I think the boys and girls art the Canon HQ are wide awake.
Let's hope so..
They also have the clout along with Nikon to say it's not about pixel count.BUT
It's about sensor size and pixel size.
will the marketplace agree with them? And by marketplace, I mean people who already own P&S cameras that want to take the next step.
The new Canon 1D X is a step in the right direction.
I don't know about a step in the right direction, but it definitely does feel like it has been "built to order" rather than just "churn out a new one."
I shoot 75% of my digital work with an 11 MP FF camera at ISO 100. It kind of funny that my day rate is about 2 to 4 times the used value of that camera.
I'm constantly amused by the number of people that do most of their professional shooting at low ISO values because internet forums would have you believe that if a camera doesn't perform well at ISO 27589247 then it is worthless as it won't take good shots indoors of cats sitting still without using a flash.
I rent medium format digital occasionally, but more for "political reasons".
I still shoot my more important work on large 6x8cm film. No digital camera comes close to the aesthetic of larger medium format or large format lenses.
The one person that I've met doing LF work said they were getting 1GB
scans from each photo. At that much resolution, it even puts the 80MP backs to shame.
Canon is thinking outside of the spec number wars. I think we may see a very interesting flagship camera soon from Canon. In the video market they came out with a completely new format. I would not be surprised if they do it with a still camera too.
Which new format did they come out with for the video market?
