In reply to:

itaibachar: Looks like a big Instagram toy... and since when is 44x33mm medium format?
It's an "APS-C" MF, with "aps-c MF" lenses...

All that is larger than 24x36 is medium or large format.

My first impression is that there are some room on the ergonomy side. Too much reliance on screen for adjustments . There should have been more buttons and wheels.

sdh: "100,000x thinner" is really the wrong way to state it.
Unless you mean lenses will be like 1000 ft thick.
Sorry, if this were like Yahoo news it could slide but not here. :-(

Yes, it had just been better say 1/100000th of the size.

In reply to:

Cameracist: 16MP??? That's more than the expensive a7S II !!! Why pay more? What is Sony thinking!

I would rather have a 10MP DSLR for taking photos than a 40 mp smartphone. The 10MP images from the SLR will be far better in quality. Even with just 10MP.

ChrisH37: Lovely, how about some actual EF-S lenses so we can use them at the 'correct' focal length. A fast 35mm equivalent would be a good start.

you have zoom lenses that cover the 11-24, 16-35, 17-40 , and 24-70 area. And also 70-200. So all is covered. With L-grade optics. You don't need a special EF-s lens to fix that. The marked for high end lenses is small enough, it would be even smaller if you make it only for EF-S.

Max Iso: Canon needs to bit the bullet and enter the smart phone arena. Replace compacts with smart phones and call it a day, large sensor ILC will continue to hold it's own space.

canon is doing things in the pro video marked instead. I can't see any reason why anyone should enter the heated marked of smartphones of today. The competition is real.

Debankur Mukherjee: MF always wins over AF...............

No. As long as you have full time manual override on most canon lenses, you can just fix focus manually if you want at any time.

Clint Dunn: This is one of the reasons I gave up on my Canon DSLR's...inconsistent AF. Mirrorless is the true solution here, everything else in DSLR land is a band-aid.

Canon has lens ajustments. What cameras has not good AF on canon?

Still DSLR is way faster AF than mirrorless.

Edgar_in_Indy: Judging from the comments on here, it sounds like it's finally okay for DSLR users who suffer from AF adjustment issues to come out of the closet.

I've been praising Sigma for years for offering free lens-to-body calibration service, but many of my fellow DSLR shooters seem to believe that just proves that Sigma doesn't know how to build a properly calibrated lens in the first place. But since I've seen calibration vary from body to body I've owned, I know that at least half the problem is with the DSLR itself.

It's just the nature of the beast, so it's nice to finally see it being discussed in the open by DSLR makers. Although they probably didn't have much choice since AF accuracy is one of the major advantages of mirrorless, and is part of the reason I've been transitioning. Someday we'll find our dusty old lens calibration charts in the back of closet and laugh.

Canon has had lens ajustment in camera body for many years now. The problem with lenses and bodies are that they are within specs, but if you have a body and a lens that are opposite direction they will be off. So hence the user ajustment of af is a fine thing.

In reply to:

AngularJS: 800+ comments and coming. Very impressive. I would expect less comments if Canon would announce a 1GPx FF sensor :) So here is the plan now:
1. Buy an 80D
2. Start taking underexposed images and lift the exposure by 5 stops in PP
3. ?????
4. Profit!

it is to show that there is more details in shadow areas. If you can't understand that. You have to read your own comment one more time. And think: Am I proud about my comment?

The focal length does not change by having smaller sensor. And all EF-lenses work on a cropped camera, so I can't see the deal at all. If you want camera system that has always less sensor, then go for something else than Canon.

Not so witless, as a consultant at Polaroid, he would amaze us with the images made with the Polaroid systems, SX70 included. Better technology will improve the "photograph" but "photography" is still in the control of the photographer, whatever camera is used. My favorite D810 is stunning, but my old D50 still delivers beautiful images.

It is insulting, rather. Because if you say, rather go back to iPhone camera, you will not being able to utilise the power of a canon 70d. Is just insulting. Some skilled people would utilised it more, but that doesn't mean that an unskilled person would not utilise anything of the power of it.

There are loads of situations that will test the cameras capability to take the correct image. For instance capturing action. And in low light.
And at that point also having a better camera is nice, also for the photographer with little skills. Both the skilled and unskilled will take better images with better cameras.

On article In Fine Detail: Canon EOS 5DS / 5DS R In-Depth Review (729 comments in total)
In reply to:

bberns22: Believe it or not, for many pro photographers (especially photojournalists) absolute image quality is not a requirement. Reliability, ergonomics, and lens selection are far more important. Photographers like Michael Melford or Nevada Wier often shoot with zooms, which are optically inferior and less sharp than fixed equivalents (at relevant focal lengths). These pros will also tell you that that their photos have never been rejected due to lack of sharpness or dynamic range . Pro's worry about creating a great photo -while many amateurs (especially the dilettante's among them) tend to worry about charts, image comparisons and biased camera brand parity.

Are you going to print big, then resolution and quality matters. Are you a news journalist, getting the image is more important. But it is always more important to get a great shot rather than having the best gear.

Except if you use your camera in bad environmental conditions, you can protect the front glass on the lens.

backayonder: I wish Adobe would go back to beta testing because for those of us who can only get wireless broadband with only 8gb of bandwidth per month the constant downloading of upgrades is a pain in the backside

for about 50$ a month , i have a theoretical download and upload speed of 500GB per 24 hours.

What type of connection do you have?

You have a internet connection that is too slow for most current software. But you don't have to update adobe cc each month. Take your computer to a fast internet connection, and do the updates then. Ensure that you don't download updates automatically, since it will take much of your bandwidth.

oysso: how to copy an image: Print screen. No protection at all....... Whatever is the metadata. The copy functionality is there. This will only make it more difficult for people working with jpegs. It will never protect images from being copied.

Dr_Jon

You do not need so large screen, you can watch image at 100% and just stitch the parts together after. Just have some overlapping areas, and the stitching is very easily done in the right software tool.

Unless this DRM think is making the image encrypted and you need password to open it, then it will be exploited.
