EOS Bodies / Re: High Megapixel EOS on the Way as Mentioned by Canon
« on: July 24, 2014, 02:38:49 AM »

Because, there are survey results 4-5% of customers who bought the kit lens is that it does not use only kit lens.


Would indeed be interesting to see an accurate translation of this. Do 5% never buy another lens? If so that is an amazing stst

I could believe that easily 4-5% never buy another lens.  I know people with DSLRs that bought a kit and are just fine with their kit zoom.  They take pictures only once in a while such as on a trip or at some big event.  It just depends on how much they get into photography.

wouldn't the is does NOT only use the kit lens, imply the opposite though?
I also find this confusing, but read somewhere (trying to find the source) that 80-90% of DSLR owners (that would be Rebels & their Nikon ilk) never remove their kit lens.  Alan's math makes sense in that regard, plus, not every SLR or DSLR owner throws away their body after two years.  People have bought my old bodies, and I bet many of them still own them.

yeah I guess that could be

Nope you were right the first time it does imply the opposite, 95% do buy an additional lens. Doubt that would include second hand but may include third party. Maybe they are all 50 1.8s and 40 stm's  ;D
It's an interesting little snippet, probably nothing more than some simplistic maths division by marketing but if it is a properly researched stat it is very impressive

EOS Bodies / Re: Eos7D mk2, How EXCITED will you be if . . .?
« on: July 16, 2014, 05:26:34 PM »

Annnnnnd, here's a poll on LCD screen preferences I ginned up:

https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/TK65Z2Y

I'd appreciate everyone's thoughts.  It's a classic example of an engineer channeling his inner marketing guy, but please, indulge me.  I am truly curious.

Sorry to take the question outside of CR, but I wanted follow up questions that the CR Forum poll doodad will not allow.

- A


My answers didn't appear in the results, a well that's marketing for you  ::)

I dunno. I've read the subsequent DPAF patents, and there isn't anything remotely revolutionary in there. Mostly just using different sized photodiodes for the AF part, and a means of increasing sensitivity for AF without reducing IQ. If that's all Canon's got for the 7D II, they are going to take a HUGE reputation hit...and they HAVE to know that... (If they don't, then they've totally lost touch with their customer base, and I am seriously hoping that's not the case.)

Are you suggesting that the people here are representative of Canon's customer base?  I see lots of clamoring for better IQ on forums but until the 70D, the 7D remained a strong seller.  I'd bet a 7DII with 41ish AF points and 10 fps, and a 24 MP DPAF sensor similar in IQ to the 70D, would sell quite well.

I think that's going to turn out to be pretty accurate as it's going to get reamed in these forums for that but a 7D as is with those additional specs is actually going to be a superb camera, as a nice to have I would like to see touch screen, not swivelly tilty thing though. Well that's what I'm expecting anyway.

Canon General / Re: Have G.A.S. and can't to get rid of it!!
« on: July 11, 2014, 04:20:43 PM »
There are only four possible outcomes from a severe case of G.A.S. - (1) near happiness once you get enough gear, (2) bankruptcy, (3) divorce, or (4) bankruptcy and divorce ;D

If you can stay on the edge of (1) while coming close to, but avoiding (2) and (3), you're doing well!

You forgot  an outcome
5) Divorce & Happiness

but I guess that's not really helping  :o  ;)

There were at least 7-8 so called hidden cameras during Arg-Hol semifinal game. 'Canon' brand name was written on the cover material. A lot of them were the middle part of the pitch rather than corner areas. Testing a crop body from distance  may be ? No rain before and during the game and all the Nikon body and lenses used were without cover btw.

errrr... it was pissin down  ;D

Photography Technique / Re: Tour de France crops

For me the third one works best (TdF_7612_SquarerCropSmall.jpg )

Looks pretty close to 10x8 ratio which I'd prefer for printing.
It crops out two distractions - the lamp post at the bottom and the wall on the right which I really don't like.

I like that the people watching from the window on the right are still in the picture and that you can see the girls face (unlike the last photo where it is hidden and therefore makes it a less interesting picture)

I apologize in advance for the following. Jrista you seem to be too offensive to posters who don't like Microsoft or Windows 8. I wanted to reply to Ruined writing something against the usability of windows 8 and I am afraid that you will bash me. Why that?
By the way it seems that most of the replies have nothing to do with the announcement.

joemod I don't see anything 'offensive' from jrista he has strong beliefs calls people out and likes a damn good discussion. I have to admit that having worked with and for Microsoft enterprise solutions for many years and prior to that Autodesk (started developing business solutions around 85) I get heartily fed up with the constant same old same old MS bashing that goes on but I grew a thick skin for that may years ago I prefer to just read and move on.

Regards
