I actually like the white. I bought the EOS M in white when it went on sale.That looks like the color of ur!ne dried up on a wall
Now if you want to see a really ugly color for a DSLR and lenses, check out this custom painted Nikon setup.
.OK lets deduct those 500 EOS-M cameras, that is still about 4 million interchangeable lens cameras Canon sold in the last 6 months this yearPS: In comparison, Canon sold about 4 million and Nikon about 3.2 million interchangeable lens cameras in 6 months this year.
Does this number include all the EOS-M cameras they gave away?
I only have the RX100, can't compare.Thanks
It is an uncomplicated, small companion with a very good IQ.
So if I leave my 5d or 1d at home, it feels good to have this small cam.
Video: hm. Very good quality, IF the AF doesnt pump. I use it so rarely, but I know you can manual focus it.
Small, stealthy, I live mine.
BTW: the minimal increased IQ of the v2 doesnt compensate its higher weight.
I am glad that I am not tempted to replace mine!
I agree ... but in the case of Sony, there was no choice but to innovate, as they are a loss making company (due to poor product support) ... I would be happy to buy the Sony FF mirrorless camera if I know for certain that they will continue with this product without discarding it (and its customers) down the line ... first they said in Camera Stabilization is what they stand for, then they ditch it for this FF mirrorless without in-camera-stabilization, now there is no way to know for sure (given Sony's past) that they will not put in-camera-stabilization in a future model (screwing the early adopters) or continue on to make more image stabilized lenses. I want Sony to succeed and I thy they can, if they don't ditch their customers and provide sustained customer support. At the moment I am not really convinced by the FE lenses (except for the tiniest one), all those lenses look big for a camera of this size, especially the white one. If Sony succeeds in this, it will be good for the industry and we get to benefit from increased competition.The BIG diff here is Sony brought 35mm sensor into tiny body at reasonable prices.
True, but the OM-D E-M5 is part of an existing ecosystem of small, high quality lenses designed to match up with that small body. A FF sensor in a tiny body with a big lens means the tiny body is at best no real benefit, and more often a hinderance when handling the combination, basically the same as sticking an EOS M behind a 24-70/2.8 or 70-200 lens.
The appeal of the a7R to Canon shooters is that it works with their existing lenses, and provides a higher resolution sensor with better low ISO DR than any current Canon body. The appeal of the a7R to Nikon shooters is…not much, really. The appeal of the a7R to Sony shooters may be substantial…I bet many of the 350 of them are profoundly interested!
LOL...It's hard for people to step out their comfort zone. Regardless what might happen to Sony FF mirrorless cameras in the future, I admired them for bringing wonderful consumer high-end cameras to the market (RX100 II, RX1, and now A7).
Okay, I'll ask:Cameras that used film needed black bodies to better protect the sensitized film, against stray light Since pretty much all the pros were using black colored bodies, black became synonymous with "professional" .... This just continued on to the digital world ... also, black generally is considered "professional" even in other fields e.g. wearing a black suit is generally considered "serious and professional" ... but I don't think any technical aspect stops manufacturers from producing colored DSLR's, other than the fact that most people will not opt for colored DSLRs ... I know I would never buy a white, pink, green etc DSLR bodies ... so I suppose it is just a marketing decision now.
Why are cameras black, anyhow?
it might look cool hanging over my shoulder to match my white hat, tie, belt, spats and shoes while I dance Gangnam Style.Ha ha ha ha
I always wondered about that name coz, I have many Japanese colleagues in my office and my immediate boss is Japanese (so were my 2 previous bosses before him) but none of them seem the kind who like such mushy/girly names .... but do the Japanese, in Japan, prefer "Kiss X" whatever instead of say 700D or 100D etc? (for that matter I don't get why the american versions are called "t5i" "sl1" etc (those names also sound a bi weird), I mean they have 5D, 7D, 70D etc and then suddenly the entry level DSLR's are named with strange robotic sounding names ... what's up with that!"Kiss X7", sounds and looks a bit too kinky, for my taste.
Unfortunately, as I live in Japan I had to buy a Kiss X4 as my first DSLR. I always referred to it as a T2i or 550D. Eventually had to man up and get a 7D!
I've never been one for taping a camera up but if I were to start it would be to hide that ridiculous name.
The appeal of the a7R to Sony shooters may be substantial…I bet many of the 350 of them are profoundly interested!
By Sony: “the pre-ordered quantities are almost 200% bigger than expected"On that site, a member raised an interesting point ... which I agree with and it is one of the reasons why I am apprehensive about getting any Sony gear:
Ok...let see more prime lenses please
Oh God! NO! ... can't image holding a chocolate colored camera, let alone matching leness ... but I can understand if some people like the red or even the chocolate colored cameras ... but what's up with the hideous neither silver nor steel colored cameraHideous (except for the black one)
You're only saying that beacuse they don't come with matching lenses…
Hideous (except for the black one) ... personally I think the model names "100D", "700D" etc look a lot more elegant then the american and japanese name SL i/kiss x or t5i etc ... those letters and fonts make the camera look a little too pedestrian.Next thing you know, Canon will be offering their rebels in every colour like they did their P&S line in order to garner more sales.
Actually, you're a bit late to the party…
While I may not agree with this camera being pretty, I do agree that a 22mm pancake to go with the 40mm would be awesome.A 22mm pancake lens should only make her prettier. 40mm + 22mm pancakes = yummy!Yes, I totally agree with that. Would be perfect.
