    3 minor points.....

    1. the sensor in Panasonic cameras is actually much SMALLER than a baby duck

    2. the phrase "stable as a 3-legged coffee table" may sound funny, but in fact 3 points determine a plane.....so a three legged coffee table (or stool) is as stable as it gets.

    3. the fade-out at the end of the song could have happened 30 seconds sooner

    But honestly, I was laughing out loud.

    Loved it!

    On a serious note, why the heck can Sony not convert a raw image to a JPEG in-camera like every other camera manufacturer?

    Hi Jonathan - I hear about this complaint all the time. Unfortunately, my only point of reference is Sony. What is the benefit of this feature?

    So the jpeg's I get out of my A7ii aren't converted in camera? Where are they converted then?

    My main gripe is the Sony Play Memories app only transfers jpegs. If you have raws, it will only transfer the 2mb preview image. Olympus, Nikon and other manufacturers allow in-body conversions and I only like shooting raw and not raw+jpeg.

    I'm traveling right now and forgot my SD card reader wifi hub and all my files are raw. I currently can't convert or transfer any of my raws files via the Play Memories app.

    The issue is mainly for raw only shooters. If you're a JPEG or raw+jpeg shooter, you're okay!

    BTW - Sorry to hijack your thread @fractal@fractal! Even a near-perfect camera like the A7III, is still far from perfect!

    ah, now you've ruined it. I was gonna tell my wife it was perfect so I could justify getting one.

    Invisible hampsters! That's why I shoot manual focus lenses, so I don't attract them into my house!

    This guy's other videos are also hilarious. Should watch
    7 Reasons To Buy The Canon 6Dii Instead Of The Sony A7iii

    . Must watch til the very end. ;)

    The vids are funny, but they make a good point, in that camera brands are competing more on intangibles like flippy touch screens. I've been dealing with this. I sold my Fuji X-T2 to buy my a6500. But I'm missing the X-T2 more because of the feel of it in my hand.

    And I don't even use the touch screen on my 6500.

    And I consider a touchscreen to be a flaw. So there's certainly no pleasing everyone.
