Jacques Henri Lartigue was using an analog 3d camera system in 1902.In 2016 we have digital 2d camera system yet.That's evolution in technology. hehehe
NicoPPC: the EOS 80D looks like a real good APS-C camera for all-rounder. It can do everything, with a great quality and a great handling.
Canon Lens, and Sigma pushing high quality Lens as well.
Well, the 550D is still enough to me. I might upgrade later if the 550D breaks. Or even later when the price will drop a bit.
Actually, I am more looking for news (good APS-C) lens as for new camera. As I fell the 550D is pretty mature, und fit mostly my needs.
Well, with the APS-C cameras getting more "pro" (well expensive!), manufactures like Canon and Nikon should make some EF-S L.
Have a great day
It's possible that someone hasn't got AF issue.But for the other people that has got AF issue the best thing is to be able to correct that. Do not you believe it?
Perhaps the first step needed for Canon and Nikon is to add micro AF on ALL their DSLR.
toni2: Better dynamic range, finally!!
Only it notes that the dual pixel AF does not work through the optical viewfinder. hehehe
It's funny that some people don't have the ability to look far away. xDDD
But you are right about the DSLR future...
Better dynamic range, finally!!
It's time to remove Nikon Dxxxx and Canon xxxD who don't have microAF from interchangeable lens camera sales. It should be FIXED lens camera sales, because if you change for a better lens perhaps you will get out of focus photos.It's time for Canon and Nikon that they know what are selling.
toni2: Automated AF fine tune should be on EVERY DSLR, including the most basic models.Musical instruments are tuned. Reflex cameras must be too.
It's the only way with a mirror: have an AF fine tune, or remove the mirror.
@MasterWayneCanon will not be cheap. That's the only problem to sell an aps-c mirrorless with native EF/EF-S, EVF and dual pixel AF. It could be better than a lot of Canon DSLR. So, the problem is that Canon wants more and more money.Any time it will be selling, but overpriced.
@badbob42mk1The worst thing is the people who think that a DSLR can be sold without microAF. Speed is an added; but the accuracy is a basic thing. Remember it.
Perhaps sony af is not fast with mirrorless cameras, but you get in focus photos. That's all.
Akpinxit: Note to DP stuff : MagicLantern does provides fully automated Dot Tune future for Canon , which works just as described here for Nikon .
Yes, you can try Magic Lantern.But Canon should add af fine tune on their firmware. It's about being a professional company, but it seems that they are only a commercial company.
@MasterWayneI mean that if Canon wants, they could add microAF in the official firmware at least from Canon 550d upwards. But they, as Nikon, prefer to sell DSLR with microAF focus problems. Yes they aren't professional cameras but they are reflex cameras; so they should not be toys.
Magic Lantern doesn't add the ability to adjust microAF to Canon cameras.
And the worst is that at least from the Canon 550d it's possible to have micro AF. It's only a firmware thing. And a marketing thing, of course. Canon (and nikon, of course) prefer to sell cameras with focus problems that to solve the problem.You buy an interchangeable lens camera, but it's better if you don't change the lens. hehehe
"this module does not add AFMA support to camera bodies that did not contain this feature in Canon firmware"
Automated AF fine tune should be on EVERY DSLR, including the most basic models.Musical instruments are tuned. Reflex cameras must be too.
toni2: Good ergonomics, speed, good DR, good dual-af... And an OVF? Nice if it had an EVF.
@RedFox88Yes, buy a mirrorless or wait a couple of years. Mirror will die as the film died. It's only a question of time. You'll see it soon.
Good ergonomics, speed, good DR, good dual-af... And an OVF? Nice if it had an EVF.
Better DR -> checked.EVF -> perhaps 90d?
Richard Franiec: Same ol' will bring more cash than any mirrorless could dream about. Not even talking lenses and future upgrades to higher end models.As long as Canon and Nikon are most recognizable names in photo industry, they will play this game forever.
@Marty4650Canon 750 doesn't have LCD display. 750 and 760 doesn't have microAF.Canon 350 had LCD display. With 350 you can microadjust autofocus.Canon is actually doing garbage. The only point is marketing. Yes I know they can do it a lot better, but actually they are playing with people.
Reactive: It's desperately sad to see such a massive wave of pointless negative reactions from gear-lusting camera snobs who have no interest in this 'low-end' camera. You sound like a bus-load of spoiled high school rich-kid brats humiliating a little kid 10 years their junior.
Canon has to cover all parts of the market, including the bottom. The RRP is set deliberately high so when the discount electrical retailers put "40% off!" stickers on it they're still making a profit. It's not a new idea.
So why don't you brats take your vitriol off this site and go and take multiple award-winning photos with your $5000 cameras and L series lenses?
@brendon1000You are right: people buy a reflex to take good photos, and that is impossible with this camera and this kit lens. So they dump this reflex and they are defrauded.
@VignesYou know nothing about photography. I'm sorry.
Marty4650: It might be irrational to expect cutting edge, ground breaking technology in the cheapest entry level cameras.
Once again, Canon has tweaked and improved a very successful product, and kept it at exactly the same price point. And that's all that really matters here. This may not be the camera for you or me, but it is the ideal camera to have available at Costco, Target or Walmart.
Any customer who was considering buying a 2015 Digital Rebel, will think that the 2016 Digital Rebel is a much better deal at the same price. And it probably will be, for that customer.
There are good reasons that Canon offers NINE different DSLRS types (yes, that's right nine models) at NINE different price points. They actually know what they are doing, and their market share proves it.
Enterprises like Canon or Apple are extremely environmentally unfriendly, producing waste products that become obsolete in a year.It's good to win money, but bad for anything else.
toni2: Another reflex without microAF and also with a bad kit lens.Canon, Nikon, this is all?
It's like selling a musical instrument that can not be tuned. Only $549.99!!!
And it's like selling a musical instrument wherein the cords creak (lens). And you will not change them because anyway that instrument can't be tuned. Only $549.99!!!
@DarnETPerhaps Nikon 3xxx or 5xxx have motor autofocus built in? Perhaps they have microAF?It's the same garbage.
