does anyone know what "EV-2 support" is?

yes ... central sensor of phase AF-system will work down to light levels of minus 2 EV [@ ISO 100]

has nothing to do with (support for) an electronic viewfinder (EVF).
:D

For me personally, the question is:

Will the rumored (http://www.techtoyreviews.com/canon-5ds-image-leaked-price-tag-3800/) 3800$ (5DS) or the 4300$ (5DsR) be worth the price, Canon will want to have for it?

Or wait for an 5DIV, an goldenegglayingwoolmilksaw??? But how much will this be????

Those prices are way too high. If true, Canon killed the success of this camera right out the door. It can't be more than the D810. If anything it needs to be less, as most people looking for higher MP and higher DR have already moved to Nikon. I doubt many people are going to pay more for something with just more MP. 36MP is already taxing out many lenses and is a huge amount of detail!

I can't even think of a single professional landscape photographer who hasn't moved on to an A7R or D800/810 by now, who shoots with 35mm format gear.

I can.

I have read some of the messages...

The two Canon 5d's are Studio Cameras. The 50mp Sensor is Produced by Sony! Now we all know Canon loves to way over price their cameras, that Cinema Camera comes to mind on that point...I am guessing $3,500 to almost to $5,000.
How's your 3D printer doing?

What disappoints me is the smoke and mirrors from canon.
Just admit defeat, the sensor technology has fallen so far behind Nikon and Sony that they are not even in that race any more.
They jumped up and down about video, so Nikon stuck out 60fps 1080 and sony have 4k video.
Now they are obviously cap in hand to Sony begging a place back at the sensor technology top table.
Fair enough, they are so far behind Nikon on ISO  and clarity that they had no choice, they were never going to get close let alone catch up.
Even the archaic d700 absolutely hammers anything Canon have on ISO and the D3s show the 1DX up as a bad joke on a bad day.
But they have to do this handy capping of cameras thing all the time, buy this one to do that, that one to do this.

Do they really think people will buy 3 or 4 cameras just to have all the features.
This company is obviously staffed by complete idiots, they were out of the Press end of cameras 5 years ago, only die hard fools use Canon gear on Press work.

Now they get a seat at the top table again and what do they do ?
Slice the cake they have been given, 5fps ? oh come on, just make a Flaming camera that works as good as a camera possibly can and stop this dividing and spreading bits around multiple cameras.
Nikon make 1 camera that does it all, Canon you need 3 bodies to get the same technology.
FFS, stop it and sack these idiots in the marketing department.
Stop over pricing as well and you might actually sell some.


Bingo ? Bingo ? A line when yin get a full house from Nikon .

Dear Mark99,

You may not be aware of it, so I bring to your attention the fact that on the Internet you may find anything you need.  In your case, you will want to avail yourself of the very low-cost Trolling lessons, which can be found in both audio and video formats, smartphone apps, as well old-school text format.  Your above writing sample strongly indicates you should start with a remedial course in Trolling.

Orangutan
You shouldn't mock the handy capped!

EOS Bodies / Re: More About the EOS 5DS & EOS 5DS R
« on: January 30, 2015, 02:10:16 PM »



But once again...utter silence about read noise and dynamic range. This is, clearly, a Low ISO part from Canon. If they had resolved their low ISO read noise issues...one would think they would be proclaiming it to the heavens. Why the silence? :\


Probably because Canon hasn't officially announced anything yet :) Other than a small percentage of forum dwellers, if Canon bragged about reduced read noise, who would even understand what they're talking about?

That said, I too find it a bit peculiar that everyone is so seduced by the megapixel count of this machine that the whole DR issue has flown under the radar thus far. I didn't think we'd ever see that day on Canon Rumors ;D

Hell, both dilbert and psolberg responded in the other thread, and the discussion still hasn't devolved into a DR pissing match :o
Because the camera(s) are yet to be released? Because nobody has seen any images from the camera(s)?

The "R" model is for Pirates.

I did laugh out loud.

EOS Bodies / Re: Bingo! New Canon 5Ds has 50.6 MP new rumored specs
« on: January 30, 2015, 08:46:14 AM »
So a 30MP 1.3x mode and a 20MP 1.6x mode.

Comes packed with "extra reach" for birders :-P

This is also the first time a Canon DSLR has had an intervalometer.
7D2?

I was gonna say...

Was never interested in the 7D2 so I've not looked at its spec list.

Then perhaps you should avoid making blanket statements like that out of ignorance…

hahaha! You're precious. A whole new thread to talk about new specs and all you can do is pick on me and what I say! Someone is obsessed :) Do you love me yet?
dilbert, Canon Rumors' very own Black Knight.

Ok...  not quite sold...  if it has nice low light capabilities, at least marginally better than the 5DIII, then i'm sold! :P
Seems unlikely, given the ISO 6400 rating...

So.....  no multilayer RGB imager, no global shutter, less high
ISO performance, no GPS, no Wifi, no flash radio controller
built in......   

Not exactly what I had hoped for.
Congratulations on getting the first whinge in! :D

EOS Bodies / Re: New 1DX firmware info by Fred Miranda site member
« on: January 28, 2015, 05:39:12 PM »
Note: Once the EOS 5D Mark III camera is updated to Version 1.3.3, it cannot be restored to a previous firmware version (Version 1.0.7 through 1.2.3).

IIRC they said the same thing about 1.2.3 but there's no issue with reverting back if you have the older firmware.
Correct. 

And the Magic Lantern user who initially had trouble 'downgrading‘ his new 5D3 (that arrived with 1.3.3) to 1.2.3 managed to do so, using EOS Utility.

Alright you mugs, remember you read it here first!

http://www.fredmiranda.com/forum/topic/1344561

Hmm, they didn't mention firmware 1.3.3 for the 5D3 is available from the same place. ;)
(Actually, a forum member there beat me and posted about the 5D3 in a post to the thread)

http://www.cla.canon.com/cla/en/consumer/products/cameras/eos_cameras/eos_5d_mark_iii#driversAndSoftwareTab

For the 5D3:

Changes Firmware Version 1.3.3 incorporates the following improvement and fix. 1. Improves the AF controllability when shooting in Live View mode with a wide-angle lens (fixed focal length or zoom). 2. Corrects some incorrect indications on the "English" and "Russian" menu screens. Firmware Version 1.3.3 is for cameras with Firmware Version 1.2.3 or earlier. If your camera's firmware is already Version 1.3.3, it is not necessary to update the firmware. When updating the firmware of your camera, please first review the instructions thoroughly before downloading. Note: Once the EOS 5D Mark III camera is updated to Version 1.3.3, it cannot be restored to a previous firmware version (Version 1.0.7 through 1.2.3).

Is there some reason that this new high MP camera couldn't be the next of the 1D's?  Or is there some details I'm not aware of?
An earlier post by Canon Rumors suggested that the high MP body would not be a 1D series body.

Guess what Nancy, I already did lol. Tonight was going to be the first time I would've given her a try but just as luck would have it, it ended up being a cloudy rainy night here at Chandler, AZ.  Anyway I figured it was more work researching this fangled equation (I'll leave it for the brainiacs) rather than just pony up the 300 for this jewel.
Congratulations on your new lens!
