GPW: Unlimited, NOT a chance. The photographer gets a one time cut of $175, while 500px gets a cut every time their clients use your photo.
Steve Balcombe: This is why we're still waiting for the 7D MkII - obviously it must be getting this sensor...
Sarcasm,,, look into it.
Jim Salvas: How much if this could have been accomplished with just a firmware update? Seems to me, almost all if it.
Liberator: I use Toshiba Flashair with my OMD and I like better than Eye-Fi. I used to have one but never liked it
Fascinating, yet pointless unless you tell us why you never liked the eye-fi. Was it the color?
StevenMajor: BAD CHOICE Without the words of explanation, the image is at best a curiosity. Images need to speak on their own, to tell a story or offer information that is clear and concise. This image was likely chosen to bring attention to the plight of the people in the region. It's all political BS, not just the problems of the Somalians, but the winning image as well.
damn,, who twisted this guy's tit?
FBoneOne: After shooting canon for over 20 years this is quite underwhelming. They make good cameras but they stopped making exciting ones a while ago. I can remember signing up for canon when the first IS lens came out - changed my life. Or the Eos 3, although the eye control did not work so well, it offered so much of the 1v at a fraction of the price with amazing AF for the time and outstandingly accurate light measure - much better than my Eos 1N. Or the 540ex flash, the first really reliable wireless multi flash system. I just miss a time when canon made me feel that they were advancing photography with huge leaps.
The last time i felt that way was looking at pictures from the Nikon D800e... Or the Leica M Monochrom.
Might be nostalgia hitting, but I wish canon would wow me again.
lol,, They'll be around long after you're gone, Francis.
mpgxsvcd: Has Canon finally abandoned the A-PSC market in favor of a slightly larger than 4/3s sensor compact camera? Their latest DSLR announcement was pathetic. Their compact sensor announcement has some real promise.
Do you have a head injury? T5, T5i, 7D, M2, 60D, 60Da, 70d, SL1.,,,Does that sound like a company that's abandoned APS-C? Duh. lol
joao 43: It's such a shame a site like this one with so many mistakes. I'll clear one, the kit lens is sold apart. Please Dpreview correct because your wrong.
"although because it's a kit lens only available for the a7 - and not currently available separately"
It's sold by Amazon and several stores. The current price is 549€ on Amazon.de.You guys should really get the story right, specially after the A7 flop review.
You need a hobby mate
petemod: Only Gold? This camera deserves Platinum!
RichRMA: Another boring, dull, black, plastic DSLR. Canon is smart. Why not bring out a camera you did all the design work on 10 years ago, think of the savings!
They replaced the entry-level T3 with a camera that has 50% more pixels,,, better ISO performance,, better screen,,, better AF,,, better video. Don't you have anything better to do?
Kevin Purcell: The Sigma claim that the three layers are blue, green and red is just not true. It's marketing BS along with the 39MPx claim.
The probablility of a photon being absorbed in the top layer is highest for the blue, next most light for greenish and least likely for the red but all three do get some absortion in that layer. It's a desaturated bluish cyan.
In the middle layer a lot of the blue has been filtered (but not all) so that middle layer is a desaturated greenish yellow (some blue, some red and mostly green). The bottom layer is orangish red (mostly red, a little green and a very little blue).
To get to real RGB primaries you have to stick these (noisy) signal though a color matrix to remove the crosstalk between the colors (giving even noisier RGB signal out).
This is the major reason for Foeveon sensors poor high ISO performance (noise goes up quicker than you'd expect) and poor color fidelity (because your original primaries aren't very good).
That's the dumbest thing I've heard all day revenant,, and I was just on a NASCAR forum.
Tom Goodman: There is a lot going on here...1. The mother is no farmer2. She is, however, a card-carrying sentimentalist3. The technology involved is completely irrelevant. Do we look at Velasquez' work and say it would have been better had he used acrylics?4. DPR isn't obligated to stick solely to technical reviews.5. DPR readers are not obligated to willingly suspend critical faculties because work has digital roots and appears on this site.In the end, these are forgettable images unlikely to have any enduring value.
marike6: Lots of daylight samples. Does DPR ever bother to wait for interesting light to go shooting? IQ looks good, but for crying out loud. If I had a job that allowed me to make images with the latest cameras, I would at least wake up early at sunrise or go out late to catch the magic hour. Grab shots in bars and daylight snaps, that's all we ever see with camera after camera.
No offense but since you guys have decided to be hypercritical with no hold barred negativity in your more recent Previews and Reviews, there is no need to beat around the bush. A little effort will go a long way.
Swing and a miss.
Who twisted your tit?
ninja250: I voted for the 70D. My videos are finally in focus 80-90% of the time! I couldn't say that with my other DSLRs. I take my 70D and 6D with me on a shoot with a 24, 40, 70-200 F/4 and am very happy with this set up for both video and stills. The 70D is only $950 now! I paid $1200 and still think it was worth it. The level in the finder is one of the best features that people rarely talk about. I'm a landscape photographer so I use this every shot. I prefer the 6D and 70D combo over my 5DIII since the UI on the cameras and button set up is almost identical.
70D is a fine camera,,, wish the RAW buffer was deeper, then I could dump the POS 7D.
Lea5: It's the little things where you can see god's art at best.
err,, yes it is phips243,, that's exactly what it is. rofl
Frank_BR: According to legend, the acronym EOS was created by Canon to represent the Goddess of Dawn. However, the market failure of the EOS M suggests that EOS stands now for End Of Success…
It seems Canon is starting to lose its commercial magic
Wow,, swing and a miss. Based on your astute observations I'm sure this mega corporation that does $25 billion yearly is just going to stop being successful. lol
That's like fitting wheels to a tomato.
Wow,, underwhelming. As someone who briefly owned the original M,, it's gonna take more than quicker AF to get me to jump back in.
The blurb from DP mentions that the AF is gonna be 2.3x quicker,,, does that mean 2.3x quicker than the M1 at launch? or 2.3x quicker than the M1 after their big firmware release?
I really wanted to like this camera,, the M1 felt great in the hand,, but I just couldn't get my head around not having a viewfinder,,, and the AI Servo mode was comical ,,, and the images were a bit flat,,, and etc. Stick with my NEX I guess.
