    Canon officially announces the EOS RP

    Looks a great camera for the enthusiast... But where is the 5D replacement? In August it will be 3 years since it was released with no real rumors of a replacement this year? The R cameras are intriguing but with AF that isn't stellar especially eye AF and single card slots its a non starter...

    Canon thinks the camera market will drop by another 50% over the next two years

    Ive bought plenty through necessity. I just don't get excited about any of it anymore.Its replacing worn out gear rather than vastly superior gear.

    Canon thinks the camera market will drop by another 50% over the next two years

    Maybe not from an image quality side as most people are pretty happy with the quality of the images available across the majority of dedicated cameras. Its usability, integration, easy share, internal editing capabilities etc etc At the end of the day the camera is just that a dedicated stand...

    Canon thinks the camera market will drop by another 50% over the next two years

    I think its amazing that non of the big camera manufacturers are looking at what Apple/Samsung/Google are doing with computational photography and adding features into cameras that have incredible sensors. Would save so much time when editing and you could choose what is right for your situation...

    Canon thinks the camera market will drop by another 50% over the next two years

    Its a catch 22 if they don't innovate and bring new product to the market then how can they expect to sell more? The product line is so stagnant and it has been since the 5DMKIII which was 2012, thats 7 years of not much happening or improvement. The schedule of updates is so long that there...

    Canon EOS 7D Mark II listed as discontinued, but no reason for excitement

    Interesting I had the same path. 350d to 40d to 7D to 5DMKIII then 7DMKII as a secondary camera then twin 5DMKIIIs and a 7DMKII. Had a 5DMKIII stolen and bought a 6DMKII and 5DMKIV and sold the 7DMKII. IMO the original 7D wasnt great and sold it within a couple of months. Hated the sensor even...

    Canon EOS 7D Mark II listed as discontinued, but no reason for excitement

    I disagree, I specifically posted images in challenging and average situations. Shooting in a rainforrest with extreme changeable light through the canopy with large variations between highlights and shadows is probably one of the most challenging situations a photographer will experience.

    Canon EOS 7D Mark II listed as discontinued, but no reason for excitement

    Wow dont hold back... lol I think its hilarious how people get so emotionally invested in a tool. If it doesn't work for you then move on. My thoughts are that the sensor wasn't amazing but it wasn't awful either. If you work within its limitations you can get some great images, if you...

    No its on the outside so you follow the pedestrian path. You can walk down from car club 9 section and the first gap that looks down the straight, the second is on the other side of the curve where the TV symbol is on the map near the village corner. Believe it or not its not really because you...

    The best place to be for a spectator photographer is at the loop, there are 2-3 photographer section, its a real hole in the fence for safety made for spectators but its the only one on the track that I can think of. That corner is always eventful. Sideways Action, Historic Formula 1...
