EOS Bodies / Re: DSLR & Lens Coming on January 15, 2013? [CR1]
« on: January 13, 2013, 01:19:20 PM »

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.

Lenses / Re: New EF-S Lenses Are Coming [CR2]
« on: November 24, 2012, 10:19:16 AM »

... the 7D body is actually heavier than the 5DII and only a bit lighter then the 5DIII, and not much smaller physically either. Being able to use smaller lenses for the same equivalent reach on the crop body (compared to FF) is another matter of course.

This is why I don't own a 7D, and have no interest in a 7D2. For me, lighter/smaller is very important, so I'll wait for the 70D (or maybe a Nikon D7200).

... I wouldn't mind seeing a high-resolution APS-H sensor ...

EOS Bodies / Re: February & March are Announcement Months for Canon [CR2]
« on: November 16, 2012, 11:26:43 PM »

 ... Still no match for a half-way decent OVF or else so many of the RED owners wouldn't have demanded an OVF (http://www.reduser.net/forum/showthread.php?34814-More-news&p=474710&viewfull=1#post474710), which as far as I know, they still have yet to deliver.

Traditionally through the lens viewing, for motion picture cameras, has benn provided by a spinning mirror, it's what many motion picture camera operators are used to and like. The spinning mirroe is both the shutter, and also uses the mirror to reflect light to the ground glass of the optical view finder. Sorta like the flaping mirror of a DSLR. Because of operator preference the Arri D20 and D21 used this style of view finder. The present Arri Alexa range is made-up of 5 models, four with EVFs and the Alexa Studio with an optical view finder.

Operators with a broadcast back ground seem to have no problem with EVFs.
