Protogonus1: It's undistinguished (compared to the X-Pro2) and even ugly.

"Passe and ugly' !
I think it looks great !
Protogonus could you please post a photo of your self for comparison ?

It’s less than half the price of an xpro 2

mr_landscape: I can give them free professional advice.
To make this happen minimum 3 objectives required:

1] Premium cameras should have different from Bayer array sensor
RIVAL: Sigma SDQH [low efficiency of Bayer sensors in terms of resolution makes me sick ]
2] Ultra portable pocket camera with APS sensor and tilting screen [RX100V? S#cking b#lls]
RIVAL: Ricoh GRII
3]Premium cameraphone which finally outrun N808 and Panasonic CM-1.
Technologies of `12 and `14 years are on the top [i am just smiling].

Definitely this will not happen - not any chance [corp is to fat to react in a fast pace], so everything will remain the same for another couple of years.

But in reality i don't care, because i have found hardware for my needs and developed my personal workflow.

Actually Chuckmet, 2021 is 31 months away, so I am not sure I would be splitting hairs over the statement about 'a couple of years.'

jonby: Quite a few valuable additions there by the sounds of it. Some of the X1D changes should really have been there at first release, but better late than never.

Jonby now you sound like my wife

So utterly sick to death of reading comments criticising firmware updates on the basis that the features 'should really have been there at first release'. It is a fantastic part of modern photography that some manufacturers up-feature their gear with regular firmware updates. FFS support them rather than just criticising.

Valps: " the EVF can take a fraction of a second to engage when one’s eye is brought to the finder. This sounds like nitpicking, but those used to an optical EVF might find they miss shots, as I did, due to this."

That's all I needed to hear.
NEXT!

Tom_A: I find it a really interesting product. One question: would lenses with OIS be able to function with OIS on this camera? I don’t think so.
I understand that it will mainly be used on tripods and steadicam-like contraptions, yet “simple” in lens OIS would be a benefit for hand held shots at this high resolution.

I use the original BMPCC with a lumix 12-35 using OIS and it works well, no problems at all

Let me ask, did you work previously as a marketing exec at Kodak ?

Even then Canon are too late already. So many people have jumped ship to other brands and simply moved on. And, to be frank, FF mirrorless is not necessarily the sweet spot for mirrorless cameras anyway. Unless Canon produced a body that would allow me to use all of my legacy Canon lenses, then I will probably just sell them and move onto mirrorless medium format, which is now at a price point that is more than FF, but not in the next galaxy anymore. Personally, for walk around and travel photography etc, I prefer the size/weight characteristics of mirrorless APSC. When I want maximum quality, I suspect that I will dump the 5DSR and buy a MF mirrorless

mr.izo: wait, you can't change disk in this? not very smart move...

Personally not sure if a changeable drive is worth considering. The problem with the well intentioned suggestions on this thread, is that they are vast and varied. At the end of the day, the device, if it works as intended, already ticks a huge number of boxes for people. It simply cant tick every box for everyone. Personally I would rather a well sealed case with a permanent SSD in place than a changeable drive. I have used a variety of these drives over they years starting with the Epson P 3000, and more recently the excellent (but more fragile) WD Mypassport pro wireless. I would shift to an SSD if the solution proves workable. The paring with an iPad is excellent and far better than just a simple and tiny LCD that some posters seem to be seeking

Why? On how many jobs or trips are you going to produce more than 1tb of data?

Ernest M Aquilio: I know I am in the minority here when I admit I don't understand all the hype and hoopla over Canon and mirror-less. I was under the impression that Canon's current line up was sufficient for most peoples needs, albeit with some redundant camera models. It would behoove Canon to update a few lenses IMO, 50mm f/1.4 is in dire need of a refresh, the 20mm f/2.8 and some others. The 5D IV and 80D are workhorses that are proven to still get the job done with an unmatched ecosystem

The hype is for two reasons :
1 most people who have immersed themselves in mirrorless technology are highly impressed by what it offers and use it more and more, if not exclusively

2 many of the same people have a large collection of Canon lenses that they would like to use with a high end mirrorless camera

May not be your cup of tea, but for a whole lotta people it represents important news

Nukunukoo: Apple. Complacency and hubris is something you can no longer afford, you better game up.

GabrielZ, dont agree. The time is coming where the standard of amp and DAC in an iPhone should be much better than it currently is. These are not cheap phones, and Apple simply has not moved ahead with improving sound handling since the days of the iPod

GabrielZ, that is comparing them with the sound output of other phones. Try comparing the sound output from an iPhone into a set of proper headphones, using even CD quality files, with the sound produced when you run the files from your iPhone through a dedicated DAC amp, such as the Chord Mojo, or an Oppo HA2 and then see what you think of the DAC and the amp in an iPhone. The iPhone may match up to a Samsung phone, but it simply wont properly drive a premium set of headphones or IEMs. Not even nearly

People have been saying this for years, and I have always thought it nonsense until now. There are one or two areas where the iPhone tech is falling well behind. Firstly in terms of photography as you have alluded. Second is in terms of hi fi sound. Apple have been peddling the same tired bike for years using lossey sound compression and poor quality DACs and amps in their phones. Ten years ago when memory was expensive, I could understand but now they could easily offer better sound codecs, and far better amp/dac combos in their phones. The world is moving on without them in this regard

Paul JM: It costs the same as an Xpro 2, weighs 20% more and has a tiny little sensor ?
Why ?

RED i, really ? I would have thought it was a discussion about the merits of reduced sensor size in compact mirrorless cameras, and the trade off of sensor size vs function, but it seems that a pile of MFT shooters, presumably including yourself, take this as a personal affront.
