EOS Bodies / Re: EOS-1D X Mark II in Final Preproduction Form
« Last post by an0nymes on August 29, 2015, 07:31:30 PM »
Is one logical way, if you count in this way 10th generation is possible:
1/ EOS-1 (1989)
2/ EOS-1N and 1N HS (1994)
3/ EOS-1NRS (1995)
4/ EOS-1V and 1V HS (2000)
5/ EOS-1D (2001) and EOS-1Ds (2002)
6/ EOS-1D MkII (2004) and EOS-1Ds MkII (2004
7/ EOS-1D MkIIn (2005)
8/ EOS-1D MkIII (2007) and EOS-1Ds MkIII (2007)
9/ EOS-1D MkIV (2009)
10/ EOS-1DX (2012) and EOS-1DC (2012)

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: After the A7RII, What does the 5D4/X need to have?
« Last post by scyrene on August 29, 2015, 07:01:31 PM »
So, I'm probably going to purchase a A7RII but I'm still looking forward to the 5D4. If canon still puts a decent product, I could be swayed to hold off my purchase of the A7RII for native mount lenses/flashes.

This is what I'd like to see.

1. 32mp or higher MP with improved IQ.
2. AF & Metering improvements from the 7D2
3. ALL Crosstype AF
4. Fixed Blinking AF point fix.
5. 1/250th Sync Speed bump.
6. Dual CF
7. 7 FPS
8. Dual Pixel AF
9. 4K Video with S-log of some sort.
10. Touchscreen
11. RAW 1080P if possible.
12. Built-in RT flash controller.
13. Peaking and Zebra
14. USB Type-C/3.0
15. 3499$ or Less at launch.

...but your profile says 'gear doesn't matter'   ???

I'm curious if this is the actual name. I mean, technically speaking, isn't the 1D X really the "1D Mark X"? All the generational marks are in roman numerals, X is just 10. So, wouldn't the next 1D be the 1D Mark XI? Or just 1D XI. One Dee Zee! :P

Anyway, just a curiosity.

If the 1DX was the tenth 1D body then maybe, but it wasn't.

1/ 1D
2/ 1D MkII
3/ 1D MkIIn
4/ 1D MkIII
5/ 1D MkIV
6/ 1DX

1/ 1D
2/ 1Ds
3/ 1D MkII
4/ 1Ds MkII
5/ 1D MkIIn
6/ 1D MkIII
7/ 1Ds MkIII
8/ 1D MkIV
9/ 1DX

The 1D and the 1Ds were always completely different cameras made for different market segments, the 1DX was marketed as the amalgamation of the two, the crossover, of course it left the 1Ds MkIII users up S___ creek but we weren't the volume buyers of 1 series cameras, the 1D folks were. Those 1Ds MkIII users are supposed to be happy with the 5DS/R's now, as if MP's was all it was about.

So when there is a next 1DX it will be a 1DX MkII, just as the 1D was followed by the 1D MkII and the 1Ds was followed by the 1Ds MkII.

Canon explicitly marketed the 1D X as the tenth in the series of the EOS 1 line. That included film cameras. Seems odd to me that they would amalgamate the line and explicitly label it the tenth EOS 1, then again change the naming scheme and use 1D X Mark II...the second tenth iteration? Strange.

Not wrong:

Really, well tell me how to count to ten then  :)


Now if you are just talking EOS you have to do some very creative counting to get the 1DX to be the tenth 1 series camera! If you were very liberal with your counting/naming nomenclature you could, maybe, discount the 1D MkIIn as a refresh, though it was a good one, and the 1NRS as a low volume special,  but that still only gets the 1DX to 11th. So what else are you going to deny existed in order to get the 1DX to the tenth 1 series?

1/ EOS-1 (1989)
2/ EOS-1N and 1N HS (1994)
3/ EOS-1NRS (1995)
4/ EOS-1V and 1V HS (2000)
5/ EOS-1D (2001)
6/ EOS-1Ds (2002)
7/ EOS-1D MkII (2004)
8/ EOS-1Ds MkII (2004
9/ EOS-1D MkIIn (2005)
10/ EOS-1D MkIII (2007)
11/ EOS-1Ds MkIII (2007)
12/ EOS-1D MkIV (2009)
13/ EOS-1DX (2012)
14/ EOS-1DC (2012)

There is no logical way, other than in a marketeers mind, that the 1DX is the tenth anything.

EOS Bodies / Re: EOS M Finally Getting Attention from Canon in 2016? [CR2]
« Last post by Sportsgal501 on August 29, 2015, 06:42:55 PM »
They were referring to consumer cameras, not dedicated video cameras for professionals.

Were they? Then they should have said so. Mind you, given the thousands of short movies shot on Canon DSLRs, it's not like they suck at video. People would have noticed.

On the professional side of things, the Canon Cxxx cameras have a huge market share. You will find them in most rental houses, being sent-out on jobs every day.

Lol, no one uses a Canon DSLR as their first choice to shoot video now. Maybe years ago when the 5D2 and 5D3 first came out, but nowdays there are far superior options.

They were going to "get serious" about video in DSLRs when the 70D came out. How much progress has been made there? Um.....well.....none. All subsequent DSLRs have been a step back, and they were behind on the current state of the art at that point.

I was one of the official photographers for the NYC Triathlon and they were using a Sony for some portions of the video.

The charts look great (from what little understanding I have) but I want to see pictures.



There are a bunch of full-res samples up.

"It's pricey, but for *this* kind of performance the price seems fair."

and in a year it will surely drop a couple hundred or so
