EOS Bodies / Re: Canon EOS 100D Detailed Specs Appear
« on: March 18, 2013, 05:46:01 AM »
Actually, I think this camera sounds great! 13.1 ounces is nothing!
If you do NOT own any of the 18 MP cameras previously, this will be on the short list.
It is basically a smaller 650D without flipscreen (which I hate anyway).
If they throw in a thumbwheel and some other ergonomic bonuses, maybe WiFi and GPS, this could still be a kickass camera. pair it with a small prime like the 40/2.8 and it will be the same weight as a G1X (and roughly the same size too!)

You guys should stop bashing it, this thing will SELL! (when price drops to 600$, so G1X and this cost the same)

Olympus tough-series for when the Canons can't take it (as in waterslides etc.). Otherwise I am faithful to Canon... :)

OK I just read on another blog that this new camera will be a Rebel...so this is NOT a new line of camera for Canon, which has been reported widely on the web. This camera will be in the Rebel line of cameras.
That should calm down a lot of the speculation, and confusion.

Well, I guess it could be the 1200D, if they downsize it. The reason for speculation is the "new line" rumor.

Smaller than a Rebel?  We talking Kiddie Cams?  I'm interested what a smaller DSLR looks like and not be a point/shoot or 4/3 camera....

Something like this? (excuse the lousy photoshopping :) )

It can't be a DSLR, then. Not enough room for a mirror.
Ehm, why not? There is still space between the mount and the sensor, yes? And we have no idea if they will use Sony setup with static semitransparent mirror, or some ingenious technical solution to move the mirror out of the way, or something else.

But, I admit that I would think a mirrorless version of this WOULD make more sense. :) Basically a SX50 sized camera with EF-M mount and EVF.

Yes, I DO mean native eos-M mount. Just to get the size down.

If it is much smaller than a Rebel then how will you hold it?

Ehm, how do you hold a g15? :)

AHA! I knew this was coming. Basically a 1100D optimized (native) for EOS-M with EVF. Bring it!

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon EOS 7D Mark II Information [CR1]

Anyway, the integrated grip isn't my thing anyway, and here I have to wonder if its a name game. If indeed the 70D is going upmarket, could that take over where the current 7D sits? Only then could a 1D level and spec body become more possible for a 7D successor. But still, I find calling that a 7D mk2 tough to swallow. I think that would deserve a new model number. 2D, 3D, 4D are still available, as are variations of the 1D name. I don't think it could be 8D or 9D since that would be positioned lower than 7D.

Assuming the rumoured announcement of the 70D is soon, the form the 70D takes will serve as guidance as to what may be offered in a 7D position, or 1D like position. My gut feeling is if the 70D leap-frog the 7D in spec and takes its place, then the integrated grip APS-C starts to make sense. If the 70D doesn't exceed the existing 7D, then I feel the 7D mk2 will be normal bodied.

I just can't imagine something called 7D mk2 being integrated grip, but it could exist as another name.

Easy. Three characters: 7-D-X.  ;D

EOS Bodies / Re: Announcements on March 22, 2013? [CR1]

I am hoping for a 70D with:
  • Metal body like 50D
  • AFMA wide-tele
  • GPS and Wifi
  • Scroll wheel and joystick
  • 19 point AF from 7D
  • New sensor 20-24 MP
  • Digic V+
  • Fixed screen and weathersealing
  • USB 3 port
  • pop-up flash (master)
  • Form Factor slightly bigger than 60D

Like someone said, basically a 2013 version of 7D. Leaving room for a baby 1DX as 7D2. :)

Large pixels generally have high read-noise which means they tend to have a tough time in such environments.  Read the text.  They claim to have developed technologies that counteract that affect (that read noise increases with pixel size).
Hmm, ok. But in the general discussion, noise increases when pixels get smaller (at Hi-ISO). It would be kind of obvious to think that noise decreases when pixels get larger (at Hi-ISO).

(maybe those are two different sources of noise I am talking about?)

7.5, not 7.2^2.
Yeah, my bad. :) But I think the principle is the same...2.4MP on FF would have lower HI-ISO noise than 18MP...I guess... :D

71
So if I get this right, Canon is taking a full frame sensor, and ENLARGING the pixels on it 7.5 times, and then market it as the best ISO performer on the market? DUH!

So the pixel count will be 18MP / 7.5^2 = 0,3 MP on a FF?

Ehm, I might have completely misunderstood, but how is this technical progress?

Lenses / Re: Keep or sell??
« on: March 01, 2013, 05:07:32 AM »
Hehe, lot's of advice in both directions. As expected. My thinking is: can you find another use for it, if it is not used on your main camera? Like someone said, macro could be one use, use on a backup/travel/throwaway body could be another, and testing out with adapters for MFT/Nikon/Sony etc. could be a third.

If you can NOT think of another use for it, and you KNOW it will not be used, give it as a present to someone you like with a Canon body. It will help their photography a lot. Saves you the hassle of selling it too... :)

Lenses / Re: Cheap Canon 300mm or 400mm
« on: March 01, 2013, 04:59:59 AM »
I hope Sigma or Canon will make a new lens category at some point.  Such as an f/3.5 300, an f/5 400, or a zoom with limited range but fast aperture, such as a 250-450 f/5, or 200-350 f/4.5...all of which with stabilization.  It's kind of annoying that telephoto lenses go from the $1500 range, to the $3500-$13,000 range...with nothing in between.

I am thinking Tamron might step up here. They now have VC and USD capable enough for this area. A good way to differentiate themselves from Sigma/Canon would be to provide some new combinations of fast primes, like 250mm f/2.5, 350mm f/3.5, and 450mm f/4.5... They would probably end up in the space 2-5k$ (keeping my fingers crossed) :)

I think the March announcement indeed is the 70D. I also think it will be the first camera with Canons new 180 nm process at around 24 mp and single Digic 5 for modest FPS. Wifi and GPS is a given, especially if it is 60D build. I think it will get a variant of 6D AF also for good low light photos and video.

I think 7D2 will also have a new sensor with same 180 nm process, but stay at 18 mp to be the FPS/Hi-ISO monster we all want. Basically a crop 1DX.

The reason for this is for Canon to put out the new sensor in a lower prestige body to get feedback for final spec of 7D2 before they announce it. It also gives the 7D2 a longer time as "latest and greatest crop body", as if the higher mp XXD is release after, it would pull down 7D2 prices. But if released before, the 7D2 lower mp can be marketed as "better", and as a consequence, will not be as sensitive for the next XXD upgrade, as that will certainly have even higher mp count. :)
