HowaboutRAW: Why are these raws so small. Imaging Resource posted 80D raws a few days ago, and they're on the order of 32MB to 46MB per file?

Lossless compression is right. The phenomena of smaller files happends with less noise...

There are no compression options for raw files...

Mikael Risedal: expose properly, what is that? something Canon has invented?
does not answer my question, why a new sensor in Canon, there are no need for better DR due the Canon boys

Again: because they can do it now!

Mikael Risedal: well David, I have been written about the poorer DR in Canon since 2008 and I wonder, WHY are Canon now changing their sensor read out and to less noise ?During all the years I have received the answer- Canon's DR is good enough, expose properly from the fan boys, and to me it make no sense to invest money in something Canon fan boys already said is good enough ( or is it as long Canon has no answer to Sony)

Well, the Canon sensor was good, now it's better! No need for a polemic around this. If you look at the tests, you allways got a mixed image. If you look at the comments, there is a lot of superflous, meaningless oppinion, including yous and thios one.

ovlov: But... But.. But... All I hear from the Canon apologists on here is that Canon's products are fine with the dynamic range they have. No improvement is needed!

I guess we can now safely say that even Canon disagrees with ALL of you.

DR matters, but it is only part of the equation. Resoliution matters too, but also here it's only part of the equation. I'm still saying that my D20's 8 Mpix are enough for getting correct and awsome pictures. But I still porefer my current 5DMIII for its fast AF, high ISO, higher resolution (yes, even if 8 is OK, 20 is better) and higher DR.

It's not a religion, it's simply technological progress.

In reply to:

Mikael Risedal: why put a new sensor inside a Canon ? there are no need to have a larger dynamic range according many comments during the years here at Dpreview and at other Canon sites. why not settle for the higher noise and banding as usual

Pffffff.... If you have nothing intelligent to contribute, then stay quiet!

PetaPi: I think Canon paid a lot of money to get a positive article about the 80D.
Or did some favours to Amazon.
Grasping at straws.
Canon now has better blacks ? Is that it ?

@PetaPi - how many are you paid to publish negatives on Canon? Don't be a fool and make a fool of yourself.

When I bought my first Canon, it was the best of his class. Then, later, Nikon and Sony (Minolta) took over the lead. I had invested in lenses, so I stayed with Canon. It's not a religious mantra for me to stay with Canon, but only to protect my invest in lenses. If Canon can now take over again, it's a standard situation in a race, where nobody will ever see the finish line.

There are better ways to achive a flawless workflow without edited images. Cropping and level adjustments are NOT edits of an image, except when done in very rare circumstances to change the perception of a picture.

scrup: Maybe everyone else will ban RAWs then we can really move to a universal lossless format. RAWs are good but I hate the thought of maintaining the software to open my images in 10-15 years.

JPEG at least is no "universal lossless" format. RAW is not a format but a category of formats.

This is out of scope.

Osvaldo Cristo: "The camera will be able to process 30TB of data every night"

Ahaaa! The NSA big brothers will need more disks for their spy computers to record that massive amount of data...

Who would be able to provide you with a backup copy in case of a failure of your computer?

jabilson007: Completed in 2022?! Who is working on this, the Canon 7D team?!

7 years for a project existing on paper until now is very optimistic. I would love to be the project manager of this!

pwmoree: So 1000 euro equals 1390 usdollar. Why is this lens 39 percent more expensive here in Europe? The 390 $ difference almost buys you a plane ticket to the USA to go and get one and have a weekend in NY included..

Proof of payment IS required! not that easy! If they let you pass, you are a lucky guy!

I can assure you, when you pass customs and don't have the proof of payements, YOU will pay them!

If you buy in the US (as an European), you need to pay sales tax and customs dues at the arrival. And please keep your receipts ... as there may be problems afterwards.

Neodp: "Here's your sign."

Gimp is free folks. What you spent with Adobe doesn't make it better.

ufraw yes, needs your camera color profile (file for ufraw and two settings) and a one-time setup (for Raw). Then the app that smoothly transitions to the Gimp.

Gimp is the kitchen sink. Will you complain now about all it can do? Don't forget the numerous Gimp plug-ins; because you don't have to do everything from scratch. It's easy. It's all there. Any platform. This way, why not try it and use the parts you need. That's the point. It does all that.

Many times we need to back up and ask what our goals are. Gimp does a better job for what ever you want to do. Nothing is missing. It's better for the profit minded professional and it's better for the enthusiast.

Future upgrades come with. No tiers and tricks. It just keeps improving everyday. There's nearly unlimited tutorials online. No camera brand app beats it. It's one set to learn and so your best time investment. The only limit is you.

Cmyk support is the least of my needs and I'm working also in print. I do cmyk conversion during the generation of my PDF file. But to be honest, there are reasons to do the conversion at an early stage!

Biological_Viewfinder: I'm so sick of the Nickel & Dime you to death economy of our age.

My smart phone was $500 (free with signup, but I'm sure that I'll pay that $500 along the way). But if I want to do so, I can spend THOUSANDS MORE and my smart phone even better! With APPS....
-
Adobe and TV companies and car dealerships, EVERYONE is getting in on this new economy. They all say, well it's only this much per month. Yeah, but if you add up this and that and that and this and that and this and that...

@$(# adobe!
I don't mind buying software, but these guys are thieves.

You pay the phone provider the service to phone, not to own!

16bit images are important for editing, colour correction and stuff like that. The final image can be a (high quality but small) JPEG image, and nobody objects.

This is strange (c) law - as usual.

From where I come, you may take pictures and commercialize those of monuments that are permananently displayed in public places. The creator of the artwork has the right to be named, but that's it.

There would have been no problem, if the picture would have been taken to display the Corean war in a non-profit event. But as the stamps are sold for profit, this changes the fact. Notice also, that neither the artist nor the place of exhibition have been named.
