So it's APS-C, and $1400, so going to compete against the 7D basically.
24MP vs 18MP win.
12fps vs 8fps win (even beating the 1D4 there).
GPS vs none win (but lose if you don't care and can't switch it off to save battery life).
50/60fps 1080p video win. (but only 28MBPS, up from 24MBPS in 24/25fps? more compression = bad?)
19pt AF/11cross vs 19pt/19cross lose (just on numbers, we'll see how well it works later).
In camera-panorama win if you like it, don't care if you'd rather stitch in-PC
Sensor-based IS win for old lenses, lose for battery life and heat.
ISO 50-25,600 (I always remember a TDP quote, just because you can, doesn't mean you should).
Selectable ISO range in AutoISO win (my mum's 6-year old IST *DL can, 550D too, why can't my 7D?)
5-frame AE bracketing win.
1200-zone metering win? 7D is 63-zone in viewfinder, not sure about in live-view.
30-1/8000s, 1/250s flash same.
Flash GN 12 (i think 7D is GN15?)
Buffer 13 JPG shots big lose (maybe blame the SD card?)
Battery life 400 shots viewfinder lose (7D is 1000 shots i believe).
Electronic viewfinder lose for me, battery life and dark-tracking main reasons. Depends if it's worth the extra 12FPS to you.
Ergonomics are always personal, and you'll learn to use what you've got after a few months. Personally, i'm sticking with my 7D. But yay for Sony, hopefully it's lit a fire under their 7Dmk2 development team, I expect nothing less that 28MP 9FPS 25ptAF for $1500 now.
ok so lets all say its true any idea on pricing what do you guys think will be acceptable ? I'm hoping no more than Â£2000 uk sterling
$2999 would be nice. Hope the price would drop in 3-4 months to $2499. Kit bundle with 24-105 II IS USM for $3999 would be fantastic.
So, if the A77 has a purely electronic viewfinder, what's the mirror there for?
Just for the AF system? And if so, why is it half-silvered and not fully-silvered?
the days of the 1d are over.
they are big, bulky, expensive, pointless and don't take better images.
the future leading canon DSLR's will be; a 7D, a 5D focussed on stills and a 5D focused on videography.
there is no need for another, larger, heavy camera in canons line-up. (possible exception of some 3D camera)
I have said in prior posts I fully believed the 5d would come out BEFORE the 1d or 1ds. The 5d mark ii crushed 1ds3 sales due to the same sensor, fraction of the cost... I believed canon learned their lesson, release the new 5d first, then after 6 months or so (after the initial rush and hype has settled a tad), come out with an even better 1ds that would make peoples mouths water... that way people have the incentive to buy the 5d AND the 1d, rather than just the 5d.
shnookums, dont be so quick about saying canon has abandoned the pro shooters... I'm a pro shooter and frankly, for what I shoot, the 5d would be a better tool for me that the 1ds. Yes I would love to have a 1d in my lineup, but the results and quality of the 5d to the 1d, in final output, to me, doesn't justify the price. Then to some, such as large agencies and corporations, perhaps the 1ds is worth it. In the end, as pro, we get paid to know how to best utilize our gear to provide the best photos possible to our clients, no? Being pro doesn't mean you always shoot with the best gear.
I don't think it makes to come out with a 5D before a 1Ds. But anyway. I agree with you about the pro stuff. Being pro is not about the best gear. But I can't be pro if I can't take pictures. The 5D is useless for me, at least 30% of the time. I would never risk it. I would have to bring a 1D anyway even if I had a 5D around.
i know ken rockwell is a penis that shoots jpeg but with the dates of previous releases and announcements he has a point.
if you shoot raw then image settings for sharpness etc in camera has no effect.when you shoot in raw you have just that the raw image data untouched by the camera you have to process the image yourself sharpness contrast etc.
P.S. Tried a 7D and it had most of the above but I found the images were softer than on my (wife's) 40D so I decided to wait.
Gotta turn the sharpness up on the presents. It does have a softness issue but it can be extremely sharp.
I shoot in RAW and it was my understanding that sharpness has no effect on RAW. Maybe I'm wrong on that??
Well, honestly I don't know. I shoot RAW as well and the 7D is very sharp too me and I have the sharpness turned up. I know the contrast and saturation settings don't make a difference in the RAW file. Maybe sharpness doesn't either. White balance seems to matter though. I've got some time tonight, maybe I'll run a little experiment.
Wow, kind of shocked the new P&S are still using digic iv.
More than shocked. Is Digic V still not ready yet then?
One tsunami later and I am still waiting...
Yeah, Lightroom is cheaper than a new 5Dmk3 will be, but I want a new camera! So let's use the "my old 300D has hot pixels that ruin my shots" as an excuse and say nothing to the missus about all this post processing stuff.
I wish my missus was as dumb as that...
