nofumble: Canon will loose money on this one for sure. It is smaller than the standard Rebel but few mm difference is not going to sway any buyer's mind. By end of the year, you will see a 50% price-drop like the EOS-M.
I will not consider this type of camera until Canon add an EVF (mirror got to go). Meanwhile, my money is going to the other brands who offer smaller size, flexibility, and better low light image quality.
It's clear you don't like Canon, so why come here to bash? Be happy with your expensive Fuji cameras.
Mikhail Tal: Simon if you based your review choices in part from what you read in the comments and forum, why do you make fun of people who tell you what they want to have reviewed? Saying "Okay we'll check with you next time we want to review something" is being unnecessarily rude to one of your customers, and it discourages the same people whose feedback you claim to be looking for from giving it in the first place.
I don't think Simon writes reviews (anymore). His name is not on the review. You should direct your comments to the reviewer.
PeakAction: I have now officially lost count of how many Rebel models there are.
You know someone in the factories? My money is only 2 in production the current models: T5i and SL1.
Tom Nokin: It is shocking to read how ignorant so many commentators are. Of course the most expensive photos were expeted to be art. What did you expect baby eyes and hawaian sunsets?Gursky has provided very powerful artistic interpretations. One should check out his photos and read something about the artist before posting ignorant postings.
Some of these 10 have trouble falling into the "art" category.
mpgxsvcd: I could post the exact same images in my gallery and they would get shredded in the challenges section. All of them are mediocre at best.
Some of these photos are not about how good or inspiring the image is but who took it, who it is of or the eccentricity of the buyer. There is more to a value of an item that how pretty it is.
Something is only worth what someone is willing to pay for it.
RedFox88: "graduates" have such pie in the sky, lofty ideas until the reality of the business work hits them.
It's hard to be a start up these days with big business against you. Much harder than in decades past. The mom and pop stores are disappearing because of buyers frequenting big box stores. Just like Canon and Nikon are the "big box" giants that any camera company would have to compete again. Not easy at all.
"graduates" have such pie in the sky, lofty ideas until the reality of the business work hits them.
new boyz: welcome back to the game, canon.
Except they are now and have been the top dog in camera sales, so where did they go?!
We now know what Canon has been working on these past few years while continuing to warm up the 18 MP design. They are always in the top for number of patents filed.
santamonica812: A shame about the SD cards. Difficult for me to just toss the $1,500 USD I have in CF cards.
It is my imagination, or does the 70D look like a majority of the most significant improvements will be of interest primarily to those shooting video?
$1500 in CF cards? Are they 512 MB and 1 GB? :) My first CF card was 1GB and cost $190 9 years ago. They are cheap now unless you prefer to buy the costly brands thinking they give slightly better write/read speed and the question is always can the camera take advantage of higher speeds or is your only gain in transferring files to your computer where does 4 minutes vs. 6 minutes really make a difference? Not for me.
Frederik Paul: Could it be that Canon finally got their things straight? I'm curious about the noise performance.
ISO3200 image has noise removal detail smearing, it's not "clean" at all. But it's JPG from pre-production unit likely.
rb59020: Ordered mine in black from B&H this afternoon as it is @ $399.00
From the artical:■Excellent image quality in JPEG and Raw■Fast autofocus■10fps full-res burst mode■1cm Macro mode allows extreme closeups■Raw files contain a lot of extra detail in both highlights and shadows■Dedicated Movie record button■Built-in sensor-shift and pixel-track shake reduction
But still just a "74"?
Must of been the missing hot shoe. :-(
And 1cm macro focusing is very common.RAW provides to more detail and highlights for every camera.G15 does high burst rate too and has a hot shoe.
ezradja: Probably it's just me, but I find the selections not very good anymore. Probably because of new breeds of serious compact camera such as x100, rx100, g1x etc even pentax q or nikon 1 are more interesting to me these days...
Hmm, are you after good photos or "cool new tech gadgets"?
Nikonworks: Most retailers hold a straight forward 'Inventory Sale', of which this article clearly seems to be, except the straight forward part.
DPReview please take notice:When I was a kid 'slot cars' were the newest and 'biggest' thing.Stores opened up just with slot car race tracks. It was fantastic but very short lived because the market place became overloaded with slot cars and accessories to the point the kids could not keep up with the market.The whole market folded like a deck of cards.
Of late, you, the editors are doing the same thing here at DPReview.You have too many Final Reviews to post before listing 'Old cameras under $1000'. You are reaching in all directions, phones, tech, cameras, etc.You are making this site unwieldly and soon ambiguous.
You better get together and focus on your mission.
At the same time you can discuss formally thanking me for my 'Real World Samples' suggestion.
Aren't we high on ourselves?!
g7star: Buy Now link needs to be corrected for Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1. Thank you for the article.
Michael Foran: Can you employ a filter that removes all the bitchy, off topic, and misleading comments from brand fanboys?
thought that's what those moderators were for?
kinglau711: More importantly, do not forget our right to delete our profile !
I don't post here anymore since you can't delete your post and your profile !
But you ARE posting on here, in news comments!
And I doubt you'll ever get the option to delete your profile on here, facebook doesn't allow it but they allow "deactivation" of profiles. And DPR allows you to delete an OP original post if no one replies to it within a few minutes I think.
You'll never be allowed to delete a post or remove all your posts with your profile because said posts are intertwined with lots of other posts.
Does this version of LR support non-dSLR video files such as .MOV ? LR 4 doesn't.
It feels like I just gave Adobe $79 a few months ago.
