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.

37
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...

Pricewatch Deals / Re: Canon EOS 60D Body $799 at B&H
« on: November 24, 2012, 11:27:02 AM »
The Canon "Refub" site had them for $599.  That's as cheap as I've found.  I bought one last month from Canon for $695, and it was firmware updated and the shutter count was 25. 

So far I have added another 7000 to the shutter count, and it's near perfect... as far as I can tell.

Lenses / Re: New EF-S Lenses Are Coming [CR2]
« on: November 21, 2012, 12:35:00 PM »
What is the advantage of EF-S glass? 

I have heard that crop sensors have better focus in the middle of the lens on an EF mount.  Does this mean it can take full advantage of the entire lens in an EF-S type mount?

If you can hold out, you might want to wait for the 24-70mm f/4 lens.  It will have IS, which may off set the price to be close to the f/2.8, but who can say.

Canon General / Re: Canon's MAP Pricing Goes Into Full Effect Today
« on: November 01, 2012, 12:01:52 PM »
LOL!  Looks like the stock holders have spoken!

My suspicions that the great pricing was set by the market and NOT the company have been confirmed.  Another black eye for capitalism.   :o

Pricewatch Deals / Re: The 5D Mark II & 5D Mark III Get Cheaper
« on: October 29, 2012, 11:42:10 AM »
It would appear that is still doesn't save you money to be first on the block... 

Are these prices set by Canon or by the seller, or by "the market"?

IF BY CANON:  I am sure after stock numbers came out, Canon wanted to correct that shortage.  Of the list of things they COULD do, dropping the price of their new releases was probably the easiest.  (Presumably because they were over priced to begin with?)

You have to think they knew before the call they were not going to make the $1 billion mark, so why not raised prices on new releases and crossed their fingers.

Canon General / Re: Canon Can't Even Make a Billion Dollars Anymore
« on: October 27, 2012, 02:01:11 AM »
I have heard that sales of Compact System Cameras is big in Asia, and that can't be helping.

Concerning the f/8 auto focus - I ran into this on my 60D using a 100-400mm and a Tamron 1.4x teleconverter.  I was able to auto focus at f/8 and was surprised.

Was this a drawback on the original 1Dx firmware or a bump-up for the 60D on IT'S last firmware update?

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: 6D Need To Change Something..
« on: October 05, 2012, 11:17:07 AM »
I hope the reviews on this site are not going to be like this... 

It seems we all want a 5DMk3 at Rebel prices...  wouldn't that be nice.

Go buy the camera you think is better and send me your 6D.
