ZAnton: Please, correct the name"F4.5.6 G SSM" to "F4-5.6 G SSM"Concerning lenses: Sony sells non IS lenses at the price of Canon/Nikon IS/VR lenses. Inbody IS gives at best - 2 stop, usually 0,5-1 Stop, whereas optical IS - at least 3 stop. So I don't think it is wise to get Sony at least at current prices.
Oh yeah image stabilization definitely reduces maximum aperture. That's why when canon releases IS versions of their lenses like the 70-200mm they have such smaller maximum apertures. Think for less than 5 seconds about that comment. And with all this flack on how image stabilization reduces corner sharpness. Name a working professional who gives a crap about how the corner sharpness of their photo is reduced when they use IS. It is so irrelevant to people who actually count on their lenses to make money.
califleftyb: You must understand the context of Paul Hansen's photo and how it was taken. First of all Hansen was not alone in the street and encountered this funeral, rather there was a mob of photographers collected together and the funeral procession arranged and then directed toward the photographers - that is how it worked in Gaza, photographers are not "free agents" wandering alone, they have Hamas "minders" who strictly control the situation. That is also the reason Hansen was using a 16mm lens, and why there are multiple light sources.
If you doubt this then you don't understand the competitive world of international news photography. Read this story critical of Hansen and the mob of photographers that create these types of images for "emotional content" that may or may not necessarily exist. Google prisonphotography.org +brouhaha +"paul hansen" (warning for content) you will understand how this Gaza shot was taken, and why it is more propaganda then news.
@califletyb I'm assuming by the way you are reacting that you have much maturing to do. Don't worry, you can do it, for I have faith in you.
And yet it still doesn't have a pop-up flash... Useless... And it probably has no built in pop-art filters either :/
Jan Kritzinger: Nex + Eye-fi is infinitely better than this.
Hmmmm and a nex with an eye fi and lens = over a $1000 vs $299 hmmmmm...
Why does it seriously have so many megapixels...
But hey you've got to admit that the most exciting thing here is the new lens caps ;)
$1808? Can you spell rip off?
OldArrow: Nice work, congrats! Pity, those unique photography masters have visited you too, and left their .5's and 1's... ;)
Haha thank you :)
50 MP DSLR, 10-1000mm lens, f/1.2. image stabilization ISO to 204,800 boost to 819,200 Weight, 3 pounds, built in flexible pop-up flash with 100m guide number, and a 4 inch screen, waterproof, and built entirely out of carbon fiber!
Can it be a cigarette?
Would you choose this camera over the 4 year-old 5D Mark II (today is 4th anniversary)? And what price do you think this camera should have been? I personally believe $1500 would be appropriate. And I think Canon should come out soon with the 6DX with an added burst rate, better AF system, 100% viewfinder, auto LCD brightness adjustment, and at least 1 CF slot.
Nathaniel George Weir: 200-3200 ISO Range with 6400 Boost (according to specs sheet) haha give me a break! I'll stick with my 5D Mark III thank you very much.
from Dpreview stats table 200-3200 ISO probably the higher and lower ISOs boosts
fixed lens... I don't even know what to say about that...
wow... What would've been truly epic is if they made that sensor 2 megapixels for ridiculously lowlight video.
200-3200 ISO Range with 6400 Boost (according to specs sheet) haha give me a break! I'll stick with my 5D Mark III thank you very much.
It looks like one of those cheepo $300 800-1600mm telephoto lenses from bower haha!
Eugene CH: Yes, an updated manual exists online but this is not useful for peoples who carried the Canon 7D without taken a computer, isn’t? And to print us 292 pages, in A4 or US format is not a solution. Canon, in my opinion, should update the manual, which had been delivered with the 7D not only for actual owners but also for the next purchasers! Somebody who purchases NOW a new 7D, hopefully already with firmware 2.0.0, will receive in the box, I hope, a new manual.
Apparently, Canon has already designed a new manual for the 2.0 update of the 7D and is shipping them with new and current 7D's.
I discovered minor problem (typo) while trying out the RAW Imaging Processing and resizing an image. When the file is being saved, the camera displays, "Saving edited movie", rather than displaying, "Saving edited image". It is a minor typo and does not affect the saving process. It's not a big deal, but it is rather distracting. I understand Canon makes typos on the foreign language settings on new cameras and later updates them to fix the typos, so I wonder if they will figure it out later and fix it. I don't have this problem on my Mark 3.
Wouldn't call that alpen glow.
