EOS Bodies / Re: Purchase 5DIII now, or wait for 5DIV?
« on: January 24, 2015, 02:32:19 AM »
Normally, as others have said, buy when you need, not make descitions based on rumors. However, CP+ is just around the corner. I would have waited until CP+ had finished before making a descition. If the 5D4 is not mentioned here, I would just go with the 5D3.

They will announce a high MP mirrorless. Didn't one of Canons bosses say we should expect such a thing very soon?

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon Confirms Development of High Megapixel Camera
« on: December 31, 2014, 10:17:04 AM »
It makes no sense to replace the 5D3 with 52 MP body based on the 7D2 sensor. 

The 5D3 is a great wedding/event/portrait camera and sometime sports body.  While I don't shoot professionally, this is me.  I'm not looking for more resolution, especially if it means a step backwards in high ISO performance.  If anything, I'd like the 5D4 to incorporate the 7D2 sensor technology with larger, full-frame pixels for even better low light performance.  AF during video would be a nice plus (even thought video is a more distant interest for me).

The 5D4 should also include a bump in FPS and buffer performance.  I don't see this happening with 52 MP.  All I see with 52 MP is HUGE RAW files, maybe 90-100 MB each.  That's a lot for in-camera crunching and recording to cards.

I'll look at a 20 MP 5D4 with a nice bump in low light performance long before considering a 52 MP body.  I still think the 52 MP body has a different audience than those who currently buy the 5D line.  It actually makes more sense to put the 52 MP in the 6D2.  But, it makes the most sense to spawn a new line of bodies for the high MP sensor.

It was some rumors about Canon wanting to move 6D upmarket, if that is the case, then it does make sense to give the 5D4 52mpx, if the 6D then becomes the "real" 5D4, under the cover of the name 6D2. Hopefully it stays below 36 mpx as well.

EOS Bodies / Re: Built in adapter?
« on: December 23, 2014, 04:42:37 AM »
If/when canon brings out a FF mirrorless, would it be possible to have a built in adapter for EF lenses? Compact cameras have "telescope" lenses that collapse into the camera when turned off, would this technology be possible to implement in a mirrorless camera? Would be great if we could mount an EF lens, and the camera would automatically adjust to the correct flange distance.

I'd not want a EF 600mm lens hanging from some sort of telescoping mechanism, it might last for 1 shot.  I'm sure someone could design something, but I believe that any new lens mount would have to be larger than the EF mount.  If smaller, it would block the image circle. 
 
It does not sound practical on the surface, but it might be a way for Canon to design something that would not work with 3rd party lenses.

Perhaps a mirrorless with this built in is not for you then? Canon offers 3 FF dSLRs, I think they will offer more than one mirrorless when they launch their own system.
Or, mabye the mount could be solid, and the sensor could be moved instead? IBIS moves the sensor around, moving the sensor to increase or shorten the distance to the lens could be an option.

who says they would change the mount distance for a FF mirrorless?
Well, the EOS-M has a shorter distance, and every other manufacturer has (I think, dont quote me on this). And why wouldn´t they change it for a FF mirrorless? Imagine how hard they will shoot themselves in the foot if they dont. People using Sony can use pretty much any lens out there, should Canon users only have EF-lenses at their disposal? I dont think Canon will take that chance. Not a bit. Especially since their competitors are so good at other elements like EVF, image quality and now also Autofocus.

Sorry for my late reply.
An adapter of this kind is reslly just an adjustable mount on the camera side, beinh able to increase distance between lens ansåd sensor. They should be able to seal it properly as well, I mean, they did develop nice technology as DPAF, a seal here should be a walk in the park.  :)
The more I think of it, the more I am convinced that the idea is a good one.

EOS Bodies / Re: High Megapixel Camera to Come in Two Variants? [CR1]
« on: October 10, 2014, 02:56:33 AM »
My bet is that they introduce a dSLR and a mirrorless variant of the same high res camera. Also with a brand new mount for the mirrorless and a lens or two.  ;D

My bet is that in the long run, the EF-S mount will be discontinued. It is wise to start introducing mirrorless in the rebel line, as the customers here probably is less demanding. Let the technology mature a bit before introducing mirrorless to the 70D/7D lineup.

It would have to "mature" an order of magnitude or two before it would be usable in a 7D type camera.

That was my thought also. Bringing the the rebel line into mirrorless makes much sense in that respect.

Hi,
    If going pure EVF mean it'll be mirrorless... 2 possibilities:
    1) Replace by EOS M or design a slim rebel and use EF-M mount.
    2) Remain the similar size as current rebel, so can still use EF mount and also a larger capacity battery.

    I hope at least is 2 as EVF need a lot of power...

    Have a nice day.

My bet is that in the long run, the EF-S mount will be discontinued. It is wise to start introducing mirrorless in the rebel line, as the customers here probably is less demanding. Let the technology mature a bit before introducing mirrorless to the 70D/7D lineup.
I think the new rebels will be either M mount, or an all new mount which later on also will be usable for FF mirrorless, or there about.

It is not a Pro feature  :D :D

But seriously, Canon says they have to use plastic top plate on the 6D because of the wireless signal. Why cant they use the Program Wheel as an antenna?

EOS Bodies / Re: popup-flash - made a "pro feature"?
« on: August 13, 2014, 02:50:06 PM »
I can't say that I hate pop-up flash. I have it and on occasion I use it, but I'm certainly no big fan of it. Putting a pop-up flash on a pro body would make me look for alternatives. It's hard to imagine such a flash, with a GN high enough, and without putting a severe penalty on the numbers of shots the battery would last. The current ways of positioning pop-up flash also leaves a little more to be desired - it's awfully close to the optical axle, and can't be swirled or tilted.

I'd rather save up to an old style hammerhead flash from Metz, than go with a built-in flash on pro bodies.

You hit the nail on the head here! :)
The flash cant be bounced or directed any other way than straight ahead. That is why I started this thread. What would make a popup-flash good enough to earn aplace on a pro body. I got the idea from my wifes little Sony NEX-6. There the flash can be bounced from the celing. Brilliant!!  :D

Direct light coming off the camera is horrendous.
I honestly can't think of a useful way to use a pop-up flash (other than blinding people in dark rooms so that you can run away).

Bounce it off the celing?

One reason "pro" cameras don't have it, is the prism in the pro camera is generally much larger.  Looking through my 5DIII and then my 7D, is like going from a 60 inch HDTV to walmart laptop screen. 

If you look at the bump that is under the pop-up flash you will realize how small the prism is in there, vs a "pro" camera.  Of couse you could put a  large pup-up on a pro camera, but it might look so large and bulbus as to be silly.

All that said, I like the pop-up on my 7D and use it from time to time.

The VF is a good reason for not putting a popup. Perhaps they could put the flash on some other part of the body? On one of the sides for instance?(to the left for the "bulk".

Isn't a point about pop up flash and articulating screens not being on pro cameras because it affects sealing, and sealing is deemed more important than these features for pros?

maybe
I am sure they can overcome this if they want to. Others have!
