Mtsuoka: Dunno why buy I got quite uncomfortable when I saw comments like:
"video qualities of the 5D3 alone worth $3500""clean ISO 12800 video alone worth $3500"
I mainly do still, and I got a feeling that the $3500 is mostly for video features..and I really wanted to like to 5D3
do you have the same feeling?
@ Gothmoth as regards to your Mercedes analogy ....
If you consider the 5D3 to be a high end camera, I wouldn't compare it to any normal Mercedes... I would compare it to a Formula 1 Car ... And those only carry ONE seat!.
Moreover I would say that a spare seat in a car means More Room in the car, and that would translate to additional Memory; The video function would more be like a high end car stereo: an important accessory but not THE most important one.
First of all I know that the 5D3 is a great improvement on the 5D2. Infact I own the 5D2 and I've already ordered the 5D3. At least I'm glad to LEARN that I'm not paying that much extra for something I do not need. I always thought that a substantial part of my investment went into its video capabilities.
@ Petka who wrote:"you are not really paying for it any more than you are for the hundreds of customizable tweaks you never adjust in your camera, but do not complain that there are adjustments which you do not know exist and which you can not tweak because you do not understand what they do" Who are you to say what I know and don't know, and what I adjust and don't adjust? Just because I do only stills it doesn't mean I point and shoot does it? It doesn't make me less of a photographer than you.
At least everyone agrees that the 5D3 is primarily a Photographers Camera; the video option is " a little cheap extra."
I TOTALLY AGREE with you. I long for a camera aimed photographers (vs videographers). Why merge high quality photography with high quality videography? I think most people either specialise in one or the other. It's only journalist who really find this hybrid system usefull. But what about the rest of us? I feel it is a huge RIP OFF being forced to pay so much extra for features I'm not going to use.
Joas Souza: I CAN'T BELIEVE THAT IS HAS ONLY 18MP. EVERYBODY WAS EXPECTING 32MP. WELL, NIKON STILL AHEAD, UNFORTUNATELY.
WE DON'T NEED MORE MP. WE NEED LESS NOISE AND HIGHER IQ. SEEMS LIKE A STEP IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION TO ME.
