EOS Bodies / Re: 46.1mp Canon DSLR Previewed at PhotoPlus 2012? [CR1]
« on: September 29, 2012, 04:34:58 AM »
A new rumor about Canon’s high resolution DSLR (46MP are rumored) showed up at NL.

    In an update to the high MP info, we’re told [...] that a camera will eventually appear in a 1D X derived body, in the same way as the 1D C. The information said that the actual designation was not known, but it would essentially be a ’1 series’. There was also a warning that there would be a long wait between any ‘preview’ and any cameras [...] being annouced and subsequently shipping.

Nikon's cheaper primes are not better because they are too late to the party? So this party has closed? Any new comer will always be considered not as good as canon because they are too late? That's why canon don't update these primes because their loyal followers still think they are the best even one of them has some QC issues for a long time.

I also chose canon in your poll because their long white L lenses. We are talking about cheap prime lenses for budget users here, so your poll results is meaningless.

BTW, please don't post your self portrait ;D

It's funny because it took Nikon 20 years to Finally put out decent primes.
What a fanboi~~

Thats a pity as I assumed that you would have the mental capacity to do the research by youself but since that is beyond your grasp, I stand behind my statement.

The Nikon 28 1.8G, 50mm 1.4G, and 85mm 1.8G are good lenses, But they are 20 years late to the party.
While IQ is important, its not as important as getting the shot in the first place. Canon has had these very useful features while nikon was still fiddling with screws in there bodies.

1. Full Time manual Over-ride - Also Not having to fiddle with AF-MF switch and leave my hands clear of the focus wheel.
2. Silent & Fast USM Focusing
3. Complete compatability with all EOS bodies, Even Rebels AF with all lenses. Not just the ones with screws. ::)
4. Pricing

Canon 28mm 1.8 - released with all these features in 1995 - Nikons 1.8G was released in 2012
Canon 50mm 1.4 - released with all these features in 1993 - Nikons 1.4G was released in 2008
Canon 85mm 1.8 - released with all these features in 1992 - Nikons 1.8G was released in 2012
Canon 100mm F/2 - Released with all these features in 1992 - Nikon has not matched.

Nikon didn't have a fast 28mm period in the budget range until now and its only marginally better than the canon.

Nikon's 50mm 1.4G barely surpasses the canon 1.4 in IQ, and that lens is from the 90's.

Nikons 85mm 1.8G is the same story, Infact it has more CA's than the old canon.

Canon's 100mm F/2 is still better than any nikon budget tele-prime.

If you look at the nikon AF-D series which competed against canons prime's up until the recent nikon primes, they're just horrid little lenses.

As for fanboyism, I'm anything but that. I agreed that Nikon's current bodies are better but they're prime lens selection isn't even fully caught up to canon yet. I even held a poll showing that alot of users agree with this.

If nikon has better primes, I wouldn't be shooting canon.  ::)
Whatever~fanboi always win

Thats funny you mentioned entry level FF users, as i can get a 28 1.8, 50mm 1.4, 100 f/2 & a 5Dc for close to the price you'll be paying for just the D600. ::)
28/1.8 ~17 years old, 50/1.4~19 years old, 100/2~21 years old
compare to
28/1.8G~5 months old, 50/1.4G~4 years old, 85/1.8G~8 months old
No, thanks~

7 year old 5D compare to D600??
No thanks~

I wonder if it will make its way into the EOS M line.
I really hope so, but I still don't think canon is putting much effort on the eos m line as long as they can dominant the APSC DSLR market.

This first eos m just tells us that canon is in this market now and they will not introduce anything smaller than APSC size. The delays in developing the sensor may also one of the reasons why they just released a very entry level at the beginning instead of aiming for more advanced market.

At least we all know now that canon do realise they have some catch up work to do in this area and I hope they don't just upgrade the body without improving the sensor then put a high price tag on it.

