Phil Flash: That orange ring around the lens will really help street shooters stay discreet and unnoticed.

Product pictures do show the extra black ring.

Does the XV have mounts/slots for a wrist strap or a proper strap? Pics I've seen so far don't appear to show any.

wolfgang: How is the mechanical shutter sound compared to the x-t3?

Info here says it's quieter.

vscd: The new Canon 1DX III has 5.5k movie@60fps... and I guess the developing started 2 years ago. I see no problem for 8k@30fps for a new cam. I would maybe doubt it reads out the full sensor without crop, but as 8k are quite a huge resolution it would fit a 48Mpixel sensor quite well.

I admit: It's hard to believe that Canon will beat every other company so heavy on specs in one camera, but, they maybe thought: "we don't bring out cams with single specs but A bug hammer after 3-4 years of doing nothing." And hell, let's call it EOS- R 5 like the Canon 5D back then.

Interesting that it should have such a number after two EOS-R bodies with no Number at all. Eh'? (Both old cams were mediocre with existing sensors just to keep te crowd on the brand, maybe.)

So, I expect something huge or nothing at all ;)

A YouTube upload has called it an EOs-RS rather than R5. How would that play?

dinoSnake: And still, yet another Sony APS-C a6xxx camera with a 1/4000 second top speed and 1/160 X-sync. That's consumer-grade shutter specs in a prosumer-level (and priced) body.

It's still a complete embarrassment.

When was the last time you used 1/4000 sec. I can't remember the last time I used 1/1000. It was probably back in film days for motorsport but I generally did OK with 1/500.
Using 1/8000 @ 2.8, what ISO would you have to use in normal light conditions?

At that price and with so many negatives I don't see it as worth a Silver Award. Recommended with reservations maybe?

Video-vs-photo: No Phase Detect AF or Dual Pixel AF is no, no for every youtuber. Also none from youtubers stream directly to youtube! Stream to you tube is function for journalist not for youtubers!!! So this camera is epic fail!
Also Canon's are from few that does not have clean HDMI out which is needed for live stream or external recording.

Several of the YT-ers that I follow do stream direct to YT especially for Q&A's so they can interact with viewers. Quality is usually poor, they often use phones, but if this does stream effectively it will be another good thing for live vlogging.

Decree NiSi, one that automatically divorces the filters from your camera.

Putting up the film simulations for Carey's shots would be good, the same as for Dan's. Carey is more artistic than Dan? Let the battle commence!

rafaelinux: Seriously 6 months - 1 year for a patch to enable lower fps Tha you already have?
Canon is slow as a snail.

They decided that they could spare one programmer in a dusty corner somewhere to get the job done, hence he has to finish one set of firmware before he can get onto the next camera version.

worldaccordingtojim: The bigger question is why are they modifying themselves to look like an alien. I can understand the eyes, nose, and blemishes, but why the pointy jaw line.

It's funny, I didn't notice jaw line changes and as I write this I haven't gone back and looked. What I did notice was the sometimes extreme changes to the size and shape of the noses. There only seems to be one ideal type.

AshleyMC: Jordan is the invisible video technician. Chris is quiet, appears unhappy, and takes uncharacteristically uninspired photographs. I could have done the same show by hiring a local video person and having, say, "Reviews Editor" Carey Rose work with "Senior Editor" Barney Britton.

Had me smiling right through. I started digital with a Sony floppy disc camera. If you want a challenge try one of those. I saw one on the table. You might be surprised. I still have mine and I think it still works. Pics likely to be more arty than precise but...…………...

D Sharp: Disappointing that a camera at this cost does not accept a cable remote. Smartphone remotes are just too limiting.

In the paragraph below the video.
"The camera has HDMI, USB-C, wired remote, headphone and microphone sockets. Wi-Fi and Bluetooth are built-in."

As an LX3 and LX7 owner I rather like these images. I'd also appreciate the extra telephoto. Looking at the exposure details, I'd rather like to know what setting was used. iA or one of the PASM modes.

Handevision as a manufacturer's name doesn't do it any favours, being more at the Fisher-Price end of the naming spectrum. Iberit is fine but they could have thought a bit harder about a company name.

Not even having a camera on my phone, I am thinking of upgrading (lol), I'm wondering why I would need all of my shots to be taken at f/1.8 coupled with the need to use 1/10000 sec for some landscapes. Does seem to go against all of the rules. Am I missing something? Teach me something here.
Pics are OK but some dull weather shots would have been useful. Days like those here are rare for much of the year in the UK. High contrast HDR not always the way to go though.

barrym1966: "Image processed to taste in Adobe Camera Raw, exposed for the highlights with shadows lifted. With a Nikon D5, Canon EOS-1D X Mark II or Sony a9, this processing would result in a much noisier image.
Nikon 24-120mm F4 @ 24mm | ISO 64 | 1/160 sec | F8"

Actually on the Sony A99ii you can lift those shadows to +100 in lightroom with no noise.

ALSO, the subjects are still extremely dark like no shadows have been lifted?

Is the raw available for me to play with?

(ps i just shot my 32nd wedding of the year with the A99ii in Italy and those pictures destroy that sample, it looks like a guests photo in comparison!)

I think this shot is posted just to illustrate a point. The clouds and light make the picture. A small amount of fill in flash could brighten everything up and make the group more individually identifiable, but for this shot that wasn't needed IMO.

Shinto blessing? Light is important with that religion.

What is he using here? A Sony camera, what one, and one, two or three, or may be a universal 42mm adaptor?
Nice shots, he has a good eye.
A while back I though of getting a Canon 5D (classic) and trying this sort of thing but was then offered a Nikon F7000 kit at an unrefusable price, could use that body I suppose.
