When they brought the poor fellow to Olympus medical division, they were beside themselves...a perfect fellow for controlling the endoscope.
Is this another Beta camera that needs constant updates like fuji or is this a long term camera that will be constantly updated to extend its usable life?
mpgxsvcd: I am not seeing a lot to dislike about this camera. They would sell a lot more of these if they advertised them more and also sold them in stores like Best Buy right from day one. As it stands right now Canon will sell many times as many T6s/T6i cameras as Panasonic will sell G7 cameras.
That is also despite the fact that the Canon cameras had a significant defect in a large portion of their initial shipments(Which they addresses quickly), the T6s only does 5 FPS vs. the 7 FPS for the G7, The G7 is cheaper, and the G7 does 4K @ 30 FPS video vs just 1080p @ 30 FPS for the Canon cameras.
Panasonic’s issue is not that they don’t make great cameras. There issue is that not enough people even know they make cameras.
For a still photographer, 4k does have its uses...from Fred Miranda thread https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iM1_Dsq_VAA
4k is taking over if you need or want a new TV...Sony just dropped the price of its 49" 4k TV from $2,000 to $1,000.
nicolaiecostel: From the pictures I get that you absolutely need to nail exposure. The second picture is 2.3 stops pushed up from ISO 100 and looks like ISO6400. The DR of the portraits is bad, skin almost washed out. Canon sensor tech is years behind everyone.
Those shots were an answer to skin tones which the original gallery lacked.
Portraits added are great (everyone gone Northwestern with the beards, just missing the plaid shirts). I am curious about skin tones other than Caucasian, sometimes the manufacturer may be accurate on one skin type, not so much with others.
Papi61: Wow, it seems to be out of stock everywhere. Is it really selling like hotcakes or did Nikon only make a small batch?
I used to have the old 300/4, it was a phenomenal lens, but the lack of VR restricted it to a tripod (or at least a monopod.)
Comparing a flawed lens to an related problem is true straw man arguing...good work.
They had to recall the lens because of VR problems.
Lawrencew: Once again Canon is ripping us off in the UK
Whilst in the USA the price of the new STM is pretty much the same as the original lens - $129 vs $125 (Amazon, BH)
In the UK however, the new STM is £130, whilst the original is only £75 on Amazon et al - both including taxes.
So for us in the UK, Canon haven't introduced a replacement at the same price, but taken the opportunity to nearly *double* the price...
So there is no "Wow. Just wow. Thank you, Canon. And that price? Again, wow." as MikeFairbanks posted earlier. Just the opposite...
I suspect that taxes put on the supply chain of distribution and import duties are causing a lot of the excess cost. Camera lenses come into the US duty free.
Talk to your MPs about gov't mandated warranties etc; you as a consumer have to stand up and be counted.
Finally DP will have a great lens to test the new high resolution sensors Canon is putting out.
Why would you test lenses designed for aps-c with a cropped camera...it is analogous to testing FF lenses on aps-c. Really difficult to see anything on the sides (the center of most lenses are sharp).
Marcelobtp: No complaints about the lens used, they just use the best 85 from each vendor. it would be interesting to see an update to a OTUS 85 for each vendor, the ones that are not native use an adaptor for it.
I don't think you have priced modern lenses lately...many are more expensive than the cameras (which are throw aways in the modern digital world of constant upgrading).
Dp would have to lay off one of their new employees if they bought a couple of Otus for testing.
Stollen1234: just wondering why just ensrental is reporting this problem?? what about canon actual user who owns these models ..why arent they reporting this problem??
Write Canon on how quality control has no bearing on the camera you select.
Mike FL: Is this an issue too?
Easily cured with an aluminum hat
Stitzer23: Why do the spots appear at certain f stops only? Its on the sensor after all. Appreciate any explanation please. Thanks.
It is like having permanent dust bunnies on your sensor, probably also lowering contrast and accenting flare.
Image resource has an article of one their failed cameras.http://www.imaging-resource.com/news/2015/05/01/canon-t6-sensor-flecks-how-big-an-issue-an-in-depth-look
I know Canon will get everything right for affected customers...my question is how this may play out with unreleased 5ds and whether the same set of problems may be present.
Papi61: "capable of firing off 125 6x6 frames per second"
What kind of magazine would that require for a 10-second burst? Not to mention a whole gallon of lubricating oil for the entire system to not grind to a halt after 2 seconds...
Japanese whale oil...I don't know if it is still used in Janpanese cameras, Nikon sure changed something.
