EOS Bodies / Re: Comparison hybrid AF T6i x Rebel SL1
« on: February 08, 2015, 04:31:37 PM »
Seems to be as good as duel pixel tech on 70D.

T6s can perform AF servo in live view. Don't think the 70D can.

It's pretty clearly not a Sony sensor.  DPReview is claiming similar RAW dynamic range as in the 5D3.

Saw this. Very disappointed. We'll see how the tests turn out...

Getting the EOS-M3 is a sure thing for me.

Hybrid CMOS AF III?

I'm curious and cautiously hopeful.

Hooray!!! Will be more than happy to replace my 50 f/1.4 micro-USM with the 50 f/1.8 STM version.

EOS Bodies / Re: The New Rebels Will be Called the 760D and 750D

Yeah, very interesting. It seems to imply Sony (or at the very least some new process sensor).

Sony APS-C has 1.5x crop while Canon APS-C has 1.6x crop. Hmmm...

It'll be exciting if the new Rebels have wider base ISO dynamic range than the APS-C flagship 7D2. ;)

I will be keen on EOS M3 if it has DPAF. I don't care about dynamic range at low ISO for this camera. Only my primary camera needs it, the M3 is my back-up.

Also keen on 50 f/1.4 ring-USM update.

Gimme DPAF and I'll jump on the M3 immediately.

Next up will be the 50 mm update. Just need one with ring-USM.

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon Confirms Development of High Megapixel Camera

Canon used to be highly secretive.The only reason they now feel compelled to reveal their development plans must be the loss of customers to other camps.

If Chipworks is right, then the jump to a high megapixel camera probably means a new sensor design approach:

"Given the geometric constraints of 0.5 µm design rules, Canon seems content to hang around the 21 Mp resolution for recent FF sensors through the use of shared pixels. Jumping to a higher resolution generally requires more advanced design rules and pixel sharing architecture...

It is worth noting that September 2012 marked the 10 year anniversary of Canon’s announcement of the world’s first CMOS FF sensor, the EOS 1Ds. While Chipworks didn’t analyze that camera, every Canon FF sensor analyzed since has used the same 0.5 µm design rules."

Let's hope it all works out.

Is there any data on the Samsung NX1 dynamic range? I have not seen any.

Thought it may be the right time to resurrect this old thread.

When I look at the latest DSLR best seller list on Amazon USA recently, I am shocked that Canon is taking a very severe beating in sales. This has been going on for several weeks now (from about Nov 2014 till early Dec 2014).

Never expected this.

The unending gripes on the internet forum are showing their influences now...

CR quotes EG quotes NL quotes a google translation of the patent - now that's a [CR-1] for you :->

Well, here's the original Egami article on Canon's patent

As Canon seems to be unwilling or unable to compete with Sony's high-res sensors, the way out might be further integration of video and stills. If Canon "mirrorless" settles for a 4k resolution sensor and enables high-quality frame grabbing @120fps, that would be a product meeting a high demand for a lot of purposes.

I also think the future lies in the ability to combine high quality video with stills. Let's see...
