Bananasplit: The announcement was about "Canon" changing name to "Cannot".
I guess year-end is coming they gotta use their budget and try to do something.
vesa1tahti: Joining with Nikon, a new brand: Canikon. Or with Pentax: Pentagon (sorry: Pentacon).
You are right on Pentaprism + Contax. I am not sure about Pentakkusu Kabushiki-gaisha. It's a shame that I didn't get Pentax right since I was a Pentax fan since childhood :(
If you know Pentax = Pentacon + Contax.
a pink T5i?
pookipichu: I'm hoping for mirrorless medium format with 56 x 42mm sensor (or at least 53.9 x 40.4mm). It would revolutionize medium format and it's not technologically unfeasible. Build it and the buyers will come.
errrr....making a medium format camera vs making a BIGGER tablet/phone is a totally different story. everyone needs a phone so all sizes, all colours, all specs there will be buyers because they don't cost you over $1k (don't mention iphone 6). you may need a medium format but not everyone does.
some people lack of imagination? people go on dpreview all have visions/imaginations :)
it's technologically feasible but is it sustainably profitable?
4k is too much but with 4k you could sell more copies :)
audijam: no more LCD peeping....awesome.
part of the beauty of shooting film is you don't really know how it turns out and this camera captures this feature. awesome! but i still can't afford a leica so will continue with my EOS3.
to me, an new innovation should separate CMOS module from the body itself so users can always upgrade the module but keep the same body. just like we could use films from different manufactures.
HAHAHA....in-focus and WYSIWYG are totally different things. good luck!
audijam: for a good 5 seconds i thought this NX1 has EF mount. good job on copying Canon's lens.....
it won't be completely dead. Knowing this machine will get me 4k video but that won't convince me to jump over since switching from one system to another is a BIG investment. However, for people are about to start photography/videography this is definitely a machine worth to consider. HOWEVER, has samsung come out with pro-grade glasses yet? i don't know since i haven't tried samsung camera system yet. if i do bring a samsung to shoot a paid project - i will be fired on the spot.

WHAT?! SAY WHAT?! your viewfinder doesn't reflect what exactly your lens sees so what you see IS NOT what you get!
dude! the frameline is just a guidance for you to measure the subject distance!
i worked on films and i never knew how images would turn out until my negatives were developed. okay i am not skillful camera guy :(
oh...rangefinder cameras are not SLRs. you don't get what you see :)
GXR is a good one but i still like the look of SLR and ergonomics. R8/R9 with digital back module is a good one and would like to see Canon to follow.
no more LCD peeping....awesome.
just another panasoleicas......
alright! this is innovation! well done!
DAMN!!!!!!!!!!! this is sick!
okay i got a question. doe this new 24-105 help achieve "follow focus" when i move my camera around? OR.....only cameras with movie servo such as 7D2/70D can achieve it?
viking79: Canon should start buying sensors from Samsung so they can get 4k video in APS-C :) Is this really all Canon brings to the table after 5 years?
that's a score for samsung then...LOL!
you think japanese will buy @#%@#$ from korean?! it will never EVER happen.
