    A couple of EOS R cameras that can be considered “pro” are in the pipeline [CR1]

    An 18MP sensor in a small, RP sized body with NO IBIS is all I need.

    Canon registers a 32.5mp APS-C DSLR in Taiwan

    I agree, 18MP is enough. I'd also like to see an 18MP Full Frame mirrorless—called it an RX ;-)

    New mid-level DSLR and EOS M5 Mark II the next ILC’s from Canon? [CR1]

    If I had a RP I'd use small and light Canon and Leica LTM lenses, with an adapter.

    New mid-level DSLR and EOS M5 Mark II the next ILC’s from Canon? [CR1]

    The M60 is even less a pro camera than the M5. For instance, their is no C1, C2 or C3. The M50 has far fewer AF points. Very poor selection of M lenses. Does the M50 do Focus Bracketing/ Stacking—this is very important to me. FF is no big deal, about the only time I'd use a 1Ds2 or 5D3 was...

    New mid-level DSLR and EOS M5 Mark II the next ILC’s from Canon? [CR1]

    For me, the RP with an EF-S lens on an adapter, would make a great crop camera. No interest in either an M or a 7D3. YMMV.

    Thoughts on the Canon EOS R roadmap

    He's not a child anymore. And he has put away childish things ;) People worth impressing are not impressed with cameras :sleep:

    Thoughts on the Canon EOS R roadmap

    I bought my son a Full Frame Film Rebel when he was shooting for his school's newspaper. :) Today he uses a Samsung 10S + instead of Canon IL Cameras.

    Thoughts on the Canon EOS R roadmap

    What I hope to see is a EOS R style replacement for the EOS 80D and the EOS 7D Mark II, plus some wide primes, aimed at the enthusiast and pro. What I expect to see is a Full Frame Rebel, a kit zoom and lots of slow (f/4-f/8) convenience zoom lenses (18-100, 100-200, 200-600, etc). Canon's...

    5 axis IBIS coming to next Canon EOS R series camera [CR2]

    For me, having IBIS is a deal-breaker. I consider IBIS an unwanted and unneeded complication to an otherwise great camera. YMMV.

    Two Canon EOS R series bodies coming in 2019 [CR2]

    I'd like to see a NO-Frills FF-R, Something minimalist using Leica M10 design principles. I don't need/want IBIS, Auto Focus, Video or High Frame Rate. A built-in flash, for fill, would be good. A Canon adapter to use LTM lenses from Canon/Leica rangefinder cameras would be great. While I'm...

    Opinion: Canon is causing its own problems with the RF mount

    I couldn't agree less! Ditching the FD lens mount allowed Canon to leave Nikon in the dust—R mount could do the same to Nikon's Z. BTW I can not see any reason that I'd want to put a big/bulky R 50mm f/1.2 lens on a petite EOS M body. YMMV.

    Here are the first images and specifications of the Canon EOS R and the new RF mount lenses

    How soon until Canon makes a full range of primes? For me, big/bulky zoomz.are a deal breaker. Is the 4k video amateur 3840×2160 (UHD) or professional 4096 × 2160 (DCI 4K)? Is there a native 4/3 and square (1x1) crop? The Leica L-Mount has an inner diameter of 48.8mm and a flange depth of...

    Industry News: Panasonic to release a full frame camera September 25th

    It would make more sense for Panasonic to make an APS-C crop camera. In Hollywood Super35 aka ASP-C is the standard—Angénieux, Cooke, Fuji, Leica and Zeiss make both prime and zoom Cine Lenses for this format. - If Panasonic does make a rebranded SL, I'll be the first in line to purchase a...

    A PCB Einstein goes from 2.5 Ws to 640 Ws. A Broncolor Siros L 400 is 2-400Ws. A Broncolor Siros L 800 is 4-800Ws. All three cover a nine stop range, which should be enough for almost anything. Umbrellas spill little light, if you know what you are doing. They can be feathered just like a more...

    Multiple APS-C Sensor PowerShot Cameras Coming? [CR2]

    How about a Ricoh GR II like camera An 18.3mm f/2.8 (28mm FullFrameFOV) prime lens with a 1.6 crop sensor. Made with the Canon 24Mp sensor, instead of 16Mp. I think that this would be the ultimate...
