How do you think there is a pop up flash? Explain pls. This is exciting.
As far as I can recognize the shape of the viewfinder bulge it's looking more like the ones with pop up flash and not like the ones of the 1- or the 5- series. That means:

Flatter, wider and not so high.

Your opinion?

I do not know enough..

You guys are great and yes based on your observations and my limited Korean

Everything fits together:

The ads says someting close to : In November Canon goes all white....

So that looks like a white Eos 100D  bah..... I thought I found something interesting

Hope you are wrong wrong wrong....

assuming, that it is no fake and looking at the viewfinder bulge
I would say, this camera has a pop up flash.

so no 1-series IMHO. But maybe the 7D2...?

But thank you for sharing.

Whoa!! What a lovely ad. Waiting for CR guy to give his comments...

Dear Canon.
You are totally stupid. You do not know how to run a company. You do not do any research on product needs and costings. You just make products that CR members do not like.

You do not bother about the post production houses who can afford and need 4k resolution monitors for their Digital Intermediate coloring work or to check their high end compositing/graphics work.

Stupid stupid stupid.


And do those cams have af sanj?  And if so does the dop or cameraman use it?

No Paul the cameras I use come with manual focus lenses and my focus puller has worked with me now over 16 years through several main steam movies.

Hi again everybody,

By reading and re-reading all your thoughts and comments, I guess I have a clearer picture in my mind now. The only thing that made me consider the (rumoured) 7D Mark II is the fact that, being it a crop sensor, it might give me more reach, but then I will have to compromise, somehow, on IQ. The 1DX has got it all, so I guess I'll go for it. Also, I think I'll get rid of the 7D, since I rarely use it now (only in bright, sunny days) and, moreover, I don't need 3 cameras.

Dave, congratulations on your decision!  I think you made the very best choice!  Also, I think once you start shooting with your new 1DX, you'll be surprised how much reach you're not needing, the AF and the IQ being so much better than your 7D, you'll be able to very easily crop for your extra reach without any issues in quality degradation. 

Also, be careful, seems like lot's of 1DX owners get some sort of itch for 500mm - 800mm L glass! 

Congratulations again on your decision, I'm looking forward to seeing your 1DX images!! 

All the best!  8)

Thanks Krob. :-) I guess, my 5D Mark III will see less and less use, too. ... Hahahahahah ... Well, to be honest, ever since I purchased my first L glass (the 70-200 f4), I've developed a serious case of "L" addiction. :-)

I always reach out for my 1dx over the 5d3 for most things. Enjoy!

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Appeal of Nikon Df

I like the concept of the camera. No video, only stills. I have not ever used the video mode on my camera. Actually, it would be nice if Canon could have used that space for more still photography features. Thats why I bought the camera in the first place.

Sorry, that's just a ridiculous statement, video doesn't "take up photo space", it's not extra hardware or neither does it take away from overall ability/quality or is in place of having "more photo features" (like, what more do you want??). It's just the live view mode made possible with the type of sensor that later lead to a recording ability, video. Taking video out doesn't help a stills oriented camera be any better at taking photos, it just can't do another basic feature technology today is expected to have.

As for how the Nikon DF is, well, they came close but it's still too fat and reminiscent of a very modern camera. Where's the slim, not too tall and simple film camera? Even if Nikon were to nail the look of an FM series camera better, that price! Sure, Canon sold tons of 5DIIs around that price, and this camera is probably better, but it's not cutting edge, and nor is this 2008, it's gone down in spec compared to modern releases but demands a premium. Meanwhile Fujifilm with their excellent cameras with sensible pricing. Not FF? Well the X100 rivals or even beats my 5DII for image quality and ISO performance, and the X series don't resemble any true retro camera, but they got the design right, it's nice to use and looks nostalgic enough, I did insult it for a while until I picked one up, used it a little, and fell in love~
If Canon made one, I always liked the New F1 but that's a lot of bulk and weight, something today's DSLRs already have, so like what a lot people seem to want, an AE-1? But seriously, if Canon did something similar they'd be bashed for copying Nikon AND be insulted for being late to the game...

In all fairness, it is not a 'ridiculous' statement. Lack of video would certainly simplify menu and button layout.

I wonder if age has something to do with who will like this camera. I strongly suspect it is the 40+ people who will like it more. And I suspect it is made keeping them in mind.

And in the cinema world, believe me some pretty damn serious pros talk about stuff like DR all the time and they take it very seriously.
For the formats used in the cinema world, DR is very important and taken seriously.  So it is interesting that Canon has a significant presence in the cinema world, and in the video world generally.  For the past few years I've regularly seen videographers using Canon DSLRs and have yet to see one using Nikon or Sony.


Cinematographers are concerned about DR, sure.  But just as they don't rely on a camera's autofocus to control where the camera is focused, they don't rely on the image capture medium to control the DR at capture. Rather, they control the DR of the scene by managing the lighting (floods, diffuser 'tents', grad NDs, etc.). 

Canon has Ron Howard, Nikon has.......Ashton Kutcher.  :P

Still photographers use the same methods to control DR as cinematographers. Of course.

I think it's a bit too soon to be saying auto-focus isn't required on a professional video camera. We need to see what the autofocus is capable of first.  Purists don't need to get the upgrade or can set the focus to manual if it keeps them happy. I expect autofocus will be a big selling point for low budget productions and one person companies.

Absolutely correct. And I might add that when I work on a full fledged video job I use cameras better than C100. C100 is aimed at productions with limited budget and in this case this feature is super welcome. Even for documentaries... Lets see what future holds..
