EOS Bodies / Re: Canon Looking Into a New Mount System

There will probably be an adapter of some sort to connect EF lenses to the new mount. Similar to Sony's A to E adapter right?

Anyway the speed and AF and all sounds like out of the park, awesome.

The sensor is what it is. It would be DOA for a 5D4, but it's probably OK for a 7D2 (although not ideal and I certainly feel for the one body shooters who'd use this as their main landscape cam too).

The video looks pretty punted though in terms of quality.

If you don't hit DR-limited scenes much and never shoot video it's a total home run. Grand slam even (assuming it lives up to the words).

If you were looking to it for video it's a D+.

If you wanted an action cam plus great all around aps-c sensor it's mixed, great on the one hand and stuck in 2007 on the other.

I'll preface this by saying I don't really shoot video but that said, I think it will hold it's own pretty well considering the smooth AF it appears to have from the Canon promo "Cello" and the "Making of Cello" I think will be a hit with the entry level video guys especially when coupled with the lens system Canon has.  Granted, it's not a nice as the 5d3 video, but that wasn't to be expected. Physics.  However, that short they made at 3200 ISO looked pretty darn good and the focus racking looked darn good to me.  Put that little camera with a Ninja and it's a good little set up I'm betting.

I haven't really seen the video quality of the 7d mark ii because the cello video on Canon's site doesn't allow me to change the resolution or even full screen it but if you're saying the video is worse than the 5D3 then that is pretty sad. The 5D3 is pretty S___ now for video. So if this new cam is worse, then oh wow am I laughing now.

As an owner of the 7D, the specs just doesn't seem to make you want to buy this as soon as it comes out. The way I look at it, this camera represents the top of the crop line for Canon for then next 4 years --- 2018 -2019. It has no 4k, no RAW 1080p, no wifi and no sd uhs-ii.  Now don't get me wrong, Canon makes solid products and I know the 7D Mark II will be a solid product in terms of performance and reliability, but Canon is just playing this way too safe. They are heading to fall behind the competition.

Tethered shooting is very nice and Canon had the opportunity to cut the cord with this, but no such luck, no WIFI -- wild ..I guess they still want to sell 800 WIFI add-ons which is completely bonkers to purchase. Would be nice to have some 4k in this body and maybe Im pushing it a bit, but at a minimum throw in RAW 1080p, the magic lantern guys are whipping up Magic with RAW video, does canon do anything to integrate that no! just 1080p60 with the same washed out codec is a waste of time. I am 100% team canon but man, they don't even have a high MP body, another one clocking in at 20MP.

Coming out with this camera with SD UHS-I is the clearest indicator that canon will never adopt uhs-ii until 2019 -- sorry canon 5D MarkIV guys, this is a big sign of disappointment to come. I will remain with Canon for stills, but they offer zero for video. Since video is a non event, the new focusing system as awesome as it is will not be used by me since I wont use video Long story short, I held out for years hoping the world for the 7D2, but canon played it WAY timid.  I will just go full frame with a 6D. Canon, please stop stunting you products to protect your expensive Cinema Line by churning up tired features for the bottom end. 1080p60!!!!, wow how awesome...signing off.


Great first post. Wholeheartedly agree.

And now a particular someone will come and tell us how about how Canon is #1 in sales and don't need to innovate. Pretty pathetic if you ask me.

That's his fault for buying such expensive cameras. Renting is way smarter when it comes to high end cinema cams because of how fast technology changes.

I'm interested to see how they compare to the Tamron, which is an excellent lens for the money.

I hope Canon really starts to bleed money so maybe they can start making innovative products again.

All I want is Sigma to create a killer body that can natively accept Canon mount lenses. That'd be great

maybe a 7dc with 4k and high frame rates? HAHAH Canon would never do anything like that.

jrista,

You might be able to type 100wpm, but I wish you would learn the difference between you're and your, you're always typing your when you mean you're.

LOL + 100000000

That also goes for everyone who does the same.

I'm laughing at the people saying its a new sensor. Makes no sense to have a new fabrication process and keep the same pixel count. From a marketing perspective, it is a nightmare. It is the same sensor as the 70D maybe with some software tweaks. Overall quite disappointing for five years of work.

Yeah Canon may eventually add 4k. That just shows Canon is no longer an innovator, just a  follower.

I just think it's embarrassing how Canon's top of the line crop cameras are so far behind technologically to Sony's.

Can you please list the features that make a camera like the Sony A5100 so technologically superior to a top of the line Canon crop camera.  Feel free to discuss advantages in areas like native lens selection, AF speed, frame rate, focus tracking of moving subjects, integration with a radio-controlled off-camera flash system, etc. 

If you mean sensor and not camera, please say so.  As I've said repeatedly, people don't buy bare silicon sensors to take pictures, they buy cameras.

Let me compare the 70D to the A6000.

I know I specifically mentioned the A5100 when talking about the sensor, but I was speaking generally of Sony's crop cameras compared to Canon's in terms of overall camera capability so I'll use the a6000 as my example.

The a6000 is much cheaper at $800 (actually $648 now on Amazon).
The a6000 is full metal compared to 70D being plastic.
The a6000 shoots up to 11fps compared to the 7fps on the 70D
The a6000 has a 179 focus points compared to 19 on the 70D
The a6000 shoots 60p video at full hd (note: also with better quality)
The a6000 has 100% viewfinder coverage compared to 98% on the 70D

On top of that, it has a superior sensor with more dynamic range, color sensitivity, and tonal range.

Sure Canon sells more, but it's probably due to the fact that Canon has better brand awareness with consumers.

Edit: Let me also add, I'm not saying Canon's cameras are terrible. In fact, they're quite capable of getting good results. It's just that Canon no longer seems to care about having the best image quality (at least sub $6k) and being on the cutting edge in terms of features and sensor, and to me it's disappointing, regardless of sales figures, that other companies can offer overall better sensors AND better cameras, at a cheaper price.

If you want to measure "better" by sales figures, go ahead but I'm just talking about my subjective views of "better."

EOS Bodies / Re: Update on the EOS 7D Mark II Spec List
« on: August 24, 2014, 03:45:59 PM »
There is a third possibility...

To do 4K right requires 4 times the computing power as 2K video. That makes a lot of heat and drains batteries fast... and there is a real possibility that the problems with dissipating the heat make it impractical in a DSLR body unless you add in heatsinks, and that is a negative to all those using it for stills. Obviously, a 1D-C has the thermal mass, battery capacity, and radiative surface to handle this, but does a smaller body?

Does the Panasonic GH4 not do 4K right?  It certainly doesn't have a large thermal mass or space for big heat sinks inside. 
GH4 has internal 4k although it is 8 bit 4:2:0.

http://nofilmschool.com/2014/08/dynamic-range-new-550-sony-a5100/

But the fact that a $500 sony has more DR than a potentially $2000+ Canon is embarrassing. Again, perhaps it won't make a dent in Canon's sales right now but if I was an executive at Canon, I wouldn't be satisfied with just good enough sales. I would want to be on the cutting edge of technology and not just sit on my ass. Seeing the competitors would have embarrassed me and motivated me to do better.


EDIT: Can the mods start deleting posts that are only about the stupid bickering done here by aged men? It's just sad.

Same sensor.

No wifi or gps

No touch screen

No 4k video or any notable improvements in video

This camera could've come out in 2008.

What a terrible disappointment and further evidence of Canon's incompetence and lack of vision. I hope they go bankrupt if all of this is true.
