"Canonitis" -> To never go the full step you really need to innovate and take over the market.

i love the term "Canonitis".

it´s so perfect on the spot.

look at the 7d mkii
- an 1.800 bucks dslr with a crop sensor of a 70d-quality-stage. not really much better than the old 2009 7d mk1.
- a dynamic range that´s 2ev less than the apsc-dslrs from sony or nikon.
- no wifi. come on canon. it´s 2014. most cheap point&shot cameras have wifi. why shold i buy a sperate 600bucks-device and mount that thing onto my 7d just to get a wifi connection. a wifi chip costs 1$...

"Canonitis" -> we could. but we won´t.

canonseeimpossible.com brings up the same page as the seeimpossible.usa.canon.com link.  The page seems to have just recently gone live.  While I was searching, the host that had been reported as being in British Virgin Islands, switched to a U.S. site.

Any IT folks out there know how to get more insight?

canonseeimpossible.com is registered to a US-advertising-agency, which is promoting canon.

i guess, they want to apologise for the lame 7d mk2 sensor-technology...

for me - personally - that would be a "revolutionary" improvement. well, kind of...

a canon sensor, that can - at least - compete with sony sensors and an apology for the 7d mkII sensor, which is only marginally better than the one in the 7d mkI of 2009?

that would be a "revolution"!

maybe a NEW 7d MK3 with a "revolutionary" updated 70d sensor?

but wait...
that "revolution" already passed ...
(...there is no revolution, they only changed the president...)

maybe we will see the  new revolutionary, almost thought impossible, atheistic, technoholic....

...NEW CANON PHOTO-BAG
IN BLACK & YELLOW ???

well, "AT CANON, WE SEE IMPOSSIBLE"

we can´t wait....

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???

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. ;-)
