On GoPro announces Hero4 lineup article (79 comments in total)

There are a couple of things that some of the articles have not made clear.

First the Hero 4 Black does not have a screen on the back at all. It also doesn’t have a battery door there now. Instead the battery door is on the bottom which means you can’t change the battery without taking it completely out of its housings.

This is a HUGE oversight by GoPro. The battery life on their cameras is nothing short of terrible. Changing the batteries is going to be a very significant problem now. With the GoPro 3 I could just leave the battery door off and easily swap batteries without taking it out of the case. It also helped cool the camera because they overheat very easily.

I would rather have seen a faster aperture lens than 4K @ 30 FPS. The higher frame rates of the new camera will make low light shooting even worse than it already is.

Why do we need a touch screen if we have a perfectly good App to view and control the camera?

This will be the first Panasonic camera that the average consumer knows about.

White is the new Black.

Thank goodness. I was beginning to think that Canon was on their way out. This changes everything.

No GH4 support! That stinks!

justmeMN: Canon estimates that, this year, they will sell 9.5 million compact cameras, and 7.0 million DSLRs. Not bad, for a company that does everything wrong. :-)

Next year is what I am worried about for them. That number will start dropping drastically next year if they are solely dependent on DSLR sales.

mpgxsvcd: Dpreview should interview this guy again with the exact same questions after showing him the comments and see if his answers are any different.

If he wants to save his company he will make time to read them. Those comments tell him exactly what they are doing wrong and how to fix it. I don’t see many other people posting negative comments about the ones I made. They sure are posting negative ones about his interview though.

I keep thinking that Canon is going to shock the world by suddenly announcing this new REVOLUTIONARY camera that they have been working on for most of a decade. This interview is making me think they have already announced that camera and it is called the 7D MKII. They really seemed to think that it is light years ahead of everything else. That really is disappointing.

What is really freaking ironic is that this guy can basically laugh in our faces, mock us, and the 7D MKII will still sell quite well. However, it will sell well forever. If they wait another 5 years to make a minor upgrade to it they will find that all of their customers have gone elsewhere.

Canon appears to think they have hit a Major League Home Run. When in reality they showed up to the wrong stadium and bunted in a Tee Ball Game.

R.I.P Canon

I don’t think this guy has ever actually seen any camera other than a Canon.

A once proud company just scored an “Own goal”.

I have to hand it to the Dpreview interviewer. He asked all of the questions we wanted to know. However, now that I have heard their response I almost wish that I had never heard this interview at all. If the rest of Canon is as delusional as this guy then they are doomed.

After 5 years of not listening to their customers he makes a joke about it. That is just pathetic but it explains a lot. They simply have an old school Japanese mentality that once you earn a certain reputation you have earned it for life. That everyone will also respect them for what they once were.

Their reputation has about 1 more camera cycle before people give up on Canon entirely or just simply stop buying new camera equipment all together.

I have a feeling this guy has never read anything on Dpreview before.

I am starting to think that the Canon engineers might truly be the problem. They just can’t get the job done.

Direct link | Posted on Sep 24, 2014 at 19:37 UTC as 105th comment

I have a feeling this guy is no longer employed by Canon. Not because they fired him. I actually think they were glad he did the interview so they wouldn’t have to do it. This guy probably quit two weeks ago and before he left they asked him to do one final thing for them. Jump on the sword, brother.

“Canon sensors are the best at everything”

Then why did you use a Sony sensor in your G7X?
