This body sells more than the NX1. Nice pricing. I don't mind spending on this vs. NX1 just to experience Samsung ILC.
brendon1000: Sigh. One more case in point to avoid third party lenses for cameras.
there are also the AF algorithm and this is where the money is. Now why should Canon reveal this to their competition? This would fall under intellectual Property in the IT world. Would Apple share their IP with Windows?What people fail to understand is Sigma/Tamron developed their Algo by trial and error. You should expect errors. Good thing is, you can still use MF. Another thing that Canon/Nikon does is include lens correction data in their camera body (pro) for most of their lens which provides in body lens correction which is periodically updated.
Vignes: I thought the Panasonic phone with 1 inch sensor was the truly connected one with a Single piece hardware design which would have taken lots of R&D effort from the Japanese mfr. This Apple/DXO effort seems lazy and lo cost. probably cost them less to make which would yield a lot of profit from the apple fan base.And DXO rating their own... conflict of interest!
the title says truly connected... an android phone can be truly connected to. I'm a iPhone user myself, so what's the difference? I still think it's half baked effort as an add on piece, similar to the sony Q units!

CameraLabTester: This camera is exciting.
Anybody who gets to own this won't be here on forums anymore...
They would be doing something more worthy.
I think you have over stated about the phone thing. There are more shooting via phone camera. There are lots of people who became interested with the thought of taking photos because of camera phones. I think the days of specific camera for all kind of quick shots are gone!
Lawrencew: A key advantage that MILCs have is no need for MFA as the focusing is performed on the sensor
So you would think the best competitive move by Canon would be to include MFA in every DSLR. The technology must be well developed by Canon now and a minor cost to add. It smacks purely of Canon wanting to justify the higher price of other models
Having faced these back/front focus issues with Rebel camera I would never buy another one. Seems like Canon would prefer I bought a MILC instead. Pity the M3 isn't good enough to then.
Use Liveview if you want on sensor AF like any other MILC.
Robert Garcia NYC: This body reminds me of the Olympus Em1
It does look like EM1
Everlast66: Sony A6000 looks way better than any of these two and is at the end of its life-cycle waiting to be replaced.
rrccad... had a good laugh. Thanks.
I have the Oly EM5/1 and 6D/7D2. Even though the EM are small it doesn't mean it going to be a comfortable holding it for prolonged period e.g. video. There is thing called monopod which can be more comforting. Sounds very desperate from Olympus. There are also even lighter options called smartphones.
GabrielZ: I think the new APS-C sensor is the one heading for the rumored Fujifilm X-Pro2! Here's hoping, looking forward to that camera a lot, as an X-E2 user myself.
Not sure about Fuji using sony sensor for their premium body. the whole idea behind the success of their X bodies was their unique sensor. Whether it's good or bad, Using a Sony sensor is like a me to thing.
backayonder: meanwhile in Australia Nikon dealers are advertising a price increase for Nikon lenses
Aussie currency has dropped like stone. the local operations didn't pass the savings when the currency was strong but now they want to increase when the currency is weak.
Remember reading in the web end last year that Samsung was concerned about sales and may drop the price. The gold award from DPR would help out NX1 sales.
Michael Ma: While Canon wants to correct the mistake of making people want to shoot HD video with SLRs, Samsung is setting their own standards and shaking up the stagnant Japanese camera manufacturers who handicap their cameras to sell more premium models. Maybe we'll be back to getting the most out of the hardware, instead of paying an arm and a leg for a codec implementation. Only good things can come from this.
How sure are you that Samsung doesn't do the same thing once they reach the same state or success?
G3User: BUT, Nikon's 14-24 is a 2.8 lens. Enough said. What a joke of a lens Canon!
Tyler C, why shouldn't Canon price it's product as it wishes? There are people whom will pay for a brand and Canon is a reputable brand. I see people throwing their money on Apple brand and why is that? For instance, iPod... they sound quality is mediocre compared to some competition portable players like Sony but yet people (the standard Joe) are willing to throw money on it because of the brand.
Oli4D: @ panpen: Well, the sensor size is not the most important thing. Sonys A7 is a good camera for sure, but with full frame you have the problem of large / heavy lenses, especially the tele zooms.Also, full frame DOF is not always an advantage. For macro work for example, the E-M5 II with the MFT sensor has actually an advantage.
RichRMA... how do you shoot in this mode (40mp) to achieve high frequency repeating details. I thought this mode (40mp) is for single/static shots...
magneto shot: i read the interview above as : We are microsoft and we are nokia
The 7D2 is a bargain. Go try it's AF and you'll know what am I talking about. But study the manual first before use!
KingOfAtlantis: This guy seems a bit ignorant and not much passion for making cameras. He has that Samsung feel about him. Mocking others instead of improving their own kind of thing.
AlexisH... keep assumingAnyway, why are you so worried about Canon. DO you own any Canon share? Look, it's simple go use non Canon product if you see no future in Canon product.
AlexisH... his response is to the current state. Yes MILC thing has some traction in the market but has it caused a huge dent/impact on the DSLR market? Canon knows MILC has gained some traction if not why are they experimenting with EOSM system? There is not much diff between MILC and a modern day DSLR accept size but high end MILC are not small either. DSLR can easily be used as a MILC system. Most DSLR are hybrid systems, you can lockup the mirror and use it in live view mode. it's slow because it uses on sensor CDAF. They can develop an on sensor PDAF/CDAF for their DSLR. They have done that for the EOSM3. They can do so for their DSLR if they chose to. I have 3 systems of MILC (m43, E, X) but just because I have them doesn't mean i shut my eyes, say hey MILC is high tech and has destroyed the DSLR market like most are doing.
munro harrap: The hidden ingredient could be 4K!
Makes sense to do a future proof high quality full-frame Pentax.
I'm sorry Scott, i'm not following you. are you saying people would jump from other system like Canon and Nikon because of 4K inclusion in Pentex?
Its Japanese lingo and I can see people just don't understand this and trying to assume things including DPR folks. I used to work for a Japanese technology company and this is the way they answer questions. You’re always get a simplistic single line answer and they'll will not provide options in their answers. Definitely seems ignorant for western folks and seems arrogant as the result but it's not. Also, why shouldn't a leader in an industry be arrogant? Furthermore who is DPR to them? Since majority of camera makers are Japanese, maybe DPR should hire a Japanese or persons familiar with the Japanese corp lingo to carry out interview plus try to make sense.
