I can't believe you stole my Instagram shot! You'll pay for that . If you had access to the RAW file that I shot with my Sony A8S prototype (oops, just blew my NDA), you would be able to lift those shadows to see the black cats, crows, and even Neuro's unicorn. I was actually over at Stephen Hawking's place last night showing him how I captured the inside of some black holes with the prototype. He said, "Yeah right," so I showed him the camera sensor and he was convinced. Look for our joint article in the next issue of NatureI found that the Apple iPad works best for taking pictures of black cats in unlit coal mines... see the attached example and notice how black the black is and how there is no noise or banding....
Crap, what do I do about the new Sony??? I need to shoot black cats in unlit coal mines and the Nikon is inferior to the Sony. I guess the Nikon is junk and I need to get the Sony. I'm so confused.
Please advise on which I should choose - the Nikon D810 or Sony A7S.
Big deal. The A9S will let you push shadows to the point of resolving separate quantum realities. If you photograph Schrödinger's cat your RAW converter will let you see him both dead and alive!
