Albert Silver: Nice video and excellent effort. The biggest problem is that a video on taking pictures of salmon in a creek is not a very compelling subject (interesting but slow paced). For one thing, in spite of the talk about how demanding it is on the AF, this was not at all appreciated by the viewer. The pictures of the fish lying about in the creek did nothing to improve this. Consider interspersing some pictures of the stills within the video, with the settings used. It is a common technique in such reviews (ex: CameraStore or DigitalRev to name a few), and works well.
Furthermore, Barney strolling in a straight line to the photographer did not seem like the sort of tracking test that would convince me it could work in a faster sports/wildlife environment. I'm not saying it cannot, but the video did nothing to clarify this.
One suggestion: speak up. You are a little too soft-spoken for a video presentation.
I could hear him perfectly.
capanikon: Eh. Canikon mirrorless is gonna crush Sony whenever they get around to taking mirrors seriously.
Crushing may commence in 2040?
Fredy Ross: big question. will it be silent?
Bigger question - why no touchscreen? No touchscreen = no sale for me.
mpgxsvcd: It must have been a really slow day at Dpreview that day.
Nobody said that already.
Pat Cullinan Jr: Lenses with glass elements. What will they think of next?
Is that a mistake in the title?
KSV: Are you kidding me? The bad: no 4K video. Are you serious? Anyone who is still in his sanity would be ever interested in 4K video (and in full HD and in 8MP jpg for this merit) from this microscopic sensor?
Why are you comnenting on this story if you don't give a damn about these devices? Seems like what you say flies in the face of many people getting anazing images from them?
Photato: Wow what an epic marketing fail...and to quote my Grand mom."Over Promised - Under delivered"
Their last copyright dispute was with Thomas Edison.
Photoman: Canon as usual, full of smoke and wind. Marketing at Canon needs to find what real work is about and get a real job. Sorry Canon, Sony will leave you in their dust.
Marketing has to find something to do. If the dev team aren't producing anything what can they do? The dev team should be ashamed of themselves. It's all their fault.
Zeisschen: I'm not sure if the word "patheticness" exists, but I feel free to use it here. Good night Canon, you are doomed. Everything about you is so 90s! Not just your camera design but even your marketing and weblayout... Meeeeh
Why stop at the 90s. Let's say 80s?
alcaher: Hey Canon, i give you a 30 days countdown! If you dont give canon users a +40 megapixel/ 14.0 DR sensor, when the clock is at 0, all of them will switch to the dark side.... the countdown starts.....NOWWWW !!
It ha to be 54mp at least. My photography is really bad right now and I need some Canon magic to make it better.
erotavlas: The only people who were underwhelmed and disappointed by this are the gear fanatics who constantly obsess about having the latest and greatest.
Works fine in IE 6 on Windows ME. Not sure what everyone is complaining about.
yzhenkai: Canon is making the comment history in DP review.
Largely because of you?
marc petzold: The counter is all at zero now - and nothing happens, no website update, very bad marketing campaign Canon - i'd fire the guy related to this crap.
Camley: DPeview - It may get you brownie points on many of your forums but please try not to be sarcastic about Canon. Sarcasm is the lowest form of wit.
Made me smile though.
I don't understand the comments about bad AF. They are shipping this camera next month. These cameras are already on production lines if not in boxes on the way to distributors. Will they be shipping with rubbish AF after all the claims of XXX focus points?? Seems very odd.
Let's hope DPR have good lawyers...
yabokkie: should give it the highest priority over all other reviews.
Not the above the Pentax Q
yabokkie: 26mm f/14.2 equiv.
Have you noticed yab that when you post, anger follows. I wonder why that is? Hmmmm.
Neodp: Aak! Windows! Pass.
We don't want to hear about your toilet activities yab.
nathondetroit: Angrily, the truck owner vents to his friend: “I’m so sick of these gas stations. Filthy equipment, rude employees, and I have to stop every 300 miles.”
To which the Nissan Leaf owner responds, “What gas stations?”
Yab still has valves in his cameras.
