Hugo808: Not more bloody pixels! How big do you guys print for crissakes?

medium format is not just about pixel count, specially in digital era.

and yes, not so long ago (ok, depends, how you define few years or a decade) prints were made via rips etc big jambo posters etc with pictures, by 3-4 mpix resolution, if needed. it works, but depends on what needs or medium is all about.
for big fine prints and looking details 2 inchs from print, then yes, high mpix is a must, but in reality, this is not mandatory in a lot od cases, really.

james s. kennedy: Please explain to me why it's a good idea to have a spider on your finger.

Yuuuuck!

there are some native dangerous spiders in europe, too (black widow etc), but it's true, most of others are probably imported by "hobbyist" or just came by accidents with boats etc..

are you naive enough to think, this is really 100% dji decision? same "happend" to google, when nsa wants/demands collaboration.

tomblankenship-dot-com: My month old Dell XPS has 64GB RAM, i7-7700 processor, 256SSC, 2TB drive, 7 USB 3.0 ports, 2 USB 3.1 ports, BluRay read-write, 6GB Nvidia 1060 and 4-yr warranty for $1,699. Incredible, screaming box. Apple can't come close to price/performance. That's the way it's always been and will always be.

i was talking about pc build by company and get all support if needed. and i do use pcs for business, not playing games, thank you very much (photo, video cad, renderings you name it)
but even that aside, swaping pc components etc these days is chilld game realy. good backup system is needed anyways no matter what super fancy hardware you're using.

Decent pc doesn't have to be brand related. You can build a very capable and reliable machine for down to earth money. And since apple computers for last decade or so are intel based etc, there's no real difference from technical point of view. They looks nice, i agree , bur lately even that becoming obsolete..

mr.izo: shooting 10fps for 5 hours nosntop is not normal use, i would reckon.. So, canon did really well here, if you ask me.
Now, try that with sony, for example, just for fun..

heating etc is exactly what have on my mind, when i was suggesting putting sony on same torture test. and to go further, i also commenting before what it takes to get really good camera body design. we already forgot that..

dRomano: Their published MTF charts show pretty disappointing results, essentially unusable in the corners. High vignetting. These images show a lot of chromatic aberration. I'll wait for more objective data like from DxO, but so far this does not look like an Art series lens.

dxo objective? lol..

mr.izo: If canon does something good, is their body design (ergonomics etc). This is where for ex. Sony still have to learn a lot.. Love that flip out screen, more af points and dual af is great (they always goes this two digits technology route for that) etc..
They could introduce at least uhd, so you get cleaner 1080p out, but maybe some lantern hack will squeeze that out, who knows. I hope video read is from whole sensor area..
But if we put video aside, what i would like to know, if any changes were made to sensor in therms of better shadows recovering etc, where sony sensors excels. Full frame sensor for advanced photography is probably still #1 selling point for 6d costumers, having options for that big native canon lens and other gizmos variety, which just works.
My dream camera is still something like 6d (II, III), just a maybe tad smaller, sony tech style sensor, hopefully 4k on it, just when i need urge for video (and with dual af is not problem fro that)..

yet they don't know how to put them in their golden a7/9 series line up..

In reply to:

geekyrocketguy: What's the point of having 45 AF points if they're all in the center? I would far prefer 5 or 9 points that cover the entire frame so I can focus in the corners.

it's for the people, who use center point 95% of time shooting (for stills, you just filps out live view and pick/touch focus point where ever you need). and that's presents probably 95% of people which are into something like 6d..

In reply to:

mr.izo: how is focus breathing on this thing etc? probably something like 25-250 mm usable..

i'm talking about real focal lenght etc. it's no secret that manufactures does lie about this, specially on mega zooms (bigma etc), and usually this happens where you need focal lenght at most, aka close or closest min focus at highest zoom level. min focus at 400mm is usually measured in meters, not centimeters).
here's one good example
