lioneyes90: Apart from perhaps ISO performance, I think the greatest improvement is the shutter sound (=the sound produced when taking a photo). 5D and 5D Mark II sounds so bad with the high frequency ending (just like XXXD cameras). I think Nikon has always conquered Canon when it comes to shutter sound, but with Nikon D3100 and its high-frequency sound, and Canon 60D with a very smooth shutter sound, and now the 5D Mark III's shutter sound it seems like Canon is about to go past Nikon.
Shutter sound? Really? That's actually something people take into account when buying a camera...?
MarkByland: ".. but in my opinion more high-end cameras will become mirrorless in the future." - I certainly hope not!
Why? Mirrorless is clearly the way of the future of digital photography. Just take a look at Sony. Within 5 years, it is my belief that all of the camera companies will go with similar technology. With high tiny high resolution LCDs instead of an optical viewfinder, more information can be relayed to the photographer in a much more user-friendly manner. Furthermore, without a mirror, cameras can shoot considerably faster, and wear factor is reduced. There is no reason to continue with mirror/pentaprism cameras.
Cy Cheze: Still no commitment on date, price, or other specs. Might there be a "jr" version for under $3k? How about a T4i with 4k video????
I doubt they'll put it into a Rebel... The Rebel series is aimed at the average consumer, and most people have trouble storing and editing 1080p video let alone something as massive as 4k. I would be very surprised to see any DSLR with 4k for under $5000, and even that's a stretch.
Manfrotto 190xpro B. Excellent build quality, decent weight and I love the drop down center column. I can shoot at 6 feet high or just off the ground. Fantastic product.
stevelatinner: Who wants a stupid mirrorless camera? Just a way for manufacturers to spend less money making cameras.
Someone who wants higher quality images than a point and shoot but doesn't want to carry around a full sized SLR? Just because you don't want one doesn't mean there's not a market for it. I sell a lot of mirrorless cameras, and for the most part my customers are very happy with them.
Definitely looks like something worth checking out! I love my coffee table books but the size and weight and price often keeps me from buying more. I will keep my eye open for theses.
Catsup: Interesting reading all the comments.
Poor 'low light"
Poor in snow (presumably, bright light)
I want to purchase one for skiing, but have doubts.
Don't let them sway your decision. Most compact video cameras have issues with low light, and the GoPro is mainly for use in daylight. Most of the activities that this camera is designed for take place during the day anyways. I use mine when I snowboard and have always been happy with the results. The people who complain about the gopro's quality are comparing it to a completely different breed of camera. You won't find anyone strapping a 5dmkii to their head before hitting the slopes.
Awesome! The original HD version is fantastic and this one looks even better. I love that they've integrated variable angles and the wifi remote feature looks interesting too. I'd love to be able to start and stop recording from a device like my iphone. I can't wait to get my hands on one! People who are complaining about the styling of the gopro clearly have no idea what this camera is for.
pacogwapo: and now here comes lytro which is inspired by apple's simplicity
Lytro is cool, but it's no pro DSLR.. Not by a longshot.
Unhappy with Canon: Canon has really let us down. We've waited years for an upgrade from the 1DS Mark III. So Canon tells us that the 'upgrade' will be a super expensive camera that has less resolution than the 1DS mark III. And we have to wait six (more) months- pushing the delay for the upgrade from the Mark III to 3.5 years.
I will not spend the money on this camera.
Canon is trying to dictate what we want, rather than listening to our concerns. Did serious photographers really want a combination video camera? Really?
What a massive disappointment.
And having tried the 1D Mark 4 this summer- that camera really did not prove its worth. The camera blew the whites (even after adjusting the CF settings) and rendered terrible colors.
Who would pay so much for such poor quality?
But hey, I have to produce the best images. Canon can no longer deliver.
And I hate being kept in the dark about new releases. It makes it harder to make good business decisions.
Less resolution means lower pixel density and cleaner high-ISO images. The way I see it, is if you're doing work that requires 25+MP you should probably be shooting digital medium format. The combination video camera is an excellent idea. Many photographers, including myself are now doing an increasing amount of video work as well, and this camera is addressing our demands. If you don't need the video feature, don't use it. I've been able to produce fantastic images with the 1DmkIV and the 5DmkII with no issues with blown highlights or colours... Do you have some examples of the problems you were having?
Almoster: Hi! Do you know if Epson P-7000 will read the raw files from the new canon eos 1d x?
I doubt it will right out of the box, but I would be surprised if there wasn't a firmware update for the P7000 almost as soon as the 1DX is released.
Birk Binnard: Well OK, but...
1. What about roll paper feed - will it print panoramas longer than 13"?
2. How much does the printer cost?
3. How much does printer ink cost?
4. Can each ink color be bought individually?
Sounds like you live somewhere with some lousy photo suppliers. The store I work at here in Ontario has all sorts of roll paper and will have this ink system available as soon as it is available. That said, most canon pro ink is only available in individual cartridges, unless you order it direct.
qwertyasdf: Are you kidding me?! EOS-inspired design?!?!?!?!?!I say it's a Nikon V1 / J1 inspired design!see...they all look like cardboard boxes!!!!!!!!!
Fair enough. The only things that jumps out to me as being EOS inspired are the model badges.
1972 snr: I don't like the cover, because it pushes a lifestyle of people that is too subjective, gay. If it walks like a duck, then it's a duck. This is a forum, that's my comment about the way the book is being advertised. What about the photography, where are the shooters or this is what we have come to now, fashion what-to-be photographer who want to push their lifestyle on the art.
How is a photo of a gay man in any way "pushing a lifestyle" on you in any way... Did you even read this article or are you just a bigoted troll?
What are you talking about man? This thing looks great. The brushed aluminum finish and steel buttons make this one heck of a pretty printer... Anyways who cares what it looks like? All that matters is the quality of the print it delivers.
I like the two closeups at the end. The rhodie's ridge is an excellent figure study, looks like a desert landscape to me :) Also people on here need to lighten up... This is a basic tutorial for the hobbyist on how to get better dog photos, not an exclusive seminar giving away professional secrets...
orendanger: im sorry but lots of what is here is not right i have taken many dog and puppie pictures and this is not how you do it
What works for one photographer may not necessarily be the best way for another. There is not "right" way to take dog photos, or any other kind of photo for that matter.
Looks nice, but I wonder how much the ink will cost. I really like the idea of the Ambient Light Correction and the support for x-rite colour management tools.
I understand that you're going for a certain look, and opinions on this sort of thing are subjective but I find the poses awkward and uninspired and the overexposed lens flare aesthetic to be unflattering and overused. That said, if that's the look you're going for, this tutorial tells you how to do it quickly and effectively. +1 for using Metz potato mashers.
GKC: This system really falls short of what I expected. Lousy build quality, lack of PASM, horrible low light performance... Like everything Nikon produces other than DSLRs, this really seems like nothing more than an afterthought. I find it really hard to believe this was 4 years in development, seems like something they outsourced to fisher price at the last minute.
It's especially ridiculous on these Nikon cameras too because the dial is there, but only to switch between auto, video and some silly effects mode.
