On Interview: Canon's Chuck Westfall on the new XC10 article (347 comments in total)
In reply to:

ArchiDeos: Wow. I've seen to much bitterness on the comments. In respect to all the Pros and Newbies like me, If you don't want the specs of the Camera then don't buy it. That's simple. But as they say we can be all have an opinion on the net. I like the concept but that doesn't mean I will buy the camera. Just for the fact that you can shoot continues shooting for 1 hour or 30 minutes video is a plus compare to the one mostly talking about. Hoping they can do the software upgrade for RAW both video & still if they can.. Waiting for MARK II. Have a great day everyone.

Don't want the specs? That's are point here, There is very few, for an outrageous price! You are right, the sales will be very poor!

In reply to:

Donnie G: Someone commented here that the Canon XC10 is a prosumer PowerShot camera, and I agree. The camera is everything that a PowerShot built for pros on a budget should be. I won't try to comment on its image quality or even on whether it will be accepted by the target user base until I can get my hands on one and check it out for myself. What impresses me the most at this time are the design and ergonomics. I think Canon has made a very user friendly camera that, like all PowerShots, can be picked up and used by anyone regardless of their skill level. If all of this proves to be true in practice, then I will definitely buy one for myself by next spring. It would be the first small sensor camera that I would consider to be a compliment to my DSLR system and the way I work. As first impressions go, I really like what I see in the XC10. :))

Wow you must work for Canon! LOL! You can't be serious about Pros buying this camera. Good Luck!

Canon, Listen UP!!

It would be wise for you to learn how a small company like Black Magic Design, has progressed into a very cool company, With there key drive being design!

This next Camera from them is going to make a serious dent into the market.
This the kind of forward thinking that people want to see Canon!

Your design is based on how can we give cutting edge features, and protect our other products profit margins, plus you can only ride that Lens program for so long!

Ok check this camera out, it is just outstanding! I already have mine on order.
Comes out in July, for $995.00 No, it does not have 4K, but, the 1080P form this camera is so good, it will trump 4K down reser's. See the specs.

This XC10 is a complete planned rip-off or Canon is just stupid!

I will take the Samsung NX1 and there 16-50 lens over this XC10 All Day Long!
Even though the NX1+Lens package cost $400 more!

Sorry Canon, The ergonomics, 4K, and the design are the only thing going for this camera. Lens Too Slow, shutter speed too low, No built-in flash, No Power Zoom,
expensive Cfast Cards , Not weather sealed, Slow Continuous Drive-3.8fps on a 12 Mp sensor? USB 2.0? No Raw Images? 4K at only 30FPS?

Your bragging about the 1" sensor in low light, well with only a 12 MP sensor it better be real good in low light, Why, Because the Sony RX-10 has all the features that the XC10 does not have, except for 4K, and its a 20 MP 1" sensor for a max price of $900.00 I would have a hard time buying the XC10 if it were priced at 1,500.00 due to it's many limitations, let alone $2,499.00 I love the one lens concept I have fallen in love with the RX10, except the battery life

On Samsung NX1 Review preview (1237 comments in total)
In reply to:

AlexisH: Here are the typos I found while reading through:

"that I realized *I* how many photos I had taken" - extra *I*

"but in every day use the 28 MP" - should use everyday

"the NX1 includes some significant compute power" - computing

"as soon as focus is achieved[,] a flurry of AF" - missing comma

"will appear over the the subject and [will] attempt to track it" - missing "will" in second part

"In fact, since being introduced[,] the NX1" - missing comma

"we can't get it to reliably work " - split infinitive, should be "to work reliably"

"of maintaining the connection[,] and conventional Wi-Fi for " - missing comma

"Oddly[,] the installation app" - same

There is also a typo of info in 2 places you state:
4k 4.2.0 8 bit, Out of HDMI, and one other place, it states 4k4.2.2 10bit? Which is it?

In reply to:

RichRMA: Well, some medium format style bodies balance well, (Pentax 645 for example) but I don't know how this will be received by the video crowd who will be its primary buyers, IMO. The pixel count is also "sane" for the sensor size, but don't expect Sony A7s low-light video quality from it.

How do you know it's low light capabilities? Are you a Canon Eng?

Jose Ernesto Passos: Unfortunately the market is concentrating and one option is going to disappear from the market. Sony has been doing lots of mistakes after it missed the LED technology in TVs. In the camera business it overstretched the number of camera models. Probably this decision was supported by the some major consulting company.
The fact is that Samsung may destroy the consumer electronics business in general. Today it has achieved such a huge economy of scale that dwarfs any competitor.
Canon in no way is a competitor for Samsung. Samsung dominates too many technologies today. If we take a look how it is starting to move in the camera business, unless there is an anti-trust action there will only one. I don't like a market with a small number of choices...

