So it's an improved low-light 5D mark I with a plug-in 4k video mode.

If canon would have balls, they would remove features instead of adding stuff that makes your life easier.

Do you think it will make you a better photographer if you can shoot nonstop @ 7fps holding your camera in front of you with live view?

Petzval lenses were designed for large format camera's. Let's say you have a 210mm lens f4.5 for a 5x7 camera ... that is about 44mm / ±f0.5 in 35mm world to get the same kind of view.
Besides that... nothing beats the ground glass view from such camera.

Anyway, let's see first real user experiences with this new gimmick lens.

Good move, All those pictures would be web-sized anyway or printed in a low resolution newspaper. Who cares about dslr qualities then. Iphone is fine enough.

If we wanted real quality we should all go back to the 4x5 press camera's

If you really want a leica, get a M6. It will cost as much as a rebel and although its not digital, it will make wonderful photos.

Waste of money this digital moviemaking. In 10 years there will be probably some 20mpixel video mode and your 2k/4k old stuff will look crap. While something shot on 35mm film or higher could still have more details.

So you make a 12mpixel photo, upload by wifi to your phone to upload instantly to instagram / facebook which will be converted to a 0.5mpixel photo.

That's just.... great...

who needs digital. Expensive pile of obsolete junk. Grab a $10 slr camera and you got a "full frame" camera. Read how the zone system works and you know exactly what you're doing with more good pictures then the guy that makes 50 shots of every subject.

Nice camera, but can it take 35mm rolls?

Why dont they make camera's with iso 25 and up for example? It would prevent me to take a ND filter with me for example.... also you can still buy 25 iso film if you want very fine grain, so why not on digital?

Direct link | Posted on Sep 14, 2012 at 18:59 UTC as 16th comment

in the past 100 iso/asa was considered fast. Yet, beautiful pictures were made by famous photographers. Nowadays people just care how it performs on 6400 iso or higher.
You think you can shoot better pictures if you have 256000 iso grainless?

I'm sure its a very nice camera in all aspects, its just that for me a camera that limits you makes me more creative.

Why full frame is still so expensive is a mystery to me.7 years ago Canon came with the 5d and the prices are still very high for a 35mm sensor. The world was photographing with 35mm for near a century already before

For instant gratification as in fast food, use instagram. If you like not only the outcome, but also the complete process.. use wet plate collodion.

And I bought the last roll of b&w kodak 400 Tmax film last weekend in a store... Got even a discount since he seemed to be happy that he could sell his last stock of film.

You will be missed kodak.

Kodak was known about having the simple family pictures. Even 50 years old albums its a pleasure to watch. Now look at today. You make 350 pictures of one birthday and throw it once on facebook. Yes you make a backup of it and who knows you can find/recover it back 25 years from now on an almost unreadable dvd since the online-backup service changed owners and went bankrupt.

But who is going to look through 350 pictures of a single birthday. Some people click brainless around and have so much mess that eventually they will never look back.

Which brings the question... who is still printing/selecting their fotos for family albums?

Somehow i'd prefer to make pictures of the participants & crowd making pictures of the same things .....with a leica.
