EOS Bodies / Canon Unveils a new sensor. all white.
« on: April 16, 2014, 11:31:50 PM »
a white rebel. huuuuh.
what´s the next innovation?

a 7d mkII with a "revolutionary" white-painted 2009-sensor???




2
maybe an EOS 7D replacement coming in 2020 with an "all new" version of the 2009 sensor???

i´m personally sick and tired to wait for a new canon image-sensor generation, that isn´t a derivate of the 2009 sensor.

5 years. why not 10 years? the 7d does make "ok"-photos. and in 2009 it was a great camera. like others were in the 70s.

canon doesn´t want my money, as it seems. probably, they don´t get it in future times.

EOS Bodies / 7d mkII - the mediocre sensor story to be continued
« on: March 05, 2014, 07:06:55 PM »
the all new 7d mkII: probably a dslr with another mediocre APS-C sensor with mediocre high-iso capabilities and an even more mediocre dynamic range...

BUT: 4k video

i can´t wait...

it´s about time to get past the 2009-raw-sensor-performance.

Many reviews appear to indicate that the D7100 slightly outperforms the 70D in noise performance, so at least matching the competition's APS-C sensors should be a definite goal. 

"slightly outperforming" ???
look at the measurements of dxo:
http://www.dxomark.com/Cameras/Compare/Side-by-side/Nikon-D7100-versus-Canon-EOS-7D___865_619#tabs-2

dxo-sensor ranking:
Nikon D7100: rank 18
Canon EOS 7D: rank 112

2ev better dynamic range for nikon/sony sensors
about 1/2-3/4 ev better low-light iso

but as long photographers are keep buying underperforming sensor-quality-dslrs, canon won´t offer better, competitive technology.

to be honest: why can´t canon build a APS-C sensor with at least the high-iso quality of a 5D (mk1) of 2005? after almost 9 years?

nikon&sony seem to be able to do that for quite a while:
http://www.dxomark.com/Cameras/Compare/Side-by-side/Nikon-D7100-versus-Canon-EOS-7D-versus-Canon-EOS-5D___865_619_176
and they have a 2ev better dynamic range than the old 5d (mk1) as well.

btw: i don´t expect a rrp of over 1.600$/€ (street price 1.200 within a few month).

i will buy a new 7D if it´s sensor has...


... a minimum of 1/2ev better (raw-) high-iso performance (compared to all that 7d,70d,60d,700d,600d,550d sensors)
... 2+ ev better dynamic range
... 20-24 mpix


in other words: ... the sensor has to have at least the quality of the current nikon/sony dslrs

i won´t buy any new 7D with a raw-image-quality of all the (more ore less) same 7d, 70d, 60d, 700d, 600d, 550d sensor-design, canon is offering since 2009.

but a few weeks ago I DID recommend a friend of mine to buy nikon instead of canon. that´s what i had to do. nikon has been simply far better in sensor-quality over the last years. i hope this will change.

Did your friend want to buy a sensor, or a camera?

Nothing wrong with owning a Sony-based Nikon, though. This year. Trouble is, if he stocks up on Nikon lenses etc, and next years Canon is the best sensor, you're going to wish you'd thought about one or two other factors that come into it.

Let's hope your friend doesn't buy a Nikon and then get a bit excited about video, then come back to you saying "damn this video focusing is crap!"  ::)

she wanted a good camera. for photographie. she wanted to buy it now. therefore i recommended a nikon. canon and nikon cams are both capable systems. but sensor quality is picture quality (some people even buy full-frame because of that). if she will really gets into video in 2 years, i can live with that.

I had been hopeful. but it looks like, that canons 70d sensor isn´t worth to be my next investment.

the new live view autofocus is pretty innovative. I appreciate, that we get back AF microadjustment und an updated AF-system.

but i´m sorry to say. the sensor-quality isn´t (at least) on par with the sony sensor of a nikon D7000. even more lagging behind nikon´s D7100. 2ev less dynamic range and 1/3ev in the high-iso area. thats remarkable, when you consider, that the sony sensor of the D7000 has been released back in 2010.

well, all in all. I won´t buy the 70d.
maybe a 7d mk2 will have a competitive sensor.


And you didn't buy a Nikon because...

well, because I have tons of canon related stuff.

absolutly. that´s why i like dxomark. they are doing a great job.
why should someone better rely on "gold awards"?

but anyway. everybody is free to have his personal believe, what he is considering the "true blue"...

I suppose the only thing MORE worthless than DxOmark's sensor scores, are their lens scores.  Absolutely worthless.

as a scientist, i rather trust standardized measurements with hundreds of cameras than individual opinions based on pixel peeping.

but that´s just me. and science. ;-)

EOS Bodies / Re: the quality of the new sensor will be the key
« on: June 27, 2013, 11:16:20 PM »
at the moment nikon is the clear leader in sensor quality.
I hope this will change.

the quality of the new sensor will be the key!

i´m a long time canon shooter, but couldn´t help myself to recommend a friend, who was looking for a good midrange body to go with nikon. nikon´s sensor quality is so much better at the moment. from 14ev dynamic-range to 3/4 ev more in high iso. autofocus is better anyway...

but let´s hope, that canon is done with "oldtimer"-sensor technology.

at least I am sick and tired of waiting for a competitive sensor.

we´ll see.

Hi,
   Not sure why so many people in the forum said that Nikon sensor is better than Canon... I compare them from the images in imaging resource and found there is no significant visual different... in fact, IMHO, Canon high ISO is slightly better with more details.

  Anyway, previous xxD spec is now xxxD spec and 7D spec is now xxD spec, so if there is a 7DII, it'll be close to the 1D spec... hopefully, the price is not....  ;)

  Have a nice day.


it´s not the question of having an opinion. it´s the (scientific) numbers that count:

here are the numbers:
http://www.dxomark.com/index.php/Cameras/Compare-Camera-Sensors/Compare-cameras-side-by-side/%28appareil1%29/865|0/%28brand%29/Nikon/%28appareil2%29/663|0/%28brand2%29/Canon/%28appareil3%29/619|0/%28brand3%29/Canon

but anyway, we will see, if canon will do a better job than nikon.
it´s about time...

EOS Bodies / it´s canon 2009 with a new badge
« on: March 20, 2013, 09:22:59 PM »
well, a last we get a new sensor. or - in fact - a new badge with the great 2009 technology. and a little tweak. great.

we all like retro.

btw: did you know, intel just announced their new pentium II, 800 mhz prozessor???

EOS Bodies / the canon 700d. a true revolution...
« on: March 20, 2013, 08:44:06 PM »
 the revolutionary brother of a 2009 sensor will be released in march 2013.
we can´t wait...

we all love the hardcore retro-stuff.

just buy yourself some Yongnuo YN-622C ettl-triggers

the YN-622Cs are available for about 45$ a piece and convert all your "old" canon ex-II-flashes into "RT"-style light-poppers. and 2nd curtain is no problem (canons rt flahes can´t do that).

canon is not only pretty late in the radio-ttl-manual-remote-flash-business. they are trying to sell us cheap technology with an absurd "premium". well, i don´t buy that anymore.

try some Yongnuo YN-622C or Phottix Odin stuff instead. both systems are very reliable.
