EOS Bodies - For Video / Re: A Suggestion on the EOS-1D C Replacement [CR1]
« on: February 23, 2015, 01:58:04 PM »
I sincerely hope this is true! Why? So all the morons who type 5Dc instead of 5D realize they have no business changing the name of a camera for a company.

Wait... No... I just remembered... These are Internet idiots, they're unlikely to realize much of anything. In fact, at least one will probably try and be funny and say that Canon owes them for infringement with the name 5Dc.

I have no idea why I let Internet morons bother me...

Nothing like arguing the semantics of the (ridiculous) English language on an international forum.  Good job guys.

EOS-M / Re: First Image of the Canon EOS M3
« on: February 03, 2015, 09:57:42 AM »
Judging by the lens, they kept it similar in size to the original.  That's a good thing, an EVF would increase the size.  I expect it'll be compatible with Canon's hotshoe add-on EVF.  An extra dial means more control, also good.  The integrated grip is nice, glad they ditched their proprietary strap lug.


If Canon wants to compete it needs an EVF model. If this does not come with an EVF built in, then there isn't much hope for Canon to compete in a ruthless market segment.

I'm sure you're right.  After all, the EOS M was merely the second-best selling MILC in the largest geographical market for the segment, beating out models from Fuji, Olympus and Panasonic despite lacking an EVF.  Not competitive at all, right?   ::)

Look at the price it had to come down to in order to sell... They still need to make profit in order to be called competing. You could get one for $250 with a lens, when the original price was closer to an A6000, which spanks the noodles out of it.

You're talking about North America, where MILC sales are weak.  I was referring to Japan...there was no 'fire sale' on the EOS M there.
Got it! Thanks for the info.

I don't know a thing about the market for the EOS M or MILCs in general, in any geographical region or worldwide, but I just love the expression spanks the noodles out of it!

Well I find it to be racist and degrading to Asians...  Kidding... of course.  It's pretty hilarious :-)

EOS-M / Re: First Image of the Canon EOS M3

Look at the upper right hand corner of the image of the camera (if you were looking at the back of the camera, then the upper left corner) and then down the side, ending at the bottom right hand corner of the image (bottom left of the back of the camera) with 3 distinct little ledges... That looks like a tilting LCD to me...

Also, the hotshoe looks eerily similar to the G1X Mark II, as does the placement of the pop up flash.

So they're copying Sony's A7 line. canon is doomed.

SO many people joke around and poke fun at people who say xyz company is "doomed" if they do or don't do _____. I always thought they were being dramatic. Apparently not. You ACTUALLY used the word doomed! LMFAO!

Wow... you managed to troll a rumors website.  You must be proud.  How about you throw that accomplishment on your resume and tell all of your friends and family so everyone who actually might matter knows what to think of you.

EOS Bodies / Re: Big Announcements Coming Next Week [CR3]
« on: January 26, 2015, 08:02:31 PM »
I'm still proceeding under the assumption that the "big megapixel" camera is actually a DPAF sensor where the megapixel count of images will be half that of the number of photosites.  So, I'm expecting a 26-ish mp camera.  Which would be fine with me, I don't need and truthfully can't handle (processing) over 50 megapixels.

Is the 70D specified as a 40 MP camera?

No.  But the talk prior to it being released was that there was a 40-something mp APSC camera coming.  So, I'm just going under the assumption that this talk is exactly the same scenario.  Talk of high mp that actually turns out to be high photodiode.

Canon General / Re: Photographer Petitions Canon for Left Handed Camera
« on: January 26, 2015, 10:04:52 AM »
I'm left handed but can't imagine shooting with a left handed camera.  It would feel awkward to me.  But, I'm sure over time I'd get use to it.  However, I would never specifically purchase a left handed camera at this point.

I can empathize with the petitioner though.  Hopefully, touch screen technology will help significantly.

Lenses / Re: Lens received by Canon Service in California
« on: January 01, 2015, 07:36:39 AM »
A few weeks ago I picked up a Canon 50mm 1.2 L from another local photographer at a decent price, $1050.
+
so it will cost me $238 plus what I paid to send it there.

So, you're paying $1288 plus shipping to get it to CPS (so presumably over $1300 total) and you could have just purchased it brand new for $1240 here: http://www.canonpricewatch.com/product/00592/Canon-EF-50mm-f1.2L-USM-price.html.  For that $1240 you'd get a one year warranty and the ability to return a decentered copy.

I'm always amazed at the price of used gear that's older than one year old.  Don't get me wrong, I've sold gear over a year old and been the one benefiting from such ridiculous prices but I don't buy used gear over a year old (except one time for a 5D Mark II and I ended up selling it for a $250 profit 2 months later) and only buy gear with the original receipt.  You've got to be smart and savvy when it comes to buying used gear or you can end up spending more for used than you would for new.

Lenses / Re: buying advice: get a 135mm f2, or use existing 70-200mm f2.8?
« on: December 26, 2014, 07:48:47 AM »
I don't own the zoom and only recently purchased the 135L but it's become my favorite lens. I don't have much to add that hasn't already been said except... The FLARE from this lens is spectacular. Anyone shooting portraits with it who hasn't experimented with the flare for that different portrait is really missing out.

EOS Bodies / Re: High Megapixel Camera Coming in 2015 [CR3]
« on: December 17, 2014, 09:08:04 AM »
Admin - have you excluded the possibility that this is a 23-25 mp DPAF sensor?  I believe we were previously led to believe that Canon was launching a high MP APSC sensor (which later turned out to be a 40 million photosite 70D which takes 20 megapixel pictures).  Just checking to see if that's the same thing here.  If it's a 5D model, the line Canon is known for video, I could absolutely see this being the case.
