EOS Bodies / Re: A New EOS Pro Body With 46mp Next Month? [CR1]
« on: September 19, 2014, 04:07:58 AM »
Back from Photokina. The show was interesting, third party manufacturers announced a lot of accessories that will be helpful in future. New lenses (Sigma) e.g. One think to criticice: Each second person who talks about the 7DII praises the IQ of this cam. I asked some of them, how many shots they took with this new Cam. But NO one did. They just looked at a few pictures, release in the www...  ::)
Some rumors from US and asian visitors: In the near and far next month there will be some new bodies announced. A mid priced competitor to the D810 with an much better AF system and a new sensor (no recycled one with a little bit more MP). Low light noise will be improved. And an high end body with superior features and an much higher price than the 1Dx. No details on exact improvements. But it will be an stellar successor to the 1Dx. Two Asians rumored that there will be an separation of the high end line, features like the current 1DX and another body, focussing on IQ.
And that there is an entry FF camera with an extended AF system in development, around 20MP, more AF points... maybe an 6D successor, focused on AF system, as the IQ is very good.
Other brands will release new technology too: Sony will get an big competitor in the next years. They realised that their lens line is a big weakness. New highend Sensors are "in the wild" testing, and will be released soon.  Nikon tries to pimp up the D7100.

We have been on the photokina yesterday. Maybe not the best idea to go there on the first day. But I got some interesting impressions about what to come and how big you  can advertise products with small improvements.
The evening was much more impressive, I was able to talk to product specialists.

They think that the 7DII will be the same big seller like the 7D was: Because the product got better, and there are no competitors on the market. Nikon will not bring out an D400 or an better D7100 in the near future. And the mirrorless cameras are getting better too, but the whole concept has still some weaknesses. To fix this, it will still take 2-3 years. Then the first mirrorless cameras will be able to beat current SLRs. Sony is hurrying to invent 24MP chips with the same  low light features as their current 12MPs. And they will have enough money to do so, as some companies are interested in their sensors. They rumores that Canon is not hurrying to create an ground-breaking new mirrorless cam, there are exact plans existing when Canon will repond to the threat.
I asked if the sensor is really so much better, but I just got some meaningless marketing statements, as they do not know it either. It is improved, but how much, just e few persons know. But they told me that there were a few different bodies in practical testing and the 20MP sensor had the best over all results.
Information about the 5DIV and 1DX successors are under NDA, no comments on those products. "Canon is improving their products periodically".

The shows are well organisated, but overall it is not as impressive as it was some years ago, when each brand was advertising much more new products. But it is clear that there will be an end on the product inflation.

Who will be on the show today?

Do you know, how much does it cost in Europe / Germany?

I could not find an price for European countries. I do not think that the >2000€ mentioned on British pages are the price for the rest of Europe.


Report @ Dpreview:

Nikon seems to recycle the D610 sensor....

"The D750 features a 24MP CMOS sensor with an AA filter, and although Nikon (as usual) claims that this sensor is 'newly developed' it is probably based on the same sensor that we've seen in the D610 (and Sony A7)...."

cited from:

"The D750 inherits a version of the 51-point Multi-CAM 3500FX AF system that we've seen used in the D800/E and D810 but its 'II' version is actually more sensitive - rated down to -3EV. We haven't been able to really get a feel for how much difference this makes in normal use but in theory, the D750 should offer superior AF reliability in poor light compared to the D810 and D4S, which is quite something (and which might prompt more than a few D800 owners to 'upgrade' to the D750). "
cited from:

The sensor on the D610 is very good. My husbands "backup Camera" (I do not know why he needs one as (he has an D800 and an D810) is an very good all-in-one Camera.

I hope Canon has put -3EV in the 7DII too. That would be an good additional function to use the 7DII with an 100-400mm 4.5-5.6 and an 1.4x converter.

EOS Bodies / Re: How does the reveal of the final 7D2 specs make you feel?

My girlfrieds in Japan told me, they had no internal information about the specs. The price rumored about 2200 Dollars would be to much for this product, but the 7DII wil be sold well again, as there are no alternatives to buy if you own a lot of Canon mount lenses.

The forum writers who rumored, that the 70D sensor is used in the 7DII, could be right. There are Japanese rumors that this sensor got a little bit "uppolished" and some small changes were made on the layertechnology. I expect some more information when servicemenuess for repairing are available. Otherwise it is hard to say, if this is true or not.

But the interesting thing is, that they are looking for an 5D successor (some rumors are on an 1Dx successor too). And now they hope Canon will put more efforts in these two models.

And Canon has to do so, as Sony (who puts a lot more money in developing new sensors than any other company as they will deliver this sensor to other manufacturers too) will release an overwhelming new generation of sensors. High resolution and another for fast shooting in low light.
My fangirls wrote that the low light 7 was the first try, as Sony is working on an model that combines 24MP with an fast AF system and extraordinary low light capacities. (rumores!!) The Camera could be released in end of winter/spring 2015. New lenses will follow.

Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic (area not listed   :o )

Wonderful place!. We stayed there for our honeymoon almost 30 years ago, when the tourism was not as much as it is today

Germany, near Nürnberg.  :)
(Sorry for that "umlaut", but that is how it is written. And honestly I really hate  >:( the English spelling of that beautiful city name ;) )
;D love to see an ü here! And I love even more to see bavarian colleagues! ;) that is three of us with xps :) Aber dass es grad auch ein Franke sein muss :( ;) wenigstens ein Oberbayer auch noch ;) :D
That's Waldkraiburg near Munich, Bavaria, Germany for me! ;) Ugliest town in the world  :P
Great to see contacts all over the world! :)

Hey! Nur weil I jetzt bei di Ösis wohn, bin i schon an o a Boarä, gell!!!  :P

As four Japanese friends, my husband and I are just sitting comfortably in front of the fireplace we are discussing about  company loyalty (mit ana guaten Weisswurst, am gscheiten Weissbier und frische Brezen  ;D )
Maybe this is the reason, why no Japanese will join Canon rumor. They will never bash the company they are working for. They would praise Canon only in the highest tones

Those four scientists are very very polite. I will ask them about, why they do not join CR (they all own D4 and D810  ;) )

A few days ago, we have moved to an small town near Kufstein in the Tyrol, Austria
Ahh put another shrimp on the barbie eh?   ;D

? Sorry, my English is not good enough to understand what you mean
checked  ::)

A few days ago, we have moved to an small town near Kufstein in the Tyrol, Austria (and there are NO kangaroos ;-) ).
A new home, sweet home in the north side of the alps.

Japanese rumors: As i heard from my Japanese girlfriends, the 50MP Sony is not the highlight. The highlight is, that sony is working on an curved sensor. This sensor could possibly be an little revolution on the sensor market. The image quality of the edges and non-center areas would be dramatically better, CAs and other optical problem would be reduced. And optically this curved sensor would rise the resolution in the edge areas.
Sony - (rumored!) - is working on new lenses that could be optimized on this new sensor. The lenses would be a lot cheaper to be produced (abberation correction would be not so difficult).
Nikon is interested in this technology too.

50 MP, 16 stops of DR.  Canon must respond to that!!


Mr Neuro if you make an facebook account and find, lets say 5 million followers, Canon will listen to your whishes. But maybe in a few years the  ::) will become an   8)

My Japanese girlfriends talked about this rumor yesterday.
As one of the poster wrote: The lenses are missing. and you will ned an highend lens to meet the resolution.
But 50MP for landscape... Our big landscape picture in the living room would get a lot sharper  ;)

EOS Bodies / Re: Is Canon now two generations behind Nikon?
« on: August 29, 2014, 03:17:00 PM »
ee the next generation sensors or similiar. Although I have to admit that the Dual AF is quite a tech already.

....In my family, you can find the D810, D800 (both my husband), 5DIII (my son), 6D &7 D (myself), and A7r (my daughter).
Quite the family you know ;-)

Please explain, my English is not very good.
My husband is an Nikon fetishist, my daughter´s boyfriend works for Sony.... And MY father bought Canon. I took my first shot with an F-1, back in 1973 at an age of 9. My father gave me all his lenses and cameras, so I stayed with Canon.

Deine Familie ist etwas ungewoenlich. Das gefealt mir. :-)

You all are photographers?

Because forums like this one need people like you that have a quite close experience with different DSLR brands.

You from all users here have a broader look on different systems with different people. Especially if they are family members.

It's one thing to have a NIKON friend that you see 3-4 times a month and quite the opposite to have SONY, NIKON, CANON under the same roof.... literally.

I understand :-)))))
Not only in photography, we differ a little bit ;-). I met my husband when I nearly bashed his new Nikon F20 (I think this was the name of it) back in 1985 at an party .
My husband is using Apple computers for almost as long as I know him. I prefer an PC.
My son likes Linux as he studies infromatics and physics....

Well if you want a real world comparison, as part of our digital imaging company we've just been working with company who has had its products shot by a guy using a D4s, and I can assure you that the files from the humble 6D are substantially better. No doubt some on here will question why a D8xx wasn't being used, but that's the reality of - well, reality.

Funny how we never hear of the D600/ 610 isn't it.
The 600 was an excellent camera. My husband took a lot of shots with it, but then the stain problem appeared and he switched to the D800 as an special offer from our local camera store as Nikon did not know what to do in the frist few weeks.

Good to have another person on CR who has real world experience of the front runners in the race   :)

My husband liked the D600. This Camera was really great. I took a lot of great pics of my children and landscapes with it too.
The early handling of the stain issue was not one of Nikons greatest moments. My husband was very angry about the blaming letters he received from Nikons service center. So he was glad to get an offer to exchange the D600 for a few hundred Euros to an D800
