1/8000 shutter

On a side note, this one perplexes me. I've read some comments here where people say they want this. I can't imagine. Are they shooting on top of an iceberg at noon on a sunny day?

I think it's perfectly fine for 'some' folks to want to use a 1.2 lens for sunny portraiture

if Canon were to bring mirrorless in 6D shape and with EF mount I would not buy it. Not even Canon is so stupid to let that happen. So FF mirrorless will be with a new native short flange distance EF-X mount. With nice, powerful, ultracompact cameras and lenses for me.  8)

A few more

First one appears to be McLarens power plants from the last 2 seasons!!!!!!!!!!!

I am struggling to remember why I'm a McLaren fan and the power plant joke is awesome!! I laughed for a good while.  I think with Jenson out of the car, it is time for me to move on.  I'll be cheering for the new young Canadian for sure though.

Stay with them.. It's obvious from the photo that McLaren need all the fans they can get  ;D  It will be interesting to see how the go this year since Ron has been ousted.

I'm for a 6D Mirrorless with an EVF, but the concept that you can't stabilize a LCD based camera, and have to hold it out at arms length is completely false.

Again, for emphasis:

In fairness, no one's saying LiveView shooting doesn't work

I'm saying it's less fun, less comfortable, and (certainly in my hands) less stable.  Can you take sharp shots with it?  Absolutely, but I personally might have to goose my shutter speed a bit in that case.

But consider: why does every single FF rig these days (leaving rangefinders out) have an integral TTL OVF or liveview from the sensor (EVF) viewfinder?  It's because people prefer them, regardless of how slick liveview becomes.   

I believe that's because it's a more satisfying / immersive shooting experience that is more stable and more comfortable.  But I could certainly be wrong.  Others might find (totally speculating here) that focus peaking or DOF preview is more accurate / better appreciated with your eyes up close.

But I simply can't see Canon's first FF mirrorless offering going the first EOS M route and forcing LiveView shooting.  They might make the EVF a separate component you bolt on for size reasons (I really hope not), but I have to believe that an EVF of some sort will be available on day one.

I do think Canon faces a bit of a dilemma with the next 6DII, and will need to carefully target the feature set so that it remains appealing, but does not undermine the 5DIV too badly. Notice that I did not and won't use the term "crippled," which in my view is a ludicrous term to use for product differentiation.

This is the $64,000 question:  What gets nerfed with the 6D2?

There's a brew of perhaps five major drivers for this (guesses in parens):

  • What do enthusiasts obsess about and might pay more for / might keep the price near the initial asking for a longer period of time?  (Sensor performance sensor performance sensor performance, tilty-flippy screen come to mind)

  • What to pros insist on having on a rig their livelihood depends on?  (Two card slots, flash sync speed, AF joystick, high shutter lifespan, 1/8000 shutter, etc.)

  • What does the market always use to differentiate models and set pricing with?  (Resolution, FPS, 4K, etc.)

  • What can Canon reasonably deliver at their internal production cost targets?  (1DX2 metering = no, Touchscreen = yes, NFC = yes, etc.)

  • What has Canon already released or plan to release that might be cannibalized / undercut by the proposed new offering?  (Surely the 5D4, possibly FF mirrorless, also possibly a stripped-down budget FF SLR)

And from those drivers they make the tough calls.

Thank you, guys! It was very cloudy so the picture is a little dull. But the micro 4/3 system worked well.

As I have just posted one of my wife's shots, here is another one of hers, this time with the 100-400mm II on the 7DII, of flamingos in Cyprus, to show what a grandmother with a Canon can do.
Nice photos!

Canon General / Re: Canon Continues Marketshare Dominance in Japan

More than happy to be in minority. It's fun to see canon owners got excited on m5 technology.

With just m1 technology, canon still top 3 in mirrorless. That  draws a very clear picture the group canon represents.

Again, while waiting for Canon ff mirrorless MF mirrorless is already here. Have fun in majority  ;)

who got that excited about it? it's nice that they improve but most of us are still waiting with bated breath for the 6D Mark II et all moreso than mirrorless.

A7RII? lol. good luck with that, then why are you here?

(rrc, #3 above gets to your "way too soon" comment.  I agree that a gamechanging 6D2 spec list or design might rock this poll a bit, but only 10/66 in the uncertain bucket might imply that the vast majority sufficiently believe the rumored specs/prices to have made up their mind.)[/i]

I find everyone's thought processes fascinating with this.

doesn't have to be game changing. the inclusion of an AF joystick would change the poll dramatically I would imagine.
