EOS Bodies / Re: Canon EOS Rebel T5i Leaks
« on: March 19, 2013, 09:27:27 PM »
So, T5i goes head to head against Nikon D5200 while EOS-b competes against the D3200. Not bad.

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon EOS 100D Detailed Specs Appear
« on: March 18, 2013, 04:49:10 AM »
If the 100D face detect and contrast AF is anywhere as fast as the OMD, I don't mind getting one to pair with the 35 f/2 IS.

EOS Bodies / Re: Patent: Canon EF 14 f/2.8 with Flourite
« on: February 25, 2013, 05:35:03 PM »
The 14-24mm f/2.8 is an absolute joke especially compared to the 14-24mm f/2.8 from nikon...

A joke? How can this be when Canon does not even have a 14-24 f/2.8 lens to begin with?

This camera would have a pixel density equal to a 61mp full frame camera, that is far beyond the resolving power of most lenses. I doubt this camera would really come anywhere close to the IQ of the 5DmkIII

Doesn't this answer your own question? :D

Nothing odd about APS-C having more pixels than FF. Happened several years ago when Canon's own compact cameras have more pixels than their APS-C DSLR offerings.

Wah... so much interest in 7D2. Is this interest real? Or is it all web talk? :D

Anyway, I am only curious about the performance of image sensor on 7D2: both in terms of high ISO as well as low ISO. Rumors have it Sony is releasing a 20 MP APS-C camera soon with state-of-the-art dynamic range.

I have already replaced my entire APS-C collection with m43/FF stuff. Only a passing interest for me.

Even Sony's 24mp APS-C sensor has too much noise.

Not according to DXOMark.  :P

If true, is it me or is the Canon camera lineup getting confused? Used to be that upgrades were real upgrades, and you'd upgrade to get better features for a similar price as you originally paid. Now you're getting more, but paying more, and the difference between the bodies is getting smaller.  :o

Not quite.

Have a look at Thom Hogan's article entitled 'The Last Camera Syndrome'. We are getting there, if not there already.

EOS-M / Re: EOS M Autofocus Performance Won't Improve via Firmware [CR2]
« on: February 19, 2013, 08:15:49 AM »
What I don't understand is the critzcism about the 6D - AF... what I read is that it really performs well - it just sounds pretty shitty on the datasheet due to the limited number of (Cross-Type) Sensors...

There are many armchair critics out there...

EOS-M / Re: EOS M Autofocus Performance Won't Improve via Firmware [CR2]

Nothing could be further from the truth.

The awful EOS-M AF is killing the product. I would gladly have bought one if its AF is as jiffy as the one on OM-D. Anyway, I am now happily running the OM-D and 6D systems.

Have I said anything else? from the crop 1,5 =15.3 Mp from the Nikon D800 compare to  Canon 7d the pixels in the Nikon has higher QE compare to 7d APS

Repeat: this thread is about resolution, not your all-time-favorite topic on dynamic range and SNR.

266
It means that the sensor in D800  at APS mode = 15,3Mp  has better pixels  signal =they have a greater efficiency than the 7D.

This thread is about resolution, not your all-time-favorite topic on dynamic range and SNR.

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon's Roadmap for 2013 [CR2]

If we assume no sensor improvements, we get the following:

Look at the T4i. You can't pimp it out much more. The only things missing are wireless and GPS. Other than that, it has every function canon has for a camera. If there was a new rebel, you have to add this. This leaves the 70D with the only possible improvements over the new rebel as better build, shoulder display, and the reintroduction of AFMA. Since they said it would be incremental improvement..... No new sensor....

The 7Dii, if it is to better than the 70D, would have to be dual processors for higher fps....plus all the 70D functions except for tilt/swivel screen.

The problem is that I can pick up an Olympus E-M5 that beats the iq of any canon APS-c camera and they are supposed to be introducing an even better successor to the E-5 ..... Or I can go Panasonic......or I can go Sony..... Or I can go Nikon.... Canon is now positioned at the bottom of the APS-c world for iq and even micro four thirds is beating it. A new sensor is long overdue and no upgrade will be worth it until they release one. I just hope they do it before we add iPhone to the list of cameras with better sensors.

Well said. I've replaced my APS-C stuff with the Oly OM-D E-M5. :D

DR is not a hype it is a fact and it needs skills to use it , no one will have less DR or a lens with lower resolution
Hello, can I have a 300/2.8 MK3 IS with lower resolution- please

While I will also like to see marked improvements in low ISO DR from Canon, Panasonic and Samsung sensors, I do not harp on it like it's the only thing that matters in life.

I seriously what's gonna happen to you when the above manufacturers finally match the low ISO DR of Sony sensors? Will you lose your purpose in life? :D

That's right.... bash Canon for trying to make an inexpensive compact camera and not using a full frame sensor....

Do you realize what using a full frame sensor means......  it means that you need full frame sized lenses... remember the silly looking picture of the EOS-M mounted onto the 800/5.6 just after it was released.. that's the direction you head with full frame sensors.... large and expensive...

The vast bulk of people will never understand why you would pay $500 for a lens.... and $5,000 for a lens is unthinkable. these are the same people that buy hundreds of rebels and point/shoots for every "pro" camera sold.... these are the people that are paying for the R/D to keep new inovations coming, these are the people that are paying to keep the lights on at the Canon factory.

Next time you want to start a rant about something, think before you type.....

It's shocking how very few think before they type.  ;D

Canon could have easily churned out a mirrorless with a 5d mark ii-like sensor in it with a similar body style to the EOS-M, and kept it priced competitively.

Pricing a camera with a FF sensor competitively is pretty hard. Just look at the fixed lens Sony RX1 as a guide. :) Want a cheaper FF camera? You've already got the D600 and 6D.

Canon is in the business of money making. I'm sure their marketing staff must have done their homework and concluded APS-C is the way of the future. The sensors are cheaper to produce and the accompanying lenses are also smaller. Until manufacturers find a cheaper means to produce FF sensors, they'll always be reserved for a niche market.
