EOS Bodies / Re: Canon EOS-b Images Leak & a New Kit Lens
« on: March 19, 2013, 01:25:50 PM »
does anyone have an idea why Canon released such a camera? who is this small DSLR for?

Canon and Nikon are both losing sales to Panasonic, Olympus and Sony NEX. Theses small/light mirrorless cameras are attractive to people who don't need to impress others with the size of their lens.

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon EOS 100D Detailed Specs Appear
« on: March 17, 2013, 11:26:49 PM »
How small is it ???
Canon 100D                3.6 H x 4.6 W x 2.7 D - weight 13.96 Oz
Panasonic Lumix G5  3.28 H x 4.72 W x 2.79 D - weight 13.1 Oz

Here's the comparison of th G5 amd T4i http://camerasize.com/compare/#347,333 The 100D is close to the G5 in size, so that's one small APS-C camera. The main difference is the height 3.28 vs 3.6.

yeah!!!! a diminutive, even more entry level DSLR that is a bit expensive! Wow, Canon really knows how to make people happy these days!

What makes you think that this sligghtly expensive camera will be entry level ??? They would not have mentioned slightly expensive if this camera didn't cost more thab the present Rebel line. Maybe even more expensive than the POS 60D ;)

I think the EOS M was supposed to fill that slot, but was seriously let down by its pokey AF. They get that fixed, and toss in the real EF/EF-S adapter, and I'd love it. (I still have my EOS IX ;) )

The problem is that the Canon exec specifically said "will not be mirrorless." The EOS M is a mirrorless camera. But Canon execs have lied in the past ;)

So what do you think this new small and expensive DSLR will be if it isn't an EOS IX-D ???

Maybe the Canon Rumors Guy will remember the interview and post a link to it.

There was an interview with a Canon exec that was reported, both here and elseware, about a year or so ago. He said that Canon did not have to go mirrorless to get a small camera.

Speculation then was that Canon would make a Digital EOS IX. The EOS IX was a film APS-C camera http://www.canon.com/camera-museum/camera/film/data/1996-2000/1996_eos-ix-e.html?lang=us&categ=crn&page=1996-2000 Check-it-out. A small/light camera with an EF Mount. The size and weight was 132 x 80 x 59 mm, 485 g (with battery). The Panasonic Micro 4/3 GH3 is 133 x 93 x 82 mm, 550 g (with battery). The Panasonic GH3 sells for $1.300.00 ... would I pay that for a Digital EOS IX ??? Of course I would :)  :)

BUT, this camera probably is not meant for me, meaning that, as stated by other user, people would care more for sharing in FB than ISO performance.... well, that is call entry level.

Victor

The question is who is the camera aimed at ??? The photo-sharing-crowd has already abandoned the DSLR for the the smart-phone.

The smart-phone is the Box Brownie of the digital age. For people just interested in documenting their lives (childern's lives) their is NO reason to own a camera anymore.  The shoe-box full of prints has been replaced by Social Media and a photo-gallery on their smart-phone. The camera companies (and many Very Serious Photo Enthusiasts) still don'r get-it ???

Erm, same image sensor since the 550D? Really Canon? That the best you can do? :(

That sensor was already lagging behind last gen's Sony 16mpx sensor in the Nikons' and NEXs, and now everyone's moving on to newer sensors...

As long as the Canon Faithful continue to buy last years technology why should they change ??? When sales drop there will be incentive to up-date the sensor.

... to make the rebel line even smaller and appeal to those looking to advance from the compact P&S but fearing the size of an entry DSLR. ...

UK Fashion Shooter Jonathan Posner has stepped-up from Canon's Full Frame 5D2 to the M4/3 Olympus OM-D http://jonathanposner.tumblr.com/post/40780795719/my-olympus-challenge-10 To quote Jonathan Posner "Good enough for Vogue Italia, good enough for me."

There are a lot of seasoned professionals who are tired of lugging-around un-necessarly large/heavy cameras and their large/heavy lenses.

I'd be interested in a smaller EF mount APS-C camera with an EVF. Canon really needs to introduce some EF-S primes for use with this camera. A 22mm f/1.8 (=36mm FF) would be a good start followed by a 15mm f/1.8 (=24mm FF). I already have the EF 85mm f/1.8 :)

We’re told at least one variation of the camera being developed has an integrated grip, ...

An intergrated grip is a deal-breaker for me. I need small and light, that's why I use a crop body instead of FF. I've used a 5D3, it's a great camera but too big and heavy for me -- not something I want to hold all day.

I'll wait and see what the 70D has to offer before buying. A camera is just a tool, and the best tool for me may now be a Sony a77 or a Panasonic GH3.

The sensitivity is impressive!! 0.03 lux = 0.002787091 footcandles. For those of you who know nothing of lux or footcandles, at ISO 100 a meter reading of 100 footcandles give you f/2.8 at 24 frames a second.

I don't think we'll be seeing this technology in a consumer product this year or next :)

So, will Canon actually try to compete with Nikon this time (in the $1000 range)
I doubt it, but hope springs eternal. :)

Quote
1. Price, the Nikon D7100 and D5200 are proving to be great cameras in the $1000 range (give or take a $100 or 2).  Also the Panasonic GH3 is another great camera to be had int his range.
For some people, the Panasonic GH3 will replace APS-C.

I expect this "70D" to be a 7D with wifi and a slightly lower build quality with a reduction of minor features (1/4000th shutter, 1/200th flash sync, ...
The Canon 40D had a 30 - 1/8000 sec shutter and a Flash X-Sync of 1/250 sec. Why would the NEW 70D have specs worse than a camera released in 2007 ???

This is more of general topic question, but if you the 70D does get wifi/gps, what does that actually mean? What are the features of wifi on a dslr?  ...

...  I'm sure these points have been beaten to death but just looking for some advantages of wifi on my dslr...

WiFi done right allows you to send photos to a smart phone or a connected tablet. Then the file can be sent anywhere on the 'net. Besides the social network, an editorial photographer can shoot a job (breaking news, etc) and email the photos immediately to the client. Camera to smart phone to client -- simple as that. Panasonic GH3 owners are doing it even as we speak :)

... your opinion is irrelevant. I'm a photographer for a daily newspaper and I own a 5D III.

I have shot with a 5D3. As well as Sony Broadcast cameras, starting with the Betacam SP way-back in the 1980s.

As long as smartphone cameras are permanently stuck around 28mm, I and many others that are even slightly interested in photography will continue to use compact cameras instead.  I keep a compact in the same pocket as my Galaxy S3 and never use the camera on the phone.

People are lining up to pay big-bux for the Sony RX1 with a permanently attached 28mm f/2.0 lens ;)

My walk-around camera is a .7Mpx iPod Touch 4G :)

It will never replace my DSLRs but as a light-weight, walk-around rig it has great potential. I'll be ordering the next model as soon as it's announced.


While shooting video the auto-focus of my Sony NEX-5n will keep a person in focus as they walk around a room, no problem :)

The Panasonic GH3 has better video specs than a 5D3 -- 60p (NTSC) / 50p (PAL) progressive recording
72Mbps (ALL-Intra) in MOV format ,for only $300.00 more that the rumored price of an EOS M2. Canon needs to wake up and see what the competition is delivering.
