Francis Sawyer: Let us guess: STILL no intervalometer for time-lapse.
Still no mirror lockup for an arbitrary number of shots.
Still no real downscaling of video to HD size.
Still no decent video codec and bitrate.
Still no clean HDMI out.
Canon: still way out in the weeds. Its management should be fired and replaced with a crew that knows something about photography and video.
Intervalometer - YES, it have this feature.
Clean HDMI out - no, you have to buy at least a 7D II or 5D III for this to happen, or wait for Magic Lantern to fix it :-)
MrTaikitso: For the last 25 years or more, I have logged every purchase I have ever made, from a bus ride to a computer or car. Recently found the details for an 8MB Sony MemoryStick that I purchased in 2001. That's eight megabytes. Price? £90 or so. (About $140.)
Today, that would get you a tad more memory in the Gigabyte range. We're talking a 1000 or more fold increase in performance to price ratio. That 256GB Sandisk card should be at the most £25 in 10 years, although I think it may be a lot sooner.
(Ironic, the price of that 8MB MemoryStick would buy you an entry level point and shoot today with a 2G SD card on the side!)
Still remember my first digital camera. A Nikon Coolpix 950. 1,9 mpix, and it costed me 9995 danish kroner - 1340 €, 1790 $ or 1123 £. And then the CF-card 2995 danish kroner - 401 €, 337 £ or 536 $ - the biggest and the best, 128 megabytes (not gigabytes).
Still got it, of nostalgic reasons - and still works on AA-batteries :-)
More expensive than my brand new Canon EOS 70D with 128 gigabytes of memorycards - so it's a lot cheaper today to be on the beat - and we still complain.
A lot of people obviosly bought a camera they in reality couldn't afford. I've seen a lot of the "affected" people wanting Canon to cut $1000 off the price.
The problem also exists on some 5D2 and on my 60D, and has never been a problem. It exists on several Nikon's too if you test by shooting the inside of a lenscap at ISO 800 or above. Lokk it up on Vimeo or Youtube.
I'm still in the market for a 5D3 when it hits the retailers shelfs here in Denmark.
Henrik NJ: I'm excited to see what will happen to the rest of EU.
In Denmark D800 is listed at DKR 17995 - 18745 = UKP 2023 - 2108In Sweden D800 is listed at SEK 24990 = UKP 2341In Germany D800 is listed at €2899 = UKP 2424
It can't only be in the UK they have made a "mistake" on the price if that's their excuse, it will be in the whole EU.
You're absolutely right about the high danish taxes and moms (like vat). We pay about 180% on cars !!!! The prices in Denmark is including moms, and there is no extra tax on still-cameras (under 30 min video-recording). Unlike many other things, cameras have always been cheap (not cheap enough) in Denmark compared to other EU-states.
I'm excited to see what will happen to the rest of EU.
Just an experiment with HDR.
