BCMAR15: I, for one, am getting kinda of tired of the silly shock and dismay--a bunch of fakery from the posers no doubt. Canon Rumors had the specs on this--that it would be a minimalist effort--over a month ago.

Don't get out much, huh?

And I'm sick and tired of the fact that Canon bit on this stupid, mirror-less hook! I say leave this crap to the bimbi, but they gotta try to steal some sales away...they no doubt will, some.

In reply to:

rsf3127: I think that Canon is thrusting the brand's name to justify the price point for this camera.

There are better options on the market. Some of them almost 2 years old.

@rsf3127

I know BCMAR15. He does like Canon, as do I. He is also an adult, which is why he never goes onto a Sony, Nikon, or Pentax press release or forum to post derogatory comments or recommend against one brand or another. It’s one thing to talk up a brand (or defend it); it’s another to talk it down. There is a place and time for everything.

This place is for talking up Canon.

Griffo59: Boring. Massively-underfeatured.

Is this really the best Canon can do after years of pondering on how to enter the mirrorless market?

Canon are now a slow lumbering giant. They have no agility. No ability to react quickly to changes in their market.

Canon currently have no clear class-leading camera in any market sector.

Unless they wake up and trim down and become agile again they are sunk.

Nobody got fired for buying IBM - remember that? Canon are becoming the IBM of the camera/photocopier sector.

@Griff...

I stand corrected. I apologize. I hear Canon users saying how much they admire Nikon cameras all the time, 'cause somehow they know.. and, for some reason, care.

Brian Slater: The only feature that is really missing from this camera is built-in anger/whine control. Judging by many comments here, that feature is sorely needed.

Other than that, the EOS-M seems to be a well-designed entry that will sell well to P&S upgraders, and current Canon lens owners who will be happy to have a smaller, lighter, cheaper second camera. Canon has achieved this by simply removing unnecessary features from the 650 that play to the strengths of the mirrorless format: portability, simplicity, and reduced cost.

Sooner or later, Canon will release an upgrade to the prosumer DSLR range (70D and/or 7D II) that will include an improved APS-C sensor (perhaps with some more MP, better DR, better noise control etc.). Following that they can reuse the same components in a second M series camera and sweeten the pot with EVF, articulated screen, and some anti-aggravation physical dials. Oh, and extra profit. They will take significant market share then too.

@Griff…

Uh, no. The shout, "Hear, hear!”, was meant to call people's attention to the SPOKEN word--which didn't feel right to me--so I wrote, "here, here."

I should have written, "Read, read!"

@Griff...yawn,

You wrote, on another forum, “The D300/D300s is one of the best digital cameras Nikon has ever made.”

THAT PRO NIKON COMMENT, DUMMY!

So you're NOT a Nikon fanboy, hmm? We should just ignore your pro Nikon comments elsewhere? What, you just like to walk through Canon's snow, is that it?

Edit: Canon, sunk? How silly.

KatManDEW: Yawn... 5th usage of the same old sensor. Canon obviously has nothing new to offer and continues to milk old technology. This is dissapointing especially after the lackluster 5D3 got spanked by Nikon, but it's exactly what I expected. I would have bet money that the T4i would have the same old sensor as the T2i, T3i, 60D and 7D. I have some of these cameras, and a significant investment in Canon glass, but I'm worried about the future of the company in which I am so heavily invested...

@not-sauce

The T4i is a REBEL, hello? The REBEL is Canon's ENTRY LEVEL DSLR. The fact that there are downgrades does NOT change that fact.

@KatManDont

Lackluster 5D3...huh? Got spanked by Nikon...huh? Where do you get this crap--oh DxO...where machines measure other MACHINES and we're just supposed to ignore what our eyes tell us? And it's not the same old sensor. Can you read? THIS sensor has hybrid A/F built in. Oh, you're about pixel count only...gotcha!

You're worried about Canon...'cause of what their ENTRY level body can or cannot do? Wow.

Anepo: Honestly? After seeing how little Canon changes in each of they're cameras and they're horrible excuse for what happen'd to my fathers Compact camera with no refund... If I go from micro four thirds to a DSLR again I will get a Nikon.
I have had it with Canon.

@BCMAR15,

Dude, stop ghosting my comments and answer my emails!

P.S. Now that we found each other, change your email. Some Euro-tard thinks we're the same person! Halocastle Acad. rocked!

Dear Klaus,

At first, I had no idea what you were talking about. Then i logged in. I see what you mean. Well I contacted BCMAR15, and sure enough, he attended Halocastle Photo Academy back in the 90's, too. Found a long lost Canon shooter. Never would have considered it--thanks!

Edit: and we both own this gun!

@drifter bean head,

Hello? This is a forum about images, not someone's mindless drivel. If you would like to enter into a discussion regarding the childish, irrational fear of inanimate objects, I 'd be happy to entertain you.

Borrowabrainski000

Uh, 'cause they fixed it. Ok, this "page," the article, it's not paper, ok. It's electronic data stored as ones and zeros in the form of HTML code, the language of the web. Now, this may be hard for you to believe, but the code can actually be changed--no, really. They actually designed the system so mistakes can be fixed.

Nobody cares about your opinion on guns. Comment on the picture.

"I hate hands! But wow that's a great..." See how silly that sounds?

PhilOlenick: Adobe's Camera Raw plug-in | Supported cameras page, at http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/407/kb407111.html , has been updated as of today to include the T4i in version 7.1 of their RAW importer for Photoshop CS6.

The Adobe DNG Converter has the same 7.1 version number but was posted in mid-May - and the list of supported cameras in the readme on the download page does not include the T4i, though it says that some additional cameras may be included that are not fully tested.

If anyone here has a T4i, would they be so kind as to download the Windows version of the Adobe DNG Converter and see if it can read a T4i RAW file?

Windows download page:
http://www.adobe.com/support/downloads/detail.jsp?ftpID=5389

Mac download page:
http://www.adobe.com/support/downloads/detail.jsp?ftpID=5388

I'm an XP user who can't upgrade to Lightroom 4 - which now requires Vista or later! I've groused to them about this - after all, the full CS6 does run on XP!

Your prior comments are in Sony and Nikon forums, yet you're an expert on Canon. Don't think so.
