EOS Bodies / Re: Possible Canon EOS 5D Mark IV Spec Talk [CR2]
« on: February 22, 2015, 11:57:56 AM »
This does not seem right. Going with the lower MP sensor is not the trend in any camera development. Even Rebels now have more than 20MP. This would present a severe segmentation of 5D market with some people left without the ovarall well rounded camera body like 5D III and 5D II were.

It is nice to see High ISO and really outsantind FPS, but in 5D model features need to balanced. Lack of SD card slot will likely not be welcomed by some users.

With these specs i will definitley hold on to my 5DIII and posibly consider 5DSR as an extra body.
Canon said earlier that they will move away from a global model that shoots everything and develop cameras with specifications suited to the needs of different photographers. I think the development of the 5DS along with the proposed specs here for the 5DX is a reflection of that thinking and it makes perfect sense. This camera looks identical to the current 1DX except it's rumored to shoot 4K as well. I don't see that as a drawback. The sensor will probably be a refined version of what's in the current 1D X, not bad either. If they offer this camera for $ 3K price, it's an awesome deal. You'll have your high MP 5DS for landscape/studio work and your high FPS / high ISO 5D X for sports/bird/street photography.

First 20.2MP Rebel.  No DPAF  like the 6D.   
And have Nikon Corp cry bloody murder for deliberately confusing the customer

I'll admit I'm definitely not the target audience for that stuff, but that bag looks like something you would get from Walmart for $11.99 plus taxes, then the next day wonder what was I thinking when I paid for this.

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon EOS 7D Mark II Specifications Confirmed
« on: September 11, 2014, 05:06:49 AM »
So the EOS-1D X top plate and body style is gone, but at least we got Canon's premiere AF system, 10 FPS and dual digic 6 at a reasonable price. On balance, it's a good deal if you are in the market for an APS-C body and wasn't convinced by the 70D specs. The not so good news is that you get the same 20.2 MP sensor which isn't a whole lot better than the original 7D 18 MP sensor. This camera will have a tough time competing with the current crop APS-C bodies from Sony/Nikon because of its perceived sensor limitations.

I know if I order one of these, a few weeks later the new high-MP FF body with killer AF and DR will be released for less $ and I'll regret it till the cows come home.

The 7D2ii must be coming now.  The stars are aligning.

Isn't it amazing how they coordinate so well with each other, the 1Dx and D4, 5D III and D800 and now 7DII and D9300, all coming within weeks of each other

As exciting as it is, here's hoping that Canon will announce something nice and within reach for common mortals.
It's about time that Canon broke the $ 20K price barrier for a lens, this 800 tele should be capable of doing so.

That would be a stretch to be able to spot a new 7D Mark II on your Hi-Def TV but maybe if you are there, standing in the middle of a gaggle of pro photographers you could spot such an elusive camera. I think the arrival of the Sony alpha 6000, Fujifilm X-T1 and Panasonic GH4 have given Canon a serious pause. These are all very capable cameras being offered at a very reasonable price. The sluggish AF that used to be the achilles heal of mirrorless cameras is no longer a handicap. Repackaging the sensor from the 70D into a weather-sealed body and adding a few extra AF points and DIGIC 6 processor just won't cut it any more. Canon really needs a major technology breakthrough to re-establish their dominance in the advanced /serious amateur segment.

EOS Bodies / Re: Will Canon Answer the D4s? [CR2]
« on: January 09, 2014, 07:52:52 PM »
Honestly, I believe the only benefit the D4S owners will see is an improved video functionality to bring it on par with the D1X, an improved AF performance, which Canon already addressed with the 1D x firmware version 2.03, and higher FPS, for whatever it's worth, once again to bring it up to speed to the 1D X, all for a price comparable to the 1D X. Basically closing the gap to the 1D X 2 years after Canon released their flagship.

Now I can see the $2099 final price at the check-out, hopefully the mail-in-rebate will work out without a glitch, that would be a real deal for such lens

Finally Canon has listened to its millions of day-to-day users and gave them what they have been asking for. At last, a camera that adequately meets the desperate needs of cat-lovers for a high-resolution RAW file. Bring it on. Now smile kitty kitty.

It's funny how the same retailer, BigValueInc is listing the same camera twice for 2 different prices, once as $2866 and once as $2545, and both listed as brand new, which 5D mark III would you like to order today?

you get what you pay for?  ???
I think they must be getting a special order/deal from Canon, I bought mine about 10 months ago on a special price similar to this, it was $2750 from Adorama and it was fully legit, came with valid warranty, USA model, the whole works. I think Canon needs to sell certain volume/year to keep the assembly line running at a steady rate and they were ahead of schedule so they are dumping a few hundreds at a fire sale.

EOS Bodies / Re: Reminder: Canon EOS 70D Launch Tonight
« on: July 01, 2013, 05:58:27 PM »
Actually, Canon will announce/release a 7D mark II in the not-so-far future. The 70D might be a step-up from the 4-year-old 7D, but the 7D mark II will be another step-up, essentially a baby EOS 1D X with an APS-C sensor, maybe the same one you see here in the 70D, high-end AF, with a reported high FPS, the early word is 10 FPS, better weather-sealing and a price to match

If you look at the list of buyers, some folks purchased 3 or 4 bodies, all within a few minutes. Love the impulsiveness or maybe they are needed to set up a 3D project
