Gimli son of Gloin: Outstanding shots here.

Weird to see such an old camera as the a6000 outperforming newer ones.

Lost 1/2 if its value already....

Boky: Could I use the Speedlight 430EX flash and 24-105L f4 lens with this camera?

You can. For the lens you will need the adapter though, hopefully included in some future bundles.

Seeky: So the M6 is the same as the M3 except slightly better AF, an extra dial and higher fps... for 80% higher price? Mmm great deal!

not *combined* with dual pixel
so M3 doesn't focus video by touch screen.

supersport100: It seems a great opportunity for an as light as possible ILC, especially for hiking/climbing (Focus on landscape and environmental portraits, some video). The lenses ef-m 11-22 and ef-m 22 f/2 are exactly right for that and supposedly have excellent price/performance ratio.
I wonder if sony would be really that much better in a bundle like that - for the purpose described???

M/M2 - no dual pixel - for video not an option....
but I wouldn't mind if it was even smaller, yes.

dual pixel combined with touch screen are the major upgrades, i guess.

Stacey_K: https://www.dpreview.com/reviews/sigma-85mm-f1-4-art-lens/5

Is a perfect example of why sharpness isn't something at the top of my list for a portrait lens. I'm still using a Nikon 85mm f1.4D because of the rendering and how little PP the files need -for portraits-. If I was going to go out and shoot buildings, yeah, I'd use something else.

One may want to have details in the eyes and hair. Or in little hairs on the skin.
And for precise post processing lots of detail can help, just to split unwanted detaisl from pretty details. Maybe its not a lens for out of camera pleasing Portraits, but then a much cheaper lens will do the Job just as well, I agree.

Bill Leigh Brewer: I have used my 5DsR on three jobs now. I'm getting ready to return it, primarily because of the crushed blacks the camera delivers. Rishi, you mention that a new ACR may rectify that issue. I'm not sure what ACR is, and I'm not clear whether that change is a firmware change that could fix my camera or would only fix new cameras. I usually import my raw files into Lightroom where I slide the highlights down and the overall exposure up to compensate. Then I slide the shadows up as needed. With my 5D Mark III and my A7RII I get good results--the shadows open up nicely with acceptable noise. With the 5DsR the shadows are harder to open up and the noise gets ugly fast. I'm ready to call this a "fail" for the 5DsR, unlike your tests of ISO tolerance, etc., where you say the 5DsR is improved over the 5D Mark III. I'd love to hear your thoughts on this. Thanks.

I haven't ever used capture one.
But I think compared to creating a new profile in Adobe, getting a new software, learning to use it, adapt workflow is still much more cost/effort.

supersport100: I hiked the PAcific Crest Trail in 2012 and a lot of smaller hikes in my lifetime. This camera is definately too heavy for any ambitious hiking.

In fact I don't want to be limited in my perspective any longer.
You guys just convinced me.

Carrying this 1Kg camera is the ultimate choice for hiking. Why? Because it is a matter of fitness anyway. And it will be easily available. You can just hang it around your hip belt, no problem on a hike. nd, when you want to take an image it is very likely that this happens to be the break spot anyway. Your images will be Way better compared to a smallish camera with their low image qualiy.

now I take a hike.

I believe I reflected quite well.

Great sensors also fit into lighter cameras.
Weight is definately a big topic in climbing & hiking. No way around that.

I did say, I accept other takes on this, meaning other peoples' priorities. But 1Kg of weight is not the 'ideal' hiking camera generally. Can't change my view on that, sorry.

You could aswell say it's ignorance if you ignore that smaller cameras have good sensors too perfectly suitable for the job with a huge handling advantage in this scenario.

But I accept that there are different takes on this.

Then this depends on your policy. It's easier to stop a rope team to take an image with a pocketable camera rather than a DSLR. So advising not to use pocketables even though it would be perfevtly possible is your choice.

It is quite obvious that you can not stop the team at some very epic sites in mountaineering while smaller cameras can still take stunning images from those places.

the difference is how the cameras are to be carried and/or stowed and certainly the weight.

I would consider a A6300 as an interesting balance even though its alo on the heavy side.

I myself also have guide license and I see a lot of problems if one member of a rope team brings a dslr (or similar), while others just want to climb. It means, that you have to stop the team to take a picture as it can obly really be carried inside the backpack. You can't take full advantage of a dslr while rigged into a rope team, really. In fact, it limits your photography to safe sections or breaks.

It may be a different story if all rope team members want to focus on photography while climbung.

And, for long distance hiking there is no chance whatsoever for any camera above 500g.

Well, pro DSLRs have been carried to the top of Everest. That still doesn't make it an 'optimum' for hiking/mountaineering.

I've participated at an expedition whre the mountain guide did not permit carrying a dslr due to safety reasons for the team who are all tied to the same rope...and added weight.

Yes, Eric Chan posted in Adobe Forum,
find the link in my post above.

Assumably, Adobe kind of doubts that anyone would use the 5Ds Standard Profile anyway for a 5Ds. Anyone concerned about Color creates own profiles. The rest probably prefers contrasty curves.

psa32: I have 5d mk 3 and wish to switch to 5ds but i am kind of uncertain for the reason of the low light issue and the fact of it s a less flexible camera, think it needs the proper light... .
I do some events and still life..product pack shots...and portraits

In therory 5Ds is more flexible than 5DIII as it has a lot more functions. RGB metreing sensor, iTR Focusing, more resolution, better Auto ISO functions, anti flicker, better Dynamic Range and no real hit on noise performance in prints.

Only if you ned more than 5 fps and ISO above 12800 (and you could still underexpose 12800 and brighten in postprocessing) the 5DIII would be more flexible.

You can get a medium profile from Adobe here:

https://forums.adobe.com/thread/1872272?start=0

personally, I am planning to create an x-rite color checker profile with Adobe DNG Profile editor. Probably in combination with the faithful camera curve. This is what I do with 5DIII currently and I expect comparable results with the 5Ds.

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

Can we not just accept that there are people who do not want or need to recover shadows by that many stops? Just as we can accept that a lot of People will take advantage of the increase base ISO DR.

In reply to:

supersport100: Well, not so happy here…
Seems like the 7DII sensor with its old design is better at ISO 3200 than the 80D.
Is the new “sensor tech” only a step forward for extreme shadow recovery? Ignoring general low light performance which is of much higher value?
Please, tell me I’m wrong.

The ISO invariance test lets me compare at ISO 3200.
