"Auto ISO is available in manual exposure mode but the camera won't let you use exposure comp to specify how bright the image should be."

Panasonic's stance on Auto ISO is just baffling. They could do it right easily but they choose not to.

I am disappointed. I was expecting at least F4.0-F8.1.

It almost sounds like he has never used a camera from Canon's competition. He appears to be oblivious to what is available from other manufacturers.

That picture really makes him look smug. I hope Canon finds a way to be a leader in the industry again. I miss the days when Canon announcements were always a breath of fresh air.

How long can they record continuous video for? I would like to replace a GoPro with the 18-50 camera.

FodgeandDurn: 18-50, when I'm not shooting wildlife/sport that's the focal length I cover with 3 lenses on my mirrorless. If it's sharp, for shooting during the day I'd struggle to justify bringing a CSC and 3 lenses around with me instead of this.

At 18mm I'd also happily use it for a bit of astrophotography. I know people bang on about larger sensors for astro, but 99% of a pleasing image is post processing, the next most important thing is controlled CA in the corners etc... Lonelyspeck.com got some amazing astro results from the RX100, so I can only surmise that this would be excellent too, perhaps on a hiking holiday where you find yourself amongst mountains/trees/water+stars.

Astrophotography requires HUGE focal lengths. What you are referring to is night scapes. Both are cool but they require vastly different cameras.

F6.9 is the new F4.5. Apparently physics doesn't apply to these cameras.

I wish Interlaced video had never been invented. I am shocked to still see it around in 2016.

20 megapixels @ F6.9 with a 1/2.3" sensor. Take that Physics!

Despite our complaints and valid reasons why Canon cameras are inferior to everything else they continue to sell. It just baffles as to why that is. However, I have no doubt that enough people will buy this camera for Canon to justify making a 90D with mediocre upgrades and a significant price bump in the years to come.

Is Canon seriously bragging about finally putting 1080p @ 60 FPS video in their cameras in 2016?

I get it this camera meets the needs of most users. The problem is that it costs $1200 without a lens and $1800 with a “kit” lens. That is a very tough sell when every other manufacturer offers so much more for so much less.

The title does a really good job of making you want to click on the link. To then let you down tremendously when you actually read that it doesn't do 4K video at a useful frame rate.

I think I would rather it not have 4K video at all than have 4K @ 15 FPS. I wouldn't want to ever accidentally record anything at 15 FPS.

Nice camera.

Finally Canon is back in the game. This is a camera that offers features that almost no other camera has like 4K @ 60 FPS video. Now I just hope that this continues with their lower price models.

This is a good day for Canon.

On article Sony introduces new XQD and SD cards (57 comments in total)

The most important thing is how much do they cost. If they are charging $1000 per card then they might as well not exist at all.

For anyone asking for anything greater than 4:2:0 can you show me a real world example where 4:2:2 or 4:4:4 has a distinguishable difference from 4:2:0 for video?

Don't even bother showing me a test chart. I want real world examples.

The more important spec is that it has to conform to BT.2020 color representation. There are some cameras that do 10 bit right now. However, I am not aware of any cameras that can record according to BT.2020 color representation at the moment.
