A Bit of Mirrorless Informaton [CR3]
« on: July 19, 2012, 01:01:15 PM »
Soon…
We should see the new Canon mirrorless next Monday, details are still being confirmed about specifications and all that.

Don’t expect anything too “retro” or “rangefinder-esque”, as this is going to be a mass market consumer electronics type of camera. It’ll be more Nikon 1 than Fuji X-Pro 1.

I will post more when I can, a lot of what’s going around is pretty contradictory. Canon seems to have done a good job plugging leaks. :)

Details are still being confirmed?

What happened to posting specs and just updating them as time goes by?

More rumors, less news!

There is too much information that contradicts. Canon has done a bang up job of plugging some leaks. I have posted bits of information about it already.

This is going to be a pretty boring camera for the "photographer" I think.

So interchangeable lenses are to be the only feature differing it from P&S line?

It's to be hoped that it isn't too much like the Nikon V1, it's been a disaster!  Last time I went to the camera shop they hated them few customers wanted them, but those who did often returned them.  Never have I seen such a poor review on DPreview.

For me the look aren't as important as image quality, and auto focus speed.  There are a few other things I would like but I'll wait & see.

Well said. If it just another "me too" camera, I will look into the Panasonic LX-7.

I find it pretty amazig that only 3 days before (expected) announcement date it is not even clear yet, whether that upcoming Canon EVIL is just a sorry G1X-type P&S with a lens mount or a sorry "full auto" EVIL with an APS-C sensor.

Anyway, I know Canon is going to f*ck it up again.

If it has APS-C sensor, flash hotshoe, cable shutter release socket,  silent live view (best feature of canon cameras for macro photography) and comes with a EF adapter at launch I am in

So interchangeable lenses are to be the only feature differing it from P&S line?

That feature (native interchangeability, with adapter or not, with EF lenses) alone is big enough for event/wedding photogs to get it as a backup camera for its light weight and compact size.

If that camera is a 650D without mirrorbox but with basically the same features and a shorter flange distance (to adapt odd optics incl. older FD lenses) for the same price with an adapter included (optimim: a 20mm extension tube which can be used with other cameras for macro) - why not? I need an intelligent lens cap for my shorty forty and an APS-C video camera ...
TOOLS: EF-S 10-22 | 60 || EF 2.8/24 | 2.8/40 | 2.8+2.0/100 | 4.0/70-200 | 5.6/400 || 2 x 40D || 2x TC ||| 600D for video ||| EOS M + bunch of FD chrome rings

I can't help thinking that Canon really need to make a 'splash' with a really impressively specified enthusiast camera like the NEX 7 or X Pro1, then follow it up with a cheaper mass market model to cash in on the hype.  Part of the reason that I expect that isn't happening is because I think that Canon have a new sensor that they want to debut at Photokina in an enthusiast DSLR.

I don't think it matters much what they release now. Just to get some future posts out of the way...

That body is too big or small.
The sensor is too big or small.
The MP count is too many or few.
The kit zoom lens is too big or slow.
The prime(s) are too big and/or slow.
The AF is too slow.
It costs too much!
