EOS Bodies / Re: EOS 55D 16.1 MP !!!
« on: August 17, 2010, 10:45:19 AM »
Its not a typo. 550D is not 16 MP. Unfortunately I dont have the magazine with me, as I saw it in one of my friends house. If someone is having that in this forum may be can post the picture. I will also try to get the magazine if possible.
Haha, classic.

Sooner or later, all cameras will have SD cards, I think. Maybe SDXT or how the successors will be called.
I like CF cards - 1st because I don't have SD cards and 2nd because they are a bit bigger better to handle...

Now I am honestly more curious.  How could something w/ iPads be bigger than either of his last two films for the camera releases?  Must be crazy.  I'm not saying that he is lying or that he slipped up...I'm more wondering 1) is it really going to be all that great and 2) if it is, what the heck is it?
If Canon announces something it's always great and revolutionary. Only the things Apple announces tend to be even greater and more revolutionary.

There are spots around the "G12", and the resolution of the lens is way lower then the other parts' resolution. Definitely Photoshop.

I also noticed that immediately, it's looks fake to me. Also the light/lightning isn't correct.
Yep. That's what I think too...

So if there are ony advantages in a plastic body why not to use one on all models ?
Because people go crazy about these Mg bodys and so they sell well. ;)

Well, seriously: a Mg body is probably sturdier than a plastic one. But the question is, if the normal user needs this. Maybe a professional photographer, who has two or three cameras around the neck and needs to switch between the really fast without being able to be carefull that they don't hit each other...

its the quality that counts and not the extra weight reduction.
Maybe for you. But not necessarily for everybody. I personally would also prefer a Mg body, but neither my 350D nor the 400D body broke and they're both plastic.

Besides, I don't know if plastic is really (that much) lighter than Mg. Mg is already very lightweight although it's a metal. I think the difference between the weight of a xxxD and a xxD comes also from the size of the body.

Looking at the pictures of the presumed 60D, the scratches near the flash popup button seem to show metal beneath.

Also, to those who say that Canon will have to make the move to plastic because of the Yen versus dollar:  That doesn't explain why Nikon's D95 will be magnesium!

I suspect the plastic body CR2 is bogus... How's that!
Would be cool! But the "scratches" near the flash popup button is the 60D (probably) sign from the side... ;)

Is it just me or does the circle wheel in the pics looks different in pic 1 then in the others? First pics looks like a 7D wheel.
I think the quality is too bad to say that. But on none of the pictures the scroll wheel looks like the of of the 7D (the 7D's has got a silver circle).

Any word on the MP count of the G12?
Any word on the sensor size? I think this is even more important than MP count...

Sure - but anything else than 1/1,7" would be a big surprise to me. :)
Jep. Unfortunately... :(

« on: August 12, 2010, 07:05:19 AM »
Could you imagine an S90 w/ an aps-c sensor?  Not quite an evil w/ changeable lenses, just an s90 w/ a larger sensor.  That would be cool.  Just to clarify, I haven't heard anything about that...this is just me dreaming here :)
That would really be cool. But I quess,an APS-C sized sensor would require a larger lens... :(

Hey, we're dreaming...let's just forget about reality ;)  We can let Canon worry about that :)
Okedoke. Let's pray the S95 will have an APS-C sensor! :)

How can it be that they suddenly make plastic sh... on an eos xx ????? :'(
I can't believe this either.
Don't get me wrong, I believe it, but I don't appreciate it. :(

Smaller than 50D - cool. Larger grip area sounds like better ergonomics... :)

Plastic body - sh*t. Not that the plastic body of my 400D isn't robust enough, but I like the looks of a Mg-body with parts where the black paint is gone and the shiny Mg is visible ;)... looks kinda indestructible!

Resizing a 18MP image to 10 MP using a decent algorithm is not very much different to using a 10MP sensor with larger pixels in terms of signal processing. After all it's always about integrating photon impact over time and position - it doesn't matter so much if it's done in the hard or the software.
This may be right for DSLRs with big enough pixels. For point'n'shoots I personally think it's wrong. As far as "dynamik range" is concerned, the photogate of the pixel is "full" when a certain amount of photons are collected. The bigger the pixel, the higher the capacity of the photogate, the higher the dynamik range.

Edit: By the way, I really like the pictures of the camera. Looks like a small camera with good ergonomics and good built quality to me.
