  • This is true, but this is also what makes the R7 even more appealing The TC is $500. That effectively makes the R7 a $1000 more expense, and you actually get the second body. Sweet deal I would ...
  • What you described is more of an augmentation for reach rather than backup. The R7 primarily exists to put more pixels at the center of the frame. Or, in some cases as a cheaper camera with all ...
  • That is a much more relevant topic, but is also based on a different tech basis altogether. The readout speed factor that affects rolling shutter for example is a direct consequence of BSI stacked ...
  • So there must be at least one person on this forum who was planning to buy a R3 but would probably just be happy with R5 instead if only it has more drive speed options for electronic shutter. ...
  • OK. You probably just described every business that has releases more than one product
  • There is some extra code at least, without writing which you won't get multiple modes. It's not as if they had to do more work to limit that capability This isn't about easy or hard. It's about ...
  • The OP covered that in one of his followups. Seems he can get sharp pictures with same lens as well https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/66380917 Would be good to understand when and how often bad ...
  • When R5 was launched, which Canon camera were these electronic shutter limitations protecting? Which are they protecting today? While I agree with your definition, it makes even less sense to call ...
  • Then I doubly insist its a cliché. How best to dilute the point then to overuse a term at every opportunity. If it's a cripple hammer whenever a company didn't do something they could have done ...
  • Perhaps cliché in action. The R5 came before any of the later bodies improved on this. Perhaps they started crippled
  • It's surely looks possible as the R7 and R10 have shown. The only question is whether Canon will provide it via firmware update
  • I would not have paid $2500 as well just for the grip option (not to mention, the grip itself would me more too). If Canon launched the R7 essentially the exact same camera but with the grip ...
  • Because you cannot have the right amount of consumer rights. Here in HK, all sales are final, orders are usually not cancellable, and returns are only allowed in first 7-10 days only in case the ...
  • Fair enough. Another example that is not black in color to the eye, which was the point
  • Technically you are right, because there are no perfect black bodies. But stars are often cited as one of the most practical examples, so there you are. Maybe I can qualify that the sun exhibits ...
  • Apparently we have been convinced to think so. Nikon never needed a white color to cool their lenses, while Canon needs it on every one of theirs,even the tiny 70-200 f4 variants, but then an ...
  • I have a feeling you may be surprised. Try it Only a better argument for what I was saying. Direct contact from inside will move heat in-to-out whatever minimal effect But isn't this whole ...
  • A black plastic doesn't behave like a black body, in fact far from it. First, the difference in absorption vs radiation ratio of a black vs white plastic is minimal, specially when considering the ...
  • I got mine around 20-Jul. That is my experience :) Reading posts here, I also know that some are still waiting, so yes, there still seems to be some supply crunch
  • What exactly happened? Did it keep finding windshield itself to focus on, instead of your subject? Did it simply never found focus? Knowing what it was doing might get better responses If it was ...
