EOS Bodies / Re: Bingo! New Canon 5Ds has 50.6 MP new rumored specs
« on: January 30, 2015, 11:14:24 AM »
Sounds like Canon is moving towards specialty DSLR's rather than a one size fits all.
These two should please the landscape and studio photographer while the mk iv might
Be geared towards action/wildlife, leaving my lowly 6D as just an entry level camera :-)

Only wish the mk iv comes out close on the heals of the 5Ds.

I think the main reason for specialized cameras is to increase sales. If you can not sell to more people then sell more cameras to fewer people.

Will it take EF-S lenses in crop mode?

EOS Bodies / Re: A Sony & Canon Sensor Partnership Mentioned Again [CR1]
« on: January 28, 2015, 12:00:07 PM »
Canon has a history of releasing a product just before a new appropriate sensor is out. Look at the M. It screams for a dual pixel sensor. But they pushed it out the door before the DP was ready. Very likely the same thing happened with the 7D2. Canon wanted to recoup the development of the 7D2 instead of waiting to long. If this rumor is true then 7D3 will come in a year.

EOS Bodies / Re: High Megapixel Camera Coming in 2015 [CR3]

I'm guessing here, but I think when he claims that focus has no bearing on image quality he is referring to the parameters that are not under user control. User can not remove noise or add DR to a sensor, but a user can change the focus. Just a guess.

The user CAN remove noise (lower ISO, ETTR, processing, stacking) and add DR (lower ISO, ETTR, stacking, HDR).

I guess all of that applies when the user is taking a picture of a galloping unicorn on a rainbow. Pitty that most of the real world situation are not as easily corrected.

Focus has no bearing on the image quality -

Here's a low ISO shot with a highly-rated 70-200/2.8 lens on a camera with close to 14 stops of DR.  By your criteria, it has excellent IQ.



Your criteria are just plain asinine.

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon EOS Rebel 750D Spec List [CR1]
« on: January 21, 2015, 05:49:06 PM »
The big differentiator between 7DII and this new camera will be (beside the AF) the FPS and the size of the buffer. The current Rebel's buffer is speced at 3 raw frames, the reality it is just 2 raw frames. The 7DII buffer is 31 raw. A big difference.

Not quite. I have the T4i and I get 6 RAW shots in my buffer before the fps speed is affected. Still nowhere near the 7DII, but is not 2 RAW frames. Let's be fair.

Sorry, I meant RAW+JPEG, the spec is 3, but mine T4i only does 2 before pausing (does not matter if it is a class 10 or U 1 card). If yours does more let me know.

EOS Bodies - For Video / Re: Canon EOS-1D C Coming Down in Price Again?
« on: January 21, 2015, 08:04:10 AM »
You raise a good point, my friend. Indeed, I agree most ppl cannot "see" the difference, but there are some customers who will comment that the motion looks "off" and can't describe it. ;) It mostly happens when there are elements of water (fountain, water splash) where the droplets look too sharp. I'm not saying it's a bad thing since different situations call for different looks, I'm just saying that shooting video at high shutter speeds for the sake of photo is kinda doing things backwards. If it works for you, I can respect that. :)

In cases of to sharp objects the solution would be for the PP software to blur them, that is easer then to go the other way.

T6i and T6j  ;D

I don't see them dropping this below $8k. They'll probably set it there and think that it'll be good competition for the FS7. I absolutely LOVE the 1Dc, but the only way I would ever consider buying is if the price dropped in half, but that's almost guaranteed not to happen since the 1Dx is still sitting at $6,800.00.

Canon made a really big goof with their pricing systems, and now they're paying for it.

Canon is not paying for it, it's the customers that are buying it are paying for it  :)

Lenses / Re: New Rebel & EF 11-24 f/4L USM Coming Shortly
« on: January 16, 2015, 01:13:45 PM »

I'll definitely take a good look at the new lens, it would be unbeatable for small bathrooms, walk-in closets and similar small spaces that I often have to photograph.

For taking pictures of small rooms would a APS-C camera and the Rokinon 8mm not be a cheaper solution?
Unless you have to print large the small rooms.

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Sony closing down?
« on: January 16, 2015, 12:16:02 AM »

It's not hard for me to envision a future with no local retail, except Big Box stores (Costco, Sam's Club) and Online Super Stores (like Amazon). A place without B&H and Adorama, because the camera companies sell direct to consumers online.

Sam's Club was closed down in Canada in 2009

EOS Bodies / Re: NEW CAMERA - EOS 80D?
« on: January 12, 2015, 03:24:31 PM »
As I pointed out before, this is going to be a slightly modified version of the 70D with compatibility for the CS100 built in, since the current 70D doesn't have that function.

No, it is a new Rebel.

Go to the Camera Size website: http://camerasize.com/compare/#533,469 and look at the backs of the 70D and T5 (or T5i).
The camera in the video looks almost identical to 70D and not like a Rebel.

sorry guys im from canon germany and have to tell you that is just a prototype with NFC.
it´s basically a mockup not a real camera.

or pick up a 70D, feel how your thumb, from base to tip, fits the body of the camera, look at these pictures and notice there's around 1cm of camera missing from the grip side, the buttons don't sit right and the ergonomics don't make sense when someone tries to tell you you're looking at a picture of a new XXD series camera...

Again, I've seen no reason to believe anyone claiming it's "almost identical to the 70D" has actually handled a 70D nor a 60D. This is simply not a XXD calibre camera...

The 70D is 6mm wider than the 5Ti, not 1cm. You wouldn't be able to tell the difference on a picture set at an angle. Remodeling the outer case does not mean that it is going to be the same size, particularly when you consider that two years on we would expect to see a certain level of miniaturization of internal components happening.

And it is plainly clear that the button setup is identical to the 70D, with one button and a switch apparently removed (they could be relocated somewhere else on the body, or just removed because they were not considered that important). Plus, it has the top LCD which the TXi series don't have. It looks more like a 70D than a T5i.

This camera is going to have the sensor and autofocus abilities of the 70D, but will include a single Digic 6 processor. It will sit slightly under the 7D2 in capabilities, and a lot under in terms of build quality - so it will be a consumer version of the 7D2. At that point the 70D will essentially be obsolete since it will be the same camera with a slightly more advanced processor. The outside of the camera has undergone some minor changes, but it is basically the same controls as the 70D.

And it will be called 71D  ;)

It would make sense for Canon to have a Rebel with the same control layout as the xxD and xD line. It would be easier for people who start with the Rebel to move up without relearning the controls.
