On 'See Impossible': Canon counts down to... something. article (1667 comments in total)
In reply to:

samhain: Jokes and dreams aside...

"We see impossible"....
That has me thinking it has to do with af. Perhaps an af system that can focus (or 'see') in the dark.

That, or having something to do with the impossible project.

I'm going with some sort of night camera/focusing

"Because it probably has nothing to do with photography." I am betting on that.

It is not impossible to see a camera so it will not be a camera. We can see what we like from Canon so it will have nothing to do with us. It will be something we can't comprehend and best of all it is something we can not buy. Which is a good thing so we can keep our money.

We need to have cameras to take pictures. Cameras need manufacturers to come into existence. Manufacturers must make lots of money to continue making cameras. To make tons of money they need marketing tools. Niche marketing is one such tool. Niche marketing is good for consumers as it caters to their budgets. If not for niche marketing I wouldn’t have been able to buy my first DSLR which was the 350D, which was what I could afford at that time. At that time the 20D was still expensive for my wallet. If not for niche marketing I wouldn’t have been able to buy my first FF DSLR which is the 6D, which is what I could afford at this time. The 5D series, whenever they are released, are always a little out of my reach. Niche marketing is good for manufacturers as it could lure photography enthusiasts into buying more than one model. The 7D mk2 is made for the sports and birders niche. If you are not in this group don’t buy it.

MikeF4Black: So it's as big as a full frame DSLR, it weighs as much as a full frame DSLR, but it's got a small sensor.

Interesting.

I love FF but there is not much an FF can do that an APSC can't save for these three little things: 1. It gathers more light; 2. It makes smoother bokies/shallower DOF; 3. It allows you to crop deeper. If you don't fancy any of these three traits you need not go FF.

LOL Paul. You are a tricky fella. You like tricks and you don't like to be with your mother in law at night. :) Maybe she can see through your tricks. Better practice more on your tricks. Cheers.

macky patalinghug: Take it for what it is. It's a sports and bird cam. Perhaps the best in this category. Low light creeps, go to 6D. Video crazies, get the 70D. Wedding shooters, grab the 5Dmk3. Going to Syria or Ukraine, bring the 1Dx. Street and candid freaks ought to try the 100D. If you are not sure of what you want take any rebel.

No 4K? Wait for the 80D or 5Dmk4. If you can't wait go Sonny or Panasonic.

Low light go D750 (no, it's the D600 sensor still, lil more details but not quite as smooth as the 6D. Specially at jpeg level.)

Video get the GH4 or A7s (yep)

Wedding shooters grab the D810 (No. Files are too big.)

Going syria Canon 1dx (yep and yep and yep -choose yer yep)

Street never a Dslr (It depends on how you work, I hide behind posts and crowds.)

Ricoh GR Fujifilm X100s or t
The new panasonic LX100 or any good mirrorless
are better options (I have had the EPL1, GF2 and now the X-M1 they are no better than my DSLRs in street or party pix. They are a little worse when the subject moves around a bit.)

In reply to:

joyclick: @ about $1800 does 7D II make sense no matter what specs?
Is the pricing reasonable from the buyer's point?

It is very reasonable for those who bought the first 7D which was sold at around the same price.

Though it might not be very attractive to people like me who are not seriously into sports and are not quite interested in birding.

Perhaps the biggest news in this Photokina. Takes away the thunder from 7Dmk2 and the D750. The smartphone/phoblet will gobble up everything on it's way to becoming the single carry all gadget. It's now a watch, a TV, a map, a video/stills camera, a jukebox, a computer and a toy. Now if it can fix tires and and uncork the wine bottle, everyone will have a chance at playing McGiver.

Nikon DF 2 should have this detachable screen so as to make the shooting experience really film-cam like wherein you get to see what you captured not instantaneously but much much later. Though this Casio though is more "spy and peeping" oriented than "film-cam nostalgia." But the idea of a detachable DSLR LCD does give that "c u later allegator" kick if you detach it while shooting.

I want I want I want an affordable FF DSLR that comes with a free smartphone that controls its video functions. And I want I want I want it to do live streaming too. :)

In reply to:

iudex: A lens (for CSC) this slow should definitely be smaller; e.g. a similar Pentax 18-135/3,5-5,6 is smaller and lighter (405g, 76mm vs. 490g, 98mm), just as is the Sigma 18-200 with longer reach; not mentioning the fact these are DSLR lenses, i.e. built for bigger flange distance. With the biggest X-mount camera (X-T1) it is so-so and for all the others the lens is too big.

True

rondhamalam: euw.. the bokeh.. yuck

yep, I got some Kremlin swirlers too, most m42's behave a bit this way but a bit more sharper at the center and have more soothing colors...

maljo@inreach.com: So much more detail in the Canon image; Canon is the winner here at high ISO.

Now, something is wrong here in a BIG way cuz the Canon sensor is supposed to be the whipping boy at DxO. How come it can out punch the Sony celebrities here?
