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  ;)

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

Hey, Guys!

Come on, please!
Please do not bash each other! There is no need of to do this.
Objective arguments are better than bashing each other for his opinion.

There are many different opinions, many "truth". Read 5 photomagazines and you read 5 different test results.
(Example: In a lot of German magazines the D800/D810 is superior in IQ than the 5D3). If someone writes an personal message to me, I can copy the test results.)

But please be tolerant to other opinions. Fanatism has many different faces. There is to much - fatal - intolerance in the world.

Thank you

Yes Sir, the D810 is has an better image quality and dynamic range than the 5DIII. But, as you can read in many postings on this forum, an optical system is more than just the picture sensor. The whole system has to work perfectly together to help you to get an - technically seen - good picture.

In my family, you can find the D810, D800 (both my husband), 5DIII (my son), 6D &7 D (myself), and A7r (my daughter).
And each camera has its benefits. My daughter needs a light camera with an good image quality (like my husband does - but he owns several Nikon lenses). My son and I prefer to shoot birds, planes and animals, so we stayed with Canon).
The 5DIII is an all-in-one package. The image quality is not as good as the Sony´s and Nikon´s, but its autofocus system is superior. The D810 has an superior image quality, bit the autofocus system lacks of speed, if you shoot moving objects.

I think, each camera has its own field of application. Sometime you can not directly compare them betweeen.

I it true, that Canon should get better in resolution and dynamic range, but Nikon should hurry up to get an fast autofocus system. (This is my opinion).

By the way: My husband, who stayed at the soccer WM told me, that there were several modified cameras "in the field". With bulky housings, others with an odd combination of cameras and lenses or leneses that were not printed with their specifications). So you can be sure Canon is working on succesors of the 1Dx and 5DIII.

Canon General / Re: A Rundown of EOS 7D Mark II Information
« on: August 18, 2014, 10:15:02 AM »
Information from Japanese Canon fan girls, who are working @Canon:

Information about the successor of the 7D and the 5DIII are under total NDA. And total means total. There is just an small circle of engeneers and managers who know all of these Cameras. Others are just working on fragments of this Cameras to avoid leaks. If anyone says, he knows details on these products, he is not telling the truth.
In earlier times print jobs for tranportation and manuals were given to the printeries weeks before announcement. This time, there ist still just printing time reservated. No files have been sent to them (status from 08/12).

Canon is still thinking that they do not have to produce the best and most innovative products in the low and mid price segments. Sales figures show that the market analysts are right. Canon is still the best power seller on the market. And the analysts know that in future time, the market wil not grow and other brands are coming in. Sony will be very active, maybe an 5DIII and 1DX mirrorless competitor is coming in the near future.
The slow reaction on the D7100 and the still "no reaction" on the excellent D800/810 is well calculated. No need to hurry, Canon products are still sold well. There are not many persons switching to Nikon, because the majority of Canonians will not be able to spend a lot of money on new expensive lenses. The average Canon customer will be satisfied by new Canon products, even if other brands will produce superior products.

And the rumored prices of the 7D successor are just rumors. Some Canon fans in Japan think that there will be an hefty price increase on Canon products on coming products. Analysts say, that customers are willed to pay the increase. The increasing number of tests and scores, where Canon products are often just a few points /percents better than e.g. third party lenses, will prompt the average (and scores fixed) Canon fan to buy this "bettert product".
If you can see that in their pictures? I do not know.

This sounds like a Canon user's worst conspiracy theory nightmare---and I doubt it's true.  Why have such an ironclad NDA if the product isn't pushing boundaries? In addition, if Canon was just planning to "keep pushing inferior product because the cattle will keep buying it," why develop new technologies like DPAF, that have no real equivalent in other companies?  If it was true, the 70D would have had a conventional sensor--probably based on the existing 18MP sensors that have been the buttered bread of the Rebel line for the last 5 years!  Like most myths, this takes a certain element of truth--Canon has milked the same sensor tech with moderate improvements for the Rebel line for 5 years--and extends it past the breaking point.  I don't think the 7D2 will be a conservative design--it's true we don't know for sure what it will be yet, but I think it unlikely it will be a "warmed over" 70D.  And if it is, it will not succeed, especially if it's priced north of $2,000. 

Another salient point, the camera must be a LONG way out from delivery if they haven't already started printing brochures, manuals and boxes!  That material doesn't just spring into being in the many thousands of copies needed overnight!

My (extinct Canadian) two cents worth anyway! 

Note, I'm not trashing you Daniela--I just don't think the source of this rumour is reliable.  ;)

Well, as I wrote some postings before, Japanese Canon Fangirls do not know it either. But many of them think that this content could be true.
On the other hand, maybe, they just raise the pressure on Canon. The Japanese are not thinking like we do. Japan is another world, everybody who has worked there will has realized that there is still much fear to "looses your face" and in many companies it is an question of honor to meet the feud glove.

Canon is doing a lot of research, more than other companies. But there is an strict plan, which fundamental improvement or invention is put into which class of camera or lens. And most of them are for the upper segment. In my opinion further research and development on the 70Ds AF system will be built in > 5DIV Cameras, when it will work perfectly. My 70D produces - in my personal feeling - as many unsharp pictures as my old 7D. But when it will be improved, this AF will be a great feature.

@ printing job: It is a question of work preparation. If the cardboards are punched and prefabricated, the job could be done in a few weeks.
I think Canon will first deliver the Cams to professional Canon dealers, like done with the 70D. So, the mass of the Cams will be delivered a bit later

"Information about the successor of the 7D and the 5DIII are under total NDA."

Is there also a NDA on a 5DIII successor????

First news!!! The fan girl don't want to speak, but speak too much!

Everybody knows, that Caonon is working on successors of the 5DIII and 1DX.
But treat this not as an near announcement!! They just wrote, that Canon is doing the further product development under an strict NDA.

Actual Rumors in Japanese chat forums (got infos from an japanese girlfriend:

- 400.000 Yen (>2900€) (variying 300.000-450.000 Y, most rumors on 400.000)
- designed for sports photography. >10 pps, AF speed on miirrorless camera niveau, fast and accurate AF on moving objects (tracking a lot better than actual 7D)
- operationnal design and ergonomy focused on professional use
- IQ better than 7D, more ISO-range, lesser noise. But IQ/DR is not the main optimization goal ( MK4 5D will be designed as an semiprofessional goldenegglayingwoolmilksaw for an non-professional user)

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: D810!!!
« on: June 27, 2014, 06:14:11 AM »
Hey Guys, calm down please!

Everybody has his own photographical taste! Please do not be narrow-minded and fundamentalistic, there are many different opinions in this forum, and this ist good so! There is no reason to attack someone.

Back to the topic:
My husband told me via skype that he met two Japanese managers in his Brasilian hotel yesterday, who proudly photographed with the D810. They wore expensive shirts saying D810... Good advertisement for Nikon.
Maybe Mr. Dilbert is rihgt, cheaper and easier production, and earning as much money from one product as possible. Nikon learns from Canon.

But he Japanese told my husband that there are many things made better. Summed up, the D810 is quite an worthy evolution. My husband will buy one too  ::) (As he owns the D800)
