Zerg2905: 1. Muahahahahahaha! 2. Come on, Canon, 1000 FPS, full card no matter the size RAW buffer, and ISO 1638400 or nothing! Cheers! :):) + :).
Right. A bigger card called SSD it is, then. Cheers! :)

Henry M. Hertz: well it´s simple.
there are only so many amateur morons who buy a new camera every 2-3 years. :)
the majority doesn´t see why they should buy a 700D over a 450D or 550D (insert your nikon or sony models).not for 10x15cm prints or facebook uploads.
so the market is saturated.. good is good enough for the majority.the few people on forums like dpreview doesn´t count overall.it´s not even 1% of the customers.
people normaly don´t buy a new printer just because there is a new model.they use their printers until they break.i guess the same applies to cameras.
today most who want a DSLR have a DSLR. it´s always the same.... at one point the market is saturated.
and to be honest... improvements are marginal and only visible (or important) for geeks.
Yep. Cheers! :)
DotCom Editor: I've noticed that Canon's DSLR innovation and market momentum have both been cut in half.
Oh, sure, the 200-400 is quite common... Cheers! (...)
Zerg2905: Only Gold? This camera deserves a rare element not yet found on Earth. This is The First and (probably not) The Last, The Alpha and Omega of all cameras. Ever. And ever. A-men! Hallelujah! Cheers, and cheers again! :) :) :)
Right. Cheers! :D :D :D
historianx: Another Gameboy console posing as a camera. Pass.
Thing is, I still need more than 22 Mp for my MP-E 65 lens (for the crop). So this Sony camera is somewhat interesting in this respect. But, to buy a just a sensor for 2000+EUR is a bit too much... Even if I can afford it, no problem. I simply don't care about the other specs. So Canon folks should indeed do more for me than the 1200D and put that prototype beast on the market. Cheers! :)
gdfthr73: I still think these are the Ugliest (notice the capital U) cameras since the Pentax K-01 (maybe Uglier) but not as ugly as the Hasselblad Lunar. Size wise they are not that much better than a d600 or 6d. IQ is great I'm sure but man what a dog!
I had a Zenit 12. Unbreakable. Died of old age... I still have it, however, and I plan to resuscitate it. Probably after I will retire... Cheers! :)
@ric63: aaaaa... Well, Canon has brought an interesting compact lately. And the 200-400 f/4 with built-in 1.4X converter. And, the digital photography world, as we know it today... Don't think Canon is dead. Please. Read the 2013 financial statement. Compare it with Sony. And btw, I have a PC at home that can simply crush ANY console... Cheers! :)
That's for sure for Sony. What about the customer? Cheers! :)
Only Gold? This camera deserves a rare element not yet found on Earth. This is The First and (probably not) The Last, The Alpha and Omega of all cameras. Ever. And ever. A-men! Hallelujah! Cheers, and cheers again! :) :) :)
sean lee: come on canon....Is this all you can do?For this size, at least view finder should included.It is same size as Fuji x100 or XE2 with lens........I know for zoom lens like that, it is still smaller than other lens.... but.....
Good to see Howard back again. It was pretty boring in the comments land. Cheers! :) :) :) P. S.: and this time I agree. With him. This looks like a proper camera.
Good initiative. They had to do this, there was no other way to further push the m4/3 in the "photo" direction. So the name of the game is VIDEO (let's bet: the first 4K "affordable" FF DSLR will come from...)! Cheers! :)
CameraLabTester: "A typical DSLR has around 120 screws of 11 different sizes."
This cadaver had only 29 screws of just three different sizes.
THAT says a LOT of what's going on inside those R&D labs... they deliver.
Other brands just re-badge, clone and tweak.
He he, right, but let's go to a war zone - A7R vs 1DX. 1DX can, probably, stop a bullet and save your life. Literally. So size and number of screws matters. Cheers! :):):) P. S.: there is a rumour regarding a possible high end Canon camera with kevlar body instead of Mg alloy. Interesting! I wonder if they can do that.
Cool! Cheers! :)
zodiacfml: I'd rather burn money on a Zeiss Otus and a D800e.
Right. Use a credit card instead. Cheers! :)
Dvlee: This feature could be popular with narcissistic teen-aged girls, but not a $350. Those that might find this feature appealing are those who prefer using their cell phone for taking pictures and do not want to carry around a separate camera.
More mature or advanced users who are interested in making good photos, might consider the selfies embedded into the picture to be an intrusion. Remember the old point and shoot film cameras that embedded a time stamp on the negative? I can't tell you, as a darkroom technician, how many people came to me requesting I crop out the time stamp.
And I bet you, that as soon as this was announced, someone started writing an app for doing this on dual camera cell phones.
This is a gimmicky feature for a niche market.Since it requires additional hardware that drives up the cost, I don't think this will be popular enough to become a standard feature in P&S cameras .
Some people might like this , but for me it's a pass.
Howard, I know you are not posting in full anonymity: if my research is right and if the tracking was correct, you have a website and a rather nice portfolio. Yes, the real name is different, but this is not relevant. So people can find you, if they want to. Have fun and cheers! :)
ManuelVilardeMacedo: Inane. If this is all Canon can come up with to counter smartphones' rising sales, I fear for the future of their camera division...
A-ha, got it, you are right, this looks indeed like the right way to use quotation - I think for "drop it" (and maybe "subject") I did this in the wrong manner, but not for "dialogue". On top: this is only for English, or it is rather universal (a rather rhetorical question, I will search for the answer myself)? Because my intention regarding "drop it" was to say "...and, so to speak, I would encourage you to stop this... (="drop it")". Thank you and Cheers! :)
Possible. And if yes, I do apologize (although I cannot spot the error - these look well placed to me). Cheers! :)P. S.: please define quotation marks, maybe my English skills are not that good and I might understand something else.
Gentlemen, please "drop it". This type of "dialogue" does not increase the value of the arguments already put on the table. And there is more: the "subject" is just a piece of plastic and metal, and not the salvation of our planet. A planet with Canons, Nikons, Olys, Panas, Sonys (and Chers), but also a planet with right and wrong concepts that are killing people on the streets. Literally. Wish you a better 2014. Cheers! :)
plasnu: LOL. This is a typical ultra strange product from a big company based on the marketing research results. A few months ago, I remember Canon was using rainbow color to promote their first N concept camera without even knowing the rainbow is the iconic color for the minority against the big power like CANON. So cynical. I love to see N concept Powerpoint presentation materials, which should be full of jokes and myths!
Sorry, but they do. This product is the unfortunate result of such MR combined with a debatable "go green" business decision. My opinion. Cheers! :)
