Canon Moves Quickly Into Robotics [CR4]
« on: March 02, 2018, 05:02:00 PM »
While the EOS Rebel T7 and EOS Rebel T100 may not have lit the ethusiast world afire, Canon robotics just might.

I spotted this guy while visiting customer service at Canon Canada today. The choice of using the EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS as the legs was a solid one to allow for adjustable height.

After some Facebook discussion, I’m of the belief that the fine folks at Lensrentals.com are going to build a bigger one.

The Take Yourself Too Seriously Sony crowd will have issues with the use of the word 'Quickly'.

Loved this!

Craig was right  ;D

I wonder if that 1D mark III is fully functional. I can send in my 1D mark II and swap if their camera will just collect dust there :D

Now the word "Body" for a camera body makes sense at all.

Another disappointment by Canon.  This is seriously crippled.  Why not use the 1200mm lens for the legs?

Because CR3 is the new RAW format (of the new M50), more RAW than CR2.
But this robot is so ultimately raw, it is CR4 already.

I think a lot of people here will complain that dynamic range of this robot is crippled, competitor robots have 1 mile more dynamic range. Competitor robots also feature full electronic motion (maglev, which is also completely silent), not the obsolete mechanics.
