There is a Samsung phone with this "feature" out there but I cannot remember the model name... But it really doesn't matter, this is not a camera for DPR readers... Cheers! :)
And the results are predictable. One interesting matter is related to the "price element": the "best" also must be... "cheap" (relatively). Otherwise, I will stick with my initial opinion: the best lens of 2013 is the Canon 200-400 (because the manufacturing capabilities must be exceptional in order to have such an exceptional product available - again, this is not an "easy" lens, from any perspective).DSLRs: I agree with the result. I would, however, like to see a better mainstream Canon APSc in 2014, sensor wise (again, related to design and manufacturing, not just design, because the dual pixel is formidable for video, but not quite spectacular for photographic work). Otherwise, the 70D is a very good product. Otherwise...Cheers! :)
There is not much of a contest here because "best" looks subjective. To me, the "best" technological breakthrough seems to be the Canon 200-400, and I am not talking just optics here. This lens is the most "advanced" from any angle, and probably a pain to manufacture. Cheers! :)
Ian SS: I owned the EOS-M before but was very disappointed and sold it. Even with faster focus, I think this comes a little too late! With so many mirrorless on the market, Canon is way behind, if Canon thinks that they can protect their DSLR market by making an inferior product, think twice!
"Canon 5DIII not so good compared with D800/D600"... Stop using amphetamines, please - these things are very bad for your health. I apologize for being brutal, but I hoped that this stupidity (or nonsense) went away. As a Canon user, my 5DIII with my 24-70 & 70-200, both Mk 2 versions, gave my Nikon friends headaches. And I will say again: MY FRIENDS! Yes, many of them have Nikons, and I respect them a lot for their photographic skills and beautiful results. I also experience headaches because 36 MPs would be very useful for my MP-E 65 macro lens... Bottom line: please stop the nonsense, the "not quite good compared with" part. Cheers! :)
So?! Cheers! :)
This happened because I have missed the plane to HK. Cheers!!! :) :) :)
Koemans: Will this be it..? canon's new marketing strategy? Tons of features the more you pay for it..?
Nah, probaly not.. i guess they will release 20 more 'dumbed down' bodies compared to its competitors and ask hundreds of euros extra for the sake of product diversification.
Expect another body that has the same features as canon's bodies 6 years ago ( 3 fps.. d'oh) only slightly more megapixels (BRAND NEW SENSOR!) and some more marketing rubbish slangs like "Lightest camera ever!".. All this for exactly the same price back then since nothing ever changes at canon.
as a 7d user, its time to jump away from this sinking ship into sony's utopia.
Jump! Cheers! :)
PhotoKhan: The 100D can be discerned in the original news site, in the photo with the red box around the logo area. Don't look directly at the box center but rather let your vision wander around it and you will see it.
So, it's a 100D in white...Way to innovate, Canon.
Next: "L" lenses in lilac.
You have to admit that dark camo green would be cool... Cheers! :)
Richt2000: Canon have lost it. Just boring these days.Then they do release something exciting it takes 2 years to become available or it is so overpriced its for corporate purchasers.
Overtaken by Nikon and Sony.
I have been Canon for 20 years, next camera will be Sony or Nikon, and a complete system change too.
Goodbye Canon, may your photocopiers and video cameras keep you afloat.
Good. I hope there are hundreds of thousands like you, so Canon will have to change the "safe" strategy. Cheers! :)
Now, Canon, please quickly release that "retro" 50 mm f/0.95. With EF mount, AF, IS & weather sealing. And with a terrible chrome finish. Cheers... :)
A Clearaudio Statement from Nikon. In design and price. The difference is that in the Clearaudio's case the limiting factor is your ear, and eventually the audio gear associated, and not the turntable itself. My take. Cheers! :)
tkbslc: Canon must be doing something right if the fanboys of other systems get this riled up.
Yep, and it was about time. Cheers! :)
Be afraid, be very afraid... Cheers! :)
"Mirrorless" medium format or nothing. From Sony. Cheers! :)
Mirrorless Crusader: What a waste. Canon has become virtually irrelevant and their decision not to announce even a single new product this holiday season firmly cements them in last place among camera makers. It's only a matter of time until they spin off their imaging division and sell it to Sony or something.
Yes, Canon will soon turn to be...Nikon! But wait, Nikon "launched" the D610, soon to be known as the "camera of the century". Cheers! :)
Ostrich Testicle leather (As Michael Reichman would say) anyone? Cheers! :)P. S.: Japan only.
Beavis, Butthead, The Legend continues... Cheers! :)... + :) :) :) :) etc.
Digitall: An excellent innovation, which involves painstaking research and technology that only a year later it was possible to reach this level of evolution, a breakthrough in the world of photography. Still say that Nikon is not being innovative..."At the heart of the image".
Ha ha, good one, sounds familiar from the marketing perspective. Cheers! :)
Zerg2905: These are the funniest comments I have seen so far.Canon, Nikon, carry on: oil spill, exploding batteries, anti-personel viewfinders with splinters, blind AFs, rubber cover failures, water in the engine (electronics) compartment on "weather sealed cameras", obsolete new sensors, dinosaur-like ergonomics, wrong features, compatibility issues, Breguet-like prices for standard merchandise - we have a lot to laugh upon. And, if this makes the life spicy, so be it. Cheers! :)
And probably many others. Cheers! :)
Sdaniella: Pentax K-3:Max 8.3 fpsUp to 22 RAW shots = (Max 2.65s timespan covered)Up to 60 JPEG Large (★★★) = (Max 7.23s timespan covered)
Canon EOS 7D:Max 8.0 fpsUp to 23/25 RAW (Large/Fine) shots = (Max 2.88s to 3.13s timespan covered)Up to 110/130 JPEG (Large/Fine) = (Max 13.75s to 16.25s timespan covered)Up to 17/17 RAW+JPEG (Large/Fine) = (Max 2.12s timespan covered)
the longer the timespan covered with many more shots, the better...
110/130 vs 60, means 7D has 83% to 117% more hi-fps shot coverage than K-3,
13.75s/16.25s vs 7.23s, 7D has 90% to 125% more timespan coverage, than the K-3.
~ double the coverage
Come on, I own a 7D, it is a very good camera, but it is no longer the King of the Hill... Use simple logic: it is 3-4 years old, and that's a lot in the digital age.Until the next King of the Hill will arrive (=EOS 7D Mk II), if it will arrive, this Pentax looks great! I will certainly stay with Canon (as I have a set of incredible lenses), but hey, for people looking for a new and decent DSLR this Pentax will do the job.
