Entropius: So Canon just invented the E-410. Cool!
Yeah, but with usable ISO 800.
photo nuts: "The focusing speed of the updated hybrid phase and contrast-detect design remains unchanged, which unfortunately means that it still lags behind current mirrorless cameras from Sony, Olympus and Panasonic."
- Thanks Canon for your LACK of progress in the contrast AF department. I can now happily stay with the super OM-D.
Like you were going to swap back anyway.
Shunda77: Your sensor's so old that Noah was told to put two of them on the ark.
Canon can rebut with "Your profits are thinner than your pancake zooms!"
peevee1: Wait, are you serious? 18-55 STM is push-pull? All plastic (including mount) for $150 in kit???
Sure doesn't appear like it from the pictures.
thx1138: Actually this product makes some sense as compared to the totally unnecessary T5i, but I wonder if it means Canon's heart is not really in mirrorless. An EOS-M2 + several more lenses would have than either of these cameras.
Maybe in terms of exciting camera nerds like those of us on the forum, but would it have meant much in terms of sales?
(unknown member): Canon's answer to ILC? Not going all in on the M as an ILC solution? Works for me.
I think they are just trying to be disruptive as possible to mirrorless systems while hanging on to high DSLR sales. I don't think they want a top selling mirrorless system because that market is peanuts compared to their compact and DSLR systems.
Benarm: Canon's second failed attempt at taking a jab at mirrorless market. The longer they avoid producing something competitive to NEX/Oly/Panny, the more Canon will lag behind. And why would they put a 2009 sensor on it? Fail.
I love when people say Canon is lagging behind. Should we compare Sony and Olympus profits to Canon?
This doesn't seem smaller enough to matter in terms of total size with lens mounted or in terms of total kit size.
It's small the the 40mm on, but that's not exactly an everyday lens at 64mm equivalent.
I get that they feel the specs of the T4i were still good enough to compete (and I think that is true) but why even bother releasing the same camera again? At least they could have called it the T4ii or 650Ds or whatever.
It's probably a smart move though as 650D prices were tanking. People going in to buy a new DSLR might be fooled into buying the newest model (even though it is 99% the same).
yudhir: What is new?
cd cooker: The CEO of Canon should be fired! How could he let this happen! T2i,T3i,T4i,T5i all use basically the same sensor!!
And they sell very well, how could the CEO let that happen!
robmanueb: Nikon Coolpix A killer. Faster lens, quarter of the price and it has an optical viewfinder.
5.6/1.5= 3.7x larger sensor.
And I'm not even a demigod!
CameraLabTester: The film advance lever should be made into a generator to charge the batteries...
36 clicks for another "roll"? :)
BingoCharlie: There's already a very nice version of this camera available: the Pentax Q with the 01 Prime Lens. Same size. Great design. Demonstrated quality. Similar pricing. Plus you have interchangeable lenses so the camera can grow with you. Hard to see why someone should choose this over the Q.
You can't get a Q and the 01 for $230 and it doesn't come with a viewfinder.
And then there is the matter of the missing film wind lever, too. ;)
Maybe we can buy it just for the viewfinder! $239 is a bargain compared to what Sony and Nikon want for theirs.
AllMankind: Are you serious??
Is this what dpr has become?
A prostitute to rumor sites.
Maybe better to shutter the site now..
This made me laugh. Not because I think you are correct, but I can picture an uppity guy with a monocle going "Harumph!" to conclude your statement.
Daniel from Bavaria: They look great and I loved my X100, but now I will hold my breath for the 1.4 23 for my X-Pro1. I will not buy another camera, no! I won't buy another camera ..... no, I will not! Still, what a nice camera.... !nope!
23mm f1.4 will probably cost almost as much as a x100s anyway!
MrSkelter: This doesn't look much better than my K-01 with a FA limited lens. More testament to the Pentax than a slight to the Fuji though wow that lens is soft up close with the white flowers.
I don't think this is "special" in terms of quality. It's a good APS-C sensor with a good prime on it. There are plenty of other combos that can give similar results. What is special is the form factor and viewfinder and that's what people are excited about.
makofoto: Another GoPro article yet DpR still won't review the most popular camera in the world?!
Curious what the most popular camera is in the world according to makofoto.
deep7: These photos are epic. The photographer combines a real artistic vision with sound technical knowledge and I bet he is sought after for his work. His use of a tilt/shift lens is stellar.
That said, I note all the photos in the article only have the bride. While my favourite part of shooting weddings is the brief time away from the throngs, when I am able to be a bit artistic, I tend to focus on the couple in the arty shots, for a good reason, duh! I'd love to see some TS shots with both bride and groom.