In the end, it's still a canon forum~~people here try to defend canon as hard as they can while canon is laughing,  they will continue this strategy as long as they can because the existence of these truly loyal consumers.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / A positive feedback for 6D
« on: September 19, 2012, 09:44:46 PM »
Someone tested 6D on photokina and it seems the AF is not bad at all :D

EOS Bodies / Re: Is that really it for Canon at Photokina 2012?
« on: September 19, 2012, 07:54:58 PM »
I thought it would be the new kit lens for the 6D.
As long as they can sell the 24-105 f4L with 6D as a bundle, they just don't care.
Nikon released 24-85 especially for D600 and also have a range of nice newly designed F1.8 lenses for people who cannot afford the F1.4 range. For Canon shooters, you either go for the expensive L or 28/1.8 from 1995, 35/2 from 1990, 50/1.8 II from 1990 and 85/1.8 from 1992. Nothing in between.

Would you still consider Germany a trust worthy ally if their prime ministers, one after another, visit the underground bunker of Hitler to pay their respect????

That is exactly many recent Japanese prime ministers did. They visited their National Shrine where at least 14 Class A war criminals of Second World War had their Tablets displayed as Japanese National Heroes.

Yes, these current day Japanese ain’t the ones that slaughtered Thirty Million Chinese civilians during the Second World War, but they as a nation is not taking the war crimes they committed around the world including to many US citizens seriously.

As far as they want to believe, is that they were beaten in the Second World War. They as a nation is not willing to face the countless atrocities they committed during the wars. Actually they are gradually removing these already scarce contents there are willing to admit from their text books.

The level of denial is like if Germany says Auschwitz never existed.

Due to the current close relationship between US and Japan, these outrageous behaviors of the Japanese politicians were largely and conveniently “ignored” in US news.

But to the nations around Japan, including China and South Korea, etc, these blood debt will Never be forgotten until either Japan as a nation Sincerely repent for the crimes they committed during world war II and vow to never do that again, or we will have to sleep with one eye open as they may pull another pearl harbor in the future.

History says otherwise, and is one of the main reasons for what is happening in China now.
That is ****ing stupid.

So should we europeans still be furious at Germany for all the crimes their nazi regime did against us during WW2? Should we take to the streets and smash Mercedes and BMWs?

I hope Japan pulls out all their companies from China and relocate them to friendlier countries. Japan don't need China, but China needs and wants japanese factories and products.

Worst part is that these demonstrations and riots are silently supported by the chinese government.
You have no idea what you are talking about

EOS Bodies / Re: EOS 6D...a bit lackluster...but with a couple gems?
« on: September 17, 2012, 05:49:35 PM »
I'm really wondering how a native ISO of 25600 is not modern sensor tech.  The D600 is all of 6400.  Of course, its only hype, so we need to see the real tests, but, as long as we are comparing on paper, the sensor sounds pretty good.  The AF is still a unknown, if the 11 points work, then thats fine for the intended users.
Another gem is the ability to autofocus at -3 EV.  That is better than any Canon DSLR to date.  Its literally focusing in the dark, and just whats needed when you are using that ISO 25600.

The only way Canon could achieve ISO 25600 was by weakening their color filter array. Red and Blue pixels are much more sensitive to green light than they used to be. Canon didn't innovate anything new there, for the 1D X, 5D III, or 6D. They cheated. I don't really call that modern, I call it cheap.

As for -3 EV, I think I mentioned that was a gem in my post above. Its certainly unheard of in any DSLR to date as fa as I know...previously the lowest light sensitivity was EV -2 (at least as far as I know). And it would be focusing in full-moon moonlight, not really the dark. When we can AF at EF -6, which would be starlight, then I'll be thoroughly impressed.
I metioned the 6D may have the similar AF module as the new pentax k-5 II in another thread when digicame-info suggested the rumored 6D may have strong low light detection module.
The Pentax K-5 II was announced 8 days ago claimed:
"The 16MP Pentax K-5 II DSLR is the company's 2012 flagship camera. It is built around a weather-sealed magnesium alloy and is bundled with the SAFOX X, autofocus sensor. This is designed to work in lower light than any of its rivals (down to -3EV) it will also provide greater accuracy when working with F2.8 and fast lenses. The SAFOX X also features more sophisticated focus tracking, to keep focus when the subject moves off the original focus point."

Ah, so -3 EV isn't unheard of, its just really rare and relatively new. Out of curiosity, how many cross-type points does the K5 II have? None? One? Many?
It has 11 AF points and 9 of them are cross type points. Nothing can be worse than 6D's AF nowdays.
Frankly, I don't think a -3EV AF can work without an Autofocus assist lamp, let's wait and see.
