Hi! Do you know if Epson P-7000 will read the raw files from the new canon eos 1d x?
Photodog7: To make a unbiased comment due to the fact I like both systems, it just seems like a long wait only for this. It does not seem like canon really made a good move. On one note, they seemed to address a lot of improvements photographers were looking for, but It seems like the camera is only a small step in front of nikons d3s which will be replaced soon. Then canon is bragging about the pixel size of 7 microns, and about the fact that it is 1.3 microns bigger than the 1d mark 4 and .5 bigger than the 5d mark 2. Sad to say that even though it is a few less megapixels, the D3s has 8.5 micron size, which is much larger. I also feel they just abandon their sports shooters by making only a full frame model. It is really important to have the reach that a 1.3 sensor can provide. Sorry, don't want to upset anyone unless there is something I don't know, Trying to evaluate why this was worth the wait, Despite the fact yes there is SOME nice new features with the camera.
Marco Boerner: EvlBert,
It is understandable why Canon did not include GPS devices in their cameras. Main reason is that there are several countries that do not allow you to bring any electronic with GPS capabilities, starting with phones, gps maps, and cameras. Having GPS included would men Canon could not sell this model to those markets, they would have to create a second series w/o the gps, what would result in higher prices. Also journalists and photographers working on those countries would have to get a different camera too. And on top of that, several government agencies where a camera like this is needed do not allow GPS, especially the military. There are several reasons not to include a GPS device. And on top of that it would increase the size of the camera, even if it's only a little, it would increase the costs, not only for the parts but also for GPS license/usage. There is still a fair amount of photographers working in a studio or fixed location who just don't need GPS.
