EOS Bodies / Re: Bingo! New Canon 5Ds has 50.6 MP new rumored specs
« on: February 07, 2015, 02:30:01 AM »
All I wanted was Sony/Nikon like dynamic range, great color, clean low ISO's.
I'm getting a Sony a7r for the time being

I just picked up A7r with Zeiss 55mm even before the 5Ds announcement, thinking I don't need 50 MP, even if it was Sony sensor with better DR.  Finding out its a Canon 50 MP sensor with same DR as 5D III just makes me glad I picked up the A7r. 

I will still use my 5D III for most things, but A7r is a nice portable/backup solution.  I do wish the A7r had either a touch screen to utilize touch-focus or a 5D III type joystick for moving AF points.  Pushing C1 button to activate AF point to move, then using the front dial to move AF point up/down and a separate back dial to move AF point left/right a slow, painful, annoying process for A7r.. :'(

Why do I have this feeling the pricing will disappoint us?

Canon gave the clearest indication they could that they do not see ever making a ff mirrorless, certainly not in the foreseeable future, when they made the EF-M diameter so much smaller than the EF diameter.

I am forced to agree with this assessment  :'(  I just picked up the Sony A7r and FE55 f1.8... Again.

IF the Canon EOS M3 indeed comes with
* 24 MP APS-C Sony sensor ... as in A6000 (or even upcoming A7000)
* plus further improved AF system (Mk. III) from Sony A6000 (or A7000) 
* plus EVF (as in Sony A6000 or upcoming A7000)
* at a price not higher than Sony A6000 (or A7000) and available as "body only, w/o kit lens"
I will pre-order on Day 1. 8)

I was thinking along the same lines, but I couldn't resist the lure of mirrorless Frull Frame..

I had previously used the Sony A7r with Zeiss FE55 but returned them due to the high price for mere "portable" or "backup" duty. 

But the recent eBay deal on Zeiss FE55 for $799 forced me to rebuy that beauty (where is the new 50 mm, Canon?), and I will pick up a discounted and/or used Sony A7r after the A7r Mk II is launched.  If the A7r Mk II sports 50 MP as rumored and becomes larger with IBIS as A7 II has, then I'd rather have the svelt, 36 MP A7r anyway.. 8)

Hmm.  With the Canony collaboration, I wonder if the sensor in 5D IV will be the current Sony 24 MP sensor that is in Nikon D750 and Sony A7? 
If Canon is going to use Sony sensors, I personally wish the Sony 36MP sensor would make it into 5D IV  :-\

EOS-M / EOS M3 24 MP Sensor?
« on: January 29, 2015, 05:45:47 PM »

EOS M3 may arrive with a 24 MP sensor, and since it may be unlikely that Canon has developed both the 20 MP sensor (7D II) and yet another new sensor at 24 MP, could this be the ubiquitous Sony 24 MP sensor?   If so, how do we feel about this?    :o

We don't know anything about the new sensor yet other than it's rumored to be 50mp.

Is it just me who thinks 50 mp is not a good idea unless the sensor size is substantially larger than even full frame?

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon 7Dii vs Samsung NX-1 Epic Shootout
« on: January 19, 2015, 06:11:58 PM »
Nice review.  I was disappointed to see the Samsung, even with its BSI sensor, do worse at high ISO noise even compared to Canon's crop sensor.  Perhaps what I really want is a Samsung BSI sensor at around 16-18 MP, not 28 MP.   :-[

another 5 stinking, unnecessary dwarf-sensored, crappy consumer digicams back from the year 2000. 

Canon under-delivering as usual  :'(

Third Party Manufacturers / Samsung NX400 with NX1 BSI sensor
« on: December 22, 2014, 07:28:03 PM »

Smaller body NX400 with the NX1 BSI sensor, around $900 with kit lens.  If true as rumored, that will be my next camera purchase to supplement my 5D III, seeing how nothing similar is coming forth from Canon  :'(

Uhh, the 'conclusion'

"Ultimately I can’t recommend this camera. Canon sports shooters with a big lens investment would be better served investing in a used 1D Mark IV which will outperform this camera both in terms of image quality and performance, and everyone else should consider a D750 (or a D4s if you can afford it). Sure you’ll get less frames per second on the Nikon, but nearly all of them will be in focus and you’ll have killer image quality too!"

It's rather odd that instead of an aps-c camera (7D II), he recommends a APS-H (1D IV) and two full frame cameras (D750, D4s).  They can shoot at 1.6x reach advantage?   ::)

yeah i'm using it to edit photos directly on the phone taken with the iphone and man even the white balance editing works great which is wierd since its all jpg isnt it?
its a great app on an iphone

Hmm.  Photo editing on the phone is not exactly what I foresee enjoying, but it's not too slow on iPhone?

EOS Bodies / Re: Upgrade current body or wait?
« on: November 25, 2014, 05:10:33 PM »
We are in the middle of a paradigm change in camera design, so if you want to invest in the past rather than waiting 6-12 months for the future, then go ahead. Be my guest.

It's not even going to be 6-12 months' wait for the next Sony "A9" or Samsung NX1. 

I have a cabinet full of Canon L lenses, so I will likely stay put, but if I were OP, with T2i and several consumer-level lenses only, I would not invest into Canon ecosystem currently.
