ManInTime: Dont think i have ever seen such an average cameras being pushed and pushed again and again to the main page for no good reason. some heavy marketing job is being done here.

If all this publicity makes canon take notice and produces something decent before we all either move to fuji sony panasonic or die then its all worth it...

It s the apps stupid ;-). I ve tried a 930 for a week. I reeeeealy wanted it to work. It s not that the apps are not there, it is that they look awful and useability is like comparing ms dos to win7.

My advice, buy the cheapest win phone u can find. Try to replicate your experience disregarding sceeen size and speed. If u can live with it go spend. I made an expensive experiment with the 930. It tool me a week to decide to gp back to android and cost me 200 euros when i sold it used. Your experience might be different but lower your risk

the story of amature photographers is that of hostages.

Companies try to lock you into their system with their proprietary and non interoperable lens systems. Once in the trap experiencing innovation is at the pace of your captor. No matter how much his competitor tries, lens lock in means you'd be able to "taste" innovation once it comes to your form factor.

it reminds me of the mainframe age in computing..... and in case you are wondering yes, I am a Canon user.... for the past 20 odd years...

now imagine that I could use all my L glass with a Sony FF body (and have the work as they would on a Canon body).... Canon would have to keep innovating at a pace faster than anyone else (the same goes for nikon, pentax etc.).

Innovation would explode and DSLRs would become as easy as smarphones... there...

yaaaaaaawn

Another second place (or third?) for canon. Well done.

They are doing an excellent job in convincing their customers that they should dump their L glass while they still can and move to another platform. They are making it very easy to take the plunge

Hey Canon, Kodak is waiting you to share old-timers stories... maybe do a reunion.

Chronis: I've counted the word "disappointing"/"disappointed" five times....

Well done Canon.... replacing the 450 will have to wait...

What other shocking news have I learned?

that expensive L glass doesn't focus as well as crappy STM plastic .... WTF ?!?!!? I've been investing in L glass for a reason... to outlive any body for a couple of decades AND to make the so much awaited move to FF without having to change lens...

something is seriously wrong with Canon...

I bought my first digital camera in 2004... the first rebel followed if I remember quickly a few months after the first. I reckoned that they way prices and technologies evolve that within 3-4 years a decent FF circa 1-1.2K would hit the market....

not from canon... (no the 6D is not decent... it is just OK and an "if I have to" kind of camera). buying lens with a 3-4 years horizon is reasonable... well is't been more than 11 years and canon still hasn't delivered.

I'll agree with you in one thing. the L glass is worthless (or let's say didn't serve its purpose) given that by the time canon releases a decent FF for the masses, SONY will have long produced L grade glass..... guess which way many would be heading

my point is that I would expect the expensive lens one spends one's hard earned cash to work better ...

In reply to:

justmeMN: Canon forecasts that they will sell 6.4 million interchangeable lens cameras this year. Not bad, for a company that does everything wrong. :-)

Brand loyalty and recognition takes years to bild but it evaporates a h3ll of a lot faster....

Canon is doing everything it can to put even their most trusted customers in a position where they can't justify staying loyal (me included).....

Jogger: This would have been competitive 2 years ago.

Sleeping giants not need a good whipping in the back end... :-)

However the larger part of the photography market are too guilible and bought into "oh photography is about the brain behind the camera" to give a clear message to both canon and nikon that they wont buy crap...

How else can one explain such a closed systems market prevailing for so many decades...

Wow... The comparison shot against the 5d mk iii is both shocking and scary...

It is like comparing a p&s toy to a dslr. How low can Canon get?..

If they price th 6d at 650 and the 5d at 995 they may manage to retain some customers until they can respond with a proper ff dslr..

arcruz: I just sold my EOS 400D but still keep my lens kit; a Sigma 30mm f/1.4 and a Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8. I'm interested in these two cameras: the 70D and the old 7D What would you guys recommend? I usually do some landscape photography, portraits but in the near future I expect to learn about the timelapse technique. Video isn't really important for me so far. I would appreciate your opinions.

Regards,

Antonio.

ohhhh but I'm a Canon customer... from the past 20 years or so...

but I'm fed up with their complecentcy, lack of innovation but mostly fed up waiting for a decent body that would stand up to competition...

buy anything but Canon... their current line up is second best at least...

Chronis: I'm pleased to see that no Canon products made the top three. Serves them right if their sales tank during the busiest period of the year...

btw, I am a canon customer, waiting for the D750 of the A7mkII equivalent for more than 5 years... and it seems I'm going to be waiting as long...

by the of course, Sony will be selling the A7mk32 with bat-like ISO performance, 100 axis OSS (only in a blender could the camera produce a faint blur) but no worries... canon would be marketing the impossibility of impossible becoming possible (what part did you not get?)

Do or die Canon... do or die... personally I'd prefer do, but go either way and fast...

Well they are not that stupid... I hope...

In reply to:

bharath1234: first time i am planning to buy Dslr.
iam intrested in photos . videos are secondary for me.
i choosen the following models canon 600d, nikon 3200,5200,3300. these specifation totally confused me.
As per sample images nikon 3300 and canon 600d pics are good.even backround blur images also.
please suggest me your priority.. top 2 models.please mention the reason.it will be very useful for me.
finally i should enjoy with the dslr.

That s easy.. Stay away from canon and you d be fine.. Unless what u buy now is the last thing you ll ever buy (body wise.. Because by the time they relase a body worth upgrading to you ll be an old man living off state pention)

Canon is too far behind when ti comes to innovation and value ( speaking from experience... Just look at what they released at 1700 euros after five years.. U can buy ff nowadays with that money and a damn good one. Canon is just milking its lens collection dry.

. If you are an innovator and dont mind the risk go sony. If u want to balance value innivation and lens options go nikon..

Good luck and stay away from the impossible ;-)..

In reply to:

Chronis: exactly what Canon needed at this point... another expensive lens for those already invested in their system...

shows how out of touch they are, building trimmings for bodies that (given the choice) any sensible customer would have at the bottom of his list...

@ Shiftysdad

I'm not a hater. And no, it is not all good stuff :-)... not for canon anyway...

for years now I've been investing in L and L grade glass waiting to upgrade my ageing 450D for that reasonably priced (sub 1.5K) feature rich FF body...

But does Canon deliver? nahhh. where is the Canon that brought us the sub 1K, APS-C DSLR (remember the 300D)?

instead we get bit of this, bit of that, crippled the other.. and as long as we keep having an "it's all good stuff" attitude, we won't be getting anything "all of that" any time soon...
