Canon, do you have "entry-level" version?   ;D
Yes Canon has many entry level monitors ... they are on the back of every Canon digital camera ;)

I was looking at who started this popular thread and found that it was 1982chris911 who hasn't been active for over 2 years ... wonder if he knows this thread has become so popular that it is running on over 200 pages ... thanks to all the contributors.

Nikon > Canon for DR.

Now consider that 600LII will last several camera bodies. Will Nikon still be leading two or three generations down?
Good one

I like third party producer for their different lenses.
And I hope, it will be a good one.
If so, and I am not in a hurry, I wait for comparision between this and the newer version of the 100-400L.
Ah, good times.....

Who is this product for?
There are lots of production houses and ad agencies that use monitors like this.

Dear Canon.
You are totally stupid. You do not know how to run a company. You do not do any research on product needs and costings. You just make products that CR members do not like.

You do not bother about the post production houses who can afford and need 4k resolution monitors for their Digital Intermediate coloring work or to check their high end compositing/graphics work.

Stupid stupid stupid.

;D ;D ;D I am afraid that some people here, might take you seriously ;D  ;D ;D

I cannot believe the dumb a55 comments about this monitor's price ... this monitor is not for the vast majority of hobbyist photographers or even most of the professional photographers ... there are lots of production houses, ad agencies and similar companies that need these kind of monitors ... Canon knows more about making money than you ... that's why you are just a consumer and Canon is a profit making company ... Canon does not have to make products only for the "regular" consumer market.
For all those who are questioning why Canon made this "expensive" monitor instead of a full frame mirror less or retro style camera here is some news - Canon does not make products to lose money just because a few blokes are cribbing about it on CR ... read this:

"I received some unofficial information from different retailers and based on the number of pre-orders, it seems that the demand for the Df is not even close to the demand for the Nikon D800 when it was officially announced. The Df is currently not even in the top 20 best selling DSLRs on Amazon (D610 is on #14). I am still questioning Nikon's strategy since they first cut their forecast three months ago because of poor mirrorless sales in US and Europe. At that time Nikon said that they will concentrate on new entry level DSLR cameras. Three months later Nikon introduces the high-end $3,000 Df camera, which was perceived as a great but overprices product. Few days after the Df announcement, Nikon cut their sales forecast for high-end cameras..."

The Sony FF mirrorless cameras aren't "disappearing off the shelves" either.

Gotta love that old film SLR styling straight out of the early 1980's.  To complete the package, you just need a groovy mullet haircut and a sweet ride like an early 80's Mazda 626...

Unlike the girly looking "groovy mullet haircut" or the "early 80's Mazda 626", the Nikon DF is beefy and manly.

Very interesting development from Tamron ... if it is equal to or better than the Sigma 150-500 OS, I'll get this new Big Tammy ... I like how the 3rd party lens manufacturers are pushing the limits, its good for people like me who are not willing or cannot spend money on big prime lenses like 500mm, 600mm etc ... the rumored $1500 price tag sound pretty good, if that's the US price, I'm pretty sure I can get it for $200 less in Hong kong or Japan.

Where is Terje the one post wonder? ... I'm betting that Terje is "he who must not be named" of this forum ;D

If I did take that bet, the only question left would be, "How much do I owe you?"
;D ;D ;D
;D ;D ;D ;D ... but its amazing that people like Terje specifically target a member with their very first post ... I mean do people like Treje think we are that dumb that we don't even know that "------" is same as " -----"?


Canon has Ron Howard, Nikon has.......Ashton Kutcher.  :P

Even Ashton dumped Nikon ... he is now "Product Engineer" for Lenovo ::)
Ashton Beta Tests Lenovo Yoga Tablet Small | Large

Is it just me or does anyone else also thinks that we've entered a vicious circle here?
+1 ... but all these DR / Canon vs Nikon vs Sony posts are pretty much the same old same old ... but I still cannot resist participating sometimes ;D

Kids also swallow memory cards, coins, pins, clips, magnets in mobile phone covers/purses/wallets/camera bags/laptop bags etc and get serious problems, yet knowledgable photogrpahers, who work with the public, still carry/use them ... I do not think the two little magnets in the magmod will cause any serious problems to the public.

The problem with kids swallowing super strong magnets is real.  But it was mostly the Bucky Balls that caused most of the trouble.  Read this... http://www.cnn.com/2012/11/02/tech/web/apparently-this-matters-buckyballs/

The problem with kids swallowing almost anything is real too. Batteries, in particular

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Lee 4x4 Big Stopper filter in stock

HOLY MOTHER OF GOD! I FREAKING FINALLY GOT ONE ... but not without a great deal of persistence on my part. I received an email about 15 hours ago saying the LEE Big Stopper is now in stock (see the screen shot of the email below), so I jumped at the opportunity and placed the order ... as luck would have it, the online B&H store would not allow me to place the order with all sorts of crazy messages (eg. "yours is a PO Box address we cannot ship it" then  "this transaction not authorized" or "conct your credit card company" blah blah blah for the same credit card I've been using at B&H for the last 4 years for purchases worth over $24000) ... this went on for over 15 hours ... so I finally went on B&H LIVE chat as soon as they it was available ... and the B&H rep told me that he could not help on live chat due to their web and gave me B&H telephone number to call ... so I called and spoke to another salesman who went through the order and told me that three is only 1 left in stock ... I said GIVE IT TO ME NOW and he places the order ... me VERY VERY VERY HAPPY, especially since I've been waiting for it for YEARS.
I am SOOOOOOOO freaking excited for having successfully purchased this little piece ... I think it has more to do with years of bi-mothly email notices from B&H saying that "we regret to inform you that the item remains "out-of-stock".
Sorry to all those who tried to buy it after I bought the last one.
