EOS Bodies / Re: Petapixel: Canon Full Frame Mirrorless
« on: December 03, 2014, 05:58:20 PM »
What is a Rangefinder Mirrorless Camera?  That sounds pretty Retro, and limited production is not Canons thing, particularly in a falling market.
 
I'd be very happy with a FF mirrorless body that used existing lenses, but I'd just ignore one that needed new lenses.  Using a adaptor with my EF lenses would be out of consideration.
If the rumor is proven true then Canon did a Sony by making a transition to smaller cameras in weight & dimension.

It would be a mistake on Canon's part to allow other companies to make obsolete their products.

I meant full frame mirrorless interchangeable lens camera and/or rangerfinder-like camera.  :P

Marsu42, it is possible for Canon to produce/market in parallel a full frame mirroless lens mount system as a transition period.

I am sure TLR and RF users in the 60s and 70s dissed SLR technology because it was not in the mainstream but look at where they are right now?

But it's true.....

Everyone has left canon..... Yet somehow they are still number one in sales.....

Nobody likes the 7d2, yet it is a hot seller.....
Perhaps Internet wisdom is flawed.....
A more correct interpretation is "early adaptors have left Canon".

The Internet does not like the 7D2 but dolina loves it nonetheless.

Although my wisdom has me endorsing Sony E-mount & Fujifilm X-mount cameras to new camera buyers who have no interest in wildlife/sports and other applications that needs a very competent AF system.

Chances are these new camera buyers will never get lenses/accessories that are Nikon/Canon specific. Not to mention the smaller dimension and lesser weight will encourage them to take their camera with them more often. That's one reason why I got my Canon pancake lens.

Have it clean then sell it. It will never be optically the same ever again.

"Canon didn't release a new full-frame DSLR this year"
Let us hope that changes next year with the 5D Mark IV shall we? :)

Saying bad things about Benro in the Philippines can cause torch and pitchfork crowd to appear.

Even if it's 1,000% true. ;D

Gitzo's worth it if what you are supporting costs more than $3,000 worth of gear or a project you can't fail.

EOS Bodies / Petapixel: Canon Full Frame Mirrorless
« on: December 03, 2014, 02:44:37 PM »
http://petapixel.com/2014/12/03/rumor-canon-get-serious-mirrorless-2015-full-frame-milc-works/

Nutshell:

Canon is rumored to be developing a full frame and/or rangefinder mirrorless interchangeable lens camera.

Judging by how well Sony & Fuji's forays are this may end being true.

Let's pray that Canon's foray is more impactful than the EOS M.

Thanks Click and tayassu.

tayassu coming from the original 7D the AF is superior. Well worth the upgrade if you shoot action/wildlife/sports/events/or any other application that involves movement.

If you tend to have non-moving subjects then a 70D is a better fit.

A lot of friends call this the "baby 1DX".

A little bit of trivia. This lens is the top selling L lens since pre-ordering was announced online.

No surprise.  There's a lot of pent-up demand.  After all, everybody has been expecting an upgrade to this lens since... well, roughly since the 70–300L shipped back in 2010, and anybody who could afford to wait has waited....
It is outdone by the Canon EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 III Lens and Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II Lens.

I never had any illusions that it will be outdo the ISO & dynamic range of a 1DX & 5D3. My expectation is it be better than the original 7D.

In all accounts I am impressed with the 7D2.

Pricewatch Deals / Re: Lexar 64gb 1066x card on sale
« on: December 01, 2014, 01:36:27 PM »
Amazon now has the 64GB Lexar 1066x CF Card at $100 with 2 units left + sales tax. In my case 9%.

Got myself a 256GB PNY USB 3 flash drive for $70 & a 256GB PNY SDXC for $97. The SDXC card is a great & cheap way to expand the storage of a Macbook Air. Although you will need to eject it to enter deep sleep. For the USB drive... dude, it's 256GB USB 3 flash drive for $70. Yeah, it ain't top speed but it's 256GB!!!!!!!!

Would have gotten 64GB Lexar 1066x CF cards but will need to unload my 800x cards to do so. Got lazy.

Wonder how massive/heavy a 1" or APS-C SX60 HS equivalent would be.

My mistake, I meant Lexar CFR1. Link shows read/write advantage. I have the dual slot UDMA 7 reader from Lexar and the difference is too small to bother upgrading but if you do not have any USB 3 card reader then I'd buy the CFR1.

If your browser shows FREE shipping then great but on mine it says "Calculate Shipping"

Lexar CR1 appars to have the fastest read/write of any UDMA7 reader.
