3.5" Screen Coming to Next EOS-1? [CR1]
« on: September 28, 2013, 04:49:54 AM »

A Bigger LCD?

We were told that Canon is currently testing a 3.5″ screen on the next generation EOS-1 body. The screen has multi-touch capabilities and higher resolution than the current 3.2″ LCDs.


Outside of that, more mentions of various mp sensors in testing. Still the same 39mp and 44mp numbers we’ve heard previously.

Hmmmm  :-\ ... I'm happy with my CamRanger which allows me to view/shoot images on dozens of screen sizes ... besides, Canon, most likely, will charge a bomb for this camera.

If Canon had a 5" monitor I could plug into a body and use to navigate menus with a touchscreen, I'd be interested.  A slightly bigger touchscreen on the back, right next to the buttons anyway?  Meh.

Because with buttons you can change settings without taking your eye from the viewfinder.

I don't think a entire touch screen interface will work. Most photogs operate their camera without ever looking at any of the buttons. Not sure one can use a touch screen display with the same speed and ease. I certainly don't think I can.

Try using your touchscreen phone without looking at it ...

Because knowing the position of physical buttons / dials makes it quicker to make changes whilst actually shooting.

However I briefly had a 650D and the touch screen did work very well. Would I prefer only touch screen ? No way !

( just seen the other replies: quite right !)

I think the touch feature on entry camera such as T5i could be cool,
but couldn't imagine seeing that on the professional line.
Somehow, I feel like it losing the old school *reason why some folk still shoot Leica?  :P

sorry but you guys are really a sad bunch.  ;D
instead of saying "hey great bigger screen, higher resolution and touch function" you try to find reason to not like it.

i guess when someone hands you a trolley with money your complain that you have to pull it home.  ;D


bigger display.. higher resolution.. im all for it!

You take my comment wrong; I wouldn't complain about it if it is a feature of the next 1D body, but it isn't something I'd shop for.  Canon has an effective tactile interface that works, no sense ruining good trying for perfect.

I'm looking forward to being able to place a phone call on
the 5" LCD of the 2016 release of the Canon EOS 1D-iPhone.
Siri installed for voice activation and hands-free operation.

Field tests being done using all mobile carriers with the
Apple iOS.

200mp sensor  ~ 1Tb media recommended (2Tb would be better)

You will be able to do shutter release and change settings
remotely on an endless array of cameras all at once or
separately, in different buildings or even different continents.

Firmware updates via iTunes and App Store.

i agree that i would not exchange the buttons for a touchscreen.
but a touchscreen can be effective in some situations.

it´s like live view.
first the majority of still shooter said LV is useless.
it took some time before people realized that, for some situations, it´s great.
i would not buy a camera without LV theses days.

A touch screen would work very well for me.  I've tried out the one on the t4i and found it to be very useful in many cases.  Certainly, buttons won't go away, but in liveview, being able to just touch the eye of your subject and have the camera instantly focus on that spot is very handy in studio situations.  I'd love to see it be able to work from a large screen monitor tethered to the camera in the studio.
 
I have very little feeling in my fingers, and don't always know which button, if any, my finger is resting on.  I even have difficulty with the shutter button.
