Octane: Awesome that a manufacturer spends a lot of time and effort to make an 'old' camera much better and provides it as a free upgrade via software. I hope this will set an example!
Some people can never find any goodness in anything... all they do is nag nag nag.
Love the upgrades in audio level adjustment. Was waiting for it....Thanks Canon !
Kf1902: Can anyone confirm this has the same 6 frame RAW buffer as the 550D?
From what I'm reading elsewhere its:
22 Large/Fine JPEG and 6 CR2.RAW (550D has 34 Large/Fine JPEG and 6 CR2.RAW).
In the words of Theo Paphitis, I'm out....
Sony? Really.... ha ha...
123Mike: + Canon lovers finally get to enjoy AF during video, which was a complete deal breaker for any family video needs.+ People invested in Canon accessories do not have to look at jumping ship to Sony anymore, which was up to now the only brand that offered decent AF during video+ Continued access to Canon's most excellent lenses.+ choose between contrast and phaseshift detect focusing for photos.
- Only 30 fps video- Only 5 fps photos- Still side ways flip out screen.- No in body stabilization, need expensive lenses.? however - video uses digital stabilization ?
+ 60 fps video+ 10, some 12 fps photos+ Better flip out screen.+ In camera stabilization (video does a very effective digital stabilization).+ In camera high quality panorama.+ Hand hand high quality twilight/night multi photo combining.+ ISO boost by combining multiple shots taken at 10 fps.- slight light loss due to pentamirror mechanism.
Yeah, But this is a CANON ! Sony is just a Sony.
IcyVeins: LOL CANON'S FINISHED NOW! GOODBYE TO THE OLD DINOSAUR! LONG LIVE SONY!
Sony! Bah ha ha ha ha.
Edmond Leung: Although most people feel this camera is too expensive, it still created a new benchmark for Nikon, Olympus and others.
This is already the trend, if Nikon, Olympus and others still hope to survive, they must introduce 4K DLSR too. Otherwise, there is no way for them to compete in the market.
"The hardest part of the camera design is producing a good sensor, which Canon can't make"
Ever heard of canon 5d series cameras which is used to shoot movies???
