UAU! a camera that is LESS in almost every important thing then ALL the others!And yes, ALL photographers were dying for wi-fi instead of a flash (that controls others!) or some 11 CROSS AF points!!!Maybe in next model they will put an MP3 player and loose ISO manual control!!! X(
Canon user since my first lens in98. But they sure are making an effort to se me changing for nikon! ):(
Edmond Leung: It seems full frame is already the trend...Yesterday was Sony...Today is Nikon...Where is the low-priced "full frame" for Canon and Pentax?I'm doubt how long can 4/3 stay in the market.4/3 and APSC may be faded out very quickly.
sure! try to make a ff as small&light as a m4/3!!! Especially the lenses!!! Sony is an EXXXCEEEEELENT exemple on that!!! ;)
bradleyg5: Canon 5d mark II is still the cheapest full frame camera available. This has got some clear feature advantages, but the shutter is only capable of 1/4000 and rated to be less durable.
I don't think Canon needs to respond to this, the 5dII is already sub 2k if they can get the price down to 1700 it's more than enough to compete with this.
no need for progress??? :o
sure! the sutofocus in 5DII is AMAAAAAIZING!!! the construction also! etc etc!!! Give me a break! -_-
JazzMasta: Nice job Nikon! Full-frame to the people! As a Canon user, I can only hope Canon and others will join this trend.I really hope this camera becomes a huge success, so it pressures the other vendors to follow.
yep, i had hoped the same when sony did precisely this MANY years ago! :/
MAYBE now, since it's nikon! canon will wake up from theyr stupidity and canibal markting strategies!!! We can always hope!!! :)
shahid11235: A full-frame D7000.. That's all.
Don't get me wrong, D7000 is a great camera. I hate stupid "Scene modes" and missing AF-micro adjustment on a FF $2000 camera.
Even the D7000 has AF micro adjustment as well as Canon 7D.
I MUST agree with the micro adjustment!!!(i guess nikon didn't want to completely screw canon... and their own 800 sales!)
Don't wake up Canon...
Peiasdf: I think Pentax should really really get working on a FF camera. 645D is good but D800E is matching it in IQ and far exceeding it in practicality.
Pleiasdf: I was going to press like when i realised u were speaking about ff35mm!If they did that probably they would loose (one of) the best relation quality-price of theyr dslrs.What we need here is a FULL FRAME 645!!! :D (costing the same as a dslr so i can afford it ;I
Edmond Leung: This just reflects how poor is the development of the lenses for M43. The reality is lens selection for M43 is very limited, especially the high-end tele lenses.It's a shame to those camera manufacturers who just know assembling cameras but without satisfying the needs of their customers in the demand of lenses.That is the reason why do Canon and Nikon can be so successful in acquiring the majority of the camera market. Because they care their customers' needs; they are not just camera makers, they also produce a complete line of lenses for their customers.Who will buy a camera without the support of lenses? A fool may!
Canon what?!? Edmund Leong.For sure u have not seen what they did lately!!! (AND, I AM A CANON USER from the start!!!)Long lenses??? maybe Olympus have the only "300mm" f2 in production!!! maybe they have the only ever"600mm" equivalente opening at f2.8!!! And theyr quality? JUST TALK WITH ANYONE WHO USED THEM!!!!! EVEN NIKON FANATICS PRAIZE THEM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
mschf: Hello?? Where are the *decisive moments* in the vast majority of these entries? I see nothing Bresson-like in any of these shots, let alone anything remotely meaningful.
wow! what an amazing expert we have here!!! :OI found SEVERAL IMAGES ALMOST A photo BASEd ON SOME OF THE MOST PUBLISHEd OF HIM!!! (And i mean BOOKS!!!)Even if it was just for Foto n4 alone! It is an amzing one!!! And i'm pretty sure HCB would have like to see it if not MAKING IT!!! So, i ask you again: HOW CAN U SAY SOMETHING LIKE THAT mschf???
