I asked an Canon technican today, if he knew something about new products or announcements (he is an fanatic sports photographer). his answer: Sharp executed NDAs...., ...tough austerity plan...., ...the mangement wants to see more profit... (not like Samsung), ... milk the cow as much as possible....

Summa summarum: Nothing new to expect. And if they do, we will see it just shortly before the publication

26 pages in two days!
Wow!

That shows that there are many of us hunting for a new announcement.
The suffering pressure seems to be really high.

THIS could be an marketing strategy too. Building up the pressure. Then rease an minor updates product. And everybody buys it.

PowerShot Cameras / G7 Picture @ Dpreview.com - High iso quality?

There are some shots @ higher Iso. IMO, the IQ @ 1600 Iso is a little bit weak. Or am I wrong? Do I expect to much from the G7?

I would like to buy an small camera one for my grandson

Well... at least we can keep guessing.....

The other thread that was posted with a clip of extreme low light captures was actually uploaded just a month or so before the domain canonseeimpossible.com was registered.

Conincidence? Could be.... I just think they were planning ahead, because they knew they were up to something great.

So which camera would get a sensor like this? All of them? The Cinema line?

If they are smart, they would use it as a general sensor in all their cameras, that would make it a competitor to Sony and Panasonic.

The time zone is the problem. BUT: You are all right. If this would have been programmes by an capable advertising company, this problem would not appear. (Or at least an foot note would have been added, that New York local time is meant.)

< 10 mins - will the website crash with our optimism?

It was explained several times in the thread, that obviously the timer is not adjusted for different time zones, but just New York

Change your local time: 04:49:00.....

How exiting! Something we can interpret everything into it.
But it seems really to be an national event. And the logo looks like the business division of Canon

Who knows? The long awaited 100-400?
Or an better Canon Service? Maybe an US Canon lens/Cam rental shop?

Or an price increase?
Or?
Or an new color magangement system or scanning device?
Or the first Eos phone? 18 MP Digic 4?

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Why haven't you left canon?
« on: September 27, 2014, 05:51:40 PM »
One of my first cameras, the F-1, was a camera that I used for more than one decade. Until the early 70ies this system was my companion. My first air-to-air shots, birth of my children, and a lot more milestones in my life have been held by photography. I liked Canon, it was worth the price you paid for it, cheaper than Nikon. So, one Canon body and lens followed another.
I earlier times (if someone remembers that we used 35mm film), the body and the lens by itself were important tools. The film the other technical variable.  The variables have benne merged in the last years. Now the www, electronics,... speed up our lifes. Five years of renewal cylcle were normal, today unthinkable.

I like the lCanon enses and the user-philosophy, also the performance.

But our consumer expectations got bigger and bigger too. And Canon is not meeting our high expectations like we want that Canon does. Some other brands are cheaper and more innovative, have better particular solutions.
So, Canon gets another chance to bring out some successors and I will wait onother year for an good mirrorless camera and an successor for the 5DIII. If this successor is "out of range", Sony or another mirrorless camera will get their chance.

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon Says Higher Resolution Sensors Are Coming Soon
« on: September 26, 2014, 10:03:57 AM »
Well, look what I saw this morning

Weasel words like "soon" remind me of the current "year of the lens", only to just hear that new L primes have been moved far into 2015. I do believe Canon will sell a very expensive studio high-mp 1dxs soon, but I don't see them replacing their whole current lineup with 6d and 5d3 anytime "soon" with high-mp updates.

The 6D and the 5DIII are still sold well. The pricedrop phushed both cams again. Maybe there is an near replacement, but i do not think so too. Another reason why Canon will hold such a replacement back, is the 7DII. I think, they will wait until the 7DII hype is over (let us say 1 year), then maybe they announce an successor of the 6D or 5DIII. An near announcement of an very high priced 1DXY will not depress 7DII sales.

Remember he difference between being announced and being release.  In the year of the 1dx, the 1dx was announced in November, and the 5d3 wasn't announced until March - but the 5d3 was released and available within a month of announcement while the 1dx wasn't avaialble fort he general public to buy until summer of that year.  If they follow their own history, yeah, we may very well see the official announcement for the studio soon, that is of course if this thing is gonna be around by the summer of 2015.

Also, I am kind of hopeful that they will split the line - have the 5d series be about event work, low light work, and then have a big mp body in a 5d style shell.  This won't interfere with either because this would hopefully be a totally different beast --- I would be real happy with a 40 MP canon that only has a burst rate of 2 fps.  If i were to ever buy such a camera, maximum burst rate would not be a big concern to me (do you really need 10 fps to shoot a landscape image, or a model in a studio shoot (would your strobes ever have a chance in hell of keeping up with 10 fps?????).  the 1 series big mp would get a larger buffer and thus greater fps, but even there i don't see the point ---splitt he lines I say...I would love to have the extra bump for about 20% of my work - the remaining 80% though will never see print, or if it does, it's a 4x6 or in an album...so all that extra mp just means extra HD space is needed....

Yesssss, this would be a senseful decision, if Canon does so. Agree and hope that it comes true...
I would like to see an "low Fps" camera with an superb IQ and some more MP. And for sports the 7DII, as I do not want to spend 6000€ for an body....

Even if its not a tangible promise I'm more hopeful of the "very near future". The important thing is Canon's admission its customers need more MP.

Since the real competition is a hot selling Nikon 36MP 810 at around 3.200$ I'd be very, very, very surprised if Canon thinks launching a 8.000$  :o monster MP camera will satisfy their customers.

Meanwhile you can get a D610 (we're not even talking D810 or new Nikon 7xx here) with somewhat better raw files than the 5DIII for 1.700$. Canon understands they need to answer asap.

Come on Canon; give us that killer 5DIV!


They will not build an "killer" 5DIV. Canon will improve the 5DIV a little bit. AF system of the 7DII with more double cross sensors. 24MP, a little bit more image quality, a little bit of lesser noise at high Isos....
500€ higher priced .... and ready is the 5DIV.

Everyone (including myself) seems to be searching the internet for reviews on the new 7D2. It looks like an impressive camera, kind of like how the 7D looked impressive back in 2009 when it was first introduced.

Well, I find myself wanting a new 7D2, but... my now 3 year old 7D still works perfectly and still takes amazing photos... What's my point?

My point is, I will probably upgrade to the 7D2 eventually, but not today. I love my 7D and it still does today what it has always done for me, take fantastic photos. It's still lighting fast and I love the image quality, even at high ISO's. No it's not a low light camera and it was never designed to be, but with a little post-processing images even taken at ISO 3200 are very nice, especially when they are of a hummingbird's wings frozen in time...

I am forcing myself to remember that it is the photographer that makes the photo, not his or her equipment. Yes tools give a workman more options BUT any camera in the hands of a skilled workman (or woman) is an amazing thing. You can capture a moment in time and share it with your friends, family and even make a living doing so.

I love my 7D. I don't see me getting rid of it anytime soon.

D

As there has been a lot of discussion in the past two weeks about bashing the marvellous 7DII and everybody who wrote something not positive, was called a troll, I wonder, why no one called the owner of this thread a troll?   ;)

My 7D still works fine too. It will work fine, until the 5DIV will appear on the horizon  ;D
