topstuff: All the months, years of waiting.
All of the benefit of not being first, and being able to watch and learn as your competitors go to market before you do.
And then, after all this, the end result is utterly boring and utterly predictable.
There is no innovation here.
Very disappointing. Canon have become very, very conservative and in the long term I think this will hurt them.
maybe topstuffed wanted a camera that didnt look like a camera and more like a skturp....
Bernard909: This limitation apply in Europe (maybe not only) where some local companies (now dead ?) thought it was clever to protect their product lines from the asiatic ones (that was long time ago) It's good news for those who want to capture long events (sports, theater, dance etc.) and use multicam in editing (now affordable).
which European companies???
long time ago what you mean???
DSLR have video only since 3/4 years ago...
Jogger: The cost of the camera and 50/2 would buy you a D800 and $13000 of very good lenses. Am i making too much sense?
if everyone had your limited mentality we would only see Toyota Corolla on the streets, what is the point of owning a Maserati when I can buy 15 Corollas?
pluton: If Nikon made their own version of this, it'd cost $2500, and the lenses would be $500 to $1000 each.
se me nona l'avea le rode,
sarae n caret...
villagranvicent: "Merda d´artista" (Artist´s faeces) was an art work by Piero Manzoni in the 60´s, the project consisted in literally canned his own fecal matter and exhibit in museums. One of those cans were sold at 124,000 euros by Sothebys in 2007.
If that kind of thing happens in this world, Leica jokes do not surprise me at all... There will always be willing to buy "Merda d´Artista".
this is different.I bet if you had the money you would buy it.
whtchocla7e: It's depressing how people around here are so conservative.You wouldn't survive a day without a shot of your cat in color..
What if... what if I wanted to see my cat in color 20 years from now? Well, I couldn't. It'll remain a mystery forever. I'm attracted to the idea. Gotta live on the edge.
great, I just imagine Godzilla grabbing the giant swan by the neck!!
Mr Fartleberry: Great job as usual.
Cons - add no GPS. Cons - Price-gouge grip. Cons - yet another Nikon battery and charger standard.
If you go to north Korea (and other countries) and the camera has GPS you ll have to leave at the airport.
do you understand why there is not GPS in seroius cameras???
Roberto Mettifogo: Not a word about the disturbing moirè in video mode ?? Anyway there is moirè in video mode, a lot, not much else to say...
Well, I quote the conclusion:"In our noise comparisons with the 22MP Canon EOS 5D Mark III, the D800 arguably produces slightly better results in terms of shadow detail."
Maybe I have viewing problems but for sure I am not color blind.But looking at Studio scene comparison (Raw) at ISO 3200 especially in shadow areas like the cube and the bottom right of the green object, the 5D is simply better.Less grain less color artifacts.How on earth can the reviewer see something different.
Where are all the Nikon-boys screaming and laughing at Canon and the light leak...???
Every big camera maker has shown some pretty bad build faults in the last year.
There is no point to pick on others people cameras unless you are 5 years old.
But Nikon... we are missing shots here, not just a light leak...ah ah ah
Lajos Hajdu: Baah, sorry but this is horrible. I don't know what you did to that photo but the terrible noise makes it look as it was taken with a compact camera. After some simple post-processing, my 7D produces better night images.
Ehy A. Adams, there is not need to be hoffensive.
jamesfrmphilly: i have been using canon since 1990 and i have never had a failure….
lucky man!, lucky!I have had Canon video cameras since 2002 and cameras since 2006, almost everything I had had problems.I must be a masochist to stick to the brand, but I have to admit that image quality is the best.
Francis Carver: Biggest bug they gotta fix is the rather ridiculous price of this lame-legged so-so camera.
you should look for a new firmware for your brain....
maybe will fix the bulls**t liking out your mouth and keyboard....
stroy: I wish the unknowing subject of this photo had turned around, caught Chase92 taking his photo, grabbed the camera out of his hands, and repeatedly beat him with it until his eyes bled. I'll bet you were on spring brake with a bunch of your douchey frat boy type buddies laughing hysterically at this poor guy behind his back.
>>> carlos roncattiI am very pleased to see how perfectly you fit into your description!
I see it in a different way:the unknowing subject of this photo had turned around, caught Chase92 taking his photo, and called 3 friends to try to move him/herself to a more quiet place...I doubt he would have been fast as Bolt to grab the camera...
cdlm: There's a circular pattern around the boy, in the bokeh and in the trees, especially on the top right… is it because of the lens, done during development, or just pure (educated) luck?
waitformee: actually i really wonder who uses these...???
Maybe can consider gigapan for hi-resolution images...
D800 is 36mps and Leaf Credo 80 is 80mps... the jump is not really big but leaf lose a lot of agility.
I can tell you ve never had the pleasure to use something like, say, an Hasselblad...
