On More things we found cut in half (CP+ 2015 edition) article (139 comments in total)

Pat Cullinan Jr: What's up with these lenses? Have they been cut in half or something?

I thought so.

What did they do with the other halves? Could I have them?

5d3user: SOB, its got just as many pixels as 5diii, as many autofocus points as the 7d mark 1 and is cheaper than both. this is rediculous.

A clear and balanced post.

MartinB77: The 760D is really a nice one. Top-LCD, new sensor, new dial, WiFi, somewhat new AF - all o.k..

But personally, as 550D I want a much better viewfinder! I really get sick with this small, dark and slightly misaligned pentamirror viewfinder.

So canon - please be nice and hand over the 80D :-)

Over time, we become our cameras. Like, I'm still a Leica IIIg.

Wha'?! Me pupule?

Drat! Here's another camera I just have to have.

I'll shoot a couple thousand photos, get jaded, and misplace it under a mound of Sunday supplements. Like I did with the T2i.

Sdaniella: Whilst Samsung's NX1 is the first affordable consumer 4k APS-C (near Super35mm Cine sized sensor) mirrorless digital camera (great for budding 4k Cinematographers) ... with fast AF

This new Canon EOS 760D serves as the first affordable consumer HDR APS-C (near Super35mm Cine sized sensor) touch-screen capable AF for budding Cinematographers wanting easy-access (minimal or no post processing) for Dual-Level Exposure for HDR CINE = like a beginners version of pro industry ARRI ALEXA CINE cams minus the expense, weight, heat, bulk, and conventional MF lens methods ... brings to the everyday shooter 'normalized' HDR CINE! (@ 720p = managable filesizes for global online sharing)

nice!

it's a preview of what's to come in higher models, like EOS 80D? (HDR 1080p) 5DMkIV? (HDR 4K, HDR 1080p), etc
EOS C-series: 1D or C#00
and likely Powershots, too

and no need to resort to ML (Magic Lantern hack), although I'm sure there will be plenty of new features buried yet to unlock

+lots o' lenses!

I admire the tone of comity.

Yes, IQ is becoming the great equalizer.

I buy every camera that comes out with a viewfinder. ;)

Now that IS interesting! 13EV is not to be sneezed it. I wonder what you could get out of a Sony sensor with interleaving.

"Just replaced the Daylight RAW images with a new, sharper set. The original set did not have anti-shock (electronic first curtain shutter) mode turned on. The new set does. That and some careful focusing delivered much sharper images than the original set that caused a few complaints."

So maybe that accounts for the unsharpness.

Thank you, Sam

I'm not getting this. They're the same images. Surely it's not a matter of applying anti-shock or careful focusing to RAW files.

What was done to make blurry images sharp?

The boat photo became much sharper. Same image.

HDR = high-dynamic-range imaging.

Haven't they figured it out yet that enthusiasts will pass on cameras without viewfinders. And no clip-ons, please.

Someone please tell them.

I see an unmistakable difference now. Much sharper. That's a relief.

What, do they force us to use anti-shock mode?

What does focusing have to do with it?
