EOS Bodies / Re: Make yourself happy
« on: May 26, 2013, 12:40:38 PM »
I got play around with the SL-1 at Sam's Club, and I was happy with the speed of the focusing in Live Mode with the new STM kit lens.  I'll bet the 40mm pancake is a blast on this camera...  and dinky.

EOS Bodies / Re: New AF Technology Coming in July? [CR1]

Does not Canon submit AF patents like they do for the lenses?

If this is even close (like half way) to what the 5DMk3 and the 1DX focus system... just close... it should be a winner.  If I pray and cross my fingers, they might put it in the 7DMk2 as well.  I'm really lusting after a better focusing system than the 60D and the Rebel XS.

PowerShot / Re: A New Large Sensor PowerShot Coming [CR1]

I wonder how this camera will compare against an EOS M with a similar lens configuration?

This would be an interesting Head-to-Head.

EOS Bodies / Re: No 7D Mark II in 2013? [CR2]

On one hand, it's a disappointment, but on the other, it gives me more time to save up for what could possibly be my last crop sensor camera purchase.  You can see I have high hopes on this one ...LOL

How (or where) do the new ART lens series compare to their EX series?

I like the Sigma lens I own, but the naming nomenclature is getting more and more confusing.

PowerShot Cameras / Re: NAB 2013: Canon USA, All About 4K

With all the 4k televisions on display at CES, these new cameras output should look spectacular.

Pricewatch Deals / Re: Nik Collection Bundle for $126.65

I think it used to be $299...  or $99 per application separately.  Put the coupon code in for 126.65 pricing.

Thanks for this post.  I took advantage of it last night, and bought the set.

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon EOS Rebel T5i Leaks
« on: March 20, 2013, 01:20:45 AM »
I don't understand this product...?!  If all they're doing is changing the name plate, why bother?

I saw that PowerShot posting with a DIGIC6 chip, but not this new T5i?

EOS Bodies / Re: The Next Rebel? [CR1]
« on: March 14, 2013, 12:28:44 AM »
Would it make sense for Canon to start a new "trifecta" of mirror-less cameras?  Say.. the new EF-M as the entry level, this newly announce Rebel as the mid-level, and possibly a full frame mirror-less at the high end.

Good stuff all around.

EOS Bodies / Re: A New DSLR Line from Canon? [CR1]
« on: March 13, 2013, 12:32:10 AM »
I am still a big fan of this mirror-less, compact, SLR look-a-like camera (use the Panasonic G/GH series as a standard).  I would like to be able to use the lenses I already have, so if an adapter like that needed for the ES-M is required, I'm in....  I guess.

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon EOS 7D Mark II Spec List [CR2]
« on: February 19, 2013, 10:24:56 AM »
This looks like the camera everyone wanted the 6D to be.  The specs look great on paper, and that said the price is not too bad either.   :o

Time to put some coins in the bank for next Christmas.   ;D

Interesting on where the 7D mk.II will fall consumer (prosumer) wise.  I don't own either camera, but all the talk seems to point out that the current 7D has a better focusing system than the new 6D.

I am still unclear as to what the "lesser" cameras markets are.  I get the 1D series as professional, but to me, I feel the 5D falls into the professional category as well.  Is this wrong?  I never thought of the 7D as a pro camera until recently, but the xxD series and the Rebel series (xxxD) seem to blend into one convoluted pile.

Has Canon positioned the 60D and the 7D similar to the 1D-S and the 1D Mkxx?   Canon seems to be "leap frogging" an not working in parallel, when they issue cameras.

Confused.. but what else is new...,

Lenses / History behind the white lens
« on: January 16, 2013, 02:55:57 AM »
Is there a thread relating to the history/reason for Canon using white for it's premium lenses?

I also notice that Sony has a couple of white lenses as well.

Is Canon discontinuing that lens!?  $600 for a $1000 is a GREAT DEAL!  If you don't like the camera body, you can always re-sell it.

...my kingdom for a bottomless wallet...
