EOS Bodies / Re: High Megapixel Camera Coming in 2015 [CR3]

I'm guessing here, but I think when he claims that focus has no bearing on image quality he is referring to the parameters that are not under user control. User can not remove noise or add DR to a sensor, but a user can change the focus. Just a guess.

The user CAN remove noise (lower ISO, ETTR, processing, stacking) and add DR (lower ISO, ETTR, stacking, HDR).

I guess all of that applies when the user is taking a picture of a galloping unicorn on a rainbow. Pitty that most of the real world situation are not as easily corrected.

Focus has no bearing on the image quality -

Here's a low ISO shot with a highly-rated 70-200/2.8 lens on a camera with close to 14 stops of DR.  By your criteria, it has excellent IQ.



Your criteria are just plain asinine.

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon EOS Rebel 750D Spec List [CR1]
« on: January 21, 2015, 05:49:06 PM »
The big differentiator between 7DII and this new camera will be (beside the AF) the FPS and the size of the buffer. The current Rebel's buffer is speced at 3 raw frames, the reality it is just 2 raw frames. The 7DII buffer is 31 raw. A big difference.

Not quite. I have the T4i and I get 6 RAW shots in my buffer before the fps speed is affected. Still nowhere near the 7DII, but is not 2 RAW frames. Let's be fair.

Sorry, I meant RAW+JPEG, the spec is 3, but mine T4i only does 2 before pausing (does not matter if it is a class 10 or U 1 card). If yours does more let me know.

EOS Bodies - For Video / Re: Canon EOS-1D C Coming Down in Price Again?
« on: January 21, 2015, 08:04:10 AM »
You raise a good point, my friend. Indeed, I agree most ppl cannot "see" the difference, but there are some customers who will comment that the motion looks "off" and can't describe it. ;) It mostly happens when there are elements of water (fountain, water splash) where the droplets look too sharp. I'm not saying it's a bad thing since different situations call for different looks, I'm just saying that shooting video at high shutter speeds for the sake of photo is kinda doing things backwards. If it works for you, I can respect that. :)

In cases of to sharp objects the solution would be for the PP software to blur them, that is easer then to go the other way.

I don't see them dropping this below $8k. They'll probably set it there and think that it'll be good competition for the FS7. I absolutely LOVE the 1Dc, but the only way I would ever consider buying is if the price dropped in half, but that's almost guaranteed not to happen since the 1Dx is still sitting at $6,800.00.

Canon made a really big goof with their pricing systems, and now they're paying for it.

Canon is not paying for it, it's the customers that are buying it are paying for it  :)

Lenses / Re: New Rebel & EF 11-24 f/4L USM Coming Shortly
« on: January 16, 2015, 01:13:45 PM »

I'll definitely take a good look at the new lens, it would be unbeatable for small bathrooms, walk-in closets and similar small spaces that I often have to photograph.

For taking pictures of small rooms would a APS-C camera and the Rokinon 8mm not be a cheaper solution?
Unless you have to print large the small rooms.

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Sony closing down?
« on: January 16, 2015, 12:16:02 AM »

It's not hard for me to envision a future with no local retail, except Big Box stores (Costco, Sam's Club) and Online Super Stores (like Amazon). A place without B&H and Adorama, because the camera companies sell direct to consumers online.

Sam's Club was closed down in Canada in 2009

EOS Bodies / Re: NEW CAMERA - EOS 80D?
« on: January 12, 2015, 03:24:31 PM »
As I pointed out before, this is going to be a slightly modified version of the 70D with compatibility for the CS100 built in, since the current 70D doesn't have that function.

No, it is a new Rebel.

Go to the Camera Size website: http://camerasize.com/compare/#533,469 and look at the backs of the 70D and T5 (or T5i).
The camera in the video looks almost identical to 70D and not like a Rebel.

sorry guys im from canon germany and have to tell you that is just a prototype with NFC.
it´s basically a mockup not a real camera.

or pick up a 70D, feel how your thumb, from base to tip, fits the body of the camera, look at these pictures and notice there's around 1cm of camera missing from the grip side, the buttons don't sit right and the ergonomics don't make sense when someone tries to tell you you're looking at a picture of a new XXD series camera...

Again, I've seen no reason to believe anyone claiming it's "almost identical to the 70D" has actually handled a 70D nor a 60D. This is simply not a XXD calibre camera...

The 70D is 6mm wider than the 5Ti, not 1cm. You wouldn't be able to tell the difference on a picture set at an angle. Remodeling the outer case does not mean that it is going to be the same size, particularly when you consider that two years on we would expect to see a certain level of miniaturization of internal components happening.

And it is plainly clear that the button setup is identical to the 70D, with one button and a switch apparently removed (they could be relocated somewhere else on the body, or just removed because they were not considered that important). Plus, it has the top LCD which the TXi series don't have. It looks more like a 70D than a T5i.

This camera is going to have the sensor and autofocus abilities of the 70D, but will include a single Digic 6 processor. It will sit slightly under the 7D2 in capabilities, and a lot under in terms of build quality - so it will be a consumer version of the 7D2. At that point the 70D will essentially be obsolete since it will be the same camera with a slightly more advanced processor. The outside of the camera has undergone some minor changes, but it is basically the same controls as the 70D.

And it will be called 71D  ;)

It would make sense for Canon to have a Rebel with the same control layout as the xxD and xD line. It would be easier for people who start with the Rebel to move up without relearning the controls.

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Yongnuo 35mm f/2 Canon Clone on the Way

Students win!

This is short-sighted thinking. No one wins when primary design work is stolen (although in this case, as pointed out earlier, Canon's patents may have already expired). Without a company--Canon, Apple, [insert innovative company here]--being able to reap the rewards of their labor, investment and risk in R&D, they will have no incentive to develop better products. The patent system, though flawed, was created for a reason. It rewards innovation by giving the innovator a protected and relatively short period of time to establish their brand/product before everyone else is free to copy their design. If the design is good, and people are willing to buy it at the price offered, everyone benefits.

We vote with our dollars. I prefer mine to finance innovation and reward the risk takers.

So basically you are saying that without competition Canon will produce innovating products at a good price.

How is that working out? Nobody is better then Canon in any areas?

Also, didn't Canon start by coping German camera manufactures products?

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon Confirms Development of High Megapixel Camera
« on: January 01, 2015, 04:44:22 PM »
1/ It is a logical estimation guessed at from some numbers we do know. For instance EF lens sales 100,000,000, number of people that buy a DSLR and don't buy a lens outside the kit lens/es, 97%. That means the total number of all DSLR sales of all EOS cameras ever that goes to pros, semi pros and keen amateurs (the groups that almost certainly would get another lens) is around 3,000,000. If you thought every single one of those pros, semi pros and amateurs was to buy a 52MP camera (and we know they won't) and only they had no choice but that one 52MP camera, since 1987 they would only have sold 3,000,000, or around 100,000 a year. Give a camera a marketing shelf life of 5 years puts sales at an absolute maximum of 500,000 units if every single person who bought a seperate EF lens was to buy one.

The 100,000,000 number is for Canon EF lenses, it ignores all other EF lenses. I have no idea if that number is significant.

There are few ebay sellers that have the YN600EX-RT for $148 with free shipping right now.
