Given Canons success with the video side of its DSLRs it's inevitable they are going to want to keep pace, and the current demand for 3D is almost overwhelming. Virtually all new screens are now offering 3D and the price is falling all the time, the issue is content for which there is huge demand.In the 40's and 50's there is a few attachemnt (Exakta has one for sure , I think Leica may have one also) made to be screw on the front of the lens (like a filter) to take stereo pictures by spliting the 35mm frame (film) into two half frames and get the stereo effect. may be you can look into ebay and see if anybody is selling it. the official name at those time is called "stereo attachment. That may be your most inexpensive option.
I remember the 'Nimslo' 3D camera (nearly bought one) as I remember film had to be sent to some country like Switzerland for processing, it's nothing new for stills, but given todays multi media methods it can't be long before there's demand from web users for 3D images. I can see a day when news organisations print an image in 2D and have 3D (switchable) on their web pages. It might someday be the case that anyone wanting to supply commerical images is forced by market pressure to offer a 3D option.
Sometime there will inevitably be a 3D lens for EOS cameras I hope it's not too expensive!
The whole small sensor with interchangeable lens thing makes no sense to meExactly. Canon should make a mirrorless with FF sensor with its own line of smaller lenses (withadapter for EF lens and Leica M Mount). However, I will settle for APS-C sensor with its own line of even smaller lenses, also with adapter for EF, EF-S and Leica M mount. Both MUST have the focusing speed of DSLR. Or Canon can come up with a Leica M9 copy, let the old range finder fan use zone focusing technique and Old leica lenses to get extremely fast manual focusing speed.
first the Q with a sensor barely bigger than a PS camera now Nikon?
with a sensor this small it practicaly negates the major advantage of interchangeable lens (shallow DOF) you might as well put a fixed 24-120 equivalent like the S100 and be done with it
I dont believe in consumer FF body in near future, simply because it would make EF-S line lenses obsolete. FF bodies are better for most purposes, but the human behind the camera is more important than the equipment in front of the human.Just the opposite, If Canon comes up with a sub-$1200 FF boby, People will buy it. As for lenses, a lot of people are using EF (not EF-S) lens even with the APS-C sensors. Or people just buy new lenses with their new FF body. Canon will sell more EF lenses by having "reasonable priced" FF body. It is a Win-Win situation for Canon.
Well, yes, Leica products are nicely built, you can feel the quality. Also you can feel how slow it is.M9 is slow in frame rate and NO auto focusing. Agree. However the delay between shutter button to be pushed and picture actually being taken is faster than most DSLR if it is used the right way. The adpapter you quoted from the Utube is just a proto type, the lens cannot even being mounted on the camera. Sony can make adapter for its DSLR lens to be used on the NEX body. It is all in the family. You did ask fro " use with any brand of lens with aperture control and auto focusing". It does not exist yet.
[When I'm on assignment, people are shocked to find out that I keep a lowly 12.8 mp 5DC as a backup body. They're stunned that a working pro has a body with fewer megapixels than their Rebel or 7D. If this rumored entry-level, "lower mp" camera is real, that's the question Canon's marketing department is going to have to answer.If you keep your lowly12.8 MP 5DC as back up, would you like to have a New 12.8MP FF (with all the new Technology from the 7D snsor) to give you better DR, lower noise, even if it is a low priced body as your back up???
An entry-level, lower megapixel (whatever that means) camera sounds interesting, but how would you market such a machine? With many, if not most, people looking to step up from a point-and-shoot to an SLR, all they care about is megapixels. To them, image quality and megapixel count is one in the same. You have to be somewhat committed to techno geekery to even know or care about stuff like ISO and dynamic range. I can't see how you'd convince people like that to spend substantially more money than a Rebel on this rumored full-frame, "lower mp" body when they don't even know the difference between crop sensors and FF sensors.Most people upgrading from P &S do have some idea about, ISO, MP sensor size etc. Also most of people can tell the picture from a P &S from a APS_C, let alone FF.We should not assume that they are that naive. Also Canon can always educate people in their advertisement and literatures.
