I don't think they're afraid anymore considering the options and variety of mirrorless out there. They just don't want to invest and just continue milking the industry.
I reckon they will treat the lens line up similarly to EF-S.

Steve in GA: I’ve never really understood the fascination with the mirrorless concept. Other than offering a smaller body size than a DSLR with a comparable sensor, what advantages does mirrorless offer?

On the other hand, there seem to be a lot of mirrorless disadvantages when compared to DSLRs. For example,

a) DSLR technology is mature. It works, and it works well for almost any conceivable photographic need. Can mirrorless improve on this?

b) The existing catalog of lenses available for major brand DSLR’s is enormous. What can mirrorless possibly offer to compete with the hundreds of, e.g., Canon and Nikon lenses available for APS-C and full-frame DSLRs?

To me, a fairly advanced amateur who used to do pro wedding work back in film days, mirrorless seems like the answer to a question that no one asked.

Sounds familiar. Analog imaging, video, and audio were superior.

On Canon EOS 5DS / SR First Impressions Review preview (2342 comments in total)

This is Canon giving the consumers what they want in terms of resolution.
They also took the liberty to improve the mirror slap/vibration since it just would be impossible to get sharper images compared to a 5diii in practical use.

Speaking of practical use, I doubt PROs would appreciate the improvements here including product photography. This camera seems made for the enthusiast.

I reckon, the reason why the Body never went far from the 5dMark iii is because they will continue to make and sell the Mark III with this, serving the enthusiasts and PROs at the same time.

This is again a calculated move from Canon while they wait for DSLRs to wane and mirrorless to reign.

That is not funny. ISO 6400?! To sell remaining 5d III? After that, provide a firmware to enable higher ISOs?
I have a feeling that Sony will ship earlier with their 50MP camera with better specs.

wow, CCD sensor. who makes that?

nothing interesting except that new mirror mechanism.
why bother with two variants of the camera since it will have very little chance of moire with zooms or lightweight primes?

Wow, Canon is really taking their sweet time.
Nothing significant changed, except the sensor.
Can't wait to see Sony's implementation with better video specs and etc. They might even have IBIS.

Wye Photography: Cynical me says this is a ploy to keep Canon users hanging on and looking elsewhere.

Seems like it. They're quite ambitious with its size. I don't expect much.

zodiacfml: Brilliant! Now, can you help me direct me where to understand flash sync?

@dinoSnake
thanks! i just got fixated on that varying size of the shutter slit and forgot about the basic shutter that fully opens and closes.

On Google Nexus 6 camera review post (132 comments in total)
In reply to:

zodiacfml: I very much agree everything you posted on the HDR mode. The HDR mode spits out awesome images that my point and shoot cameras rarely do. The color, contrast, highlight priority, and DR is awesome from this mode.
I hope you could do more review on the HDR mode on its speed, dynamic range, and noise that I could compare it to my Nexus5.

Hmm....You got a point there.
I researched about this and found how it does its magic, HDR mode captures multiple images and combining them. That's all, no bracketing.

This probably explains why a camera app I downloaded recently, only for Android Lollipop, produces this effect/quality quite similarly on a single shot. I reckon, it processes a RAW file then performs shadow pulling you mentioned and then does all the nice post processing.

From here, I wonder what they can do with bracketing.

He may try....but this is a long shot.

" Of course, Apple generally has a much smaller range of phones than the camera brands do camera models, so Apple’s popularity is concentrated into a few products, which exaggerates their position."

Is above the truth? Then, this post of flickr means little or nothing.

Besides, if a person uses a smartphone for online posting, I doubt they upload to flickr first. facebook/instragram has that market.

On Opinion: The myth of the upgrade path article (1447 comments in total)

for the sake disagreeing, there are people who already have old lenses with them that they're itching to use on a full frame digital camera. it's not even about the image quality.
