EOS Bodies / Re: Expect Higher End Products at CP+ in February
« on: January 06, 2015, 08:03:41 PM »
Face it folks.

Someone at the very top of the Canon food chain decided, literally years ago, to stick with big old bodies and crappy handhelds. So this is what we get as announcements.

Like GM decades ago - they focused upon the wrong products and ignored the nimble little imports being purchased like snacks.

Mirrorless = subcompacts.

Canon is facing a total fail and too full of hubris to admit it.

I sold my 1DX and all my L primes. Not looking back. enjoy your PowerShots and shoulder killing full size units.

any guess or rumors when a new EOS M will be announced?
i really thought we will see a new model. :(

What lead you to believe Canon would produce anything mirrorless? It's pretty clear to me they have dropped it.

Three Powershots are news?

Is this normal board policy to remove entire posts?

Serious question.

This is a very unfortunate story.

My hope is it ultimately works out in your favor and those participating in the theft are found out.


PowerShot / Re: Canon Announces the PowerShot SX520 HS & SX400 HS

Don't worry, they'll come soon enough.  If you can't wait, feel free to switch to Nikon.  You might want to try 6D first for the meantime.  It's not as high-DR/MP as the D810 but it's the best Canon can offer if you're looking for IQ/MP.

I think I said I own a 1DX. Why would I want to downgrade? You may love the 6D, but it's already out of date.

My 1DX is very, very close to being out of date for the simple reason of Canon wishing to sustain their professional channels. This is their prerogative.

They could have a new high MP unit in the channels NOW. They could have an innovative mirrorless body in the channels NOW.

Instead, they announced new PowerShots? A lame cloud storage system? A partnership with MS? A new iteration of DPP?

You may be happy with these new announcements, and that is your right.

I am not.

This is sad.

More PowerShots?

Does anyone else not think Canon is fully asleep at the wheel?

I'm a 1DX owner for goodness sake. Where is high MP? Where is innovative mirrorless? Where is any innovation at all?

Please spare me the "it's coming" hooey. There is very little coming. They are in turmoil internally selling into their installed base and ignoring the competition.
