EOS Bodies / Re: Canon's Roadmap for 2013 [CR2]

Why can't we keep Nikon out of this?


How about talking about the Panasonic GH3 ??? A M4/3 camera that's gennerating a lot of interest from pros. It has a magnesium wethersealed body for less than $1,300.00 :) It has 1080/60p 50Mbps IPB and 24p 72Mbps ALL-I video (better video specs than a 5D3 :(  ).

And unlike the Canon 7D2 and the Nikon D4 the GH3 is actually available NOW. ;)

I just saw this. A GH3 used on safari http://www.naturalexposures.com/corkboard/testing-panasonics-newest-micro-four-thirds-camera-the-gh3/ Check-out the first photo, this looks like a great birder/nature camera :)

The 7DII will be cheaper than the 6D. That's for sure ...

... This message is needed to assert the premium-ness of FF; without it, it's hard to charge a (hefty) premium for FF.

The 6D is nothing but a FF Rebel (entry level camera), while the 7D is a semi-pro camera several steps removed from a Rebel. I'm sure that there are many people who want/need an APS-C camera, like birders, who will pay extra to get what they want/need.

What's happening here ??? Canon and Nikon are discounting their eagerly awaited and recently announced Low Cost Full Frame cameras. Did both Canon and Nikon misread the market ??? We'll know in a few months ...

Adorama is selling the Canon 6D for $1,899.00, but you have to click the buy button to see the discounted price. Camera companies  often have a lowest advertised price policy that stores get around by using the button click to show the real sales price.

Canon is ok with a lot of bashing if there's a lot of buying at the same time ;-p

The problem is that some of the 60D bashers up-graded to the Nikon D7000 :( The question is will the EOS 70D be more of the same-old-same-old :( and cause more Canon users to become Nikon users :(

The POS 60D was an incremental step-back :(  A lackluster camera, that looked even more lackluster with the imediate introducrion of the Nikon D7000.

I hope the 70D isn't another POS ... but I doubt it :(

The Canon Cine lenses are not targeted at Rebel owners shooting cute-cat videos to post to YouTube. Or C100 owners. The target audience is professional C300 and C500 users shooting high-end well paid work!

A Canon lens has a different look than a Cooke lens which has a different look than a Zeiss lens. Always use the right tool for the job! So renting not owning expensive Cine Lenses makes sence.

First company to release affordable mirrorless FF, will eat Canon's lunch for sure.

Sony is halfway there with their RX1. All that is missing now is a model with interchangable lens system.

They won't need to FullFrame to eat Canon's lunch. DPReview did a reader pole, and named the Olympus OM-D E-M5 as the camera of the year http://www.dpreview.com/news/2013/01/01/best-camera-of-2012-results

The Olympus E-PM2 has the same sensor and the fast-focus of the OM-D E-M5, while costing significantly less than the Canon EOS M.

Um, that's why there are multiple models being discussed as potential announcements this year.

Yes, but all the complaing centers on the alledged specs of the 70D :) the lowest cost DSLR being discussed :) not the 7D or 1DSx ;)

Will the EOS M2 have useful features ??? Or will it be more of the same-old same-old from Canon :(

Canon worries about canniblization, but someone else will eat their lunch if they are not careful.

Not everyone wants/needs high frames per second. When was the last time you shot a portrait at 10 FPS ??? When was the last time that you hot landscape at 10 FPS ??? When was the last time you shot table-top at 10 FPS ??? When was the last time you shot your vacation at 10 FPS ??

One of the things I've come to like on my Sony NEX-5n is touch screen focusing. An incredibly handy feature I'd like to see on the 70D.

Now that Canon is in Medium Format territory, will they also make this a Four-Shot camera ??? Just think how awsome 157.2 megapixel moirĂ© free images would look  :)

Here's the link to the Hasselblad HD4-50MS four-shot  http://www.hasselbladusa.com/products/h-system/h4d-50ms.aspx

Compact cameras are dying. But all camera companies, not just Canon, don't seem to beleive it. Sales, for everyone, have taken hugh hits in the last year. But everyone keeps anouncing more compact cameras that don't/won't sell. Meh!!

Large companies tend to live in the past, i.e. we always sold a lot of P&S cameras and we always will. Thinking like that is what almost destroyed Kodak. Thinking like this is also the reason for the lackluster EOS M -- people really want P&S cameras or DSLRs, mirroeless is just a passing fad. Meh!!

EOS-M / Re: EOS-M With Viewfinder Coming Late 2013? [CR]
« on: December 04, 2012, 11:47:23 AM »

What are they waiting for? I DO NOT wish to mount my EF 24-70 or 70-200 on that tiny thing - what's is the point buying mirrorless ???

The point of small/light weight mirrorless cameras is that they are small and leight weight. Always use the right tool for the job. The EOS-M is not the right tool for big/bulky/heavy zoomz, but it could be the right tool for small/non-bulky/light weight primes.

The next model will indeed have an electronic viewfinder, something Canon omitted from the current EOS-M apparently because their EVF technology was not ready for prime time.

The focusing technology wasn't ready for prime time, but Canon didn't seem to care :(

Looking for a retro EOS-M? Not happening according to the story, the design of the next EOS-M will be in the same style as the current model.

The one thing Canon got right is the styling :) The world doesn't need another effing retro camera.

EOS Bodies / The Camera Store's Canon EOS M Hands-On Field Test
« on: November 26, 2012, 02:55:27 PM »
This is an unusual test for The Camera Store, because it isn't a Canon love fest.

I held a Canon EOS-M last Saterday. The ergonomics are not as good as a Sony NEX-5, but they are livable. I'd love to have a mirrorless home for my EF 85mm f/1.8, but not at this price, and not with outdated sensor technology.
