EOS Bodies / Re: Canon EOS 6D Mark II Talk [CR1]

If you read this thread carefully, you will read detailed lists with facts about what's missing.

Yes, the amount of missing knowledge you've displayed in this thread is quite significant. 


Big congratulations to you, because If you think that my list of 20 features - from silent shooting to articulating screen etc - is completely irrelevant to you, it means you can already today buy THE perfect camera from Canon that can't be improved at any point in the future, aside from dynamic range and resolution! 

I didn't say they are all irrelevant to me, my point is that given that the lack of them has not seemed to affect Canon's market share to date, they are likely not of sufficient importance to the general camera-buying public to make a difference.  Get it?

What does it help a photographer or filmmaker out in the field, when an articulating screen is missing, while Canon's marketshare is high?  Will a photographer in a wedding church be more happy about a silent shutter or recordbreaking numbers for Canon?  Will you be happy if 5 features are removed from your current camera, when you know Canon makes twice as much profit?  Is this the Wallstreet Journal forum?

Well, then...just give Canon your list.  I'm sure they'll immediately address all 20 of your critically lacking features. 

The idea here is that it might help you understand why Canon doesn't feel the need to include the features for which you or any other particular individual are clamoring.  Not sure why you can't seem to grasp that features to include/exclude are a business decision, and in the case of Canon cameras, it's Canon's business decision. 

All you can decide is whether or not to purchase Canon's products.  Given that you've decided to purchase many of them and continue to do so, the message you personally are sending to Canon is that they're meeting your needs.  Yes, I know you said you'd have bought more if they had features you wanted...but Canon doesn't give a crap, they have no way of confirming that (other than your word, which isn't even worth the electrons you're using to transmit it).  You buy their stuff – along with their millions of other customers – and you confirm their business decisions.

My shopping message to Canon just was:  I only bought 1 instead of 2 1DX2 and 1 instead of 3 5D4 - because of their lack of innovation, or better said: lack of including what their competitors already sell. 

People like you should finally realize that those missing features are not a favor to customers so they are not confused with too many new functions.  The one and only purpose is to spread features over as many new products over the longest possible time, so you spend more money.  They try to squeeze as much out of it as possible, so it's fair that customers give the pressure back and demand as many realistic features as possible.

You do realize that Canon has a 4 year development cycle for products like the 1D series, right?

Even if you were to give them your whole list, and they implemented it as fast as possible, you'd get a new 1D or 5D with those features in 2020.

And I wouldn't be surprised if they do have a lot of that stuff on the next round of bodies.
Congratulations! You're probably going to get what you want... in four years.
Chances are they've already written out the list of things to implement in the 1DX3, because Canon only releases the highest quality products, and quality takes time.

The message Canon heard was that you bought a 1DX II and a 5DIV.  They neither know nor care about what you didn't buy, and by purchasing two high-end bodies, you told them, "Good job, Canon!"

People like you should finally realize that Canon doesn't give a rat's ass about what you don't buy.  Feel free to demand that Canon incorporate the features you want.  Then you can hold back the tide with your bare hands.  Then count backwards from infinity.  All of those have about equal chances of success. 


DUDE; YES CANON APS-C LENSES CAN'T BE ATTACHED BECAUSE OF THIS; AND THIS IS WHY CANON SHOULD CHANGE THE MECHANICS OF NEW CAMERAS AND LENSES, THAT'S THE WHOLE POINT!!! 

All other camera and lens manufacturers show it's possible to build it differently!!!

Because other manufacturers do it differently, that's better?  You prefer lenses being larger than they need to be?  They could solve in a second the incompatibility of current EF-S lenses with FF bodies?  They should come out with a third mount comprising FF-compatible lenses that aren't really compatible except with crop modes? 

Shout some more, dude...it really helps convince people of your point and makes you sound super duper smart.

So I'm curious,  is there anything canon could have added to 5div to make it a better tool for photographers or do you believe that it is the perfect camera?

How do you get a 2MP JPEG (for HD) when 4K delivers 8MP jpegs? I must admit I don't follow you here.

4k/UHD = 3,840 × 2,160 = 8,294,400 px
HD/1080 = 1,920×1,080 = 2,073,600 px

EOS Bodies / Re: Retailers who will work with you on purchases
« Last post by RGF on Today at 12:52:52 AM »
All,

Anyone know of retailers who might extend a payment plans to those who desire to make the jump to Full Frame? I ask as I saw a local furniture commercial which offered zero interest for a year on larger purchases.

Many thanks for the info in advance.

Companies that prices RAW files

You might want to edit your title...

Thanks. I love auto correct.

Hey Don, you came through with flying colors. 

It reminds me of my woodworking that just doesn't compare with that done by many pros.  It also reminds me of some of my past bodywork and painting that exceeded what comes out of most body shops.  My tools are just run of the mill.  There are the tools and then there are the craftsmen and of course this is nothing new.  Being new to this hobby I have always blamed myself for my photographic failings but CR is starting to change that and now I'm getting GAS too! ;)

Still, I think it would be enlightening to have example photos show what the various complaints are relating to.

The poll could maybe include an option for "DSLR with Full HD features only".

Uneducated guess - should be cheaper than a DSLR with 4K features, "half-baked" version or otherwise.
