I'd love to have a pop up flash on my 5D because it would be useful and I wouldn't have to carry my mini flash. 

But the posers can't have that because then they won't look like real pros as they wander about.

1 more than whatever they deliver ;D

(and oh what a critical 1 that will be)

How is this thread tracking in terms of all time popularity?
Just wait until sample RAW files show up and it only has 10 stops of DR. It will hit 1000 pages. :)

Very true. ;D

more:

If it arrives with 6 stops it will hit 38 pages (since even fanboys will be sickened a that point and everyone gives up and goes Nikon/Sony hah).

If it arrives with 10 stops it goes to 1000 pages. ;D

If it arrives with 14 stops it goes to 38 pages (everyone is happy, a few quick yays from everyone and the thread ends).

If it arrives with 16+ stops it goes to 48-100 pages (since the usual suspects (Keith Reeder, Neuro, etc.) now do a 180 and brag about how Canon is the king and Nikon and Sony are useless because they have such poor DR and how everyone knows that DR is the one and only aspect to a camera that matters and that, of course, at least 75% of all shots taken require a camera with extremely high DR and go on and on about it).

27'' is fine if you have the room, but it doesn't give you any better res - in fact lower - than the 24".

I saw that as a plus, at the moment, given all the complaints about scaling and how small the fonts and icons are in Photoshop and Lightroom on a UHD monitor.  I don't have CC, so I don't have that experimental 200% font feature that they added.

Lightroom scales the entire UI perfectly on UHD.
Photoshop CS6 and better do too on the MAC.
Photoshop CC does on Windows.

UHD for better for sure.

You can get the Dell UP2414Q: wide gamut, uniformity compensation, high bit internal LUT, direct current driven LED backlight, UHD, IPS for $700-something now.

Aye, it just reads a little odd to me, perhaps because I'm used to seeing the smaller number followed by "effective pixels" rather than "CMOS"?
In my head it still reads like it's telling us "there are a total of 50.6mp on the CMOS sensor but you can resolve 53 of those 50.6!" - but that's just me then?

I think it must be a mistranslation and they must've meant 53MP total sensor with 50.6MP imaging.

why did Nikon go from the D800 to D810 and drop the version of their camera *with* the AA filter

because marketing nonsense

150,000 pixel RGB-TR metering sensor
252 zone TTL metering

I don't get this.  I thought the 150,000 pixel metering sensor replaced the 35 zone (and similar) metering sensors.  Why would this be specified twice?

Wondered the same thing

yeah there are a few small things about the specs that are not adding up....

Hello 2007!!!!!

Gee...I don't even have an HD TV yet.  The only HD device in my house is my computer.  I may buy a 4k device later this year, but it will be used as a computer monitor.  I'm not planning to replace my CRT SD TVs at any point in the foreseeable future.

1. You are in the extreme minority still using SD 4:3 CRT for movies/TV. (personally I've had HD1080P TV since early 2007 and HD1080 tuner for computer monitor since something like 2005)
2. even you say you are going 4k for a monitor later this year and that could certainly be used to view 4k no?
3. 4k allows for much better quality 1080P overall
4. 4k can act as a 2x TC for 1080P wildlife
5. 4k allows for panning in 1080P frame

beyond just not having 4k, it sounds like no zebras, focusing aids, raw historgram, no 1080p60, not even the (granted in many ways useless, at least from a quality standpoint) clean HDMI out, for all we know it might even have aliasing (so far only 1DX and 5D3 have provided video without bad aliasing from Canon)


Granted, if they the stills totlaly knocks it out of the park (exmor performance, 50MP, 6+ fps in cropped modes, etc.) the video could be forgiven (although still a shame and a major lost selling point that will cost Canon money one way or another) and the stills would be totally amazing.

"50.6mp full frame CMOS
    53mp total resolution
"

???

All CMOS sensors have pixels that are masked out.  This is often used for black point calibration.

OK, well they phrased it weirdly since normally you'd say a 53MP FF sensor with 50.6MP actual resolution.

Quote
Both.  I'm sorry Canon is still using mraw and sraw despite the existence of the far-superior approach in the new DNG spec - lossy raw compression and/or downsampling.

Yeah.
But it is really certain it has the true crop modes too and that it wasn't just a mistaken bit of info mixing up mRAW and sRAW with cropped modes?

I hope they are there and I hope they were like Nikon and give it a boost to 6-7fps in those modes.

"50.6mp full frame CMOS

???

"   RAW (50MP), M-RAW (28MP), S-RAW (12.4MP)
    Crop modes 1.3x and 1.6x
"

So which is it? The dumb mRAW,sRAW stuff that rob you of all reach for wildlife and don't give you the true quality of a real RAW file either or useful crop modes? Or, best of all, both?


"Continuous shooting 5 frames / sec"

In all modes? Did Canon a dumb one and NOT use cropped modes which maintain full reach and allow for faster fps and just use the silly mRAW and sRAW stuff that rob you of reach and don't allow for more fps???

Or is the info just incomplete?

The way Nikon does it make their bodies a LOT better for general usage, since you get slow speed for FF but then nice speed with nice reach for sports and wildlife with true cropped RAW.

Will Canon be obstinate and refuse to 'lose face' that their way makes less sense or not?

Hello 2007!!!!!
And of course it won't even have the basic usability features of zebras or focusing aids or RAW historgram, etc. etc.

It should shoot 4K video (even though it would have 42 million wasted pixels since 4K is only 8 mp).


that's not how it works

A big reason for DSLR video is the cost and weight savings, so if they force to spend more and to lug a second set of stuff around for top video too that defeats the purpose and those extra sales mostly won't go to them anyway. If they don't want to let 4k and basic usability features go for quite so little yet then they should have (maybe they did?) also a 5Dsc for say $2000 more than the 5Ds adds 4k video internally recorded and the basic zebras/various while filming focusing aids, etc.

Assuming there is no technical reason it can't be done with this sensor (and perhaps there is, in which case then it's all besides the point and you just cheer on that it's a top stills only camera and they have delivered that).


Odd that your conference investor call thing made not a peep about improved video quality (despite GH4 and A7S blowing away sales expectations) and that in some notes they mention IQ and MP but in most they just mention competition in MP alone (a trace worrying).
