Gesture: Next generation: memory card is also a camera. This is the era of convergence.
I'm still waiting for the camera to be the memory card.....
ConanFujiX: Why are you even writing about this?
One of the first phones by a "camera" brand, even if we know it is not the old Kodak.
Philip Lanoue: Right now you can get an unlocked LG G2 5.2" Android phone with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of internal memory with a 1080p display and a 13MP camera for $250. And that's not even the latest and greatest.
It's $250 compared to the $600 new LG G3. You generally don't try to compete with discontinued models of the competition when designing new products.
Andrew Butterfield: For people who STILL associate the Kodak name with quality and innovation... Did anyone ever have that association?
If you seperate their business lines into film vs cameras, the film side was always cutting edge. ButKodak was always the mainstream snapshot camera brand. Box Brownie, Instamatic, disposables, basic point and shoot, etc. I can't think of a single high end Kodak camera.
It was $600 a few months ago. I understand maximizing personal economy by shopping for older models, but you can't really judge launch prices against clearance prices.
l_d_allan: I'll get interested in a phone/camera combo when the engineers can somehow shoe-horn in a 1" sensor. Even with the added thickness, that capability seems appealing.
Nokia has done sensors almost that big. It can be done.
Specs don't sound that bad to me, why the negative commentary?
Rob Sims: One of the missing lenses for Sony e-mount... sigh.
(Disclaimer, I own the 16-70/4 and love it, but sometimes it'd be good to get a little more subject isolation from an F2.8)
Food for thought: In terms of subject isolation, 70mm f4 and 50mm f2.8 are identical.
ttran88: So guys Sony A7 $1300 + Zeiss 24-70 $1200= $2500 or XT-1 $1200 + 16-55 $1200= $2400?
The only thing that alters perspective is distance and angle to subject, period. FOV, Focal length, sensor size, subject are all irrelevant in the equation.
If you stand the same distance and angle to your subject with a 24mm on a FF camera and a 16mm on an APS-C camera, the FOV and perspective will be identical.
Angrymagpie: E-mount needs a lens like this! I need something like this to go with my a6000 (and hopefully, the next version of the a6000 with weather sealing)
Sony has the 16-70 f4. It's not f2.8, but it has stabilization and is actually compact.
Why would the A7 have less perspective distortion given they represent the same FOV at wide angles? Are you planning on standing closer with the Fuji?
I guess if Canon can get away with it, why not Nikon?
srados: HEY CANON, nobody gives a crap about compacts, they all collecting dust in my drawer...>>>>WHERE is North American version of Canon EOS M3 mirrorless ???
Nobody releases "Real" cameras at CES
Marty4650: I'd like to thank Canon for this nostalgic journey back to 2008.
Many of us old people hate change, so Canon is the brand for us!
I don't think anybody is innovating in this segment anymore. It's a dying market.
Reads like: "We aren't sure when or what, but it will be fantastic, trust us."
Yurko40a: No FF still?
It will never happen. Never.
viking79: You guys do a great job with your studio shots, thanks for the great work!
No they must include every camera!! EVERY CAMERA!!
Stanchung: No AF on button. :/
The whole rear controls look like a disaster!
terence_boylen: Could someone explain why this is a big deal (no sarcasm)? Does DPP do anything better than Lightroom/DxO/whatever?
#1 reason I use it is that it automatically applies all in camera corrections and JPEG settings to the RAW files. This saves a ton of time and your images start at the point where a JPEG would have which means most images require little editing.
#2 is that the color and quality is excellent. It takes me a lot more tweaking in other programs to match DPP default quality.
#3 is that it is FREE and doesn't want to re organize or catalog all my folders for me.
