It's the super-secret 9D..... A camera so secret that it uses the number of a different rumoured camera on it's strap....

I am not sure I'd call 30-50mp DSLR's "medium format killers".
yes they have the ability to produce finer circuits when it comes to smaller sensor sizes and it was also mention earlier by me.
And regarding 46Mp, the question is if they can expose a 24x36mm surface in one seance and if they the have the lenses and peripherals that meet this requirements, and will Canon is continuing with their old readout technique?
it requires considerably higher demands from equipment to expose a large 24x36mm sensor surface than a small compact camera surface in one seance
Wow, Don - you have way more patience to wade through 48 pages of "wisdom" than I did...
Thought I might just hear your opinions on this quick shot i did yesterday. Find it quite pleasing myself, therefore i need your commentsI like them both. The cat really stands out from the background! Normally I don't like animal pictures where the animal is staring directly at you, but the second one really works. I'd pick it as my favourite. NICE!!!
Haven't been doing animal shots before, what's to aim for?
(And which one do you prefer?)
Once there was a poster who threatened to write his congressman about having his freedom of speech infringed due to a deleted post.
I'm not sure how he thought his congressman would do something about a Canadian website that removed a inappropriate post. I'm certainly all for Freedom of Speech, but it also implies responsibility.
Thanks for taking the time to condense those quotes Don.
It's because of CR's absence of this kind of inane bull***t that I, and I'm sure many others choose CR to follow and post on. So many other forums are full of this kind of crap; let's keep it off here.
The overall standard of CR would suggest the admin and mods are doing a good job.
As for 'out of air accusations', how would you feel if, hypothetically, I called you, "Not the brightest bulb?"
What's a Yes/No Teller ??
What's DR ?? I thought "Dead Reckoning", but it could mean something else
Whats "High Ceiling" ?? is that like 30,000 feet in a 747 ??
200-400 what ?? Squirrels ?? That's a damn load of squirrels
And he mentioned "We must know what we are talking about", I mean, everyone knows this thread has lost the Plot, and it's now about Squirrels, and Nut Zippers (sounds exceptionally painful), and who can Post the most bizarre Image of a Squirrel, and Criminals that Live upside down in a place called Downunder.
I am eagerly awaiting the release of the 70D as my 500D is becoming iffy some shots just seem to disappear and the finance officer (hubby) has suggested I should have a new camera this will be my last chance to move to a better camera as we are both recent retirees. Does Canon do a world wide release or is there a trickle down effect I am in Australia and hope that the release is pretty much world wide. The next trip away is mid August and I would love to have the camera by then, if not I will just have to be patient.When the release a new camera, it is usually available everywhere at the same time. There will be a week or so variation between various suppliers, but normally it's fairly close together.
Canon wanted to upgrade its glass before releasing the higher MP bodies, and now they have filled out some of the line (never going to keep everyone happy) then they have a complete env. for photographers. Releasing the body before releasing the better lenses doesn't make sense and I would guess does not need the same investment as a new sensor line. Investing in lenses means you get a better return as it appeals to all sorts of shooters, so you've got a larger addressable market than the high mp body will haveAnd the right translation would mybe be: Canon can not with its sensor technology increase the number of pixels without using the sensor line from the compact sensor line , they can not use the old sensor lines as these are to course / rough. This means new sensors line which there are no indications that Canon have invest in, a investments of several billion dollars as for example Sony has done, or they can use the compact sensor line and stitch together an APS or 24x36mm sensor with a high cost
Meanwhile develop the next sensor tech to support them for perhaps the next 7 to 10 years (given previous cycles), and also watch and see how the market responds to the d800 - this in itself takes a reasonable time before you can reasonably assess the impact. And while you wait that new sensor tech is still useful for the whole of your product line.
It will be a pro body as I said earlier, and a body in between this and the 5d. Finally it will be in the 7d ii but perhaps a higher pixel density. Interesting times...
WE WILL soon SE WHAT CANON HAVE IN THEIRS SLEAVES, the market outside Canon = Omnivision, Toshiba, Sony, Renesas, Aptina etc are not standing still in theirs own developments of new sensors tech from mobile sensors up to 24x36mm sensors
When the annual meetings are regarding the new sensor technology Canon are not involved in this meetings, tell me what are the odds that at Canon would come with a new sensor technology before others as Toshiba, Panasonic, Sony etc?
Then they can say that they are improving the lenses or what ever in the mean time.
that is a great little lens. for about three years it was my favorite lens. now I have three L lenses and a fisheye, and while they are excellent, most of my photos that hang on the wall are from that one hundred dollar plastic lens. but part of that might be laziness about printing out new prints and framing them.
