Third Party Manufacturers / Re: rumor: D600 gets 16 Bit processing

Seriously, it's a rumor, and it's one thing, so isn't it too early to start with the "canon should be afraid" and "I'm selling all my gear" bit?
Seriously, this D600 rumor has been posted online for a while and with its detailed specs and pics, it looks very promising.
Do we have a solid "6D" rumor at least CR2?

There's still rumors of a 5DmkII successor in the pipeline, and, well, the 5DmkII . . .

The only thing canon might have to admit (not fear) is going to get some (New, not people selling their gear) business for a competitor is A FF  under $1800 (this one says $1.5k, but that remains to be seen).

Besides, I hear the 6D is going to be 56megapixels and priced under the current 5DmkII.  ::)  People should probably start selling their gear now ;)

Woohoo, I've always wanted to play Super Metroid on my camera.

Oh, wait, that's 16 bit graphics  :o

EOS Bodies / Re: I love Primes.

I loved the shots I got from the 200mm with a monopod this summer but my son doesn't stand still long enough to bring a lot of equip to places like this though. 

The jellies in the dark was a bit of a challenge.  I'm not a fan of cranking the iso too high.

Outside wasn't a big deal since it was really bright so I could move to a faster shutter speed.

Shouldn't the options be:
I love primes
I love (a) prime
I have no idea what a prime is   ;D

Took the 5DmkII out this weekend with the 200mm 2.8 and my 85mm 1.8 to the aquarium with my family.

I hate to sound like the masses, but I really missed IS -- my hands are NOT steady, regardless of how I brace.  I really look forward to (someday) having the stabilization be done on the mount and not the lens.

I agree; there's so many GOOD cameras out there that, as long as you're trying, you can take great pictures.

Yes, but good pictures had been captured since the beginning of photography.
Yet basic novices have not.  Thanks for taking it out of context :)

"Yes, but" implies that you disagree with my post . . . so you think a new camera will make new, better pictures emerge, no?

The POS 60D stopped me from buying addional Canon cameras/lenses :(  I'm impressed with the ergonomics of my Nikon body, and the IQ of Nikon lenses :)

I'm interested in seeing how the Canon 6D and Nikon D600 compare. I have a feeling that I'll be adding a D600 and the 135mm f/2.0D DC to my inventory.

Mine burst into flames after it came out of the box.   :o

No DSLR for Photokina? It’s possible. The last time I was there, Canon was only showing off the 60D. A solid camera, but hardly a show stopper.
Canon has five cameras for Photokina: 1D X, 1D C, 5D III, 650D and the EOS M. Should be enough as show stopper.

I agree; there's so many GOOD cameras out there that, as long as you're trying, you can take great pictures.

My only personal complaint is that all of their "current" DSLRs should have been 'refreshed' with minor software tweaks and newer DigicV processors.

Look at apple: they replaced the iPhone4 with the 4s in about 15 months, addressing almost every complaint (that they intended to) and people were freaking out that it wasn't a totally new device.  People are expecting way too much of companies that are really delivering in a meaningful way.

We've gotten this far without this? Fine, I'll do it if no one else is gonna:

What? No IS? How could they release it without IS?  If they do that, I'm moving to Nikon.

;D

I can't take the pressure!!!!

The wife is on vacation . . . technically that means I only have ONE camera and a backup is perfectly reasonable, no?   :o

I wonder how that'll fly when she gets back with my other body :D

I don't know what the tickets say, but my sister took her 550D and 70-300 nonL to the canoe/kayaking (the flat one, not the white-water) yesterday without a problem. But then, i'd say you're more likely to get stopped with a 70-200L than the 70-300 non-L...

200mm 2.8 ftw :D

Canon General / Re: Announcements in August [CR1]

Nobody should be beating themselves up over a 16-35mm L purchase; dollars to donuts it's going to be like the EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM and be both overly expensive and drive the price of the older model up briefly after announcement.

Is the "small camera with an f/1.9 lens." the S100 replacement?

I hope not, I just bought one :D 

Small is relative as well.  A g12 is small by some people's standards.

What I want to know is, why no new calculators Canon?  ;D

It is 100% fake.

The photoshopper never focused on the current font printed on the front ring of the lens. It is Frutiger series, not Arial-like.

Font-Nerds.  There's a geek-type for everyone.

I love the internet.   ;D

This was my morning chuckle. Thanks.

EOS Bodies / Re: More Coverage of the Canon EOS M
« on: July 23, 2012, 02:55:40 PM »
So, how long before you get bored with your newest toy and feel the need for one of these in the bag neuro?

Not long at all, in a geologic time frame.  At least for now, I still don't get this whole mirrorless thing, any more than the G1 X.  Neither the G1 X nor the EOS M are 'pocketable' for me (I don't think fitting into a cargo pocket in my oversized winter coat counts).  If it can't fit in a regular pocket, I might as well bring my 1D X...

So, with global warming speeding all of that stuff up, it's any day now then :D

Wow, the G-series is bigger than I originally thought; the eos-m size would be great for a G . . . but with lens I guess people would be wondering about what is in your pocket.
