Forgive my ignorance...Where can I enjoy 4K Video? My TVs are only HD, my computer monitors are HD! What is the benefit of 4K Video over 2K? So I can crop? In still photography it makes sense to have higher and higher resolution, up to a limit of course, as I can have large prints with high MP photos, but for videos? Is there any 'everyday' benefit of having 4K over HD? Will they look nicer on a HD screen? Or it is only for professional film making and large screens? If so, why put in in an amateur body?
The market of superzoom cameras will increase...!
Is it available in different colors? I want to buy all of them!
Which category shall the Canon G16 fall in?
Comparing apples and oranges,,,
Could you, please, do similar tests for the 7D?
"70-200s of all makes among least reliable lenses"
the most abused ones... which is not a surprise, as possibly that is the range most people find themselves to shoot at...
nixda: Here are two things I'd like to see in a camera that haven't been mentioned before:
1. Square sensor. The image circle is a, um, circle, so why tossing out valuable sensor real estate? Aspect ratios can be selected via the menu or in post-processing, if desired. Also, one wouldn't have to struggle with landscape vs. portrait orientation and all that brings with it when it comes to holding a camera or mounting it to tripod heads.
2. The edges of the bottom plate should be shaped to be compatible with the Arca-Swiss standard.
How about a sensor that has circle shape? Then we would not 'lose' any information...
New features look very interesting, good luck to you!
pete zeugma: only problem I haveever had is the camera groupings. please return the 1D forum to 1D only cameras and create a 5D/6D petty squabble forum
I agree, that would be great!
VJVIS: BORING, Next...
Apart from bringing down the price of other mirrorless cameras, this is a total waste of time, money and effort, but I am quite happy the prices of other mirrorless cameras will come down.
Jim Radcliffe: Well, it appears to be exactly what I expected Canon to produce. No viewfinder and not really pocketable unless you are using the kit lens and have a good sized pocket (for camera and cash).
It's good they used the APSC sensor but honestly, if I were going to mount a 70-200mm on anything the body would have be more substantial than this. What is the point of a small, mirrorless camera using EF lenses other than to please those who already have those lenses?
To me this seems to have been thrown together just so Canon can say they have a mirrorless "system". The entire design seems to be aimed at NOT having any impact on their DSLR line. I think Fuji has a better concept.
I'm sure it will be "perfect" for many who already have invested in Canon glass and those who are within the Canon fold.
Canon is my choice over all other brands as far as a DSLR is concerned, but Sony is my choice of mirrorless. I have invested a lot in Canon because of their superior DSLR lenses, and I think the kit lens of f/2 of this new camera and the APS-C format was a good choice, but the lack of electronic viewfinder and a range of native M mount lenses will turn many potential customers completely off, including myself. Sorry Canon, but I will continue to have two systems... Sony is way ahead of you in this field...
Interesting to add the NEX-7 to the comparison... Amazing!
This camera has been discontinued...? Surely was not a huge success...
