Nice picture of the Good Hope, she won't be there for too much longer before she falls apart, and breakfast on Cader/Bwlch is always welcome

For some years now both Canon and Nikon have been moving/ enticing enthusiasts away from ASPC to full frame, so its quite strange that they haven't tried to do this with mirrorless to date

I bought an EOSM in the fire sale, had to put a Franiec grip on it, and despite it handling like a bar of soap, the main reason why I couldn't get on with it was the lack of a built in EVF, otherwise I would have kept it

Until Canon learns that every sale of camera bodies or lenses by other manufacturers, especially to current Canon users is a potential lost sale, then there isn't much hope for them in this sector

Whilst I can only speak personally for myself, I do note that there are quite a few togs in this and other forums that have gone to dual systems which again means that Canon isn't fullfilling it's customers requirements

The failure to upgrade the EF 50mm f1.4, is probably very symptomatic in this regard

However when Canon gets it right, it usually as good as it gets

Only put money on a horse with a leg in each corner, it's why they have parade rings

Some excellent images here, thanks for sharing

It' would seem like the bean counters are at it again, one such set took over a local brewery only to complain about the malt bill, my response to the friend who worked there was that they would soon be moaning about the water rate as well

Change bringing about possible short term gain, with unknown future quality and viability concerns being ignored, is not an uncommon tried and tested, but more often than not failed managerial stratergy

On Nikon D750 Review preview (1929 comments in total)

Looks like a very good camera, however for the reviewer to state that the 5D lll AF system is behind the times

I don't think so

Neil Schofield: There is still no A size crop option in the crop tool section, presumably they are going to stop selling A size paper and printers

Without this version 4 is useless to me because changes made in version 3 are not recognised by version 4, and I use the A size crop a lot

You try it with a couple of hundred never mind a couple of thousand images

It's pretty poor from canon

It's all Conceptual marketing B@@@@@@s

Words like wolf and cry come to mind

Now where's the A size crop in DPP4 again

In reply to:

bernardly: With all the profits Canon is making from its camera division and considering the vast resources of the company, one would think Canon would do the right thing for its loyal customers and support all RAW enabled cameras in DPP version 4.x. It does not seem to be forthcoming though. Even the newly released 7Dmkll and G7X get support only in DPP version 3.x with the old & crusty user interface. This is marketing Balkanisation at its worst.

For version 4, I expect that they are working on A size portrait and landscape crops options to match their paper and printer sizes

On Canon EOS 7D Mark II First Impressions Review preview (2696 comments in total)

Cancelled my order for the 1D MarkV

Specs on this particularly AF and frame rate are top notch, and it's a crop sensor that will put more than 60% more pixels on small subject matter than my 1DX

For BIF and wildlife or anyone focally challenged it's is just what's needed

However before anyone knocks it for poor IQ or ISO, wouldn't it be more sensible to wait for reviews and sample shots

If Nikon is looking for a sizeable niche product, then perhaps it should produce a D400

In reply to:

limlh: Personally, I think Sony made the mistake of using aps-c size sensor in a small body, then having to compromise with out of proportion to body size, lower edge sharpness and slower lens.

Pity they don't consider producing an AF capable adapter for EF lenses, sales of Nex bodies could increase substantially
