Would not be surprised if Canon gives some funding for this sort of thing, helps sales or not user selling their EF lens. Besides Sony does not make great affordable lens - so win-win for Canon lens owners - traitors they may be using a Sony cam !!! ;)

I could only see 1 single foot print on this fake Ariz desert pic - NASA has got great ways to fake it so well !!

It is thought when sun starts turning red and ballooning out the 'green zone' of life will reach Mars after earth is similar to Venus, and the water at poles melts and at least some life will form on Mars, OR at least after Trump! gets earth blown to pieces from a brainless Nuke war, maybe 1 billion yrs after that.

And yes Trump's dad is an Orangutan, that's where he gets the hair & color & brains !! ;)

bobbarber: I have an earlier model of this camera, sx230 hs, which I have found incredibly useful. I carried it with me in South America, and when I fell and crushed the camera in my pocket, straightened out the crumpled metal in front of the lens, bought a new rear screen off ebay for $15, and she's still ticking.

The pros are small size, incredible array of zooms, ability to take movies, and CHDK, which works on my camera at least, and probably will on this one soon, giving me raw, 1/100,000 shutter speed, intervalometer, etc. etc. etc.

I'm going through an important life event right now which I need to document, and the trusty SX230 HS was the first camera I reached for. It does the job and gives me the versatility to get a lot of different kinds of shots. I'd glad I have enough common sense not to sneer at cameras like this. Travel zooms are quite cool.

Huge diff the sx230 has a useful 12mp sensor that was so much better than recent 16/20mp sensors - way too much for a itty-bitty 1/2.3" sensor.

Shame Canon has gone from good useful sensible sensor to these silly 20mp sensors - no interest from me for this cam - give me a nice new sx260HS anyday (or even the troublesome sx280HS !!!) !!!!!!!

The Pentax K-1 is just so clean when shifted! (compare it to all recent cams!)

It should be a feature ALL advanced cams should implement.

It would be truly wonderful if real-time or very close to it, then useful for many more pic types -assuming 4 actual capture times then it is landscape, still life, or studio type pics only for now !!!!

Good job Pentax/Ricoh !!! Now everyone else climb aboard !!!!

Demontis: I dont get it....with pixel shift softer than the D810??
Is it possible that something has been done wrong here?

The highest resolution test is the b&w print left of center, the background is especially hard, the highest rez is the frame around the window.

The K1 shifted is clean and zero moire, very nice rez too, all other cams that resolve any of the the background or all areas of print, have color moire and sometimes mutilate the actual pattern.

Mac McCreery: I'm a bit thick. But why does the preview on the text default to a smaller image when certain cameras are used?

Diff resolutions of the cams ?? No ?

Coyote_Cody: Most of us know that 4kHD is not terribly important, but why not the best-in-class 2kHD from a non Pro Canon DSLR ??

Except for some models (and not ML w/ Raw), Canon 2kHD (1080p) is really good 720p video, as good as any !!

So Canon really, why not class leading 2kHD if no 4kHD , afterall you started the whole DSLR video craze !!??

Where is this DCI standard you refer to used ? Certainly in no home video in the USA, maybe elsewhere?

2kHD & 4kHD are both currently available in the USA via Satellite, over the air (2kHD-maybe) & cable tv, NOT DCI at all (doubtful viewable by any/most displays used in home - PC maybe) !!

So I refer to what most of us have in our cams, and we view and can buy, not WHOEVER uses DCI (commercial theatres?).

So you post DCI 2k to Youtube or Vimeo or somewhere else, who can view it ??

I think you obfuscate the issue !!

Gesture: Dynamic range lags behind the competition

Gesture, NOT in any picture you ever took well & with any skill - NO, you drank the kool-aid, and lost independent thinking capability - sad !!

Show me ANY pic where 1 stop makes a diff ?!!!

Lens difference makes more a diff than your stupid DR comparison - but the you must be able to take SIlly Fan hat off don't you ? Thimk !!

Link | Posted on May 6, 2016 at 00:46 UTC

Both better color AND resolution - look at wood print left of center, the background has color noise for all cams but the K1, and the resolution is significantly better !

