David, OP was logically correct though in saying that IF R5 EVF has not been improved from R, THEN .... I actually second that motion. But my semi educated guess is that vastly improved sensor readout of R5 will allow for a much lower evf latency. As in you get your evf content more insync with reality and faster . 3 times faster in fact. That may be adequate.That’s all great. If this, if that... But you still haven’t seen this camera, and are not qualified to judge or rate it. Idle speculation is worth just what it costs.
Your first paragraph is an excellent synopsis of just in time manufacturing; with a little luck this virus may finally be the end for that dreadful method of operating a business (you're gambling your business that there will never be a supply chain disruption...or you can lay in some extra parts and be in a position to keep working during unforeseen events. Your choice...)I think you're looking at this with some seriously rose tinted glasses. I find it hard to believe that Canon has very much stock built up for a camera that's still several months from release. Also generally the way stuff gets manufactured now with just in time component deliveries to the plant, they don't "build up" a stock of components before something gets made. It's a financial liability to set on a bunch of expensive parts months before you actually build a product. Parts are normally delivered to the factory very shortly before they're actually used to build a camera.
I also don't think Canon will release the camera until they have a good stock of them built up. They aren't going to release the camera with only a very limited supply to sell to people. As soon as the camera is released, people will be looking towards how many Canon has been able to sell to judge if the camera is a success or not. And not having enough stock on hand is a good way for Canon to look very bad from several angles, ie they can't build cameras quickly enough, also the impression that no one is buying their new camera, and finally unhappy customers waiting forever on their preorder. Releasing a camera before you have sufficient stock built up is a recipe for disaster.
That Fro-knows-photo guy just did a video with the 1DxMkIII where he used some kind of weird adapter that allows the LCD on the back of the camera to be used with an eye cup. That worked out pretty stellar for him. It simulated mirrorless performance as he just locked the shutter out of the way and used live view to shoot.
the M6 ii can do 14 fps with tracking. That’s a 32mpix sensor and not without the processing speed of digic x. Think we’re good.I am aware of Eos R fps, as for the R5, we don't know yet so speculation is pointless. Whats promising is that what the R5 can do that the R can't is 20fps in electronic mode, so I doubt the mechanical mode will be so hindered as the Eos r is. that's my hope.
Total frame render will be roughly <exposure time> + <readout time> + <processing time and transferring the data to the EVF> + <rendering time>But my semi educated guess is that vastly improved sensor readout of R5 will allow for a much lower evf latency.
Could we please just stop the stupidity with the "professional" moniker being given just to the 1DX line? I myself don't give a s... to the whatever sports 20mpx monster is. Different camera, different purposes. So the professional wedding shooters, or the high megapixel photogs working in a commercial advertisement area, are not professionals? I also absolutly don't care, what Canon calls them. 1DX III is not more professional to the photog having a complete different job requirements - how much is it professional, if it does not fit the bill for some?
Craig is confident. I'm wondering if they will just launch it for the Olympics, and just have demo units there for the professionals to try out.Do we expect a full launch announcement at Photokina then in May? Can't wait for the fuill specs. Stil have all my Canon glass (EF admittedly) and would love to have a really capable Canon mirrorless. Still won't sell my Sony's as the glass I have is too nice to give up, but if the R5 has the DR and AF performance I'm hoping forI might sell the AR73 sooner and just keep the A9.
absolutely true; I earn my living with the 5D camera's. Sometimes wish for just a bit more speed and buffer, but this option is simply more cost efficient for me.The word "professional", when applied to equipment, usually means "heavy-duty".
Marketing-driven exceptions are possible.
I think you have quoted me by mistake. I was asking Goldwing to post some images because he was bitterly complaining. I have no idea how the new 1dx is performing, but I'm interested in knowing more!So, can you explain what you find disappointing about the 1dx III? Sure your aren't talking about the Nikon D6?
