  • Actually, this isn't bad. Do you have any idea of cost for this kind of thing? Could this be something that might be purchasable from a point of sale machine at airports / shopping centres etc…? ...
  • O.k, I'll try to provide a counterpoint to some of these items. That has been Canon's bread and butter. But they still artificially cripple too many products to protect other products, and that ...
  • I know you're playing devils advocate here to a certain extent, but at some point there have to be answers. I'm not suggesting that profitability and sales should be able to continue as they have, ...
  • Why would you want a different lens mount? Why is there a requirement for that? Do you not want to use EF lenses? You seem to assume that mirrorless needs to equate to smaller and lighter, but only the
  • Not much to add to what GB posted above, but... Nope. Sensor size doesn't change the data rate. 20mp is 20mp. Why would the cost be any higher than the 7DII AF system? They can sell the 7DII for ...
  • Sorry if my post came off as being critical of yours. It wasn't meant that way. The only part of your post I really disagree with is where you said.. "Thus, I think DSLRs will gravitate towards the ...
  • But you have to wonder why Pentax, with their lower volume of sales, is able to compete directly with Canon on price. Shouldn't lower volume equate to higher prices? Or rather, shouldn't higher ...
  • Well, the "rest of the world" has pretty much replaced their DSLRs with smartphones now. There's nothing Canon can do about that other than enter the smartphone market with insanely great ...
  • Is what the enthusiasts want really so difficult? Take the 7DII, put the full frame 6D sensor in it, increase the spread of the AF points, keep the frame rate. Charge $2000. Bingo! Job done. Now, ...
  • Right, but only because Canon doesn't want to sell it to us. Canon (and Nikon) sell products for as much as they WANT to sell them for. It's not like they would instantly be making a loss if they ...
  • For my tastes, you went a bit too far with the Lightroom version. However, if I layer both images up in Photoshop, then set the opacity of the top layer to 50%, I reckon that looks pretty good. So ...
  • Right, I get it. Thanks for that. The only point I would make is that, if NOT equalising the FOV, people should be seeing the same issue with a 70-200 on the 7DII that is being reported on the ...
  • …which have the about the same pixel density. Why are FF cameras treated like they present some kind of special, unique case? I've shot with a D7100 (24mp APS-C, so higher pixel density than the ...
  • It depends on how, and what, you shoot. 2.5k res RAW on the Blackmagic is pretty damned good. You get very nice CinemaDNG files off that camera, which are great if you have the time and processing ...
  • Is that not just a reflection of the weight of those lenses? I mean, if you used a slightly heavier lens on the Canon, would the balance not be just as "off" as the Nikon? Lenses come in all ...
  • That doesn't really work in the real world. The human eye can take in a scene, and adjust it's response depending on how bright parts of the scene are. Given that the range of brightness visible ...
  • …then shouldn't that be something that one could spend one's life in the pursuit of? If so, then it's simple... 24-70 f/2.8 L II 70-200 f/2.8 L IS II 200-400 f/4 L IS Unbroken focal length from ...
  • Lemme shorten that! If you're focal length limited with the 6D, get the 7D. If you're not, the 6D is a great centre point focusing camera!!! (If you don't mind the frame rate!!!)
  • It's difficult to quantify the differences between the 6D and the 7D. I'm gonna say right up front that I don't own either, but I've tried both on numerous occasions. I'm not so much interested in ...
  • You can only shoot an APS-C crop in JPEG. Raws aren't cropped at all (they have a mask to show where the crop would be). So in real "I want to shoot an actual APS-C shot in camera!" terms, the ...
