Police in the UK won't even guarantee coming to your home for a burglary these days, let alone a report of pirated software.

batmatty: Im sure if it were using a Sony sensor it would reach ISO 40 million and have all the dynamic range!!!! Typical Canon. NO INNOVATION.

Son'y share remains much smaller than Canon's. But so what? Frankly this is the most stupid way, apart from looking at Amazon ranks, to be justifying one's camera purchases or brand obsession.

You are misrepresenting Canon's financial report. And not by accident.

"Within the Imaging System Business Unit, although total sales volume of interchangeable-lens digital cameras declined due to market shrinkage, unit sales of interchangeable-lens digital cameras increased from the same period of the previous year in Japan thanks to healthy demand for such new models as the EOS 5DS, EOS 5DS R and EOS M3. As for digital compact cameras, although sales volume declined amid the ongoing
contraction of the market due to the effects of the growing popularity of smartphones, profitability improved thanks to the growing ratio of high-added-value models featuring high image quality and high-magnification zoom capabilities, along with a smooth transition from old products to new products."

They also reported that DSLR sales were holding firm in Japan, down in China, but the biggest loss is in compacts.

No I can't, may be next, or next next nxt nx December.

Sdaniella is right. Most productions RENT speciality cameras like these.

Kevin DiOssi: With the release or announcement of any Canon product these days, it's filled with experts from the interwebs.

Rather than taking a step back and imaging the practical uses for such a camera, and acknowledging that this product is one of the most innovative creations we've ever seen in cameras, we get the "but it doesn't have a Sony sensor" and "it would have more dynamic range if it didn't have a Canon sensor in it" quotes.

It's sad how poisonous DxO has become to the enthusiast and entry level amateur photographers. They really are ignorant to what's important thanks to a meaningless scoring system and scenarios of photography that are rarely ever exploited.

.... let's not suddenly diss an entire set of metrics and dismiss it as irrelevant because suddenly a spec like ISO 4 million now the most relevant thing."

Unless that spec is DR............

tom1234567: I will order two

I already had two. Traded them in for Sony because they didn't fit in my jeans pocket.

Kasra A: Clearly, some people don't even know what they're talking about!
This is obviously targeted for professional film industry and the specs, design and the price is reasonable for that market. (Compared to cine lenses that sell anywhere from $5,000 to $50,000)
The ability to even shoot at such a high ISO is mind-blowing!

Even if it is HD rather than 4K, it has obvious uses for night wildlife photography.

Even up-rezzed to 4K a full colour image is going to look a lot better than a green night vision shiny eye shot.

It just took me 30 seconds to find a link to a Photoshop CC crack dated 29th May. Clearly it's doing very little to stop piracy. I have a legit version of CS6 by the way, but I rarely go beyond Lightroom for my processing anyhow.

AbrasiveReducer: Maybe it's a generational thing but I'm amazed how many people make a point that it's just ten bucks a month--as if this will never change. "Dear Photographer, We're thrilled to announce some new, not very useful features. To support the cost of developing these exciting new enhancements, we're increasing the cost of a CC subscription...."

Of course this could never happen because the cost of things you pay for every month never goes up.

No. That's in the heart medicine forum. Not here.

nycgazelle: I am entirely supportive of the subscription based model. I don't feel a need to try and pirate anything. Two Latte's at my fancy coffee shop are more than a fair monthly payment for software I use daily to make money. There is no excuse to pirate software anymore like this when its so affordable. Their developers need to be paid too guys! Jeez. Go F yourselves.

Just wait until all the other software makers follow the same model. If this is such a good model for customers, give them the alternative and let them make their own minds up.

No. This is what happens when an industry gets bloated and rests on its laurels.

The piracy thing is a red herring, although the enforcement of anti-piracy laws is a joke. Most businesses get tax rebate on buying legit software and none for buying pirated.And the dedicated pirates have the least reason to complain because the torrents out there are as updated as the CC software.

The real reason is that the software is mature and developments are so limited the software companies know most people would not upgrade regularly.

ttran88: Gold award for lossy RAW files. If Sony keeps getting Gold awards, when will they ever change the word lossy to lossless?

It never ceases to amaze on this site how often people who accuse others of not shooting enough or properly have ZERO pictures to show in their own gallery. Or any links to any.

Then you know there are instances where part of your image may be seriously underexposed. I am very interested to buy an A7RII but the compressed Raw issue sucks and misses the point of Raw. That is what happens when you make computer game machines more than cameras.

We are constantly being told this is the advantage of Sony sensors.
