EOS Bodies / Re: New mirror mechanisms - how is this a good thing?
« on: February 14, 2015, 01:36:27 PM »
Thought I read in one of the early reviews that the new design is a limiting factor for fps in the new 5Ds ?
If so I hope it's not in the 5 div

Since it was first used in the 7D MK II, I'd give that review a pretty low grade.

Indeed. I also remember now that it was the reasoning for crop frame not having higher fps but I believe that's not true as crop is taking full fat MP's and binning to reduce file size?

Regards

I gave up reading for the annoying facebook, twitter, google+ and linkedin redirects down the left side of the page where the text is, insecure much?

Nothing like that on the page I just read, no ads at all

Great review, thanks. Not going to stop me enjoying my 70-300L but...... Hmmmm

EOS Bodies / Re: Interview With Head of EOS 5Ds & EOS 5Ds R Development

(Bearing in mind that his personal assistant told you you are not allowed to ask about dynamic range. Directly asking about dynamic range would bring the interview to an abrupt end.)

Then it would have been a more interesting if somewhat shorter interview.

I'm sure that there are more questions than boring old DR that would fall into that catagory.

How does the 7d2 fit into that?

The mirror mechanism in the 5Ds & 5Ds R is upgraded from the spring mechanism inside the Canon EOS 5D Mark III, this will help in reducing camera vibration while on a tripod.

I actually did laugh out loud at that one, so funny, you couldn't make that kind of stuff up.... Oh wait you can  ;D

Sounds like a good improvement, why do you think its funny?

on a tripod, improvement over what?

I'd love to see a 50 1.4 IS USM as I'd actually buy it but for me the 11-24 alone makes this year of the lens

Wow what a beautiful optic, truly envious of all those who get this.

EOS-M / Re: Official: Canon EOS M3 and It's Not Coming To North America
« on: February 06, 2015, 08:36:38 AM »
Looks like the demand for Canon mirrorless system is not that great in US

Agreed. If and when Canon sees enough demand here, a worthy mirrorless body will be introduced. As long as Canon keeps selling DSLRs, there's not much reason to change course, forum rantings notwithstanding.

So canon are holding off until theres one good enough for the yanks?  It's that kind of self-awareness that makes America friends all over the world.

Not sure that's accurate maybe they just think North America's (isn't yank's racest?  8) ) aren't interested in

hmm... I know this may never happen but imaging this camera with ML duel ISO

Why can't Canon just impliment this on it's top end cams if the patents just can't be got round.

EOS Bodies / Re: Images for EOS Rebel 750D & EOS 760D Appear
« on: February 05, 2015, 08:54:03 AM »
so apart from ergonomics what's the big/main difference between these two?

In a day or two we'll know. Canon knows something after they had done their market research and decided to design and manufacture two Rebel bodies at the same time.

I estimate the 760D body will fetch $900-1000 US and the 750D about $700-800 US. They could keep the T5i at $500. 70D will probably hover at $1200 US.


Well full specs are out

Sorry still not getting what the main differentiator  :(

leaked press realease from canonwatch:

http://www.canonwatch.com/cw5-canon-eos-5ds-eos-5ds-r-ef-11-24mm-f4l-press-release-leaked/

seems like cameras will be getting a canon sensor?

Three things I note

EOS 5DS R also includes:
 •Low-pass cancellation filter


It's called a 5DS R and what is a Low-pass 'cancellation filter' I thought the AA was being taken out not cancelled.
Could it be possible therefore to switch AA off and on?

Up to 5fps - so no faster in crop modes

You stack another filter atop the AA 180 degrees outta phase with the first and cancel out the effect.  It was probably a lot cheaper to do it this way rather than creating TWO fab processes where by half the sensors get made WITH and the other half WITHOUT.  PLUS, the AA filter is also stacked with the IR filter, so to take out the AA  is to take out the IR.  Finally, you still have to have something there to maintain the same focal distance from lens to sensor.

Ah thank you for the explanation!

rotating AA filter anyone............... joking honest  ;D
