  • I'd love for the D850 to light a fire under Canon that would bring their body price/performance more in line with/better than what Nikon offers.  Looking at the D850 specs certainly made me think ...
  • It won't hurt the price, but I've long since stopped believing it will help much. Look at the 6DIi--it's priced and spec'd to compete with the 6D, not with anything from Sony or Nikon. Just like ...
  • To see where the 6DII is deficient.  Other cameras (like the 1DXII, 5DIV, 80D and a host of Nikon and Sony cameras) do better with this sort of test.  If you've never found yourself lifting ...
  • Not bad. Better than my 6D.  If someone gave me one for free today I'd abandon my 6D tomorrow No one's going to do that, though. If I want a 6DII I'll have to pay for it. It's not $2000 better than ...
  • Replied in Full frame 80D
    Anything less will be disappointing. Anything more will be a pleasant surprise. This will probably be my next camera..in about 5 years.
  • Looking at your gear list, I don't think it's unreasonable for you to consider switching.  You have a few lenses, but two are EF-S and would need to be replaced anway. As for me, I've got too many ...
  • This is sort of what I was wondering. Does the coupling efficiency vary enough that a variety of sizes could be use to measure color directly?  Could they be aligned to detect polarization?  Or ...
  • Not if you're engineering something that is also less expensive .  I think a lot of the so-called crippling in most cameras is the result of engineering choices made to reduce manufacturing costs ...
  • Thats not crippling, though  crippling is when you take time and engineering resources to make something worse.  If it takes effort to include something, then not including it isn't really ...
  • i think you may not have understood what I was asking. is there a headphone jack that's disabled by software?  Focus aids that are left unusable? The codec might be an example though  is it ...
  • Created discussion thread Is the 6DII really crippled?
    Every time there's a Canon release that isn't a 1-series, it seems like people complain that the camera is crippled to protect sales of the next higher model. Is that really the case? When I think ...
  • Replied in Hmmm...
    Youre looking at the wrong market.  He's probably referring to the market for brand cheerleaders.  Ten years ago it was mostly people posting on the Canon boards about how much better Nikons were. ...
  • because of the 6DII announcement. There are a dozen good reasons to move to Sony, or Fuji, or Nikon, or just selling all your gear and taking up coin collecting. Something gaining significant ...
  • Which is good.  Had it been exciting I would eventually convince myself to upgrade.  I shouldn't.  My 6D has many more years of use left in it.
  • Benefits or challenges.  I'm just wondering if there's anything interesting that happens when the pixel size becomes comparable to the wavelength.
  • Created discussion thread Optical limits to pixel size
    Clearly there are engineering and material limits to pixel size, but I'm having a hard time thinking of the optical ones.  I would think that the detection may get different as pixel sizes get ...
  • As others have mentioned, there is an IQ improvement with well designed ultra-high megapixel camera. If you want to get an idea of where resolution might go in the future, a good place to look ...
  • It makes sense to use it. I doubt that the Sony sensor would improve sales enough to justify the significant additional cost. At the end of the day Canon (and Sony and Nikon) are companies that are ...
  • There are only great cameras anymore, you've just become incredibly spoiled.  There's no perfect camera, but even a middle-of-the-road camera phone is pretty amazing at what it does. And yes, great ...
  • They just opened an Amazon bookstore near me.  It has  a cafe, but not nearly so big.  Baby steps I guess.
