Cihangir Gzey: Amazed by the improvement (!) of Canon on these DSLR's.
80D outputs 1080p 30fps MOV movie file (as 8 year old 50D does with Magic Lantern). Very well done! Still no 4K.

A 4k capable computer for editing is less than the price of the camera.

Actually, no he is still wrong. D5 stinks, D500 for apsc is good, but A7RMK2 is god-like. Depends on the camera but his blanket statement is wrong.

Music Hands: I'm so disappointed it is lacking a 3 inch LCD flip out display, and 300 shot battery. Maybe I'll be interested in the next version... (sigh)

just wait for the comment "No touch screen again sony? Complete fail!"

Turbguy1: Powered by???

Someone ELSE can put a Li-Ion battery on their cornea...

well since many devices (watches for example) are powered by the sun I would assume this would also - that tech has been around over a decade

In reply to:

magneto shot: all patents should expire within 6 months if a minimum viable working product is not produced.

6 months?

Uh, you have NO IDEA how much R&D goes into producing a prototype.

Anyone try the beta?

How did it compare picture quality wise vs Capture One Pro (personal favorite for quality).

Thanks.

In reply to:

The Silver Nemesis: Opinion: DPR, stubborn as ever... Clearly, you disagree in your "overall appreciation" for the poor 80D with other reviewers.
1D-X II will have a Silver Award as well?! Because D5 has a "3D tracking that blows away the Canon AF...and, even if DR decreased, it is still better than 1D-X? I am quoting from your future review (😀😀😀), if applicable. That will be my second big "Ha-ha..." after 7D II review.

?

You lost me.

Siobhan A: What is shocking is how well the EOS-M is doing in Asia.
Last year in Japan as Sony saw their mirrorless market share plummet, the mostly neglected EOS-M took over some of that market share with a good size increase.
It goes to show how much support there is for Canon cameras in Asia, and how if Canon put a tiny bit of effort in to their mirrorless cameras, they could easily dominate some other companies. Same goes for Nikon.

source?

jhinkey: Great. I can sleep better at night now.
But seriously there are at least a 1/2 dozen other things that could be improved/fixed via firmware on the A7RII alone - where are those?

nice try

matthew saville: This is why Mirrorless is so necessary for the survival of Canon and Nikon. Cost-cutting at the factory. However you spec and manufacture it, a mirrorless camera will be more profitable than a DSLR. True superiority of one versus the other doesn't even matter to 50-75% of potential buyers; as Canon has proven with their inferior sensor technology over the last decade. It's all about marketing hype and profit margins.

So, bring out the mirrorless clowns, Canon and Nikon.

What the?

jkokich: I'm comparing the IQ of the Canon with the IQ of my Sony A3000, which cost me $260. The Canon is $1200? Canon fail.

Yikes he is right.

matthew saville: 1.) I'm glad that I'm not the only one who still feels the decades worth of difference in design experience that comes with handling a Canon or Nikon, compared to the Sony "work in progress" feel that is still present, though diminishing with each generation.

2.) I'm glad that we can finally put this dynamic range thing behind us, even as a Nikon shooter myself I'm getting sick of it. I hope Canon puts this new sensor tech in both the 5D mk4 and the 6D mk2. Enough is enough. I'm eager to finally be able to just say "ehh, pick whichever one feels better" when people ask me CvsN...

#2. = ?

Its among the worlds worse Dynamic range for the price and your putting it behind you? I own nothing but Canon but I wouldn't be impressed with the performance of the 80D sensor after spending $1200.

To each their own but I find this very strange.

Joe Ogiba: Wow, UHS-1 SD cards are so much more expensive compared to CFast cards for 4K cameras like the Canon XC10 ;)

http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1186716-REG/lexar_lc256crbna3600_pro_3600x_cfast_memory.html

BTW , why would anyone want to use a SDHC card in any 4K camera when SDXC cards are a dime a dozen.

and considering his current gear list shows he doesn't even own the camera - jhinkey the keyboard jockey strikes again with a negative comment.

Shameful.

Aroart: I will keep it short and simple.. Casey Neistat, has one of the biggest youtube following and has been using a 70d for vlogging the past few years. He tried the 80d and has complained about it and is now back to his 70d....

@Aroart your original post was a snide remark and loitokitok caught you. Don't attack him personally.

You got caught.
