I am with you on all counts. Weight over size. I want controls which are not cramped. Canon is known for their ergonomics and if there is anything I learned from my short lived Olympus mirrorless experience it's (besides the atrocious menu system) if your dials and buttons are not well placed you accidentally change a setting and it dooms your shot. The Canon joystick is a marvelous thing and I hope to see it on the FF ML. I am pretty happy with the EVF in the M5, it's not perfect but it is very useable and with a few minor improvements it could be ready for Prosumer use. I think it all comes down to flange, a topic well discussed here and elsewhere. Abandoning the 130 million lenses would be a travesty and I just don't see it happening. Good article Craig.

It does have a terabyte of storage so yes that is a bene but the price you mentioned....It retails for $300 USD. How on earth are you getting it for that unless it's used? Also yes, you should be good on the tv since it has HDMI out (for viewing) and every slot you would need except CFast for input. For transfer you had a variety of options, NFC, cabled or mobile app.

It is for 69 GBP on Canon UK with -40 for some promotion.

EOS Bodies / Re: Is a Super35 Mirrorless Camera Coming?
« Last post by Frodo on January 22, 2018, 06:29:55 PM »
I'm seeing a size discrepancy here between these posts and other Super35 sensor size comparisons online. What is the real difference in size between aps-c and S35? I know it's a format difference from 3:2 and 16:9 but they're really not that much different in size are they? Frodo's mm2 measurements suggest they are.

I got my figures from here:
https://cvp.com/support/page/image-sensor-size-comparison/page

The generic Super35 is not much wider than APS-C, but with a 4:3, compared to 3:2, format, its a lot higher.  This would capture more of the image circle from an EF-M lens, but would make the angle to the corners a bit more extreme (e.g. image fall-off).
Seems a relatively easy way to get more pixels without increasing pixel density.
As I tend to print 3:2 (similar to A3/A3+) or 2:1, I would not benefit much from Super35, but given the market for four-thirds, it appears that others do.

Beyond Canon’s stellar brand loyalty and brand power, there are a few things that a full frame Canon mirrorless absolutely needs to be successful.

Fstoppers posted an article today outlining what they think it needs, and it pretty much mirrors (doh) what I’ve been saying for the last year or so.

A native EF mount The Canon EF lens lineup is the best in the business. No other camera manufacturer has the breadth and depth of lenses, nor the manufacturing power to churn out amazing glass time and time again. This is Canon’s biggest advantage over other manufacturers and will ensure they take the #1 spot in mirrorless camera sales without much marketing effort.

This is where I think Nikon is going to make a massive mistake if they really do require you to need an adapter to fit F mount glass.

No adapters! I hate adapters, and I even hate teleconverters. Any extra thingy I have to worry about to use gear is a non starter for me. If I think I have to add a teleconverter to a 500mm lens, then I’ll buy a 600mm lens. Thanks to Canon for the EF 200-400mm f/4L IS 1.4x.

Lens adapters are to solve a unique problem, and I don’t mind them if I really have a need to use an FD lens or a Nikon lens on my Canon camera. But if I’m using a modern Canon lens, it better fit without an adapter on my modern Canon camera.

Adapters are lazy.

Size and weight? Is this really why we want mirrorless cameras? I’d argue going too small is actually bad for usability when attaching larger, heavy lenses. Attach a Canon EF 85mm f/1.2L II to a Sony A7R with an adapter. It’s all sorts of awkward to shoot with and you get odd fatigue in your hands, wrist and forearms. If you’re adding a battery grip to your mirroless camera, then you’re already admitting you don’t care about size and to some degree, weight.

If you remove the mirror and shutter assembly, you’re going to naturally reduce weight.

Here’s something for you, a Canon EOS Rebel SL2 weighs less than a Sony A7R with a mirror and shutter assembly.  Yes, the build quality is different, but I’m sure Canon can come up with something to make a camera with their great durability and amazing weather sealing.

EVF The EVF has to be the best in the business. Period. No skimping on parts and manufacturing here Canon.

It’s rare I give my opinion on gear, but I’m actually quite opinionated on what Canon needs to do with a full frame professional mirrorless camera.

Head over to FStoppers to read their take, as well as Canon News for their take.

You done well!

PS., If you should sell your Canons, keep me in mind, though I'm cheap! Cheap! CHEAP!  :o  ;D.


More backlit from today.  Maybe I should do like Artie and sell all my Canon gear since "Nikon AF is light years ahead".  My Canon won't snap onto these guys at the speed they travel.

Thanks everyone for the encouragement.  Funny how the dreariness of winter is lifted by even just one shot. ;)  I'm addicted as probably most of us here on CR are.

Great shots from recent posts everyone.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: New Battery for 1DX M2
« Last post by privatebydesign on January 22, 2018, 06:00:11 PM »
I found this old thread... has anyone tried to charge a LP-E19 battery on an LC-E4 charger?

I am looking for a spare charger for my 1DXII, and is hoping to get away with a pre used “1DX charger”, as the LC-E19 charger is crazy expensive.

As Privatbodydesign claimed, I read Rudy Winston so that older chargers would work, but not for a full charge on the newer LP-E19 batteries, but the CPS answer expatinasia had received leaves me with less hope...

I tried and neither charger nor battery fitted in either of the others. That is the LC-E19 could not charge the LP-E4 batteries and the LC-E4 could not charge the LP-E19 batteries. However the AC Adapter Kit ACK-E4 from the earlier models does fit and work in the 1DX MkII.

I was very surprised by this misinformation from senior Canon personnel, but there are notches on the chargers that prevent the 'wrong' batteries fitting.

Got it and replied.
Thanks ISv.

Lion rock. I just sent you a personal message - to see how that system works and to give you my e-mail address in case you want more info about Maui and Oahu.
Cheers!
