GEEZUS I didn't even know that 1.8 on a zoom lens was possible. This is incredible. Good job Sigma.

Not even 7fps? Same sensor, no notable improvements? dual SD card slot? What a piece of crap.

Makes the Canon C line look like a pile of turd. Who in their right mind would buy a C300 or 1DC with this?

Sony is coming out with 55inch 4k TVs for $5k. Apple is also rumored to come out with a 4k set. I think prices have come down enough at this point.

But the main hurdle for many is actual 4k content and internet download speeds to handle the 4k. Until that is improved, 4k isn't going anywhere.

Another disappointment from Canon! :D

It is sad how I have money, ready to buy a new camera, but nothing to spend it on. If only the D7100  had a tilt screen I'd jump right now.

EOS Bodies / Re: diy ideas on how to protect camera from rain?
« on: April 07, 2013, 03:22:06 AM »
I have done this when in light rain. If it is pouring out it probably won't work:

Get a simple plastic bag, small, mid, or large sized bag depending on lens you want to use. Using scissors or similar create a hole in the bag on the bottom of it large enough for your lens. Be careful not to make it too big. Put camera in the bag, facing the hole. Do not poke your lens outside the bag. Use a rubber band outside the bag where the lens is so the lens and bag are close and tight. If you do it right, the camera should be completely protected and you should still be able to access the controls and use manual focus if necessary. AF works fine as well.
It works for me, make sure you keep a few extra "pre-cut" bags with you and some rubberbands as well. You can wrap a paper towel around the lens with another rubberband if you want extra protection.

Is it "Bulletproof?" The thing that Magic Bullet guys are touting.

When the canon 70d will be available?
Nobody knows for sure, but rumors say, there will be an april announcement. The 60D is on the market for 2 1/2 years (which is very long for xxD body) and its prices are at an alltime low. So it could/should come before summer.

I hope so ... and whats the price? 900 $?

Obviously, no one knows the price. I doubt it is as low as $900 though since that is probably the price of the T5i. I'm guessing $1100-$1400 body only.

EOS Bodies / Re: New Specs for 70D from Cameraegg

Interesting. This seems reasonable and a decent update. It all comes down to whether that "new sensor" is actually new and improved over the "current." Other major factors for me is AFMA and whether or not the "60" in 1920x1080 movie mode is 60p or 60i. Knowing Canon, I'm guessing the latter but it would be amazing if there was a 5 or 10 second burst mode of 60p at full HD. It really isn't hard or expensive to implement this and no doubt the Digic 6 or even the Digic 5 are capable of handling that.

Wait wait. What happened to the 70d?? Let's worry about that before we get into any other products. It seems 70D rumors just stopped.

EOS Bodies / Re: EOS 70D, DIGIC 6 & 18mp Sensors

I honestly don't care about the MP count but the actual performance of the sensor. Most likely this is the same sensor as the past 3-4 years, which is just a kick to the groin for anyone with any faith left in Canon. There is a slim chance that this is indeed a completely new sensor and just uses the same MP count but really, how likely is it Canon not change the MP count at all? Not much, I think, especially from a marketing perspective. If on the off chance, that this is a new sensor, with improvements in DR and noise, I am in but at this point, I think it is just wishful thinking.

What do you guys think?

Regarding the weather sealing issue, you guys should google "dust donut." It is a kickstarter project that is manufacturing a rubber o-ring designed to fit Canon lenses, serving as a "seal" for dust and moisture. Might be handy to order a couple for your non sealed lenses when it is available. Just make sure the lens is supported.

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon EOS Rebel T5i Leaks

So the new cameras coming in a couple days - 110D and a new T5i, possibly some powershot. Seriously what a joke. Nothing in the specs is exciting. Same old boring bodies, same obsolete sensor;

If all the rumors we hear are true about these cameras, I really hope Canon crashes and burns.

EOS Bodies / Re: 7d2 Video specification speculation

Its pretty well established that the higher frame rates heat up a sensor more.  Camera manufacturers are scrambling for fixes that reduce heating as well as solutions to dissipate the heat.

I'd expect that this will be addressed in the distant future by the time the 7D MK II comes out.   The other issue is getting a fast enough readout from the sensor without a big quality hit.

I'd expect 60 fps @ 1080 in a $2500 camera.

Why? The Panasonic GH3 has it for $1200. All Sony DSLTs have it, as well as their $700 NEX model. Canon is simply lagging and greedy and it is infuriating so see so much ignorance in Canon fans and how they blindly follow Canon's explanations.

On a related note, Canon said they are unable hdmi out on the 5D mark III due to technical limitations but now it is announced and coming in April. Open you eyes and question what you hear. Canon is lying.

Even if the 70D has the same frame rate there are plenty of ways for it to be a better camera then the rebel such as 100% viewfinder, better AF, dual card slots, top LCD, MFA, magnesium body, better high/low ISO noise, etc.

Not really. From a marketing stand point, that is all meaningless. People looking to buy cameras will obviously compare the two models. They will see that the cheaper model has the same burst rate and the same exact sensor and will be sold. Canon would be shooting themselves in the foot. I was in Canon marketing, I would push for a new sensor and more features to differentiate the two as much as possible. The 7DII would be way above as a "mini 1DX that costs around $2.5k.
