EOS Bodies / Re: Nikon unveils V1 and J1 Mirrorless Cameras
« on: September 21, 2011, 08:08:42 AM »
Hi,
    May be Canon can just use the G series and convert it to a mirrorless camera with adapter to use EF/EF-S lens.

     Have a nice day.

I think this would be a good plan for Canon:
  • keep the G series 'feel' and rename/work it a R/'Ranger' series.
  • interchangeable using EF-S (EF would be great!)
  • Ability to have full manual control, audio tags (as per G series) and some of the features from the s100 (e.g. GPS, DIGIC 5) - I think GPS fits in nicely with a rangefinder's traditional 'traveller' feel
  • keep the hotshoe!
  • ... while we are at it add an optional 'motordrive' grip. ;-)

EOS Bodies / Re: More New Full Frame Rumors [CR1]

well, clearly this is evolutionary. let me wager and outrageously accurate and educated prediction.

a fanciful 5dmkIII with the following:
55MP full frame image with 28 stops of dynamic range and a noiseless ISO range from 25 to 102,400. b/w noise compression kicks in at 409,600 ISO (max). indescribable AF with 90 point recognition at all offered exposure options, of equal power and effectiveness during video. 10,000,000 exposure durability on shutter with 60 - 1/32000 second timing variables. specialty flash sync at 1/2000 of a second. 24fps burst mode at RAW. manual video control over full dynamic range and iso. incremental frame rates from 1 to 240 frames a second at 18bit 4k resolution, uncompressed 4:4:4 prores codec with built in HDR mode. rolling shutter. in-camera aperture, zoom and focus control (wireless with controller). dual CF card reader/writer supporting up to two 512GB 120mb/s cards. 3G-SDI output. thunderbolt output. complete removal of aliasing and moire issues. quarter-inch input for audio, with manual audio control and phenomenal compressor/limiter/white-noise reducer options engineered by Waves.

bunch of other neat stuff.

oh, and it comes as an option with a brand new 16-135mm f/1.2 L series lens with an entirely new motion-predictive system of IS.

they have also rumored the street name for this camera to be appropriately titled "the game changer" ...Nike is also on board for co-op marketing.

Cool! Send this in via email and your comment is now a rumour ;-)

Another long time stalker-this time from Adelaide.

Looking to trade up the G9 to a 5D3 so I can use some of my good EF lenses I used to use with my 50e!

EOS Bodies / Re: What do you want from the 5D mk III
« on: April 08, 2011, 07:52:35 PM »
yeldarb, that is a excellent idea.

I'd like to be able to set aperture and shutter, and let the camera "float" the ISO as needed.
...

If makes perfect sense! "ISO Float" would be a real innovation (and it would be very simple to create).

It is such a great idea I can't believe it isn't built into cameras now.

Cheers

David
