It’s been a good weekend for Sony from a photography standpoint. First they manage to keep the new full-frame A7s E-Mount camera a secret until only two days before it was officially announced, and now the Experia Z2 has dethroned the Nokia 808 PureView in DxOMark Mobile’s rankings. Read more…

DxOMark is certainly not the be-all-end-all of camera sensor testing outfits, but what it has going for it is consistency and a whole lot of experience. So while you might not put much stock in their sensor scores, DxO is a great resource for comparing sensor performance between models.

Until today, the Nikon D800E stood at the top of the DxOMark totem pole with an amazing sensor score of 96. But the champion has been unseated, and not by some Canon or Nikon full-frame camera or one of the impressive new APS-C shooters we’ve seen recently. No, the D800E has been decidedly put out of first place by the RED Epic Dragon video camera. Read more…
