    It's worth another try, and now's certainly a good time for another try.

    Music to the ears of computer manufactures, too.

    Canon Q2 2019 financial results released

    I can read it was taken with a 5DII. And that bolsters your argument for ditching such cameras how?

    IBIS is coming to select next generation Canon DSLRs [CR2]

    Good point. Have there been any DSLR's with IBIS? I only know of mirrolress bodies with it.

    Latest sales data shows Canon maintains big market share lead in Japan for the year

    Fuji also just announced they'll be making ACROS film again. They do seem to have their finger on the pulse of actual consumers. And if they market the film as something like "just like the ACROS setting in your XT-1," that would be a bold and unique strategy.

    Canon publishes a paper discussing a new 3.4 μm pixel pitch global shutter CMOS image sensor with dual in-pixel charge domain memory

    All of the nominated documentaries at the Oscars were shot on Canon cameras.

    But ARRI hasn't penetrated general camera forums, so we'll have to settle for arguing about Canon, Sony and Nikon.

    All of the nominated documentaries at the Oscars were shot on Canon cameras.

    The point is, a lot of people who are doing the complaining don't actually know much about video. They just know how to read a spec sheet.

    Is the term ISO “totally fake”?

    On #2, film was (and still is) the same way. "Box speed" is only a rough suggestion, and each photographer must do their own tests, and calibrate things accordingly. So your light meter only "works as you expect" after you've determined what those expectations are. Also, not all light meters...
