Neither was the M2, or the 11-22mm, or the 55-200mm.

Goose at a local marsh. It was blowing a regular gale this morning so I had great difficulty holding my lens (300mm f/4L + 1.4x extender) still enough to get decent shots. I took over 200 pictures but only a handful were good enough to keep.

This was a cool little resourse to visit websites back in the early internet. Want to see what the press release for the original D30 was? Check it out, and reflect on how much personal digital imaging has changed... Even though I still have a D30.

If you see an old canon camera you used, link it and we can revel in its antiqued glory.

If I paid $750,000 for a Toyota, I'd expect it to perform.

Good on you for buying a $750,000 Toyota.  ;D


It probably will come with their special upholstery stainproofing and a wax job.

I have just seen this thread. My daughters are often "embarrassed" by my cameras. My younger daughter played in the National Youth Orchestra for the Queen's recent jubilee celebrations. You could not have had a prouder father. After the event I took a few decent (IMvHO) photographs. She was totally horrified when I posted one on Social media and I learned my lesson (yet again) post nothing without prior approval...

Proud fathers!!!
I remember you posted this picture earlier. Excellent picture! Daughters rock. I have two. Fathers, maybe not so much  :P

About pride, well I believe, our children are like arrows, launched and living their trajectory; as we, the parents - and the rest of the village watch. The whole flight is theirs.

I like that RPT...good stuff.

Competing camera GH4????? are you serious?

Yeah, why not? I bet he was. Why would he not be? The GH4 flew off the shelves in far greater numbers than expected because of the 4k video. Or that the 5D2 also beat expectations with help from the video crowd.

Quote
I guarantee Canon know their market better than most people here give them credit for.

The same Canon that laughed at the RX100 at few years back and said that they were certain there was zero market for such a camera.... and now a couple years later after RX100 flew off the shelves they scramble out with their clone.

Quote
The new Canon EC10 has 4K just go and buy that,

Why? When for just 20% more money we could get a BM Ursa Mini that has a much larger sensor, does 4k at 60p, takes Canon EF lenses instead of being restricted to a built-in lens, I believe has RAW HD option, I think hits something like 150fps in HD, etc. etc. etc.

Also, you do realize that a 5D4 with nice 4k video means lugging around ONE item, especially nice on hikes and it means spending a large chunk of money once instead of twice?

Quote
is it a personal vendetta that some people have waged against Canon to push them to include 4K? I applaud Canon for sticking to their principles

Leaving out 4k is sticking to their principals??? What principal is that????

Quote
I personally would never use my dslr for video, horses for courses but thats me.

Fine enough, but also you do realize the 5D4 will still have some video, even if likely forgetable by today's standards so it won't be your 'pure' stills only body anyway. It will have just enough video to annoy the so-called 'purists' and not enough video to satisfy the stills/video crowd. Sounds like the best of both worlds  ;) :D.

Quote
Don't worry Canon won't get off that easy  though they better bring a real improvement to the quality of stills which I'm sure they will and even then its not because I particularly need it but just to show that advances are being made.

I would have that they will too, but looking at the 5Ds.... it's the same old, same old, and that was supposed to be a dedicated landscape image quality camera.... unless the dual-gain read rumor is true, then it may be game on again, at least up to 18MP level.

GH4 flying off the shelves....So what!!  thats my point those who bought them obviously wasn't concerned or did not want / need the stills capability that the 5D offered. Point proven, we are all different with different needs. It seems that Canon has aligned itself with users who have needs such as mine and I'm good with that. To those who are going to throw tantrums and sell all their Canon kit if the new camera does not have 4K again I say you obviously have no requirement or appreciation for the principles of which the 5D was born, which was to be a fine stills camera.

1. How does making a camera worse at something than the competition make it better?
2. What makes you think it will be so awesome for stills? EVen the 5Ds, a dedicated landscape camera, got a 2007-type sensor.

I tried this for the first time today and found it very challenging. I missed a lot of wickets by chimping the previous delivery. Does anyone have any tips for getting good close-ups with reasonable DOF?
