EOS Bodies / Re: 600D/T3i Specs [CR2]
« on: February 04, 2011, 11:14:34 AM »
Having just bought a 60D, i'm actually releaved this is just another repackaging of the 7D/60D/550D core. If they had improved the sensor/digic i'd have been a bit miffed.
The flippy screen is becoming a must have for video enabled camera's so you can clearly see it needed in the entry rebel level SLR camera's.

What i'm always using and learning to love on the 60D is the dual dial controls - initially very fiddely but now much quicker than the single front wheel dial of the 400D i had before.
The other thing we expect the 600D not to have is the top LCD screen - another time saver as you get used to it.
So a good mix of core components that leaves (with the features mentioned above) just enough space between models.

Why not, slightly bigger sensor and a touch screen then reusing proven technology from other areas of canon. seems to plug the gap for FF users who want AF/fps speed and an upgrade.
Can't see the 6D name though. apart from looking at the potential for a 600D, 60D, 6D lineup.

The sensor does not seem to ring true, only just above the k5 resolution.
the ISO 128000 max with a jump to 1million in H mode - a 3 stop jump?

It seems you logout of face boot then create a page via something like

http://www.facebook.com/pages/create.php?campaign_id=372931622610&placement=pghm&extra_1=0

choose official page
Brand, product or organisation:
tick to say you the official rep, and create the page.

in this way your mot masquarading as another person and violating their T's & C's.

Weird - my company (and lots of our peers) has a "group"

Category: Business - Companies
Description: A home for staff and ex-staff .. a place to keep in touch and discuss events etc.


I'll ask marketing if we are about to be kicked off, or if group is the way to go for you?

There is a visible link to an admin account, and that's of a real person - maybe you'll need that though.

Anyone got a URL to a Spec sheet - i'm wonderign what ISO these might have.

Where would the new sensor come from? Canon would not make one just for this 1100 camera.

Is this part of a wider product shift strategy?
With the 7D previously being said to be the new 60D.
Is the 1100D the new 600D ?

Are we still thinking Canon will go medium format, maybe the 1Ds Mk III replacement will be MF?
with the 1D Mk IV staying APS-H, that would create a non level playing feild for Nikon.

If this happened then only the 5dMk2 would be using the full image circle of the EF lenses!

I've seen little excitement about the 60D so the 7D needs to step upto the mark of other APS-c camera's

It also still seems like a EOS6D with a APS-H (or anything else between FF & APS-C, maybe APS-J?) sensor would be an interesting exercise to seperate SLR's from top end APS-c compacts and give us a reason to focus on improving our EF L glass collection.

Canon have alreadt proved they can do really great sensors with the 1D Mk IV.

Canon General / Re: Camera Body Breakdown [CR1]

With the Bells and whistles being differentatiors, the market is open for a module based approach where you buy a base level body then add modules in hardware or software as you need them.

Sensors are the main differentatiors and exceed the limits of much of the glass used. So expect better dynamic range, ISO performance, global shutter, etc to keep driving sensor performance.

Its a CR1!
a 600D before a 7dMk2 - only if they reuse the 18M sensor a 4th time. if so maybe they want to add the 60 flip screen and movie mode AF to deal with panasonic.

Or If the 600D has say a 22MP sensor with good iSo then i'd be interested (in the iSo) but the only reason i'd expected this to be before the 7d is that a digic 5 processor was unavailable in the near time frame.

Maybe they want to catch up on the ISO front and go down to 16Mpixels for smaller files too - but they have not done thi before.
Anyway its CR1 speculation.

The rest of the electronics industry is releasing new processors, and ideas like fulltime AF, global shutter, in camera processing/ filtering/ HDR etc are all going to need more processing power to its bound to come - but March only canon knows?
 Also Camera's will in time need Wifi/3g to upload photo's direct to social networking sites and the like.

Looking forward to the awards post :-) I need some thing to cheer me up after canon's slowdown in the APS-c market and the ISO of the pentax k5 or the speed of the sony alpha55. I know the 60D does ISO128000 and that its way better than my 400D and that it may come down to a price where it does not matter so much. But sigh, i wanted to be blown away by my SLR !

Lenses / Re: EF 70-300 f/4-5.6L IS Preorders
« on: November 05, 2010, 05:27:33 AM »
With my (much cheaper) 70-300 f/4-5.6 lens setting the aperture to f4/ then zooming the lens to 300mm, causes the camera to go to f5.6, but zooming back to 70mm does not give f4 again :-(
Maybe this lens addresses this as it seems weird for an L lens to have variable aperture in the first place.

About lenses and sensors.

What I understand from this is that in daily practice shooting at f8, f11, a sensor like the one as in the 5Dm2 starts to out resolve lenses.
So all this improvement is just for better cropping / digital zooming?
