bleah, just wait for the non-name copies of this idea from China. They'll be 1/4 of the price and work just as good.

I'm no longer sure if the 5D4 will even be able to match Exmor or have 4k video. Everyone who has spoken with Canon reps is sounding super negative all of a sudden about the chances for even the 5D4 to get 4k video. I find that shocking and hard to believe. But I'm getting told that if I expect 4k on the 5D4 that I'm most likely setting myself up for disappointment as Canon still feels 4k is a super premium feature only fit for the $8000+ class buyer for the foreseeable future. And they don't even see them giving it basic low end features like focusing aids or zebras and such since those are 'ultra premium' features in Canon's mind still, apparently.
And some feel that they may not even have an Exmor like sensor ready even for the 5D4 either.
I've purchased 6 different and 7 total Canon DSLR, but I'm getting a bad feeling it may be time to quit.
For the first time I'm really stating giving all sorts of other items from other brands really serious looks.
I can't believe how negative the impressions of where Canon may be going I'm hearing from people who went to the trade shows. They are all saying Canon seems to have lost the plot and afraid they will total drop the ball on the 5D4 (no real sensor improvements other than some more MP and no 4k or anything really interesting for video at all beyond DPAF ). Some said Canon told them forget 4k or any video usability features unless the market and users literally force them into it with extreme demand made clear. They insist all that stuff it for high-end people owner and far beyond DSLRs. I hope it was just reps trying to push current stuff and some misinterpreting going on. But even the guy who works for a different Canon division who met some DSLR guys said that was his impression too.
65-point* all cross-type AF system for high-performance, accurate subject tracking with EV -3 sensitivity (center point) for focusing in extreme low-light conditions
The DIGICs are much more than just a relabeled ARM chip. Much more important for their purpose is the signal processing part of those chips, the ARM is just there to control those and run the firmware + interface. So having a faster ARM core is only half the battle won.
My gut says that everything they do with DIGIC (except for the ADC functionality, which really ought to be moved onto the sensor die anyway) can probably be done with a decent multicore ARM and a decent mobile GPU package. I could be wrong, though.
I think the D810 is still quite a bit at risk of cannibalization, especially due to the price difference.
D610 is the one I think will be most cannibalized, unless they lower the price substantially.
However, the majority of his picture will have been produced from under severely exposed data. When compared with someone using a superior technique / process, his image will be inferior even if that someone is using old tech such as 20D, or D70 or whatever.
Interesting rumor. Cinema Eos on Photokina? If it's true and we see a development announcment, then it's clearly designed to push down the ridiculously high interest/pre-orders of the just-announced Sony FS7. That FS7 just disrupts the market, it's clearly the end of the current C300/1Dc/C100 sales, therefore they will HAVE to respond very soon.
If anyone is not following the FS7 it:
-S35 sensor inside the F5/FS700 (therefore absolutely lovely image and very sensitive)
-Records 4K 10bit 4:2:2 XAVC internal like the 30K $ F55
-Records 180fps at 1080p and 60p at 4K
-Outputs 4K raw at 60fps and 2K raw at 240fps to external recorder
-It comes with everything ready to shoot, a nice EVF, shoulder pad, articulating grip, internal ND filters,
-It's the most well designed camera I've seen in years
-It's 8000$. Half the C300 and just 1.5K over the C100!
You have under exposed for this scene. Pic 0 histogram shows this, pic 2 shows that you have too much highlight detail after bringing in down 100.
Did you bracket for such a scene of difficult EV range ? If you had a 2/3 or 1 stop over exp you would be able to work the data much better.
It's a problem, sure, but if you shoot landscape, it's not an issue if you know how to properly exposure blend. That's what fine art landscape photographers have been doing for over a decade now. High DR just makes things more convenient.sure many shots didn't need to DR, but plenty enough along the way could've been helped for sure
Waiting for real world examples of what we are all missing
Go shooting in mountains where you've got snow and sunshine hitting the snow and shadows deep in the valley. There you want to keep "detail in the snow" (so that you don't just have big white areas) plus you also want to keep shadows from and in trees, etc.
Is that real world enough for you or are you going to say "Post a picture or it doesn't exist"?
Since I've shot scenes like that and not had a problem: pictures or it didn't happen.
I'm sick of words. I'm sick of opinions. I'm sick of theorizing. I'm sick of people misremembering underexposure tests as "real world normal exposure and there was banding!"
Pics or it didn't happen. If I was a mod it would be: pics or you are banned for a week
Since you claim all of these things are possible, why don't you lead from the front and show us how it is done?
Where are your pictures showing that Canon doesn't have a problem with keeping highlights and shadows?
Lots of people saying Canon's cameras can't do it and you're insisting that they can.
