EOS Bodies / Re: Lack of information with announcement so close

I am surprised that there is no info about the eos 650d just before the 25th anniversary of the eos 650.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canon_EOS_650



The 25th anniversary of the eos 650 was on 17th of Feb 2012 according to this:

I know there will be a Canon event on 2nd March in Shanghai, China! But the person who leaked this info said there is nothing new in that event, only a few "old stuffs" such as G1X and three lenses ;D ;D

Hum,I just wanna say,as a canon fan from China ,I read every piece of news about the successor of 5d2 at Chinese websites for 2 years.What I should say is every (yes,I said every)news was copyed and translated from aboard.Our webs do not have any sources can bring us fresh and independent news. So do not trust them.I rank this for CR0.
Haha, well said! What's ur id in xitek?

The 5d mark III rumors cannot be trusted, it was there since May 2011
This is the source:

And as a Chinese, I know ZOL website is highly unreliable.

It is about time for a new Rebel (650D) :). Perhaps this is what is going to be announced on 28th.


LOL, that would be funny, EOS 650D on the 25th anniversary of the EOS 650.

Yes, and it will be Canon's 75th anniversary as well (EOS 650 was on it's 50th, according to wikipedia :) ). This is why I'm expecting something special at the end of this month or at least in March.

EOS 650 was on it's 25th anniversary on 17th of Feb 2012!!

So it's already passed and nothing happened

EOS Bodies / Re: 5D Mark III/X Variation & New Flagship Speedlite? [CR1]

1D VI's AF is more than enough for me, even the 7D's.
Just wondering why Nikon's mid-level DSLRs usually can have the essential features(AF, metering, response time,etc) from their flagship. But Canon usually does this oppositely. One thing I really don't understand is why Canon cannot put the spot metering on outer focus points except the 1D which Nikon put this to thier lowest level D70 since 2004. Can someone explain this to me??

Simply, it is a different mentality regarding differentiation of models. Canon usually does with features such as AF while giving even lower models a high MP count while Nikon differentiates using MPs while features such as an advanced AF are given even to the lower models.

That was true up until now, though. We still don't know if Canon will stick to their usual strategy or go in another direction.
Nikon just didn't have any choice to sensors because Sony only had 12mp ff sensors at that time. So Nikon had to use it from d700 to d3s. But they weren't hesitate to put high mp in their bodies once they got from Sony such as d7000, d3x and d800!
What about Canon?? They don't have choice to choose af??

I am saying this not because I want to jump ship, I am still happy with Canon right now. However, if we don't buy Canon's flagship we just don't get their lastest technology( I am not saying the old one is bad).  Can I just say Canon and Nikon treat their non-pro consumers quite differently?

According to the picture here: http://detail.zol.com.cn/picture_index_628/index6276988.shtml

26.4 MP
ISO expandable to 102,400
19 point AF system, 3 cross type points
DIGIC 5
4.9 (?) fps continuous shooting

No idea what the source is. Looks like a screengrab of an english/US website.

This was listed on that website more than 7 months ago and I believe the source was from http://www.cameragearguide.com/

Thx for that link, very much appreciated....downloading now.......thank god I have UVerse.
Geez, all the pics were shot by 5d mark ii! It has been confirmed!
A Canon fanboy did this and posted them to a Nikon forum, then he hided in shadow while hearing all the compliments about how good the D800 is from all Nikon users!

Are you freaking kidding me???  LOL....that is hilarious.....

I'd love a link to that discussion.

The sensors I tested were of the same generation and of about the same QE.

That's not true at all. The G12 has an extremely advanced sensor that has a QE of 55% the 5D has a QE of 25%. That's more than a stop of difference. You're comparing stone age technology to the space shuttle.

I think the problem with your test is that you have to account for the number of t/stops in each camera's respective lens. If you actually shot the images above at the same f/stop, shutter speed and iso and didn't just try to get the exposure the same, then most likley the lens you were using transmitted twice as much light onto your 5D as the lens on the G12 due to the quality of the glass.

In any case. The point is that while it is possible to make a 300 megapixel monster of a camera with 55% quantum efficiency, they haven't done so. My guess is that the cost of scaling up the G12 sensor makes it not cost effective.

I'm positive that Canon has the technology to make a camera that has 36 mp and performs better than the D3s in low light and dynamic range. Unfortunately what is most likley going on is that they realize that such a camera would end up costing more more than creating 2 seperate bodies, one for resolution and one for low light.

It actually doesn't matter whether Canon has that kind of technology or not, nobody denies that Canon has excellent R&D in this industry.

It just doesn't mean anything to end-users if Canon don't put the technology in their products. Someone mentioned Canon is a conservative company which I totally agree.

Canon can still maintain their sales figure ahead anybody else just because there's no company like Apple in this industry.

IMO, Nikon focus on how to make better DSLRs and Canon focus on how to sell more DSLRs .
