Potemkin_Photo: they need 50 1.2 FF lenses.
I'd use it for stills. They need to make it.
MikeManr: RIP Go Pro... With several competitors in the market, GoPro sales is weakened.
I knew 5 years ago their stuff was priced too high. They could have saved themselves some money and made me some by asking my advice.
they need 50 1.2 FF lenses.
Actually go pro needs to slash all prices 50% and maintain lines. Then they'd flush out all the cheap competition. They can hire me to manage this I'll only $200,000 per year to make this happen.
Luke Kaven: They had room to move on the price for this model. This is the same Sony sensor that is in the Pentax 645Z, at way under $10k.
They should just slash the price another 60% and make it up in volume sales. Almost every one and their dog has 6-7 crop cams in their closets and a couple FFs. This would allow them to add an MF to their collection.
abe4652: If a manufacturer can drop a price by 40% for a camera like this, it shows how overp[riced it was to begin with.
RedFox88: The 5Ds made the Hasselblad worthless.
I'll think differently after they price them at a grand a pop with a lense included.
Exactly. With FF cameras now offering MF quality. H-blad needs to trim it down to $1999 or so to remain competitive. Just how it is.
brownie314: The peak of the digital age is past us. Most people are happy with what their cp gives. All those sales of digital compacts are a thing of the past. Everyone who was once on 35mm film has switched to digital or decided they are not really interested in photography. Get ready for higher prices and longer product cycles.
Higher prices? Consumers are simply going to stick with what they already have then. Or they'll just head over to the Good Will Bidding website and pick up cams for a song. Good luck to the camera companies trying to raise the prices just because they can't innovate.
Flashback: A nice varied selection, but nothing stand out.
I was hoping for more 'pop', but it is early days yet.
Yeah, but I could get a refurb like new 6d for $800 and all the L lenses I want for the rest of my life plus years and years of photoshop cc subscription for just the entry price of this body and "kit lens"
I agree. The more I look at recent photos from so-called flagship cams, the more I'm convinced that we've reached the point of sufficiency a long time ago. Even a rebel in the right hands will produce pics like these.
Have a 90% off sale for xmas and these will sell like hotcakes!I'd pick one up for $1,200
Leica needs to make it medium format and half the price.
mpgxsvcd: I almost wonder if Sony was holding this information back just waiting for Canon to announce something. Then they could spring it on everyone the next day.
I never have had any interest in fixed focal length cameras but this one caught my attention. It made me think “Could I get away with a fixed focal length if everything else was so good?”. In the end it probably doesn’t fit my style of shooting to be worth the price but it did make me stop and think about it.
With the Canon announcements yesterday there wasn’t a single moment that I even considered placing an order for any of those cameras and all of those cameras were aimed directly at my style of shooting.
Yeah, those releases were pretty darn lame. Kodak times are here again for Canon.
Yup, they were garbage.
1. no ibis = fail2. too expensive
J A C S: "If you want to use EF and EF-S lenses, you need only pick up the $200 EF-EOS M adapter."
$49.99 at B&H.
Same garbage new garbage bags.Nothing to see here.
Tons o Glass 0 Class: OK Canon, you've announced your budget model. Now unveil the high-end model and let the mirrorless market-share competition begin!
destined for the 99 dollar bargain bin onlyway it will sell
Wedding photographer: Comparison with VM 21 mm / F 1,8 Ultron will be interesting.
cut price by 1/2 then add AF. nuff said.
yup the only way this thing will gain traction is if they package it with each camera gratis. Garbage otherwise.
