acassino: I think this ad campaign is stupid and offensive.
I disagree! This advertising video is stupid and boring. It's too lame to even qualify as offensive.
"most people who buy this camera will probably only ever use a kit lens" -DPR
That's why "how good is the kit lens" should be a vital part of the review.
How do photos taken with the Canon T6 and 18-55mm IS STM kit lens compare to photos taken with the Nikon D5500 with 18-55mm kit lens? For most buyers, that's the real world image quality test that matters the most.
T3: The size of the viewfinder is disappointing. It's even smaller than the poor viewfinder in the SL1. Canon basically upgraded the features of the T6 to be more of a mid-level camera, but then downgraded the viewfinder to below that of an entry-level camera. Canon giveth and taketh away!
The viewfinder of the Canon T6i is 95% coverage at 0.82x magnification. The viewfinder of the Nikon D5500 is 95% coverage at 0.82x magnification. You claim that the viewfinder of the T6 is "below that of an entry-level camera" is clearly false. The Canon T5i has a 0.85x magnification, so you're complaining about a miniscule 0.03x change.
Why drag around a "real camera", when you already have a smartphone camera in your pocket? That's the issue that camera companies need to address. I think some "you can't do that with a smartphone" commercials would be in order, from any camera company.
TriezeA72: It was partly funny, but it did drag on too long.Would've rather seen them make an advert showing a bloke struggling with a bag full of heavy equipment and another guy casually strolling around with a light load.I think they missed the opportunity to get the message across that you don't need a DSLR with you all the time, smaller aps-c mirror-less and m4/3rds cameras are adequate enough as a travel camera, back up for professional work or as your main tool of preference if it meets your demands.
On youtube, I viewed another camera company's television commercials, and they were 0:30 long. This video is 3:40 long, and feels like 10:00.
Olympus owners suffer from Small Sensor Syndrome. :-) All of their friends have bigger sensors than they do, and it's just embarrassing. They've tried those sensor enhancement products that you can buy on the internet, but none of them worked. :-)
justmeMN: OM-D E-M5 Mark II 417g (Body only).
Canon SL1/100D 370g (Body only).
Canon T6i/ 750D 510g (Body only).
Nikon D5500 420g (Body only)
Nikon D3300 410g (Body only)
A minor problem with Olympus's ad: Anyone who picks up one of the above mentioned Canon/Nikon cameras will immediately recognize that it is neither huge nor particularly heavy.
te 2r: Looks like the flame-bait was super effective. I love the conniption fits people are having over what's "professional". Great stuff.
No, it's not effective flame-bait, just dumb and boring.
OM-D E-M5 Mark II 417g (Body only).
garyknrd: I am personally amazed at the prices Canon askes for there cameras! Amazing marketing. A find tuned machine to say the least.
The Nikon D5500 with kit lens has a suggested retail price of $899. The Canon T6i with kit lens has a suggested retail price of $899.99.

KonstantinosK: "...they've garnered plenty of attention since then...". Really?
Really. The (USA name) Canon Rebel line always sells very well. In past years, people complained that Canon kept using the same 18MP sensor. Now, those people can shut up. (grin)
Judging by the retro styling, Fujifilm doesn't want young people buying their cameras.
It's an interesting sounding camera. Unfortunately, most people in the USA will never know that it exists, due to Panasonic's lack of marketing/advertising.
Bhima78: Loving that 4K Burst mode.
That 4K PHOTO mode sounds like fun.
"its top and bottom plates swapped out for dark metallic versions that match those of the OM-3/Ti from 1994."
Yes, the world is clamoring for replicas of 1994 cameras. :-)
filmluvr: It's very disappointing to see Canon playing the resolution game with its high-end bodies. What I need more than anything are DR and quieter shadows. Nothing since the original 5D seems to be a significant improvement in that regard.
This camera is for the very-high-resolution niche. Perhaps they will eventually come out with a camera for the very-high-dynamic-range niche.
See the New York Times article: "ZPM Espresso and the Rage of the Jilted Crowdfunder, What happens when a Kickstarter project fails to launch?"
There are no guarantees.
Remember, years ago, when Japanese companies were admired for having superior quality and quality control? That era sure is gone.
Another example of why it's wise to be a late adapter.
