EOS Bodies / Re: A Big Megapixel Discussion

This should be a real specialist camera, not for everyone. Not going to happen but I’d love to see Canon go for the jugular design this camera around the 2 ¼ sq form and be modular.

….. and the tumbleweed rolls silently on

Finger on the pulse as ever M.ST

Seriously though did anyone really expect a big announcement given that this rumour was only for the Netherlands

Yes, "must" (you forgot the italics). I may only be one, but (a) whether or not I buy the 100D (or any other APS-C camera) depends largely on whether or not Canon comes up with a small EF-S prime to match; and (b) the 60D/7D replacement is now so long overdue and horrendously under-spec'ed compared to the Nikon, Panasonic and Olympus offerings that neither they (the 60D and the 7D) nor the 6D is a viable option for me (singular, one).


So on the 31th they must announce a small 30~34mm EF-S prime (for the 100D) and the 60D upgrade (70D) or a 7D upgrade (7D2) or what happens?

sorry forgot the bold, italics and underline that time  ::)

can't see the 70D being very exciting but when the 7D2 finally appears I think it may just be something very special, not on the 31st though

24 MP/10fps/2x SD/SDHC/SDXC

That just doesn't sound quite right to me but if it is then it must surely signal the end of CF cards in all future EOS DSLRs?

LOL.

At least there was one image in the brochure which I found inspiring...

Which one are you missing?

probably only the 2x converter I'd bet  :P

If anyone is interested, here's what Scott Kelby says about CC

Of course, it's to some extent a biased opinion but anyway...


Interesting article but I found the comments on it even more so particularly this quote….

[Bryan O'Neil Hughes (Senior Product Manager for Photoshop)] "Lightroom is for photographers. And the Lightroom team is very aware of the reaction by photographers to Photoshop CC. We don't have plans to make Lightroom a subscription-only option but we do envision added functionality for the CC version of Lightroom."

Well that won’t upset anyone! Seems like the in-mates really have taken over the asylum.

…….. and the 6D, spoilt for choice!

I really don’t think the 70D will have the new sensor the 7D2 is the logical first show. I’d assume the big MP camera would be the second. Watch out for a new mode dial though…… yummy

Fantastic lens but the cost is a lot. USA £7800, UK£ 12000. Over a third more expensive. Ouch!

See it from the bright side, you can do a weekend trip to New York, live in a swanky hotel and eat nice and on the Saturday pick a lens up from an actual shop stocking it while still saving money overall.

That price differnetial isn't the fault of Canon....they base price to the dealers is pretty much the same. It's juat a bit of blatent profiteering from the UK vendors who are selling at full RRP and think they will sell every copy they can get their grubby hands on.
At the current price differential, get a standby flight to the US and go and get one Stateside. It'll cost you time and energy, but will yeild a serious price saving.

and good luck with customs on the way back  ;D

sorry off topic but as an aside is it correct that unlike bodies lens warrenties are world wide? I seem to remember reading that somewhere but It may have been on the back of a bottle of red  ::)