Can it be seen in 8x10 no, but then you do NOT need more than a good 12mp for 8x10 do you - correct all you 30mp+ monkeys ??

Do you know what 2kHD is ? Apparently NOT !
2kHD is 1080p moron !! 2k refers to 1920 !!!!

Wow, and we let you have a computer !!

Maybe my eyes better than yours but I absolutely see the diff of 720p to 1080p !!

720x1280 vs 1080x1920 = more than 6% !!!!!!

Maybe your TV is not up/down casting it well, my does fine for this but still a huge diff, spot it everytime !!

Much of commercial TV is really just 720p rez or even DVD rez, seems fine for a story based series/movie but for something that can shine in full 2kHD, 720p is poor substitution !!

Go to an eye doctor or new tv ??

bernardly: What's wrong with DxoMark—are they sleeping? How long are they going to take to review this camera's sensor performance? There is not even a stub preview page for the 80D on their site, for shame.

They are confused to a point that they are immobile, they actually have to create new sentences for the performance of the 80D & its just too hard !! Originality of words hurts their heads !! They are resting hoping for complete sentence construction after a long long rest - next week maybe !! ;)

sh10453: To each their own, but I never liked or cared for the circular bokeh at all.
I find such circles to be very distracting.

Beyond 'broadcasting' those 'bubbles' as art in/of themselves, can't say I like the bokeh.

But as the descrip says, 3 groups of 3 lens, so these are likely a bit better/sharper than the orig, but have fun with that bokeh.

Nothing to see here, move along, move along ! ;)

Timbukto: Solutions to non-existent problems that are somewhat successful in the camera industry. Low MP sensors with no anti-aliasing filters. Solves the huge problem of applying tasteful sharpening in post in preference towards forced stair-stepping, moire, aliasing artifacts. If we are talking science and technology, then it needs to be admitted that images captured with AA filters intact actually *increase* fidelity.

Also audiophile industry has numerous successful products that solve non-existent problems.

Not angry just that it seemed the earlier response did not get the reference. And I explained the MC ref, most ppl barely have heard of that vs the many other silly other silly overpriced under perfroming brands!

Bought some pure silver non shielded 22 gauge wire @ $15 a foot for running from input RCA conns to circuit board of an amp, not worth it but where do you get pure silver wire from but high end overpriced audio shops ?? The 99.99999 copper wire was almost the same price !!

The moral of the story is - you see a fool with money - someone will sell the fool some expensive nonsense !!

To support the above with actual tested science, many a year ago Monster connect cables were tested against 'off the shelf relatively plain inexpensive' cables using frequencies (conditioned signals such as square waves, saw-tooth and even white noise) to test the 'bandwidth' limits & such between them.

To summarize, ONLY the cables that had poorly grounded/shielded connections or very pathetic gauge (very small gauge) were actually inferior to the vastly more expensive Monster Cables, so the $10 cable tested as well as the $150 MC cables !!

Matter of fact some cheap cable did BETTER than did MC !!

So I simply mentioned a brand that is fairly well known, and was/is part of the hocus-pocus world of 'golden ears' (or is it Harry Potter?) or for this exact subject 'Golden Eyes'.

Comprehend ?

Photography is so similar to the audiophile crowd, more concern for h/w than the actual subject of the hobby - music or photos !!

Did you say ultra expensive Monster Cable products - how dare you !! ;)

On article Small but mighty: hands on with the Panasonic GX85/GX80 (315 comments in total)

With this 5-axis IBIS, I wonder why not offer the full color mode shifting or even double.multiple exposure for higher rez shots ?

Is it a degree of 'preordained' movement (pixel shift for color) vs IBIS which I Assume is using feedback from sensor to prevent overcomp movement ?

Anyone know ?

In reply to:

Coyote_Cody: I still find it disappointing that Canon will NOT put IBIS in some models of their cams, especially since some models will never have L lens and may never have IS lens, such as the M or Rebel/xxxD cams - even a half ass version of IS, not the nice IBIS this or some Sony's have !!

Real greedy A'holes Canon !!

Incompetent AF in some cams, M's for one and no IBIS to name just 2 shortcomings !

Makes a user want to switch !!

Missed the point huh John C Tharp ???????
