8 stops of internal image stabilization. That’s impressive.
So what does the combined come out to with the new RF lenses? 10? Or 12?
“3 When combined with certain IS lenses such as the RF24-105mm F4 IS L USM, or when used with certain non-IS lenses as well.”It doesn't work like that. The R5 also has "up to" 8 stops of stabilization only with IBIS for specific lenses where the image circle is big enough.
Combined with lens IS won't add more than 0.5 stops.
I'm assuming you're the authority on that topic - I'm just thinking back to the R5 and the number of eBay "New in Box" ones going for $1000+ or more than list. Of course they weren't "Authorized" dealers - but they might have had a pretty close relationship with some I'm thinking.An authorized Canon retailer cannot go above the MSRP. They can go below MSRP in-store only.
I think you may have misread his post. He's saying that having lens IS or not is not so much the limiting factor for the stabilization rating as the size of the imaging circle projected by the lens.“3 When combined with certain IS lenses such as the RF24-105mm F4 IS L USM, or when used with certain non-IS lenses as well.”
Your statement differs from Canon’s. I’ll go out in a limb and say they’re right and you’re wrong.
But, that same footnote (and the 8-stops with certain non- IS lenses) may also apply to the R5.
Depending on the readout speed of the new sensor the mechanical shutter may be more or less irrelevant.I am surprised that the 16fps mechanical shutter wasn't included in the R3. I guess that it is one differentiator with the 1DXiii - for all the "flagship" debate
I suppose it’s the ratio between the smallest and largest possible values of a changeable quantity, or if you prefer the ratio between the full well capacity and the noise floor, or if you prefer the visual interpretation of the above based on an 8x10" print viewed at a distance of about arms length.What do you suppose the dynamic range is?
I agree that a stacked BSI sensor should have a fast readout speed and getting closer to an effective "global shutter".Depending on the readout speed of the new sensor the mechanical shutter may be more or less irrelevant.
If the readout speed is as fast, or faster, than the flash sync speed of the mechanical shutter then there's really no advantage to the mechanical shutter in regard to indoor lighting or rolling shutter effect. I'm really interested to see what the readout speed is on this body; for indoor sports some of the newer high frequency LED systems being installed will cause banding even with mechanical shutters. The only real way around that is a global shutter but until I'll take whatever camera has the fastest readout speed.I agree that a stacked BSI sensor should have a fast readout speed and getting closer to an effective "global shutter".
I would be happy to remove the mechanical shutter for less moving parts, cost reduction and eshutter flash sync speed.
That said, rolling shutter and indoor lighting banding are still issues to be resolved and I don't think that R3 buyers would be the first ones to test it.
Having a variable speed for the eshutter would also be essential to remove the mechanical shutter but not confirmed yet in the marketing document. I think that a fixed 30fps for eshutter will be universally panned. I can't see the reason for the R5 to have 20fps fixed just to have silent shutter.
yes likely so....but the highest price of all of the other flagships (Nikon, Sony)...this is disappointing. I did think Canon was going to really get aggressive with their cameras and pricing.This ^ I fully expect the R1 to have the resolution of the R5 (at least) with the speed and all the perks of the R3. More of an OP A1.
I think Canon will be aggressive with the cameras and lenses but they are not going to be a discount manufacturer.yes likely so....but the highest price of all of the other flagships (Nikon, Sony)...this is disappointing.
