HaroldC3: I dont understand how Canon is still trying to sell this camera at a premium price. May be a good sign of things to come though in the US market.

consumer reports?! haha

In reply to:

Pandimonium: Wonders why the ISO 800 shot looks cleaner than the ISO 100. Also, why does Sony persist in getting crucial stuff wrong (like raw compression).

What will be impressive one day is if all higher ISOs look just like ISO 100. Right now they don't; they have noise. Until then, not impressed.

consumer reports is a joke.

Can't wait to snap this up at $250. It'll probably tank around XMAS.

Can't wait for this to hit the $250 bargain bin like the original EOS-M. Bring it!

SONY really needs to make the a7r III lossless RAW.

lambert4: This is a nice thought out piece of equipment that I would certainly use. I tend to carry mt speedlight sans bag since it is just another added bulk, but if I could have a decent modifier that also protected my gear? I will be watching for these locally.

maybe if they threw in the lumopro as a bonus

Many first tries are often stumbles.
Make this a pan-smartphone device which can take any phone and you might have a winner.
Drop it to $99 with zoom lense with constant 1.8 aperture too please. Thanks.

Potemkin_Photo: If SONY adopts Fuji's Kaizen philosophy, they are set to bust things wide open.

And like I said they need to do that to catch up to what their competition could do from day1. So you prefer Sony to release a dumbed down camera and release updates over few years?

Personally I prefer Sony's current way.
===
I never said that. i said that SONY could keep doing what it does now AND do kaizen to FURTHER improve its offerings dramatically.

What I meant was that Fuji keeps on releasing even improvements for very old cams. Sony tends to release & discard. If SONY were to keep making its cams even better, that'd make them even more of a force to be reckoned with.

In reply to:

Scottelly: This seems like Canon's answer to the Nikon D5500.

With only 1080p30 video and no IBIS, I'll stick with my Sony A65. The Nikon looks like a better deal to me, since it's $100 less and offers almost everything this Canon has, plus a bunch of functionality that Canons don't have. Frankly, I think I'd get the older Nikon D5300, which has Wi-Fi and does 1080p60 for $200 less. The only things these newer cameras seem to have that's new is the NFC and the touch screen. Of course this new Canon does have that status LCD on top, which is definitely a nice feature, which I do miss from time to time. It makes the camera like a more professional camera too.

This camera does have better/faster live-view focusing though, so it has two advantages over the Nikon D5500: better live-view focusing and the LCD display on top. The Nikons have 3.2" articulating displays though, while this camera has only a 3" display. Also, the Nikons can do 1080p60 (far less rolling shutter effect) instead of 1080p30.

Canon def needs to do a lot of work on AF and other features if it expects to continuing competing in the sub $1K DSLR starter market. It ain't 2005 anymore when the original digireb came out.

Potemkin_Photo: Stillborn at birth. Canon really needs to start class-leading with its offers instead of these warmovers. Better tracking like its peers, AF microadjust, IBIS, etc. Everybody already has a closet full of Rebels, so who would spend nearly a K for this?!

Pentax has always offered value for money. It's just a shame that AF isn't that great.

That's what they get for not putting EVFs in their cams.