Leica is expensive due to its quality and uniqueness. If you put a M9 or any M series camera in you hand and try to handle it, you will feel the quality immediately. The coupled range finder/view finder combination is an optical marvel. The focusing of the lenses (All leica lenses) coupling back to the range finder in the body is not an easy task either. All Leica lenses (at least the older ones) are brass construction with supurb optics. These are what make Leica expensive and unique. Also Leica is built to last. I have a M4 as my work horse until I went digital. It served me 40 years without the need to repair.Canon do not have any Mirror less interchangeble lens camera Now. People in this forum are asking for FF low cost mirrorless system from Canon. That sound like they want Canon to run before Canon can walk. I hope that people can understand that there is only ONE mirrorless FF camera in the world. That is the Leica M9 and it is very expensive for both the body and the lenses. One of the biggest issue (at least for me) is the slow focusing speed of mirrorless camera (about 0.4 second, like any P& S). M9 get fast shooting speed by using manual focusing (no auto focusing). How many EOS DSLR user knows how to use ZONE Focusing?? Canon has been doing Leica copy from the 1930's until 1960's. They definitely have the know how. How ever for them to resurect it. It will not be cheap.I'm afraid that Leica is expensive just because it's a Leica. The M9 has more voodoo magic than modern technology in it (joking . The fact that most people can't afford Leica M9 is making it somewhat special already. IMHO, luxury is all about unique and overpriced products. If only Sigma had made a mirrorless camera using SD1 sensor in it, then it would be a much more desirable product than SD1, even if it was over $3000. I'm not talking about the "living in your pocket" mirrorless concept nonsense, but a nice and comfortable size body which could accept any brand lenses via adapter and (hopefully) retain the AF and aperture control. Is it too much to ask?
I am for a good mirrorless system with auto focusing speed comparable to DSLR. I will even settle for APS-C sensor with good manual focusing lens (or it will comes with Leica M ount or vis adapter).
My aunt and uncle gave me their old Canon Powershot G1 camera but can not find the software to install on my computer (windows vista). I went on line to the Canon site and they do not have anything to download for the windows vista. Anybody know of a good reliable site where I can get the software to download from free?Ask your aunt and uncle if they are still having the original software disk that comes with the G1. You will need it for downloading the later version of the ZoomBrowser. If you cannot find the G1 software from Canon's web site, just try to find it from S60 or any other slightly older point and shoot. If you just want to download the picture from G1 to your computer only, you can download them from the CF card without any Canon software. If you already have another canon camera and already have the ZoomBrowser installed, then it will download the picture from the G1. The ZoomBrowser includes a basic editing function that will be handy if you do not have any editing software.
im a new member to this site but I just purchased a canon 60D. It's a huge upgrade from my canon FS200 camcorder and Nikon n2020 SLR . I got the 60D with a 18-135mm lens I plan on using the camer a for a photography class and to make short films.I have the 17-40mm for over 6 years with 20D and then 40D, before the 17-55mm f2.8 is available. I am very happy with it. It is my MAIN lens. I am not a big fan of long lens. My other lens is 28-135mm USM IS. I also have a 18-55mm IS kit lens if I need to "travel light".However most of the post here like the 17-55mm f2.8 better than the 17-40mm.
I have been researching this camera for months and feel that I have made the right choice
Other lens I have been looking at are 17-40mm , and 24-105mm
That is an excellent attitude.Which places in the US are your favorite to take photos of and why?
My favorite place to take photos is whatever place I happen to be in. One of the joys and challanges of photography is to create meaningful and impactful images wherever you are, be it a majestic national park like Yellowstone or Yosemite, a famous urban environment like New York City or Chicago, a small town in New England, or a cornfield in Indiana (where I happen to be headed next month), or your very own neighborhood. Wherever you go, bring your camera. Stop, look around, spot or create opportunities.