PS: BUT i confess i do like ur second coment!!! :DBut what can we o if ppl like cute children; their animals to death! and things like that!!! ;)It's sooo much worst that they like some proven corrupted politicians or to figth an hurt others with excuses like football!!! So maybe we can let it slide with a smile...a smile almost like HCB style!!! ;)
PEACE&NICE Photos!!! :)
canon goes WORST&WORST!!! :(
Alec: This whole thing is a matter of an equilibrium between supply and demand of skill. If fans/customers/band itself do not readily see or care about the quality difference (technical and artistic) that a working pro vs. a willing amateur can deliver, by definition that difference's market value is $0.
Album or magazine covers where the photographer comes up with a creative concept and executes it (mood, props, lighting, environment, logistics, directing the talent, everything) that is one thing - I could see the bands/celebs/agencies ponying up real coin for that. But if you shoot a show THEY created in its entirety, next to a bunch of other people doing the same thing, they look at you like you're trying to sell them sand while standing in the middle of a desert.
It's not cool that they try to grab the rights. On the other hand if you find yourself in a role only slightly more creatively proactive than Sony IPT-DS1, it is fair to say most of the creativity belongs to the band.
Be carefull JadeGamer: Maloy is like Chuck Norris: OWNER OF THE WORLD!!!
Peter Galbavy: It's not only about the money but also about press freedom. This would be just the thin end of the wedge. What next? Perhaps the music journalist covering the night will be expected to sigh a waiver restricting how they are allowed to portray the event and how they can syndicate their writing?
It has been done!!! o_O
eyedo: I was covering concerts in the 70s thru early 1990s. The first ones to enforce the photo contract that I recall was the band 'The Police.' I'd received many hideous contracts to sign before a show and a few were not even valid because they did not provide me with a copy of the contract.I had bands ask for photo approval insisting slides/neg's be sent to them.They'd put holes in the ones not approved.Many of the bands that started doing these things are virtually unknown or dead today..One band comes to mind-Missing Persons..Yeah,WHO?
Maloy, you MUST be the BEST&MOST FAMOUS&MOST BRILLIANT&SPARLY GIG PHOTOGRAPHER EVER!!!
PLEASE GO and make some more of your DAZLING FORTUNE MAKING photos and leave HONEST PHOTOGRAPHERS in peace!!!
You need to study history!!!
OzK: I think The Stone Roses have it right with their contract. They are looking a bit old and grey, enough people have made money from them.
Now it's their turn bless them.
If you don't want to agree to it then don't!
did u read it all? If u were trying to make a living from ur photographs and this MEANT ACTING ILEGALLY because u were selling them to someone, so u have to choose between not acting with honour(not to mention legaly!) OR EATING till the end of the month!!! :(Do you think this changes things?I'm not against any band making money, ON THE CONTRARY!!! :)I'M AGAINST STOPPING PHOTOGRAPHERS OF MAKING A LIVING FROM THEYR CRAFT ALSO!!!Besides, if they make it EVEN HARDER for photographers(like the stupid rule of one minute in the first 3songs!!!) they will have MUCH WORST PICTURES, and as such, MUCH WORST(or not at all) publicity!!! EVERYONE LOSSES!!! :/
I hope e explained myself well enough! :)
I hope NO ONE takes theyr pictures! and they end up LOOSING money in this process! Discusting!!! :L
wt in hell? i clicked for the"musicphotographyboycott"!! :/
akltam1: So the performance can be improved without newer hardware. That is interesting.
Unfortunately Canon likes to do such an ugly and unloyal thing to theyr loyal costumers!!! :L
I think is called MARKETING, instead of fullfilling costumer's needs!!! :(
Just a Photographer: Canon seems to be clearly lagging behind its competitors in product development.
Otherwise no such move was necessary to prolong 7D's life.For those waiting for a 7D II - It will probably be a long wait.
Now lets see what Nikon will do with its D400 and Sony with its product line-up.
rigth on the spot Baldcol!!! :D
Felice62: Why doesn't Canon come up with extended AB range to 7/9 frames for better HDR experience?
Thay should have learned the lesson from Magic Lantern add-on..
Zanton: thank you for informing 7D users that they can't/son't want to use jpg!!!
