It is a pity that we can't compare them with the cameras tests!!! I find it would be VERY interesting and informative!!!I wonder why Dpreview excluded that possibility?!? :(Even if we would have to press an extra click to open that possibility!!!
Looleylaylow: Cheese. But I'm sure there's a prog rock album cover awaiting discovery somewhere in her collection.
humm, that is really interesting! so much for originality!I wish u could post a photo or link of it! :)
Absolutic: great job guys as usual, lets see how many of the older cameras you can find to reshoot this. By the way how does it work, you guys at dpreview have a museum of every camera made in the last 10 years? Is there a closet with every camera and every charger? Or you borrow older cameras from friends and family members here and in England to reshoot these?
and that could be also VERY, VERY good to see also what happens to the sensor in time!!! :)
BonsaiZG: What if I do not have a lens with a 2.8???
there are many other ways to get small DOF! :)

It would be VERY helpful if someone would make a good article about how to protect our images and privacy for REAL in facebook!
When will someone create something that allows us to connect with ppl in fakebook but not posting actually nothing in it, just having links that automatically would link our friends to it?That could be a solution!
I do miss the drawing of the old lady drawing!!!!!! SO MUCH easier to see the definition and detail between different cameras or evaporating with increasing ISO!
Miss also the box with the coloured stuff inside!!!Those should stay for sure!!!
One very welcome thing is the colourful circle target!!!! :D
When i bought my 10D, 3of my sigma lenses didn't work, in my country they wanted to charge a bit for that service, it would take several months to get the parts(and they never actually got them!), and even told me for one of the lens they would never do! Those 3lenses become paperweights!!! One of them was my favorite: the 300mm f4 APO MACRO!!! :L
This eventual possible solution from Sigma is only truly valid for future lenses you could buy, any lenses you already have, even from last year are still subjected from any stunt from canon again to turn them to paperweights!!
tech_head: Actually Canon does not license it's lens protocol, don't know about the rest. If you buy a third party lens, there is a chance that with a firmware change that lens may not work.
I tossed (sold) a bunch of Sigma lenses when I got my 50D then 7D.Sigma and the others actually need this. I've decided to buy only Canon glass for this reason.
No matter how much Tamron, Sigma, etc promise; they can be made obsolete with a firmware change.

Greg VdB: ...and now imagine a product with a much more complex geometry, internal reflections, and imperfections that you want to hide.

Thank you for the link!!! :)
Where is the review???
If only many brands would do it in Europe!!! :(
utomo99: Why DIGIC 5 ? Why Not DIGIC 6 ?Canon SX270 HS using DIGIC 6
the bastards! -_-
What a royal CRAP! Most people here waiting for the 7D ii or 70D and they whant to sell us the 600/650 mark I(doesn't even deserve having the II!) o_O
To ad insult they release a LOWER model with WAY BETTER autofocus!!! X(
If only i did not have already lenses from this system i would choose other one in a heartbit! X(
Sdaniella: nothing wrong with padding filler models on the LOW END eco-budget lines, that's where the volume sales aimed at beginners predominate.
no need for 'lead innovations' whatsoever on these models, but the odd one now and then; so 'carry over' or 'trickle-down' features from higher models more likely than having 'exclusive innovations' in abundance on the lowest and thus cheapest models.
detractors should get over it; this isn't a new practice for any mfr; they all do it.
Guess u never saw the 400D Vs 30 or 40D pixels?
Sdaniella: disappointing to see Canon continues to withhold EOS-1 dual controls on its low-end budget beginner Rebel dSLR line, even though it has trickled down EOS-1 controls in 'mini' size for their PowerShots for a long while now.
when will Canon offer EOS-1 controls, and do away with Q-quick nav controls [as slow as other mfrs supposed quick 'nav' (and menu burdened) toggle/joystick controls??? it's getting old... Canon should 'Canonize' the Rebel series to match their higher EOS models and higher end PowerShots really]
if and when they do, only then would a 'Rebel' even be tolerably 'ok' for a 'basic dSLR' recommendation for beginners from me; otherwise, no, never.
Even worst is this unbelievable joke of changing really nothing!!! X(And the cherry on top: the lower model has WAY BETTER autofocus!!! x_X
corkymiller46: It's time to start including mbps to the video specs please.
sony? o_O Or canon?

Nikon sensors over time have continously been improving in dynamic range, color depth and high ISO even as the megapixels have been increasing. Canon on the other hand have been relatively stagnant in its sensor innovation and in its inexcsuable that in four iterations at such a competitive segment of the market that it cannot come up with anything better. I'm a Canon man if owning a G1X and a SX260HS counts. However if I'm going to upgrade to an entry or mid tier DSLR based on curent offerings I really cannot see why I would choose Canon over Nikon other than maybe lens selection and shooting video.
Thanks for the info!!! :O
I wish i could say the same as you: i am already "institucionalised" by several lenses and a flash!!! :(
fujidanny: You mustn't give all those negative comments!For me as a beginner it's very interesting to learn from the article about those possibilities, that you get by t/s lenses. For me it's a good input. Thanks a lot!For the so called 'Pro's': I think you're only envious, that you didn't write that article. Sit down and write a good article. Than you'll see: it's not that easy...Have a nice weekend! Go out and come down taking better photos...Fujidanny
this was NOT an article! JUST publicity!!!If you want to learn anything about T&S lenses or related stuff just google it because the only thing u learn here is that the 90mm T&S exist!
yabokkie: basically we use perspective control to get things within focus. some very simple tricks can put things out of focus. just raise one side of the plate under the enlarger in the darkroom where you can have much more control than on the site (like the paper can be curved, or you put two cents under the face and focus to the raised place, you cannot do it in camera).
now we can do it more easily and comfortably in the livingroom, and lens makers begin to use "optical bokeh" in their advertisement.
my advice is "do not do anything on the site that you can do later at desk" and the "perspective bokeh" is one.
THANKS yabokkie for teaching WAY MORE then the non-article, uh publicity!
Thank you!!! :)