Look up the reviews at B&H that are end users that purchased the camera. They don't get paid, and B&H does not filter there reviews.

Have you read any of the reviews at all? Everyone who has used the NX1 has nothing but High praise for it!

That Half-Baked-Camera, is very, very state of the art, and is my next camera! Samsung has done an outstanding job on designing the NX1! I don't care what you say or think. Samsung are still better TV's than Sony's, and I'm a Sony fan!

SADJOE: You do know every TV comes with a color adjustment, like our custom white balance adjustment in our cameras! I don't like Panasonic TV's and the majority of the public doesn't either, I have been a Sony man for a long time, had a number of Sony big screens, but I have to admit, Samsung TV's really Rock, they have better TV's than Sony does now, and LG is nice, but I have heard they have a lot of small problems, what seems to be on every new model.

CameraLabTester: Adobe keeps on being the leading edge because of constant innovations and the ability to allow third party software to enhance it's capabilities via plug ins.

And patents.

Yes, patents.

(you can't touch this... dum, the-dum, dum-dum)

.

The last decent tool they added to the program was the healing brush, the rest are Hype features!

In reply to:

Stuart001: I can't believe people are so negative about something that no one is forcing them to use. Does anyone still use 3Mp cameras? Dial up internet? A mobile phone powered by a 6volt, wet-cell battery? Watch VHS movies?

Subscription-based, downloadable software is inevitable. Why? Because we now have the means to quickly transfer large amounts of data over the Internet. We don't need to put it on CDs or DVDs any more. And the subscription model is actually cheaper than the old method of buying PS 4,5 or 6 and Lightroom, unless you are happy updating just once a decade and using outdated software.

Some of the new things in PS CC are terrific. Access to camera raw as a filter within Photoshop by itself saves me hours per week, and more than pays for the annual subscription. This is true even if you are not a pro, unless you value your own time at zero.

Don't like it? Don't buy it. Or invent something better. (And I don't work for Adobe, and I'm not a hip young tech head-I'm almost 60.)

Outdated my friend, is in the mind of the user! One may be quite satisfied with the tools he has.

In reply to:

madeinxyz: In all fairness, I wish want to point out at a time where so many people were using pirated ADOBE CS software. For anyone who has a clean conscience, good for you, but even you probably knew someone who hadn't had a clean vest.

Another thing: Many companies that I worked for tried not to upgrade their CS for as long as they could, because of course, it costs money. Sometimes, I meet people working in companies that still use CS3. Which is their right, of course.

Adobe has to grow as a company and deliver more products that can enable artists to do even more. Technology is rapidly changing and so are the skills that handle technology. For Adobe it is alpha and omega to be ready to face those changes and expectations. A subscription based fee model allows them to better calculate investments.

Mr. Baddger1952, Just because there are occasional users doesn't mean They should give up certain features that are not in other lower featured versions!

TheDreamingWatchman: A lot of people seem to believe that - if you buy and own software - you can use it forever; or at least for the next 25 years.

Sorry to be the one to break the news: You can't!

In 10 years your current computer will be old and retired or slow and useless or dead without chance of resurrection.

You will have a new computer and the new computer will have a new OS.

And there's a good chance your current Photoshop (or Capture One or whatever you own) will not work with the new OS because the OS will be new and your software will be old. Real old.

But don’t worry! You can still put the box with your software on a shelf and tell your grandchildren: This it Photoshop (or Caputure One) from 2014.
I bought it! I own it! It's mine! (My precious!)

And if only I could find an Emulator for Win7 (or OS X) for my Win 14 (or OS XIV) I could show you, what I can do with this little darling.
I’m sure it still works like a charm.

25 years from now, we won't even have desktops, or laptops or keyboards, or mice, and most of the software will be free!

gordonpritchard: I don't understand the anger.
The subscription model made PShop affordable for me.
$10 a month vs about $1200 for the standalone app.
What's your problem?

You have NO Choice! They can raise the price as they want! If you quit paying the monthly Fee you Lose, and have Nothing, not one version of software period, I find it hard that you are blind to the reason that there is an overwhelming opinion of people that HATE Adobe for what they have done. And if adobe doesn't care about the average customer and only the high end clientele, good riddens Bring on the Competition!!!

I wish they were gone or bought out by someone else, I'm sick opf there Bullsh__ policies!
