Could you PLEASE list the terrible things you have heard about the 1dx?
Please do not ignore my request, I so need to know.
Thank you MUCH.

D4 sensor in a retro look for cheaper than D4. Success!!!

I like the look and the manual controls.

If Canon comes up with something like this I shall surely buy.

Me too!

I was only born when the last great film cameras were in the last leg of their journey. So I never had the chance to use them, and I am not willing to buy a 30 year old film camera and some films to enjoy those pleasures. So if Canon comes up with something like this and I have the money I will jump onto it like crazy. The silver/black leather version is the one that catches my imagination the most. That is just gorgeous.

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Rumor: Nikon Digital FM2 - Retro look

What does 'pure photography' imply? To me, it means no video. Could be wrong though...

I was right!

What a fantastic looking camera!

DR is important at every ISO.  No problem with the current DR of Canon sensors.

No problem for you, or for everybody? Do you admit that for some it might be a real problem, not just something in their imagination?

I do not care about high fps, for example. Should I get involved in any discussion about high fps to say: no problem with 3 fps. If you are good photographer, you would be able to nail it even with 3 fps, etc.?

Valid argument.

I think we should all begin to focus on the things we do agree on so as to avoid rehashing so many of the same topics and arguments time and again:

1. The Sony sensor (D800/e) has the most DR from ISO 100-800.
2. DR levels out and advantage is gone after ISO 800.
3. 5D3 sensor does better in higher ISOs.
4. More DR is useful (and nice to have) but not always/or even often necessary.
5. Each sensor has it's own advantages AS WELL as disadvantages neither of which should be ignored when when assessing IQ or level of advancement in technology.
6. Everyone has differing needs when it comes to photography which most of us in here cannot account for.

Things to avoid since they are so clearly untrue/baseless and continue to cause unnecessary debate due to their antagonistic nature:

1. Any blanket statements such as Nikon image quality "trounces" Canon's.
2. Pre-determining whether something is completely unuseful or not before it is in people's hands.
3. Making any other inferences about how good or bad the new bodies will be since again, they are not in people's hands yet.

You taking the spice out. :)

Only tech-addicted photographers give a krapp about sensors - their clients don't, except they are tech-addicts as well.

I am my own client and I am a tech-addict.

Hi, I am Pi, and I am a tech-addict...  :)

Me too.

EOS Bodies / Re: Wait for the Canon 5D Mark IV or get the Mark III?

It's the 5D Mark 7 you really want to wait for... I wouldn't shoot anything until you can get a hold of that one.

You are amazing!

EOS Bodies / Re: to all the Megapixel and DR whiners....
« on: November 02, 2013, 10:28:56 AM »
Pretty pointless thread don't you think? Remember how the AF-crowd cried their hearts out about the 5D2 AF? Well, look what that got them.  ::)

Flaws are meant to be whined at, or no change will come.

I believe OP is recommending whining, just with who he thinks the 'right' people are.

To me a 7D would be a bird/wildlife backup camera to the 1DX. The most important thing for me, compared to what the current 7D provides, in order of priority:
1: AF. If it gets the 5DIII AF system, it will be a massive improvement.
2: High ISO performance. If it gets to 5DIII standard, I´ll be very happy
3: Dynamic range. I would love to see the DR number grow by at least 1.
4: Resolution. Provided I can get the above, I would want as much as possible. But I would not trade Noise/DR performance for more resolution.
5: fps. 8 is OK, 10 would make me happy
6: A good silent shutter mode, similar to or better than 5DIII. The 1DX machine gun can scare off grizzlies.

Your wish will be granted.

The context of this thread is not that "Canon makes the worst sensors", but rather that Canon is getting beat in sensor technology.

I know plenty of great photographers who make great photos with Canon gear. But this has absolutely no bearing on the fact that the Sony sensors, from ISO 100-800 are more advanced than Canon's.

So what? Canon will release some new sensors some day and they will be more advanced than Sonys sensors.
And then will Sony release new sensors.
And then Canon...

I think you got the idea.
Only tech-addicted photographers give a krapp about sensors - their clients don't, except they are tech-addicts as well.

All know this. Just that most do not want Canon to lag behind. And who knows what Sony would have by the time Canon comes out with newer sensors.

Speaking for myself, I want Canon to lead the innovations.
