Michael S.: What a nonsense putting 50MP on an 36x24mm sensor.
There is no Canon lens that is capable to resolve those tiny pixels.

hi
why?
nikon in the d800 used a 36mp ,and their lenses are older then canon
canon has the most new lenses like 16-34 F4 L , 24-70 2.8 II and are really monster of resolution

mantra: hi

1)
do you think nikon will release the list of bodies (with serial number) affected??

2)in the link posted by digital review ,seems that even the canon 1dx and the 6d have such issue but i used this camera several times , never found such issue in the 1dx and 6d photos

i really wanted this camera (d750) even i have some canon gear

thanks
sorry for my poor english

hi
thanks for the information
now i'm resigned
i will not consider to buy the d750

i guess they sell to much ,and they lower the quality controll

that's sad about quote "No, they won't. They have no idea which bodies are affected and which are not."

On BPG image format aims to replace JPEGs article (207 comments in total)

hi

the compression ratio is impressive!!

may ask 2 questions?

1) is the gimp the only software that can save in BPG ? (seeing the gimp and BPG are open source)

2) how many website can host files in BPG ?

thanks

In reply to:

Timbukto: So many bashers...first of all does anyone realize that a EF lens that can shoot sharp pictures on a 20MP 1.6 crop is a pretty strong endorsement that the affordable 16-35 F4L IS will handle future FF sensors for years to come? Second Canon jpegs since recent DIGIC processors have long moved over to a more analog look. People who made up the term 'pixel level detail' hate this look and prefer an ACR rendering. Canon's default is more like Capture One which is also more analog looking and less about seeing individual pixels and more about the picture. Finally the 18-135 kit lens is doing its job...anyone pixel peep the Pentax 18-135? Nikon's new 18-140 is good too, but most likely the STM focuses rather quickly, and is pretty much comparable with the Nikon. How many camera's will give you better jpegs in backlit shadow heavy scenes anyhow? Your iPhone? Prove it. These comments are just a case study of confirmation bias due to DxOMark scores. Lets see Nikon's 16-35 shot on crop

why , can you use capture nx-d with canon raw files?

hi Barney

thanks for the photos , really

i would really see photos taken with medium quality EF lenses

the 24-70 2.8 II is amazing sharp , i haven't tried the new 16-35 f4 II

but would really interesting see how the sensor work with medium quality EF lenses like the 17-40 or 24-105

will be added in the future?
thanks

mantra: hi
but is at least water sealed ?????

can't understand the choice of the sensor 1.6 , it's only good for sport (iso between 100 and 400) above..if it's like the 70d is not usable for me

a sensor 1.3 would be really awesome , the image quality of 1d mark III or IV is still amazing

i tried the 70D and r it's more noisy then the 20D :(

well ,i will wait the full review
i was waitining for a 3d or even a medium format but...
i will save my money

Daniel
i own a 1d mark IV , and my friend own a 70D
please....

"The 70D is also far superior in IQ to the 1D mkIII,and I would say equal or slightly better then the 1D mkIV."

sorry , a question
do you own a 1d mark 3 or 4 ?
