I said face detect already hit the eyes, and that eye-AF didn’t really add anything. For me the improvement would be more in general tracking of the fastest movement. Or really jerky movements when in face detect. I switch quite a bit between single point and auto-select, a more intelligent auto-tracking would be cool.Was it you or Canon Fanboy who said it was already perfect?
I vote for adding an intervalometer as well, but as much talk as Canon did about changing their ways about adding features after launch it just isn't in their DNA.Is be very happy if they could improve Eye AF, as well as bringing a proper intervalomenter in camera! The 80D has it, and I want to be able to control RAW files instead of having a pre-made video
Also the actual product would be 6K+
IF they can manage extra features too it would be even cooler, but usually it’s just bug fixes uff
the focus is fine but it takes foreversometimes for the eye af to kick in. also it doesnt work with sunglassesAny improvements are welcome on a camera I already own. But face detection has really been just fine for me and always hits the eye. Yet I still see reviews saying it focuses on the tip of the nose? I haven't seen any reviews provide evidence of this, they just say it. People are so bad and lazy about reviewing products sometimes.
A serious area that needs improvement is the responsiveness of the AF box moving with the subject, however. It's VERY slow in this department, so it would be nice if this gets better...but believe it's a limitation of the hardware onboard.
Bring on the enhancements. The last firmware update was a major quality of life improvement for me.
Yeah, light years... Thats why Canon gets more hit rate in test... The only thing thats bad is Canons tracking display is slower than it actually tracks.firmware update to improve AF (especially eye AF and tracking) would be nice: sony/nikon already light years ahead. Canon better step up and get ready for professional R body.
I don't think this would be unprecedented territory for Canon. Remember the firmware upgrade for the original M that drastically sped up its AF capabilities? Or the firmware update that added new features to the original 7D?I would say that it was Fuji that set the photo world on the path of functionality upgrades vie FW updates. Sony was quicker to catch on with Canon and Nikon only recently rousing themselves from their slumber on this concept.
Yes, but that was well after Fuji started this phenomenon. Before that, FW updates were bug fixes and updates to the Norwegian language menus.I don't think this would be unprecedented territory for Canon. Remember the firmware upgrade for the original M that drastically sped up its AF capabilities? Or the firmware update that added new features to the original 7D?
So they've done this before. The question might be now, will this become a rule with the new R-system cameras, rather than an occasional exception?
