EOS Bodies / Re: What will the 650d sensor be like?
« on: June 07, 2012, 06:25:40 PM »
I didn't mean to put down the 60D in any way.

Just saying that Canon made the 650D identical in specs to the 60D (sans the top LCD).

the double dial is very useful for the people interested taking photos...and the 60D has been a big let down for me at least

Can't say as I really see that as much of a review. More of a short description.

Don't for get 5D3 is slower than my 7D.

yap and it's slower than my 50D...we won ;)

i miss the times when canonians was screaming for every bump of megapixels in newly announced sensors…now they are screaming for the opposite; just ridicolous
(but i get a lot of fun)

Let's all take a deep breath and accept that some camera manufacturers have great sensors, while some manufacturers have great JPG engines. Let's all also accept that some camera manufacturers show progress by having high megapixel and high ISO cameras in one body, while some manufacturers have great JPG engines.

It is just a matter of taste and style.

yap and some camera manufacters are dependant for their sensors from a collapsing company and their 3000$ cameras are slower than 600$ cameras of competition :D

a sigma 17-50 f/2.8 HSM OS...24-70 it's too wide, and the canon 17-55 it's too expensive

EOS Bodies / Re: where to sell canon gear, I'm moving to Nikon

You should just donate your unwanted gear to your local Goodwill store, like Ken Rockwell does.

+100

i agree...nikon gear is cheap in the end, so you wouldnt need so much money

EOS Bodies / Re: *UPDATE* Canon Rebel T4i/650D on June 8 [CR3]

I enjoy your posts and you obviously have a wealth of tech understanding.
As far as the 7d softness debate. I too, borrowed a 7d for a few days, and compared it with my t2i. The out of camera images appeared softer / fuzzier. This mystified me... as the 7d is supposed to be far superior. Could you explain again in terms for laymen,  :) why this is - and how I can make the 7d's jpgs appear sharp ?

they have more or less the same sensor, the same processor so the resolution would be similar.
the 7d is supposed to be far superior for costuction/fps/AF and so on but not for the resolution of the sensor (maybe the sensor of 550D is a little better than 7d one)

maybe the lens you used has better focusing on 550d than 7d; i had a problem like that with my old sigma 70-200 hsm ii, that focused almost perfectly with 450d and FF a lot on 50D (i had to change the mfa to +16)

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon EOS 70D & 3D Prediction from Japan
« on: June 05, 2012, 01:27:52 PM »

Plus Canon Inc.'s R&D spend has fallen over the last 2 years by a couple of percent to 8.5% of net sales (FY2011), still higher than Nikon's 6.7%, but the major difference is that Canon have stated anecdotally that Office & Industrial R&D is growing, thus implies 'Consumer' division (includes DSLRs) has fallen by a larger amount.

it's the 8.5% of a 100% that's 4 or 5 times bigger than nikon, and nikon has reduced expenses on r&d of sensors. my guess is that canon is spending more than nikon on r&d

Lenses / Re: Which wide angle lens for 60D
« on: June 03, 2012, 03:21:46 AM »
tokina 11-16 if you need large apertures or sigma 8-16 if you want to go very wide/smaller level of distorsion @12mm

190
wwwoooowwwwWWW....seriously can be a threat for all...jst because there are a lot of revenues in PaS

191
dont think so...the sigma sd1 resolve more pixels than d800 since a year and nothing happened...maybe pentax is putting pressure on them

@tayvin
in my opinion the price it's too high, just because the mk2 debuted at a lower price, and i am used to get a better product at same price if not lower after some years, but for sure they listened to "users"

@cliffwang
i dont have to do a poll, nikon would enter barely in top 10 Canada's companies by revenues as an example; i didnt say it's a small company but i dont see it as a big company

193
That's what I thought.  Nikon is trying to get more market share with lower profit.  And Canon is trying to maximum its profit with it market share power.  That's how to run a business.  Just too many people cannot see the points.  Canon and Nikon are big companies and have many investors.  Their decision makers need to make right decisions for their investors, not their users.

no...Canon is a big company. 4 times bigger than nikon for market cap/revenues and profits.

and no...from the balance sheet of the last financial year nikon increased the revenues lowering cost of manufactoring, so it's doing the opposite you are telling us.. no-one is on the market for charity

1. I have mentioned Canon is bigger than Nikon.
2. I have mentioned businesses need to make decision for their investors, not users.
3. There is no conflict between "lower profit and making more profit than before"  If a company can make 500M last year and it could make 750M this year, the CEO said let's make only 650M and get more market share.  Any conflict here?

I really don't get why you quote my post and replied with something not related.

1. you said both are big companies...i dont think nikon is big; nikon is active in too few business segments
2. i said just what you said, so dont be angry. btw they are "listening" what people will buy....that's called marketing, but for the  higher segment they listen also to "users" (i guess you refer to pro and forum's people), infact they have improved the 5d in the way the "users" asked (no more megapixels,better autofocus, faster framerate)
3. you said that nikon was expanding the marketshare lowering the margin, but from financials they are doing the exact opposite...at least from their last FY


194
I've read your bitching and whining for the last 3 months... jump over to nikon, get over yourself.  We get that you dont like canon right now or the 5d3... dont buy it... i'm sure canon will be crying over your lost business.

nahhh...he would start taking some photos to change and improve his technique :)

195
a scaled down FF camera already exists...it's from canon, has 21mpix sensor and it's called 5D mkII; selling for 1600€ here in italy

oh you are a canon marketing genius.  ::)

i think we are all more then happy to pay for 4 year old technology while nikon users will have a better FF camera with the D600 (and yes i think there is no doubt it will be better).
 
tell it canon.. i think they will be more then happy to stop spending money on R&D.. we just buy their old technology.

that makes so much sense!!!    ???

i cannot see crowds of amateur switching from their aps-c camera maybe because they dont care about FF

now let´s ask... what do you know?
honest... how can you tell such BS when in every photography forum people scream for a "cheap FF" camera.

there is a diffence between d600 and 5dmkii....that d600 doesnt exists, it's not annouced yet and we dont know how the camera will be (if...it will be)

it tell such bullshit because i cant see a lot of people switching to FF, neither Forum peoples that represent 1/100000 of people that buy a dslr…maybe thay are waiting for a FF in 500€/$ range...lol
