Canon 5D Mark 4 camera. The Sony A9 on the other side features 693 AF points, hence you get 632 more AF points with Sony A9 camera.

Having more number of photo focusing point is definitely a big advantage when you are shooting a sports event. The more AF point you have and the more screen coverage you get. Hence you never miss a shot.

3. 20.0fps vs 7.0fps

One of the biggest advantage of Sony A9 camera is its continuous shooting a speed of 20 frames per second with auto focusing support. Canon 5D Mark IV continuous shooting speed remains limited to 7 frames per second only

Having 13 frames per second continuous shooting speed is really a great advantage If you shooting a sports event just imagine you are getting 13 frames extra every second the amount of extra shots you are getting is insane. Sony A9 is definitely perfect machine and highly recommended to sports Shooters.

 

4. ISO Range

The Canon 5D Mark IV sensor pixel is bit smaller compared to Sony A9,  theoretically the Canon 5D Mark 4 camera will going to show bit inferior noise management at high ISO range when compared to Sony A9.

204.800 vs 102.400

As you can notice the ISO range of Sony A9 is  204.800 vs 102.400 of 5D Mark IV. Hence you are getting larger pixels with A9 as well as more ISO range, so we assure you that you will get better noise performance at high ISO range.

 

5. sensor image stabilization

The biggest advantage in getting Sony A9 camera is your getting on sensor images stabilization system that will going to work very effectively.  A9 features Industry best 5 Axis shake correction mechanism inside it. Not only that if you insert image stabilization based lenses then the camera will going to synchronized with that lenses and you are getting image stabilization upto 5.5 stops In some specific lenses

Unfortunately the Canon 5D Mark 4 doesn’t have any built-in image stabilization system and for that you have to use Image stabilization based lenses. but keep in mind that Canon image stabilization work only in x and y axis.  where is the Sony camera based image stabilization system works in 5 axis so it is more effective and helpful during low light condition.

Conclusion: is left for you, do write your own conclusion in the comment box.

Sony A9 vs. A7R II High ISO Test

Sony A9 vs Sony A7R II

I am really disappointed to see the High ISO test result of Sony A9 camera when compared to Sony A7 R2. We can’t raise questions on the test process since that test is done by the DPreview team.

From the test it is very clear that despite of having 2 years old Technology and 2x more resolution the Sony 7r II ISO performance is almost same as Sony A9 which raises the question on capability of Sony engineers.  They have taken 2 years of time and the photo pixels (35.30µm2vs 20.33µm2) of Sony A9 is approx price bigger than the Sony A7 R2. But, despite of that the noise performance of the camera remains same and which is insane.

I was expecting at least 2X better performance than Sony A7RII. But when we I seen the test score then I personally find no reason in picking up Sony A9 camera by paying more price ($2698 vs $4498). Yes, the A9 do have speed but that isn’t necessary to 90% Photographers.

Sony A9 vs A7R II camera

Sony A7R II available at Amazon and B&H

Sony A9 and A7R

ISO 51,200 comparison of a7R II vs a9. Not much difference, though the a7R II does slightly edge out the a9. Normalized signal:noise ratio (SNR) measurements place the two neck-to-neck: 1.82 vs. 1.48 for the a7R II and a9 at the dark patches here, respectively. At ISO 25,600, the normalized SNR is exactly the same. Please click on image for proper 1:1 comparison source dpreview

Imaging devices and electronic apparatuses incorporating imaging devices are provided. An imaging device as disclosed
can include a first pixel (2PA, 2PB) and a second pixel (2X). The first and second pixels each have a first electrode (5IA,
51B, 51C), a portion of a photoelectric conversion film (81), and a portion of a second electrode (82), where the photoelectric conversion film is between the first electrode and the second electrode. The first electrode (5IA, 51B) of the first pixel has a first area, while the first electrode (51C) of the second pixel has a second area that is smaller than the first area. The first pixel can include a light shielding film (52A, 52B). Alternatively or in addition, the first pixel can be divided into first and second portions
